Yes, because they've been so successful in marrying off their daughters, not!

WE ALL SAID they'd market the two weddings, and we were right!!! Great spotting, AthenaC :clap:

Now the whole world can learn "What to think about emotions" in the Botkin-approved way.

Edited to add: I'll bet A-S and E are grinding the enamel off their teeth.

Families across America are realizing that "dating" leads to brokenness, not dynamic marriages. Other families have realized that the "courtship" model is a maze of unexplored definitions, and find themselves taking wrong turn after wrong turn. Is courtship the answer? Is it always necessary? How do young people find each other and then discern the Lord's will for marriage? What does it mean to "marry well?" How do parents shepherd their children through the process? While the Bible doesn't offer a formula for getting to the altar, it has much to say about the maturity, vision, and love that make a marriage beautiful and powerful, from the very first day.

Scripture is rich with guidance for marrying well. Join Geoffrey Botkin and his wife Victoria, David Botkin and his wife Nadia, and Benjamin Botkin and his wife Audri for a five-part webinar series on courtship and preparation for marriage. Ben, Audri, David, & Nadia will share their stories, family photos, and lessons they’ve learned while seeking to answer the question, "Should I marry this person?"

Each session will provide opportunity for participating families to submit live questions and get live answers about gospel-centered families and gospel-centered marriages.

Some topics:

- Preparation for marriage starts early

- What the Bible says about courtship

- What about betrothal?

- Why strong brother-sister relationships are essential, in families and between families

- Dominion, discipleship, and life mission: Marry for the same reason you live your whole life

- Love like Jesus: Selflessly

- Risk management in relationships

- The deadly danger of worry

- What to think about emotions

- How do I know this is the right one?

- How to determine God's will

- The place of faith

- Maintaining peace and harmony between families

- When to skip courtship altogether

- Engagement periods

- Wisely reforming American wedding ceremonies

I always love when those who have been married a few weeks are giving relationship advice for a successful marriage. Especially those who have NEVER TOUCHED before marriage, because the really have the experience to tell us how its done.

I wonder if "When to skip courtship altogether" is code for "Let Daddy pick your spouse, and go into it unquestioningly and sight-unseen???"

I'm kind of curious how strong brother-sister relationships impact marriage, particularly marrying well.

I am not, however, curious what two newly-weds have to say about marrying well.

And there Anna Sofia and Elizabeth sit, their ovarian reserves diminishing BY THE DAY, waiting for the prince on the white horse to come in and sweep them away.....

:violin:

I wonder if the Botkinettes will get mentioned in the courtship series? Two women, well over marriageable age, sitting at home serving Daddy. Never courted, never engaged, never married. But I imagine Daddy RoBotkin will spin it as "send out your sons, but be more careful with your daughters!"

AMEN. I have been happily married for over 10 years (to someone I dated :o no less), and I don't need somebody that got married last week telling me how to do it, thanks.

I was thinking the same thing.

On a side note, I just figured out how to do double quotes! I feel smart. :clap: :lol:

There's been that nagging rumor that GBot and VBot had an arranged marriage.

Prediction: Permission to Impregnate will be bestowed by Daddy on obedient married sons, and obedient unmarried daughters will begin the next "season" of their lives as built-in babysitters.

There's that David Noor popping up again. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I'll be kind of surprised if one of the Botkinettes doesn't marry him in the next year or two.

Edited to fix a riffle I noticed.

I'm thinking that, too!

I'm wondering why he's part of this group. He's not married, is he?

Is he the one that DBot had to ask in order to court Nadia?

No, I'm pretty sure he's not married. I think he works for the Western Conservatory, so I think GBot is a mentor to him or something like that.

David Noor, future Botkin hubby?

He has kind of an Indiana Jones while he is being a nerdy professor thing going on (although he's no Harrison Ford).

Were we ever able to ascertain whether the recent Botkin-Noor marriage was legal (i.e., with marriage license, since Tennessee does not recognize common-law marriage)?

i'm kinda doubting that they got a state/official license. they certainly make no mention of it...they just signed the 'covenant' (that we know of), right?

Wow, way to pimp out your kids! Good grief.

I've been married for 8 months now, so that makes me an expert, right?

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
