Wow, God

God is amazing.  And He is into the details of your life.

Have you ever had a friend tell you a story from their life, a story so amazing, so intricate, so undoubtedly supernatural--you find yourself thinking about it for days, and uttering under your breath "Wow" each time it crosses your mind?  The God stories of life are the best stories ever written.

How about you?  Do you have a "Wow, God" story to share?  If so, share it here in the comment section, so everyone can read it!  Or if it's just too personal for everyone to read, but you still want to share it with us, email it to Lisa&Eric@klove.com.

Maybe it's a story from this week, maybe it's in conjunction with an amazing graduation, or an upcoming wedding... Or maybe it's your story from 20 years ago that is so powerful, so supernatural, so amazing--it seems like it just happened yesterday. Share and give us all a glimpse of God--and imagine us all saying "wow"!

Hear some of the WOW stories we heard this morning (click links to listen):

"Bullying" - Child Expert Michele Borba

There seems to be an alarming amount of stories in the news lately about "bullying". If you're a parent of a child in school, you know it's a big concern.  So how do you help your child and what are the signs to look for that your child might be the victim of a bully?  Child and parenting expert Dr. Michele Borba joined us this morning for some helpful and timely advice.

To listen to our conversation with Michele, check out the links at the bottom of this post.

One quick way to help your kids deal with a bully is to remember the word "CALM"

C - be calm

A - be assertive

L - look the bully in the eye

M - make some noise

Signs to look for ...

Repeated change in your child's behavior and regular routines

Clingy ... they don't want to go outside or don't want to go to school

Afraid of incoming texts or emails (cyber-bullying)

Changes in their sleep, lack of focus, changes in their grades

When they come home, they run to the bathroom - 43% of bullying happens in unsupervised school bathrooms

Expensive items leaving your home - your child could be the victim of extortion

They run to the fridge when they get home - especially girls - they are being excluded in the lunchroom and don't feel safe
