I’ve been doing a 1 hour weekend radio show for about a year – it’s a secular show, but, it’s all about kindness: stories of good people doing good things for other people. It’s a break from the sad and depressing news we hear every day, with inspiring stories you rarely hear about.

Each Wednesday, there’s a podcast with all the segments of the past weekend radio show, without commercials and local news. In today’s podcast, you’ll hear stories about how someone helped a very depressed teen, what a judge did in his backyard, and what a very secret society in Kansas is doing.

Today is the National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

This Saturday evening I have the privilege of speaking at The Phoenix Rescue Mission.  I’ve been doing this for many years.  I love it!  I always try to bring a message of hope and encouragement.

Many thanks to the Mission for allowing this opportunity to share the Good News.

The weekend of the 16th I will be teaching at the Annual Winter Advance, once again at, Camp MiVoden on Hayden Lake, in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
