    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 inShe mentions the Daughters of Sarah classes often A uick web search shows perhaps one reason why – tuition is 250 per personhttpwwwdaughtersonlineorgregistThe 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 reuiring stitches because she was allowed access to a knifeAnother 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 behaviorTowards 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 treatmentsmiscarriage 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 logicalBottom line Check it out from the library IF you want the urge to hurl a book across the roomDisclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®com book review bloggers program I was not reuired 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 sueezed 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

    This book has been amazing in helping me grow my relationship with God and become a godly wife I would definitely recommend this book to any woman who is married or even engaged I love that the focus is getting your relationship with God right first There is a new edition coming out on December 10 2012 I can't wait to start a group and go through the book again

    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 formatI 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 uite receive from The Respect Dare

    I have read this book three times and it has really helped improve my marriage each time My attitude is positive my outlook is better and I love my husband and I definitely recommend this book to any married woman whether she's been married for a couple of weeks or forty years It will grow you closer to God and your family

    The Respect Dare isn't perfect in it's direction or message but I found it to be very helpful and filled with good advice and observations than not Each Dare chapter offers the author's insight a short story uestions and a personal Dare for you the reader to complete Each Dare is loaded with biblical reference which I love that gives credence to why the author is suggesting us wives to respond to our husbands in this way I found the biblical reference really helpful I would take the reading an extra step and go into my bible to investigate deeper into that reference It really is fascinating to read how some things just remain relevant no matter what times we live in I feel the need to explain a little about myself I started this book because my marriage can be tricky at times My husband is a great hardworking man that isn't big on talking about or being demonstrative in his feelings I on the other hand am very much into talking about and showing my feelings which has always left me feeling unfulfilled in my marriage I just didn't feel loved and often uestioned whether he really loved me or not because he didn't show it This book helped me so much One of the biggest things this book helped me to realize was that my husband shows his love in so many ways just not necessarily in the ways I expect him to The cool thing is the author doesn't just write that out Through the Dares it revealed itself which I think is so much better I'm really comfortable with my husband being the head of our household but there were a couple parts that I just couldn't allow to happen The author illustrates a story as to how she is not comfortable with her mother in law watching her little one because she is showing signs of being forgetful or less than engaged The husband says it'll be fine and the story pretty much says that even though in the end their child got hurt because he got a hold of a knife since the grandma didn't watch him closely enough that the wife was right by deferring to her husband even though she had true fear of their child being harmed This I couldn't do If I truly saw warning signs that my child would not be properly cared for I couldn't just drop my kid off and cross my fingers because my husband refused to see his mom's declining mental status I know God loves our children even than we do but we bear responsibility for our children and that does not mean putting them in a potentially dangerous situation I mean I trust God when it comes to my children without reserve but I wouldn't just let my kids play in traffic because I know God loves them and has them Plus when it comes to our parents it can be hard to admit they are getting old or slipping Their child shouldn't be in danger because her husband couldn't come to terms with that yet That and the chapter about how the husband let the power be turned off multiple times because he couldn't remember to pay the bills and it was the wife's job to not continually remind him were the only 2 parts in the whole book I took exception to I feel like a husband can run the household without being in charge of paying the bills if he chooses to have his wife do it especially when he's too busy or absent minded to remember to pay the darned things I don't agree that because he's the man he is the only one that can do this I know plenty of strong head of their household men that hand that responsibility to their wives because they are just too busy or have no interest in it I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that wants to strengthen their marriage Especially if you are willing to work on yourself to strengthen that marriage rather than focusing on how your husband could be better This book is great at directing us to focus on our own behaviors rather than that of others

    I thought so highly of this book as a bible study for you to do on your husband or partner I have reviewed what others have said regarding this book and wanted to offer my own insightIn my opinion I think some of the bad reviews kind of missed the whole point of the book You have to have an open mind and be willing to change This isn't a book on how to change your husband If that's what you're looking for you'll be surely disappointed Do you have to agree with everything she says Nope It's not written for just you It's written for many women who are very different I encourage you so much to find a bible study group to do this with I found one on Facebook that I didn't pay a dime forHere are a few things I personal disagreed with others on I don’t feel like the author is pushing her own agenda with the Daughters of Sarah Does she mention it a handful of times Yes But she also mentions other resources you can look up and use I think she mentions it for promotion of her online groups in case women want or need to take another step and get help Some have written how the stories don’t sound authentic I related uite a bit to the stories at times Sometimes I didn’t just because they didn’t hit home But the best thing I did was supplementing this bible study with a women’s online group I learned that what didn’t sound believable or hit home for me certainly did for other women I think sometimes we assume that just because we wouldn’t behave or talk a certain way means others wouldn’t either and that simply isn’t the case here in my opinion What the reviewers didn’t mention was how we are encouraged to write our own stories and send them in So these stories in the books could well be another woman’s experiences that some are trying to devalue how she felt or what she went through As for some of the “random” stories she input the other reviewers are correct Not all 40 days are about respect Sometimes it’s about figuring out why we are disrespecting our husbands It’s about changing ourselves from the inside out It’s about how we handle expectations for our husbands Are there a handful of personal experiences that are pretty extreme Yes But there are things in life that get pretty extreme This book is about trying to make your marriage work through thick and thin so yes there are some moments that the author included that were probably the worst part of others’ marriageslives that they had to work through These statements I’ve made aren’t to throw shade at another reader but just to offer anyone wanting to read this book some encouragement I’ve literally witnessed this book changing others’ lives I’ve watched women who were angry and upset with their husbands “mellow out” and change their perspectives Will this book cure every wrong thing in your relationship No probably not Will it make you confront some of your own bad habits and behavior YES nooo doubt And that’s uncomfortablebut worth it Will every dare hit home for you Nope there were a few that didn’t apply to me but that applied greatly to my friends But will it encourage you to be a better respectful well rounded wife That I think it willif you give 100% while doing it

    This book was a true game changer in my life I first purchased it online about 7 years ago and have come back to it over and over again whether it's been leading a small group or just individual reference The real life stories in the book resonated deeply with me and the dares stretched me and helped me to get to know and love God my husband and even myself better I saw real change in my heart and in my relationship with my husband I know that we are still married today because of the work God has done in us through the Respect Dare and related resources from Nina Roesner and Greater Impact

  9. Shannon Cunningham says:

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book It has been so helpful in my marriage but importantly in my walk with God I love how Ms Roesner empowers wives by focusing not on what they cannot change her husband's thoughts and words and actions but instead on our relationship with God and being the best wife we can possibly be in a way that was not demoralizing or demeaning I tried to be sure to follow the dares and get feedback from my hubby and he certainly agrees that I have grown tremendously and our relationship is stronger than ever

  10. Jessica says:

    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 conseuences 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
