LESSONS FROM OUR FEATHERED FRIENDS If you’ve been a friend of Hour of Power for a while, you know that during the first quarter of the year we dive into the Biblical significance and symbolism of birds. It’s a time when we honor our faithful Eagle and Sparrow Partners, and we invite you to be a part of this special group of friends to this ministry. In Bible times, teachers loved to use imagery of nature to explain the ways of the world. Various birds are mentioned throughout the scripture, with the dove holding the number one spot for frequent mentions. The dove has a vast array of symbols attached to it, most notably peace and love, and its most powerful symbolism is found in the Spirit of God appearing as a dove. The second-most mentioned bird in the Bible is the tiny sparrow, which is a powerful reminder of God’s love

Give Thanks All Year Long Have you ever heard of the term, Chreasters? If you have, you’re probably chuckling right now.Chreasters is a slang word that describes people who only go to church on Christmas and Easter. These people can also be referred to as “Two-Timers,” or “Poinsettia and Lily Christians.” I bring this up in light of Thanksgiving approaching, the one time of year where many of us take turns around the dinner table and say what we are thankful for. If you’ve never done this before, I urge you to suggest it this year. Personally, I think it’s a great idea to be doing this all year long, not just once a year — just like we should be celebrating and honoring the birth and resurrection of our Savior in our hearts every day.  What Are You Thankful For?  Going around the dinner table at Thanksgiving and allowing

From Hannah’s Heart: You Can Be Healed and Whole

I’m a part of an amazing ministry that has one of the best choirs and music in the world. So, I’m embarrassed to say I’ve always been a terrible singer. I did not grow up singing… anytime my family attempted to sing we would end up laughing at how bad we sounded. You know the feeling you get when you think about sky diving? That’s the feeling I get when I try to sing.  A few years ago I started taking voice lessons. “Singing will be a joy in my life not an intimidation,” I decided. My voice teacher, Sarah Grandpre, has me practice small techniques over and over and over to break old habits and train new ones. Some techniques are so small they seem silly to practice but they are important. Sarah once said, “Practicing a technique over and over again is like creating a new hiking path.

After five days in the Netherlands, they embarked on the second leg of their journey to Germany, where they ministered in the cities of Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, and Leipzig! At each venue in these beautiful European cities, large crowds lined up to hear from Bobby & Hannah and to meet and greet them afterward! Not only were audiences blessed by hearing a special message from Bobby, they also enjoyed
