Dare to Try,
This review is from: The Love Dare (Paperback)
I had planned to wait until I completed the 40 days before writing this review. But I have come to decide that it won't matter if my husband and I reunite to determine this book a personal success. My circumstances are different than most. My husband & I have been separated for almost a year and living 2,000 miles apart. You would think that would make doing the daily dares difficult. I do it all by email. I give a brief review of that day's topic and then I talk about what I would do "if I were home". My husband swore he'd delete the emails without opening but evidently he couldn't bring himself to do that. I'm only on day 16 and we are communicating by phone and our last conversation he said "if you come home, we'll need to take things slow". A month ago he said he couldn't wait until the year was up to file for divorce. Like in the movie - don't do anything about ending the marriage until you give it just 40 more days. I am prayerfully hopeful that this will be the first 40 days of our new life together and a wonderful testimony to others in trouble. But, if not, the insight about myself that has been revealed day by day will make me a better person in any relationship. Good luck and God bless.

Good luck to you. Marriage is never easy, but trying to mend a relationship thousands of miles apart has to be extremely difficult. It sounds like the door is open and hopefully you will meet each other in the doorway!! Best of luck and God Bless you both.

Bonnie, I have just read your review of The Love Dare, and by now I hope you and your husband have inteed met in the open doorway, as Deborah said. My husband did this alone about a year ago, I just didn't want to. The difference it made in him was unreal. After 25 years of marriage we were close to divorce. We just finished the dare together and I could finally answer his marriage proposal! LOL! I said YES!! I hope your wishes and dreams have come to be a reality for you. And wherever you are, may God truly bless you. Your sister in Christ, gina

I pray that you have found piece and that you have grown, as a couple or an individual. My marriage was on the brink of divorce until my wife surprised me with her own enlightenment delivered by God. I was wanting divorce and am now questioning everything I was thinking, just like Katherine... Bless you and bless anyone who takes just that extra minute to say I love you and maybe this can work. There is a long struggle ahead for us but I have full faith that God is on our side and is guiding us to what is, in the end, positive and right.
