A father’s job is to GUIDE his children into what God has for THEM to do, not do it for them. In other words, he should be their coach, and teach THEM how to win. Today on Grace Notes, our host Barbara Sandbek will share some thoughts on what it takes to be a good father.
We’ve been studying about Peace – peace with God and peace within ourselves. Today, our host Barbara Sandbek will center on keeping peace with each other. Stay tuned, this may be just what you need to hear.
We’ve been studying about peace. So far we’ve discussed how we can have peace with God and peace within ourselves. Our host Barbara Sandbek concluded our last program by saying that in order to have peace within ourselves, we need to focus on Jesus. But how do we do that? Stayed tuned and find out.
Because we’ve sinned against God, our relationship with the Author of peace is severed. But God provided the way for restoration to occur through the sacrificial gift of His son, Jesus, the Prince of Peace. He died and rose again to pay the penalty for our sin. By accepting Him as our Savior, we are at PEACE WITH GOD. On our program today, our host, Barbara Sandbek, will tell us how we can be at peace with ourselves.
Webster defines peace, both, as internal contentment and the end of hostilities via an agreement or treaty. But is peace really attainable? Can we ever get to the point where we feel ‘all smooth inside’ even during tumultuous times? On our program today, our host, Barbara Sandbek, will cover these questions and more as we begin a series entitled ‘Peace is attainable’.
Pictures…what would we do without them? They capture the beauty of the moment and help us relive memories of times that will never occur like that again. Other people can't appreciate them like we do - we have them painted in our minds. When we think of ‘MOTHER’, we recall vivid pictures of her doting over us in loving ways. On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek will pay tribute to the moms and grandmoms who mold the character of their children and grandchildren.
Barbara Sandbek concludes this series with a personal assessment of why trials occur and how God uses them to help us ‘work out’ our salvation. We’ll see the benefits we can receive as we allow ourselves to be clay in the Potter’s hands.
Barbara Sandbek has been describing the qualities listed in 2 Peter 1:5-7 that God wants us to incorporate into our lives. We’ve seen how faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, and patience can work together to form a ‘Christ-like’ character in us. On this program, Barbara will center on the next trait – Godliness. Why not get out your notepad – you’ll want to remember the Scriptures she shares.
We hope you’ve been enjoying our series entitled, ‘Why trials’. Barbara Sandbek has been talking about how trials build in us the character traits listed in 1 Peter 1:5-7. We found that faith, coupled with virtue, knowledge, and self-control, create in us a deeper love for God and others. On this program, Barbara will explain the attribute of patience, in a little different light, and share another one of her experiences.
God created man in His image and likeness. His likeness is His Glory or His character. Because of sin, we’ve lost our glory, but once we receive Christ into our lives by faith, Romans 8:29 says that God works to conform us into the likeness of His Son – and give us back the glory we’ve lost. On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek will explain how God works His character trait of self-control in us as she shares some of her own experiences.
God gave mankind the finest gift that could EVER be given. He SAW our need before we knew it and before we even asked. We were living our lives apart from Him, but God’s heart LONGED for our fellowship, so He commended His love to us through the gift of His Son, Jesus. Jesus STRETCHED OUT His hands on the cross to give us God’s love. He died and rose from the grave, to pay the penalty for our sin against God and to provide reconciliation. When we accept this gift, we have fellowship with God. What greater gift could we possibly want? On this Grace Notes program, our host Barbara Sandbek will talk about how we should respond to this great gift.
On our last program Barbara Sandbek talked about Elijah’s discouragement over Queen Jezebel’s threat to take his life.

On this program,, Barbara will share a time in her life when she, too, faced discouragement.
This is the last program in our Christmas story presentation. We’ve seen that God chose people who were, young, old, lowly, elite, and even peculiar, to play the roles. The common thread was that they were willing and ready. The beauty of the Christmas story is not just that Jesus CAME to earth, but WHY He came. Listen and hear more…

Faithfulness…what does it mean? Webster defines it as loyal. And ‘loyal’ is defined as faithful to a trust or confidence – true to duty or love. Is that the definition you had in mind? On this Grace Notes program, Barbara begins a new series which will take us on a journey with the prophet Elijah. We’ll see how God worked THROUGH Elijah to demonstrate His faithfulness to His people, Israel, despite their unfaithfulness. We’ll also see how God worked IN Elijah to groom him to truly be a man for the times. So, buckle your seat belts, and get ready to roll with the prophet of old.
