What are some ways to make this school year a successful one for your student? We want our children to grow not only in smarts but also in heart issues, such as character and compassion. Dr. Kathy Koch will join Ken and Deb to share practical ideas for parents as we kick off the new school year. Dr. Koch will also talk about the top character qualities to focus on and how to handle the ever consuming role of social media.
Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs joins Ken and Deb to give an update from the persecuted church. Todd will pass along some new information about a Chinese Pastor that was arrested last December. He’ll also share about a foreign Christian arrested under an anti-conversion law in Nepal. We’ll be discussing what these Christians are facing and ways that we can be praying for these persecuted believers.
Ken's morning devotional comes from Joseph Stowell's "Strength for the Journey: Day By Day With Jesus"
