30 Years Behind Bars Yes But The Jailbreak Will Surprise You!

A female prison doctor shares where compassion is surprisingly found.

Karen Gedney Corps Scholarship winner, she was placed in a male medium security prison after her training, to do a four-year payback in 1987. Against all the odds, she turned it into a calling that lasted almost three decades.

She was given The Nevada Hero’s for Humanity Award in 2000 for her work as a pioneer in HIV care in correctional settings. Karen was also recognized by the American Correctional Association as one of the ‘Best in the Business’.

On leaving the prison in 2016, Karen dedicated her life as a catalyst to shift the current prison paradigm to one of prevention, healing and re-integration. Her first book is her memoir, 30 Years Behind Bars, Trials of a Prison Doctor and is available on her website and on Amazon.

What would it take to love you more and feel more loved by others?

Self-acceptance is a powerful practice that allows the ego and one’s surroundings to be transformed, while judging yourself keeps you from accepting love from others.

Through self-acceptance, you can experience more love in your life.

But, how do you fully accept yourself when you don’t know how?

Joining us on today’s edition of Light On Living is psychotherapist, soul healer, and the author of the new book, An Intimate Dialogue With God: The Miraculous Power Of Unconditional Self-Love, Noemi Grace, to share how to deepen your acceptance of self, others, and life.

Noemi channels new perspectives from God on unconditional self-love, forgiveness, divine grace, and life’s purpose.

Her passions include sharing these beautiful uplifting messages and helping people heal their minds, hearts, and souls. She lives with her husband in the Boston area.

Smack Dab In The Middle of Happily Ever After – With Debbie Cunningham

Today’s show is for all the couples out there struggling in the middle years of marriage.

Ok so you know there was a time that you fell in love and flashes of that time come back but can you really stay there or … get it back??

Debbie Cunningham , Jazz recording artist and Author absolutely knows that you can and she’s been entertaining couples with songs of love and romance for more than a decade.

Married to her high school sweetheart for more than thirty years and unwilling to sit idly by while divorce rates climb in today’s society, she began writing songs about the journey and celebration of committed love. That writing led to her search for and gleaning wisdom from married couples who had gone through hard circumstances and stayed together, all to provide hope for other couples in their journey of making love last. Her newly released book, Dancing in the Kitchen, is a lighthearted, yet honest look at what it takes to build lasting love in marriage, even through adversity.

In Dancing in the Kitchen, Debbie shares her own marriage experience through seasons of grief and her daughter’s unexpected health issues, weaving in stories of other couples who have stayed together through infidelity, terminal illness, loss, infertility, addiction, and, in an unusual twist, even the journey of an arranged marriage. These couples have found connecting points that allowed them to stay in love and defeat the rising divorce statistic. Ultimately, every married couple has seasons of struggle, which can either bring a couple together or push them apart.

With lighthearted candor, Dancing in the Kitchen reveals to readers how to cultivate connection with their spouse in the hard seasons and stay in love for a lifetime.

Join us as Debbie shares a few of those couple’s stories and some love action steps as a guiding light for all you beautiful couples to stay in love.

Hope & Healing: Co-Creating Your New Life After Loss with Misty Thompson

Today we visit the positive side of grief as Misty Thompson, author of From Grief To Acceptance, shares with us the 5 Encouraging Phases of grief. Her book and her words teach us an active process for healing while honouring our loved ones.

She is able to do this so compassionately as she found a way to truly heal after experiencing her own traumatic loss of a loved one. I’m so looking forward to having this conversation with Misty because once I finished reading her book something very unexpected happened to me personally!!! I experienced healing that I didn’t even know had to be done and I was left with a sense of peace and joy that I never even knew I was missing.

My wish, my intention for you, our very important listener, is that after today’s episode with Misty that you too will have some pain lifted and that hope and healing will enter into your new life.

David Essel – Finding Deep Love

Aired Monday, 22 April 2019, 12:00 PM EST / 9:00 AM PST

“David’s – Angel On A Surfboard – takes sexy and respect to a deeper level to help the reader find true love. “So without the pain or discomfort we experience in relationships we couldn’t experience true love?” “Because we’d have nothing to compare it to?” Two questions that when asked actually bring forth a knowingness. A realization of the gifts we access from each of our partners for us to find self love and true love all around. So glad you don’t surf David because poolside writing is your thing.”

That was my own personal review of David Essel’s NEW book – Angel On A Surfboard.

Today’s show gives us a wonderful opportunity to speak with David who always floods our time together with waves of guidance towards ways of feeling our most loved and best self.

About the Book

Nationally syndicated newspaper columnist Sandy Tavish, regarded as the top male “love expert” in the USA, headed to the Hawaiian islands in search of relaxation and the answers to real, deep love that had eluded him for years.

He had no idea “who” was awaiting his arrival. Within days he began having the strangest encounters with a retired surfer who just would not leave him alone. This guy knew his every love… his every thought… and if that wasn’t mysterious enough, he also seemed to have somehow tapped into Sandy’s quest of finding and sharing the keys to deep love…
