Sandra joined Robbo and Becci and shared her story of how she stumbled across Vision, and now it’s become a ‘Priceless Gem’ in her life.

Sandra says Vision helps her connect with God every day, and she always finds confirmation of what God is saying to her when she listens.

“It was probably about 18 months ago that I started listening,” Sandra says. “Vision was still on the AM station and I followed you over when you made the switch.  I was sent your devotion book, which I now read every day. My husband reads it now too!”

The way that Sandra came across Vision was quite unique. “Well I was stumbling around changing stations and I couldn’t find anything. Then I came across Vision and I was stunned at what I was hearing. I had never heard anything like it before on radio.

Once I found it, I had it on every night. I would get into bed with my AirPods. We’re living through really dark chaotic times, and I just found it enlightening truthful. We all have our own personal things in life. Life’s always got its challenges and that’s what it’s all about.”

Sandra continues that she found the teachings, the scripture and the songs would always somehow confirm what has happening in her own life. “I was wrestling with things that I wasn’t finding answers to, and then I would hear a song and know it was for me.”

“I went to a Catholic school and one of the nuns used to say, I can do all things in Christ who strengthens me, without Him I can do nothing. And I heard that one night on Vision radio and I thought, this is for me,” says Sandra. “I always seem to have the little confirmations and I’ve just had great admiration for you guys. You go 24/7 throughout this country.”

“We are that lucky country to date. Our faith is our endurance. How do we get by without it? It’s a spiritual belief. And I think we all deep within our own hearts, we don’t stick to old dogmas. We find our own way, with what’s true to us within.”

Sandra says that God’s been very good to her.  “I’ve had wonderful people that have given me sacred values. I’ve certainly had my challenges. I’ve probably faced death three times, but have come through it. My faith is unshakeable, but sometimes life takes over.

Sometimes I find when I’m not having my quiet times I’m wondering why I’m coming apart. But Vision is with me and my little radio in my AirPods every night, and in my quiet time during the day. Thank you, because we want this to go to others out there. You’re spreading this all over the place and I am so grateful that you are part of that.”

The Vision family stretches far and wide and when a family member is in need, we all unite in prayer together.
