Ep 35 l Worry... Getting to the AMEN.
May 17 2022
Ep 35 l Worry... Getting to the AMEN.
I hope you enjoyed hearing from some of our ministry friends and partners - last week.  It was truly so wonderful, for us, to hear from others that have been such a pivotal part of this ministry over the years.  We are so grateful for them... their support, guidance, leadership and participation with this ministry.  Today,  we are changing gears a bit and talking about WORRY and ANXIETY.   Do you worry?  Would you consider yourself a worrier?  I had not ever considered myself a worrier, however; I have realized recently - that I have been struggling with worry.Research has shown... of EVERYTHING we worry about in our lives - only 8% of those things MAY come to life.     Here are some (HARD) questions I would love for YOU to REFLECT on and ASK YOURSELF:1.  What do you do when you are worrying...?  I have realized, I turn to food.        Some others escape - run. 2.  Do YOU TRUST God to carry you thru the things you worry about?3.  Are there worries in YOUR LIFE that you 'give to God', but never fully relinquish hold of?      We tend to run from God or turn from Him and turn towards something that       doesn't bring  JOY or COMFORT.   I want to leave you with these final words of wisdom... "Any time you feel pressure - it is ONLY measuring the resistance to what God has allowed into your life."I pray today,  you can yield to the pressure and that YOU are able to get the AMEN... let it be said, let it be done.  RESOURCES:Matthew 6:25 - 34Psalm 37:4 Support the show

This podcast actually took place during our annual TopGolf fundraiser.  I can't wait for YOU to hear from some of our closest friends and ministry partners.  Here we go...Our first guest is Cathy Bell.   Cathy is one of the longest running board members on our Brent Gambrell Ministries / ADTH Board of Directors; she serves as our Secretary and my life long bff.   Cathy Bell knows everything about me and I about her... so, needless to say - we will be in each other's lives FOREVER!  Fun fact about Cathy... if it wasn't for her - my first book, Living For Another, would not have been written. (True story)Welcome Rick and Judy Barnette.  These two have been some of the greatest advocates for ADTH... they may hold the record for most trips to Haiti.  Rick, truly loves HAITI and this ministry.  He has a heart of gold, and helps in ways that just BLOW US AWAY!   Rick always gives great insight - and is usually the first to ask me the hard questions.  I love that he loves me and this ministry enough to ask those hard questions.  Welcome Kris Kelso,  the chairman of our Board of Directors.  Kris is the husband to Mary Jo Kelso - who has been on our podcast and one of the O.G. members of this ministry.  Kris has been involved with this ministry since the beginning - and he was one of the FIRST MEMBERS of our Board of Directors.  He is 19 years in and counting!  We love Kris and can't wait for you to hear his heart and insight.  Kris brings an energy and wisdom to this ministry that is much needed and respected.  Welcome William Horton.  William is our Treasurer.  He is the money man... and we value his insight and love for this ministry.  We met William thru his beautiful daughters, Katie and Corbie.  He had NO idea that after meeting him on his 1st trip to Haiti, with his daughter Katie, that he would forever be connected and a pivotal part of this ministry.   I am very excited for you to hear from some dear friends of this ministry.   Mike Slinker and his family - Tennessee Memories.  We love the Slinker family... they are new friends to the ministry, but have already become family and are HUGE IMPACT partners for ADTH.

He lead us to La Romana, Dominican Republic.    After seeing the work this man and his organization have been doing with the Haitian communities in the D.R. - the Lord made it VERY CLEAR this is exactly  WHERE and WHO we were supposed to partner with.   Please LISTEN as Moises shares his INCREDIBLE STORY and what we will be building together in the D.R.I hope you have enjoyed meeting our ADTH family!  If you have ANY questions about our ministry or our ministry partners - please reach out!  We would LOVE  to SHARE all the information we can!  If YOU would like to join us on a trip to the Dominican Republic - click HERE for all the information! Support the show
Ep 32 l No Footprints on Water with Mary Jo Kelso (In Studio)

Ep 32 l No Footprints on Water with Mary Jo Kelso (In Studio)
Today we are joined by, the one and only, Mary Jo Kelso.  Mary Jo and I go back many, many, many years; Mary Jo is one of the founding members of Images.  Images was our comedy/drama trio that traveled coast to coast sharing the Gospel thru drama skits, worship, Biblical teaching and comedy.  Mary Jo, is married to Kris Kelso (the chairman of our Board of Directors) and is the mother to 3 of the tallest, coolest boys... Owen, Ivan and Aron. I admitted to Mary Jo, during this podcast, that I learned so much about the Bible from her.  One of the biggest things I learned from Mary Jo was... she would say, 'I am gonna GO GET CLOSE'.  That was how SHE described - what must of us call  - our 'quiet time'.  I just LOVED THAT; so, I totally stole it from her and now say... 'I am gonna go get close!'.  Have you ever tried to walk on water?  Well, Mary Jo did - 😂 - today she tells us about that event and the moment (years later) God used it to reveal a beautiful truth to her.   I promise this will be an episode you will NOT want to miss.  Join me as we hear Mary Jo's heart and learn what it means to ask the question, "Who God is?".

Ep 23 l Your Shadow (In Studio)
Oct 29 2021
Ep 23 l Your Shadow (In Studio)
Today we talk about the affect and influence YOUR shadow can cast.  Listen as we explore the scripture in Acts 5:15-16."...so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them.   The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.  Acts 5:15-16Peter cast a shadow that was healing.   Our shadow is our influence... is your shadow healing or not? That is the question we explore during this episode.A shadow is a figure or image cast on the ground by a body intercepting light.  (Webster's) Everyone has a shadow... below are the 3 points that stood out to us from Acts 5:15 -16:1 . We were put here for a purpose to cast a shadow /  to cast an influence2.  God was thinking of you long before you existed3. The purpose of YOUR life fits into a larger scheme for the planetSomeone is always looking at your life...  our shadow doesn't talk, but our lives should speak!  What is your life / your influence / your shadow say? Ralph Waldo Emerson says... "Your life speaks so loud... I can hardly hear what you are saying."  Let your shadow grow.  Make YOUR relationships intentional.  We were so challenged  by this message today... that we challenged ourselves to do a couple of things.  So, we thought you might enjoy being INCLUDED.  You ready?  Here you go!Challenge: 1. We challenge you to CALL… Not email or even write a letter to but physically talk to a person in your past who’s influence and shadow changed your life for the better.  Tell them what it has meant to you specifically and how their life has changed yours.2. Purposefully identify a person you know YOU influence and speak encouraging words into their life today.EPH. 1:11-12,  2 COR. 3:2,  MATT. 5:16, EPH. 5:15-16,  PROV. 4:18Support the show
