"We are all unqualified, and that is a beautiful place to be. Just keep learning and growing." Christine Soule In the course of life, we go through different experiences that largely shape our present selves. Some of these we have control of and some we don't, yet they all prepare us for a greater purpose ahead. Our guest today, Christine Soule, has been through the most challenging moments in her life. Yet, she overcame them and now uses her experiences to provide life changing opportunities for women undergoing similar circumstances as she did in her community. Christine Soule's parents were divorced when she was only five years old. For the remainder of her childhood, she only saw her dad a handful of times. Her mom was married four times, and she considers her to be her absolute hero. All her mum's marriages except the last were filled with adultery, abuse, neglect, and addiction. Christine has three biological siblings, of which two of her brothers were raised by her dad, whereas her sister bounced back and forth. She met another fifteen of them at her dad's funeral. Her sister ended up having an affair with her adopted father, which made her sister become her stepmom and her dad her brother-in-law. This made her begin to spiral out of control.  Christine began doing drugs and alcohol at thirteen, and by the time she was seventeen, she was pregnant with her first baby girl. Less than two years later, she had identical twin boys. While living a gay lifestyle, Christine was also a drug addict and an alcoholic being abused and trafficked. She then realized she can't live like this any longer and that her babies deserved more. One day, Christine fell to her knees, and I cried out to God, "if you are real, take my life - it's yours!" Right then, she tangibly felt the power and presence of God, and she knew He was real. She knew He could change her life and that she needed to put her trust in Him. She ended up throwing away all of the drugs and alcohol and never had a desire, temptation or withdrawal since! She was completely set free and has never turned back since.  Today, she is married to the most amazing man on planet earth, and they have five children and two grandbabies. They have followed hard after God, and as a result, feel so abundantly blessed in every way. In today's episode, Christine will talk about her passion for helping women on the verge of being homeless and her motivation to bring out the potential of people around her. Listen in! Social Media: http://christinesoule.com/   https://www.facebook.com/Christinesoulewriter/about/ https://www.instagram.com/authorchristinesoule/g My parents were divorced when I was five years old, started doing drugs at the age of 10, got pregnant with my first child at 17 years, and less than two years later, I had identical twin boys. [2:49] I hated the world, and one day at 21, I fell to my knees, cried out to God to take my life, and I so tangibly felt the power and presence of God. [3:15] My experience set me out on this journey of figuring out who this Jesus guy is and how to survive with my three babies. [3:42] I wrote a check to the only person I knew who went to a Christian church and is also the person I've been married to for 24 years. [4:15] I went from extreme poverty to marrying what I believe is the most generous man in the world who allowed me to live a life of philanthropy. [4:37] For many years, I had the opportunity to pour into people's lives working with other organizations to have an impact. [5:46] One day I was driving down the road and encountered a homeless woman sitting on the side of the road. [6:00] At that moment in my car, I knew that I needed to go and make an impact, and that's where providence heights began. [6:42] There are so many amazing organizations that work with the homeless, and for us, we target to get them before they end up with all of the trauma of being homeless. [7:02] All of us, at some point in our lives have been at the edge of the cliff and the next critical steps that we take determines whether we start to fall off that cliff. [7:54] We are all about prevention, and when we bring them in, we offer entrepreneurial skills where we discover who they are and let them run with it. [8:40] We are in the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue, Washington, with 88 rooms available to us in the first year and a plan to expand to 138 rooms in the second year. [13:24] We are focused on having a spirit of excellence in everything that we do so that when we bring our next group of ladies in, the original ones will be training the next group. [14:11] We partner with Union gospel mission and other shelters in the area, so we're like step two for the women or preventive before they end up homeless. [15:34] We have amazing structures where we ask that they focus on programs working on their collective or life coaching. [16:44] Commercial break. [19:52] We have a vision that we're going to have apartment complexes with retail space, office space, and apartment complexes for everyday people to live in and women in need. [21:51] Everything we make at Providence heights 100% rolls right back into caring for people in need. [22:43] The objective is to create more and more buildings to house more and more people, set them free, and launch them into their destiny. [23:06] Amazing donors, friends, and partners that we have are how we're funding this. [24:04] Sustainability has been a real focus from the very beginning, and it is critical, not only for us but also for the ladies. [25:53] Believe in yourself, go for it, and go big. There's so much potential and purpose in a person's life. [28:06] So many people get stuck in the career they started in, yet they have zero desire to do it, so start to pursue your passion and be creative. [28:14] …………………..…..

