The Olympics Start August 5. What are You Airing?

Chances are, your listeners don't know ...

Don't Be Silent

It's said that communication is key. 

As a mom of a teenager about to start high school, I couldn't agree more.

Reviving Our Hearts Today

Last December, I was sitting with my Dad and family in a hospital waiting room while my Mom underwent open heart surgery.  I still remember the shocking news coming from the TV that afternoon as we learned about the shooting in San Bernardino, not too far from my home in Orange County.  I felt hopeless and actually a bit guilty as it was a time where my attention was more focused on the immediate help that my parents needed.
