Try, Try Again

Thomas Edison, thought by many to be the greatest inventor in the history of the world had 10,000 failed experiments before he finally invented the light bulb. That’s not ten, or a thousand, that’s ten thousand…failures. He became the laughing stock of those who knew of his failures. They believed he was wasting his time. But not Edison. Later in his life he said, "Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize just how close they were to success when they gave up." But can someone actually use failure as a tool to reach his or her success?

All He Did Was Plant a Tree

John Chapman was born September 26, 1774. When he was just a young child, his father went off to fight in the Revolutionary War. The next year his mother died. When his father returned from the war, he had a new wife. The family moved to a tiny house in Longmeadow, Massachusetts and John's father and stepmother proceeded to have ten more children. John went to school for a few years but by the time he was twenty he was working for a apple grower in Pennsylvania.


By Jerry Stewart Here’s another amazing story. Not because this American was so young, but because he was so old. 72 years old. His name was John Burns. When the Civil War broke out in 1861, John Burns tried to enlist in the Union Army but he was turned away because he was so old. But in July of 1863 as the two great armies, North and South, met near the little town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and prepared for one of the bloodiest battles ever fought on U.S. soil, John asked no man for permission to enlist. He just grabbed up his old musket and headed for the Union lines.

Where Was God on 9/11

By Jerry Stewart Listen On the morning of September 11, 2001, members of a Middle East terrorist group boarded four of our U.S. passenger planes and succeeded in using these planes to kill thousands of innocent American people. These terrorists believed that if their plan would work, America would crumble – but they were wrong. Their terrorist plan may have worked. All of their calculation of time and place may have succeeded, but they made one grave error – they underestimated the American people.

The Great American Revival

By Jerry Stewart
Listen As I’ve spent time studying our American history and just how we came to be a nation, there has always been one question I have not been able to resolve, and that is just how the thirteen colonies were able to join together to take on the British Empire. You see, the colonies were made up of people who had come from many different places. And, although they were all under the rule of the British, they were certainly not all English. Plus, the colonies had taken a position that each colony stood alone and was not necessarily connected to any other. In fact, when someone arrived from another colony they were treated as a foreigner.

The Mystery Man

By Jerry Stewart
Listen We’ve all heard the story of the 56 delegates who came together in Philadelphia on July the fourth, 1776 to declare our nation's freedom. But did you know there was another man there that day? A mystery man that to this day, who he was, where he was from, even his name remains a mystery. President Ronald Reagan spoke about his unknown stranger in a speech given on July the third 1981, and this is what he said:

Made In America

By Jerry Stewart
Listen How has America managed to become such a successful nation? As history goes, we're still a young country, practically babies. How did we get to be so strong and successful in just over 200 years? Well, I believe it's because, first and foremost, our country has been blessed. It is clear that long ago, perhaps as early as the pilgrims landing on Plymouth Rock, maybe even sooner, God determined to bless America.

Are We Boiling in Our Own Grease?

By Jerry Stewart
Listen If a person wants to achieve true success in all areas of life, there is one key ingredient he must have. Personal integrity. Quite frankly, of all the things I see in America today that are so good, I believe it's sad but true. Little by little, as a nation, America is losing its integrity. We've lost sight of the moral ideals and principles our country was founded upon. And this moral decay is so gradual, so subtle, most people don't even see it.
