Memorial Day

Do we observe Memorial Day?


When I was younger (and smaller) I don’t remember celebrating Memorial day very much. I think I always got a day off school. In the summer movie season, Memorial Day starts it off. Get ready for Dwayne “The Rock” to kick some… kicking places and to jump from a crane to an open window. Get ready for Tom Cruise, at age 55, to get beat up and run over, and still get the bad guy.

But lately, it seems that there are some good Memorial Day PSAs, TV ads, radio spots, etc. I am glad. I did not realize the sacrifice that we honor this day. And it has always been in my face, yet, until years ago, I was blind to it.

My father lost his two brothers to WWII. One died. One came back and eventually died from his damage. What do we do with this? No wonder my Grandma used to practically squeeze my Charmin out whenever I would sit with her and listen to her stories. If I would have been able to recognize her grief, I would have probably offered up myself for more squeezing.

We have been in a perpetual war for really a couple decades now.

Why can’t we win this? I believe I know, but that is for another day. However, we understand war, we understand heroes because our sons, daughters, Moms, dads, and co-workers are actively making this same kind of sacrifice that Grandpa did. We had a little peace there… whether you like it or not, the face I can put on it is Ronald Reagan. Could it be that he understood the evils of war and knew how to keep us out of it?

OK. So I must say “Thank You” to that funny guy for keeping me out of war. I must thank my uncles and my friends, and all who stand in front of the danger that wants to make it to my doorstep – but it does not.

Thank you to everyone who gave their own life for mine and for my family members’ lives. You are the friends who have shown a Christ-like example. You cared. You committed. I cannot let myself ever forget.

May you rest in peace. Thank you deeply.

Note: Please list the special people in your life who have given their lives in service to you and your country.

Finding Tallahassee Christian Programs Designed to Help Youth


Helping Tallahassee’s Youth

In today’s society, it seems as if many of our youths are having difficulties at home and at school.

There are a number of different reasons for these problems, but many devoted Christians believe it is due to a lack of support and faith. If you are one of those individuals, you may want to consider donating your time or at least your money to help the youths of Tallahassee in need.


When it comes to helping youths in need, you may want to examine Christian youth organizations.

Christian youth organizations are ones that focus on helping youths and youths alone. These types of organizations and programs are nice, as many place most of their focus on adults. It is important to remember that if America’s youth, especially those in need, aren’t reached at an early age, you may simply end up helping them out later on in life.

As you likely already know, Christian youth programs come in a number of different formats.

For instance, there are a number of youth programs that operate on the local level, as well as those that operate nationally and online. While there are a number of benefits to using the internet to reach out to youths in need, as you are often able to reach more individuals, you should also know that there are a number of benefits to first focusing on your local community. These benefits may include a reduction in violence or an increase in graduation rates or an increase in the number of students who attend college.


When looking to donate your time, your money, or other goods to a local Christian youth program, you may first want to examine all of your options.

For starters, you may want to speak with your local churches, as many run youth related programs. These programs may be summer programs or even weekly programs. Many churches need volunteers to serve as mentors or chaperones for trips. You may also see a need for donated supplies, such as school supplies, craft supplies, or sports equipment.

Even if your local churches do not run or operate their own Christian youth programs, they may be able to help point you in the direction of other programs and organizations that do need your assistance.

This is most commonly seen with youth establishments, also commonly referred to as youth centers. In towns and cities all across America, youth centers are increasing in popularity, as they are in great need. If you have a nearby youth center, even if that center does not have a direct Christian link, you may want to offer your services. In addition to volunteering much needed money or supplies, you can offer to teach Christianity classes.


When examining a number of different local Christian youth programs and organizations, it is important to choose the one or ones that can benefit the children the most.

This is important, as you will want to make sure that your donations are put to good use. On the other hand, if you are looking to volunteer, you may want to offer your services to programs or organizations that may be struggling. Many times, a fresh set of eyes and new ideas are needed. Without the proper amount of help, many Christian youth programs would have to shut down. This is an event that could be dangerous and possibly even deadly for many of today’s youths.

