    The Listening Project tells the true story of a woman who decides to make an unusual and quirky deal with God to become a better listener.

As the author shares her experiences and lessons learned, readers are encouraged to explore their own unique spiritual approach to life, the ways they listen to God, and the inherent human challenges and rewards of hearing and following Divine guidance.


    Christine C. Williams, PhD has spent most of her professional career as a facilitator, presenter, and consultant specializing in workplace conversations. Professionally and personally, Christine’s work is about building sustainable relationships. Her experiences with diverse workgroups motivated her to publish her first book, Working as One: Fundamental Conversations That Build Cooperation and Get Results, which supports coworkers’ efforts to talk with one another in productive and constructive ways.

    in Professional

    DALLAS COWBOYS FOOTBALL IS BACK!


    Debuting at our new time this is a HUGE show despite a mild week. 


    Our first topic: Jerry Jones says he supports Dez's fight in training camp, saying he felt the incident was exciting, and he liked the fire. Is Jerry going senile? You like your 70 million dollar player getting punched in the face?! Jerry has always been a fan of passion, but you can't be encouraging this!


    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/08/22/jerry-jones-brushes-off-training-camp-fights-thats-just-dez/


    Will Darren McFadden play despite sore hamstrings? Should he? He is an big part of the success of this offense and for him to play too soon in a pointless game..........we debate. 


    Will ROMO play? Despite his injury history, he needs game action. The turf at Levi's stadium is brutal, should ROMO sit until week 4 of pre season where he can play at home?

    Extended Foster Care - David Hall

    in Lifestyle

    In this segment, former foster youth David Hall notes that we should not be looking at why we need to extend foster care, but what we need to do when we extend foster care.  In addition to not often being able go get a driver's license to transport oneself to work, it is very hard to get two forms of ID put together when applying for jobs.  Here are some other ideas that David suggests during his segment:


    - Whenever the young adults reach 18, they need parents who are willing to keep them until 21 when policy does not prohibit continued support given by foster parents.  


    - There needs to be specialized workers for young adults between the ages of 18 and 21.  Some of his other suggestions include:


    - We need to look at a Housing First Model


    - We need to look at placing youth in extended foster care in roles where they can mentor younger foster youth and start assisting in the life skills development of younger foster youth.  


    David Hall is the Co-Founder of a statewide student organization at Oklahoma City University, called R is for Thursday, which supports and promotes foster youth who are in college or currently going into college.  You can find out more about the organization by going to http://education.okstate.edu/risforthursday
