Kori welcomes the founders of Multicultural Children's Book Day to the program. Join us in a discussion about diversity in children's book publishing, what's gone wrong, what's going right, and where it's headed.
Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. Using the Multicultural Children’s Book Day, Mia and Valarie are on a mission to change all of that. Their mission is to not only raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these types of books into classrooms and libraries. Another goal of this exciting event is to create a compilation of books and favorite reads that will provide not only a new reading list for the winter, but also a way to expose brilliant books to families, teachers, and libraries.

Like the Brady Bunch blended familes can prove to be todays traditional family! When a man and woman fall in love and bring along baggage which includes children from previous relationships it can be a slippery slope. Depending on the age of the children blending the families can often times cause a disruption in the relationship between the husband and wife. Other times one of the two may have one child or multiple children and the other may not have any causing the then single adult to take on responsibilities he or she may not be prepared for. And then you have the relationship with the man or woman whom has adult children. GEESH! Now comes the possible impact of the meeting of the minds.
How does the disconnection in the relationship between the married two work when one of the adults has STOPPED parenting for reasons of lack of love, concern, devotion or otherwise? How can the relationship move forward or can it? Dont miss out on this discussion today! I invite you for lunch to join me by simply calling in at 646.200.0995!

n Colorado Springs, 700 children currently reside in a shortage of 200 foster homes. Foster parents are not employed to care for the children in their home; they volunteer.
Reimbursement payments cover a portion of housing, food and clothing costs, but many foster parents use their own funds to give the children the same clothes or opportunities as their biologic children.
Foster parents are overwhelmed. They must regularly keep in contact with the court and the system that oversees the welfare of each child. They not only feed and shelter children, but they ensure regular contact with their biological families, take children to therapies, court appointments, and doctor appointments. They desire to provide stability, nurture and a sense of community for each child. If there is more than one child in foster care in the family, the burden is multiplied. Foster parents often run out of personal resources or time to provide more than just the basics.
Foster parents find it difficult to persist. Some foster care agencies in Colorado Springs lose 30-50% of family foster homes each year. It is difficult work, with little incentive or reward. People who foster are increasingly isolated and frustrated. Those who hang in there are amazingly committed – but there are far too few of them.
If foster parents were to get a little help and support from their community, they would be able to continue to fulfill this important need. If extra hands could help share in all the tasks and duties, more time would be available for the foster parents to create the stable, nurturing, enriched environments in their homes that promote healing.
That is where Fostering Hope comes in. We provide those supports to foster families, so they can persist in doing the difficult task of fostering children who have challenging needs.
What constitutes a family seems to be ever changing in the United States of America and around the world. The word family conjures and image of a man married to a woman with children together. That image is still typical. But you also have the divorced man and divorced woman with children from previous marriages. You know the Brady Bunch type that became the new normal in the 70’s. Then there was the proliferation of single parent families and now same-sex parent families have become the new normal. What are your thoughts on the new normal same-sex parent families? More importantly what does the scripture say regarding this most recent new-normal family type?
We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Mon 8:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Thu 8:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
Nearly half of the marriages in the U.S. over the last decade have been between people of different faiths, and many of those families are raising children fully in both parents’ religious traditions. Almost one quarter of all Americans attend religious services of more than one faith or denomination. Interfaith marriages are increasingly common.
Clergy often argue that children raised with two faiths will be confused, and oftentimes one religion takes precedence over another in an effort to minimize conflict. Choosing one religion works for many families, but not all of them.
On this episode of Real Talk with Pastor Ray, Pastor Ray will address this very common issue, and answer the questions:
Should parents choose one religion for their children?
Should they teach both religions and let their child choose?
Or should they not push religion and faith at all?
Join this very powerful discussion on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, at 8:00pm PST/ 10:00pm CST/ 11:00pm EST.
