Anyway, the issues have been around for many, many, many years and they're not going to disappear overnight, if ever. Although, I have to thank those of you who suggested we see the movie FIREPROOF. Fireproof is from the makers of Facing the Giants (another good movie). The movie was awesome!
At first, I said, "Well, I liked the movie and I can absolutely see how it could make a difference in a couple's marriage, but that's not the case here." Well, it's been a few weeks since we saw it and I've since changed my mind. I think it actually did make a difference in Joe. Little by little, I've seen some changes in him. Will they last? Is he really changing things now? And is it too late anyway? Only time will tell, but there's definitely something good working in him.
If you have a good marriage, watch it with your spouse. If you have a marriage that could use some work (I think that's most couples) WATCH THIS! Even, if like me, you're headed to divorce court, take a chance and watch the movie together. If it doesn't change the way you think, then what have you lost? Nothing. But you might be surprised. They've received literally thousands of letters from men saying they wanted to date their wives again. In fact, you can read many of them HERE.
Here's a trailer...
And HERE'S a page with extra resources for you to check out (like the Love Dare book featured in the movie.)
Fireproof comes out on DVD January 27th and you can preorder it HERE. I highly recommend it. (Oh yeah, make sure you have a LOT of tissues handy when you watch this movie.)
And just for my readers, I have 20 Fireproof DVDs to give away! Leave me a comment here and I'll choose 20 random winners on Friday, January 23rd. Please remember to check back in on the 23rd because winners will have 2 days to give me their shipping information. If I don't hear from the winners, I'll choose new ones.
