Today In The Word

Jon Gauger

A Christian Working Woman

Mary Whelchel

Mary says, “What I want to emphasize is that God uses unqualified and unworthy people who are just willing to obey. He wants to use those who are willing to stick their necks out and go to some place that may not be comfortable but simply follow his leading. If God gives you a passion, don’t underestimate what God can do for you and through you.”


A Different Perspective

Bernie Dymet

Bernie says, “My heart is to open the Bible in a way that it makes sense to you and to me in the middle of the stuff we’re going through. Because it’s in that place that Jesus wants to meet us. It’s in that place that He wants us to discover the awesome power of the Holy Spirit to radically transform our lives.”

A Second Look At Sports

Dwight Allen

Dwight says, “The unique feature about A Second Look at Sports is that I, as host of the program, go to the games in the NBA, NFL, MLB, high school-college, and get the interviews in a one-on-one setting. We also get the “sound effects” of the game itself and then produce the program. We want to make you feel, as the listener, that you are sitting in the box seats during the game and in the club house after the game as we do the personal interviews. We always end each program with an invitation based on John 3:16 because that is the sign that is held up at so many sporting events.”

Radio Theatre

Focus On The Family

Radio Theatre isn’t just storytelling or a book on tape. It’s an audio movie that plays on the biggest screen of all … your imagination.


Lamplighter Theatre

“Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading. The character traits children assimilate during their formative years are the foundation from which a life of faith in God is built. Inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books demonstrate that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood. Perseverance, courage, hope, loyalty, humility—these are the qualities to emulate, these are the traits to pursue. Though life isn’t always fair, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.” – Mark Hamby



Pacific Garden Mission

Real people…real life stories…stirring, dramatic accounts of hopelessness, and the hope that changes everything. “UNSHACKLED!” the award-winning radio drama from Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago, grips the heart with compelling and relevant stories of transformed lives.
Without Jesus Christ, we are all shackled by sin — by our wrong choices, disobedience and selfish motives. But God is at work, and the power of Christ sets us free of our bondage. We are… “UNSHACKLED!
