Jonathan Walerstein Interview

No picture due to privacy.

Jonathan was raised both secular and religious Jewish growing up and his great grandfather planted five synagogues in a mid west city near Chicago.  Jonathan is the first believer on either side of his family. 

Enjoy some great Messianic music!

Kim Spencer Returns!

I am so excited to share this encouraging interview.   If you have ever been depressed or know someone who is suffering, this program is for you!

Also I picked some songs about Purim, based on the book of Esther.  

Here is a little background about Kim in her own words:

"I grew up in a Jewish family celebrating all the holidays.  I had the ‘normal life’ of partying with friends and going out to bars…searching for the right one to fall in love and live happily ever after…with no success.  One night I had an encounter with Jesus (Yeshua) in a dream and He told me to become “Born Again.” I fell in love with the written Word of God. Eventually God gave me the BEST husband, Mark & a beautiful son named Micah.  In January 2011-July 2016, I began to experience fear, anxiety, and depression to the point of suicide and had adopted many addictions.  There were emotions and past experiences that had caused pain that were lying dormant and not dealt with properly. Eventually, I could no longer function like a normal human being. I knew the written word backwards and forwards, but I DID NOT KNOW & FULLY EXPERIENCE THE LIVING WORD.  In August of 2016, the Holy Spirit began to do surgery on my heart and the Spirit became my PERSONAL Counselor! I began to hear His voice and He (the Spirit) brought up situations that had occurred in the past (as well as presently) on how to handle them.   My Heavenly Father, Jesus (Yeshua) & with the help of (my personal counselor) the Spirit, had set me free from EVERY addiction and I no longer live for his presence, but in it.  Like God told Abraham (Gen. 15:1) “I AM SHIELD AND GREAT REWARD” and now He has become mine!!!! And I am SO IN LOVE WITH MY LORD!  I am in the process of a rewriting a Bible Study to help others get free and experience this EXTRAVAGANT LOVE."

Shimrit Hanes Back on Bagels and Blessings

What a joy to reconnect with Shimrit Hanes from Zemer Levav.  Shimrit is a songwriter, vocalist and harpist.  When chronic illness forced her and her husband to stop touring, they settled in Florida and Shimrit turned to writing novels.  Music is still important to her and she continues writing new songs and playing her harp.  This interview focuses on her novels and will feature the music of Zemer Levav.
