Rick Wilson
One of Rick’s favorite sayings used to be a phrase credited to President Harry S Truman: “You can accomplish anything in life, provided that you do not mind who gets the credit.” Rick was good at living life that way and reasoned it to be consistent with God’s call to humility. That seed developed strong roots that grew from a will to rely on his own abilities to manage everything in life. However, on August 9, 2019 life changed forever for Rick, and his family, when he received the diagnosis that he had ALS (often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a terminal neurodegenerative disease with no known cure. Rick recalls that the only real choice their family had was how it would change them? Would they run to the Lord or run away from Him? Rick chose to run to Him and that has made all the difference. You will be encouraged as you listen to Rick share his story of how God transformed his mindset from “I can do all things” to a true completion of Philippians 4:13 “…through Christ who strengthens me.”

Hedy Wiebe
One moment in time can change the course of our whole lives. On July 31, 1999, life as she knew it stopped for Hedy Wiebe. While she and a friend were driving on a Manitoba highway, a van ran a stop sign, and they hit the passenger side of the van head-on with enough force to send them rolling. Sitting in the passenger seat, Hedy suffered extreme trauma to both her body and her mind. Her injuries included broken ribs and ankles, abdominal trauma, tendon and muscle injuries. Add a closed head injury and it would take years of rehabilitation before she could truly begin to heal. Throughout the trauma, God’s presence and the blessing of ministering angels kept Hedy’s spirit alert and vibrant. Dealing with the pain, the frustration, and the discouragement gave her a new understanding of Christ being courage deep in our hearts. There’s a Place Deep inside Called Courage will inspire readers in all seasons of life to seek God’s healing touch and to trust Him completely to meet every need. It is a testimony of faith to the glory of God."

It has been a challenging season for Indigenous communities, and the alarming numbers of tragedies have prevented community members from grieving properly. First Peoples Voices Producer, Crystal Lavallee brings us a special report on what the realities are on the ground and how we can all rally in prayer. Joining Crystal to talk about this is Roberta Fiddler. Roberta speaks to the realities of the deaths Indigenous communities are facing right now, and how the body of Christ in Canada can be praying. In her words “when I hear there are others praying, who are not Indigenous, it just shows me the love of the body of Christ!” To learn about the Prayer Rally and how to join, please visit: http://firstpeoplesvoices.ca

Ben Courson
When it comes to defeating depression, the most important thing you can do is to look to the Strong One for strength. You don’t have to go it alone. You shouldn’t. If you want to get your head and heart in the right space, you need to start with prayer. Scientists have discovered that when people are intentional and focused in their prayers the frontal lobe of the brain is stimulated, firing up the neutrons to perform at peak intellectual capacity. In other words, a lifestyle based around talking with God is great for your brain. http://bencourson.com

Hope Darst
Over the past 15 years, Hope Darst, has been leading worship, growing her family and serving the local church. She wears many titles…wife, mother, worship leader and songwriter. In 2013, after a decade of being in full-time ministry and on staff at her local church, Hope found herself in a season of transition as she focused on being a full-time mom. During this time, Hope and her family visited a small gathering of people in a basement and encountered the presence of God in a new way. “I had been “doing ministry” for so long that I had ignored so many parts of my heart and life that needed ministry. I was desperate for healing and a fresh encounter with God. That year of rest became the foundation for discovering a new way of living with Christ. Week after week I would enter God’s presence during worship and the word and experience deep emotional and mental healing that I had long thought was impossible.” This “gathering” would eventually become what is now The Belonging Co. church. After a few years, Hope found herself leading worship again and being part of the songwriting team at The Belonging Co. A renewed passion begin to grow. “God really had to deconstruct so many of my paradigms about praise and worship during that season. For so many years, I lead from a place of needing approval, but as God began to heal my heart and mind I began to lead worship from a place of humility, vulnerability and intimacy. Everything I do is now rooted in the belief that God truly wants us to live in freedom - from parenting, friendships, marriage, songwriting, leading - the goal is to live in freedom in every area of our lives and bring others in to the awareness that God wants to set them free too.” In 2020, Hope signed her first recording contract with Fair Trade Music Services. She is set to release her first single, “Peace Be Still” in February 2020 to be followed by a full album. Hope also appears on both albums released by The Belonging Co. ,“All the Earth” and “Awe+Wonder”. You can find Hope’s music on all platforms. Hope has been married to the love of her life, David, for 15 years. They live in Nashville, TN with their two daughters Olivia and Brooklyn. http://hopedarst.com
