Bringing Up Boys
With so much confusion about the role of men in society, it’s no wonder we have questions about how to bring up boys in the right way. Why are so many young males in crisis? What qualities should we be instilling in our sons? The culture has vilified masculinity, and as a result, an entire generation of boys is growing up without a clear idea of what it means to be a man. To help parents confront this challenge, the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute has developed a new 10-day email series based on Dr. Dobson’s best-selling book, Bringing Up Boys. It’s designed to equip you to wisely lead your sons to become godly men.

Many people casually believe that marriage should be a 50/50 proposition. But we need to be careful that we’re not mistakenly manifesting a performance-based marriage, where a husband and wife are always keeping score. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson concludes his tough discussion with Bob Lepine on the biblical understanding of what real love is supposed to be. 1 Corinthians 13:7-8 says, “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” Are you up for the challenge to follow the Lord’s instruction and take your marriage to a deeper level?

Contrary to the claims of pop culture, true love is not just an emotional term, and not necessarily romantic.

On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson discusses the real meaning of love with Bob Lepine, author of Love Like You Mean It. Bob explains that patience, kindness, and humility are like marital disinfectants that help wash away toxins that can build up over time.
