Ben Higgins is best known from season 20 of ABC's hit series, “The Bachelor,” where he opened himself up to millions of viewers, giving them the chance to truly get to know him. The opportunity ultimately led to an enhanced platform that he now uses to share what he is most passionate about with others – his faith, his hope for humanity and his love of sports. Born and raised in Winona Lake, IN, Ben currently resides in Denver, CO, where he moved after graduating from Indiana University in 2012. Since “The Bachelor,” Ben has been keeping up with a number of projects with the help of some of his closest friends. Most importantly, Ben co-founded Generous International, a for purpose company dedicated to contributing profits to social issues around the world, starting with a cup of coffee. With a vision to change the way society thinks of consumer products, all Generous merchandise is designed specifically to create and multiply good in the world. Whether creating jobs, feeding children or improving education, it begins with giving back in order to build a world that we all want to live in. Ben stays connected with his loyal Bachelor following with his iHeartMedia podcast, “Almost Famous,” which he co-hosts with his friend and former Bachelor contestant, Ashley Iaconetti. With over 80 million downloads it's the perfect destination for fans to get an inside perspective on the popular franchise as they break down the current Bachelor season in addition to discussing pop culture, offering relationship advice and allowing listeners to keep up with their personal lives. In 2018 Ben partnered with nationally recognized chef Daniel Asher and the team at Culinary Creative Group to open his first restaurant venture Ash ‘Kara in Denver, Co. Ash ‘Kara is a globally inspired restaurant with influences from Israel, the Middle East, and Mesopotamia. Ash ‘Kara which is Hebrew street slang for “totally!” or “right on!” explores the continuous evolution of Israeli cuisine with ingredients and flavors from across Europe and North Africa including Yemen, Syria, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey and Spain into a menu of shareable items from Ash ‘Kara's wood-fired oven. In November of 2019 Ben teamed up with chef Blake Edmunds to open up his second restaurant “Mister Oso”. Mister Oso is a Latin inspired restaurant that channels his love of Central and South American cuisine through a casual, flavor-bomb menu of salads, smoked and roasted meat tacos, ceviches, and crudos. In August of 2019 Ben was announced by Warner Brothers as the host of their newest project “Bachelor Live On Stage”. In February of 2020 Ben and the team hit the road to tour 65 cities throughout the United States hosting a live show in front of 2,000 plus people every night. In March of 2020 in a response to the COVID-19 pandemic Ben and his team announced the start of an apparel project called My Fan Threads. My Fan Threads sells custom apparel online with a print on demand process model. Of all Ben's ventures, his longest-running connection has been with Humanity and Hope United, where he holds a seat on the board. Established by one of his best friends, Riley Fuller, Humanity & Hope United is a non-profit organization working to assist underserved villages in remote parts of Honduras. They partner with the people of each community to achieve sustainable change, focusing on the needs of individuals rather than a single issue or approach.

"How can I know God's will? " 2. "How can I be a success for God, others, and myself?” Trust is the most important factor in... Knowing God and His will for my life. Growing His Kingdom and myself as a steward. Proverbs 3:1-10 Observations: 1. The commands are all-inclusive. 2. The commands precede the promise. 3. The promises are conditional. Stewardship Statements: 1. God is trustworthy. He is worthy of our complete confidence. He is totally dependable. 2. God has entrusted or placed within our care, the possessions, the opportunities, the talents, and time that we now experience. 3. We are a trustee of everything that God has given us. Trustworthy Thoughts About God 1. God's Care is Constant. 2. God's Gifts are Generous. Developing Our Trust: 1. Trusting in Adversity. We are responsible to trust Him in times of adversity, but we are dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us to do so. 2. Trusting in Plenty. The extent to which we genuinely thank God for the blessings He provides is an indicator of our trust in Him. 3. Trusting God as our Source. Human tendency: Trust in God's instruments of Provision rather than in God Himself. "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, and they imagine it to be an unscalable wall." Proverbs 18:10-11

They were generous toward one another and sought to meet the social and economic needs of people in their spiritual family. Because they were so open-hearted, they were also open-handed.

"Quiet sex tips Noiseless sex doesn't have to mean passionless sex. The next time you need to keep it down, try incorporating some of the following tips: 1. Find a time when others are less likely to overhear Your lovemaking is less likely to attract attention if everyone is asleep. While you may still want to keep the noise to a minimum, you might have a bit more leeway in the middle of the night or the wee hours of the morning. 2. Do it in the shower Shower sex is less likely to be noisy in the first place, provided the shower you're using is big enough for two. Plus, there's added coverage in the sound of the water, which might also help you take your mind off the sound. Take care to avoid slips and falls, which could not only blow your cover, but also cause an injury. 3. Avoid the bed Beds, while great for sleeping, can make all kinds of noises when you're getting frisky. To avoid those telltale squeaky mattress springs, the floor is your best option. While it may not be the most comfortable, you can soften things up with a few blankets or pillows. 4. Change locations If proximity to other bedrooms is your issue, why not skip the bedroom altogether? You can avoid the possibility of your kids, relatives, or other guests in your own house hearing you by scouting out a new location. An office, basement, or playroom — pretty much any out-of-earshot room with a door you can close — will do just fine. However, this is not advised if you're in someone else's house. 5. Add other noise Added noise can give you a bit more flexibility as to how loud you can be. Music is a great daytime option to avoid arousing suspicion. At night, a white noise machine, television, or ambient music are a little bit more discreet when it comes to sound-canceling options. Of course, you'll still want to be mindful of your volume. 6. Always keep a pillow on hand Pillows are handy when you want to scream, but can't. Feeling kinky? Co-opt a tie or a scarf and tie it around your mouth as a gag. Not only will it help you avoid any involuntary cries when it's time to orgasm, it'll also up the excitement factor. 7. Focus on outercourse and oral sex Quiet sex is a great opportunity to break your routine. Avoid the bumps, thumps, and squeaks associated with penetrative sex by focusing on outercourse. Please yourself while your partner watches, or take turns pleasing each other." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

