The Respect Dare: 40 Days to a Deeper Connection with God and Your Husband

Written along the same line of thinking as the "Love Dare" as made famous by the movie Fireproof, The Respect Dare challenges women to devote themselves to 40 days of intentionally respecting their husbands.  The author's hope is that after the 40 days are up, the challenge will become a lifestyle.

Designed for both personal or group study, each dare has a key verse, a devotion, a "bottom line" point and questions for self assessment and growth.  Some dares are easier than others, while some require a level of sacrifice that will challenge your journey to a stronger, deeper level of intimacy with your husband.

From the back of the book:

"A long and happy marriage." It sounds like the end of a fairy tale--an illusion that modern times have exposed.

And it is, if marriage depends on a constant stream of romantic emotion, or even on copious amounts of time or money. Thank the Lord, none of those are necessary. Two thousand years ago, Paul gave women the key to a successful marriage, and it can be summed up in two words: "unconditional respect." It's not popular. It doesn't sound fair. It can be hard to imagine.

But it works.

Nina Roesner has led countless women through this practical and life-changing journey, and in "The Respect Dare" she offers you the hope that so many others have found. Day by day, true stories and thought-provoking questions will help you apply biblical wisdom to the most important relationship in your life.

Give it forty days. Experience the intimacy God intended and discover what he can do in your heart and in your marriage when you choose to show respect his way.
