PRAISE Weekdays

Steve, Amy & Friends

Sundays 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Steve & Amy have been a popular morning show for over five years and they are very excited about being on PRAISE 106.5! 

They are real people who love talking about family, faith, and life in general, and of course playing lots of uplifting music.

Sometimes it’s light and fun, sometimes more serious, even profound, Steve & Amy are always a pair the whole family can listen to together.

About Steve

My real last name is Sunshine. So it's amazing that my wife Gaye was willing to marry me – since it made her name Gaye Sunshine. We have a daughter named Camille and a son named Meyer.

Camille is a senior in  high school and considering going to college for missions.  She loves doing theatre at her school too.  We adopted Meyer from Haiti in 2008. It took us three years and was without a doubt the biggest step of faith in our lives. He fits in great! He's our family’s official extrovert and has a charisma that just makes other people smile.  He’s also our only real athlete and loves playing football. He somehow loses that quickness when it's time to eat or walk through a store!

I didn't grow up in a Christian home and did not become a Christian until I was 30. My (future) wife played a huge part in my journey by patiently answering my questions.

Having been a cynical non-Christian in the past helps me to relate to people who have negative pre-conceived notions. I love being part of the PRAISE 106.5 Family!

About Amy

What an amazing privilege to be able to be a part of your morning each day. I am so grateful!!  My heart’s desire is that we’re able to come along side you to encourage, equip and offer hope---  and in the midst, hopefully offering you a good laugh along the way.  Life is coming at us from all directions and brings so many challenges.  And everyone knows hearty laughter is not only good medicine but it is also a good way to jog internally without having to go to the gym!  Steve is truly like the brother I always thought I wanted ;)

My husband, Lloyd, is a true gift.  Not only did he move his career so I could take the job with CRISTA, but he is also my biggest supporter.  We got married soon after he graduated from Law School and accepted his first job at a law firm in Virginia.  We got married in Maui, Hawaii and part of our “You’re Married Now” package included a bumper sticker that says, “Just Mauied”—I’ve always love that. HAA!

I am a mom to Quinn, Della and Maggie.  Even though I work outside our home— I want with all my heart to mother as if I stay at home.  I love cooking and trying out new recipes—and even though all my "experiments" aren't winners, I love that my family never complains about being the guinea pigs. We try and get outside as much as possible, we love anything outdoorsy!

I'm so thankful and excited to be a part of the PRAISE 106.5 family with Steve. God is so good :)

  • Oh friends, I have something powerful to share with you today. Something that really impacted me recently. I heard Jill Briscoe from World Relief speak at If:Gathering 2017 a couple weeks ago and she spoke about how she struggles with fear. Anyone relate to that? So said her whole life she has struggled with this fear and she was sharing about a situation where she was pleading with God to not have to do something. But, she kept hearing his prompting. So, she took a step forward IN FEAR and after taking the step the courage came. AFTER she took the step. She was not filled with courage and THEN took the step. She had to step forward first.
