Rita Schulte: Heartline RadioHeartline Radio

In 2011, I created Heartline Radio to address the cutting edge mental health issues that are affecting our culture today. The show is designed to provide relevant content to educate, equip, and engage the culture in the awareness of how mental health disorders are affecting the hearts and minds of each of us. As the host of Heartline Radio, I talk with some of the top Christian counselors and authors in the country, as well as real people struggling with real life issues. My guests have included Dr. John Townsend, June Hunt, Lee Strobel, Kay Warren, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. Through thought provoking and candid interviews, I, along with my guests provide solid Biblical counsel and practical solutions on how to move through the difficulties of life. Heartline currently airs on Alive in Christ Radio, Blog Talk Radio and The Truth Network.

Consider This

I also host a sixty- second spot designed to challenge listeners to consider their lives through the lens of God’s truth called Consider This. My book, Shattered: Finding Hope and Healing through the losses of life is by Leafwood Publishers. Friend, I am no stranger to loss and suffering. In 2013, I lost my beloved husband to suicide and my world was decimated. I speak candidly about my loss(es) in the hope of helping others to heal.

Shattered: Finding Hope and Healing through the Losses of Life

Shattered: Rita SchulteToo many people today are suffering from the catastrophic effects of loss. This year 3 million people will die from disease alone, leaving loved ones grieving, not to mention millions more affected by divorce, suicide, the rise of mental health disorders, war/terrorism, abuse, and economic failure. These statistics reflect the gravity of losses in today’s culture.

Because most people equate loss primarily with death, many fail to notice that abstract losses of shattered dreams, unmet expectations, loss of hope, trust, even the loss of faith, can have serious long-range consequences on the heart.

Shattered explores how unidentified or unresolved loss impacts every area of life, especially our relationship with God. The long-range impact of these losses is often obscured, buried beneath the conscious surface in an attempt to avoid pain.

This book calls the reader to “notice” the losses of life. It explains how grief avoidance strategies like denial and control can keep us from fighting the battle to reclaim and reinvest our hearts after loss, and what faith-based strategies are necessary for healing.

Linking the age-old questions about the enigma of suffering to the grief experience, Shattered challenges the reader to decide about critical matters of faith and the heart. By stepping into the lives of those who have experienced loss and recovered with their faith still intact, this book offers the reader a faith based platform of hope by teaching “healing tasks of the heart” designed to facilitate secure attachment to God.

Shattered is now available online. Click here to pick up your copy today!

Welcome to Ambassadors for Christ Radio!   

Alive in Christ Radio Network:
Sundays: 9:00AM – 10:00AM Pacific

Savage Ministries International was founded in June 2006 in Panamá City, Republica de Panamá. Shawn and Caroline Savage are Ordained Ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The founder of Savage Ministries International and Ambassadors for Christ Radio (AFCR) is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who through Him all things are possible, as we focus on our heavenly Father’s plan for our lives. Our mission is based on the biblical discipleship principle to become Ambassadors for Christ, spread the Word of God, His Holy Bible, and make disciples out of men for the purpose of reconciliation to our Lord. Savage Ministries International accept our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and promote God’s Word. As Christians, we all should obey our Lord, operate by faith, and remain patient as our Lord fulfills His promises at His will.

“All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God” (2 Corinthians 5:18-20 NIV).

Following the footsteps of Jesus Christ is not easy and only true Disciples of Christ have a chance when they allow the Holy Spirit to control their lives as they give their hearts to God.

Both books share inspiring tips on how to serve Christ with a joyful heart and extend gratitude to our Lord regardless of personal situations. Reflecting upon biblical stories and applying God’s law to our behavior should mandate the way we behave. Every uncertainty that challenges us, the manner in which we should respond the reasoning is found in the Bible which is God’s Word and Will; His purpose for our existence.

Pertaining to the Great Commission, Jesus stated “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20 NIV).

Dr. James Dobson: Family Talk

April 30, 2011 by  
Filed under Dr. James Dobson, Features, Spotlight

Packed with the same insight and wisdom that Dr. Dobson has provided audiences for more than 30 years, “Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson” objectives are to help families and influence the culture — all of this is flowing out of a heart for spiritual transformation thru trust in Christ for every life.  It’s the voice you trust … for the family you love!

