    in Books

    Join Latrivia Nelson and Bruce Welch as they discuss Highness, the 5th book in the Lonely Heart Series.  Call in and ask your questions, give your feedback or simply add to the conversation. 


    There is no truer cliché for Prince Michael than love is blind.


    As the world’s most beautiful man, he has given up his previous title of royal playboy and asked Duchess Thalia to marry him, but when she confesses to loving the crown more than him, he breaks up with her and causes a very public scandal.


    Prince Richard, the older brother who is forced to fix everything after his brother breaks it, thinks Michael has been spoiled too much and proposes an experiment. Go away under an assumed name and live as a commoner to get a better perspective on life and to get out of the crosshairs of public opinion.


    Picking a location proves to be tricky but the clever pair decide on the last place in the world anyone would expect a Prince of England to be… Mississippi.


    Using a fake American accent, Michael nestles into his new home determined to find peace and get his life back on track. But when the prince delivers the mail to the next door neighbor, he experiences firsthand how love at first sight feels.


    Hope Daniels, a local artist, was recently the victim a car accident. Temporarily blinded and trying to get her own life in order, she falls for the prince on their first meeting. Thinking his is just a kind neighbor, she soon discovers that he’s the man of every girl’s fantasies.


    Will love be enough to keep the prince and the artist together or will their paths in this life tear them apart?


    Read Highness (Part 1), the fifth book in national bestselling author Latrivia Nelson’s Lonely Heart series.


    P.S. No cliffhanger. This is a full book with a second part.

    in Politics Conservative

    WE AMERICANS ARE VERY SPOILED.  NO MATTER WHAT DISASTROUS SITUATIONS WE MIGHT SEE AROUND US, WE ALWAYS ASSUME THAT IT CAN'T HAPPEN TO US.  UNFORTUNATELY, ONCE THE DISASTER STRIKES, IT IS OFTEN TOO LATE TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND WE BECAME DEPENDENT UPON THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP US.


    WE'VE SEEN ALL TOO OFTEN THAT THE PEOPLE WHO COME OUT OF TRAGEDY THE FASTEST ARE THE ONES WHO DEVELOP A PLAN OF ACTION FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.  THEY ARE READY AS MUCH AS THEY CAN BE AND THE DISASTER IS OF MUCH LESS CONSEQUENCE.  LIVES ARE SAVES, LIFE IS ABLE TO GO ON AND THE ENSUING HARD WORK TO RECOVER IS MUCH MORE MANAGEABLE.  AFTER ALL, WHEN WE'RE OUT OF FOOD, WATER AND BASIC SHELTER IT IS HARD TO SURVIVE FOR LONG.


    TODAY THE TYPES OF POTENTIAL DISASTER FACING US HAVE GROWN SIGNIFICANTLY. IN ADDITION TO FLOODS, HURRICANES, TORNADOES AND EARTHQUAKES, WE NOW SEE AN INCREASE IN MOB RIOTING ACTION, THREATS FROM FOREIGN ENTITIES WHO TRULY HATE AMERICA AS WELL AS THE POTENTIAL FOR A DEADLY AIR ASSAULT WHICH EVEN INCLUDES AN EMP BURST.


    IN THIS EPISODE OF NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS, MARK COLLIER JOINS ME TO TALK ABOUT THE THINGS WE NEED TO DO TO BE PREPARED FOR THAT HORRIBLE EVENT THAT WE HOPE NEVER HAPPENS.  BUT LIFE CHANGES RAPIDLY, SO IT'S IMPORTANT TO PLAN AHEAD.  JOIN ME, JAMES DICK, YOUR HOST WITH NORTH FLORIDA WRITER TALKS FOR WHAT I AM SURE WILL BE A ROUSING DISCUSSION.  DON'T BE FEARFUL, JUST REALIZE THE CHALLENGES OUT THERE AND DO YOUR PART TO BE READY.  FOR IN THE FIRST PERIOD OF TIME AFTER A DISASTER, YOU ARE REALLY ON YOUR OWN.  GET YOUR "GAME PLAN" READY. SELF PRESERVATION IS AN INDIVIDUAL AND FAMILY MATTER.  YOU OWE IT TO YOUR LOVED ONES TO DO WHAT YOU MUST TO CARE FOR THEM.

    "A MORE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY"

    in Christianity

    When trials arise that seem unexplainable, we should not allow our peace to be spoiled. However unjustly we may be treated, LET NOT PASSION ARISE. By indulging a spirit of retaliation we injure ourselves. We destroy our own confidence in God, and grieve the Holy Spirit. THERE IS BY OUR SIDE A WITNESS, a heavenly messenger, WHO WILL LIFT UP FOR US A STANDARD AGAINST THE ENEMY. He will shut us in with the bright beams of the Sun of Righteousness. BEYOND THIS SATAN CANNOT PENETRATE. HE CANNOT PASS THE SHIELD OF HOLY LIGHT. – {COL 171.3}

    The Smoking Glass Hour with Baron Glass

    in Social Networking

    7:30 PM - 


    Haley Ellerbe is 18 years old a senior at Caldwell Parish High School. She has been riding since she was 10 years old. Her first horse was an 8 year old grade mare.


    Haley learned to ride and basic horseman ship skills on her. Haley began to attend the Columbia play days and competed in all events. She won all around cowgirl her second year of riding and also won the cowboy extreme challenge when she was 12 years old.


    Then it was time to upgrade and my mom bought me my first true barrel horse a 6 year old bay mare when I was 13. Her name was Fancy. I junior high rodeo for one year and decided I like jackpot barrel runs and local rodeos better.


    Fancy was good at her job but I had out grown her and my mom bought me my true love. A flea bit grey gelding name Flash like Jack aka Speckles. He and I have won the teenage youth and open barrel division for the last 3 years in the Northeast Louisiana Rodeo Association.


    I have 16 belt buckles and my biggest check from chasing cans is $890 for a 16 second run.


    Speckles usually runs in the 1d or 2d division at jackpot barrel runs. He has his own unique way of chasing cans. He slides in on his back end and digs out with his front end. Believe me if you aren't holding the saddle horn when he turns you will go right off his back end. I love this horse. He gives his all whether he is sore from a long weekend of running or from being out of shape. This horse will never have another home. He is spoiled and loves to eat French Fries, and butter cookies.


    8:30 PM - Join us as we discuss The Drug War, Mass Incarceration and Race. How it continues to destroy communities across the Country.

    in Lifestyle

    There has been a lot of chatter lately about the decline of America.  The fingers point to our economic problems, our international profile, our racial divide, and, of course, to America’s boisterous and spoiled children.The fact is, that on this planet, as bad as it gets here in America, we still set the standard for a functional free society, a legacy that we want to pass on to our kids. But how do we, in this world of “everything now”, rear the children that will carry on the exception that is the American culture.  How do we make our kids winners in complex world of turmoil and technology? Donna Carol Voss, is now a stay-at-home mom. But, to quote her honest reflection: “I am a woman with a past.” That is not only the opening line of her memoir “One Of Everything” but also the centerpiece of her hang-on-hands-on life experience that makes her a very capable mom…. and an articulate writer. 


    Donna Voss’s life experience is eclectic. She is a Berkeley grad, a stay-at-home mom, a former pagan, and a devout Mormon. She is a fifty-something homemaker who has written a memoir, One of Everything, that is sure to provoke everyone about something  is due for release in May, 2015 and is available for presales on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.com
