I love Fireproof! The acting was a bit stilted at times, but I found the message very good. (and I found out the 'actors' were not professional anyway, so they did very well considering).

The idea behind Fireproof (I don't know if it's one or two words either) is that a fire fighter doesn't leave his partner, it is an analogy for marriage.

They also have the 40-day Love Dare which has a great message as well. Worth doing!

Forgiveness is the heart of a great marriage. Over and over we are given opportunity to choose to forgive or not. God has forgiven us much and he is our example. The OUR FATHER says it so powerfully as we pray to God, "forgive us our debts AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS! That hit me like a ton of bricks when I first understood what that was saying.

Hang in there! Keep on choosing to forgive! With God's help it is possible!

I have made some big mistakes in my marriage & I give praise to the living God above for allowing my husband & I to still be married & to get past the mistakes. I'm glad that you could also sit down & forgive each other mistakes & can work these out. If you get time check out the movie Fire Proof (might be 1 word) It's an awesome movie & encourages marriages to stick through the fires of marriage instead of just taking the easy yet hard way out.

Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down.
Faith + grace = salvation

I pray that God will give you the strength to forgive her, pray for her, and help her to make whatever amends she needs to for her mistake. And I praise God that you were able to talk about it without cursing and yelling, etc.

I agree with Sam. We are only human and makes tons of mistakes in our lives. Greg and I have been down that road ourselves but we must forgive to heal. Hang in there and God will stay with you even through the bumps and well as the victories.

We are human and make mistakes. If you can't forgive someone else, you will not be able to forgive yourself. At least that is my opinion.

Hang in there. Your family IS so worth it

My wife and I had a bump in the road the other day. If you don't know my story you are welcomed to go through my pages and blogs. Anyway, I have made many mistakes in my marriage and my wife being a wonderful person is giving me a last chance for our family. My wife told me about a mistake she had made and there was some confusion about the mistake. As bad as it was to discover, Amber and I were able to talk to one another. We didn't yell, we didn't curse. We were able to comfort and help one another. It's a long road, I know that there will be bumps, but I confident and proud that my wife and I will face them together and through love and caring we'll hold each other up.
