    Financial and Social Destruction Tom Donnan pt 2 There is no doubt we are living in the last of the last days. Everything around us is falling apart. The economy, the supply chain, oil and gas supplies – even society is falling apart faster than anyone could predict. Our government is broken, our leaders are imbeciles and traitors. Our churches are broken and weak. The ONLY thing left is God. And, for the most part, Americans have forsaken Him, too. That is the outlook for this nation and the world right now. Wars and rumors of wars. Famine, pestilences and diseases, hyper-inflation, crime out of control, murder rates rising. More and more mass shootings. And all of that is the “good news.” It is getting worse day by day – and I thank God for it! Amen! Brother Bob!  How can you say you thank God for all of this bad new? Simple, because His Word tells us it is going to be just like this immediately before the return of Jesus! Praise God!  THAT – IS GOOD NEWS!  At least for believers!  Amen! Matthew 13 verses 16-17 and Luke 10 verses 23-24 tell us what Jesus informed His disciples of – and, since we are His disciples also, He is speaking to us. He said, “Blessed are YOUR EYES because the see and YOUR EARS for they hear. For I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men desired to see the things that you see but did not see and to hear the things that you hear but did not hear it.” Folks, the culmination of the ages is about to happen right before our very eyes!  For believers, we also have the promise to escape the worst part of it! Praise God! I'm not going to take the time to teach on this because that's not the purpose of todays program. But  you can do your own studies of 1 Thessalonians 4:17 and then Revelation chapters 1-3 that talk about the church – and then it's not mentioned again as the Tribulation on folds – especially after John is told to “come up here.” But, again, that's not the point of today's program. Today is part two of another great interview, with Tom Donnan, who is back to share some warnings about things happening right now as he was shown by the Holy Spirit. These are not good messages for anyone who is an unbeliever. Unless they get born again prior to the triggering event, whatever that may be. Amen! You recently took a trip and the Lord was showing you some things as you were traveling, correct?  Share those things with us… Missouri – strong occult presence combating the church and the people… Texas – a literal dream? Plans that Iran has to assassinate President Trump?  I've seen the reports where some Iraqi's were planning on assassinating President Bush…  What did the Lord show you about this? New Mexico – a two God system. The Christian God and the ancestorial fathers of the native American Indians as they struggle understanding which God to follow… Arizona – you say this state is a bit different and that there is a move of God happening there? But there are some issues… The Grand Canyon/Government Land 1 a huge warehouse controlled by corrupt people, not the owners. 2 National Divorce. The rightful leader returns to restore it to the way it was. And tell us about Colorado… I used to love this state.  But it's got some huge spiritual problems right now… this State has made unbiblical choices. Durango, during the night I entered intercession against demonic control. There is obvious gender confusion in the State and it's encouraged. Folks, there can be no doubt in the mind of any believer that the end is very, very near. Only a fool would continue to say that “all is well,” like our government officials try to tell us. If this nation refuses to repent; if this nation continues to follow the ungodly paths it has been on – this nation can be written off in one day, if the Lord wills. There is no guarantee for next year. There is no guarantee for tomorrow. The only guarantee we have is death, and then the Judgement....

Help me welcome back to the program, our good friend, Tom Donnan! Tom, thank you for joining us again today. I've been looking forward to our conversation today and I know our listeners will get a lot out of this, if they are paying attention to what is happening every single night on the news. Amen! You shared with me that the next shock wave that is about to hit humanity is going to come in three different waves. Let's take them one at a time and go through them. What is shock wave number one? So, we see the financial shock wave hitting right now. This government has just flooded the economy with cash that has no backing to it at all. It literally is dropping the value of the dollar. Which means it takes MORE dollars to purchase things – which is called INFLATION.  And that is happening as we speak. What is shock wave number two? I've seen reports that companies are moving into neighborhoods and offering two and three times the value of house in some areas, just out bidding any offers on homes for sale. They then intend to rent these home out. Which means the American dream of actually owning your own home is soon going to be a thing of the past. Nobody will be able to afford to out bid these corporations. And what is shock wave number three? We've discussed the increase in earthquakes all over the world, but especially in this nation. In areas where we traditionally have not seen earthquakes. I continue to hear rumors about the rumblings under Yellowstone National Park, they are increasing in numbers not seen before. If that super volcano blows, it will destroy 1/3 of the nation and whatever is left of the agriculture in this land. We will...

    Communicating Like a Rock Star Brenden Kumarasamy pt 2 Everyone has a story to tell. Think about it. At work, you tell stories to make a point. At home, you tell stories to make a point. At church, your pastor tells stories to make a point. Jesus told stories to make a point. But, few people master the art of storytelling. After our program today, you will be able to take great forward strides, because my guest today helps people to do just that. Many people struggle with the idea of speaking from a stage or on video. They worry about how they will look, how they will sound, what can they talk about? Brenden Kumarasamy is the founder of “MasterTalk,” a YouTube series dedicated to the art of public speaking. Brenden believes anyone can become confident public speakers and storytellers. Breneden is also the founder of http://rockstarcommunicator.com/ (“RockStarCommunicator.com”) From students to CEO's Brenden teaches you how to master your speeches, presentations and interview and podcasts, etc. One of your videos talks about “the endless gaze.” I have learned how to use pauses for effect in speaking – but the “endless gaze” is priceless. Can you explain that for our listeners and how to use it in a presentation? How does the “endless gaze” and the “random word exercise” help if someone is introverted and trying to enter the public speaking arena? How do we master the art of speaking on camera effectively?  Some people find it difficult to talk into a cold, dark camera lens… What about the use of scripts? Should someone use scripts when making video presentations or a video recording? Brenden, this has been so interesting, as it always is when you are on. I think this next question is fitting for a closing question. How can we actually give a great close to OUR presentations? I've seen a great many presentations actually fall flat because of a poor close. How you teach your clients to do a great close? Tell us about your training program on your website, http://rockstarcommunicator.com/ (rockstarcommunicator.com)… All of your YouTube videos are under the title of “MasterTalk,” correct? Brenden you are one my favorite guests to have on the program. You always bring such clarity to the, sometimes, confusing world of public speaking. If someone has a question or wants to get in touch with you, maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? Folks, whether you realize it or not, you are already a public speaker. It may be at work and you are trying to communicate an idea to your boss or co-workers. You may be the boss and you are trying to communicate an idea to your subordinates or possibly your boss. Either way, you are trying to influence someone. You could be in the ministry trying to influence someone to make a decision for Christ... You could be in business and trying to influence someone that your products or services are the one that will help your customers the most... It does not just apply to speaking from stages. It is applicable in almost every aspect of life. Amen! Brenden Kumarasamy is THE expert in this area. I've been following him for almost three years now. He has helped me immensely – just from his YouTube videos! Amen! Just drop down below and click the links right there to get in touch with Brenden Kumarasamy right now.

