Take2 - 03/25/2020 - Following In Your Parents' Footsteps
Many people feel drawn to forge a career in the same field or industry as one or both of their parents. Do you fit into this category? If so, share with us why you made that choice on Wednesday’s show. Was it because you grew up around someone in that field? Were you pressured to follow in the footsteps of a parent? Or did your parents encourage you to go into whatever career you thought was the best fit? Are there any fields where this happens more than others, like attorneys, teachers, doctors and nurses, etc.? Let’s explore this on Wednesday.
Take2 - 03/24/2020 - Are You Grateful For Your Faith?
Faith is a gift. Why it’s not received and lived by all people is a deep mystery. “There but for the grace of God go I” is a phrase we’ve all likely heard many times during our lives. When we really, really think about what we’ve been given, and that it’s possible that countless other people don’t have faith, it’s mind boggling. Living out our faith in total dependance on God is the path to heaven. That’s how serious this matter is. On Tuesday, join Jerry and Debbie and share how very grateful you are for the gift of your faith.
Take2 - 03/23/2020 - Jobless due to the Pandemic?
Has the Current Health Pandemic Affected Your Job? It seems the information about the COVID-19 virus changes hour by hour. It’s impacting the globe like few situations throughout history have. While we pray and beseech the Lord to guide those who are leading the charge to develop effective vaccines and treatments, everyday life has to go on. And, sadly, for many that means their employment situation has been impacted – if not wiped out – by the reactions to the pandemic. Have you lost your job recently in its aftermath? Perhaps your employment has been scaled back? If you fall into any such categories, call Jerry and Debbie on Monday and let’s talk about it. If nothing else, it can spark worldwide prayer for your present circumstances. Talk to you on Monday!

Take2 - 03/18/2020 - Change of Plans (Unscripted!)
Change of Plans – Unscripted There has been a change in plans for the rest of the week. The coronavirus and the impact it’s having on every aspect of our lives led us to decide to give you the opportunity to call and share anything you’d like for the rest of the week. It’s known as our Unscripted shows, which we usually feature once a month. But we know there’s a lot on your minds and in your hearts that you’d like to discuss. Therefore, bring whatever take you want on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Take2 - 03/17/2020 - Surprised By Faith!
As we go through life, we experience many surprises. One of the more pleasant surprises is somehow discovering that a family member, neighbor, co-worker, gym buddy - anyone you've had a relationship with - is a devout Christian, and you hadn't known that before. It could be someone you've known since high school, but never talked about the faith with before. Maybe it's someone who has converted to Christ, and you weren't aware of that. This type of discovery can unlock beautiful new - or deeper - relationships with these individuals. On Tuesday, call and share if this is something you have experienced.
Take2 - 03/16/2020 - God, I Need You Now!
Join us for the March edition of one of our prayer request shows!
Take2 - 03/12/2020 - Corona Virus II
Coronavirus, Part II How much has changed in just the last twenty four hours! The Archbishop of Seattle has ordered the indefinite suspension of all public Masses. The National Basketball Association has suspended its season. Much more is ahead. We’re obviously in for a very bumpy ride. On Thursday, Jerry and Debbie will field more of your calls about how your life has been impacted by this latest health crisis, how you’re trying to maintain some semblance of “normalcy” in your life, how much you’re doing to stay abreast of developments and keep yourself and your loved ones safe, and more. Most of all, what are you doing to pray and sacrifice for the world at this critical moment? Call with your takes on Thursday.
Take2 - 03/11/2020 - Corona Virus - Fact or Fiction?
Coronavirus: Fact vs. Fiction On the heels of our three-part series on how often you think of Heaven, on Wednesday we invite you to tune in and call in with your thoughts on the coronavirus threat. Are you convinced that there’s a serious threat? Or do you think it’s being blown out of proportion? What are you doing to ensure that you and your family are safe from infection? What do you think about the hysteria, closures, shut downs and other effects of this latest virus? We know this will be a lively and engaging conversation.
Take2 - 03/10/2020 - How Often Do You Consider Heaven? (III)
How Often Do You Think of Heaven: Part III Once again we had too many people, and too little time, on Monday’s show. So, we’re offering this topic one more time on Tuesday. It’s rare when we do a three-part series on anything. But you’ve asked for it, and we’ll deliver on Tuesday. If you have called but haven’t gotten on the air Friday or Monday, let Ryan know, and we’ll bump you up the list of callers.
Take2 - 03/07/2020 - How Often Do You Consider Heaven? (II)
How Often Do You Think of Heaven: Part II Friday’s program was another busy one, with the clock running out before we could get to several callers. If you were on the line at the end of the show, please call again on Monday, and tell Ryan you were holding on Friday. He will put you at the front of the line, since we’re doing a part two of this impactful topic.
Take2 - 03/06/2020 - How Often Do You Think of Heaven?
How Often Do You Think About Heaven? Our minds ponder many things each day. Heaven may not be top of mind for you when you’re stuck in rush hour traffic. Nor when you’re up to your elbows in dirty diapers. Or, maybe those are precisely the times you raise your mind to heaven, for whatever reason. On Friday, Jerry and Debbie want to hear from you about how often you think of heaven, and what those thoughts are predominantly about. God-willing, they center on the fact that one day, by His grace, we will all be in glory together. Let’s end the week with another dynamic conversation!
