Following Jesus in a New Babylon

How Are Screens Influencing Us?

Authors David Kinnaman and Mark Matlock talk about the challenges youth face spiritually as they navigate all the opposing views and opinions of the spiritual Babylon we're living in. Kinnaman, who has been with Barna Research Group for 25 years, explains that the gap between Christians and non-Christians is growing, and our youth face a large chasm from which to interpret their faith. With the constant drizzle of news and information, they are feeling more anxiety and fear. Together Kinnaman and Matlock explain how parents can help their children use technology wisely.

How Are Screens Influencing Us?

Love Is Tenacious and Committed

Dave and Ann Wilson interview Bob Lepine about the qualities of biblical love from 1 Corinthians 13. Love is more than a feeling, and there really is a kind of love that "never fails." But how can a spouse bear and endure all things when things feel unbearable? How can a person believe all things when his/her spouse is deceitful? And how can we avoid enabling wrong behavior, including physical and emotional abuse, as we pursue a marriage that goes the distance?

Love Is Tenacious and Committed

Love Is Virtuous and Honest

Bob Lepine along with hosts Dave and Ann Wilson continue their discussion of agape love found in 1 Corinthians 13, a passage that reveals the most common cracks found in marriage relationships. What exactly does it mean to "rejoice in the truth," and why is it so vital to a relationship? What do you do if your spouse isn't interested in pursuing a virtuous and honest relationship? And how should you approach your spouse with areas where you've been deceitful in the past?

Love Is Virtuous and Honest

Love Is Humble

Favorite love songs can capture the heart and stick in the mind for decades. But they don't usually capture God's definition of real love. FamilyLife Today hosts Dave and Ann Wilson sit down with Bob Lepine to discuss 1 Corinthians 13:4 on why humility is such a key feature of biblical love. The kind of love that forms the foundation of a Christ-centered marriage. A love that is so counter-cultural, the early church actually invented a new word for it. Learn how to get a PhD in this kind of love and turn away from your default setting as a human being - self-centeredness.

Love Is Humble

The Joy of Being a Grandparent

There are magical, special feelings that come with being a grandparent. The fun of learning what your grandchildren will call you (papa, mimi, "G-daddy"). Inviting your grandkids for sleepovers. Reading books slowly and not skipping words like you did as a young parent. Connecting with each grandchild uniquely, and leaving a spiritual legacy for when you are gone. Mary Larmoyeux, author of the book "One-of-a-Kind Grandparent Connection," explains the lasting value of grandparents.

The Joy of Being a Grandparent

Ideas for Connecting With Your Grandkids

God has designed faith to be passed down from generation to generation. Mary Larmoyeux shares her wisdom as "Nana" on how to make connections with grandchildren. A grandparent, Mary explains, knows how fast time goes by and why it's therefore so natural for grandparents to slow things down and enjoy every moment. Grandparents see things from a different perspective than when they were in the thick of the busy, day-to-day life of parenting.

Ideas for Connecting With Your Grandkids

Consistency Is Key

Pastor Sam Crabtree, a father of two daughters and six grandchildren, offers parents practical help for raising young children. Crabtree explains why boundaries are good and tells parents that if they set rules they don't enforce, it teaches children to disregard what they're saying. Crabtree reminds parents that issues only get bigger once the kids are older, so they need to address the issues as soon as they see them.
