Special Guest Interview with Teresa Guffanti
Teresa Guffanti is a child of the Most High God. Teresa was born and raised in South Florida; however, she now resides in Dallas Texas, where she currently is the Host and Author of Struggling Blessed but Not Alone Podcast and blog. Theresa’s life has been a struggle in every way and in every decade. No matter the struggles of life. Teresa has a Can-Do Attitude living on the bible verse that states You can do all things with Christ who strengthens you. Philippians 4:13. At the age of 11 she was diagnosed with a child’s form of Macular degeneration called Stargardt’s. People in her life may not have believed in her but that did not stop her. For she knew God created her for a greater purpose. Therefore, she had determined at a young age She would do great things and make a difference in this world. Teresa may be almost totally blind, but her vision loss does not define her. It has taught her how to reinvent herself as her life changes. At the age of 14, while attending school, she embarked upon a career path, filling her life with a variety of jobs, from a general worker to having various leadership roles such as Team leader, supervisor, office manager-Store Manager, customer service rep and manager, business owner and partner. She has also found time to engage her life with many community services, holding leadership roles such as president, director, general adviser and committee adviser in these activities. Teresa has always found time to help change the lives of others and support causes she holds dear to her heart. Teresa graduated high school and received her childcare certificate in 1989. She earned her personal training certification in 1998. This path of education was not a straight shot like most people have. Years later, God gave her an Opportunity to go back to school and show the world she is able to do All Things with God on her side. In 2008 she earned her AA degree at Broward Community college with honors, and received her bachelor’s degree in accounting at Florida Atlantic University in 2012.  Throughout her life, she had to find places to help her learn how to navigate her life changing eye disease. She received training in the areas of Cane travel, braille, assistive technology and independent living. Her thirst for knowledge has inspired her to pursue her master’s degree in seminary and motivational speaking, Teresa Has started a Focus Group called Sharing Insights To better help her low vision and blind peers. She is working on writing her life story, showing The WORLD that GOD LIVES IN AND THROUGH HER Romans 8:28. Quote by Teresa “Having faith in the lord is more powerful than wishing on a star!” Connect with Teresa at the following links: Website for her blog www.Teresa-blessings.blog focus Group called Sharing Insights.

The Spirit of Creativity Audiobook Launch Party with Special Guests Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson
Please sit back, relax and enjoy my engaging conversation with my audiobook narrator Lillian Yves and her collaborative partner Vincent Lee Grayson. Half of the podcast is my interview with my guests, and the second half is the audiobook launch party itself. The narrator bios are as follows: LEEANNE ROWE/ LILLIAN YVES  Originally from Oklahoma, and a graduate of AMDA in NYC, LeeAnne eventually made her way to SoCal. She likes to say she is from the East, West, and somewhere in the middle. She is a #1 best selling narrator on Amazon, an after school Drama teacher for the LAUSD and has been performing around California for over 15 years. She is a published author, co-writing novels under the name LeeAnne Hansen and a children's book, All Things I can do under Lilly Rowe. GRAYDON SCHLICHTER/VINCENT LEE GRAYSON  Graydon boldly declared at the age of five that he would "make Books on Tape" someday.  Five year old Graydon would be very pleased to see that grown up(ish) Graydon has made good on the vow.  Partnering with Lilly might be a bit more distressing to the lad since the younger version knew for a fact that "girls have cooties!" Still, a sacrifice worth making in the name of art! Although a stage actor and sound designer, for now those passions are on hold, all the better to focus on audiobooks.

Special Guest Interview with Sue Parisher
Today’s interview was recorded in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness month. Read on to learn more about my special guest. LTC (Ret.) Sue Parisher served twenty-one honorable years on active duty, living a double life of capability and accomplishment in the service while enduring brutality and abusiveness in her twenty-year oppressive marriage. The constant need to relocate due to Army orders every few years definitely contributed to her abuser’s ability to weaken her defenses against him. The atmosphere of military masculinity of the time and her daughter’s diagnosis of leukemia continually added gasoline to the horrors of her world. Today, Sue is happily married to a wonderful Christian man whose children and family have overwhelmingly welcomed her into their world. She has three unbelievable children who have been her inspiration and motivation during all these trying times. Her daughter’s cancer has been in remission for 15 years. Sue’s book is entitled Rock Bottom and Faithless: Defeating the Lies of Domestic Abuse with God’s Truth Purchase link: https://www.amazon.com/Rock-Bottom-Faithless-Defeating-Domesticebook/dp/B07W4X7WXP/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3MWTURH7OZ4B7&dchild=1&keywords=rock+b ottom+and+faithless&qid=1593359606&sprefix=rock+bottom+and+faith%2Caps%2C186&sr=8 -2 Connect with Sue at the following links: https://www.recoveringfromdomesticviolence.com/ https://www.facebook.com/SueParisherAuthor/ To subscribe to my newsletter and receive a free short story, please fill out my google form at: https://forms.gle/x8gtvDgqH56Zc3bt9 My poetry book entitled The Spirit of Creativity: Inspirational Poems for the Creative at heart can be purchased in a variety of eBook formats wherever books are sold.

