Popular culture has seduced Americans with the false promise that seeking happiness instead of God’s will should be life’s goal. The message is that if you’re not happy, then find a new religion, a new spouse, or even a new family. On today’s broadcast, Dr. Bill Bennett asserts that having a healthy marriage and family depends upon an unflinching commitment, especially when times are tough.
For Christian men to be spiritual leaders in their homes, they need to possess the fear of the Lord. That’s one of the fundamental messages shared by Ken Harrison, chairman of Promise Keepers men’s ministry. On today’s edition, Ken and co-host Dr. Tim Clinton candidly discuss the lure of pornography, along with finding true intimacy with your wife, and the necessity of praying together as a couple.
Through the unconditional love of a horse and God’s mercy, Kim Meeder’s hope was restored after tragically losing her parents when she was only nine years of age. On this part two edition, Kim describes how Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch pairs rescued horses with hurting kids to create healing where once there was only brokenness. She also relates an emotional story of how God used her to save a drowning man, and describes the spiritual application of sharing Christ with unbelievers before they perish.
At nine years of age, Kim Meeder tragically became an orphan in the blink of an eye. On today’s Family Talk, you’ll discover how she found indescribable solace in the presence of her horse and learned that God loves her unconditionally. As an adult, Kim felt led to replicate the Christian healing she experienced by founding Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Bend, Oregon, where she pairs rescued horses with broken children.
In part two of this informative discussion, Dr. Lile and Dr. Clinton discuss the life-long effects that abortion will have on a woman, equating it in compassionate terms to a miscarriage. They shed light on the damage, pain and psychological scars that this single decision can have on the unassuming person who is seeking to rid herself of a problem. Often times postpartum depression, shame, guilt, and in some cases, even suicide, can accompany this traumatic event in a woman’s life. But there is hope. Drs. Lile and Clinton discuss God’s healing grace and the promise of forgiveness that can cover even the most egregious sin. They close this interview by reminding listeners they are not alone. There are resources and understanding people ready to help a frightened girl or woman who is struggling with an unplanned pregnancy. The program concludes with a sorrowful acknowledgement of the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and a thank you to Dr. Dobson for staying in the fight and leading the stand for righteousness since the Supreme Court rendered its wicked decision to legalize abortion.
