    Fatherless children and the impact of not having one

    in Culture

    children from fatherless homes are more likely to be poor, become involved in drug and alcohol abuse, drop out of school, and suffer from health and emotional problems. Boys are more likely to become involved in crime, and girls are more likely to become pregnant as teens.


    – Children in father-absent homes are almost four times more likely to be poor. In 2011, 12 percent of children in married-couple families were living in poverty, compared to 44 percent of children in mother-only families.


     There is significantly more drug use among children who do not live with their mother and father.


    The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services states, “Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse.”


     Data from three waves of the Fragile Families Study (N= 2,111) was used to examine the prevalence and effects of mothers’ relationship changes between birth and age 3 on their children’s well being. Children born to single mothers show higher levels of aggressive behavior than children born to married mothers. Living in a single-mother household is equivalent to experiencing 5.25 partnership transitions.


     Children in grades 7-12 who have lived with at least one biological parent, youth that experienced divorce, separation, or nonFather involvement in schools is associated with the higher likelihood of a student getting mostly A’s.

    Healing River: (052915) Healing for the Wounded and Broken Heart

    in Christianity

    A broken and wounded heart causes much pain in our lives.  Unhealed wounds caused by parents, siblings, colleagues, bosses, ministers, and others, allow Satan to operate in our lives, destroying what God has for planned for us.  Satan can also work through a person (perhaps you?) with a wounded heart to wound others around them via the tongue, anger, violence, or other abusive behavior.  We see many "remedies" via books and self help talk shows, yet where is the cure?  Many spend years and thousands of dollars on counselors seeking relief from deep emotional pain to only be drugged with "medication" to lessen the pain, but not deal with the underlying root. There is an answer that will heal your broken and wounded heart once and for all, and we will discuss it this week on the Healing River.

    Guest:Natalie Johnson/Make-up Artist/The Whole Truth/Left Behind

    in Movies

    Natalie Christine Johnson is one of Hollywood South’s most in-demand makeup artists.  With a background in Psychology and a degree in fine arts from the University of New Orleans, Johnson began her career with M.A.C. because a fellow makeup artist happened to like the way she did her makeup when she happened upon her while working in a mall. Natalie used any kind of canvas she could get her hands on and realized that a face was just another medium. She quickly made the move into film and television.  With almost 50 productions under her belt in the past 3 years, Johnson has worked on everything from big budget feature films such as the widely popular Left Behind series with Nicolas Cage, to music videos, network and reality TV, and the Sundance darling Sex, Guaranteed where she met and worked with Stephen Dorff. After working together on that project he later asked her to be his  personal makeup artist for their next project together, The American Hero. Her commercial work ranges from local universities to clients like McDonald’s, Wal-Mart, Visa and the NFL. Expanding from beauty to special effects makeup, Johnson has worked for the last three years as a makeup department head and creative consultant for the independent and festival award winning production company, Little to N.O. Budget Films. Working closely with the director and writers, her vision helped develop worlds of zombies, ghosts, and surreal carnivals. She recently worked on the projects Abattoir and Cold Moon. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.com or follow us on Twitter @123Film

The psychology of color is a broad phrase that gives a wide berth to our human interactions with the full color spectrum. Our Spirit of Color hosts will share their wisdom for how to embrace and harness your unique psychological responses to various colors and how to use this ability to better understand yourself and others. Please join Kristine, Donna, Minnie and Neshi for this lively discussion about the emotional and mental aspects of color.

    All Things Spiritual and Supernatural with David Rountree - May 28,2015

    in Paranormal

    On this episode of All Things Spiritual And Supernatural, join your host Coyote Chris Sutton as he welcomes David Rountree, paranormal researcher, author and of Ghost Stalkers on Destination America


    David began his research into the paranormal professionally in 1976, and has investigated cases scientifically from Rhode Island to Key West, Florida. David has experimented with both scientific as well as metaphysical techniques in his study of unexplained occurrences. Over the course of his research he was able to confirm EVP was not related to sound by the use of a Bell Jar, a vacuum pump, a Shure dynamic microphone and a TEAC A-4010S Reel to Reel recorder. Due to several encounters of a very negative nature from 1985-87, he made the decision to concentrate on the scientific research concerning the phenomena, and not the metaphysical aspects of the events. By 1998 his focus of research had narrowed to phenomena specific to "Hauntings".


    David's additional areas of research includes investigating the relationship between free air conductance, magnetic fields, radioactive emissions, electromagnetic fields and other electrical radiation surrounding paranormal phenomena. He is also experimenting with injecting energy into a paranormal event horizon using Tesla Coil technology in order to observe and record the effects. He is developing a device designed to capture and analyze the phenomena referred to as orbs in order to either prove or dismiss their existence. David is also experimenting with a self designed ITC (Interdimensional Trans-Communications) device using electromagnetic field propagation as a medium of cross communication. He is also studying the environmental effects surrounding mediums and psychics when they are active in their work.
