Highlights from Letters to Power 88


  • I just love listening to Power 88. Most of my friends think I'm uncool because I listen to you, which has white people's songs and I'm Black! But I don't care! I love listening to Godly music!"  Chickasaw AL



  • Hi my name is xxx and I'm 15 years old. The song "Last Night" really touched me because I have been going through some rough times with my family and I realized that I'm not going through this alone. I've got my friends and God on my side to help me get through this. It's a really God song to listen to for kids and adults alike. If you ever feel down maybe from depression or maybe you have gone through abuse and you feel worthless, just listen to that song and you'll learn that you don't have to go through this alone you have friends and family and God on your side to help you in your time of need. I'm just glad to know all this and I'm lucky because my friend had me listen to this song and if I had never heard it then I would be more upset then I am now. Thank you Power 88 for playing that song and getting it out there for others to hear and be comforted by it.

Establishing boundaries – and relationship – with your teen


My husband, Gene, had given our daughter Katie permission to go to a friend's home. Later in the day, something didn't seem right, so Gene called the friend's house and asked to talk to Katie. He soon realized that Katie was not at her friend's house. And that's when I got the call declaring, "Katie's gone!"

Katie returned home that evening. Her story of going to a friend's house was a sneaky cover to see a boy we did not approve of. And it would only be the beginning of her stories. Read More

How Debt Is Killing the American Dream

Dave Ramsey

A recent study by the Pew Charitable Trusts found that 8 out of 10 Americans hold some form of debt. Seven out of 10 believe debt is "necessary." Of the survey respondents, 85% said they use debt to live beyond their means.


The obsession with debt isn’t biased to any generation either. Around 80% of baby boomers have debt while 47% are still paying off their mortgage. And it’s not uncommon for Gen X’ers to have six digits worth of debt. Read the story here
