The Business Power Hour with Deb Krier

Alison J. Kay, PhD is a multiple time #1 International Best-Selling Author, including her latest book, The Dragon Master Creatrix: Conversations With a Female Spiritual Teacher For these New Times. She is an award winning Master Mind-Body Energy Medicine Facilitator and teacher for more than twenty-five years, and a world-traveler who lived and worked at an International School in Asia for ten years, while also performing energy medicine and holistic wellness coaching sessions for clients on the side there and worldwide, as she continued to study at the source the subtle energy system and consciousness. During her experience in Asia, Dr. Kay completed her PhD as a Holistic Life Coach. She continued fiercely studying Buddhism and Buddhist meditation, while also learning and eventually teaching Chi Gong, and receiving traditional Chinese and other Asian holistic treatments many times per week. Prior to returning home, Dr. Kay went to India and became a Yoga Alliance certified Yoga and Meditation Teacher. All this took place while she was both an administrator and classroom teacher, teaching English Literature, AP Psychology and a course she created, “Global Psychology,” that combines both Eastern and Western psychological methodologies. The Vibrational UPgrade™ System was created by Dr. Kay after spending these years in Asia studying subtle energy. Her system presents the intersection of the mind, body, and spirit applied to cultivating vitality, health, longevity, and over all well-being that leads to reaching one's fullest potential. During her speaker engagements she consistently awes her audiences with the completeness and accuracy from which they awaken and recognize their own physical, emotional, mental, and life challenges having a direct, clear correlation to a specific chakra or two.

Dear Daughters
Keeping Christmas | Henry Van Dyke | DD 194

Dear Daughters

It is a good thing to observe Christmas, but it is even better to keep Christmas … – Henry Van Dyke It's Christmas time. Lights, shopping, trees filled with tiny twinkling treasures. I hope you and yours are enjoying the season. To celebrate, I wanted to jump in with one of my favorite stories by one of my favorite authors. Henry Jackson Van Dyke Jr. was an American author, educator, diplomat, and clergyman. He was born on November 10, 1852, in Germantown, Pennsylvania to a strict Presbyterian family of Dutch origin. He graduated from Princeton University and went on to become a professor of English Literature for over twenty years. He entered Princeton Theological Seminary in September 1874 (with no actual desire to become a minister); however, in 1875 at Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, he gave his first sermon on “The Voice of God.” Interestingly enough, he penned the lyrics to Beethoven's famous “Ode to Joy” melody and it became the beloved hymn, “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee.”  Van Dyke also wrote a short sermon entitled, “The Spirit of Christmas” which is beautiful, timely and I'm sharing it here with you today. It inspired Peter Marshall who wrote Let's Keep Christmas. This charming book is one that I am constantly on hunt for at estate sales. And I just happen to have a few copies in my shop. Take a look here. SHOW NOTES To check out the Christmas books I referenced, take a peek at ‘Christmas Reading‘ in my Amazon Shop.

Atheism in Five Minutes, by Professor Teemu Taira, is part of Equinox Publishing's “Religion in 5 Minutes” series. It offers insights into a number of commonly held questions about the ideas, practices, and attitudes concerning atheism and atheists. The volume highlights approaches based on the study of religion, sociology, history, anthropology, politics, and psychology. It also examines the implications and assumptions in common questions about atheism. Ideal for both classroom use and personal study, some of the questions asked include: Are atheists immoral? Are children born atheist? Do atheists have rituals? How has atheism related to politics? Why do some atheists remain members of religious groups? Is it difficult to be an atheist in Muslim countries? Do atheist parents have atheist children? Why are there so few black atheists? What are the most atheistic societies? And, has the Internet made atheism more popular? Each chapter is based on the latest research written by a leading scholar in the field. They offer concise and thoughtful answers along with suggestions for further reading. Because each chapter can be read in about five minutes, the books of this series offer ideal supplementary resources in classrooms or an engaging read for those curious about the world around them. Teemu Taira is senior lecturer in the study of religion, University of Helsinki, and Docent (Adjunct Professor) at the Department of Study of Religion, University of Turku, Finland. He researches religion in the media; atheism, secularism and nonreligion; and the discursive study of “religion” as a category. This year he has also published Taking ‘Religion' Seriously: Essays on the Discursive Study of Religion with Brill, which he has also discussed on the New Books Network recently.

