I Don’t Have to Choose, Part 1 — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerTalking about gender and gender identity in today’s society can be tough. After all, some folks thinks gender is in the eye of the beholder while others think gender is a fluid state of a person’s identity. Still, others think that gender is based on a set of genetic programming which defines gender identity. In all this murkiness about gender and gender identity, there comes a question:

How in the world do I talk to my kids about this stuff?

After all, even among the body of Christ the topic of gender identity is a hot one, ripped apart by various doctrines, denominations, and intepretations. It all comes back to the question:

How in the world do I talk to my kids about this stuff?

Join in the conversation with my guest co-host and contributor, Ellie Klipp who is an elementary school teacher, mom, and grandmother and a student of Biola University as we talk about how to talk to your kids about gender and gender identity.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — More than the Madness with John Kaniecki

There is MORE than the MADNESS

This book gives readers a glimpse into the life of someone living with bipolar disorder. It’s not a clinical book filled with facts and figures, but a book of humanity.

Spanning childhood to early adult, through stories of abuse, being bullied, experimentation with drugs and alcohol, inpatient stays on psych wards, a night in jail, his college days in the fraternity, hitchhiking across America, and his time in a third world country, John gives the reader a personal and up-close look into his life as a manic depressive. The stories are sad, shocking, and at times funny as he shares his antics while at his most manic and delusional.

Throughout his journey, John also struggles with his faith in God. More than the Madness is a testament of one man’s journey to grow closer to God while gaining a better understanding of himself.

John wrote his story to help educate others on mental illness and remove some of the stigma associated with it. It is his hope that readers will get to know the person behind the diagnosis; take away the labels and meet someone’s son, friend, and husband. See that there is More Than the Madness.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Seekers of Earth with Kyle Pratt

Lucas Baldwin, the young son of a powerful lord, is on his first deep space training mission. Advancing through a captured facility he encounters a lunatic girl about his age. Only later does he realize that the girl, Rachel, is speaking English, a long dead language. Rachel talks of an Earth still in existence and more advanced than the horse-and-buggy world that had supposedly been destroyed.

All his life Lucas has been taught that more than three hundred years ago, pre-industrial Earth was destroyed by the advancing Valac hegemony. The Mage, a benevolent and highly-advanced race, were able to save a few thousand people. These surviving humans are offered sophisticated technology in return for their help in the fight against the Valac.

Humans have become the guardians of the Mage. But now Lucas wonders if the history he has been taught is all a lie—but such thoughts are treason.

The Parker J Cole Show — Is Human Intervention Necessary? *REBROADCAST*

Parker J Cole Banner

**REBROADCAST**

Hosts of movies, books, and TV shows often cast into a critical light the process of human intervention. From colonizing a planet in fiction, to cutting down whole rainforests in real life. Human intervention has summarily been the crux of all evil, according to some, in our society.

When it comes to climate change and energy policy, the idea of human intervention is too often ignored. With environmental alarmists, the idea that humans need to stop intervening with the planet is often met with a flurry of regulations and laws to penalize and curb such a thing.

But lets really discuss the philosophy of human intervention. Is it wrong? Is it right? Is it unnecessary? Join me as I talk with Dr. Calvin Beisner from the Cornwall Alliance as we take an in-depth view about human intervention. You can call in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air.

Cover Reveal! Time to Say Goodbye by Parker J Cole #EXCERPT

Time To Say Goodbye

The interesting thing about this book is that it’s the first book I’ve written to date where I didn’t have a title in my head. Titles change and I get that but usually the title of the story comes to mind easier than the ‘script itself. At any rate, I scrambled around for weeks searching for the perfect caption of this story. I peeked under rocks, scoured under the bed, and pulled open ever cabinet to find it.

Alas, that came to nothing.

When the title came to me, I wasn’t even looking for it. I happened to be listening to this song:

As Andrea and Sarah’s beautiful voices lifted into the air, it struck my head that this was it!

Look for my newest book and the second in the Michigan Sweet romance volumes at the end of this month!


EXCERPT

Though tears blurred Gargi’s sight, they could not mask the massive form as it stood outside the curtains. Hastily she swiped at her eyes. “What did you just say?” she repeated.
The man, hidden somewhat behind the drapes pushed them aside and stepped inside the secluded space. The area seemed to shrink in response to his tall, wide girth.
“I said I hope he rots.” The unmistakable note of pure, unadulterated sincerity scratched her already frayed nerve endings.
Maybe in other circumstances, at some other time and place, Gargi would have been alarmed by the idea of some strange man staring and peeking at their misery. Yet the last few hours had taken its toll on her. Dev’s condition threatened his survival. If he lived—
If he lived…
The idea, the thought of ‘if’ wrenched a sob from her.
Dear Jesus, please let my brother live. Don’t take him from me.
“Get out of here!” she screeched. “I don’t know who you are and frankly I don’t care. Just go.”
The man took another step toward her. She felt the intrusion of her personal space like a palpable insertion. He topped Dev by several inches. Broad shoulders, wide chest, and long arms with meaty hands. His hazel brown eyes contrasted with the red gold of his hair. A well-groomed beard and mustache framed the lower half of his jawline.
“I’m going to go.” The man’s voice had a gruff drawl to it. “You don’t have to know my name but I will tell you someone else’s name. Alma Bertha Reckley. She may not mean a thing to you and that piece of trash lying there but she means the world to me.”
He stabbed a long, thick finger at Dev’s prone figure. “That worthless scum stole my mama’s life savings. So, I’ll say it again. I hope he rots.”
Fire burned her skin like lava flow. A fine trembling wracked her limbs. This man, whoever he was, had no idea what he was talking about.
“My brother,” she gritted out, “did not steal anything from anyone. He was set up. There were four others involved in this scheme and they implicated him.”
“Baloney,” the man scoffed, his thin, narrow brows arching over his intent hazel brown eyes. “If he were set up, then where are these so-called conspirators? Nowhere to be found.”
Gargi stalked over to the man, barely conscious of her actions. All she knew was that she wanted to shut him up.
“Perhaps you don’t understand English well. My brother is innocent. He gave everything of himself to others. Orphanages, charities, churches, the list goes on.” Her arms flung wildly into the air. “How can a person that be the type to rob anyone?”
The man snorted. “People who don’t work for their money tend to part with it faster than those who do. Else, why spend a million dollars on a sports car?”
A haze of red blurred her vision. She snarled like a wild animal. “Get out! You have no right to be here.”
The man’s eyebrow lifted again in an arrogant way that infuriated her. Could he see the steam coming out of her ears? Why wasn’t he running away from the violent urges she fought to contain?
“I think I have every right. I want to see him either rot or do the time the good people of the U. S. of A. justice system ordered him to do.”
Every muscle in her face tightened until she thought she’d turn to stone. “Get out of here now before I call security.”
He shrugged. “Go right ahead.”
