Share your Father’s (or father figure’s) words of advice with us! Call the morning show at (877) WGTS-919 or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.

Every year when Father’s Day comes in, it just becomes another day to me. I never really felt like it was a particularly special holiday.

You could never avoid Mother’s Day even if you really wanted to. Every store you’d go to would be filled with pink decorations, gifts, cards and flowers. But Father’s Day seems to get lost in the summer shuffle of Memorial Day, Graduations and 4th of July.

Have we given up on Father’s Day?

Maybe I’m just a little bit jaded, since I was raised by a single mom and have only met my father twice. And to be honest he hasn’t been the best example to follow in life.

I looked around at my coworkers and friends and so many of them were raised by a single mom. Sadly, we know that the divorce rate is rising. And you don’t have to go far to hear about the Arnold Schwarzeneggers and Tiger Woods who are turning away from their families.

I think that’s why Sanctus Real’s Lead Me has really touched me.

Lead singer Mark Hammitt said “the song is a personal confession and prayer and proved to be a source of hope as my wife Sarah and I walked through a difficult pregnancy. I wrote the song after my wife implored me to be a better spiritual leader in the family. I think the challenge for me in the song, and hopefully for other men as well, is every time I hear it, every time I sing it, I ask myself, “what kind of man am I?” Not yesterday, not tomorrow, but what kind of man am I today? Have I invested in my family emotionally, spiritually the way that God has called me to reach out to them and to lead them?”

This song demonstrated what differentiates the good fathers from the bad. It shows that we just need to rely on God for guidance, not just to be good fathers, but to be real men.

So share with us the advice and lessons you learned from your father or father figure, so that together we can take a stand to be real fathers.

You can call the WGTS Studio from 6 AM – 7 PM at (877) 948-7919 or leave us a comment on this page.

Taking a Stand Against Mediocrity – Alex and Bret Harris

Taking a Stand Against Mediocrity – Alex and Bret Harris

“The next generation stands on the brink of a “rebelution.”

With over 35 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to “do hard things” for the glory of God.

Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins’ revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Do Hard Things inspired thousands of young people to make the most of the teen years. Now Alex and Brett Harris are back and ready to tackle the questions that Do Hard Thingsinspired: How do I get started? What do I do when I get discouraged? What’s the best way to inspire others?

Filled with stories and insights from Alex, Brett, and other real-life rebelutionaries, Start Here is a powerful and practical guide to doing hard things, right where you are.

Are you ready to take the next step and blast past mediocrity for the glory of God?

Start here.

The WGTS praise and prayer time Monday morning heard from over 250 listeners, sharing their praises, offering their prayers, and requesting prayer for their own lives. One of the callers, Susan from Westminster shared with us her praise and thanks to God for the miracles He performed in her life and for her daughter. In 2004, her daughter was shot, and it took over 50 units of blood to save her life. But the doctors said even that shouldn’t have spared her. Susan was convinced that through prayer, God performed a miracle and saved her daughter. God helped them forgive the shooter, her daughter had to relearn everything through therapy, and by His grace she is alive when she shouldn’t be. These are the kind of stories we hear every day at WGTS, and it’s all made possible by the support and prayers of our listening family; listeners just like Susan. So call us today, we would love to hear from you. Pray with us, and for your fellow listeners.

“Is any among you suffering? Let him pray. Is any cheerful? Let him sing praise.” James 5:13
This morning, our friend Shale from Westchester called in and shared her story of the importance of prayer and church family.  Her son was recently in an accident in which he fell and hit his head. His head was swollen; he then blacked out, and later had a seizure. While he was in the hospital, their church family visited, bringing comfort and words of encouragement. The church family prayed with Shale and her son, that God would spare his life, that His will be done. Soon after, the boy was released from the hospital, and he made a full recovery. Through this time, Shale knew she wasn’t alone, and it was then that she realized the power of prayer and the importance of church family.
Call WGTS today and share your praises with us. Pray with us, and for your fellow listeners. Help us in letting them know they are not alone, and that they have a family here at WGTS.
