    The Changing Face of Beauty - Real & Natural

    in Health

    The benefits of a broader, more inclusive definition of beauty--whether that means using fewer and cleaner cosmetics, loving your body as is, or letting your hair express its natural curl or color--extend far beyond one's own life. They affect families, communities, even the culture at large.  Self-acceptance often leads to accepting others more easily, too, and the world can always use more of that.


    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we discuss a few of the ways people have begun to redefine beauty -- and appreciate the natural beauty in each of us.


    Call into the studion with your questions and/or comments: 347-945-7433.


     


    Cosmetic surgery, injections and fillers, and similar invasive procedures are still popular, of course, but it's clear that clean, healthy, self-affirming beauty trends are gaining ground.

    Changing The Games People Play

    in Motivation

    Kathy talks with her guest, Motivtional Speaker, Ricky Kinartail (aka Coach Rick) about how he became a "Game Changer!" His purpose to motivate and move people to pursue the life they dream of.  Everybody has a dream of being something and living a great life.  Some people go in full pursuit of their dreams, expecting no handouts, just focusing and doing the work to get there. Then there are people who live to manipulate and strategize at the expense of others to get what they want. Yet they still don't have any goals or desire to elevate themselves to live a better life. Some people are purpose driven while others are just existing. The difference between the two is the way they think. Whether you are the culprit or the casualty, the predator or the prey, you are one decision away from "Changing The Game!"

    A Changing World Live With The Rayfords

    in Lifestyle

    In life, we go through so many things that could destroy us, if we let them. We don't have to let the negative experiences, define us. We look into the word to determine who we are, not by life's circumstances.


    If we dwell on the circumstances, we miss the many benefits that God has for us. Instead of complaining, let's praise Him. Instead of looking for someone to have a pity party with us, let's find some folks who know how to praise God in the midst of the storm and come out victorious.


    This is life--the reality that we live on a daily basis. Some days are better than others, but we should be able to praise God every day, no matter what life throws at us.


    For appetizers--just enough to get you stirred up and hungry for more, check out the books on Amazon. com, by searching for: Mary M. Hall-Rayford or click on this link: http://viewAuthor.at/maryglobal


    Don't forget to join us next week at the same time in the same place. Remember, God loves you and we do, too!

    Game Changing Moments

    in Self Help

    What if it is not too late to allow that game changing moment to contribute more to everything you are asking for in life and the future you would like to have?
