Dove Award Winner Cheri Keaggy Appears On Today’s Edition of CTN’s ‘Bridges’
Dove Award-winning singer/songwriter and speaker Cheri Keaggy is a guest on today’s edition of Bridges, the flagship program on the Christian Television Network. During the show, Keaggy discusses how God restored her following the divorce from her high school sweetheart, and offer hope to people who may be struggling with divorce. Monica Schmelter hosts the series, which airs on WHTN in Nashville at 9:30 a.m. C.T. and 8:30 p.m. C.T., with a repeat airing at 5:30 p.m. C.T. on Saturday, July 27.
“I’m always glad for an opportunity to chat with Monica,” Keaggy says. “Our goal was to encourage people who have believed for a healed marriage but didn’t get one. Through my divorce, I discovered that God can see us through anything and will use our shattered lives for His glory if we’ll let Him. He cared for me and my young adult children in very specific and tangible ways. Perhaps someone watching needs to take hope in that and know that there is life after divorce.”
“We sought Cheri Keaggy out to be a guest on Bridges to share her story of recovering from divorce because Cheri is transparent and offers the hope of healing,” says Schmelter, who, in addition to hosting Bridges, is general manager of WHTN Christian Television Network. “Cheri offers honesty, compassion and real life experience and that’s just what our viewers are looking for.”
Keaggy is currently touring in support of her CD, So I Can Tell, as well as speaking throughout the U.S., particularly to women’s groups.For more information about Bridges, visit ctntv.org. For more information about Keaggy and So I Can Tell, visit cherikeaggy.com.
