    Author/Speaker/Challenge Conqueror Michelle A. Roberts stops by Good Deeds

    in Motivation

    Michelle A. Roberts of Atlanta, Georgia, is a fighter and a winner. She describes her impressive life change in this way: “After being married for 17 years, I finally awakened to the realization that my drug-addicted husband was not going to change. I had remained in the marriage—for too long—largely for two reasons. One was because I thought no one would want a fat girl with three babies. The other, deeper reason was because I was not raised with my father and always longed for that relationship, so I clung to the hope that my husband would be the man who would fill that void. He did not. In fact, he put our children and me through the maddening frustrations and disappointments that come with sharing life with an addict. I became so depressed I began carrying 268 pounds on a five-foot frame. Finally, however, I took charge of my life. I had life-altering surgery, gastric bypass, and lost more than 110 pounds. I got a divorce, began a lifestyle of fitness, went back to school, and obtained bachelors, masters and is currently a Doctoral Candidate. I opened several businesses and authored several books. Yes, the years of schooling and attitude change were hard. Yes, I cried. Yes, I complained sometimes. But whenever I felt on the verge of giving up, I had only to look at my three children, and a fight for dear life would arise in me.” Michelle A. Roberts, is a professional speaker & published Author she specializes in training and encouraging Women that they are overcomers, and can comeback from any challenge. Ms. Roberts is a member of the American Business Women’s Association, Airport Charter Chapter and National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Mecca Chapter.

    Ep 116: Author Julia Roberts on Sex, Lies, and Creativity

    in Books

    Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as the interviews author Julia Roberts on the publishing of her book, Sex, Lies, and Creativity, which is her third book. It's actually an easy-to-read version of her Masters research, stripped of its academic opacity and made to sing, as she put it, For Roberts, it's more important to move the reader than to create an unassailable argument in a labored defensive style of writing. "It just flowed," she said about the writing of the book. "I knew the material and was writing it for the reader." 


    The best thing to come out of having this book, according to Roberts, was being on Bestseller status ontwo different lists: Creativity & Genius and Women's Studies.

    Feel - Deal - Heal with Pastor Renee Roberts

    in Christianity

    Welcome to Tuesday Taylored with God.  


    Theme for the month of March: Made Whole - Made Well - Made New


    Hosts: Joan Taylor of Seeds of Faith Ministries and Pastor Renee Roberts of Latter Rain Family Worship Center (LRFWC)


    Pastor Renee will share a Word on the expression of your feels and what it takes to walk in wholeness. 



    Feel: Your feelings are valid.  Validated feelings are not an excuse to remain in a place of complete emotional dysfunction and it doesn’t justify your inability to move forward.  Stop running and manage your emotions.
    Deal: Confess your brokenness.  Before you let it go, you must let it out.
    Heal: Healing begins with forgiveness.  Forgive yourself and forgive others. All healing is first a healing of the heart. Confront and put an ax to the root of your brokenness.   


    This show is brought to you by Seeds of Faith Ministries a non-profit organization. It’s because of the donations of faithful listeners like you, that we are able minister the Word of God weekly on Blog-Talk Radio. Our mission is to Empower, Encourage, and Enrich the lives of people worldwide to be everything that God has created you to be. Please Sow a Seed, make your donations on joantaylor.org.
