If Mama Ain’t Happy…

“If mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy…”

Familiar saying?

Unfortunately, it was that way at our house, too.


Today’s interview with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine talk through some of these things…dare you to listen in, and see what God will do! I know He totally overhauled my heart and my relationships in my family as a result of walking me through a study on biblical submission and respect.

From today’s broadcast:


Now, if what your wife keeps saying to you is: “You cannot win this game with me. There’s no way you can win. Even if you do really good—guess what? I’ll find the mistake in what you did.” A guy just goes: “I’m not playing that game. I will go sit on the sofa and watch ESPN rather than engage in that kind of game.”


Right. We can create an environment where our husbands will keep trying, and feel engaged, or we can create an environment where they give up. We can make that happen just in the way that we communicate.

We’re gearing 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.

Glad you are here – hope you’ll join us in the journey by subscribing to the blog. We’ll start digging into the dares next week, but for now, we are laying the ground work, preparing our hearts. Next week I’ll start blogging a dare or two a week, so if you are doing 3-5 a week, we should be good. There’s no “keeping up” that matters, from what I’ve found. 🙂

Let us know what you think about the interview, and feel free to invite friends to journey with us.

Love to you,
