Part 1: Discerning Wild at Heart
If men didn't grow up with fathers who validated and loved them, they will often turn to women and even porn to find that validation. Dr. James Dobson talks with John Eldredge, author of the best-selling Wild at Heart, about the "father wound." A boy looks to his dad, asking, "Do I have what it takes? Can I be a man? Am I strong? Am I brave?" At the start of Jesus' ministry, God the Father validated Him, saying, "This is my Son in whom I am well pleased." Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free—and He can heal "the father wound" in the lives of men today.
Part 2: Get Your Life Back
Psalm 46 reminds us to "be still and know God," a concept largely lost in the constant busyness of our culture. Dr. James Dobson talks with author John Eldredge about his new book Get Your Life Back: Everyday Practices for a World Gone Mad. He explains the dangers of a distracted, technology-addicted lifestyle and then suggests that we practice the "One Minute Pause," along with soaking up God's creation, and turning off our phones’ notifications. As we unplug from "the fight or flight" culture, our stress-triggered cortisol levels go down, and we can begin to learn how to cast our cares upon the Lord.
