    in Christianity

    Greetings to all God's people thank you for your support and prayers of this broadcast I usually do not come to you in the afternoon but today I have a special guest in the studio Nicole Jennings the CEO of PoshMommy an online boutique featuring gently-used designer wear donated by the wives and significant others of pro athletes, is kicking off its one-year anniversary during Super Bowl weekend with Celebrate in Style, a VIP shopping experience benefiting Face in the Mirror at the Montelucia Resort & Spa on Friday, January 30, from 4 - 6 p.m.  Celebrities and NFL players will be in attendance, including DJ Fluker of the San Diego Chargers, Geoff Schwartz of the New York Giants and Greg Jennings of the Minnesota Vikings.


    “It’s only fitting we’re celebrating one year of The Posh Mommy on such a grand scale before the Super Bowl,” said CEO and owner Nicole Jennings.  “Celebrate in Style" Face in the Mirror is a non-profit that pampers cancer patients with relaxing facials and massages during their hospital stays.  During the month of January, a portion of The Posh Mommy’s sales will be donated to Face in the Mirror.


    “Our founding mission is to emphasize the impact influential women can make by donating attire often pushed to the side in their closets,” Jennings said.  “The Posh Mommy unites women from all walks of life. This is the place where real women share their real fashion at reasonable prices while making a difference for charities like "Face in the Mirror."

    Cancer in Families - Lynch Syndrome

    in Health

    Joyce and Mike speak with Georgia Hurst as part of Lynch Syndrome Awareness Week.


    Georgia Hurst is a patient advocate for those with Lynch syndrome. She is the founder of the website and blog: <a href="http://ihavelynchsyndrome.com">ihavelynchsyndrome.com</a>. She frequently writes about the emotional aspects of having Lynch syndrome, and writes for various websites and journals in order to create awareness amongst the global medical community about this hereditary cancer syndrome. Georgia is a wife and mother, and loves espresso, books, and being bossed around by her adorable dog named Sid.


    What is Lynch syndrome?  We will learn more from Georgia, or you can read about it on her website, or in this article from <a href="http://http://www.curetoday.com/community/georgia-hurst/2015/02/i-have-lynch-syndrome">www.curetoday.com</a>


    Georgia noticed that there were several people in her family who had cancer at early ages, and several with the same cancer.  This can indicate that there is something genetic predisposing family members to cancer.  She delved deeper, got to a diagnosis, and kept asking questions, finding out how to protect herself and others in her family from the worst consequences of this condition.


    Hear her remarkable story, the path she followed in doing her own research, and the partnerships she has developed with medical professionals to help her make progress for herself and others.

    Challenging Kidney Cancer

    in Health

    Mike Lawing and Andy Derr have been living with kidney cancer for years.  Both of them have learned not to knuckle under to a difficult diagnosis, but to challenge themselves to live WITH it, maintain their quality of life, and keep the nastiest effects of cancer at bay.


    It's not easy.  But today there are better tools for challenging kidney cancer than ever before.  Working closely with their doctors, they have discovered strategies -- medical, mental, and spiritual -- that have helped them keep their heads high and their spirits strong and at the same time keeping cancer in the background of their lives.


    Mike, Andy, and Joyce all attended the Kidney Cancer Symposium sponsored by the Kidney Cancer association in October 2014, and prepared a report in patient-approachable language to share with other patients and their families the amazing progress reported at the symposium.  Mike did the bulk of the work -- the concept, the layout, and pictures, the editing -- and Andy and Joyce contributed articles.

    Choose your weapon: Social Advocacy vs Economic Empowerment

    in Lifestyle

    On this episode of Life Full Circle Radio, we will discuss the overall methods of change. Is it best to use social advocacy, economic empowerment or both.


    We've have just came out of Black History Month and the commmeration of #Selma50. At the same time we have the issues of the #SAE racist rants, another #Ferguson shooting and The killing of #TonyRobinson in Madison, WI. Our country seems to be a powder keg right now, with a short fuse. All this is going on while our economy is rebounding. Most of America is simply watching this unrest like a movie on TV, instead of it being many peoples lives.


    We will talk about this convergance of Social Advocacy and Economic Empowerment with Anthony Butler from the E3 Business Group.
