    Episode #5: Are you a Scanner?

    In her book, Refuse to Choose award-winning author Barbara Sher talks about “scanners”; people who have so many interests that they’re unable to choose only one. According to Sher, scanners aren’t dilettantes or undisciplined, and they don’t change interests because of A.D.D. or a fear of success. “They seem to be highly intelligent, multi-talented people who need to have more interests than the average person.” As you can imagine, this topic really hit a nerve with people when the book was published and caused a huge sigh of relief from many wonderful individuals struggling to make sense if their scanner-wired life (gasp!). 

    Join your hosts, Mildred Lynn and Madonna MacInnis as they share their personal insights and real life stories about the amazing world of scanners (or to use another term “multi-potential-ites”).  You’ll also enjoy their heart-centered exploration of three key questions: "What is a scanner?", "What isn’t a scanner?”,  and "How do you navigate life (feel good about yourself) from a scanner perspective?”. You’ll love it!

    Laquan McDonald And The Racism Cold War.

    in Entertainment

    Racism is a cold war. 

    As those who have enjoyed the cold war are growing frustrated with more and more people finding out it exists, we're seeing a desparation for it to heat and be an open and honest hot war. 

    Let's dig into it. 

    You can sign up to push us forward and we super appreciate it right here. 

    We also gladly take one time investments donated to the paypal link right here. 

    Raeisha Williams,
    communications chair of the Minneapolis NAACP, shocked CNN when she told reporter Brooke Baldwin that Black Lives Matter has in essence indicted the Minneapolis Police Department in the shooting of five people during a protest early Tuesday morning.

    Williams said:

    “We’re hearing two [arrests] at this time, but we don’t necessarily trust that. We know that the police department is behind this, this is our personal belief after receiving witness accounts.”

    It's A MInd Thing! Release Your Power Through Meekness!

    in Religion


    Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that working in us (Ephesians 3:21). All power belongs to him. In order to access the power of God, that God has put in us, we have to humble our spirit. Put on the spirit of meekness, allowing God to be that power working within in you. It is because of Him that we move, we live, and we have our being (Acts 17:28). It is through God’s Spirit we have access to His power. Ye shall have power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you (Acts 1:8). What is the power that you humble yourself under? God gives us power to gain wealth to establish his covenant (Deuteronomy 8:18). Josiah became king at eight years old. He knew not to follow his father’s footsteps, who served idols and not the true God. The prophetess Huldah was the influence that helped him develop a God-fearing heart. His great grandfather was Hezekiah, who loved and served God. Just as Josiah found a God-fearing person to follow, we have that same opportunity to choose whom we will follow. Josiah’s reign as king was never about following and pleasing the people. Through meekness, he was a powerful King that pleased his God!

                           It’s All About Him and Not About Them!
