I really enjoyed hearing your interview with Sam Cook today. I really love the words to their new song "Come Home." It inspired me to put it to a slideshow once I heard about Ted Williams. I was riding to work one morning and heard this song and Ted Williams came to my mind and I went home that day after work and began to find pictures to put together a slideshow using that song. In hopes to touch someone’s life and understand that no matter the depth in which you've fallen God's arms are never to short to reach you. I hope you all like it.

Thank you for all you do.
I wanted to ask you if you would please take American Idol and worldly TV shows off your topic list.  The listeners of KLove do not need to hear about that show or any shows that are similar.  They do not seek to glorify God. Rather, they seek to glorify themselves.  As you are encouraging the listeners to listen to only Christian music, this clearly compromises this goal.
Please honor this request.

I was so jazzed to hear the interview with Sam Hancock.  The first time I heard "Come Home" I was driving home from work, knowing I was going to lose my job, knowing my life was not where it should be, knowing I had no idea how I was going to take care of my three boys without the job that was killing me... Knowing I had no idea what to do next.  That song just hit me straight in the heart.  The line that is, for me, so incredible powerful is where it says, "Your Father's screaming, 'Just come home'."

To think of my heavenly Father screaming for me to come home... wow... even now, it brings tears to my eyes.

I wondered about the story behind the song... now I know.  Thank you so much.

And... yes... I did lose my job just before Christmas.  So I'm job hunting and trusting my Father who screams for me to come home, to lead me to the right job.

Sunrise blessed me at a time in my life when I need to hold on to the Lord the most. My husband & I were going through a divorce and I never prayed for restoration, all I prayed for was for everyone to be happy and that God's will be done. Even though I was hurting and my husband was being ugly and mean, all that I would say was "all I want is for you to be happy" The sermon the day before our final hearing was "It's not over until God says it is over" and after the service, my Pastor got up and said we are not done "if you have a doctors appointment this week, come down and have someone pray with you, if you have a court hearing, come down and have someone pray with you". I was about to DIE! I had a couple pray with me, and again I just asked them to pray that God's will be done. Even though I was hurting inside and in pain, I truly only wanted God's will to be done". All I could hold onto was the word from SUNRISE
"All you need is a sunrise
Just a moment of dawn
If you're lost in the twilight
Close your eyes and move on
When you're tired in the waiting
Even though it's gonna take you
A little more time
Just a little more time the sun's gonna find you"
We had our hearing, and I walked out of the courtroom. 7 days later, my husband called me and asked for me to come and talk with him and I did. He cried and said he made a huge mistake and told me he still wanted to be married. He said a lot more, but to make a long story short, I went home and prayed, went and we filed a Motion to Null and Void the divorce order. I found out that in the past 30 years, it had only happend 4 times. I prayed and told God if it was HIS will that it be granted. It was granted on the day the order was to go to vital statistics. If had went to Vital Statistics we would be divorced and would have had to gotten remarried. But God chose to put us back together. Thank you for a song that helped me hold on when I felt like giving up! Be blessed and I pray the Lord blesses you all! For if it was not for KLOVE and this song, I do not know if I could have gotten through this event.
