Changing the way we think about the homeless and the hurting

December 9, 2016

Most of us are concerned and compassionate when we see someone who is struggling in life. That struggle takes many forms and often expresses itself in the person being hurting or homeless. We have ideas about why the person is in that situation, and we might even have ideas about what can or should be done to help. But, wait a minute. What if we're wrong? What if our observations and assumptions are not accurate or don't tell the whole story? What if there are different answers? There just may be some things we hadn't seen before. Tune in to our conversation with Bill Russell, Executive Director of Union Gospel Mission. Find out what you may have been missing, and what you can do about it. https://secondhalfnow.com/

Surviving and Thriving with a Disability

Do you know anyone who lives with a disability?  Anyone in your circle of family and friends?  What do you think when you see someone in public in a wheel chair or with obvious limitations?  Do you ever think about what life must be like for them and their family?  Maybe you have said to yourself, or to someone else, “There, but for the grace of God, go I”
 
This show digs into the issue of disability.  The Viggianos have been there.  And they are still there.  If you want to know what you can do to minimize the harsh impact of a disability, and get a ray of hope, you’ll want to hear this show. https://secondhalfnow.com/

Coaching: Perhaps the most important key to success

November 21, 2016

Baby Boomers grew up wanting to change the world. Then reality struck: it’s called “life”. We realized that the world was a lot bigger, and we were a lot smaller than we realized.

But maybe it’s not too late. Do you still have things you want to do that will make a difference in your world?  Maybe we can’t change the world like we thought we could, but just maybe we can find a couple things in our life that we would really like to achieve or accomplish. Things that would make life better for us – and for others around us. There is one key to success – maybe at the top of the list - that will give us the results we want. https://secondhalfnow.com/
