    CHRIS RENEE, AUTHOR, RADIO HOST, COLUMNIST: Once a young girl with a wild imagination and a pen. Her mind was the one place where she was free to express herself as she pleased. Nothing was ever off guards within the comfort of her ears. She put words to paper and surprisingly others found pleasure in it as well. This truth is evidenced by the books she has written, The Kiss of Death and Wealthy and Wicked. She learned quickly that she possessed the ability to connect with readers. Drawing from experience, life itself and secret confessions of friends, Chris began penning erotic based novels in junction with capturing the sexual senses of my readers through taut narrative I developed a love for writing. This is a new journey that she is pleased to be on and blessed that she gets to share it with all of you! I am also more than pleased to present Chris Renee to my listening family tonight.

    Black Thoughts and Theory:The Radio Show-Depression In The Black Community

    in Culture

    Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.


    One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.


    How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.


    “I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.


    A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).


    Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

    Occupy Your Heart - Your Spiritual Journey

    in Spirituality

    Occupy Your Heart


    Physical journeys begin and end but not so with Spirituality. Spiritual journeys are ongoing and take us from one dimension to another in an ever axcending cycle.


    We're not here to waste our time, to be victimized or sidelined by the circumstances that befall us.  We're here to get it together and find our way Home. Home is where the heart is and that's where we live once that connection is made.


    This episode of Your Spiritual Journey is about connecting with that heart-space - your feeling center. It is where we feel that we live, not where we think. Thinking about our feelings comes after we've accepted them and identified what they mean to us. Without that step there's no getting around to where we actually live.


    Then we're on the wheel of karma perpetually falling into one trap or another, traps that we created, to keep us feeling victimized and afraid. Its through self-responsibility that we break this cycle and find our way back to center.
    Getting off that wheel requires us to connect with our heart. Every psychotherapist worth his/her salt knows this to be true. Guiding people back to where they "live" - that is where they "feel" - is what happens in the consulting room every day. 


    Only by owning and feeling those feelings then allowing ourselves to express them safely can we ever be free of that self-perpetuating karmic cycle.


    So, Occupy Your Heart and you will find your way Home.

    A Husband’s Final Farewell to an Amazing Lady

    in Christianity

    Greetings to all God's people I pray continue blessings over your life and God's favor. I so deeply appreciate your prayers throughout the ministry. This is a special broadcast that I know will leave you speechless. My guest is Mike Hollinger 


    On June 20, 2014 Nitza Hollinger left her husband and two sons to forever be with the Lord.  Is this the outcome that she would have voluntarily chosen?  No!  Nitza had two wonderful boys who she desired to see as grown men, to enjoy the fruits of her labor in witnessing the success in each of their lives unfold.  As will be explained, there was a clear pivotal point that occurred as the Lord prepared Nitza to forever be with Him. As the Kirkus review made clear: “Hollinger writes of her experiences with intelligence, and her story is marked by clarity, humor, humility and gratitude.”  Nitza was very humble in the writing of her book.  Her desire was not to bring attention to herself; instead, she chose to focus on how God was continually with her throughout her difficult cancer journey.  At times, I would ask if she was planning to put key experiences of her life in the book, Nitza’s answer was:“No! I am only putting in the book what God wants me to!” 


    As her husband, I now choose to share with you, the reader, some of those experiences and life events that Nitza chose not to share, desiring that you may better know the amazing lady who I knew, a woman who was much loved by God, family and friends. Tell all your family and friends to join us May 26, 2015 at 9:00 a.m. EST. Come to be blessed while being a blessing.

    I Remember - With Craig Sicilia

    in Radio

    I Remember – Hosted by Craig Sicilia
    First off we want to thank all the veterans out there for their service, and our deepest gratitude for all the men and woman who have sacrificed for our freedoms.  As a survivor a warrior in this epidemic so hidden that I don’t even know who I am a lot of the time.  I remember all the loss of friends and family and especially myself, or at least my old self.
    I am this new person who the people I used to love, don’t recognize, I still remember those times, but they have been over shadowed by the destruction of the old me and the pain as I formed this new person.  In the realm of things I have learned to like this new me, this more sensitive person who truly cares for people.
    And now something new has happened, a type of ptsd from all of the new friends that this new me has made in the last 9 years are dying all around me, the loss that I am feeling in my heart make it that I find myself struggling to care, struggling to go on.  As I write this I am not sure I can but am trying.  I never allowed myself to develop a person relationship, to fall in love, I would not allow it.  Tonight we will explore how to cope with loss, share what we need to do to allow ourselves to love.  Allow ourselves to live life again.
    Join in let’s see if we can discover how this all works
