SORT BY Relevancy
Several years ago a dear friend and mentor of mine died suddenly. I never got a chance to tell him how important he was to me. I am not alone. Many people never get around to thanking the people who made a major difference in their lives.
Walter Green is not one of them. He never has to worry about expressing gratitude to those who had an impact in his life. Over the course of one year, Green traveled around the country on a "Journey of Gratitude" and thanked 44 men and women who gave him a helping hand at various stages of his life. He said he wanted to tell these men and women how much they mattered to him before anyone’s health or life was compromised and the opportunity slipped away.
For 25 years Green was the Chairman and CEO of Harrison Conference Services, a leading conference center management company. Since selling his company, he has mentored young adults and is actively involved in several non-profit organizations. He lives with his wife Lola in San Diego.
Join me on Thursday, June 11 from 10:00-10:30 a.m. (PDT) as I talk to Walter Green about thanking the mentors in your life.
We will discuss the value of having an experienced mentor, and the importance of being a mentor to help guide future leaders.
As usual, we will also discuss two delicious recipes for sharing. The "safe" recipe will be Balsamic Onion and Goat Cheese Pasta, and the "adventure" recipe will be Seafood Potato Bake.
Was your loved one in any branch of the service during wartime? That does not mean the front line, just in the service for 90 days during this time. Renee Pace, the State Veterans Service Officer, with the State Of Colorado, Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, stated, "This program is to help low income, to pay for their personal health care needs. It may be in home care, assisted living or long term care, originally known as a nursing home."

God provides spiritual mentors to disciple us, so that we in turn can disciple others, a spirtual mentor trains us to train others.one of the greatest joy of a spiritual mentor is to see there disciple turn around and begin mentoring others. paul told his disciple timothy that the things timothy learned from paul should be taught to others. whether you are looking for a spiritual mentor or seeking to be one for someone else.in reading the book of 1 Thessalonians which is a great book from which to draw out principles of spirtual mentoring we can see that paul uses the way we treat one another as christians

This week's episode focuses on how mentors have helped me throughout the years from my days in seminary and throughout my career as an ordained Minister. I feel my mentors in ministry helped me navigate the ups and downs of parish ministry and has been valuable as I entered the world of business. I will also discuss a three year program I completed for new Pastors, which also helped me thrive in ministry.
One of my passions is creating a mentorship program for entrepreneurs. I will discuss how a program like this can help entrepreuners learn the tricks of the trade so they may be able to master any situation they encounter in their business.
Mentors taught me that my formal education wasn't intended to give me the answers, but that it would give me the skills to find the answers for myself; That the time to quit is when it isn't fun anymore; That my work is serious, but I shouldn't take myself too seriously.
What I learned from Mentors is that it doesn't matter where you come from as much as where you are headed.
Something to think about: The printing press was invented when over 90% of the population of Europe was unable to read or write.
Warrior Talk Radio with GI Jenn & Lance Taylor will be discussion the Confederate Flag issue, the VA Comedy hour (yeah... we are sharing the most outrageous VA stories) and then we will be talking with Carmelo Rodriguez from Veterans Transition.
Jenn and Lance will discuss the recent call for the Confederate Flag to be banned, along with the historical statutes and memorials. We invite those opposed and supporting the ban to discuss. Then we will be sharing some off the wall situations we have experienced. Our listeners are invited to call in and share their stories, as well!
Carmelo Rodriguez works with the Veterans Transition/vetdocseries on FB. He started to film a reality show series about the transition from military life to civilian and all the struggles that's comes with it. He is a veteran who served in the U.S. Army for about 5 years. Carmelo was medically discharged because of an injury sustained while deployed. He served as a Calvary Scout team leader, ending his career on funeral honors detail. He went through similar issues our other veterans have faced, including divorce, alcohol abuse, nightmares, unemployment, and foreclosure.
Carmelo started this reality show series because he wanted our vets to know that they are not alone, as well as, allowing our communities to see and understand what vets are really going through. If done properly, he believes his show will not only bring the problems to light but will also bring a solution to fix them. His over all goal is to bring this show to a mainstream network because we are a huge community and I want the rest of America to see that all of our veterans are not "crazy" or "homeless". Some of our guys just need more help then others. I want to identify who we are, what we are doing and how we are helping each other.
