The 5 p.m. Eastern broadcast by Glenn Beck has been wonderfully uplifting lately. You can watch the shows on TheBlaze.com, or on YouTube or download The Glenn Beck Podcast from several podcast outlets for your listening pleasure.
Each interview is fascinating. I feel better educated, enlightened, empowered and inspired as Glenn interviews each of these amazing men and woman.
As I listen and learn I am reminded of a quote by the late Neal A. Maxwell:
“How can you and I really expect to glide naively through life, as if to say, ‘Lord, give me experience, but not grief, not sorrow, not pain, not opposition, not betrayal, and certainly not to be forsaken. Keep from me, Lord, all those experiences which made Thee what Thou art! Then, let me come and dwell with Thee and fully share Thy joy!’ ” — Neal A. Maxwell
There are solutions to every challenge. None of us are exempt from and truly we can learn through our trials and tribulations, or through those of others, that in our extremities we can come to know God.
Being less on social media has given me more opportunities to read and to watch The Blaze or listen to it in the background during my day. I usually have The Blaze on most of the time anyway however, not being distracted by social media has allowed me to really listen to it during the day.
Pat Gray Unleashed is a favorite! As the Morning Guy I love hearing him when I wake up. I am thrilled that CRTV’s Steve Deace is now a crossover show on The Blaze. Deace is on after Glenn Beck Radio so the line up is really working for me.
Oh, if only he could hear me screaming what I know through the television screen. The Scorecard is so my friend when it comes to calling out alleged Republicans in Congress. And I really like to use it when Military people run for office, as though their military service makes them more worthy to sit in the House or Senate.
I am right there with you Steve. Great shows this week and I look forward to more to come. Thanks for talking about the things that matter to me.
In today’s current political climate there is a revival of sorts going on in the Conservative movement. It reminds me of the Second Great Awakening, where churches popped up on every corner clamoring for members to be baptized in a particular congregation. So when a new friend asked me about my thoughts on where to participate and donate to help the conservative vision it seemed like posting here was a good place to start.
Often I give to the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) Candidates directly:https://www.senateconservatives.com/racesI know SCF vets those they endorse. If a candidate lies to them and votes contrary to conservative principles, they revoke support for that candidate. That is why I check to see who’s who and to support those candidates in particular. Jim DeMint started SCF. It is a consistently conservative organization.
Currently I am donating to Conservative Partnership Institute (CPI) because it seems like Jim DeMint understands what needs to be done. I do so waiting to see what good he is bringing about. He is working to unite an army of activists in supporting honorable men and women. As CPI bears good fruit, I will be increasing that donation.
As a Heritage Action Sentinel, my donations there began slowly and to be honest, my donation is embarrassingly minimal.
By subscribing to Glenn Beck’s The Blaze and Mark Levin’s CRTV, I feel like my time and money is well spent being well educated about the things that matter most. I really believe in Glenn’s vision and am looking forward to increasing donations to his company, MercuryOne.org.
A few years ago I decided to check myself from getting sucked into funding every good cause. There are many wonderful causes, groups, and sincere people doing marvelous things. It was overwhelming. Therefore, I prayerfully made a conscious decision to reduce and simplify my life, and to know where to best donate. In order to focus on what matters most to me, I choose to give more money to a few organizations.
One of the great things about Honey-do is he cannot stand to pay anyone for something he can do himself. And he really cannot stand to call anyone to do something if he has not gone at it to see if he can do it first. It has been a blessing and a curse over the years, so you can imagine how thrilled I am that today it was a blessing! It was a savings of $399 because Honey-do was ableto fix the washer.
One thing that I truly appreciate about Honey-do is he is educated and skilled. He grew up with parents who lived by the adage, Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. Over the years my Honey-do has saved us thousands of dollars because of his ability and desire to learn how to build and fix things.
“The mikeroweWORKS Foundation started the Profoundly Disconnected® campaign to challenge the absurd belief that a four-year degree is the only path to success. The Skills Gap is here, and if we don’t close it, it’ll swallow us all. Which is a long way of saying, we could use your help… “
Rewatching the Mike Rowe conversation on The Best of Beck at TheBlaze.com really made me thankful for the gifts and talents of Honey-do, and for his love for the principle of work.
Here is the link to the story about the Rowe/Beck conversation from October 23, 2013:
Having missed the announcement Monday, it came as a surprise that Dana Loesch is not renewing her contract with The Blaze. It was wonderful to see Glenn Beck show up for her last few moments on her last show today, and witness their tender exchange.
How totally rockin’ it was to see her as Darth Vaderess:
What a great team of people Glenn has put together and how lovely to see him let people go, with joy – though bittersweet, so they can spread their wings. Today’s show was a testament to the tenderness of hearts and cameraderie at The Blaze.
Best wishes, Dana! Look forward to your January revelation of plans for 2018. Until then, God Bless you and yours! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.
