PT 2 OF THE STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: WHO IS EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN ? ASK THE QUESTION OF DO WE REPLY ON TO MANY OUTSIDE FORCES TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EDUCATION OF OUR CHILDREN OR IS IT OUR DUTY AS PARENTS TO SIT DOWN AND TEACH OUR CHILDREN NOT ONLY MORAL THIINGS BUT AS TO TEACH THEM THE BASICS OF ABC, MATH, SCIENCE, ENGLISH, AND PH.

Welcome to today's episode of Soul Matters Radio, where Barbara Patterson talks to Ursula Shepherd about one of her passions.
Ursula has launched a project and entered a competition with Virgin Media Business to raise awareness for a vital topic in our world: Protecting our children.
Ursula's vision is to develop tools, training and resources to protect children and prevent abuse by:
increasing confidence, awareness and capability;
removing stigma and fear;
eradicating complacency and ignorance as well as teaching life skills.
We invite you to support this project by voting online using this link:
Also, Ursula would love you to get in touch with her for any ideas, suggestions, questions and additional support.
The network is growing fast, be a part of it!
Join us on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. in morning for a conversation with the Founder of "The Feed Our Children Ministries, Pastor Moses Brown. Feed Our Children Ministries is committed to being a source of support to economically disadvantaged children and their families, the homeless, and the elderly. The vision of FOC Ministries is to equip each individual we contact with the tools necessary in realizing their unlimited potentials. To leave no one hungry physically or spiritually and to enable each one we serve with the ability to serve someone else in need.
With an immediate goal to restore the families of each individual served, the long term goals of FOC Ministries are a return back to the community of individuals and families served to provide assistance to other families in need. To acquire a homeless shelter and be able to service more families with our products and services and to provide food shelter for orphans in third world countries as well as other services.
The food is given to the people at no cost to them. Further, the purpose of the food program is to feed the poor, not to grow our church. The food provided generally consists of fresh produce, cereals, breads, packaged goods, juices, canned goods, snacks, chips, candies, etc. The food boxes (usually a combination of boxes and bags) normally contain between 30-50 pounds of these food items.
HERE WE DISCUSS HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN FROM EVEN THE THINGS THAT WE CAN NOT SEE. HOW IT IS EQUALLY IMPORTANT TO BE MINDFUL OF THE PEOPLE YOU HANG AROUND, THE THINGS YOU EXPOSE YOUR FAMILY TOO AND YOUR OWN MENTALITY WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS. THERE ARE ENERGIES ON THE PLANET THAT ARE EVIL AND OPPORTUNISTIC AND DO NOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE YOUNG. IN FACT, MANY EVIL SPIRITS PREFER YOUNG SOULS. WALK WITH ME AS WE TAKE A JOURNEY INTO THE REALM OF UNDERSTANDING OUR ROLE AS PARENTS AND CAREGIVERS WHEN IT COMES TO THE SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF OUR CHILDREN,
With all of the recent national uprisings, that stemmed from what has been proven in most of the cases, to be blatant miscarriages of justice, steps have been taken to rectify said injustices. But, as it too often occurs, for every step foward that takes place, a step backwards will also. Unfortunately, this reality has hit home for myself, and the residents of Decatur, Al. Over this past weekend, a group of 3 youths and 1 adult went on a crime spree that led to robbery, assaults, and murder, hence the reason for this special Monday night broadcast. I'm imploring everyone to take part in this broadcast, as we discuss ways to RECLAIM OUR YOUTH.
Living in the south, with all its charms, traditions and iconography does not offer access into certain aspects of her history, especially when that history involves discussions around the Civil War and the Confederacy. The inability to rake through the smoldering ashes of a war fought 150 years ago, allows for a one-sided narrative that sometimes misrepresents the causes for war, the people - enslaved and free - who lived through the war and and its aftermath. Although it is a necessary, and some might add, long overdue undertaking, it is also anxiety ridden, especially within the black community.
How can parents of color approach this subject and explain to their children a war fought over, among other things, a system of that relegated their ancestors to permanent servitude?
Today, the Mommy Chronicles is on site as the Alabama State University Department of History and Political Science explores those issues by examining the Civil War history at its first Confederate Memorial Day "Mini" Conference.
HOW DO WE COMBAT THE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL ILLNESSES OF OUR PEOPLE? LET'S SEE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT OUR PEOPLE'S PROBLEMS.

There is so much to talk about when it comes to spirituality. Which ofcourse means that we reached out to expert Dr. Rosie Kuhn for a third time! Luckily for all of us, she agreed to continue our conversation which we started with her multiple shows ago. This time she will help us address questions like:
What is spirituality?
Why is this an important topic for parents, grandparents, and for all of us?
What are some ways to clarify values for ourselves and our children?
How can we be in the world in such a way that children will follow our lead, and cultivate within themselves spiritual values and competencies?
It's All For the Children
Children are the inheritance of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. Please consider the enormous responsibility involved in raising children in righteousness. There is no greater task required of man than to lead children in the right path and provide everything necessary for their growth and protection. God requires parents to raise their children in the fear of God and to protect them from all harm. But what are people to do when the culture and society is making room for things that debase and demoralize people? The present generations are witnessing terrible crimes and abuses of children and this is the rotting of the whole of society.
There will be no call-ins until the last 15 minutes of the show. Visit itccs.org
