Disability, bankruptcy, fear, dysfunctional family of origin, anger, emergency rooms, life flights - these are just some of the words describing the challenges my family and I have had to face. "What's wrong with me? Or is this someone else's fault? Am I being punished?" Those questions and more have defined a pathway that often didn't look like the will of God at all. With over 40 years in the ministry, managing a growing television station, pastoring 4 churches, and being on the road, we've seen a lot. Though there have been many miracles, the greatest challenges to faith have come when it seemed like God had vanished. But along the entire journey, He was placing signs that helped us overcome everything - often the hard way. These podcasts are all about the tough encounters and what God showed us about faith and peace when it seemed like He had vanished. Opposition, sickness, and brokenness all became avenues of greater strength. When I retired due to disability, I felt like I spent a year and a half in exile. But as the Covid pandemic began, God called me back. I sensed a great burden for America, and He began to show me that what I had been through was a picture of what our nation was about to go through and how to overcome.

God's not destroying America - He's setting her apart!

Faith in the Storm - Episode 1

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. Revelation 5:9-10
