Sounds of silence

I have forgotten what silence sounds like. Apparently, it’s quite rare today. A few days ago, I spent the entire day in the Dallas airport. No, there was no weather issue. It was beautiful in Dallas that day. Mine was a simple problem. I accidentally bought the wrong return flight back to Iowa when scheduling my return from a…

Great expectations

Expectations are a funny thing. When the weather doesn’t cooperate with our plans, it can be really frustrating. I am seeing a lot of weather-induced frustration this Spring. People are frustrated that frosty temperatures and snow are keeping us indoors for a few more weekends than usual. So we “plow through”…

Think spring!

Though spring is slow in coming, these stories of changed lives are sure to warm your heart. It’s the real testimonies of real people that remind us why we do, what we do. Enjoy! Christian:   After a really disappointing turn with a prospective job, songs on Life 101.9 shed some light amid my bitterness and helped me to more quickly…

Faded glory

This week we celebrate an event of monumental importance. Hint: It’s not the Final Four nor does it have anything to do with marshmallow chicks and chocolate bunnies. Of course. This weekend we celebrate Easter – the real one – that happened over 2000 years ago. But as I think about it, I’m starting to wonder…

Welcome back Deb

The sign said it all. “Welcome back Deb.” It was a good day! Spent the lunch hour enjoying pizza, cake and welcoming our friend and colleague Deb Pugh who rejoined us after a year long battle with cancer.  There’s nothing like beholding the smiling face of a friend after a long absence. Here she is with thankful…

No one was expecting it

Some said it would never happen but it did! In this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, the unexpected happened. A sixteen seeded team beat a top seed. For you non-basketball readers, that’s like the proverbial bumblebee who supposedly cannot fly, surprises everyone and does anyway! Not only that, the…

Lemonade from lemons

I remember the song taken from Isaiah that we used to sing in church. “He gave me beauty for ashes. The oil of joy for mourning. The garment of praise for a spirit of heaviness…” I’ve seen the truth of that song play out time, and again in my life and the lives of so many of my believing friends. When God makes lemonade…

March Madness is not a laughing matter

March Madness is here. The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It’s when 68 of the best teams in the country go head to head in a single elimination tournament leaving just one as national champion.  Watching March Madness used to be my favorite thing to do in an easy chair with a mug of diet root beer. However, believe it…

Leaving a legacy

A truly lasting legacy is only found in the footprint of one with genuine humility and razor-like focus. Such was the life of Rev. Billy Graham, who went home to be with Jesus on February 21st at the age of 99. Most will know him as the greatest evangelist of our time but he was also the second president of Northwestern College and the visionary…

Compassion for the poor is something we all need

As our listeners grow in their compassion by responding to the Matthew 25 command of Jesus, I find myself dreaming big of what might be possible as we put the needs of others ahead of our own. You’re familiar of the Matthew 25 passage, aren’t you? Check it out if you need a refresher. One commentator writing about this oft…