Here’s what I need you to do.

Share your recommended ministry for the Tallahassee Community. Comment below and list one or two. Wouldn’t it be great if lives are changed due to your help?

Free Book Friday – The Founding Conservatives

History For The Taking

Thank you to those who have shared our Free Book Friday posts. Keep up the good work.

This is just a simple way to give to the community and, in the process, get the word out that we are here in Tallahassee.

The Free Book Friday prize this week is:

The Founding Conservatives By David Lefer

The founding conservatives book

Here’s a little blurby thing from Amazon:

“According to most versions of history, America’s founders were united in their moderate political philosophy. But in fact the Revolution was nearly derailed by extremists who wanted to transform the entire society. If not for a small circle of conservatives who kept radicalism in check and promoted capitalism, a strong military, and the preservation of tradition, our country would be vastly different today.

…David Lefer provides an insightful and gripping account of the birth of American conservatism and its effect on the earliest days of our nation.”

So, whether you are getting over your last tea party or you just got back from putting your John Hancock on a check to the powdered wig society, this is so worth the read.

What’ya gotta do? Just let me know your favorite patriot below. And that can be wide open, in the sense that you can pick the era. Just know that ridiculous answers like “Mr. Ed” will be accidentally deleted.

Let’s hear it for the patriots! What’ya got? Enter below for a chance to win.

I leave you, my friend with this awesome interview with the big daddy, the author himself.




Q & A with Christian Fitness

Introducing Christian Fitness on Big Bend CTN TV


What was that spark of passion that got you started in producing Christian Fitness?


We had several pastor friends that were not able to completely fulfill the call of God on their lives because they weren’t physically able to do so. They wanted to do so much more for God but they lacked the physical stamina to do so. One of them asked if we could help them to get into better shape and from there we realized that instead of doing a personal training session, we should tape it and encourage all Christians to participate.

What encourages you to keep producing?


We are continually encouraged to produce new shows by the viewers. We receive phone calls, letters, emails and even in person comments asking for more help.  

Can you give me some quotes as a testimonial from  viewers?


“We praise God for your ministry”.

“I just wanted to let you know how much your teaching Philippians 4:8 blessed me today.  A reminder of how I need to watch what I think and I am the one who has to change it.  May God continue to Bless and Prosper you.

“I just wanted to say “thank you” for the wonderful show!  It is exactly what I’ve been looking for.  I tape the show and exercise while the kids are still sleeping in the morning.  The verses, nutrition tips….everything is wonderful.  I look forward to working out.
Thank you and May the Lord bless you!”

“My 14 year-old daughter, Rachael, and I exercised along with you today.  We did the workout using the bands.  Those squats got each our breathing rates up!”

“It is wonderful how God has gifted you with such a creative way to minister to people both physically and spiritually.”

“Bless the LORD, O my soul and all that is within me bless His holy name!!!  May He richly bless you and your ministry as well.”

“I wanted to write and say that your program is such a blessing. I just discovered your program not too long ago and started using it. It is awesome! I have a 16 year old son who is autistic and I homeschool him. Physical Education has ALWAYS been a struggle for him, he doesn’t enjoy it and he has some trouble following the movements required for fitness. Well I started him doing your program with me daily. He gets a great workout, he actually enjoyed it and your Bible verses help me to have a topic for our discussions about God and the Bible! I ask that God blesses you all and please do NOT ever take your program off the air! To God’s glory you are helping my son so much and it makes him more self confident and more able to reach out to others…Jesus Bless You… “

Theme verse?

Answer:  Our theme verse has always been III John 1:2

“Beloved I pray that in all things you may prosper, and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.”

We love this verse because it is about the spiritual growth and relationship with Jesus (soul prospering), and is also a prayer and declaration that all aspects of life, including physical health. Be prosperous.
