… 1 was “awful” and a 10 was “awesome.” From today’s FamilyLife Today interview (part 1 of 3) with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine:
Bob: Nina Roesner remembers a defining moment in her marriage.
Nina: We were sitting around at small group, one night, and we were talking about our marriages. We’d been studying marriage; and somebody came up with this bright idea to rate our marriages, on a scale of one to ten. My heart starts to pound; and I was just going, “I don’t want to do this!”
They came around the room, and they get to me. I said, “I’ll take a pass.” Of course, everybody was just really interested in my response, at that point. They pressed me for an answer; and I said, “I’m going to give it a two.” That was a really bad, bad number. Jim looked at me; and I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look as hurt as he did, at that moment.
Bob: This is FamilyLife Today for Monday, January 13th. Our host is the President of FamilyLife®, Dennis Rainey, and I’m Bob Lepine. We’ll hear from Nina Roesner how God got her attention, that night at small group, and what she did about it. Stay tuned.
We’re warming up to starting The Respect Dare, right here online with you, as you journey through the book. I was going to start this week, but then I realized that these brief interviews with FamilyLife Ministries are today, tomorrow and Wednesday. They provide a good foundation for our journey.
