Breakfast with Chris Tomlin
His music is heard and sung more places around the world than any other artist…mainstream or Christian. And we celebrated the release of his new album “Love Ran Red” LIVE in studio with Jerry & Blanca.
Save Pastor Saeed
Jerry & Blanca recently sat down to talk to Nagmeh Abedini, wife of Pastor Saeed Abedini, who has been in an Iranian prison the last two years for sharing his faith. They talk to Nagmeh about her journey, and how she remains strong in the face of opposition, and just trying to get her voice heard in order to convince those in power to release him. Listen back to the full interview and learn how you can be involved in helping to free him.
Pastor Saeed is a former Muslim who converted to Christianity in 2000. Muslim converts to Christianity suffer discrimination at the hands of Iranian authorities. In July 2012, he and his family made their ninth trip to Iran since 2009 to build an orphanage in the city of Rasht. While there, his passports were confiscated and placed him under house arrest. He was later trasferred to Evin Prison, where he has been since. Last year, a judge sentenced him to eight years. The U.S. State Department has condemned the sentence, and have been working on his release. [from Wikipedia]

For King & Country
Luke joined Jerry & Blanca to talk about how being a part of one of Christian music’s fastest up-and-coming bands, and a musical family has meant to them. And with two boys, traveling, and some very personal life experiences over the last two years, there’s been plenty of material for inspiration for many of the songs on their upcoming album, which comes out September 16th.
Jerry & Blanca’s Ice Bucket Challenge
They thought they might be able to get out of doing it, but it’s come around to WGTS 91.9′s morning team. Overnight host & Digital Content Coordinator, Rob Conway, had challenged Jerry Woods last week. So today, he convinced Blanca Vega to join him in getting doused in support of some good causes. See what happened here:
I Used To Be So Organized!
Something happens when you become a parent. Things that once took you two seconds now take 20 minutes! And a new school year routine also adds to the stress this time of year.
Glynnis Whitwer can sympathize–she’s a mom of 5 kids, plus her other full-time job is the Executive Director of Communications at Proverbs 31 Ministries. But she also has learned how to not let balancing all of this overwhelm her.
Becky Alignay from Middays got to sit down with her and talk about her new book “I Used to Be So Organized: Help for Restoring Order and Peace.”
