Romney Family Joins Hollywood fad of Adopting Black Babies..Join us as we speak to an Adoptee Survior, Dockothy Davis! *Last week former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced that he had a new addition to his family.
Romney posted a picture on Twitter with the caption,“ Our 22nd grandchild was officially adopted today: Kieran James Romney.”
The picture was of an adorable African American baby who was adopted by one of his sons.
Now here’s where things get interesting. Apparently the name Kieran means “little dark one” in Gaelic. The name is pretty common in Ireland, which translates to “black” or “dark.”
Mitt Romney, AKA Mr. 1% , has a lot of grand kids but you think he would at least be able to keep count and keep up. He announced on Twitter that his 22nd grandchild, Kieran James Romney, was officially adopted. Um, one problem. Back in July, Mitt Romney, tweeted that he and his wife welcomed their 22nd grandchild. Which is it Mitt?
"People immediately started speculating about what type of life he’s going to have growing up with the Romneys, who are known for being severely out of touch when it comes to the poor and minority communities. We should say a serious prayer for our little Kieran.
Join us tonight on The Gist of Freedom as we talk with Dockothy Davis. Mr. Davis will discuss, growing up as a foster child and then living with a white family in an exclusive white town.

Eva Kroon Pike was chosen. She was a dream before she was ever held. At the tender age of ten weeks, Eva was adopted into a loving family that had been waiting and praying for eight years. "These circumstances nurtured Eva into the singer/songwriter she is today with an extraordinary spirit, a compassion for people, a passion to share the gospel, a heart for God, and an awesome voice," as Dr. Jay Dennis, Pastor, Church at the Mall, Lakeland, Florida states. Her vocals are powerful, yet engaging, versatile and unwavering, melodic and soul wrenching. Diversity describes Eva's music style from contemporary to choral, traditional to country, and southern gospel. Eva's life growing up in Central Florida has been influenced by the multiplicity of people which has led to an ability to relate her passions and convictions with soul.
"Grace That Chose Me", the title song of Eva's 2010 album, describes the essence of who she is and an ultimate thank-you to her parents for choosing her to be a part of their family over twenty-eight years ago. She co-wrote this album together with Don Koch, songwriter and producer from Nashville who continues to play a significant part in her music. Eva's album was released to radio in January 2011. In November of 2012 Eva released her very own Christmas single to radio titled “Christmas Revolution.” Eva's newest album titled Love Is All About You was released to radio February 2013. "As much as my first album, Grace That Chose Me, impacted my life and those who heard the message through song, this new album has had so much more of an impact on my life in just the short time I've had the songs and allowed others to hear them." Eva is very excited about 2014 and what God has planned for her ministry.

Reprise, Part 2 - "The Unceasing Campaign of The Master Seraphim" with Neal Waldrop and Charles Olivea. We'll follow Neal's lead through his remarkable study and continue with Part II of the study: History since Pentecost.
Among other questions we pondered: What strategies might the planetary government have adopted over the 35,000 years from Adam & Eve's default in order to reduce and, if possible, overcome interference by the rebellious planetary prince and his staff? How did the situation change after Pentecost? What additional resources became available? And what factors influence the timing and frequency of the personnel rotations of the master seraphim and their respective corps? The discussion ran deep as we explored the implications of all these questions.
Neal Waldrop encountered The Urantia Book in 1973 and read it cover to cover in just four weeks. He attended Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He had a distinguished career as a Foreign Service Officer employed by the U.S. Department of State. His service included postings in Geneva, Switzerland; Taipei, Taiwan; Hong Kong; Canberra, Australia; New York City; and Washington, D.C. Needless to say, Neal is deeply interested in the Master Seraphim who were sent by Jesus, shortly after his ascension, to oversee the restoration of God's plan on Earth. Neal has written an amazing study on the work of these Master Angels, portrayed in Paper 114 of The Urantia Book. His study goes in depth on their purpose, methods and goals.
We recommend that those who tune in and desire to get ahead on this detailed study do so by visiting the following link and downloading copies of Neal Waldrop’s study guide on this rich topic: http://www.globalendeavor.net/Documents/2011-03-22_MasterSeraphim.pdf
In days gone by, canaries were taken into the coalmines to warn of dangers to human health. Thus people with Environmental Sensitivities have adopted the term “canaries.”
This month, we will be meeting people who are experiencing Environmental Sensitivities to varying degrees. Find out how they became canaries, what they struggle with, what inspires them and how their lives have changed as a result. You may need a tissue, but prepare to feel a sense of pride in these stoic, inspiring and warm-hearted souls.

Amara Campbell has Late-Stage Neurological Lyme Disease – this is a bacterial infection from a tick bite. Once bitten, the bacteria grow inside the body, affecting various organs, as well as mimicking other health conditions. Most of Amara’s infections are in her heart and brain.
She also has a range of complex and intermingled co-infections and co-conditions, including multiple chemical sensitivities. Even the faintest waft of her triggers cause to experience seizures that also limit her breathing.
As you can imagine, her on-going medical costs are enormous.
