  • Ali Matthews (and Rick Francis) — Covenant Award Winning Recording Artist (Performing LIVE In Studio)
    This multi-award winning singer-songwriter has released a brand new CD entitled Looking for Christmas. The disc is a follow-up to her successful CD, "On Angels’ Wings." This endeavour came in a year of many challenges for the singer. "I started 2008 feeling exhausted and miserable. I was on the edge of depression and I knew I had to make some positive changes. So I took a break from performing for several months and focused on my health and the development of this new project." Now, 45 pounds thinner, she feels like a new person. "We finished the CD in the same week I ran a half-marathon in September. Both accomplishments felt so rewarding - the fulfillment of months of really hard work." Having just returned from performing at the 28th Annual Gospel Music Association Covenant Awards in Calgary, Ali also picked up four Covenant awards, tying her with rockers, Starfield, as the most awarded artist!

    Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!
    This week on the Counsel Of Many: a man wants some advice on how to stop cheating on his wife.
    "For as long as I can remember I’ve always struggled with being sexually pure, in thoughts as well as actions. I’ve been to counselling, prayed and had others pray over me. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve asked God to heal me. Yet here I am, well into my adult years, married, kids, and I still struggle with not only keeping my thoughts pure but my actions as well. I seem to be a very sexual being, more so then most. I flirt with women. I’ve cheated on my wife many times. I still masturbate, mind you no where near as much as I used to. Every once in a while I still go to strip clubs. And here’s the thing - I really do want to follow Christ and haven’t quit on my faith for over 20 years now. But I’m scared that one of these days I really will quit trying and give up totally on hoping God will heal me. I’m pretty close to just facing the fact that I will always struggle with this stuff so I might as well stop struggling. The hypocrisy and deception is slowly killing me from the inside out. I know that even though my wife and kids don’t know about my secret life that I’m deceiving them. That’s the part that kills me the most. Apparently, God can forgive me, but He can’t heal me, so I’m not too worried about Him. I don’t want to hurt my family. I really do love them. I just can’t seem to change. What do I do?"

  • What should be our response to abortion? Picketing & protesting & praying?
    Picketing & protesting & praying? How involved should we be as people who believe that the fetus is life? If it’s murder, how do we stop it?Abortionist George Tiller, who currently faces 19 criminal charges for performing illegal late-term abortions in Kansas, was recently caught on hidden tape admitting that he has performed abortions as close as one day before the mother's delivery date. Watch this O’Reilly clip and then call us with your response. Hearing the plight of this young woman, what should be done? More importantly, how do we engage in this debate here in Canada where we actually gave the Order Of Canada Award to one of the world’s most prominent abortionists? .

  • Is there anything wrong with going to different churches instead of just one?
    There is a growing trend amongst Christians. Many seem to be attending multiple churches over the course of a year. Whether it’s to get a better understanding of the wider body of Christ or it’s to experience different preachers or worship styles, more and more Church goers are forgoing church membership and long term commitment at one particular church. Do you see anything wrong with this?
