Wednesday, August 28, 2013"The Sacred Search" Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

What if you stopped looking for a “soul mate” and started looking for a “sole mate” – someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn’t about finding “the one”- but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn’t design relationships to make you happy, but to make you holy? On Wednesday’s encore Mid-Morning, respected author Gary Thomas talks with Lynne about a transforming way to look at romantic relationships. A good marriage isn’t something you find…it’s something you make through The Sacred Search (Cook, ISBN# 978-1-4347-0489-4).

In a world where there are 68 million searches for pornography every day, and where over 70% of Christian men report viewing porn in the last year, it’s no surprise that more and more men struggle with an addiction to this false fantasy. During Tuesday’s encore Mid-Morning, counselor and ministry leader Michael John Cusick joins Lynne to show how the pursuit of empty pleasure is really a search for our heart’s deepest desire – and the real key to resistance is discovering and embracing the joy we truly want. Backed by Scripture, personal and professional experience, he helps us understand how porn struggles begin, how to prevent them, and how to overcome the compulsion once it begins…and most of all…the joy of Surfing for God (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-0-8499-4723-0).

She doesn’t say the words as condemnation or a sermon. She doesn’t offer a ten-easy-steps guide to becoming a better Christian. No…Mary DeMuth is simply a fellow struggler who is learning that what we think about God matters, how we allow Him to reign in our hearts matters, and how we obey Him in the moment matters. It all matters. Everything (Thomas Nelson, ISBN# 978-1-4002-0398-7). And she spends our last live show in the month of August talking with Lynne about the process and nuances that shape us to be more like Christ.

Listen as Dr. David Hawkins explains why hurting people hurt people and how to eliminate this behavior in your life. And then Lynne and Dr. Hawkins examine the emotional life of the Christian.

Relationships are fragile. And whether fractured by a major incident or a minor irritation, the ensuing emotions can often feel insurmountable, and the relationship can be halted. In order to make things whole again, something more than “sorry” is needed. Jennifer Thomas joins Lynne to explain how to give and receive apologies. It’s more than a matter of will…but a matter of how you say “I’m sorry” that ultimately makes things right with those you love. She explains the wisdom she penned along with co-author Gary Chapman in their book When Sorry Isn’t Enough (Northfield, ISBN# 978-0-8024-0704-7).

Can sex be holy? Does God have an opinion about sex? Have you ever wished you had the answers to these – and other – questions that seem too much to ask? Authors Linda Dillow and Dr. Juli Slattery have teamed up to offer powerful, honest, biblical answers about sex. The truth is, God intended for husbands and wives to experience eye-popping pleasure and soul-to-soul intimacy, but issues of our past, damaging information from the world, and incomplete teaching within the church have hindered the full enjoyment of these holy gifts. Join these women in their candid discussion with Lynne about Passion Pursuit (Moody, ISBN# 978-0-8024-0639-2).
