400-408Emerson Eggerichs, and his wife Sarah host Love & Respect Conferences across the country, sponsored by Focus on the Family, and based on their book Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires & The Respect He Desperately Needs (  Emerson explains the difference between pink and blue sunglasses, and shares how couples can stop spinning in the crazy cycle.  The Bible teaches that husbands are to love their wives, and wives are to respect their husbands (Eph 5:33).  But what often happens when stress or conflict occurs, is that a wife will interpret her husband's behavior of drawing back as "He doesn't truly love me" when in reality, he's doing the honorable thing as a male under stress, by not yielding to the "fight" response and deciding to go the "flee" response.  And inversely, guys interpret their wives pursuit and questioning as a lack of respect, and then the cycle begins – the lack of respect feeds the unloving behavior which feeds the lack of respect, and it goes on and on.  To break the cycle, the most mature person needs to move first.  We have to remember the issue is never really the issue.  We've got to translate.  Emerson explains how.  As an example consider the pink and blue differences of the phrase "I have nothing to wear" – men mean they having nothing clean, women mean they don't have anything new.

428-437Let's listen to how the culture views God and prayer, by listening to an exchange on The View this past Tuesday.

(:34) PO Prayer for Gulf. (President Obama in the Oval Office Tuesday @ 6/15/2010)

(5:19) Prayer whole. (The View on ABC with Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Sherri Shepherd and guest co-hosts DL Hughley and Thomas Roberts @ 6/22/2010)

(:18) Prayer 0, Janeane Garofalo, "the prayer thing he did was pandering and anti-intellectual, and just sort of a waste of time."

(:08) Prayer 1, Sherri, "...prayer works"

(:07) Prayer 2, Elisabeth, "...prayer is the only thing that can help this situation."

(:21) Prayer 3, Joy, "...she should have said un-intellectual not anti-intellectual... Faith is something that you feel, thinking is something that you do with your brain."

(:13) Prayer 4, Joy, "who do I pray to, Tony Hayward of BP or to God?  I think God!"

(:39) Prayer 5, DL, "... To God we must be like that kid who only calls home when he needs money."

(:29) Prayer 6, DL, "... Prayer is an individual thing, you can't go to heaven on an American passport, you have to have an individual relationship with God... We don't pray for the right things."  Pray for regulation?  Pure communism?

(:21) Prayer 7, Joy, "When prayer takes the place of logical thinking, then I think it's dangerous."  Elisabeth, "Prayer is not illogical."  Joy, "No, but it takes the place of thinking."  Elisabeth, "No it doesn't!  That's a complete bigoted statement!"  DL, "This is like def jam."


(:30) Prayer 8, Joy, "It's about faith, faith is not about logic."  DL, "Faith is... You have to suspend reality."

(:32) Prayer 9, Sherri, "The beautiful thing about prayer... is that whatever God you are praying to... He says 'come to me and pray,' because he can still fix the situation."  Joy, "I don't understand why you say 'His will' you don't even know if its a female!"  Sherri, "If she's a female for you, that's okay, I'm not mad at you.  He's a male for me."

528-538Lorraine Whoberry, founder of the S.T.A.C.I.E. Foundation ( which stands for Striving Towards Achieving Compassion, Intervention & Education.  Lorraine's world was shattered on January 29, 1999, when her two daughters, Stacie (16) and Kristie (14) were attacked by Paul Powell.  From her webpage,

Our day began like any other day. I woke the girls for school. Kristie road the school bus, it just wasn't cool to be seen being dropped off at school by your parents. I kissed Kristie goodbye, told I loved her and left to take Stacie to school. She didn't like riding the bus. That morning I dropped her off as usual, kissed her goodbye and told her I loved her. That was the last time I saw Stacie alive. I spoke to her again around noon, after she arrived home from school.

Stacie and Kristie were brutally attacked in our home in Manassas, VA. Stacie was viciously stabbed and killed. The perpetrator then waited in our home for over two hours for Kristie to return home from school.

After finding her sister dead in her bedroom, Kristie was forced to the basement, bound with her own shoelaces, raped, strangled, wrists cut, stabbed, and her throat severely slashed. She was left for dead. No Witnesses – or so he thought – Kristie survived!
