We love getting the scoop straight from  Michael Certalic, Ministry Director for Telling the Truth.  It was a great day to hear about exciting ministry news and its impact to Christian radio listeners. 

For example:

  • Did you know Stuart Briscoe turns 80 next year?
  • Did you know Pete Briscoe just returned for a 3-month sabbatical?
  • Did you know Jill's latest book Faith Dancing just came out?
  • Did you know you that, as of this morning, Telling the Truth has 1,586 Facebook fans?

Well, now you know!

All-Encompassing World-View

You've probably heard about the recent launch of "The Colson Center" by Prison Fellowship. I've been looking forward to this for quite a while, having a personal passion for apologetics and seeing Christians trained in world-view thinking.

Chuck Colson recently shared with your listeners about this project. It's an amazing site combining everything for a strong world-view training. There are articles, commentary, a "Worldview Gym," and eventually there is going to be classes and even a worldview bookstore.

I'm sure you can think of a project you've done that is just so close to your ...

Does sponsorship really work?

It's a question we never think to ask - because we know first-hand that sponsoring a child through Compassion does work!  (Ask us how many total children are sponsored by our staff)

After a full day of meeting Compassion radio team members Lee Geysbeek and Krissy Thomas, our team left fully energized with a renewed commitment to release children from poverty...in Jesus' name.

Life and the Duggar Family

  • Monday, September 14, 2009

It’s about protecting lives . . . whether it’s one or nineteen.

 

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar recently announced that baby nineteen is on the way and as Brad Mattes shared recently on “Life Issues®,” they’ve received some less than enthusiastic response:

 

“Much of the reaction from over a thousand bloggers has been vicious.  Keep in mind most of these individuals claim to be “pro-choice.”  In other words, the decision of having children is a deeply personal one that should not be interfered with.  It is these same liberators of personal choice that have blogged hateful and intolerant remarks about ...

We've Decided to Call Him Tommy...

At least, that's what I'm lobbying for!

This past weekend, my husband let me decorate the house for fall...I've put leaves out, pumpkins are scattered throughout, and Tommy, our friendly scarecrow on a swing, is hanging from our arbor. I love everything that comes with fall, from apple pies to family gatherings. And this year, Jim Garlow reminded me of another reason fall is such an incredible season-it gives a unique opportunity to talk about the truth of the spiritual world with friends, kids, family and neighbors.

Each year Halloween is growing in popularity. While out ...

The Magnificent Obsession!

  • Friday, September 11, 2009
  • Lee Ann Jackson

One of the greatest longings of a believer's heart is to fulfill God's purpose for their life--to do what He has for them to do. Of course, one can only do that by listening to Him.

In addition reading His Word, going to church and of course, listening to Christian radio (programs like "Daily Light For Daily Living!"), I also like reading books by Christian authors . . . books that challenge me and draw me closer to Christ.

Right now I'd reading Anne Graham Lotz's new book, The Magnificent Obsession-it's a wonderful book that's ...
