Seems like we haven’t really had much of a fall this year, which makes all the fall fanatics a bit sad! If you could add one month to any season of the year, so you could enjoy it longer, which season would you pick? And which of the four seasons do you love the most – and why? We’ll enjoy the seasons together and share fun stories, tweets and pins with you as well! Hope you can join us!

Divorce is not a good thing. Respected pastor, college president and author  Rubel Shelly says it over and over again in his book, Divorce and Remarriage (Leafwood, ISBN#978-0-89112-362-0). It disrupts the lives of people who got married with the full intention of living together until death separated them. It disrupts the lives of their children and those who love them. But what should we do when we find ourselves abused by our spouse? What about mental instability? Adultery? What should those who find themselves divorced plan to do about a future in marriage? Rubel Shelly addresses these difficult questions from a biblical perspective, in a way that pursues the heart of God and offers hope for those hurt from the devastation of divorce.

If your foundation is faulty, how will you stand? We live in a world where instead of allowing our emotions to enhance our lives, we have allowed them to control us. This has followed us into the church, resulting in a mass questioning of faith and the goodness of God when problems arise. Ron Luce joins us for Friday’s Mid-Morning to explain how the watered-down, feel-good ways of the Christian faith result in a shaky foundation. He also offers ideas for learning endurance of faith instead of just strength, and building confidence in God when you don’t understand his ways. Join us for an hour of learning to live life…Resilient (Charisma House, ISBN# 978-1-62136-971-4).

If you’ve ever been in a relationship, you’ve probably employed the art of negotiation at some point. The verbal maneuvering, often with a hint of manipulation involved, can at times be helpful, but Dr. David Hawkins does not believe it is the most advantageous tool to use.

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.

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).
