It was a twenty minute commute to work, and if I wasn't already on the phone with the East coast office I only had to turn up the volume and the radio was already set to our local Christian radio station. You know the jingle. 101.1 KLRC, "The Positive Difference." Well, now there is 99.1 and 90.1, but at that point there was only one frequency.
I’d been a fan of the station since college when I transferred in ‘97 to John Brown University as a married student before my senior year. My minor was in broadcasting and a requirement before graduation was to take my turn as a student DJ for one hour each week. It’s an incredibly hard job sounding genuine and natural over the air!
We love sharing hope in Jesus with you through music, words, and whatever we do. We believe that's the only true hope – the positive difference with eternal significance.
When you are part of KLRC's financial support team, God uses you to make a positive difference in the lives of people like Dee.
I recently read a book that discussed the power of individuals sitting on the same side of the table. Being trained as a social worker, the author was taught to never talk to a client across a desk; but instead to walk around the desk and sit in a chair beside the client so there was nothing in-between them.
This is a simple, but very powerful idea.
As a community-supported radio station, I love that God has a place for all us to be part of the Positive Difference.
When you donate, you are helping bring hope in Jesus to listeners like James.
Live in grace today. "I can’t believe I did that," you say with a shake of your head. "What's the matter with me?"
We speak words of love, tenderness, and compassion to each other and then condemn ourselves. We talk to our souls in way we would never speak to a friend. We pass harsher judgment on our lives than we would on even our enemies sometimes.
We've all had those moments. The surprise that took your breath away, or that moment your heart needed encouragement the most.
One of our listeners, Kerry, told us about their moment in a note.
When you are part of KLRC's financial support team, the Positive Difference you make goes into so many places.
Here's what Carissa, a KLRC listener, told us about listening to KLRC while at work...
My life has been a whirlwind the last few days, but after 5 years of adoption "process," the work of 3 US senators/congressmen, prayers and support from too many friends and family to count, and a string of truly miraculous events, one faithful and powerful God brought our family of 6 together for the very first time Thursday night.
Each time I walk in to check on sweet Ruth, I can't believe she is finally sleeping in the bed that has been waiting for her. There are no adequate words to express what this is like. Ruth asked me if America was in heaven, and it most certainly is not, but an orphan coming home is most certainly a really good picture of it (excuse me while I wipe away some tears).
It's Sharathon time!
It's that critical season where we are asking God to provide the funds needed for KLRC, a community-supported radio station, to stay on-the-air and sharing hope in Christ for another year.
