ABOUT THE HOST

MY ARMOR
In his My Armor podcast, Mikey Esparza brings his wit and grit together with his Christian walk and talk. This smooth-headed man with the appealing voice and easy laugh is definitely a paradox. With his tattooed arms, and steely gaze, he embraces the “tough guy” look in his publicity photos. But in reality, Esparza is a man with a big heart who readily admits his frailties; who rises to professional and personal challenges; who leads an organized campaign against cruelty; and who is far more likely to try to save your soul than hurt a hair on your head.

THE PODCAST
Mikey makes it very clear that he’s no theologian, nor a preacher or biblical scholar. He’s merely a guy who loves Jesus and loves to share what the Bible has to say about our lives today. From topical issues we all face to current events and their influences on the decisions we make, Mikey provides his Biblically based insights on what God teaches him week-to-week and day-to-day. With that perspective, Mikey waxes retrospectively, introspectively and scripturally as he takes a good hard look at the role Jesus has played in his life’s story as well as the starring role he’s waiting to play in your story, too.

PODCASTER BIO
Mikey Esparza has been a radio personality at KCBQ radio in San Diego and then in San Jose at KSJO, with an evening show that also aired in Dallas. This was where he first created “The Mikey” show, with his colorful cast of characters and his penchant for the outrageous. Mikey has many colorful tales to tell in his journey to become a Christian. In 2003, he surrendered his life to Jesus. In his words, he was toned down, but still edgy, and in 2004, he finally admitted he had a drinking problem and checked himself into the Betty Ford Center. That’s where he began the process of kicking his habit and actually living the Christ-like life.

Mikey works with a Christian organization called Outside the Bowl. Based in Carlsbad, it helps poverty-stricken countries by building super-kitchens that feed hungry children with as many as 2,000 meals per day.

With his BeDifferentpact.org, Esparza says he hopes to change American culture. Celebrities and listeners alike have signed the pact and wear the black bracelet in an effort to draw attention to their efforts. “We live in a culture that celebrates meanness,” states Esparza. “The idea behind this movement is to think about our behavior. Let’s open doors for others, and let’s not cut them off on the freeway. Think about what you say to your family members. In short, treat people with kindness and love.”

My Armor 32: How Do We Get To Heaven?

As I recently read 1 Peter 2, I realized Peter’s main point is this: Buck up, Cowboy! Figure it out! And just like I discovered in James’ epistle, there are things both in James and in Peter’s letters that are hard to hear, but very important for each of us to come face-to-face with. Here’s […]

My Armor 31: Anger

Today I want to discuss the topic of anger, how anger affects our lives and how it affects us in general. I have always said anger is hurt, sadness, and fear. Every single time you’re angry you can recede it to one of those three. Once you can identify it before you blow up you […]

My Armor 30: How 2 Pray

So, I run the heater during the day and my air conditioner at night.  I think I sleep better when I’m in a cryogenic state.  What this turns into is a great night’s sleep for me, but I wake up in an icebox, so I have to run the heater full-tilt when I wake up.  […]

My Armor 29: How To Live the “Christian Life” (Ephesians Four)

So, Ephesians chapter four tells us: Always be humble and gentle. Not “sometimes” or “whenever you think about it”… but ALWAYS be humble and gentle! Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. 3 Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with […]

My Armor 28: Suffering Is For All Of Us, But It Doesn’t Last Long

Some weeks are better than others. My divorce is going to be finalized very soon. Getting over something like this isn’t easy. And we all go through things like this – maybe not a divorce, but other types of loss. I took my sons to Target recently. While there, we ran into a woman who […]

My Armor 27: A Local Fire & What It Means To Follow Jesus

Spiritual attacks will happen no matter what. No matter what you’re up to, where you are, or who you’re around… if you are dedicated to serving God, you will be under attack. Not that it was a spiritual attack, but I witnessed a huge fire today. A motor home sales lot saw their service center […]

My Armor 26: Temptations, Humility and Donuts

I’ve got three boys: a nine-year-old and twin six-year-olds. And yesterday, I made the biggest mistake ever! I offered to them that we could do “…whatever you want!” They didn’t have an immediate answer, but eventually the topic of donuts for breakfast came up. You wouldn’t think this would be a big deal… until the […]

My Armor 25: Hold Your Tongue!

James is a tough book for me to wrap my arms, head, and heart around. It sometimes seems to run contrary to the letters Paul wrote, which discuss at length how we can’t do anything to earn our salvation, we are saved by grace alone… it’s all good. But then James writes “You know… if […]

My Armor 24: Repentance, Forgiveness & Luke Skywalker

You go through life as a Christian and as you roll through life, day to day, you’re going to be faced with so much garbage. It hits you from all over. You’re inundated. And it’s heavy. And the reason that I wanted to do a Christian podcast is so that I could possibly help build […]
