Wake Up Right

  • Connecting in an Age of Isolation and Incivility (Audio)
    As we enter the holiday season, we may feel the challenge of connecting in an age of isolation and incivility, the tension of awkward relationships, and the dread small talk around the table. It seems conversation is getting harder. Dr. Heather Holleman joined us on Wake Up Right and invited us to reimagine better conversations. Her new book demonstrates how we can develop authentic community by changing our relational mindsets to become more curious, to believe the best about others, to express concern about their lives, and to share our own.

Revive Our Hearts

  • A Week of Thanksgiving (Article)
    God’s Word teaches that thankfulness ought to be a way of life. But in the reality of our daily lives, it is so easy for discontentment, murmuring, complaining, criticizing, or even bitterness to displace the “attitude of gratitude.” Cultivating a thankful heart will result in speaking thankful words. But we all need periodic reminders to be thankful, and, for most of us, developing the habit of thankfulness may require some practice! Here are some practical suggestions for devoting one week to practicing thankfulness. You may even want to include the whole family in this project.
  • The Attitude of Gratitude (Article)
    The “attitude of gratitude” is something that desperately needs to be cultivated in our hearts, our homes, and our society. Its presence brings a host of other blessings, while its absence has profound, lethal repercussions.
