For every one who ever lives, there will be adjustments that will have to be made in the way we live. It could be moving out of the house for the first time, when you get married, the death of a spouse or loved one, finally just the two of you again in an “empty nest,” etc. Some adjustments can be much more difficult and painful than others, which can seem kind of routine. But as you look back over your life, what particular major adjustment(s) can you point out as having been pivotal for you? Let’s talk about this on Tuesday.
Today is the show for all urgent prayer requests…1-833-288-3986.
You don’t want to miss the Part 3 of this discussion on domestic violence…Please call in, 833-288-3986. Or tune in and listen as we learn together…
We had full phone lines on Wednesday’s Take 2 when we began the discussion on domestic violence. The real life stories that were shared by our callers proved to be inspirational, enlightening and quite moving. Unfortunately, we ran out of time and could not get to everyone. So, we decided early on in the broadcast to hold a Part 2. If you were one of the callers that was patiently waiting when the show ended, please consider calling back on Thursday and informing Ryan of that fact. We will do our very best to get you on the air so that you can share your story. 1-833-288-3986
According to an article on Wikipedia, between 960,000 and 3,000,000 incidents of domestic violence are reported each year, while many other incidents go unreported. It is estimated that more than ten million people experience domestic violence in just the alone U.S. each year. It can be experienced by men, women and children. Domestic violence may include verbal, emotional, economic, physical and sexual abuse. All forms of domestic abuse have one purpose: to gain and maintain control over the victim. Abusers use many tactics to exert this power over their victims. On Wednesday, we’re going to talk about this, and invite those who are comfortable doing so to call and share their experience of being a victim of domestic abuse, and, God-willing, finding a way out of that and into healing and peace. This is another topic that was suggested by a listener, in this case Stand Tall Carol in Wisconsin.

On Monday’s show, Jerry will be solo on the air – with you, that is! And, remember, you always drive the show with your takes, your insights, your wisdom, your lived experiences and your support and suggestions for other Take 2 Family members. Today’s topic was suggested by a listener who has never married. We’ve done shows on being single, but those have focused more on people who were still “looking for love” in the form of a spouse. But a growing percentage of people – including Jerry – seem to be content serving God while choosing not to marry. For each person who has remained unmarried, there could be a lot of factors that played into that decision. A bad example by your parents made you determined never to set yourself up for that. Perhaps your professional life was so busy and fulfilling that you never met the right person who could accommodate that challenging way of life. It could be that after making several unseuccessful runs at matrimony you simply decided to slow down a little and enjoy the unmarried life. We all learn from you inspiring takes, so be sure you share why you have remained unmarried up to this point in your life, and if you envision that ever changing.
