    Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals and Quotes on Happy Talk Radio "Praise Power"

    in Religion

    Hello World!


    Welcome to Happy Talk Radio.  This is GG Stanley.  I am you host with the most happy news from coast-to-coast.


    Happy Talk Radio is about you and me.  It is a family friendly media embracing and transcending the totality of happiness with happy talk and happy thoughts.


    Today, Happy Talk Radio is getting its "Praise On" with Joel Osteen's Daily Devotionals, Quotes and Declarations. 


    ARE YOU READY FOR A NEW PLACE IN YOUR LIFE?


    God desires to take you to new places in your life. He wants to take you to deeper places in your walk with Him, and He wants to take you into higher places of blessing in your life. Are you ready to go to places that you’ve never been before?


    So many people today get stuck in a rut because they don’t want to get out of their comfort zone. They want to stay with what they know because it’s familiar.


    But in order for you to reach your full potential, you have to be willing to step out into the unknown. You won’t ever walk on water until you step out of the boat! We all have areas where we can rise higher. Open your heart today and be ready to step out into the unknown. Trust that the Lord will guide and order your every step. Begin to expect that the unexpected is on the way. Be ready to step out into new places. (shared by Sherrie Hudson, New Advent Alto Leader)


    “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.”
    Hebrews 11:1, NLT


    Happy Talk Radio is bringing it home.  Praise the Lord!

    Please tune in to Stand Up Hudson Valley Episode 20 tonight at 7 PM.  Hosts John Allegro and Emily Convers will discuss the latest on "Salt-gate," the manufactured controversy that has roiled the relationship between the Town Board and the Monroe Highway Superintendant over the past months.  It's so bad that the April 20 Town Board meeting degenerated into a shouting match between the Supervisor and the Hwy. Superintendant that lasted about an hour.


    All this prior to announcing a "rules of civility" for meeting attendees.  


    John and Emily will also detail the plan by the KJPE to drive down property values through annexation.  Also, how this annexation - if passed - will have grave consequences on the MW School District and our childrens' education.

    Valley Shine Interview August 22, 2015

    in Music

    Valley Shine was distilled from a love of whiskey, cats and bluegrass music. In early 2014, Jenna Blake was in search of a writing partner with an appreciation for folk music who shared her passion for songwriting. Hailing from Louisville, KY, Jenna was influenced by traditional bluegrass music and roots rock like CCR, CSNY and Joni Mitchell. By a sheer stroke of luck, Jenna discovered Sam Sobelman and the two met up to see if there was any musical chemistry. After a couple of writing sessions influenced by whisky, laughs and some banjo pluckin', they quickly discovered their songwriting styles were a perfect match.
