Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

"How has local Christian radio made a difference in your life?" was the question we asked in our recent "Share Your Story" contest. Here are a few more excerpts from the winning entries.


I had been involved with Jehovah's Witnesses for a few years and was VERY confused in my theology of who Jesus Christ was. I had been struggling with knowing and believing that Jesus is God for about 5 or 6 months when a friend suggested I listen to WMBI. So I began to listen every day on my drive to school. Insight for Living played every day during my drive, and after a few weeks, Chuck Swindoll began a series on Hebrews. And when I heard him read from Hebrews 1, namely vs 6 ("And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, 'Let all God's angels worship him.'"), the switch flipped. I saw, I knew, and I believed that Jesus is God. It was an awesome moment in my car!

Fourteen years ago, a long-time friend turned against me. She filed charges against me. On a Saturday night, I was preparing the meal for my daughter's birthday. Our Moody station is WCRF-FM, 103.3, in Cleveland, Ohio. At 9:00 p.m., Ron Hutchcraft's program came on and at 10:00 p.m. Dawson McAlister's program followed. While I was working in the kitchen, I listened for two hours to two programs, back to back, that were about the need to forgive. By the time I went to bed, I knew I had to forgive her for her accusations.

When I became a Christian I feasted on the music and teaching on WZZD in Philadelphia. It was my daily companion and helped me get rooted and grounded. In 1984, the Lord blessed me with my first on air position and I'm blessed to have served in Christian radio ever since. It's great to be able to encourage, exhort and edify the body on a daily basis!

Sometimes in life, your darkest moments aren’t the ones filled with pain, anguish, loss or depravity, but rather the ones filled with self-doubt, mediocrity, and depression. For nearly ten years I have not been to church on a regular basis. Christians had hurt me. They were my enemy.

I began working at Sam’s Club. I was stuck there for three years. I never got a raise, a promotion, nothing. I stood by and watched as more and more unqualified people got promoted and moved up. I had to live at home with my parents. I barely made enough money to survive. I was exactly where God needed me to be.

One day, while I was driving to work, I accidentally turned on the Christian radio and happened to come across Chuck Swindoll and Insight for Living. I listened to his message. Some good wisdom but nothing fancy. Next morning, I listened to it again.

For the next 7 months, I listened to Pastor Chuck on my 30 minute commute to the blackness I called Sam’s Club. It was my only light. I didn’t have the guts to quit because I didn’t know where to go and didn’t believe that anyone would hire me. So I listened and laughed every time I drove down the freeway. It got me through the day. One day though, one of his messages hit straight home on where I needed to do in my daily life.

I wrote these down as I drove:

God is Sovereign
Think Ahead
Don’t Allow Your Panic to Eclipse Trust in Him
Wait on the Lord

Every time I tried to be in control, I got myself into trouble. I didn’t ask for God to be in control. I didn’t plan ahead because I never asked God what He wanted me to do.

You want to know how my story ends or how it turns out. Ha! I can tell you this. I have peace, I have direction, I have forgiveness, and I have God. In the end, isn’t that the only thing that really matters?
