I guess I’m not writing for this Challenge about books I’ve read but about books I loved. This one is one of them.
I loved the book but I also loved the movie. If you haven’t seen it, I really recommend you to see it, it’s such an amazing and warming movie, you have no idea.
I loved the story very much, I already told you that I’m a sucker for romantic books, but I don’t like any kind of romantic book, it has to be well written, and to have substance.
I remember when I watched the movie and they talked about the Love Dare, I found out that there is a Fireproof book and the Love Dare book but I could not find in my country.
I found the Love Dare book in pdf and I wrote the book, the ENTIRE book into a big notebook. I still have that. It wasn’t hard because I really like to write. I write everything I like, from quotes I find on the web, in books, songs, poetry, thoughts. 🙂
The book and the movie are about a couple who, after some years, feel that don’t love each other anymore.
They fight about everything and begin living like 2 strangers in the same house.
Both the movie and the book show us a comparison of how much God loves us.
Caleb talks with his parents about his marriage and that he thinks of getting a divorce.
His dad wants him to promise something, to try something for 1 month (I think it was one month). Caleb accepts the promise but he’s not happy about it.
His dad brings him the Love Dare book and he has to read it every day and also, to do what’s written on that particular day.
At first, he makes the dares almost forced and because his wife, Catherine, is not impressed at all.
But after days of doing the dare, her heart melts and his and they begin to understand their love and God’s.
They renew their vows but this time, in front of God.
“You putting on that ring while saying your vows. The saddest part about it is when most people promise for better or worse, they really only mean for the better.”
“Fireproof doesn’t mean the fire will never come. It means when the fire comes that you will be able to withstand it.”
“You never leave your partner! Especially in a fire!”
“Salt and pepper are completely different. Their makeup, their taste, and their color is different. But you always see them together. They give a more delicious taste to the cooked food.”
“You can’t just follow your heart. Your heart can be deceived. You have to lead your heart.”
“Fireproof doesn’t mean that a fire will never come… But that when it comes, you’ll be able to withstand it.”
