Power of a Praying Mom

One of our favorite kinds of stories on Kankelfritz and Friends is a redemption story and this one came about because a mom refused to stop praying for her son. Thank you, Jesus! We hope this encourages you to keep praying for that one person in your life to come home to the Kingdom!

Secret Netflix Movies!

Wanna save some money at the RedBox this summer? Try THIS!

Did you know you can request your favorite movie to be made available on Netflix?

It’s true.

Netflix has a secret requests page that lets you order shows and movies that are not in their library.

The feature is hidden within Netflix’s help section, meaning most users have never heard of it.

Netflix does have guidelines that point out that some of these requests can’t be granted due to licensing issues.

The feature can also be accessed at https://help.netflix.com/en/titlerequest?ui_action=title-suggestion-quicklinks.

Can a healthy 2018 be yours? YES!

Today we spoke with fitness trainer and national health coach Peter Neilsen!

Here are three simple tips he shared to help you get on track for 2018:

1-Drink your water! All your water. It will help your body use the nutrients you give it through healthy meals and supplement choices.

2-Peter suggests that we avoid processed grains (like white flour and rice) and choose a whole grain instead.

3-MOVE your body! Even light exercise, like a brisk walk can make a big difference if done with consistency.

Peter suggests 5 times per week!

And don’t forget, the most important tip: Care for your SOUL! Health is an inside job.

For more tips, check out Peter at his Peter’s Principles and catch him on Family Life Radio!

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.
