Do you want to really know that even when life doesn't seem to be going as it should, God is with you? Are you longing for courage for today? Musician and artist Ron Block chats with Ken and Deb about his new book of meditations that take a deep plunge into the beauty and richness of the Gospels. Block will address a few of the mistaken ideas about God and our relationship with Him that may be holding us back from hopeful living today.
Ron Block has been banjoist guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for Alison Krauss & Union Station since 1991. He wrote many of the band's gospel songs: "There is a Reason," "In the Palm of Your Hand," "Jesus, Help Me to Stand," and his playing has been featured on albums by Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Fernando Ortega, and others. He's received 14 Grammy Awards for his work with Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, and the O Brother, Where Are Thou soundtrack, and received a Dove Award for his song "A Living Prayer." He married Sandra in 1988 and they live in rural Tennessee. They have two grown children, Ethan and Erica.