Amen! Help me welcome back to the program, Brenden Kumarasamy. Brenden, thank you for coming back on the program! I do appreciate it! Brenden, for those that may have not heard our interview from a few years back, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Brenden Kumarasamy?” Tell us about your YouTube program, “MasterTalk…” Where did the idea for “MasterTalk” come from? How many individual episodes have you created? Do you know? What is the biggest challenge that most people struggle with when doing public speaking? We've all heard about starting off with a joke or a funny story when giving a talk. Is that something you recommend? You've got a program where you discuss the importance of the first 10 seconds of your presentation. Can you explain the importance of those 10 seconds for us? The last time we talked, the COVID lockdowns were in full force. This meant everything moved from in person to virtual events and you were helping us understand a few steps to help with that transition. Has things opened back up for in person events or are we still mainly dealing with virtual speaking right now? What do you believe the next six months to a year will hold for public speaking opportunities? In our presentations, is the delivery or the content more important to focus on? What about books? What books do you recommend some read for help in public speaking? Another area that jumped out at me was your use of a “random word exercise.” Can you explain how that works and give us an example? You have a phrase, “Prioritize to maximize.” Can you explain that for us? One of your videos talks about “the endless gaze.” I have learned how to use pauses for effect in speaking – but the “endless gaze” is priceless. Can you explain that for our listeners and how to use it in a presentation? Folks, whether you realize it or not, you are already a public speaker.

    Listen Sister! – Finding Hope in the Freakshow of Life Tess Scott pt 1 https://amzn.to/3MyjBmQ ()I grew up outside of little town in Michigan called Marysville. This town, at the time, had about 4000 people in it. Our entire high school consisted of 713 people, all four grades. Our house was out in the country. There was a good ¼ mile between neighbors, except my great-grandmother and two uncles families that lived a couple hundred yards away. I spent many a day playing with my cousins. Since I was the oldest, playing with these “little kids” soon became boring and I learned how to entertain myself, playing out in the woods and things like that. I could even play an entire 9 inning baseball game, by myself, playing both sides – and sometimes lose to the “other me!” Anyway, my grandparents lived on the St. Clair River. Sometimes we would grab innertubes and they would take us several miles up the river and let us float down and across the mile wide river to Canada.

Now, let me do a quick disclaimer here before we get started.  We are not doing this on purpose, it's just the way we were raised. But whenever two red-blooded Canadian backgrounded people get together, you are probably going to hear a few “eh's” flying around! Ok!  It's kind of like the “y'all's” when people from down south are talking. It's just part of the normal conversation, ‘eh!” Tess, usually the first question I start with is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Tess Scott?” How did you come up with the idea for this https://amzn.to/3MyjBmQ (book)?

    Creating S.P.A.C.E. in Our Families Russell De Vos pt 2 https://catalystcoachinghq.com/ ()In society today, we often find ourselves being pulled in so many different directions, we don't really know which way is the right way.

Today, we will be talking with Russel De Voss about “SPACE” (not the final frontier kind)! Russel De Vos has been on our program before. He shared how he grew his church in Bend, Oregon from just a handful of people to over 1500 in only three years! Praise God!  But, the pressures of the job and some other things led his eventual defeat. Not focusing on God, not focusing on his family, cost him the church and almost his family. Since that time, he and his wife, Heather, have worked through the trying times and are now happier than ever. They serve together and are now helping others who are going the same troubles and helping them to overcome through the blood of the Lamb and their testimony. Praise God. He and his wife work with parents who usually have teenage sons that are typically in trouble. Trouble with the law, on drugs, etc., many who may have been sent to boarding schools and “teen challenge” programs.

Explain the story of S.P.A.C.E. What is this about and how did it come to be? What does S.P.A.C.E. stand for? S = Step back or Slow down P = Presume noble intent A = Ask clarifying questions C = Curiosity nor condemnation in asking questions E = Extend advice only IF asked for (no lecturing) This isn't one of those “Dr. Spock” types of things is it? Your ministry is mainly with the dads. What do you help them with? S.P.A.C.E. will help men to actually talk with (and not talk at or talk to) their children? Russell, this is all so interesting. How can our listeners find out more information or to get in touch with you if they would like you to come out and teach a seminar, retreat, etc.? How can they get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of this down in the show notes below. Folks, all you have to do is walk outside your house and observe what is happening in our culture and in our society today. We can see the decay. We can see (and hear about) the violence ravaging our cities, this nation – and even the world today.

    Where Crisis and Christ Collide  Jennifer Sienes Is it possible for God to take our “mess” and turn it into a message? I would have to say, “Absolutely! That's my life story!” Amen! So many people today are having issues. Issues in life. Issues in their family. Issues in business. Sometimes it can get hectic and seem out of our control. But if we are honest, the Lord is still speaking to us. He is urging us to “turn it over to Him.” He can handle it, I guarantee it. But there are some that can put these events, these emotions and these feelings into stories. Stories that rivet us to the character and allow us to see things through the eyes of another. By doing so, the allow the Lord to reach a part of our soul that can then shed some light on our issues. This is what our guest today has been able to accomplish with her writings. Jennifer Sienes was born to write. But she put it off. For years. She became a teacher and enjoyed that work, but the love and calling of writing never left her. When her daughter suffered a terrible accident that caused her to go through months of rehab due to a traumatic brain injury, her marriage falling apart and several other personal tragedies, she began writing. Today, she is the author of several contemporary women's fiction and romance books, but has now transitioned into romantic suspense novels. Through her tragedies, God has given her a gift that allows her to develop her characters and write with emotion that bridges the gap between the written page and the readers heart. Help me welcome to the program, Jennifer Sienes! Jennifer, thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to come visit with us today! First question, other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Jennifer Sienes?” You were called to write for many years before you actually took the plunge. You became a wife, mother, teacher – why didn't you pursue writing even on a part time basis back then? Your daughters accident, you say, was basically your wake-up call to finally pursue writing. What is the book, https://amzn.to/3tno6Jq (“Illusions”) about? Tell us about your book, https://amzn.to/3aQmmSM (“Providence…”) Your first series was “Apple Hill.” Correct me if I'm wrong, but these books were contemporary women's fiction and romance. But now, you are transitioning into “romantic suspense” novels? Why the change? You use your life experiences to create you books and characters. Can you explain a little of how that works and some examples? Who is “Tess O'Shay?” You're a believer. You love the Lord. How does that message come through your work as a writer? What are some of the take-aways you want you want your readers to gain by reading your books? I believe the series you are currently working on is “Bedford County.” In fact, you published the first book in that series https://amzn.to/3O8e7Qt ((Night Songs)). Can you explain the background for the series, “Bedford County?” What does the future hold for your writing? As I was preparing for this interview, there was one thing I found that I just had to ask you about.  I need to know about the inspiration you receive from Gracie and Einstein? Jennifer, this has been so interesting. To hear the inspiration and back story to some of your works. How can someone order your books? Are they on Amazon? If someone has a question or would like to get in touch with you, maybe to do an interview like this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of that down in the show notes below. Folks, sometimes we need to let our imaginations take over in order to guide us through the daily turmoil in our lives. Jennifer Sienes books help you to do just that, but also keeps the core message relevant throughout the books. I urge you to drop down into the show notes below and order some of her books right now.

