Greatest Moments - The voices behind the music

We've had some incredible guests over the last few years, and many were from some of the artists who play the music on K-LOVE. Check out some of our favorite moments from them:

Third Day
Mac Powell and the guys from Third Day visited Jake McConahay, a little boy with stage 4 cancer. We were able to make Jake's wish come true of giving 1,000 Pillow Pets to sick children at Riley's Children's Hospital.

About a year ago, I felt God leading me in  different direction.  He had been "setting me up" for several years, but I just hadn't figured it out.  His timing wasn't quite right until then.  It was; however, a very different direction from a financial perspective, for sure.  I left my six figure job to start my own business, in the same discipline, but where I could control the care and service that "our" clients received.  I kept asking my husband who was my major source of encouragement on this earth, "how can we do this"?  We are not wealthy by any means and we do have debt, but he said, he felt strongly that this was the mission that we were to pursue.  So, I gave my notice, left the security of a very nice paycheck and at the beginning of this year, I walked into our new office.  An office and service that everyone in our country needs and secures, but with the intent to serve my client in a manner that was morally and ethically sound.  The first few years of a new business are typically tough financially and there are times that I leave my mind drift and wonder how we are surviving financially, but each month the finances of the company, as well as our personal finances are paid - including our tithing - which I'm certain is key in this endeavor.  There is no doubt that God is leading me.  My job, because it is our own company, allows me to serve as a mission in many ways, and I'm blessed, I'm certain because I heard and listened to God's direction.  My husband said, you've been talking about doing this for 25 years and it's time you trusted in God and took a leap of faith and simply do it.  

There are days when I drift off and say, Lord, what have I done.  But, each time this happens, He sends my eyes to a placque on my desk that reads:  "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.  Jeremiah 29:11" or my magnet that says, "Be strong and couragous."  Simple reminders that bring me back in line.

I may never again earn the salary that I once earned, but I'm happy, I'm driven and I'm blessed so what more could I ask for.

Although I, along with many others, will miss hearing your encouragement in the mornings you will not be forgotten because of the many blessings you have brought to your listeners.  You will remain in our hearts. I wish you both all of the blessings and happiness that can be while you follow God's will for your life.  

May God continue to bless your lives.

Dear Lisa and Eric;

I am so sad to learn the news that you are leaving, but am exceptionally excited for you.  God will bless you for being obedient, as unnerving as it may be to do so.  I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a source of comfort, joy, peace and motivation since I have been listening to your morning show for the past 2 years.  I cannot tell you the number of days the songs you have played, or the words you have spoken have touched me in the deepest places of my heart.  The stories you have shared have been inspirational and challenging.  It's easy for us as listeners to associate what God is doing with you two specifically, so this step you are taking will push us to give God the glory for what KLove is doing.  Although it is true that God deserves the glory, you all had to be a willing vessel for what God has been doing through you, so for that, I am truly grateful.  Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you both on this new journey.

God Bless,

Nina Sullivan

HI Lisa and Eric, I just want to thank you both for your great spirit on the morning show. I listen to you both most times at work when I have internet as I am unable to connect on the radio. I believe God has great plans for you both and we would love to hear more in the future of how you both are changing lives in your path. Thank you so much for all your words, even though I didn't know you tow personally, i always felt like I had family there who go through what I am going through. Lisa, your stories about your boys have always helped me as I have a 3 year old son with so much energy. I will miss you guys, my heart sank when I saw/heard the news but I know there is a greater purpose for this. God bless you both. My family loves you and will miss you.

It has been amazing listening to you laugh and cry with all of us as Christian music blessed your lives.  I took the jump to be at home and still look for God's provisions everyday.  Still waiting for more direction, but spending my time on the kids is worth every minute.  My 8 year old daughter made her profession of faith this summer.  I knew she was ready when we heard "O Glorious Day" on KLove and she could not stop crying.  She really understood what the song was talking about.  What a blessing you have been.  You will be missed.

Hi Lisa & Eric.  I feel like I'm saying goodbye to close friends.  I was amazed to find myself shedding tears at the thought of not spending my mornings with you two anymore.  However it is with excitement that I pray for your next adventures with God.  You have helped me grow in my relationship with God and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that. Our God is so good and awesome.  He has blessed me through you.  I will miss you both and will keep you in my prayers.  May God continue to bless and grow you.

Lisa and Eric - what will I do on my hour commute to work every morning for laughs!  I loved your show and the "Football for Dummies - No Offense, God Bless You" segment earlier this year.  I live not far from Pittsburgh, PA and always enjoyed listening to you try to pronounce Ben Roethlisberger's name.  You are both so funny.  Eric, you may be quiet and timid, but you are one of those people that when they talk you should listen because they always have something funny to say.  I enjoyed seeing Eric dance with Mandisa - what a blast! I just loved how you were so open and honest about your personal walks with God and I am truly going to miss listening to you every morning.  I have to say my heart sank when I visited the web site yesterday and saw that this was your last week.  I think shock then huge disappointment was my reaction.  God bless you both for listening to His voice and leading and fully trusting His will for your life.  God bless and keep you and your families.  Keep the K-Love family posted on what's going on with you.

I too was heart heavy when I saw that you guys would be leaving K-Love. I enjoyed your show nearly every morning and I know God used you guys.
Thanks for doing all that you did to advance His kingdom, and bring some fun and humor into peoples mornings.
If you can, I (and I know others)would enjoy hearing from y'all as possible. Thanks so much.
God bless you and your families.

Lisa & Eric  You have brighened up my morning commute to work over the past 21/2 years.  Your encouragement and playing the right songs at the right times for me has helped me through many tough times, especially the last two weeks with the tragic death of my niece Amy Ann in a horrible car accident.  
I can understand Lisa's decision to be a full time mom, it is a decision I made over 30 years ago and I do not regret that decision at all.  My three sons are grown and married with families of their own  and they would love to be able to afford to have their wives stay at home with their children.

Lisa & Eric,you will be missed.  May God Bless you as you travel this new road each of you havbe decided to follow.

I knew I was going to love Lisa when I heard her tell the story about how she tucked her camera under her arm to lift her son out of a swing, but then the camera lens was shutting and pinching the skin under her arm!  I laughed so hard and have been laughing with Lisa and Eric ever since!  I knew you guys made a great team during a pledge drive when Lisa promised that if the goal was reached, Eric would rap!  I had tears running down my face, I laughed so hard!  Poor Eric! Smile You will both be sorely missed.  I feel like I am losing close friends.  But at the same time, I'm so happy for you both that you have made a good decision to follow God's will for your life.  I pray that He will bless you as you move forward in Him.
