Lisa Velthouse was a good Christian girl. She obeyed her parents, didn't drink, curse or smoke, and she even vowed to save her first kiss until she got engaged. {And she didn't just vow it. She wrote a book about it.} But after two decades of trying to earn God's okay, she found her faith was lonely, empty, and unsatisfying. She turned to the Christian-approved discipline of fasting to find answers, and instead, she found herself falling short and Craving Grace (Salt River, ISBN# 978-1-4143-3577-3). She'll share her story of a faith dramatically changed and how God used the sweetness of honey to break through stale religious practices and hollow goodness to reveal the stunning wonder of His grace.

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Youth pastor Shawn Harrison says the way teens struggling with homosexuality first encounter God – both personally and at church…including how Christians react to them – can determine their subsequent steps. It’s a delicate balance…not compromising the truth of God’s word, but also not withholding grace. On Friday’s encore Mid-Morning, Shawn and Clinton Faupel join Lynne to explain to parents, youth pastors, youth sponsors, and anyone else working with teens how to respond when a student comes out, and how to help the family through the journey. Learn how to minister and serve a group of people who genuinely seek deep authenticity in love, character, truth and presence.

What if every time you had a conversation, your best friend never got a word in edgewise? Your relationship would be less than fulfilling – for both of you! In the same way, a fulfilling prayer life is more than just regularly talking to God. And it’s more than checking items off a prayer list. God loves us so much that He wants us to draw close enough not only to talk – but also to listen. In Wednesday’s encore Mid-MorningLinda Evans Shepherd explains how to develop a dialogue with God, continually seeking Him and Experiencing God’s Presence (Revell, ISBN# 978-0-8007-2214-2).
