Hour 1: Business as a Calling

Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about how calling out to God in our distress brings Him glory.

Also, Steve talks with Derick Masengale from Market Maker Ministries about his book Business as a Calling: Bringing Your Whole Self (Body, Soul, and Spirit) to Work.

A graduate of the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering, Derick spent over thirty-five years working in the engineering and business technology consulting fields. During his career, he has been blessed with opportunities to launch Space Shuttles, lead business and technology transformation programs, and lead an organization of over 5,000 people with revenues of over one billion dollars annually. During his successful career, he studied to understand how to marry his spiritual journey with his professional journey. Derick put together a ten-part class at his church to share what he had learned with other professionals who had similar questions about marrying their faith with their careers. From that class, he penned his book Business as a Calling, Bringing Your Whole Self (Body, Soul, and Spirit) to Work to help professionals navigate their spiritual and professional journeys.


Hour 2: Raising Kids to Follow Christ

Steve welcomes Lee Ann Mancini to discuss her book Raising Kids to Follow Christ: Instilling a Lifelong Trust in God. Lee Ann emphasizes that our children need "heart change," not just behavioral change. This parenting tool goes beyond surface-level advice and provides a blueprint for teaching children essential Christian principles, enabling them to navigate a bond with their heavenly Father.

Lee Ann is the founder of Raising Christian Kids, Inc. and host of a podcast with the same name. RCK offers resources and a "Tips from the Experts" video series. Her mission is to equip and empower ministry leaders, parents, grandparents, teachers, and all who are raising the next generation to have a strong foundation in Jesus. Lee Ann is an award-winning Christian children’s author and executive producer of the animation series, Sea Kids, which can be viewed on Answers TV, PureFlix, Right Now Media, and SeaKidsTV. She is also an adjunct professor at South Florida Bible College & Theological Seminary.


Hour 3: Q&A With Dr. Michael Rydelnik

Do you have questions about the Bible? Dr. Michael Rydelnik will join Dawn and Steve in the Morning to take questions from listeners! Dr. Michael Rydelnik is a professor of Jewish Studies at Moody Bible Institute and the Bible teacher on Moody Radio's Open Line.

To wrap up today's show, David Harms with India Partners will share an update about this incredible ministry that rescues children from India's red-light district. India Partners is an international and humanitarian organization providing life-changing care to children and families living in extreme poverty in India. For over 35 years, India Partners has helped to meet the needs of people suffering without food, education, shelter, medical care, and more.
