I can't tell you how many times recently I have felt God intervening in our lives. I am usually not the one who pays attention to stuff like that either. I don't know if I have been ignoring it, or I have just really needed it lately. This movie was definitely a spiritual intervention for us. After we went home we looked up the website (www.fireproofyourmarriage.com) to find that there is a whole study and books that go along with the movie. It was amazing to see that a portion of this website was devoted to firefighters' and 'first-responders' marriages. They had some pretty shocking statistics about firefighters and marriage. Like how the divorce rate among them has gotten to almost 75%!!
Needless to say, we ordered the study and books and I can't wait to get them. Both Matt and I are adamant about putting each other first and, as they put it on the website "never leaving your partner behind".
