Hour 1: Will A.I. Replace Humanity?

If God already knows everything we need, why pray? Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about experiencing God more intimately.

Dr. James Spencer from the D.L. Moody Center will help us unpack Artificial Intelligence. James currently serves as President of the D. L. Moody Center, an independent non-profit organization inspired by the life and ministry of Dwight Moody and dedicated to proclaiming the gospel and challenging God’s people to follow Jesus.  In addition, he leads the Shine Bright Project which seeks to mobilize God’s people to be and make disciples. James is the author of Useful to God: Eight Lessons from the Life of D. L. MoodyThinking Christian: Essays on Testimony, Accountability, and the Christian Mind, and co-author Trajectories: A Gospel-Centered Introduction to Old Testament Theology.


Hour 2: Idols

Are there things, maybe even good things, that have become idols in our lives? Learn how we can recognize them, dismantle them and return our focus to intimacy with Christ. Steve explores an article by Cindi McMenamin titled "7 Ways to Find and Eliminate the "Golden Calf" in Your Life" and listeners weigh in on this important topic. 


Hour 3: Natalie Layne on Moody Tunes

Musician Natalie Layne joins Dawn and Steve in the Morning for Moody Tunes! 

Growing up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Natalie Layne was constantly surrounded by music. Her family instilled in her a love of music from a young age as she watched her mom sing and lead worship, and her dad play bass and trombone.  

Currently residing in Nashville, Natalie’s latest independent single “Love Me Back to Life” has gained millions of views on Instagram Reels and on TikTok where she has over 196,000 followers and 2.8 million likes on her videos. The single follows her 2021 Castles EP and 2020 independent debut Be Human which has garnered attention worldwide. The music led to opening concerts for Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, and We the Kingdom, as well as sharing stages at festivals with Steven Curtis Chapman, Mandisa, and Crowder.

Playing in several Nashville-based R&B and jazz bands, Natalie graduated with a Master’s Degree in Commercial Piano from Belmont University where she also taught Fundamentals of Music classes.  In December 2022, Natalie signed an exclusive recording and publishing contract with Centricity Music, and her label debut is currently slated for fall 2023.
