Hi there and welcome to my radio show blog. I'm glad you are here and hope you will find something useful.

I'm a 72 year old radio broadcaster who found great peace in his old age in the forgiveness that Jesus Christ offers to sinners.

When I was working at a radio station in Fort Dodge, Iowa, God was kind enough and merciful enough to draw me back into fellowship with Him. I had drifted so far away from God I'm sure some thought there was no hope for me. Thank God Jesus came to seek and save those who are lost.

One day when I was driving back to Missouri to spend a weekend there at my home, I saw a sign on a farm pasture North of Indianola. It said "Prepare to meet thy God." I was 62 years old at the time and thinking of my mortality, and decided to try and get things right with God. Of course, I learned, only Jesus makes us right with God. But that sign was God's love sign in life to me to come to Him.

God showed me that Christ took the punishment for all my sins. Nothing I could do could make me right before God. As a matter of fact He showed me my own righteousness was as filthy rags and useless. Only He could save me and make me acceptable in His presence by clothing me with the righteousness of Christ.

November 19, 2006 was the day God led me to pray and put faith in what Jesus Christ had done on the Cross as my only hope for salvation. He was God's sacrifice for my sins. He alone could make me acceptable before God the Father.

So here I am today sharing this Good News with you. Do you need forgiveness of sins? Go to Jesus. Do you need your broken heart to be healed? Go to Jesus. Are you held prisoner by certain sins? Go to Jesus and He will set you free. He has done it for me and I know He will do it for you.
