Season 1, Episode 1- Making Life Matter

By Shane Stanford

Welcome to You Matter! In our inaugural episode, host Shane Stanford shares why “you matter” has been a key part of his ministry’s motto over the last 30 years. He shares his testimony relating to his medical struggles as a hemophiliac who contracted HIV & Hep C from a blood transfusion and how the challenges he has faced taught him the importance of making each day matter. Shane also shares a preview of the season ahead filled with guests from all walks of life sharing how THEY matter in the seasons, professions, and journeys they are in or on. We are so excited you are here, and we hope over the course of the season you will see how YOU matter too!

Scripture References:

Matthew 5:13-16 (New Living Translation)

“You are the salt of the earth. But what good is salt if it has lost its flavor? Can you make it salty again? It will be thrown out and trampled underfoot as worthless.

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father."

1st Corinthians 15:58 (New Living Translation)

"So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless."
