A Very Messy Christmas: He Still Wants Us

Turns out, you can’t change a baby’s diaper from ten feet away. I tried. I was a new dad, had never changed a diaper in my life, and had a serious gag reflex. I loved our little boy, but… that’s disgusting. I didn’t want to see the dirty diaper or smell it or touch it. Gross. It would have been easy to steer clear of the whole process, save for one thing: I loved my… … Continue reading

Forgiveness in an Age of Anger | Brant’s Ted Talk

She was attacked, and we couldn’t seem to get the police to do anything about it. The attacker still walks around our neighborhood. We’ve contacted police repeatedly with photos, descriptions of the assailant, even his address. He threw a hammer at her, then attacked her in broad daylight. She’s… … Continue reading

In Defense of Christian Radio

This is a thing I just wrote about a common complaint we get. Look, I get it. “Christian radio” is many things, and not all of them great. I’ve worked in different radio formats, but have spent most of my time on Christian pop stations. I’ve seen all the sides of it. I know the artists, the record companies, the other Christian radio hosts, and the listeners. We’re all messed-up in our own uniquely horrible… … Continue reading

Help! What Does This Sign Even Mean?

Need your help. My friend Dale came across this sign in a hospital in his travels. We’re trying to figure out what it means. Please offer your own interpretation. Here are some of my faves so far from my Twitter account: “Frisbees are placed on patient for health reasons. You will be unable to remove them” “Do not smother the patients. If you do pray for forgiveness as soon as you are done” “Even though… … Continue reading

One of Our Littlest Listeners is in Heaven Today

Something Brant wrote in honor of a loyal listener: One of our littlest listeners died this morning – Easter morning. Her name is Victoria, or “Tori”, for short. She loved her giraffe. She had wonderful parents. Brennan and Lesa knew they would not have her long. So they made a “bucket list” for her, which included meeting us. This just happens to be the single biggest honor we’ve ever received. She had Krabbe Leukodystrophy, and… … Continue reading
