In this episode of the DadPOD, I interview Bob Lepine. Bob is the Co-Host (with Dennis Rainey) of FamilyLife Today, a radio program that’s been on the air for more than 20 years and airs on hundreds of stations around the country. Bob is also an executive leader at FamilyLife, has served on the board of the National Religious Broadcasters for a number of years, pastors a growing church in Little Rock, has written a book called the Christian Husband, is married and has 5 adult children, scattered around the country.
Listen to Chase talk about how growing up in a blended family was all based on the influence of his stepfather. His stepfather, Larry, had a key influence on the development of Chases’ faith, his maturing and helping Chase to take the baton into his upcoming marriage and life as a young leader, man and soon to be husband.

A majority of men are easily influenced or create images in their minds that immediately stimulate an internal reaction. Women usually need more than image. They […]
I like action movies. Just like most men, I can sit through a “chick-flick” out of love for my bride and enjoy the movie once in a while. But I don’t watch them alone. Yet, whenever I scan the channel guide and see titles like, “Die Hard”, “Gladiator” or “Braveheart”, I’ll often take a peak […]
Really liked Dennis Rainey’s devotion today from Moments With You devotional.
