REWINDING Courageous Conversations: Surviving Human Trafficking Featuring Susan Young.

Our theme these two months is Courageous Conversations. It's Big! And sometimes uncomfortable. To get a return on our investment, we must invest in our authenticity and vulnerability. We will have to be perfectly imperfect and receive, in love, information about issues that may be uncomfortable to think about, deal with, anticipate, and forgive. We will contemplate, evaluate, learn about, be surprised by, and celebrate. We discovered during previous shows that the ability to have a...

Legacy is about life and living, featuring poet, author, artist, and creator of The Urban Legend Series, Paris White

Legacy is about life and living. It's about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. A legacy may take many forms – children, grandchildren, a business, an idea, a book, a community, a home, some piece of ourselves. Our legacy naturally intrigues us. It's perfectly understandable that we would want to know how the world will remember us after we're gone. How many of us will be surprised? How many of us are living our lives so that our legacy reflects all...


This is Us featuring Linda Mann, artist extraordinaire, and resilience influencer.

Life coach Iyanla Vanzant says in her 2000 book Until Today, "Listen Carefully as if someone were whispering into your soul. There is something you must know. It is very important, no, it is imperative that you receive these words into the deepest core of your being. These words are essential to your very existence. They will feed, nurture, and nourish you. They will support, assist, and guide you. When all else fails, these words will give you the strength and courage you need to weather...


Building a legacy through The High Tea Society featuring Mariessa Terrell, Esq.

"Little girls learn a lot from the women they grow up around, whether they are related or not. Older women are like midwives who assist in the birth of a young woman's consciousness. It is not just what they do. It's who they are and how they demonstrate who they are that provides young women with "womanhood training." Young women and girls learn about themselves and what it means to be a woman by watching older women in their lives. They watch how and what (and if) they cook. They care what...


A Tradition of Service Above Self Featuring Stephen Carattini, President and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington VA

WHAT IF your family has fallen out of balance as you were navigating life and crisis was your new rhythm? WHAT IF you and your family are experiencing food insecurity or a lack of clothing and shelter? WHAT IF you are an expectant mother considering adoption for your baby and need both medical care and guidance in the decision-making process and placement? WHAT IF you are a New American or a refugee in need of assistance to learn English, apply for citizenship, or housing? WHERE CAN YOU GO?...


This Is Us featuring author, coach, and entrepreneur Sharon Kelly discussing blended families.

Per the U.S. Bureau of Census, 1300 new stepfamilies are formed each day. Forty percent of families in the U.S. are blended with at least one partner having a child from a previous relationship before marriage. The number of kids living in blended families has been stable for nearly thirty years. Children of Hispanic, Black, and white backgrounds are equally likely to live in this type of family. A little over a generation. You will increase your chances of successfully bonding with your new...


Self-Care as a Way to Community and Generational Care Featuring Writer and Teacher Alex Elle, Guest on NPR’s On Being

I don’t know if you have noticed in the past few years how many podcasts, self-help books, and talk shows have focused on surviving uncertainty, unrest, feelings of powerlessness, and sustaining and maintaining relationships. The term self-care has increased its presence in our vernacular, rustling its importance, but only present in authentic conversations and relationships. According to Google Trends, the number of searches for “self-care” has doubled since 2015. The World Health...


Were it not for those who care, featuring Ron Riggins, Chairman of the Board, Catholic Charities of Arlington.

There is a saying I read somewhere that stated, "if you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together." This journey called life seems necessarily codependent. What if you believed the most outstanding service you could offer in life is to be a light on the path? Your affirmation might say, "Today, I am devoted to shining the light of compassionate support and service on those who may be in need." Since 1947, when it first opened its doors as an adoption and children's...


For the eight-year-old in you featuring award winning author Kate DiCamillo with Krista Tippett.

The ideas that many parents want their children to embrace - ideas such as cooperation, kindness, or honesty - may be the most challenging concepts for parents to get across. In a flicker, youngsters spot a lecture coming and are quick to mentally retreat, leaving behind a black expression that nearly every parent recognizes with a sigh. Fortunately, "in their own back yard," parents already have a strategy that is fully capable of effectively delivering these messages to ready and open...


