Cheering with God’s perspective

Yesterday morning, I gazed at the Russian skating team on the podium singing jubilantly at the playing of their national anthem and I teared up for just a moment. That has never happened before. Oh, I’ve gotten teary eyed a thousand times through the years when American Olympians have stood there singing our beloved Star Spangled…

Play to win

Are you ready for the big game? I’m not talking about the Super Bowl. I mean the game of Life for a child of God. The game begins once we first believe and resolve to follow him all of our days. But let’s never forget that believing is kind of like the opening kickoff. To stay effective for the duration of the game, it requires daily training,…

The clean comedian

Sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Show me a comedian who makes a living making us laugh while keeping it clean and I’ll show you someone who’s really funny. The fact is, there are hundreds of comedians who build their careers around inappropriate “one liners” because they know that there are…

Life on the road

Are you enjoying Life on the road? I know that many of our listeners are. With Life 101.9 sister stations in Des Moines, Kansas City, Sioux Falls, Fargo, Madison and St. Paul, they find music that’s uplifting in nearly every direction. Recently, I crashed a staff meeting at the Life 107.1 studios in West Des Moines and the team…

Thrilling

There’s nothing more thrilling than starting off the year with stories of changed lives! Enjoy! Angie:  I have been through so much the past 5-10 years, from going through relationship issues, my parents’ divorce, to personal issues in general. I still deal with many issues day in and day out, but who doesn’t?  I know…

A resolution worth keeping

I am convinced that gifts that remind us of the giver are the greatest gifts of all. Take this coffee cup for instance. This gift was given to me for Christmas. It has pictures of my four wonderful grandchildren on it. I am convinced that it will make me smile every time I use it. To quote an old cliche, “It’s the gift that keeps…

Listener becomes an angel!

I love hearing stories of how our listeners look for ways to give back as an expression of love and thankfulness to the Lord for his many blessings. Enjoy! “Let me just start out saying my family and I love Life 101.9! It’s so uplifting and we don’t have to worry about our kids hearing things we don’t want them to hear.…

Just Mark being Mark

Last weekend, Mark Schultz moved Eastern Iowa with classics like “Letters from War”, “He’s My Son” and others mingled in with a generous selection of well known Christmas carols inviting audience participation throughout. We expected that Mark unplugged would provide an intimate evening…

Fun facts about “Joy to the World”

Did you know… That the Christmas Carol “Joy to the World” was originally a poem…not a song?  It was written by Isaac Watts in 1719. That it took over a century to be made into a song? It was eventually  set to music by Lowell Mason in 1839. That the musical version was never intended to be a Christmas song at…

Food for thought

Say I’m looking for a tasty hot spiced cider recipe and maybe a good Christmas cookie recipe or two.  Got any ideas?  I’ll be serving them to a very special person so I want a really want to make a good impression.  I’d appreciate your response with any ideas that you have. Sounds like I’m serving royalty, doesn’t it?  Well, my guest…

Vacation time is Grandpa time

I remember when taking a vacation in the summer meant riding roller coasters, water skiing, binge watching movies every night, eating anything I wanted and doing it again the next day until Dad said it was time to leave and go home.
