Soaring Wings plans new radio program

Soaring Wings Christian Home and Ranch (SWR) will soon fill a prime-time radio spot during the evening drive, tackling difficult topics and offering biblical advice for raising families.

“This is for all families – biological, adoptive, foster, single parent homes,” said founder and executive director Andrew Watson. “There are unique challenges each of these deals with daily.

“We want to offer a chance for families to feel connected to others who might be experiencing similar things. They should know that they are not alone in the troubles that arise in family life.”

“Foundations: Raising Godly Families from the Ground Up” will air at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday beginning Tuesday, Feb. 2, on Faith Talk 99.5 KDIS-FM.

Co-hosted by Watson and Colby Crow, pastor of students and families at Conway’s First Baptist Church, the program will focus on solutions to obstacles facing modern families who strive to live according to biblical principles.

Crow said he hopes to give families practical ways to talk about their faith every day.

“We have the desire to equip families to be the primary spiritual influence in the lives of their children,” he said.

Talks of creating the show began in October when Watson approached the operations manager of Faith Talk 99.5 with the goal of increasing awareness of SWR, a faith-based nonprofit organization offering long-term foster care in a stable, loving, Christ-centered family environment.

Faith Talk Operations Manager Steve Marston said there has long been a need for an “anchor” program that serves Central Arkansas amidst the national ministries broadcast through the station.

“’Foundations’ is the perfect program to speak to the needs of families here in Central Arkansas. It’s really an answer to prayer.” Marston said. “I’m excited that this is the program that will air during our prime-time listening hour.”

Watson said the program is an effort to provide biblical guidance for Arkansas families while furthering the mission of SWR. “Foundations” will feature a variety of topics and discussions with community leaders as well as experts in the fields of family services and biblical teaching.
