Tune in this weekend for some contagious encouragement with Keep The Faith. We guarantee you’ll feel uplifted. You can catch Keep The Faith on Sundays!
It’s been said that “to err is human. To forgive is divine.” Forgiveness is an integral part of the Easter season, and it’s an integral part of finding love. Jackie Dorman is a matchmaker, relationship coach, and author. Finding love in 12 months sounds almost impossible, but she says it’s not – IF you’re willing to take the right steps, like forgiving those who’ve hurt you in the past.

Easter Day 5: Jesus Washes His Disciples Feet

If you knew that your time here on earth was less than a day from being over, how do you think you would spend your last evening?
Certainly, you would want to be with the people you love, but what would you do? Perhaps you might share a great meal together, reminisce over your favorite memories and focus on what really matters in life.
In the Gospel of John chapter 13, we’re told that Jesus is in exactly this position. John tells us that “Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God.”  His death on the cross that will conquer sin and death once and for all is at hand, and Jesus knows it.

Education 101: Six Careers That Earn Six Figures

A paycheck isn’t everything and we would never advise someone to choose a career based on earnings potential alone, but it
is wise to have a general idea of what you can expect to earn on a certain career path along with a plan for lifetime career and wage progression. If you’re trying to decide what career to pursue, here are six well-paying jobs you might want to research further to see if they fit with your passion, your purpose, and your personality. 
: Apply mathematical and statistical techniques to solve problems. Most people in this field work for government organizations or for private research companies. Work is available with a Bachelor’s degree, but most opportunities require a Master’s degree. But the best part? The job outlook for mathematicians and statisticians is AMAZING – jobs are expected to grow by 33% over the next ten years!

Easter Day 4: The Meaning of Thirty Pieces of Silver


by SPIRIT 105.3 // Mar 31, 2021 12:00 AM
Description: Jars used for oil. (PC: Eunice Nygard)
On Wednesday of the Holy week, we find an interesting twist of irony as Matthew 26:6-13 shares the story of Jesus being in Bethany at the house of Simon the Leper. A woman enters the house and proceeds to pour out a very expensive alabaster jar of perfume over Jesus’ head. The disciples are said to be indignant that this extravagant expense was being wasted and that it could instead have been given to the poor. As Jesus heard these words, he commended the heart of the woman and explained that she had poured out the perfume to prepare him for burial. Though the disciples were not thinking of Jesus as being near death, the woman wanted to express her love and worship to Jesus and freely spared no expense to honor him.

Financial 101: What You Need to Know About the Extended Tax Deadline

Everyone has April 15th burned in their mind as the annual IRS tax filing deadline. However, in early March, the Treasury Department and IRS announced that the filing due date for individuals for the 2020 tax year would be extended to May 17, 2021. May 17th is also the new payment deadline for individual taxes, so if you owe money you’ll need to make your payment by that date, too.
Here are other Frequently Asked Questions about the new deadline.
What happens if I don’t file my taxes by May 17th?
If you don’t file and pay your tax bill by May 17th, you may be assessed a failure-to-file penalty. If you file but don’t pay your bill, you will be charged a failure-to-pay penalty (plus interest on your unpaid bill). Generally, failure-to-file penalties are heftier than failure-to-pay, so even if you can’t pay your tax bill, make sure you file the paperwork.

Exceptional Teacher: Julie Rawlins


by SPIRIT 105.3 // Mar 15, 2021 4:00 PM
Mrs. Rawlins has gone above and beyond to teach her Highly Capable 3rd grade class this year, entirely remotely. She has the patience of a saint to lead this group of kids through remote learning, teaching them more difficult vocabulary, higher level math, and to ensure they are excited about school. She’s brought in an interesting podcast, talked thoroughly with the class about having a growth mindset, and even took them on a virtual field trip to the San Diego Zoo. On top of keeping her kids engaged in remote learning (which is tough as it is), she has also been working through caring for, and ultimately  taking in an aging parent to live with her. She is working through all the required paperwork, caring for her mother, and teaching remotely in a pandemic.

Health 101: How to Stay Motivated On Your Weight Loss Journey


by Sponsored // Mar 8, 2021 2:05 PM

It’s happened to the best of us: You jump into a weight-loss regimen, start off strong, and quickly burn out. Maybe your friends invite you out for happy hour after work. Your family orders pizza on Friday night. Or you just don’t feel like getting up to go to the gym one morning. One day of less-than-perfect choices turns into two…which turns into a week…which turns into yet another abandoned but well-intentioned healthy-living effort.
So what’s the secret? How do you stay motivated so you can 
finally achieve your weight-loss goals? Jennifer Hildebrand from

From Lost to Loved: A Story of Hope from Seattle's Union Gospel Mission


by Erica Parkerson // Mar 10, 2021 12:30 PM
“Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other. Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are My disciples.” ~John 13:34-35
Debbie was homeless, addicted to Meth, and hopeless. Now, she’s clean, saving money for a new apartment, and overflowing with hope. It’s all because she walked through the doors of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, a place where the words of the Bible are lived out daily.
Inside the Mission, Debbie learned she was loved. She met Jesus followers who demonstrated His unconditional love and treated her with dignity. Debbie began to blossom in the knowledge that she was made in the image of God and precious to Him. Now, she works behind the front desk, offering the hope she found to others who are embarking on their own journeys.
