  • When Bullying Results in Suicide with Beth Saadati on CD Speak UP!

    in Christianity

    Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! when Scott interview Beth Saadati.

    Beth Saadati has sown her time and heart into the lives of hundreds of teens—and reaped an abundance of laughter and life in return. A certified high school English teacher, she is currently teaching composition classes, homeschooling her son (age nine) and daughter (age twelve), and crafting a novel.

    For more than two decades Beth has taught in public school, private school, and home school settings. Jenna, Beth's effervescent firstborn daughter, was her favorite teenage student before Beth lost her, without warning, to suicide resulting from bullying. On January 2, 2013, the world as Beth had known it forever changed. 

    Now, through speaking and writing, Beth encourages others to fight through heartbreak and hurt as she transparently journeys through the painful aftermath of her beloved daughter's death. Four of Beth’s stories have been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul books in 2015. She was also awarded first place in the SC chapter of American Christian Fiction Writers' first five pages contest.

    Beth is working on a young adult novel, Breathe, based on Jenna's true story. At the 2015 Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference (BRMCWC), this book received the BelieversTrust Beyond the Steeple Award for the work deemed to hold the greatest potential to impact a mainstream audience.

    Teenage Phenom, Jilly Anais. Announces Video Release for "Afterparty"

    in Music


    LOS ANGELES, CA – Urban pop music has a new face and a new voice and she goes by the name Jilly Anais. At just nineteen years old, Anais took the music industry by storm in February of 2015 with the release of her debut EP "The Juice". The project was an instant success on soundcloud and also got the attention of major media outlets and mega music producers all over the world.


    Following the success of the EP Anais released her hit single "Afterparty". The song has been a fan favorite both on the radio and in the clubs. "Afterparty" combines gritty pop lyrics with a fun upbeat sound and after just a few weeks and thousands and thousands of plays, Jilly Anais has just announced a music video for "Afterparty".


    Some of the song’s success is because of the all-star cast that collaborated to make this epic track.

    It was co-written by industry veteran Troi Irons, whose credits include Lupe Fiasco, Timbaland, and Rita Ora. Perhaps the biggest person to mention is the producer of the song, music mogul Irvin Whitlow. He is part of the production duo Tha Aristocrats, who are known for their work with Christina Milian and Nicki Minaj.


    The "Afterparty" music video is set to drop in mid-June on Anais’ official Vevo channel. For more on Jilly Anais and to listen and download her music visit www.JillyAnais.com

    in Social Networking

    I'm you host

    Author Sharnel


    Author Alycia Morris,

    Alycia (pronounced Alicia) was born in Oklahoma City but raised in Waco Texas and Dallas Texas by her grandparents. She moved back to Oklahoma City during her teenage years and remained there until she graduated from high school. After graduation Alycia joined the United States Army and enjoyed traveling from South Carolina, Virginia, Alaska and Texas where she finished her military career. She attended the University Of Central Oklahoma where she majored in Sociology. After completing college in 2007 Alycia began working at the Juvenile Detention Center in Oklahoma City. Here is where her writing began; working the overnight shift she had plenty of time to let her imagination pour out on paper. Alycia just looked at it as just a short story never imagining it could become a novel. In 2010 she told her sister about the short story and she convinced Alycia to make it a book. "Nothing New Except Someone New" which is set to be released April of 2015 and "Foul Play" set to be released May of 2015. Raising three kids and working full time she put in the extra work whenever possible.  Zitro Publications has given Alycia not only a chance but they are making my dreams come true and taking her writing scene to an entire new level.

    "Men Talk Monday" Men Who Act Like Boys

    in Family

    We are all just one very slippery step away from stepping down from manhood and making a foolish choice.


    You hear it in the stories of middle-aged women who talk of husbands who decided they weren’t in love any more, and bolted like a colt for their freedom.  Husbands who succumb to the charms of a younger woman.  Husbands who retreat into the same cocoon of self-absorption and irresponsibility that we see in so many adolescents. In other words, these men are caught between manhood and adolescence.  They look like men, but act like teenage boys. In some cases, they live as responsible husbands and fathers for many years, but then they fall back into adolescent behavior.   

    Sometimes the temptation to act like a teenager is temporary—we are all naturally selfish and want our own way.  And sometimes the temptation is more serious, and men make foolish, irresponsible choices that mark the rest of their lives. Fortunately for my friend Dan, he had a friend who stepped into his life and helped keep him from stepping down from manhood when he was 40.
