Making better connections

This was great! my wife and I are able to listen to each devotion on our phone and then talk about it and what it means as we try to grow closer together. Spending time with my wife and God together has really strengthened our relationship. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Q & A for "The Love Dare Day by Day"

Updated: The initial review I published on Audible was edited, but the edited version didn't get published. This is the most recent update of my review.

Admittedly, reviewing "The Love Dare Day by Day" presents a few challenges, each of which will be addressed in the questions and answers provided below.

WHO IS THE TARGET AUDIENCE?

Married or Engaged couples with a Christian background will be right at home with "The Love Dare Day by Day." The Love Dare was made popular among evangelical churches across the country, and this devotional provides engaging, succinct devotionals for couples to listen to and practice on a regular basis. Those who do not come from a Christian background ought to know that there is a great amount of Biblical Scripture included.

WHAT DID YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT "The Love Dare Day by Day"? HOW WAS THE CONTENT?

As noted above, the content is on par with other devotionals that have been created for married couples. My wife and I regularly "coach" or mentor other couples, and our experience has led us to recognize which resources we have on hand will best compliment the couple we're working with. To be clear, "The Love Dare" and/or "The Love Dare Day by Day" are resources we would recommend to couples we work with on a regular basis.

HOW DOES THIS DEVOTIONAL STAND OUT AS AN AUDIOBOOK?

This devotional, in my opinion, would be much more accessible and easier to go through in paper or kindle form. I've been listening to the devotionals each day, and while I enjoy the content, it's just odd (at least for me) to listen to a 2-3 minute devotional and then follow through on the questions at the end of each daily reading. As such, I would recommend those who would like to go through this devotional to do so with a printed or kindle copy and also have a journal handy.

HOW WAS THE NARRATOR AND/OR THE RECORDING QUALITY?

The narrator for this devotional does a fine job. With each daily reading only being a few minutes in length, there's not much time to become really engaged or disengaged by his voice. His readings are on point, which is a plus.

However, the audio quality of this particular Audible book is not of the same quality as other recordings in my library. In full disclosure, I not only coach other couples, but I have also spent a lot of time as a stage musician, and over the past 20 years I've become accustomed to quality audio equipment. If I were to listen to "The Love Dare Day by Day" with standard iPhone earbuds, it would be OK. But I regularly listen to Audiobook and/or music through decent earbuds, and sometimes professional IEM's (in ear monitors). While using more refined audio equipment, there's a little bit of high pitch static on the recording that would make it hard for me to listen to on a regular basis.

But for the majority of users/listeners, this will not be noticeable.


ANY FINAL THOUGHTS? WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS RESOURCE TO OTHERS?

In full disclosure, I received a free copy of this book for a fair and honest review. While it pains me to leave negative marks regarding the audio quality, I believe I'm being fair to note the criticisms outlined above.

All in all, I WILL recommend this resource to some of the couples I meet with, but I'll be much more likely to encourage them to purchase the print edition as it will be easier to navigate, and will provide better opportunities to dwell on and journal through each of the daily readings.
