Guest:Dr. William Bennett
Popular culture has seduced Americans with the false promise that seeking happiness instead of God's will should be life's goal. The message is that if you're not happy, then find a new religion, a new spouse, or even a new family. On today's broadcast, Dr. Bill Bennett asserts that having a healthy marriage and family depends upon an unflinching commitment, especially when times are tough.