Photo:    A portion of Howes Map (1776) showing "The Heights" [of Guan, which is a variant of Gowanus], north of the village of Flatbush. CBS Eye on the World with John Batchelor CBS Audio Network @Batchelorshow The Indispensables: The Diverse Soldier-Mariners Who Shaped the Country, Formed the Navy, and Rowed Washington Across the Delaware, by Patrick K. O'Donnell  From the bestselling author of Washington's Immortals and The Unknowns, an important new chronicle of the American Revolution heralding the heroism of the men from Marblehead, Massachusetts On the stormy night of August 29, 1776, the Continental Army faced capture or annihilation after losing the Battle of Brooklyn. The British had trapped George Washington's forces against the East River, and the fate of the Revolution rested upon the shoulders of the soldier-mariners from Marblehead, Massachusetts. Serving side by side in one of the country's first diverse units, they pulled off an “American Dunkirk” and saved the army by transporting it across the treacherous waters of the river to Manhattan. In the annals of the American Revolution, no group played a more consequential role than the Marbleheaders. At the right time in the right place, they repeatedly altered the course of events, and their story shines new light on our understanding of the Revolution. As the acclaimed historian Patrick K. O'Donnell dramatically recounts, beginning nearly a decade before the war started, and in the midst of a raging virus that divided the town politically, Marbleheaders such as Elbridge Gerry and Azor Orne spearheaded the break with Britain and shaped the nascent United States by playing a crucial role governing, building alliances, seizing British ships, forging critical supply lines, and establishing the origins of the US Navy. The Marblehead Regiment, led by John Glover, became truly indispensable. Marbleheaders battled at Lexington and on Bunker Hill and formed the elite Guard that protected George Washington. Then, at the most crucial time in the war, the special operations–like regiment, against all odds, conveyed 2,400 of Washington's men across the ice-filled Delaware River on Christmas night 1776, delivering a momentum-shifting surprise attack on Trenton. Later, the Marblehead doctor Nathaniel Bond inoculated the Continental Army against a deadly virus, which changed the course of history. White, Black, Hispanic, and Native American, this uniquely diverse group of soldiers set an inclusive standard of unity the US Army would not reach again for more than 170 years. The Marbleheaders' chronicle, never fully told before now, makes The Indispensables a vital addition to the literature of the American Revolution.

Like a tree, whose roots are firmly planted in the ground and whose branches reach toward the sky above, education at The Heights is at once traditional and forward looking. While drawing liberally from the western canon and “the best that has been thought and said,” to borrow Matthew Arnold's phrase, a Heights education is nevertheless at home in the modern world.  Neither the buried archives of special collections, nor the high-rising offices of enterprising tech start-ups are uncharted waters for Heights alumni.  Because of the double-nature of our approach to education, the question of how The Heights fits into the classical school movement produces an interesting and important conversation. To help us think through the ways in which The Heights is in dialogue with both the classical and contemporary worlds, we welcome Head of Upper School, Michael Moynihan, back to HeightsCast. With over twenty-five years of experience as a teacher, Michael offers us a nuanced discussion of: How a traditional approach to education can embrace the advances of modernity without losing its roots.   The ways in which modernity, properly contextualized, can help correct certain biases latent in classical thought.  The role of professional preparation in a liberal arts education. Whether or not one's work is clearly connected to the classical ideal of contemplation, the goal of education converges in the heart of a man who knows he is a son of God; and who, like the Son of God, sanctifies his ordinary work. Show Highlights  Is the Heights a classical school?  How does the Heights fit into the classical school movement?  The role of professor John Dewey in progressive educational trends.  How Dorothy Sayers' speech on “The Lost Tools of Learning” sparked a revival in traditional education.  Ought from an is? How our anthropology informs our education The baby in the bathwater: some positives of mainstream education today viz. the acquisition of professional skills. How modern thought corrects some shortcomings of the classical tradition. The vision of St. Josemaria and what this means for education at The Heights. How education can help students to passionately love the world. Sanctification of ordinary work and divine filiation.  Work as a sharing in the home of Nazareth. Is professional work a distraction from contemplation?  The teaching vocation  Suggested Reading  The Lost Tools of Learning by Dorothy Sayers  Passionately Loving the World by St. Josemaria Escriva

“If you can do something that makes you happy and that you really feel passionate about, it's not going to feel like work, it's going to feel joyous.” Two-time Tony Award winning theatrical producer Jill Furman is part of the driving force bringing Freestyle Love Supreme back to Broadway this month, after having originally brought it to Broadway in 2019. She is also currently producing six productions of Hamilton, including one on Broadway and one in London's West End. Additional Broadway credits include In the Heights, the 2013 revival of Cinderella, The Heiress, Seminar, West Side Story, The Drowsy Chaperone, Sly Fox, and Fortune's Fool.  Jill grew up in New York City going to the theatre with her parents, reading Variety magazine with her father, producer Roy Furman, and always knew she wanted to be in entertainment. She chronicles her journey from NYC, to LA, and back again, through college, grad school, and starting her own production company. Jill shares how she became involved with In the Heights very early on in 2003 after watching Lin Manuel perform in the basement of the drama bookshop; and how later the same year, she witnessed Freestyle Love Supreme for the first time. Jill also opens up about how she chooses projects to work on, highlighting the importance of her shows having a positive impact on an audience in some way.  In this episode, we talk about:  The special Tony Award given to Freestyle Love Supreme  Deciding when and how to bring shows back post-shutdown  The thought process behind remounting FLS on Broadway  Her preference for working in theatre v. film  Two new projects she has in development  Connect with Jill: IG: @jillfurman Connect with The Theatre Podcast: Support us on Patreon: Patreon.com/TheTheatrePodcast Twitter & Instagram: @theatre_podcast Facebook.com/OfficialTheatrePodcast TheTheatrePodcast.com Alan's personal Instagram: @alanseales Email me at feedback@thetheatrepodcast.com.

