Always Here For You

That moment… when someone says something that causes you to take notice, simply because their words could be yours… “The last couple years have been pretty difficult for me…” A SPIRIT listener started his call to me that way. Read more...

Confession Time

Confession time… I’m not much of a football fan. American football that is… For me, I am way more into the game that the rest of the world calls football (soccer). I follow my favorite teams and am excited about the upcoming World Cup. Read more...

A Scene I Will Not Soon Forget

Even my most carefully chosen words couldn’t begin to describe the helplessness I feel as the world’s news reporters show the images and describe the scene in the aftermath of that storm. I want to be there to do something - maybe just help someone look for a loved one, put up a tarp, anything… but that’s not possible. Read more...

The Power of SPIRIT

Each morning, I travel the long I-5 corridor from north of Arlington to Shoreline. One of my favorite things about my commute is watching other drivers to see if they’re singing along to SPIRIT 105.3!

I can’t help but think back to the mid 70’s, sitting with my friends at the Arcada Theater in St Charles Il., watching Star Wars for the 1st time. Even though the special effects were amazing, the real power of that film was and still is in the story. Luke Skywalker and his comrades conquer evil and save the day. The lightsaber duels, X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter scenes, and amazing THX sound were all simply enhancements to a fantastic story. Read more...

New and Improved

There’s a word you’ll hear thrown around a lot in this first month of 2013… ‘NEW’. Phrases like “Happy NEW year, NEW for 2013, a NEW season” abound. Read more...

  • For Everything There’s a Time

    While this moment in time seems a relatively good season for my family, I also see many others within the sphere of my life in a season of struggle with difficult challenges. My heart sinks when people suffer with a broken relationship, life threatening illness, or the loss of a loved one. Read More
