She offers biblical truth, practical help, and comforting insights from women, like herself, who've walked in your shoes-and who've come to better trust God and more fully understand what to do (and what not to do) "When He Doesn't Believe" (WaterBrook, ISBN # 1-57856-434-4).

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.

Most of us live lives of "quiet desperation," as Henry David Thoreau put it, except we're no longer so quiet about it.

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.

Atheists may insist that their unbelief is the result of impartial reasoning and an unbiased look at the evidence. But what if these arguments are a smokescreen - an exercise in self-deception?
