The photos of enslaved West Africans show these quilted coded patterns from the quilts "ichie" marks cut into their skin
If you read the book, Hidden In Plain View, written by Jackie Tobin should tune in to The Gist of Freedom with Roy Paul (@RoyPaulReports) and his guest, author Mrs.Teresa Kemp! Teresa book The Keeper of the Fire book covers not just Igbo Tribe's slavery but slavery in Africa by Arabs and Africans.
Many people questions the encoded quilts. They argue enslaved Africans were not intelligent enough to out smart the Slavers. What many fail to understand, that most Africans were multi-langual. They wrote and read in more than on language. Many asked who could understand the coded quilt pattern language. Tonight's guest, Mrs. Kemp has posters from Nigeria that date the symbols and patterns to 1400 AD this is clearly before the Civil War in America 1861-1865. We have the linage of 3 Eze's of Igbo land to 1042, 1087, 1092 BC.

"I love boxing. I love Hallmark movies. I love fishing. I love scrapbooking. Nope, I've never fit into the boxes people have wanted to put me in." ~Robin Caroll is definitely a contradiction, but one that beckons you to get to know her better.
Born and raised in Louisiana, Robin is a southerner through and through. Her passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others. Robin's mother, bless her heart, is a genealogist who instilled in Robin the deep love of family and pride of heritage--two aspects Robin weaves into each of her 16 published novels. When she isn't writing, Robin spends time with her husband of twenty+ years, her three beautiful daughters and two handsome grandsons, and their character-filled pets at home--in the South, where else? She gives back to the writing community by serving as Conference Director for ACFW. Her books have finaled/placed in such contests as the Carol Award, Holt Medallion, RT Reviewer's Choice Award, Bookseller's Best, and Book of the Year.
On her faith, Robin says, "I love Jesus and will follow Him wherever He leads me."
An avid reader herself, Robin loves hearing from and chatting with other readers. Although her favorite genre to read is mystery/suspense, of course, she'll read just about any good story. Except historicals! To learn more about this author of deep South mysteries of suspense to inspire your heart, visit Robin's website at www.robincaroll.com.

When one hears of quilting, you think of "quilting bees", Log Cabin quilts, and the celebration of major life events. And while these traditions still and should exist, the craft has been revitalized with new ideas, voices, and techniques that has changed the face of quilting. One such voice is quilter, Tresa McConachie, who got the quilting bug after many years as a sewer.
Join us today as we learn about Tresa and her quilting adventures. To learn more about creative workshops, tutorials, e-books and patterns, visit iCreateFlix.com.

Join host, Tabatha Pope as she chats it up with debut romance author, Blaire Edens on The Librarian on Authors on the Air.
Blaire Edens lives in mountains of North Carolina on a farm that’s been in her family since 1790. When she’s not plotting, she’s busy knitting, running, or listening to the Blues. Blaire loves iced tea with mint, hand-stitched quilts, and yarn stores. She refuses to eat anything that mixes chocolate and peanut butter or apple and cinnamon. She’s generally nice to her mother, tries to remember not to smack her bubble gum, and only speeds when no one’s looking.
Blaire's debut, Wild About Rachel, is a must-not-miss read for those looking to laugh, cry and feel warm and fuzzy all over. Oh and all of this in the midst of creepy, scaly creatures! Her writing is fresh and some of the wittiest this librarian has read in a while. Find out more about Blaire and her books, visit www.blaireedens.com.
Host of "The Librarian", Tabatha Pope, can be found at All For Love of the Word and Facebook.

Vision Boards are a map to your future, the one you set forth. Remember it all starts with a thought! Here's one of many links online that supports your creating a Vision Board if you decide you still need more help after this show Make A Vision Board Website
My first experiences with Visioning came from reading Shakti Gawain's Book: Creative Visualization. I learned to meditate on my goals in pictures. Most of the work is done for you. You don't have to be a great artist to design your life...find the picture online or in magazines and cut & paste your way to Deep desires!
According to MindBodyGreen website you don't have to have a board you can leave signposts throughout your home as long as it's inspiritng to you.
I decided to make both a Vision Book and Vision Quilt projects for designing my future. I still have vision boards strategically placed throughout my home, but I like the idea of taking a book with me when I travel or sleeping under and being wrapped up in my intentions! (What a lovely warming thought!)
Vision Boards can be as cluttered or spacious as you like in words, pictures or encompass textrures. If you want to live by the Ocrean maybe attach some sand or seashells to your board. Find a key chain with your chosen car logo on it and replace your car keychain with it to remind you of what you are driving soon! Check out the examples I've listed here and watch this wonderful video aobut Vision Boards from Step One Vision Boards
Join us as we Brilliantly design our futures and Map Your life!
Remember to Bring On Your Brilliance!!
