Day to day, Glenn manages a call-in prayer and counseling department at a ministry in Plano, Texas named Hope For The Heart. Regularly, he helps people find hope and healing who are struggling with tough life issues. But. before he began working here almost 20 years ago, Glenn grew up with a not-so-easy childhood of abuse and neglect on all levels.

Off for a couple of weeks around the holidays, we are back with the podcast. Today’s podcast comes as we continue our conversation with “An Honest Look at Our Attitudes Towards Homelessness.” Whether they living under a bridge or in the nicest home that money can buy, with a generous attitude of Christ towards our fellow man, God can do amazing things through us to bless and minister with an honest heart to those living around us. We hope that today’s conversation opened your eyes a bit more to the needs of the homeless community –that they are all people too, created in the image of God just as you and I are.