Every year, more and more of the heroes of that day are passing away. Soon, there will be none. When that day comes, a page will turn in the history books. But to capture the heart and soul of that day, to keep it forever in the forefront of our memories, became a passion of our guest today. Doug Stebleton decided it was time for the world to know some of the people that turned survival into victory. That turned their fears into courage. That turned the sorrow of over 5,000 dead and buried in one small town into a life-long ministry of compassion and to tell the story of many stories, all in order to honor those who gave their all to keep the world free. Doug Stebleton has been working in the entertainment business since 1987. Born and raised in Glasgow, Montana, he came to Hollywood at age 19 and has lived and worked in southern California since then. His expertise is music publishing for film and television. His company owns a catalog of songs that are licensed to film and television studios and to independent productions. Doug is not only a film producer, but an author as well. But it is his love of history that drives him to make films and documentaries that are inspiring, informative and educational – all at the same time. His love and passion for history led Doug to create and produce the film, http://www.motherofnormandy.com/ (“The Mother of Normandy,”) which he has turned into a hard cover book and, recently, an e-book! Praise God! Doug shares how the cemeteries in this town came to be and how the “mayor” of the town started to receive letters from American families wanting information on their fallen soldiers… Simone Renaud became famous when a photograph of her in “Life Magazine” showed her putting flowers on the grave of Brig. General Teddy Roosevelt, Jr.  How did her life change after that was published? In the book, is it Maurice took over staying in contact with relatives of GI's and things like that after his mother passed away? As the soldiers and families of that era pass away, has he noticed a falling off of interest in visitors and inquiries? There was a US Paratrooper that landed on the church steeple in Sainte Mere Eglise, and that Mayor Alexander Renaud and his son stayed at his house when they visited the United States. I bet that was a great reunion. Amen! How did the making of your film and the research for the book affect your perspective of D-Day? Doug, as June 6th is now upon us again, I believe there is a renewed interest, I pray there is a renewed interest, in learning the behind the scenes activities of the heroes and heroines that supported the liberation of France, Europe and ultimately the defeat of Nazi Germany. How has your film been received? I know, when I was a Cavalry Officer, I studied military history – and that has continued to this day. Especially World War II history. I also believe if we do not learn for the lessons of history then we are doomed to repeat history.

We see movies and such where a writer goes off to a mountain cabin for six months or a year as a recluse and re-emerges with a best-selling novel. Or they go on a cruise for six months and come back with a book. Is that realistic and is that what you did? Do you do one chapter per day? One page per day? Is there a set amount? What about character development? In your book, https://amzn.to/3zasYFP (“Terror Strikes,”) your character is Martin, a Detroit newspaper reporter. How long did it take for you to develop that character? Is there a set writing style for different genres? Fiction, religion, novels, etc.? Tell us about your writing style and how it came about and how you developed it… So you write your chapters and finally, it's finished. Or is it? Once you have the first draft completed, do you turn it over to an editor or do you begin to self-edit first? Can't we just set it aside for a couple of days or weeks and then go back and edit ourself again? How many edits do you usually go through before deciding to turn it over to someone else?

She seemed to have it all. And then things changed. Her life become totally focused on survival. Chronic pain ravaged her body. Doctors had no clue as to why. They stuck, prodded, probed and examined numerous times. All sorts of test (and can I relate to that). Then, one day, Barby decided enough was enough and SHE became her own “Chief of Staff” for her medical team.  And I will let her explain that as we get into the interview. Barby has been on our program a few times in the past and the information she shares blessed so many of our listeners, I'm sure it will do the same today as well.  She is also the author of several books dealing with this issue, such as https://amzn.to/3spAEiY (“From Wheels to Heals,”) which is the first one I read, getting ready for our first interview back in 2018! Praise God! This is part two of what turned out to be a great, two part interview! Your foundation helps people from all over the world find support services and resources to help their conditions. Can you go over a few of the most popular services? This next topic is a big one. What about managing pain killers? I know the laws and medical practices concerning prescription pain killers have changed since the last time we talked. Is it still a major issue?

    The International Pain Foundation  Barby Ingle pt 1 I have a very important topic for you today…and one that is very near and close to my heart…one which affects me as well as millions of people each and every day – and that is how to cope with chronic pain…be it from injury, as in my case, or from hereditary diseases or any number of a myriad of causes…one which many people have a hard time understanding – even very close family members… On the line with us today is Barby Ingle from http://www.internationalpain.org/ (the International Pain Foundation)…Barby is a former model and professional cheerleader. She seemed to have it all. And then things changed. Her life become totally focused on survival. Chronic pain ravaged her body. Doctors had no clue as to why. They stuck, prodded, probed and examined numerous times. All sorts of test (and can I relate to that). Then, one day, Barby decided enough was enough and SHE became her own “Chief of Staff” for her medical team.  And I will let her explain that as we get into the interview. Barby has been on our program a few times in the past and the information she shares blessed so many of our listeners, I'm sure it will do the same today as well.  She is also the author of several books dealing with this issue, such as https://amzn.to/3spAEiY (“From Wheels to Heals,”) which is the first one I read, getting ready for our first interview back in 2018! Praise God! Help we welcome back to the program, Barby Ingle! Barby, thank you for taking the time to come back on the program today!  It's been what, three or four years since your last interview? Our podcast listening audience has grown exponentially since the last time you were on. For those that may not know about you or your organization, http://www.internationalpain.org/ (The International Pain Foundation), tell us in your own words, “Who is Barby Ingle?” I want to back track to when you became the “Chief of Staff” of your own medical team. Can you share with us what this phrase means and how someone can implement it? Didn't the doctors tell you something like, “Stop reading all that other stuff and just listen to me?” For privacy reasons, you don't have to go into detail, but how are you doing? Are you still having some issues with your pain and your health? I'm sure your situation was much worse than mine.  But I said all of that, one, just to catch you up. But two, to demonstrate to our listeners that you are not in this alone. Only YOU can decide when “enough is enough.” There is a reason doctors have a “medical practice.” Barby, how should a person react when they get the “look” from a physician, like they really don't believe them concerning the pain they are experiencing? They think we are hypochondriacs or something? Tell us about the http://www.internationalpain.org/ (International Pain Foundation…) Folks, pain is real. Pain is, well, painful.

