Tonight's special guest is Emily Samuelson, Ph.D., from Baltimore, Maryland, of the Soaring Project. A psychologist who specializes in treating trauma, she's also a survivor of incest in her childhood and has written a book about her experience, "Soaring Above the Ashes: Thriving After Childhood Sexual Abuse." She tells me, "Somewhere in my childhood, I boxed up the memories and lost my connection to the truth of what happened to me. It wasn't until I was 39 years old that my memories broke through. This was after a betrayal when my daughter was 5 weeks old, and separation and eventual divorce 6 months later; a breast cancer scare; a job where I was a scapegoat; and news that my mother had two different kinds of cancer. That's what it took to break me open." She goes on, "I got PTSD and lived in a nightmare of flashbacks for many months. I worked on healing for the next 20 years." Her book, "Soaring Above the Ashes," has stories of survivors based on face-to-face interviews from all over the country. Each story is accompanied by a black and white portrait. "The story of my healing journey is woven between the chapters, Emily explains. "Although I am now thriving, I continue to work on becoming more whole, my deepest wish."
Today on Unspoken Words Robert finishes his series on "Dry Places". Every new level of life will require you to go through a dry place,which is a transitional period that can be discouraging if you don't see it correctly. So many people end up getting stuck in places they were only meant to pass through & there's nothing worse than the feeling that life isn't moving forward. The Millennial Generation is a transitional generation in its own right & with social media being such a big part of our lives, knowing how to manage relationships is more important than ever.
Our children have seen, heard and experienced too much in their lives and many are exhibiting signs of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome before they even reach High School. Childhood used to be a time of joy, innocence, laughter, and carefree living. Now there is fear, doubt, distrust, anger and frustration, robbing our children not only of the innocence of youth, but of hope that tomorrow will be a better day. They need to believe it in order to create it, but how do we instill in our children that the have the power to create the world the way they want it to be, when they are standing upon a foundation of emotional trauma? Domestic violence, homelessness, drug addicted parents, and schools that are downright hostile. Who do they turn to for healing? After an early hard life, how can a child's innocence be restored? Today our guest is Life Coach and Family Counselor Shiela Wilkins, Phd Coach dealing with the mind, body and spirit. Later on we'll be joined by therapist Howard Williams, to discuss how we, the extended family, can reach out to our children.
It's called taking the "high road" through a very difficult time in the life of anyone going through divorce, especially those who were blindsighted to the fact of a possible divorce. The issues, the emotions, and the transitions are almost too hard to bear, but...still....it's there. So, how do you cope? What does God say about divorce and can God really help me through to this? That is a resounding YES!!!!
Bible Study Teacher, Lilly Landis, while going through her own divorce realized early on that the thought processes we pick up in God's Word can build strength, hope, grace, protection, provision, and enable you to deeply understand the human heart while going through divorce.
So...are you there now? Do you know of someone who is going through it? On our very first show, we will share in detail the kinds of features our programs will cover. At times, you will be able to interact with a guest and various major topics for all divorcees...you'll be able to hear some much needed encouragement as we go through God's Word, and every time you listen, you will have the opportunity to write out your own thoughts for that specific scripture.
Join us, next Monday, and 10:30AM as we begin this weekly radio show, where you can listen to this in your own private time, yet glean from God's Word where you need it the most! And please know that you can always go back to our archives if you missed our show. Please tell your relatives or friends of this much needed radio ministry...Healing Voice Radio.

Join Alex Primo and Asha Zuri Thursday May 28th at 9 pm EST as we dissect, debate, and discuss the secret that Black folks don't talk about ... Depression in our community.
One in ten Americans will be affected by some form of Depression during their lifetime, usually caused by a major life event such as divorce, unemployment, poor health, or a death in the family. And depression is fast becoming a worldwide issue for the health industry.
How does this affect Black America specifically? Well, it has been noted by researchers that those living in poverty, us, are two and a half times more likely to experience depression. Additionally, 90% of Black males who suffer from this condition seek no treatment. On top of that women are more likely to experience depression than men, so consequently that means that Black women are suffering the most from this ailment.
“I’ve tried to commit suicide over 15 times. I have the scars on my arms of wanting to kill myself and not even know why,” said 45-year-old Tracey Hairston, a member of the health center who has bipolar disorder.
A report published by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison found that poverty, parenting, racial and gender discrimination put Black women — particularly low-income Black women — at greater risk for major depressive disorder (MDD).
Now that we know the problem, let's talk solutions brothers and sisters.

Michelle A. Roberts of Atlanta, Georgia, is a fighter and a winner. She describes her impressive life change in this way: “After being married for 17 years, I finally awakened to the realization that my drug-addicted husband was not going to change. I had remained in the marriage—for too long—largely for two reasons. One was because I thought no one would want a fat girl with three babies. The other, deeper reason was because I was not raised with my father and always longed for that relationship, so I clung to the hope that my husband would be the man who would fill that void. He did not. In fact, he put our children and me through the maddening frustrations and disappointments that come with sharing life with an addict. I became so depressed I began carrying 268 pounds on a five-foot frame. Finally, however, I took charge of my life. I had life-altering surgery, gastric bypass, and lost more than 110 pounds. I got a divorce, began a lifestyle of fitness, went back to school, and obtained bachelors, masters and is currently a Doctoral Candidate. I opened several businesses and authored several books. Yes, the years of schooling and attitude change were hard. Yes, I cried. Yes, I complained sometimes. But whenever I felt on the verge of giving up, I had only to look at my three children, and a fight for dear life would arise in me.” Michelle A. Roberts, is a professional speaker & published Author she specializes in training and encouraging Women that they are overcomers, and can comeback from any challenge. Ms. Roberts is a member of the American Business Women’s Association, Airport Charter Chapter and National Coalition of 100 Black Women, Mecca Chapter.
