“I got hooked on the stuff as a kid. The rush wasimmediate and fantastic. But gradually I discovered it took more and more to meet my needs. I was hooked.” The addiction? Money. Two hundred proof money.” – Choice radio spot
Eleven inspiring 60-second radio spots (and two 30-second ones) with ideas to help people live better, more simply.
The 60-second spots are written and voice by David Augsburger, long-running voice of Choice radio spots produced for about 20 years in the 70s – 90s. In true “more with less” fashion, we carefully scrutinized radio spots from the 1981 series, Choice: Living More with Less and found a number that were amazingly current for 2011 and beyond. The two 30-second spots won a Gracie award from American Women in Radio & TV in 2005.
These radio spots relate to a book published first in 1980 which sold over 115,000 copies, Living More With Less, by Doris Janzen Longacre and a 30th anniversary updated edition by Valerie Weaver-Zercher.

Those who are my foes without cause are mighty, and many are those who hate me wrongfully. Those who render me evil for good are my adversaries because I follow after good. — Psalms 38:19-20 (NRSV) • Context: Psalms 38:1-22
Be still before the Lord, and wait patiently for him, do not fret over those who prosper in their way. Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath. Do not fret –it leads only to evil. For the wicked shall be cut off, but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land. A little while, and the wicked will be no more, though you look for them, they will not be found. But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace. — Various excerpts from Psalms 37:1-40 (NRSV)
Malicious witnesses rise up, they ask me about things I do not know. They repay me evil for good, my soul is forlorn. But as for me, when they were sick, I wore sackcloth. — Psalms 35:11-13 (NRSV) • Context: Psalms 35:1-28
A king is not saved by his great army, a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a vain hope for victory, and by its great might it cannot save. — Psalms 33:16-17 (NRSV) • Context: Psalms 33:1-22
