    When Alcohol Becomes a Hiding Place

    in Motivation

    The last season the show aired, I spoke on how sex can become a hiding place for many people. In this show I want to touch on how alcohol can also be used as a coping mechanism to deal with major pain, disappointment, shame, etc. So many people drink alcohol and do not realize that they are drinking it for far deeper reasons than to just "get tipsy" or because the taste is enjoyed.


    I just want to point out that a person does not necessarily have to classified as an alchoholic to have an alchohol problem. So many people are able to function pretty well with alchohol and other drugs. They are able to hide it well and carry on with their external lives as if nothing is wrong. Sometimes others, especially close loved ones, are able to tell that something is wrong, but are not always able to pinpoint the causes and the true depth of the issue.


    I wanted to speak on this because I have experienced this very destructive secret life. This may help someone who is currently struggling or someone who might think they know someone who is. 


    According to the National Institute on Alchohol Abuse and Alcoholism, in the United States nearly 88,000 people die annually (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women). Alcohol is the 3rd leading cause of death in the US. Therefore, this is a serious thing and it needs to be addressed. God does not intend for us to suffer in this way.

    Art In Education with Christopher Dean Sullivan

    in Entertainment

    Christopher Dean Sullivan, Executive Director of Artistic Resolutions To Education (ARTE).  A program which offers interactive clinics, workshops and residencies that follow the American World Music Genre...Jazz, and other musical art forms and genres from its origins in the United States through its journey and integration throughout the world and will feature DVD presentations and master class interactive demonstrations.


    In recent years, school curricula in the United States have shifted heavily toward common core subjects of reading and math. What has suffered most has been the arts.  Although some may regard art education as a luxury, simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate the arts may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up.


    Know by so many, the Arts play a major role in the Developmental of a child.  Some of the benefits include; motor skills, language development, decision making, visual learning, inventiveness and cultural awareness.  It is also well know that the arts clear make an impact and improve academic performance.

    Understanding the Bible is important because the Bible is God’s Word. When we open the Bible, we read God’s message to us. What could be more important than understanding what the Creator of the universe has to say?

    We seek understanding of the Bible for the same reason a man seeks to understand a love letter from his sweetheart. God loves us and desires to restore our relationship with Him (Matthew 23:37). God communicates His love to us in the Bible;

    What is "Operation Jade Helm 15"? Are You Ready for Martial Law in the U.S.A.?

    in Politics

    Operation Jade Helm 15 - Martial Law in America is it just around the corner?


    Special Guest:  Diane Kepus


    If you have not heard about this it is time to pay attention.  I realize it is difficult for Americans to believe that their own government could actually turn against them and I am going to be accused of being an alarmist, extremist and their favorite – tinhatter. But I would rather error on the side of caution than have you unprepared.


     Every country that has been overtaken by its own government has made the statement “That can't happen here,” and it has been the final words of millions.


     Mock Disaster Drills at School


    All over the United States, school children are being taken out of their classrooms, put on buses and sent to “alternate locations” during terror drills.  These exercises are often called “evacuation drills” or “relocation drills” and they are more than a little disturbing. In the years since 9/11 and the Columbine school shootings, there has been a concerted effort to make school emergency drills much more “realistic” and much more intense.
