    Why does Mommy hurt? An interview with author Elizabeth Christy on chronic pain

    in Health

    Elizabeth M. Christy lives in Northern Virginia with her husband James, son Jimmy (5), and daughter Lucy (newborn). She is the best-selling author of the children’s book "Why Does Mommy Hurt? Helping Children Cope with having a Caregiver with Chronic Pain, Fibromyalgia, or Autoimmune Disease," and blogs on parentswithpain.com and potomacfallsmama.blogspot.ca.  Additionally, she works as a Systems Integrator for TASC. In addition to basic survival, Elizabeth enjoys writing, sewing (especially in straight lines!), and reading good memoirs.


    “Why Does Mommy Hurt?” is a great resource to talk to children about chronic pain and illness. On this episode, we'll discuss the guilt and shame many parents suffering from chronic pain feel about their parenting. The fact is that parents with chronic pain or illness can be just as awesome as “normal” parents when it comes to raising kids, and if you love your kids, that’s all that matters.  We may not be able to walk a mile to the playground, cook a 7-course organic meal from scratch, or volunteer on a field trip to the amusement park, but that’s not what really matters. If you love your kids, you will find your own way, and your kids will know it. Also, many parents in this situation feel very alone, especially when first diagnosed. There are millions of families out there in the same situation, you are not alone, and you have support out there waiting for you!

  • The Power of Your Mind & Body to Eliminate Emotional & Physical Pain Instantly

    in Spirituality

    The Voice of Change welcomes Larry Kiser to the program today.  The title of the program is The Power of your mind and body to eliminate emotional and physical pain instantly!  Innate within everyone is the ability to change whatever bothers you on the spot.  A bold claim, yes, but provable , through body and feeling confirmation.  A few simple self tests can instantly demonstrate this fact. While explainable scientifically it is also of the mystical realm because it takes place in the holographic energetic and electro-magnetic fields.


    Larry Kiser was a Federal prosecutor of white collar crime for over 20 years. At one point I was contacted by an ex-Cia agent which put me on the road to practicing the art of healing remotely and learning about the real potential of every human. Larry is known as a sensitive, cognitive intuitive and clairvoyant, with the ability to feel the inner working of a person's body and facilitate immediate relief.  He has studied with healers in Russia, Chinese Energetic Healers, Huna Healers, the Emissaries of Divine Light, a German Mystic of the Carmelite Order, the Akashic Record workers, and Shamans. His website is www.llkiser.com.  In addition, he has taught in Germany, Latvia, Mexico, Canada and various places in the United States.

    in Friends

    Everyone wants happy and fulfilling relationships. One of the things that prevent us from having them is emotinal immaturity. Emotionally immature people can be extremely challenging to deal with, because their ability to interpret and react to the variety of life's challenges is often impaired. If you are in a relationship with someone that is emotionally immature you probably face great challenges in dealing with their moods and behaviors. They tend to try to control their world and those around them. We'll talk about the signs of emotional immaturity. What it's rooted in? And perhaps we can help each other change and grow.
