Be Alert Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC Recent news exposing the secret life of Ravi Zacharias* is heartbreaking, a grim reminder of what we already know: Christian leaders can fail.

Loving Yourself Marti Wibbels, MS, LMHC Asked by Jewish scholars which commandment is the greatest, Jesus cited Deuteronomy 6:4-5. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
