The Friendship Principle
Everyone wants friends, but do we truly understand what it means to be an authentic friend? What are some spiritual characteristics that comes with being a friend? This episode of The Lydia Leader Project will focus on the Friendship Principle - in this day and time, having and being a true friend is not only good for the soul, but it pleases God as well. I’ll discuss the fundamentals of friendship and how to be a great friend.  This episode is dedicated in loving memory of one of my best friends, Bobbylou Edna Kelley - 10/29/1949 - 1/15/2022. She was definitely a Lydia, a Proverbs 31 and Titus 2 woman. She was someone who emulated the Godly characteristics of true friendship and sisterhood.

Women, Come Together
In light of recent events over the last several days regarding the release of Bill Cosby from prison as he was serving a 3-10 year sentence for sexual assault and rape, there have been comments on both sides either agreeing or disagreeing with his release. The comments have been disparaging and disheartening to read, especially when it comes to blaming and shaming the victims. It is important as women that we learn how to come together and exercise support, empathy and sensitivity to each other, even if there may be a difference of opinion. This episode is a special one that deviates briefly from our normal platform and subject matter. The views and opinions shared are personal. This is in no way giving any sort of legal or spiritual advice to anyone who's been a victim of any sort of Sexual Assault, Rape or other forms of abuse. If you have been in a situation of such, it is advised that you contact your local law enforcement agency. For more information about crimes against women, the following resources are recommended: National Sexual Assault Hotline: 1-800-656-4673 Cleveland Rape Crisis Center: 216-619-6194 Ohio Sexual Violence Helpline: 1-844-644-6435
