Today’s the Day!

By Julianna Keck

Nov. 28, 2017

In the wake of the mad dash for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, today marks yet another cleverly dubbed day of the week—one that couldn’t be more different. A day dedicated to giving back.

We are so thankful for all the radio stations and listeners who make the programs we represent possible. Your decision to support these ministries helps ensure that the Word of God is heard throughout our country and world.

Discover The Character of a Leader with Dr. John Townsend and Discover the Word

By Julianna Keck

Sept. 18, 2017

“Are leaders born … or are they made?” We are all leaders … in our families, with our friends, in our place of work, and in our churches. But that doesn’t necessarily mean effective leadership comes naturally. This week, from September 18–22, author and psychologist Dr. John Townsend will join the Discover the Word team to discuss The Character of a Leader. This series explores how crucial character is to building a strong leadership style. Throughout the study, Townsend and the Discover the Word Team provide four, tangible skills to help listeners lead well within their spheres of influence. Brian Hettinga sets the stage for compelling content in this video teaser: Our Daily Bread Ministries has designed a number of graphics to help promote The ... Read More

Discover the Word Will Put Your Concept of Temptation on Trial

By Jessie Jolliff

Aug. 1, 2017

This week, Discover the Word hosts, Elisa Morgan, Bill Crowder and Mart DeHaan are bringing the biblical account of The Temptation of Jesus to the table for a fascinating examination of the 40 days He spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan. Temptation is oft envisioned as something that sneaks up on Christians and catches us in a moment of weakness. The account found in Luke 4, however, is quite contrary to that assumption. Jesus was not surprised or tested in a moment of weakness. Rather, He was “led by the Spirit” into the wilderness to face the Enemy. Jesus, having just been baptized, was declared “full of the Holy Spirit” … and then was led into temptation in the desert. Coincidence? With the ... Read More

The Discover the Word team is currently featuring a fascinating discussion with author, Ann Voskamp, on her new book, “The Broken Way.” Ann shared with the team she hopes this series “breaks a lot of people free from being afraid of broken things … [because] suffering is never a meaningless waste of your life but a meaningful way through your life.” This gripping two-week series is accompanied by several videos and interviews with Ann Voskamp and the Discover the Word team in the studio. Check out these videos posted on the DTW Facebook page.
