Rise of the Skin-Hungry–The Parker J. Cole Show

parker-j-cole-banner

Hugs make the world go around. I’ll be the first to admit that. When a master storyteller recently shared a fascinating article about people who are “skin-hungry”. That means, those who lack the personal, intimate touch of another human being. It is not a sexual thing as much as an interpersonal connection. The article discussed how some criminals were affected psychologically by the lack of human touch when placed in solitary confinement.

We would go further and look back to Genesis 2:18 “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.”

However, as this article postulates, people are becoming less and less interconnected. Human touch, connectivity is an essential part of being human. We need each other.  As the article states in it’s introduction: “As we live in an increasingly technology-focussed, socially disconnected world, we’re touching each other much less than before. But what does an absence of touch do to a person?”

Is it solely due to our dependence on technology that has caused this trend? Is it more? Join me for our continuing series with RD Palmer and I. You can call in at 929-477-1965 and press 1 to be live on air. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11419743

tammyI am a Christian, mom, hairstylist/colorist, runner, and have always had a passion for writing. When I was a child I created/made up the character Renee. Many years later, my daughter was in a writing class, and one of her books talked about writing all your thoughts down, etc… And so, RENEE came to fruition on my Coral Word. RENEE has come a long way since I first started writing it seven years ago. It wasn’t until a few months ago, as I was starting book 2, that it came to be a trilogy. I give a lot of thanks and gratitude to Thomas J. Harvey. He helped me through the first book and gave awesome advice.

**SPECIAL EDITION** Men in Love — The Parker J Cole Show

meninlove3Men in Love is a special show — it’s all about love, marriage, romance, and faith all from a male perspective. Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio guest hosts this edition of the Parker J Cole show.

This week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day. A holiday usually steeped in romance, from chocolate hearts, red roses, intimate dinners, and togetherness. However, in celebrating this holiday, marriages are broken, divorce rates skyrockets, and professions of love are only skin deep. For some people, they mean absolutely nothing, empty words for empty hearts.

As an author, I have access to authors from all over. I wanted to hear words of love and what love means from a male perspective. There’s a lot of misandry out there so I wanted to talk to men who used words effectively to show what love meant to them. Several men answered the call and their thoughts are for you to enjoy. Yet, I didn’t want to just say words. We NEED a biblical context for love, romance, marriage, and faith.

So, I reached out to Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio. I’ve been a follower of his show, his blog, and have had the honor of having him talk to us about Men in Love and what it truly means. His concise and poignant commentary is one that I hope will encourage and uplift you. Listen in at 929-477-1965. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11202903.
