  • Wow - So... This is the start of a journey within my relationship that I am going to blog and share about to see if others are experiencing the same responses.

    Today was a great start - I was able to complete the day with out fail. No matter what came my way I stayed quiet and did not allow the enemy to take charge of my mind. 

    Ironically I am doing the book on my own at the start. Knowing that I was going to begin the book I planned a scavenger hunt day on Sunday to set the tone of a new beginning and me making a valiant effort to show, speak, and demonstrate more love. If I am honest - I have completed this book in a previous relationship and learned a lot of the values before. This time around - I am experiencing very different love. 

    My better half is 40 years old, father of a son in which he just became the full time parent the very first time, and NEVER MARRIED!! He has a very different style of communication and love. That has really put a block as we continue to grow. Since we both have different love languages. Today was eye opening of the things that I have forgot since the last time I completed the book. I remained silent in negative comments... made no mention of the book we will see where it goes.


  • Welcome.  You may get more responses if you are able to post in The Love Dare Journal section, if you click on the Community tab, it will take you there.  If you have problems posting there, come back here.

    Most of us come here because of our marriages falling apart.  Is this true of you or are you trying to make something good even better?  

    Look at this as a journey between you and Christ, not you and him.  He will be used as a tool to mold you.  Do a dare a day, no more, no less.  Not sure if you're saying you're married or not.  If you aren't , there is a dare or two that are only for married couples.  these dare(s) do not do as intended. The rest, do as intended without changing them to make them easier.  Do not read ahead in the book, other than the appendix, especially about leading the heart.  Have no expectations of him when you do the dares.  

    Keep the dares just for you to do.  If he knows you are doing the dares  he will look at it as a step by step guide to win him back or influence him then when the dares are over you go back to your old ways.
