Delilah: Help For Pointe Hope

My heart was forever changed by my 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Lyons. Her son had been in Vietnam, and after the war he stayed there to care for orphans. We were encouraged to bring in our used clothes and books, and we boxed them up and sent them to these kids. We collected soda pop cans to pay for the shipping, and it changed my heart forever.

Being able to actually DO something to help those who are less fortunate, instead of just reading about it, changed me on a cellular level. I pray that teacher knows how much she impacted my life. If your kids want to be Jr.

It's Actually Spring!

It’s nice when we have a transition like we did this year from “winter” to “summer” starting around the first of March.  We didn’t have much of a winter at all in Evansville which didn’t exactly break my heart but I was worried we’d miss out on spring altogether.  It’s far more common to see “summer” to “winter.”  You know, those years when it’s 87 degrees right up until November 1 when the temp suddenly drops to 37 and all the leaves fall off the trees at once.  Thanks to last weekend’s weather however, we were treated to a picture perfect Easter weekend with brilliant

I Know Sammy LIved

 

On Sunday, March 11 the Lord called our beloved Sammy Young D’zolali Rene home to heaven. I had adopted Sammy from an orphanage in Ghana, West Africa two years ago, and he instantly became a part of our extended family and a huge part of our hearts. Sammy’s love and happiness were infectious, his broad smile would light up the room.

TORNADO VOLUNTEER RELIEF/ 40 DAYS OF WATER

We discuseed on the show today the horrible weather and tornadoes in the area this past week.  I want to give you information about how you can volunteer and get involved.  Also, we discussed Blood Water Mission's 40 Days of Water.

The Weather Guy

With the 2012 severe weather season starting with a bang, it's time to seriously review your family's emergency plan.  Everyone should know exactly where to go in a weather emergency and if possible, to get there in 30 seconds or less.  You need a flashlight (with working batteries,) a NOAA weather radio, and if you have a smart phone, download the free app Tune In, which allows you to listen to WIKY on your phone.  During a severe weather outbreak we simulcast WFIE-14's wall-to-wall weather coverage so you'll have a source of information at the ready

Delilah Has Piglet Fever

Delilah: Mother, grandmother, radio personality, artist, gardener, horse enthusiast, PIG MIDWIFE! Sister sows on my farm just gave birth to the most adorable little piggies. 14 in all!

Of all the things in life I imagined myself doing, cutting piggy umbilical cords and tying them off with string was NOT on my list. They are very small but are starting to squeal and run around!

So many of you have asked about my little piggies, so I thought I'd share my pictures with you. They are growing everyday and so cute.

National Human Trafficking Awareness Month

Updated from January 15th show:

At this very moment, there are 27 million people in slavery around the world.  This is more than ANY other time in history.

Does that statistic hit you like it hits me? That is staggering and unbelievable, but we can do something about it!

Gettin' a Little Salty...

My Aunt Ida is a a retired nurse and she is always on the lookout for ways to improve health. 

Here is an article that she sent me regarding salt and since we still have a few days left for "Heart Month", I thought it was a good read.

Who knew we were getting more salt from bread than chips?  Apparently the CDC did.
