Take2

Take 2 with Jerry & Debbie is a unique live daily call-in show. Hosts Jerry Usher and Debbie Georgianni share from their hearts and personal experiences, focusing closely on their listeners and helping them become aware of their tremendous worth and potential. Taking a fresh look at personal, spiritual and cultural issues, their ultimate desire is to bring others to a realization of how much God loves them and has a beautiful plan for their lives.
Take2 - 07/02/2020 - Whom or What Are You Praying For?
On Thursday, Jerry and Debbie want to hear from you if you have ever been tested severely by life’s circumstances. This topic was suggested by a YouTube viewer named Mary. We’re using as our point of departure the incredible story of Job in the Old Testament, which describes Job as “blameless and upright, one who feared God, and turned away from evil.” Yet, God permitted all that Job had to come under Satan’s power (except Satan was forbidden to lay a hand on Job himself). Job – the innocent man who suffered so much – loses most of his family, his servants, his land and his livestock. For his patience and acceptance of suffering, without cursing God, Job is eventually given twice as much as he had before. Have you suffered tremendously? Were you able to gracefully accept those circumstances? Has your relationship with God been put to the test as a result? Let’s have another inspiring conversation on Thursday’s show.
Take2 - 07/01/2020 - Whom or What Are You Praying For?
The first live show of the month is dedicated to prayer.  Please call, text or email your prayer requests/intentions in to the show on Wednesday. We also would like you to share any and all praise reports with us as well.  Beginning July 1st, we will be asking those interested to join us in a dedicated 6 month prayer and fasting commitment for our nation.  We have always believed in the power of prayer!  Our world needs us to pray and fast now more than ever!  Let's prove we are a family and really devote ourselves to some intense prayer!  God will certainly hear us because we have showed up together! 1-833-288-3986
Take2 - 06/30/2020 - Are You Able to Vacation This Summer?
Many states have been reopening following the coronavirus pandemic shutdown. Yet, almost on cue, some states are reversing course and preparing for another shutdown. As Catholic Christians, we know that leisure is an important part of life, in order to get refreshed and renewed. But this summer is unlike any in recent memory. Have you already taken a vacation this year? If so, how was it similar, and how was it different, from years past. If you haven’t been on vacation yet, how are you planning in light of how things are still going with the pandemic? That’s our conversation on Tuesday’s show. Join us with your take at 833-288-3986.
Take2 - 06/29/2020 - What news has caught your eye lately?
We are all probably well aware of the news that reaches the mainstream media these days. But there are countless news stories, equally as important, that never get past the local arena. Some of these stories may circulate on social media but seem to die off rather quickly after a new event occurs. On Take 2, we want you to share with us those stories that have received little or no media coverage but may be of direct interest to us as Christians. Please call us at, 1-833-288-3986.
Take2 - 06/26/2020 - Doubting God's existence part 2

Take2 - 06/25/2020 - Doubting God's existence
Have you always believed in God? Were there times in your life, possibly during a personal crisis, that you doubted God’s existence? When we experience or witness a traumatic event, it may be very easy to start questioning our own belief in God. Our thoughts are part of the journey and God knows that. If you have struggled with doubt about God, please call in and let’s talk about it. 1-833-288-3986
Take2 - 06/24/2020 - Marriage, yesterday and today

We want to know what a sacramental marriage looks and feels like in today’s world. Do you feel the support of the community? Do you mostly hang out with other married couples, or do you still hold on to all your single friends? Maybe you have a mix of married and single friends. Are you preparing to start a family or do you have little ones already blessing your life? Are you a two-income family or does one spouse stay at home? Do you love being married or do you find it hard at times? Share your love story by calling, 1-833-288-3986.

We also want to know how your relationship has not only survived the test of time, but how it thrives amidst the destructive forces of the current culture. We want to talk about the sacramental grace in marriage and how that has helped you sustain a lasting commitment. Basically, we want to hear anything and everything you can share that will help us with our own marriages. Your wisdom and experience on this topic, just may help to save other marriages. 1-833-288-3986.
Take2 - 06/22/2020 - Pushed To The Limit
My cross is too heavy to bear! Have you ever felt that way in life? Too many things happening all at once and not enough strength to endure it all. Being pushed to the limit, mentally, emotionally and/or physically is what a lot of people are encountering right at this very moment. Yet, they carry on with life as best as they can. Being at the breaking point is not a healthy place to be. Let’s talk about things we can do spiritually to assist and sustain us through the stressful storms of life. Your words of wisdom on this subject will help others get through the tough times. 1-833-288-3986
Take2 - 06/19/2020 - A Guardian Angel Just For You

There is only one YOU, and there is a unique angel that was exactly matched just for YOU, by God Himself…Please listen to the entire show if you want to begin or even deepen your relationship with your personal angel. If you have a story to share about your guardian angel, please call in at 1-833-288-3986
Take2 - 06/18/2020 - What Beneficial Life Change Have You Mad
Sometimes, we can get stuck in a bit of a rut in life. Routines. The familiar. The same old same old. Sure, we can maintain this way of life for a long time. Or, we can examine all of this on occasion and make some changes that can really revolutionize our lives. Has there been a change you’ve made that has been not only beneficial, but has really made your life a lot better? Let’s talk about this on our next fifth anniversary week show on Thursday.
Take2 - 06/17/2020 - Do You Struggle With Guilt
On Wednesday, we will continue our fifth anniversary week of shows with another topic that you said was of particular interest during our recent survey. These are topics we’ve covered before, and this time we’ll revisit the issue of guilt. It’s something that can weigh us down, or that we can more or less place upon others. A healthy sense of guilt for our wrongs can be a good thing. But when it adversely affects our lives, then it’s time to shed it and move on. Please join us for what promises to be an insightful conversation.
Take2 - 06/16/2020 - Do You Struggle With Guilt
Our fifth anniversary week continues on Tuesday with phone lines open for you to bring up anything you’d like. Your calls and takes have driven the show since its inception, and this show will be no different. Hope to hear from you!
Take2 - 06/15/2020 - Loved Ones Who Left the Faith
Monday is the start of our fifth anniversary week! Many of you answered our short survey over the last month or so, asking for the topics you would like us to cover this week. Leading off is a discussion of loved ones who left the faith. Sadly, that remains the number one prayer intention of faithful Catholics. Does that description fit someone in your life? If so, let’s revisit that important topic together on Monday.
