Stacy Matseas joins Mary E., to celebrate the "Strides" made against breast cancer through the work of the American Cancer Society, "Making Strides" events. Her commitment is evident in her 10 year history of raising over a MILLION dollars for a cure.
Stacy became involved in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk as a team captain, and, fueled by the desire to strike down the feelings of helplessness and her belief in the work and mission of the Society, Stacy became one of the most successful fundraisers in history, having raised more than $1 million for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. “The first year, I raised $5,000,” Stacy said. “From there, I just remained persistent and passionate and formed a network of volunteers, supporters and teammates, and educated them about what Making Strides is about.”
Stacy’s work with the American Cancer Society isn’t limited to her involvement with Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
In addition to Stacy's story, we will focus on "Chicago is gearing up for the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk on Saturday, October 25 – Thousands of local breast cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers, businesses and community members will unite at the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk of Chicago on Saturday, October 25 at Soldier Field (Stadium Green, 1410 Museum Campus Drive)."
It is with pleasure that I will interview, Steve, Kristee, Genny & Jim co founders of Making Strides Queensland.

While taking some well needed rest this past weekend, I chose to re-experience one of my favorite movies, Fantasia. As I watched the familiar story of The Sorcerer's Apprentice, it struck me that it carried a message about wellness and how we are often tempted to seek a short-cut to reach our holistic goals. Today we'll be exploring the lessons of this simple story and identifying the insights that can help us avoid getting caught in a whirlpool of our own making.
After the show I will be checking into the chatroom for questions and comments.

Looking at the website for Waynesboro, MS, I see they take pride in their city. The police site proudly displays "To Protect and Serve'. However, these must just be words that they display to make their city look good! In reality, the police are failing to 'protect and serve' one family and their despirate calls for police assistance.
James and Laquita Johnson were awaken at 2:30am Saturday morning by a call from their neighbor stating he had witnessed a man tearing thru their fence to get to one of their beloved dogs (why the dog was kept outside if it was so beloved is unknown to me). The witness gave a description of the truck and the Johnsons knew exactly who was the thief. Laquita called the police but when they showed up, they simply told her they could NOT knock on his door!!!!!!!!! So James, the owner of the missing dog, walked don to the suspects house to get his dog back. As he approached, the dog came running out of the house!!!!!! Evidence in the rectal area proved the dog had been raped.
Now we are making a Call To Action plea for our listeners to spread the news, make calls, and write emails. Those living near the Waynesboro, MS area are asked to picket the City Hall and demand an investigation, arrest and prosecution of the suspect, Eddie Woullard.

NTRODUCTION What if there was a question that would clarify your best option for ninety percent of the decisions you make in life—a question that answers just about everything? It would have the potential to foolproof your relationships, marriage, finances, calendar, pace, and health. It would reduce the complexity of your life. It would save you time, money and tears. You would carry around less regret. And best of all, you wouldn’t have to apologize nearly as much. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? If so, what are you going to do to make sure you follow through on them? 2. What are some ways you’ve seen people allow their emotions and desires lead their decisionmaking? 3. Read Ephesians 5:15–17. What are some of the cultural currents that make it difficult for people today to make wise choices? 4. How might your life be different if you made decisions in light of your past experience and current circumstances? 5. During the message, Andy said, “Personal vision is often a catalyst for wise decisions.” Think about your future hopes and dreams. What are some opportunities you’re in danger of missing if you make unwise choices? 6. What is one area of your life about which you need to ask, “What’s the wise thing for me to do?” How can this group support you in asking that question? MOVING FORWARD Of every invitation, opportunity, relationship, or decision, ask “What’s the wise thing to do?” If you were going to do the wise thing, what would it be? By asking that question, even if you don’t follow through, you will discover something about you. You owe it to yourself to know the answer to that question. CHANGING YOUR MIND Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15–16
