Deep in the heart of every believer, there is a faint whisper. A call. A prompting. We go about our business and we hear it. We see and interact with lost people each day, and the whisper echoes again: Share your faith. Tell them about Jesus. But fear, busyness, and lack of tools or motivation silence the whisper. Another day, another year, another life passes and we haven't told anyone about the best thing that ever happened to us -- the life-changing message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Modern-day messages of kindness and acceptance deceive us into thinking we never have to open our mouths and actually share the truth with others in love. Join us to learn how to be equipped and bold with the good news of salvation.
Our guest is a pediatrician and she has a message for dads: “Whether you know it or not if you're a dad, you’re a hero.” Even if you're struggling with all the demands of fatherhood, join us to learn that every man has it within him to be the hero father his children need. With simple step-by-step instructions and drawing on long experience—including her work with the NFL's Fatherhood Initiative—the good doctor will show you how to be the father you want to be and your children need you to be.
