FATHERLESS HOLE TURNED WHOLE - Mark Wright

FATHERLESS HOLE TURNED WHOLE - Mark Wright

January 22, 2022

In This Episode

Joesph and Job, two men in the Bible who lost everything and suffered to the extent most of us would have given up, but both of them proclaimed "What Satan has intended for evil, God will use for good."  This sums up Mark Wright's podcast and his story.  His parents got divorced when he was only 5. Although his mother remarried and he had a good step father, the hole in his life for his God given birth father was a wound he carried.

The evil plot Satan likes to have on all of us and tried to have on Mark's story failed once Mark gave his life to Jesus and grew in his understanding of the Heavenly Father.  God would later use Mark's story to start a ministry called Idols Aside to minister to and love all fatherless youth, single mothers and grandmothers.

Our conversation is around the Tornado in Kentucky where Mark and his family live. Mark's faithfully serving and could really use your prayers, support and love.  Beyond awareness of their work and ministry, my hope  for all of us is to see how God can take the brokenness of our past and story and turn it into something GOOD if we'll allow him to. 

Enjoy this episode and share it with someone!
Remember you have a story and it matters more than you know!!!

Pro Skateboarder / Brian Sumner

Pro Skateboarder / Brian Sumner

January 15, 2022

In This Episode

Brian came to American from Liverpool which he describes life there as a kid as Godless, New Agey, and how he never even knew a person who was a Christian.  But deep down in, he questioned if there was a God.

Skateboarding is what brought Brian over to America where eventually he would join with Tony Hawk the legendary Skateboarder and his company, turning pro himself as a young teenager.  As things in America turned up, skating professionally and living a rockstar life, Brian gets married young and a few months into the next chapter, it all comes crashing down.  

He's divorced, angry, depressed and left questioning the very reason for his own existence. God, are you real? Brian sums this point of his life up by saying, "Life was so frustrating and not going good, that I literally told God, I'm going to disprove you're NOT real and when I do, I'll know that I'm nothing more than an evolved ape and I can go and take my life and end it all." 

As he began to read the Bible on this suicidal theology mission, God showed up in Brian's life and proved to Brian, in fact I'm real and I love you and I care for you. You matter! This was the beginning of God's work in Brian's life and this episode dives into God's story in Brian. 

Enjoy this episode!

IN THIS EPISODE

 Although Gary was a Christian since a young age, he faced a battle with depression that caught him by surprise in recent years. Listen in to discover how God carried him through one of the darkest nights of his life.

Battling with depression and insecurities was very new to Gary. It came soon after he had broken his neck from a tragic fall on his head. Dealing with physical pain, lack of mobility and Bells Palsey in his face created a culmination of feelings that took a tole on Gary's mental health and his emotional health. But his story didn't end with him being defeated by the enemy, but rather God's word and Gary's determined faith brought him out of his recovery stronger spiritually and with a renewed tenderness for people who've gone through depression or struggled with insecurities.

Gary prayed for a miracle every day for months, yet he didn't receive it, at least not the one he was praying for. Instead, Gary's neck was repaired via surgery, screws and physical therapy, but through his recovery and brokenness physically, God revealed a deeper healing that Gary needed and received which was having grace and a better understanding of what people go through who are struggling with addictions, depression or other emotional pain.

Gary also shares a story of how his wife, Janie was diagnosed with terminal cancer. She was given 6 months to live, but this time as Gary & Janie and family prayed, God did bring a miracle. Janie was fully healed of cancer and is praising God 11 years later.

Hopefully you are encouraged by listening to Gary's story. Please subscribe to the channel, like and review the podcast and.... REMEMBER...You story matters more than you know! Enjoy this episode! Remember you have a story and it matters more than you know!!! #yourstorymattersmorethanyouknow

GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU / BOBBY JOINER

GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU / BOBBY JOINER

November 8, 2021
Bobby Joiner shares his story of how his faith came early at the age of 12, but something happened shortly after that played a role in his decision to choose a different path, walking away from God.  He pursued his own pleasures, and in his words, "I made a lot of stupid decisions."  15 years later after being hurt, offended and frustrated about his story, God would use his wife, Debbie to get him studying the Bible which not only restored his faith, but changed his life course altogether.  