Special Guest Interview with Ellwyn Autumn
Ellwyn Autumn is an American author/blogger and a certified teacher with a Master's Degree in Education. She writes children's picture books, middle-grade novels, and Young Adult fiction. Ellwyn's first self-published novel, Chris Kringle's Cops The First Mission, was a Finalist in the 2016 Reader's Favorite International Book Contest. Her Kamyla Chung picture book series addresses difficult issues facing young children. Kamyla Chung and the Classroom Bully is on Jedlie's Certified Great Reads List, earned Story Monster Approval as well as Mom’s Choice Awards Gold Medal. Ellwyn discovered her passion for writing in second grade when she had to write a book report for school. She was so excited to write the report, until her mother told her that she had to write about someone else's book and not her own story. Ellwyn became indignant and decided that once she finished the book report, she would most certainly write her own original story. She has been writing ever since! Ellwyn lives with her family in Pennsylvania. She loves all things magical, curling up with a good book, writing stories, and almost anything with chocolate in it. You can purchase her latest book entitled Teddy Bear Tea at: https://www.amazon.com/Teddy-Bear-Tea-Ellwyn-Autumn-ebook/dp/B08HKF2XFB/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1599827365&sr=8-1 Connect with Ellwyn at the following links: https://www.ellwynautumn.com/ https://www.facebook.com/ellwynautumnauthor/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRBbmeghJYUgldeJmal4TkA?view_as=subscriber https://www.instagram.com/ellwynautumn/ To subscribe to my newsletter and receive a free short story, please fill out my google form at: https://forms.gle/x8gtvDgqH56Zc3bt9 My poetry book entitled The Spirit of Creativity: Inspirational Poems for the Creative at heart can be purchased in a variety of eBook formats wherever books are sold.

To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is intent on seeing Penelope fired, especially if she insists on being seen with Tucker Westbrook. Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his friendship with Penelope, who has been by his side since childhood. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot--and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South. To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a 150-year-old lost treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job--and falling helplessly in love.

Special Guest Interview with Suzanne Woods Fisher
Carol award winner Suzanne Woods Fisher writes stories that take you to places you’ve never visited—one with characters that seem like old friends. But most of all, her books give you something to think about long after you’ve finished reading it. With over one million copies of her books sold worldwide, Suzanne is the best-selling author of more than thirty books, ranging from non-fiction books, to children’s books, to novels. She lives with her very big family in northern California. Suzanne’s new book is entitled: On a Coastal Breeze (book 2 of ‘Three Sisters Island’ series) Description: For Madison Grayson, life is good. Newly licensed as a marriage and family therapist, she can’t wait to start her practice. Despite the unfortunate shortage of eligible bachelors on the island—they’re all too young, too old, or too weird—Maddie feels like she’s finally found her sweet spot. Not even one panic attack in the last year. Not one. And then Ricky O’Shea drops in. Literally. Floating down from the pure blue sky, the one man in the world she hoped never to see again—the one who’d been her archnemesis from kindergarten through her senior dance—parachutes into town, landing on Boon dock, canopy draping behind him like a superhero. Ricky O’Shea. Now Pastor Rick, the new minister on Three Sisters Island. Time to panic.

Bethany Turner is the award-winning author of The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck and Wooing Cadie McCaffrey and the director of administration for Rock Springs Church in Southwest Colorado. A former bank executive and a three-time cancer survivor (all before she turned 35), Bethany knows that when God has plans for your life, it doesn't matter what anyone else has to say.

When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum and is sent packing, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public's good graces is to work alongside Hadley. As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love.
