How many people have ever been stuck in an elevator? It's not a good feeling. For one thing, you're standing there for a while, pressing the button and hoping someone will come soon. Then as you continue to wait, the walls close in on you and your breath is lodged in your throat -- and that is if you're NOT claustrophobic. For those who suffer from claustrophobia, it's a lot worse. They panic, bang on the doors, the roof, close their eyes, hold their breaths or just faint. Staying caught up in the past is a lot like being stuck in the elevator. You're not moving at all. Going up and down isn't an option. You're waiting on help to get you out there. In order words, you're looking for a way to get out of the box. Humans were not created to stand still. We were created to move, to grow, and to strive upward.
When we remain in the past due to an event or a series of events, good or bad, we cannot do what we are purposed to do. Move forward. That's why we become stuck in yesterday. We've all seen the sitcoms where the character is dressed up in polyester with bell bottoms and afro thinking they're hip. They refuse to move with the times because they're living in yesterday. We all know people who have suffered a traumatic event and still can't get over it.

They make us laugh, by the funny things they say and the funny things they do. Comedians paint a picture of their lives as it relates to their environment and makes it relevant to us. So naturally, we expect to see them in stand-up comedy spots, specials, sitcoms, and comedic roles in movies. Yet a select few have made the transition over to the "other" side of the room, and delved into dramatic films. Tonight, our conversation is focused on three such professionals: Jackie Gleason, Mo'nique and Jamie Foxx.

Maria Howell stops by Speak Live Nation with Cedric Nettles and shares her start as an actress as she will be forever rememebered in a certain magical scene in The Color Purple. She is a very talented actress, voice over artist, and singer.
Some may be inspired to call her best kept secret, but anyone who leaves an imprint on every medium from radio, stage and television to the Hollywood screen is hardly incognito. Howell's talent has been featured as a nightclub singer "Goldie", in "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles", produced by George Lucas (Chicago and NY episodes, which also features veteran actor Keith David). Other roles on the small screen include "Linda", where she plays alongside master performers Richard Thomas (The Waltons) and Virginia Madsen (Sideways) and in "Scattered Dreams" with Tyne Daly (Judging Amy) and Alicia Silverstone (Clueless and Beauty Shop).
Her credibility as a true thespian flourished when she nailed a coveted role as the daughter of Maya Angelou's character in Langston Hughes' "Tambourines to Glory" stage play. She has worked with famed actor, director and producer, Tyler Perry in film, "Daddy's Little Girls" and in his TV sitcoms "Meet the Browns"and "House of Payne" (TBS).
Practical steps to embrace God's mission for single Dads
Conventional wisdom holds that fathers have few parenting skills and that mothers always know best. The single father is often considered a mythical creature, found only in sitcoms as an object of humor or pity. Where does that leave real single dads? Too often, it makes them susceptible to overcompensation or apathy.
Tez Brooks knows those feelings all too well. He’s traveled that road with his own children after an unexpected divorce. The Single Dad Detour is the result of his journey and the lessons he’s learned along the way. It’s a guidebook for the rocky road of single fatherhood, extending encouragement, confidence, and challenges, using specific examples from dads who’ve survived parenting and have hope to offer.
There are no unreachable requirements for perfect fatherhood here and no twisty theological mysteries—just authentic, down-to-earth wisdom from one dad to another.
Tez Brooks is the father of four children and a missionary filmmaker for The Jesus Film Project. He has also been a journalist for Cru and a Florida law enforcement officer. Tez has been speaking and writing books and articles for over thirty years.
Practical steps to embrace God's mission for single-again dads. --Bill Hodgson, national director Campus Crusade for Christ Australia
If I were a single parent on this journey, I'd want Tez's comforting voice on my GPS. It's a warm and understanding voice that's traveled the back roads and knows where it's going. --Rick James author of Jesus Without Religion and A Million Ways to Die
For an easily overlooked demographic, Tez Brooks wisely, honestly, and courageously deep-dives into how divorced fathers can survive being single and still be really good dads. --Rohan Dredge, founder and CEO New Level Leadership
