What About Single Women?
30:20

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.

Using Your Gifting
25:46

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.

Author Abigail Dodds, a wife and mother to five, talks about the way men and women are inherently different from one another. It's easy to generalize male and female characteristics, but we must be careful. Dodds admits she doesn't really fit the mold of a woman with a gentle and quiet spirit. 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.

Praying For Your Kids
26:47

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.

Teaching Your Kids to Pray
29:16

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.

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.

The long days in the hospital's ICU, along with starting a new company and caring for four other children at home, put a strain on their marriage.

When My Family Is Toxic
28:10

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.

Help! I’m Married to a Toxic Spouse!
27:33

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.

Playing Spiritual Defense

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. After trying his best to appease the disgruntled woman, a friend of Gary's suggested he read the book of Luke and count how many times Jesus walked away. To Gary's amazement, Jesus walked away from people 41 times in the gospels. Thomas defines what a toxic person does, and explains the best way to deal with them.
