The Story Project - Carrie
In October 2007, Carrie's one year-old daughter started having severe medical problems. From May 2009 to the present, they have been going to Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. During all of those drives, they always listen to WGTS 91.9. Her daughter had 9 surgeries in the first five years of her life for one rare thing after another. She lived in severe pain for the first years of her life. Listening to WGTS 91.9 while driving to countless medical appointments, countless medical tests, surgeries, and hospital stays, brought hope and encouragement to Carrie's family.
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.
Brennan Wimbish fills in for Jerry and Blanca this week, and sits down with Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy. Tony and his wife Lauren co-authored "Uncommon Marriage: What We've Learned About Lasting Love and Overcoming Life's Obstacles Together" and offer tips on how to build a successful marriage.
The Story Project - John
John's wife of 31 years passed away just a little over a year ago. There's an old radio she got at an auction sitting on the end of their kitchen counter. When she was with him, it played WGTS 91.9 continuously. Until recently, he hasn't had the courage to turn it on. But when he turned it on, instead of the sadness he feared, he felt comfort listening all day as he was preparing the house for Thanksgiving company. He just can't explain how much it seemed to turn his house back into a home.
