Basically we'll be using the book The Love Dare & just following it... what it says, we'll do (I don't have it yet so I can't really tell you the dares yet)! You can actually preview the book at Wal-Mart or another bookstore of your choice if you would like. Also, if you haven't watched the movie, Fireproof, it might be helpful in answering some of your questions... it's a GREAT movie! I love it. In the movie it looks as though you do nice things for your DH like hold your tongue when you really want to tell him off, do nice things for him (in the movie, Kirk Cameron got his wife a cup of coffee, flowers, etc). Basically, you LOVE him (DH).
BTW, I haven't actually done The Love Dare myself... this is a first for me too!
I'm already signed up and looking forward to it. My step-mom is a wonderful Christian and often shares with me how she works on her marriage by loving her husband as she loves God. It's a unique concept to wrap your mind around, but what an awesome thing to bring to your relationship! Our pastor who married us spoke of this during our ceremony.
Mike and I already own the Love Dare, and have been though it. I've learned so much about patience, and re-committing to my marriage every day. It is a wonderful journey, and I think it can be repeated every 40 days. Maybe I'll sign up and we'll do it again.
