Digital Detox with Molly DeFrank | Wake Up Right
Mom of six Molly DeFrank was sick of screen-time meltdowns. (Sound familiar?) She wanted more for her family, so she pulled the plug, declaring a digital detox for her screen-addicted kids. The transformation blew her away: She got her sweet, happy kids back. The detox was easier than she could have hoped, and the results were better than she could have dreamed. In just two weeks, her children were free from the grip of digital devices. Their moods shifted immediately, and their creativity exploded. They learned how to entertain themselves and enjoy life without screens. Her experiment led to a total tech overhaul that changed her family’s life. Her new book, Digital Detox: The Two-Week Tech Reset for Kids gives you insight into how she did it in just fourteen days, and how you can too. After reading and loving her book, Tim chatted with Molly on Wake Up Right so you can flip the switch and get your kids back! Whether or not you have kids of your own, you'll find this conversation practical, relevant, and applicable. Don't miss their conversation! Original air date on WRGN's Wake Up Right: April 29, 2022

Shrink your world | Wake Up Right
Burdens... we all have them. But are we carrying more burdens than are our own to carry? Have we taken on a heavier yoke than Jesus intends for us? Listen to Tim and Doug as they chatted about stress, burdens, and shrinking our world so we can focus on investing in things that matter, in the things that are right in front of us. "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30, ESV “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30, The Message Original air date on WRGN's Wake Up Right: January 11, 2022

Letting God Be Enough with Erica Wiggenhorn | Wake Up Right
Author and Bible study teacher Erica Wiggenhorn joins us on Wake Up Right once again to share about her latest book, Letting God Be Enough. Drawing from the story of Moses—the greatest self-doubter in the Bible—Erica shows how self-doubt is tied closely to self-reliance. It’s only when you cast yourself on God that you find the true source of strength. Are you enough? The answer is no. . . but your God certainly is. Step out in His power instead of your own and watch your confidence blossom because you’re in the hands of I AM. It was great to have Erica back on the show with us!

Surviving Religion 101 with Michael Kruger | Wake Up Right

Written in the form of letters to his daughter, a student at UNC Chapel Hill, the book is written to address common objections to the Christian faith–the exclusivity of Christianity, Christian intolerance, homosexuality, hell, the problem of evil, science, miracles, and the reliability of the Bible. Born out of his own experience at UNC Chapel Hill thirty years ago, this book is simple and accessible, drawing on his years of experience as a biblical scholar yet with the heart of a father. Dr. Kruger is the president at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, and a leading scholar on the origins and development of the New Testament canon. Dr. Kruger blogs regularly at michaeljkruger.com. View the book Surviving Religion 101 on Amazon here. Original air date on WRGN's Wake Up Right: September 21, 2021
