  • Day 19 - Playing Catch Up Again...

    • 5 Comments
    Fell behind again on the journal entries but not on the dares! When reflecting on this dare I realized quite a few things: I had not given 100% to God I still look at my SO's wrongdoings and selfish behavior instead of focusing on mine "Why do...
  • Day 30 - Unity and Division

    • 4 Comments
    I have a problem with wanting to always be in control and my stubbornness. I'm sure it stems from not having any control over decisions growing up, and I'm sure my stubbornness comes from my dad. In the past my SO and I have had problems compromising...
  • Day 28 - Surrendering

    • 3 Comments
    I had a couple of what I thought were good ideas for this dare but I felt I faced an obstacle with each one. I had originally wanted to take my SO's car to clean it inside and out since he never has the time to do it himself but the weather halted...
  • Day 29 - New Year, Different Dare

    • 3 Comments
    How cliche would it be to tell your SO that you love them right at the stroke of midnight? Well, that's exactly what I did. Being that he was at his parents and I was at mine, I was not able to do it in person and calling was out of the question at...
  • Day 18 - Is he cracking?

    • 3 Comments
    Funny how God works sometimes. I knew this day was coming because I had seen the movie countless times, just didn't know when exactly it would be. Lo and behold, this dare would land on the day I was off from work. I had the day to prepare mentally...
  • Day 23 - Be Careful Little Ears What You Hear...

    • 3 Comments
    The biggest influence for me that I know of is music. Music can determine the mood I will have for the day or even heighten the mood or attitude I already have. It can trigger certain memories or emotions for me. When listening to secular or worldly music...
  • Day 5 - 3's a crowd but 4 is a party

    • 3 Comments
    I prayed a lot about this one since I knew this had to be a face to face conversation. I invited him over after he was off of work and surprisingly he agreed. I was vague as to why I needed to talk to him hoping it'd pique his curiosity and it sure...
  • Day 7 - Believe the best, forget the rest

    • 3 Comments
    When I was writing the lists, the positive attributes actually came a lot easier than I thought it would. I almost finished the front and back of the page I had to stop. Only a week ago I was so angry and hurt by him, I would not have been able to write...
  • Day 8 - Green with envy

    • 2 Comments
    Yesterday was Day 8 for me. I prayed and prayed and prayed but I could not get my heart in the right place. My SO recently told me he received his Christmas bonus and was using it towards our daughter for her birthdbay party coming up. Initially, I thought...
  • Day 6 - Margin of error

    • 2 Comments
    So much easier said than done. I was able to reflect and write down where I needed to add margin to my schedule as well as wrong motivations that I needed to release. The biggest one is learning how to separate myself from work once I'm at home. No...
  • Day 1 - it begins

    • 2 Comments
    I had started the Love Dare before I happened across this site. I'm glad I came across this though so that I have a somewhat private place that I can journal and see how others have gone through their dares. Most of the communication between myself...
  • Day 2 - his birthday

    • 2 Comments
    On this day it just so happened to be his birthday. I took our daughter out shopping for art supplies and ordered some 4x4 pictures to be printed of him and our daughter together. I had her paint (as well as a 3 year old can paint) 2 smaller canvases...
  • Day 3 - UberEats to the rescue

    • 2 Comments
    By this day, with the success still buzzing in my head from the canvases we painted, I was starting to feel more confident despite nothing but silence on his end. He works 12 hour days 5-6 days a week, some days with hardly a break for him to eat. I figured...
  • Day 4 - New phone, who's this?

    • 2 Comments
    I prayed harder than I ever have in the past 3 years before attempting this dare. Communication between my significant other and I is next to none so working up the courage to call or text him something other than a discussion revolving around our daughter...
  • Day 10 - When Unconditional Meets Conditions

    • 2 Comments
    It's only day 10 and I'm feeling weak emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. I think it's a mixture of his cold-heartedness and lack of any changes, the stress of our daughter constantly being passed back and forth, and my mother...
  • Day 11 - Thawing the Iceberg

    • 2 Comments
    I could not go through with this one. I had worked all day long and ran errands even after work. Even if I had time to go through with the dare, there was no way that he'd even let me close to him. He will make sure that there is always space between...
  • Day 12 - He Shoots, He Scores!

    • 2 Comments
    I've been giving into a lot of areas lately with him except for one area: his laptop. At his mom's, he has access to a desktop computer, a tablet, and his brother's laptop. I don't have access to any of those and work mainly from his laptop...
  • Day 13 - Love fights, and fights, and fights

    • 2 Comments
    It's been getting more difficult to keep up with the journal entries but I'm trying to make time when I can. This particular dare landed on the day of our daughter's birthday. The day was cold, rainy, and busy with three year olds running...
  • Day 14 - Taking Delight In Lieu of Rejection

    • 2 Comments
    The day after our daughter's party was filled with many errands I needed to run for work. We had an important event coming up and I had volunteered to help out as best as I could. After I had finished reading this chapter, however, I decided to cancel...
  • Day 15 - Honorable Mention

    • 2 Comments
    I feel I completely failed this dare. I prayed on it, but I think I was distracted with the upcoming event for work and the tasks I needed to take care of. I reached out to his mom for advice and again, she told me to pray and journal about it. It was...
  • Day 16 - The Power of Prayer

    • 2 Comments
    I feel I've been doing this dare since I began this journey. I've been praying for him and for myself. I ended up with four things on my prayer list for him: Pray his heart will soften so he can find forgiveness for himself and for me, Pray he'll...
  • Day 17 - Undelivered

    • 2 Comments
    This dare landed on yet another crazy day for me. There was a fashion show charity event we had been putting together so I was literally working from the time I got up till about midnight. I had written him a letter expressing many different things but...
  • Day 24 - Love Vs Lust, Head Vs Heart

    • 2 Comments
    I made the mistake of not reading this dare until I came home late at night. Or maybe it wasn't a mistake at all, I don't know. I had been trying to ease myself into working out again at the gym. It had been something I wanted to do for a long...
  • Day 25 - Forgiven But Not Forgotten

    • 2 Comments
    I have been praying about this for a while. I really want to let it all go, "forgive and forget" sort of scenario but I know that part will most likely come with time. I'm not angry anymore, I'm just sad. I'm sad he had to go to...
  • Day 26 - Swallowing My Pride

    • 2 Comments
    My little one and I have been battling the flu and my symptoms have only made me more miserable to be around. I hit the floor hard in prayer for this dare. My manager had keyed in a sick day and some PTO days for me so I had the rest of the week off....
