Senior Superlatives with Greta Titelman
Comedian Randy Sklar joins Greta this week with a FIRST for the podcast... an actual high schooler (his daughter Daisy Sklar)! You'll hear about the differences between going to public school in St. Louis in the late 80s vs. performing arts school in LA in the 2020s and how Randy and Daisy were friends in another life (according to a psychic). In this mega episode we get different kinds of grievances to the Guidance Counselor and find out that Gen Z has turned back to flip phones instead of smart phones. Randy tells us about his matching tuxedo-with-tails prom outfit with his twin Jason, but for Daisy.... the rest is still unwritten. Listen to Randy and Jason's podcasts "Dumb People Town" and "View From The Cheap Seats" and watch them on UFC's "The Nosebleeds". Knock Knock! If you want the Guidance Counselor (Greta) to give you advice from your high school past, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Classmate's Corner" with a brief description of what you want to get off your chest from your youth! Who knows, maybe Greta and her next guest will read your submission and offer some sound guidance... Watch this, and all episodes of Senior Superlatives with Greta Titelman, here.

Holmberg's Morning Sickness - Monday January 23, 2023
"Happiness is good medicine..." (Proverbs 17:22 ERV) Emotions are there for a reason. If we know what each emotion in our lives is there for then we are able to identify how to respond correctly to each emotion instead of reacting to the emotions in a way that they control us. Episode 76 of the Youth Worker On Fire Podcast is where this theme first came from, while interviewing a world changer who grew up in a violent alcoholic family. Maury and his wife grew up in homes of alcoholic parents. His healing knowledge of what it took to finally deal with it emotionally is worth taking notes on. Happy, Sad, Mad, or Glad… and sometimes Scared or Numb (according to OliveMe Counseling). "Good things happen to those who learn from their experiences…” (Proverbs 16:20 ERV) _______________________________ Looking for a new student ministry resource?

K.T. Griffiths is the author of “Shhh… Mental Illness: The Silent Disease”. In today's episode, we are discussing a topic that many quickly write off or ignore all together. We try to keep mental illness quiet, because it's sensitive and hard for many people to understand. Everybody seems have an opinion, even if they've never had to experience it directly. Friends reject you. while others will embrace you for the long-haul. You will find out who your friends are when dealing with this personal pain. If you aren't going through this, you probably have a friend or family member who is. According to Romans 8:18, the sufferings that we go through now are nothing compared to the glory that we will receive. When you go through the pain of a child who is hurting in any way, you can breathe and fight for that child even if it takes the rest of your life. Thank you youth workers, parents, grandparents, and volunteers. Thank you for fighting the fight for these and those who cannot fight for themselves. You are true heroes! You can find “Shhh… Mental Illness: The Silent Disease” on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/3k6JVvg Please consider purchasing a copy or a few to gift to those you know will gain value on this topic. For more information, please visit: https://ktgriffiths.com/ ______________________________ ABOUT THE AUTHOR K. T. Griffiths offers her first book, a memoir, to all those who faced the realities of life and parenting. As a mother of 6 children, she has been tried and tested in so many ways that this book became a necessity. People know her for her wisdom, honesty, and authentic empathy for the plight of others. It is exactly this trait that has equipped her in this book to introduce you to chaos of the mind amidst life's relational struggles and emerge stronger than before. ______________________________ EPISODE CREDITS Email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org Hosted by: Doug Edwards Theme Song: "The One and Only" by The 808 (Listen to more at: https://bit.ly/3FTYIAJ) Edited by: Ryan James Edwards at Secret Roots Music House Recorded by: Doug Edwards ______________________________ CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO MORE YWOF PODCAST EPISODES: https://bit.ly/3saDyYq

Dr. Fred Hill was my pastor since I was in middle school. I came to know the love of God for the first time through him and his ministry. All ministries that God has led me to and allowed me to lead are because Dr. Hill said “Yes” to God when asked if he would become the pastor at our church. Dr. Hill was also a professor at High Point University in High Point, North Carolina where he taught educational psychology. He was a man of great integrity and humility. He loved God and he loved his family. I am forever grateful for his example of God's Love.
