THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Today, we live in a culture obsessed with measuring talent and ability. But, sometimes we overlook the important role of inspiration. Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. Inspiration awakens us to new possibilities by allowing us to transcend our ordinary experiences and limitations. Inspiration can propel any of us, including children, from apathy to possibility. Inspiration can transform the way we perceive our own capabilities and our own strengths. Inspiration may sometimes be overlooked because of its elusive nature. But, as recent research shows, inspiration can be activated, captured, and manipulated, and it has a major effect on important life outcomes. How can you best inspire others? How can you benefit from the process? Why does inspiration matter?

Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Mary Barr joins me this week to talk about her books. We'll discuss her novellas, novels & juvenile fiction titles.
From her novella The Publisher:
Each day with trust and good faith we send our beloved children off to school. We assume they arrive safely, enjoy time with their friends and learn their lessons. We think we know where they are and who they’re with. But life can change in a heartbeat, so can circumstances, places and people and, as a result we never remain the same. Change is often good, sometimes bad, but always constant. The Publisher takes you into the lives of the Smelt family. Joe, Suzanne and their two children, six year old Libby and thirteen year old Connor.
It is a normal school day just like any other, until Joe – the publisher – begins reading a manuscripts. In the manuscript he learns that his children are not at school. They have been kidnapped and are being held hostage until the ransom is paid. Each detail of what he must do is precisely laid out as another page of the manuscript unfolds. Suzanne has done someone wrong and, if she can right the situation her children will go free, if not, they will die. And so, they sit and wait for the knock on the door and the next installment of the manuscript that holds within its pages their children’s fate.

Walking the Woods and the Water: In Patrick Leigh Fermor's footsteps from the Hook of Holland to the Golden Horn:
In 1933, the eighteen-year-old Patrick Leigh Fermor set out in a pair of hobnailed boots to chance and charm his way across Europe, "like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar." The books he later wrote about this walk, A Time of Gifts, Between the Woods and the Water, and the posthumous The Broken Road are a half-remembered, half-reimagined journey through cultures now extinct, landscapes irrevocably altered by the traumas of the twentieth century.
Aged eighteen, Nick Hunt read A Time of Gifts and dreamed of following in Fermor's footsteps. In 2011 he began his own "great trudge"—on foot all the way to Istanbul. He walked across eight countries, following two major rivers and crossing three mountain ranges. With only Fermor's books to guide him, he trekked some 2,500 miles through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey.
His aim? To have an old-fashioned adventure. To slow down and linger in a world where we pass by so much, so fast. To discover for himself what remained of hospitality, kindness to strangers, freedom, wildness, adventure, the mysterious, the unknown, the deeper currents of myth and story that still flow beneath Europe's surface.

It's Christmas Eve and the Elves are busy zipping around with Santa--what happens next? Holiday-themed books and stories can go in many directions when the author uses the "what if" test while creating the plot. They can be fiction, non-fiction, funny, romantic, thrillers, whodunits, fantasies and just about any genre you can think of. They are also ripe playgrounds for the author to add twists. Think about the iconic movie "It's a Wonderful Life," and how many directions that story could have taken. What are some of the elements that draw readers to these books as each holiday rolls around? Do they sell well? Since it is Christmas Eve, Denny and Morgan will be with their families, and this show will be a pre-recorded broadcast for your enjoyment. It will also become part of the archived shows available for future listening. So lift your glass of Christmas cheer while you listen and think about all of the holidays that will inspire and have inspired a huge variety of plots.
This is a show about the value of our children and how they should know the real meaning of Christmas. There is an obvious reason why a baby is born without worldly knowledge to loving parents. We parents are expected to teach them how to walk, talk, and eat. Before parents send their toddlers to school, society and God expects us to nourish the little ones with life substances. Our children depend on us to learn how to live, grow; remain fit and healthy in more ways than one.
That includes teaching them the meaning of Christmas, how and why Jesus Christ was born. It is parents’ responsibility to set an example and give our little ones a meaning of life’s foundation that will last them a lifetime. Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
Our special guest, Detra and John Taylor, who raised two boys, along with nieces and nephews in a Christian home will share their experiences. Faith Eurie-Turner who’s Blogs can be found on http://professionalnet.ning.com/ will also be out special guest. Join us for a real Christmas threat that makes you feel good and reinforces your belief in the ways to raise your children.
There is a major question in the black community about whether or not physical punishment is a viable option for disciplining children. The practice has been around since slavery and is so ingrained into black parents, that it isn't viewed as something that is problematic but rather a necessary component to parenting. In her Book Beating Black Kids, author Asadah Kirkland, discusses why black parents have got to change their thinking about this tradition and gives effective alternatives for parents who may be uninformed about how to be effective at parenting in a way that doesn't involve corporal punishment. Asadah Kirkland is the featured guest on the show. Please call in and share your views. WE WILL ALSO BE DISCUSSING THE LATEST IN THE NYPD BROOKLYN POLICE SHOOTING. CALL IN 347-215-8933

In this episode of EGUA - Marketplace we examine the Abosom (Deities) Ausar, Auset and Heru and expose the idiocy of 'christmas'.
The characters 'jesus' as well as 'yeshua ben pandira' are fictional characters who never existed of any race or in any form whatsoever. There is also no such thing as 'christ consciousness'.
We examine our book:
