On this episode, we will interview Sherri VandenAkker and her sister, Krystyn White
Sherri is the creator of the film My Name Was Bette: The Life and Death of an Alcoholic. This stunning documentary offers a shocking yet moving look at women's alcoholism. The film chronicles the progression of the disease in Sherri and Krystyn's mother, Bette VandenAkker -- a nurse, wife, and mother -- who died in September, 2007. The film, which was also created by Josh WE Hays, employs interviews, family photographs, medical records and graphics, and court documents to provide a personal and detailed look at the physical, emotional, and mental toll of alcoholism. The film also also offers hope to those affected by the disease who seek to heal their pain and strained relationships.
On this show we will talk with Sherri and Krystyn about their personal journeys with their mother's alcoholism, as well as discuss what it was like to create the film. If you have ever loved someone who struggled with alcoholism, you understand the challenges of loving someone with this disease.

8:30 PM ET Patrick's Monday Night Review with Bette A. Stevens. PURE TRASH, The Short Story by Bette A. Stevens The year is 1955. If you grew up in the 1950s and the 1960s, you may be among those who like to recall those good old “Happy Days” of television fame. Even younger generations enjoy watching the old TV reruns to get a peek into what life was like back then. In this short story, Shawn and Willie Daniels are off on a Saturday adventure in search of trash to turn into treasure. It was going to be a great day. Shawn was sure of it. No school and no bullies to remind him that he’s not one of the crowd. This is a story about bullies and what it’s like to be bullied. It may redefine your definition of bullying. If you were a child who was thought of as “different” in some way, you know what bullying is about: torment, persecution, intimidation, to name a few of its descriptors. For Shawn and Willie, their difference was based upon the social status of the dysfunctional family and the alcoholism and abject poverty in which they grew up.
This inspirational tale of a Monarch butterfly and her meadowland friends is the second children's book written and illustrated by Bette A. Stevens.

Encouraged by her meadowland friends, MATILDA learns that if she tries long enough and hard enough, she can do anything that she really wants to do. AMAZING MATILDA will inspire readers and listeners alike, not only to follow their own dreams, but to encourage others to do the same!

God's purpose for your life is that you would become like His Son, Jesus Christ! Stop emulating others and trying to do what someone else is doing and surrender to God's plan for your life. His plan is is uniquely designed for you and much bigger than anything you could ever imagine and it can only be accomplished by total abandonment and trust in Him. No one has seen what God has prepared for those who love Him! Do you love Him enough to trust Him with your whole life? If yes, then do it! And let the real journey began! #BlessedAndBodacious---Dr. Paulette Stevens.
