    Success in one area of life does not guarantee success in all areas.  What happens when you are actually failing in another area that is equally important such as yoiur relationship? There are men who are predisposed to be emotionally present in a relationship and others who are not. This predisposition is an intrinsic part of personality or may be borne of earlier experiences, including the models men grew up with, their previous positive or negative relationships, their temperament,and social norms.


    How do you determine what is sabbotaging your relationship? Tune in as my guest Baron Samuel, author of Best Days, Worst Nights discusses characteristics that impact relationships from the males perspective.

    God's Marriage Position for The MRS. "Learn to Appreciate Your Imperfect Man"

    in Christianity

    The marriage institution was created by God for good! He uses our marriages to protect us and provide for us better than any other way we could possible create on our own as we follow his instructions.  Have you ever thought about God having a sense of humor as He shares His great plans, ideas and commands?  You may recognize a few of them when He told husbands and wives to come together on whatever day they chose with all their "stuff and real-life experiences" and become one with all their family and friends witnessing and celebrating their grand moment.  Oh yea, and how could you possibly forget these characteristics of being completely humble and gentle; being patient, bearing with one another in love.  Through it all in our marriages we are called to model oneness reflecting God's nature, procreate by filling the earth with a godly heritage, steward over the works of God's hands together and mutually complete one another.  All things are possible with God as we invite the Holy Spirit to be in the center from the beginning to the end of our lives, courtships and marriages.  


    SHIFT TODAY Monday evening segments, "God's Marriage Position for The MRS." are designed with wives in mind and those preparing for marriage.   Host Nina Roach and Guests Wives and Friends of MRS. MINISTRIES are wives after God's heart.  Together they'll address the heart challenges and joys that wives face, by transparently sharing wisdom, laughter, love, real- time life experiences and restoration strategies, in hope that marriages thrive by the power of God's love, word and Spirit.  Connect and extract the wisdom from above from 7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. PST. online at www.blogtalkradio.com/shifttoday or by phone 424.220.1862.

    Increased Alcoholism Rates Post Gastric Bypass Surgery

    in Lifestyle

    In 2012 a study was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association that reports the percentage of patients abusing alcohol increased from 7.6% to 9.6% two years after gastric bypass surgery - potentially creating 2,000 alcoholics every year in the US.


    There is more than one theory on why this occurs.  Some say it is addiction transfer: a patient switches an addiction to food to an addiction to alcohol.  More recent evidence suggests an anatomical explanation - metabolic and hormonal changes triggered by gastric bypass surgery that leave patients especially vulnerable to alcoholism.  Maybe it is both - or neither?  The truth is nobody is 100% sure of why alcoholism rates increase post surgery.


    If you are struggling with alcoholism post-surgery, however, the reason why may not be as relevant as what to do about it.  There are unique challenges that face people whose alcoholism may be attributed to gastric bypass surgery, and on this episode of the Bubble Hour we will discuss this startling trend.  We will share more information about why experts feel this increased vulnerability to alcoholism occurs, and speak with special guest Jessica about her own experience with gastric bypass surgery, alcoholism and recovery.


    We are also excited to welcome Diane Grimaldi, DNP, PMHCS, BC as a guest on the show and an expert on this issue.


    Diane started her psychotherapy practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1984 after receiving her Masters Degree in Adult Mental Health Nursing from Boston College and becoming a board certified Clinical Specialist in Psychiatric Nursing. 


    In 2014 she received a Doctorate in Nursing Practice from the University of Massachusetts, Lowell.  For more information about Diane and her practice please visit www.grimaldicounseling.com.

    The Road to RECOVERY...hosted bby Daniel Czuba...WOW WHAT A SHOW TONIGHT!

    in Business

    Hey Folks, if you didn't tune in to tonights show-you missed another great opportunity to learn about RECOVERY through the Candid-Open & sincerely HONEST sharing of one of our listeners-calling in to share Her Experience, Strength & Hope. WOW! She demonstrated Strength, Courage, & Compassion, while helping herself to grow within herself. What a Miracle! AND YOU & "I" Got to be Present during the entire time. How waaay cool as well! You see people - this is NOT a scripted program & not one where you need to say or do anything other than to BE YOURSELVES.


    My/our attempt by hosting this show is to continue helping people to find RECOVERY from ANY Addiction that you may be facing. I/We want to help ERASE the Stigma oftentimes associates with Recovery. Through Recovery we have come to find Ourselves-once lost within our minds-captured and being held captive by our active Addictions, which would tell us that we were NO GOOD or TOO GOOD or WE DIDN'T BELONG, etc... you get the picture. We became LONERS and Isolationists to our detriment & that of those loved ones around us as well.

    STOP!! There is an answer, & YES "HE" is "MY" HIgher Power, whom I choose to call Jesus Christ,GOD. NOW you don't need to find MY God - however I/we will encourage you to find a relationship with a God of your own choosing. In fact we encourage you to find yourself, forgive yourself, & become the friend & aide to others who have struggled along the same paths as you & I. We ARE NOT Doctors of Counselors, or psychologists, you get the picture. We are like you, human beings who may have lost our way due to any various distractions put forth in this world. We offer you HOPE & a Hand to grow in Recovery. Join us Sundays 7 to 9 PM CST. Call-in 323-580-5755

    This Week's Text: James 4:13-17


    This morning we’re going to look at what happens when we elevate our personal plans above God’s plan. When we think we know more about the future than He does. When we pridefully presume upon God by placing our worries over His providence. This morning, I want us to get rid of our presumptive pride. I want us to submit our plans to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. I want us to be able to say to Him, “Not my will, but Thine” and really mean it, so in order for us to do that, we’re going to look at three characteristics of presumptive pride.

    Is There Power In the Steps or do the Steps Show Us Our Need For a Power?

    in Family

    Step One: "We admitted "WE" were powerless over alcohol (addiction) - that our lives had become unmanagable." Who cares to admit complete defeat? Admission of powerlessness is the first step in liberation. Relation of humility to sobriety. Mental obession plus physical allergy, and spiritual malady. Why must every A.A. hit bottom? We know that little good can come to any alcoholic who joins A.A. unless he has first accepted his alcoholism (addiction) and all its consequences. Until he so humbles himself, his sobriety - if any - will be null and void. Of real happiness he will find none at all. Proved beyond doubt by an immense experience, this is one of the facts of A.A. life. The principle that we shall find no enduring strength until we first admit complete defeat is the main taproot from which our whole Society has sprung and flowered. It is a statistical fact that alcoholics/addicts almost never recover on their own resources, and this has been true ever since man has been crushing grapes. 


    Few people will sincerely try to practice the A.A. program unless they have hit bottom. For practicing A.A.'s remaining eleven Steps means the adoption of attitudes and actions that almost no alcoholic who is still drinking can dream of taking. Who wishes to be rigorously honest and tolerant? Who wants to confess his faults to another and make restitution for harm done? Who cares anything about a Higher Power/God let alone meditation and prayer? Who wants to sacrifice time and energy in trying to carry A.A.'s message to the next sufferer? No, the average alcoholic, self-centered in the extreme, doesn't care for this prospect - unless he has to do these things in order to stay alive himself. Join me and my special guest Monty Meyer aka the Monty'man from Take12radio.com this Fri nite Mar 27th at 9pm CT as we discuss dfferent versions of how people see the steps worked, then the proper way to work the steps