Religion-less Christianity, Religion-less Spirituality. I don't attend houses of worship, but I embody God-likeness

"As a human rights person, I may attend houses of worship virtually and in-person on occasions to lovingly engage the faith communities in the fight for global justice." - Antonio Myers "1. Religion promotes tribalism. Infidel, heathen, heretic. Religion divides insiders from outsiders. Rather than assuming good intentions, adherents often are taught to treat outsiders with suspicion. “Be ye not unequally yoked with unbelievers,” says the Christian Bible. “They wish that you disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them,” says the Koran (Sura 4:91). At best, teachings like these discourage or even forbid the kinds of friendship and intermarriage that help clans and tribes become part of a larger whole. At worst, outsiders are seen as enemies of God and goodness, potential agents of Satan, lacking in morality and not to be trusted. Believers might huddle together, anticipating martyrdom. When simmering tensions erupt, societies fracture along sectarian fault lines. 2. Religion anchors believers to the Iron Age. Concubines, magical incantations, chosen people, stonings . . . The Iron Age was a time of rampant superstition, ignorance, inequality, racism, misogyny, and violence. Slavery had God's sanction. Women and children were literally possessions of men. Warlords practiced scorched earth warfare. Desperate people sacrificed animals, agricultural products, and enemy soldiers as burnt offerings intended to appease dangerous gods. Sacred texts including the Bible, Torah and Koran all preserve and protect fragments of Iron Age culture, putting a god's name and endorsement on some of the very worst human impulses. Any believer looking to excuse his own temper, sense of superiority, warmongering, bigotry, or planetary destruction can find validation in writings that claim to be authored by God. Today, humanity's moral consciousness is evolving, grounded in an ever deeper and broader understanding of the Golden Rule. But many conservative believers can't move forward. They are anchored to the Iron Age. This pits them against change in a never-ending battle that consumes public energy and slows creative problem solving. 4. Religion diverts generous impulses and good intentions. Feeling sad about Haiti? Give to our mega-church. Crass financial appeals during times of crisis thankfully are not the norm, but religion does routinely redirect generosity in order to perpetuate religion itself. Generous people are encouraged to give till it hurts to promote the church itself rather than the general welfare. Each year, thousands of missionaries throw themselves into the hard work of saving souls rather than saving lives or saving our planetary life support system. Their work, tax free, gobbles up financial and human capital. Besides exploiting positive moral energy like kindness or generosity, religion often redirects moral disgust and indignation, attaching these emotions to arbitrary religious rules rather than questions of real harm. Orthodox Jews spend money on wigs for women and double dishwashers. Evangelical parents, forced to choose between righteousness and love, kick queer teens out onto the street. Catholic bishops impose righteous rules on operating rooms." --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

Every good thing we have is a gift from God, and our giving (and overall generosity) begins with how we receive good gifts from him. Do we really recognize that all we have is his? Am I a "sponge" with the good gifts he gives, always trying to hold on to as much as I can, or a "hose" that operates as a conduit, receiving his blessings so I can bless others? Giving begins with receiving and reveals your heart, setting the stage for God's blessing.

