Today in the Word is 31 years old! This devotional, authored by Moody Bible Institute faculty, has a new theme and unique study each month. Jamie Janosz joins Mornings with Kelli and Steve to re-introduce us to the devotional and 2 minute radio episodes.
Every weekday on Mornings with Kelli and Steve, we dig into a portion of God's holy Word, and apply it to our lives. Throughout the morning, we continually opened our Bibles to Isaiah 41:10. We all have fears, but when we interject faith into our fear, turning our control over to the Father, God yeilds His power into our lives.
