Join us this coming Wednesday (Sept 10th) at Noon ET on Women Warriors as we discuss the topic of “What Afghan Women Warriors Can Teach Us” with our special guest Peggy Kelsey. Peggy will talk about what she has learned from her studies and work with these Afghan women. I know we can take away some great tips from these women warriors so don’t miss our show.
Peggy Kelsey received degrees in social work and education before undertaking extensive world travels. A professional photographer and resident of the Austin area since 1980, Peggy was privileged to meet with a delegation of 14 Afghan women who passed through Austin, Texas in the fall of 2002. The strength, humor and resiliency of the women she met was contrary to the media image (at the time) of Afghan women as helpless victims. This dichotomy inspired Peggy to create the Afghan Women’s project and in August and September of 2003, Peggy spent 6 weeks in Afghanistan and returned with portraits and stories of 40 Afghan women.
She now travels around the country sharing her exhibit and slide presentations. In April of ‘07, she traveled to Jordan to do a similar project with Iraqi refugee women and in the spring of 2010 returned to Afghanistan for two and a half months. Her latest book, Gathering Strength: Conversations with Afghan Women, is now available. Visit her website at http://www.kelseys.net to find out more.

SUICIDE: WHAT ABOUT THOSE LEFT BEHIND?
We’ve all known a friend of a friend, or a family member, or even a celebrity who shocked and dumbfounded us because of his or her suicide. Your children may have school friends who have contemplated or carried out a suicide. Maybe a relative left you wondering for the rest of your life what you could have done. Perhaps you have had thoughts of killing yourself. Not a happy topic, for sure, but one which can affect all of us.
September is suicide awareness month, so this is a perfect time to discuss this topic and find out more about the whys and guilt that can accompany it.

Dr. Harkavy-Friedman received her B.A. in Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Florida.

Local issues took center stage in the statewide debate from the beginning. The evening’s first question, in the first debate for governor held in the Rio Grande Valley, came from Monitor editor Carlos Sanchez and asked the candidates about the reputation of the Valley after a surge of statewide law enforcement descended on the region. a in saying she would listen more closely to local leaders.
Wendy Davis reintroduced Abbott’s comments earlier this year — unpopular in the Valley — comparing South Texas corruption to a third-world country.a in saying she would listen more closely to local leaders. Then she reintroduced Abbott’s comments earlier this year — unpopular in the Valley — comparing South Texas corruption to a third-world country.
“Mr. Abbott, these cuts and the cuts that you’re defending that have left our classrooms overcrowded, that have left our teachers laid off, that’s not liberal, that’s not conservative, it’s just dumb,” Wendy Davis
Abbott brought up a local issue once more before the end of the debate. Arguing for his position in favor of strong voter ID laws, the attorney general referenced the federal indictment against two women in Hidalgo County who, according to an FBI complaint, traded cocaine for votes in the 2012 Democratic primary.
Carlos Sanchez of the Monitor said the clear winners were voters in the Valley. Other organizers agreed, with a nod toward even further electoral power in the region in future elections. The Monitor
The life coach, John Davis Marshall, along with other spiritual minded people of God, discuss how God seeks to lead women to do wondrously well. Individuals and groups have their views of family. Most often, the view is a “law” view. Even, the most conscientious compassionate ones host a law view of family. God has a view. Always, His view is a “grace” view. And as always, His view is the best view. Join with us in a discussion forum of life-enriching topics that will help us to do wondrously well according to a grace view. Indeed it is true, a better you begins with a grace view of God!

What do we women want?
And can the question ever be satisfactorly answered? I am sure we know, however, no single answer can ever apply for the whole. And there in lies the 'situation'.
Tonight we return to our original program format; "What Women Want" ... Each topic under that may change week to week. Tonight it is ... 'Blurred Lines' .... What Is Off Limit?
Join in the discussion on communicating in relationships, and understanding the 'posture' in dealigs or personal interactions with other women and men.
Why is it the one thing that we desire most... which is interacting in intimate relations... is the very thing we seem to know the very least about?
Why can't we all just get along?
Has the game changed? Or does age or maturity effect the outcome or demise?
Join us tonight as we Get LIVE After Dark!
And also be sure to stay tuned in as we introduce a new segment called The Executive Corner... a little later in the show. Have questions? Want to share answers? Come on in... the water is fine!
Call in number is...(714) 333-3306 and wait for the prompts to speak with the hosts!

"This Week's Topic”:
Do Men Shop For Sex, While Women Shop For Relationships?...But do men in-turn pay for sex with relationships, and thus women pay for relationships with sex?!?
With this in mind, should women not shop for relationships so blatantly?!? Considering men don't do it, and thus are generally turned off by the idea of it. Although, men do regularly subscribe to, value, respect, honor, etc relationships they are in, but they generally come about in the most organic fashions, vs “shopping” for them. So what's the most affective way to sync-up the two genders for the purpose of relationships?
This week's “Hot Topics”:
Physical Violence and Domestic Abuse (Ray Rice vs Adrian Peterson situation) Part II, Is it right to parallel sexual preference (orientation) to racial orientation? What's the difference in sexual orientation and sexual preference?
