Early Morning Joy

Morning comes way too early in our home.  The alarm goes off at 6am, and we start our daily routine of getting kids ready for school.  We're usually finished by 7am, then have a bible study that ends around 7:15.  Saturdays are a bit more relaxed, and Sundays are still early but not quite as rushed for 10am Sunday School. 

How do we find joy in the midst of weekday rushing and drowsy weekends?

Each morning I keep our radio on, listening to KVCY out of Ft. Scott, KS.  It is a part of the VCY America organization, which plays Christian information (like talk/news programs), Bible studies (like Adrian Rogers, Charles Stanley, John MacArthur, Tony Evans, J. Vernon McGee), solid Christian music, and when necessary pertinent information directed to our region. 

Saturday mornings are the most fun!  The day begins with music, and then children's programming.  Uncle Charlie begins with Keys for Kids.  I find it such a joy to hear the archived shows, with young children singing hymns.  Today, a 3 year old performed a hymn, and it was such a joy to hear. Then there's Kid's Talk, Fables of Faith, Ranger Bill, Sailor Sam, and more.  The latter two shows are produced at Moody's in Chicago!

 Later in the morning, we have Jonathan Park adventures in creation science.  In the afternoon there's music and programs for us adults, such as Crosstalk.  In the afternoon there's Unshackled, produced and performed by the Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago. 

 Later in the day, Monday through Friday, there's the Sugarcreek Gang

If you're interested in Bible reading, you've come to the right place!  Max McLaine's audio version of the KJV is on at 9pm Monday through Friday!

A program schedules for VCY programing is available here.

You don't have a local VCY America station?  You can listen to them online all around the world!  Simply choose from dial up or broad band! 

This station is a ministry that started over 50 years ago, and also has a tv station in Milwaukee.  Why not let this ministry be a blessing to you as well?  When you have a spare moment, why not tune them in by radio, tv, or on your computer or phone (they have apps for your various phones).  You won't regret it!

  1. Sounds like a great way to order your day! Many of those programs were staples in our home when the children were little. But I love listening to some of those wonderful bible teachers!
