Why Are Openly Gay Positive Role Models Important for Children?
Because some children, from a very early age may be aware that they are LGBT. For a child or young person growing up heterosexual there are many positive role models available. Gay people traditionally have tended to shy away from acting as role models, for fear of judgement or discrimination, despite this there are countless LGBT people world wide who act as positive role models in a variety of jobs and situations.
For any child or young person who has LGBT family, friends or may be questioning themselves, it is vital that they see their own lives reflected positively in both the school and the wider community.
WHERE ARE ALL THE ROLE MODELS??? In a time when the current goal of our youth is to appear on a reality show, marry a celebrity and so on; it is a great loss to have such a positive influence depart our society. In the light of our dearly d...eparted Maya Angelou, we will be discussing the lack of positive role models that exist for the children in our community. Tune in this Sunday as we discuss the diminishing state of our children's future.

This Week on What's Right About Men? - Role models for men-are there any?
It has been hypothesized that individuals compare themselves with differing reference groups who occupy the social role to which an individual aspires. If this is true, who are today's role models? Why is it important for any of us to have a role model? And, are role models necessary?

For decades our society has fostered a “low view” of marriage and easy divorce. This series will not only enlarge your vision and understanding of matrimony, but it will deepen your understanding of the incredible love of Christ. This is exactly the kind of “high view” of marriage that is needed in the church and in our culture today!
If you want a role model to help you build a successful marriage, this discussion points you in the right direction. "The Covenant Marriage" examines the concept that God is our marriage role model as it explores the covenant He made with Abram and His descendants and how it relates to marriage.

Margie Lopez Read paintings, and or prints of paintings are traded for a check made out to a worthwhile organization that the buyer and Margie agree upon.
Donation Art Project. Donating all the proceeds of her art to a non-profit.
The ‘trades’ of her paintings have raised funds for many programs including ‘Doctors Without Borders’, ‘UNICEF’, scholarship funds, food for children programs, athletics for the disabled, animal protection programs and other humanitarian aid programs through the world. And it seems to be growing…
"Art is life and not worth much unless it helps make the world just a little bit better in one way or another."
Art has been important to Margie her whole life, influenced in large part by her grandmother Margie Cooper, who was an accomplished painter. Because of her (also her namesake), her parents allowed her significant freedom to partake in all things creative. Margie Lopez Read indulged in a variety of media, techniques and styles – traditional, contemporary, surreal, pop -- all that was around and developing in the 60’s and 70’s. She also did a fair amount of illustration, cartoons and silk screen art with social and political commentary for high school and university newspapers and for movements such as United Farm Workers.
Over the years, she has participated in various art events, both juried and open. Margie has won some ribbons here and there, and has sometimes displayed her work in art galleries. She states, "All of that is fun, but I want my art to do more. You see, I believe that art is at its best when it teaches, records a memory, tells a story, or provokes thought. It is better still if it can be used to raise funds for worthwhile non-profit programs that improve the condition of our world."
