Love Dare - Day 1 - Patience

Dear readers,

After receiving so many e-mails and counseling many people with marital problems, I’ve decided to do something different.
Are you facing problems in your marriage?

Would you like your relationship with your husband to be ten times better?

The relationship is not that bad, but could be much better?

So let’s start our love dare!

Well the movie fireproof really inspired me and for the next 40 days you will receive here in this space, little tasks for you to practice.

I want to warn you that it will not be easy but the final result will be worth the effort.

Like I’ve mentioned before, after my salvation, my marriage is what I hold most valuable in my life.
I hope each and every one of you can experience and value such a treasure.

It doesn’t really matter if your husband is converted or not!
This dare is indicated for all those that wish to see a transformation in their relationship.

Remember, you will receive the task today and will need to put it into practice immediately!

Don’t take this for granted!

Day 1: Patience

Day 1 of our Love Dare may be easy to some, but for others this may prove to be a true challenge…

“Tomorrow you will demonstrate patience towards your husband. Make a conscious effort not to say anything negative to him. If the temptation arises, choose to say nothing at all. It is better to hold your tongue then to say something that you will regret later.”
(Based on the book The Love Dare)

Did something make you feel bitter towards your partner?

Were you tempted to say negative words?

How was your day?

Leave your comments... It can be made anonymously, no one will know who you are!

If you have a Bible, it would be great if you read and reflected on James chapter 1.


  1. Would it be right if I could do the Love Dare? I mean I am not with anyone or married but am teen with parents, would that be alright if I just practiced with them and with all the people I know?

    Thank You, God Bless You!!!

  11. Hi Mrs. Fernanda
    The day was a bit difficult, I choose to stay with him the whole day to see if I can cope to hold my self and stick to my decision but I did it at the end he was even trying to make me angry I manage to be patient and this is for me to do it always.

  12. The first day was not that hard but i almost complained about something that he asked me and i remembered that i had to be patient and did what he asked me without complaing and it was a lovely day for him and for me.

  13. Hi Mrs. Fernanda

    What I learned in my marriage is that men sometimes are just like children. I used to be angry so much in my first year of marriage but now I don’t get angry any more because men are obviously like that and now I don’t find it difficult to handle any situation that I come close to.

  14. Thanks, Mrs fernanda for this word I will put in pratice.

  15. Hi Mrs Fernanda Good Evening,

    It was a peaceful day and i tried to make him happier without complaining.
    Nothing happened, everything was under control.

  18. This is brilliant...I watched the movie and now I get to follow the Love Dares! I was looking for some good advice. It is my first month wedding anniversary today and I want to make sure I am starting off on a good note!

  19. It was a nice day but i almost say something to him but thanks God i hold my tongue.


  20. i started my love dare from day one and i have to confess, it was a bit difficult because when you make a decision to do something to bless your marriage or any part of your life, the devil always brings things in order to make you to fail, but i made it.

  21. Hi Mrs Nanda, after that testimony you posted on your blog (in portuguese), I decided to do the love dare too. 39 days to go.
