SPIRIT 105.3 DJ - Weekends
  • Where do you cry? Have you ever needed to cry and you can't find a safe place to do it because you don't want to upset your kids or anyone else? That's Selena's story. She's a single mom with three boys and a bunch of part-time jobs just trying to make ends meet. Sometimes she feels like she's all alone, and that's when God reaches in. Selena cries in her car. I get that. Then there's that moment when the right song comes on. Hillary Scott singing,

  • The taste of Ivory soap.  The mouth washing must have worked because I don’t remember what I said decades ago to deserve it, but since then I’ve tried hard to put more thought into what I’m about to say.  While growing up, my Mom would often remind me to, “THINK, before you speak.” In fact, we even had a framed needle point hanging on our kitchen wall with the following:

  • Have you been enjoying the Olympic games in Rio? Along with the competition, I love watching all the story lines develop. Especially the back stories of some of the athletes. The story that has moved me and maybe you too, is the story surrounding the...

  • Be still!  I remember being reminded of that when I was a kid.  I find myself sternly whispering that to my boys today.  Hush!  Be quiet!  Why is it I think making them be quiet is going to make my life easier and more relaxed?

  • My wife and I were busy raking up the yard last weekend, when a delivery truck pulled up next to us. The driver rolled down his window and greeted us with a question rather than a box. “Hey, what kind of tree is that?” Oh, “a tulip tree,” my wife answers. “I’ve been driving by it a few days now and it’s really pretty,” he said.  We chatted a bit longer and then off he went.

  • I was encouraged by something my son said the other day and I want to share it with you, too.  My son Hayden got braces recently. He was so excited.  I don’t recall ever seeing someone excited to get braces.  He was excited even knowing that there would be discomfort that came along with them.  Curious as to why he was so excited, Hayden said, “Because I know how good my smile is going to look when the braces come off”.

  • Gift giving and shopping lists have been top of mind at our house since Black Friday and maybe at your house, too. In fact, I have noticed my boys wish list’s on the refrigerator have been expanding ever since. Come to find out the gifts my boys want are similar to their friends lists. I get that…

  • Do you recall a time recently when you felt out of control, defeated and afraid? I came upon a story the other day that was such a great reminder to me of where I need to be in those challenging times and I wanted to share it with you, too.

  • For every step I took into the canyon, I knew it would be two steps up out of the canyon, but it didn’t matter. We reached the twenty foot tall kiln and it was so cool! After a snack, we headed back out the 2.7 mile trail. The boys took off, of course, while I set out on what was to be a good work out. God help me get back to the car, I prayed. A few minutes into the ascent

  • Listening to SPIRIT 105.3…the encouragement and hope that is heard in the music, can be just what your heart ordered.  It amazes me to hear from listeners who want to know the title of a song, or the artist who sang it, because it’s just what they needed to hear at that time.

  • But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you—see that you excel in this act of grace also.