My guest today is Professor Anne Sheridan, and she's going to help take the intimidation factor out of reading classic literature. Anne is an educator, a pastor's wife, and a mother of three girls living in Davenport, Iowa. She has undergraduate degrees in Piano Performance and English, a graduate certificate in Biblical Studies, and an MA in English. Anne has several years of experience teaching at the college level, with courses on Speech, English Composition, English Literature, and Christian Fantasy Literature. She enjoys reading in community and helping students to discover and appreciate the joys of reading. Anne and I talk about what makes a classic a “classic,” why you shouldn't feel intimidated by literature, how to distinguish between different genres, why Shakespeare was so great, how to make time to read, and of course… Star Wars, a topic that seems to make an appearance on my podcast every few interviews or so.

“All men must die”: or “Valar Morghulis,” as the traditional Essos greeting is rendered in High Valyrian. And die they do – in prodigious numbers; in imaginatively varied and gruesome ways; and often in terror within the viciously unpredictable world that is HBO's sensational evocation of Game of Thrones. As acclaimed medievalist Professor Carolyne Larrington writes in All Men Must Die: Power and Passion in Game of Thrones (Bloomsbury, 2021), the stories George R.R. Martin brings to life are epic in scope and in imaginative breadth, telling of the dramatic rise and fall of nations, the brutal sweeping away of old orders, and the advent of new autarchs in the eternal quest for dominion. Yet, as her book reveals, many potent and intimate narratives of love and passion can be found within these grand landscapes of heroism, honour, and death. They focus on strong relationships between women and family, as well as among the anti-heroes, the “cripples, bastards and broken things.” In this vital follow-up to her book, Winter Is Coming (also published by Bloomsbury), Larrington explores themes of power, blood-kin, lust, and sex in order to draw entirely fresh meanings out of the show of the century. Carolyne Larringon is Professor of Medieval Literature at University of Oxford, UK. She completed her DPhil in Old English and Old Norse at Oxford and now teaches Old and Middle English literature as well as English and Old Norse-Icelandic languages. Previous publications include books on Norse mythology and literature and another book on the series called Winter Is Coming: The Medieval World of Game of Thrones. Also, Professor Larrington has been awarded the Order of the Falcon by the President of Iceland for her services to Icelandic literature.

Key Takeaways   The heart follows the habit. Nothing, in the household, is normal, until it is. Put conversation in simple places, like car rides, so we don't become people of absence. Pause prayers before moments of discipline.   dadAWESOME   We're on a mission to add LIFE to the dad life. We're passionate about helping dads live fully alive as they lead their kids to God's awesomeness.  | YouTube |  Instagram | Facebook   Justin Earley   Justin Whitmel Earley is a lawyer, author and speaker from Richmond, VA. He is married to Lauren and has four sons – Whit, Asher, Coulter and Shep. He graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in English Literature before spending four years in Shanghai, China, as a missionary. Justin got his law degree from the Georgetown University Law Center and he now runs his own business law practice in Richmond, Virginia at Earley Legal Group. His book, The Common Rule – Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction, was published with InterVarsity Press in 2019. He frequently speaks at businesses and legal events on habits, technology and mental health; and at churches and conferences on habits, spiritual formation and parenting.  His second book, Habits of the Household – Practicing the Story of God in Everyday Family Rhythms, released with Zondervan in November of 2021. Justin also writes fiction and poetry, and is working on a children's book.    Key Quotes (Full Transcript of the Conversation Here)   22:53 - "The idea of a pause prayers, before approaching a moment of discipline, have a short emphasis on short moment of prayer in your head, just to say, Lord, help me discipline this child like you discipline me, which is full of grace and truth, right? And it could just be Lord help, but some way of looking up to God before you look down at them so that you can be more like the God who parents you as you parent them." 27:49 - "I want to step on that so much because the fact that you fight with your kids or your spouse is completely ordinary. That's what happens to everyone in every family, whether you reconcile with your spouse and your kids, it's completely unordinary, that's what barely ever happens. And that's why families often go the way they do, in dysfunction. So the question of a Christian household is not whether we fight, we all do, question of a Christian household is whether we reconcile to them the way God reconciles to us. You need habits for that."   Conversation Links   Justin's Website The Earley Legal Group The Common Rule Habits of the Household   Links from dadAWESOME   https://dadawesome.org/life/ Make a Donation to dadAWESOME Join the dadAWESOME Prayer Team Receive weekly encouragement by texting "dad" to 651-370-8618