His biggest discovery was the God he walked away from was not the God of the Bible. In fact, God was opposite of what Bobby thought.  "I went on a diligent pursuit of reading the Bible which truly brought me into a personal fellowship again with God."

Bobby went on to serve God 30 plus years in prison ministry and serving as Winter Jam Tour pastor to some of the greatest Christian Music bands in the world.  His vulnerability and passion for God is a safe and trusting place for many Christian Music stars to confide in and remain steadfast in their faith. To this we can all thank God for people like Bobby who are unashamed of their past failures in light of what God can do when we open up and accept people where they are.

Maren Morris Band Member Matt Butler

Maren Morris Band Member Matt Butler

October 22, 2021
In This Episode,

You will hear the behind the scenes with one of the best in music yet one of the most humble people you could ever meet.  Matt Butler has played with some of the greatest in Country Music and Christian Music, but you would never know it.  This guy doesn't even have an instagram. You'll have to find more about him through his joint social media which his lovely wife, Ashlee Butler posts for them. @butlermattandashlee.

Currently, Matt is the newest member of the Maren Morris band, playing keyboards/B3 & Cello.  He has toured the country and even parts of the world on his new adventure in country music, but if you're a Christian you likely remember him from 10+ years as lead singer of the band, NewSong.  He toured a band director for the country's largest Christian tour called Winter Jam. Perhaps you'e heard of it?

God has not only gifted Matt musically, but as you will hear, given him a calling to be a light in mainstream music. As he put it, "I wake up everyday and say Lord, how can I serve these people today?"  It is rare to find someone like Matt who shares the stage with the rich and famous yet walks humbly before the Lord and others.

As you listen into this episode, ask yourself a few questions to see if you're on track with what God wants to do in your life?
1. Are you following God's call in your life?
2. Are you aware of the people God has put in your life to save you or grow you spiritually? 
3. What take aways can you draw personally from this interview.

Ps. Please like and share this episode so more people can discover it.

Ashlee Butler‘s Story

Ashlee Butler‘s Story

October 14, 2021
"Being married to a musician it's easy to believe my husband has a good story, but me..who would want to hear my story?

IN THIS EPISODE Ashlee Butler will win you over with her contagious spirit and humble heart and you will see why we care so deeply about every story.  The temptation to dismiss our story because we feel like no one would want to hear it, is a very real temptation for anyone to believe.  Do you think this about your story?

Ashlee grew up watching her dad have a powerful impact on peoples' lives and believes God uses her husband to do the same on a global stage with music, however before agreeing to come on this episode, she wandered who would care about her story.  Well, we hope you will rally with us and show Ashlee a lot of love and support for being willing to share her story.  

 
"I wish I could be a fly on the wall in that person's life?"  
In many ways Ashlee is that fly on the wall in supporting her husband who is on the main stage touring with Maren Morris and has previously been on tours, records and stages with many of the top Country and Christian Music stars.  It's easy for someone to think she's crazy for not believing in her story.  However, when the music fades and the lights go out, normal life kicks in for us all and we need to hear how God works in Ashlee's story so we can learn and grow in our personal stories.  

She took a leap of faith in her 20's, overcoming a huge fear of what other people would think if she opened up about what was really going on.  This begins her journey with God and how He lifted what felt like the weight of the world on her shoulders.  Year's later, now married and a mother a two, Ashley is a reflection of God's promise to us all, that in this world we will have trouble, but take heart, I have overcome this world.  She has a beautiful heart and a powerful story.

Enjoy this episode!
Remember you have a story and it matters more than you know!!!
