Jesus in an Elevator. Going up? |  | SOS Radio
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
When my 3 year old son Joshua made it to the bottom of the giant sequoia tree, his eyes were wide as he looked up to the top branches, hanging hundreds of feet in the air.
 
With an excited shout, he said, "Dad! I'm gonna climb this tree!"
 
I laughed, and appreciated his ambition.
 
Before I became a Christian, I used to think I could live a 'good' life and eventually climb my way to heaven.

I’m blessed to have a view of a mountain from my bedroom window.

I was filled with awe and excitement the first time I saw it… but as I became accustomed to my new home, novelty turned to familiarity. What was once a mighty, majestic mountain had quietly turned into something else.

Prayer: Am I doing this right? |  | SOS Radio

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Have you ever been asked to pray for somebody out loud, in front of people? Kinda puts a little pressure on, doesn't it? It's easy to want to sound spiritual, reverent, and articulate. Not just for God, but for the people that are listening.

I'll admit that there have been times when I'm in a group, and we're all taking turns praying out loud. When my turn is next, I'm not sure that I'm even really listening to what the person next to me is saying. I'm thinking about what I'm going to say. Don't want to do it wrong, you know. I have some friends that outright refuse to pray out loud. They are embarrased.

I’ve noticed something about my 5 month old daughter, Avery. 
 
She’s totally cool with being herself.
 
In a very deep sense, she is completely comfortable in her skin. She inherently accepts herself, because she’s never had any reason not to.

My three-year old son Joshua made it past the gate and tumbled down the stairs the other day, bumping his head on the way down.
 
He turned out okay (nothing a bag of frozen peas and a little ice cream couldn’t fix) – but as I was driving him to the hospital, I realized something. 
 
There had probably been a dozen things that I had been worried about over the course of the day. Mostly little stuff, and a couple of bigger things.

Dan Young- Afternoons on SOS Radio (4pm-7pm Pacific Time/5pm-8pm Mountain Time)

 

1. I have not seen ‘Frozen.’ Every other member of my family has. I’m not avoiding it or anything, it just hasn’t happened.

2. I once sang the national anthem to open a Cardinals baseball game at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

3. I’ve jumped out of an airplane 20 times in my life.

4. I use toothpaste that is flavored like licorice and contains blue-green algae.

5. I met my wife at a radio broadcast. I still have a photo of our very first conversation, which was an on-air interview.

Just Moved!

SOS Radio

Our family just moved to town from Prescott, Arizona! We're really excited to join the team at SOS Radio. Plus we're finally to the "unpacking" stage. 

Packing a moving truck: a strange game of Tetris where the winner gets to keep all their own stuff unbroken!
