Be Still

April 25th, 2016 It was a glorious day. The sun gently warmed the calm air. A black swan drifted lazily in the water. A tranquil breeze unfurled the flag proudly stationed on top of a turret. The still moat reflected the shape of the stone castle above it. We like comfort. We like knowing we’re…

Spring Cleaning

April 18th, 2016 Spring cleaning. Most people groan before diving into such a chore. Others detest it so intensely that they procrastinate doing it until the following year. Some ignore the idea of it altogether. Not me. I love to organize, sort, and clean. It brings me satisfaction to purge things I don’t need from…

Bon Voyage

April 11th, 2016 On April 15, 1912, disaster struck. The largest passenger liner of that era foundered after striking an iceberg, sinking to a cold and watery grave. The ship said to be “unsinkable” turned out to be just the opposite. Due to poor decision-making and planning, there weren’t enough lifeboats on board for all…

April Showers

April 4th, 2016 Here in California where Family Radio’s headquarters is located, we’ve been hurting for rain the past several years. Our lakes have all but dried up, our mountains are barren, the farmers are having trouble growing crops, and some of the tap water tastes the slightest bit like dirt. Even the seasons, mild…

Risen-Pt.2

He is Risen, Part 2

All was still. Light crept over the horizon. Sabbath had finally drawn to a close. Two women tiptoed through deserted streets into a garden outside the city wall. The weekend hours had passed slowly as they waited to anoint their beloved Rabbi’s body with spices where He lay in the garden tomb. Suddenly, an earthquake…

These events fulfilled many prophecies, and affected many real people who lived through them. This blog article explores the circumstances surrounding the crucifixion as seen through the eyes of Mary Magdalene. Night had fallen. Everything was…

Leaving a Legacy

A person’s last words before he or she dies are monumental. As Joshua neared death at the age of 110, he spoke to the Israelites. Having led them for the last 28 years, Joshua still gave them direction even at the end of his life. His advice? “…choose you this day whom ye will serve…but…

Workmanship

God’s Workmanship

March 7, 2016 In 1994, the Craft & Hobby association deemed March “National Craft Month.” Their intent was to help others rediscover the joy of crafting and its many benefits.1 Creativity originated with God. God CREATED the world. He designed the universe, the plants, and the animals. Then, He created man. “And God said, ‘Let…

Pass-It-Along

“Pass It Along”

February 29th, 2016 “And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might” (Deuteronomy 6:5). Jesus calls it “the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:38), situated right in the middle of God’s laws. Yet, it has nothing to do with how much good…

Wish you a Blessed New Year!

Family Radio would like to wish all our Listeners a Blessed New Year. As we enter into this New Year, we often think of new goals, new resolutions and all the things that this New Year may bring. In the Bible, God has a lot to say about the word “new”. Let’s reflect on the…
