    On Death & Dying With Author, Speaker, Thought Leader & Expert on End of Life Care, Barbara Karnes

    On Death & Dying With Author, Speaker, Thought Leader & Expert on End of Life Care, Barbara Karnes

    On this episode of The Power of Love Show we welcome special guest, Barbara Karnes, RN.

    If it has to do with death and dying, Barbara Karnes, RN is talking about it. Barbara Karnes, RN, is an internationally recognized author, speaker, thought leader and expert on end of life care and the dynamics of dying.

    Barbara’s career spans four decades and began as an early hospice pioneer during the AIDS crisis. In addition to the many years she has spent at the bedside caring for patients and their families as a nurse, Barbara has also served as executive director of hospice and various home-health agencies. She has also worked through the hospice ranks as patient care manager, clinical director, staff, nurse, and volunteer. Barbara is a dedicated end of life educator, training nurses and volunteers, authoring resource materials, booklets, movies, and her fabulous blog.

    Barbara’s experience as a hospice care provider at the bedside of hundreds of people, and as an administrator overseeing the care of thousands, led to the 1985 publication of ‘Gone from My Sight: The Dying Experience’. Affectionately referred to in the industry as the “little blue hospice book,” ‘Gone from My Sight’ has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, is published in 12 languages, and remains the leading resource on the market today educating families on the signs of approaching death.

    Barbara was recognized in 2018 as a Hospice Innovator by the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and was named the 2015 International Humanitarian Woman of the Year by the World Humanitarian Awards.

    In 2015, Barbara’s film New Rules for End of Life Care was featured in film festivals around the world and was the recipient of 10 prestigious film awards.

    Her articles have been featured in The NY Times, USA Today, The Huffington Post, Thrive Global, & The Washington Post, among others. Awarded the NHPCO Innovator award for her decades as an end-of-life educator and for her iconic booklet, GONE FROM MY SIGHT: The Dying Experience (aka: "the little blue hospice book").

    ‘The Silent Civil War’ With Author & Uncle of George Floyd, Selwyn Jones

    ‘The Silent Civil War’ With Author & Uncle of George Floyd, Selwyn Jones

    On this episode of The Power of Love with TJ & Taj Jackson we welcome back Uncle of George Floyd & Author of ‘The Silent Civil War: How The Murder Of My Nephew George Exposed The Hidden Depths Of Racism In America’, Selwyn Jones.

    Selwyn joins us to discuss the release of his upcoming book (February 2023) which is described as ‘a raw discussion of racism in America’, co-authored by Selwyn Jones and Nan O'Brien.

    The book presents an honest portrait of the subtle cultural divisiveness that has quietly been waged in American society against the Black Community for generations - the Silent Civil War - which can no longer be hidden beneath a facade of racial equality and political correctness.

    Through the use of personal anecdotes of Selwyn’s life as the son of a North Carolina sharecropper raised in abject poverty, combined with facts and figures, this landmark book provides irrefutable evidence of the true landscape of racial disparities in America today, and the causative impact George’s murder had on that understanding.

    Uniquely, Selwyn Jones, who is African American, and Nan O’Brien, who is Caucasian, have co-authored this book to reach the broadest, most diverse audience possible, with both authors holding the belief that the only way to bring diverse people together is to lead by example.

    Pre-Order Selwyn’s Book: https://www.fanentertainment.net/offe...

    ‘Rise Up, Little Bluebirds’ With Author, Kristy Boike

    ‘Rise Up, Little Bluebirds’ With Author, Kristy Boike

    On this episode of The Power of Love Show with TJ & Taj Jackson we welcome special guest and children’s author, Kristy Boike.

    Kristy lost her mom to cancer and turned grief into hope through her work with “Rudolph’s Bluebird Houses”.

    Now, she’s written a children’s book about processing loss entitled: “Rise Up, Little Bluebirds”

    “Rise Up, Little Bluebirds” is a sweet tale of grief and community, told through the eyes of a bluebird family who are searching for ways to keep the memory of their dear Grandma Bluebird alive.

    When speaking of her book, Kristy says, “I hope that the message of hope in ‘Rise Up, Little Bluebirds’ will resonate with children and adults alike while delivering a compelling message in today’s uncertain times that though we may be separated from the ones we care for, love is the unending connection that binds us all.”