In certain school systems, it is perhaps more common to find students dissecting samples and diagraming abstractions. The boys in the Lower School at The Heights, however, begin their scientific formation not in a lab, among dead specimens, but in nature, among living creatures. Their text book is not full of paper, but of paper's source, trees; for their primary text is the book of nature itself.  In this week's episode, Eric Heil takes us outdoors--so to speak--for a discussion of natural history. With over fourteen years of experience teaching at The Heights, in addition to having spent time as a researcher both for at the Bronx Zoo and the Smithsonian's National Zoological Park, Eric offers us thoughts both practical and lofty.  First, Eric explains what natural history is and how it differs from other ways of approaching science at the elementary level. Then, he considers what a typical natural history lesson might look like. Next, Eric expounds the elements of nature journaling, a typical exercise for a natural history class. In particular, he explains John Muir Laws' three step framework for nature journaling:  Explain what you see.  Expound on what the observed reality makes you think of.  Wonder about what you do not yet know.  Lastly, the discussion takes a turn for the transcendental, as Eric considers some of the existential fruits of natural history.   Beyond books and diagrams, and indeed even the boy's own words and sketches, the study of natural history draws students into that mystery which moves those animals they have found. Perhaps this is the reason why natural history has been deemed the most important subject taught in the Valley: the silence that it instills is the beginning of a prayer; indeed, the greatest prayer, which is gratitude.   Show Highlights What is natural history and why does it matter?  Campus as the textbook itself How is a natural history class different from other ways of teaching science at the elementary level?  Jean-Henri Fabre and the importance of direct observation The parts of a typical natural history lesson What is a nature journal and how do you make one? The benefits of studying natural history  How natural history integrates into an education for realism.  Existential goods of natural history  Why is natural history the most important subject taught in the Lower School?

Supergirl and her team are consumed with finding Nyxly before she can cause more harm.  This causes a lot of frustration for Kelly who is left to worry about the residents of The Heights.  They were about to start a new chapter in the housing development. A new home would give some stability in their lives. Now they are left with a pile of rubble and debris that is leaving them all literally breathless. The people in charge won't help. Counselman Rankin is only seeking the best treatment for herself. Now that the building set aside for low-income housing is gone, she can build a more opulent building to attract more businesses to the area. The residents of this area will continue to struggle while Rankin gets richer. When Nyxly destroyed the building, she inadvertently infused it with fifth dimensional energy.  When Rankin is exposed to the energy, she begins to exhibit strange powers. When she thinks about something it magically materializes. Anything from a simple sandwich to a stack of money.  This comes at a cost to the other victims of the building collapse. Every time the counsel woman conjures something out of thin air the other victims get weaker and sicker. After Kelly calls James to vent, John Diggle appears in National City. He has been where Kelly is before, so James called him in to support Kelly. Sometimes our heroes are only looking at the big picture.   Our team is not perfect, and it is their imperfection that makes these scenarios so real. I was proud of Kara and Alex for the conversations they had with Kelly in this episode.  They both came from a humble place admitting that they can never understand fully what Kelly's life experience has been.  Conversely there are aspects of Kara and Alex's life that Kelly will not be able to fully understand.  We are all influenced by the experiences that build our life and make us who we are.  We all have blind spots. It is what we do when the invisible becomes visible to us that defines what happens next.