More than 30 years ago, Dr. James C. Dobson, Ph.D., founded Focus on the Family as a non-profit organization, established to undergird Christian values for families in today’s world.  What began as a radio program on a few stations in 1977 has grown to a network of more than 3000 facilities in North America (with thousands more in 160 countries worldwide) plus a daily commentary heard by more than 220 million people.

Undertaking a significant “recalibration” of ministry direction, Dr. Dobson began a transition out of leadership at Focus on the Family in 2003, which ultimately led to the conclusion of that long history with Focus as of February 2010.  Confident, however, of God’s continued call on his life, Dr. Dobson continues to speak to families through his program, Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson, which launched in May 2010.  In articulating the objectives for this new endeavor, Dr. Dobson has reiterated:  We will be dealing with childrearing, marriage, a wide variety of family topics, and of course, cultural and political issues.  Our country is facing desperate circumstances now, and the family needs all the help it can get.  Thus, we are circling back to 1977, when I left [USC] to address the same concerns.

Dr. Dobson began his “family focus” as an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Southern California School of Medicine, serving for 17 years on the Attending Staff of Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles in the Division of Child Development and Medical Genetics.  He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California (1967) in the field of child development.

With that platform of credentialed expertise, Dr. Dobson turned to writing; his first volume (Dare to Discipline) becoming a best-seller — as did those which followed including The Strong-Willed Child;  Love Must Be Tough; Life on the Edge; Night Light for Parents and When God Doesn’t Make Sense.  In April 2010, Bringing Up Girls (a much-anticipated companion to the popular Bringing Up Boys, 2002) will be released.

His first film series, Focus on the Family, has been seen by over 80 million people (and is currently undergoing re-release).  Subsequent video series include Turn Your Heart Toward Home (1986) and Life on The Edge, designed to help late teens bridge the gap between adolescence and young adulthood, (1994).  In 2002, an eleven-part series based on his best-selling book, Bringing Up Boys was released, and in 2005, he recorded the Focus on Your Child series which presents his time-honored childrearing principles to a new generation of parents.

Over the years, Dr. Dobson’s commitment has resulted in his being called upon for civic responsibilities related to the family.  He served on the task force which summarized the White House Conference on Families and received a special commendation from President Jimmy Carter in 1980.  He was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to the National Advisory Commission to the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, 1982-84.  He was appointed to Attorney General Edwin Meese’s Commission on Pornography (1985-86) and served with the Attorney General’s Advisory Board on Missing and Exploited Children (1987).  In December, 1994, Dr. Dobson was appointed by Senator Robert Dole to the Commission on Child and Family Welfare; and in October, 1996, he was appointed by Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott to the National Gambling Impact Study Commission.

That public service, in addition to the tremendous constituency of Focus on the Family, has afforded Dr. Dobson invitation to speak into the culture through a variety of channels including the widely-viewed Larry King Show, appearances on Fox and other national network programming, as well as before audiences in live settings across the country.

His unswerving devotion to the family has been honored by many organizations including being chosen as Layman of the Year by the National Association of Evangelicals (1982) and as “The Children’s Friend” (1987) by CHILDHELP USA.  He has been awarded honorary doctoral degrees from 17 universities including most recently Doctor of Divinity from Southern Evangelical Seminary (2008).  A member of the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame, Dr. Dobson also accepted the award on behalf of  Focus on the Family as the program was inducted in the National Radio Hall of Fame (Chicago 2008). In 2009, he was given the Ronald Reagan Lifetime Achievement Award by the Council for National Policy, and the Home School Legal Defense Association Lifetime Achievement Beacon of Liberty Award.

Dr. Dobson is married to Shirley whose leadership on behalf of the National Day of Prayer has been a longtime commitment.  The Dobsons have two grown children:  Danae, an accomplished author and speaker in her own right, and Ryan who will participate in the new broadcast, in addition to hosting his own ministry Internet radio program called KorKast. Ryan and his wife, Laura, are the proud parents of the Dobsons’ grandchild, Lincoln Cash.

