God's Response to the Unloved (Sermon and Service)
God's Response to the Unloved (Sermon and Service)
God's Response to the Unloved The 29 Chapter of Gensis in the Holy Scriptures: Dr. Butler Speaking at St Paul Baptist Church in Lexington, South Carolina. Leah and Rachel were sisters who were married to the same man. It kind of difficult to tell one story without the other. When Jacob arrived in the land of his uncle Laban, he fell in love with Rachel the moment he saw her. Because he was broke and could not afford the bride price, he agreed to work for Laban for 7 years. Sadly, Laban tricked Jacob by sending in Leah for the honeymoon instead of Rachel. It almost seems as if the wedding happened with Rachel as the bride but in the night, Leah was sent in instead. Nobody would know the difference since in Hebrew weddings, the bride wore a heavy veil and the festivities would continue until dark. Needless to say, Jacob was less than pleased about the trickery of his uncle. Leah was now stuck with Jacob. The following week, Jacob married Rachel. Throughout the marriage, Leah had many children and suffered much. Let’s get into the details of Leah’s ordeal and the lessons we can learn from her life.

Dr. Ceretta Smith Author of The Black Sheep
Delightful! Intriguing! Fun! Inspiration! These are some of the words that could accompany this wonderful new children's book The Black Sheep by Dr. Ceretta Smith. Ceretta was inspired to author a children's book from her original book The Black Sheep a Leader in These Latter Days that chronicles her childhood where she felt she was unloved, unaccepted, and was teased in school because she was so skinny and had bad acne. And for this reason, she called herself the Black Sheep. When she discovered the real meaning of The Black Sheep, it changed her life. Whether The Black Sheep is read to a child or becomes reading material for young readers, it is destined to become a classic.

Interview with Crystal Smith about a collaboration "The Power of Perseverance" A Sisterhood Experience
There is a saying, or so we’ve heard, that God gives His greatest battles to His strongest warriors. Although it’s not written out in scripture, it’s been proven a truth that almost every warrior can attest to. The women of Zeta Alpha Psi Sisterhood have definitely experienced firsthand God’s hand concerning their lives, dreams, and life’s battles and trials. In this collection of testimonies, one can literally feel the power of God through each story. Through each trial and through each victory, one thing is for sure. Had these women not remained persistent, who knows the possible fate of their dreams, desires, and aspirations? However, because they fought the good fight of faith, and stood strong concerning the promises of God, the Power of Persistence will be another monument and testament to how God MOVES. About the interview: We  photograph you and  design countless lifetime memories.  "Over 20 years ago we chose the slogan" , "Capturing  Memories  of A Lifetime"; because we know memories last just that long.  When our flash snaps in just one moment , it's more than just  a portrait.  It REALLY is  "A MEMORY OF A LIFETIME, THAT WILL LAST FOREVER".

Francis Harris Author of "18 Years With Out Sex"
Francis Harris Author of "18 Years With Out Sex"
Francis Harris Author of "18 Years With Out Sex" Growing up, Francis “Frank” Harris lived a comfortable middle-class life. He enjoyed going on trips with his family, playing sports, and making homemade movies with his friends. But after the divorce split his family apart, Frank began seeking comfort in other places. By ninth grade, Frank had dropped out of school, and drugs, guns, and sex had become his new lifestyle. Soon, he was not only using drugs, but he began selling them as well—and became quite successful at it. By age eighteen, he was on the cusp of entering “the big leagues," of the drug world, but then a bad mushroom trip shook Frank’s life to the core. In the aftermath, God got ahold of Frank, and his heart—and then his life was radically transformed. Frank quit drugs, he made the choice to abstain from sex until marriage, he gained a new respect for women, and he went back to school and earned a degree in psychology. But most importantly, he came to know a living, loving relationship with Christ. Now, Frank is a mental health professional, guest speaker, and most recently, a writer. His greatest aspirations are to walk alongside others in life's storms and to follow in the footsteps of Christ. Frank is happily married to his wife, Katie. They welcomed their daughter, Ariel, to their family in April 2022. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0B2J73RRX/ref=dbs_a_def_awm_bibl_vppi_i0

Pam Vincent Interview Part 1
Pamela Vincent We recently featured Pam Vincent and her contribution to some of the biggest rock hits ever. As a member of Brandye Pam and the group performed Background Vocals on Bob Seger's mega-hit "Still The Same".

Soon after her group disbanded, Joyce began singing in sessions that proved more lucrative than being a recording artist. Pam soon followed in her sister's footsteps and united with Joyce in the studio.

