    Some goodness came my way yesterday. An old high school friend saw my post on Facebook about needing a place to stay and told me I could stay with him as long as I needed to. I felt love. The kind if love I needed right now. It took me about three hours...

    First off I want to say that even with all the things that have been happening to me in my life I still feel a serious calmness inside my chest where I used to feel tightness and a heavy weight. The Lord has blessed me with great health, a job and many...

    I have to admit to myself that this is not going to work out. My wife got a protective order on me last night so I am not allowed around her or my children. I spent all weekend looking for our son. I reported him as a missing person and registered him...
  • R2 Day 26 Love is Responsible- Done

    • 3 Comments
    This morning I apologized to my wife for some things I could think of. I told her over the years I've let my pride get in the way of our lives. I told her I have been training myself to ignore those prideful feelings and lead my heart instead of following...

    After work I went to my bi-weekly Bible study and didn't get home until 9:00. I always leave that study feeling refreshed and ready to face anything in the world. When I got home my 10 year old was waiting for me and ended up going to bed with me...
  • R2 Day 24 Love vs. Lust- Done

    • 9 Comments
    I have given up every lustful thing in my life. I made a list during the first round. I identified the problems and I have been able to resist the devil since then. I mean really resist. I haven't given into one of my lustful urges. Even though my...

    I got a text around noon from my wife that our son was not at school. Here's the text: Her: Nick didn't go to school Trinity says he wants to kill himself. The best thing we can do is go get him and take him to Highland (a mental hospital) or...
  • R2 Day 22 Love is Faithful- Done

    • 6 Comments
    My life just keeps getting more complicated. I did text my wife yesterday and told her, as the dare said, that I choose to love her. Period. Even if she doesn't return the love. Dare done. Then the devil started working. I got a call at work from...
  • R2 Day 21 Day Love is Satisfied in God- Done

    • 4 Comments
    I read through Proverbs in the first round so I decided to start on the Psalms this time. I spent a lot of time on the 1st Psalm and some on the 2nd. The first Psalm was really tough on me because it talks so strongly about staying away from the wicked...
  • R2 Day 20 Love is Jesus Christ- Done

    • 1 Comments
    I live my life everyday for Jesus. My problem is that the flesh takes over far too often. I don't yell or get physical or angry, which I would have done a couple years ago, but I say things that come out as negative although I don't intend them...
  • R2 Day 19 Love is Impossible- Done

    • 7 Comments
    This whole process has seemed impossible. 1-1/2 times through the Love Dare and my wife is still the same. When I started I wanted her back so bad. Now 59 days later I still want her back but it is more for my children and for the overall testimony for...
  • R2 Day 18 Love Seeks to Understand- Done

    • 4 Comments
    My wife beat me home for the first time in forever. I started to make dinner when I got there but she said she would so I let her. She made chef salad and left it on the counter for everyone to get their own. I was starting to feel sick so I didn't...
  • R2 Day 17 Love Promotes Intimacy- Done

    • 6 Comments
    I don't believe in coincidences. I believe everything happens for a reason. Yesterday I got a text from the church that services were canceled. My first though was "How is God going to work on my wife like I thought He was?" I doubted God...
  • R2 Day 16 Love Intercedes- Done

    • 7 Comments
    What seemed like a short day ended up packed full of things to talk about. I read the dare early in the morning and prayed about it all day. I prayed for my wife's heart, both physically and spiritually. She has had three heart surgeries so she will...

    Yesterday I asked my wife if she wanted to watch a basketball game with me and our oldest son and if she wanted to watch a movie with me tomorrow. She didn't respond about the game but said I should let the kids pick the movie and told me that's...
  • R2 Day 14 Love Takes Delight- Done

    • 4 Comments
    My wife didn't come home last night. She said she was going to stay at her parents house because the weather was terrible and her patients lived closer to them, making it easier and safer. The first thing I did this morning was text my wife that I...

    My wife went to work this morning. She says this is the last weekend she will have to work since she took that new job. Hopefully she will now make it a priority to attend church regularly with the family since she should have every weekend off. Before...

    • 2 Comments
    I told my wife earlier in the day that I wanted to watch a family movie because we haven't done that in a long time. But I told her that we could do anything she wants, that her preference is first. She agreed to watch a movie even when I insisted...

    • 7 Comments
    My wife was sick all day and in bed with flu symptoms. She called off work which is very hard for her to do. I believe she puts work above everything- above family, above God, everything. (Again, that's just my opinion due to what I see) I did buy...

    I didn't have time to do much yesterday. I got home from work and talked to the kids a little about their day then got ready for church. My wife said she was not feeling well and wasn't going to go to church. It seems she may be coming down with...
  • R2 Day 9 Love Makes Good Impressions

    • 4 Comments
    After rereading this dare I realized that I have slacked off on this from the first round. I don't typically greet my wife at all. I don't talk to her at all unless I'm responding to a question. I just have a great fear that anything I say...

    I love you all and I tell you there IS hope. There is ALWAYS hope. NEVER give up on love. I want to share my story to show that there is hope for everyone. You, your spouse, everyone. When you are as far away from God as possible you are still only ONE...

    I burnt that negative list last night and said good riddance. That stuff is in the past. Then I texted my wife and told her that the life she has built with me, even though it is rocky right now, is a great accomplishment. I told her that if we are both...
  • R2 Day 7 Love Believes the Best- Done

    • 3 Comments
    I took my old list of positive things and added to it. I'm sure I could continue to add and add. It's pretty easy to think of positive things about the person you married. I did forget to contact her and tell her about one of the positive things...
