For Your Listening Pleasure

I hope this link will be especially encouraging to moms of young ones. Often, I miss the message at church on Sunday mornings for various reasons. If you had or have young kids at home, I don't need to explain why. Our church makes messages available online, and there are a whole host of great sites that post their messages online, too, such as John Piper's Desiring God site to name one of my favorites. However, I find that when trying to listen to a message, there is constant interruption. I have to press pause or come back and try to find the spot where I had to stop listening.

So, I've "tuned in" to online radio instead. My husband turned me on to this through a site called, Shoutcast. You can listen to just about any style of music out there. We listen to classical during our dinner time to fool ourselves into thinking we're "those" kind of people...ya know, sophisticated with mannerly children who don't sing silly songs at the table or complain about how much they don't like what you've prepared for them.

During my days lately, I've been tuning into Sovereign Grace Radio, listening to the latest CD put out by father/son duo, Mark and Steve Altrogge, entitled In a Little While. What I appreciate about this CD in particular is that I can catch one of two lines at a time and be instantly encouraged, receive help in renewing my mind and taking my thoughts captive throughout the day. In being able to catch just one or two lines, I find that my thoughts will turn toward the cross and things eternal, and this does my soul good...and in turn, my home and children good as well. SO, tune in. Go to the site linked above and in the right hand corner, underneath the banner you'll see the words, "Sovereign Grace Radio". Click on that and be blessed!

I love Shoutcast! I used to listen to it all the time at work, thanks for reminding me, I'd forgotten! I always liked to tune into "world music."

I tuned into Shoutcast today, thanks! Although I found myself listening to a remix of Marvin Gaye's "S..ual healing". Which was fun, but probably not what you had in mind! Ha. Thanks :-)

Funny that both of you mentioned Shoutcast. I meant to direct everyone to the Sovereign Grace Radio.

I tuned in to the SG but was hoping to hear more than just the Altrogee voice, I was thinking it was going to be a little different...although it was great to hear that as well. thanks girlie!

You guys crack me up about the dinner thing. I can't even PRETEND about the table conduct. I'm just happy if everyone is in their seat and food is going in the mouths. Donny frequently catches me saying"Close your mouths and eat". Of course, the kids haven't caught the humor in that yet. Won't be long though. I'll have to check out the SG Radio. THanks!
Also, veggie tales has a worship cd which we all love. It has real worsip songs and Matt Redman(sp?) leads a couple. It great!
