    Is Kindergarten The New 1st Grade

    in Education

    Kindergartners are receiving more and more homework from school and are expected to know  a certain set of sight words upon entering Kindergarten. The academic requirements for reading preparation now begin in Kindergarten. No longer do kindergartners play most of the day, instead they are required to do school work. This new academic outlook is surprising to some parents. Are we helping our children to develop academically or our we creating a wider gap in academic success? Does learning to read in Kindergarten help prepare you for 1st and 2nd grade literacy or are we creating a pool of 2nd and 3rd graders who don't meet the new standards? Our guest speaker the Director of Georgia Education Consulting will be here today to discuss that with you. Stay tuned

    in Family

    Today we are thinking of our nation’s Thanksgiving holiday and Debi Dutton and Elissa Sungar, the mother-daughter co-founders of If Not You Who.org, give some tips on how to teach a child to be thankful. Children that are thankful have more positive attitudes toward school and family. They also feel more of a connection with friends, family and school. Being grateful makes people happier, improves health and reduces stress. How wonderful that Productive Play shares ways to instill the character trait of thankfulness into our little one’s lives.

    Join us live at 1pmET or anytime in archive here on WoMRadio - the show for mompreneurs, the new business woman.

    in Paranormal

    Bishop James Long will be joining us on THE EERIE VOICE, Thursday 11/19/15 live at 8pm ET.

    We will be discussing demonic possession, his demonology course, the church, and many other interesting topics, so tune in!!

    For more information on his demonology course please go to http://www.demonologyclass.com/DemonologyClass/Welcome.html

    Bishop James was born in Louisville, Kentucky and was raised Roman Catholic.  He attended a Roman Catholic grade school and it was during the time while he was attending kindergarten that he knew that he had a calling to serve as a priest.  His mother had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and +James pointed at the priest and said, “I want to do what he does.”

    From then on, his calling to serve as a priest grew stronger as the years progressed until he decided to join the seminary and begin his formation.

    Bishop James attended St. Meinrad College but because of financial problems, the school had to close its doors.  Therefore, he transferred to Loyola University in Chicago and graduated.

    He continued his priestly studies by joining Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois.  It was during this time that James began working closely with his spiritual director and through prayer, he decided that God was calling him to serve as a priest within the Independent Catholic Church.

    Because of his theological differences with the Roman Catholic Church, James felt that it was better to be ordained within the Independent Catholic Church.  This decision was not an easy one and it was a decision that he made out of respect for the Roman Catholic Church and his calling.

    He is currently the Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church and offers Spiritual and Life help for those who seek his assistance.

    No Longer A Bridesmaid w/Terry Cato

    in Motivation

    Join Me and my special guest Terry Cato for an in-depth discussion on her book "No Longer A Bridesmaid".

    Terry's Bio:

    I have been writing ever since I could write words and form sentences. My earliest memory of writing was when I was in kindergarten and I would write sentences in my coloring books before I colored the pictures. As a child, I also wrote poems. I began to write song and rap lyrics as a teenager. Throughout my twenties and most of my thirties, I experienced severe writer's block and did not write any type of creative literature.

    ?In 2008, I began writing song lyrics again; and in 2010 God gave me the vision to write about my experience and journey to become a wife as I sat in a marriage enrichment class at my church. After writing an outline of the book, it would be another year before I started work on the manuscript. The initial title was Always a Bridesmaid ~ Never a Bride because I felt like a perpetual bridesmaid during my season of preparing to be a wife. After completing the manuscript, I edited the title to more accurately decribe my total experience; and No Longer A Bridesmaid! was born. I have a heart to help women by uplifting, empowering and motivating them to become all that God has called and purposed them to be. My ministry advocates for and suppport causes that uplift and empower women and girls.

    I am married to Lloyd; he is my Boaz, my "Knight In Shining Armor" and the King of the castle. We have three wonderful children.
