    Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.
    While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow.  It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.
    Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.
    A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty

  • Talking About Kuhli Loaches With William T

    in Pets

    The Kuhli loach, also commonly known as Coolie loach, comes from the Tropical waters of Indonesia, Malaysia, Java and surrounding areas. The Kuhli Loach is eel shaped. Its body colorings are a kind of salmon-pink/yellow with dark brown to black stripes that half circles the body. The stomach is a sort of a whitish colour. The eyes on the Kuhli Loach are set in one of the stripes and therefore not easily seen. The mouth is set at a downward angle and with 3 pairs of bushy barbels adorning it; it looks like it has an obstinate little moustache. Its fins are translucent.

  • "PEDOPHILES in the BODY of CHRIST: PREYING on our YOUTH!"

    in Family

    There is overwhelming number of pastors being arrested, exposed and imprisoned because of the crime of pedophilia. Almost exclusively male, these men are exploiting our young people while the men in the congregation sit idly by with little or no objection. Why do we keep hiring these monsters to prey over our kids? Who is doing the background checks?
    Can they be redeemed? Yes. Can they preach or teach? NO!
    We are going to discuss this pervasive problem in the BOC and see "hear" what the Word of God says we should do to eliminate this problem!
     
     
     
     

  • Nancy Schluntz, Interfaith Minister and Animal Chaplain

    in Pets

    Nancy's practice is dedicated to helping animals and their people enrich their relationships, and to providing spiritual guidance for people experiencing transitions such as the deep grief of losing a loved animal companion. Nancy is a published writer, public speaker, and have many years’ experience in professional and volunteer service of humans and animals.
    Our culture often treats relationships with animals differently than it does relationships with humans. Actually, people sometimes feel more joy with the unconditional love of an animal friend, and more pain and grief over their loss, than they do with their human counterpart.
    Animals are complex beings with feelings, thoughts, needs, desires, and unique personalities. Animals have reasons for their presence in our lives, as well as their own purpose in life. Our animals teach, heal and help in many ways. They communicate with us all the time, but often we don’t understand. It’s up to us to figure out the message.
    Life’s journey takes each of us through many relationships and transitions, with animals, work, family, spirituality, and our inner selves. Each of these passages is a process. As an Interfaith Minister, I provide a compassionate grounded presence to help people and animals navigate the bumps in life’s path, using intuitive deep listening, meditation practice, animal Reiki, grief counseling, and listening for messages from nature.

  • Wendy Lincoln, founder of Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue

    in Pets

    We are a network of volunteers who do rabbit rescue, centered in Baton Rouge, LA, and serving LA, MS, and occasionally other states. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Our mission is to rescue & find loving homes for rabbits, as well as educate and serve our community so that all rabbits in our area live happy, healthy lives with their families.
    Our rabbits for adoption come from all walks of life. Often they are a child’s pet, and the young caretaker loses interest, sometimes for a new pet, or especially if a young bunny is purchased and it unknowingly becomes an “unruly teenager” a few months later. Others come from animal control, are found wandering neighborhoods after being “set free” by people who no longer wanted them, or even drop-offs at pet stores. A few months after Easter, we often receive entire "unexpected litters" from Easter Rabbits bought without prior research. However, Easter is definitely not the only time we receive rabbits.
    Sadly, few rabbits that become unwanted end up in rescue. Most often they are given away to another unprepared home, and the rabbit goes through the cycle again. Others are let loose, left to find palatable grasses, avoid dogs and cars, and suffer from mites, fleas, heat, and rain. Rabbits are not as common of a pet as a cat or dog, and are much less understood as a family pet. They are often picked up at a pet store, put in a cage, and no questions are asked. Others are raised as livestock, being left outdoors and not socialized, and sit all alone day after day. Neither situation makes a happy pet, or a happy family! This is where our education mission comes in.

About Family

Like the TV show, modern families come in all shapes and sizes. Many children are a product of divorce, are in touch with both their biological and adopted parents, have two moms or two dads (or both), or are being raised by their grandparents. No matter how atypical the face of today's family, the values stay the same: love and support. Moms and dads will find plenty of support in BlogTalkRadio's parenting shows, especially those about time-management topics that fit both stay-at-home and working parents: organizing kids' activity schedules, decluttering, reducing the workweek, managing stress, making quick meals and more. We've also got shows about friendship – you know, your family of choice rather than family of origin. Just remember: everyone's family seems dysfunctional in its own way. And family may irritate you, but more often than not, you can always count on family to pick you up from the airport.
