    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After

    in Writing

    We are restarting our blog-radio show, "Heroes of Katrina."  Several years ago, we hosted the show under the generous support of Bonnie Kaye ("Books of Excellence"), who provided support for our efforts.


    We are now restarting the show under a thematic of "Ten Years After."  What are the heroes written about in the book, "Katrina:  A Freight Train Screamin'" doing now?  How have their lives changed.  What is new and interesting for them?


    All these questions are important, as Katrina changed many lives in many ways...As always we provide this show to exhibit a perspective of the resiliency of the human spirit.


    As the winds of Katrina blew, lives were changed.  People did what they had to do...and their stories reflect the power of human and perseverance and spirit.


    What better than ten years later do we explore lives affected and re-equlibrated and re-reflected.


    Please join us for an inspirational and reflective discussion on the human spirit as reflected by the changes of lives.

    Is College The Best Years Or The Worst Years?

    in Christianity

    College is often quoted as the best years of our lives, but from a godly perspective is this true? Are college kids having too much fun in college that they forget about The Lord? Is God the main priority in the college experience? Or are our children headed into a different world where God is mocked, blasphemed, disrespected and completely phased out. Is God getting the glory in your college experience?

    Heroes of Katrina: Ten Years After - Pets and Storms

    in Books

    Call in or ‘log in’ Tuesday Evening May 5th at 8:00 p.m. eastern and 7:00 p.m. central time, 6:00 p.m. mountain time, and 5:00 p.m. Pacific time.


    Welcome to the Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After


    Pets and Storms


    The demographics and statistics are amazing.  There are 2.5 animals (cats/dogs…etc. for every American home).


    When a population of almost a million evacuates an area and is forced to leave their pets behind…the result is 2.5 million animals…homeless…ownerless…destitute.  This was the situation during and after Hurricane Katrina.  Indeed the animal issue was largely overlooked by all the rescuing agencies Federal and otherwise.


    After Katrina, the animal population was largely overlooked within the rescue and aid infrastructure.  All of the guests on Tuesday's show were on the ground and dedicated to the rescue of the animals left behind.


    With hurricane season starting June 1st, this show is timely and hopefully can be used as a resource for the animal lovers of the Gulf Coast.


    Please join us this very special evening as we welcome our returning guest, Award Winning Author Jenny Pavlovic.  We will discuss an extremely important topic....preparing our beloved pets for a hurricane.  Jenny Pavlovic, animal rescuer and author of the award winning book, “The 8 States of Hurricane Kate,” will share very valuable advice and insight regarding the necessary precautionary measures needed to safeguard our furry friends and all animal creatures BEFORE a hurricane strikes. Hurricane season is fast approaching - June 1 through November 30, 2015. It's not too early to listen and learn what to do in advance. Please don't wait until it's too late. Feel free to call in and share, comment, question, discuss with Jenny.

    WHAT ELEVEN DAY TRIP HAS TURNED INTO YEARS BECAUSE OF YOUR MINDSET?

    in Spirituality

    How important it is for us to have the right mindset. When you hear about the Israelites being lead out of Egypt by Moses, The journey from Egypt to Canaan, was an 11-DAY JOURNEY! These people took 40 YEARS TO GET THERE! Most of them DID NOT GET THERE! Why you ask? Because of their mindset. They had a negative mindset. They were ungrateful, fearful, whiny, and idolatrous. Jeremiah 29:11 – For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Their prayers were answered, but they complained so much that they made a 250 mile journey take 40 years!  ONLY 2 made it to the promised land. Joshua and Caleb  because of their faith, belief, and grateful attitude towards God. WHAT JOURNEY IN YOUR LIFE IS TAKING YOU SO LONG BECAUSE OF YOUR WRONG ATTITUDE? When you are untrusting of God,  the long way to your destination. You could be there in eleven days, but because you are so scary and don’t trust in God enough, He will take you the longer route.  He will not ask you to embark upon a journey where He could not supply your need. He even provided them a cloud and some fire to lead them. He will be your Jehovahjireh even when you act a fool! Matthew 6:25-26 – Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? It is so sad that these people never lived a good life. They were in bondage for so many years, and they died never seeing the promised land. How dare they pray for so many years for something and then not even appreciate it! Don’t pray to God for so many years about something if you can’t follow through with it.

    Author Cary Black is the author of “Katrina: A Freight Train Screamin’.”  The book tells the real story of the worst natural disaster to hit the United States.  It chronicles the stories of the people who were on the ground savings lives, the people who were reaching out to rescue the millions of abandoned animals, and the people who survived and heroically came back, dug in, and rebuilt their lives from the chaos.  The stories reflect the thoughts of regular folks having to fight for their lives and finding heroism in their souls as they struggled to deal with the enormity of the storm.
