Dave Wilson is joined by former NFL quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky, Jon Kitna, and Josh McCown to provide an inside peek into their time together with the Detroit Lions. While they did not enjoy a lot of success on the field, they experienced a spiritual revival within their team. By the end of it, they saw over 39 players, wives, and children baptized for Christ. As Orlovsky describes it, all three players were psycho-maniacal, obsessive competitors on the field. But they embraced a higher mission as Christ-followers: to be incredible husbands, remarkable fathers, and amazing teammates.

Abigail Dodds teaches on the beauty of God's good design regarding gender. Women, Dodds explains, are absolutely just as fearless as men, but their physical reality naturally makes them nurturers. If women are created to bear life, then what about single women? Though singles are excluded from childbearing, they aren't excluded from anything essential to God's kingdom. Hear how single women can be nurturers and life-givers in their homes and communities.

Abigail Dodds, author of "(A)Typical Woman," says that despite the culture's depiction of women as warriors, women's bodies were made to do something very different. To understand a woman's role, you have to study how a woman is made. Men have 50% more body strength than women. Women, on the other hand, are softer, and have the capacity to bear children. Dodds explains that just because a woman is created differently than a man doesn't make her inferior. A woman's fragility, like a crystal chandelier, only increases her value.

The gifts of the Spirit, she reminds us-love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control-can be exhibited by all believers, regardless of gender.

Nancy Guthrie, author of "What Every Child Should Know About Prayer," recalls a season in her parenting when she realized she was worrying a lot more than praying. She fed her fears and allowed her train of thought to take her to the worst possible outcome. She realized her desires needed to be shaped by the Word of God. So many times parents' prayers revolve around asking God to give their child an appetite for the Word, but using the Scriptures to pray helps parents pray for even deeper things.

When teaching kids to pray, Nancy Guthrie admits that thank you's dominate, and requests follow. Guthrie's desire is to see children grounded in the Scriptures and practicing real prayer. This requires that children understand who God is, which will help them move into prayers of confession-an aspect often missing in family prayer times. Kids follow what we do more than what we say. If we want our kids to have an intimate relationship with God, we need to model that. Show Notes and Resources Our faith is challenged many times over the course of a lifetime, but never so much as when we experience the death of a child. David and Nancy Guthrie talk about the children they were blessed with, and what God has taught them about surrendering all to Him.  (25 min. podcast) https://www.familylife.com/podcast/series/holding-on-to-hope/ Find resources from this podcast at https://shop.familylife.com/Products.aspx?categoryid=130.

When the people in your family hurt you the most, what do you do? Gary Thomas, author of "When to Walk Away," explains that if a family member enjoys tearing you down and destroying the relationship, then it may be time to walk away. You can't fix your family of origin, but you do have the perfect opportunity to build a new legacy and a new family. We need to protect our family members from evil, and if that means limiting our time with those who are destructive, even at holidays, then so be it. Don't let a toxic person distract you from what God has called you to do.

Is your spouse mentally and emotionally draining you? Author Gary Thomas explains that when a spouse is controlling or has a murderous spirit, it might be necessary, in some circumstances, to walk away. Thomas reminds us that a person who is anti-God eventually becomes anti-us. If a man or woman is intentionally destroying those around them but wants to stay in the relationship, it might be because they want to preserve their platform for abuse. Sometimes separation or divorce can be a tool to remove the abusive behavior. Thomas contrasts a toxic marriage from a difficult marriage.

Sometimes it's best to just walk away. That's what best-selling author and pastor Gary Thomas wants you to know when facing toxic people. Thomas remembers learning this lesson after a particular blog post he wrote became popular. One woman made it her mission to discredit him and his family, any chance she could.

Eventually, Eric's addiction became dangerous for the family, and they asked him to move out.

Our views about love have gotten twisted over time. Most people think of love as a strong feeling, but according to Bob Lepine, that is far from how the Scriptures define love.

There is something that happens in our hearts when we start viewing love correctly, as God defines it. God enlarges our hearts.

Studies show that grandparents are the second most important influence in a child's life, according to Pastor Josh Mulvihill and his wife, Jen. Not only can they be a great support to weary parents, but their goal, according to Psalm 78, is to see their faith passed on to successive generations.

