Have you ever thought about the power of music, or had a song stuck in your head and no matter what you do, can’t stop repeating the lyrics over and over?
What we listen to makes a huge difference in our lives. As I tell my kids, “garbage in, garbage out.” Christian music can lift your mood, help you memorize scripture, and touch your heart in a special way.
I love, love, love listening to my “Jesus music”on the radio and jumped at the chance to take a field trip to Fredericksburg to visit the PER Radio (Positive Encouraging Radio)station!
We got to meet Don (Program Director and Morning Show Co-Host), Angela (Morning Show Co-Host) and Theresa (Midday host & Director of PER Day Sponsorships). They were all so sweet and you could tell that they love their jobs and that they love the Lord!
It was amazing to hear how God has been faithful over the past (almost 17) years from when they started in a rundown trailer (full of mice and even a few snakes) to providing the beautiful office space and studio that they have now.
The staff were so excited and grateful to have their own offices (with windows), a break room where they can eat together, and even a men and a women’s bathroom 🙂 !
They had a BEAUTIFUL prayer wall where anybody can write down a prayer request, slip it into the wall, and know that their request will be prayed over:
The building also contained a cool memorial brick wall:
We learned about the history of the station, got to practice with the mics and make a few voice recordings, learn how things work, ask lots of questions, and tour the facility. One of the students from our group even brought Don a Tri-Bond clue, got to record himself reading it, and will be on air tomorrow morning around 7:45 am – very cool!!!
We all went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch after our tour and then headed home…what a FUN fieldtrip!
