Climate Change

Could we be closer than we realize to Spiritual awakening in our area? One of my favorite family memories is hiking through Finger Rock Canyon in Arizona with all the tall, green cactus. The Sonoran desert climate is the only place on earth with the right temperature range, sunshine, and moisture to support the saguaro.…


You Brought Hope Behind Prison Walls

Prison is not a place known for hope; not usually, at least. But on June 9, you helped change that by making it possible for Unspoken to perform inside Hill Correctional Center in Galesburg! Approximately 350 inmates attended two concerts that afternoon in the prison gymnasium. The men heard songs filled with encouraging lyrics and…


Make it a Summer to Remember!

Let’s spend less time on screens and more time making memories with friends and family this summer! Whether you head to the pool, go camping, catch lightning bugs in your backyard… If you share how you and your loved ones are making this summer one for the books, you’ll be in the running to win…


Pray for Bowen

You may have read some of Bowen’s story when Matt Hammitt, his dad, released the song Tears. Today Bowen and his family need your prayers. Words from Matt Hammitt (Lead Me, Tears, Confidence), former lead singer of Santcus Real: Bowen endured his first open heart surgery in 2010. It’s hard to believe that was eight…


Page 6 – Kevin & Jamie Crosier

If your goal in life is to be happy, what do you do when your marriage makes you unhappy? Kevin and Jamie Crosier had been so happy when they met, dated, and got married. But after a child and an affair, happiness was long gone. Jamie was certain divorce was the answer. And Kevin had…


Your Story Shares Hope

Consolation After Mother’s Death

I lost my mom unexpectedly in March of 2017. I struggled to move past my anger with God for taking her. Around that time, Colton Dixon’s song “The Other Side” started playing on WCIC and it helped me finally start moving on. But the biggest effect the song had on me was on the 1st…

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…
