January 30, 2019

Dennis and Barbara Rainey talk about identity, one of the four pillars of parenting. When actively parenting, they were conscious that they were helping their six children know who they were, especially in regards to their gifts and talents. Looking back, however, they wish they had been more aware of their children’s EQ or emotional quotient, than their IQ. The Raineys stress the importance of teaching children what to do with their emotions.

Tim Muehlhoff, author of “Defending Your Marriage,” exposes the real enemy of your marriage--Satan.

Every couple will have conflict. But it's how they handle that conflict that makes all the difference. Author Jim Burns explains that fear is often hiding behind our defensiveness. He feared that his wife wouldn't like him, for example, and his wife, Kathy, often feared Jim would leave her. But once you realize your fears, you can face them and handle conflict better. In some cases, a couple might have to agree to disagree, and that's okay.
