News & Insights

With 50 years of experience, we "get" that things are always changing!

In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

HomeCatherine Clark Murphy, a writer and photojournalist aboard the Africa Mercy is going home to Texas for a few weeks.

But, as she writes in her blog, "home" now carries a whole new context. There have been too many experiences and stories and people in her life on the Africa Mercy to quantify - to just classify - her time there as a temporary volunteering assignment.

Her abnormal life on the Africa Mercy has now become her normal. So, what happens when she goes back to her original normal life in Texas? I hope she writes to let us know.

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.

"Taking on a pet is a contract with sorrow." -- Carol Anshaw


Chloe

Yesterday I lost my best friend.

Thirteen years ago, Culloden Miss ("Chloe") arrived at our home on Dundee Court.  Let's just say it wasn't an altogether joyous occasion.  There was a classic "misunderstanding" between me and Jon--I thought he had encouraged my bringing home the pup in the pet store who hadn't sold after four months.  Jon didn't recall the conversation quite the same.  It didn't help when the two reigning Scotties, Aberdeen Lass ("Abby") and Belleshills Beauty ("Belle"), evidenced their unhappiness with the ...

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.

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.

Beyond Breadwinner: Dads Make a Difference

We are living in a fatherless society.  While our culture tends to treat fathers as unnecessary, it's apparent that a father's presence is critical to raising healthy, confident children.  In fact, research indicates that fathers make all the difference in the world in their children's lives.

All this month, the daily "Family Facts" program focuses on fatherhood, sharing helpful information about their critical role in our culture, one that goes far beyond that of breadwinner.

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