  • 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 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 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 22 - Reckless Love

    • 2 Comments
    I don't know where to start with this entry, I'm surprisingly at ease given the conversation that took place. I decided to do the dare face to face. I'm starting to get a bit of a competitive side to these dares and thought I'd face my...
  • 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 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 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 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 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 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 31 - Unsolicited Advice

    • 2 Comments
    I was able to discuss briefly the problem that I have with my parents' advice getting in the way of decisions that my SO and I will make together. We'll come to an agreement, I'll bring it up in discussion to my parents and they'l give...
  • 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 21 - "At Last I See The Light"

    • 2 Comments
    I had prayed really hard about this one only because I did not know where to start: Psalms, Proverbs, or John? I had a dream about saying that I chose the book of John and all day during work, I felt like I needed to read the book of John. I finally sat...
  • 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 9 - No Impression Without Expression

    • 1 Comments
    I've got some catching up to do with my journal entries on here, it's been difficult to try to do them each night but I do handwrite my journal entries to the best of my ability. This particular dare for me is still challenging (but what dare...
  • 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 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....
  • Day 27 - Distracted

    • 2 Comments
    This dare had been pretty much covered in previous discussions with my SO and, given his somewhat coldness in the last phone conversation, I knew that he wouldn't be up to discussing anything again. I took the time to pray for him. I think I was also...
