Are Our Kids Ok?

Teens can be moody. But how can you tell if a son or daughter is experiencing normal teenage angst or something more serious? Pastor David Murray, author of Why Is My Teen Feeling Like This?, explains most teens go through spells of quietness and withdrawal, but it won't last long. If you see your teen retreating, do something they enjoy doing and start the dialogue. If your teen is totally uncommunicative or alludes to suicide, seek professional help with either a medical doctor or Christian counselor.

Episode 36: Legacy Series - Giving Thanks and Praise
*Show Notes* After my grandfather passed away a couple of years ago, I started contemplating the legacy that he left behind. Some of the sweetest times we shared were gathered around the table as a family at his house in the mountains of North Carolina. As we head toward the end of the year and look back on 2020, I thought it was a great time to reflect on a tradition we have in our family – and a command that we are given repeatedly in God’s Word.* * *Scripture Referenced*     ·       1 Thessalonians 5:16-18     ·       Philippians 4:8-9     ·       Isaiah 43     ·       Habakkuk 3:17 * * *Going Farther*     ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/    *Websites:*     ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/     ·       Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/     ·       Samaritan’s Purse -- https://samaritanspurse.org/   *Facebooks:*     ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/     ·       Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/     ·       Billy Graham Radio Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Thank God for 2020: Episode 669
What we’re grateful for even in a difficult year, plus biblical dating advice from The Porch, and how important is spiritual fervor?   Featured musical artist: Austin Stone Worship  Roundtable: Giving Thanks for All the Hard Stuff Channeling Alexander from the popular children’s book, many of us describe 2020 as the “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad” year. We’ve faced grief, loss, delays and disappointments in everything from jobs, health, our social lives, the political landscape and more. To say that 2020 has been tumultuous is an understatement. With so much uncertainty and hardship, why should we be grateful? And how do we actually do it? Our guests talk about the struggles they’ve faced this year, but also how they’ve learned to trust God and stay thankful through them all.    If you going through a difficult time right now, check out our Counseling service. Culture: Dating Priorities for Christians In our tech-saturated world, hiding your secrets can be easy during the early stages of dating. But over time, your true character (and your date’s) will come out. How do you steer clear of fake game-playing and choose wisely in conversations and connections? Pastor David Marvin, leader of Watermark Church’s The Porch — one of the largest young adult gatherings in the U.S. — joins us to discuss a recent series on dating they did called Matchmaker. He’ll give practical and biblical advice for dating and relating in today’s culture.  Inbox: Is He Spiritual Enough? She met him online and thinks he’s a great guy. He seems to like talking about politics and cars, but when it comes to spiritual topics, something seems off. Is that a problem, or is she too quick to judge? Pastor Mark Bates weighs in.

Painful Endings and New Beginnings: Zim Flores & Kayla Stoecklein
Have you ever experienced the pain of reaching the end of something you loved—a relationship, a job, a phase of life? Looking back, how was God able to lead you from that loss into a new chapter? Entrepreneur and author Zim Flores is familiar with the pain of letting go. A few years ago, she gave up her highly successful company, Travel Noire, because she felt God calling her to move to a new place. Looking back, Zim can see how God worked all things together for her good, which she talks about in her new book called Dare to Bloom. Mental health advocate Kayla Stoecklein experienced the tragic loss of her young husband to suicide, just as he was hitting his stride as the lead pastor of a large church in California. Reeling from her new life as a widow with three young boys, Kayla began to reexamine the way she thought about mental health, and God helped Kayla use her story to begin helpful and healing conversations around this issue.

He will honor that sacrifice, whether it is tomorrow, whether it's next month, whether it's five months or a year from now. God always makes good on His promises.” - Zim Flores “I am an open vessel. I think the best thing that we can be for God is available.” - Zim Flores “I believed with enough prayer that God would intervene, that God would save [Andrew]. I was willing to do whatever it took to beg God for that miracle, and we didn't get that miracle.” - Kayla Stoecklein “Oftentimes there's so much shame and stigma with that word suicide. I think oftentimes the family that's left in the shrapnel is afraid to say that word, is afraid to admit that it was a suicide and tries to hide it up or tries to cover it or thinks it's their fault. And I knew right away that it wasn't anybody's fault.” - Kayla Stoecklein “God was on the move and He handed me this microphone, and I couldn't look away. And so I kept sharing and I really, truly felt the presence of God like I had never felt in my entire life.” - Kayla Stoecklein “We serve a God that can squeeze so much purpose out of our pain and that can turn really horrible, horrific, ugly things into beautiful redemption stories for others.” - Kayla Stoecklein ________________________ Enjoy watching these additional videos from Jesus Calling YouTube channel: Audio Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PrbuwH Video Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PsmEkJ What’s Good?
