Collaborate without boundaries
  • Love is Kind

    Another easy day for the challenge, atleast I thought so. With Michael not being in the house, it is hard for me to go grocery shopping, but I did it anyway. I thought about the holiday weekend and wanting to have his favorites here when he came. I brought...
  • Love is Patient

    Love is patient. Today's challenge was not difficult. I have been overlooking alot these days when it comes to my husband's behavior. Ever since finding out about his affair, I have working on my negative qualities and not his. Tonight was rough...
  • I don't think this is going to work

    Well I have been finished the Love Dare for one week. Life is not any different or any easier. Michael and I have had devotions together six times. He does not take it seriously at all. Each time he prays it is very generic--having nothing to do with...
  • Love Promotes Intimacy

    Hard dare for me today since Michael is still involved with the other woman. I gave Michael a copy of the book. I thought about asking him to read today's entry but that would be me being selfish. I am supposed to be working on me and not Michael...
  • Love Intercedes

    Another easy dare today. I have been praying for Michael since I started the dare. I have been praying that his heart would be guarded. I wish I prayed a long time ago. I am praying for his health--that he would stop smoking. I am praying that he will...
  • Love is Honorable

    When Michael moved back in, we each came up with some ground rules. One of the ground rules for me was that he sleep in the same bed with me. He has not been doing that. We discussed this issue. I chose to listen to MIchael without interrupting him or...
  • Love takes Delight

    Easy dare. I am a neat freak. I cleaned the house and finished the laundry before Michael got home. I also cooked dinner and had it ready for us to eat together when I got home from work. I also made lemon bars since it would have been Michael's dad's...
  • Love Fights Fair

    Me boundaries: 1) Do not touch Michael 2) Speak in a calm voice 3) Ask for a time out if I cannot control my emotions 4) Do not make demands-that is controlling Michael 5) If Michael says things that are hurtful, then share calmly how that feels
  • Love lets the other one win

    • 1 Comments
    Today's challenge was hard. I gave into Michael's requests about the other woman. I don't think that it helps Michael's soul for eternity. I don't think it helps my marriage. I gave into putting the other woman on the unlimited calling...
  • Love Cherishes

    After reading today's challenge, I am more convinced that Michael should be doing the Love Dare, but he won't. I gave him his own book. I asked him to go to marriage counseling. All nos. Yesterday Michael refused to give me some time to adjust...
  • Love is Unconditional

    Love is unconditional. I believe that my love for Michael is unconditional. Even through Michael's affair and his declaration of love for the other woman, I still love him. I have forgiven him but he still wants to be with her. I love him even though...
  • Love is a Covenant

    Well I have finished the Love Dare. It is kind of sad. I enjoyed reading each entry each day and then doing the challenges. I have seen changes in my own life but not in my marriage or in Michael. I have seen that I am working harder at being a better...
  • Love Endures

    I wrote my resolve to Michael and texted it to him. He said that he really liked it. I was so surprised. I asked Michael on Saturday night to pick one of three things that I would like him to do for me: go to marriage counseling, to have devotions together...
  • Love Fulfills Dreams

    There are a few different things that I can be doing to fulfill Michael's dreams. One will cost money, which there is not much of. The second will not cost anything but time and persistence. The third, I feel I have already been doing--becoming a...
  • Love Agrees in Prayer

    I asked Michael if we could pray and have devotions together yesterday. He said "we would see" which means "I don't want to". So I am going to continue to pray and have my devotions by myself. I was listening to a radio program...
  • Love is God's Word

    I have picked out a woman's devotional to use for myself and I have asked Michael if he would be willing to have devotions together at night. I would get a couple's devotional book for us to use. I don't think he will do it though.
  • Love is Accountable

    I am already in counseling. Been there since beginnning of June. It is helpful. I have been talking to three women who have been giving me advise-best friend whose husband has been having an affair also, Michael's sister, whose husband had an affair...
  • Love celebrates godliness

    I can't say that this is an easy dare at all. I don't see any godly characteristics in Michael anymore. He has completely turned away from the Lord and I don't know how to help him except to keep praying for him. I pray every day for his heart...
  • Love Completes Each Other

    I have asked Michael to forgive me in the past and will do it again today for not discussing and talking through the decision I made 7 years ago to quit my job and start my own school. I made a mess of our family life and our finances by doing this. Michael...
  • Love meets sexual needs

    I have been initiating sex for the last four months. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. I believe that sex is what is keeping Michael here. I know that in the past I didn't give Michael sex for all sorts of reasons and he was not happy...
  • Love and Marriage

    My marriage to Michael is the most important human relationship I have. I don't have any leave issues except that he needs to leave the other woman and that relationship. We fought alot today. I blocked the other woman's cell phone number from...
  • Love Brings Unity

    The division in my marriage is the other woman. I have not been praying for the relationship with her and Michael to end, I have been praying for Michael's heart to be guarded. Today I prayed that the relationship would end, as well as my usual prayers...
  • Love's Motivation

    Easy dare today since I have been praying for Michael continually. I have mainly been praying for Michael's heart and his relationship with God. I will keep praying for the restoration of his relationship with God. I texted Michael and told him that...
  • Love Makes Sacrifices

    I don't know what need Michael has. I know that he needs to get into counseling. I am trying to set that up for him. I know that he worries that I will text, email or call the other woman and tell her hurtful things. I am making myself accountable...
  • Love Encourages

    I know what Michael would say--I expect too much when it comes to keeping the house clean. I have been working on just doing things myself and not asking for Michael or Brooke to do anything. I have found that by not asking and just doing it myself, I...
