He’s also an “Aspie” – diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as an adult. And he’s happy about it. Brant is also the spokesperson for CURE International, a network of hospitals serving the poor around the world. Brant is also the author of three best-selling books: “Unoffendable”, “Blessed are the Misfits”, and “The Truth About Us. Making his home here on the Treasure Coast, Brant’s show is now syndicated by Christian FM to more than 200 stations nationwide.

Andy Youso
 

Hey, I’m Andy! I’m a Father of two wild boys and one princess. I have a wife who is the living example of grace. When I was a kid, I found Jesus after watching an episode of MacGyver (a show which I still love to watch to this day!) When you listen to my show, I hope that you are encouraged, entertained, and have a moment of two where you are reminded of how much God love you, because when you feel God’s love, that changes everything!

Lisa Barry
 

Hi, I’m Lisa!  It is so fun being able to connect with you on Christian FM!  Every day I feel like you and I are just having coffee, talking about all the good, bad and crazy stuff we have to go through.  In case you’re curious, I’m married to Ken, who is hilarious and he makes me laugh every day.  We have three grown daughters, Emily, Molly and Marissa. I love eating healthy and working out, although I also love eating cheese and sitting on the couch watching HGTV, so there’s that constant tension.  I also love wrestling with faith issues and shopping for cute clothes; which I realize doesn’t sound like they go together but…we’re all complicated!
