Learn about a basketball tournament he’s partnering with Grace Fellowship Church to lead right here in St. Louis. He shares other nuggets of wisdom that go far beyond basketball.

Spotting the Truth in Media

When I was younger, I kept up with the news and admired those reporters who weren’t afraid to share the real story. When I hosted “Cry Justice” on WCBW and the rest of the Here’s Help Radio Network from 1995-2007, I enjoyed researching my topics, and offering a balanced perspective.

But within the past few years, it seems the reporters look for sensationalism rather than the true facts of the story. Social media and the internet have certainly increased platforms for sharing slants on stories. In my opinion, If we can’t share the truth, what’s the reason for being a reporter? Reporters were rewarded, it seemed, for their off the wall story. What we learned in journalism classes often seems to be forgotten.

Recently, I decided to interview  Business Analyst and Assistant Managing Editor from the MRC action group, Julia Seymour. My question: “What tips do you offer for finding out the real truths of a story?” Here’s what she shared.

How Do You Handle Life and Family When You are a Chronically Ill Mom? [Part 2 of 2]

When I read this book, “How to be a good Mommy when you’re sick; A guide to motherhood with chronic illness” I thought of all the moms out there who might be encouraged, enlightened, and empowered if I interviewed Emily Graves, its author. Here she was, a mom with a small child, never knowing from one day to the next how much energy she would have, how she would feel, and unable to predict what of her schedule she could accomplish that day. She gives very solid tips in this book in each chapter, following 5 premises. As I read further, I realized, how helpful this book could be to any mother, and how others could gain a clearer understanding of the dilemmas those of us with disabilities often face.

Listen as she passes along the wisdom she gained from her experience to other moms looking to stay organized in the midst of challenging circumstances.
