Penny :


From the second Penny heard the big radio stations in Boston, God had put it in her heart that this is what she was meant to do. She has moved all around the USA on her radio journey traveling the path God had in store for her in radio and now she feels very blessed to be able to share contagious encouragement with Keep The Faith.

Life can be difficult at times, but sometimes all you need is a little reminder that God IS there and he IS in control....you are NOT alone. Penny is the mother of 3 beautiful boys, and an amazing IT husband.

Jayme Summers : Weekend Air Talent

Jayme Summers

Weekend Air Talent

I grew up in Texas, but Georgia is forever home to me. It's where I married my husband and where my kids were born. A big piece of my heart sits in a small coastal town in Southern Georgia. I kind of fell into radio, with zero intentions of being on-air (I was painfully shy... still am but I hide it better). One day a DJ got sick, and 18 years later here I am. I really love what I do and I am thankful for the many opportunities I've been given. My perfect weekend would include some kind of on the water activity with my kids and husband. I just love the water. Ocean, lake, river, or stream; if I can dip my toes in it, I'm happy. One of the greatest pieces of advice I've ever received didn't come in the form of advice. My husband and I were having lunch with our then Pastor and Friend, Brother Roland Dann. At the time there had been a lot of debate over the location of the nails. Were they in Jesus' hands or wrists? I asked Bro. Roland what he thought, and he responded with "Does it matter? What really matters is that he was hanging on a cross and dying for our sins.” That one statement, 15 years ago, is something that stuck with me. I constantly ask myself if my focus is on the nails or the cross.
