Join Me for The Respect Dare starting July 1, 2013!


I’d like to encourage wives to get a copy of The Respect Dare by Nina Roesner (either the old version or the revised version) – and we will work through it together starting in July.:)

I did The Respect Dare myself about 3 years ago.  I LOVED having my quiet time with God during breakfast, reading His Word, praying, then reading the story and dare for each day.  It was so exciting to have a challenge/dare to do every day.  It was like opening a present each morning.  I was sad when the 40 days were over!

Find yourself a copy.  We will be talking about the dares together.

Much love to you!

    I did the Respect Dare as an e-course (online) and it was and continues to be a blessing to me and my marriage. It really does help you draw closer to the Lord, just as advertised. Thank you Nina and thank you April for helping women in their walk with Jesus

    Didn’t do so well the last time I started on this adventure. My book is on order, so maybe with a little more accountability, I’ll do it right this time. Thank you, Sister, for taking the time to walk through this with us!

    Count me in!

    Newly married, just started freelancing as a writer, and moved to my husband’s town a few weeks ago. A lot of changes, all of them good, but still a challenging time for me and thus also us.

    (The move is what I am struggling with the most (aside from accepting the two miscarriages I have had in the past six months), as I miss my previous home and feel out of place in this town. With all the other changes, like trying to find the courage to write, I sort of feel that I have had to shed my previous “identity” and form a new one. And I definitely want to base that firmly on God’s word.)

    After having read and applied some of the teaching on your blog and in Laura Doyle’s books, I have come to see this is definitely the way for both me and my husband to thrive.

    Thank you so much April! I feel blessed to have found these guides already now. I have much to learn and I make mistakes all the time – but hope to get better. Thankfully, my husband is very supportive and has accepted this as a process.

    So definitely in! I just hope my book reaches Finland in time.

      I pray that God might give you great comfort and His supernatural peace as you grieve the miscarriages you have suffered.😦 I am so sorry to hear what a difficult 6 months it has been!

      But I am very excited about what God has in store for you! I can’t wait to see all that He has planned.:)

      It is wonderful to hear from you!! I am so glad your husband has patience and grace for you in this process. That will make the whole thing much easier!

        Thank you April. You truly are a blessing:)

        I have in fact come to a sort of peace about the miscarriages. I believe that what is, is best for now. Just because it is. And that we cause ourselves the most pain when we fight what is with thoughts like should’ve, could’ve etc. I think I originally read the “what is, is” phrase from a Brandon Bays book (or maybe Byron Katie) and it stuck with me.

        It just was not my time to bring a new life to this world yet. But maybe what happened was a sign that I am able to get pregnant. And that is good. I just have to let it happen in its own time.

        And I cannot wait to see God’s plan either! I just have to remember to actually let God do His work and trust. Sometimes I struggle. Ok, quite often in my head still:) Thinking I have to solve everything. But then I remember what my friend recently said to me: “Perhaps the most profoundly wise thing a person can say is: ‘I don’t know’.” After remembering this, a calm floods over me. I don’t know. And I don’t have to. God does. What a relief:)

        Have a wonderful week! And thanks again.

          What a beautiful, trusting, faith-filled, God-honoring attitude!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!

          Thank you for sharing – I know that your story will bless many other women.

          It is much easier to learn respect and submission when you have a great guy. It definitely sounds like you do!:)

        I forgot to say that yes, my husband is wonderful. Which makes me all the more inclined to learn biblical submission and to learn swiftly. (And it also makes it harder to look at the pain I sometimes cause him with my disrespect.) But yes, I am lucky that I have such a great man beside me:)

    We are going to have an amazing time! Please be in prayer for yourself and for each of the other ladies. Let’s ask God to show us our sin, to convict us of anything that offends Him, and to remove our worldly ideas and replace them with His truth. Let’s ask Him to make us the godly wives He desires us to be!:) I can’t wait!

    I am looking forward to this. I’ve had Nina’s book on my Nook for a while, but having you and these other wives to share the journey with is a great encouragement. Thanks April!