A Lynching In South: Justice for Willie Leaphart Part 2
A Lynching In South: Justice for Willie Leaphart Part 2
Part 2: Justice for Willie Leaphart: My Interview is with Mike Burgess is the Lead Teacher for the Center for Law and Global Policy Development at River Bluff High School in Lexington, South Carolina. The Center for Law and Global Policy Development is a two-year program housed at River Bluff High School that is available to all Junior and Seniors of the five high schools in Lexington County School District One. The program focuses on leadership development and policy creation in the areas of law, politics, and foreign affairs. In June 2022, Mr. Burgess will have completed his 27th year as a public high school history teacher in South Carolina. Mike Burgess and his family have attended St. Stephens since January 2011. He is married to his college sweetheart Chrystal and has four children- Caylee, Jackson, Manning, and Madelyn who all attend, or have attended, Lexington County School District One schools. The Burgess family has participated in a variety of programs in the church life of St. Stephens. Currently, Burgess serves on Church Council. A lifelong American Revolution historian and resident of South Carolina, Mr. Burgess received the 2022 South Carolina VFW High School Teacher of the Year Award at a banquet in February. In 2014, Burgess was the South Carolina Sons of the American Revolution Teacher of the Year. Mr. Burgess received his BA in History from the University of South Carolina in 1993 and his MAT from the same university in 1995. LEXINGTON — On May 5, 1890, a Black teenager named Willie Leaphart sat in a Lexington County cell waiting on a new trial ordered by the governor after evidence surfaced proving his innocence in the attempted rape of a White girl. But the 17-year-old never had a chance to win his exoneration. An angry mob of 100 burst into the Main Street jail and poured dozens of bullets into him. Leaphart had just become the county’s first recorded lynching victim. Ten more would follow through 1921. It’s a story that likely would remain obscured if not for the efforts of Michael Burgess, a River Bluff High School history teacher who began digging into Leaphart’s fate in March after a student asked whether the county had ever had a lynching. Since then, he’s given lectures on Leaphart’s story to community organizations and helped co-found a group, the Lexington County Truth and Reconciliation Collaboration, dedicated to accurately chronicling the area’s racially complex history. River Bluff High School history teacher Michael Burgess orients himself along Main Street in Lexington as he compares the location of a courthouse in jail from 1890 against modern-day buildings. Adam Benson/Staff The group wants to see a marker erected at the site of Leaphart’s murder, and Burgess hopes to eventually win him a pardon. Burgess envisions town hall-style talks, cultural events and other education functions in the county of 300,000 — South Carolina’s sixth largest — with Leaphart’s death a springboard. In the tale of Leaphart, Burgess saw a timely symbol of Lexington’s need for reconciliation and honesty in a period of turmoil and upheaval. “What happened on this site has completely disappeared. It’s just not talked about,” Burgess said steps from where Leaphart was shot. A historical marker nearby describes the history and construction of the courthouse grounds. “It’s hard to build a diverse, tolerant community when you haven’t engaged in the reality of the past. We’re losing the roots of our story,” Burgess said. “This community has ignored this and other pieces of history and there are still racial issues in Lexington, and the ability to begin to address those begins with accountability of the past.” #Lynching #Justice #Healing #

Randy Newton: Author of Growing Up Milledgeville
Randy Newton: Author of Growing Up Milledgeville
Randy Newton: In the Bible Belt, musicians have quite a range — from rap to soul to country — and the variety of characters brings the charm and southern grit out during each performance. Listening to a local musician tells stories is very similar to listening to a band that made it big. Talking to people pursuing their dreams, one hears stories of triumph, growth and heartache — stories that transcend local boundaries and the radio waves. For a lot of musicians, church brought out their musical roots. And for one storyteller, Randy Newton, church was just the start for him. At 13, Newton was given a guitar and ever since, his heart has belonged to the song. Growing up in the area, his stories range from local dive bars to restaurants playing, singing and dancing along with multiple bands he has been a part of over the years. “I grew up at a place called the Twilight Restaurant,” Newton said. “Everybody had their first beer and their first kiss at the Twilight. It opened up in the late ‘40s, but it hit the big time in like ’59. It had 25 curb hops, sold 60 cases of beer a night on the curb. In the middle of the curb was a patio, on the backside of this thing was a two-story building that had glass. They turned records. People that were down on the dance floor could look up and say, ‘play Fats Domino,’ or something like that. And they turned records and there was a speaker at all four corners.” Twilight was the place. Whether after Friday night football games or for a date night, it was the joint for music. Newton credits the restaurant for truly giving him his love of music. “In the kitchen were the cooks,” he said. “Jessie Hamilton, who worked for us from age 15 to age 39 was like my big brother, and he was playing the radio and it was always the soul music … and I fell in love with all the black music. On the jukebox and on the curb, they, of course, were playing all the popular music.” From soul to pop — locals danced the night away in the ‘60s at Twilight, but several other local spots were growing in popularity as well. “Swampland, this place that for 27 years was the longest-running show of its type in Toomsboro. Every Saturday night, local bands would come and play and it was the place to be for everybody in Middle Georgia,” Newton said. At the Swampland, Newton recalled, everybody who was somebody was there — politicians, reporters, everybody who was somebody was there. Newton has been a part of several bands, each making a name for itself locally and each coming with its own stories. “We had played every song we knew, twice,” Newton recalled about a performance with one of his bands. “The place was standing up — nobody would leave. We did one song three times. Me and my wife’s big hit was ‘Good Hearted Woman,’ Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, it was a big hit back then and me and her did that song the third time, the place was totally insane. I got chill bumps just thinking about it now.”

