Are you tired of fighting with your spouse? Do you have anger boiling inside of you that's coming between you and your spouse? Anger can destroy your marriage, but not if you put forgiveness into practice. Bestselling author Dr. Gary Smalley and his pastor and good friend, Ted Cunningham, suggest that you have three options when anger rears its head: stuff it, spew it, or study it. Join Char and Ted during Thursday's Mid-Morning as they reveal that the core of anger is pain and how sharing that pain can lead to deeper intimacy and a marriage that will go the distance. Learn how to build an unshakeable foundation of love, trust and confidence when you forgive. ("From Anger to Intimacy", Regal, ISBN# 978-0-8307-4676-7)
