Collaborate without boundaries
  • Love Prays--Day 16

    This dare is super easy. I pray for my husband all the time. I pray for his stress level, for his safety, for his faith, for him to be who/what God has called him to be. I pray for his health. I just cover him in prayer every day. He has a hard job, and...
  • Honoring--Day 15

    • 1 Comments
    So, as usual, the hardest words of the dare are "above what you normally do". I recognize that I try to honor my husband as much as possible, so trying to figure out ways to improve on that, especially ways to improve on that when he's not...
  • Giving Something Up for More Time--Day 14

    • 1 Comments
    So today's dare is to give up something you would normally do to spend time with your spouse. I can't really accomplish this one in any huge way because my spouse isn't home. Also, when he IS home, we do everything together. There's not...
  • A Fair Fight Requires Unpacking The Baggage--Day 13

    • 1 Comments
    I feel like I have an advantage on this dare because we had this conversation really early on in our relationship. Since this isn't the first marriage for either of us, we were able to really learn from the things that went wrong in our other relationships...
  • Letting Him Win

    • 2 Comments
    My husband and I don't disagree a lot. We just have a similar upbringing and viewpoint of things, so there's not a lot to disagree on. There's very little where our views are so different that it's a matter of letting someone "win...
  • See a Need/ Meet a Need--Day 11

    • 2 Comments
    Today's dare is difficult to complete since we're not together. I know my husband's biggest need right now is to have some form of stress relief. That's a lot easier to accomplish when he's home and resting versus when he's dealing...
  • Unconditional Love-Day 10

    • 2 Comments
    I'm probably overthinking this one. I just am stumped about what kind of act would show unconditional love to my husband. I think my brain just isn't wired like that. I did my usual go-to and looked at other blog and journal entries for Day 10...
  • 6 seconds--Day 9

    • 1 Comments
    So today's dare is to change your greeting. I can honestly say that I'm happy to hear from my husband. Most of my greetings are on the phone, and my kids know when my hubby is calling because my face lights up every time. Doesn't matter what's...
  • Nothing to Do--Days 7 and 8

    • 1 Comments
    This post brings us current on my backlog of journal entries, and I find that for these 2 days there was nothing for me to do. Make a list of the positives of my husband? No problem. There's a laundry list of good qualities that he possesses. Make...
  • Room to Breathe--Day 6

    • 1 Comments
    So I think this day's "dare" was extremely timely for me. I mean the rift in my marriage is the result of overwhelming depression brought on by my stress levels being way too high right now, and that means I'm doing an extremely poor...
  • Learning Curves--Days 4 and 5

    • 1 Comments
    Checking in with my husband on what he needs or what I can do for him was easy. It's something I do often...at least once a day when he calls. I think this has less to do with the fact that I'm really that thoughtful and more to do with the fact...
  • Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is--Day 3

    • 2 Comments
    So I wasn't able to post this on the actual day since my husband was home. I thought it would be awkward to explain my posting and what I was doing with the Love Dare book. I don't want him to feel any particular way about what I'm doing;...
  • The best laid plans--Day 2 continued

    • 2 Comments
    So with great plans I began my day thinking of the ways I could show kindness to my husband, but almost from the beginning all those plans fell apart. He couldn't find the driver for his hotel airport shuttle, so he was late checking in for his flight...
  • The Kindness Conundrum

    • 4 Comments
    So here I am on Day 2. The nothing negative thing has been fairly easy. I know it will get harder in the future as I try to get off depression medication and life starts getting to me again, but for now I'm trying to be mindful of it. My husband has...
  • Here's to hope

    • 2 Comments
    My husband and I have known each other for 20 years. He's my highschool sweetheart, but we didn't marry in highschool. Instead, we married other people, got divorced (in my case twice), and then reconnected 4 years ago. My husband is a wonderful...
