Terrific Content. Positive Advice. Just in Time.
Thanks, Jim, for making your broadcasts available as podcasts! I don't get to listen to your show on the radio, but now I can let all the great advice, teaching, and encouragement come to me. This will be a great help, not only to me, but also to the other parents in my congregation. Thanks again, and may God bless your efforts here.
Thank You! Thank You!
HomeWord Team, I am thrilled that you have made your broadcasts available to me (via my ipod). Your words have stirred me to be a better father and husband. I thank you - but even more, I have two young boys and a wife who are even more thankful!
Newsflash (and tip for Jumpstart)
Tip about podcasts: they aren't just for iPods. Podcasts can be downloaded and played on PCs and Macs, and burned onto CDs to play while driving your car. I often check in on Jim Burn's broadcasts on the way home from work (WAVA in the DC area). I especially enjoyed the broadcast on "Experiencing Peace Amidst the Pressures of Life" -- Ruth Haley Barton really has some good ideas to share. She obviously speaks on the basis of real success in her own life. Thanks for your program, Jim, and keep up the good, practical content.
