Good morning people! After what was a long break, Phin Outta Water returns and we bring you the most important one of the year! Today we will be discussing the Super Bowl matchup between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. There's been a lot of controversy surrounding the Pats, but we'll leave all that deflate gate stuff to the media... or will we? Join us as we dig into this Super Bowl match up and what to expect from both competitors
No one likes to be hounded and shouted at about anything, much less about what or how to believe. When it comes to the human heart, different things work for different people. Some people need a more direct approach while others prefer and desire a subtler one.
In this battle of ideas where every idea should be equally measured and analyzed, the Christian author has a unique role in being able to generate creative works via the written word. In the realm of fictional writing, we have a plethora of ways to bring about the message of the gospel.
In the past when we discussed this topic, listeners have said one of the irritating things about Christian fiction is that the characters and the situations are not realistic. Some Christian works are just that...nice little stories with just a hint of conflict and then God comes in and saves the day before anything bad happens.
However, as some of us know, that's not always the case.
If this is your year to write the book that God has called you to write, then this show is for you. How do you weave in the gospel message without sledgehammer? Join me as we talk about this topic with our guest co-host Deborah Heal. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press one to be live on air. Or you can download the WLUV radio mobile app. Tune in!
Katrina Pavlik (Board Chair), founder of Breastfeed Chicago, M.Ed., postpartum doula, certified lactation specialist. “My dream for Chicago is that it will become the most breastfeeding-friendly city in the country. Not only will new moms get the help and support they need from their health care providers, but they will benefit from an extensive breastfeeding-support network. Moms will be seen breastfeeding their children anywhere, anytime… and it will be considered a normal, natural way of feeding our children.”
In 2011, Katrina Pavlik created a closed Facebook group to invite
people to start a conversation about breastfeeding in Chicago. Within six
hours, it had grown to 400 people. "I saw a need for a community that
could discuss how to make Chicago more breastfeeding friendly. From the Facebook group, we expanded and added the Breastfeed, Chicago! blog and resource list.

When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise. For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute. 99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed. In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.
St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.
As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).
After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated. Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.
For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people. The community is still re-building 10 years later.
During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.
Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.
Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet. We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".
Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.
