hello from Indy

Hope you're having a great Sunday (if you're reading this on Sunday:)  My family is in Indianapolis for a few days, enjoying some cool, sunshiny days.  Now that our pledge drive is over, all of us are just having a "thank you" weekend, thanking God for His favor and presence during the past few days of our fall pledge drive.  It felt like a revival at the K-LOVE studios.  There was so much prayer, many heartfelt conversations in the hallways, and a lot of deep reflection.  In the midst of the drive, K-LOVE lost a dear employee and friend.  Keith Whipple left earth to run into the arms of Jesus.  Instead of a funeral, he wanted a celebration party, which he had yesterday, with many of his friends gathering to celebrate his life.  My favorite memory of Keith was when we had a K-LOVE land-lover cruise for all the employees who didn't go on the K-LOVE cruise a few years ago.  I remember him in a Hawaiin shirt, holding my son Jon David for a picture, with the biggest smile on his face.  That memory stays with me the most.  He was Eric's boss here at K-LOVE when Eric first got here, so Eric really knew him well.  We're happy for Keith, that he's in heaven.  And we ask that you pray for his family because they are hurting.  (I just found the picture of Keith and Jon David--see below.)

Even though I'm not posting the Proverbs for a few days, keep reading one a day for each day in October, and I will, too.  I like the idea of us growing together.  We visited a church here in Indy today, and it was a wonderful worship time and a wonderful sermon.  We sure hope you have a church you get to go to regularly.  It makes all the difference when it comes to spiritual growth.

Okay, we're going to go enjoy the rest of our day, and a few days off.  Talk to you again on Wednesday.  Call Eric Monday or Tuesday morning and tell him about your weekend, or whatever:)  800-900-1300.  AND ENJOY ALL THE PLEDGE-DRIVE-LESS MUSIC!!!  :)

blessings and k-love, Lisa 

From January 2008, Jon David Williams and Keith Whipple

Proverbs and you

hey friends:)  it's the last day of pledge drive and it's just crazy!!  i have a second while a song is playing just to say...

keep reading the Proverbs, even if i don't post them here!!

last night, i turned out the light and realized:  i didn't post a Proverb on the blog!

and then i realized:  i didn't read a Proverb today!  so i turned back on the light and drank in Proverbs 22--so powerful, so true and so wonderful to think about as my pledge-drive-fatiged brain tried to turn off 800-525-5683:)))

so, i'm pressed for time this morning...time to go back on the air even right now.

so grab you a Bible and read Proverbs 23 before this October 23 is done...

and keep listening today to see if we hit 100%.

God is moving.

love in Christ,

Lis

Quotes from this morning...

During Pledge Drive this morning, I read some quotes from John C. Maxwell's book Encouragement Changes Everything.  Here they are...

God’s love for us gives us the reason to encourage others.  God’s love in us gives us the ability to encourage others.  God’s love through us gives us the way to encourage others.  -John C. Maxwell

There are three kinds of people in the world today.  There are "well-poisoners," who discourage you and stomp on your creativity and tell you what you can't do.  There are "lawn-mowers," people who are well-intentioned but self-absorbed; they tend to their own needs, mow their own lawns, and never leave their yards to help another person.  Finally, there are "life-enhancers," people who reach out to enrich the lives of others, to lift them up and inspire them.  We need to be life-enhancers, and we need to surround ourselves with life-enhancers.  -Walt Disney

Thank you to our friend Jeannie for sending us the book with these quotes.  It's a great little book, especially encouraging to us during this pledge drive.

Victory rests with the Lord (read the last verse!)

 Hello friends who are reading through Proverbs with us in October!  Proverbs 21 is SO rich.  I'm just trying not to live our verses 9 & 19:)  Enjoy these words of wisdom... blessings, Lis

Proverbs 21 (NIV)

 1 The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD;
       he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.

 2 All a man's ways seem right to him,
       but the LORD weighs the heart.

 3 To do what is right and just
       is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.

 4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart,
       the lamp of the wicked, are sin!

 5 The plans of the diligent lead to profit
       as surely as haste leads to poverty.

 6 A fortune made by a lying tongue
       is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.

 7 The violence of the wicked will drag them away,
       for they refuse to do what is right.

 8 The way of the guilty is devious,
       but the conduct of the innocent is upright.

 9 Better to live on a corner of the roof
       than share a house with a quarrelsome wife.

 10 The wicked man craves evil;
       his neighbor gets no mercy from him.

 11 When a mocker is punished, the simple gain wisdom;
       when a wise man is instructed, he gets knowledge.

 12 The Righteous One takes note of the house of the wicked
       and brings the wicked to ruin.

 13 If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor,
       he too will cry out and not be answered.

 14 A gift given in secret soothes anger,
       and a bribe concealed in the cloak pacifies great wrath.

 15 When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous
       but terror to evildoers.

 16 A man who strays from the path of understanding
       comes to rest in the company of the dead.

 17 He who loves pleasure will become poor;
       whoever loves wine and oil will never be rich.

 18 The wicked become a ransom for the righteous,
       and the unfaithful for the upright.

 19 Better to live in a desert
       than with a quarrelsome and ill-tempered wife.

 20 In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil,
       but a foolish man devours all he has.

 21 He who pursues righteousness and love
       finds life, prosperity and honor.

 22 A wise man attacks the city of the mighty
       and pulls down the stronghold in which they trust.

 23 He who guards his mouth and his tongue
       keeps himself from calamity.

 24 The proud and arrogant man-"Mocker" is his name;
       he behaves with overweening pride.

 25 The sluggard's craving will be the death of him,
       because his hands refuse to work.

 26 All day long he craves for more,
       but the righteous give without sparing.

 27 The sacrifice of the wicked is detestable—
       how much more so when brought with evil intent!

 28 A false witness will perish,
       and whoever listens to him will be destroyed forever.

 29 A wicked man puts up a bold front,
       but an upright man gives thought to his ways.

 30 There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
       that can succeed against the LORD.

 31 The horse is made ready for the day of battle,
       but victory rests with the LORD.

New International Version (NIV)
