‘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.”

Skip to 4:55 in the clip to hear just the letter segment, and listen to Hour 3 of today’s show to hear the happy ending to the story (around 30:45 in the clip).

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
