Dads, would you like to make every day count with your child? On Thursday Ken and Deb visit with Danny Huerta from Focus on the Family who will share ideas on how to build a strong relationship with your children. Danny challenges Dads to take action in initiating conversation, writing notes, and finding creative ways to enter your child’s world. Don’t underestimate your value Dad; be listening for encouragement and challenge as you live out this vital role in your child’s life.
Recent statistics show that 35% of women experience emotional abuse in their marriage. How is the church doing in its response to women who are receiving constant criticism at home? Dr. Hawkins will challenge us to see this treatment for what it is, abuse, and to respond with a protocol for addressing this in the church. Be listening for ways that we, as the church, can be aware and respond to this abuse with wisdom and compassion.
Ken's morning devotional comes from "100 Days of Character: Strong Roots for a Strong Life" by Stephen Arterburn