To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 The Bible tells is in 1 Timothy that believers should provide for those who preach the Gospel. Some of the first disciples to obey that directive. Today, Sharon Epps joins us Rob West to discuss the generosity of women in the church. Sharon Epps is Chief Operating Officer atKingdom Advisors. Scripture records that women were among the first supporters of Jesus' ministry. Let's look at the beginning passage of the Parable of the Sower in Luke 8. It reads: After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod's household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means. From Mary Magdalene, a first patron of the early church, to Lydia, an industrious entrepreneur who strategically funded early missions women historically have been generous wealth creators and stewards. Year after year, research conducted for the Women's Philanthropy Institute (WPI) reveals that households headed by women at all levels of income and wealth are more likely to give. Sharon Epps co-founded an organization called Women Doing Well, which commissioned a very revealing study. More than 7000 women of faith participated in the research, which provided the following insights: KEY INSIGHTS FROM STUDY OF RELIGION RESEARCH ●Christian Women are Generous with Their Time and Money: They are 300% more generous than the average population with their money and 400% more generous with their time. ●Discipleship Plays the Major Role in Shaping Generosity Among Christian Women. Research revealed that women with a strong understanding of Biblical teaching on stewardship gave higher percentages of their income away. ●94% of women we surveyed wanted to give more than they currently give. ●There are 3 common challenges that hindered women's desire to give more: ○the lack of financial planning ○the lack of clarity of their purpose/passion for giving ○and lack of accountability partners ●The study also revealed the most women felt they could give more and that they desired to give more. ●Women with a Strong Sense of Calling/Purpose Are More Generous Than Those Without.Women with the highest score on personal sense of calling gave on average 13.7 percent of their income to charity while women with the lowest scores on this scale gave 9 percent on average. Now, let's define what a giving passion is. It's a need that we care about so deeply that we are willing to sacrifice to address it. ●While purpose is permanent, passions often change over time and season of life ●As our relationship with God grows deeper, our passions align more with God's passions ●We learn what God is passionate about as we read the Bible ●Authors Greg Baumer and John Cortines in their book True Riches, say it this way Throughout Scripture, God reveals three top priorities three big things He's up to in the world. He invites us to help with each of these, and we get to join our eternal dad in doing his work. As we take on these tasks, God grows our capacity to love, breaking us free from indifference. ●Understanding what God cares about certainly gives us better direction for our areas of passion ●These three big things from scripture are: ○serving the poor, ○saving the lost ○strengthening believers QUESTIONS TO HELP IGNITE PASSIONS Answering these questions may help women (and men) ignite their passions: ●What would I do if I knew I could not fail? ●My friends would say my soapbox is ●What brings me to tears breaks my heart pierces my soul? ●I always dreamed I would impact the world by ... LISTENER QUESTIONS On today's program, Rob also answers listener questions: ●Where should you give your tithe if you're between churches? ●What can you do to improve your credit score? ●When is it wise to refinance a mortgage?

To find out what God intended His people to be like, we have to go back to the Spirit-led church in the book of Acts. As we take a fresh look at their style, structure, and service, we get the full picture. This group wasn't a bunch of independent isolationists who met once a week. They were generous toward one another and sought to meet the social and economic needs of people in their spiritual family. Because they were so open-hearted, they were also open-handed.

In this weeks episode of Full Send Living Ethan & Nate discuss how generosity changes lives. Everyone should be more generous because everyone is rewarded when we care for other people. Generosity not only impacts the person being helped but it also greatly impacts the person being generous. Studies have shown that when people give to others they experience what is known as the "Giving High" which is when the brain experiences a rush of reward hormones (dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) when someone blesses another person. Giving can not only change others lives. It can change your own!  Send it this week by finding someone in your life you can be generous with!

As we near the end of our series this week, we need to understand that blessings need to be recognized as gifts from the Lord. Generous people can receive these blessings as intended because their heart was in the right place. Greedy people may also receive blessings for their giving, but if the intentions are impure, they may not recognize it as God's blessings.

Generous welfare states are losing their key characteristics, not least in Sweden, where privatisation of funding has proceeded privatisation of provision, beginning in the 1990s. Supplementary exclusionary sources of welfare in healthcare, education, and social care, have proliferated throughout European welfare states under the neoliberal agenda that has dominated debate across the developed world. Rather than full privatisation, we see semi-private solutions, in which the citizen becomes the consumer, but remains subsidised by the state in their pursuit of private welfare, via tax breaks that benefit the richest in society most, rather than those with the greatest need. At the same time, private providers have been able to free-ride on the state, for example by hiring like doctors and teachers trained on state-funded courses, whilst the divided welfare state erodes the more generous, universal system by undermining the trust in it and the willingness of people to contribute to it. Ultimately, it replaces one view of social policy as an investment, something that generates wealth and contributes to the future, with another, of social policy as a cost, that takes up resources rather than generates them. John Lapidus' The Quest for a Divided Welfare State: Sweden in the Era of Privatization (Palgrave Macmillan, 2019) charts the development of this process in Sweden, beginning with the privatisation of provision, such as private hospitals and tutoring, and how it lays the groundwork for private funding, which puts pressure on existing generous and universal welfare systems sustained by the public sector. In our discussion, we identify the methods through which neoliberal advocates promote privatisation, and how ongoing privatisation becomes self-reinforcing to nullify opponents, win over ambivalent actors, and dominate the debate in the political sphere. We end on an optimistic note, looking at the education sector and discussing what we can learn from debates in this area to promote and restore equality throughout the welfare state. John is currently a Research Fellow at the School of Business, Economics and Law within the University of Gothenberg in Sweden, where he earnt his PhD in 2015. Prior to John's academic career, he spent several years as a journalist, and also spent time working in Nicaragua for the Swedish-Nicaragua Friendship Association, an international NGO that helps communities build self-help organisations and tackle poverty.

The Bible in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz)

Fr. Mike comments on the growing divide between Judaism and Christianity that Paul experiences on mission in Acts 21. In 2 Corinthians, Fr. Mike explains the difference between Godly grief that brings us to repentance, and worldly grief that leads us to destruction. We also learn about the importance of imitating the generosity of Christ. Today's readings are Acts 21, 2 Corinthians 6-8, and Proverbs 29:1-4.
