Who’s Your “Hidden” Hero?

Share with the world that special person, that unsung hero, you would like to recognize and praise on Friday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. 1-833-288-3986

Turning Them Over to God

We all know and love people we’d like to see walking more closely with God and the Church. We do all we can to help them, but often to no avail. Sometimes we run out of ideas or energy, or simply realize that God alone can truly help them. Who’s someone in your life you’ve had to entrust completely to God? We’re sure you’ll have a take on Thursday’s show, so be sure to join us.

Do You Have Difficulty Forgiving Yourself?

We’ve discussed this topic before, and it elicited a lot of very poignant and impactful takes on the program. On Wednesday, Jerry and Debbie invite you to once again pray about calling in and sharing whether or not you find it hard to forgive yourself. This can be very damaging to one’s overall personal growth, as it keeps us “stuck” in our past and our mistakes. It’s also a subtle form of pride, as we’re saying that we welcome the forgiveness of God, the Church and other people, but cannot – for whatever reason – forgive ourselves. Let’s dive deeply into this conversation on Wednesday.

If They Could See Me Now

Conversion is a lifelong process. As we make that all-important journey, we change many of our behaviors, friends, habits, hangouts, etc. As you look back at your life before you took your faith seriously, would the people you knew and spent time with recognize you now? Sometimes we change so much – hopefully for the better – that we end up losing many of those friends and things we used to do. If you have some thoughts on this, be sure to call and share them with Jerry and Debbie, and the world, on Tuesday’s show.

The Power of Prayer!


Debbie and Jerry ask listeners whom they are praying for and take #prayer requests. These are some of the prayer needs on today’s Take 2: prayers for the conversion of my Uncle, for four people in my life suffering from cancer, my wife just took our 8 kids, I need a #miracle for our daughter, and my son needs encouragement and help in finding a job.

Marriage Troubles

T2--July 30-marriage

Some marriages have very minor issues, while other marriages deal with major situations that can cripple the relationship. Often times, we are reluctant to share publicly our relationship issues for fear that we will judged by others.  Marriage is tough enough these days and we certainly don’t need to add any outside criticism of our decisions in life.  So, we suffer in silence and the marriage continues to deteriorate.  Then, just before the dreaded divorce word is introduced, we may make an attempt to save the relationship.  Yet sadly, it may be too late at that point.  On Thursday, we will be discussing the problems in relationships and where we can find help/support for our marriages.  Call us, if you would like to share your story. 1-833-288-3986

Have You Been “Martha” to Others?

In the Bible, Martha, the sister of Mary and Lazarus, often gets a bum rap because Jesus said Mary chose the better part, i.e. sitting at Jesus’ feet in a more contemplative manner. But that doesn’t mean Martha’s role is unimportant. There are many times we are called to serve others, and to serve Jesus in others. If it weren’t for people who take an active role in serving the needs of others, much suffering would proliferate throughout the world. On Wednesday, join Jerry and Debbie and share how you have played the part of Martha in your community. This isn’t about bragging on ourselves. Rather, it’s an opportunity to inspire others to take a more active role in serving others.

Shaking Off Negativity and Thriving

An unfortunate part of everyone’s life is that we are often subject to criticism and negativity. Healthy and constructive criticism can be very helpful. But some people find it difficult not to unleash negativity, even on those they love. These experiences can be very powerful forces in our lives, as they go a long way toward shaping what we think of ourselves, and how we live our lives. Happily, we are very resilient beings, and can even take unjust insults and negativity and turn them into positives by allowing them to drive us to become better persons. Have you done this in your own life? Be part of the conversation on Tuesday’s show.

Self-Care During the Pandemic

The COVID pandemic has taken its toll on everyone. Whether you have had the virus yourself, know someone who has (or does), or have cared for someone during the crisis. Virtually all of us are feeling beat up by the whole thing. Our question for you on Monday will be, “How are you taking care of yourself?” Are you making sure you get enough sleep and rest? Eating healthy? Finding time for exercise and recreation? If we don’t do these things, we run the risk of eventually being of no help to anyone. Join us as we start next week off with this discussion.
