    “Heaven Is For Real.” In that runaway bestseller, a little boy goes to Heaven and returns to talk about it. “I thought it would be considerably more interesting if the cute little kid went to Hell instead of Heaven,” says Apple. And as if that wasn’ttwisted enough, he decided to make it a musical. The script caught the eye of director Jay Stern, who has directed a string ofacclaimed NYC Fringe shows, including the award-winning musical “The Bardy Bunch.” For HELL IS FOR REAL, Stern and his team assembled a dream cast, populated with Broadway heavy-hitters.

    Andre Controversa Presents: Planned Parenthood and John Boehner: Both Bad

    in Politics Conservative

    All,
    with all the news surrounding the Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal, it's a wonder we haven't covered the issue so far.


    Truthfully, those in the know about this issue have been so busy and swamped with media themselves that I haven't been able to get them on the air.


    At least, until tonight.
    Stay tuned at 9-00 p.m. CT, as we devote the first hour of the Andre Controversa show to this gruesome but timely topic.


    Our guest is Jim Sedlak, founder of Stop Planned Parenthood and vice-president of the American Life League.
    Jim will give us a detailed overview of the three videos from the Center for Medical Progress, as well as the allegations they are making against PP.


    Our second hour will feature Logan Albright, spokesman for Freedom Works, who will tell us why so many conservatives and libertarians are disgusted with John Boehner.


    We will discuss the recent coup attempt by North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows, as well as Mark Levin's bold statement urging Boehner and McConnell to resign.


    That segment will cover the first 30 minutes of the second hour.


    For now, we don't have anything scheduled for the last 30 minutes, so Jim and I will probably give our oh-so-eloquent commentary on the political scene.


    If I get a guest for the last 30 minutes, I will send an update.


    Please tune in at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, starting at 9-00 p.m. Ct.
    you can also find us at www.libertarianrepublican.net.
    Feel free to call in during the show at 914-803-4350.
    We'll see you this evening.
    Andre Controversa

    Jun 29 ~ Charlotte View: Conversations, Claudia Pureco & guests (Lauren Logan)

    in Spirituality

    Charlotte View presents its newest project 'Conversations' with your host Claudia Pureco and the guest of the day. This time I have invited Lauren Logan to the conversation and to launch this project to share our genuine thoughts as they emerge in free conversations with each other (and whoever 'jumps' into the conversation 805-830-8344)


    Charlotte View host, Claudia Pureco, has gained so much inspiration through her conversations with some quite remarkable people, with her own spiritual self and with her personal relationships. It is while having these conversations that much information has come through. Many times the thought of putting these conversations into the show has presented itself, only to be sent back to a later time. Now is the time.


    Most of the time, what we need to help us through the struggles in our lives is not the advice of an expert but the wisdom of a friend. The topics covered in these warm and highly personal conversations are broad and varied, but one thing comes through with constancy and clarity: there is great value in a wise, experienced friend to help us see more clearly and to strengthen our growth in faith and godliness. A big part of living courageously lies in having fierce, authentic conversations.


    If you want to be part of these conversations, you can. Just call, listen to where the conversation is going and 'jump in' by pressing #1 to be in the queue. If you wish just to remain as a listener press #2. Also, you can listen to these conversations at any time you wish after the show, follow Charlotte View and be "in the loop"

    YOU ARE CHOOSING TO LIVE OUT A SUCKY LIFE

    in Self Help

    Have you ever questioned why the same problems keep repeating themselves over and over again in your personal and professional life?


    There's a very simple and straightforward answer to this: You're making the same bad choices, by an overwhelming amount of practice. Here is some things to consider:


    Your brain really was divided into 2 categories: one being your 'Growing Up Brain', and the other being the 'Grown Up Brain'.The 'Growing Up Brain' is the one that is impulsive, irrational, unreasonable, and self-critical. It is not fully aware of what it is doing and is less mature (compare your maturity level now versus when you were still in your adolescent stages). This part is the primitive, impulsive part whose decisions are all about what's familiar, what's easiest and what feels the best overall in any situation.


    The 'Grown Up Brain' is the one that is logical, practical and reasonable... This is the part of the brain that will help get you out of the repeating cycle of problematic situations in your life. It utilizes logic and is the rational part whose decisions make a lot of sense and will help you stay on track towards what you truly desire in life.


    SO WHERE IS THE PROBLEM?


    So many people still operate from the vast storehouse of the 'Growing Up Brain'. Why? It is nothing more than HABITS. And the habits that are played out in your life over and over again are the ones that take over your life. Practice makes perfect. What habits are you really good at that you have quite literally perfected? Just like you wouldn't want an eight-year old managing your business, why let one manage your life?


    The time to express the real you is NOW. In order to thrive in life, it is vitally important to use the best part of your brain to run the show.

    Conversations with Sapphire J Blue and the Authors of The Brightest Day:

    in Writing

    The Brightest Day: A Juneteenth Historical Romance Anthology


    Amazing Grace, by Lena Hart: 
    It’s the year 1866—the Civil War is over and slavery has ended. Life for 18-year-old Gracie Shaw takes an unexpected turn when she is “encouraged” to marry a man sight-unseen. Boarded on a train headed West—to lawless territory—she is faced with misfortune at every turn and must accept the help of former Confederate soldier, Logan Finley, while denying herself the one thing she wants most. Him. 
    Drifting to You, by Kianna Alexander: 
    During the sultry Carolina summer of 1875, baker Rosaline Rhodes boards a Juneteenth cruise down the Cape Fear River. She's there to serve her famous cinnamon spice cake; shipbuilder Will Pruett is there for pleasure. They've denied their mutual attraction for months, but now the river won't be the only thing ebbing and flowing. 
    A Sweet Way to Freedom, by Piper Huguley: 
    In 1910, schoolteacher Missouri Baxter refuses to return home with a big belly and no husband. She’s got nine months to teach juke joint owner Arlo Tucker—a most reluctant student—an important lesson about what marriage means to their people. With God on her side, she'll show him “A Sweet Way to Freedom.” 
    Let It Shine, by Alyssa Cole: 
    Sofronia Wallis knows that proper Black women don't court trouble by upending the status quo, and they most certainly don't associate with roughneck Jewish boxers like Ivan Friedman. But it’s 1961 and the Civil Rights movement is in full swing. Change—and love—are coming whether Sofie is ready or not.
