Summer may be the perfect time to start working on some “joy” habits in your home. These habits do not preclude sadness, but they equip children with the skills needed to work for and wait for what truly satisfies. Pastoral Counselor Chris Coursey will talk us through some of the four habits that will help you not only provide but support and guide your children toward a more joy-filled life.
Have you ever wrestled with God? Today’s guest has and shares his story in a new book, Blindsided. Mark Roser will recount what happened to his son Ethan while volunteering at a track and field meet at Wheaton College back in 2017 that ended up making international headlines. The tragedy sent Mark into a season of wrestling with God and now into the ministry of helping others who grapple with the ultimate question of “Why, God?”
