    Turning Your Mess into a Message with Writer and Poet LaCretia Lewis

    in Radio

    In this episode of GaptoothDiva Radio, we discuss the journey of turning your mess into a message. S many of us have endured struggles and challenges in life, but very few of us use those obstacles as an opportunity to uplift and inspire others.


    We are on the air with our special guest, LaCretia Lewis, also known as "Forepleasure". A 36-year old Richmond, VA native and a proud mother to three daughters. Having become a single parent at the age of 16, LaCretia holds a special place in her heart for young women that have endured a similar journey.


    LaCretia’s passion is to empower young people, who much like her, have been and are facing daunting challenges. Today's youth grapple with abuse, depression, peer pressure, pregnancy, and sexual issues ranging from harassment to identity, at a much earlier age. Through her organization, BRANDED, LaCretia aspires to provide the "village" and offer young people a safe space, and wise counsel, in addition to tangible tools for success, as they navigate life's rocky terrain.


    Listen in as we come back with more of the off the cuff entertainment but with real and honest conversation surrounding topics related to you. Using Fashion, Music, Culture, Entertainment, and Lifestyle.

    Finding Joy in Every Situation: A Look at Gratitude ~ Cathy Towle

    in Spirituality

    A lot of people are looking for purpose, to find the right work and the right path. Something is calling you and you don’t quite yet know what it is. We search and wait for answers. We try out many things. What we often forget, is that this Right Path starts inside of us as gratitude. It’s not the finding of the perfect thing that makes us happy, it’s the act of being happy that brings the right things, people and opportunities right into our lives. In a state of appreciation, we are connected to joy and can view even the most challenging things as a blessing. Cathy will talk about how her connection to her guides helped her out of many difficult situations and how your own guidance can do the same.



    Cathy Towle is an Interfaith Minister and Spirit Medium providing Intuitive Guidance and healing messages from spirit. Cathy is one of the few mediums certified by Forever Family Foundation, was ordained by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and is initiated into the shamanic path. Cathy has worked with leading spiritual teachers, including Andrew Harvey, with whom she founded the Institute for Sacred Activism. She is on the Executive Council of the Committee for Spirituality, Values and Global Concerns (CSVGCNY) at the UN, and writes for The Village Newspaper in New York. She speaks about Eco-Spirituality and heads the CSVGC-NY Eco-Spiritual Working Group.

    International Sunday School Lesson

    in Spirituality

    Mark 11


    1And when they came nigh to Jerusalem, unto Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, he sendeth forth two of his disciples,


    2And saith unto them, Go your way into the village over against you: and as soon as ye be entered into it, ye shall find a colt tied, whereon never man sat; loose him, and bring him.


    3 And if any man say unto you, Why do ye this? say ye that the Lord hath need of him; and straightway he will send him hither.


    4And they went their way, and found the colt tied by the door without in a place where two ways met; and they loose him.


    5And certain of them that stood there said unto them, What do ye, loosing the colt?


    6And they said unto them even as Jesus had commanded: and they let them go.


    7And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.


    8And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.


    9And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:


    10Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.


    11And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
