Paul tells us in Philippians Chapter 4 that we should rejoice in the Lord at all times, not be anxious and receive the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding. Now which of us would not want total peace? Yet which of us as Christians truly experiences it?
We have been forgiven of our sins and received the promise of eternity with God in heaven, yet we continue to struggle and worry about this life. Instead of exhibiting peace we are often filled with angst.
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash today to discuss what the peace of God looks like and how we can enter it and enjoy the life He has given us.Read More
Mike and David are off today. Crash Connell visits with Dave Wager about what the Bible teaches believers how we should live and love in the world around us. What is our motivation? Dave often refers to a book he’s reading, THE HOLY WAR by John Bunyan, 1st & 2nd John and passages in the book of Job.Read More
The accepted American formula for success includes graduating High School and then going off to College to establish a foundation for success as an adult. The only problem is this: it isn’t working! Youth are graduating College often with useless degrees, indoctrinated into an anti-biblical worldview, strapped with massive debt and a feeling of hopelessness.
This morning Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash Connell to discuss a practical alternative to preparing students for life—one that is based on the Word and practical teachings of God.Read More
There is no greater challenge facing man then the reality of his own mortality. Hebrews 9:27 tells us it is appointed for a man to die once and then be judged. Death in the physical realm is inevitable; where a man’s souls goes after death is the real issue of eternal importance.
Born-again Christians, if we believe the promises of God, should not fear death…we should actually welcome it. But we should also have a sense of urgency about death for those who have not placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch joins Mike and Crash this morning to put the inevitability of physical death into proper biblical perspective: encouraging us to enjoy the life God has given us, not fear our mortal deaths, and have a sense of urgency for unbelievers who still fear death.Read More
We all get frustrated or disappointed with life at times. Things do not go as well as we think they should or as well as we think we deserve. The world tells us we can have our “best life now” and that the world is there for our pleasure and enjoyment, and when it doesn’t work out that way we feel the frustration of life’s daily challenges and obstacles.As disciples of Jesus Christ our attitude should be different. God’s Word tells us that Jesus has overcome the world on our behalf…so why do we still struggle with life’s challenges and disappointments? Could it be that our expectations of God are arrogant and self-serving? Could it be that we have not taken the time to really know the God we claim to worship and trust?Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash to discuss how a lack of knowing and trusting in God’s nature and character can lead to a life of frustration, depression or even defeat.Read More
The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ can be complex at times. The Bible tells us we should trust God in all matters. It says we can approach the throne of God in confidence with our petitions. And yet it also says to fear God. Trust, confidence and fear: Not always easy to reconcile all three of those, yet this is the life we are called to as believers, particularly in a world that increasingly hates God and we who are disciples of Jesus.Read More
The “god” of this world, Satan, will do anything he can to take our eyes off of God and think we can find lasting joy and peace in the things of this world. God tells us that not only is that futile, but that the things of this world will actually lead us to hopelessness and even despair when we trust in them to find meaning and happiness. Yet we continually try to find purpose, meaning and happiness in wealth, pleasure or entertainment. This morning Dave Wager joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell to discuss the futility of pursuing happiness and meaning in the things of this world. We look at the life of Solomon who pursued happiness through intellect, wealth and pleasure only to discover the futility of seeking anything but God.Read More

In Colossians 3:3-4 Paul says “For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life appears, then you will appear with him in glory”. Paul goes on to say we should put to death what is earthly in us because of our new identity, and put on the characteristics of Christ. In his writings we see what it means to truly be a disciple of Jesus Christ, uniquely set apart from the beliefs, actions and desires of this world.Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins us as we study Paul’s profound writings in Colossians Chapter 3.Read More
Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins us to discuss two crucial men and lessons from the Old Testament that are important for believers these days.
First, we look at the “weeping prophet” Jeremiah: a man called by God to bring a warning to God’s people and call them to repentance only to be beaten, tortured and ignored.
And we look at Dave’s new book titled My Shepherd Psalm 23, a children’s book that brings the assurance that our shepherd, Jesus Christ, will always protect us and never abandon us.Read More
SEGMENT 1: For too long, too many people think of abortion as merely a “political” or a “social” issue”. Some suggest it only falls under the category of privacy: a woman’s medical decision “between her and her Doctor”. But the reality is we are talking about life or death for an innocent baby created by God in His image.
Wisconsin Right to Life is one of the most prestigious, efficient pro-life organizations in our nation. Mike and David are joined by Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life to discuss pro-life issues as well as the September 24 Green Bay dinner reception for the Veritas Society.

There can be no doubt the rules of cultural engagement for Christians is changing rapidly – especially as we attempt to share our faith and live our lives. Just the mere mention of the Bible or the word “Christian” conjures up accusations of being an intolerant bigot, homophobe, and hater.
What do we do as Christian witnesses who are instructed to be salt and light in the world?
Today Mike and David take a comprehensive look at the controversy surrounding New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees who is being criticized from all angles over his recent support of the national campaign, “Bring Your Bible to School Day” (Oct. 3). Brees also responded to the criticism he received from cultural bullies and LGBTQ advocates as well as the Christian Community.Read More
Change is sometimes abrupt and immediate, but more often it is comprised of a slow erosion over time as little by little truth is replaced with opinions and emotions. The serious decline of Christianity in America is the result of decades of subtle changes in what has been and is currently being taught in public education, what is presented in media, and from pulpits that often seem more interested in placating culture instead of speaking God’s truth and shining the light of Christ truth into it.Read More
