    Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance!

    Normalcy & Abnormalcy bias, finding Balance!

    “Normalcy bias”.  A state of mind in which people ignore the obvious in preference of perfect world syndrome, where even though bad things happen, they will either not happen to you, or will be of little to no consequence if something does.  Those that suffer from normalcy bias often scoff not only at the thought of whichever conspiracy theory has become popular that week, but also are either oblivious to, or ignorant of every day threats that are on the six o’clock news almost every day.  Never mind the idea of the economy not being as good or stable as we once thought it was.


    On the other side of the coin, we also see examples of abnormalcy bias.  A state of mind where every event becomes a sign of impending doom. Abnormalcy bias comes from the constant practice of reading more into a scenario than truly exists, or at the very least, not putting threats into perspective. Join me as we discuss a way to achieve a balance between these two condition.

    in Books

    Frances R. Armstrong (Franny) is a wife, a mother of three children, and grandparent of four. A published author of paranormal romance, she chose to share her experiences with mental illness, rather than hide in her home and suffer in silence. It's important to her that the stigma of mental illness is removed, so that people will learn about it and not fear it.

For the average person to be well, they would have to fight mental illness using all of the resources available. They are not alone. Consider Franny's book, Striving For Normalcy, as a guide, based on her personal experiences and prepared with those in mind those who suffer in silence or who don't have support systems in their lives.


    Striving For Normalcy is based on her personal experiences, and references from the internet, and a qualified psychiatrist. It is her hope that people will learn and understand the inner workings of the disease, helping families and friends learn how to live with, not only the person who is ill, but change the way that society deals with those who suffer every day from an illness that rules their bodies and minds.

    Serial Killers

    in Paranormal

    Join us tonight as we delve into the darker side of humanity and bring to you the underbelly of society.


    A serial killer is a person who murders three or more people,usually due to abnormal psychological gratification, with the murders taking place over more than a month and including a significant break (a "cooling off period") between them.Some sources, such as the FBI, disregard the "three or more" criterion and define serial killing as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone".


    Although psychological gratification is the usual motive for serial killing, and most serial killings involve sexual contact with the victim,the FBI states that the motives of serial killers can include anger, thrill, financial gain, and attention seeking. The murders may be attempted or completed in a similar fashion and the victims may have something in common: race, appearance, sex, or age group, for example.


    Serial killing is not the same as mass murdering, nor is it spree killing, in which murders are committed in two or more locations in a short time. However, cases of extended bouts of sequential killings over periods of weeks or months with no apparent "cooling off period" or "return to normalcy" have caused some experts to suggest a hybrid category of "spree-serial killer

    Extended Foster Care - Maurita Miller (North Carolina)

    in Lifestyle

    Please listen in as Maurita Miller, a foster parent from North Carolina and founder of In Our Shoes Inc., describes her experience with her youth who "aged-out" of foster care.  She describes how she was told "if she kept a youth who emancipated form foster care in her home, the other foster youth in her home would be placed into a different home."  She also poses several important questions, such as:


    - If we are going to extend foster care to 21, what are we going to change about the system?  Are we going to just prolong what happens to young adults at age 18 to when they are 21?


    - What are we doing to help insure that youth are not going straight into homeless shelters or the judicial system, because they do not have a place to stay after they emancipate?


    - How are we going to increase normalcy for teens in foster care (hanging out with friends, first hand learning experiences, driving education, etc.)?



    Please comment with your thoughts below

  • Church without Walls #4- Where is the Lord God of Elijah

    in The Bible

    We may have this treasure in earthen vessels; but the Lord our God is too great to be hid within the walls of a building.  If you're looking for fire-baptized preaching, worship and ministry that truly transforms lives, go beyond the walls.  Join Church without Walls.  Come as you are; leave as God intended you to be.


    This week, rejoin Elijah and Elisha beyond Jordan, beyond normalcy and into the place of the miraculous..  Many Christians run from one conference to another, from training programs to seminars; we follow ministers and ministries, listen to sermons, etc; but to what end?  We must come to a place where we go beyond hearing to doing the work, beyond learning into the place of coming to the knowledge and POWER of Almighty God.  Come, follow Pastor Pete and KQC Ministries as we follow Elisha to that place of the manifestation of God's POWER!
