If you have a son, it’s because God has uniquely chosen you to love him, encourage him, mold his character, and prepare him for godly manhood. And the key to a great mother-son relationship isn’t figuring out the right parenting techniques, but letting God work through your life to influence your son. Rhonda Stoppe spends the hour with us explaining practical ways you can get to know your son’s heart better, enjoy meaningful conversation, parent and discipline without regret, and realize that no one can influence your son quite like you. Tune in to be inspired by Moms Raising Sons to Be Men (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0-7369-4977-4).

Rod Dreher was a Philadelphia journalist when his younger sister, who still lived in their home town {population 1700}, was diagnosed with cancer. Moved by the way his once-home community rallied around her and struck by the grace and courage with which she dealt with the disease, Rod began to wonder whether the ordinary life Ruthie led in the little country town was in fact a path of hidden grandeur. He shares The Little Way of Ruthie Leming (Grand Central, ISBN# 978-1455521913) with Lynne. Then at 10:30, New York Times best-selling author Eric Blehm takes you deep into SEAL Team SIX – the counterterrorism unit that took down Bin Laden – through the story of one of the group’s most legendary operators, Adam Brown – a young man you lived and died, Fearless (WaterBrook, ISBN # 978-0-307-73069-5).

God’s characteristics are many…He’s holy, eternal, our Redeemer and Restorer, faithful and just, merciful and compassionate…and the list goes on.

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.

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).

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!
