Everyone has been wounded...hurt...neglected by others. But as Anne Graham Lotz looks back on her life, the sad truth is that her most painful wounds were inflicted by religious people - God's people. People she had grown to love and trust. But people whose words and behavior were inconsistent with what they said they believed. Anne not only understands the wounded, but she also understands how easy it is for the wounded to become wounders themselves. In her conversation with Lynne, she breaks the silence of both the wounded and the wounders - in order to break the cycle of those who have been Wounded by God's People (Zondervan, ISBN# 978-0-310-26289-3).

For couples reconciling and restoring after an affair threatens to destroy their marriage, much healing needs to take place.

Counselor Dr. David Hawkins maps out the gut-wrenching path to finding the trouble that existed long before the affair began. And all relationships – from marriage, to friendships, to extended family – can benefit from resilience. Are you allowing others in your life the freedom to take risks, make mistakes and bounce back? Lynne and Dr. Hawkins talk more about this important relationship component and take your relationship questions on Monday’s Mid-Morning!

Recent studies show that 75% of Americans say they are fans of Jesus. The problem is…Jesus doesn’t want fans. He wants souls completely committed to following Him. And less than half of the “Jesus fans” would commit to being sold-out followers of Christ. Pastor Kyle Idleman’s thought-provoking book Not a Fan (Zondervan, ISBN# 978-0-310-33193-3) awakens apathetic Christians and motivates them to go on a journey of soul-searching to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple. Don’t miss Kyle’s encore conversation with Lynne and hear more about Jesus’ invitation…not to be a fan…but to be a follower.

What if you stopped looking for a “soul mate” and started looking for a “sole mate” – someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God?

What if God didn’t design relationships to make you happy, but to make you holy? On Wednesday’s encore Mid-Morning, respected author Gary Thomas talks with Lynne about a transforming way to look at romantic relationships. A good marriage isn’t something you find…it’s something you make through The Sacred Search (Cook, ISBN# 978-1-4347-0489-4).

In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day, and where over 70% of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. During Tuesday’s encore Mid-Morning, counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick joins Lynne to show how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire – and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want. Backed by Scripture, personal and professional experience, he helps us understand how porn struggles begin, how to prevent them, and how to overcome the compulsion once it begins…and most of all…the joy of Surfing for God (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-0-8499-4723-0).

She doesn’t say the words as condemnation or a sermon. She doesn’t offer a ten-easy-steps guide to becoming a better Christian. No…Mary DeMuth is simply a fellow struggler who is learning that what we think about God matters, how we allow Him to reign in our hearts matters, and how we obey Him in the moment matters. It all matters. Everything (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-1-4002-0398-7). And she spends our last live show in the month of August talking with Lynne about the process and nuances that shape us to be more like Christ.
