    Grief Diaries Radio featuring TEDx Talk speaker Annah Elizabeth

    in Health

    Growing up in a rural part of Raleigh, North Carolina, Annah  always knew she wanted to be a mom.  After college, she moved to rural New York, married at age twenty-five, and soon thereafter conceived.  On May 11, 1990, Annah's labor progressed exactly as all the books and doctors had said it would, but unexpected complications arose during delivery leading to the death of her son.  Over the next six years, Annah would encounter two miscarriages, two complicated but successful pregnancies, a six-week psychiatric stay for severe depression, and then while pregnant with her youngest, she discovered that her husband and her best friend were having an affair.


    Throughout each ordeal she grieved.  She screamed those eternal questions, “Why me?” and “How am I going to survive?”  Throughout her journey, one thing was apparent to Annah:  there were numerous grief resources and outlets, but there were no tangible guides to help her once she decided, and then became determined, to celebrate her baby's life.


    Join Lynda & Angie on Wednesday, December 10, as they talk with TEDx Talk speaker Annah Elizabeth about loss and healing, and her philosophy behind The Five Facets.  For show information, visit www.griefdiaries.com.

    THE LADY LIFERS Sing About Life In Prison

    in Radio

    Have you heard of the TED Talks series? The inspirational talks have grown into a popular video series and can be an incredible resource for those looking to expand their horizons on topics they may not already be familiar with or learn a different side to a story they think that they already know. According to their website, “TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. ”


    In November 2014, a group of women known as The Lady Lifers took to the TEDx stage inside Muncy State Prison to sing about their experiences. These women have all been sentenced to life in prison and in Pennsylvania there is no chance at parole. Of the ten women who make up The Lady Lifers, many have been incarcerated for well over twenty years, and inmate Trina Garnett has been in prison since she was fourteen years old. After their powerful song, the women who have been primarily known by their inmate numbers definitively state their names and declare, “This is not my home.”


    The Washington Post recently made the argument

    #137 Devon Bandison - Fatherhood is Leadership

    in Education

    You are living a legacy of leadership. Right now, you have the opportunity to influence your customers, your co-workers, your community, and your children. It takes a village to raise a child. Devon Bandison believes that…with a twist. He believes every individual leader – that’s you – can influence life in a positive way. 


    Researchers have proved that father/child contact is associated with better socio-emotional and academic functioning. Results indicate that children with more involved fathers experience fewer behavioral problems and score higher on reading achievement. Devon knows that Fatherhood is leadership and Leadership Is Influence.


    Devon coaches fathers around the world on how to become high performing leaders and agents of change in the lives of their children. His signature talk “Fatherhood is Leadership” has gained national recognition and was a featured TED Talk at TEDx Boca Raton in March 2015. He brings a message of hope to fathers who have struggled with work-life integration.


    Adversity has served as Devon’s greatest teacher molding him into the modern leader and loving father he is today. With the pain of his parent’s divorce in early childhood and absent father addicted to drugs, staying on course for success proved to be challenging. However, as a young father a shift in perspective and a decision to choose growth over victimization transformed his life. Devon began the road to recovering his true self.  His leadership seminars and coaching programs inspire many leaders across the globe.


    It is the gifts of adversity that fuel Devon’s compassion and dedication to helping others find their voice, inspire hope and live their own legacy of leadership.
