Hello,

Has anyone else done the "Love Dare"? It is based off the movie Fireproof and my family life group at church has started the 40 day (althought we are doing it in 80 days) study. My fiance and I are participating together.

Day 1 -

i think what has been revealed to me this day is my bitterness. it started as frustration. it became anger and now bitterness. Thank you God for revealing it to me. I repent of it. I ask you to plant a tree in my bitter water to make it sweet. Thank you God!!!!!

In jesus name,

I have not completed the Love Dare, but I have done a few days of it. I have the study on my desk. Thanks so much for sharing what is being revealed to you! Thank you Jesus for speaking to me through my sister in Christ! Praying for you!

The toughest part was getting started but I'm glad i made it thru the first few days! I don't want to allow bitterness to take root. I want to feel blessed in Christ. So glad i didn't give up.

I am so glad you didn't give up! I need to get started again. December 1st seems like a great day to get started!

I did it. Well, I did 37 of the 40 days. My husband and I started it together, but around day 6 or 7 my father-in-law died, so my husband didn't continue. I went all the way to day 37. I don't know why I stopped. I guess I figured I had done most of it, and DH wasn't responding anyway, so I just didn't bother with the last 3 days.

I was pretty frustrated through most of it. It took about 14 days or so before it started getting into things that were relevant to me. All of the daily "dares" were things I do on a regular basis anyway. Then when my FIL died, my husband became unresponsive to everything. He didn't even notice I was doing it. Not that I did it for his acknowledgement completely, but it might have helped me feel better about it if he had been responding at least a little.

I might go through it again, but it's only been 5 months since my FIL passed away, so I don't know... DH said he would start it again, but it's been sitting on the coffee table for a week and he hasn't even picked it up, so I guess he isn't going to do it.

I found it on the net. I searched "Love Dare Day 1" and it came up. Each day is on the web. KLOVE radio's website is the one I used.

Hi, I have missed chatting with you here! How are you? How was the study for you? I have been thinking it will be one of the things I do this year to strengthen my relationship with Dh. I hope you are doing well and can pop in with an update! Hugs & Prayers!
