Life Issues® Institute

Here's the most recent news and updates for this outstanding ministry!

A Labor of Love

  • Monday, October 14, 2013

I've been blessed with three children.  Each pregnancy was uneventful.  There were no complications and each child was born healthy.

Looking back on my life, those cumulative 27 months were among the most joyous of my life.

But, what about those times when a mom receives the good news, "Congratulations, you're pregnant!" while simultaneously hearing, "You have cancer."

"A Labor of Love . . . When a Mother's Life Hangs in the Balance" with Brad Mattes, Executive Director of the Life Issues® Institute, is a 26:00 radio special about two heroes for children.  Two moms with very different stories ...

Life Issues® Today

  • Monday, September 16, 2013

My 17 year old son has a smart phone. Of course, it's never far from reach.

While he does his fair share of texting on it, the phone has also become a great tool to keep him updated.

He now uses the phone to receive emails from the church youth group, school cross country and CNN (thanks to a forward-thinking U.S. government teacher who made the CNN subscription part of their class curriculum). 

At a moment's notice, my son knows about a church activity, a team practice update or about what ...

In the Know with "Life Issues®"

  • Monday, August 19, 2013

My dad liked to be in the know -- he subscribed to Newsweek, read the paper daily and his evening routine included watching the news.

I'm not the news or political junkie my father was but I do like to be informed.

As a mom, I need to be informed.

On a recent "Life Issues®" broadcast, Brad Mattes shared about the vaccine, Gardasil -- the same vaccine which our pediatrician wanted to administer to my teenage daughter.   What Brad shared in his commentary underscored my decision to decline the vaccine:

"Gardasil is the vaccine given to young girls to protect them ...

Radio Stations Protecting the Unborn

  • Monday, July 22, 2013

"Last week on my way to work my route took me by the Orange County California Planned Parenthood Office. There was one woman on her knees on the sidewalk in front of Planned parenthood praying. This was her effort to protect the unborn. It was on my mind for some time to do something on KWVE to help protect the unborn. How could we share the message of Pro-Life with our listeners. When I learned about the 1 minute daily program Life Issues® I immediately knew we had to air this program, and we are."

Harnessing the Power of Radio

  • Monday, June 10, 2013

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.

The value of life is top of mind everyday to Brad Mattes, host of "Life Issues®." A veteran of the pro-life cause, with over 37 years of educational, political and humanitarian experience, Brad stands at the ready to address daily life issues.

Harnessing the power of radio, Brad is ...

Gosnell -- The Face of Abortion in America

  • Monday, May 13, 2013

I'm having lunch today with a friend -- my first time being with her since she became a new mommy.  After 6 years of trying to conceive, she and her husband adopted a baby boy 4 months ago.

On Monday, late-term abortionist, Kermit Gosnell was found guilty on three counts of first-degree murder in three of the four babies' deaths.  He could get the death penalty in each case.

The tragic dichotomy in both these realties is palatable.

My friend has long wanted, prayed and waited for a baby.

Gosnell sits awaiting his sentence for murdering babies.

Brad Mattes, speaker ...
