The Family You Marry Into
I can hear myself now: “I, Lisa, take you, the Smiths…” It’s often said that you don’t just marry a person, you marry their whole family. And that’s somewhat true. But how do you balance that with the biblical mandate to leave and cleave? This week we discuss the principles of healthy boundaries in the realm of in-laws and extended family: what’s right, what’s wrong, and what needs grace and a generous dose of compromise. Fortunately we have the perspectives of a newlywed, a married-life veteran and a “I haven’t had to think about this before” college student to guide us through the ins and outs of marrying a person and the family that comes with him or her.
JJ Heler Goes Deeper
Guests: JJ Heller,
CCM folkster JJ Heller and I went to the same church as children and didn’t even know it! I knew there was a reason I liked her. JJ and her husband, Dave, popped by the studio with their two small girls to talk about life as indie artists who must balance creativity, career management and family life. They also sang for us, live. Oh, yeahhhh.
Guests: Sam Moorcroft,
“I love you’re profile! Its so, great!” Ugh. Bad spelling and grammar is just–well–bad. And embarrassing, if you’re trying to put your best foot forward online. ChristianCafe.com president Sam Moorcroft answers this week’s Inbox question from a listener who wonders if her grammar standards are too stringent. Listen in and get the scoop.
