Life is an Adventure & Kindness is a Superpower
Through my ongoing adventures, I've learned that Kindness is a Superpower, compassion can heal, and the hope that's found through faith in Jesus Christ leads to limitless pathways and endless possibilities.

You might know me from the more than 15 years of radio! Most recently Chicago's own 'Karl and June Mornings!'
Radio is amazing! So much wisdom from thousands of interviews with people from all over the world and from all walks of life! So much inspiration from millions of listeners and hundreds of guests. I've learned so much from you. What an adventure! I'm thankful!
Around the World!
The Dominican Republic is a place filled with miracles! There I met so many inspiring people. People who wake up every day with one question on their hearts: "Who can I be a blessing to today in Jesus Name?" My favorite quote was from a man named Mael. He lives in a steel shack sells a homemade treat called 'Johnny Cakes.' He told me, "No man is so poor that he cannot give, and no man is so rich that he does not have need. If I have two plantains, one is for my neighbor." Now that will preach!

A New Hope
One of the most inspiring stories I've ever heard was from a new friend, Battsetseg in Mongolia. After hearing a radio program about the love of Jesus, she and her husband decided to create a library for orphans. She sold his paintings on the streets for money and inspired her community so much that even the homeless residents were helping out. After meeting Battsetseg, I knew I wanted to join her in this mission to share love with these children. Now the library has grown exponentially. They have a building and uniforms and hope is overflowing every day! Battsetseg says "My dream has come true!"
A man imprisoned for years to pay the debts of his employer, singing praises to God for goodness and grace. Barefoot messengers on bicycles traveling from community to community to share hope that never runs out. Villagers who gather in Churches with no walls and worms falling from thatched roofs to listen to the Bible in their own language, thankful for the love and peace of God.
Beautiful people with unrelenting faith. Reminders all around that when God gives a vision, nothing can stop it from coming to pass.
