Love Dare/Fireproof
Apr 8th, 2009 at 11:43pm
Print Post  
I just recently watched the movie Fireproof.  I remembered a few months ago this being out and I never made it to the theater.  I did enjoy the movie and following the frustrations of both characters really touched me.  It didn't hurt that they had music by "Casting Crowns" (Slow Fade - an excellant song).  Just prior to renting the movie I bought the book the "Love Dare". Feeling quite sure of myself and my relationship with my mate I felt this would be an easy task.  I have learned that some days I can complete the dare and others I fail miserably.  I am on day 9 - love makes good impressions....  It was simple greet your spouse with a smile and reflect your love to them.....I instead was over focused on what I "needed" to get done when I got home.  I yelled at the dog and my mates simple need to be greeted with love and enthusiasm was not top on the list.

So my question is - Has anyone else tried this? Roll Eyes

Generally, generalizations
are always false.

No, I have a friend that is doing it and tracking her progress on facebook.

It's funny (or not)...the movie played in theaters in the U.S.  The major cinema chain in Canada refused to air it (probably because it's "religious").  A local Christian radio station bought the rights to show it and played it in multiple churches.  Cost a lot of money but I think they may have made their money back because most or all of the showings were packed out.

Then it came out on video and the video stores couldn't keep it on the shelf...

I will have to look it up.  I have friends who are now curious to try.  I actually intend to buy the movie.
