Sowing Seeds of Service above Self with Tonia Oldham

Sowing Seeds of Service above Self with Tonia Oldham

I love it when I get together, courageous enough to look and walk beyond words. Giving each other permission to expose gifts of imperfection without judgment. Frankly Speaking is our time and space to help, heal, educate, and encourage each other into the best version of ourselves no matter where we are in our journey. Our spiritual doggie bag this week includes a note from LOVE also known as God and as offered by author Glennon Doyle Melton and I quote: “Stop holding your breath. Breathe. There is enough. I have created an abundance of acceptance, attention, recognition, joy, peace, money,…

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia’s Lights

Thank you for your service with Sandra Gregory and Sylvia's Lights

I turn to our author and life coach, Iyanla Vansant to create our common thought space while we are together today. It was published in 2000 in her book Until Today. She begins with these questions: 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 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? There are people who believe that…

Thank you for your service women of the Vietnam War

Thank you for your service women of the Vietnam War

I am 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 100th year anniversary of WWI, we are reminded that war is a part of human history. My goal in November and December 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 concurrent war at home about the necessity of US involvement, while at…

There are some things we just don’t talk about. . . with Angela Peabody and F A Cole

There are some things we just don't talk about. . . with Angela Peabody and F A Cole

Author Susan Taylor says, “Loving is our strongest human need. In our effort to satisfy our deepest craving, we regularly look outside ourselves to find a person to love. Don’t you love being in love? I know I do. I’ve invested more time and energy in love relationships than I have in most other things. But a relationship with another person will never satisfy our hunger for love. Each of us is created in and of love. God loves us. God is love in us. Each of us is the very activity of love. We have all the love we…

Emma Allen and Juanita Temple discuss the stories that support us while we become.

Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories “Telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for while food makes us live, stories are what make our lives worth living.” Isak Dinesen says, “To be a person is to have a story to tell. —” Author  David Denborough, Ph.D., writes  “Who we are and what we do are influenced by the stories that we tell ourselves…There are many different events in our lives, but only some of them get formed into the storylines of our identities.

It’s March, National Women’s History Month when we intentionally recognize the ongoing great contributions women have made to our nation. Frankly Speaking with Tyra G is celebrating this month with a twist. We are looking at phenomenal women and how we embrace and manage our universal experiences, our rainbows and clouds, and our courage and resolve. We are a journey, not a destination; a process, not an event. Even when we are still, we are motion; loving, serving, nurturing, encouraging, and empowering. We are love and love does. But sometimes, sometimes we get stuck between our no longer the familiar,…

A courageous conversation about opioids with Lucy Caldwell

I want to open the door to a common thought space with some quotes from people who have walked into dark places and come up with dark solutions or who have loved others who have done so. I don’t know anyone who wakes up and say, “I want to be a criminal, I want to be homeless, or I want to be an addict. And yet sometimes the unlikely happens… Anonymous from Birmingham Alabama says: “I’m a good person. I’m a contributing member of society. I’m educated. I have a good job, make good money, have wonderful relationships with my…

Surviving human trafficking with Susan Young

Surviving human trafficking with Susan Young

Danielle Douglas was 17 years old, a freshman at Northeastern University, when she met the trafficker who forced her into two years of sex slavery. Her mother Jamie spoke with UNICEF USA about the factors that made her daughter vulnerable — and what parents need to know about trafficking in the United States. Jamie Chesman: We definitely had some mother-daughter angst. She didn’t always give me a lot of information about her life or interests. I think that a lot of our daughters feel like they’re ready before they’re ready — she definitely felt that way. We dropped her off, carloads full of things from Bed…
