If you want to connect with your teens, you have to be available. That's the advice of author Jeffrey Dean. Dean gives parents some practical advice for effectively communicating with their kids.

Dean encourages parents to look for opportunities, like driving them to school or dinnertime, to have great conversations.

Jeffrey Dean, author of the book, "Raising Successful Teens," knows that raising a successful teen is less about perfection and more about pursuit. Encouraging your kids to make good grades, get into a good college, and marry well is fine, but Dean says parents should have a bigger goal than that. Dean believes parents should be intentional about raising kids who love the Lord above all else. To see that happen, parents have to recalibrate their definition of success. Step one for parents is to model a faithful, loving walk with Christ themselves.

College pastor Shelby Abbott talks about dating and why the important parts should not happen digitally, including asking for a date.

How can Jennifer Greenberg, a trained opera singer, still sing and find joy despite growing up with a father who was physically and sexually abusive? Or a mom who enabled the abuse? Or a pastor who didn't offer protection and help, but only reinforced her worst fears? Listen as hosts Dave and Ann Wilson, with Bob Lepine, uncover the source of Jennifer's defiant belief in a God who never leaves nor forsakes you, but One who knows our suffering first-hand.

Bob Lepine, with hosts Dave and Ann Wilson, sit down with Jennifer Greenberg, author of the book "Not Forsaken," as she tells her story of growing up with a father who was teaching Sunday School at church while at the same time being physically, sexually, and emotionally abusive at home. Jennifer would have nightmares about being raped, and expected to die before turning 21. Hear the chilling details of the moment her father actually confessed out loud, "You're gonna have to accept that I'm evil." But also find the hope Jennifer found in Genesis 50:20, "You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good."

The only way to really love like you mean it is to show the attributes of love used by the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13. Hosts Dave and Ann Wilson sit down with Bob Lepine to discuss his new book on godly love, which is patient, kind, etc. Learn why niceness merely responds, but kindness initiates. A wife serving her husband in tangible ways in the home. A husband filling his wife's car with gas to relieve that worry. Both are acts of lovingkindness and a reflection of a God whose "lovingkindness is better than life." (Psalm 63:3, NKJV)
