Candidates and Christianity

We recently had a lot of fun with Ed Martin unveiling his new coloring/comic book with the Phyllis Schlafly Next Generation Eagles.  So important to get the next generation involved!

 

Frequently, people ask if I plan to run for any public office again.  It’s a fair question, but I’m not sure our Country is in a place where the voters want Christians or Constitutionally minded people in office.  The masses that listen to the media and popular icons of the left demonstrate that adhering to the Constitution is not that important to the rank and file voters.  Our screams, “That’s not Constitutional!”, are often met with yawns and waves for us to move on to relevant information.

Most of you understand what’s at stake and I love constituents who are committed to Constitutional principles.  However, the hearts of voters need to change before we will see real change in our  Country. Continue reading

US Senate Candidate, Kristi Nichols

Play

We’re all in this together!  An election is right around the corner and we need to know what the candidates are thinking.  This show is a continuation of our efforts to probe the people who want to represent us in Washington DC.  You’re about to get an in-depth look inside the heart and mind of a candidate.

On today’s show, we interview US Senate Candidate, Kristi Nichols.  Kristi is a pastor of an inner city church and is going to explain why she’s running for the Senate.

Happy Father’s Day

This is me with the two best fathers in the world—my dad and my husband!

 

Without dads, our world would end.  (Same for mothers as well!)  One of the most treasured attributes in a father is faithfulness.  A godly man is the biggest asset to a family and country!  As we look around, one of the biggest problems precipitating the cultural decline is fatherlessness.   If you have a father, make sure you try to honor him this week.

This week on our show, we interview John Trent.  John is the author of the book, The Language of Love and is an expert on what it takes to put strong families back together.  He  grew up in a broken home and speaks out of personal experience based on much research.

My hope is that this show will encourage you to love your family members more deeply.  By having a functional family, you will honor God and play a role to stabilize our Country. Continue reading

John Trent – The Language of Love

Play

When it comes to communication, we all could use a little more help.  Did you ever wonder what all the great communicators have in common?  On our show we help you understand how you can become more effective at getting your message out to everyone in your path!

Today we get to talk with John Trent.  John  is the president of StrongFamilies.com and the author of many books, including the Language of Love.

US Senate Candidate, Courtland Sykes

Play

As a former candidate myself, I want to assure you that candidates like to be asked questions. That’s what they sign up for when they put their names on the ballot.   On today’s show you’ll  hear an insider’s glimpse into what makes a candidate tick.

The Governor and Christianity

I heard someone say, “I bet Peter Kinder regrets giving up his Lt. Governor office now.” He gave it up to run for Governor. Peter lost the primary, so Mike Parson won the open Lt. Gov office. Nobody could have predicted the new Governor wouldn’t last even 17 months. Yet, God still controls who goes where. Here is a picture of our new Governor, Mike Parson, getting sworn into office last Friday. There’s something special about swearing on a Bible. It is a statement that God will hold him accountable for whatever he does.

 

After last week’s resignation of our Governor, I posted this:  “I’m calling on all Christians to pray that Eric Greitens and his family will find Christ at the end of this mess.”

The responses that resulted gave me great insights into the thinking of most people in our culture today.  Many assumed he was a Christian because he claimed to be “a conservative”, (whatever that means) and a Republican.  Ha.

Some showed moral outrage, but others tried to shame those who were morally outraged.  Should one’s religion be a factor for serving in public office? Continue reading

How to Vet Candidates

 

This is me with my husband, Bernie and our son, Philip at the Hixson Middle School Pops Concert last week.  We were both in our High School bands, so it means
a lot to us to have a son in the band.  Although I am not running for anything myself, I have time to evaluate other candidates this election cycle.  Evaluating candidates is important too!

 

Frequently people ask for my thoughts on the US Senate race.  I was a judge at one of the candidate forums, but there’s always so much more we want to know.

As a former candidate myself, I want to assure you that candidates like to be asked questions.  If they don’t want to answer questions, they shouldn’t run for office.   Being a candidate means one must answer questions—a lot of questions!

Candidates should give out their phone numbers and tell us where they live.  If a candidate doesn’t want to share this information, that is a red flag that this person may be unqualified for office.  Being in office involves representing the people, which means we offer our constituents access to us. Continue reading

US Senate Candidate, Austin Petersen

Play

All candidates like answering questions.  And if they don’t, they shouldn’t be candidates.

On our show today we give you a glimpse into what makes a candidate tick.  You can learn a lot about a candidate by asking simple questions about his life, philosophy and thoughts.  You’re going to enjoy this show.

Today we get to talk with Austin Petersen.  Austin ran for the nomination for President of the United States in 2016 on the Libertarian Party and is currently running for the  Republican nomination to the US Senate in Missouri.  Welcome Austin!

Words and Deeds

Our Daughter graduated from High School this week.  Six kids down and one more to go!

 

Personal integrity is the only way our Country can work.  Companies make location decisions based on the quality of the workforce available.  The quality of the workforce has to do with the work ethic they possess.  It’s all about integrity.

What is the value of a word?  People used to buy real estate on just a handshake.  That standard isn’t recognized anymore.  A handshake means nothing in a court of law.  Yet, there is hope for the future if we want to reclaim the values that made our Nation strong. Continue reading

Charles Causey – Words and Deeds

Play

We’ve seen a lot of elected officials shame themselves when their words and deeds don’t match up.  On today’s show, we hear from a military man about the importance of fighting the terrorists in our personal lives that are destroying us from within.

On this episode, we interview Charles Causey.  Charles Causey is a recipient of the Bronze Star for his military service in Iraq. He is the author of several books, including the one we’re talking about today, Words and Deeds.  He formerly served at the Pentagon as a senior army chaplain for the chief of chaplains, and is currently stationed at Fort Dix, New Jersey, as garrison chaplain.
