One of the most devastating things that any home can go through is life without a father. The leadership of America is hurting because of the lack of leadership in homes across the country. Join us as we hear from Bill Dotson, the founder of the Abiding Fathers ministry. Bill and his group are focusing on helping fathers all across the land to focus on their role in the home in efforts to improve the family outcome.
The Press & Reach Podcast is here to encourage and remind you that you are not walking through this alone. We seek to lift people up in their business, in their ministry, in their faith. Above all, Press & Reach exists to lift up the name of the Lord. We’ve heard from brothers and sisters in Christ who’ve shared different stories of faith here. Today, we’re hearing from our host, Jake Enriquez. He absolutely loves the Lord and is unashamed of the gospel of Jesus. In addition to hosting this podcast, he’s a real estate investor, a prison minister, a devoted husband, a son, a brother, and loving father to seven kids (plus a son-in-law). Today, Jake is sharing his own personal testimony, to tell you what the Lord has done!
Today’s episode tackles this common question, and those that come along with it. The short answer is to fall in love with Jesus. Joining the discussion is Chris Weatherly. He, his wife, and their two young children, live in Winter Haven, Florida, where he is the associate pastor of Christ Community Church. Chris has a heart for connecting people with Jesus, the Hope we need to continually point people to.
We all get hit in life with some pretty devastating news. The circumstances, and how we deal with them, are different for everyone. Today’s guest is driven. She’s an overcomer. She’s a sister in Christ. She’s Mom to two terrific children, the living legacy of her and her late husband. Like others we seek to reach with this podcast, she’s unashamed to tell you that she lives her life for God. Join us as Ms. Regina Thompson shares how there is nothing too hard for God!
The joy of the Lord is truly our strength as Christians, today and always. How do we use this strength in an everyday walk of life? The Word tells us that “God so loved the world”, so what else do we need to know? As believers, we can’t walk around with permanent frowns. The world needs to see the joy of the Lord in us, in all circumstances. Look up, get excited, and be encouraged about where the Lord has us in this day!
Our guest on today’s episode is Mr. James Bell, an active volunteer with the Kairos Prison Ministry in Texas. Kairos (“God’s special time”) is reaching the incarcerated in 38 states and 13 countries.

He’s on the podcast today, sharing how God took “the most shy, introverted kid on the planet” and made him into a successful businessman, speaker, and leader.
Less than a week ago, the small Texas town of Sutherland Springs met unspeakable grief. In times when evil seems so prevalent, we may find ourselves wondering “Lord, how long will You wait?” or “Lord, how long must we deal with this?” The minor prophet Habakkuk surely asked the same. And what God told Habakkuk then is still true for us today, which is “the just shall live by faith”. We don’t have all the answers, but we do have the promises of God to rely on. The situation may not be “OK”, but we can still trust that “all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” We won’t always understand it, but we can surely testify to what becomes of it. Today’s podcast begins with our host sharing some of his experience in a time of loss and grief, asking “why?”, and finding that God’s still at work.
One of the most difficult things we have to deal with in this life is unforgiveness. But, it has to be dealt with, because otherwise, it imprisons us. It immobilizes us spiritually and mentally. As long as we harbor unforgiveness, we are not living in the fullness of God. Today, our host discusses the two kinds of forgiveness that need to take place if we are to live free.
On today’s podcast, our host speaks to the men, about men. It’s more than just mere opinion, as current stats regarding our inmate population can attest. So many of the issues our society faces today can be traced back to a lack of leadership in our homes.
