Discuss their new book “WARRING WOMEN ARISE AND PRAY” When Women Pray Something Happens: Power Prayers During a Crisis.  Prayer is a vital lifeline that helps us to sustain and strengthen our relationship with God. Yet in times of crisis, fear and uncertainty can cause our faith to be tested causing us to lose sight of what we need to petition God for.  During these times we often struggle with our thoughts, feelings, and emotions when communicating with God.  This needed anthology is overflowing with heartfelt and insightful supplications that will elevate your communication with God to a new level. The prayers within these pages: requests for you, your family, community, business, and so much more, will encourage you through challenging times, renew and restore your hope, and lead you into the peace of God’s presence. If you are ready to become increasingly aware of God’s presence in your life, stand together strategic, organized, and unified for the glory of God to release a righteous revival in our land as you step out on faith while experiencing the greater intimacy for which you have been yearning, “WARRING WOMEN ARISE AND PRAY” will usher you into deeper and more purposeful encounters with God like never before. Listeners are welcome to listen here: http://tobtr.com/11770630.

Join me as we celebrate brain injury survivors around the world!  Brain Injury Awareness Month, observed each March, was established 3 decades ago to educate the public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of persons with brain injuries and their families.  Caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can lead to short or long-term changes affecting thinking, sensation, language, or emotion.  Each year, at least 2.5 million children and adults suffer from a TBI in the United States. Of those, 50,000 dies and 280,000 require hospital admission, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Most of us never imagine that our lives could be impacted by a serious brain injury, but between 3.2 and 5.3 million Americans live with long-term disabilities resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI). In fact, this number could be middle-of-the-road because many people, including professional athletes, may never seek treatment.   We can’t ignore this problem any longer!  So, join me and other brain injury survivors as we share tools and strategies to help raise awareness about the risks associated with brain injury.  Remember...education is the key to prevention!   Listen to her interview here:  http://tobtr.com/11688217

AUTHOR GUY LODGE

Guy Lodge, is a devoted father who home-schools his daughters. He found out what a valedictorian was at his graduation rehearsal when the principal said, “Let me introduce you all to your valedictorian and your salutatorian.”  That experience made him recognize the importance of being made aware of this honor as early as possible. “You can’t strive for something, if you don’t know it exists” He often says.  Therefore, he was moved to create this book to ensure that not only will readers strive to be a VALEDICTORIAN, but more importantly, they will adopt the VALEDICTORIAN frame of mind; and that simply means always trying their very best, at everything that they do.”  Additionally, witnessing the tremendous benefit his daughters experienced from early literacy, gave him a strong desire to share that information with other parents and that led to him launching the literacy organization, Learn 2 Read - Read 2 Learn LLC.  A strategic effort to positively affect the development of as many children as possible.
