33457 Marriages Have Been Ignited By FIREPROOF

I saw FIREPROOF for the first time 2 days after learning my husband had been cheating on me. It was so hard to sit through, but we did, as well as continued constant counseling that we had started earlier. We were separated and through the movie and The Love Dare, my husband not only continued counseling, he read as many books as he could, did many seminars, etc., just to stop lying and have the relationship he knew he wanted with me and our kids. It took 1 day for him to cut off all ties with the others as well as set up a computer account that sent me an email with all his websites visited daily. Now at 13.5 months, I can say things have been amazing and right for the first time in our marriage. We celebrated the one year mark where we were forced to start over and face God. After we saw the movie, many of our non-Christian friends who were separated or close to divorce also saw it and were restored. I still find myself referring to it all the time. Thank you so much!KaylaPosted on January 02, 2010
I have seen two of the movies you have put out and have been extremely touched by both. FIREPROOF, however, hit me harder than Facing the Giants due to the fact that I was divorced nearly three years ago. I am left to raise a daughter alone. I firmly believe that had this movie been around when my ex-husband and I were having problems that it would have saved us. He is now remarried. I pray every day that your movie ministry will touch hearts and save families from the pain that I went through. My divorce was definitely the most traumatizing event in my life, both emotionally and spiritually. I felt as though I was betraying my God. I pray that the lord continues to bless you each and every day. I believe the movie Courageous you are about to begin working on is just what this country needs right now. Ever since my divorce, my ex-husband has not been the best father to our daughter. I pray this movie will speak to him in ways that I cannot. My best wishes on you and your endeavors and God bless you all each and everyday. You are true warriors for Christ!AndrysPosted on January 02, 2010
God bless you a lot. This movie is really great. I think the director needs to continue making movies like this. God bless again to all the people who worked on this project.SarahPosted on January 01, 2010
I had been in several relationships before, but nothing this serious and long lasting. This past May, he purchased FIREPROOF and did this whole romantic night with the movie. He didn't want to admit it, but I saw him tear up. Back in August, I told him I didn't love him and it just seemed so frustrating to be in the relationship with him. It broke not just his heart to hear it, but also my heart just saying it. I knew deep down it really wasn't true. So that night, he got me to agree to watch the movie again. It definitely has saved our relationship. We are also now planning a wedding, the wedding I thought I'd never be able to plan because I figured I couldn't last that long in a relationship. But God has shown us how to love and treasure each other. It's a long, hard battle to love someone, but it's easier when you have someone as strong as God to pull you both through the hard times. God bless and good luck to those who are trying The Love Dare. (P.S. I bought the book and I use it as a reference whenever I forget my focus.)Jamie J.Posted on December 30, 2009
My husband and I have been married for 9 months. Back in October, I asked for a divorce. I told him that I didn't love him. I was trying to find a way to make him mad at me. A week before our divorce was final, I told him that I didn't want to lose him and that I really did love him. I heard about this movie through a good family friend. I went straight out and tried to find the movie, but was only able to find The Love Dare, which I bought and read. Then I found the movie and watched it. I am so thankful to have finally found God and let Him into my life and soul. I realized that I was not only lying to my husband, but also to myself about everything. Now I am on a road that is bumpy and rocky. My husband still wants the divorce, but I am not giving up. I believe that with God in my life, He will show me the way and let me do the right thing to fix what I have done. But I love my husband with all my heart and I hope that one day he will trust and love me again.deanPosted on December 29, 2009
I am humbled by reading the many challenges other men are faced with as I am on day eleven of The Love Dare. God has continued to give me strength each day as I go on this journey and I want everyone who reads this to know I lift you up in prayer and ask God to give you daily encouragement. Remember that God created marriage and loves each one of us unconditionally and our gift back to God is to do the same. Today I choose to love unconditionally so that at the end of my day I can say I did my best for Him. May God bless each of you courageous enough to Dare to Love!BrentPosted on December 28, 2009
My wife and I have only been married for a little over 2 weeks. We have already started having problems and a few days ago she came to me and told me she wanted to get our marriage annulled. It completely broke my heart and I totally broke down. I have been praying and asking God to give me the strength and tools that I need to be the husband that I need to be. I talked to my wife and told her I want to do The Love Dare with her. I just purchased the movie today and we are planning on watching it together tonight. She has already seen it and loves it. Just from us talking about it and our plans to do The Love Dare, we have already seen an improvement in our marriage. I just ask God to bless us and our marriage and to give us the strength and patience to complete the 40 day challenge. With His help, our marriage will be saved and we will spend the rest of our lives together living for God! JulioPosted on December 26, 2009
I am 38 and have been married to my wife for 15 years. I just got out of prison, where I found God. I was away for 4 years and when I came home, my wife told me that she did not love me anymore. It was the hardest news I have ever heard. I learned that she had had a relationship while I was gone and broke it off 6 months before I came home. We watched the movie together and I believe that the book may help us. I hope to win her love again and ask for everyone's prayers. We have 2 kids and she doesn't want them to know we are having problems, but she says she can't see herself with me again.Eric B.Posted on December 26, 2009
I'm 22 years old and am currently deployed to Iraq. About 6 weeks ago, my wife told me she didn't love me, didn't miss me and was glad I was gone. She was happy to be independent. Last week I found out that she was spending a lot of time with a guy and wanted to be more than friends with him. I'm on day 3 of The Love Dare. It's hard to overcome all that she has done to me. I have to have faith and learn to forgive as God has forgiven me. It's just hard to imagine a life without her and our little girl who is due April 2nd. I love her and I want this marriage to last until I leave this earth for my real home. MJPosted on December 25, 2009
A month ago, I came face to face with how far I had gone away from God and utterly destroyed the partner God had given me. For years, I had been a "good" person by many standards, but not a God person and not honoring my walk with Christ and commitment I had made to my wife. I saw FIREPROOF and its message came back to my remembrance. While I may never have the opportunity to marry the woman I prayed for, FIREPROOF has taught me that love is an action and a daily decision I must make. Thanks for the movie.
