I Miss You!

Dear Mornings listeners and viewers:

It sure has been nice to hear from so many of you on Facebook and through my email. Thank you for your prayers and concern.

Most of you know by now that the December shows are recent "best of's" originally airing from August-October, and that Larry and I are in "career transition."

While I'm not sure where we will land, I know God has a plan for all of us, and that many North Americans are going through trying times right now. I will be praying that you have a special Christmas with loved ones and that 2010 is a great year for you.

And if you listened to "Mornings" for any length of time, you know that I'm pretty excited about The University of Texas Longhorns being in the national championship. I made my husband promise that if we get jobs before the end of December, we'd go to Pasadena on January 7th!

Hook 'em horns and God bless you,

Animal House

We sure had fun recently when Singer Laura Bryna brought her birds and Tim Link, the Pet Communicator, joined us on set. What were those birds thinking? Tim said they sure love Laura!

Pastor Brad Strand Visits Mornings!

Texas Pastor Brad Strand, Larry and me!

We were honored to have Pastor Strand in our studio today. He spent 33 years and 30,000 hours developing The Strand Study Bible. It weighs nearly five pounds, has extensive maps, color-coding and mini-series to help people live their lives better. This would be a great addition to any library or a great gift for any student of the Bible. For more information, check out
