    The Transfiguration of Our World: How a Light Alliance is Transforming Darkness

    in Spirituality

    and creating a New Earth!


    Why is our world in such upheaval today? What or who is causing it, and where are we headed? The Transfiguration of Our World gives a comprehensive overview of the world situation, why we are having such problems, and the solutions now being put in place. According to author Gordon Asher Davidson, the world is being guided by an interdimensional Light Alliance working closely with many members of humanity to release the hold of darkness on our planet. In order to loosen the impasse currently gripping the world, it is essential for us to recognize and understand the purpose of higher beings and civilizations from beyond our planet. Their intention is to help us co-create a sustainable and spiritually fulfilling civilization based on love and aligned with a higher spiritual plan for human evolution.

  • The Crossover Alliance -- Write Stuff -- 8/11/2015

    in Entertainment

    Are you  an author who loves to create exciting worlds, mystical creatures, and magical powers? Maybe you like a little bit of adrenaline pumping survival threaded throughout your book as your character fights off a horde of zombies. Do vampires, werewolves, and shape-shifters really get your creative juices bubbling? And you want to mix in your faith as well?


    I’ve said this often on the show but I’ve had the privilege of reading books of Christian speculative fiction that encompasses all these aspects and still have a wonderful faith-filled theme. Sometimes it’s been subtle and other times, it’s been more overt. The fact is that as an author you do not have to choose if your fantasy, horror, or paranormal fiction has a place in the Christian publisher industry. It does!


    Join me as I talk with David Alderman of the Crossover Alliance, a publishing company that publishes edgy Christian speculative fiction. Plus, they are accepting submissions for their anthology now! More details during the show! Call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

    Honesty is the Best Policy?

    in Romance

    This is such a popular concept and saying in the marriage and relationship community. But is it ALWAYS? If the honesty is broken in a marriage, it could potentially take several years of repair. Rebuilding takes trust, and trust is difficult to regain. When honesty is brought up in regards to a marriage, what do you instantly think of? Infidelity issues, right? I typically do. In actuality honesty refers to a vast array of subjects and there are several layers to it. It is argued that there are times when being open and honest is NOT in the best interest of the relationship. Let’s chop it up! Let’s discuss the many attributes and perspectives there are to honesty in a marriage/relationship. Tune it, call in. Share your opinions with the world. Friday night, Midnight-2AM 347.637.3528…
