An Update on "The Love Dare"

I posted earlier about the book Micah and I were going through together called The Love Dare. I wanted to write a little bit about what we've thought as we've been going through it together.

Bottom line, we absolutely love it.

We love that it forces each person to spend a little time each day thinking about how we can better serve one another. And for me, it's so gratifying to know that Micah's actively doing something each day to live out his love for me.

Even for couples like Micah and I who aren't going through major issues or problems (I mean how hard can it be when you're a newlywed and everything is bliss?), I would recommend it. It does seem targeted to solving problems that might already exist, but from our perspective, it's about preventing problems in the future. It's about learning to put one another first and guiding our hearts to love unconditionally and selflessly. It's about letting the Lord love through us.

And I love that it's forcing Micah and I to spend a little time each night talking about things that matter. We've talked about things I never thought about before, and when you're married to a man of few words, moments like that are invaluable.

So if you want a challenge and your partner is up for it (or even if they aren't), I recommend picking up a copy of The Love Dare and getting started.

Just know that it IS a challenge. And it requires some effort. But I think it's worth it. Love always is. :)

I think it's fantastic that you and Micah are doing the Love Dare. Fireproof is one of my favorite movies and I hope God continues to bless you and your marriage!
