Join host Apostle Natalie Young with " Breaking the Silence " with 'Clothing Designer/Philanthropist and Executive Producer of " Breaking The Silence " Stage Play Quinton de'Alexander " expressing the No Better philosophy of the exciting and avant-garde designer Quinton de’Alexander. Living in New Orleans, an area rich with diversity and culture, Quinton’s curiosity about the clothes and how they were structured was recognized by him and supported by his family at an early age. At eight years old, he saw a sewing machine at a local garage sale and asked if he could have it. Thank goodness for the world of fashion and for those of us who benefit from that world, that young Mr. de’ Alexander was not denied. Quinton began by teaching himself, through trial and error, how to make things. At a rate belying his talent and imagination he saw his first creations within hours of setting up his new “toy” -perfect potholders- an event that sparked the journey of his life’s vocation. Feeding his newfound passion and sit at his Singer sewing machine and recreate garments that he had studied. Without any patterns or formal education in design, he worked at the concept until he got it right. Now due to that unstoppable spirit and determination he demonstrated as a youth, every design created by Quinton is not only right, it’s breath taking! Based in Chicago, Illinois, Quinton is the Founder/President of Chez de ‘Alexander. He has created designs for an impressive range of clientele- from celebrities to small non-profit organizations. He is a strong believer in giving back to the community and has been doing so throughout his career.
After years of working in the banking industry in Central New York, David Homick left his suits behind for a more casual gig as a freelance Web Designer. "I love the creative aspect of my work, which was not something that was encouraged growing up.” Perhaps it is all that pent up creative energy that has motivated him to express himself now between the covers of a book.
It took 54 years for Homick to pick up the pen, or in this case the laptop, and start writing his first novel. That's a lot of life experience to draw on. Much of his inspiration comes from his recent interest in spiritual, metaphysical, and so-called paranormal activity.
His first novel, A Lifetime Last Night, is full of metaphysical wisdom and inspiration that is woven into an intriguing, contemporary love story. One of the underlying themes of the story, as well as his life, was inspired by a favorite quote from George Eliot. "It's never too late to be what we might have been."
A second novel, as yet untitled, is currently in the works. "It's who I am now. I'll never stop writing." Homick dreams of quitting his day job to pursue his writing career full-time.

On today’s show, Beverly will describe the properties of some of the most popular gemstones and crystals. Because our mind is so powerful, when you know the properties of these stones, this knowledge makes them even more powerful and more beneficial, especially when you focus attention on them.
