Healing Racial Hatred
I’m a 44-year-old African American man and I’ve experienced so much hatred solely based on the color of my skin. To be honest, it’s broken me. Over the years, I began to wonder if God cared, or if He was even real. But one day while I was flipping through the channels, I found “Marcus & Joni.” It was then that I heard Joni say something that has forever changed my life. For the first time ever, a white woman looked at me and said that in Christ, she was my sister. Joni went on to say that God loved me and wanted to heal the pain of my past. I remember thinking, “how can this be?” But somewhere deep inside, I knew it was true. All the hurt, frustration, and anger I felt began to melt away in that moment and I experienced peace. Today, I’m different. I’m new. I can say without hesitation that God used Daystar and Joni to do a work in me that I could’ve never done on my own. Thank you, sister.

NOTE FROM JONI LAMB
I’ve always counted it such a privilege to be able to share people’s stories or the insight they’ve learned with our international audiences. I think that’s what I love most about “Joni Table Talk.” It’s just a fun, powerful time where I get together with my friends to talk about things that matter. I receive countless emails telling me how this topic or that topic touched someone’s life, and that’s what makes the time so special.
At the heart of the program is a passion to shine the light of Jesus into people’s lives and bring hope! We start every show with prayer before we ever roll cameras because we want the Holy Spirit to direct our discussion. I can’t even tell you how many times a viewer has contacted us to say that a guest on the show was speaking directly to them. It just goes to show you how personally involved God wants to be in our lives. He knows right where you are and exactly how to reach you. It’s the overwhelming truth of who God is and how He loves. I never get tired of sharing that with the world through “Joni Table Talk.”

Each year, Christ For The Nations honors its late co-founder Freda Lindsay by presenting an award to a woman who exemplifies what it means to be a person of great faith and character. In 2016, that award went to Daystar’s own Joni Lamb! As co-founder of Daystar, Joni’s passion to see lives transformed is making a global impact. We are so proud of how she loves without limits and models what it means to live a life of total surrender to Jesus.
In 2016, Pastor Nicole Crank of Faith Church welcomed Joni to speak at her annual “I Am Woman Conference” in West Palm Beach. Always full of imagination and excitement, this event provided the perfect opportunity for Joni to share her heart for women. She inspired and encouraged them to embrace God’s plan for their lives and allow Him create a clean heart that would open doors to greater faith for the journey ahead.
NOTE FROM THE PRODUCER
When you’ve faced unspeakable heartache it can be hard to find hope for the future. I’ve been through so many dark seasons in my life that I’d almost lost faith in God and His love for me. Then, I met Joni. In what seemed like a random coincidence at the time, I found myself watching a “Joni Table Talk” featuring a story that was much like my own. The difference was that this person had surrendered their pain to Jesus and He had healed them. So, day-after-day, I continued to watch the program and began to see a similar thread through every journey. Sure, they all began with baggage. But by the end they had laid it down in exchange for something–or more accurately–Someone greater. This was no coincidence. I have been impacted by this program more than I can describe. It’s truly become the highlight of my day as I look forward to hearing what God has done in the lives of His children. It’s been the best medicine, curing the hurt I’ve held for so long. The stories shared by these men and women have made me fall deeper in love with Jesus and I, too, have traded my pain for something lighter, easier to travel with as I make my way through life. Hope is no longer elusive, and the future doesn’t sound so bad either. Thank you, Joni, for reminding me that God does care, and He knows exactly how to heal what hurts.

NOTE FROM MARCUS LAMB
I’ve known since I was 15 years old that the Lord would use me to reach the world with the Gospel. When I think about the moment I received that call on my life, I can still remember the joy in hearing God’s voice and wholeheartedly saying yes. Today, that passion to pursue my purpose is as strong as ever. Each time I step up to preach for my program, “Marcus Lamb: Empowered By The Spirit,” I’m reminded of that young man again and I’m filled with excitement about how God will move in the next few moments. Making the decision to go wherever the Lord leads now takes me all over the world to declare His transforming power. What I’ve learned along the way is that He will stop at nothing to reach us all with His love. I’m overwhelmed by the privilege to share that with audiences everywhere, and millions more through Daystar. The Creator of Heaven and earth wants a personal relationship with each of us, and I never get tired of reflecting on that truth. Through every season, it is what sustains me, drives me, and reminds me of why I’m here. And all at once, I’m 15 again, and I hear myself quietly whisper, “Yes, Lord.”

