Children A Heritage from the Lord

7/19/2021
Psalm 127:3 says, "Children are a heritage from the Lord." But Dr. Michael Youssef, founder of Leading the Way Ministries, insists that verse 1 provides essential context: "Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain." When God is at the center of the family, He will grow, bless, guide, and protect it. Seek always His direction and your children are likely to emulate you into their adult years.

Billy Graham The Man I Knew Part 2

7/17/2021
On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and Greg Laurie continue their conversation about Greg’s new book, Billy Graham: The Man I Knew. As Rev. Graham’s ministry continued to grow, he saw a pressing need for his "crusades," and invited a young pastor, Greg Laurie, to write relevant sermon illustrations that Billy could use to reach a younger generation. Spending significant time together, Laurie saw that Graham was the same man in private as he was in public: down-to-earth,...

A Challenge to Pastors Part 2

7/16/2021
There are 350,000 churches in America. But are there even 40,000 pastors who fear God and are willing to speak the truth? Dr. Jim Garlow, author of This Precarious Moment, does not believe there are. That’s why he asserts that God has raised up laymen such as psychologist, Dr. James Dobson, football coach and founder of Promise Keepers, Bill McCartney, and public servants such as Dr. Ben Carson, to say what pastors should have been saying all along.

A Challenge to Pastors Part 1

7/15/2021
Too often, pastors hesitate to preach against abortion and the radical homosexual agenda. The Bible speaks clearly on both issues, so why the hesitation? Dr. Jim Garlow, former pastor of Skyline Church in San Diego, asserts that pastors run into the pitfall of wanting to be loved by everyone in their pews. But as he points out, "If you're going to preach the truth, you cannot be liked by everybody in your congregation."

Lets Talk Conversation Starters for Dads Daughters

Many teenage girls and women wish they had a better relationship with their dads. But fathers are often hesitant to talk with their daughters about things that really matter, as if they’d rather do nothing at all than do it wrong. Dr. Michelle Watson Canfield, author of Let’s Talk: Conversation Starters for Dads and Daughters, shares with co-host Dr. Tim Clinton about how dads can begin to have meaningful conversations with their daughters. Girls tend to figure things out and feel valued as...

7/13/2021
In this Part 2 edition, Cindi McMenamin, author of When a Woman Inspires Her Husband, along with her husband, Hugh, share how a Christian wife can be the ultimate encourager to her husband in and outside the home.

The Powerful Influence of a Wife Part 1

7/12/2021
Christian wives are often misled by contemporary culture’s false expectations of their husbands. Cindi McMenamin, author of When a Woman Inspires Her Husband, shares two pieces of advice with Dr. James Dobson. First, she says a wife needs to look to God to be the primary One to meet her emotional needs. And second, she should become her husband’s biggest cheerleader, giving him the respect he desires. When she follows that biblical model, as Cindi’s husband, Hugh, confirms in this thoughtful...

Billy Graham The Man I Knew Part 1

7/10/2021
Like David, whom God plucked from obscurity as a lowly shepherd, Billy Graham was a country boy who grew up milking cows when the Lord chose him to preach the gospel and further His kingdom. Pastor Greg Laurie, author of Billy Graham: The Man I Knew, shares the story of how Billy Graham came to Christ and eventually became America’s best-known evangelist and Christian ambassador to the world. Reverend Graham once told Laurie, "I don't think I'm a very good preacher. But I think God has given...

Becoming a Wingman for Life Todays Promise Keepers

7/9/2021
From flying 45 missions into Iraq as an Air Force pilot and helping the Dallas Cowboys win the Superbowl three times as defensive tackle, Chad Hennings learned one thing: every man needs a wingman. God did not create us to stand alone but to be in transparent fellowship with our Creator and with other men in the body of Christ. That’s why Hennings urges every Christian man to push the reset button by attending the Promise Keepers conference later this month in Arlington, TX.

