Who Listens to This Show?
My average listener considers themselves a Christian. They are looking for biblical hope and help for how to address a particular problem in their life, or in the life of their loved one. They are not content with the answers the world has to offer. My listener is looking for a compassionate voice that will speak God's truth in love, while directing them to take courage and trust God for their future—for a friendly voice who has traveled the lonely road of painful brokenness while being carried along by Heaven's comforts. In short, my listener yearns for Christ's hope and help to face the challenges of today while learning to trust in God for their tomorrow.