    The Winning Edge Shawn Harper In life, we often face difficulties and adversities. Often, these things make us better. We learn from our mistakes. For some, they view life as being “out to get them.” The perspective you take concerning adversity will determine if you are a winner or a loser in the game of life. Our guest today knows what it is like to face adversity. He grew up with adversity. He struggled through adversity. But today, Shawn Harper is widely known for his unconventional ways, as his life journey dictates, step by step, how he overcame so much persecution and obstacles, that society said he would never amount to anything. But, against all odds, he proved them all wrong. He from the playing the bench for an entire year in junior college, to playing seven years in the National Football League for the LA Rams, the Houston Oilers and the Indianapolis Colts. Shawn is the author of https://www.shawnharper.org/products/ (“The Winning Edge.”) Shawn is also an investor, CEO and founder of American Services and Protection in Columbus, Ohio, and Bridge Builders International.

Help me welcome to the program, NFL great, Shawn Harper!  Shawn, it is an honor and privilege to have you on the program today! The first question I always start with is this. Can you tell us in your own words, who is “Aaron Shawn Harper? When did you drop the “Aaron” and start going simply by “Shawn?” You teach people about winning. What is the secret to winning that most people never grasp without someone, such as yourself, showing them this secret? My background in the Army, I did 12 years in the Cavalry and was also a drill sergeant, drill instructor. I know that you must train in the same environment and same intensity as you are going to fight. That is what makes us successful. You obviously did these things in football.  When was “that moment” when you realized you could enjoy enduring the pain for the rewards of success in football? The gifts of God are supposed to flow THROUGH us and not just TO US.  How do you help people to understand this concept in your coaching? You said, “Winners do what others won't do and winners do what others are not willing to do.” How has this type of attitude helped you in setting up your coaching business and how has this helped you to motivate your students to achieve success? In your NFL career, when did you come to decision to prepare a business for AFTER the NFL? When you decided to pursue the next level, did you hire a coach that could guide you towards your goals? Be it to the NFL and especially your business life after the NFL? How do you utilize, what you call, “leverage?”  Explain what that term means and how you help others to “leverage” their way to success… You also discuss the habits elite level athletes use to win in business and life. Can you share a bit about those habits? Tell us about your book, https://www.shawnharper.org/products/ (“The Winning Edge.)” How can someone get a copy of your book, “The Winning Edge?” Shawn, I do appreciate your time to visit with us today.

Among his many clients, Dr. Capparucci has worked with professional athletes including NFL and MLB players and television personalities. He serves as the clinical director for the National Decency Coalition, an organization working with state governments to help limit the access of pornography to minors. His ministry is “Abundant Life Counseling” located in Highlands, NC. He is the author of several books, including https://amzn.to/3MyALRd (“Going Deeper: How the Inner Child Impacts Your Sexual Addiction;”)https://amzn.to/3MtCB5Q (“Removing Your Shame Label: Learning to Break Free of Shame and Feel God's Love”) and his most recent book, https://amzn.to/3EN9APF (“Why Men Struggle to Love: Overcoming Relational Blind Spots.”) You've identified 9 inner child symptoms and core emotional triggers. Can you share some of them with us? Explain the term “Emotional Intimacy” and how that relates to sexual addictions or porn addictions… But if someone is in a committed relationship, marriage, etc., aren't they emotionally bonded, to use your term from the book, to their partner? Your most recent book, https://amzn.to/3EN9APF (“Why Men Struggle to Love: Overcoming Relational Blind Spots,”) why do you believe this book is so needful at this point in our culture today? The title of your book is, https://amzn.to/3EN9APF (“Why Men Struggle to Love,”) so, I guess the question I need to ask is, “Why do men struggle to love?” Is it true that some of this relates back to things that happened in their childhood? Or is that just a popular fallacy? In your book, https://amzn.to/3EN9APF (“Why Men Struggle to Love,”) you state your mission is not to “rid men of their destructive behaviors, but instead, to transform their hearts.”  Can you explain how that will help them gain victory over their sexual addictions? With the current internet generation, porn is so accessible as compared to when I was growing up. You used to have to the “five and dime” store and then stand in the aisle and try and look at the girlie magazines without drawing attention.  It's not like that today. Just about anyone and any age can access things that, just can't be described, it's so bad…  How can we avoid all that we are faced with? Can you briefly go over some of the 14 “Blind Spots” men need to overcome in order to emotionally connect to their spouse, significant other, etc., as outlined in your book? What could the consequences be if men fail to connect or emotionally bond with others? Now, this next question can be twisted to mean different things and that is not my intention. But there are many women who dress, let's just say, seductively, on purpose. I know we are focusing here on men struggling with sexual addictions, but what are your thoughts on someone of the opposite sex that strive to plant those thoughts in the minds of men? Do they have some underlying problems similar to the ones you are sharing about men and their sexual addictions? Dr. Capparucci, this is all so interesting – and so needful – in the culture we are living in today. How can someone order a copy of your book, https://amzn.to/3EN9APF (“Why Men Struggle to Love: Overcoming Relational Blind Spots?)” Is it available on Amazon?

    What the Bible Has to Say About the USA David Heeren https://amzn.to/3ykYjoL ()There can be no doubt, if you are a believer, if you have studied the Bible or have been reading the Bible for any length of time, that we are living in what the Bible refers to as “the last days.” But, what does that truly mean? Are we headed for a crisis worse than COVID? What can Christians do to prevent a total collapse? In seeking answers to these and other important questions, Bible scholar David Heeren turned to the Old Testament book of Hosea, which describes ancient Israel as a land bearing many resemblances to America today. David Heeren has been on our program a couple of times discussing end time topics over the last couple of years. His books layout clear road signs for believers to survive and thrive in these last days. David has spent the better part of the last 17-18 years studying the Bible and other references. His most recent book is https://amzn.to/3ykYjoL (“What the Bible Has to Say About the USA: The Old Testament Speaks to Americans Today”) where David takes us on a fascinating exploration into the Book of Hosea and draws striking parallels between ancient Israel and modern day America. David, it is so good to have you back on the program again! I appreciate you joining us today! For the benefit of those who may be new to the program and have not heard our prior conversations, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is David Heeren?” Why did you write this book https://amzn.to/3ykYjoL (“What the Bible Has to Say About the USA: The Old Testament Speaks to Americans Today?”)  And why the book of Hosea? Which of these issues seem to be the most prevalent right now? Are these things successive in nature? I mean, is it possible to break the pattern of succession? What would need to be accomplished to restore Biblical morality and God-ordained Constitutional liberty in the United States – and avoid these things discussed in the Book of Hosea? In your book, you mention one positive theme in Hosea. What is that and how does it relate to the Book Song of Songs? And https://amzn.to/3ykYjoL (your book), how can they receive a copy? Is it on Amazon? David this has been truly interesting. I have been, and I know many others have been as well, proclaiming the soon return of Jesus is near.  Truly near… If someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or maybe do an interview like this, how can they do that?

