Shannon's guest this week, Julia Torres Barden, an award-winning journalist, gubernatorial appointee, and PTSD survivor. She endured a violent New York City childhood as a Puerto Rican girl from the South Bronx, which she chronicles in her book, “NEWYORICANGIRL…Surviving my Spanglish Life.” This novel/memoir is a gritty tale of trauma and painful cultural assimilation while pursuing the American dream. After navigating a traumatic childhood that included rape, her mother's conflicted life as the mistress of a powerful CEO, alcoholic parents, and forced adoption, Julia found herself trapped in New York City on 9/11.
"In 2013, I pushed my luck and I lived. I stared down my deepest fears and didn’t back down. I shared my vulnerability with strangers and they embraced me. I took so many risks that I exhausted myself to the brink of disaster. I looked the boogeyman straight in the eye and he blinked first; leaving me victorious and free," said Julia about her memoir.

Julia Roller:The first months and years of motherhood can be the most challenging and disorienting of your life—and faith. When you’re surrounded by the happy chaos of children, how do you spend quiet time with God if the only quiet time you get is while you sleep? How can you demonstrate a solid spiritual life to your children if you don’t have time to pursue one yourself?
When Julia Roller discovered that her spiritual growth had been stunted by the busyness of life with her toddler, she embarked on a yearlong journey through ten spiritual disciplines: prayer, fellowship, submission, study, simplicity, silence, worship, fasting, service, and celebration. As she focused on each discipline, she discovered practical ways to observe them—even in the chaos of her every day.
Mom Seeks God offers a highly relatable story and useful advice to help new moms grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer. As readers discover ten essential faith practices, they’ll learn that motherhood, itself, is a spiritual discipline, and may be God’s most effective technique for forming a more Christ-like life.

We are going to interview Reed Timmer from the TVNWeather Network. He is a well known weather chaser that has worked with the Weather Channel and had his own tv documentery on chasing tornadoes
(written by Reed):
For as long as I can remember, I've always wanted to be a storm chaser. Growing up in Michigan, I was obsessed with severe storms and blizzards and realized that when I got my driver's license at the age of 16, I didn't have to wait for the storms to come to me anymore. When my classmates were going to parties in high school, I would sneak out of the house at night to chase lake effect snow squalls in the Lower Michigan snow belts, always knowing that my heart was in Tornado Alley. In 1998 I moved to Norman, Oklahoma, to study meteorology at the University of Oklahoma, driven not only by a deep-rooted passion to chase tornadoes, but also to understand the science behind them.
Join Corrine De Winter & Karen Kaye for a discussion with Dr. Julia Assante- author of "The Last Frontier."
Dr. Julia Assante, the author, is an established social historian of the ancient Near East (PhD Columbia University). Yet for over three decades she has also been an active professional intuitive. In her book, The Last Frontier: Exploring the Afterlife and Transforming Our Fear of Death, she applies the insights and methodologies gained from both fields in order to present a uniquely rigorous investigation of where we go after we die.
"Each person is born with a spiritual and biological faith that is personal, intimate, and optimistic. Real faith springs from innate awareness of our connectedness with all living beings, with nature and All That Is. It requires only that we retrieve that child part in each of us that knows the universe is good. Not good and evil, not even good and bad. Just good. It is knowing that every consciousness is uniquely meaningful and charged with purpose. That survival beyond the body is the only possible outcome. That the afterworld is not about judgment and condemnation. That All That Is is so all-encompassing, so unfathomably compassionate that even forgiveness is dwarfed into insignificance. This faith is what people who have returned from near-death states bring back with them. For the dead it is the ever-present state of grace in which they dwell." -Julia Assante
