Has Spring, Sprung?

Probably depends on who you ask. For some, the rise of the crocus or the budding of the rhododendron has signaled the much anticipated arrival of Spring. For others, the thermometer hasn’t reached that special temperature of “just right”! Spring is a time of re-birth and fresh starts. Read more...

In the Footsteps of Paul

I remember two years ago when I was asked to host a tour of PRAISE listeners to go to Israel… what a dream come true. A life-changing experience for me for sure… I have made some incredible memories and some wonderful lifelong friendships. And now, an opportunity to go on “Paul’s Journey” this Fall. Read more...

Becoming Fearless

I had already chosen the word “FEARLESS” to be MY word for the New Year that I would focus on. But after the “Dare to Be” event last Sunday with Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill, I was convinced Read more...

The Joy of the Lord

Well, Christmas and New Years are a thing of the past. I hope yours was as full of joy as mine was. This season really got me thinking about the Joy of the Lord and how the Bible says "our strength". Ever wonder why our own joy isn't mentioned as our strength? My celebration of the happiest time of the year, while very joyful, kept intersecting with sadness. Read more...

Another Bump In The Road of Life

Bumps in the road of life…we all have them. Isn’t it funny how we rarely see them coming at us even though we know they will sooner than later Read more...

Inadequate

Have you ever felt ‘not good enough’ or ‘not pretty enough’ or even ‘not worthy enough?' I know I have had those feelings of inadequacy at times. Read more...

In A Room Full of 6-Year-Olds

Well, summer is over, kids are back in school, and until next June my wife and I are returning to this thing we call a “normal routine.” You see Sharon is a first grade teacher... Read more...

Our "Summer Family" Beach Day

Ahhh! Summer’s end approaches! For my family that means… VACATION! It’s a tradition in our family to spend it at Cannon Beach Conference Center in Oregon... Read more...

We Celebrate Freedom

Wanna know one of my simple joys? Flipping the calendar in the studio to a new month. WOW! It’s hard to believe it is already July. Can’t beat the beautiful weather over the long Canada Day weekend and it looks like it will continue through the Fourth of July.

We are so fortunate to be able to celebrate FREEDOM across the United States and Canada! So many FREEDOMS… even when some of those freedoms do not line up with God’s principles, like the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent rejection of the Defense of Marriage Act. Do you ever, like me, get discouraged and frustrated with the direction of the leadership in our countries are moving? Are you ever fearful for our future and the futures our children and grandchildren? I have been, but I draw great comfort in knowing that no matter what happens OUR God is in control! He has a plan and is fulfilling that plan.

As you continue having a ‘blast’ celebrating this week, be encouraged in our future! “Many are the plans of man. But it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” Proverbs 19:21

Happy Holidays! Read more...

Hide the Camels

As you read this, I’m busy getting caught up on work and packing for the PRAISE May Israel Trip. Forty-eight PRAISE listeners will be doing the same, as we eagerly anticipate being where Jesus walked, taught and lived.

Somehow, this trip has me MORE excited than the first one. I think what I’ve already seen and experienced makes that true. I can’t wait to share that joy and emotion with the many others going for the first time. Have you experienced that in your own life? Perhaps you’re excited for your kids or friends knowing that what they’re heading out to do will be life-changing. I can’t wait to see the faces of others traveling with me when they see Jerusalem for the first time, walk the Via Dolorosa or step into the River Jordan.

I think God feels that way about us. He already knows how wonderful our future will be and all that it entails. He wants us to savor every single bit of it! I picture Him smiling and celebrating WITH me as I enjoy all His blessings and adventures in my life. Would you please pray for our trip that we’ll be safe and soak in God’s Holy Land? Stay tuned to the Morning Show and check our Facebook page regularly. You’ll feel like you’re there with us and maybe, just maybe, you’ll join us for our next trip in October!

Shalom!
