Peggy and Joe Martin describe their life’s journey from Korea to New York. From being a locksmith to a liquor store owner in Harlem to an apartment building owner to building schools in the Philippines. Don’t miss their journey of faith.
When bad things happen to people, it is easy for them to ask “WHY”. If they are Christians, they may ask why would God allow this to happen? They may not admit that they are mad at God or even realize that they are mad at God. Dr. Shinnerer, an anger management expert, addresses what happens when people are mad at God, how it affects you, and how to go from anger to acceptance.
Like many women, Judy Madsen Johnson has accomplished much for children and families. As a single Mom of five, Judy worked full time as an interior designer. Near her retirement, she became increasingly involved in ministries. Her involvement in the pro-life movement eventually led to fighting for the life of an unborn child on a sidewalk in Orlando and then being jailed for unlawful protesting only hours later. Soon after she was the named Plaintiff in the United States Supreme court case that challenged a restriction to speak to women on public sidewalks about safe alternatives to abortion.
Madsen versus Women’s Health Center (link below), Inc. doesn’t tell the whole story of Judy Madsen, however. During her twenty year involvement in the pro-life movement, she co-founded a ministry, The True Majority; Women Speaking for Women. She then put her public speaking experience and foreign travel interests to good use as a pro-life/pro-family advocate at UN. Conferences in Beijing, Istanbul, and New York City. She concurrently served on boards of directors with Frontline Outreach Ministry, an inner-city ministry of Orlando; Christian counseling ministries, and several others and made mission trips to Jamaica, Thailand, Republic of Belarus.
Although diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, she continues to write, speak and advocate for causes. She is currently raising money for pancreatic cancer research while promoting her latest and possibly last book, Fascinating Women, Living by Faith. Listeners can purchase all of her books on the links provided below including Stories from the Front Line, the Battle Against Abortion, Confessions of a Cheerful Giver; Joy Cometh in the Morning, the Joy Postle Blackstone Story.
Please pray for this remarkable woman as she battles end-stage pancreatic cancer and slides into home base following her life’s purpose and passion.

Lisa Sappia – an “ordinary” woman with a heart to serve
Lisa Sappia is a mother of three who as a teenager decided that the call on her life was to be an overseas missionary. Often people think of missionaries as somehow stronger, less vulnerable to normal fears, insecurities and problems that the rest of us face every day. Not true. Lisa authentically shares her mission in Paraguay and how her life follows the hills and valleys that all of us face regardless of what we do or where we live. If there is a difference between those who serve out of the country and those here, it is that they take less for granted and earnestly seek your prayers and encouragement to make it through every day. Her honest admissions about her life will inspire you that regardless of your circumstances or where you live, you can make a difference in other people’s lives.
