Radio has been around for years and is typically known for rolling down the car windows and turning up the volume to jamming music. Additionally, radio is a resource for daily news, sports and traffic reports.
It wasn’t until about 10 years ago that worldly stations started to fade from my radio as I discovered the depth of Christian radio.
Before traveling became our everyday lifestyle, I spent a few years in the Midwest and besides being a part of a local congregation, Moody Radio https://www.moodyradio.org/ was a large part of my spiritual resources. Tony Evans, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Janet Parshall are only a few of my favorites Moody has on their schedule.
As my husband and I are back in the state of Arizona for a brief visit between jobs I couldn’t help but remember back a few years to when I lived here consistently and worked for a large corporation. I used to sit in a cubicle all day working earnestly with my fingers steadily tapping away on the keyboard while focused intently on the computer screen to earn my pay. There was a couple hundred people on each floor of the buildings living out 40 hours a week in the same way. A massive number of keystrokes and an occasional phone ring would be the only sound heard if you didn’t bring your earphones for the purpose of being plugged into a device for your listening enjoyment. I chose to bring my earphones daily and connected myself to Family Life Radio http://www.myflr.org/# to spiritually fill my mind as I plugged away at my daily task. Their phrase “Intentional Living” still rings in my mind occasionally as life happens. When I think of FLR (Family Life Radio) I think of Dr. Randy Carlson, David Jeremiah and the morning show, Peter & Shannyn.
I enjoy the positive and true music played by both of these stations and the talk shows are fabulous, full of knowledge and wisdom. With technology today, we are blessed to be able to download apps on our phones and take these stations with us wherever we find ourselves as a way of being fed with morale, positive and spiritual goodness instead of worldly and carnal options. We, as Christians, are responsible for the information we allow in our minds.
I also like to be connected to the local communities that we travel to while we are in one location so as soon as we get to our next destination I push the “seek” button on our radios in search of local Christian stations. Sometimes, I find myself investing quite a bit of time getting connected to the different locations when we arrive.

Romans 8:5 – 6 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
