Blending Your Family 32: Helping Children Cope with Divorce Part 2 – Knowing When to Seek Help

[display_podcast] Children’s response to going through the divorce is as varied as the kids themselves.  Some have a very hard time with it while others seem to take it in stride.  My son, who was four at the time of our divorce, took it quite well.  He never showed signs of anger and seemed quite content.  In fact, as an adult, he has remarked how he felt it was for the best and never regretted the divorce.  He saw his dad and dad’s family often and everyone loved on him, I am grateful that he … [Read more...]

Carty’s Contemporary Classics: Take A Look At The Snake, part 4

Some people who are “Born Again”… and KNOW that they are born again… You see, you’ll know that you know when you are. But, when you’re not sure, then you probably aren’t.

Jesus in HD 118: A Jesus Who “Gets It”; A Jesus Who “Gets” You!

[display_podcast] It may sound strange to you, as you will hear on this PODCAST. But if I kicked a bottle and a genie popped out, offering to grant me but one wish, any idea what I’d wish for?

[display_podcast] This is going to be So. Much. Fun for me. (And for you, I hope!) So indulge me here, because I LOVE this stuff. Look carefully and you might see my bemused smile on my face! It is just so comical to me how easily we take what Jesus made so simple, only to make it so insufferably complicated. And to be perfectly honest with you, I am awestruck. That’s the tone with which I want to teach this PODCAST’s passage. I am awestruck at Jesus’ ability to say so much in so little, so m … [Read more...]
