Honor the teacher that shaped your life.

WE ARE LIVE: Take 2  travels to Anaheim, California to broadcast LIVE from the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress.


Almost all of us can recall that special teacher that left a positive impact in our lives.  Saturday’s LIVE broadcast is the perfect show for you to honor that special person in your life.  Some teachers, coaches, scout leaders have literally changed the future of young lives just by their devotion to those that they lead.  An encouraging comment, a show of concern may be just what a student needs to feel empowered to explore their God-given gifts and talents.  Teachers are invaluable and this show will focus on their important role in the formation of our youth.  Call 1-800-585-9396 to be on the show.

Mixed-Race Marriages and Families

On Thursday, Jerry and Debbie welcome your takes on being part of a mixed-race marriage or family. The Church has always celebrated the universality of her members and the entire human race. People of different races and cultures have a tremendous amount of gifts to offer to one another. This is particularly true when they come together in the same family. If you have experience with this, be sure to call with your take. We look forward to hearing from you! (P.S. The lower picture is Jerry’s sister, Mary, and her husband, Larry. Sincere thanks to all of you who have been praying for her. She passed away on February 7, and her funeral was February 15).




Do You Appreciate Classical Music?

There are many different forms of music. All good forms require talent and synchronization among performers. But when listening to classical music, typically performed by orchestras or symphonies, it’s hard to imagine a collection of musical artists performing on the same page like they do, with such precision. And there’s a certain beauty in classical music that is absent in some other forms of music. Of course, the Church has been blessed by countless sacred compositions over the centuries. Let’s talk about this, and how we can all perhaps grow in our appreciation of classical music.



Encouraging a Struggling Child

We had a great conversation on Monday about how to encourage and accommodate a child who exhibits the capacity to excel at academics, music, sports or any other human endeavor. Lots of great takes were shared by our listeners. We also realize that some kids need a little extra prodding or encouragement to fulfill their God-given potential. That’s what we’ll talk about on Tuesday’s show. If you’re the parent, family member, teacher, neighbor or friend of a child who struggles to reach his or her potential, let’s talk about ways that they can be encouraged, motivated and helped in any way to achieve the heights God wants for them.

Are You the Parent of a Child Prodigy?

Every age has seen children who excel at virtually everything they do, to the point of surpassing most of their peers in academics, music, sports and a variety of other pursuits. That sometimes presents a challenge to parents and others involved in the formation of those children to find ways to keep them stimulated and interested in their particular activities, and to best facilitate their exceptional abilities. If you have (or had) such a son or daughter, share your story with Jerry and Debbie on Monday’s show. As always, what you impart to our listeners could well be just what a parent somewhere needs to hear in order to help them with their own child prodigy.

Feeding Your Faith

It’s one thing to gather with people you know and share beliefs with on Sunday. Maybe you even attend a prayer meeting or Bible study during the week. But our faith is meant to be lived 24/7. That means we should seek out opportunities to grow in our relationship with God whenever they present themselves. Are you part of a mom’s group? A men’s fellowship? Do you go to parish missions, retreats, conferences, etc.? Where is it that you “feed your faith” outside of weekend worship? Join Jerry and Debbie and share your inspiring take on this topic on Friday.
