    Theme for June: Higher Love
    Program Title: Higher Love at the Movies! 
    “The truth is that love is always pouring forth upon us, but our belief that the purpose of relationships is to serve our needs as we define the often blocks receptions. Asking only, “What am I getting here?” is death to love because it puts all responsibility on the other person. Asking, “What lesson is there for me to receive here?,” however, is a mystical key that unlocks your own heart. And that is our greatest need—to experience the things that make us more loving and more lovable.”  
                                                                                                    ? Marianne Williamson, Enchanted Love (book) p.134
    Tonight, for the fifth and final broadcast supporting June’s theme of Higher Love, Jojopah will explore how Hollywood has provided “higher love” stories over the last 8 decades.  Reference will be made to the teachings of the previous broadcasts in June using 7 memorable films: Casablanca, An Affair to Remember, Dr. Zhivago, Return of the Jedi, Bagdad Café, The Lake House, and Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows-Pt.2.

    Ola Jackson on Raising a Child with Autism and Entrepreneurship

    in Moms and Family

    Ola Jackson is an accomplished business woman of 25 years who inspires me as I travel this journey of entrepreneurship. Ola is the founder of OWN (Onyx Woman Network) and NEW (Nurturing Evolving Women). She has earned numerous accolades including the 2012 Pittsburgh Black Media Federation Legacy Award, 2010 SBA Business Champion Award, Robert Morris Alumni of the year, 2009 Pittsburgh Courier Woman of Influence, 2006 National Society of Collegiate Scholars Award, 2003 The New Pittsburgh Courier Women of Influence Award and the 2002 Pittsburgh Women in Business Woman of Distinction Award.
    But perhaps what inspires me even more than her business savvy is her journey as a mother.
    Ola’s son was diagnosed with autisim at the age of 4 and during a time when the condition was rarely publicized, and resources weren’t as bountiful or accessible as they are today. Launching her own business allowed Ola to dedicate more time to meet his ever-changing needs. Please take a listen to my mom talk with this incredible woman!

  • CUTV News Radio spotlights Angela Jakubowski of Restorative Interventions

    in Family

    New Cumberland, PA – Living with addiction can place families under incredible stress. The entire family becomes absorbed by the problem as it slowly spins out of control. But there is help.
    Angela Jakubowski is the founder and lead interventionist for Restorative Interventions, a faith-based organization specializing in family recovery for drug and alcohol addiction. Restorative Interventions believes that through the resilience of the family and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the intervention process can guide families to effectively motivate a resistant loved one enter treatment. Through this process the family finds healing, freed from the bondage of addiction that has held them captive, often for generations.
    “We begin where the family and the client is ready and willing to begin,” says Angela. “My goal is to penetrate with truth and help the family communicate their hopes and desires and needs and get their loved one into treatment."
    According to Angela, the intervention utilized by Restorative Interventions is not an event like what you may have seen on A&E’s Intervention. Restorative Interventions employs an intervention model known as Arise, which is invitational only. An addicted loved one is invited to a family meeting where professionals have been brought in to facilitate the process.
    “People invited to this process are always taken aback by how the family has come together out of their love for the individual — often despite existing broken relationships within the family system,” says Angela. “They have to hear the message. There is an answer. There is hope.”
