    in Self Help

    LUwJC#030 The Hidden Truth Within Cognitive Dissonance

    Do you seem to have a mental war taking place in your mind?
    Do you want to quiet the conflict playing out in your thoughts?
    Are you contributing to the struggle you are experiencing without realizing it?

    Today on Lighten Up with Jen and Cheri we are talking about Cognitive Dissonance; what is it?, how did it take over our mind? and what do we do about it?

    When we become aware of the discomfort that comes from inconsistent thoughts, beliefs and attitudes we often do everything we can do avoid anything that triggers that specific discomfort. We think we are putting an end to our pain. The problem is we are only avoiding the pain! The Dissonance is still within us, waiting to be unleashed again. What can we do about Cognitive Dissonance? What Truth is hiding within the confusion and frustration it brings?

    Join Jen Halterman and Cheri Gillham as they discuss the innocent training we received at a young age that led to our current experiences with Cognitive Dissonance and give you tools to address what it Now!

    We will also be discussing how NOT to pass this on to our children, clients and other people in our lives that we offer advice, coaching and support to!

    Are Parents REALLY Concerned about what their Child is learning in School?

    in Religion

    The FIGHT continues...I am understanding that this NEW generation (some of which) are not concerned with what is important to their child's ability to learn while they are in school. As many of you know that a few weeks ago our son was FORCED to learn about a Rapper named "Cheif Keith" and his personal life of having trouble with the LAW and Child Support among other things...NOW, some of the students have out launched ANGER in efforts to Promote "Cheif Keith" and they view him as a god....Will this cause a huge MAJOR lawsuit against the School Board or are the Parents at home speaking about this topic among the children, which angers the child enough to pick fights and arguments, this will land a child in Juvenile Hall...Well it is time to Chat!

    This One Step - A Survivor's Healing

    in Christianity

    Polly 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 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 trauma 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.
