    LUwJC#049 Giving and Receiving Support Through Grief and Loss

    in Self Help

    "There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief...and unspeakable love." - Washington Irving


    Today on Lighten Up, Jen and Cheri are continuing the conversation about the giving and receiving of support during times of grief.


    If you have ever wondered "What can I do?!" When you feel helpless and frustrated because you know you can't change anything, this is a show you won't want to miss!


    And if you are going through a hard time and are tired of people asking what they can do to help, or worse fed up with everyone trying to 'fix' your pain, this show might be helpful to know how to set boundaries and get the respect you need so you can make it through your personal experience.


    Call in and talk to Jen and Cheri directly! (646) 200-0825

    Grief- Talk

    in Religion

    Dr. Jones, Beneath the Grief Ministries will talk on procrastination. The reason why many people cannot get priorities in order is because they procrastinate. Procrastination can make one lose out on many opportunities in life and oftentimes it's is centered in a fear or anxiety that attacks one who is insecure about the task they are delaying to accomplish.  Denying the task can cripple and damage in more ways than one.

    Tommy Bird on Life Through Sled Dogs, Back in the Day

    in Entertainment

    I apologize to everyone this morning, as I was having serious technical difficulties getting the show going. So, once I managed to fix things, I started a new broadcast, and what an hour it was.


    Tommy Bird is one of the finest story tellers I've had the pleasure to speak with, and he has promised to return again to tell us more. He shares his life from a wee boy through today working with these sled dogs we so love, stories from the trap line, his races and a few tips on how he manages his team, and why they are so very exceptional.
