On Tuesday, November 8th, Americans across the country will cast their votes in the midterm elections. This will be a moment in time that will prove to be crucial for the future of our country. Most Christians recognize that our nation is divided, is in serious trouble, and that none of our problems will be solved unless believers step into the public square and cast biblically-informed votes. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton and Gary Bauer, senior vice president of public policy at the James Dobson Family Institute, identify the “kitchen table issues” on the ballot this fall and remind us of our duty and the importance of making our voices heard at the polls.

Did you know that God has a plan for your life? And don’t we all want to live a meaningful life during our time on earth? On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson and Dr. Robert Jeffress continue discussing Robert’s powerful book, Choosing the Extraordinary Life. He advises Christians that to discover their divinely anointed life, they must root themselves in Scripture, seek godly counsel, follow their passion, recognize their gifts, and yield to God’s direction. Psalm 37:4 says, “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”

According to Dave Donaldson and Wendell Vinson, the CEO and President of the CityServe International, the ability to mobilize local churches to provide resources to people in need allows for an open door to share the love of Jesus. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Tim Clinton continues his conversation with Dave and Wendell, who highlight the mission of CityServe and the value of stepping up and taking initiative in serving the community. Through the Farmers to Families program and Operation Border Blessing, CityServe has been able to assist churches nationwide and be a distribution anchor to neighborhoods. 1 Peter 4:10 says, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Theologian A.W. Tozer once said, “A scared world needs a fearless church.” When Russia attacked Ukraine in February 2022, fear was rampant. Five million refugees escaped into nearby countries, while another seven million Ukrainians were displaced. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dave Donaldson and Wendell Vinson, the CEO and President of CityServe International, respectively, proclaim what Satan meant for great harm, God is using for His glory. Over the last few months, CityServe has equipped 1,800 Ukrainian churches and another 1,000 churches in neighboring countries with food and supplies. The ultimate mission is to lovingly care for people and unapologetically proclaim the gospel.

Did you know that an average of 25 million Christians do not vote during a presidential election? Or that more than 65 million Christians don’t exercise their right to choose in their local elections? On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jason Yates, the CEO of My Faith Votes, warns us that if our values aren’t represented at the polls, someone else's will be. God has uniquely gifted us with the privilege of selecting our leaders, and we have a responsibility to put our faith into action during an election. Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.”

A fresh cut floral arrangement is symbolic of America. Severed from our historical Christian roots at the hands of a hostile culture, we are dying as a nation.

Dr. Dobson and Metaxas remind us of the importance of American liberty, and what we can do as a nation to save it.

As Americans, we are blessed to enjoy the fruits of our freedom, born out of the hardship of generations past. But we need to be aware of something very important: liberty is fragile. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson and Eric Metaxas discuss Eric’s book, If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty. Metaxas points to author and social critic Os Guinness’ notion of the “golden triangle of freedom,” which states that freedom requires virtue, virtue requires faith, and faith requires freedom. Sadly, we have forgotten America’s precious history, and are thus in danger of losing our republic.
