    Free Range Parenting in Montgomery County

    in News

    Long before the Meitivs of Silver Spring clashed with Montgomery County over their young children’s walk home from a park, parents across the county were at odds with authorities over similar questions: How much supervision do our children need and when are they truly at risk? 


    The free range parenting movement has caused parents across the country to unite in similar fashion and protest what they consider the heavy hand of government creeping itself into how parents choose to responsibly parent their children. How much is too much government interference in parenting? How can authorities work with parents who adopt free range parenting? What conversations about free range parenting need to occur between families and the authorities? 


    On a new episode of A Miner Detail brought to you by the Change Montgomery County radio network, host Ryan Miner will dissect the free range parenting movement and facilitate a discussion about how parents choose to responsibly parent their children. 


    Listen LIVE on Wednesday, April 22 at 9:00 p.m. on BlogTalkRadio.com/AMinerDetail to a new episode of A Miner Detail!

    First Live Excerpt Reading of REDISCOVERING KIA By Hezekiah L. Montgomery

    in Christianity

    Join me Hezekiah L. Montgomery along with my Co-Host Nichelle Johnson as I do my first Excerpt readings from my first novel REDISCOVERING KIA.  We are in our last month of fundraising for REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY so I'm looking forward to doing something different since the book came out.  People have told me that they've enjoyed REDISCOVERING KIA.  So as part of our fundraising month I'm doing my first reading ever.  Am I little nervous, yes, but I know that I'm going to have some fun as well as I read, talk about the reading and have discussion as well.


    Rediscovering Kia was my testimony that God had me right down to be able to help others that may get caught up in sin and don't know how to get back on course to God.  As I  wrote there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, we and I mean us, you and me have to hold on and not give up and not worry about what others are thinking because we have a God who's waiting with His arms OPEN WIDE for us to return to Him and be a light for others.


    I will say that I enjoyed the last show with all of the support t that was there to discuss the book and how it's going to be an awesome play.  I'm totally siked right now with jus the thought of my first novel becoming a play.  So with that say, join me as I read, ignite your interest and plug you into supporting REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY.  And I'll see you at the Mirror...
