Ladies & Gentlemen get ready for a "Blessed Encounter" with our guest Ms. Janell Freeman CEO of Blessed Encounters. I promise that you will be inspired and empowered as you hear some of her story on this episode of In Life Now Radio!
"Janell has overcome many obstacles in her life including teenage pregnancy, homelessness, physical, emotional and sexual abuse, as well as serious bouts of depression and anxiety. Her mother was addicted to drugs until her adult years and her father was never a part of her life. These circumstances left Janell with very low self-esteem, which affected her decisions making abilities. That was until one of her most memorable Blessed Encounters occurred in 1996. She was pregnant and homeless, when group of strong, educated and loving Christian women, who founded a non-profit organization for young single mothers, took her under their wings. They opened their hearts and homes to her. They showed her so much unconditional love that it frightened her. She couldn’t understand how complete strangers could be so kind and shower her with so much love, support and encouragement. She believes that her encounter with these women was divinely orchestrated. They exposed her to a better way of living and loving. She has always been passionate about helping others, but these women’s benevolence ignited an even greater degree of passion in her that still burns deeply today."

DELPHINE LA LAURIE (1775 – 1842) was a sadistic socialite who lived in New Orleans. Her home was a chamber of horrors.
On April 10, 1834 a fire broke out in the mansion’s kitchen, and firefighters found two slaves chained to the stove. They appeared to have started the fire themselves, in order to attract attention. The firefighters were lead by other slaves to the attic, where the real surprise was. Over a dozen disfigured and maimed slaves were manacled to the walls or floors. Several had been the subjects of gruesome medical experiments.
Margaret Sanger aligned herself with the eugenicists whose ideology prevailed in the early 20th century. Eugenicists strongly espoused racial supremacy and “purity,” particularly of the “Aryan” race. Eugenicists hoped to purify the bloodlines and improve the race by encouraging the “fit” to reproduce and the “unfit” to restrict their reproduction. They sought to contain the “inferior” races through segregation, sterilization, birth control and abortion.
Sanger embraced Malthusian eugenics. Thomas Robert Malthus, a 19th-century cleric and professor of political economy, believed a population time bomb threatened the existence of the human race.2 He viewed social problems such as poverty, deprivation and hunger as evidence of this “population crisis.” According to writer George Grant, Malthus condemned charities and other forms of benevolence, because he believed they only exacerbated the problems. His answer was to restrict population growth of certain groups of people.3 His theories of population growth and economic stability became the basis for national and international social policy. Grant quotes from Malthus' magnum opus, An Essay on the Principle of Population, published in six editions from 1798 to 1826:
