    The Single Mother Diaries: Author Aria Craig

    in Books

    Meet Author Aria Craig: Raised in a south suburb of Chicago with two siblings by a single mother, Aria Craig lived a life full of successes and challenges  - from the zeal to strive, receive higher education, and succeed to being bullied, sexual abused and fatherless. While learning from her mom's experiences, she chose to make wiser decisions once becoming a single parent in her early 20's. Aria was determined to excel against stigmas and stereotypes. With a spirit of tenacity and character of trailblazing, she pursued a Bachelors in Technical Management and Masters in Business Administration while raising her son by encouraging his leadership abilities, talents and victories.


    Even though her journey was in finance, she always found joy and therapy in writing. From the praises and compliments that she received about parenting her son, Aria decided to write a series of books entitled The Single Mother Diaries - empowerment tools that offer tips on single, divorced and co-parenting strategies. She has mentored other single parents with making wiser decisions that benefit them and the development of their children (of all ages). Aria is now married with three beautiful step-children and has established a wonderful newfound connection with her father and paternal family.

    The music of deception is playing everywhere.

    in News

    I grew up on rock and roll. More to the point, on The Rolling Stones. Sympathy For The Devil played on my dad's gigantic hifi that was the size of a bookcase and we kids sang and danced along in ignorant bliss. 


    Can you imagine? 


    With that being said, that song and others like Led Zeppelin's, Stairway To Heaven, have helped to transform the societal landscape from one of piousness to one of debauchery.


    On yesterday's show I used an intro from Gun's and Roses called, Reckless Life. It starts out with a driving beat leading up to a crescendo that screams, "I'm Reckless!" For my whole life I have used a phrase "with reckless abandonment..." For example: I worked with a sense of reckless abandonment to get the job done. For some reason I had linked it to the verse Hebrews 12:1 and always thought about running my race with reckless abandonment...


    "Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."


    This morning, God led me to look up the word "reckless" in the Bible...WHOA...that's the last thing that I want to be.


    TUNE IN & TURN ON to the Neptune Diaries!


    God bless you!

    Don't stop believing...

    in News

    It's funny, right?


    I bet you can hear the Journey song in your head...


    Well, they are right. DON'T STOP BELIEVING...NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS!


    The Bible clearly states that things are going to get so crazy that Matthew 24:24 says


    "For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before."


    Things are going to get super hectic as we approach His coming...


    Are you ready? Is your faith in shape? 


    TUNE IN & TURN ON to tomorrow's chapter of The Neptune Diaries.


    God bless you!

    in Sports

    Don't worry, we have no idea why we're doing this, either.


    This Sunday is Wrestlemania 31, the biggest event in fake sports of the year. Because we're a bunch of children, we decided to do a podcast dedicate to WWE's premier event. Adam Collyer, Bill DiFilippo, BSD alum Dan Vecellio and CoachingSearch.com Managing Editor/contributor to The Only Colors (the network's Michigan State blog) Chris Vannini got together to talk about this year's card. If you have nothing better to do, we highly recommend listening as the guys get way too giddy about Brock Lesnar.
