For several weeks now, the nightly news has been filled with stories about the gathering of troops on the Russian-Ukraine border and the possibility of an invasion. Since this is happening at such a distance from the U.S., many have questions. Why are Ukraine and Russia in conflict with one another, and why has this conflict escalated now? Why is the United States involved in this conflict between these two countries? On Tuesday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Dr. Robert Lloyd, Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at PBA joins us to talk about these questions and also discuss the impact on people's lives and livelihoods if a conflict like this would take place.
Valentine's Day can be painful--for anyone who has lost a love, for all who haven't yet found one. But we can quit allowing pain to define us, choosing to persistently move beyond merely "coping" with life's inevitable challenges to live as more than conquerors . . . through Him Who loved us (Romans 8:37, AMP). On Tuesday's Morning's with Eric and Brigitte, licensed professional counselor, Marti Wibbels tells us, "You are loved by the author of love Himself, and knowing you are loved will transform your life!"
