Rebecca Kiessling trusts God because otherwise, she couldn't possibly deal with the disappointments and losses that have come into her life. Rebecca was adopted at birth, but 18 years later she learned she was conceived out of a brutal rape at knife-point by a serial rapist. "I’d never considered that abortion applied to my life, but once I received this information, all of a sudden I realized that, not only does it apply to my life, but it has to do with my very existence." This is a story that will prove God's love...and a faith big enough to accept that love.
Robert Kilo, Senior Director of Advancement at Center for Christian Virtue, shares with us today the importance of voting for LIFE at the state level. "The mission of CCV is to seek the good of our neighbors by advocating for public policy that reflects the truth of the Gospel." Robert is humble and kind, but God has planted a strong heart in this man to protect the unborn. "Vote LIFE", says Robert.
Today's guest is Simon Woodstock. Yes...I'm sure that last name brings back the days of Woodstock...but it's not Simon's story. As a strong leader, he shares the ministry he leads as the Director of Assure Pregnancy located in San Bernadino County, California. Men....take notice!
Dr. Patti Giebink, MD
Kind listener, I asked Dr. Patti Giebink, MD to join us again because she is a wealth of information of the things physicians are asked or required to do. Her testimony has caused me to pray fervently for all physicians to stop doing abortions in our country that claims FREEDOM for ALL--born and unborn!
Dr. Patti Giebink, MD.
I watched an interview with Dr. Patti Giebink, MD, and I knew I wanted to bring her to you, my listener. When I contacted her, she was surprised and a bit shocked that I would reach out to her. But when you hear her story, I'm sure you will be grateful that she shared HER career and HER story!
David Bereit has a lot on his plate, but he doesn't hesitate to join me on Choose Life Radio! Why? Because his passion is to help women and men choose LIFE. Hear his articulate discussion about the value of every unborn child.
Susan Geouge is a walking testament to what God has done in her life! Everyone she passes by, she says aloud, "God bless you!" And with those words shared with me in a grocery parkinglot, I had to walk back to hear her story. And now, you can hear it, as well!
Dr. Donald Sweeting
Being a California girl growing up, I loved swimming in the ocean. Our guest, Lindsay Bruns, also enjoys that...accept...her story might surprise you!
Dr. Haywood and Daphne Robinson
What a joy to talk with Dr. Haywood Robinson, once again, and meet his second wife (after his first passed away). Welcome Daphne Robinson to Choose Life Radio!
Sue Justice - Part 2
Talking, again, with Sue Justice about her work with The Justice Foundation. This interview is a great opportunity to share with those who have experienced a forced abortion. Even years later, there is a safe place to find Justice!
It was a priviledge to talk with Sue Justice as she unwraps her passion to help women and men become protectors of LIFE including the unborn...the most vulnerable, for sure.
It’s beautiful when pastors insert themselves in pregnancy center ministries. Today John shares with us how his commitment to the local church and pregnancy ministries in this country led him to found and lead PassionLife Ministries by training Christian leaders in countries suffering the highest rates of abortion.
While there are numerous issues and concerns related to how each of us might feel about the Ukrainian war, now well into its’ second year, all of us—as believers—recognize the importance of helping those who have been tragically displaced from their country. Our guest today shares her story of working with Ukrainian refugees.
Sometimes—albeit rarely—Choose Life Radio gets a surprise guest. After the incident at Hunter College made news across the country, we contacted Students for Life of America staff to get their understanding on the scattering of a pro-life display by a Hunter College faculty member. We were privileged to interview with Savannah Craven, NE Field Operations Coordinator.
Today’s interview with Mike Gilland gives me hope that I might someday be as good as Mike when it comes to interviewing guests on the radio. From pastor to local radio personality, his greatest gift is his ability to communicate his relationship with God.
We are hearing a lot about Ukraine right now, however, we aren't hearing from the heart of the Church in Ukraine. Our guest today will share from his heart experiences of those who have been able to flee...and those who remain in Ukraine, This wonderful interview is a call to all Christians to pray, pray, PRAY!
Dr. Ben Carson
Dr. Ben Carson is slow to anger and amazingly quiet, even when being interviewed. But, in the midst of his interview, he giggled about something and that's when we got to see the precious personality of Dr. Ben Carson. His story begins with a broken family...a mother trying to balance two jobs every day while having to leave two boys alone. Ben Carson is who he is today because of his amazing mother who made sure he was educated, polite and staying away from the gangs!
Tiffany Matthews addresses very personal, very touching issues about miscarriage, and she uncovers the pain and loss many women have experienced without much support. There is no celebration with miscarriage. There is no baby shower, and there is no baby. Tiffany touches the hearts of many women who have experienced this loss.
Yes, John Stonestreet is a close friend of Choose Life Radio. And his interview today is about our culture. He weighs in on the topic of schools influencing our youth and the presure to accept gender changes in young lives. Listen in, and you will be better able to influence your school board.
Connie Hagen shares in her book, Drinking the Cup, the story of being an ordained pastor and a professional counselor--helping women recover from trauma.

