John M. Simmons is the author of The Marvelous Journey Home, 2008 winner of the Utah Best of State Awards- Fiction category. Based on actual events, the novel tells the remarkable story of parents and children coming together. With scenes situated from orphanages in small, remote Russian villages, to Moscow, and finally on to America, readers are taken on a journey around the world. Home is found in distant places, peace is found in unlikely circumstances, and family is always what matters most.
Simmons' second title, To Sing Frogs, is now available in bookstores and online at JohnMSimmons.com.
John and his wife have adopted both domestically and internationally, with five adopted children from Russia. He has a personal understanding of how the politics of Russian adoption affect those in the process of adopting children, and the impact to the children themselves.
Simmons recently resigned as the President/CEO of White Knight Fluid Handling, Inc., a business which he started, to spend his time focusing on adoption awareness and the charity, Ele Lembra (He Remembers), which he and his family founded. Ele Lembra is a 501(c)(3) public charity that assists children without parents as they age out of orphanages.
He lives with his wife, Amy and their children in Kamas, Utah, a small mountain valley east of Park City.
The sex trade made the news in mid-April with the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls. Unfortunately, Nigeria is merely the tip of a growing iceberg. Sex trafficking has become a lucrative business worldwide, second only to the drug trade. In Moldova alone over 400,000 women have disappeared. Does that make your heart ache? Choke you with anger? Have you been praying? I have and all Christians should absolutely pray fervently.
But Philip Cameron has done more. As founder of an international ministry called Stella’s Voice (www.stellasvoice.org) he has provided a home for some of those vulnerable girls. Yet there are so many more girls still in danger. Cameron will explain how we can add physical action to our prayers.

It's Thursday on the Brian The Hammer Show as Brian welcomes his guest today:
-Ion Baleanu, Actor, Voice Artist, Musician, Author. As a child of 3 yrs in Romania Ion's Father witnessed a murder by some Securitate (Secret Police) and he wanted justice. Not knowing this was something ordered by mid-level government bureaucrats he thought he was following the chain of command by reporting it. Through this they tried to get "rid" of him by putting him in a mental institution, putting Ion's family in orphanages, etc to shut him up so he sought political asylum in the US.
What Ion learned from his life experiences:
-Our family's escape from communist Romania; Fortitude and never give up. When you are told you can't, show them you can!
-Homeless as a teenager; Find the Fight in You! Although Ion had nowhere to live he still found a way to live and survive each day.
-The death of his son Elijah of Anenecephaly in 2005 (Anencephaly is a condition where a baby is born without a skull, mostly dur to a lack of folic acid in the mother prior to conception. As tragic as that was for Ion he learned the he can't let it keep him in a funk!
All these life lessons have taught Ion that he doesn't belong to himself, that he is on this earth to help others. Through his various art forms he touches others.
Ion's most recent project is being selected to be involved with Asociatia Romanilor din New England. He is also involved in a play "The Annulment", written by Plymouth playwright Sheila Kelleher. Ion is taking character classes with well known voice over Wren Ross. Ion is also starting his own food line. And would like to one day open his own technical school.
Of all Ion's accomplishments he is happy to have reconnected with his daughter on live national TV on the hit show "Mobbed" starring Howie Mandel