A Christian's calling is to make disciples, and for a parent your first disciples are your kids. Author Adam Griffin joins us to talk about a parent's responsibility to love and disciple his/her children. As seen in Deuteronomy, the Hebrews were commanded to talk to their children about the things of God at every opportunity. The key is for parents to live out their faith with passion.

Dave Wilson is joined by former NFL quarterbacks Dan Orlovsky, Jon Kitna, and Josh McCown to provide an inside peek into their time together with the Detroit Lions. While they did not enjoy a lot of success on the field, they experienced a spiritual revival within their team. By the end of it, they saw over 39 players, wives, and children baptized for Christ. As Orlovsky describes it, all three players were psycho-maniacal, obsessive competitors on the field. But they embraced a higher mission as Christ-followers: to be incredible husbands, remarkable fathers, and amazing teammates.

Dave and Ann Wilson talk to Jeff and Shaunti Feldhahn about why couples so often fight about money in marriage. Why would one spouse avoid paying bills until they're delinquent? Why would the other pull Amazon packages off the porch before their spouse sees it? Based on interviews with thousands of couples, the Feldhahns shed light on this and explain why just having conversations about money is the most stressful (but important) part.

If you want to connect with your teens, you have to be available. That's the advice of author Jeffrey Dean. Dean gives parents some practical advice for effectively communicating with their kids. Parents can begin by talking to their kids about the things they like to do or are interested in. Parents can then branch out to more difficult topics. Dean encourages parents to look for opportunities, like driving them to school or dinnertime, to have great conversations.

Jeffrey Dean, author of the book, "Raising Successful Teens," knows that raising a successful teen is less about perfection and more about pursuit. Encouraging your kids to make good grades, get into a good college, and marry well is fine, but Dean says parents should have a bigger goal than that. Dean believes parents should be intentional about raising kids who love the Lord above all else. To see that happen, parents have to recalibrate their definition of success. Step one for parents is to model a faithful, loving walk with Christ themselves. Show Notes and Resources Find resources from this podcast at https://shop.familylife.com/Products.aspx?categoryid=95.

College pastor Shelby Abbott talks about dating and why the important parts should not happen digitally, including asking for a date. Abbott encourages parents to teach their daughters early on how a boy should treat them by talking to them about dating expectations and even taking them on daddy/daughter dates. As they grow to understand Jesus' love for them, they'll have that example to refer to when they decide who they will date.

The only way to really love like you mean it is to show the attributes of love used by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13. Hosts Dave and Ann Wilson sit down with Bob Lepine to discuss his new book on godly love, which is patient, kind, etc. Learn why niceness merely responds, but kindness initiates. A wife serving her husband in tangible ways in the home. A husband filling his wife's car with gas to relieve that worry. Both are acts of lovingkindness and a reflection of a God whose "lovingkindness is better than life." (Psalm 63:3, NKJV) Show Notes and Resources Bob Lepine unpacks ten attributes of genuine love listed in 1 Corinthians 13 in his new book "Love Like You Mean It: The Heart of a Marriage That Honors God".  https://shop.familylife.com/p-5890-love-like-you-mean-it.aspx Find resources from this podcast at https://shop.familylife.com/Products.aspx?categoryid=95.

Dive deep into 1 Corinthians 13 as Bob Lepine, along with hosts Dave and Ann Wilson, discuss the counter-intuitive principles of love God has given for lifelong relationships.

Ponder how God demonstrated His love for us (Romans 5:8). Find hope for any spouse who feels alone in offering this 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love in their marriage, and how to continue to show compassion and grace while also remembering that patience does not mean enabling destructive behavior.

FamilyLife Today hosts Dave and Ann Wilson interview Bob Lepine about his new book, "Love Like You Mean It," and the marriage-transforming truths found in 1 Corinthians 13. Unfortunately, many of us use the phrase "I love you" too casually. Our view of love is based more on how marriage makes us feel rather than how we make our spouse feel. But according to Jesus, the greatest experience of love, in marriage and in life, is found only by those who lay down their lives for the people around them. Learn one practical tip on how to know whether you are displaying biblical love.