There's been considerable trouble in the Western Heights school district over the last couple of years...and "trouble" doesn't begin to describe it. Thanks to strong journalism by the folks at NonDoc and others, we were able to put together a pretty comprehensive timeline for you, which we'll detail in this episode (it is included below with links to all the stories). Remember: local elections matter. Timeline for Western Heights In October 2019, https://kfor.com/news/15-employees-resign-at-western-heights-school-board-meeting/ (15 employees resigned), ranging from bus drivers to the assistant superintendent, citing ongoing issues of mismanagement at all levels of the district. Two weeks later, still in October 2019, https://www.news9.com/story/5e346e6c527dcf49dad6e133/parents-call-for-investigation-of-western-heights-superintendent (parents in the district requested an investigation) into the district for these issues, and specifically wanted an investigation into Superintendent Mannix Barnes, his $220,000 per year salary, and the fact that the chair of the WH school board, Robert Everman, is his former employee when they worked at a casino. (Which is obviously directly useful knowledge for running a school district, right?) Before we go on, you've got to hear about the compensation package superintendent Mannix Barnes had at the time. And, again, remember that he had no experience as a superintendent when he was hired by the district just a couple of years ago. Barnes' contract with Western Heights included: A $220,000 base salary with a $75,000 retention bonus effective June 15, 2022; 20 days of unpaid leave for outside activities; Reasonable time off and pay for professional growth and community involvement; 25 semester credit hours annually to further education; Membership for community organizations including the Chamber of Commerce; 40 vacation days per year; 20 sick days per year; 20 personal business leave days per year. We'll do the math for you: that's a minimum of 100 days of paid leave. The district only has 167 instructional days. Anyway, in April 2020, the WH district got into hot water with the state board of education when the district unilaterally https://www.oklahoman.com/article/5659613/mayor-disagrees-with-western-heights-food-service-suspension (decided to suspend the free meal )program during the pandemic, despite the fact that 90% of the distinct's students qualify. The superintendent said some pretty inflammatory things about state superintendent Joy Hofmeister and OKC Mayor David Holt, including using the phrase “I double dare those two to come down here” and threatened to sue the state board. Nearly a year later in March of this year, the state board of education expressed “utmost concern” about the operation of Western Heights Public Schools https://nondoc.com/2021/03/25/state-board-accreditation-western-heights-schools/ (and threatened to end their accreditation), mentioning multiple issues, including: failure to provide in-person instruction since March 2020; a decision in the spring of 2020 not to provide nutritional services to students; an audit report showing violations of state law, including the use of 2018 bond proceeds meant for contracting and repairing facilities to pay off debt instead; a board member consuming alcohol during a public meeting; a 23 percent drop in student enrollment, from 3,365 to 2,597 in the past year, and a loss of more than 100 staff members in the past two years; disharmony in the school environment and community. In April the state board https://nondoc.com/2021/04/09/state-board-hands-out-probation-for-western-heights-district-and-sovereign-school/ (placed the district on probation) and giving them 90 days to remedy the situation or face being annexed by the state board. As you might have guessed, the district didn't comply and instead they filed suit against the state board, So, in June the state board... Support this podcast

— “People will disappoint you, life will hurt you, but if you have something that is completely yours to invest in, something you are passionate about, you can rise above pain and find personal joy and connection.” Valeria Teles interviews Sarakay Smullens  — the author of “Burnout And Self-Care In Social Work: A Guidebook For Students And Those In Mental Health And Related Professions — 2nd Edition.” SaraKay Smullens has had a multifaceted career in social work. Upon her return to working with families suffering from neglect and abuse, she learned that mentors she had earlier relied upon were leaving the field, explaining they were “burned the hell out,” and identifying the cause as “professional burnout.” The year was 2005. “At that time, burnout was not the household word it is today,” Smullens said. “I had never heard the term before, had no understanding of what it meant, or its differences from depression. I immediately began research, beginning to present findings in 2010.” Through this work, she realized that burnout can originate personally, professionally, in relationships, as well as physically. She identified burnout causation, and the easily recognized signs and signals that burnout is in the wings or already here. Smullens published the first edition of “Burnout and Self-Care" in 2015. It became a best seller. “I learned that students recommended the book to their professors and to their supervisors,” she said. “I also learned that professionals who were not social workers — teachers, lawyers, doctors, school counselors, moms, volunteer professionals, etc. — found the book's content and explanations relevant in their own lives.” Evidence-based self-care approaches to alleviate and prevent burnout are described for each of the 5 arenas, as are the differences between burnout and depression. Attention is also given to psycho-social developmental factors in the life of each child, as well as the impact of both moral distress and dysfunctional leadership in our personal, relational, professional, and societal-political worlds.  To learn more about Sarakay Smullens and her work, please visit: https://www.sarakaysmullens.com/     — This podcast is a quest for well-being, a quest for a meaningful life through the exploration of fundamental truths, enlightening ideas, insights on physical, mental, and spiritual health. The inspiration is Love. The aspiration is to awaken new ways of thinking that can lead us to a new way of being, being well.

As part of Liquid Church's annual At The Movies series, in this message Pastor Kayra Montanez shares the spiritual themes for faith, patience, and pursuing dreams found throughout the movie In The Heights. Based on the musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegria Hudes, the film is a celebration of Latino and Latina culture in the U.S. and follows the hopes and dreams of a vibrant, tight-knit immigrant community in the Washington Heights, New York neighborhood.
