Deana of Michigan knows a lot about pain, suffering and death.
As a hospice nurse, she has walked alongside countless men and women in their final days — offering comfort, prayers and peace.
Yet, in this “valley of the shadow of death” Deana can say wholeheartedly, “I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).
The music YOU help provide gives Deana strength for each day.
“I grew up listening to Family Life Radio,” Deana shared. “My dad was a very godly man, and he lived his whole life for Jesus. He donated to Family Life Radio for as long as I can remember.”
As an adult, God put a calling upon Deana’s heart to be a nurse. “It's what I've been commissioned to do by God,” she says.
Yet, being face-to-face with death daily can take its toll. “The devil is always there, pulling at the strings and trying to manipulate me,” Deana said.
Thanks to you and others who give so generously to keep Family Life Radio on the air, Deana is able to draw on God’s strength, which sustains her in the darkness.
“Being able to turn on Family Life Radio on my way to and from work helps me stay closer to God,” she says. “It equips me for the hard day ahead and provides much-needed comfort at days’ end. Thank you to everyone who makes this possible.”
Join Dr. Randy and Donna Carlson for this unforgettable 7-day cruise.
The Intentional Living Cruise is a vacation intended for spiritual renewal and building lifelong memories and friendships. While at sea, you’ll enjoy times of worship and teaching on how the power of intentional living can bring hope, freedom and joy for each day and during each season of life. The wonder of God’s glorious creation, outstanding experiences and Christian fellowship await. Cabin availability is limited, so reserve yours today!
We Are Messengers
For the Irish band We Are Messengers, creating music involves more than just writing lyrics. It’s a special time spent with God crafting the words, rhythms and beats for songs.
Lead vocalist Darren Mulligan recently sat down with Family Life Radio’s Mike Kankelfritz and shared some of his thoughts about their new song, “Come What May.”
Darren said, “We’re in a season of weariness in the world right now. That’s just the truth.”
“I wanted to write a song that would say … Whatever it is you’re dealing with, whatever is at your door, come what may. God isn’t running away. He’s still on your side. He never leaves or forsakes you, and there is a rest for your weary soul.”
Tune into Family Life Radio to hear We Are Messengers’ “Come What May” and many other songs that will speak to your soul.

Our world today is being led astray in so many ways. But as Christians, the Good Shepherd calls out to us, leading and guiding us to green pastures and still waters of peace. All we have to do is listen for His voice and follow Him.
God speaks to us in many ways … in Scripture, through intuition (feelings or thoughts we must discern), through the wisdom of others (as long as it lines up with His Word) and during circumstances in our lives.
As we head into the new year, and as you seek to live intentionally for God, ask Him to speak to you. He is faithful! “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” (Jeremiah 33:3 ESV).
Tune into Intentional Living (Family Life Radio’s flagship program), as Dr. Randy Carlson, counselor and best-selling author, helps you turn your good intentions into reality and find hope for a better life in Christ.
Yet, there are still so many we need your help to reach with the music and messages that share God’s lasting, life-changing hope!
YOU can help lost and hurting men and women:
• Experience healing and new life.
• Discover the unfathomable depths of Jesus’ love.
• Learn of God’s unending hope.
