Why are we so mean, angry, bitter, and miserable if we are proclaiming Jesus Christ as our Personal Savior?

Was that not who we were before we surrendered our life to Christ?

Did we not come to Him to make a change for betterment?

I often hear Saints say, "Well that's just me and I am going to say what's on my mind." This is after they have spoken harsh words or hurt someone's feelings. Or they may say, "This is me and I am not going to change." Something is wrong, y'all....

Should we not be speaking with our heart? Or better yet, shouldn't we think before we speak? Especially, to consider other people's feelings.

I don't know about you, I must tell you truth. I often pray begging God to please never let the old JoAnne rise up and come out. I did not like that side. Talking about a miserable wreck. I was truly a wretched undone. Listen to me, people are going to always try to push you back to the old you and if you cave in they will talk about you and say all matter of evil things about you. Please don't let it happen? Change shows us as a representative for Jesus. I prefer to be talked about as being loving and humble as oppose to being classified as a mean and cruel person proclaiming to be saved. Wouldn't you? Help us Holy Ghost?

I am striving everyday of my life to be like these Scripture below and I pray that you are too. Remember: Our children are watching every move we make.

Matthew 11:29 says, "Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS."

Philippians 2:7-8
Isaiah 50:5-6
Isaiah 53:7
Matthew 12:19
Matthew 27:12-14
Luke 22:27
Luke 23:34
Acts 8:32
1 Peter 2:23
John 1:29

Remember: When we requested change to better our lives we took on the Characteristics of Jesus Christ. We should be striving for perfection every day of our lives. Read: (Matthew 5:48)

In other words: Our Character may have changed but our Personality remains the same.

May God bless you and keep you in His Prefect Will.... I love you with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen

On Sunday, August 5, 2018, I will be dedicating the JoAnne Smith Hooks Show, “The Hour of Brokenness” on KEPX Radio and Live on Facebook to my late brother, Leroy Smith. He served in the Vietnam War and went through TRAUMA, which brought great STRESS into his life. He only wanted someone to have a listening ear to feel the pain, trauma, and stress he went through. I had that listening ear, I heard his stories. Now, I understand his pain and brokenness. Therefore, on August 5, 2018 we will begin “The Legacy of Leroy Smith – A War Hero.” We discovered that
he was not alone. My brother loved and cherished his family.

Please join us in a round table discussion with the VETERANS TO DISCUSS (PTSD) – POST TRAUMA STRESS DISORDER:

My Special Guests will be:
1. Bishop Roy Dixon
2. Pastor Duret Gray
3. Minister Karyes Stockdale & Guests
4. Elder Reginald Griddine
5. Pastor Frank Goring & others

More information will be forth coming. If you are a Veteran and you are interested in joining the discussion on this topic please contact me. We are also seeking for females that have been in the Services and are interested in joining in the group discussion, as well.
Please continue to pray for our Veterans. Will you help us spread the word, please?

PS. R.N., Nancy Mathews, will you please join in with us on this show?

Love you,
JoAnne Smith Hooks


Yesterday, my husband and I goes to pick up my car from the shop. A young man brings 3 forms for my husband to sign. He explains to my husband as highlighting each areas to sign with a yellow marker as to what supposedly the forms were pertaining too. I asked my husband, "Aren't you going too read those forms prior to signing them?" He says, "You can read them." This was after he had signed them. Who does that? Well the beat goes on. As reading the forms, I saw a descrepency and I questioned it. The young man told me, "I don't have any idea what's in those forms." He then said, "I just work here." He said, "Let me read it so I can explain it to you." He still didn't give me the correct information to the question that I asked.

Now, I knew it wasn't anything that I could do because the dispute would have been the forms have already been signed. The moral to the story is: Please read the fine print before signing anything. The problem that we have in this day and time is something that I often hear, "It's to long and it's to much to read." Be careful, this is the reason for the fine print because they feel that you won't read it. So now, they will tell you anything and it may be that you are signing your life away. Help us Holy Ghost? How would you have handled this situation?

Love you,

JoAnne Smith Hooks



"Dear Readers,

As we become leaders in positions that God has placed us in. We should never forget our LoDebar experiences (2 Samuel Chapter 9), as to where God has brought us from. Our key factor should be based on winning "Souls for Christ" for the sake of the Gospel....You know why? Because if we could take a moment to look back on our lives we will remember that someone led us to Christ, one day!

Wasn't it the best day of your life?

Will you help us spread the love? God knows that's what our nations are in need of right now.....

Love you,

As the Lord allowed me to launch the "JoAnne Smith Hooks Show/The Hour of Brokenness" on KEPX Radio Sunday, February 18, 2018. I had not a clue that it would explode on a high magnitude starting out and I am so grateful! I am so blessed that you all are willing to share your topics and stories through your "Brokenness". There are so many topics to cover. I will try to go live on Facebook at the 3:00pm hour PST. Yet, if that doesn't happen it will not prevent you from hearing the show. I really need your support. Therefore, I am asking you to please call in and listen by phone at: 605-562-4269

Hopefully, the link below will take you directly to the show. We play Gospel music when the shows are not on...


I will place a note on Facebook to let you know that I am going on and will you reply to let me know that you are listening, please? Even, if you don't stay on the full hour. This will be how I will receive my ratings until they get the line open where you can actually call in to talk one on one. Will you please tell your friends to call in, as well?

Now, if you are interested in a prerecorded interview. Please let me know. This way you can go back in and check your taping prior, before I place your story on the air. We can do this asap. Just say the word? Come on and tell your story. That's what this platform is for. We must be able to help others. Lets be transparent. If God did it for us, He will definitely do it for others. Do you agree?

For the prerecording I can get up to 100 people on the line....If we get several people that are interested, I will launch the number and the extension or you can call me prior to the show at:  619-618-0037

Let me know what you think, okay? Hopefully, you will be on the line with us every Sunday at 3:00pm Pacific Standard Time.

Love you,
JoAnne Smith-Hooks
