Popular speaker and author Heidi St. John tells how she came to realize three children into her mothering journey that she needed to depend on God each day for His strength and wisdom. She recalls some of her "mommy fails," and reminds women that bad days don't make bad moms. Motherhood is made up of little moments that add up over time and it's exhausting, but it will pay off. Every ounce of energy you invest comes back to you in due season, but you must continue to feed your heart on the Word of God.

Pastor Deepak Reju gives valuable advice to a woman about what to do if her boyfriend won't commit to marriage. When a man spends time with a woman, it perpetuates the relationship, but he needs to commit to her to alleviate her fears. Love isn't just a feeling, but a commitment and self-sacrifice. If a man won't commit and continues to be ambiguous about the relationship, a woman needs to break it off and let him grow in his faith.

Pastor Deepak Reju, author of "She's Got the Wrong Guy," talks about what happens when Christian women date men who aren't believers or are new believers. While "evange-dating" seems like a compassionate and faith-inspired thing to do, it sends mixed messages. If a young man does convert, will it be an act of faith or to get the girl? Reju delves into the reasons why it's not wise to be unequally yoked, and why Christians are to only marry in the Lord.

Biblical counselor and pastor Deepak Reju explains why young women settle for less when it comes to their relationships with the opposite sex. The influence of Disney movies and the fairy tale belief in happily-ever-after, the fear of missing out, and the fear of being alone, all contribute to this flawed decision-making process. Reju talks about what it looks like to be a lady-in-waiting on God.

Dennis and Barbara Rainey talk about the increasing need for parents to talk to their children about sex and sexual identity. In addition, parents need to give their children a biblical view of sex as defined in Genesis, where God made male and female, and talk to their children about what that means.

Do your children know who they are in Christ? Dennis and Barbara Rainey, parents of six and grandparents to 24, talk about a parent’s key assignment: to raise children with a spiritual identity. Knowing they are image bearers of the Almighty, who created them for a purpose, will affect everything else they do. Parents can help children understand who God is by pointing out what God is doing in their lives.

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.
