Join Me and my special guest Terry Cato for an in-depth discussion on her book "No Longer A Bridesmaid".
I have been writing ever since I could write words and form sentences. My earliest memory of writing was when I was in kindergarten and I would write sentences in my coloring books before I colored the pictures. As a child, I also wrote poems. I began to write song and rap lyrics as a teenager. Throughout my twenties and most of my thirties, I experienced severe writer's block and did not write any type of creative literature.
?In 2008, I began writing song lyrics again; and in 2010 God gave me the vision to write about my experience and journey to become a wife as I sat in a marriage enrichment class at my church. After writing an outline of the book, it would be another year before I started work on the manuscript. The initial title was Always a Bridesmaid ~ Never a Bride because I felt like a perpetual bridesmaid during my season of preparing to be a wife. After completing the manuscript, I edited the title to more accurately decribe my total experience; and No Longer A Bridesmaid! was born. I have a heart to help women by uplifting, empowering and motivating them to become all that God has called and purposed them to be. My ministry advocates for and suppport causes that uplift and empower women and girls.
I am married to Lloyd; he is my Boaz, my "Knight In Shining Armor" and the King of the castle. We have three wonderful children.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview TLC's Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta Star Lori Allen.
This season on SAY YES TO THE DRESS ATLANTA, Lori and Monte step out of the salon more than ever to help brides find the dress of their dreams, even taking a road trip to Nashville. With surprise brides and last minute dress hunts, the team at Bridals by Lori has their hands full. Also, in a special episode this season, Lori helps her future daughter-in-law find the dress (or dresses) of her dreams. Then, viewers get to follow along as they prepare for the big day and get an inside look at the wedding itself.
Lori Allen is the owner of Bridals by Lori. She says that her favorite brides are "Brides who are harder to fit because I love to teach them about fit and what looks good on them -- then find them the perfect dress. I like a challenge."
Abibifahodie (Black Liberation),
If you're anything like the Brothers of WOH, you've been getting excited to see the 2nd "Real Black Man" win a SuperBowl this year. Cam Newton is one of the most exciting and remarkable talents to hit sports in the last decade. He is poised to become one of the greatest professional football quarterbacks in NFL history.
However, over the past few weeks, his effemine dress has become extreme. He is not only wearing fairy dresses, but he is clearly making a noticeable effort to wear the most flamboyant, female attire money can pay for. He has done everything but come out in a dress.
We've seen the ridiculous homosexual clothing styles sported by Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. But Cam Newton's half-leopard, half-zebra stlyed Versace tight pants may take the cake.
Those of us who are Afrikancentered Brothers have tried to give Newton a pass with the excuse that maybe he's being targeted by the gay fashion designers to wear these outfits without understanding that he is promoting the "Effeminization of the Black Male." But this new outfit makes it clear that he is consciously wearing these styles.
The question on the table is, "Is Cam Newton a Random Victim of the Homosexual Agenda or Is Cam Newton Preparing To Drop a Sissy Bomb on Our Community?" And if he gets the MVP in the SuperBowl and comes out the closet, what impact will that have on the Black community?

In our day to day lives, we totally are oblivious to the symbolism that affects us everyday. From social media to childrens' cartoons it is unmistakably impossible to ignore what is right in front of our faces. We will also look at the fact that Hollywood has been the driving force for the images we see of males in dresses. Is it just comedy or brainwashing?
In the second hour, we will speak with Joe Currie of Street Dream Studios. He and his business partners have created a positive comic series surrounded around people of color.
Also joioning us will be Darryl Grayson of an animated platform called Tell Me Who You I Am, which promotes the teachings of Black children loving themselves.

The Floriana Wedding Dress Project
(Founder and Canadian Director)
The Floriana Wedding Dress Project opened the first “pay what you can” store in Port-au-Prince on March 28, 20105. Donated wedding, bridesmaid, grad dresses and accessories are rented or sold for whatever price the customer can afford. A second location was opened across the city by our team there. They opened it on my birthday this year – the best present I could ask for!
This little idea that my sister and I had (our goal was 10 dresses for the March 2015 trip) exploded into something so quickly it has just been amazing. We have over 200 wedding gowns and 425 bridesmaid dresses already given to us! Many of these are already in Haiti or have been packed up for the next container.
One of our goals is job creation for Haitian parents through sewing and up cycling projects. We will also plan to assist orphans transitioning out of care and into adulthood with jobs – there is a need for these young people to have employment, life skills and a way of supporting themselves
Some of our goals for the very near future on the Canadian end of things are to have an office with storage, an excellent website that makes it easy to navigate and contribute, and an annual fund raising event that's interesting, fun and somehow involves the wedding industry.
There is a special place in my heart for Haiti as my husband Jason and I were privileged to adopt a beautiful little child in 2010, following the devastating earthquake. This summer we celebrate our 21st Anniversary and are happy to say we enjoy each others company more than ever! We live in Burlington with our two internationally adopted daughters, Shantaya (from Malawi, age 11) and Divna (from Haiti, age 7).
What makes a man in a suit attractive to ladies? Does a well-dressed man have any advantage over a man in jeans? Can you believe that the way a man dresses could affect his success in relationships? Really? Some of the listeners may not agree with you.
Can business and love mix or are you better off to leave the pleasure out of the office?
Lately I have noticed that there is a huge increase in the number of men wearing weaves and dresses. In everyday fashion is this acceptable now? Do women look down on men who wear heels, weaves, makeup, etc? Why is more acceptable for women to dress boyish than for men to do so? Is that a reason to question a man's sexuality?
Let's talk about it....
