Yesterday at Daybreak we started a message series called Fireproof Your Marriage. It is based on the movie Fireproof which I'm guessing most people haven't even heard of, let alone seen.  If you are married or even thinking about getting married at any point in time, I would highly suggest that you watch this movie (awesome story).  You might even want to check out the podcast, too!

Anyway, one of the things that Pastor Dave (as opposed to when he is just "friend Dave," heh) said is that men want to feel respected at home.  Janet joked that she ought to unleash some grasshoppers in our house so that I can capture and remove them from the house.  By doing that, I will continually earn her respect.

Fast forward to Sunday evening when we were watching the Fireproof movie (borrowed from Dave).  We paused the movie to get into our pajamas and microwave leftover pizza from dinner.  We both went up to the bedroom and discovered either a very large bee or a hornet (not sure which) hanging around the inside of our window.  At that moment I outright stated my fear of such insects.  Janet got a cup from the bathroom and a piece of cardboard and shooed the thing into the cup.  She promptly, and bravely I must say, took it outside and let it escape.

Janet has earned my respect.  And I am not worthy of her's.  :-P

We both LOVED the movie, and have now seen it a few times. We both cried several times during the first watching. We've recommended it to practically everyone we know, and have been working with the book, The Love Dare, as well.

I loved the twist at the end where it was his mom who did the love dare to his dad, but they knew he wouldn't listen, so they tricked him. LOVED that!

btw. Not trying to be a pest, but did you get my e-mail?

Love Dares
I am pretty sure that being da man does not require pest control but you can check with Dave on that. We have been working throught the Love Dare book this week and I covered two dares with the purchase of one bag of M&M's. I think I have discovered that the answer you any marital problem is M&M's.

Re: Love Dares
In my house, killing spiders and house centipedes is an absolute requirement of being "da man". Wasps and other bugs are negotiable.

Love Bug
Oh my - how I wished I would've been there to see Dan scream like a little girl. Running around his bedroom in his pajamas, screaming -- ahhh a bee! It's a giant stinger! Kill it Janet! Kill it!

It like your M&M's ideas, John. But what worked for me Sunday night was a 9pm call to Papa Johns. There's nothing like kissing a wife that has garlic butter breath!

Glad to hear you're enjoying and applying the Fireproof series!

Papa John's
Papa John's is definitely the way to my heart but does not always work for my wife. She likes it but does not need to order it if she sees a comercial. Me on the other hand......