    How to Mobilize and Empower Others Andrena Sawyer pt 2 Andrena Sawyer is an author, business strategist, and diversity advocate whose background includes surviving the civil war in Sierra Leone. Her authenticity and battle-tested principles inspire audiences to embrace their past, own their present and maximize their future. Originally from Freetown, Sierra Leone, she and her family moved to the United States when she was nine years old due to a civil war that left thousands dead and untold numbers maimed and displaced. She now credits her family's move during the war for her interest in human triumph and perseverance. She has since actively worked to mobilize and empower others. At age 15, she founded Triple “T” MAD (Teens Trying to Make a Difference), a community service organization for teens in central New Jersey. As a student at Howard University, she continued to cultivate her interest in community development by founding Rock, the MIC—an annual outreach for youth in the DC area. These experiences laid a firm foundation that continues to define her work. She is the President of https://www.andrenasawyer.com/about-3-1 (P.E.R.K. Consulting), an advisory firm for small to mid-sized nonprofits and businesses, and the Founder of https://www.andrenasawyer.com/about-3 (MCWEN)—a faith-based network for women of color entrepreneurs. Through her work, she has helped hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals move from ideas to purpose-driven work. She is also the author of several book, including https://amzn.to/3OxGrN8 (“The Misadventures of a New Entrepreneur: 5 Things They Won't Teach You in Business School.”) Tell us about MCWEN? How are “Faith and Purpose” connected? You mentioned P.E.R.K.  What is that and how does it help other entrepreneurs? I'm intrigued by your book title, https://amzn.to/3OxGrN8 (“The Misadventures Of A New Entrepreneur: 5 Things They Won't Teach You in Business School.”)   Can you share a bit about your book with us? Your book, is at available on Amazon? Andrena, this has been so interesting. If someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or possibly do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? Folks, I can't emphasize enough how important it is for you to “be your own boss.”  Even if you are working for another company, or even if you are a Federal employee and think you have a guaranteed job. All it takes is for someone higher up to say, “We are reshaping the company,” or “Your job has been eliminated.” Then, you're job is gone. I know, I've had that happen to me. It's not a good position to be in. But, with Andrena's help, you could start your side job and have that soon become you main job. Then, you are the one who's in charge. If you start now, you could be in a position where you may just decide to quit or retire early from your “regular job.” How awesome would that be?

    The Birth Pangs Intensify Tom Donnan pt 1 I have guests come on this program all of the time. I do between 3 and 5 and sometimes 6 interviews each week. I've noticed recently that many guests are discussing the end time, the Book of Revelation and / or things happening in this world. There is a Spiritual awakening happening in the Body of Christ right now – that the Day of the Lord is at hand. For some, they deny such things. They blame it all on “Climate Change.” Or, Russia and China. Some blame still blame Donald Trump. But for believers, true believers, they don't blame anyone but the devil. Praise God. I'm telling people, almost on a daily basis, that NONE of these things worry me. Not one. Not inflation. Not COVID. Not wars. Not crime in the streets. Why? Because I see prophecy coming to pass right before my eyes. And I know how it all turns out. Yes, I'm not going to lie. It does “concern” me. But my hope rests, completely, in Jesus. Amen Our good friend, Tom Donnan, is back today to discuss more things that deal with all of these same issues. The Lord shares these things with Tom through dreams and visions and he is back today to share some recent things the Lord has shown to him. And how they are coming to pass, not at some point in the future – but right now, every single night – on television. Praise God. That is some pretty intense things that are happening or soon to happen. Again, just like Jesus said they would be happening immediately prior to His return. We hardly ever have a session like this when we do not talk about earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and things like that. Have you recently seen what was happening in the Azores Islands? 27000 quakes in a day in the Azores Island chain as they get ready for an eruption. https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=mN2_kYDPMvo (Azores volcanic island prepares for disaster after thousands of small earthquakes - YouTube) END PART ONE I recently seen news reports about new lockdowns in China. In fact, it's been widely reported that China is telling their citizens “shut up and stop complaining” or face arrests.  That sounds like a wonderful place to live, doesn't it? Food Riots around the world. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOTh6jiRNxU (Riots break out in China as starving residents revolt against ‘Zero COVID' lockdown - YouTube) Record breaking start to the Tornado season.  It seems each year, there are more and more tornadoes than the previous year. As I referenced in the opening, it's being blamed on “Climate Change” rather than prophecy. Have you seen anything that relates to the increased intensity of weather phenomenon? https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=ATkmJxqG9Ss (Record setting number of U.S. tornadoes in March 2022 - YouTube) Tornados, for the most part, are isolated points of destruction. Hitting one spot; then jumping to another. I came across a video stating the USA is having a record number of tornado's this season, 218 so far as of this first week in April. Combined this to the earthquake dream shows an increased destruction to people's lives. 4-9-22. Tornado's Dream I keep having dreams with tornados in them. This morning I had one. It started, I was headed east on 95th near Kedzie. I first saw small debris in the sky swirling around. Then I saw the mild tornado still in the atmosphere. It had clipped a tall structure. I watched as the tornado roped out and drifted down to 99th street. I drove into a parking structure on 95th for protection and to see it. Again I saw it, however it was right above me, very close, spinning slowly. I looked up as in a daze. Next, I look into becoming a volunteer at Christ Hospital. I mingled with the workers, talk and ask questions. Several seem interested in me. I talk with the staff, interact with them, because I worked there for 25 years they were open to me. I was on a tour in the hospital, they brought us into a storeroom/...

Tom, thanks for taking the time to come back on and visit. I do appreciate it! Over the last two years we have talked about our need to be on the strong foundation of Jesus Christ (Matthew 7:24-27). The question now is, is there time left to build that type of strong foundation in our relationship with Jesus? You recently had a warning dream of earthquakes, shaking and chaos. Can you share somethings with us from that dream? There are a few main points to the first dream: A strong shaking is coming. Some households will be swallowed up in the shaking. As with earthquakes, there are many shockwaves. Those having a strong foundation on Jesus do well Second dream points Cell phones/communications are down. There is a need for warm clothing Emerging from the safety of our foundation is a flood of confused people. I heard a voice say to me, “Time to separate yourself!” Tom, if someone wants to get in touch with you, order your books, etc., how can they do that? I'll put links to all of this down in the show notes below. Folks, there is no doubt we are living on the edge of Eternity right now. What you do, what you do not do, will have eternal consequences.

