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

Are you worried about your teenagers and how they’re going to survive the dating scene of this culture? A frighteningly high percentage of teens are sexually active before they leave high school – and the number draws higher still before college graduation. How can we reach this generation of teens with biblical answers to dating, sexting and hooking up? Youth pastor and national speaker Andy Braner (An Expose on Teen Sex and Dating: What’s Really Going On and How to Talk About It…NavPress, ISBN# 978-1615219230) and Remedy Live’s Clinton Faupel join Lynne to explain the current dating scene and teens’ thought processes on sex and dating. They’ll equip you with tools for building relationships with teens and offer advice on how to teach true intimacy, purity, redemption and integrity in dating.

Tuesday, October 15, 2013The Theology of Sin Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

After the first sin, Adam and Even commenced the world’s first self-restoration program. Filled with shame, they hid and blamed each other in their disobedience. Since that first sin, man has repeated this self-restoration pattern, determining for himself what is right and wrong. Mitch Kruse unpacks the Theology of Sin – urging you to look inside to see how you’ve missed the mark, twisted wrong into right and left good undone – and how to find forgiveness and redemption. During the second half of the show, we’ll take your questions for Mitch!

The author of Setting Boundaries for Women (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0736948197), Allison unpacks the importance of putting hedges around the stress-producers in your life.

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.

Now an advocate for life, Ryan shares his story across the nation and he’ll be with us on Mid-Morning not only to share that story, but also the story of God-given intrinsic value we all possess.

“Sex is a battlefield in today’s free-wheeling culture, and kids need their moms and dads to rescue them from becoming a statistic,” say Bill and Pam Farrel. The authors, speakers and parents of three grown sons urge parents to understand kids will ask questions about sex…but the real question remains who they will ask. In their new book, 10 Questions Kids Ask About Sex (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0-7369-4919-4), they offer biblically-based wisdom to encourage parents to infuse God’s truth about sex into their kids’ lives over a period of time. They’ll spend the hour with Lynne unpacking how parents can approach this topic confidently and biblically.

And just to clarify, we can’t actually give you that power. But we can love your idea along with you, so give us a call and tell us what holiday you think we should celebrate!
