Understanding Respect

September 4, 2017

Nina Roesner wasn't happy in her marriage. Though her husband ranked their relationship a perfect 10, she only rated it a two. Roesner, the executive director of Greater Impact Ministries, tells how God grew her in her relationship with her husband as she began to delve into the topics of respect and submission. Roesner began to realize that she had to communicate her needs, rather than expecting her spouse to read her mind, and that learning to respect her husband was the first step in loving him well.

Why believe in Christ? Cold-case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace, along with his wife, Susie, explain that unreasonable faith believes something that's not true.

That's where we want our kids to be as they understand the Scriptures.
