Glenn makes $55,000 donation to woman's charity on radio

 

Something incredible happened on radio today - a Colorado shelter for abused women that had recently lost it's federal funding (because they refused to make their Bible study 'optional') had their prayers answered. The owners took a leap of faith and when faced with an ultimatum - drop the mandatory Bible study or lose funding - they chose faith over cash. They had no idea where they'd get the money, but trusted God would provide. That's exactly what happened on radio today.

Glenn read s story from The Blaze which reported:

Mandatory Bible studies have led to the loss of federal funds for two Colorado women’s shelters. The Gospel Shelter for Women centers, which are non-profit organizations, offer assistance to individuals who are mentally ill. Additionally, they provide transitional housing for the homeless and those struggling with addiction.

...

Apparently, the women who go through these facilities are required to participate in Bible studies as a portion of their treatment. In the past, these studies were believed to be optional, so officials allowed monies to be allocated in support of the shelters. But the revelation that participants are forced to take part in religious activities has led to a major funding loss.

Faced with a tough decision, leaders of the organization decided to keep prayer and faith in the program. Of course, the other option would be to continue accepting federal dollars, while taking faith out of the equation.

Glenn interviewed Marilyn Vyzourek, the founder and executive director of Liza’s Place, on radio this morning, and during the interview he decided he would step in and donate the lost funds to the group.

After explaining what the organization did, Glenn asked Marilyn how much the organization needed.

"I'm probably about $20,000 in the red.  We laid off one staff member, we're getting ready to lay off another one, and we just need to generate the funds in a different area.  We're still open.  We're still taking people for Hope Home and Liza's Place.  We've consolidated the two programs in one building and we're just looking for other areas of funding so that we can keep it open," she said.

"$55,000 is what we've lost," she explained.

"When you first heard that you were going to lose it, you had the faith that the Lord would replace it some way or another?" Glenn asked.

"Yes," she said.

"Okay.  Good.  We're going to send you a check for $55,000.  My wife and I would like to make sure that you don't lay any more people off and you keep those doors open," Glenn said.

"Oh, thank you so much.  Praise God.  Wow," Marilyn exclaimed.

Glenn then had one of his producers speak with Marilyn offline about getting her group the money they needed.

"Wow.  So what government program just mandated that you did that?  That was weird," Stu joked.

"I have done the things that have put me in a situation where I can make money.  And then my wife and I decide what to do with that money," Glenn explained. "And if the government doesn't think that a faith‑based charity should get any money, well, then it is up to me, an individual who believes in small government, to make up the difference."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
