At work, inside burning buildings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the old firefighter’s adage: Never leave your partner behind. At home, in the cooling embers of his marriage, he lives by his own rules.
Growing up, Catherine Holt always dreamed of marrying a loving, brave firefighter…just like her daddy. Now, after seven years of marriage, Catherine wonders when she stopped being “good enough” for her husband.
Regular arguments over jobs, finances, housework, and outside interests have readied them both to move on to something with more sparks.
As the couple prepares to enter divorce proceedings, Caleb’s father challenges his son to commit to a 40-day experiment: “The Love Dare.” Wondering if it’s even worth the effort, Caleb agrees-for his father’s sake more than for his marriage. When Caleb discovers the book’s daily challenges are tied into his parents’ newfound faith, his already limited interest is further dampened.
While trying to stay true to his promise, Caleb becomes frustrated time and again. He finally asks his father, “How am I supposed to show love to somebody who constantly rejects me?”
When his father explains that this is the love Christ shows to us, Caleb makes a life-changing commitment to love God. Andwith God’s help, he begins to understand what it means to truly love his wife.
But is it too late to fireproof his marriage? His job is to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is ready to face his toughest job ever…rescuing his wife’s heart.
We are inviting all married couples this coming Sunday, February 15, 2009 at 6 P.M. for a free Valentine movie date. It will be held at Sumulong Baptist Church-Makati.
Jeff and I are thrilled to be able to open this opportunity for all married couples to further strengthen their marriages. A strong marriage is the foundation of a healthy and thriving family. We look forward to building a community of believers where we serve but more than that we love that as a church family, we continue to work towards what God has purposed for a family to be, to begin with. It was just timely that the Lord spoke to our hearts and gave us this movie in time for Valentine’s Day. You can learn more about the movie in FireProofMyMarriage.com.
Please know that whether you belong to a Christian community or otherwise, you and your family are welcome to join us this coming Sunday. Â We will be more than glad to see you there! 😀