At age 16, he decided enough was enough, he believed he was saved and figured he could go it alone now. Well, needless to say, his life was not one of sunshine and roses… But that is all behind him now and he is serving the Lord by sharing the "Good News" of the Gospel far and wide... Joel Williams is the founder of https://www.lastchristian.net/podcast (“The Last Christian Podcast”) – the Bible versus the world in Prophesy. He is also preparing to have his own radio program on Evangelism Radio at http://www.evangelismradio.com/ (evangelismradio.com) as well. Today is part two of a great two part interview! Joel Williams and Pastor Bob discuss the ultimate question: “If you died tonight, would you go to Heaven”… Something happened that led you to “try church” again.  Can you share what happened and how it affected your outlook on life – and death? When you were born again, from what I've read, you jumped right into serving the Lord through the church you were attending. Tell us about that time in your life… You were remarried then? The Lord has blessed you with being able to start reconnecting with your children. But the Lord has also blessed you with being able to raise two grandchildren now. What are your thoughts on having this “second chance” at child raising? In what you shared with me in preparation for today's interview, you said, “The problem was too easy to see. YOU were deciding your path and not asking the Lord of direction.” That is the exact same thing I discovered through my life, up until I was facing medical retirement from law enforcement. Just like you, I sought the Lord's input and He gave me the “OK” to let that career go and just follow His lead. Now, for me, it was “Begin your own, weekly, 30 minute online radio program.” Today, they call that a podcast, but I had no idea what it was. I was not technically inclined – in fact, I had to have help checking email. That is the God's honest truth!  But, looking back over the last 11 years, I can see how the Lord has moved me, one step at a time, into where we are at right now with our ministry and are able to bless others and help them to “Get the Word Out” through online media sources. Tell us about your walk down this path and how you were led to start your own podcast and what doors have been open for you? Joel, there can be no doubt for anyone who has half a brain, in my opinion, that we living in the last minutes of the last days as depicted in the Bible. World events are beginning to line EXACTLY like the Bible says they will be just before the Rapture takes place. What are your thoughts on this day and time in which we live? How does your podcast, https://www.lastchristian.net/podcast (“The Last Christian”) help in sharing this “Good News” (Good News for believers – not so good for non-believers)? Let me ask you this… I see Ezekiel 38 beginning to come to pass right now. What do you believe will occur first, the destruction of Damascus or the Rapture?  And why? In addition to https://www.lastchristian.net/podcast (your podcast), we are going to be helping you reach the world with the Gospel through your own LIVE radio program on http://www.evangelismradio.com/ (Evangelism Radio.) We will be starting that program very, very soon – at the time of this recording. In fact, folks, you may be able to catch Joel Williams on the radio at the time this interview is published – Praise God! Joel, if I'm not mistaken, your program will be aired LIVE every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 830pm to 9pm ET, correct? What about your podcast? How can someone listen to that program? If someone wanted to get in touch with you, to ask a question, etc., how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with...

    The Last Christian Joel Williams pt 1 https://www.lastchristian.net/ ()There are times in our life when things do not go as planned. I know – I've experienced several over my life. My first love was the military…then it was gone. And I blamed God for allowing it to happen. I had my plans all laid out – but unexpected turns (and my attitude, I now can admit that), destroyed those plans. Then it was business – then it was gone. The difference this time, I was born again. So I did not blame God. I blamed others. Then it was law enforcement… then it was gone. But the difference this time – I was born again, called and ordained into ministry (I was even a chaplain for our department's FOP for several years). And as I was seeing the “handwriting on the wall,” I prayed. I sought the Lord and in the process, received the “peace that passes all understanding.” So when the transition came, this time, I was ready to step into my calling. Well, my guest today has gone through similar experiences… Joel Williams was raised in a Christian home and attended church faithfully, as his parents were active participants in the church (same for me). At age 16, he decided enough was enough, he believed he was saved and figured he could go it alone now (same for me, at age 16 as well). Well, needless to say, his life was not one of sunshine and roses… But, I'll let him share about all of that and how HE ended up here, with us today! Amen! Joel Williams is the founder of https://www.lastchristian.net/podcast (“The Last Christian Podcast”) – the Bible versus the world in Prophesy. He is also preparing to have his own radio program on Evangelism Radio at http://www.evangelismradio.com/ (evangelismradio.com) as well. Help me welcome to the program, Joel Williams! Other than that brief information I just shared, can you share with us in your own words, “Who is Joel Williams?” Now, your parents raised you, basically, in the church – as my grandparents did (I was raised by my grandparents). At the same age, I may have actually been 15, you decided you'd had enough of church.  Tell us why and what did you do then? I understand you worked for American Airlines for a long time… tell us about your life during that period of your life? Were you chasing money to prove your success or seeking success to pursue money? What was your family life like at that time? You left the airlines, what did you do then? Something happened that led you to “try church” again.  Can you share what happened and how it affected your outlook on life – and death? When you were born again, from what I've read, you jumped right into serving the Lord through the church you were attending.

    Faith in the Kingdom of Heaven Apostle Ken Giles pt 1 https://lbchouston.org/online-giving/ ()There is a definite demonstration in society today, of a lack of Faith in God. Lack of Faith in His Word. Lack of Faith in the ability of Jesus and all that He has accomplished for us. When I was growing up, 70% of America went to church every Sunday. Businesses were closed so employees could go to church. Today, we are continuing our interview with Apostle Ken Giles of the Lincoln Bible Church in Hempstead, Texas is joining us on the program today. He and his wife, Pastor Sheila Giles, have released a great book that is very, very relevant for today and especially for those who ask that question, “Where is God and how come I'm not blessed?”  The book is titled, https://amzn.to/3JPC3VU (“Faith in the Kingdom of Heaven: You Can't Have One Without the Other.”) Apostle Ken, you share a “lucky rabbit's foot analogy” in your book as you discuss “Faith in God.” Can you share your thoughts on this? You also discuss how, when we order something online, we receive a “confirmation receipt.” You discuss this in light of Hebrews 11:1. Can you share that with us as well? You share, in section three, how people believe the “Big Bang Theory.” Talk a bit about that from your perspective… I loved the story that relates to God's Blessings in our lives. It all depends on “relationship” with the Father. The story you told was about a boy needing a ticket to get into a theme park and get on the rides. Can you share that with us? Apostle Ken, we are about out of time. This book, https://amzn.to/3JPC3VU (“Faith in the Kingdom of God”) is a magnificent book. How can someone receive a copy of it? Is it on Amazon?