Kathryn May Author of "Behind Enemy Lies: Deception and a Journey From Darkness to Light"
About the Author: When God knit me together in my mother’s womb, I believe He added a little extra tenacity and a whole lot of resilience. He knew I’d need it to fight and overcome the battles my life would face. Since I was a little girl there has been an attack on my voice. As a small child I practiced screaming to prepare for the next time I would face my abuser, but when the time came, I couldn’t open my mouth. As I grew, life beat the desire to speak up right out of me. I believed I was damaged goods waiting to be discarded by the next person that came along. The pain of the past marked me. Even when I believe I had something to say, I usually kept quiet for fear it would lead to more pain. Rejection, abandonment, loss of love… In my mid-twenties God set me up to meet a series of women, I call checkpoint people, who over the course of a decade would each teach me a different facet of God’s character. One would share God the Son, Jesus Christ. Another would reveal God the Spirit and my identity in Christ. Lastly one of my beautiful mentors would show me the love of God the Father that would ultimately lead me to trust God and accept my position as a daughter of the King. Through the years of learning who I was created to be, I discovered the courage to find freedom from a life of abuse. My hearts cry was to be whole, healed, and healthy which led me to ferociously go after the healing my mind and heart so desperately needed. I was determined to be free from the pain of the past. In doing so I’ve discovered a new way to live. I’ve found peace that is not of this world (John 14:27). It is now my mission to speak up and comfort others with the same comfort I was comforted with. To encourage women to uncover the lies of the enemy and discover who they were created to be. To walk as daughters who are healed and healthy inside-out. I’m here to tell you sister, if He did it for me, He will do it for you and not only is He able, but He wants to. I now get to do life with my best friend, and the love of my life, James. I am also a mother to three incredible world changers who keep me on my toes and constantly striving to be better. I am a Certified Mental Health Coach through the American Association of Christian Counselors and run a YouTube channel aimed at encouraging women to be the healthiest versions of themselves, inside and out. I promised God if He gave me His words, I would give Him my voice. Here I am Lord, send me… I have been in ministry for ten years, advocating for women to discover the truth of who they are in Christ. I am a certified mental health coach and desire to help others overcome the pain of the past and live with peace and freedom. About her Book: Imagine believing you were sentenced to a life of isolation, fear, rejection, pain, and loneliness. That there was nothing beyond the darkness of the prison you'd been thrown into. This was how Kathryn lived most of her life. Held captive by the lie that what was done to her defined who she was, until she heard the voice of God calling her out. This is one woman's story of escaping a life of abuse, breaking free from the lies that bound her, punching fear in the face, and discovering her true identity. Through her memoir, Kathryn reminds us that no matter how painful our journey is, God desires us to live in freedom. We have the opportunity to live fully aware of our identity in Christ. Kathryn shares personal revelations and biblical principles that led her to the truth of who she was made to be. Truth...that is the same for you.

Genesis 29:21-30New International Version 21 Then Jacob said to Laban, “Give me my wife. My time is completed, and I want to make love to her.”22 So Laban brought together all the people of the place and gave a feast. 23 But when evening came, he took his daughter Leah and brought her to Jacob, and Jacob made love to her. 24 And Laban gave his servant Zilpah to his daughter as her attendant.25 When morning came, there was Leah! So Jacob said to Laban, “What is this you have done to me? I served you for Rachel, didn’t I? Why have you deceived me?”26 Laban replied, “It is not our custom here to give the younger daughter in marriage before the older one. 27 Finish this daughter’s bridal week; then we will give you the younger one also, in return for another seven years of work.”28 And Jacob did so. He finished the week with Leah, and then Laban gave him his daughter Rachel to be his wife. 29 Laban gave his servant Bilhah to his daughter Rachel as her attendant. 30 Jacob made love to Rachel also, and his love for Rachel was greater than his love for Leah. And he worked for Laban another seven years.

Dr. Michaela O'Donnell: Author of "Make Work Matter, Your Guide to Meaningful Work in a Changing World" Executive director of Fuller Seminary’s De Pree Center for, Leadership, Michaela O’Donnell helps readers pursue meaningful work that will forge inspiring transformation in the world. People are sent into a new world of work with old, outdated tools, expectations, and strategies. This leaves them ill-equipped in finding meaningful work that will make an impact in their communities. The result? Unmet expectations, unfulfilled longings, and a curiosity about how to do the work they sense God is calling them to. Built from research on exemplars who excel at navigating the unknown and filled with stories and insights from faithful entrepreneurs, Make Work Matter (Baker Books, Oct. 2021), teaches readers to: • discover what God is calling them to do in a changing world • define where they are in this season of work • embrace what the Bible says (and doesn't say) about calling • develop a mindset and habits suited for the new world of work • reflect on and work out ways that sustain them on the journey This book will close the gap between what people are doing now and the meaningful work they desire to accomplish. It is the solution to help people chart their way forward! Michaela O'Donnell, PhD, is executive director of FullerSeminary’s De Pree Center for Leadership. She is an entrepreneur, a teacher, and a sought-after speaker and consultant who regularly presents on the topics of vocation, career, and leadership to religious, secular, academic, and lay audiences.

Dr. Butler: The Response: The Cost Of The BIG LIE
Major Correction in the response. The Host said 22 Million was spent but it is 220 million that has been spent in recounts and donations to change the will of the people. Approximately 2.1 million Presidential votes were cast in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix and accounts for most of the state’s population. In recent years, younger voters and people of color have turned the county’s electorate increasingly Democratic—a shift that helped Biden win the traditionally conservative state, by 10,457 votes. Since the election, the county has become a focus of ire for Trump and his supporters. By March, when Logan’s company was hired, the county had already undergone four election audits, all of which upheld the outcome. Governor Doug Ducey, a Republican and a former Trump ally, had certified Biden’s victory. But Trump’s core supporters were not assuaged.

