FamilyLife Today's Bob Lepine brings a wise and seasoned perspective to what God is doing in the world amidst COVID-19. He offers us two options on how to view the current crisis: 1) the "Imagine" option, with no one or nothing governing our world and the universe simply running on it's own, and 2) the "Providence" option, with the world and everything in it governed by God. Learn the practical comfort and profound implications of this "Providence" option.

What does the Bible mean when it calls women "the weaker vessel"? Author Mary Kassian explains that women are more vulnerable to being abused and hurt. When women are hurt they sometimes respond in one of two ways: They either live by their emotions or they suppress their emotions, and neither option is good. Kassian gives women practical advice for engaging their emotions in a God-honoring way. Show Notes and Resources Find resources from this podcast at https://shop.familylife.com/.

Award-winning author Mary Kassian, who had five brothers, grew up believing she could do anything boys could do-and the feminist movement confirmed that. But Kassian loved Jesus, and as she grew older she tells how she started to recognize that what she viewed as strength wasn't really strength at all. Kassian shares how submission to Christ affirms a woman's identity and gives her strength from within. Show Notes and Resources Find resources from this podcast at https://shop.familylife.com/.

I've experienced this personally both as s son and as a husband. Divorce is a devastating result of not taking care of our inner self and our marriage.
