I should first say thank you to all involved with both the movie & The Love Dare. My life has completely and forever been changed by them. Let me start by saying that my marriage was in no way bad, but it did have opportunity written all over it. After watching the movie, I bought The Love Dare for both my wife and me for our anniversary. We are now on day 35 and I have to say that it has opened both of our eyes. We communicate much better, we share more, we laugh more and any tension that was there beforehand is now completely gone! Our marriage is MUCH stronger & will continue to get even better. Amazing. Thank you so very much,

I teach a Religion class at a Catholic high school. I showed the FIREPROOF video in my Christian Vocations course. I have over 100 12th grade students. Young people today aren't exposed to movies like this. They were so receptive - many of the girls were weeping. Even a few of the football players told me they cried. I was overjoyed to see them cheering and getting excited about the movie. They were booing Dr. Keller and pulling for Caleb. What a positive role model for young people to watch in today's society. This story gives young people hope! stefaniePosted on February 08, 2010
I read the book, FIREPROOF, while my husband was away on a business trip. It truly brought to light the lack of affection that I had been showing toward him, in the midst of our busy lives. I believe now, however, that I am ready to take The Love Dare challenge in order to show him the love of our Heavenly Father and how He has shown me my own selfishness. I will be making it a priority, with God as my leader, to show him that I can be the wife that God intended him to have.benaPosted on February 07, 2010
I really enjoyed this movie. My dear friend encouraged me to watch the movie with my husband, with whom I just reunited. It was a blessing and very inspirational and encouraging to us.frankPosted on February 05, 2010
My wife rented the movie for us to watch. I agreed because it had to do with firefighters. When the movie was only 5 minutes in, I realized that I was like Caleb. Since then, I have turned my life over to God. I am a volunteer fireman and it gets tough. Going through tough times now.PolyPosted on February 05, 2010
The movies have all been a great blessing for my marriage and our friends. Thanks for blessing our lives and teaching us to live one day at a time. Many thanks.phil g.Posted on February 05, 2010
For the record, my wife and I have been committed Christians throughout our marriage. It has been a little over a year since we saw the FIREPROOF movie. I heard good things about the movie, so we went one evening. Imagine my surprise. I was shocked. I never expected the Holy Spirit to show up at the theater on a Friday night, but he did. Although there was a large number of people there, it was incredibly quiet and somewhat awkward as the story unfolded in front of my eyes. Several times I hung my head as tears flowed. Soon it became a deep heart wrenching sob from deep within. At one point my wife asked me if I was okay. I simply couldn't speak. There were no words. In the course of that movie, I realized I was so broken inside. I realized I was NOT the husband I wanted and needed to be for my wife. I was so full of myself and so empty and undone inside. It was very quiet at the end of the movie. Nobody hurried out. I remember taking my wife's hand and turning toward her. Looking deep into her eyes, I asked her to forgive me for being such a miserable failure as the spiritual leader in our home and family. Truly, the reality of this movie and convicting presence of the Holy Spirit altered my course that day. I am a better man today as a result of that encounter. Thanks for allowing me to share.

As a recently saved born again Christian, I have come to know Jesus as my personal savior. My life has totally turned around as I walk with God, except my marriage is falling apart. My wife is not taking the same walk with me and it has gotten to the stage where I have to give up God and my faith if I want to be with my wife. So we are not together just now. I pray to God everyday. It was my mentor from church who got me to watch this film. It blew me away and is so powerful and overwhelming. I'm willing to wait as long as it takes for the Lord to bring my wife back to me. I just know she is the love of my life and my trust is in God.EunicePosted on February 03, 2010
I am 32 years old and I am not yet married. I find it difficult to hold on to any relationship for any length of time. I had given up on ever finding true love. This movie has given me hope and shown me how to do it right if ever love does come my way. Timothy B.Posted on February 01, 2010
This movie really pulls at my heart strings! As a fire chief, it is hard not to get caught up in today's world and take out frustrations at home. Our pastor was doing a series called Fire Proofing Your Marriage. This is what stirred my soul down to the deepest, darkest area in my heart. I have learned so much in this experience and have grown in leaps and bounds. My faith in Christ is strong again. The Love Dare works. I would highly suggest this to anyone in dire straights in their failing marriage. God bless you as you try to save your relationship. Or even if you just want to shore up a present one. May God bless you and keep you in His love forever.
