    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...

    The kids called me after school and asked if I was going to get to "visit" with them today. I told them I had no idea because the agreement made last week was supposed to go through yesterday about me "visiting" with them on Tuesday...

    My hearing for this protective order my wife got against me will probable be the same day as our d hearing on February 13th. So I won't see my kids for two weeks. My wife knows that this is devastating to me because I have never ever left my kids...
  • R2 Day 24 Love vs. Lust- Done

    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 worked from 7AM to 5PM and had to take my daughter to therapy at 6PM. I took all the kids with me and took them out to eat afterwards. We did not get home until 9:30PM. My wife had put the Christmas tree up and I did manage to ask her if there were...

    I don't know how much longer I can do this. The "parenting" class I was forced to take yesterday was nothing more than a damage control class. It made me feel ten time worse about this situation than before. It taught me that our children...

    I picked up the kids yesterday at 5:00. Nick refused to go so it was just six of us. I took them to Applebees and we had a good time. Right before I picked them up I talked to Kyle (Amber's brother- psychologist) and he told me to stay the course...

    My wife just called me and we talked for 8 minutes. She told me she got a job offer and explained all the details. I listened and offered advice. I suggested she pray about it and told her God would somehow send her an answer. I asked her what she wanted...
  • Day 38- Love Fulfills Dreams- In Process

    • 7 Comments
    This one has required much prayer. My wife is not a material person. I bought her the one thing I knew she wanted and needed for Christmas- a laptop, which she was very thankful for. I am asking God to help me discover something possibly spiritually or...

    I finished the letter. I'm definitely no Shakespeare but it was inspired by God. My hesitations in writing it had to do with the fact that she may not even read it and even if she does she won't care what it says. I wrote it with God in mind,...

    • 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...
  • 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 2 Love is Kind- Done

    • 7 Comments
    I prayed about what I could do that was unexpected. A few hours later I thought about washing my wife's feet. I feel like the Lord has been telling me to do this for a long time but I still haven't attempted it. I've been waiting for the right...

    • 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...

    • 6 Comments
    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...

    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 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...

    • 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...

    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...

    In response to Tim's comment yesterday about talking to my wife instead of handing her a note. I would love to but I have this unnecessary fear that she is going to say something to hurt me. Apparently I used to be the one who did that not I am in...

    Well, today is not fun so far. I woke up and texted my girls good morning. Trinity texted me back and said she was in Tennessee. Probably about five hours away from home. I was not aware of that and was not told nor asked if it was okay. I was kind of...

    Two more days of frustration. Aleigha finally texted me back Saturday night and said she got her phone back. So apparently my wife took it from her all day. She was punished for asking to spend time with me, however my wife told her it was because she...

    I love my wife. Not because I feel that way right now but because that is what I am commanded to do by God and I choose to obey God and love my wife even when she rejects everything about me. I'm so angry and upset with her. What she is doing still...

    I'm so tired of the drama. I can't even make it through one day without something happening. Yesterday I left work early to go to therapy. On my way there I dropped of Valentine's Day baskets to my four girls at their schools. I get them a...

    So today was pretty uneventful. I just hung around my friends house while he was at work. Watched a little basketball and played some Xbox. Aleigha Facetimed me so she and Allison could talk to me. When she did I noticed my in-laws in the background....
