Children are deeply affected by fearful times, differently than adults. Out of many years of teaching on marriage and parenting, John and Donna Avant will guide you practically and biblically, to help the children in your life run to God with their fears.
It’s hard, deciding who and what you will become. To want to make a difference but not know how. We’ve been there, we get it. And at Life Action we found our purpose in helping Christian say yes to God.
There is nothing quite so devious as moral impurity. But there is also nothing quite so predictable. Our great Enemy knows that he doesn’t have to be creative with immorality. The bait is so strong that it just needs to be placed within our reach. If we do not immediately apply God’s remedy, we will be ensnared. Sweet for a moment, the end results are always excruciating.
“We must be careful to avoid spiritual quarantine.” Watch as John Avant and Pastor Chris Stephens explore how to keep our faith vibrant in challenging times.
Dealing with Differences – Opposites attract…until they don’t. Those cute little things that were so attractive about your spouse can eventually become really frustrating differences that can get us irritated really quickly. This week we will talk about how we recognize the unique ways we are wired and maximize those differences in our marriage.
We must ask ourselves what is God saying. Listen as John Avant and Ronnie Floyd share how to live with purpose during this time.
Even in times of personal and corporate trial, we can experience true peace. As COVID-19 continues to impact churches and families around the world, Life Action remains steadfast in our mission to call believers everywhere to say YES to God.
%%excerpt%% On this day in history, Thomas, disciple of Jesus, saw the risen Savior. He was “Doubting Thomas” before that day, but never again after. It is interesting that this event happened in a time of fearful self-quarantine for the followers of Jesus. Since Jesus was crucified, they had been spending much of their time locked away in a room out of fear that they would be the next ones on the cross.
Soon we will not be spending every day in our homes. We will go back to work, back to school, and back to church. Or will we? Is there really any going back? Should there be? How should the Church be different? What should those who follow Christ in this country do next to join Jesus in His mission? John Avant, President of Life Action will addresses these questions. Don’t miss it!
What are we doing this weekend? That cost HOW much? Can you finally take out the trash? Where do you want to go eat? What do all these questions have in common? They are all potential landmines to eventually conflict. But that doesn’t mean we should avoid them, or can avoid them. But how we navigate our expectations and the differences of opinion we have says a lot about our lives, our relationships, and ultimately what we believe about God. This week on Let’s Talk, we’ll share some of the ways we handle conflict, (that’s been humorous but not helpful), and how Jesus is showing us a better way.

Everyone gets hurt. If you haven’t been hurt yet, just keep breathing … it will happen. Once hurt, you must decide how you will respond. And you really have only two choices—to forgive or to take revenge. Revenge has many forms. You can withdraw, ignore, retaliate with words or actions, gossip and slander to tear someone down, and on and on. But what you’re saying is this: “You’ve hurt me; therefore, I’m going to take this matter into my hands and hurt you back.”
What is happening to churches in the midst of the Covid-19 Crisis? Join Thom Rainer and John Avant as they talk about what God is doing in churches across America.
Those who understand realize that God’s presence is the greatest of all treasures. If you have His presence, you have everything you need—wisdom, joy, power, peace, direction, love, life itself. But if you do not have His presence—if He is not with you—you have nothing that is valuable or that lasts.
Easter, A.D. 260. I sit at my favorite place along the rocky shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea and watch the Easter sun rise over the city of Carthage. I’m a regular visitor here. I like this spot so much, not only because of the view but because of the privacy. It’s a long, rough walk to get here, and once I sit down behind the stone ruin of a port long abandoned since the Punic wars, I am unlikely to see another living soul.
How can we glorify God in the midst of suffering? John Avant and Gary Witherall break down how believers can honor God in times like these....
Have you realized that your spouse can’t read your mind? We sure have. No matter how long we’ve been together, we keep realizing that our words really matter. What, when, and how we talk to each other makes a huge difference in our marriage. – Brent & Maggie

One of the most wonderful things about the Bible is its reality. It depicts man as he really is, with all his doubts and fears and questions. It shows us ourselves … and then it shows us our all-sufficient God.
