There is a common practice among medical doctors that worth mentioning When anyone goes to visit a doctor, complaining of say high blood pressure or diabetes, he is given a form to fill our which contains a number of question that will help the doctor diagnose and treat the ailment. One of the questions always asks if anyone in the family has ever had any problem similar to the one brought for treatment. Why do doctors do this? The answer is simple. Although doctors are not experts in spiritual warfare doctors believe that if something afflicts a person, the offspring of that person are likely to be afflicted by the same medical problem.

Author and show host David Clarke is a retired social worker, a recovered alcoholic, and recovered sex addict. He has poured his years of intense experiences into his third novel, Shades of Gay. The first two were written under the pen name of Davis Aujourd'hui. They are The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude and Babes in Bucksnort. All of his novels have enjoyed rave reviews on Amazon.com.
David has found spirituality as a way to help fill the needs that could not be satisfied through his addictions. He is committed to spreading a message of hope to others which is what his radio show is all about. He is socially-minded and he wrote Shades of Gay as a way to share the pain of addiction and hope of recovery.
Davids radio show, Different Strokes for Different Folks is where you will be finding common ground and taking it to the next level. This show will encourage you to keep an open mind and prepare to open the door to new understandings. Despite all our seeming differences, you will discover we are all basically the same. Each week, there will be an exciting array of diverse guests - famous and common folk - who will point up the fact that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience.
This is a no holds barred show. It won't pull any punches. The guests will have differing spiritual belief systems and some will have no spiritual beliefs. You may or may not agree with things that are said. What you'll need to do is keep an open mind. This way, you'll see where you can find common ground so that you can relate rather than compare yourself to others. http://www.authordavidclarke.com/
