Show Summary
DVD #141000

What if as long as you can remember, you were told repeatedly you were worthless, a whore, and that you would amount to nothing? What if your father cursed the day you were born? What if that abuse wasn’t "only" verbal abuse but also physical and mental? How do you reconcile this childhood with yourself? With God?

We all face difficulties in our lives. The source of the pain may be different, but we all have the same opportunity to choose our response. Diann Hockenberry shares her story filled with Godly wisdom that has continued to guide her to victorious living. Yes, she did go back to confront her father. The events in her life caused my jaw to drop as I listened to this woman of faith and courage, who continues to overcome and live a life of freedom.

You, too, can experience this same freedom!

Get to Know Animal Control

Does God care about all of His creation? All we have to do is open His Word to clearly see that He does! It is with the loving heart of God that we offer this special show which is entirely dedicated to the Cumberland County Animal Control. Did you know that out of 180,000 cat and dog pets in our community, only about 5,000 are paying the $7 or $25 a year tax? The tax money not collected for just one year is between $1,225,000 and $4,000,000. Yes, that's millions of dollars that could be going directly to our local animal control per year!

Intimacy with God

When I was a teenager, I had a crush on a major league baseball player. I knew his favorite food, his favorite car, and where he went to school. I knew just about anything that was written about him. But, I didn't actually know him. Knowing facts about someone is different than actually knowing them. How many of us know things about God? We know that He is the Almighty Father, that He keeps His promises, He is Holy, and so much more. But, do we actually know Him? This program will help teach us how to develop a deep intimate relationship with God!

Have Peace in the Storms of Life

Who I Am in Christ: I Am Secure

How to Be Free Series:

When I was a teenager, I struggled in my belief that God loved me unconditionally. I knew in my mind that God loved me, but I based some of my beliefs on my feelings. I believed the lie that if I didn't feel loved by God then something must be wrong between us. Through that struggle, I came to the conclusion that we must know two things: 1) who we are in Christ and 2) learn how God truly sees us.

This Program:

On this program, we are going to learn some of the truths of who we are in Christ by understanding some of the ways we are Secure in Him! Come an be set free from living under the burden of lies that satan wants you to believe in your mind!

The Truth About God

In this program, we’re going to learn what these lies are and counter punch them with the truth. Get out your pens and get ready to live in the freedom of God!

Mood Disorders and the Christian

Mood Disorders often carry negative connotations. We often think these are crazy people walking the streets talking to themselves wearing worn out clothes. Today we want to offer some insight on this subject and how it affects many people you may know.

Often in the Christian community, people with these challenges are told to have more faith, or to pray more. Would we tell a diabetic to forget the insulin and have more faith that his body will just automatically create what it needs? Would we tell someone who needs glasses to walk around with blurry vision instead of equipping him with what his body needs?

Neither Suzann nor I are doctors. We are speaking today about a subject that is dear to Suzann’s heart because of personal experience. Maybe you’ve struggled with some similar issues, but didn’t know you needed help. If so, we encourage you to seek a medical professional.

Will You Become Bitter or Better?

Every single one of us can get snared in the trap of bitterness. It can begin as simply as a seed of anger from a disappointment in life that was never settled. Dump a little dirt on that seed from other painful experiences such as a bad health report, a job loss, shattered dreams, or broken friendships and full grown resentment is born.

Most of us have some kind of a root inside that needs to be cut off. If nothing else, just stop right now and tell God you want to get rid of it. He’s on your side and is waiting to help. One of my favorite people in the Bible is Joseph. I’ve always thought he was one of the most incredible humans to have gone through so many years of adversity and yet still remained optimistically faithful to God.

On this program, we will look at six clues from Joseph on how we can become Better, not Bitter!

Will You Become Bitter or Better?

Every single one of us can get snared in the trap of bitterness. It can begin as simply as a seed of anger from a disappointment in life that was never settled. Dump a little dirt on that seed from other painful experiences such as a bad health report, a job loss, shattered dreams, or broken friendships and full grown resentment is born.

Most of us have some kind of a root inside that needs to be cut off. If nothing else, just stop right now and tell God you want to get rid of it. He’s on your side and is waiting to help. One of my favorite people in the Bible is Joseph. I’ve always thought he was one of the most incredible humans to have gone through so many years of adversity and yet still remained optimistically faithful to God.

On this program, we will look at six clues from Joseph on how we can become Better, not Bitter!
