I heard a cool story on Air1 yesterday. During the station's fundraiser drive, a woman had written in about how she and her son loved listening to Air1 and kept the radio on a lot, even when her husband, who wasn't a believer, was around.
Just a week or so later, this dear woman wrote in again to report that her husband had accepted Christ because he'd listened to the music. Her husband also wanted to support Air 1 as a way of saying thank you.
I was driving my car at the time I heard this story and fought a rush of tears. What an amazing story of how this mom and son had affected their unbelieving loved one by doing what they loved—listening to music that glorified God. And in this one instance, words did make a difference obviously, but not the words of this faithful woman. Her devotion to God in how she raised their son and enjoyed her faith through music is most likely what spoke to this man at home.
Don't you just love seeing how God works in the smallest of ways to make the biggest difference? We just never know what God will use in our lives to speak to another person. This also spoke to me about not being so fearful of living my faith honestly and authentically.
After I heard this story I couldn't help but pray for all the unbelieving spouses of our readers here at S.U.M. and those of the members of the 1Peter3Living Yahoo group. Our Jesus truly is the Savior of all men and we get to be his audience! So rock on!

Marching Around Jericho is a spiritual guide. As you read through the pages, powerful and transformative instruction and equipping takes place. We follow Jesus as he leads us around the walls, imparting kingdom truths with each passing, finally arriving at the gates of the walled-off city, our spouse’s unbelieving heart. After the circles in prayer are complete, we arrive fully prepared to command the walls to crumble and be removed, making a way for our spouse to step from the rubble of lies and captivity, into faith and freedom!
