We know that man was created in the image of God…but have you stopped to consider what our humanness means as we walk through this life in relationship with God? He gave us desires for significance, contentment, control and security, and He gave us the resources of time, talent and treasure, but what does that mean for our everyday life? How can we move past our sin and into the redemption and restoration He provided with Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross? Mitch Kruse spends the hour with Lynne unpacking anthropology – the study of man – and taking your questions!

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Why would our loving God choose to forever record the stories of men and women whose lives collapsed in sin and shame? Perhaps the Lord recognized that their stories could powerfully inform and shape us. Even failures of biblical proportion can provide wisdom for those of us walking the journey many years later. Gordon Dabbs, author of Epic Fail (Leafwood, ISBN# 978-0891122326), joins Lynne to explain that though we are human and destined to fail, with God's help and an openness to learn, we can resolve to fail forward - and be reminded that "because of the Lord's great love, we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail" (Lamentations 3:22).

How does a sociopath's brain differ from yours? Could slamming your head into the sidewalk when you fell off your bike as a kid be the reason behind your hair-trigger temper? With its 100 billion neurons - the same number of stars in our galaxy - the human brain does more than regulate body function. No one understands this better than Dr. Earl Henslin. The author of This Is Your Brain on Joy (Nelson, ISBN# 90785228738) explains the connection between brain trauma and behavior, explores how your body's health affects your brain's health - and vice versa - and answers your brain questions!

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.

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.
