    85. Best Of: Putting Humanity First - Steve Sosebee

    85. Best Of: Putting Humanity First - Steve Sosebee

    While working as a journalist on the West Bank, Steve Sosebee met two Palestinian children who'd suffered traumatic injuries when their home had been bombed. Their innocence and injuries touched Steve's heart. He became determined to find treatment for them and through his efforts, they received free care in Akron, Ohio. 
    Returning to the Middle East, he was determined to help more of Palestine's children and others throughout the region get the care they so desperately needed. With that, the Palestine Children's Relief Fund was born.
    Politics was pushed to the side in favor of humanitarianism and love. For the past nearly 30 years, Sosebee has been steadfast in his purpose - bringing aid, compassion, and love to children who are so gravely in need.
    Listen as Steve Sosebee speaks with host Bill Ellis about the big challenges and even greater rewards of living a purpose based on humanity over politics.

    84. Best Of: Secure Attachment: Faith, Family & Friends - Fleet Rand

    Today's guest, Fleet Rand, has a core belief that all of us are seeking secure attachment - a relationship that matters. Such a relationship might be with a family member, a spouse, a higher power - basically any one that can provide unconditional love.
    Fleet is a Mental Health Professional specializing in individual counseling, family counseling, drug and alcohol recovery counseling, treatment placement and relationship counseling. He has helped thousands of people directly and countless others through the ripple effect of his counseling.
    What helps set Fleet apart from many others, is that he has navigated his own journey - one which took him from hell on earth to the highly respected, loved, person he is today.
    Life can be overwhelming for all of us at times. For others, it can seem that life's challenges are endless. One key take away from Fleet in today's episode is to keep in mind that Hope Wins!
