Best of Happiness Hour 2018
Win Some, Lose Some: You can’t win them all. You’re going to “lose” more than a few times. Dennis lost one this week, flying to a speech that was cancelled while he was in mid-flight to snowy, freezing NY. We choose how to react what happens to us.
What’s the Use of Worrying? : You can drive yourself crazy (and make yourself unhappy) with excessive worrying. How do you get control of it? Dennis has suggestions. So do listeners.
Pain vs. Unhappiness: There is a big difference between pain and unhappiness. They are not the same thing.
Overcoming Trauma: How does one regain happiness after experiencing trauma? Dennis has suggestions. Callers do, too.
Many Ways to Happiness: Sometimes things in life don’t go the way we would like. Can you still be a happy person? Dennis says, yes. There are many ways to happiness.
Identity and Happiness: You have to know who you are to be happy. Identities are important to happiness. That involves knowing your sexual identity, a religious identity and a national identity.
Best of Male/Female Hour 2018
Marriage over Kids: Who should your first priority be? Your spouse or your kids?
How to Love: How would you like your spouse to express their love for you? It seems like a basic question, but how many have thought about it, let alone describe it?
Do You Enjoy Each Other?: Love is important, but it doesn’t conquer all. A question about a prospective spouse is: “do you enjoy that person?” If you can’t answer to the affirmative, you have a big problem.
Alison Armstrong – Factory Installed: In between Mother’s and Father’s Day, Alison explains fundamental differences between men and women.
Mistakes: What is the biggest mistake that you and/or your spouse have made as a couple?
Alison Armstrong – Two Key Needs: We all want fulfilling relationships. Renowned relationship expert Alison Armstrong isolates two key components and what stops us from getting them.
Best of Ultimate Issues Hour 2018
Rape of a Name: Is the rape of a name comparable to the rape of a body?
A Moral God: Why is this the most important idea in history?
Man in the Middle: The Bible puts man in the middle of history. The logical conclusion of atheism, ironically, is that man is insignificant.
Whatever Happened to Forgiveness?: Dennis talks to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, founder of This World: The Values Network. The topic is whatever happened to forgiveness, especially in light of the Roseanne Barr episode.
Can People Change?: Given that Yom Kippur begins tonight, Dennis addresses a key issue of the holiday – can people change? And if so, what’s the best way to do it?
Evolution Revolution: Dennis talks to Stephen Meyer, Director of the Center for Science and Culture at the Discovery Institute in Seattle. His latest book, which he edited, is a collection of essays by leading scientists: Theistic Evolution: A Scientific, Philosophical, and Theological Critique.
