Faith and Friends welcomes our dear friend Ginger Usher to speak into your life about family and prayer.
Todays Faith and Friends is with Suzanne Niles & Wendy Little. Authors of Fast Friends: The Amazing Power of Friendship, Fasting, and Prayer
Suzanne has worked in the areas of entertainment, public relations, editor at large and now author. Suzanne has served with ministries such as The Billy Graham Evangelical Association, World Compassion and now works in the area of Public Relations and Networking for The Salvation Army.
Suzanne and Wendy entered into a partnership of prayer and fasting in the late summer of 2002. "Fast Friends" is some of the account of this journey and how God has blessed and moved in their lives and in the lives of those they have prayed and fasted for.
Today's Faith and Friends Guest is Ginger Sanders.
A little about my friend Ginger.
God is not surprised by any storms in our lives. In fact, we often see Him most during these difficult times. As a rapid response chaplain for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team, Ginger Sanders has seen Him firsthand. She shares her experiences and those of other chaplains in He Goes Before Us, a collection of thirty-one stories from the front lines of both natural and man-made disasters.
Trained and often sent out on a moment’s notice when catastrophe strikes, the chaplains give physical, emotional, and spiritual care to those who need it most. From the floods of Iowa to the scene of the horrific theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Ginger and her fellow chaplains continually see God at work. Lives are changed and souls are saved through His amazing hand.
Today's Faith and Friend is my good friend Sue Detweiler. She recently planted a church in Dallas. She has a lot going on in ministry here's a little bit about her.
Sue Detweiler is a wife, mother of six, author, and pastor with more than twenty-five years of experience in marriage, ministry, and education. She is also a popular speaker who shares her heart and wisdom internationally on issues related to marriage, family, women, prayer, leadership, and ministry.
Sue’s first book, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom, hit No. 1 on Amazon’s hot new releases for Christian women’s issues. Her newest book, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Marriage, grew out of her and her husband’s heart to help couples grow closer to God and to each other. In their pastoral ministry to marriages, they have seen how sharing their own struggles can help create a safe context for couples to be transparent and honest with their own issues. Wayne and Sue have also seen God’s transformative power heal and restore marriages through the marriage conferences and workshops they have led.
Today's Faith and Friends is with my new friend Ray McCollum who will challenge you about how imagination can move you closer to your true future that God has for you.
A little bit about the imagination and Ray..
God has already given you the power to create your own future…you just need to learn how to use it. The Power of God-Given Imagination is about awakening the dreamer within you. It demystifies the power of imagination and shows how we all instinctively use this power without realizing it. It shows how faith and prayer cannot operate without imagination. Author Ray McCollum also debunks the false notion that the power of the mind, the imagination, and dreaming takes one into New Age mysticism or the secular realm of “positive thinking.” The power of the human mind belongs to the church, and God expects us to use it.
My good friend William Federer is a great choice for the Fourth of July and American Freedom.
Here is a little about William Federer,,,
WILLIAM J. FEDERER is a nationally known speaker, best-selling author, and president of Amerisearch, Inc., a publishing company dedicated to researching America's noble heritage.
Bill's AMERICAN MINUTE radio feature is broadcast daily across America and by the Internet. His Faith in History television airs on the TCT Network on stations across America and via DirectTV.
A little about Cheri Keaggy..
“I’ve often said when we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of Jesus,” Keaggy says. “And He’s so faithful to meet us. Jesus is everything to me. And it has been a joy to tell my ‘God stories’ wherever He opens the door. If He can use my struggles to grow me in the faith and make me more effective for the Kingdom, then that’s what I want. I give Him my life to use however He sees fit.”
Perhaps that sentiment is best expressed in the title cut of her ninth album, No Longer My Own, a song inspired by the ‘Covenant Prayer’ popularized by John Wesley. On the heels of her 2012 release, So I Can Tell, songs penned following the end of her twenty-two year marriage to her high school sweetheart, her highly anticipated summer 2015 release seeks to embolden fellow sojourners of the faith to live more fearlessly for Christ.
