    Philly's Finest - Coach Eric Taylor

    in Motivation

    HISTORY


     


    Founded in 2012 assisting athletes from South Eastern Pennsylvania improve their football and life skills. This unique opportunity started when a group of young men were turned away from playing a sport they had all grown up loving and playing. Those young men came together along with their parents and decided to form their own team. After presenting their situation to a local football coach they began practicing and competing. Philly’s Finest has quickly become one of the most successful 7v7 programs on the east coast.


     


    MISSION


     


    To serve our community and youth by providing an environment that breeds competition in athletics and education. The athletes are surrounded by positive coaches and mentors that help guide the athletes through the everyday challenges they face on the field, in the classroom, and in their communities. They are provided with guidance throughout each level of education from high school through college. With the high level of college athletes that graduate from our program, we have become experienced in providing a level of guidance and assistance in the college recruiting process. We not only teach the physical aspects of the game but we raise the athletic intelligence level of each of our athletes. Our goal is to bring out the competitor in each of our athletes so they can be successful on the field and in the classroom.


     


    VISION



     An organization that is made up of football, basketball, track, soccer and cheerleading. Education in the college recruiting process is major and must be provided to parents as well as athletes. Our organization plans to provide that education. Competition will not be limited to just athletics. Our youth will compete in academic competitions in the fields of law, medicine, and business. To further prepare them, our goal is to establish strong tutoring, SAT, and ACT programs.

    Saying sounds in the right order in multi-syllable words such as animal, spaghetti, hamburger, consonant



    Handwriting: their letters don’t sit on the line, 

    there may be odd spacing between their words, 
    tall letters are sometimes written as short ones,
    tails don’t always hang below the line, 
    sentences often don’t start with capital letters, and 
    punctuation is often left out.

    Spirituality Means Not Judging and Being Yourself and Answering Psychic Question

    in Spirituality

    As you become more spiritual you will not judge anyone.  Yes, there's a part of human nature within us that observes something first and we make a decision.  I believe that stems from our fight or flight response.  You still have to use your intuition or gut feeling.  That is different. 


    I mean when we first see someone or a situation we subconsciously make a decision based on what we were tuaght.  A good example is seeing a female and male tutoring session.  Often we first think that the man is tutuoring the woman. Many people see a male nurse and they will assume he's a doctor. I've seen this. These are biases and we always need to be aware of them.


    Also I will discuss being yourself.  It doesn't matter what other people think.  We often let other people influence us in our relationships, career and even the way we dress. People will say act lyour age. I don't know what this means. We never should lose the child within.  It's okay to laugh and have fun. It's okay to be goofy at times. It doesn't matter what profession you hold. Also, I will discuss homosexuality, bisexual, transgender and lesbian. When you read for people you need to be able to not think of any of this. When you become spiritual you will understand. 


    I will take your psychic questions as well.  Please read my reviews on Kasamba. I am for real. You can contact me there at http://www.kasamba.com/psychic/mia0899cs prices vary or by email at mia0899cs@gmail.com 


    Love and Light,

    The Angel of Camden, NJ

    in Lifestyle

    Please join host Frankie Picasso and guest Nyzia Easterling on Thursday, April 9th at 1:00 pm EST for The Good Radio Network.


    If I can help somebody, my life has not been in vain....Nyzia Easterling


    Camden , NJ is a city traumatized by violence. It’s higher than average violent crime rate is spiralling out of control  and those who are most affected by this are the children, because in the aftermath, when all is said and done, these children are left parentless and suffering without any hope of a different future. (Camden is rated as # 3 on the Crime index ( out of 100 being the safest) it is safe to say that here is a community that could use some Saving Grace.  


    Enter Nyzia Easterling. Nyzia is no stranger to loss, yet she founded Saving Grace Ministries for the children of her community.  She knew how they suffered from being  parentless, a by product of the violence in which they lived. Nyzia knew their sorrow, and saw their future…. A future of unimaginable difficulty, staring down their mortality with as much awareness as with any other routine coping skill. Something had to be done.


     Says Nyzia “This “new normal” was anything but welcoming, offering up the intangibility of separation amidst an inconceivable reality."  Our mission is to embrace these Victims of Violent Crimes, to erase the negative personification of their unmerited circumstances by engaging them through an amazing ministry we call Saving Grace.”


    Saving Grace Ministry's is a collaborative community focused organization offering, counseling, tutoring, mentoring, life skills, seminars, clothing and more. Please join in this conversation.
