    Why is food so important to recovery? ( Also does the alcohol really cook out?)

    in Self Help

    This is one of the most controversial issues in recovery, what to eat.  I cannot tell you how many people will argue one way or another about whether alcohol cooks out of the food or not.  Another point of controversy is do certain foods cause triggers? ( like avocados and raisins).  We will be talking about foods and how we can use foods to strengthen both our recovery and our health.


    Join me at 3:30 PM PST on blogtalkradio.com.  I am excited to talk about this and any other recovery question you may have.  You can email your questions at buildingblocksofrecovery@gmail.com and I will answer them on the show.


    Until next week, Namaste.

    A Time to Honor Those who served, and gave their all!

    in Christianity

    Like many of you, several members of our family have served in the United States Military.  We have family that have served as Firemen, Police Officers, and other emergency services.  We honor all of you today with this show!   We understand that the call of duty affects those that serve and their friends and family.  Today is the 147th year our nation has honored those that gave the ultimate sacrifice of laying down their life in service to another!  Here at your place, we have given honor by sharing stories of our brave men and women who have recieved the highest honors for service above and beyond the call of duty.  We shared with you a two part story with my son and his wife on his service in Iraq.  My son returned from Iraq with PTSD (Post Tramatic Stress Disorder) and TBI (Tramatic Brain Injury).  They were very open with how this effected them. I remember the nights we had soldiers call from Iraq letting us know they enjoyed this show! I remember the fear in one man's  voice as he asked us to pray for his unit.  We hope to honor them tonight with this show. The last thing we want is to stir up your emotions and then you do not feel a call to personally honor these brave men and women.  Pease remember to take time today to pray for the families and friends of our brave fallen men and women.  Then in your own way, show thanks for their service.  We are shairing a program with you that is helping our wounded vets. It's called "The Wounded Warrior Project".  http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/   You can go to their web site to find what they do. For less than most of us pay for a good meal you can provide monthly support for this program that aids your returning injured warriors.  Is your grattitude worth less then $20 a month? Please, check out this great program!

    Roger Whitney, Judy Reeves, Consultant Brooke Lively explains your numbers

    in Business

This allowed him to witness first-hand the rise and fall of the “new economy” and the Dot-com bubble that ended in 2000.

In 2003 he left, at the time, the largest private bank in the world and, with two wonderful partners, established WWK Wealth Advisors


    Judy Reeves writer, teacher, and writing practice provocateur who has written four books on writing, including the award-winning A Writer’s Book of Days.

    Singer, Songwriter Montrel Richardson Chats With Petula Beckles

    in Music

    Montrel is an anointed singer and songwriter. His gift has been allowing him to touch many people's lives since the age of 6. Self taught, Montrel knew that God had a plan for his life. He was meant to inspire a spiritual release in not only the saints, but sinners as well. Montrel firmly believes that God wants his people to go higher.


    A North Carolina Native, Montrel has had the opportunity to open up for artist such as Tye Tribbett, Israel and New Breed, and Martha Munizzi. He has also performed back up at local concerts for Marvin Sapp and Darwin Hobbs.


    After serving four years on active duty in the Army, and meeting his wife Natalie, God blessed them to have a son whom they named D'montre. Montrel served as the praise and worship leader for three and a half years at Beyond the Veil Ministry in Killeen, TX, under the leadership of Pastor Rodney Howell Sr. During this time, Montrel was also one of the lead singers for a quartet group, The Divine Messengers.


    Feeling as God was leading him back home to North Carolina, Montrel and his family relocated to pursue his musical endeavors. Now he is currently serving on the praise and worship team at his childhood church, Faith Tabernacle Christian Center, under the leadership of Pastor Earl and Denise Goings.


    Montrel is the founder and CEO of Trelblazer Productions and Studio LLC, which he started in 2014. He is an independent artist and he also engineers his own music. And he is our special guest in tonight's show. Join Us!

    The Porch - The Pentecost Protocol Part 9

    in Spirituality

    The Gifts of The Spirit - we pick up where we left off on the ongoing nature of Pentecost and the vibrant presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.  Tonight we talk about the gifts the Spirit provides for us to do what we need to do in service to the Kingdom of God while living in a fallen world.


    Getting back to basics by examining the Word of God and, especially, the Book of Acts Church, The Porch Online Bible Study is taking a deeper look into how the early church served the Lord.


    Our desire is to find and restore the priesthood of the Believer and the world shaking influence the Early Church had. By delving deeper into scripture, we will find the Church the Lord intended and not the one man created.


    The Church Age is not over and, therefore, what took place in the Upper Room is as much for now as it was on the Day of Pentecost. If you know that there is more to your spiritual walk with Yeshua/Jesus and you want more then you are welcome to join us on this journey as we get back to basics!


    The Porch is an outreach of Solomon's Porch Inc. http://www.onsolomonsporch.org.  If you have any questions please visit the site and use the comment button.
