The #1 New York Times best seller. More than 5 million units sold.

Unconditional love is eagerly promised at weddings, but rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes are often replaced with disappointment in the home. But it doesn’t have to stay that way.

The Love Dare, as featured in the popular new movie Fireproof (from the makers of Facing the Giants), is a 40-day challenge for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love. Whether your marriage is hanging by a thread or healthy and strong, The Love Dare is a journey you need to take. It’s time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage. Take the dare!

Synopsis:

The Love Dare is a 40-day guided devotional designed to strengthen every marriage and the same powerful book that plays a pivotal role in the new movie Fireproof.

Synopsis:

Too many marriages end when someone says “I’ve fallen out of love with you” or “I don’t love you anymore.” The Love Dare discusses how these statements reveal a lack of understanding about the fundamental nature of true love.
 
As featured in the popular new movie Fireproof, from the team that brought us Facing the Giants, The Love Dare is a 40-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love.

The Love Dare is a really unique book! It's essentially a program that you go through with your partner and it's powerful stuff. Described as a "forty-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love." It may not guaranteed fix a problematic relationship, but it will help you see the good in your partner and what you love about him/her.

The book has forty days of entries that each discuss a unique aspect of love and then offers a dare for you and your spouse. I found some of the dares really easy and others were quite hard. It also has a journal section for you to chart your progress.

It will force you to remember all the things you love about this person. Definitely a good way to sharpen the saw in your relationship and bring two people closer together.

Be Daring

As most people might already know, this book is based upon the Christian movie "Fireproof", which is about a man who saves his marriage by completing a character-testing, 40-day list of "dares" suggested to him by his father. Like the movie, the book of course is Christian based as well.

I loved the movie and the book is more of the same. However I looked at both of them from the perspective of a person happily married for over 15 years. I can tell you that while I don't practice all the dares in the book, my spouse and I are good about doing many of them- and of course there's always room for improvement. From my personal experience, I feel like concentrating on the kinds of ideas presented in the book have been absolutely key to making our marriage last.

Now the book itself also consists of a 40-day list of dares. For each day, there's about a page and a half or so of advice, followed by a specific dare and some space for you to write down your personal reflections. Dares range from things such as practicing patience to writing out a renewal of your vows. The guys will probably particularly like Day 32!

As you can tell, I highly recommend going to see the movie and reading the book. In a society that places a high value on looks and money, while sporting a 50% divorce rate, its nice to see more movies and books coming out that get people more focused on the right values in life. Even if you don't do anything more than just glance through the book, you're going to be given something to think about. Other self-help books I enjoyed include "Finding Happiness in a Frustrating World".
