Love Dare Challenge

Alright girls!!! Grab your calenders... silence the children... and sneak away for a second. We have some important information to discuss...

I've heard from a few of you recently, and I place myself in complete agreement, that overall ...marriage is hard. Many of us are in a difficult season of marriage. A season where miscommunication is frequent, misunderstandings common, and disputes- numerous. And yet we all desire for our marriages be healthy and fruitful- whatever the cost.


Well, instead of sitting around and sharing yet another story of just how difficult marriage can be- I've decided to do the 40 Day Love Dare!!! If you've seen Fireproof you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you haven't... all you need to know is that this book, was created for and is designed to, IMPROVE MARITAL RELATIONSHIPS... one day (challange) at a time.

It's 10$ at your local bookstore and promises to be worth every penny.

And since encouragement, support and accountability are always helpful is any challenge... I figure we can all go at this together. And document our results day after day in the comment section.

I won't be posting anything else for these 40 days. This Love Dare Challenge will be my priority and I hope you will join in. No matter how good your marriage is currently... I will venture to say that after these 40 days of loving your spouse in new, selfless ways- it will be even better!

We will be starting this challenge Friday October 17th and running straight through Wednesday November 26th. Notice we end the challenge the day before Thanksgiving... Oh the praises we will sing on Thankgiving when we see all the Lord has done in and through our marriages throughout 40 days.




I'm having a button made... hopefully it will be available soon so you can post it to your blog if you choose to participate. It will also help to spread the word so more people can join us...

Comment if you are joining in... I couldn't be more excited!

This sounds like a great challenge! I haven't seen the movie or heard of the book b4, but both sound delightful. I will have to see what I can do about this urge to want to see BOTH! Thanks for the info. I was over visiting Mari and she mentioned you were doing...sounds intriguing!

I think this is a fabulous idea. I will have been married 20 years in December and we have had our ups and downs. However, we have settled into a coexistence and we mainly get along fine. But... as you say, things can always be better. I'm going to look for this book and if I can find it here, I am going to do this.

Blessings,
Mary
