THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Do you communicate with clarity and confidence, when you pick up the telephone? Are you routinely asked to repeat what you are asking? How long does it take for you to write down your thoughts or compose an important message? How confident are you that others are able to understand you when you speak? Many of us are unable to communicate with clarity and confidence even though we have outstanding business and life skills. Whether it’s telling a good story, writing a winning proposal or explaining to your teenager why life requires a series of good decisions, your ability to communicate with confidence and clarity plays an important role in your level of success. The good thing is that both written and verbal communications skills can be developed and improved. The key is learning how you can consistently communicate with confidence.

Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator as she interviews Dr. Joan Steidinger on the publishing of her book, Sisterhood in Sports: How Female Athletes Collaborate and Compete.
Dr. Steidinger came up with the idea for this book two decades ago and her first proposal was submitted three years later. As a psychologist, she noticed that women were getting short shrift for their focus on relationships from an emotional perspective. Understanding women has been one of the major difficulties for men and even some female coaches. She wanted to write a book that would honor female athletes instead of penalizing them for showing their emotions.

Baseball, History, Baseball Facts
Since Babe Ruth joined the New York Yankees in the 1920s, America has been intrigued with baseball sluggers and teams that stuff the middle of their batting order with power. Even today, sports fans flip to ESPN to see who hit the dingers of the day. Yes, we like to see great catches and outstanding pitching performances, but it’s the home runs we live for. The 1960s was a decade of some of the greatest slugging combinations in baseball history. From Maris and Mantle to McCovey and Mays, the decade’s memories will live forever!
Meet author Jasma Starks. I'll be interviewing her on the show about her new book, Purpose Will Prevail: Principals To Activate And Walk In Your Divine Purpose.
About the book:
Your purpose was the catalyst for your birth. Prior to being conceived in your mother’s womb, your life already had meaning. Because we’re human, however, we were bound to sin and become victims of fear. Sin separates us from God, fear keeps us limited to living unfilled lives, and both subjects us to silence. When silent, we allow the enemy to bully us and keep us in bondage.Before purpose can be born or released, there is a process. Purpose Will Prevail walks you through that process by giving you a set of principles that will help you acknowledge your authority and loosen the grips of fear and addiction so that you are freed to activate and walk in your divine purpose. In this book, Jasma Starks challenges each of us to take full responsibility in aligning our lives with that of God’s word so that we may not only discover our purpose, but fulfill and protect it as well.
About the author:
A powerful prayer warrior, Jasma Starks has the remarkable ability to make God’s word plain and understandable. With a heart to spread the gospel throughout the world and elevate the name of Jesus Christ, she has devoted her life to teaching this generation of believers how to hear the voice of God and align their ways with His in order to take their lives from mediocre to meaningful.
Currently residing in St. Louis, Missouri, Jasma seeks, wholeheartedly, to please God in all her ways while implementing progressive change in her circle of influence. In March of 2015, she birthed Purpose will Prevail to activate passionate people to walk in their divine purpose. For more information, be sure to visit www.JasmaStarks.com.