Richard Capreola: The Addicted Child: A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Substance Abuse,
Richard Capriola, substance abuse counselor and author of the book The Addicted Child: A Parent’s Guide to Adolescent Substance Abuse, says that during his time working with adolescents, he noticed that a lot of parents were surprised at the extent of their child’s use of substances. Unfortunately, they misinterpret the signals they’re seeing and they tend to write it off as just being some type of developmental issue. They get trapped into thinking this is just some crazy teenage behavior that’s going on and it’ll pass. And then later, they find out it wasn’t quite the case. Don’t just assume it’s normal adolescent development. Pay attention to any changes you see in the child’s appearance, behavior, and attitude. Those can all be warning signs that maybe something’s going on underneath the surface which you need to investigate a little bit deeper. Seek the Underlying Issue There’s a much better chance of moving adolescents away from alcohol or drug use if parents can identify and address the underlying issue that’s driving the child to use alcohol or drugs. Once you’re able to move the discussion away from focusing on alcohol and drug abuse, you’re opening the door for them to talk about what’s really troubling them and the real reason they’re using alcohol and drugs. And so, you move the conversation to get at the core issue. It’s a Team Effort As much as addiction affects the child, it also affects the entire family system so the family needs treatment as well. And this is where social work comes into play. Dealing with adolescent substance abuse in your family all becomes a team effort because there are a lot of issues involved that go beyond just substance use.

Rob Brown Author of "Truest Fan"
Hello, my name is Rob Brown. My career has been in the financial services industry as a top-producing advisor followed by senior leadership roles. Now, I’m a business coach who helps my clients achieve excellence while living more purpose-filled lives  Over the course of my career, I have discovered that a large part of my success has come through the active encouragement of others. I love cheering on family, friends, colleagues and clients. This book, Truest Fan, distills ways of acting and thinking to perform at your highest level. You follow the story of seven fictional characters that each convey a lesson you can put into practice. Just as in baseball, before you reach the major leagues, you have to learn the basics. This book focuses your attention on what matters in your life – be it a spouse, business, colleagues, or kids. Many people lose years of their life because of the intensity of urgent to-do’s and distractions we all face. Truest Fan strips back the facade. It helps you consider what your life would be like if you were purposely living each day as your own Truest Fan. What would your life be like if you swing for the fences in each relationship, each project, and each goal? Then, what would that be like if you focused a pro mindset and effort on being a Truest Fan to those around you. It might amaze you to find that you begin winning more games.  And along the way you enjoy the journey a whole lot more too! Thank you! From a Truest Fan. -Rob Brown TruestFan.com Contact the Host at www.drajrbutler.com

Sylvia Harris: For Your Glory: New Music and interview.

Part II Tales of a Child Solider
Part II Tales of a Child Solider
Like many others in Australia who are concerned about the plight of refugees I was happy to read that the town of Toowoomba welcomed the very first family to arrive from Sudan with open arms. I could only imagine at the difficulty they had adjusting to life in Australia, but hoped they would find new peaceful lives here. But we have all come to learn that the scars and trauma from growing up in a war torn country can follow people to their new land, and some have difficulty coping with this. As Ayik Chut says himself in this interview, he was fine for the first year here and then things began to unravel for him as the horrors of his time as a child soldier in the Sudanese Army began to catch up with him. He covers a little in this interview of what transpired but the most amazing part of his story we didn’t get to in the interview- that of his career in film and TV! Ayik has worked alongside stars such as Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba, and appeared in a number of TV series such as ‘Safe Harbour’ . He is now the father of two children and a proud Australian.

I don’t have to worry about “Deddy” messing with me again, I thought. But within a few minutes, those feelings quickly changed to anxiety. Deddy came back into my room looking a little deranged and he was holding a gun. He put the gun to my head and asked, “You gonna do what?” My heart felt as if it would pound out of my chest, while the rest of my body felt paralyzed. I tried to shout out, “I WON’T TELL!” but I was too dumbfounded to utter those words. Deddy withdrew the gun from my head and aggressively plunged it into my hand, clenching my scrawny finger on the trigger. As my finger rested reluctantly on the trigger, I was careful not to make one move, terrified the gun might go off. Then in a sober voice, Deddy said, ”No. You can just kill me.” Lastly, he placed the gun to his head and declared, “I’ll kill myself.” My childlike mind desperately tried to absorb everything that had transpired right before me. As things were happening, I marveled at the fact that I might die for boldly blurting out that I was going to tell. I was left wondering if he was really about to fulfill his promise.

The Response: The Making of a Coup
The Response: The Making of a Coup
As if 2020 hadn’t provided us with enough drama, 2021 burst onto our television screens on 6 January with a riotous mob rampaging through the US Capitol in Washington, DC, and disrupting the US Congress’s confirmation of Joe Biden’s election to the presidency, which finally occurred early the following morning. Egged on by current President Donald J. Trump, the US faces its worst constitutional crisis, at least since Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal, if not the 1861-1865 Civil War. There could be another coup attempt by the same people that attempted it on January 6, 2021. I explain what was missing and the ideology of the people leading the next attempt, and how they might succeed if we as a nation aren't diligent in our resolve to restore love with one another.

Author Sarah Geringer
Do you know you can deepen your relationship with God through meditation? It’s one of the essential spiritual disciplines that can help you get more out of your Bible study and strengthen your faith. I began meditating on God’s Word when I bought a One Year Bible back in 2003. The editors of that edition put one verse in bold in each daily reading. I read the passage in the morning and spent a few minutes reflecting on the bold verse. It stuck with me throughout the day. God started using those bold verses to build a deeper relationship between he and I. I started understanding how God saw me, which was so different from how I saw myself. By focusing on a verse of his Word for just a few minutes per day, my trust in him grew, and the Scripture began transforming my thinking.

