9: Love, Joy, Peace

There is so much wrapped up into how we love, who we love, and what our love language is. Whether natural or spiritual, love is the key to all unlocked doors.
Joy is automatically connected to happiness but we will look at how it carries past being happy or unhappy.
The fond connector, peace, joins forces with joy and expresses the importance of having it.
Join us as we unfold what these three fruit of the spirit means to us both naturally and spiritually.

8: How to deal with Grief during the holidays Part II

We all know that death is inevitable. But what happens when you have to deal with it during the holiday season? How do you contend with seeing family members and seeing that empty spot that once held your loved one? Listen closely as the Christian Coffee Chat Sisters bring these questions to a head,, along with our special guest, Karen Portis, who has dealt with many deaths in a row back to back.


For some, it’s easy to make a Christmas wishlist and tell your loved ones what you desire to see under the Christmas tree. For some, it’s delightful to go out in the hustle and bustle of gift buyers at the malls, retail shops, etc. It’s even entertaining for some people to wait until the day before Christmas to do their holiday shopping to catch those last minute sales and discounts.But for the remaining majority, it can be very depressing, very tiring and very draining. What about those that have to face this holiday season without their loved one? Their spouse, their child, or close friend? How do you get through such a family-oriented season without that person or those people? Let’s dig into some of the thoughts and feelings of those ones who have these questions before them.

6: Thankfulness


It doesn’t take someone of a certain stature, a particular tax bracket or of a particular race or culture to be thankful. We don’t think to be grateful for being able to blink our eyes or wiggle our toes, or even cough or sneeze. Those are all things that we do so regularly and so commonly that it’s not thought of as something to be grateful for.

As you listen to this episode of “Thankfulness”, think about the small things that’s often looked over and begin to make a challenge for yourself to begin thanking God for ALL things, not just the ‘norm’.

The Bible tells us that we are to be grateful for all things. That’s even including the BAD things, things that catch us off guard, or even things that don’t necessarily have a pleasant ending. But through it all, remember that God is in control of it all, but he wants us to be grateful and remain grateful!

5: Grateful


Tis the season of thanksgiving, which we as Christians have been mandated to do every day. The bible says “In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ for you”. But because it has been set aside to pay closer attention to at this time, we thought it would be fitting to acknowledge it openly with you, our viewing and listening audience.
Today’s episode focuses on being “GRATEFUL” (word of the day). When we carry on with our daily lives, we often forget just how good God is and what he does for us on a day-to-day basis. We hone in on the small things of life that we take for granted and openly speak on what we should be grateful for.

4: Check-in

Many times we are busy with life ~ the cares of this world, and so forth. We are working, taking care of our loved ones, starting businesses, attending on-line classes, raising children, and being a spouse. Whatever your daily tasks are, we seldom think to stop what we are doing to check on someone else’s well-being, to see how their day went or even to return a phone call or text message.

This week’s episode is honing in on our podcasts hosts and how they are REALLY doing. In other words, we are ‘checking in” on each other, just making sure that as life happens, they don’t get lost in the shuffle of daily activities, weekly chores, and monthly routines.

It is our effort today, to get you to look at someone else for a moment and make sure your friends, loved ones, co-workers, family (both natural and church) are REALLY okay. Be sure to ‘check-in’.

3: Self-Image

So many times we look in the mirror and immediately grade our looks on a scale of 1-10. In most cases, we either grade our looks upon what someone else has told us; how we have compared ourselves to what we’ve seen or what we feel should look different because of what we’ve heard.

In this episode, we will chat about self-image with three points of discussion:

How you view yourself
How others see you
How God sees you.

Grab your cup of coffee and let’s chat!

2: When was the last time you cleaned out your closet?

This segment of conversation will demonstrate what it’s like to DECLUTTER all of the various things that have caused one to become stagnated, to become slowful, to become discouraged, or just plain preoccupied with life. Sometimes we are so caught up with everything going on in the world or in someone else’s life that we haven’t taken the time to see about our own lives and what’s gotten us to this point in life.

We want to zone in on a couple of particular areas that have our closets so full of STUFF that we can’t be useful to anyone, including our families and ourselves, but especially to the work of the Lord.

Join Christian Coffee Chat while we dive into this topic and come to a christian perspective while we’re doing it.

About Us

ROCKFORD, IL-  SOAR Radio made history this week when The Nielsen Company  officially added it as the first gospel internet radio station on the official Nielsen BDS Gospel National Airplay  panel. “We are all excited at the credibility this classification brings our station,” says CEO/Founder Justin Djuane Francis. “We’ve been working on this for a while so I’m really excited that it has now come to fruition.” The Nielsen Broadcast Data System (BDS) monitors airplay detections of songs and provides the data that Billboard Magazine uses for its various charts.

“We are so thrilled to welcome SOAR Radio into the Nielsen home. It will be the first to set the tone for many gospel internet radio stations to come,” says Andrew Forsyth, Nielsen Operations Consultant. SOAR Radio is only the sixteenth internet radio station that Nielsen monitors in the entire world.

SOAR Radio was established on August 1, 2014 in Rockford, IL. The 24/7 station is the leading source of inspirational and gospel music in the Rockford area and the MidWest region. SOAR Radio has hosted more than twenty talk shows and music programs. Currently, SOAR Radio is the home of the “JD Morning Show,” which highlights news topics, inspirational dialogue, new gospel music and hot topics of the hour. It is hosted by Justin Djuane Francis and area personalities. “Happy Times” and “Reach out and Touch the Hem of His Garment,” as well as “Radiant Life” have been fan favorites since the station’s beginnings. More recently, SOAR has added new shows, such as “Dr. Williams Live,” “W.I.N.” and a daytime show live from New York hosted by Bro. Ron called “Kingdom Fly Radio.” On Saturdays, SOAR Radio highlights the best in Soul and R&B with DJ Rated AG.

“Justin is a trailblazer and has shown that persistence and hard work pays off,” says Bill Carpenter, CEO of Capital Entertainment, a company that has provided public relations consultation to Tyscot Records, Time Life Music, Warner Bros. Records, Sony Legacy and the Capitol Christian Music Group.

Justin Djuane Francis has been active in the gospel arena since the age of thirteen. At the age of 18, he wrote and placed his first commercial recording with New Haven Records artist Joshua’s Troop. It led to a five-song publishing deal with SONY BMG. Since then, Justin has written songs for a variety of gospel artists such as Virtue, Darwin Hobbs, Amber Bullock, Damita Haddon, Lowell Pye, and L. Spenser Smith. SOAR Radio can be heard across the internet directly at or by downloading the Soar Radio app from mobile devices.
