Jill Savage says being a mother is not for those who display symptoms of the "Perfection Infection." In fact, she encourages women to embrace the No More Perfect Moms (Moody, ISBN# 978-0-8024-0637-8) mentality and learn how God's grace covers the real but imperfect life. She'll open our parenting show with her insights on learning to love your real life, and then Kathi Lipp shares some of her 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0736929677). This straightforward, workable plan gives you new avenues to do more than just check on your kids. And we wrap up the hour with Lisa T. Bergren, author of Upside Down Prayers for Parents (WaterBrook, ISBN# 978-0-307-95583-8), which reframes your thinking away from only prayers of protection into prayers for whatever graces they need to live well for God in the midst of struggle.

Mother's Day was created to be a day of celebration...honoring the mothers who gave us life. But along the way, it's become a day of great pain for many women: those who long to be mothers and still wait for that dream to come true...those who have said goodbye to babies...those who have kissed their mothers goodbye...those who have strained relationships with their mothers. Catherine Hickem helps us open this special show by addressing the hurts that often get overlooked on this day, and then we spend the rest of the hour chatting with you. Share a tribute with us...to your mother...to someone who became a mother to you in the absence of your own. Join us as we turn a tender heart toward mothers!

On what foundation do you make every choice, capture every thought, process every feeling, or offer every prayer? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus painted the picture of a foundation upon which His disciples could build their hearts and lives. He closed the greatest speech ever given with a comparison of two builders – one wise, one foolish; two foundations – one solid, one shifting; and two fates – one eternal, one temporary. On Tuesday’s Mid-MorningMitch Kruse challenges you to go wisely as you build your own foundation.
