Michael Tait and Wally Talk Race

Michael Tait, from the Newsboys, is always fun to have on the show.  We had goofed around for a bit but then we got into a serious conversation about the racial tensions we are experiencing today.  I truly think you will find his viewpoint refreshing and enlightening.  If you want to skip ahead to this part of the conversation it starts at (3:50).   … Continue reading

MercyMe Hits New Helium Highs

In honor of MercyMe’s new album, Inhale Exhale, we thought we would see just how high they could sing by inhaling some helium. Even when they are not sucking down helium, the guys in MercyMe are a lot of fun to hang out with.  We discussed their COVID break and why they made a conscious decision to do things a little different from other bands during this time. Here is the video we talked about… … Continue reading

As Believers Let’s Be Better

There is “fake news” from all sides on the internet and as believers it is easy to get offended by things making the rounds that seem to be infringing on our religious beliefs. However, before you just forward something on because it tells you to, make sure you do a little fact finding. Failing to do so only further entrenches the idea that we are all biased, agenda crazed, Christian conspiracy theorists. So why does… … Continue reading

Christy Nockels on Living Life with God Not Just for God

Betty Rock sat down with former Watermark artist, Christy Nockels, to talk about her new book called The Life You Long For.  After spending a large part of her professional career in ministry, Christy was starting to ask questions like, “What if hustling our way through life, doing a lot for God, is actually holding us back from what God truly wants from us?” This was Betty’s interview and I tried my best to not… … Continue reading

If This Makes You Gag it is Colton Dixon’s Fault

In honor of Colton Dixon’s amazing song “Miracles,” I came up with a little game for him to play called Miracles-Whip. We did a deeper dive with Colton. We talked some old American Idol and some serious God stuff, like when one of his twin daughters was born and was not breathing and how his faith carried him in that moment. We also got to the bottom of some rumors (I may or may not… … Continue reading

Monday School

Monday School is Wally’s chance to share what he learned at church and to prove he went.  Although ironically, this week he was traveling and did not go so, Betty Rock broke down the sermon. This week’s discussion: the Great Commission. … Continue reading

Tim Tebow’s New Child is a Children’s Book

Did you know Tim Tebow is dyslexic? I did not.  It was something new I learned about him in this conversation. Tim  is one of my favorite people to have on the show because he is beyond positive. Years ago he would have had a right to be bitter about how things went for him in the NFL, but he chose to rise above that and live out his faith in a way that matched… … Continue reading

Photo Op: Just the Two of US

Photo Op is where Wally makes us send him the last photo we took on our phones and tell us the story behind it. Which photo do you like the best?     My fur baby of 16 years, Clementine, passed away earlier this week. Feeling sad, I dug up this photo taken of us the first day I got her. She will be so missed.               You may… … Continue reading
