Collaborate without boundaries

Day 3

  • Comments 4

This is a difficult task. I remember why I gave  up last time I tried to do this. It's because I don't have the financial means to be able to do many of the dares. 

  • Just do them to the best of your ability. Concentrate on the thought, gifts don't have to be elaborate. Hang in there, you will experience so much growth if you stick with it.

  • Don't give up! It's going to be a tough ride, but just stick to it. Google ideas if you have to. Can you run to the dollar store and find something that reminds you of her? Does she have a favorite snack you can get or make? If it's one thing I've learned through these dares is to be as creative as possible. The dollar amount should not mean anything, but the thought behind it and you fulfilling the dare to the best of your ability.

  • Even a pack of her favorite chewing gum.  or if there is a favorite candy bar or something inexpensive just as the others said.  If you didn't complete the dare, move on to the next dare.  

  • When I needed to give a gift I didn't spend a dime. I found a board and sanded it smooth and stained it. All with stuff that was laying around the garage. Then I found a piece of rope and nailed to it and painted Ecclestiastes 4:12 on it- "Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken." I think it is beautiful and I wanted to emphasize the strength that husband and wife have when God is part of their lives. I don't think she gave it a thought but I put a lot of time and work into it. For free. So I was satisfied. And I learned a lot from studying that verse.

    Just don't give up. I just finished the book and I feel like my wife still hates me. I'll just do it again because I learned so much the first time through.