Genesis is a woman of color who said, “Enough is enough,” and is now bolder than ever. She tried to remain quiet, but that didn’t work because no change occurred. Today, she is readapting to the current times and making some life-changing decisions. She is stepping outside of her comfort zone by speaking up, challenging the status quo, and refusing to let limitations placed on her keep her down. Genesis sees herself as a visionary and a woman who will go on to do great things that empower others to speak up for themselves. Yes, it may be hard; yes, it may hurt. In the long run, she desires to encourage others to help those who may not have a voice. She is a trailblazer who wants others to live out their dreams, goals, and visions. If it takes her writing this book to accomplish those tasks, then so be it. We all have been given a wonderful purpose in life. It is up to us to walk it out and live victoriously!

Mindset Academy make it possible to get the top mindset and career strategies no matter where you are located. Whether your desire is to go further in the corporate world, reinvent yourself in a new direction or launch a business that gives you the fulfillment that you crave, providing you the missing link to go from “wishing for change” to creating change is our unwavering promise to you! Top inspirational speaker and GRIT and resilience expert Meridith Alexander’s book that started it all! How the crushing blow from a random boulder taught this Mother/Daughter team not how to face death but how to choose to fully live. A journey of inspiration and discovery like no other. On February 19, 2016, Meridith’s youngest daughter Schuyler, a recent graduate from Yale, was crushed while traveling in Colombia, South America. The doctors weren’t sure that they could keep her alive long enough for Meridith to get down there. On that plane, Meridith realized that she had to make a decision. She could let those circumstances define her forever as “the mother of a child that was crushed by a boulder” — or she could dig deep within herself and become the reluctant hero that her daughter needed right then. Described as a “must-read if you want to become the best version of yourself”, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT became the #1 Hot New Release on Amazon in the motivational category the night that it was released. This book captures the actual posts that have inspired readers all around the world.

Dr. Ja’ net Bishop and Ariel Marin: Panel Discussion the Joy of Living Healthy
Dr. Bishop and Ariel Marin: Panel Discussion the Joy of Living Healthy sponsors www.tradeacademypro.com Veganism is a type of vegetarian diet that excludes meat, eggs, dairy products, and all other animal-derived ingredients. Many vegans also do not eat foods that are processed using animal products, such as refined white sugar and some wines. What Types of Vegetarian Are There? Vegan refers to either a person who follows this way of eating or to the diet itself. That is, the word vegan can be an adjective used to describe a food item, as in, "This curry is vegan", or, it can be used as a noun, as in, "Vegans like cookies, too." Beyond Just Food Although there is some debate as to whether certain foods, such as honey, fit into a vegan diet, if you are cooking for other vegans, it is best to err on the side of caution and avoid these foods or ask your guests. Most vegans extend the definition of veganism to go beyond just food. Vegans will also likely avoid the use of all personal and household products tested on animals and avoid purchasing and using all animal-derived, non-food products, such as leather, fur, and wool. There is some debate as to whether second-hand animal products, such as a leather jacket from a thrift store, can be included in a cruelty-free vegan lifestyle or not.

Natalie Vecchione: Host of “FASD Hope”
Natalie Vecchione: Host of “FASD Hope”
Natalie Vecchione is an FASD parent advocate, homeschooler, podcaster, but MOST importantly... a wife and mom! Natalie and her husband, John, adopted both our son and daughter via domestic adoption. They began homeschooling  7 years ago, when they noticed how many accommodations their son needed (who was later diagnosed with an FASD). Their son finally received an FASD diagnosis when he was 15, when he was also hospitalized for Bipolar Disorder...and it was one of the darkest times of her life as a mom. In those dark times, the Lord used her brokenness and filled her with the Holy Spirit to use her journey to become a parent advocate and help other families not to feel as alone as she had on her journey. Natalie began advocating for FASD by being a peer support mentor, co-facilitating a parent support group and she was selected to participate in the 2019 North Carolina Exceptional Parent Leadership Conference. She certified in Mental Health First Aid and she has also been a Board- Certified, Music Therapist for 25 years. Recently, Natalie volunteered as a board member and social media coordinator for several North Carolina nonprofits. In April  2020, Natalie began her new adventure in the world of podcasting through producing and hosting podcasts about FASD.... and she became a "Mom on a Mission with a Microphone".

Scott H. Silverman: The Opioid Epidemic
Scott H. Silverman: The Opioid Epidemic
Thirty-six years ago, Scott Silverman found himself at an open, 44th-story window, on the brink of suicide. Two decades of escalating substance abuse, blackouts and depression had brought him to this moment. Scott Silverman started Second Chance to help people in shelters, the homeless and inmates leaving prison. Just then, a colleague entered the room and asked him what he was doing. Silverman entered rehab the next day and has been sober ever since. Fast forward to 2008. Silverman has turned not only his own life around but also the lives of thousands of others. Rehab and volunteering brought him close to a community of others in need: people in shelters, those who were homeless, others who had come out of jail. They all shared one problem, Silverman saw: They were unable to find and keep a job. The vehicle for that assistance is his Second Chance program in San Diego, California. It provides job readiness training, housing for sober living, and mental health and employment support services for what Silverman calls a “difficult-to-serve” population. Started in 1993, Second Chance has provided services to more than 24,000 individuals. It helps graduates with job placement and follows up with them for two years. email: scott@withtoughlove.com Phone Number : (619) 993-2738 Website: http://www.withtoughlove.com/ Tedtalk:  https://jhu.fa7.myftpupload.com/tedx/ CNN Hero : https://jhu.fa7.myftpupload.com/cnn-hero/ Host: www.drajrbutler.com Sponsor by: www.tradeacademypro.com

