MomentumEarlier this month, Katie Burke and I attended CMB's Momentum 2014 (Christian Music Broadcaster's convention) in Orlando--along with more than 500 music industry professionals (including radio stations, artists, agents, and ministries).

This annual conference at the Disney World Resort is an opportunity to engage with other industry professionals, be encouraged by the music and speakers, and leave equipped ready to return to our respective jobs and carry on the work the Lord has called us to do.

Timely Words from Joni

One of my favorite verses in the Bible is from Proverbs 15:23, "A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!"

Indeed, a timely word is a good thing - whether shared in a radio message like "Joni and Friends®," or shared in person as Joni Eareckson Tada did last week at the Billy Graham Library.  Joni's message to the 300 + crowd  resonated with many of the people who gathered to hear her.

"She's such an inspiration," said Dee Dee Rinehart, who drove up from Rock ...
