I know that this is really not related to the topic of your show, but I would really like to ask Kurt if he would be a guest speaker for Pop Warner Little Scholar banquet for the SW Valley Association.  The event is planned for Sat, Oct 23 at 530-800 pm in Buckeye, AZ.  

Please Please Please forward this request to him or his contacts.  I know that he was heavily involved with Pop Warner as a player and with his son in the Far West Association.  I can be reach via email 24/7.  Thank you!!

Hi. Kurt Warner made me actually like football. I had read that he was a Christian and I started cheering for him and the Cardinals. I was dissapointed when he retired but I still cheer for the Cardinals. I hope you do good on Dancing With the Stars Mr. Warner!

For the first time since becoming a klove listener over a year ago, I had to do a double take, wondering if I had turned my radio station on accident on the way home from work today.  Hearing Kurt Warner talk about "the Situation" made "the Situation" sound like a pretty alright guy, one that we might even look up to or admire for his perseverance in making a living.  On klove I would hope that we would not condone making a living with public promiscuity or consider him a "good guy" for earning a living in such an immoral way. I am sure that Kurt was attempting to be politically correct and kind in describing a man who has most likely been very kind to him, but klove stands for more than that.  People who openly and publically promote a life of sin and immorality should not be considered "good" people since we know that being good certainly doesn't get a person to heaven and as Christians, we cannot lead others to the gospel of Christ by sugarcoating poor choices and condoning sinful lifestyles.  While Dancing with the Stars may be an interesting show, maybe it should be discussed in other venues, not on a Christian radio station.

I think that it is great that is a christian and is not afraid to show his faith! i am learning that being a "celebrity" isnt how many times that they are in the tabloids or in the news but the example and influences that they leave! I love that about him,  he takes every oppertunity to share his faith!! i hope everyone takes time to realize that "celebrities" arent what they seem to be by themselves, but with God they are bright shining stars! AND beautiful influences! ;)
                    God bless!

I watched Kurt Warner's career and have always admired him as a man of God. Far too many athletes are not the role model that we want our children and grandchildren to look up to. I'm glad that Kurt has not compromised and holds Jesus  up as his standard.  I live in Steeler country and love the Steelers however when they played the Caridnals in the Superbowl I must admit I was cheering for the Cardinals. K-Love is great ...I listen every day.  thanks for the great radio.

I think that is Great that Kurt is a christian and takes every oppertunity to share the good news! im 15 and am learning that being a "celebrity" isnt how many times they are in the tabloids or how many people like them for false reasons, but the example and influence in christ and the good things that they do for other people! God shines through Kurt in everything that he does and i encourage everyone to look closer at the "celebrities" because only Christ can make you shine like a star!

Kurt, I'm not a football fan, but I do watch DWTS. I was so glad to hear your interview tonight on KLOVE saying that you're a Christian! I'll encourage people I know to vote for you for that very reason. The longer you stay, the more influence for God you'll have. Don't get discouraged as you get tired, keep being an Evangelist to the Stars!!!!

I really enjoyed your book with you and Brenda's story.  Thank you for all you've done for AZ Cardinals we miss you!  I have watched Dancing with the Stars for a few seasons voting for my favorite sports people.  I said I wouldn't watch this year but you have made the difference.  I don't like some of the dances being too racey but that is what the fast forward on my DVR is for.  You have always been a good witness for Jesus and I believe this assignment will not be any different.

God Bless you, Kurt Warner, and all your family! I always was so inspired and proud of such a true Godly man you are, and even through you being with the Cardinals! What a great example you were of Christ all the time...in the good and bad times. You live it out all the time, and that's the way it should be! You're always not be ashamed or afraid but proud and excited to talk about your Lord Jesus Christ, your testimony, your wife and family, etc. You keep that up! Honestly, I was surprised and disappointed when I heard you were on that show. I don't watch that show, I heard about it on the KLOVE or the news. If God called you to do that, then I am happy for you! We will pray for you! I want to encourage you to keep doing what you are doing, but stay strong, BE that SALT and LIGHT in the world! Be that strong Godly man and Godly influence in the world so all those people see Christ through you! You and your family stick together, stay in the Word, and let God lead you guys! You guys are amazing!

