Quotes

I drive one hour each way back and forth for work Monday through Friday&sometimes on the weekend. WGRC is always on the radio when I am in the car. The uplifting music and Christian programs are treasured opportunities for me to worship God and help me stay centered throughout the day. A few years ago, my son was killed in a motorcycle accident. I took a week off from work but then had to go back. It was all I could do to keep myself together during the months after his death and the hour drive each way for work was unbearable at times. I always kept WGRC on the radio and would focus on the message in the music&the scriptures that were shared which many times felt like they were directed at me at the time I needed it most. I know this was God’s way of holding me in the palms of his hands to assure me that he was with me. It was a very painful time but I felt His presence and gradually a peace that those without faith in God could never understand. (Williamsport)
