What If There Was A Radio Show With Positive, Uplifting News Stories?


There’s a lot of sad, depressing news in our world.  The media outlets including TV, radio, and even Facebook make sure we don’t miss any of it. None of it is inspiring, to say the least.

But what if there was a radio show with positive uplifting news stories?  A radio show that inspires and encourages you?  A radio show that brings you a breath of fresh air?  A radio show about people making a difference, people who inspire you?

Would you listen?

What Kind Of Stories?

A couple of months ago, on a sunny Sunday afternoon in Bainbridge, Ohio, 15 year old Samuel Sell did something really remarkable and inspiring.

For years, Dr. Jim Withers, of Pittsburgh, has been going out two or three times a week, intentionally looking rather scruffy, so he blended in with the homeless people.  What he’s been doing all these years is truly heartwarming.

James Vernon of Morton, Illinois is a 75 year old retiree.  He is a veteran. His recent heroic acts in Morton, Illinois literally saved lives, while risking his own.

A total stranger on a flight from from Kalamazoo, Michigan to Fort Rucker, Alabama, offered such an act of kindness to Rebekka traveling with her infant, they are now becoming best friends.

Cabbie Ed Benoit in Halifax, Nova Scotia picked up Nicole at the airport and was way more concerned about her well being than dropping her off at her hotel and moving on to his next fare.

  2. Hi Mike !! 🙂
    GOD BLESS YOU !!! I surely would love to hear some uplifting stories that encourage one and motivate to move forward regardless of some of the mostly depressing stories we do hear. I was thinking that perhaps I could make a difference in this world; after all we are just passing through and as we do, I am sure with God in Jesus Christ in us the Hope of Glory, we could surely make a positive difference every morning we wake up. We are completely outfitted for the journey through this world. And though it may seem like a long time, really it is not…life is short….every day counts!! It may be prayer, it may be “good morning” with a huge smile on our faces or it may be just sitting quietly listening to someone and God showing us what to do in that situation. So many many things with no time to waste. The life of a man/woman is so very important to God ! For a man/woman to receive eternal life today wold be remarkable; certainly something positive worth hearing !! <3 Tons of prayers for you Mike !!! Carol 🙂
