Best guy on christian radio!
I love listening to Dr. Carlson - he's definately a man of God and he guides so many people in the the right direction - and that is toward Jesus. I personally support his ministry and have called in on the show once! It's a must listen....I listen every day on the radio, however life happens and you miss it sometimes I'm so glad I found it on iTunes!
best advice for healthy familes
Dr Randy has excellent advice. Follow what he says and you will bennefit. Get yourself in the Word. Get in a Bible preaching church, find friends that encourage to live Biblically and love your family as Jesus set the example and what results you will see. The earlier the better.It is all about praying "Lord Change Me" and then obeying what He directs you to do. Trust and Obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.
