    Today's chapter is about how love is impossible without God. In looking back at the last several years of my relationship with God and my marriage God has put up with a lot from me. Before my husband I was seeing a man who I didn't know was also...

    No Love Dare for me today. We spent most of the night trying to charge my dad's oxygen concentrator in the car. We had to call 911 when we couldn't keep it charged and we ran out of back up tanks. Thankfully the fire department brought us another...

    Today's dare is not one that I can complete as I will not be staying at home tonight. It is to make dinner for my spouse and to really try and get to know them better as I did when we were first dating. Reading through the chapter go me a bit as I...

    My dad is home and doing much better today. My sister and I spent the night at my parent's house to help and I am pooped! I have not read my chapter today and I hate to say that I'm just not sure I can today. Yesterday I had an appointment with...

    Today's chapter on praying for your spouse really got me the last round and also did again today. I'm finding myself complaining a bit about my spouse again and at a loss on how to even pray for him or our relationship. I want to pray great breakthrough...

    Some will be grateful to hear that I've still been reading my chapters. I'm doing the dares that include my husband to the best of my ability but I'm also at peace with letting God deal with him as I work on me. Tonight I decided to see what...

    It's been several days since I've even thought about the LD. The day after my dad's bypass they thought he had a heart attack and lost a graph. Now they're uncertain of what happened (I believe that's due to the power of prayer). They...

    My dad had his bypass today and everything went pretty well. He's in ICU and they working to get him off the ventilator. He's in a lot of pain but they're working to get it controlled. 2 hours out of surgery I got a call from my attorney....
  • Today my husband wins

    • 5 Comments
    After a couple of days of trying to get my car back from my spouse, I let him win. See, my car has never really been my car. From the day we got it my husband has taken it over. Before our separation I could count on both hands how many times I've...

    Today I woke up and ordered some things for Christmas. I ordered my husband's oldest her birthday gift and I also ordered both of his kids Christmas stuff as well. Since he's voiced not wanting me to do this I went ahead and messaged to let him...
  • Greetings....

    Today's dare is on how we greet our spouse and the effects it can have. I'm not sure if I will get the opportunity to greet my spouse today or not but I sure hope so. I've really tried to focus on gratitude lately. I wake up and, in my foggy...

    Today is a good day! I woke up today with a grateful heart and it definitely sets the tone of my day in a more positive direction. Today I told my husband that I'm glad he's had this time to spend with his parents and for the girls to spend time...

    I'm not going to lie..... This weekend has been tough. I had a kid free weekend and was determined to make the most of it. Friday night I went to dinner with my best friend and we crafted all night. Saturday I got my Christmas stuff out and tree put...

    Yesterday's dare was the unexpected act of kindness. During the last round I bought him his favorite candy. Yesterday I got him some new boxers because I know he needs them. Today is investing in your spouse and buying them something to show you were...

    I hate to admit this but the LD was the last thing on my mind. I didn't read the chapter and didn't even realize that I hadn't until tonight. My dad has 100% blockage to the entire right side of his heart, 85-90% in the top left and 60% in...

    I woke up today in a great mood! Last night I re-wrote my vows in the journal that my husband has access to. I prayed like crazy over this next round of the LD and the kids and I had a great morning! Last week my stepdad came into the medical office that...

    Today's chapter was on God's word. My husband and I don't read our bible together and honestly neither of us have really been in God's word as we should have been. I found myself in a very stagnant place. When I started this dare I did...

    Well, I'm 3/4 of the way there and things are far worse than when I started this journey. (Not to sound all negative. lol) Today's chapter is on unity and, after some reflection, I'm not sure that my husband and I have had any unity for quite...

    Today I am struggling a bit. I'm struggling with knowing God's will for my life. I want my marriage to work and I want to please God. The bible says that we are to submit to our husband's as unto the Lord...... I know that I am to submit to...

    Today's dare is hard for me. Sacrifice...... I have no idea what to sacrifice for my husband at the moment. I decided to get out and wash all of his winter thermals and bigger jacket for work. He works outside and it is beginning to get a little chili...

    It's been a few days since I've written on here. (I have kept up with my other journal a bit better.) No change with my husband. I have continued doing the love dare but it is very hard when there is no communication. There has been a lot of reflection...