Moms Raising Sons to Be Men Part 2

7/8/2021
When her 6-year-old son, Brandon, had to be life-flighted to the hospital after a severe seizure, Rhonda Stoppe (pronounced STOP-ee), author of Moms Raising Sons to Be Men, was ready to walk away from the faith when God didn’t heal him. But the Lord reminded her of Scripture that says, "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God and Christ Jesus concerning you." Just as the Lord sent the bear and the lion to prepare David to defeat Goliath, she believes that God used Brandon’s...

Moms Raising Sons to Be Men Part 1

7/7/2021
On today’s edition of Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk, Rhonda Stoppe (pronounced STOP-ee), author of Moms Raising Sons to Be Men, warns "it is possible for a mother to deny a boy his manhood as he grows up." And if she does, Stoppe says he’ll become a mama's boy, and will still be sitting on the couch when he’s 40 years old. Especially as a boy enters puberty, he needs to answer to his father, or, if a dad is not in the picture, then a godly man who will affirm him in his masculinity.

America is a Christian Nation

7/6/2021
Contrary to the false claims of today’s secularists, America is a Christian nation, as the Supreme Court declared in 1892. Indeed, 52 out of the 55 signers of the Constitution were evangelical believers. For example, Benjamin Rush not only said, "I rely upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins," but also stated that the Constitution "is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament." Today's guest, Dr. Robert Jeffress,...

Controlling Your Tongue

7/3/2021
Just as 1 Corinthians 13 is known as the "love chapter," and Hebrews 11 is the "faith chapter," James 3 is called the "tongue chapter." This passage describes how a horse is controlled by the bit in its mouth; a ship by its rudder, and man is controlled by his tongue. Dr. James Dobson and guest R.T. Kendall, author of Controlling the Tongue, remind us that we will have to give an account on the Day of Judgment for every careless word we have spoken.

7/2/2021
Today, like never before, Christian parents are battling the culture over competing worldviews. And the ultimate prize in this battle is our children! That’s why Rebecca Hagelin wrote 30 Ways in 30 Days to Strengthen Your Family. Sadly, 90% of kids who go online will at some point view pornography, and a recent report has revealed that 20% of teens are sending nude photos by text. Rebecca says it’s time to practice "deliberate parenting." God wants you to protect your kids’ innocence and...

Protecting Your Child in a Dark Culture Part 1

7/1/2021
When Rebecca Hagelin took her 13-year-old daughter, Kristen, for a sports physical, the female pediatrician insisted that she have a private chat with the youngster. Rebecca, the author of 30 Ways in 30 Days to Strengthen Your Family, was matter of fact, declaring, "She's a minor. I'm her mother, and I'm staying!" When the doctor told Kristen, just "do what's comfortable for you" sexually, Rebecca explained that her daughter understood that sex is only for marriage. The lesson? God gave your...

A Journey of Widowhood and Grief Part 2

6/29/2021
When Pastor Adrian Rogers died, he left behind Joyce, his bride of 54 years. As she grappled with grief, Psalm 63:3-4 helped her focus on God. "Because Your loving kindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You. Thus, I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name." Years later, on Valentine’s Day, Joyce, the author of Grace for the Widow: A Journey Through the Fog of Loss, invited 14 widows over for dinner to share special memories about their husbands.

After 54 years of marriage, Adrian Rogers, founder of "Love Worth Finding Ministries," died in 2005, leaving behind Joyce, his grieving widow.

Make Your Voice Heard in Heaven Part 2

6/26/2021
Does it seem like your prayers are bouncing off the ceiling? United States Senate Chaplain Barry Black, author of Make Your Voice Heard in Heaven: How to Pray with Power, explains to Dr. James Dobson that believers must pray with purity. Isaiah 59 warns that "Your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear." Chaplain Black counsels us to repent of our sins before God. Only then, as Hebrews 4 declares, can we draw near to the...
