The Story Project - The Phoenix Family
They dreamed of being foster parents and helping children in need. However, God had something in mind for the Phoenix family beyond their dreams. And the path wasn't always easy.

The Story Project - Brian and Jennifer
Brian wanted to propose to his girlfriend, Jennifer, and he wanted to make it big. Since she is a huge Newsboys fan, he contacted WGTS 91.9 and asked the station for our help. We were more than happy to be part of the celebration! This is the story of the proposal that happened at a special backstage meet and greet event right before DC Fest 2013.
Rik Swartzwelder - Director of "Old Fashioned"
Old Fashioned is a movie that is being called the anti-50 Shades of Grey--a beautiful picture of romance based on respect and honor. And it releases the same weekend. Jerry and Blanca sit down with its director and lead actor, Rik Swartzwelder, about how "old-fashioned" values are counter-cultural, and the discussion he hopes to start as a result.
The Story Project - Carrie's Husband
Carrie's husband is an Air Force pilot and he deployed in May 2013. Originally the deployment was supposed to be for seven months but was extended to 10 months (300 days). It's the longest deployment since they've had children. Their children are 9 and 7 years old, and they have really missed their daddy. But her husband has been listening to WGTS 91.9 overseas, and it has helped connect them despite the distance, knowing that he is listening to the same radio station that they are.
The Story Project - Daniel
Daniel was out of a job, and eventually found one out of state (in Michigan) and had to be there during the week and come back home on weekends to be with his wife. As you can imagine, it was very difficult for them, until he put a prayer request on WGTS 91.9's Prayerworks about finding a job closer to home. Almost immediately, he got responses that people were praying for him. Several days later he got an offer for a job here in DC area and he's so excited.
