Pulse 101.7FM board member, David Nadler, shares his story:
When I was a senior in high school, I listened to a band called Korn before my swimming meets to get myself pumped up (angry) before I swam.
It was very effective and my pre-swimming routine that year got me to the state meet. About 3 hours before I swam the last race, God spoke to me and told me that he had something different for me – that I was supposed to give up that band. Right then, not after I swam. It hit me hard to say the least. The thought of giving up my routine, right before what at the time seemed like a very important event, was super challenging. But I listened to Him and it really changed the course of one part of my life.
Which is awesome.
Korn was vile, and terrible for my spirit.
Now that I have kids, it’s important to Kate and I that we have music that speaks truth into our hearts. It’s just as important that we give them music that is relevant to their peers. As they’re moving into having friends that we don’t pick for them, I know that their choices will open up and that they may make decisions I don’t love (perhaps even listening to music like Korn : ). But it is important to me that we give them options that are solid, pure and move their spirits toward God and His kingdom.
I’ve been involved with Pulse 101.7 since the early days, and over the last 17 years, this music has blessed my spirit day in and day out. I still listen to “other” music some of the time, but Pulse is my home base – for me and my family. For encouragement, for grounding, for blessing.
Kate and I have decided that this station is a part of the Kingdom work we see God doing in our city and in our family and we want to stay a part of it and see it grow. My hope is that my boys will return to it often as they struggle to become men and learn what it means to serve God.
Tomorrow, Pulse launches their spring fundraiser in hopes that a few hundred people will stand side by side and make a commitment to our city to support the station.
I’m inviting you to be a part of that team with Kate and I.
Would you please consider making a gift to the station today?
Pledges can range anywhere from $10 one-time to sponsoring a full day of programming @ $840 – or you can choose to be a monthly partner at $30 a month. I’d sincerely appreciate it if you will talk it over with your family and see what God is asking of you!