“All men must die”: or “Valar Morghulis,” as the traditional Essos greeting is rendered in High Valyrian. And die they do – in prodigious numbers; in imaginatively varied and gruesome ways; and often in terror within the viciously unpredictable world that is HBO's sensational evocation of Game of Thrones. As acclaimed medievalist Professor Carolyne Larrington writes in All Men Must Die: Power and Passion in Game of Thrones (Bloomsbury, 2021), the stories George R.R. Martin brings to life are epic in scope and in imaginative breadth, telling of the dramatic rise and fall of nations, the brutal sweeping away of old orders, and the advent of new autarchs in the eternal quest for dominion. Yet, as her book reveals, many potent and intimate narratives of love and passion can be found within these grand landscapes of heroism, honour, and death.

But these myths, which have helped fuel a historic spike in anti-Asian racism, didn't start with Sax Rohmer's “Devil Doctor.” Before Fu Manchu, there was Dr. Yen How, the villain of M.P.

Olivia also talks about toxic shame and its relationship to the institutions of Christianity.

Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you. She will give you a garland to grace your head and present you with a glorious crown.”   Questions We Discuss: What are replicable traits you have observed to be present in healthy and spiritually vibrant marriages? How is self-understanding related to honoring God and growing in intimacy in marriage? What is your advice when expectations are not met in marriage?   Gary Thomas' writing and speaking focuses on bringing people closer to Christ and closer to others.   He is the author of 20 books that together have sold over two million copies and have been translated into more than a dozen languages.

I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of his mighty strength, which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.”   Ephesians 2:8–10 “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God‘s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.“   Ephesians 2:13 “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.“   Philippians 1:6 “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Join the Black Women Stitch Patreon. Jen HewettJen Hewett is a printmaker, surface designer, and textile artist. Depending on how you look at it, artist is either Jen's second or fifth career.

She then briefly ran her own stationery business and took a few detours through business operations, human resources, and consulting before becoming a full-time working artist (again). She partly credits the success of her experience running her own creative business to her non-linear (but always interesting) career path.Jen's first book, Print, Pattern, Sew: Block Printing Basics + Simple Sewing Projects for an Inspired Wardrobe, was published by Roost Books in May 2018. Her second book,  This Long Thread: Women of Color on Craft, Community, and Connection, was published by Roost Books in November 2021. Her clients include Anthropologie, Cost Plus World Market, Moda Fabrics, Unilever, and Yelp. Her work has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Uppercase, and MSNBC. Lisa WoolforkLisa Woolfork is an associate professor of English, specializing in African American literature and culture.

So, I design primarily fabric and I have been doing that since 2018. I am on my third or fourth fabric collection at this point” —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please”“I have done a lot of textile art and didn't call myself a textile artist. I always say I am a printmaker first and everything flows from that, but I am owning it now, that I am a person who does and likes many things” —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please”“With printmaking, you do one thing and you do it over and over again, unlike being a painter who does a one-of-a-kind one thing. A printmaker is already set up operationally, it makes sense to do the same thing over and over again” —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please”“What's the saying like ‘walk around with the confidence of a white man and you will get what you want'?” –Nicole Angeline  in “Stitch Please”“The nice thing about the work that I do is that it is replicable. So it feels in many ways, low stakes. That I am constantly putting things out there, some will stick, some won't” —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please”“When I find books like this one, that are good and I like them, and I like to go back to them, because not every book you get that you are gonna go back to, but this one is nice and it's very digestible” —Ada Chen in “Stitch Please”“The overall consensus seems to be celebratory and gratitude, if I can put it in two words. Folks who are celebrating that this book exists and that women of color are having their voices centred and amplified, and talking to a variety of people. And then the gratitude which extends towards you for creating and pulling this together” —Lisa Woolfork in “Stitch Please”“I wanted it to be representative. Not necessarily everybody because that's impossible, but to include people who are not included” —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please”“In many ways, writing this book didn't feel like a race because I had this really strong sense that the community would have my back. But then I had to do everybody's story's justice in order for people to have my back”  —Jen Hewett in “Stitch Please” Resources MentionedAsian Sewist Collective Stay Connected:Lisa WoolforkInstagram: Lisa WoolforkTwitter: Lisa Woolfork Jen HewettWebsite: Jen HewettInstagram: Jen Hewett This episode was produced and managed by Podcast Laundry.
