Hour 1: Mike Haley: Raising Highly Capable Kids

The amount of students that have been put on the “academically at-risk” list has grown exponentially since the start of the pandemic. The stress for parents who juggle work and school simultaneously has left many feeling they lack the tools needed to help their children succeed with their school work. On Monday, we will visit with Mike Haley, Director of Raising Highly Capable Kids, who is excited to equip parents at this time with the 40 Developmental Assets that will help parents set their kids up for success. Be listening for some encouragement and inspiration concerning what really matters and how this season provides a unique opportunity for growth.


Hour 2: Ed Hedding: Pressing On to Higher Ground

Are you excited to press on to new heights in 2021 or are you wishing for days long gone? Pastor Ed Hedding is joining Ken and Deb Tuesday with marching orders for us as we begin a new year with the goal of becoming more and more Christ-like. Pastor Ed will lead the way with scripture Tuesday as he calls us to intentionality in our walk with Christ, encouraging us to take baby steps as we develop small sustainable daily habits to our lives in this new season.
