Randy Featherston, KBJS Station Manager and Morning Host.
Randy Featherston is the station manager and "morning guy" since 1993. As a young man Randy was asked "What is your life purpose?" and "What makes life worth living?"
Randy says, "It took many years for it all to make sense. I grew up in a wonderful Christian Home with lots of love, but from the age of 5 to about 12 all I wanted to do was watch cartoons, eat candy and play. At age 6 I asked Jesus into my heart, and at 12 I was baptized. My mom and dad had me, my two brothers, and my sister memorizing a LOT of scriptures during those years from age 9 - 16. But, ages 17-27 I was outwardly 'okay', but living a life of quiet desperation inside.
"The darkness and depression caused me to search for REAL answers to life. Those three basic emotions of hostility, anxiety and guilt were making a HAG out of me, but God had me on the 'back side of the desert' as a single man so that He could show me the answers from His Word.
"I think Satan's greatest tool is DISTRACTION - anything to keep us from His Word!
"Read Isaiah 26:3, John 17:3, and Psalm 16:11. As I memorized these verses and hundreds more, I began to realize that Jesus was not just a part of my life but the CENTER of my life. Out of many experiences walking with Him, I saw three basic answers to any struggle I might go through: Surrender, Be Thankful, and Obey.
"I am so grateful that God has now blessed me with a life worth living and even a loving, godly wife to share it with. It is my highest joy to share with anyone God brings across my path, or with you listening on the radio, the LIFE that is only found through the Lord Jesus Christ and His Word!"
