Why should people be afraid to talk about God? Join Mike and Heather as they invite local pastors and other special guests in to talk about God, the Bible, the Christian life, and other topics that affect all of us. If you're looking for highfalutin jibber-jabber, don't bother subscribing. The conversations are candid, lively, and sometimes silly, but always grounded in the Truth. Mike and Heather in the Morning is a ministry of Key Radio located in Provo, Utah.

Perhaps the greatest source of relational conflict is unmet expectations. And when God lets us down, we start doubting his love, his justice, and even his existence! We don’t get to dictate the way life works, and sometimes God will be gracious enough to dispel any illusion that we are in control.Everyone wants justice – the small child wants the s…
 
We’ve spent a week and a half talking about holiness, and hopefully destroyed the self-righteous, starched collar, no fun image that was once burned in your mind. Today we wrap it up by reminding ourselves why holiness matters, and why you can’t generate holiness on your own. Added bonus: What to do when you recognize you’ve been living an unholy l…
 
As promised, we’re getting pretty real-zies here. We’ve aimed to dispel any myth that holiness is akin to legalistic religiosity. Instead, it’s a enormous gift that every Christian is called to. In fact, holy living should draw others TO Christ, not repel! How do you live it – this holy life? Ah, dear friend, have some patience!…
 
All Christians should understand that the world holds a very different view on virtually everything compared to that of a believer in Jesus. We’ve already determined that holiness is something that is to be strived for. Now, let’s put some wheels on this. Today we answer the question: What does it mean to have a spirit of holy love and holy joy?…
 
Thanks to everyone who has been joining us over at twitch.tv/onegrahamarmy for the live streams. This is the audio from the last stream in which we experience the passive aggressive training techniques for Hardee’s employees and I drink beer and eat fried chicken. Enjoy! Dial 847-665-9238 and tell me something good Shop shirtcaviar.com and use prom…
 
It is a most terrifying thing to encounter the Holy God. Ask Isaiah! In Chapter 6 the prophet finds himself in the throne room of God and he is undone! Christians today, smile slightly at this and go about regarding God casually. But even in this age of grace, God’s holiness should especially throw us into fits of awe.…
 
We’ve got it all wrong. Somewhere along the line, holiness went from being desirable, to being an oppressive social construct. But if God is good, and God is holy, then holiness can’t be bad, but actually something we should all aspire to. So what happened? Blurring the lines of understanding is as old as the first sin recorded. The phrase, “you ha…
 
The loving channels are you and me. God's resources are limitless, Jesus even said that we will always have the needy with us, so we won't run out of need. Ministry goes off the track because of us, which is especially troubling since we are just the distributors and not the manufacturers. We are the weak link where ministry falls apart.…
 
Ministry. What is ministry? Is this the work that ministers do? We talk about it, and we should all be involved with it, but this peculiar word deserves a little developing, so we can be confident that we are truly doing it and doing it right. Warren Wiersbe, in his book On Being a Servant of God sheds some light on this with a practical definition…
 
Imagine a room full of perfectly tuned violins, skillfully manipulated by expert hands, spilling out a rapture of melodious precision, delighting the minds of the most ardent critics. Then, at the climax of the movement, young freckle-faced Kyle J. Wendelson, blasts out the most scandalous of noises from his newly acquired thrift store Tuba. Hyster…
 
This is the audio from a recent live stream I did at twitch.tv/onegrahamarmy where we watched a young man have a psychotic break during which he learns to make Wendy’s burgers with the help of a rapping grill master. Subscribe to the twitch stream and never miss a stream. The episode is very video heavy so you may want to check it out on the OGA Yo…
 
Within the last few generations, the concept of wickedness has become celebrated. Villains in movies are now relatable and pitiable. The word wicked is now interchangeable with “cool.” Wicked behavior is tolerated if it’s for the “greater good.” In our live-and-let-live world, evil pursuits are tolerated and celebrated as long as it’s not happening…
 
It's good to listen to Bible teaching, whether from Key Radio (shameless plug here!) or from your local pastor. We are also called to read the Bible for ourselves. Some of us feel intimidated, after all, the Bible is a very big book! But if Mike, Heather and Grant can do it, you can too. Starting with some mad observation skills, we dig into a rela…

Maybe you’ve seen it – hype teams, red carpet entrances, autograph sessions, designer clothes, and paparazzi. The world loves a star, and so does the church. There is a growing trend of celebrity believers, celebrity worship leaders and celebrity pastors. Does this trend reveal success in reaching the world? Or is cool, accessible, interesting Chri…
 
In the Western world, the younger generation has fled the religious scene in droves, and for decades, Christian churches have gone to great lengths to lure them back. They’ve tried everything from playing the top Christian hits, installing coffee bars, hiring skinny-jean-clad youth pastors, throwing pizza parties, and giving them “youth rooms,” “yo…
 
“I’ve searched the world over and found that religion is not for me.” This is the sentiment of many enlightened people who have returned from their quest for purpose. Specifically, when looking into Christianity, they find it dull. Close-minded. Unscientific. Oppressive. Stuffed suits in soup-stained ties, preaching hellfire and brimstone and an an…
 
“It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights!” If the Muppet Show theme song is stuck in your head now, you’re welcome! Christian churches are aware for the need to be welcoming, and work hard to do so by having greeters at the door, comfortable chairs, and cozy worship centers. The idea seems sound – if people enjoy their time at ch…
 
Are we enjoying the world of biblical paradoxes? Throughout this series we are discovering that context is king when we trip over seeming contradictions. Now it’s just getting fun. Today we discover the give-and-takes of generosity and stewardship – or we might learn that these two verses mean something entirely different!…
 
Camdon Hill is the co-host of the Babblin’ & Dabblin’ podcast, available where you get ’em. This is the most inspirational interview in the podcast’s history. Ok, it’s mostly about being sad while trying to make people laugh and hot poops but it’s very funny and I dig a terrible segment out of the crates. Check out Babblin’ & Dabblin’ where you get…
 
“Peace on Earth, good will to man.” “I’ve got peace like a river.” “Let the peace of God reign.” You could name a hundred worship songs about the peace of Christ. So you get this image in your mind of a soft, guru-like Jesus running around in sandals speaking words of enlightenment. Then you trip on Matthew 10 where Jesus jarringly states, “I did n…
