In life, we often may wonder if there is an easier way to do things and that is exactly where the life hack was born! Recently, Jeff & Rebecca got together to share some of their favorite life hacks! Enjoy!1. Using Syringe To Remove SplinterPut the small hole at the bottom of the syringe as best you can over the splinter. Once you know you're above it, make sure the syringe is touching the skin-and pull! Make sure there's no gaps otherwise you won't get it! The syringe will more than likely pull it out in the first go!2. Do The Battery "Drop Test" To See If They're Dead Or NotDrop each battery (with the flat, negative end down) from a couple of inches up. If the battery is charged, it should make a solid thud and most likely stay standing. If, however, the battery is dead, it will bounce and fall over immediately.3. Using Sunglasses As An Impromptu Cell Phone StandDon't worry about stuffing a dedicated media stand into your bag or cobbling together a DIY stand from parts you scavenge at the office. This hack works best with sunglasses or prescription glasses for the nearsighted—farsighted people, of course, need their glasses to see the media player screen clearly. All you do is lay the glasses upside down with the temple pieces curve-up, open the temple pieces slightly, and rest the smart phone on them. You'll need to adjust them to get the temple pieces out of the way of the screen. The texture and curve of the temple pieces on most glasses is just right for propping the phone up.4. Put Pancake Batter In A Ketchup Bottle To Avoid MessesNo more mess! Every time we make pancakes, we end up dripping batter all over the counter! Problem solved. Take an empty ketchup bottle and put the pancake batter in it, then squeeze it onto the griddle. Simple as that! 5. When Ironing The Button Side Of A Shirt, Flip It Inside OutWhen ironing a button-up shirt, flip it inside-out to easily iron over the button side. Isn't this genius?
Up and coming artist, Mallary Hope, who several years back was already established as a successful country music artist stopped by the studio to talk with Jeff & Rebecca! She shares about some new music that she has coming out in the near future while also doing something that she has never done for any other radio station in the world!
Author and Bible Teacher, Paige Henderson who is the Co-Founder of Fellowship of the Sword ministries & The Quest Life says that instead of "counting our blessings", we need to instead count our days because if you want to see God's hand as he works in your life, you'll have a deeper experience if you look at your days and count how long he has provided for you. Recently, Paige just celebrated her 20,000th day on Earth so it prompted Jeff & Rebecca to do the same. Rebecca found out that today she is 16,386 days old and Jeff is actually 300 days away from 20,000! So, will you count your days today?
After a long 2 weeks and a roller coaster of emotions, medical visits, and surgeries, both Jeff & Rebecca are back in the same studio again! If you were at HeartStrong Faith 2019, you definitely saw Rebecca make a surprise entrance as she introduced Chrystal-Evans Hurst. For all of you who have prayed tirelessly over Rebecca during her recovery journey, we can't thank you enough for all that you've done as it's no doubt that Rebecca felt your prayers during this trying time. Of course, if you've known Rebecca at all, she is somebody that has a lot on her plate: speaking engagements, KCBI Morning Show, Dallas Theological Seminary, and of course, being a wife to Mike and a mother to Nick and Kaitlyn.It was during this time, that she was forced to slow down and address some things that she's been avoiding. I know that reading the Bible can often be something that we have to do and not something we GET to do. When Rebecca was forced to slow down, she was reminded that God is faithful and is near. When you read His word, you are actively making deposits in your heart, but one thing we forget is that at some point, we will have to write some checks. Just know that despite the trials and tribulations you will face being a follower of Christ that pursuing God and his promises is by far the greatest investment you could ever make!
Many of you have been wondering where Jeff & Rebecca have been over the last week and so we decided to let you all know what's been happening. Jeff has been out all week due to a deviated septum surgery on his nose but last week, Rebecca started to experience quite a bit of pain in her back and neck which prompted what has been a crazy week. Here is the update from her husband Mike:"She had a herniated disk that flared up earlier last week. We came to the ER last Wednesday for pain relief and then saw the spine doctor the next day. Anyway, we were scheduled for a cortisone shot the following Tuesday but by that night, the pain was unbearable. We came back to the ER and they attempted to get on top of the pain, but nothing worked."So as a result, they admitted her into the hospital for surgery and praise God, the surgery was a success! They had to remove a disc in her back and actually fuse two discs together once they were finished. The pinched nerve pain is virtually gone and she says that she hasn't felt this good in a while. However, while this is great news, this also begins a pretty long process of recovery for Rebecca as it will take her several weeks to fully gain the movement in her neck and back area so we just ask that you continue to pray for her as you know Rebecca. ;)
