  • April 19, 2018- Round 3 Day 2

    • 5 Comments
    I read day 2 and had no idea what I could possibly do. I prayed multiple times about it. Then as I plugged my phone in at work this morning I thought I will just send my wife a text. We have had no contact in three months and that would be totally unexpected...

    • 3 Comments
    I had to think and think about this one, this time. What I have done in the past few months is read and read, including a lot of the Bible. I'm getting overwhelmed with the different books I have so I decided to slow down on the reading and focus...

  • R2 Day 4 Love is Thoughtful- Done

    • 3 Comments
    I have been so nervous all morning thinking about calling my own wife. How silly! I resolved to only ask how she was doing and if there was anything I could do for her. Nothing more / nothing less. So I called and she answered. I asked how her day was...

    Ok. Here we go. Round 2. I could never explain how much I've changed in 40 days. If you had know me at this time last year you would not believe I am the same person. My patience, my Biblical knowledge ,everything about me is different. I have a new...

    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...

    • 6 Comments
    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...

    • 3 Comments
    So today, even though I have no contact with my wife, I will start the dares again. This will be my third round. I will forget about all the man made legal garbage and do the dares because it is the Godly thing to do. If I get in trouble legally for harassment...
  • 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...
  • Day 32 Love Meets Sexual Needs- Done

    • 5 Comments
    The day before yesterday my wife was upset about the kids not sleeping in their own beds and I told her that she should also be sleeping in her own bed. She said she was NOT sleeping with me. I know I should not have "told" her because that...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • R2 Day 8 Love is not Jealous

    • 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...
  • April 23, 2018- Round 3 Day 6

    • 8 Comments
    I need to completely focus on only the dare. Nothing more, which is what I seem to want to do. I am writing my wife a letter. I'm trying to be very careful what to say in it, using Paul's letters to the first century churches as examples. I know...
  • Day 35 Love is Accountable- Done

    • 2 Comments
    I chose my preacher as my mentor. I've spoken to him a lot over this and he has shared personal things with me and assures me that I'm not the only one with marriage problems. He has a Godly marriage and I respect him tremendously. I asked him...

    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...

  • Day 34 Love Celebrates Godliness- Done

    • 2 Comments
    Here's a couple of responses to Tim's recent responses to my posts: I don't tell her I love her often. I try to limit it to once or twice a day so she DOES know I do. I often add "unconditionally" of "no matter what you do"...
  • 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...

    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 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 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...

    • 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 11 Love Cherishes

    • 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...
