Based on Mark Gungor's wildly popular seminar, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage® builds on Gungor's success with tens of thousands of couples who credit him with enriching, and even saving, their marriages. By using his unique blend of humor and tell-it-like-it-is honesty, he helps couples get along and have fun doing it. Through exploring a variety of subjects including the myth of a "soul mate," the different ways men and women think, the conflicting levels of libido, and the necessity to forgive, Gungor proves that the key to marital bliss is not romance or destiny -- it's work and skill. Couples need to work hard at maintaining their relationship and to have the skills to pull it off. The longer spouses wait to learn these skills, the greater their chance of wanting to bail, yet Gungor makes it easy for couples to bring their relationship to the next level.

There's also a video series you can use with your small group here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/respectdaresmallgroup Grab hold of an exciting training method with easy to understand instructions - then take your small group of women through the best selling book, "The Respect Dare" and supplement the experience with exercises, activities and discussion that will leave an impact for generations to come. Utilize proven training methods to help facilitate growth for your participants. Walk confidently beside the wives in your group as they grow closer to God and their husbands as a result of their journey through "The Respect Dare." Recognize that this is radically different than any other small group guide available today. This is so much more than a typical small group guide - it is a professional trainer's manual, with the content made simple for lay people to understand and implement without investing thousands of dollars to become trained in this method of growth facilitation. You can expect your group of women to connect quickly, deeply, and grow significantly, if you utilize the methods suggested in "The Respect Dare - A Small Group Leader's Guide." What Christian Leaders Have to Say about "The Respect Dare:" Dr. Kevin Leman, best-selling author of "Have a New Husband by Friday:" "Nina's insightful steps in The Respect Dare help you along the path to a better marriage. Walk along this successful path traveled by many women to find growth and fulfillment. Take the first step, I dare you." Shaunti Feldhahn, best-selling author of "For Women Only: What you Need to Know about The Inner Lives of Men:" "Believe it or not, most men need respect so much that, if they had to, they would give up love to get it - and respect empowers them to be the caring man you most need. One of the most important things you can ever do for your man - and thus for yourself -- is to read this book. From the first page you are an active participant as you go through daily scripture, self-reflection, prayer journaling and lots of 'now I get it!' examples. Think Nike slogan "Just Do It:" each day you find yourself DOING respect - not just thinking, praying, talking or reading about it - but DOING it. You will find your habits seamlessly changing into new ways of relating that will feel as wonderful and life-changing to you as to him." Pastor Mark Gungor, best-selling author of, "Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage:" "Women need to affirm, encourage and respect their husbands with their actions and words-and sometimes it is with the lack of words that is most powerful, if you catch my drift! Respect can be shown both by what you say and often times by what you don't say. Many times when I speak of this to women, they launch into 20 questions: What does respect mean? What does it look like? How do I show it? What if he doesn't deserve it? The list goes on and on. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, or no recipe or steps to follow, understand that the whole concept of respect has more to do with you than it has to do with him. I encourage all women to accept this respect challenge and find out if I'm right. What do you have to lose except a whole lot of selfishness, bitterness and unrealistic expectations? On the other hand, you have a great opportunity to gain greater understanding, self-confidence, joy and a better relationship with God and your husband. Go ahead, I dare you. You won't regret it."

Ephesians 5:33 reads, "However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband." And research done by Shaunti Feldhahn in 2006 demonstrates that "respect" is one of the most critical needs a man has in a relationship. Have you ever wondered, "How can I possibly respect my husband?" Or, "Isn't there MORE to being married?" There is more. We can help you become stronger, figure out the respect thing (it's not what you think) and become more connected to God and your husband. More than half of marriages end in divorce in the United States, and many women that stay married are unhappy. The Respect Dare can change all that. It is forty days of an experience that will take away the mystery that is keeping you from speaking the language of respect with your husband. It provides real life examples from women who have developed closer relationships with God and their husbands. In it, you will learn: - How to build confidence; - Methods to positively handle conflicts; - Keys to better communication; - How to develop a more intimate connection with your spouse; - Ways to deepen your relationship with God; - And much more! Learn the language of respect and truly connect to the man you married with The Respect Dare. "Doing the dares" with a small group of women has excellent benefits, providing accountability, encouragement, and discussion.

