Over six million children live in grandparent-headed households in the United States today. An alarming amount of these households were created as the result of drug and alcohol addiction that left parents unable or unwilling to care for their children. While many grandparents are willing to take on the responsibility of parenting another generation, there are overwhelming components to consider: court proceedings, lawyer bills, hospital bills, not to mention the emotional needs of the hurting children. Martha Evans Sparks, author of Raising Your Children’s Children (Beacon Hill Press, ISBN# 978-0834125636), has fast, accurate answers to these complicated questions most grandparents wouldn’t have thought to ask. We’ll open the phone lines, email, and Facebook for your questions!

Do you ever lie to yourself? Sometimes the lies are obvious - like when you tell yourself something isn't a sin when you KNOW it is. Often the lies are subtle or have become so much a part of your self-talk that you don't even question their integrity...like when you say, "I'm not good enough." Sharon Jaynes, author of I'm Not Good Enough...and Other Lies Women Tell Themselves (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0736918701) says, "If you repeat a misbelief or lie enough times, you begin to believe it. It becomes your reality...even though it's a false reality." During today's encore Mid-Morning, Sharon Jaynes reveals the source of all lies, discusses common lies women believe, dismantles them with the truth of God's Word, and offers biblical steps for winning the battle for your mind.
