    Women With Unplanned Pregnancies Deserve A Safe Place

    Women With Unplanned Pregnancies Deserve A Safe Place

    Darathea Lathan knows what women need when they're facing an unexpected pregnancy. They need love.

    They need space to breathe and room to relax and sort out the complicated and anxious emotions and thoughts running through their hearts and minds.

    And she knows that God has given her a passion for that in Anchorage, Alaska where she calls home.

    Healing Under Gods Miracle Expectancy (HUG ME) is a ministry dream Darathea has to reach women with compassion, grace and service by providing a physical space for them to get beyond the coercion and cultural pressure they often face to end the life of their pre-born child and make it just go away.

    She knows that is a short term fix that causes real long term pain and regret.

    Darathea is my guest on the podcast/broadcast and I'd be grateful if you could join in.  Now, as much as ever, women with unexpected pregnancies need a place to reflect and lean into the reality that the Body of Christ is there for them...and their child.

    Nick Begich the Third Is In The House

    Nick Begich the Third Is In The House

    Nick Begich III, or NB3 as many nowadays are referring to him, is certainly in his element when speaking individually to someone or on a bigger stage.

    He most definitely inherited that casual, folksy, even keeled tempo from the Begich family tree. His Uncle Mark is legendary for it.

    But NB3 fell far from the family tree when it comes to his political leanings. Growing up in Florida with his maternal grandparents in a Christian environment shaped Nick in a way that has propelled him to a neck and neck race with the one and only Sarah Palin for Alaska's sole Congressional seat.

    I'm honored and excited to chat with him on I'm Glad You Said That tomorrow. I also love how he has made it clear, in our interview, that "Alaskans shouldn't fear a Constitutional Convention."  That's a mantra we need to get out statewide between now and November 8th.

    Enemies Within The Church

    Enemies Within The Church

    As first century churches were established by followers of Christ, it didn’t take long for false teachings to creep in through people with persuasive personalities and ideologies. In response, Paul and others needed to constantly point out to churches those things that misrepresented God and His Word to keep professing Christians from going astray.
    Paul wrote, “…mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them” Romans 16:17.
    Today, a tidal wave of false teaching has flooded evangelical churches, seminaries, colleges, schools and bookstores. Some of the most notable evangelical leaders are propagating a Christian-sounding version of Critical Theory, known colloquially as Woke-ism. This is the false idea that oppressive “systemic injustice”—by whites toward blacks, men toward women, heterosexuals toward homosexuals and those struggling with gender identity—is the rule and reason for the ills that afflict the nation and church and therefore “equity” or “social justice” must be enacted.

    Today, on "I'm Glad You Said That", I'm joined by Chris Prosch whose firm helped produce and distribute the documentary called Enemies Within The Church. 

    Although Solomon tells us there is nothing new under the sun, and false teachers have been with us since the Garden, it is important to understand the times we are in and be able to engage and discern where and when we have been placed by God. This documentary provides insight for that high calling and is definitely worth the watch.

    AK Needs More Conservative Smart Leaders - Here's How That Is Happening

    Bethany Marcum heads up the Alaska Policy Forum and is a state treasure in terms of what it means to be an exemplary leader. Principled. Articulate. Well Prepared. Grounded. Strategic.

    I'm thrilled to have Bethany on "I'm Glad You Said That" today to discuss why this program is needed.

    According to their website, the Academy "will train, inform, equip and connect experienced and emerging leaders in Alaska on the founding principles of our country, and explore how those apply to the challenges our state and nation face today. Graduates will be positioned to grow as visionary and principled thought leaders who can guide Alaska’s freedom and future. Outstanding instructors from around the country will facilitate the monthly sessions and and present on topics such as the free market, ethical leadership, on-camera media training, Alaska’s constitution, crisis management, and much more."

    Convention of States is Tied to AK Constitutional Convention - Here's Why

    Convention of States is Tied to AK Constitutional Convention - Here's Why

    Did you know that more than 40,000 Alaskans have signed a petition calling for the Convention of States to place restrictions on the Federal Government ?

    Or how about that Alaska was one of the first states to pass a resolution calling for the Convention ?

    Is there a tie in to what is going on with the Federal Convention of States and the current effort to call for an Alaska State Constitutional Convention ?

    Most certainly.

    My guest today on "I'm Glad you Said That" is Keith Heim who is the State Director for the Convention of States.

    CLICK HERE to download the podcast and listen now to our conversation.

    Although Alaska has joined the ranks of states that have said we need to impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress, there is still work to be done.

    Tune in to find out what that is.
