"The Love Dare" - Take the Challenge!
May 01, 2013
Many of you have probably heard of or seen the movie, Fireproof. The movie was actually inspired by this book, The Love Dare. The book itself was the main feature in the movie. The Love Dare presents a 40-day challenge for husbands and/or wives to take at any point in their marriage. I would highly recommend this book and challenge married couples everywhere to try and make it through this 40-day adventure. This challenge could be a great way to start off the beginning of your marriage or create more intimacy after several years of marriage. It could also help marriages that are in trouble or struggling to practice unconditional love for each other.
In this book, you will find that each day has a specific lesson that is focused on for that days’ challenge. At the end of the lesson, there will be a dare for you to complete that day. There are pages reserved for you to write your thoughts on for the day or to describe how you completed the dare, including a place to check off that you finished the dare. Of course, if you’re using one of our Library books, we ask that you please not write in it! Instead, I would recommend writing in a journal like I did.
I will admit that it took me longer than 40 days to make it through this book and complete all the challenges. I think many couples will find some of these dares are fairly easy while others take some time to think over. Our Library books only checkout for 28 days, but you are allowed to renew your items up to two times, resulting in a total of 56 days if no one else has a hold on it. MCPL has several copies of this book in regular print, large print, and even on audiobooks! You can call us, stop by our branch, or put a hold on this book through our online catalog.
I hope you’ll dare to take the challenge as so many others have before you! I can attest that this book has changed the way I see my husband and show him love unconditionally. My hope is that it will do the same for you.
