My Top 5 Favorite Christian Broadcasts/Podcasts

Technology has given us one gift and that is being able to hear the word of God everyday, anytime and anywhere! I listen to broadcasts and podcasts daily.  I love how they recharge me spiritually and keep me uplifted. Here are some of my favorite broadcasts that I encourage you to listen to when you get a chance!

Visit his website and dive into all the rich resources In Touch offers. Take time to listen and watch the television and radio broadcasts, and don’t forget to sign up for the free monthly magazine.

Beth Moore on Life Today- Who doesn’t love Beth Moore’s style of witty honest teaching of the bible? I could listen to her all day and sometimes on a Sunday it’s me, Beth and a cup of coffee. Every Wednesday you can tune into Beth Moore on Life Today and watch her previous shows in the archives, it’s a real treat.

A Few of My Favorite Things

 I love thrift stores. There is a great thrift store by my house that I often frequent. I actually bought much of what I needed for Anya’s tea party there. My latest finds was that cute green mail holder and the little brown cup. All for $2.75! I’m going to put flowers in the cup and I’m still deciding on how I’m going to use the mail holder.
