I know a whole bunch of folks are going to get mad at us BUT...too many daggone Christains are saddles with a "poverty mentality!" This mindset is NOT exclusive to economics, in fact, many Christians are bankrupt morally, socially, physically and psychologically. Lonliness, despair, fear, etc. all play a major role in the life of a poverty stricken Christian!
Let's talk about it...RIGHT NOW!

This week we discuss "Black Poverty" ... What are your thoughts? Do you believe American Culture is apart of black poverty?
High-poverty schools require considerable resources and deliberate action to adequately support children and families, to address the institutional barriers to opportunity children face, and to ensure students' academic and life success. While the challenges are many, there is a blueprint for what works.
Turnaround for Children, Inc. Founder, President, and CEO Pamela Cantor, M.D. talks to us about school turnaround and about why it is necessary, especially in high-poverty schools, for turnaround experts to partner with schools and educators and with students and families to systematically address the impacts of poverty on teaching and learning.
Host Allison R. Brown is a civil rights attorney and President of Allison Brown Consulting (ABC), which creates education equity plans with schools and promotes equity in education in compliance with federal law.
100 Pennies is the story of a young girl living in Quebec, growing up in such poverty that she often fantasized that if she could get people to give her pennies; 100 pennies in fact, she would be rich and could change her life and the lives of her family forever.
An autobiography in the works, the Voice of Leadership's guest is Gaetane Martin, author of 100 Pennies, who graciously and with intense vulnerability, shares her story with our listeners.
Gaetane sheds light on her work, speaking to educators and therapists about the importance of listening to children, and the indiscriminant scope of poverty and hunger, and its impact on our future: our children.
This is part one of 100 Pennies: the beginning. Part two airs next week and takes our guest through to a life that is savored and sends a message of love.
The evidence is staggering!
POVERTY destroys THE BRAIN!
POVERTY CAUSES STRESS!
STRESS ATROPHIES THE BRAIN!
STRESS ACTIVITIES THE HIPPOCAMPUS;
WHICH CAUSES DEPRESSION AND DIABETES!
POVERTY CAUSES PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEMS!
A study at Boston Children’s Hospital concludes, severe psychological and physical neglect produces measurable changes in children’s brains.
Stress and poverty go hand-in-hand. More important than unhealthy lifestyles and lack of access to good healthcare, chronic stress makes many susceptible to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, depression and diabetes. The impact upon the brain is seen with those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder: the hippocampus part of their brains is atrophied.
Chronic stress, which is experienced by many poor children, can be devastating since the hippocampus regulates emotional responses, is critical in the formation of memory and spatial awareness.
