    S6 E6: And God gave Freewill pt 2

    in Lifestyle

    We are going to discuss the why part of the Adam and Eve story. Why did God leave the tree? Why did Adam sin when he knew it was wrong? Why did God through them out before eating of the other tree? Why and so forth. The questions continue to go on and on. Listen so we can discuss and understand the story a bit more. We will get on the ball to be better believers in Christ. The likeness of God is what we are, not what we been. This subject will be altered and a Francis Chan episode will be aired.

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with She Writes Press Author Irene Allison

    in Writing

    So excited to welcome to the #courageous #living podcast, She Writes Press author, Irene Allison of the upcoming non-fiction book, Stay, Breathe with Me. We'll be talking about the theme of courage as it relates to her work and upcoming book, Stay, Breathe with Me. 

    As she writes over at the She Writes blog, "it takes courage to share your writing with the world because everyone has something to say, sometimes in ways that nurture, sometimes in ways that scorch."

    Serious, incurable illness is a drama of body, mind, and soul where symptoms and suffering cannot be separated from the person who is ill. Yet that is what happens in our modern medical system, a system so focused on technology and cure, it loses sight of the person behind the illness. The result is cruel and needless suffering. In Stay, Breathe with Me, the authors make the argument that it’s time to revive the art of care. If we fully embrace the human side of illness, if we remove the false barriers separating caregivers from the seriously ill, we can meet in that space of shared humanity and universal human needs.

    This is the space of heart and compassion, where healing hands can be guided by the wisdom of the patient and where suffering can be eased. Informed by the voices of the seriously ill, their families, and the lifelong experience of a pioneer in palliative care, Stay, Breathe with Me illustrates how to bring heart back into healthcare and compassion for those who need it most.

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with SWP Author Norine Dworkin-McDaniel

    in Business

    Is selling books something that can be self-taught? Are you doomed if you don't think like an extrovert? What kind of skills do you need? What works and doesn't in the promotional world?

    In 2013, Norine Dworkin-McDaniel created the illustrated humor blog Science of Parenthood with Jessica Ziegler, named one of Parenting.com’s “blogs every parent should read.” Together they’ve published three books, including The Big Book of Parenting Tweets and The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets.

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Destiny Allison

    in Writing

    This week I'll be interviewing Destiny Allison about the theme of courage in her latest book The Romance Diet: Body Image and the Wars We Wage on Ourselves:

    Brave, raw, and unflinchingly honest, this book is a weight loss journey, a love story, a heart beating loudly on the page. Every day we battle against something--injustice, our spouses, our weight. Seldom do we acknowledge the real wars we wage. Repressing feelings and silencing our voices, we suffer under the surface, attributing emotional distress and unwanted pounds to the inescapable effects of hormones or age.

    But weight gain, anxiety, and marital difficulties aren't always so easy to explain.

    In her poignant and touching memoir, Allison doesn't offer recipes, exercise tips, or advice. Instead, she shows us how to stand up, express what we want, and develop empathy for ourselves and the people we love. In doing so, she provides invaluable insight for those seeking to lose weight, save a marriage, or make a significant life change.

    About the Author:

    Destiny Allison was a professional and award-winning sculptor. Her work is collected by individuals, civic entities, and corporations worldwide. When an injury required her to re-envision her life, Allison did what she always does. She applied her explosive creativity and dog-with-a-bone tenacity to new endeavors.

    In 2011 she was named Santa Fe Business Woman of the Year. Her community building efforts and innovative business model transformed a bankrupt shopping center into a thriving community and commercial center.

    In 2012 she published her first book, Shaping Destiny: A quest for meaning in art and life. The book won best independent non-fiction/memoir in the 2013 Global Book Awards.

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Bob Walicki

    in Writing

    Dorit Sasson of Giving Voice to Your Courage, interviews Bob Walicki, a Pittsburgh based poet and the curator of VERSIFY, a monthly reading series in Pittsburgh, on the role courage has taken him from challenging the traditional roles of what it means to be a sensitive man in a field that looks on his poetic sensitivity as a weakness. 


    His work has appeared in HEArt, Stone Highway Review, Uppagus, The Kentucky Review,Grasslimb, and on the radio show Prosody. He won 1st runner up in the 2013 Finishing Line Open Chapbook Competition and was awarded finalist in the 2013 Concrete Wolf Chapbook Competition. He currently has two chapbooks published: A Room Full of Trees (Red Bird Chapbooks, 2014) and The Almost Sound of Snow Falling (Night Ballet Press, 2015). He lives in Verona, PA with his wife, Lynne, and two cats.


    Bob Walicki has worked for years in the construction industry and as a plumber. As a poet, he's been the target of prejudices because he didn't fit into those traditional roles. Often he has to hide being a poet in the building trades industry though he says, "recently it's been liberating to write about those experiences in my new chapbook, "The Almost Sound of Snow Falling."