Hi I really wanted to hear your show with Kurt Warner today.  My son had a doctor appointment so i missed it. Is there aw ay i can go on your Wpage on Klove to hear it?  My family are 5 generation rams fans and even better we are very long time christians.  My mom loved hearing the rams back when Kurt was our quarterback.  She was blind so listening was her eyes.  She died a year after we won the superbowl.  She had so much enjoyment that year.  I would love to hear your show if possible.  thank you  Roselene

Kurt,

I enjoyed watching you throughout your career as a St. Louis Ram and Arizona Cardinal.  As a long-time Seattle Seahawk fan I saw you beat up on my Hawks more than once.  It is amazing what God has done in your life, and how he led you back to play in the NFL.  You are a very humble and inspiring man who's love for God has touched many people's lives.  I hope that whatever you are doing in your life, that you and your family are blessed!

Sincerely,

Ben Anderson

Kurt,
It is awesome to see how God uses you each day because of your willingness to submit to him.  What a lesson you teach me and one that I struggle with each day.  Your a Godly man who is the kind of role model we should all aspire to get to be more like.  Of course - your that role model because of Jesus Christ leading you each and every day.  Thanks for all the football memories and more importantly, thanks for never being ashamed of your savior "Jesus Christ" and giving him the glory.  May you and your family continue to be blessed and used in promoting Gods word and kingdom.

Guys, we have been washing on cold for years. Yes, even your whites get clean. We use just a little Oxyclean in the wash with the whites to be sure things get as clean as possible. Give it a try!

One way to help with the electric bill is do not have the blinds open during the hottest part of the day.  One other way is to use room darking blinds or shades.   they help keep the house cooler and the ac doesn't work as hard

1. Turn lights off in any room you are not currently in (turn them off behind you).
2. Run a fan in the summer instead of the AC.
3. Close the blinds in the summer and open them in the winter. When closing them in the summer, point them upwards inside the house and downwards at the ground outside (most people point them in the incorrect direction).
4. Run an air purifier every other day instead of contiuously.
5. You mentioned laundry. Try using warm (on the cooler side) for whites.
6. I also heard that cell phone chargers draw power when not in use.  Unplug 'em.

My husband and I are the ultimate savers! We saved over $25,000 our first year of marriage to buy our first house and last year we saved $20,000 to buy a bigger truck to fit our first baby on the way, and this year we're saving to pay of his student loans! We think about our future with every purchase we make.
We plug in our tv, dvd, and stereo into a single power supply and turn it off every night, saving on power that the equipment is pulling even when it is turned off.
I've sacrificed my hair appointments, letting my natural hair color grow and now my husband even cuts my hair for me!! I know it's a hard one to talk about, but that $100 every other month pays off!
During the summer months, we both ride our bikes to working saving a bunch on gas money.
We always pack a home-made salad for lunch with us work, and I cook dinner every night, and on those days that I really don't feel like cooking or doing the dishes, we go to Taco Bell and only spend $7 total. We only order water...soda's are bad for you anyways!
I'm 30 years old and 6 months pregnant, trying to make a difference and hoping to teach our child to be smart with money!

we do our laundry in the morning before school/work....Throw your clothes in the dryer for about 10 mins, sort them, then hang them up to dry in the door ways. This saves electricty, plus when you get home, if you sorted the laundry, your clothes are in your door way, waiting to be put away. =)

My mom's pretty clever.

tips on how to save on your electrical bill:
1. unplug your toaster oven, even when you are not toasting something it still draws electricity.
2. make it a habit to turn off lights when you are not in a room, even if you are coming right back. Every second counts!
And yes cell phone chargers do draw electricity when not in use as do lap top, camera and mp3 chargers!

If you have an elderly person or handicapped person that lives in your home you can sign up for Medical Baseline with you Electric Company. It offers you a certain amount of kilowatts or whatever the measurement is for free and then I believe a discounted price after that.  I have a child who has a brain injury and part of her condition is that she doesn't regulate her body temperature well.  She's not as bad with the cold, but in the heat she just gets hotter and hotter.  When it first starts to warm up in the spring and the rest of us think it's so nice she is red faced and burning up.  It has been a huge blessing to our family to have that help available, especially since we really do need to keep our house at a constant temperature for her.  You just need a doctor to sign a form.  It is actually mainly for people who have to run medical equipment in their home, but can be used for other reasons if the doctor approves it.  
Also, we live in central CA.  It usually gets up to 110-115 in the hottest part of the summer.  We put heat blocking curtains up on all our big windows and keep them closed like all summer...or at least when the sun is shining directly in them, we have definitely noticed a difference with that.