Can I Give My Husband Back

‘I laughed and laughed my way through this book from start to finish!!... I found it so funny that I rolled from one laugh straight to into another one for most of the book!... I loved this book so much I finished it in a day – I think that tells you everything you need to know!! Fab, fab, fab!!’ Stardust Book Reviews, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ It’s normal to prefer getting a filling at the dentist to spending time with your husband, right? I thought I was sorted on the life front. I was a heart surgeon with a loving partner and two gorgeous little girls. Except my husband’s version of ‘loving’ is lying, cheating and sleeping his way around London. Which means I definitely deserve a refund. Unfortunately, moving on isn’t that simple. Just because I know how to operate on a heart doesn’t mean I know how to fix my broken one. Plus, I lost the receipt for him years ago so I’m definitely getting short changed. But now I’m single, am I ready to mingle? There are a few minor issues: 1) The last time I went on a date double denim was in fashion and my eyebrows were horrendously overplucked. 2) Men wear stupidly skinny jeans now. 3) I don’t know how to use dating apps but at least I don’t have to get changed out of my pyjamas. 4) Sometimes the most promising thing you have in common with a guy is a shared love of prawns. 5) I don’t know whether to open a date with ‘hi’ or ‘hello’ or ‘hey’ and once I ended up saying ‘howdy’. Everything happens for a reason, they say. There’s plenty more fish in the sea. But what happens when everything falls apart and you haven’t got a clue how to go fishing? An absolutely hilarious and utterly relatable tale for anyone who has ever survived a nightmare relationship, felt a little lonely or nursed a broken heart with wine and carbs. This feel-good novel will get you back on your feet and genuinely laughing out loud. Perfect for fans of Why Mummy Drinks, Sophie Ranald and Sophie Kinsella. Readers absolutely love Can I Give My Husband Back?: ‘The BEST book I have read for a long time! A book has never made me laugh like this one... Made me laugh until I couldn’t breathe, I had tears rolling down my face and I had to force myself to put it down for a bit to recover. This book has it all: it’s laugh-until-you-risk-passing-out funny, it made me cry, the characters are highly relatable and I loved every second of it… If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ‘A side-splittingly hilarious romp that had me wiping away tears I was laughing so much… It’s just as well that I was in lockdown and I couldn’t read this book anywhere in public because I was laughing so hard, I would have surely embarrassed myself… Wickedly funny, deliciously witty and a joy from start to finish.’ Bookish Jottings, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘OMG… LOVED IT!!!… Just pure LOL all the way through… A MUST-READ for when you could do with a laugh!’ The Book Girls, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Oh my goodness… Made me laugh so much my sides hurt… Definitely the pick-me-up and anxiety-buster I needed.’ Little Miss Book Lover 87, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Brilliant… It’s not often that a proclaimed “laugh out loud” book makes me do so, yet laugh out loud I did.’ NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Had me chuckling out loud and I think I almost actually jumped off my chair at one point.’ This Hannah’s Life ‘Had me in stiches.’ B for Bookreviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Jam packed with so so many laugh out loud moments, honestly I just couldn’t stop laughing. Also I found this very easy to read and it only took me 2 days to read, it was that good I just flew through it!’ Jessica Book Biz, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘An unputdownable, hilarious and over-the-top read that entertained me for a whole day non-stop… Really got me laughing out loud.’ Roving Book Worm ‘Fantastic… My belly hurts from laughing.’ NetGalley Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Hilarious!... I loved every second of this book.’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I absolutely loved this book! It reminds me of Bridget Jones but better if that's possible.’ The Book Club Africa, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I laughed and laughed my way through this book from start to finish!!… I’ve never found a character that I’ve found so funny as what Lucy is!!… I rolled from one laugh straight to into another one!… An absolute belter of a book!!! I loved this book so much I finished it in a day – I think that tells you everything you need to know!! Fab, fab, fab!!’ Stardust Book Reviews, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘I finished it in a mere few hours because I didn’t want to put it down… I haven’t laughed this much while reading a book in a long time!… My only regret is that I devoured it so quickly… This is the perfect book to settle down and relax with on a particularly stressful day. (Or any day really! No matter how you’re feeling, this book is wonderful and you need to read it OK? OK).’ Reading in Autumn ‘Hilarious, laugh-a-minute read! Had me chuckling aloud as I read, much to the consternation of my husband! Frank, funny and full of relatable family dynamics!… A real laugh-out-loud read of a book that I devoured in a day!’ Goodreads Reviewer, ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
