Stephen Kendrick - The Love Dare

New York Times Best-Seller 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Common Sense Love, November 3, 2008
For marriages in trouble, and for those people who want to keep things out of trouble, "The Love Dare," is a great list of ideas. Nothing here will cause the reader to go "Wow! Brilliant!" because everything here is common sense. It might not feel natural, and some ideas will be difficult for the couple in strife. The majority of couples will find it useful in its practicality.

Why is it common sense? Try day one, for example,

"Resolve to demonstrate patience and to say nothing negative to your spouse at all. If the temptation arises, choose not to say anything. It's better to hold your tongue that to say something you'll regret."

Easier said than done, but worth doing just the same.

Either partner can apply the content solo. In fact, it is structured that way.
