All of us need to be able to have a healthy confrontational conversation at one time or another. Sometimes it's a matter of simply saying no so we don't get overextended. At other times, we may need to confront a difficult person in a relationship-a controller, a manipulator, or an irresponsible person. Dr. John Townsend, author of "How to Have That Difficult Conversation You've Been Avoiding" (Zondervan, ISBN # 0-310-26714-0), explains how to have a helpful and effective confrontation with another person. Use these how-tos to cultivate more love, understanding, and respect between you and others

Most of us live lives of "quiet desperation," as Henry David Thoreau put it, except we're no longer so quiet about it. When exactly did "all stress, all the time" replace the "green pastures and still waters"? And what can we do about it? Dr. Richard Swenson, bestselling author of "Margin" (NavPress, ISBN# 978-1576836828), reveals the dangers of living in a post-balance world and gives us hope for recovering a foundational sense of equilibrium in his new book, "In Search of Balance" (NavPress, ISBN# 978-1600066986).

Distractions are plentiful when you're behind the wheel, but few are proving to be more deadly than texting while driving.

A panel of guests, who have seen many tragedies first hand as a result of driving while texting, join Char during Friday's "Mid-Morning" to help us understand the severe consequences of picking up our phones when we're behind the wheel.