    They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll Pastor Joe Shimmel pt 3 https://www.goodfight.org/ ()Pastor Joe Shimmel is the senior pastor of Blessed Hope Chapel in Simi Valley, California. His background is one that many teenagers in the 1970's followed, myself included, as we seemed to fall into the “sex, drugs and rock and roll” mentality. It was about as far as we could get from serving the Lord at that time, my life included. We have been discussing his video, https://amzn.to/3E2atDB ("They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll,") that turned Hollywood and the music industry upside down as he exposed the satanic ties that almost every major star has demonstrated or confessed to (during interviews or performances). Today, we will be focusing on where we left off yesterday, with a NEW video that Pastor Joe has released, http://www.marveldcexposed.com/ ("Marvel and DC's War on God: The Anti-Christ Agenda.")  This video provides the evidence of writers and publishers of "action hero" comic books are also delving into satanic issues in an effort to lead our youth astray. This is part three of a great three part interview with Pastor Joe Shimmel... I can see some of the Marvel characters that are being touted as heroes but actually are introducing demonic powers to the readers… has this always been the case with these comic book heroes? You go into detail about some of the famous people in the entertainment industry. Did you ever receive any feedback from some of the people you discussed in the video? This film is released now, correct? The information you shared in the video was all publicly available information for anyone that wanted to research it, correct? Tell us about https://www.goodfightradioshow.org/ (“Fight the Good Fight Ministries”) and your https://www.goodfightradioshow.org/ (podcast…) Pastor Joe, this is all so fascinating.  I've learned a lot from your videos and especially now that I can tie it together with what you shared today… Pastor, again, this is all so fascinating. If someone wanted to get more information on what we've talked about today or about your ministry, how can they do that? Your video, https://amzn.to/3E2atDB (“They Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll”) is available on YouTube, right? How can they watch the http://www.marveldcexposed.com/ (Marvel film?) 'll put links do all of this down in the show notes below. Folks, as I stated in the beginning, this is not new. It's been going on since the Garden of Eden if you want to get technical about it. The devil does not have anything new up his sleeve. He's the same yesterday, today and forever. His tactics are as well. But our God is also the same yesterday, today and forevermore. And Jesus has defeated the devil and all that are with him. Pastor Joe Shimmel has been shining the True Light into the darkness of the entertainment industry for decades. I encourage you to go down into the show notes and click the links there. I especially encourage you to watch the video, https://amzn.to/3E2atDB (“The Sold Their Souls for Rock and Roll.”) I watched a few years ago and it changed how I viewed things that I thought were normal, everyday things.

Many will roam to and fro and knowledge will increase.” Today is part two of a great two part interview with our good friend and frequent guest, Dr. Richard Ruhling.

And it really fascinated me that she seen 911 happen almost 100 years before it actually took place. Can you speak to some of the visions and predictions she made concerning the days in which we now live? I have to admit, I've talked to many prophets and other ministry professionals in these last three or four years, and almost to a “T”, they ALL believe that “life as we now it” will not be hear much longer. You also list a “confirming sign” for 2023 and how the liberal left has obscured it.  Can you give us a brief description and meaning to that sign?

I learn a lot from every interview we do and I believe our listeners do as well.

Amen? Tell us about the “mega-quakes” you are predicting between now and 2023… We are told, over and over again in the Bible, that certain events, or “signs” will happen just before Jesus returns. Can you give us a few glimpses into how you book ties these events to current events and what the Bible has to say about them?  Like Noah, etc… Are there truly parallels between the Unites States and Egypt in the Bible?             Joseph's warning of seven good years and 7 bad years…             How the wedding parables relate to all of this information, but doing so in ways that people think…             Pastors shown as failing Christ's 9-11 warning… You discuss how we are being “prepared” for the end times through movies and things like that, depicting fiction, but actually desensitizing us to the ramifications of what is about to unfold, right before our eyes.

    The Soldier Code Duncan Brannan pt 2 I've been blessed with being able to interview many influential people on this podcast. I've interviewed several people over the years that you may have seen on TV or heard on radio or seen speak at conferences, etc. My guest today is just such a person. He is well known, especially for those born in the late 1990's and it is my privilege to introduce to you, “Barney the Dinosaur!” My guest today has been the voice of Barney and many others. He even had multiple voice overs in the smash hit, “DragonBall Z!”  He has also been the voice over artist for celebrities such as Martha Stewart, Chuck Swindoll and others. But, most importantly, he has spent the last 30 years in various aspects of ministry, serving the Most High God and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Duncan Brannan is also the author of a magnificent book, https://amzn.to/3hE4BGA (“The Soldier Code: Ancient Warrior Wisdom For Modern Day Christian Soldiers.”)  This book, which, like I started with, relates the Spiritual similarities of war with the natural. Understanding this relationship will make you a far better soldier in the “Army of the Lord.” Back in the 1980's, I was a Cavalry officer and we were required, by our Squadron Commander as part of our officer development program, to read at least one book per month on tactics, history or leadership.  I was an avid reader. I read Tsung Su's book, “The Art of War,” as you have.  But, I have to admit, what you have put together in this book is awesome. You were able to bridge that gap between natural warfare and Spiritual warfare like I have not seen before.  Tell us what makes this book unique from all of the other books that are circulating in Christian circles that discuss Spiritual warfare… You shared with us the six cultures are that you've included in your book. What did you find as the common denominators in all of these warrior cultures? Also, on the jacket of your book, another area says your readers will learn, “Powerful strategies to defeat enemies within and without.”  What do you mean by that and how is this accomplished? Your book is released the third week of March, how can someone obtain a copy? Is it available on Amazon? If someone wanted to get in touch with you, maybe to get more information, ask a question or possibly to do an interview such as this. How can they do that? How can they get in touch with you? I'll put links to this down in the show notes. Folks, this is a definite book to add to your reading list. I can't recommend this any more highly than to say, you need to buy two or three copies. Sow them. Buy one for your pastor, too. I know your pastor will be blessed by it. Pastor Barney, I mean Pastor Duncan, thank you for joining us today. I enjoyed our conversation to much. I do appreciate your time… CONTACT INFORMATION: https://amzn.to/3hE4BGA ()   Website:  https://thesoldiercode.com/ (https://thesoldiercode.com) Book:  https://amzn.to/3hE4BGA (“The Soldier Code: Ancient Warrior Wisdom for Modern-Day Christian Soldiers”) – on Amazon

    The Soldier Code Duncan Brannan pt 1 I've been blessed with being able to interview many influential people on this podcast. I've interviewed several people over the years that you may have seen on TV or heard on radio or seen speak at conferences, etc. It is not often that I am able to interview someone who, not only loves the Lord, but shares my passion of relating things to military service. After all, we are in the “Army of the Lord” and my training in tactics and military strategies are things I relate to all of the time. Often to the chagrin of my family as somebody will mention something and I'll respond with, “That's a Cavalry tactic to do “such and such.” Anyway, my guest today is just such a person. He is well known, especially for those born in the late 1990's and it is my privilege to introduce to you, “Barney the Dinosaur!” Ok, Ok, even the Apostle Paul said “Bear with me in my folly…” My guest today has been the voice of Barney, though. Among many others, Chuck-E-Cheese as well as Barney. He even had multiple voice overs in the smash hit, “DragonBall Z!”  He has also been the voice over artist for celebrities such as Martha Stewart, Chuck Swindoll and others. But, most importantly, he has spent the last 30 years in various aspects of ministry, serving the Most High God and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Understanding this relationship will make you a far better soldier in the “Army of the Lord.” First question I always start with is this. Other than that brief introduction I just gave, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Duncan Brannon?” I have to ask… If I have performed my calculations correctly, were you in the ministry while performing as “Barney” and “Chuck E. Cheese?” So “Barney” was a Christian!  Praise God! What initially got you interested in voice overs or voice acting? But how did this background prepare you for ministry and what you are doing now? But, let's talk about your book, “The Soldier Code: Ancient Warrior Wisdom For Modern Day Christian Soldiers.”    I read how you first started down this path. I find interesting to hear the background and how just one nudge from the Lord to do something can have huge Spiritual benefits later. Share with our listeners how this book project first had it's beginnings… Folks, this is a definite book to add to your reading list. I can't recommend this any more highly than to say, you need to buy two or three copies. Sow them. Buy one for your pastor, too. I know your pastor will be blessed by it.