Women’s History Month Celebrates Service Women of the Vietnam War

Women's History Month is celebrating veterans and active-duty military who keep us and have kept us out of constant harm’s way, often at great costs. Considering this is the year after the 101st year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal is to share diverse war stories across the spectrum of age, gender, and race to include family impact and cultural legacies. The Vietnam war was my coming-of-age war. I became immersed in and confused by the...


Women’s History Month salutes women daring greatly, featuring Helenia Bragg and Kari Galloway and the story of Friends of Guest House

We begin Women’s History and Appreciation Month celebrating phenomenal women who walk into this space through many doors. They willingly share their stories authentically and often vulnerably in order to pay forward what they have learned and to celebrate each other. Thank you, ladies! Irish author C.S. Lewis says, “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You Too? I thought I was the only one.” As a result of the women who have agreed to join me at the...


Womens History Month, the origins, and the fight for the right to vote.

Women’s History Month in the United States grew out of a weeklong celebration of women’s contributions to culture, history, and the society organized by the school district of Sonoma, California, in 1978. Presentations were given at dozens of schools, hundreds of students participated in a “Real Woman” essay contest and a parade was held in downtown Santa Rosa. Did you know? To coincide with Women's History Month 2011, the White House issued a 50-year progress report on the status of women...


Black History Month salutes “Love in Action” with the late Congressman John Lewis and NPR’s Krista Tippett

First Corinthians 13: 4-8 says “Love is patient and kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth. ... Love never ends”. Wikipedia says, "Love is considered to be a positive and negative: with its virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection, as "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another"; and its vice...


“THIS IS US” featuring Cape Cod Entrepreneur Sandy Wycoff.

Life will accommodate you in any way that you choose. Life is always listening to the silent requests of your heart and mind. Life is always surveying the landscape of your heart, gathering the bits and pieces of the emotions buried there. Life can be an open book through which you can learn about great mysteries and wonders. Or life can be a mysterious and frightening pit through which you fear to tread. Or life can be a basket into which you can place your treasures, in which you carry...


Reflect, Restore, and Reposition with Brandon Cosby of OAR

JAIL is event-driven, choice involved, power stripping, and a visible shift. However, inside each inmate's jail cell is the power of transformation. Transformation is process-driven, choice involved, and resides internally. Opportunities, Alternatives & Resources (OAR) is missioned to rebuild lives and create a safer community with options, alternatives, and resources for justice-involved individuals and their families. OAR is a local non-profit restorative justice organization providing...


Trauma that does not go away: the loss of a child and a brother featuring the David Owens family.

Here in the United States, we began to see evidence of the unprecedented challenge to our health care systems and economy and wonder if our democracy would be strong enough to withstand the attacks on our constitution. Globally our world has been challenged in a way it had not been for over 100 years. An invisible enemy has invaded our privacy, routines, expectations, and hopes. Some of you, like me, have felt mental and emotional uncertainty and unrest. Everything that could be shaken is...


Were it not for those who care featuring Ambreen Rizvi, CEO and Founder of Brigade of Mercy

To create our common thought space for this show, I ask one of my favorite questions, “What if?” Those two words are pregnant with possibilities. So, what if you believed the most outstanding service you could offer in life is to be a light on the path? What if your life becomes a shining symbol for others. What if you let everything you do be of service to someone. What if you stand tall in the knowledge of who you are. What if you stand proudly during tough times. Your affirmation might...



What’s so special about celebrating the New Year? "Why does the start of the new year carry such special symbolism? And why is its celebration so common around the world, as it has been for at least as long as there have been calendars? Behavior this universal must surely be tied to something basic in the human animal, something profoundly meaningful and important, given all the energy and resources we invest not just in the celebration but also in our efforts to make good on a fresh set of...


Unwrapping your Gift: The Gift of Music featuring vocalist Mr. Everett Greene.

A 2018 blog written by musicians who declare they believe in music says, “Music is simply a very special language that everyone understands. There is no feeling that cannot be described and transported through music. It preserves memories for eternity, turns dreams into reality. It caresses the soul or screams unmistakably. Music conquers fear, dries tears, gives courage and strength. It is the safe and expressive home of our emotions – with all facets between joy and pain, irrepressible...
