||Christmas Frame of Mind||You might just say that I’m a Christmas junkie. My parents got me hooked as a toddler and my addiction never subsided. Growing up, our little home was decorated to the fullest extent of its capacity with shiny, colorful ornaments.||12/4/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Get Ready to Rumble with “Prayer Warrior” Stormie Omartian||There are too many good things that won't happen if we are not praying.

I wrote this book because I saw too many people being destroyed for lack of knowledge about this subject [spir.||9/18/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Supernatural or Super Normal?||There is nothing new about the spirit realm. It’s been a part of the Bible since the words were written. We know that there are unseen activities going on around us. The devil and his minion demons exist. They are up to no-good all the time.||9/11/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Serving with All You’ve Got- Real Sacrifice||We put our 5 bedroom suburban house on the market. Bought a falling-down 1950’s 2 bedroom house in the ‘hood - that we promptly named Casa de Vida - House of Life as God imprinted His desire to give ‘life to the full’ indelibly on our hearts.||7/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|
||Unseen Powers and Prayer||"My plea to you is this: We mustn’t brush this reality aside, thinking that what we don’t know won’t hurt us.

||Getting Unstuck – Jamie George||Unfortunately, in my willingness to sacrifice for others I am not being a steward of myself. And if truly honest, not really sacrificing. I am doing the EASIER and LAZY thing. Serving myself takes a great deal of effort.||10/25/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||Put Love into Action||Pastor and mega-author Francis Chan wrote the forward to Love, Skip, Jump by Shelene Bryan. He said, “Don’t be another person who wastes his/her life by trying to save it. Join my friend Shelene in doing something.”||10/23/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||The New AWANA Transforms Kids and Families||Like a lot of Christ following parents, I had heard of the Awana ministry before, but in 2011, the way I viewed Awana totally changed. I was shocked by what I found out, and it totally changed our lives.||10/19/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||Tea Offers Lessons for Faith – Jennifer Miller||[It may sound crazy but there are many parallels between choosing/ brewing a good cup of tea and your faith.] ...if you offer up the biggest parts of yourself, then it is going to turn out the best. It is just more expensive.||10/16/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||Prayer – It’s What Gets Us Through the Trials||The pastor left his sermon manuscript in the pulpit. When the janitor found it, he couldn’t resist the urge to read it. He was impressed, until he stumbled over a note in the margin: “Argument weak here. Start yelling!”||10/14/2014||Free||View in iTunes|
Diane Markins boldly attacks important issues but always does so with a gracious manner. Her topics range from fun and entertaining to cutting-edge and relevant to everyone. Her show relates well with all audiences!
Diane is a wonderful host. She addresses issues that are relevant to our lives and is easy to interact with. How many radio show hosts will take the time to directly email you back when you contact the show? I definitely know of one that does!
Honesty and Boldness
I love how Diane is unapologetic in the topics she chooses and the questions she poses to her guests. Many Christians throw a wet blanket over the culturally hot issues but Diane goes after them with grace, balance, integrity and of course, boldness!
