What It Takes to Transform a Wedding Into a Good Marriage:  Fr. Nicholas Louh and Dr. Roxanne Louh

What It Takes to Transform a Wedding Into a Good Marriage: Fr. Nicholas Louh and Dr. Roxanne Louh
You can always tell how important something is by the priority placed on it. In Genesis, the very first chapter of the first book of the Bible, God establishes a family, Adam and Eve. The very first thing God does in the New Testament is the merging of family between Mary and Joseph in the birth of Christ. And the very first miracle Jesus performs is at a wedding, the wedding at Cana. It is now officially wedding season, in the month of June more weddings will take place than at any other time of the year. But how do you ensure that a beautiful wedding with all the pomp and pageantry creates a strong marriage, where husband and wife move forward joyfully in whole-life oneness? Enter Fr. Nicholas Louh and Dr. Roxanne Louh. Fr. Nick is a Greek Orthodox Priest who's presided over the nuptials of scores of couples. His wife Dr. Roxanne Louh is a clinical psychologist and family therapist who sees many of those couples after the luster has worn off the glitz of the wedding and a life of children, careers and financial strains complicated their "happily ever after". On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, the Louhs talk about how to overcome difficulties in marriage, even some of the worst things that could happen, like an adulterous affair. But more importantly, how God's design for marriage is the key to a strong marriage, one that truly is, "for better or for worse." Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Author John Burke: Near Death Experiences Have Two Strong Commonalities, Light and a Love Beyond Comprehension

Author John Burke: Near Death Experiences Have Two Strong Commonalities, Light and a Love Beyond Comprehension
Imagine all the love you've experienced in your entire life, from parents, spouses, friends, family, and then multiply it a thousand times. That's the kind of love experienced by people who've had Near Death Experiences; they report being in the presence of God. NDE's, as they are known, are scientifically recognized phenomenon that occur when people are clinically dead and see visions of themselves, their bodies as paramedics try to revive them, doctors as they operate, or even family members in waiting rooms. Some even describe scenes they couldn't possibly have seen except supernaturally. But the one commonality: a love that is so deep and so complete they never want to return to their lives. It's the love they, and probably all of us, are searching for. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, John Burke, best-selling author of "Imagine Heaven" and now his follow-up "Imagine the God of Heaven," explains that millions of people from all different faith traditions, cultures, and educational backgrounds have had NDE's. But the vast majority report similar events, a welcoming benevolent Light and a Love that penetrates the deepest recesses of their souls. Burke says the only explanation is, it's evidence of not only the reality of God, but also God's relentless love. As the Scriptures say, "A love that surpasses all understanding."

Jewish Historian Rick Richman: Hamas' Goal is to Eliminate Israel

Jewish Historian Rick Richman: Hamas' Goal is to Eliminate Israel
It is hard to fight against an enemy whose reason for being is to eliminate you. So says author Rick Richman, as he answers the criticism leveled against Israel of committing genocide in Gaza. It is Israel, he says, that is trying to prevent a genocidal operation perpetrated by Hamas. Richman, the author of  "And None Shall Make Them Afraid: Eight Stories of the Modern State of Israel,"  says the anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian protests are filled with misinformation and misguided passions by young people, students and even faculty, lured into a political position by authorities who choose to ignore the facts surrounding the centuries of clashes between Jews and Arabs and its modern day manifestations. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Richman talks about a long list of topics concerning Israel, including: the ongoing protests on college campuses and why so many are ignorant of what Zionism actually is, Zionism and Americanism, the two great "isms" of the 20th century, that Palestine was never an independent state, why Arabs rejected having their own independent state six times including in 1947, reaction to claims that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza, and war crimes by Hamas as they use their own people, innocents, as human shields. Jews, says Richman, are the "canary in the proverbial coal mine", what happens to them is only the start. Islamic militants will not stop with them until the world is converted to its rule.

Professor: Get Married, Stay Married: A Recipe for Health, Wealth and Happiness

Professor: Get Married, Stay Married: A Recipe for Health, Wealth and Happiness
The data doesn't lie. Getting married and staying married benefits women, children... and men. Social scientist, Professor Brad Wilcox, gives convincing proof that marriage, despite being much maligned today, is actually a better way to live, well, happily ever after. But there are some caveats. First, the myth of the soul mate. No human is perfect and so no potential spouse, no matter how much he or she makes your heart flutter, is capable of fulfilling your every desire. Sooner or later the butterflies go free and what remains is the reality of a relationship that takes work. But it's well worth it. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Wilcox, Professor of sociology at the University of Virginia and a "Future of Freedom" Fellow at the Institute for Family Studies, breaks down the evidence he found while researching his new book, "GET MARRIED: Why Americans must Defy the Elites, Forge Strong Families, and Save Civilization." It's a tall order, but the data shows that coming from a two-parent household is a better reassurance that a child will do well in school, be happier and have a better chance of achieving the American dream. Case in point, Ivy League colleges and universities have an overabundance of overachievers with one common denominator, the majority come from stable, two parent households. Wilcox points out, this is actually odd since many  professors at these liberal establishments tout diversity of family types--single parent, parents never married --but in their own lives represent the more traditional, married parents with children.
