Dr. Ted Engstrom

Are you counting the weeks until retirement? Do you look forward to sleeping in and playing golf to your heart's content?

Years ago, Dr. Dobson sat down with his long-time friend, Dr. Ted Engstrom, who was still going strong at the age of 86!

Together they remind us that if Moses or the Apostle John had retired, we wouldn't have the Ten Commandments or the entire book of Revelation. Listen and find out how to add life to your years!

Baby boomers have reached retirement age, and as the medical field continues to make advances, people are living longer lives. Listen to a fabulous discussion about the needs of the elderly and how we can minister to them.

James and Shirley Dobson's delightful daughter, Danae, has dedicated her time and talents to caring for the older generation. Danae has a gift for reaching people of all ages with the love of Christ. It's a wonderful reminder for each of us to take time out for those who may have been forgotten.

Part 1 with Dr. Jim Conway

Dr. Jim Conway, a man of great faith, was shaken to the core on the day his 16-year-old daughter Becki lost her leg to the ravages of cancer.  We’ll peer into a father's broken heart as he asks, “Can we really believe Romans 8:28?  Do ‘all things work together for good?’”  His answer will inspire you.


Part 2 with Jim's daughter, Becki

CANCER — the word itself can cause us to wince. In part one we heard from a father who watched his teen daughter battle with the devastation caused by this disease. Now you’ll hear from the young woman as she takes the microphone to share her own thoughts. Her perspective just might surprise you!
