This is the podcast to strengthen, encourage and beat back the hands of the enemy which comes to kill, steal and destroy. When you are as strong as you are, destined for greatness, gifted and blessed, the only way for evil to win is to get inside your head. Using my experiences and gifts this hope dealer will be telling stories and using all the resources I can to motivate, inspire, encourage and share hope.
There is some fun stuff in here too because it is me, Rev. Kenn Blanchard.
If you are not the one in need, help me help those that are.
If I Die Tonight? Think About it!
The truth we all know …we are all going to die.
When? We can’t control. What if we die tonight?
Its message is for everyone who thinks there is no hope…young, old, male, and female.
Think about it. We are all going to die. So, what have we done in life? Does it give us peace? Does it leave us troubled?
After a life in the military, in law enforcement, in the intelligence community, in the travails of civilian life, I saw early what the heroes in my life learned. It’s what we do here that counts. I’ve helped some.
But, I want to help just one more. That’s why I want to reach you with my podcast, “If I Die Tonight.”
You can be clergy, a surgeon, just entering the dating scene, a young mother or a street running thug. Thoughts of what happens if you die tonight aren’t left to 60, 70, or 80-year-olds. They run through and frighten all our thoughts and minds.
I’m here for you. I pray I can help. Listen. Maybe just maybe, we can walk together to peace.
If you don’t consider yourself a fit within traditional religious or psychological shelters, welcome to my world. I don’t fit either. Yes, I’m a minister. But, I own firearms, I listen to and play modern music. I’m an independent thinker.
Too many of us are seeking help…To many feel alone and don’t believe help is available. That despair leaves one in five to think suicide is the answer. It isn’t.
There isn’t any situation God doesn’t know. He’s given us the strength to overcome each. I know this from the Talmud, the Torah, the Bible and Motown’s lyrics.

“If you’ve never heard of, listened to, or read Kenn Blanchard’s work, you owe it to yourself to do so. Kenn is a Reverend, a Vet, a man who’s worn a few hats, and knows a thing or two about guns and life. He’s interesting, insightful, entertaining, and sometimes challenging too in both making you think or disagreeing but he’s wise. Give him a listen.” -name redacted