Pastor Markus Watson: Book "Beyond Thingification: Helping Your Church Engage in God's Mission"
Ever since I was a kid, my dream had been to make it big in Hollywood. After college, in 1994, I got an internship working on the Clio Awards (an awards show for the best commercials) and a couple of music videos (including a Muppets music video!). Then I got more gigs on other TV shows. I thought my dream was coming true. But I learned something during those first couple of years working in Hollywood: If I was going to succeed in Hollywood, I would have to make Hollywood my number one priority in life. I just wasn’t ready to do that. I had developed a deep love for God through the college campus ministry I had been involved in. I wanted to stay involved in my church. But I could see that Hollywood was going to take more and more of my time and energy. So, I quit Hollywood. It was the hardest thing I’d ever done. It felt like I was throwing away a part of myself. That was in the summer of 1996.  In this episode I talk about my podcast and/or my book (Beyond Thingification: Helping Your Church Engage in God's Mission) and my experience of being falsely accused at my last church and finding transformation through that experience.

Sarah Geringer: Transforming Your Thought Life
Subscribe at https://anchor.fm/Momentsofgrace Do you know you can deepen your relationship with God through meditation? It’s one of the essential spiritual disciplines that can help you get more out of your Bible study and strengthen your faith. I began meditating on God’s Word when I bought a One Year Bible back in 2003. The editors of that edition put one verse in bold in each daily reading. I read the passage in the morning and spent a few minutes reflecting on the bold verse. It stuck with me throughout the day. God started using those bold verses to build a deeper relationship between he and I. I started understanding how God saw me, which was so different from how I saw myself. By focusing on a verse of his Word for just a few minutes per day, my trust in him grew, and the Scripture began transforming my thinking.

My name is Sherry Jones and I'm an inspirational speaker, best-selling author, and podcast host. Through my books, speaking, and podcast, I teach people how to speak life, love themselves, and impact the world so they can birth the greatness within. Speaking life is about activating your words to shape your life and the lives of those around you in a positive way. We are often our own worse critic, but speaking life will help us move beyond that and walk into our destiny. Self-love is very important. I was once a young girl with very low self-esteem, but now I love the person looking back at me in the mirror and I want you to do the same. Once you master speaking life and self-love, you can make a significant impact on the world around you. Someone is waiting for what you have to offer. My faith teaches me that there's a plan and purpose for each and every one of us. We all have greatness inside, we just need to birth it. I look forward to helping you make speaking life a lifestyle.

The Response: The Life of Jonathan Price (shooting in Wolfe City Texas)
The Response: The Life of Jonathan Price (shooting in Wolfe City Texas)
Shaun Lucas was identified as the North Texas officer who shot Jonathan Price, the man who reportedly tried to defuse a domestic dispute. In a statement detailing the shooting that killed Jonathan Price, Texas Rangers said Lucas responded to a disturbance call for a possible fight in progress. Lucas made contact with Price, who was reportedly involved in the disturbance. Lucas tried to detain Price, who investigators said resisted in a non-threatening posture and began to walk away. The officer deployed his Taser and then discharged his service weapon, hitting Price. Price was taken to a hospital, where he died. WOLFE CITY, Texas -- Texas Rangers decided to charge a Wolfe City police officer with murder after a 31-year-old man was stunned by a Taser and then shot to death. Officer Shaun Lucas was booked into the Hunt County Jail in North Texas, according to Texas Department of Public Safety. SPECIAL THANKS TO TESSA SPISAK AND CHRIS WAGES Jonathan Price quote “ You need to evolve into your purpose or you are wasting your air”  Words of thanks from Chris Wages  I want to thank you for what you do and having me on your podcast. This is the first time I have been able to carry a conversation about Jonathan since the horrific night that needed his life. It felt great to speak of him and contribute towards keeping his name in the forefront of people’s minds.  Please let me know if there’s anything else needed from me.  Per our conversation, attached is my headshot and domains for the companies he and I ran together.  BUFFSUPPS.COM PASSGOSOLUTIONS.ORG PODCAST WEBSITE: WWW.MOMENTSPOD.COM SPONSOR BY: WWW.TRADEACADEMYPRO.COM

William Walley my guest "World of Walley"
William Walley is 50 years old and Married for 29 years with 3 children, Youth Pastor for 25 years, Simple Man with Complex Hangups and in the middle of it all decided to create a podcast.  World of Walley  strives to provide top-notch, compelling content that appeals to all ages and backgrounds.  We do approach the podcast as a vehicle to deliver this information in a way that everyone, even the “common man or woman” feels that content speaks to them. I’m Deep-Fried, Double-Wide and most importantly Saved by the Grace of God.  I have had quite a bit of life experiences including working as a Correctional Officer, managing labor intensive contracts in the event/sports operations guest services industry, being a Youth Pastor for 25 years. I have witnessed a lot of “stuff” both as an observer and as a participant. I believe they call them “War Stories” or “Back of the Tour Bus” insights. I also have been afforded through my journeys the opportunity to meet some amazing people. My podcast is just an extension of me, raw and uncut with a little touch of Grace from God and Southern Charm. I would love the chance to talk to you. Be blessed Y’all.

