IS COLLEGE DEBT AVOIDABLE?
Discussed by George Leef
with John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy (www.popecenter.org)


Part 1 of 2

Too many young adults are thrust into college not knowing enough about the “real world”. The outrageous cost of college is one thing we all know about. But what about credit cards? Are college students blind to the consequences of racking up high credit card debt?

New guest, George Leef, is the Director of Research for the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy. Listen in to the next two segments as George offers some insight as to why college students seem to rack up so much debt, as well as some solutions to avoid financial agony for years to come.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

When the bills come due after they are no longer in college, will their apartments offer them a safe space from Bruno the Bill Collector?

Do institutions of higher education really have the best interest of the student at heart?

Should colleges and universities offer more financial counseling before students make bad borrowing decisions?

PART 2 OF 2 - IS COLLEGE DEBT AVOIDABLE?
Discussed by George Leef
with John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy (www.popecenter.org)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Betsy Mayotte, Director of Consumer Outreach at the non-profit organization American
Student Assistance
 says, “The government and universities aren’t allowed to say you can’t borrow money because they think it’s too much.” Why can’t financial aid counselors tell students “no”?

What are sociology, feminine studies, and organic farmers doing now to make a living? Are they raking in the big bucks or working minimum wage jobs?

Is college the right path for everyone?

Is there a great need for more plumbers and electricians (who make a lot more money than a coffee barista)?

Should parents schedule a meeting over Christmas break with their high school or college student to review time management, grades, part-time jobs, and college loans?

WHEN YOUR KID IS THE GRINCH
Discussed by Danny Huerta
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org

“I want! I want! I want! I want!” Is this all you are hearing right now from your kids?

Danny Huerta offers some great advice for curbing your child’s Grinch-like attitude, focusing on serving others this Christmas season in a way every child can relate to and understand.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Too many people – of all ages – are too focused on “things” at Christmastime (and all the time). How can we stop this materialistic attitude?

What can parents do for their children to teach thankfulness?

Should parents set a budget for Christmas presents and stick to it?

How does serving others teach our children (and us) to be more thankful?

WHY I AM NOT A MORMON
Discussed by Brent Johnson
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Day 5

Brent Johnson concludes “Why I Am Not a Mormon” today. Mark Lanier will be back next week with Part 3 of “Why I Am Not a Muslim”.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Listen in as Brent discusses the Mormon Church’s “works-based” belief and how important sharing their testimony once a month is for their growth in Jesus.

Do you know and love the hymn “How Great Thou Art”? Yes? Brent gives a fresh perspective on music from the Mormon point of view.

What if a Mormon chooses to leave the church? Can they come back? Can they visit their family or friends?

What about prayer? Are their prayers different than Christians?

Points for Home:
Be careful how you judge truth.
Honor God above all things.
