About Us

Mission

Our mission is to restore dignity, enhance purpose and build hope. By using radio to create employment opportunities, we can empower those with vision loss.

Renewing Hearts Inc. is Doing Business As, Ocean Waves Radio. Our founder’s mission began at the ocean. The ocean can be fun, full of adventure, beautiful and empowering. It can also be intimidating with the roaring of the crashing waves and vast creatures like sharks that live within.

Our metaphorical expression of facing challenges as falling out of a boat with sharks nipping at heels emphasizes the importance of resilience and the need to make choices in difficult situations. The analogy of “sink or swim” conveys the idea that adversity can be an opportunity for personal growth and determination.

The aspiration to “create swimmers” aligns with the mission of Renewing Hearts Inc. It suggests a commitment to empowering individuals to overcome challenges, develop resilience, and navigate through difficult circumstances successfully. This mindset not only fosters a sense of greater independence but also promotes a supportive environment that encourages personal development and growth.

Our goal is to use our strong belief in God, music, education, technology and employment as a way to build up those with issues caused by vision loss.  Our hope is to use Ocean Waves Radio as a way to accomplish these goals.

Our team members will refine and extend their skills in all aspects of radio broadcasting to ensure their employability in the blind and sighted communities.

Ocean Waves Radio provides listeners a rich variety of musical genres to suit many tastes.

Acknowledgements

There are so many great people to say thanks to and acknowledge for great support through the process of launching Ocean Waves Radio. Many have given hours of time to encouraging me, fixing file names, helping me find different genres of music, supporting financially and so forth. Below is a list of names of some who have done so much, that Ocean Waves Radio would not exist without them.

Casey Matthews

Casey, thanks so very much for your expertise in IT. I am a total dork when it comes to technology and you have helped me to overcome fear, to learn how to use key commands and screen readers to do so many tasks and important items in order to get to this point. You have helped me to see how patience, while I learn is imperative and you have encouraged me, especially when I really don’t understand how to accomplish a new task. Your helpfulness has assisted me to bring Ocean Waves Radio where it is today. Also, thanks for teaching me how to use Word Press. I will highly recommend you as the most patient and knowledgeable man for trouble shooting and IT assistance.
