What We Know Now, featuring author, educator, and inspirational speaker Lynnie Vessels

What We Know Now, featuring author, educator, and inspirational speaker Lynnie Vessels

This evening, our show theme is curated from our HUMAN LIBRARY catalog titled What I Know Now. You often hear me say everyone has a story. And you know, I also believe that everyone is a story. Each of our stories reflects a journey, not a destination, a process, not an event. We are continually moving, continually growing, continually becoming. As long as we breathe, the end of our story has not yet been written. That means we have opportunities to edit the plot of our story to reflect our physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional evolution. Author Maya Angelou   says,…

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Thank you for your service featuring Brig-Gen, USAF, Ret. Sandra Gregory

Do you go the extra mile? Do you do more than what is expected? Do you expect the best? These questions pertain not only to your relationship with the world but also to how you treat yourself. Do you go the extra mile when it comes to you, or do you think that the least is enough for you? Going the extra mile means taking what you have and looking for ways to expand it— you believe in your ability to make it happen. Going the extra mile means doing just a little more than is expected, being just a…

Dr. Amile Exume Explores The Role of The Divine in His Life

Dr. Amile Exume Explores The Role of The Divine in His Life

Today I share once more words that awaken from the life coach and author in her 2000 book, Until Today.  And I quote: “Life will work for me when I realize …the experience of my faith keeps my faith alive. You must have faith and experience to live life fully. You must believe that everything you expect from life is possible. You must have faith that no matter what life brings to you, you will be able to handle it. You must have confidence that your faith will eventually lead to good experiences. Experience teaches you that your faith is…

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

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 service agency, Catholic Charities has served the needs of the…

Service is about you. Ask Asa and Naomi Nero

Service is about you. Ask Asa and Naomi Nero

” Service is about you. Service is about giving what you have to offer without expecting recognition or reward. It is about doing what needs to be done. It means giving 100 percent of your attention to what you are doing as long as you are able to do it without causing yourself harm. Give what you have to offer without expectation. Give with love. Give in Joy. More you cannot do. Less you must not do if it is your intention to be of service.” some words borrowed from life coach Iyanla Vanzant. Listen to how Gen Z’s brother…

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? WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Voices from the Future. Meet the Praise Warriors and Script Hop 101!

Voices from the Future. Meet the Praise Warriors and Script Hop 101!

The recent challenging cultural and societal circumstances have forced my heart to turn to our future and ask the question, “What About the Children…and those who love them”. The children are both our future and our now. What they see us do, what they hear us say, shapes who they become. To give the question a platform, Frankly Speaking, has been highlighting stories where young people speak for themselves through their testimonies, their gifts, conversations with peers, siblings, and parents. The outcome has created a dramatic landscape that is entertaining, creative, courageous, and inspiring.  I title these stories “Voices from…

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

Rotary Opens Opportunites Through Service with Meesh Peters in Swaziland

I echo the words of author and coach Iyanla Vanzant in her 2000 book, Until Today for her view of service. And I quote: “The greatest service I can offer is standing confidently in my power. It does not serve you or the world for you to behave as if you are powerless. You can think yourself into and out of any situation with which you are confronted. You have the ability to speak for yourself. You can defend yourself! Promote yourself. Encourage yourself. Teach yourself! Correct yourself. That is power. You have a heart. Through it, you can experience…

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

Moments of Mindfulness: An audio meditation experience with Sherrell Moore-Tucker

During the pandemic, have you been feeling intimate with physical, mental, emotional uncertainty and unrest? It seems that everything that can be shaken is shaking, where noise, angry noise appears to be drowning out laughter and love. I found I have been grieving the loss of power over my thoughts, my movements, my expectations, my finances, my future, my everything. So, I created Moments of Mindfulness as an emotional and spiritual band-aide for the hurt we are collectively feeling. All of us at the table have permission to find the stillness that allows authenticity and vulnerability to rise above the noise. We are going…

Moments of Mindfulness: We are isolated, but not alone.

Moments of Mindfulness: We are isolated, but not alone.

Today we fight not one, but two enemies. The invisible pandemic enemy and the enemy within. We are stuck between our no longer and our not yet. Stuck looks and feels like anxiety, depression, anger, and emotional isolation. Stuck makes it hard to know who and how to trust. And yet, we are not defeated. We have individual thoughts and words, the most powerful weapons of all. What if we used their positive energy to wage war on the enemy within, the one few are talking about, our mental well being? Someone said, “The virus attacks the lungs, but we…
