Today I want to talk to you about a happy ending. We all like a good ending, and a happy ending makes for a good ending. We read books to get to the ending, we watch movies to see how it ends. I can endure a slow start or even a bad start to a movie or book if it picks up and has a good ending. We can't even begin to count how many children's books end with the line “and they lived happily ever after.” It's just something in our nature that wants to see things work in a good way for good people.

Described as a hot and hilarious romp of a scifi-horror comedy feature that chronicles what happens when an alien predator invades a remote desert bordello, forcing the Working Girls and their Johns to fight for their lives...and humanity's survival, this indie gem is directed by Phil Condit and has one hell of a cast! Maria Olsen, Victoria De Mare, & Dawna Lee Heising all play outragous characters that you have to see to believe! With a crazy science fiction vibe, we'll be playing music that will set the tone for this alien erotic horror adventure while the cast of the film joins us to tell the twisted tale of what a Happy Ending really means! ;)

When we come into fortune, we can not give that fortune right back to the Albion European Roman occupiers in our land. Use your own abilities to figure out a way to keep your fortune in the Moorish community. You are the only soul who knows how this can be done with your own fortune; in your own area; and in your own situation. Be a self-made leader within self - as we move to DECOLONIZE AND SANITIZE FROM THE OCCUPYING ALBION EUROPEAN ROMAN CANCER; as did our AFRICAN MOORISH NATIONS succeeded in doing. ISLAM!
Moors will use the methods of our family in other parts of the Moroccan Empire across the waters to succeed!

Join me and my guest host, Holly. A wonderful friend of mine, Holly is a counselor who greatly loves and pursues God. Her heart is for evangelism, for the lost, for counseling, for God and others, and she's just an all-around amazing minister of the love of God.
On this episode we are going to talk about the unfailing, eternal, never-ending love of God! This is my all-time favorite subject. God's love is the view through which we want to see everything He does. Without understanding and experiencing His love, nothing else makes sense. It is a cornerstone concept in the Bible that we want to really "get". We pray you experience God's love in a very real way and it launches you into a life where you want to continually live in His beautiful love!
*After episode note -- this turned into a lot of good scripture and teaching on the love of God, liberally salted with prayer for everyone to experience the Love of God. It's rather long, but it is a good foundation. Listen to however much you have time for, thanks & blessings! <3
