Life can get overwhelming. And periodically we share a short film that adds perspective to those very real moments we all face, reminding you there is hope through Jesus.

Words of Hope #21 - Backyard

There are things you can learn when you're willing to slow down and look up. Morning show co-host Blanca Vega shares what these last few months have taught her.

Words of Hope #20 - The Park

Has it felt as though the whole world is shifting around you this year? You're not alone. But morning show host, Jerry Woods, reminds you that even in these moments, there is one thing that never does change.

Words of Hope #19 - Charlie Brown

Sometimes it seems like our problems have no solution. During the pandemic, it feels like there's no end in sight and we have no options. Producer Spencer reminds you that with God, all things are possible, and finds a creative solution to a problem he's faced recently.

Words of Hope #18 - Storage

As Americans, we collect a lot of stuff. And when we run out of room, we pay other people to store our stuff! Last year alone, Americans spent $37 million on storage space. And it's so easy to do.

Jerry Woods asks this important question: "What are you storing up?" Will what you save collect dust and one day wither away? But Jerry shares these Words of Hope about a treasure where moths and rust do not destroy, and robbers can't steal. (Matthew 6:19-20) Where is your treasure and your heart?

 

Words of Hope #17 - Winter

There are signs that the seasons are changing. Leaves falling, colder and shorter days. For Becky, Winter has become one of her least favorite seasons.

Like the seasons, change can be difficult. And maybe there's a season you're not looking forward to...a teenager heading off to college, the health of an aging parent, or even fighting an addiction. Becky wants you to hold on to these words of hope: Remember how God has led you in the past, and how He gave you just what you needed in those situations.

Words of Hope #16 - Codebreakers

For many people, prayer is like a coded message. If you just use the right words, raise your hands the right way, pray enough times or in the right place...then maybe God will answer.

With help from the National Cryptologic Museum, Morning show host Jerry Woods explains why you know your message is getting through loud and clear when you pray.

Words of Hope #15 - Glassblowing

There is an incredible amount of heat that has to be applied to mold and shape a piece of glass. And just when you think the process is over - it has to go back into the heat for several more days to harden and protect it...so it doesn't break.

It's like that with us, too. There's a verse in Romans (Romans 5:3-4) that talks about rejoicing in your sufferings...knowing that it produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character produces hope. It's not an easy verse to embrace, because like most of us, we don't like pain.

Words of Hope #14 - Turn the Page

Some days, it feels like what's on the next page is too much for us to bear. It could be a change you weren't expecting; a marriage that is falling apart, a job you've lost, or that phone call that changes your entire life.

Johnny and Stacey share these Words of Hope that God is the author of every chapter in your life, so don't be afraid to turn the page.

Words of Hope #13 - Fishing

Fishing is a lot like waiting for God to show up during difficult times. You can do everything right and be prepared, but still you find yourself sitting and waiting.

Chaplain Kumar offers these words of hope to remind you that even while you're waiting, God is always with you. In fact, the silence you may be experiencing could be the hushed sound of God's arrival.

Words of Hope #12 - Bricks

We often measure our worth by what we do, and what we've accomplished. Our culture teaches us our value is based on how much money we make, how big our house is, or how many hours we put in at work.  

Morning show co-host Jerry Woods offers encouragement through Matthew 6:26: "Consider the birds. They don't plant or harvest, or store food in barns, for your Heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to Him than they are?"
