Stepping Up

About a year ago, my husband, Chris, and I went to Family Life Studios in Little Rock, Arkansas, to do an interview with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine. We had a wonderful time! Wonderful, I tell you. While there, we participated in some videos for an upcoming book that Dennis was VERY excited about called Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Manhood. Here’s the book description:
In Dennis Rainey’s newest book, Stepping Up, he tackles head-on the call to living, breathing manhood, offering a simple yet powerful vision for what it means to be a man who truly conquers and wins. Perfect for men of all ages who aspire to an effective life. Stepping Up is written using biblical insights from truths learned in over 40 years of ministry with men. Included in the book are inspiring stories from both Dennis’ life and the lives of other courageous men. Insights include: Six nonnegotiables for training teenage young men; the temptation men face to step down; three qualities of men who finish well. Stepping Up offers a simple yet powerful vision for what it means to be the men God created them to be.
Friends, I don’t have to tell you that we need men to step up and lead their families spiritually. We do. While there are plenty who are doing it, there are plenty who are not. And who better to help us than Dennis Rainey who has spent his life pouring into his own family but also leading countless others to do the same. Dennis is a spiritual superhero to me and I have gained so much insight from him over the years. I only wish I had gotten to meet his lovely wife while we were there. Next time 🙂 There is also a DVD series and it would be an amazing thing to go through with a small group of men and their sons.

  1. Wow! Your story is still as powerful as the first day I heard it. I feel the gut wrenching pain you endured. Your story you and Chris when I first heard it I saw the freedom God had given you both and knew there was hope and freedom out there. I still believe in that everyday. Stepping Up sounds like an incredible ministry and your right men need to stand up and lead. I pray for this book and as always I continue to pray and lift up your ministry. People’s lives are changing. Addiction is huge in our culture for men and now women. We need Godly resources we need Godly people in our lives and we need God first. I can’t believe how many people have similar stories and have stayed and worked on their marriages because of your story of hope and redemption. It’s not easy but who said marriage was easy. I thank God for both you and Chris.
    Love you 🙂

  2. wow. I just cried as much watching this as the first time I heard your story. Thank you for being honest and real.
