Episode 46- Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. ft Leila Abdallah.
In this episode I sit down with Leila Abdallah. On the first of February 2020 four of Leila's children and three cousins went off to buy ice cream. The children were hit by a speeding, drunk driver. Four of the children were killed, three were her's.
Leila shares how this tragedy has affected her family, her faith and perfect strangers. Leila captivated the hearts of thousands of people as she spoke from her heart the day after her children were killed. She spoke of forgiveness, of justice and of faith.
Faith is a gift, one that is freely given. But for a gift to be given we have to receive it, otherwise it is just an imposition. When you listen to Leila you get a glimpse of just how freeing that gift is. Faith doesn't take away the pain but it gives meaning and purpose to it. Thank you Leila for showing the world that earth has no sorrow that heaven can't heal.

Episode 44- How many likes till love? Ft Katrina Alvir
In todays episode I chat with Katrina Alvir a trained teacher and mentor and developer of the REAL program. This program looks at developing character and virtue in teenager girls between the ages of 12-16.
Never before have girls been so pressured to be 'PERFECT'.
We now more than ever need to teach our daughters to cherish, love and respect their bodies.
We need to teach them how to lift and champion other girls.
We need to teach them that comparison only brings anxiety and they should not compare their bodies, looks or talents.
We need to teach them that beauty comes all sorts of shapes, colours and sizes.
We need to teach them that their own inherent dignity, worth and value can only be fully recognised as a beloved daughter of God.
We need to teach them that human love, just like God's love cannot be bought or earned- it is freely given.
We need to teach them that they are enough, they are loveable, just the way they are.
BUT to teach them this we need to believe it OURSELVES.
