Lady Antebellum’s Bible
You may have heard about this on the news recently. On their way to the Academy of Country Music Awards in Dallas on Thursday, country music superstars Lady Antebellum’s tour bus caught fire. Fortunately, everyone made it off the bus safely, but it destroyed everything, including many personal items…except for Hillary Scott’s Bible!
As you can see in the picture, the bus was a total loss. She said this experience has deepened her faith. See her Instagram post below:
#repost from @ladyantebellum: I just got this picture from the scene of the fire and HAD to share this. Today, when our bus caught on fire we had quite a few personal belongings in the back (where I was asleep before evacuating the bus) one of them being my Bible. I kid you not, EVERYTHING in the back lounge was destroyed from the flames, except my Bible. The outside cover was burned and messed up but NOT ONE PAGE was missing. Yall, God's Word will always stand. He is FOR YOU, WILL PROTECT YOU, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU WILL NEVER FADE. My faith is forever deepened because of today. I hope this story deepens yours. -hills
Chris August Live in Studio
Chris August made a stop by our studio to visit, and Jerry got to sit down and talk with him about the next adventure God has for him. He shares some tunes, including a really cool updated version of his hit song “Starry Night” as well as his latest “The Maker.”
One thing Chris is very open and honest about is his struggle with depression–particularly since his skateboarding accident 2 years ago that caused a major brain bleed and other complications. However, God seemed to put him in the right place with the right people, and he shares his story of healing.

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]
