Sunday night in Las Vegas shook the town and, tragically, saw the loss of life to over 50 and caused injuries to over 400 participants at the Route91 Christian Music Festival.

Jason took some time Monday evening to reflect on his experience as the realization dawned on him, and the other meeting attendees, that someone was shooting at people on the ground. He also talks to his friend, Larry, who stayed at the meeting a little longer and ended up being locked into the hotel and having to spend the night in the meeting room.

Born into a godly and loving home, Dr. Pete grew up in church and gave his life to Christ at a young age. But while he loved the Lord and deeply desired to serve Him, throughout his formative years he realized that something important was missing from his relationship with Christ. “I did all the things that Christians do to cultivate intimacy with God,” he recalls. “I prayed and read my Bible regularly, I was involved in my church, and to the best of my ability I shared my faith with others. But there was still a void in my closeness to God that I couldn’t quite put my finger on.”

After graduating from Bethel University in Minnesota, where he met and married his wife Stephanie, Dr. Pete continued on to Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minneapolis, graduating in 2001 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Little did he know that God was also subtly preparing him to serve Him in a way that he would have never thought possible.

Dr. Pete Sulack is the founder and majority owner of one of the largest clinics in North America.  His office has seen more than 1,000,000 patient visits over the last 13 years, validating his unique approach to health and wellness.

Dr. Pete actively treats patients traveling from around the world seeking his services.  His studies on the effects of stress, coupled with testimonials from patients and attention in medical communities have garnered him the title of “America’s Leading Stress Expert.”

Guy Hatcher is Managing Partner at The Company Coach and columnist for the Christian Post. He's the author of, "Your Future Reflection: How to Leave a Legacy Beyond Money."

 

Matthew 6:25 says, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” Using this excerpt, Hatcher explains how people can cope with financial anxiety. 

 

God’s word states, “Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.” –Ecclesiastes 7:12 NIV. Hatcher discusses how people can use this saying to better manage their investments with wisdom.

 

Proverbs 13:22 (NIV) says, “A good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, but a sinner's wealth is stored up for the righteous.” Hatcher thinks it is so important for people to leave legacies. He talks about how people can better understand the power of “The Blessing,” and how they can receive and give it.

Vassula Ryden is the Founder of True Life in God and author of, "Heaven is Real, But So is Hell: An Eyewitness Account of What is to Come." She has experienced "interiorvisions" of heaven and the future. She has spoken to supernatural forces and explains what's in store for us. She also explains what God, Heaven, and Hell are like. 

Some gloomers think these may be the last days. Vassula tells us what we can expect... and how we can prepare for the future.

Ryden has received messages about the future, "The Day of the Lord," and has even had premonitions about events such as September 11, 2001; the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004; and the fall of Communism in the former Soviet Union. Still it is not a message of doom, which Ryden believes she is to share, but one of redemption, reconciliation and love. Ryden's specific call from Christ is to help unite the divided branches of the Christian church according to His guidance.

Ryden was born in 1942 to Greek parents and grew up in Egypt until her teen years, when her family moved to Switzerland due to war and unrest. She now resides in Greece with her husband, but has lived throughout the world due to her husband's consulting work with the government, including countries in Africa and in Southeast Asia. Ryden has two sons.
