Operation Christmas Child Collection

It’s Operation Christmas Child time at Moody Radio Quad Cities! With your donation of school supplies, hygiene items, and small toys, boys and girls around the world will not only receive some needed humanitarian aid, but also the message of God’s love for them and their family.

Ken and Deb will broadcast on location at Corem Deo Bible Church and highlight this ministry that impacts millions of children every year.

Walking with Jesus on Campus

We’ve all heard stories of students who went off to college and ended up walking away from the faith. Although we often hear those kinds of stories, there are also students whose college experience becomes a time of rich and radical encounters with Jesus. What make the difference? We are going to explore that question and hear some of the truths that can transform college for the Christian as we hear from Stephen Kellough, a former chaplain at Wheaton College, on Thursday’s Ken and Deb in the Morning.

Bless Your Pastor

Did you know that 60 percent of pastors receive no retirement, health care, or employee benefits from their church, and half of all pastors make less than $50,000 dollars per year? With these statistics it’s no wonder that 90 percent of pastors feel financial stress! On Thursday’s program we are going to hear about a new nationwide effort to Bless Your Pastor with Brian Kluth. Brian will share practical ways that you can bless your pastor and church staff not only in October, but all year long.

Morning Devotional

Ken's morning devotional comes from Henry T. Blackaby and Richard Blackaby's  "Experiencing God Day-by-day: Devotional"

Empty Nest, Full Life

You’ve just dropped your youngest child off at college and you’re wondering, now what? You remember “those days” with not a moment to yourself and now you’re wishing for one more of “those days” back. Being an empty nester is like being on a seesaw with grief on one end and delight on the other, going up and down as you adjust to a new normal. If that’s the season you’re in, Wednesday’s conversation is for you. Ken and Deb will visit with Jill Savage about being an empty nester and how you can discover God’s best for this next chapter.

Morning Devotional

Ken's morning devotional comes from Paul Tripp's Wednesday Word. The devotional is titled "Living Your Best Life

What Does Praising God Mean?

What does praising God mean? The Bible tells us over and over again that we are to praise the Lord. Why is this practice so important, where does praise come from, and what are the results of praise? Pastor Ed Hedding will be in studio Tuesday to walk us through what scripture says about praising God, what it looks like for us today and the part it plays in the future.

Furnish Out

Would you be interested in furnishing your home in a way that helps orphan children in China? Tuesday morning we will hear about Furnish Out. Furnish Out sells quality furniture from artisans in China and uses the proceeds to benefit orphans in China through China Hope.  Carrie Pashke will share how God brought two of her passions together to help special needs children in China.

Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families

Raising children with special needs brings a new set of challenges to parenting. In addition to the normal parenting responsibilities there are more doctor appointments, therapists, outside caregivers, educators, and caring for other children. With all these demands, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and put the love between husband and wife on the back burner. Dr. Gary Chapman and Jolene Philo have joined forces to share how to apply the five love languages to caregiving families. Jolene Philo will offer simple and effective ways of filling a spouse’s love tank as you minister to the special needs in your family.

Making Children Mind

As the new school year begins, we’ll get a parenting pep talk with Dr. Kevin Leman on Monday’s show. Before the stress of homework and bedtime battles, get your dose of encouragement to reality parenting from Dr. Kevin Leman. Dr. Leman looks to scripture for his framework for parenting with authority instead of being authoritarian. You’ll hear what this paradigm shift looks like and what a difference it will make!

Praise on the River

This year’s flooding in Davenport caused widespread devastation and loss in the downtown, but the area once under water will soon be filled with praise!! This family friendly event is the result of 15 churches coming together for a special evening set for September 1. There will be bounce houses, food, and games for kids along with a concert from area worship bands. Monday we’ll talk with Chris Werner and Neil McReynolds about this free community praise event!
