Sometimes no matter how hard you try a dating or marriage relationship ends. Sometimes it is out of fault or times it is "just one of those things" that happens. What is the best way for you as a Christian to deal with the loss and pain? Kurt recently got a letter from a listener who is asking similar questions after the end of a relationship. Kurt and our callers share their experiences and wisdom on this very common challenge in our lives.
The stories are all over the Bible, but in our "advanced" modern times it is hard for even Christians to believe that God still speaks and guides His people through dreams. But you may change your mind about that after you listen to this very interesting program as Kurt and our callers dig deep and share amazing stories from their lives where God used their dreams to communicate, encourage and challenge them in their walk of faith.
If you could create a time capsule for somebody in future generations to find, what would you put in it? A recent story about an unexpected find during a bathroom renovation sparked the idea for this conversation.

We cover alot of ground on this thought provoking end of the week conversation.
A new report has revealed some surprising statistics regarding the number of people who leave their jobs for better pay and benefits. We all want to improve our lot in life but sometimes for the believer leaving a job is not about more money but it is because God has led you to take a step of faith and leave for something better He has for you. On this edition of Kurt Goff Live, Kurt and our callers share their stories of leaving jobs, moving cross country, etc. because God told them to do so. They also share lessons they learned through those experiences that we all can benefit from when God calls us to take a step out in faith.
What people call near death experiences or NDE's have filled television news screens and book stores shelves across the countries for more than a decade. Is this all a hoax or could there ACTUALLY be occasions where God pulls back the curtain and allows HIS children to experience the world after death is poweful and life changing ways. As always Kurt puts Jesus Christ at the center and the Bible as our guide as we delve into the challenging topic and our callers share their own near death experiences.
It's time to talk scripture and the power of God's word to touch lives in unexpected ways.

Many people have them but they are not quick to talk about them very often: phobias. Kurt has claustrophobia brought on by a traumatic event from childhood and during this very interesting conversation you will hear people share their stories of other phobias they live with, some them quite surprising, and how God has helped them cope with these lifelong challenges.
Once again our nation has celebrated the gift of freedom that has been hard won over many years.

Nothing happens by accident or coincidence or random chance in the life of the Christian. God is always working behind the scenes, moving the pieces and orchestrating the story. And what my at times seem like random events in reality are carefully plotted chapters in the story that he is writing in your life. Sometimes it is not until that particular chapter is over that you can look back and see His hand at work, connecting the dots and revealing the complete picutre. Kurt and our callers explore this wonderful aspect of the Christian life in this edition of Kurt Goff Live.