Right On Time
I had been going through some difficult things when I walked in to Lakewood that night to hear Marcus Lamb preach. Weighed down by the issues I was facing, I needed a clear word from the Lord that He was still at work in my life. And through Marcus, He gave it to me. The message he shared was exactly what I needed to hear. I may have come in burdened and depressed, but I left filled with joy and hope. My circumstances may not have changed in those moments, but the way that I saw them was completely different. Thank you, Marcus! The Lord spoke through you in a powerful way that night, and I’m better for it today. God bless you and all that He’s using you to accomplish through Daystar.

A Miracle Made Possible
It’s hard to watch someone you love suffer. My wife’s failing kidney was a daily reality we faced together for years, both knowing it would require a miracle to save her life since the doctors refused to put her on the transplant list. Praise God! We got one. I was watching “Heart for the World” on Daystar a few months ago, and the speaker asked if I wanted to see a dramatic turnaround in my life. Of course, my answer was “Yes!” He then invited people to give and support the work of reaching the world with the Gospel. I’ve always believed in the power of Christian TV, so this resonated deeply in my spirit. With my heart full, and my hand shaking, I picked up the phone and pledged. Two months later, we received a call that my wife was put on the transplant list! Another week went by, and the new kidney we’d been believing for was ready! Today, she is healthy and whole. Thank you, Daystar, for providing an opportunity to give in a way that’s transformed our lives forever.

BEHIND THE SCENES
Creating Connections That Last
I’ve never been drawn to Christian television. I realize that might seem strange since I invited Jesus into my heart years ago, but I just haven’t felt a connection with anything I’ve seen until recently. I was searching through the channels when something caught my attention on Daystar. It was a young couple hosting a program called “The Green Room.” They laughed, played games, and talked with guests in a way that really spoke to my heart. It was normal, relatable, and I immediately liked it. It’s now been months since I watched my first episode, and I look forward to it every week. Thank you, Jonathan and Suzy, for representing Jesus so well. I’m extremely grateful to you and Daystar for creating a program like this for people like me.

NOTE FROM GUY PENROD
Wow!!! It’s hard to believe that this is my 5th year of hosting “Gospel Music Showcase” for the Daystar TV Network. It really is true to say that “time flies when you’re having fun.” Thanks to the show’s producer, Troy Hill, and to the team that works so hard to put this program together. And, of course, I want to thank Marcus and Joni for their dedication to broadcasting all of the creative content that lifts up Jesus in this world.
That said, I really believe we have a great opportunity at this particular time in history to “sing in and sing down” the power and blessings of God into this great country and around the world. I believe God is calling His people to really step up and believe Him for more in 2017. That’s because He wants to pour out His blessing and favor on His people so that they can meet the needs of those all around them. The Church is going to retake its place as the house of prayer, bread, provision, and encouragement to the hurting and needy. And as happened so often in the Old Testament, He’s sending the singers and musicians out to sound the alarm. So, my prayer for you this year is that God would use this show to prompt you to action for Him. I pray He fills you with fresh vision, dreams, purpose, and boldness that would allow you to share Jesus with the world around you. Blessings, and thanks for watching!

Peace for the Pain
After 56 years of marriage, including four years of caring for my darling wife during her battle with Alzheimer’s disease, she suffered a massive stroke and went to be with the Lord. I can’t put into words the grief I felt, or the loneliness that came from knowing that I’ll never see her face again this side of eternity. It was gut-wrenching. But as I sat on my bed this morning, I saw Guy Penrod on “Gospel Music Showcase” hosting The Talleys. They sang their song, “Hidden Heroes,” and it was such a great comfort to me. The pain of this loss may have consumed my heart, but in a matter of moments, the Holy Spirit used this program and that song to bring healing when I needed it most. I still miss my wife. I can’t imagine that will ever change. But I now have a different perspective on her passing, and look forward to the day when we will meet again in Heaven. Thank you, Daystar, for being there to bring peace to my pain.
