The Team Approach

October 31, 2018

Dennis and Barbara Rainey know that parenting is hard work. That's why they encourage parents not to try to parent alone, but to be in community with other parents. The Raineys were a part of a small group at church, where they gleaned wisdom from other parents and often found comfort with like-minded moms and dads. They also invited heroes of the faith into their home so their children could hear their stories.

Dennis and Barbara Rainey know a little about raising kids. They have six of their own and now have 20-plus grandkids. Today the Raineys remind us to carefully consider what kind of person they want their children to become and how they can cultivate those character qualities. The Raineys remember having differing values when they started their parenting journey, and tell how a weekend retreat gave them time to prioritize their top 10 so they could nourish those values in the lives of their children.

Dennis and Barbara Rainey, authors of "The Art of Parenting," talk about the character traits needed to be a good parent. The first thing moms and dads need is to be growing in their relationship with the Lord and their reliance on Him. Church attendance is great, but individual time in God's Word is vital. Children need to see mom and dad in love with Jesus.

Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife, Heather, talk honestly about the realities of deployment. Besides the obvious casualties of war, one casualty that is rarely spoken about is marriage. After completing seminary in 2006, Darren was commissioned in the Army and almost immediately deployed. Their experience of that first deployment is captured in the movie, "Indivisible," which releases October 18. Dr. David Evans, the producer of "Indivisible," and his wife, Esther, tell how they first heard about the Turners and what motivated them to turn their story into a movie.

Army Chaplain Darren Turner and his wife, Heather, join producer David Evans and his wife, Esther, to talk about the release of the new feature film about the Turner's life, "Indivisible." The Turners remember how they met and what it was that first drew them into the military. Darren's deployment challenged him in multiple ways, and raising the children alone came with its own set of problems for Heather. In the blur of service, Darren's faith grew stagnant and his heart grew numb as he watched more and more men die in battle.

Who are you listening to? Dennis Rainey explains that all of life is one long process of asking and answering the question, "Who am I going to believe?" In Genesis, we see Satan, the big deceiver, questioning Eve about what God had told her. Eve began to doubt God, and mankind has been struggling ever since. Rainey cautions listeners not to follow Eve's footsteps, but to believe what God has promised in His Word and to hold onto that truth for life.

"Boys play house. Men build them." Pastor and entrepreneur Joe Pellegrino tells how his life and legacy changed for the better after giving his heart to the Lord. Pellegrino agrees that sexual purity for young men is important, but a man also needs to be pure in character. It's only then that a man can find and pursue his purpose in life.

May 26, 1995 is a reset date for Joe Pellegrino, a men's pastor and founder of Legacy Minded Men. On that day at a Promise Keepers conference he committed himself to the Lord. Before he knew Christ, he was a man who built his house on the sand. He was cutting corners in order to build himself up. Now he shares what he's learned about following God's better blueprint.

Dr. Juli Slattery and Michelle Hill, "FamilyLife This Week" host, join Dennis Rainey in a lively discussion about sexuality. Slattery gives insight on how mothers should talk to their daughters about sex. Instead of just saying "don't go there," mothers can talk about a daughter's longings and help dispel fear while explaining God's good design for sexuality. Hill, who is single, explains how she is expressing her sexuality while still honoring God.

Christian counselor Juli Slattery teams up with "FamilyLife This Week" host Michelle Hill to talk about sexuality as it relates to singleness. Slattery explains there are many things that impact how a woman sees her sexuality, but one of the biggest factors is her family of origin. Slattery and Hill both share how the topic of sex was handled in their homes. While most Christian homes, and churches, endorse purity, pushing that message alone leads to problems. Hill, who is single, talks honestly about being single in a sex-crazed culture.
