SORT BY Relevancy
I recently spoke with Crystal Victoria who wrote From the Streets to the Skies No Limits - Diary of a Boss Lady to tell her story of straying from the straight and narrow at tender age of 14 and finding herself incarcerated several times totaling 19 months behind bars.Crystal was driving at age 14, had access to her mother's car after she dropped her off at work and other young people were attracted to Crystal for this independence and she enjoyed the popularity. Crystal's mother worked from 4pm to midnight during the week so Crystal had much freedom. Because her grades were good, her mother did not question her activities often. Having so much freedom resulting in Crystal regarding her mother as an equal who could not correct her. With this attitude, a confrontation resulted in the police being called and Crystal being transferred to juvenile detention. She was charged with Marijuana possession, drug paraphernalia, and tobacco as a minor at age 14.
In the state of Texas, a teen can get a driving license at age 15, but the drug charge that Crystal caused her license to be automatically suspended. But this did not stop Crystal from driving the family car. She drove her car with a suspended license; at 17, she charged as an adult for driving with a suspended license.
Crystal describes herself as angry and mean during her teen years and this attitude resulted in her being incarcerated. She states that she was attracted to the wild side. She had several probations that compounded resulting in her spending 19 months in prison; her last incarceration was in 2009. Crystal states that she learned her manipulative ways from watching “I Love Lucy”. Lucille Ball was always “getting away” with things and that behavior influenced Crystal to emulate it.
There is a need for discipline early in a child's life to ensure good communication in teens.
There is a real consequence of rebellion. It is the slow, yet real spiritual death that is running rampant in the body of Christ. Find out why it happens and how to avoid it!

Is the jobless rate in American "inner city" neighborhoods a result of a "tailspin of culture," as Paul Ryan put it, or is it the consequences of a confluence of external, historical, policy and societal factors?
Is President Obama tranforming his Executive authority into imperial rule and extending the reach of the federal government beyond its Constitutional limits with the passing the ACA? Is he lawless for not fully implementing all of the ACA at the same time? Was President Roosevelt a lawless imperialist when the Social Security Act was passed and implemented?
This is what we've been talking about over dinner this week. Pull up a chair and join in!
In his return appearance to Shattered Lives Radio, David LaBahn will be talking about gangs and gang prosecution.
The Criminal Resource Manual states: Federal assistance in prosecuting traditionally state-prosecuted crimes is needed in many states where penitentiary sentences result in minimal time served by defendants. This pathetic situation has resulted in an almost total absence of deterrence as a result of criminal sentences. As a consequence, some repeat offenders have no fear of punishment. Gangs exemplify this type of contempt of the criminal system.

