To be a separated or divorced Christian is to sometimes feel like an anomaly...a scandal. No one knows what box to put you in or what to do with you, and it can be isolating. PeggySue Wells and author Elisabeth Klein spend the hour with us offering their own insights from years when they felt their heart was Unraveling (Abingdon, ISBN# 978-1426770272). Listen as they soothe broken hearts with stories, action steps, and Scripture to help you navigate the waters of anger, faith, guilt, loneliness, and all that comes with separation and divorce.

Chances are, you learned the story of Noah and his Ark when you were in a children's Sunday school class. A fascinating story, certainly, but it is so much more. It's the story of a tragedy - in which God poured out judgment on the earth - and it really took place. Jesus said in Scripture that the final days of the planet would be As It Was in the Days of Noah (Harvest House, ISBN# 978-0-7369-6138-7), and Pastor Jeff Kinley joins us to examine clues of what is to come and equip believers to live wisely and redeem the time we have!
