‘Changing My Life for the Better’: Glenn Reads a Touching Letter from a Listener

On today’s show, Glenn read an emotional letter from a listener named Jared who wanted to change his life for his wife and daughter.

“You, sir, for me, are a beacon of hope and light in a world that seems to become more dim every day,” the listener wrote to Glenn.

He explained that his wife had been on the verge of leaving him, and “it really caused me to wake up.” In the touching letter, the listener said he wanted to marry his wife all over again to begin a new life with their daughter, citing a time that Glenn quoted 1 Corinthians 13:11, which says, “When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”

GLENN: So I got this letter in: Dear Glenn, I first started listening to you while you were on Fox. Before then, I didn't really pay attention to much of anything. I saw you on Fox one day, and what you said just made sense.

Oh, you were the one.

I've listened to you almost every day since. I mostly catch you on my drive home from work now. Things in the world have changed a lot since then. There are so many who have digressed in society, so much in so little time. There are a few that have actually made any progress. For me, you are a beacon of hope and light in a world that seems to become -- seems to become more dim every day.

The reason why I'm writing this letter is because something happened in my life recently, where I almost lost my wife and my child, whom I have neglected due to childish influences and things in my life that were still present from my childhood that only consumed me.

My wife was on the verge of leaving me and almost did. It really caused me to wake up. I have since done everything I could to change. Change for myself. For her. My daughter.

The change for God and the betterment of mankind. I remember your words from a few months ago when you said, now is the time to put your childish things away. Time to become a man and take a stand.

For me and my family, it starts with God. I have slowly, but with full commitment, been changing my life for the better, especially where my wife and daughter are concerned. I love my wife and try to prove it to her every day and will for the rest of my life and for all eternity. I will become the better man that she expects of me.

If I may, I would like to ask if it's not too much, I would forever be in your debt, if you would read this letter on the air and ask my wife Charity Murphy, if she would be willing to remarry me again so we can start a new life together with our daughter.

Jared, no, I'm not going to do that. But...

STU: Such a nice moment you've ruined.

(laughter)

STU: Wow, that's a really cool story.

GLENN: So, Jared, let us know what happens. I'm assuming that she's going to say, oh, yes, yes. Hopefully she's listening to us when she says that.

STU: Uh-huh. That would be most appropriate.

GLENN: It would be most appropriate. It would be very inappropriate.

STU: If it was something else. I really hope that goes well. I always get nervous about those things, because I have no idea whether -- she could just be, I'm really not interested actually.

GLENN: Yeah. Do you remember, years ago, we called somebody -- we did something like that. And we called somebody. And -- remember? And she was like, yeah. Yeah. No. I don't think so.

It was the most awkward. Because he was -- do you remember this?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: It was a long time ago. Because he was so excited. And he thought she was so in love. And it was all -- and she was not having it. It was bad. It was so awkward. I felt so bad for that guy.

STU: Because there's two things going on there. One, I don't necessarily want whatever you're asking me to happen. And, two, I'm annoyed you're embarrassing me in front of the nation. Both of those things could be part of the equation here.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Not that that's happening for you, Jared. That's all good stuff.

STU: We assume there's hugging.

GLENN: Hugging, kissing.

STU: Oh, wow. This is -- what a great moment.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. This is so beautiful. That kind of stuff.

STU: Yeah. And if not, we don't want to know what happens. So we'll assume it went well.

GLENN: Call our attorneys, okay? Deal with them.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
