Not every school work problem can be solved with a tutor or additional study time. Sometimes the cause isn't even on your radar: your child's eyes. The issue isn't how well he sees, but rather a host of underlying vision problems you've probably never heard of. If the past school year was a struggle for your son or daughter, today's Mid-Morning with behavioral optometrist Dr. Carl Myers could be the answer to your child finally succeeding - and enjoying! - school.

God’s characteristics are many…He’s holy, eternal, our Redeemer and Restorer, faithful and just, merciful and compassionate…and the list goes on. We’ve learned He’s the God Who sees and provides, our righteousness, and God Almighty. But what does that mean for the believer? How does knowing these things affect our choices, thoughts, prayers, and feelings? During his June visit to Mid-Morning, Dr. Mitch Kruse unpacks how the theology of knowing these things about God can go one step further and change the way we live.

Powerful ministry is accomplished when men and women work together as sacred siblings. But how do we relate appropriately to the opposite sex in a work environment?

How should sacred siblings interact in personal conversations, staff meetings, and professional outings? In today’s encore Mid-MorningSue Edwards spends the hour with Lynne exploring these common and thorny issues.

Do you cringe when your kids fight in public because it makes you look bad? Do you secretly take credit for your child’s soccer win? Ted Cunningham says you might be in danger of “vanity parenting.” In Monday’s encore Mid-Morning, he explains what happens when our culture’s obsession with performance leads us to form expectations for our kids based on the world’s standards. He wants you to see instead how to create a home where your children find success in following their heavenly Father – and how to know the joy of seeing your children embrace their full potential, rather than being a Trophy Child (Cook, ISBN# 978-0-7814-0763-2).

Megan Spengler’s first novel, Operation Wrinklesteen (Tate, ISBN# 978-1-61862-944-9) introduces us to typical junior higher Abby…and her turbulent relationship with Mrs. Wrinklesteen. Sharon Garlough Brown’s Sensible Shoes (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-4305-3) follows the stories of four women as they are drawn into a spiritual formation journey at a retreat center. Love’s Journey Home (Harvest House, ISBN# 978.0.7369.5318.4) by Kelly Irvin returns readers to the Bliss Creek Amish series, and we round out the hour with Story of Stories (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-5816-3), where author Karen Lee-Thorp shows how the world’s greatest epic is not just one story, but a collection of many stories crafted together.

The people of Scripture teach us as much today as they taught their own peers. Moses never wanted to be a leader…Jonah ran away from his call, and when Marcia Moston’s husband came home with a call to foreign missions, she was sure God had the wrong number. His call conflicted with her own dreams, demanded credentials she didn’t have, and required courage she couldn’t seem to find.  Yet she answered the Call of a Coward (978-0-8499-4730-8) and found that she could, in fact, become courageous! Then Lynne digs into the devotional scrapbook, Couples of the Bible (978-0-310-33268-8), hearing from author Bobbie Wolgemuth about the encouragement and warnings provided by marriages from Bible times. She’ll explain how God guided couples in the past and continues to do the same in our world today!
