Take Away Value

In Christian radio, we often refer to the need for "take away" value.  We consider how the listener's life will be enhanced from the time investment of hearing a radio program.  Will the message shared resonate in the listener's heart and lead to life changing decisions? 

Of course, take away value isn't exclusive to radio programs - every day, we have the opportunity to invest time and focus on other areas of potential life impacting moments.

Sunday night was one of significant take-away value  . . .  eternal take away value.

Harnessing the Power of Radio

Within a one week span, two people in the life of my family passed away - a neighbor's husband and my son's high school track coach both died of massive heart attacks.  Needless to say, the brevity and value of life is top of mind in our home these days.

To add "Family Facts" to your station or receive more information on resources available from The Heritage Foundation, please contact me.

Without God's plans for us we will ...

Enduring Life's Hardships

In recent days, I've heard about many struggles and difficulties that are impacting the lives of people I know.  A cancer diagnosis, the sudden death of a family member, a husband is stricken with a seizure and remains in critical condition, and a friend gets laid off from his job.  It's very hard to watch friends suffer and yet, as believers, we know that God has a purpose for everything. 

When life gets hard and our circumstances are overwhelming, we all face the temptation to be discouraged or to give in.  This week on Revive Our Hearts, Nancy ...
