Welcome to the Friday Roundup.  Today we do a quick review of each of the episodes this week.  
It is rarely fun to be criticized.  Yet, as long as we are living we will not be able to escape other people's judgement of us. Today we look at how we can deal with criticism and keep it from knocking us down or stopping us.  
This children's prayer was written almost 300 years ago, yet we still teach it to our children and grandchildren today.  Today's story is about a father who learned something new from his son as the boy prayed.

Corrie ten Boom and her sister Betsie were interred in Ravensbruch Concentration Camp,  in 1942 for aiding Jews to escape the Nazi holocaust.   Corrie's book, The Hiding Place, is devoted to their time there.  While most are familiar with who Corrie is, Betsie is the less well known of the two sisters.  Mostly because she died in the camp in 1944. But, it was Betsie who often taught and encouraged Corrie during their imprisonment.  Today we look at one of the most important lessons that Betsie and Corrie learned from an unexpected, and very annoying source.

I grew up going to church.  As I look back at that time, two of the best things that happened were that I learned to memorize Bible verses, and I learned many of the old hymns.  If we lean those things early on, they will stick with you throughout your life.  Today we look at a man whose life was saved by Bible verses and old hymns.
Today is our Friday Roundup, where we do a quick review of each of our podcasts of the past week.  Have a listen today and if there is a podcast that you didn't hear in its entirety, you can go back and catch it in the podcast history.Have a great weekend everyone.  We will be back on Monday.

The past year has brought a lot of stress into our lives and our relationships. One of the crazy things that we do is we dump our stress, frustration, and anger on those we love the most.  With Valentines Day just a few days away it may be time to check ourselves and ask how well we are doing with showing the people that we love the most, how much we really do love them.

Darlene and Mark were facing a very difficult time. Mark was struggling with a failing motorcycle parts business and it was becoming all but impossible to support Darlene and their two young children. What happened next involved an old beat-up piano, a verse from Isaiah, and a very nervous Darlene auditioning a song to her pastor.  The rest is history.  Here is the Youtube link to her song.  https://youtu.be/5_aIauL2xKA
The roots carry the nutrients to the plant to allow it to flourish.  The same is true for us. Our roots are planted in the priorities and influences of our lives.  The result of where we plant our roots will determine how we face the people, problems, and pandemics that we face.
Here is the Friday Roundup for this week.  And it was a really good week. Today we present the highlights from our Monday to Thursday episodes.  You will hear the week's worth of encouragement all wrapped up in today's 5 minutes.  Have a great weekend.

Much of the time Noah's story has been relegated to the children's stories of the Bible.  We learn it, often repeatedly, in Sunday School but rarely have I heard a sermon about Noah. Yet there are some great lessons for us from his obedience to God in the story of the ark.  Join us today as we look at 8 Lessons from Noah.
