Broken Hallelujah

I was having problems in my marriage, and after some best efforts on my part (therapy, daily scripture study and prayer, among other things) things seemed a little better, but then one day everything came crashing down. I was very discouraged for several days. Normally I’m a regular listener to KSBJ on my way to and from work but for those few days I felt so hopeless that I didn’t even want to turn on the radio. I didn’t feel like reading from the Bible or praying really. The words at the beginning of the song Broken Hallelujah exactly described how I felt: “I can barely stand right now, everything is crashing down, and I wonder where you are.” I would ask God exactly that: “Where are you? I’ve been making my best efforts but it has come crashing down again.” I would ask him that over and over again during those days. I listened to Broken Hallelujah at work over and over again. Even though I didn’t have the radio on during my commute, I had alot of the songs that play on KSBJ playing in my mind. Not only Broken Hallelujah, but several others. After a few days, my wife and I were finally able to come to an understanding. I began to feel a little more encouraged. Not quite enough to turn the radio back on, but as I was processing and contemplating the events, and my feelings over the past few days, I realized that God was with me in the songs that played over and over in my head, even when I had the radio off. I had been asking God: “Where are you?” And He had been with me the entire time through the songs that I had heard on KSBJ that were playing over and over in my head. I had not been abandoned after all. Thanks and praise be to our almighty and loving God!!

Life isn’t always what we expect

I began listening to KSBJ in 2004, when I was 24 years old. At that time I had an 8 year old son (you can do the math) and he was my world. That is also the year I found Jesus and my son and I began going to church, the same church I am actively a part of today. My son started attending Pine Cove that same year as well and would go every year until his senior year of high school. He loved that camp. That is where he found Jesus. My son struggled with addiction his adolescent years and entered many substance abuse facilities. When my world seemed dark and lonely through his addiction I always turned to KSBJ to get me through it. My son, Garrett, lost his battle with addiction on August 16, 2016 and as I was being driven to the hospital to see him, my best friend turned on KSBJ and “Thy Will” came on. That wasn’t a coincidence. That was God who had y’all play that song that afternoon.  That is one of the only things I remember from that day. The rest was a blur. Your station, your DJs, your prayers, your music, has kept me going through this unthinkable time in my life. My husband listened to your station for the first time after our son passed and listens to you guys every day now.


The other day y’all talked about us protecting our children and doing things for our children when they could do those things themselves. I saved my son so many times in fear of him failing or….dying. On August 13, 2016, I finally stepped back and let God take care of my son. And God did. People always ask me, “How can you say that? Your son died.” But my son is no longer in pain; no longer suffering. God had mercy on him and I know I will see my baby boy again one day. KSBJ, the music, and my church have helped me see this. Thank you for this. I will forever be grateful.

Husband Opening Up

My husband and I have had some martial issues that almost ended our marriage 5 years ago. The last 5 years have been an uphill battle to get to where we are today. We are both Christians but that incident left us mad at God. I started going back to church about a year ago and have been praying for my husband to come back as well. God is really working in my life and I am over the moon grateful for that. We have been in a rut lately with each of us doing our own thing. I have been in continuous prayer for my husband and our marriage. So I am looking for anything that can get us doing things together.
My husband loves music of all types. Me, not so much except for some country and Christian music. I noticed that Duran Duran was coming to concert in a few weeks and asked my husband if he wanted to go. Now mind you I have no clue who they are or what they sing I am just looking for anything to get us out together. He says no, he is not interested. So I drop it. The next morning he asks me if I wanted to go, I chuckled and said no I don’t even know what they sing. Then he asks me if there is a concert I would like to go to. Without hesitation I said that I really would like to go to the KSBJ Anniversary Concert this weekend. Without skipping a beat he tells me to get tickets. Let me tell you that was God and God alone. I am praying that my husband’s eyes and heart will be open to God once again through this event. Without KSBJ we would not have this opportunity. Thank you for your obedience and faithfulness to God, and for all that you do.

Mental Health and Gods Healing

I started out as a typical college kid, then came under some bad influence from my cousins. I ended up consuming a spiked drink in college which led to a nervous breakdown, depression and suicidal thoughts. But then I found God and accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and got the help I needed. Now I seek to raise awareness on Mental Illness and share my testimony with others across the globe. I am the author of a book: Madness To Ministry, My testimony, Your triumph. In the book, I share personal dark truths about my wrestling match with Mental Health and how I overcame; depression, feeling of neglect and suicidal thoughts. Peace and may God be with you!

