On December 4, 2014, Tami Harris explained their program to facilitate spiritual life in Heritage School in Utah, a secular Therapeutic Boarding School and Residential Treatment Center for adolescents. Tami is the school's Director of Spiritual Care and their Chaplain. In this interview she describes her mission to give all students the opportunity to grow in their spiritual life in addition to the emotional growth and therapeutic healing which is the overall mission of Heritage School. Participation is not required, but most of the students decide on their own to either practice their own religion they were raised in, or to sample other practices of religions they are not familiar with. The goal is to make sure this spiritual and religious opportunity is available. The latest addition is the first Kosher Kitchen in a RTC in the country for their Jewish students. This joins the regular Catholic Mass on campus, various Protestant denominations services and non-denominational service opportunities that are spiritual in the sense of giving.

Today's guest is Sullivan Phillips and his story is about being a troubled youth, with loving parents who couldn't reach him. Sullivan was then kicked out of school and forced to leave his home to be placed in boarding school. The same year as he faced this life changing moment he lost his father. This was a moment in time that shaped Sullivan like never before and propelled him to go onto to play professional soccer/basketball for a total of 14 years. Join No Box Thinking Radio as we discuss the twist and turns of Sullivan's life of growing up with a father who was a minister and mother who was a teacher. This placed his life on a jouney of ups and downs to led to marriage, rebatiptism, closer walk with God and becoming a citizen who positively impacts society with his story.
Twelve-year-old Jacob Dewitt suffers deeply at the hands of his resentful stepfather. In the midst of family chaos, he's shipped off to boarding school. Years later, when the school expels him, sixteen-year-old Jacob believes he can't go back home. Alone on the streets of Pittsburgh, Jacob lies about his age and assumes a new identity. Intelligent and ambitious, he soon gets recruited by the city's crime organization. Yearning for acceptance, Jacob embraces his new family and street life. He grows up fast. It doesn't take long for the big boss to discover Jacob's talents. Despite his rising status, Jacob yearns for a righteousness the streets can't provide. To fill the void, he attends the local university and uses his gifted knowledge about the Bible to encourage his crew. Word of mouth spreads and miraculous things happen to the people he helps. Unfortunately, Jacob discovers that church and crime are an unholy union. Alternating between the fictional town of Edgeboro, North Carolina in 1976 and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the early 1980's, Jacob must choose between leaving the street family that embraced him and seeking a legitimate life with the family that disowned him.

ABOUT THE SHOW
It is a known fact the USA gets a big fat “F” for poor sex education in schools! Let’s face it, the CDC states that 1 out of every 4 new HIV infections reported is a young human life between the ages of 13 and 24! Regardless of your beliefs in sex education (abstinence only or more comprehensive approaches) this nation is facing a serious public health crisis and something has to be done about it! So we are bringing to you two amazing young high school leaders who are paving the way for HIV prevention and awareness in their high school! Attention school administrators and educators across the nation: you might just learn something and start an HIV Awareness Club in your school! We will talk about issues facing teens and we will offer some profound, successful solutions! So get ready! Pack your lunch (or in this case dinner) and join us on February 7, 2016 - 9 PM (EST) / 8 PM (CST), because we are all going back to school!
ABOUT OUR GUESTS
Ewuraba Annan and Jimmy Demiro are the co-Presidents of the Staten Island Technical High School HIV/AIDS Awareness Club! Under their dedicated leadership, the members of this club work to educate students about safer sex, while simultaneously working to eradicate HIV-related stigma! Every year they are tasked with bringing in speakers who are living with HIV to share personal experiences. These students, while on their way out to college to continue their mission to empower youth to make healthier life choices, will share their experiences as co-Presidents of their school’s HIV Awareness club, share their insight about what’s really happening “behind closed doors” and what they believe are the solutions needed to change the public health crisis of HIV.
With so many different personalities in schools, as parents, we often find ourselves dealing with social problems or other conflicts our children are having with their peers. With the child’s attention being focused on the problem, learning is often compromised. Join the APS teachers as we explore this topic and share tools that can change the difficulties and struggles children sometimes have with their peers.
Topics: #In-Love with #Life, #Live for #Coupleness, #Fear #Death, Give ONLY to Other #Givers, Verify #Girl/Boy #Friends Story.

As a writer, and wedding DJ music has inspired me to write heartfelt stories and tragic poems. I have seen how the words of songs can affect the sick and depressed, and how a stirring movie score can make or break a movie scene. Music tells the story of the songwriter and the world around them. It lives with us and inside of us. Music calls people to praise God, and asks you to question accepted norms. Throughout the history of music, songs have been with us in times of war and peace, in school and when we fall in and out of love. Your favorite song always holds a place in your heart, and as this world changes so does our music. Join the BigEfromMo show on sudden impact online radio network, as host Erik Harper takes you on a musical journey. See where your favorites rank all time and find out about some you should know but probably don't. More songs will be played on this show than ever before. At 10pm CST.
Come sing along, and remember where you were when that song came on your car radio. Or rememeber when your mom and dad listened to that song over and over again, and now that song is stuck in your memory.
