Activating the Power of YES means putting our hearts, minds, and voices behind the highest and best intentions of what we want—for ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities. Whatever we think, say, or do becomes a prayer to the universe, so learn to use this power wisely! Join Rev. Beverly Molander for Affirmative Prayer: Activating the Power of YES as she chats with a wide variety of well-known and respected guests from around the world to find out how they activated their own Power of YES—in relationships, health, prosperity, creative self-expression, or with organizations that make a positive impact. Instead of saying, “No, I don’t want that,” you’ll be saying, “Yes, yes, yes, that’s the kind of life and world I want!” Beverly or a guest says an affirmative prayer in the last show segment so you can learn how to use this valuable tool in your own life.

What Is the Future After Foster Care?
Mike Daley has a pretty good idea of what it’s like to be a young adult who is moving out of the foster care system and into the world of adulthood. He is the inaugural board chair and president of the Orange Duffel Bag Initiative, a 501(c)(3) that provides at-risk teens and young adults programs to improve their educational success, advocacy, and support to their guardians and caring adults. If you know a foster care child, or are one yourself, you know how important it is to have support. To volunteer at any level, go to theodbi.org. You may be the one to start up an ODBI in your state!

How Can We Deal With Difficult People?
Sarah Elliston knows how to deal with difficult people and would even label her past self as such. If you know of someone who complains, blames, criticizes, nags, threatens, or punishes, this show is for you. Sam explains how we can neutralize the hot buttons, communicate without judgment, and have a conversation without confrontation. She encourages us to write down and practice what you are saying before you start talking. While listening to the show, you might just see some of your own behavior that requires attention! It’s difficult to look at, but better results will be on your way. Sarah's book is titled Lessons From a Difficult Person: How to Deal With People Like Us.
How Can We Relate to the Transgender Experience?
Linda Herzer, author of The Bible and the Transgender Experience, has a Master of Divinity degree. Gabrielle Claiborne is an out-and-active transwoman since 2010 who has a bachelor's in mathematics and a aster's in civil engineering from Georgia Tech. She grew up in a family of ministers, married, and fathered three children. As Linda and Gabrielle talk about the transgender experience from a biblical, personal, and spiritual perspective, you will see why clients like The Home Depot and Georgia Academy of Family Physicians have participated in their workshops and presentations. Perhaps it’s time we recognize that our divine spark is different and unique for us all.
Do You Have the Courage to Speak out or Speak up?
Ronna Detrick, M.Div., is a writer, speaker, and provocateur of passionate conversation about women and faith. Her book Throwing Stones shows us how underlying attitudes of the male/female relationship formed long ago. In some cases, the deeply held beliefs women hold about themselves today have not changed. Are stones still being thrown at women today? Are women accepting this because they are still feeling self-conscious and ashamed? How can we move beyond this? Ronna shares some suggestions for the hope and perseverance woman will want to experience during the Million Women’s March on Washington, January 20-21, 2017. Listen to this or pass it around before you go!
Are We Getting 'Nature Deprived Disorder'?
Susan Elizabeth Hale first appeared on my show talking about Earth Day—Sing to the Trees. This time she shows us the relationship between nature and her 11-year-old female character in her book, Emma Oliver and the Song of Creation. Are we depriving our children of time to commune with nature? What kind of life will they live if they step out, look up, and listen? This is a book that teaches us to "listen with your belly, not your head." Your belly is telling you to listen to the Song of Creation. Go ahead—Activate the Power of Yes! Order the book at songkeeper.net. (I ordered two!)