When trying to keep lights turned off in a room, like a bathroom, install a switch with a built in timer that will shut off after 10, 20 or 30 min.
This is great for young kids.

there are peak hours for use of electric which are usually between 9:am&7:30-8:pm if you wait until after these hrs the cost of kilo watts is cheaper because the amount of people using power is decreased.house wives are cleaning and using alot of power during these hrs.

Plant one or more shade trees strategically around your house. In the summer time, the shade will drastically cut down your cooling bill. If you pick the right type of tree it will lose its leaves in the winter letting that now wanted sunlight into your windows. Many cities like mine will give rebates up to $30 a tree to do this.

   I wash our clothes in cold water.  Since my husband has allergies, I put the dryer on the lowest setting possible, but I also keep a few dry clothes in the dryer, it speeds up drying time.

I set my dishwasher's timer to come on several hours after we have done to bed so as not to use electricity in peak hours.  It also eliminates having to listen to it run and try to talk above the noise it makes!  I also have bought a drying rack for clothes.  I toss the whites in the dryer for a few minutes and then hang them out to dry the rest of the way.  I do the same with all other loads except that I hang those up in door ways to dry! You would be amazed at how just bumping your AC up a degree or heat down a degree or two will make a difference.  Your body adjusts quickly.

One of the comments you read on the air mentioned turning off lights and appliances whenever they were not in use, such as when you left the room. One thing most people don't realize is that electrical appliances have inrush or start up current that can use 10 minutes or more of electricity when they are first turned on. One caution I have is that if you run around turning lights off and on and there is not much time in between, you might actually use more electricity. It is also true that most appliances have a shorter life span if they are switched of and on frequently, and will increase replacement costs. I am not emoloyed by an electric company! What does make sense is to turn off everything you can if it will be left off for some time, such as overnight. Many appliances do use a substantial amount of electricity when switched off, but plugged in. Another misconception I have noticed is people using ceiling fans while cutting back on their air conditioner. It does make sense to do this in an occupied room. These fans cool your skin because of air movement, but they actaully heat the air and should not be left running for extended periods of time in an unoccupied room. This heats the air and actually makes the air conditioner run more.

If you have electric heating turn down your heat to around 60 or 55 degrees. Its funny because you all were just talking about chasing your kids around telling them to turn off the lights. I am always doing that.

Unplug your stuff when not in use, such as the toaster (lamps, ect.), when you use it just plug it in and when your done unplug it, very easy and will save you.

If you have electric heating you can turn the heat down to 60 or 55 degrees and  save electricity.You guys on the radio were just talking about how you would have to chase your kids around and watch them every second to make sure they were turning lights and fans off, well i have to do that everyday! When you leave the room turn the lights off its that easy, and every night we turn the main power devices off and if its hot @ night instead of using the fans we just open the windows.

theres a bunch you can do such as get energy saving light bulbs they make the in almost every size you can think of even the long florsecent ones. You can unplug electronics such as you tv dvd player etc as they use power even when there not turned on u can save alot of money just by unpluging. you can use solar panles for alot they even make small solar powerd cell phone chargers i have one myslef. and in alot of places if you buy a power producing windmill the power company  will actually pay you if you are generating more power than you are using.

I always turn the furnace down in the winter one degree for every hour I am going to be out of the house.  So for a normal work day about 9 degrees and then when I get home I turn it back up.  Same goes for A/C.  Cold water for washing clothes, change furnace filter every month, set your computer to hibernate when not in use and turn it off before going to bed (see power options under the control panel).  Buy 12 volt converter for your car to charge your cell phones, laptops and electronics while driving.

This time of year it is warm during the day and cooler at night. Instead of running your A/C all night (even on automatic) turn the thermostat to your desired temperature and when you get there, turn your A/C completely off. Your house should stay cool all night. This will probably only work for a couple of months. Every little bit helps.
