Sex addictions affect more than nine million people, and the after-effects wreck marriages, destroy careers, and ruin self-worth. With today’s effortless availability to internet porn and chat rooms, the number of sex addicts is expected to climb at an alarming rate. Counselor and author Mark Laaser knows the addiction well. For 25 years he served as a pastor and counselor while secretly living with sexual addiction. Now, 25 years into recovery, he speaks to addicts and has developed programs to help them gain a fresh start in healing. On today’s encore Mid-Morning he explains the true healing that comes from journeying into a personal relationship with Christ.

We do not set out to become old. Far from it. We hardly intend even to become middle- aged. Instead we plan to live in some eternal now, which will lead on to something better, something more complete than what we had before…but sometime in our life journey, as a complete surprise, we notice it has become winter. The change occurred, seemingly, without warning. But it doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice a full life. Emilie Griffin, author of Souls in Full Sail (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-3548-5) and Kent Keener, Care Ministries pastor at Brookside church, join Lynne to talk about embracing the fullest life in the senior years.

Has “the church” become a barrier to faith? Is what our culture knows as “the church” even remotely close to Christ’s presence in the World? Does the “the church” give a distorted view of Jesus? Without abandoning love for the church or forgetting the biblical mandate for its presence in the world, Rubel Shelly explores a model for thinking of church in terms that are more personal and less institutional. During his conversation with Lynne, find out what he means when he says, I Knew Jesus Before He Was a Christian…And I Liked Him Better Then.(Leafwood, ISBN# 978-0-89112-271-5)

Who gets cancer? One out of two men and one out of three women. While it seems no respecter of age or region, it’s not as random as you think. Of the 571,950 cancer-related deaths in 2011, 1/3 could have been prevented if no one smoked. Another 1/3 could have been prevented with weight loss, exercise and healthier eating. And on today’s Mid-Morning, Dr. Ann Kulze and Kerri Zurbuch join Lynne to discuss the healthy living choices we can make now to help prevent cancer in the future. From diet to exercise to daily habits and more, you won’t want to miss this advice!
