Missional Mothering

One of the most popular concerns of Revive Our Hearts listeners relates to the issue of motherhood.  The ministry regularly hears from women who ask Nancy Leigh DeMoss for guidance and encouragement in every season of mothering.  Understandably, even women who aren't mothers themselves ask for help in relating to their own mother (because each of us has one!)

Looking ahead to Mother's Day, Nancy brings listeners a special interview with Jani Ortlund on the topic of "Missional Mothering" (airing May 4-8).  During this week of programs, Jani, a pastor's wife and mom of four grown children ...

At last Saturday's third annual "March for Marriage" rally in Washington DC, Pastor Jim Garlow joined other Christian and political leaders at the US Capitol to speak and stand in defense of marriage.

In a sermon by Jim called, "The Biblical Foundations of the Marriage ...

Am I truly serving God?  No other life goals or achievements matter if the answer to that question isn't "yes."

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When you were a youngster, what did you hope to "be" when you grew up?  That's the question we asked our friends in media and ministry.

Kimberley Barnes of KGLC/KVIS Radio said, "When I was growing up I wanted to be a wife and a mother; no big aspirations of being president or a rocket scientist.  I wanted to raise a family and take care of them like my precious Momma still does today!"

More thoughtful (and entertaining!) responses are published in our latest newsletter.

There's Only One Way

A survey last fall by Lifeway Research showed that 45% of Americans say there are "many" ways to heaven.  Interestingly enough, 19% of evangelicals agree with that statement.

But, according to John MacArthur ... there's only one way.  And that's the subject of his 2-week study that begins next week on "Grace to You®." From Matthew, chapter 7, John shares several key points from Jesus' message from the Sermon on the Mount while helping listeners know for sure if they are truly on The Way to Heaven (airs 5/4-5/15).

Then later this month, John MacArthur takes a ...
