For parents of adult children, the holidays can be a particularly tricky time to navigate. Maybe your kids live out of town and are finally returning home for Christmas — or maybe they can’t make it home at all. Celebrating with adult children looks far different than when they were young, and the dynamics can quickly turn sour when unspoken expectations aren’t met. On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, FOTF licensed counselor, Joannie DeBrito talks to parents about how they can approach the joys of the holidays with their growing children, while acknowledging that the season might not be the same as it used to be.
On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Greg Laurie joins us to talk about the movie, Jesus Revolution that was in theaters this past year. The movie is based on a true story taken from a book written by American author and pastor, Greg Laurie, about the Jesus movement in California during the 1970s.
On Monday's Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, writer and Bible teacher, Courtney Reissig joins us to show how she takes her Bible study students through five Old Testament covenants—promises—with the goal of seeing God’s beautiful storyline. Promises ground us. With every promise comes stability and beauty. Every kept vow gives courage and hope. As we dive into God’s precious promises to the people He loves, we’ll find our hearts strengthened and encouraged to face our days with greater love and courage.
