My husband and I had a very large argument in which we talked about the big D…and I don’t mean Dallas. There was lots of anger and fighting and tears….and it was a blessing.
Ok…I’m not drinking…I’m not on any drugs…so where was the blessing in the big D talk? It was in the power of Fireproofing your Marriage.
Fireproof is a movie starring former Growing Pains actor Kirk Cameron. It is about a fireman and his wife who are going through the beginnings of a divorce and his attempt to prevent the divorce by following a Love Dare Challenge set before him by his father. If you haven’t seen the movie, I HIGHLY suggest it! It can get a little religious for some folks, but the message is straightforward, clear and it WORKS.
We really need to fireproof our marriage.
Last night things didn’t go well. Hot buttons were pushed…tempers ignited and our marriage caught fire. It was then that I remembered this movie and what it had to offer me and presented me with a challenge. I need to Fireproof my marriage so WHEN (not if) arguments like this happen again…we can withstand the flames.
So, I’m beginning a quest to Fireproof my marriage. Soon I will be posting from the Fireproof journal with both an explination and a call to action. I would invite you to join me on my journey – it should be an experience! Every marriage could use a little Fireproofing – right? :)
Here are some of the items that I’m going to use on my journey:
|Fireproof Your Marriage Couple’s Kit
I eventually am hoping my husband will
|Love Dare – Day by Day CD Collection
I’m really excited about this one. It’s
There is a Love Dare you can purchase to take you through the steps to fireproof your marriage which I am going to go over. 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. Each reading includes Scripture, a statement of principle, the day’s “dare,” and a journaling area and check box to chart progress. You can click the book at the top of the page if you need a copy. I will start this next week to give you time to get your journal if you need one.
