“Look who gained the freshman 15.” When Lee Blum heard those words, intended to be gentle teasing, her interior thoughts were, “You. Are. Fat.” She stood in front of the mirror in her room and inspected all the parts of her body that needed fixing…and her method of fixing was to immerse herself in an eating disorder and exercise addiction. But she found her voice again and in Monday’s encore Mid-Morning, she offers hope to other struggling at a Table in the Darkness (IVP, ISBN# 978-0830843084).

To invest in the life of a prisoner can be a risky thing...but if God called you to do it, would you? Brenda Spahn felt God urging her, after her own brush with life on the inside of the prison walls, to open a "whole-way" house and help women acclimate to life after serving a sentence. She joins us to tell her story of grace, God and gumption...the story of Miss Brenda and the Loveladies (WaterBrook, ISBN# 978-0-307-73217-0). And Kathy Sanders, author of Now You See Me (FaithWords, ISBN# 978-1-4555-2619-2), lost her two grandsons in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. After battling bitterness and suicidal temptations, the Lord urged her to forgive convicted bomber Terry Nichols...and not just to forgive him, but to friend him. She shares how she forgave the unforgivable.

It's believed that one in four women has experienced physical violence in an intimate relationship. No one is exempt...children, girlfriends, husbands, aging parents...the reports are climbing and astounding. But not all instances are reported. Verbal, emotional, spiritual and physical abuse is often hidden by victims acting out of shame and fear. Domestic abuse survivor Karen DeArmond Gardner opens the hour by sharing her story, and pastor Ron Clark, author of Freeing the Oppressed (Cascade, ISBN# 978-1-60608-4-7), joins us to explain how those among the clergy and church can help end the cycle of abuse. A partnership between the church and community can transform people caught in the oppression of abuse.

Fear. It is everywhere in your life. Fear of the future, kids, marriage, finances, health, relationships...you name it. But most of those fears are rooted in lies. Lies that tell us God doesn't care, can't or won't act on our behalf, or is holding out on us in some way. It feels safer to fear than to live trusting God. Brenda Garrison knows this firsthand and she offers God's Words of truth to us during this hour. You are known and loved by God and it is possible to live fully as the person God made you to be...brave in the face of fear.
