The Love Dare - yes, the book which the film "Fireproof" was based around.
The Love Dare is not about changing your spouse to be the person you want them to be.
It is about learning to live a life filled with love.
It is about chosing to lead your heart instead of following it.
It is about recognizing love as a decision. A choice we make.
It is about demonstrating love as it was meant to be and changing yourself - and your relationship - for the better.
The book begins with this warning:
"RECEIVE THIS AS A WARNING.
THIS FORTY DAY JOURNEY CANNOT
BE TAKEN LIGHTLY.
IT IS A CHALLENGING AND OFTEN
DIFFICULT PROCESS, BUT AN INCREDIBLY
FULFILLING ONE. TO TAKE THIS DARE
REQUIRES A RESOLUTE MIND AND A
IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE SAMPLED OR
TESTED, AND THOSE WHO QUIT EARLY WILL
FORFEIT THE GREATEST BENEFITS. IF YOU
WILL COMMIT TO A DAY AT A TIME FOR
FORTY DAYS, THE RESULTS COULD CHANGE YOUR
LIFE AND YOUR MARRIAGE.
CONSIDER IT A DARE, FROM OTHERS
WHO HAVE DONE IT BEFORE YOU."
I took the Love Dare. In following posts, you will see what I learned about myself and what happened as a result.