Matt Fore :: The Truth Shall Make You Laugh

April 17, 2011 by  
Filed under Features, Matt Fore, Spotlight

The Truth Shall Make You Laugh

“Is it OK to laugh during your devotions? If not you should not listen to Matt Fore’s ‘The Truth Shall Make You Laugh.”

Filled with hilarious tales and humorous wit, this audible twist on your quiet time surprises you with encouragement and delights you with insights from ‘On High.” Relax, smile and enjoy the soulful piano sound as you soak up new revelation from the word of God. It’s the best 90 seconds of your day.”

Matt Fore was born at an early age on October 26, 1958 in the small mountain village of Morristown Tennessee or it may have been somewhere up north. Anyway, for a while he was all pinkish and could barely see or speak. His hands were so small that he had to use bridge size playing cards to do a one handed cut and Hofzinger spread control because the standard blue backed Tally Ho poker cards were too big. He spent what seemed like months just lying around and drinking. Fifty some odd years later he is a professional magician, sleight of hand artist and entertainer with over twenty five years of experience having performed, in that time, for literally dozens of people.

Matt’s interest in trickery began when he was still very short. He had a very keen and alert brain and a very keen and alert brain as well as a brain that very alert and keen. Naturally he wanted to be a nuclear physicist but his parents encouraged him to be a sleight of hand artist. “Go where the money is!” they would say and they were right as today he earns, let’s just say, four figures. There is no doubt that he will someday be a world famous magician so if you book him now you will be able to say that you knew Matt Fore when he was absolutely nobody.

Matt currently lives in East Tennessee and spends much of his time on the road as the featured entertainer for many corporate functions, churchwide events, sports evangelism celebrations, banquets and conventions. He has performed throughout the Carribean on Carnival Cruise Lines and was an opening act for Crystal Gayle. He has appeared in a music video with Taylor Swift and has performed on several national TV Shows including the Crook & Chase show on TNN, Fox Sports and The Dennis Swanburg Show. He has also performed numerous times at the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood California.

But the list doesn’t stop there. Matt has also performed at Carnegie Hollister’s birthday party, The Grand Ole Opportunity House and Johnny Carson Smith’s Wholesale Pork and Packaging. He has also attended concerts by some very famous groups including Three Dog Night and The Marshall Tucker Band and has watched many famous television programs. He wears a size 11 shoe. Sometimes 10 1/2 depending on the brand because some brands are too narrow causing unnecessary discomfort and unexplainable facial expressions at the wrong time. Like when someone is telling a joke.

Note: portions underlined are true

Reaching Your World with Luis Palau is an exclusive feature heard within each new edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE.

Luis Palau’s daily one-minute and two-minute English feature equips individuals like you to effectively share your faith. It answers questions like: How do you start conversations about Christ? How do you talk to an atheist? How do you witness to your children?

Luis Palau (loo-EES puh-LAOW) and his ministry have shared the Gospel with more than 1 billion people through evangelistic events and media. He has spoken in person to 25 million people in 72 countries with more than 1 million registered decisions for Jesus Christ. He has authored close to 50 books and countless articles on issues of faith, and has counseled with business and political leaders and heads of state around the world.

Luis’ radio broadcasts in both English and Spanish are heard by millions on 3,000 radio outlets in 48 countries. His outstanding and significant contribution to the field of Christian communications was recognized in 2008 with the National Religious Broadcasters William Ward Ayer Distinguished Service Award.

Luis Palau festivals have produced some of the largest audiences ever recorded in cities from south Florida to South America. His ministry also includes a number of alliances that allow partners in ministry to connect, draw from Palau’s vast experience, and become equipped to reach the world for Christ. More than 200 evangelists are currently a part of the Next Generation Alliance®, and the Livin It® Alliance is dedicated to action sports ministries, film and video outreaches.

His book, A Friendly Dialogue Between an Atheist and a Christian, quickly became a bestseller in China and released in the United States in February 2008.

Luis and his wife, Pat, live in Portland, Oregon, where they have twelve grandchildren and four sons, three of whom are actively involved with the ministry
