Packing up Poverty

John Rakis from WPHN meeting his Compassion sponsored child DavidWhat would it be like to share with people at your radio station or place of ministry what poverty really looks like, smells like and sounds like?  That's what a group of us recently sought out to do with the help of Compassion International.  New friends joined me from WCSG (Grand Rapids, MI), WPHN (Gaylord, MI) and WXML (Upper Sandusky, OH) on a journey to find poverty in Bolivia -- and poverty quickly found us!

Compassion International seeks to release children from poverty...in Jesus' name.  Our team knew well the ministry's motto, but would we be able to ...

Bob Lepine, co-host of "FamilyLife Today," tells us that when there is conflict between two people there is murder in their hearts.  As James 4:2 (NAS) reads ... 

"You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel..."   

Bob Lepine at True Woman '10Unfortunately, that same principle applies to marriage.  Bob says, "as long as couples want what they want and don't get it, they too murder in their hearts."  That can be a difficult statement to swallow for any believer.

Joni and Friends® - Because God Likes Different

Joni Eareckson TadaAs I was looking at this beautiful picture of Joni, I thought to myself, "Joni paints with her mouth, and I carry things under my chin."

I was born a Congenital below-the-elbow Amputee. From day one, I had to learn to do things differently. I was 10 when I learned how to tie my shoes, and I can assure you there's no "around this and that" song that goes with my double knotted fun.

I finally figured out how to type one-handed and "do" my hair in college (leaving home for school was a terribly scary and forcefully liberating ...

Online AdvertisingIt's all too easy to be whisked into the world of online advertising with Google Ads or Facebook or some other platform. Entering a few words, putting in a target URL and selecting demographics happens quickly. And then, Wa La--your Ad is live!

But here's the question: Have you been successful?

Don't Be the End of the Chain

Yesterday was a memorable day at Ambassador when we welcomed two wonderful women who love the Lord and each other!

What a privilege it was for me to sit-in on the conversation as Nancy Leigh DeMoss interviewed longtime friend and her former pastor's wife, Anne Ortlund.  They recorded a series of future programs for Revive Our Hearts on the topics of widowhood, aging gracefully, discipleship, and revival.

These ladies had a rich discussion that I can hardly wait for your listeners to hear!  A takeaway "nugget" for me was hearing Anne share with Nancy about the hundreds of young ...

The God Who Rescues

Enjoying a summer day at the beach watching the waves, I thought about life--   how the high and low points come crashing into our days - sometimes quickly and in such a big way, at other times, slowly and hardly noticeable.

As a large wave came crashing to the shore, I noticed the crew on the Life Guard Rescue boat watching the beach goers attentively and it made me wonder . . .  where do unbelievers go when the crashing waves of life hit and they need to be rescued?

The husband who was laid off and can't find employment.
