When you hear the word “father,” – do you think of someone who is loving…or angry? Someone who is pleased with you…or constantly disappointed? Someone who is always available…or someone who is too busy, preoccupied or distant? When you think of “Father God” – w hat images come to mind? Author John Bishop joins us for the hour to help you discover that God is not just like your dad. Instead, God is the Father revealed in Scripture, where truth is clear. God is the Father who is always there, up close and personal, in complete control and safe. Listen to his insights, designed to help you break free from the lies the enemy feeds of a God Distorted (Multnomah, ISBN# 978-1601424853).

Did you know that your beliefs affect your physical, mental, and spiritual health? When people understand God is good and loving, they flourish. But so many have distorted images of God that lead them into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. Psychiatrist Tim Jennings, author of The God-Shaped Brain (IVP, ISBN# 978-0-8308-3416-7), unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He also shows us how our brains can adapt, change, and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering.

During the second half of the show, we’ll take your questions for Mitch!

Mike and Donna Holcomb received the phone call no parent ever wants to get: their son had been killed in a hit-and-run accident, and the driver had been under the influence of alcohol. While they grieved the loss of their son, Mikey, Donna did what few mothers would dare to do. At the sentencing of her son's killer, she walked up to him in the courtroom and asked if she could have contact with him. What followed was an astounding story of grace, forgiveness, new hope, and second chances for the life of a convicted killer. Mike and Donna join us for the hour to explain how God's grace not only sustained them in their grief - but in their forgiveness.

Ryan Bomberger’s story begins in a way very different from most…his biological mother was raped but courageously chose to continue her pregnancy and give him life. Ryan was adopted and grew up in a loving, multi-racial Christian family of 15. Ryan defied the odds of being an “unwanted” child – finding love and fullness in his adopted family.
