Daniel Chadwick

There was a VERY handsome man in the studio today!  OK, I am a tiny bit biased.   You see my husband, Daniel, decided to join me today and I was thrilled!  Daniel teaches Religion, Ethics and Philosophy online for 5 colleges and has a unique understanding of the scriptures!  He was raised in a Lutheran home and began reading the Bible as a literary work long before he knew the Lord.

He studied Hebrew, Greek (and other languages too) and is able to understand scripture in a scholarly way.

Today we discussed similarities and differences between the Jewish Bible, or Tanakh, and the Christian Old Testament, which is slightly different (the books are in a different order, etc.)

It was a stimulating discussion and I am inspired to spend more time in the Word of God!

Ron Cantor Again!

It's been a few years since I interviewed fellow Virginian Ron Cantor on Bagels and Blessings!  Yes, we both grew up in Richmond but didn't know each other.  Probably because I'm older (shh!!).

Ron is an excellent author, speaker and evangelist and recently he completed his latest book, "Birth Pangs."  It's really excellent and relevant to our current situation with Covid-19, politics, the End Times, Black Lives Matter, and much more.   I highly recommend it.   

For more info look here: or for his other books look here:

In his own words:

"Here is a little bit about me. I serve as the CEO of Tikkun International and presently I host a daily TV show called "Out of Zion" on GODTV.  

    I was born into a Jewish home, circumcised and Bar Mitzvah'd, but I did not know God! I realized at age 17, there must be more. This led me on a journey where I discovered that Yeshua (Jesus), whom I thought was for the Gentiles, was in fact, the Jewish Messiah.

    I received my degree from Messiah Biblical Institute and served as the Associate Rabbi at Beth Messiah Messianic congregation in Rockville, MD until we moved to Odessa, Ukraine to work in the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute. In Ukraine we birthed a congregation in the city upon which Fiddler on the Roof was based, Berdichev. We then moved to Budapest, Hungary.

    In 1999 we accepted an invitation to teach Jewish Roots at the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry. In 2003 my wife Elana, a native Israeli, and I, along with our girls, made aliyah (moved to Israel). I served as the co-pastor and interim senior pastor of King of Kings Community in Jerusalem.

    During this time we birthed the Isaiah 2 Initiative, taking Israeli young adults to third world nations to preach the message of Yeshua. In Nigeria we saw many miracles and tens of thousands profess faith in Yeshua. 

     In 2013 I agreed to become the lead pastor of Tiferet Yeshua, a Hebrew-speaking congregation in Tel Aviv. Three years later we turned the congregation over to a native-born Israeli, and, while still functioning as an elder there, I now serve as CEO of Tikkun International, a global Messianic family of 40-plus congregations and ministries in Israel and the US, and beyond, including our own congregation, Tiferet Yeshua." 

Today is also Sukkot so I played some music from Nancy Santiago, Steve McConnell, Marty Goetz and Liberated Wailing Wall.

Corry Bell-Keeler & Randy Keeler!

Yes, the newly-weds are here!   Last time I talked with Corry she was sharing how the Lord helped her through many hardships, the worst of which was the unexpected death of her son Beau.  Here is a wonderful, refreshing look at what God has done for her since that last interview.   We will get to hear from her husband, Randy, too.

Enjoy some great Lev Shelo songs too!

Sam & Heather Walker

I met Pastor Sam and Heather Walker in the fall of 2018 at the Messianic Leaders Roundtable in Phoenix, Arizona.   They had just lost their house in the horrific Paradise, CA Campfire that destroyed the whole town.  I was blown away at their faith and joy in the midst of such devastation.   Now, almost two years later and still technically homeless, they remain faithful to Adonai.

Here's an update on what's happening.   May you be inspired.   I know I am!

Enjoy wonderful music from Jonathan Settel, Steve McConnell, Paul Wilbur, Greg Silverman and Deborah Kline Iantorno.

Sid Roth Interview

 This was originally aired in 1998!  That would have been my 2nd year on air --- and now it's been 23 years!   Where or where has the time gone?

I had a lot of difficulty getting this to record.   I won't go into all the details but it seemed as if the enemy was doing a lot to keep it off the air!

So please pardon the humming and other distortions.   Praise God I got most of it!!!

May the Lord bless you and heal you as you hear this wonderful testimony -- and enjoy the music!

Gail Sanders-Burdick Interview

I have been wanting to get together with Gail for years!  We have a mutual friend and I knew that Gail had a story to tell.  Well hallelujah - today was the day!   This sweet Jewish believer was live in the studio and described the events leading up to her believing in Yeshua.

She grew up in a Reformed Jewish home and was a good girl.   By the time Gail got to college she was pretty much an agnostic and very disappointed that God wasn't helping her to be happy.   But some amazing events happened -- and well, you will just have to listen to find out!

Enjoy music from Jonathan Settel, Paul Wilbur, Miqedem, Ted pearce, Elana Watson, Lamb and The Schleps!!
