Show Notes

How a man’s chance encounter with a little girl gave him new purpose in life – CBS News

An unexpected but powerful friendship is the focus of this installment of “A More Perfect Union.” The series looks at unique connections to highlight how Americans have more in common than headlines might suggest. CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman shows us how an 82-year-old widower was touched by an innocent question in the canned food aisle of a grocery store when he needed it most. READ

Joining Jeff & DW on the show is Jason, Terra Kay, and Mike Ott. Tell us what the best part of Thanksgiving was for you on the Tweetback! This week on HopeNet Radio, we’re discussing the effects of thanksliving – kindness through acts of service. We believe that living thankfully results in acting thankful toward others. It seems like every other day, I see things like the Pay It Forward movement trending on Facebook or Twitter. (There’s even a Pay It Forward Day!)

#059: Never Not Thankful [Thanksliving]

thanksliving-N-644

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours this week! Thanksgiving time is not always filled with thanks-giving. In fact, 90% of people are only thankful when it’s over. Ok, well that stat might be made up. Regardless, the last thing we want for you is for you to miss out on the joy of Thanksgiving because you just don’t feel like being thankful.

This week’s conversation addresses the struggle to be thankful emotionally. Let’s face it, we don’t always feel thankful. Why is that? Listen to the show this week and decide for yourself to never not be thankful. Joining Jeff & DW on the show is Jason, Terra Kay, and Mike Ott. Leave your thoughts with us on the Tweetback!

#058: Attitude [Thanksliving]

T.H.A.N.K.S. This month, Jeff & DW will break down this word and help you live a life that’s thankful every day. The series is called “Thanksliving.” We’ve got the “A” for you this week!

Today’s generation, being so consumer-driven and consumer-minded, has created a thankless culture where the small things become even more insignificant as we search for the bigger, better, faster things. Consumers care less about the ‘why’ and more about the ‘what.’ It takes diligence to remain thankful in all circumstances.

Leave us some love on the TWEETBACK!

A- Attitude: Your attitude is your way of thinking. Changing an attitude isn’t just snapping out of a bad mood. It’s transforming your thought patterns. It takes work! Check out 1 Peter 4:1-2 NLT | ESV

[Tweet “Live a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Spirit. #Romans14 #HNRTB”]