A New Normal: Back to School 2020-2021
A New Normal: Back to School 2020-2021
Interview with Teachers Derrick Alison and Doris Holmes As teachers, we’re planners—it’s just who we are. But how do we plan when we don’t know what to plan for? During a recent professional development session with a local district, the number one question teachers asked me was what next year would look like. The truth is: We don’t know what’s coming our way. Even with glimpses of plans, no one really knows what’s coming. With so much outside our control, there are a few things teachers can do now. Set up your classroom to operate in all ways: face-to-face, remote, and blended (a combination of both). Know that you’re likely to use all these methods at some point next year. Remind yourself that you are resilient. Your students are resilient. Be confident that you can be present for your students no matter what. When you are intentional about building in flexible components from the start of the year, students’ experiences will be better. Using the guide below, take a first step toward planning for next year. Start with items that you can control. BUILD A COMMUNICATION PLAN Chances are that you experienced communication challenges at some point last year. Reflect on those challenges. Write out a plan: In stormy seas, your parents, students, and colleagues will look to you to guide the ship into harbor. Broadcast it: Your plan is a beacon. Remind students and parents how and when you will be communicating. Your plan should set the foundation for all other communication. Keep communication consistent: Follow through with your plan. Initially, this may involve extra work. However, as soon as something changes, you’ll be glad you made the effort. Consider alternatives to email: Text services like Remind limit characters and focus messaging. Also, texts are a lifeline for families who rely on mobile devices for access. ORGANIZE CONTENT Keep in mind that your online learning environment should support your face-to-face instruction—and your face-to-face instruction should support your online learning environment. When they complement each other, both are stronger. Guidelines for instruction: Organize content into chunks: units, modules, or weeks. Create structure inside these chunks. Keep the structure consistent. Include all elements of instruction inside a chunk (preassessment, inquiry, instruction, practice, assessment). Once your online content is organized, think about how you can combine your online chunks with your face-to-face instruction. In The Perfect Blend, Michele Eaton provides excellent daily and weekly checklists that work to keep students and teachers organized and bolster the learning in both spaces. CONSTANTLY EVALUATE YOUR TOOLBOX After completing a chunk, reflect on the digital tools you used. Ask yourself: Did I have the right tools for the task? Were students able to meet instructional objectives? www.drajrbutler@gmail.com

Twanja Windley
Twanja Windley
Twanja Windley Another Level-How to Change Your Mindset Changes Your Circumstance, has allowed me to become transparent about my quest to pursuing purpose while fighting for mental stability. A few years ago, I went through a very tough time and I struggled mentally; I shared my personal journey in a riveting account of moving through heartaches to find purpose and a profound meaning of life. The experiences I shared describes as I transitioned from youth to adulthood are relatable to a wide-ranging audience, and through times of significant angst, I began to trust God and sense His purpose in my life. Through God's grace, I've realized that I could take control of my mind and rewrite my story. It was time that I changed the trajectory by "speaking life" into each situation I encountered. I understand from a deeply personal perspective that each individual has the opportunity to trust God through life's difficulties and be transformed by His provision. Whether it is childhood pain bottled inside, bad relationships, being undervalued and unappreciated, or being overweight and depressed, I've spent my life fighting a spiritual battle within; and I was carrying the pain of life. I was covered in layers of shame, guilt, and disgust thinking no one could ever see it. I've learned that negative thoughts are in my head and when I let go of those negative thoughts and change my perspective something powerful started to take place. I started taking off layers of guilt, shame, and worthlessness and I saw a new me. In this book of short stories and inspiration, I shared the beginning of my painful outlook on life, but I managed to find my strength and with strength came passion. In Another Level, I discovered self-love, humility, and healing. I displayed my personal journey in a riveting account of moving through heartaches to find purpose and a profound meaning of life. Through my situations I've gained strength by trusting God. This book brings healing and it will allow readers to see that they don't have to stay in their current situation. I changed my life by changing my mindset. I can remember feeling like no one understood and that I was alone, but the truth is so many people are walking the walk and too ashamed to talk about it.

I’m born and raised in the British Columbia Kootenays now residing in Alberta, Canada. I am a mother of seven kids, two of whom are special needs and one is my stepson. I am a certified Health Care Aide and possess a diploma in Travel and Tourism. IBB: How did your book come about? Was it always your dream to write about parenting? Honestly no, I never thought I would write the stories I have. It came about after a knee injury that required surgery. My children literally took over the house and I was limited to what I could about it. So, my outlet became writing about all the mess parenting can be. A year later I required a second knee surgery, being stuck unable to do anything again I took it as a sign I had to share my words. IBB: You’ve got twenty words to tempt us to read your book. What would you say? Jessica Nielsen is a poet, writer & author, born and raised in the British Columbia Kootenay’s.

