BOOMERS are poised to live healthier and longer than their predecessors and are putting off retirement. But while the job market can be tough to crack regardless of age, older appplicants face extra challenges ranging from age discrimination to being overqualified.

Today is the 22nd annual National Senior Health and Fitness Day.and the theme for this year's activities is, "If you keep moving, you'll keep improviing."
That's a theme that's been consistant with this show from when we started here on Blog Talk Radio seven years ago. It's always been my major goal to provide encouragement to boomers and above to stay active or to get active if for some reason you haven't been in a while. There are so many things you can do and new ones coming along all the time.
Just last month we had a National Masters Swim competition here in San Antonio. As a volunteer with the San Antonio Sports Foundation I took part in the event and it was so encouraging to see things like one heat between three men that were all in their ninties. What have you got planned for your 90's?
On today's show I'll give you an overview of activities and how to get started. If you've got a question, the listener line 347-934-0549 is available and I'll do my best to help you.
This is the last week in our Mother's Day series and waht a way to end! Raising children is hard work in this day and age. You have so many 'experts' saying, 'let your children be free', 'let them express themselves', and 'let them make their own decisions'. But God has outlined a very detailed way in raising children that includes being obedient to your parents and involves dscipline and boundaries. Join us tonight as our teacher, Deaconess Tasha Owens teaches us how to raise children God's way. Grab your Bible and ready your questions! Talk to you soon!
Let the children tell you how they see the current events in this world in which we live~
The challenge facing all of us is to rise above the things that have kept us divided in the past, by focusing us on the agenda of creating a better future for our people to see how all of us, with all of our varied differences, can come together and direct our energy, not at each other, but at the condition of the reality of the suffering of our people, that we might use all of our skills, gifts and talents to create a better world for ourselves, our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. It is time for us to stop thinking and acting solely on behalf of our churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and organizations. It is time for us as leaders to come together and begin to think, plan, and act on behalf of the whole of our people. We must put an end to the Mischief and the Mischief Maker!
There is so much to talk about when it comes to spirituality. Which ofcourse means that we reached out to expert Dr. Rosie Kuhn for a third time! Luckily for all of us, she agreed to continue our conversation which we started with her multiple shows ago. This time she will help us address questions like:
What is spirituality?
Why is this an important topic for parents, grandparents, and for all of us?
What are some ways to clarify values for ourselves and our children?
How can we be in the world in such a way that children will follow our lead, and cultivate within themselves spiritual values and competencies?

It's All For the Children
Children are the inheritance of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. Please consider the enormous responsibility involved in raising children in righteousness. There is no greater task required of man than to lead children in the right path and provide everything necessary for their growth and protection. God requires parents to raise their children in the fear of God and to protect them from all harm. But what are people to do when the culture and society is making room for things that debase and demoralize people? The present generations are witnessing terrible crimes and abuses of children and this is the rotting of the whole of society.
There will be no call-ins until the last 15 minutes of the show. Visit itccs.org
What issues should families consider when adopting or fostering a child that may have been sexually abused? What are warning signs of past sexual abuse? How can these children be helped while not endangering children already in the home.
Host Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family, the national infertility & adoption education and support organization, interviews Dr. Jennifer Shaw, a clinical psychologist at the Gil Institute for Trauma Recovery and Education in Fairfax, Virginia. Dr. Shaw specializes in play therapy and therapy with children and teens who have experienced early trauma, including sexual abuse.

The facts of life are that we are all getting "older" and that includes our companimals (companion animals.) Some of us are buying into beliefs of what to expect with aging animals. Yet there is a way to reverse those beliefs and help our companimals avoid some "aging" pitfalls that we thought were unavoidable.
Are you worried about how to care for them and what may develop? Maybe you've been told that because your cat, dog, horse, etc., is "older" that you should expect certain issues. What if that doesn't have to be true?
Join Susanne Peach, Animaleze® founder, as she discusses her groundbreaking work in helping animals live longer, happier, healthier lives. She'll share success stories and offer suggestions and ideas that can change how we look at "aging" animals. She has an almost 14-year-old Australian Shepherd mix dog who's been helping her become a pioneer in living and working with more "mature" animals.
Susanne wants you to be a pioneer, as well. Changing how everyone views "mature" animals, breaking all limitations, and preconceived notions of what's expected when your hamster, llama, parrot, etc., reach a certain age.
If you have a younger companimal, tune in as you'll hear tips to help them, too.
(Some of the animals pictured here are 15 and 16.)
Susanne is also going to be announcing some big news on some upcoming, first-time-ever events catered to you, the animal lover.
