We have every reason in the world to worry. Every reason except one: we are encouraged, even commanded, not to worry by the God of the universe. Amy Simpson returns to Mid-Morning to help us rightly divide appropriate fear and clinical anxiety from the worry that God would have us leave behind. She points us to Scriptures that invite us to greater trust, and practices that help us live in confidence, rather than Anxious (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-4314-5). Whatever keeps us up at night, the God who made us and loves us watches over us and offers rest for our souls.

When 31% of pregnancies end in loss, it's no surprise that miscarriage, stillbirth, and infant loss bring great grief. For the women who become pregnant after loss, the complexity of emotions triggered by a pregnancy is rarely addressed. Teske Drake joins us for the hour to challenge these women to claim joy in the midst of grief. Centered on biblical promises, Teske focuses on the peace God offers -and pulls from her own experience in walking this road. If you or someone you know awaits a little one after a painful loss, join us to learn more about Expecting with Hope (Kregel, ISBN# 978-0-8254-4337-4).

We’re taught to focus on others over ourselves, and having a servant’s heart is certainly Christlike way to live! But too many people forget to extend the same kind of grace and kindness toward themselves that they’re careful to offer those around them. Being good to yourself...whether in the form of a day off with no errands and all rest, a few stolen minutes with your journal to capture the thoughts of your heart, or a much-needed lunch conversation with a good friend…can make all the difference in your heart and outlook! What do you do to treat yourself with a little extra kindness? We want to hear!

We all desire more than just the endurance of our daily routines. But often we feel limited and stuck, as if we’re merely existing instead of living. That’s not the way it was meant to be. God intends the humanity in each of us to be deeply experienced, lavishly enjoyed, and exuberantly celebrated. In fact, this is what the gospel is all about. Matt Heard invites us on a journey of discovery – to see how Christ yearns to restore humanity to what God originally intended. Spend the hour with us as we learn how to live Life with a Capital L (Multnomah, ISBN# 978-1-60142-446-4).

Whether or not we mean to do it, most of live behind a mask…or a pile of them. The people we are in our hearts and homes can look very different from the people we are at church, or on Facebook and Instagram. What if we chose to live differently? What if we chose to be vulnerable and honest and messy and needy…daring to expose our blemishes, imperfections and insecurities? What if we took off our masks…all of them? Michelle Watson returns to Mid-Morning to explain how God invites us to take our masks and leave them at the foot of His cross and to receive in exchange the crown symbolizing our identity as a child of the Most High God.