Dr. Richard Spillman Ph.D. Electrical and Computer Engineering Utah State University 1975 Retired 2013 Prof of Computer Science and Engineering Pacific Lutheran University Started The Kingdom is Near Ministries, 1997 We took people who, because of their background (former drug user/dealer, felon) would never get a chance to serve God in the mission field, overseas for a short term mission. Places we ministered: Philippines, South Korea, India, Mali, Uganda, Mozambique, … In 2014 my team was ministering in the jungles of the Philippines when ISIS discovered we were there and got hold of our cell phone numbers. For a week, they called us telling us to stop, turn over a pastor to them and leave the area or they would hunt us down. We took precautions but didn’t obey any of their commands. It was a scary time but one in which we all felt the protection of the Lord. When I got home I was moved to write my trilogy which plays out the conflict between good and evil on a world wide scale. I am writing a trilogy: The Awakened, The Ascension, and The Atonement (the first two books are done and published). SUMMARY The sudden emergence of a vicious international terrorist, a secret that lies hidden in a 2,000 year-old personal journal, two mysterious ancient societies locked in a never ending battle, mankind on the brink of destruction these and more are on a collision course. And Ricki Spenser a lonely woman teaching at a medium sized university holds the one key to everything. One of the ancient societies listed above is run by Lazarus (yes, that Lazarus) Hebrews says man only dies once so since Lazarus had already died he never died again and still lives among us working to bring out the best in mankind and to protect us from the forces of evil.

Author Kent Wyatt interview
What’s Talisa going to do? Janie and Teddy’s special needs don’t stop them from getting involved in the wildest events in Gilead county. It’s driving Talisa crazy. Or maybe she already took that trip when her father died. Either way, she’s got to settle Teddy down long enough to decipher the visions he’s having and discover how they connect with the woman who screamed in the night. If there was any way she could do it by herself, she would never get involved with Luke again. His bad guy catching capers were unique to say the least. The problem was, they worked. She had hoped he wouldn’t interfere with her potential relationship with the handsome psychiatrist next door, but that was like keeping a kid out of wet cement. Now, none of that matters. Janie and Teddy are missing, and if the psychiatrist is right, Talisa’s world just turned upside down. And the only person who can help her is the one man she can’t forgive. Humor and suspense collide as Talisa discovers how little she really knows about the people around her and herself.

Part 1 of Tales of a Child Soldier
Part 1 of Tales of a Child Soldier
Like many others in Australia who are concerned about the plight of refugees I was happy to read that the town of Toowoomba welcomed the very first family to arrive from Sudan with open arms. I could only imagine at the difficulty they had adjusting to life in Australia, but hoped they would find new peaceful lives here. But we have all come to learn that the scars and trauma from growing up in a war torn country can follow people to their new land, and some have difficulty coping with this. As Ayik Chut says himself in this interview, he was fine for the first year here and then things began to unravel for him as the horrors of his time as a child soldier in the Sudanese Army began to catch up with him. He covers a little in this interview of what transpired but the most amazing part of his story we didn’t get to in the interview- that of his career in film and TV! Ayik has worked alongside stars such as Chris Hemsworth and Idris Elba, and appeared in a number of TV series such as ‘Safe Harbour’ . He is now the father of two children and a proud Australian. You can purchase his book on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Lost-Boy-Tales-child-soldier-ebook/dp/B07Z76HQRP/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=the+lost+boy+Ayik+CHut+Deng&qid=1587957982&s=books&sr=1-1

Thomas Dotson Author of a Empty Chair
Thomas Dotson Author of a Empty Chair
Thomas Dotson Author of a Empty Chair The Empty Chair is my heartfelt story of learning to heal and trust the process of grief through the love of Christ. You'll find my story to be honest and sharing. I dug deep into my heart to express the emotions I have encountered while learning to live with grief. Through each loss I learned something about myself. Jesus took the opportunity to mold me into whom he wanted me to be. Learning to endure grief was part of His plan. Each of us will face tribulation in this life; each of us, at some point, will look across the room to find only the empty chair staring back at us. Learning how to replace the pain with joy and the void with happiness can only come through tribulations. The Empty Chair shares my journey with you and allows everyone to share in my experience. "Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord and whose hope is the Lord. For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green and will not be anxious in the year of drought nor will cease from yielding fruit" (Jer. 17:7-8). Thank you for investing your time and resources into my story.

The Word for Word Bible Comic
The Word for Word Bible Comic
Using a bold contemporary art style, the comic presents every word of the biblical gospel of Mark, within its historical, cultural and geographical context. This book has 180 pages. It employs a high view of scripture and the translation used is the World English Bible. It is part of the graphic novel series, The Word for Word Bible Comic. Aimed primarily at ages 15 -40. The Story Intro: After a brief time of liberty under the Hasmoneans, the people of Israel are once again under the boot of a foreign superpower. The Romans rule and tax every part of their world: water-tax, city-tax, road-tax, house-tax, even a tax on necessities like meat and salt. These fees were often 'harvested' by their own Jewish brothers, who would pay the oppressors and then skim off a little or a lot for themselves. For centuries, the Israelites have clung to the promise of a Messiah, one who would change everything. But this saviour is not what they'd thought he would be.

This is one show our younger listens need parental guidance.  Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age.  This is the national hot line number 1-888-373-7888

The Little Rock Nine was a group of nine African American students enrolled in Little Rock Central High School in 1957. Their enrollment was followed by the Little Rock Crisis, in which the students were initially prevented from entering the racially segregated school by Orval Faubus, the Governor of Arkansas. They then attended after the intervention of President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The HENDERSON’S share what it was to be African American is the height of the civil rights moment. Elder Henderson shared how as a little girl she drank out of a water fountain at Walgreens. How she was attacked. She and her elderly grandmother were thrown out. This is a must listen.

God's call is progressive ( we will be prepared when the time comes). * Deborah 5.
