  • As I'm typing this for you to read, I'm listening to David Crowder sing "How He Loves". I'm not sure if I would have ever heard this song - or would even know who David Crowder is - if not for Christian radio. It seems God smiled on us the day He revealed radio to Marconi. He knew you and I would sing "Oh How He Loves"

  • No one had EVER told me what my drama coach was telling me. Ever. In an improv level one class in 2004, the teacher was telling me that it's okay to be ugly. I remember the words sinking in and settling down into my soul My whole life, either intentionally or implied, the messages I had gotten where pretty similar: Do your best. Look your best. Wear a little make-up when you go out. Lose 10 pounds. Stand up straight. Be nice. Strive for perfection... and only then you will be good and loved. No one had ever said, "Lisa, it's okay to be ugly."

  • Local Hero #7 - Nahum Ip

    He is my dad, and a paramedic. That already is kind of "behind the scenes" because no one really notices the paramedics, but the police and firefighters tend to get noticed more. While everyone is looking at the firefighters/police (not to put them down) paramedics are doing quite a bit more work and save lives on a daily basis. He has told us many stories of his job, and while he is with casualties, he uses that opportunity to tell them about Jesus. Throughout his work he has brought many people to Christ just by praying with them at the hospital and continuing to pray for them at home. He not only saves their earthly life, but aids in their spiritual life. Read More
