Fireproof My Marriage – The Love Dare Challenge

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
do this dare with me. This contains a 6
session DVD set and 2 workbooks. Until
I can get him to do it, I’ll do it by myself.

Love Dare – Day by Day CD Collection

I’m really excited about this one. It’s
still in the pre-order stages so I’ll have
to wait for it to come out. This is going
in my car to listen to when I drive to
work.

 

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.

  1. This is a good post, I stumbled across your article while looking for some random stuff. Thanks for sharing, I’ll be sure to return regularly.

  2. My wife and i have gone through series of challenges in recent years in our marriage, it got so bad that i contemplated separation (not divorce). i felt that the separation could help restore sanity in our marriage but i was also aware that it could swing to the other side. My parents had issues in their marriage probably worse than my wife and I have been through yet they stuck together. Here was I helping people to mend their marriages yet nursing the thought of bailing out of mine! This thought had lingered for about one year and it was at the point of fruition before i stumbled into this movie ‘fireproof my marriage’. The worse part of this is the fact that i am a Pastor and i conduct marriage seminars teaching others how to solve their challenges and live happily together but so overwhelmed with my marital challenges to the point of giving up!

    I stumbled on the the movie on a cable network while i was in my office at about 2pm on June 18, 2010. i had missed a better part of it but somehow i was able to follow through. i broke down and sobbed a number of times before the end of the movie and at the end i made a commitment to love my wife unconditional no matter what. God used a simple movie to heal me and rekindle my love for my wife, its so amazing! God bless everyone who was involved in the production, may God preserve your homes as well.

  3. I have been struggling in my marriage and the fact that my husband isnt on the same path as me. recently we were faced with some major changes in our life and marriage and it has divided us. i had seen the movie before but when i seen that it was showing again i decided to watch it with my husband. it touched both of us tremendolusly. i am so thankful for god’s love and i hope that he will continue to bless me with patience until my husband finds his way. I loved this movie!

  4. Tracy, what a beautiful testimony to the power of this movie! I am so thankful that you both found such worth out of watching this and I’m praying for both of you! Many blessings!

  5. i watched the movie and i watc hit ova and over agian,,tho im not yet married the movie has been a blessing to me and i pray God helps me in this scared commitment called marriage

  6. I believe that there is a season for everything. I heard of this movies way before I actually watched it. At the time it did not interest me. I started having some rough times within my marriage. I had come to the conclusion that I wanted a divorce at the beginning of this year. A friend gave me a movie called courageous and the previews of Fire Proof My Marriage was on the dvd. I went and got it and started to watch it. M husband called at the beginning of the movie and asked me what was I doing. I said watching Fire Proof and he said wait to watch it. He wanted to watch it as well. I said are you sure? He said yes. I waited until he got home. Now I’m telling myself “yes this movie is going to tell him something”. Well we watched the movie and I was truly inspired that after the movie and the family went to bed I asked God please show me me. Now I know be careful about what you ask God for. As days went on God showed me myself and I was stunned. He showed me that I was not the good wife that I thought I was. He began to work on me. It hurt me like hell to see myself that way that after he was one I found myself apologizing to my husband. I learned that God is holding you accountable for your actions and what you do. Not what the other person is doing. I thank God for this movie it not only helped my marriage but me as a women of God. God bless the people who made this movie. It has truly opened up my eyes.