Giving my life to God

I was born in Louisiana and raised in Beijing, China. When I was 3, my mom noticed something wrong with me so she took me into the therapist and after some tests the therapists said Mackenzie will never be a normal girl, she wont graduate and will have to go to an all special Ed school for the rest of her life! My mom and family hated hearing that so I went through 2 years of occupational therapy and 3 years of physical therapy. I was a swimmer, but its funny because it started as part of my therapy and I feel in love with it so much that I continued to do it! I made varsity my sophomore year and made varsity districts as well as lettered and went to a qualifying meet that same year. I was made fun of and bullied throughout my school years, and people treated me like I had a disease or something. They would make fun of me for having special tutoring time, and looking different. They would tell me,“Who could ever love a girl with a learning disability? You have no friends. You’re dumb.”


After years of this I decided to go upstairs, shut the light off, and close the door and blinds so no one could see or hear me. I took my brother’s sword, kneeled down and was going to kill myself. I was crying for 40 min straight and a voice was saying, “Mackenzie, who could ever love a girl with a learning disability? You have no friends! No one loves you! You have no purpose in this world.” And kept saying that and then it got silent and so as I was about to take my life, another voice came and said calmly, “Mackenzie, I love you! I made you in my image! You have a purpose in this would. You may not know what it is yet, but you will soon! I gave you a learning disability because I know you could handle it out of all people. I want you to show Me through you in what I can do and to never give up faith in Me!” Right then and there, I dropped my sword and cried tears of joy because I was saved! My mom is a special Ed teacher so thank God, she knew what to do. I am now married to my best friend and he is in the army. We have a precious 13 month old son together. God is good!

Not Just A Challenge

For anyone taking the 30-Day-Challenge, they will be absolutely surprised at the type of music, the fun and, of course, always an uplifting message. Some may think the music is like church hymns or old dirges, but it’s not. It’s refreshing, contemporary, upbeat and uplifting. I start each morning listening and it puts me in a frame of mind to go to work and be positive knowing the love of Christ. God bless KSBJ for the work you do all over the world!

Coming Back From Homelessness

While I was living in a homeless shelter, I would listen to KSBJ on my transistor radio and when I had tapes would record my favorite songs so that I could listen to them any time. In 1999 I landed a very good job and so I had to start giving back to KSBJ for the many blessings and the encouragement received that kept me going. KSBJ reminded me to be brave, that God was with me, and I would overcome.  I prayed that a station close by would sell to KSBJ so there wouldn’t be so much interference and static.  I still have those tapes and play them every now and then just to remind me how far I have come and how far KSBJ has come. God is good. There is NO static or interruption now. You come in loud and clear. So nice!  Thank you for never giving up either! God bless all at KSBJ for keeping up the good work of reaching those out here who need something beautiful to hang on to!

KSBJ Listener

I have been a KSBJ listener since it first went on the air. I actually started listening to the old radio station, KFMK, as a teenager. When KFMK went off the air and it was announced that eventually a new Christian radio station would be back on the air, I was skeptical. I waited with anticipation and was thrilled when KSBJ was born. I have never felt the need to change this station. I am not familiar with any of the other stations and my grandchildren now ask me if they are going to listen to Jesus music when they get in my car. My granddaughter, who is 11, now falls asleep, listening to KSBJ. I have had many happy times and many sad times, and KSBJ has been my constant companion. I have been through a marriage, unfortunately a divorce, death in the family, having children, with one of them being in the military, and now being a proud grandmother.  I am privileged to be able to listen to KSBJ at work, also.  You have made me laugh and you have made me cry!  I honestly don’t know what I would do, without being able to listen to you. You have encouraged me tremendously!  Thank you for your ministry and may God bless you richly.

Sincerely,  Ruth

Isaiah’s Fall

I was in the gym when the phone rang and I chose to ignore it. My granddaughter, Addisyn, cousin to Isaiah, brought me the phone and looked me in the eyes telling me she believes I need to answer this. Her Aunt was almost unintelligible and distraught, but I understood there was an accident and life flight was involved. I drove to the apartment and Isaiah’s sister, my other granddaughter, Nevaeh, was strangely calm. She said Nana, “We need to pray. This is serious. There was blood everywhere.” I got her and her mother in the car, we called KSBJ, asked for prayer and the rest is history. The doctors thought he would have to relearn everything, but after 16 hours, he woke up, pulled the tubes out and asked why he was in the hospital. He still knew everyone, and wanted to swim and ride his bike like nothing had happened. He’s at grade level and spells and reads well. Hallelujah!! This was over two years ago around Easter and Isaiah still loves listening to God’s music on KSBJ.

30 Day Challenge Update

I took the 30 day challenge several years ago when my kids were very young.  KSBJ was playing on my car radio every day when we were riding in the car together.  I didn’t think they paid any attention to it.  Then one day the jingle played, “89.3…”  From the back seat I heard a chorus of “KSBJ!”  Then I realized they were hearing everything played on my radio!  It became very important to me that they heard the right messages and we’ve been listening ever since.

Thanks for blessing us every day with your ministry!
