Air Date October 31, 2014
Hour 1 – What Do You Think of Me? Why Do I Care?
Are you controlled by other people’s opinions? Peer pressure, shame, co-dependency and low self-esteem can create an insatiable hunger in our hearts. Dr. Edward Welch will share insight from Biblical truths for finding freedom as we learn to build genuine, loving relationships.
Hour 2 – The Color of Rain
It’s a real-life Brady Bunch kind of story! Two childhood friends died of cancer six weeks apart and God used the shared experience of loss to bring their grieving spouses together. Join us for a testimony of God’s grace and new beginnings with Michael and Gina Spehn.
