Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this thread. Worked 13hr days the last two PLUS we had our first snowfall and the roads were HORRIBLE. Which made my days, in reality, 16hr days.........with little sleep. UGH. Anyways.....

DADDYSMONEY2: I could definitely post some highlights if you were interested. Today was day 4, and the focus was on thoughtfulness and how love is always "other-centric." It's focus was on the fact that true love ALWAYS considers the other person, even in the smallest of situations. The dare today was easy for me as it's something I do every day anyways. The dare: find a few minutes to connect with your spouse and find out what's going on and if there's anything you can do for him/her.

CHIMDINDU: Great! Have you gotten the book at all? What do you think? What are your opinions/feelings/results/observations?

The book sounds great, is there anyway that we can follow along with you without having to purchase it? Maybe just hit the strong points with us everyday? Sounds great, what a wonderful gift for your hubby. I think my hubby would just look at it with a kind of "oh you REALLY shouldn't have" kind of smirk. LOL He's not much for getting in touch with his "husband" side! LOL

I KNOW GOD WON'T GIVE ME MORE THAN I CAN HANDLE..SOMETIMES I WISH HE WASN'T SO CONFIDENT IN ME!

It's a 40 day "dare" that builds on itself every day......It's purpose is to show you how to "lead your heart and not follow it," in other words, how to truly love your spouse. It's a great book. Again, check out the link. It has much more information.

If you wouldn't mind explaining what the Love Dare book is. It sounds very interesting. I might just join you.

Remember the Fireproof thread? I had an idea this weekend........I counted down the days from Christmas and found that 40 days was yesterday, the 16th..... I decided that as part of my Christmas present to my husband, I'd do the Love Dare book during the 40 days leading up to Christmas and keep a journal all the while, and then give him the journal at Christmas. What do you think? Anyone care to join me?
