    The book likes to compare itself to The Love Dare based on the Movie Fireproof Each day for 40 days Roesner gives her readers a bible verse, a story of a couple in her Daughters of Sarah class and then a dare for the reader to participate in She mentions the Daughters of Sarah classes often A quick web search shows perhaps one reason why tuition is 250 per person.http www.daughtersonline.org registThe author states in the early pages of the book that each of the vignettes are tru The book likes to compare itself to The Love Dare based on the Movie Fireproof Each day for 40 days Roesner gives her readers a bible verse, a story of a couple in her Daughters of Sarah class and then a dare for the reader to participate in She mentions the Daughters of Sarah classes often A quick web search shows perhaps one reason why tuition is 250 per person.http www.daughtersonline.org registThe author states in the early pages of the book that each of the vignettes are true, however they lack an air of authenticity Some of the situations praised are disturbing, others are downright dangerous Examples include the husband who refused to listen to his wife regarding his mother s help She respected him, allowed her mother in law to babysit, and the child ended up in the hospital requiring stitches because she was allowed access to a knife.Another was the story of a husband who constantly forgot to do his chores His wife decided out of respect she wouldn t nag, nor would she do the chore for him Instead she d allow God to teach him One chore included paying the electric bill Dick had to watch his children and wife shiver in the cold several times before he decided to take care of the bills promptly Kindle Locations 2154 2155 Seriously Allowing your heat to get cut off and one of the children was an infant is God approved family building behavior Towards the end, it seemed as if Roesner ran out of charming applicable stories, and just started filling the pages to get done Dare 36 A random and seemingly unrelated story about a woman undergoing fertility treatments miscarriage on her own Dare 37 Witnessing her father s death and comforting her mother I hated this book I only finished it because I felt as if doing otherwise would taint my ability to properly review it The writing style was poor, and the advise wasn t logical.Bottom line Check it out from the library IF you want the urge to hurl a book across the room.Disclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising

    I did not find this book to be well written or helpful There were some good points through the 40 dares, but many had little to do with respect It s like the author ran out of material for a full 40 days of dares and just squeezed some other good Christian principles in to fill space Some of the stories are silly and seem completely made up instead of accounts of real couples There s also a lot of pushing the author s Sisters of Sarah course group Skip this one.

    There were a lot of great points made in the book and it certainly gives a woman a lot to consider It s has had positive consequences in my marriage Some of the stories are a little hokey and corny and it tends to give the impression that your husband will change for the better if you do the steps, which may not happen Each day has a story with a happy ending which can be discouraging if you are not experiencing the same results from your husband.

    It was a neat thing to do to accompany lent in so much as it gave tangible areas for growth I personally felt that this book wasabout looking internally at oneself and finding areas for improvement than it was about being arespectful spouse Many of the stories seemed fabricated or overly simplified to fit into some sort of a mold, but overall it was a decent read.

    As women we are want to justify our thoughts, poor behavior, and inappropriate speech on account of a man s failings, refusal to meet our expectations, or our perceived inability of his capacity to be a man according to our interpretations and perceptions of what the term entails We exist in a media saturated cesspool continually extolling the imperfections of men at the expense of the supposed empowerment of women and we re the better for it Or are we Sometimes it s difficult to hear you re As women we are want to justify our thoughts, poor behavior, and inappropriate speech on account of a man s failings, refusal to meet our expectations, or our perceived inability of his capacity to be a man according to our interpretations and perceptions of what the term entails We exist in a media saturated cesspool continually extolling the imperfections of men at the expense of the supposed empowerment of women and we re the better for it Or are we Sometimes it s difficult to hear you re out of order Oftentimes it s easier to listen to consenting voices which won t challenge you to the greater standard we re called to embrace But God s glory isn t subject to cultural changes or social media soundbites He created man and woman in His image And to accord him a lessened status to malign him because of his differences or suggest that he is anything but the handiwork of the living God is a lie and a grave injustice to the sanctity of His creation If we re brutally honest with ourselves we d acknowledge the difficulties one endures when mandates to respect conflict with hurts, disappointments, and unfulfilled desires we ve encountered in our relationships However, in the same breath are we willing to admit it can be duly difficult for the other party to offer unconditional love in the face of our disgrace, disrespect, and seeming disregard for their person Would you willingly offer the same without protest The Respect Dare doesn t dispel the realities of the difficulty in doing so Nevertheless, it draws strength and support from the scripture and calls us to look beyond ourselves and our bruising Cease control, pressure, and endless advice that s rarely solicited In other words, stop behaving like he s one of the girls He s not Slow down, listen, and learn him Lean on the Lord and allow Him to demonstrate how excellence can be wrought in your relationship In the end the book will be most meaningful to those desiring to submit to God s agenda even when it juxtaposes their own Obedience is better than sacrifice That is the true juggernaut for relational success

    While I haven t worked through the book as intended, I read through most of it in order to give my review I am excited to use this book as a daily exercise as the author intended I am a huge fan of Eggerich s Love and Respect book, and we just finished a sunday school class study on it This is a nice extension for me of that series The author gives forty daily readings and challenges for thought on the topic of respect She recommends journaling the experience as well The book is for women While I haven t worked through the book as intended, I read through most of it in order to give my review I am excited to use this book as a daily exercise as the author intended I am a huge fan of Eggerich s Love and Respect book, and we just finished a sunday school class study on it This is a nice extension for me of that series The author gives forty daily readings and challenges for thought on the topic of respect She recommends journaling the experience as well The book is for women in thinking about their relationships with their husband This is not old fashioned submission, as in respecting ones husband the goal is not to become a doormat, rather to honor what God requests of us in terms of our spouse While the book does not give many concrete suggestions or dares , it isof a time for introspection as a wife as to how we think about, respond to, and respect our husbands I can see this being very helpful in my life, as I often find myself struggling with my attitude towards my husband and what is happening in our home And honestly, any marriage book discussing how to change one s husband as opposed to changing oneself is not worth the paper it s written on I recommend this book for anyone interested in continuing their study and efforts to respect their husband Though I would recommend first reading Love and Respect in order to gain a better understanding of the Love and Respect relationship in a marriage I received a copy of this ebook in exchange for my honest review After using it , i find that i don t love it as much as i thought it was ok, but so many of the stories seemed cutesy and perfect i found myself thinking, most husbands wouldn s say do that It was ok, and a good reminder of how our attitudes affect our marriages

    I preface these comments with the disclaimer that I DON T currently have a husband PWhile I have really enjoyed reading this book, I was a little disappointed with the format.I guess what I was hoping was that the book would give an idea of something different I could do each day that would be a blessing to my husband for that day and would, in turn, help us to develop a natural habit of respect between us as a result What the book actually does is give a different respect related principle I preface these comments with the disclaimer that I DON T currently have a husband PWhile I have really enjoyed reading this book, I was a little disappointed with the format.I guess what I was hoping was that the book would give an idea of something different I could do each day that would be a blessing to my husband for that day and would, in turn, help us to develop a natural habit of respect between us as a result What the book actually does is give a different respect related principle to keep in mind for each day which begins to be a little on the overload side after a few days with some specific suggestions here and there Don t get me wrong, its ALL helpful, but I don t find that the content of the book is conducive to a principle per day format I kinda get the feeling that Nina only used that format to sell books because its popular right now and I can understand that since the only reason I picked up this book was because I was hoping for a practical guide to 40 specific days of different specific ways to show respect to my husband And that s what I didn t quite receive from The Respect Dare
