Proverbs 10:32 reads, “The lips of the righteous know what is fitting….” Chances are that during this Christmas season you will encounter people – family, friends, acquaintances and strangers – whose actions and words will test your patience and, let’s be honest here, your desire to respond like Jesus! Dr. Mitch Kruse defines words that are “fitting,” discusses the underlying heart condition that drives our words, and offers biblical advice – delivered with his trademark humor and empathy – for speaking like Jesus with difficult people and in trying situations.

Every year, we say we’re going to cut back, simplify, and have a family Christmas that focuses on Jesus. But every year, advertisements beckon, the children plead, and it’s easier to indulge our wants and whims. We overspend, overeat, get caught up in materialism and busyness and rob ourselves of peace and joy. We also rob Jesus of His rightful role as the center of our celebration. Mike Slaughter, author of A Different Kind of Christmas (Abingdon Press, ISBN# 978-1-4267-5360-2) and Christmas is Not Your Birthday (Abingdon Press, ISBN# 978-1-4267-2735-1) spends the hour with us, challenging us to approach Christmas differently – and end up transformed.

Why is it that family conflict seems to intensify at the holidays? Adult children are eager to begin their own traditions with their spouses and families - and parents and grandparents are left wringing their hands as they watch their own years of traditions slip away. Who should attend what gathering? When is it okay for kids to be left on their own to celebrate and when should the larger, extended family be included? Chuck Lynch returns to Mid-Morning to show parents how to relate to their adult children throughout the holidays - in warm and loving ways that foster even better relationships throughout the year.

Today's Christian women are tired. They battle exhaustion - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. They have too much work to do and far too many people depending on them. While they may treasure their roles, in trying to manage everything, they forfeit personal rest and refreshment time. Without meaning to, others urge women to work harder and accomplish more, leaving some women to believe they have no permission to rest. Denise George, author of A Woman's Right to Rest (Leafwood, ISBN# 978-09155-47-876), spends the hour with us to teach 14 distinctive types of rest as found in Scripture - that people in the Bible, including Jesus, demonstrated.
