Your Life - PRAISE Updates

PRAISE 106.5 DJ - Afternoon Drive Time

Four hours is never quite enough time for all I want to share with you. Now you can join me here for the “After Show”! You’ll find discussions on daily show topics, updates from my conversations with your favorite artists and much more!

  • An Evening with C.S. Lewis is coming soon. Larry Lomax caught up with actor, David Payne, to chat about his acting career, what is special about C.S. Lewis and why you should see this show.
  • I tried not to take it personally, but what my phone was telling me every other day is that I’m just about out of memory. Well, to be more specific my phone was in that condition, but I knew it wasn’t alone.
  • During one of the many times I attended the Gospel Music Festival in Nashville, I still remember Michael W. Smith on the stage of the famed Ryman Auditorium saying; “The best investment you can ever make is in the lives of other people.”
  • If you think your life sometime gets pretty messy… congratulations, you are normal. Last weekend my wife and I were watching a couple of messages that really connected with us by Andy Stanley.
  • If you ever need a place to warm up in the winter, might I suggest a trip to Texas? My wife Kathy and I just got back from a week around the Austin & San Antonio area. It was our first time there and we really had fun exploring. Let me play travel guide for a moment!
  • "If you want to influence another person, the way to start is to nurture them."
  • Happy New Year! We hope you are enjoying the top 50 songs of 2015. You can listen today 7pm and tomorrow at 7am and then again at noon. Thanks to our sponsor Homestead Fitness. 
  • We just got back home this week from Maui where Kathy & I celebrated our wedding anniversary. The timing was perfect. We were blessed with sunny skies and warm breezes; it was pretty easy to forget it was December!
    As you might know, Hawaii has a rather abundant supply of macadamia nuts. Love 'em! When we walked into Costco (yes, they have a warehouse in Maui, which made us feel right at home) there were palettes stacked high with a multitude of ways to consume that pleasant little nut. Some pretty creative ideas, too.

    “Hmmm” I wondered. It was then, I carefully began to search aisle by aisle, pallet by pallet, just to see if by some remarkable chance, an aspiring entrepreneur created the ultimate incentive for brushing one’s teeth three times a day. I’m sure I was there for hours, at least according to my wife.
    Lo and behold, after all that canvasing, just as I turned the corner past the papaya shampoos…
    The reality struck me. There was not one tube to be found of Macadamia Nut Toothpaste.  [Sigh]  That was sort of great news.  Well, perhaps I could be that guy that brings that nutty treat to the marketplace. Imagine…. all those dentists recommending “my nutty toothpaste”.
    So, you may wonder is there some kind of lesson or moral to this story? I wonder, too.
    This I can tell you this.  Today’s crazy idea can often be tomorrow’s bright idea. I’ve always been intrigued by the life work of inventors like Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison. They didn’t let the status quo hold them back from imagining what “could be”.
    There is a key element needed. The precious God-given gift you and I possess to a great degree is “freedom”.  May we cherish it, and fight for it when necessary. Our Creator takes great pleasure in His “little creators” like you & I.
  • Elections were just a couple of weeks ago in Canada, and tomorrow is Election Day in the US.
  • For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
  • It is quite probable that someone reading my words this moment is fighting an inner battle with a ghost from the past. The skeleton in one of yesterday's closets is beginning to rattle louder and louder. Putting adhesive tape around the closet and moving the bureau in front of the door does little to muffle the clattering bones. You wonder, possibly, "Who knows?" You think, probably, "I've had it...can't's over..."
