Fire Proof Your Marriage

Fire Proof Your Marriage With Fireproof the Movie and The Love Dare Book

Fire proof your marriage with Fire proof the movie. Fire proof is a Christian movie that takes a deep and personal look into a failing marriage. The goal of Fire proof the movie and its companion book The Love Dare is to save marriages from the brink of divorce and to keep healthy marriages from ever going down that destructive path. Fire proof and The Love Dare are so effective at saving marriages that many churches have started Fire proof your marriage seminars in which they show the movie and use The Love Dare as a daily devotional while supporting its principals with Bible study. Here you will find my review of Fire proof the movie and the book The Love Dare.

Fire Proof Your Marriage

Fire Proof the movie review.

The focus of the movie Fireproof is a crumbling marriage. Kirk Cameron stars in the film as a firefighter that is great at his job, but is failing in his role as a husband. He demands his wife show him the same respect at home that he earns at work and she tries to get him to see that while he may be a successful firefighter, he is a terrible husband and isn't deserving of her respect. They each want their feelings validated and so they go around and around in circles with the same fight. Hurt feelings and anger escalates each day until divorce seems their only answer.

Kirk's character is then introduced to the book The Love Dare by his father who explains how the book saved his marriage. He encourages Kirk to stick to the dares each day and complete the book before giving up on his marriage. Out of respect for his father, he agrees to give the book a try.

At first completing the dares feel awkward to him. He realizes how long it's been since he and his wife were even kind to one another, much less since one tried to romance the other. But after several days of sticking with the dares, he begins to feel good about his kind actions. His dad reminds him that love is sometimes a choice. To keep a marriage strong and to keep it loving, we have to decide to act like we are in love even when we don't feel it. This commitment to show love to our partners even when they don't return it will bring about great change in a marriage and in our partners, as illustrated in the movie Fireproof.

Fire Proof the Movie - Buy Fireproof on DVD

I found the movie Fireproof to be powerful from beginning to end and it left me with a strong sense of hope for the future. As a Christian, I found this movie to be as informative as it was entertaining. I strongly recommend sitting down and watching this movie with your spouse several times a year.

The Love Dare - How it Can Save Your Marriage

Fireproof your marriage and avoid divorce.

The reason why The Love Dare works is that it solves the biggest problem in every failed marriage...apathy. Just about every marital problem has apathy at its root. At some point in a marriage, the warm fuzzies wear off. Then we can either choose to work at our marriages, keeping them fun and alive or we can become apathetic towards our partners.

Typically we blame our schedules for our stale marriages. We are too busy with work, school, or the kids. We don't have time for date nights, back rubs, or even thank you notes. The truth is, you make time for what is important to you. What you invest your time in is what you are choosing to make a priority in your life. If you choose to ignore your marriage, it will wither and die.

The Love Dare helps reignite all of those feelings you both had when you first fell in love. There is no trick to The Love Dare. It is a step by step road map that guides you to a happier marriage. The reason the dares must be done daily is that the consistency shows your spouse that you are sincere in your efforts to improve the marriage and aren't simply trying to trick them into staying. If you backslide and skip a couple days, you may lose a bit of the trust you earned back from your partner and you may need to start back at day one again.

A healthy marriage takes time. If a gardener doesn't tend to his garden then it will become overgrown with weeds that will choke the life out of any of the good plants he had sewn. A marriage works in the same way. Neglect fosters "weeds" in our marriages.
