Following Can Be a Good Thing!

You hear a lot about leading, but following can be a good thing, too! I went canoeing the other day and, after hacking through ice for about an hour, only made it about 100 feet. Don’t get me wrong, I was still glad to have made it that far, but it was quite a struggle…

Your Kids Need to Hear Your God Stories!

We were so encouraged! My 12-year-old and I heard an amazing story Saturday night from Mandy Harvey of America’s Got Talent. She was on the talent show last summer and captured the hearts of viewers with her beautiful voice and tremendous tale of perseverance in the middle of the darkest time. Mandy lost her hearing…


Your Story Shares Hope

THIS is Who I Am

I was really depressed and going to counseling to try to work all that out. When you’re depressed you kinda question who you are and why you’re around and why things happen. You kinda go, “Who am I in all of this thing called life?” When I was on the way to counseling, that song…

Forgotten in Prison

A lot of people are forgotten in prison. Thank you so much for remembering those who are in prison. Thank you so much for remembering me. Though we have made errors and are paying the price for what we have done, you have not forgotten about us. It’s a blessing just to know that people…

Twenty-four Seven

My husband died in March. My house burned down in December. WCIC stays on in my house 24/7. It just gives me peace, and it’s a extra blessing on top of my home. Everything there is encouraging, and we need to be encouraged. We need to let people out there know that tragedy happens, but joy…

Every Season of Life

It has just always been good. Every season of life, it’s neat to see the different songs that hit you. When you’re going through a tough season of life, you get the serious songs that just speak to your soul. It feels like they were written just for you and played at just the right…

Moved Away

I actually just moved from Normal to Pheonix, Arizona and I now do not have WCIC for my car ride which is a little strange. It’s amazing how even those ten minute drives from home to work in central Illinois made a difference. I was just listening to WCIC and singing along, and now it’s…


I ended up with a pretty serious drug and alcohol problem. It ended with me losing my marriage, my house, and my job. I went to treatment and got a job as a delivery driver. And I stumbled upon your radio station, and it nurtured my spiritual search for God. My whole vision of God…

Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Dealt With

I lean on the station often. I got diagnosed with cancer. I know what you’re supposed to do: trust in your faith; trust in God. All those things. But this has been the hardest thing I’ve ever dealt with. The absolute hardest. I switched over to WCIC because I needed it. – Matt from Downs


Going to school wasn’t easy because of bullying – not physical contact but a lot of harsh words and stuff like that. I like Jordan Feliz and the song Beloved. It just tells me how God appreciates me, that I am not forgotten, and that God knows me and loves me very much. – Tiden

Daughter Passed Away Two Years Ago

Right now my heart is just breaking in about a thousand different ways. My daughter who was fighting brain cancer passed away just two years ago. Then my brother died roughly this time last year. There’s always been an incredible amount of message in the music, and the words are powerful. Reconnecting with that and…

Grounded from Everything but Headphones

We’ve had some struggles with our 10-year-old. He has some behavioral issues. It’s a constant battle with him about what’s right and what’s wrong.  Being less impulsive. Doing the right thing. And he was grounded off all his electronics. The only thing he could have was his radio headphones, and he chose to listen to the…
