But what Dennis makes clear in this video is that..."What we're really celebrating is all the anniversaries we've made happen because of what God has done through the ministry of FamilyLife."

Here's a portion of a letter that went out to their constituents in January that explains further what they hope to accomplish in this milestone year ahead ...

Most importantly, social media provides one more key opportunity for ministries and radio stations alike to deepen relationships and engagement with listeners which prayerfully, opens doors for life changing messages.

Nancy shares  . . .

"You don't have to look far to know our world is in trouble. Just read the headlines, and you'll see endless accounts of violence, perversion, breakdown of families, and people mocking things of the Lord. We can feel helpless and impotent in the face of such ...

Being at the conference provided a special opportunity for me to visit with Pastor Jim Garlow (Skyline Wesleyan Church, San Diego) and his wife, Rosemary.  Jim was able to greet many radio stations who air his daily one-minute feature, "The Garlow Perspective," in which Jim speaks out on religious liberty issues ...
