    Tripit.com

    Some people are saying this site is addictive.  It can do a lot of cool things including coordinating your vacations with your family and friends, as well as keeping track of flight times, confirmation numbers, hotel addresses and phone numbers.  So instead of carrying around a stack of printed-out e-mails to know when your flight leaves, where your rental car is, and how to find your hotel, you can have it all in a free on-line account at Tripit.com.  Thought you might like:)  hugs and k-love, Lisa

    Youth miniStarZ

    Okay, so I just watched this video 7 times:)  We saw it a few days ago in a staff meeting, and I laughed.  A lot:)  So I went hunting for it on YouTube and found it;  I thought you might find it funny, too.  Maybe it's because we have so many friends who are youth ministers, maybe it's because there are so many clever lines, maybe it's because the song is actually quite good...

    Here's what the creators say about it:  Written by Benjamin Wallis for Student Life Camp 2009.  Being a youth minister is hard work. Hard work that often goes unthanked. So...THANK YOU.

    Serving on your K-LOVE Morning Show these days...

    Producer David Fountain takes your calls at 800-900-1300, Amy Baumann has news updates twice an hour from her Ohio studios, and Lisa & Eric drink coffee, talk on the phone, and laugh a lot.  (Not pictured:  Dan Dillard who covers news in Denver from 6-9am local time; Lisa Torres who answers your questions when you write to the morning show.)

    And we can't forget Momma!  Lisa's Momma calls in almost every morning from Shreveport, Louisiana, with wisdom, commentary on the day's news, or funny stories from Lisa's childhood.  She always reminds us to "stay close to God".

    We are SO thankful we get to spend our mornings with you, playing music, hearing your stories, keeping you informed, laughing, praying, thinking and sharing life together!
