Glenn shares amazing stories of families you'll be helping on Friday's Day of Service

Tens of thousands of volunteers will come together this Friday in Dallas for Restoring Love's day of service. As this day approaches, Glenn wanted to share some of the amazing stories of faith, hope and charity he has heard the last few months.

"With all of the bad news that is happening in the world, let me give you a couple of stories," he told his radio audience.

Billy Harris and his wife live in the Fort Worth/Dallas area in a home that was built during the Depression era, Glenn explained. Bill has to use a cane in order to walk and has had health problems for several years. His wife has some several health concerns herself - cancer, for one, which recently took her foot. As a result she is going to be stuck in a wheelchair for quite some time. She's currently recovering from the amputation in the hospital.

A few months ago someone reached out to Glenn and told him about the Harris' situation. Their home is falling into disrepair and in desperate need of a paint job. This is one of the homes where volunteers will be on Friday.

Glenn explained the there are contractors volunteering their time from all across the country to join the day of service this week. When they went to the Harris' home last weekend and realized just how bad of shape it was in.

"When she comes home, there's no way that she could even get into the house because she's in a wheelchair. She's having her foot removed. The contractors decided she couldn't come home to a house that's in this condition" Glenn explained.

The home currently has five steps at the entrance that the husband, who is sick himself, would have to drag her up. The contractors are going to build them a ramp. They're repairing and replacing all of the windows.

The Harris' house is just one example of the service projects taking place on Friday. Today, while contractors were power washing one of the homes so it will be ready to get painted on Friday there was a poor couple who lived in one of the homes. They told the contractors they had been praying all week for the people coming to work on the day of service.

The couple wanted to give back somehow and knew they needed to tithe, but they don't have any money. All they had in their pantry was rice and beans. They took 10% of their rice and beans and they brought it down to a homeless shelter and donated it to those who are less fortunate than they are.

"Blessings are coming.  Miracles are going to happen.  And you will see and feel things.  If you were here for Washington when we went and did Restoring Honor, if you were with us, one of the lucky few to be able to come with us in Jerusalem, I have to tell ya I think that's going to be child's play."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
