Respect Dare Pt. 1

If you have read the blog for a while now, you have heard me mention the phenomenon of "respecting your husband."  My husband and I participated in a Love & Respect event at church.  About a year later, we watched the entire teaching on Love & Respect.  This really taught us a lot about each other when it came to communication in marriage.


So, when I had the opportunity to score an advanced copy of the book "The Respect Dare," I jumped at the chance!  Because honestly, I find this whole respect thing just fascinating.  I know we, as wives, are called to respect our husbands (Ephesians 5:33), but I am still blown away by how big this issue is for a man. Is it just me?

We watched Fireproof as a family.  That's the movie where Kirk Cameron completed "The Love Dare" and transformed his marriage. Nina Roesner has written a similar dare book for those wives out there who, like me, may need some nudging, prompting, and even direction when it comes to respecting their husbands.  

Right now, I am prayerfully completing a dare a day.  I plan to share with you snippets of my journey.    Stay tuned!  Wanna join in?  The Respect Dare will be released on December 11, 2012.  :: Click Here :: and RSVP for the Online Release Party.

    Oh sweet friend, what a joy to see your commitment to respecting your husband. Both "Love and Respect" and "Fireproof" has really changed the lens in which I view marriage. I can't wait to hear how this journey goes-and will be excited to catch this release!!

  2. I am going to be reading the Love and Respect book this semester for my marriage and family counseling class. I am very excited about reading it! I also loved the movie Fireproof and my husband and I did The Love Dare ( I was actually planning on mentioning it this week in my week long testimony, ha) and loved it as well. Now I cant wait to try this other dare :) Thanks for sharing!!
    Have a blessed day!

  3. Respecting our husband's can be a relationship-changer, can't it, Falen?! I'm not the best at keeping this in mind, but I totally agree with the premise and love the "Love and Respect" book. I'll have to keep an eye to your blog, to see how you are doing with the dare project too. :)

    1. It really is. Knowing that respect is such a critical part of the male makeup is fascinating to me. When we watched the Love & Respect DVDs, it really opened both our eyes to a different way of communicating with each other - For the Better. Thanks for stopping by, Beth!!

    1. Soooo amazing. I love that it is blatantly written out in the Bible, too. God told us so all along. Ha. You'll have to let me know your thoughts about Love & Respect when you finish, Lauren. I could talk about it for hours! HAHHA.

  8. I'll be following along with your series. Respect has come up a lot in the conversations between my husband and I. Now I'm wondering if I downplayed it too much.

    Thank you for sharing this with Motivation Monday!

  9. OH what a wonderful idea!! I try daily to respect my husband. I love him so deeply and am so thankful for him...it's hard for me to realize sometimes that he's made differently than me. He thinks and reacts differently. I pray for the wisdom and ability to understand and respect him more each day!! Thanks for this post!! Have a blessed day :)
