Artist Jordan Feliz  is out on the Winter Jam tour but took time out of his busy day to check in with Family Life Radio! Among the things on his mind: Family, Easter and… FASHION? Yep!

New Year, Newly Recreated

Invite God to Re-Create You

Every year it’s the same thing. “I’m gonna lose weight .. or get out of debt .. or have better relationships.” And every year you reach a point when the resolve fades, and perhaps you even lose hope that you’ll ever succeed. Author Nika Maples was on that same yo-yo, until God stepped in.

One day I just felt God saying to me You can’t say crucifixion didn’t fix you.”

Nika tells Peter and Shannyn she’s found there’s a connection between God’s original creation and how He re-creates us.

 

2 Corinthians 5 :17 says “…if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here!” Nika says “Just like God said in Genesis 1 ‘Let there be light’, I said ‘God speak into my darkened heart.'”

Change in our heart and spirit is not only possible, it can be permanent – but in order to succeed we’ve got to be intentional about it. Dr. Randy Carlson, host of Intentional Living, lists 10 InTENtionals for Growing Thru Change, including to:

Expect stress from it; Measure it; Look beyond it.

A Different Kind of Christmas // Mark Schultz

No time of the year leans as heavily on tradition as Christmastime, but every once in a while it’s good to inject a few new things into your celebration of Jesus’ birth. Word Records’ artist Mark Schultz & his wife Kate took that to heart this year – adopting a new little baby girl from China!

Mark tells P&S “Yeah .. she looks nothing like me, which is a good thing!”

Kate is an OB/GYN, & Mark says “She saw a little Chinese baby running down the aisle at church one Sunday & said ‘We gotta have one of those.'” God tells us in his word we’re adopted. Mark was adopted when he was just 2 weeks old, & says “adoption is a blueprint for what we’re supposed to do here on earth.

 

Wouldn’t It Be Great to Get a Do Over?

Our Amazing God is the king of second chances! God can redeem you. Nothing you do can take away His love for you, when you come to Him. He is patient while you learn your need for Him. Family Life Radio member Chuck shares his testimony.

But God will redeem me from the realm of the dead; he will surely take me to himself. Psalm 49:15
