Best known for her hard-hitting prophetic books and Charisma magazine columns, Jennifer LeClaire is joining Pastor Greg Young every Friday morning at 10 a.m. CST for the Dose of the Ghost segment on Chosen Generation Radio.
When Pastor Greg asked me to join him for his Dose of the Ghost segment on Fridays, I knew it was an opportunity to speak prophetically to the nation, says LeClaire, news editor at Charisma magazine and author of several books, including The Spiritual Warriors Guide to Defeating Jezebel. On Dose of the Ghost, the Holy Spirit never fails to expose issues affecting Christians and offer solutions to the problems we face in our individual lives and as a nation. We encourage our listeners to have faithbut take actionfor Gods glory.
Together, LeClaire and Young confront cultural challenges impacting the church and society at large, from church scandals to pro-life battles to the erosion of First Amendment rights and beyond. Every episode offers prophetic insight into the issues at hand, equips listeners to respond, and offers hope in Christ.
At Chosen Generation Radio, no topic is off limits and everything is filtered through biblical glasses. There are other conservative talk programs, but Chosen Generation focuses on bringing God back into the mix, says Young, pastor of Fulfilling Christs Calling in Bandera, Texas and host of Chosen Generation Radio.
These are crazy times, the only way I know to make any sense of them is to see them from Gods perspective. He gives me hope that the battle is worth the fight. Freedom of speech and freedom of religion are God-given rights. Everyday on Chosen Generation we share that hope and education with our listeners through great guests like Jennifer.”

Through my work at Charisma magazine, I come across shocking news every day.

On Chosen Generation, we talk about the trend lines that you need to discern. Were not just talking heads pontificating about problems. We offer prayer strategies and encouragement because, after all, we win!

NFL Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is partnering with Compassion International, the world’s leading child sponsorship organization, to help rescue children living in extreme poverty around the world. Hasselbeck, who will be celebrating his birthday on September 25, is asking others to give the gift of sponsorship to poverty-stricken children who also celebrate their birthday in the month of September.
“A child living in extreme poverty rarely has a reason to celebrate, says Hasselbeck. For my birthday, September 25th, I want to see children born in the month of September be celebrated.
“I love this idea because it shows who Matt really is, says Mark Hanlon, senior vice president of Compassion’s USA group. “We all know him as the football star. But this partnership shows his heart for the little ones the children in poverty. I hope this is his biggest birthday celebration ever!
Those who would like to participate in the campaign by sponsoring a child through Compassion International can do so by going to compassion.com/matt. There, they will be able to choose a child whose birthday is also in September.
Sponsoring a child is a $ 38/month commitment that helps provide Compassions world-renowned holistic child development program that includes Christian training, educational opportunities, treatment and training to maintain health, development of self-confidence and social skills as well as key life skills and vocational training. Independent research shows that children who participate in Compassions program stay in school longer, have a better chance of attaining white collar employment as adults and are more likely to be community leaders than their peers who do not participate in the program.
Becoming a sponsor through Compassion is one of the most impactful things you can do to help a child in need,” says Hasselbeck, “please join me and help change a child’s life forever.”

Author Bob Ross Thomas tells a story of revival, healing and salvation in his uplifting new novel, “The Two-Minute Warning: It’s Almost Midnight! 11:58 p.m.” (published by WestBow Press).
“The Two-Minute Warning” follows the journey of John Starr, an evangelist in the end times who preaches warnings of Gods judgment and Jesus imminent return. He sees revival happen everywhere he goes as people get saved, healed and delivered and the enemy gets defeated.
Thomas writes that “The Two-Minute Warning” “brings a positive approach to endtimes doom and gloom in the sense that it has a happy ending instead of a sad ending. It is full of revival and salvation and healing and people being ministered to and receiving miracles,” he explains.
Praise for “The Two-Minute Warning”:
“I find Bob Ross Thomass book, The Two-Minute Warning, a timely warning to the Church in America to truly walk in repentance and humility. From his evangelistic travels to the prophetic dreams given to him by God, I truly believe he is a watchman and must blow the trumpet of warning.”
