Last Minute Change of Plans – 4/19 Show Features Kathi Lipp & Sheryl Giesbrecht

Due to an unforeseen scheduling error, I was just notified that my previously announced guests will not be with me this Saturday…ahhhh the joys of live radio! But praise God I still had some great interviews from the International Christian Retail Show from last summer to share :).

Join me this Saturday at 11AM PST on 820AM KGNW, or streaming live on, as I introduce you to two author friends who have something significant to share! Kathi Lipp, creator of the Husband Project and author of “Praying God’s Word for Your Life” will share during the first half of the show, and Sheryl Giesbrecht, radio personality, cancer survivor, recently married widow, and author of “Get Back Up: Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down” will be with me for the second half of the show.

What a great save! Love these two ladies! You won’t want to miss this show!

Many women find it easy to pray for the concerns and well-being of others. But when it comes to praying for themselves, they may wonder, Should I pray for my own needs? Are any prayers too big or too small? Are my prayers effective? Are they selfish? Does praying really make a difference?

Kathi Lipp inspires thousands of women each year to take beneficial steps in their personal, marital and spiritual lives through purposeful living. With humor and wisdom, Kathi offers hope paired with practical steps to live each facet of our lives with meaning.

Kathi is the author of eight books including her latest, Praying God’s Word for Your Life, with Revell Publishers and Harvest House Publishers. She has become well respected on the topics of marriage, children and self-purpose from a biblical perspective. She has four more books slated for release in the next two years.

She is a national speaker and is often featured on Focus on the FamilyMOPS, and Nickelodeon TV’s Parent Connect as well as a number of other reputable organizations around the country. She was recently named “Best of Broadcast” on Focus on the Family.

She and her husband Roger are the parents of four young adults in San Jose, CA. When she’s not doing laundry, Kathi is speaking at retreats, conferences and women’s events across the US.

Life is not always easy or fair for the follower of Christ. Yet, Sheryl Giesbrecht has learned, from the depths of past pain, it is possible to be raised up. It is possible to heal. Most importantly, it is possible to exchange hurt for hope. In her inspirational new book, Get Back Up: Trusting God When Life Knocks You Down, Sheryl tells her own story. She uses scripture to tell the stories of so many other Biblical figures who stumbled before they could be helped up. Sheryl’s message is one of hope. Trusting God in the midst of a life turned upside down is essential to survival. Without Him, life would not be worth living. Climbing out of the pits of despair would be impossible. Yes, with God to lean on, finding hope is possible. Healing is possible. God is capable of taking our losses and mistakes and turning them into something remarkably beautiful. Won’t you let Him?

Exchanging hurt for hope is Sheryl Giesbrecht’s focus—a message she shares with audiences as a radio personality, author, and speaker. A dynamic teacher and motivating leader, Giesbrecht has endured many changes and challenges, moving her to a deep faith, trust, and dependence on God.

She served as Focus on the Family’s columnist for Pastor’s Wives for four years. Hundreds of her columns, magazine and devotional articles have appeared in Focus on The Family Magazine, Just Between UsDiscipleship JournalCCM, Walk Thru the Bible’s – InDeed and Tapestry publications.

Giesbrecht’s radio show, “Kindred Moments,” can be heard each weekday evening and Sunday afternoons on KAXL 88.3 FM Music for Life, and her nationally syndicated radio show, “Turn Up the Music with Sheryl Giesbrecht,” is heard on numerous networks across the United States.

She also has a heart for missions and is avid about reaching out to the poor and needy, locally through the Rescue Mission and worldwide through Compassion International. Giesbrecht is also the Executive Director of International Christian Ministries  and has been personally involved with equipping hundreds and facilitating the training of thousands of leaders internationally. It is a ministry in which she worked alongside her late husband, Paul.

The joys of Giesbrecht’s life are her two children, son-in-law, and her most recent marriage to Dr. Jim Turner. Sheryl holds a bachelor of arts from Biola University, a master’s in ministry and a doctorate of theology.
