Join us for a very full hour of radio. We start with some of the stories making headlines and then pivot to a conversation on how we can pray specifically for those serving in the entertainment industry. We then lengthen our prayer lists by hearing powerful stories of the global church and how they stay faithful in the face of adversity.
How do we help our children deal with everyday challenges and anxieties? Asserting that our desire to overprotect our children from adversity can harm them in the long run, our special guest will offer a healthier approach including compassionate listening, truth-telling, and rejecting a "victim mentality." Help your child to get up after being knocked down.