Why can’t I just find a gentlemen?”
Just cruise Facebook in your late 30s to see prime examples of this. I can sit here daily and read self-righteous, borderline preposterous posts by females I have known for years to just bounce from men to men without consequence or regard for the guys they called boyfriends, or in some cases husbands. Chicks I've witnessed take on three dudes in a hot tub now throwing up pictures of their baby and poor husband/boyfiend who has no idea what a selfish slooter his wife/girlfriend once was, and probably still is.
There is no loyalty—all that matters is what they want. They are getting away with murder, acting like mother of the year because they are now too old, undesirable and tied down to be worth anything on the market. Some women get married and say you're “The best thing that ever happened to me,” Wrong, she realized one day she was not the star of the show anymore.
“I deserve more.”
A large percentage of these women, while “happily married”, are still seeking attention in other ways. One thing a female cannot give up until the day she dries up is attention. Some of you guys right now have a small library of photos sent to you via text or email of these types. Boobs, butt, things inserted—you name it—some with heads chopped off for anonymity. Anyone of these women can be found on my Facebook feed with pictures of her children and husband proclaiming that these are the greatest things in their life. Right. Until she felt insecure and needed someone to compliment her boobs so she can live another day. Oh, guys what’s that on your cell phone? Nothing crazy, just another text photo of her butt/boobs in the bathroom mirror because her and hubby had a fight today!
A former partner in crime with Mark Lichtenwalter, Joshua Sparks has recanted his former testimony of the same, which bore testimony of his lie. From his email:
"Jimmy I wanted to let you and Art know I am not in any way shape or form a part of what Mark is doing. I have not spoken to him for some months. I will never speak with him again. I have no desire to be numbered as such either because he is gone way off track. I know I encouraged him but my so called revelations I received but it was made by mans imaginations and not God. I am sorry for anything I have stirred up by those false things I had written. I am asking for forgiveness, not anything else. I hope your doing well. I hope Art is doing well also." Email, April 10, 2014
Mark's lie in an effort to join the devil (the father of lies) at his own game was calculated by him to "trump" (in his ignorant view) my own vision and subsequent ordination to the Apostleship, the keys of which I now hold in the name of Israel's God, by claiming a visitation from a heavenly messenger who then "ordained" him. This tale was rejected for being contrary to the order of heaven, contradicting the following from Joseph Smith himself, the greatest of the Sons of God, next to Jesus, my Jesus:
...no true angel from God will ever come to ordain any man, because they have once been sent to establish the priesthood by ordaining me thereunto; and the priesthood being once established on earth, with power to ordain others, no heavenly messenger will ever come to interfere with that power by ordaining any more. ...You may therefore know, from this time forward, that if any man comes to you professing to be ordained by an angel, he is either a liar or has been imposed upon in consequence of transgression by an angel of the devil, for this priesthood shall never be taken away...

What is Faded Diamonds about?
The Godhand Women’s Home houses two hundred of South Florida’s most desperate young women, and what begins as Leila Sudders’ refuge from her turbulent past quickly becomes a distorted mirror of her own darkness, so she does what she does best as she awaits her child’s birth: close up.
But despite her waning efforts, her toughness carves a path of treacherous consequence that intensifies as her due date draws near, which erupts when she crosses four other desperate women suffering from borderline personality disorder, PTSD, and schizophrenia. One of the five, missionary counselor Diana, fights tooth and nail to empower the others to overcome their demons and see their hidden beauty.
Three brilliant minds created Faded Diamonds - Camille Burke, Stacey Pacouloute and Mellissa Thomas.
Now, more than ever before, the patient is not just the recipient of healthcare, but MUST accept a share of the responsibility in the partnership with the physician by actively participating in the process!
The passive patient accepts status quo, accepts what they are “given”, and lives with it! The consequence? We have become the most obese nation in the world, we are dying an average of 8 years younger than we did ten years ago, the quality of our healthcare is the lowest of other industrialized nations. The health status of the “average” American is embarrassing!
The active patient must participate in the process of healthcare, doing their part to optimize personal quality of health! This is PARTICULARLY true for patients presenting with history of acquired brain injury, or other neurological diseases and disorders. The brain regulations everything the body does, including our immune system, and all functional capacity! Only with optimal nutrition, good health behavior, and accepting personal responsibility can your body achieve optimal recovery, maintain levels of performance, and good health, facilitating your personal goals and goals for your relationships, spouse, family, employment, etc.The choice is yours to make!
Host David E. Nilsson Ph.D. ABPP/CN: A board certified Clinical Neuropsychologist having practiced more than 35 years, focusing his clinical practice on infants/toddlers, children,and adolescents. Roughly a year ago, Dr. Nilsson sustained a brain injury, as a result of complications from surgery for a torn rotator cuff. Initially the brain injury was not obvious, but he presented with a constellation of predictable (and some less predictable) neurocognitive/neurobehavioral consequences of his injury. As a result, he has not been able to return to his practice.

Anger is a strong emotion. It can take you from a good place to the worse place in a matter of seconds. If anger is not controlled, it will eventually control the one who carries it. We are interesting, intelligent and powerful people, yet it seems we become powerless when anger shows up. Don't relinquish your power! Anger isn't worth your life, nor is it worth the precious moments that slip away because of it. The bible tells us that it's o
