    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1083

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Olivia Martinez from Pico Rivera, CA, child abuse survivor and Employment Coordinator at the California Department of Rehabilitation who says she always aims at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Immigrating from Mexico in the 60's her family lived in the largely Latino East LA area. Her father was a blue collar worker who suffered from alcoholism. "I always felt alone," she wrote. But her mother spend the majority of her time dealing with her father's alcoholism. Olivia was repeatedly sexually abused by a cousin, eight years older than her. The first incident of this was when she was about three, but the last time was in adulthood. "I grew up eating my anxiety away and reached 375 pounds in adulthood. I was fat and felt like a monster." Eventually she began working on herself. "I had gastric bypass and lost all my excess weight. I began kick boxing I learned how to physically to not let anyone hurt me gain. The recovery period has been long and imperfect." Olivia began therapy for the first time when unsuccessfully trying to prevent a break up with her boyfriend, but eventually found more appropriate help at the East Los Angeles Woman Center where they assist woman who have been sexually and/or physically abused. "I have developed a more keen relationship with myself," she says, "and continue to work on me and my developmental stages and inner conflict I go through every day. I now am ready to let the world know my story and take what happened to me and embrace all the good things of who I am. I am preparing to finally forgive men in general for what one man did to me, and I want to one day forgive him for changing the course of my life and introducing a struggle that will never go away."

    Earth Month Series – Preserving the Planet is a Family Affair: Paying it Forward

    in Environment

    Olivia and Carter Ries, One More Generation


    Kids do care about the future. Here’s proof. One More Generation (OMG) was founded by two elementary students in Fayetteville, GA. Carter (now 13) and his sister Olivia (now 11.5) are extremely passionate about animals and conservation and vowed to do something about it. Their pet project? They have been adopting Cheetahs in South Africa over the past few years – ever since they heard that Cheetahs, along with so many other species were close to extinction, they knew they had to act. So, of course, they started a totally independent nonprofit, and started educating other kids in every way you can imagine. Carter and Olivia have received a prestigious award from Captain Planet. And yes, I repeat, neither is old enough to drive. Don’t you want to join me? This show sponsored by Chapman Automotive.

    Are You waiting on your soul mate

    in Spirituality

    Soul mate!  Having a clear understanding of what this term means can help put your life into perspective.  When thinking in terms of finding their soul mate, many people are looking for their dream version or mental movie of Mr. or Mrs. Perfect.  Ironically, for most, finding Mr. or Mrs. Perfect remains an elusive dream.  It can also mean that people settle for less than they are wanting in a relationship or that they choose to remain single.  From a spiritual standpoint would Mr. or Mrs. Perfect be your true soul mate?  And under your current belief system, who said that you are only eligible for one soul mate per life time? 


    Join me Dr. Wendy Dearborne choice expert and Olivia Lashley expression coach as we explore the meaning of soul mate and what that can mean for you.

    A switch to Epic Nashville produced the critically-acclaimed Days Gone By album and yielded the top 5 hit “This Is Me Missing You,” and top 20 singles “Real Good Way To Wind Up Lonesome” and “Little By Little.”

    His latest album is entitled Songwriters Serenade. It features 10 songs co-written with James by some of the most successful songwriters in country music.
