    Choosing You - Caring for the Caregiver - Part 2

    in Motivation

    On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.

    Ghosts of Children

    in Paranormal

    It has always amazed me how ghosts of children can exist. It seems as though they would be exempt from the prison of being earthbound after death, but apparently they're not. We will explore this very troubling reality on the next show.

    Shattered Lives: Children and Grieving

    in School

    When children are victims of a disaster, a school shooting, or perhaps the loss of a classmate or someone close to them, we, as parents, teachers, or mental health professionals need to know how best to assist their grieving process.


    As the media reports on school shootings, deaths of children, and tragedy beyond comprehension, one comforting thought is there are trained professionals ready to step in during and after the crisis to help children deal with the loss.   


    Returning Shattered Lives Radio guest, Dr. David Schonfeld is tops in the field of child bereavement and now heads the National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement (NCSCB) which "aims to help prepare professionals working in schools, health care settings, and other community sites to be better prepared to meet children’s needs during and after crisis and loss."

    There is so much to talk about when it comes to spirituality. Which ofcourse means that we reached out to expert Dr. Rosie Kuhn for a third time!  Luckily for all of us, she agreed to continue our conversation which we started with her multiple shows ago. This time she will help us address questions like:


    What is spirituality? 


    Why is this an important topic for parents, grandparents, and for all of us?


    What are some ways to clarify values for ourselves and our children?


    How can we be in the world in such a way that children will follow our lead, and cultivate within themselves spiritual values and competencies?

    HERE WE DISCUSS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM EVEN THE THINGS THAT WE CAN NOT SEE.  HOW IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO BE MINDFUL OF THE PEOPLE YOU HANG AROUND, THE THINGS YOU EXPOSE YOUR FAMILY TOO AND YOUR OWN MENTALITY WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS.  THERE ARE ENERGIES ON THE PLANET THAT ARE EVIL AND OPPORTUNISTIC AND DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE YOUNG.  IN FACT, MANY EVIL SPIRITS PREFER YOUNG SOULS.  WALK WITH ME AS WE TAKE A JOURNEY INTO THE REALM OF UNDERSTANDING OUR ROLE AS PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF OUR CHILDREN,

    Prayers for Children

    in Religion

    Teaching our children how to pray is a part o a vital foundation that will prove to be something they will be thankful or.


    Prayer must be taught to our children with a purpose.  Join us as we study the prayers of Paul, Jesus and others  in the  bible  and learn to use their words as a model for your own prayers.  We will personalize them for ourselves and for others and pray them for amazing results. We will also look at the prayers of King David in the book of Psalms. Andrew Murray says " True prayer, that takes hold of God's strength, that availeth much, to which the gates of heaven are really opened wide-who would not cry, 'Oh, for someone to teach me thus to pray'?" He concludes, "Jesus has opened a school, in which He trains His redeemed ones, who specially desire it, to have power in prayer."  Prepare to take your prayer life to the next level as we pray the word of God. Your prayer life will be transformed.  Tell a friend and join us for the discussion on prayer.