    The Sovereign Mindset – Don Abad

    Sovereign Mindset Don Abad Many Christian people are business owners. Many business owners are Christians. We live in this world, not separate from this world. We are here to share the Gospel and we don't have to hit people over the head to do so. Often, it is how we live our life and how we conduct our business. Our guest today has successfully bridged that gap and has grown a successful business while sharing his faith. Don Abad is a creative consultant, speaker and the founder of “Sovereign Stories,” which offers post-production solutions for values-focused filmmakers and content creators. Don is a second generation network marketer, who, alongside his wife Kimmi, built his family's freedom through their homebased business.  Don coaches teams of fellow entrepreneurs through his unique, “Your Sovereign Downline Training Program.” Don and his wife, Kimmi, also host of “Your Sovereign Downline Podcast,” where they share lessons learned from over ten years in the network marketing industry and discuss “best tip strategies” for building a home-based business. Don's other podcast is “Sovereign” and is dedicated to sharing “Faith, Family and Freedom” and emphasizes the need to have more storytellers to promote these values in a person's life.  Don and his wife strive to help married entrepreneurs and other high-achievers discover or rediscover their purpose and to leave a legacy to their family and their community. First question… other than that brief information I shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Don Abad?” From what I've read and listened to, while preparing for today's interview, I know Faith is a very integral part of your life and business. Can you explain how you successfully run your business while also successfully balance “Faith and Family” at the same time? Why did you decide to name your brand “Sovereign?” Many people look at network marketing, and I'll just add, through affiliate marketing into this question as well, as a tabu where it comes to a career choice. But, if they actually stop to think about it, every time they go to the grocery store, retail outlet, or put gas in their car – involves some type of network marketing and affiliate marketing. What are your thoughts on that? How to you share your marketing knowledge with pastors, churches, etc. in an effort to help them increase their cash flow? Either personally or corporately? How long have you been doing your podcast, “Your Sovereign Downline?” You are into filmmaking and things like that… Share with us how important video can be in sharing our story – whatever that story may be? Jesus was the Master Storyteller! Back on “Faith, Family and Freedom,” your focus really is on storytelling in each one of those pillars. We talked briefly on “Faith and Family.” But what do you mean by “Freedom” in the context of your brand? You offer coaching and consulting services in your business. Who is the type of person your business is set up to help? Give us your opinion of who would benefit the most from working with you and what would they gain from doing so? Don, this has all been so interesting. I have learned some things today and I know our listeners have as well. Folks, we are marketing ourselves all of the time. Every single person listening to us right now. From the people you meet to the people you work with; from talking with your neighbor or talking with your boss, we usually are trying to leave a good impression, perhaps negotiate a better deal, pay raise, sales, whatever. In order to do that, as Don Abad has shared today, we need to keep the focus on “Faith” then “Family” then “Freedom.” Faith keeps us grounded in that we should always put representing the Lord and His values above all else. This just results in greater blessings all the way around… Just asking yourself, “What would Jesus do” in this situation? How will this honor Him? Family – keeping our family at the forefront

    Your Marriage God's Way Scott LaPierre pt 3 Scott LaPierre is the senior pastor of Woodland Christian Church in Woodland, Washington. In addition to his role as a pastor, he is also married and has NINE children!  God Bless you!  He is an author of multiple books with more to come and is also the host of “Living God's Way” podcast. His latest book is https://amzn.to/34pb4SB (“Your Marriage God's Way: A Biblical Guide to a Christ-Centered Relationship,”) available through Harvest House Publishers… Today is the conclusion of what turned out to be a great, three part interview! Something that you always hear, mainly young people today, but it could be anyone, is “I'm in love…” You dedicate an entire chapter in your book to “What is Love?”  Share a bit about that with us… We are here, talking with Pastor Scott LaPierre, author of the great book, https://amzn.to/34pb4SB (“Your Marriage God's Way: A Biblical Guide to a Christ-Centered Relationship.”) In your book, you also address the, let's say, controversial topic (at least until you explain it), and actually, there are two of them… So I'll just ripple off two rounds back up to provide covering fire for you as you explain “A woman's greater beauty” and then, right after that, “The Bibles' “perfect” Wife.” How can a marriage that, let's just say, has a shaky foundation because of a weak or even almost non-existent relationship with Christ… how can a couple strengthen that foundation when the marriage may have actually started separate from Christ? What, and I know what the “Biblical” answer is, but in your book, how do you approach the subject where one or the other spouse may not have the same level of Faith in Christ the firmly believing spouse may have. How does that impact the marriage and how can the faith filled spouse try to carry the load and help the other to come around to that position of faith? Well, Pastor Scott, this has been a fascinating talk. I just love this book and I'd love to have you come back on again in the future and share about other books you've written. If someone wanted to obtain a copy of your book, https://amzn.to/34pb4SB (“Your Marriage God's Way: A Biblical Guide to a Christ Centered Marriage,”) how can they do that? Is it on Amazon? You also have a work book that goes right along with this book, correct? So they can obtain both at the same time when they order on Amazon or from whatever book retailer they usually use? Folks, Pastor Scott LaPierre has poured his heart and the Love of Christ into this book in order to bless YOU – in YOUR marriage. What he has written is nothing new. It's been discussed in the Bible for thousands of years. But his insight, his studies, his time in the Word, has provided a unique, compelling and a very clear understanding of Biblical marriage that most people have not been told about. I highly encourage you to obtain this book, https://amzn.to/34pb4SB (“Your Marriage God's Way: A Biblical Guide to a Christ Centered Marriage,”)and the workbook that goes with it!  Even if you've been married for years or if you are just contemplating marriage. This book and work book will make your marriage better. It will make it safer and more secure from the wiles of the devil and you and your family will be blessed. Just drop down into the show notes and order your copies today. If you are doing marriage counseling, I would highly, highly recommend this book and workbook to be part of the pre-marriage counseling or even the marriage counseling in trying to repair a broken marriage. That is how powerful this book is. Amen!
