The Love Dare days 1-4


The Love Dare
Stephen Kendrick

So, I watched the fireproof movie a few months ago and liked it for the most part.  This weekend I picked up a copy of the love dare and started reading it.  It is a 40 day guide to strengthening your marriage.  Every day has some advice backed up by bible verses.  Then the book has a love dare, that you are to perform and write about in the journal space.  My wife may end up reading the book and I don't really like to write in books so I will do mine here. 

Day 1- say nothing negative.  This wasn't too hard.  It was an easy day I guess, we didn't disagree on anything and I didn't really have anything negative today.  She probably can't tell the difference.  This one seems to carry over everyday though so we will see. 

Day 2- Do something nice (or something like that, I don't have it in front of me right now)  I did some things without being asked and pitched in a bit more around the house.  Don't know if it was noticed, but it doesn't matter. 

Day 3- Buy something to let her know you are thinking about her.  I cheated.  I made brownies.  We are currently saving money and I thought it would be about the same.  I didn't eat any until she got home that night and had the first one (i did get to some of the batter though).  Still don't know if she is noticing.

Day 4- Call her during the day just because.  Just did this one.  It kind of comes off as I don't have anything to do right now so I just called you though.  We are married with children so the call quickly becomes about something.  Unless she is reading what the dares are supposed to be for everyday, she still isn't going to notice anything.  Maybe they have a cummulative effect. 

I will update as I go.
