If you have had issues in your marriage that you don't think can be overcome, it can be! Divorce does not always need to be the first thing that a couple discuss when faced with a crisis in marriage. It should never be the first thing to consider. Surrending ourselves, our spouses, and our marriage should be number one! Counselling is one other way that a couple can use to face issues, but so can encouraging and challenging resources like The Love Dare and Fireproof, from brothers Alex and Stephen Kendrick.
The Love Dare Day by Day is a wonderful gem of a devotional that a couple can engage with, allowing the couple to draw closer and remember why they fell in love in the first place. It is a small book, making it very portable. Each week has a dare to do together (or individually if your spouse is not ready to use it yet). The book is very nicely organized and easy to read. It can be useful for both newlyweds or those of us married for many years. I also loved the resources included in the appendix, scripture and how to do devotions most effectively, be it individually or with your spouse.
The Love Dare Day by Day would be a fantastic wedding present, bridal shower gift or anniversary gift for any couple, and is not only necessary to use when you are in a marriage crisis but perfect to read BEFORE the crisis hits.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
