Well, that's exactly what's happening this week on your favorite on-the-air book club! Join Lori and Alice as they examine each image from the poem "Prayer (I)" and reflect on the meaning of prayer in their own lives. What better time than Lent to take a good look at your own prayer life?!
Signs of living against my own truth, how it might offend someone when I am walking in my own power. How would I feel when I love myself.

In this episode of Epilepsy.com's Hallway Conversations, Dr. Joseph Sirven, Professor of Neurology at Mayo Clinic Arizona and Editor-in-Chief of Epilepsy.com, interviews John Hixson, MD about the Policy for Optimal Epilepsy Management (POEM) study.
The overall goal of the study is to improve the self-management practices of U.S. Veterans with epilepsy such as tracking seizures, managing medications and side effects, and engaging with other people with similar concerns about their condition. The results of the study were presented at the 66th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology.
Here you'll learn Gold Tip Four and ask "Whatever Ever Happened To Golf Tip Number Three and Golf Tip Number Two?" But we also offer the strange history of Eggs Benedict — not invented by Benedict Arnold — give you a poem, and remind you of that time you were happy, just driving along, and that certain song came on the radio to ruin it all. Here's the poem:
Peeled Onion Dream Pie
“Just peel the onion,” you told me. “Peel back the
layers and see what you find.” “Nothing,” I replied,
but I was wrong. Nothing was just what I found
there at that very particular point in time.
Now I know an onion is full of space, and space
of course is full of stars. So let’s talk about
observation, seeing time move, and wondering when
and how simple viewing snaked its way through
the amygdala to turn itself into critical thinking.
To make this pie, I suggest you start out with one
perfectly large, unfathomably sweet Vidalia onion.
Peel it back until you all you can see is stars, motion,
and mathematics. Opine to your heart’s desire.
Percolate. Steep overnight. Reflect. And finally
inject just a drop or two of raw emotion to give it
that special zip. Spread this filling warm over a thick
skin of bread dough and caramelized minced onion.
Bake in a wood-fired adobe oven in the darkest heart
of night just north of Nogales while you sing arias with
wild coyotes and breathe in the same stars that I
alone could not see inside the onion.
Serve in a paper bag.
Try to think your way out of it.
Jesse interviews Katy Taylor - who performs original and medieval chant and song that weaves celtic ornamentation with haunting, mystical invocations and prayers.Katy started with school talent shows and singing in chorus, school musicals, and church choirs. During a study-abroad opportunity in Austria in her undergrad years, she acquired a taste for medieval music by singing with Vienna's St. Augustine Church Choir. While living in Vermont in the 90’s, Katy toured with the group Northern Harmony in the United States, Canada, England, and Europe, performing traditional music of all kinds and singing with Peter and Mary Alice Amidon and Tony Barrand. She also sang with the eclectic, traditional music group, the Bayley-Hazen Singers, and with Anima, a medieval women's ensemble. Anima first introduced Katy to the music of 12th c. German mystic Hildegard von Bingen. Katy has recorded 4 of her own CDs, including a Mass commissioned by the Foundation for Universal Sacred Music. Katy sings to feel connected to Truth, Source, the Divine, however you name that. She doesn’t sit down to compose, but often from the inspiration of a poem or a prayer, music rises up within her to become a song. For her, to sing is to channel her particular expression of the Divine into the world. Learn more about Katy at http://www.katytaylor.com/ and http://www.thewingedheart.net/
On Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 4PM EST I have the pleasure of presenting returning guest, esteemed poet and author, Phillip Matthew Roberts. Mr. Roberts has published the acclaimed book, Lost and Found, which contains poetry which as one reviewer said, "..speaks to your senses, your outlook on life, your own life, your philosophies, your principles and prejudices, and so many other aspects of what defines our existence, sometimes all in the same poem." Despite such reviews, Mr. Roberts is humble and a gentleman. He will be joined by his publisher, Susan Joyner Stumpf, who will discuss how this amazing book came to pass. On the same show I am pleased to be welcoming Nicholas Maze, who has written The White Collar Woman series. The last book has recently been published and we will discuss how he came to writing and why he wrote this series. I am always saying that my shows are not to be missed, but I would urge you to listen to this one. I don't think you will be sorry.

Linda Diane Wattley, who is a published writer who began her first work of art with poetry. The poem, "I Wish" appeared in the Poetry Gem of the American Poets Society. For over twelve years she had her own religious/philosophical column in the Frost Illustrated Newspaper titled "The Best Will Show Themselves". In her weekly column, Wattley shared a unique voice revealing her understanding of the heart of God. Heading into her thirteenth year of writing, she realized God had imparted a message to her to share with the world. This message was founded on love and God's desire for His people to know Him individually and wholeheartedly. Knowing the power of words, she writes for readers to experience instant spiritual transformation.
Wattley established her spiritual foundation based on Mat 6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. With this in mind, she acquired knowledge pertaining to God and spiritual matters by reading over a thousand books and counting and of course first and foremost the Bible. Along with this personal search of knowledge, she attended the University of Akron studying courses in Psychology, Sociology and Writing. Her greatest accomplishment is her satisfaction of knowing she was obedient to God.
Wattley has appeared as a contributed writer for the online magazines including: Faith Writers, The Wright Side of Me Productions, The Blessed Room and Cheers where she shared Inspirational and thought provoking messages to readers. She is also a contributing of anthologies: The Triumph of My Soul edited by Elissa Gabriel and This Far by Faith with Vanessa Miller as editor.
