SORT BY Relevancy
Christmas (Christian Mass) is an increasingly popular annual religious tradition of the nativity, which is the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and his legacy of joy of enlightenment, peace on earth, freedom, civility, and unity of all mankind. This custom is celebrated with exchange of gifts, sharing of stories and musical cantata, as well as displays and decorations such asChristmas trees.
Christmas has become the largest annual economic stimulus for many nations around the world. Sales increase dramatically in almost all retail areas and shops introduce new products as people purchase gifts, decorations, and supplies. There are approximately 400 million Christians in Africa who celebrate the Christmas tradition. Although plastic trees and inflatable Santa Claus were popular in Africa, new wealth effect, new level of sophistication, explosion of Christian growth and the influx of foreigners are creating a boom in Christmas tree sales.
Few years ago, Burundi's government banned cutting down of trees to be used for Christmas festivities. The country claimed it had lost enough of its forest cover and could not afford any more trees to be cut down. Join us as we explore the pros and cons in the business and recycling of Christmas trees in Africa.

Birthdays, holidays and other occasions can come at inopportune times when you are dating. Maybe you started dating a few weeks before Christmas…or Valentine’s Day. (Yikes!) Maybe you aren’t sure if it’s too soon to invite your new boyfriend or girlfriend to be your date for a pal’s destination wedding, your family party, or your own birthday get-together.
Here’s how to tell if you can make someone your “plus one” and how to tackle gift giving when relationships are still new.
Inspiration Empowerment & BREAKTHROUGH!/ w/ Dr. Beverly L. Swanson A LIVE Radio Talk Show of Real People Sharing Real Stories of Great Trials & Great Faith
JOIN ME and my Featured Guest Minister Deborah Walker Minister of Prayer at Oasis Church in Rancho Cordova Califonia. Minister Deborah is sharing her Thankfulness to God the Father for her and her children miracuously surving the Castophic attack of Hurricane Katrina August 29, 2005.
On August 29, 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans La at category 5. My daughters and I left 14 hours before storm came.
We drove to Hattiesburg Mississippi which was 2 hours away and it took us almost 8 hrs to arrive at our destination thinking we were not going to be affected as much. After Hurricane Katrina struck Hattiesburg Miss. We could not leave the house because big trees were in the middle of street and some landed on houses. We were stuck in that city for four days. There was no electricity, no running water, and we could not use our cell phones, and the temperature was extremely hot. It was by grace of God how we made it out. I'm greatful that we survived. Through the power of prayer and God's faithfulness the storm could not touch my prayer partner's home. SEE YOU on The AIR!

Good morning Baltimore, I pray that all of you are having a blessed and wonerful morning today. As I said you guys are going on a ride with me as I'm emailing back and forth and calling back and forth with Purposely Created Publishing as we're, not just me, you and I are embarking on the makeover of my first novel, my first baby, the thing I worked on for over three year.....lol...I know I sound like a mother. Hey you guys take nine months...lol… was slow, my book REDISCOVERING KIA. I'm making the payment, uploading my file, my baby, and she will be in the oven for less than a month and will be available on eBook on December 17, 2015. Are you just excited as I am.
When we're embarking on a new venture, it's not easy. But I have to step up my game. When you meet someone new, and they have the ability and credentials behind their name, then take that chance. I've seen Tie just this week launch another author on her platform. That just makes me more excited for what I'm about to do. Please keep me in prayer because I want to be patient. The Word says “be still and know that I am God,” and that's what I want to do. Everyone at Purposely Created Publishing has been so good to me and that's why I did the video. Oh yea, I updated that video as well so check out the [NEW] TMITM CELEBRATING AUTHORS THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON 2015.
But let's not forget we still have one more show for this November. Please join me November 27, 2015 at 9 PM as we welcome Ms. Flora Carter. She's a survivor of Domestic Violence and she's going to tell her story and answer your questions. Pass the word around so we can make her feel welcome to The Man In The Mirror Platform.
This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse
Wednesdays we talk about finding support after breaking our silence.
Polly Moore grew up with six siblings in Mobile, Alabama, but was only 8 years old when her father died of lung cancer. Soon two neighborhood boys began to molest her, friends of her older twin brothers. A couple of years later she was assaulted by another neighbor and later by her older brother. She was able to break away from the abuse at the age of twelve, but was by then deep in the darkness of isolation. Polly is now a mother and grandmother, and has lived in Atlanta for the past 15 years. She is contemplating returning to finish her final year at Western Carolina University where she majored in Accounting, and has become a devoted advocate for adult survivors of Child Sexual Abuse.
She began her organization, This One Step, to help older survivors of Child Sexual Abuse deal with the trama of being part of what she has named, "The Unknown Generation" A generation of survivors who had nowhere to go for support. In her late teens she began writing as a coping mechanism to deal with the PTSD. Her three books, "Cider Blocks and Oven Racks", "Billy Wayne's Christmas Train" and "The Unknown Generation" will be available in early 2016. She has written many southern short stories which have been published in different publications. She is now hosting her own blogtalk radio show Monday through Friday beginning at 6:00am.
As we approach the holiday season, we tend to focus on things that are important to us: health, family, etc. What are some things you're thankful for this holiday season?
We'll discuss that, Black Friday, and we'll also ask: when exactly does the holiday season start? After Halloween? Black Friday? When?
These things and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show! "No experts. Just opinions."
Show No. 542
Scheduled for 180 mins.