Carol Everett was and IS a very successful and wealthy woman. Her investments were in focus and she owned 5 abotion clinics. But her story takes a major turn. This interview is a must. Isn't it amazing what God can do?
Jor-El Godsey is a man who has a tremendous vision for pregnancy centers across America and internationally. His message for Choose Life Radio is one of encouragement as we represent the stories of so many pregnancy help centers. Listen in and then consider YOUR role in opening a Pregnancy Center in your town. You will never regret it!
Dawn Bethel is the Director of Client Service at a significant pregnancy help organization in the mid-west. But, there's a deeper reason Dawn is sharing her story today, listener, and it’s a very personal reason. Dawn allows me and you, our listener, to understand the very high cost of abortion.
Today we share a dream with our guest, Missy Martinez-Stone. Her quest? To put an end to abortion and the destruction of innocent lives using a powerful organization, Reprotection. Missy's goal when she launched Reprotection was--and still is--to investigate and shutter abortion facilities that violate state health and medical codes.

Chief Jeffrey Yarbrough
Chief Jeffrey Yarbrough is one of those guests who become your best friend. Because when you find yourself in a threatening situation, you and I both would cry out for help from someone close who could protect us!
Olivia Frey survived a deadly encounter with alcohol. Many young people in our very own communities struggle with these issues. This surely is an interview you should share, if you know a family dealing with alcohol or anorexia. Both of these diseases can, and have, ended the lives of many struggling in their minds around body image.
Serving for a number of years for a local pregnancy center, Lonette Baity knew that she wanted to serve God with her talents. And BOY has she been consistently serving Him. Listen in as she shares her powerful story.

Renod Bejjani - Author
After meeting Karen Bejjani, I have been blessed to interview her kind husband, Renod. He is the author of Muslims, 5 Biblical Essentials Every Christian Must Know and Do, and The Way to Paradise, a ground-breaking, gospel-centered Bible study for Muslims, tailored for their worldview. If you want to share Jesus Christ with your Muslim neighbors, listen in to the perfect way to share Christ with them authentically.
Karen founded iHOPE Ministries with her husband, Renod, to awaken the Church and share their faith and desire to share Jesus Christ with Muslims and other non-Believers. iHOPE has emboldened tens of thousands of Christians worldwide to share the hope of Jesus across cultural and religious divides. Karen grew up in America’s heartland unaware of people of other faiths. She pursued the American Dream and built a successful career as a corporate executive. But God had other plans. Karen is using her corporate skills to embolden everyday Christian women to share their faith across religious boundaries. She is the host of the “Blue Cord” podcast, a catalyst for Christian women who know they “should be” sharing their faith.
This lady hits the nail on the head! Churches need to hear and SEE the issue of abortion. And then we, the body of Christ, must do everything in our power to save lives.
We met under unique circumstances. It was right after she had knee replacements, so she was stuck in bed, listening to Choose Life Radio. Our conversation about LIFE as treated in liberal states like Oregon, became one of my favorites. Listen in, won't you?
Lauren Muzyka, ESQ - Sidewalk Advocates
Lauren Mazyka, ESQ is back with us today. She is the leadership of Sidewalk Advocates for Life. We have brought her back to help us understand the threats against those who are attempting to be sidewalk counselors. It has been a pleasure to have her with us in previous disussions on Choose Life Radio, and today we will address perhaps the biggest threat to sidewalk advocacy.
Lauren has a law degree, but she found her heart spoke a different language. She is the CEO/President of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, and she is more than able to go head-to-head with abortionists. Lauren is so capable of training and supporting sidewalk advocates who are able to share the truth about life to women heading into an abortion mill where her child will be destroyed in the womb. Such an important interview, so listen up and then think...could I do that? The answer is YES!
Fran and Denny Drennan
We recently spoke with Fran Drennan, but I wanted to bring her back and asked her husband, Denny, to join us. When we say "there's more to this story." we mean there's Denny! Nothing but the bottom line, the whole story of LIFE that God gives us, and the importance on not letting that LIFE go down the drain with alcohol.
Some women are simply beautiful within, others are also gorgeous on the outside, as well! But beauty doesn't equal happiness, and Fran shares her story of alcohol, divorce and loss. Redemption is the key to this awesome interview.
If you know someone who is feeling sorry for themselves, share this amazing interview with Bradley Walker. What a story of allowing God to use us, no matter how much we feel we don't have a lot to offer. Once you hear Bradley Walker sing (and create songs) and then connect the dots with his incapacities, well...his interview shares a lot...but his singing is just awesome!
David Zanotti left his family's manufacturing company in 1985 to join The Roundtable and he currently serves as President/CEO of The American Policy Roundtable and The Public Square® Media Network. He's a man with a heart for LIFE, and his gift is helping voters understand the capability vs the liability of people on the ballot! He also serves as President of Roundtable Freedom Forum, a legislative organization. Zanotti isn't concerned which party you belong to...he cares about you knowing the real person hoping to be elected! Believe you me...Dave Zanotti can be trusted!
President and CEO Lauren Muzyka has to run a tight ship...because she's going head-to-head with the abortion industry. If it takes walking the sidewalks to keep eyes open, Lauren is willing and able. Her job is to protect the unborn, and her best work is done in front of abortion mills. She has over 20 years of sidewalk-outreach experience, including participating in the very first 40 Days for Life campaign and later serving as 40 Days for Life’s campaign strategist, advising their 300+ campaigns in North America. Inspired by the transformative power of prayer and peaceful outreach on the sidewalk, Lauren founded Sidewalk Advocates for Life in 2014.
