Encourage Your Pastor!

October is "Pastor Appreciation Month" and with just a few days left in the month, if you haven't taken the opportunity to express your gratitude to your pastor, make sure you do that! We came across this article (about 10 years old, but still relevant) on some simple ways you can show appreciation to your pastor.

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,

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.
