It is our pleasure to kick off this holiday season with #1 New York Times Best Selling Author, Debbie Macomber.

Her special holiday book – Call Me Mrs. Miracle has been made into a movie and will premier on Saturday November 27th on the Hallmark Channel.

About the book and the movie: This Christmas, Emily Merkle (call her Mrs. Miracle!) is working in the toy department at Finley’s, the last family-owned department store in New York City. And her boss is none other than…Jake Finley, the owner’s son.

For Jake, holiday memories of brightly wrapped gifts, decorated trees and family were destroyed in a Christmas Eve tragedy years before. Now Christmas means just one thing to him — and to his father. Profit. Because they need a Christmas miracle to keep the business afloat.

Holly Larson needs a miracle, too. She wants to give her eight-year-old nephew, Gabe, the holiday he deserves. Holly’s widowed brother is in the army and won’t be home for Christmas, but at least she can get Gabe that toy robot from Finley’s, the one gift he desperately wants. If she can figure out how to afford it…

Fortunately, it’s Mrs. Miracle to the rescue. Next to making children happy, she likes nothing better than helping others — and that includes doing a bit of matchmaking!

Did you know that there are ten million single mothers in the United States alone? One of the main problems that single mothers have is finding male role models for their children.

Women are raising children, their teachers are more than likely to be women, and many children have little or no interaction with their fathers. Children raised by single mothers have a higher risk of being involved in violence, gangs, criminal activity, are less likely to graduate from high school… and the list goes on and on.

How are boys supposed to learn what it means to be a man? Women, men, psychologists and organizations around the country are trying to answer this question.

In 1950, Radhanath Swami (nee Richard Slavin) was born into a middle class Jewish family in Chicago. At age 19, he set out to wander the world in search of a closer connection to God.

He hitchhiked across Europe and the middle East — through Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and ending up in India. Along the way he survives multiple near-death encounters including run-ins with drug smugglers, robberies at knifepoint, an attack by a pack of wild dogs, being held captive by a large venomous snake, and nearly suffocating in quicksand.

Penniless and half-starved, he arrives in India and climbs to remote regions of the Himalayas where levitating recluses are among the many famous and unknown mystics who train him in the life of a wandering mendicant.

Today, Radhanath Swami is one of India’s premier spiritual leaders, with public appearances that draw thousands of followers. Last winter he was invited to the Presidential Palace to meet the President so she could personally thank him for all he has done for India. His contributions include: the formation of a massive food distribution center for indigent children, the establishment of orphanage, an eye clinic, and a hospital that heals both the body and the mind.

His Holiness Radhanath Swami and I will be discussing his extraordinary memoir THE JOURNEY HOME, and his remarkable journey to enlightenment.

The adult entertainment industry and the world of Hasidic Jews couldn’t be more different. Or could they? Here’s novel evidence that all the world really is a stage — it’s only a matter of which costume you wear.

David Arbus will be graduating from high school in the spring of 1975. His divorced parents offer two options: embrace his mother’s Hasidic sect or go into his father’s line of work, running a porn theater in the heart of New York’s Times Square.

What else would a healthy seventeen-year-old with an interest in photography do? He joins the family business. But he didn’t think it would mean giving up his sister and mother altogether.

Joshua Braff’s Peep Show is the story of a young man torn between a mother trying to erase her past and a father struggling to maintain his dignity in a less-than-savory business.

As David peeps through the spaces in the screen that divides the men and the women in Hasidic homes, we can’t help but think of his father’s Imperial Theatre, where other men are looking at other women through the peep holes.

As entertaining as it is moving, Peep Show looks at the elaborate ensembles and rituals, assumed names, and fierce loyalties of two secret worlds, pulling away the curtains of both.

Joshua and I will be discussing, can his novel about pornography and religion possibly be kosher?

Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday Sept 14th from 10-11am U.S. CDT to join Joshua and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.

So what does it mean to be “black” or “white” in America today? Is it something that can really be defined? And, if so, what exactly would those racially-defining characteristics be?

Mishna Wolff, a former model and a humorist tackles this question with humor, intelligence and style in her national bestselling book, I’m Down.

It is essentially the story of Mishna’s childhood growing up in a poor black neighborhood as a white girl being raised by her single father, a white man who truly believed he was black. “He strutted around with a short perm, a Cosbyesqe sweater, gold chains, and a Kangol – telling jokes like Redd Foxx, and giving advice like Jesse Jackson.”

Unfortunately, she didn’t quite fit in with the neighborhood kids: she couldn’t dance, she couldn’t sing, she couldn’t double Dutch, and she was the worst player on her all-black basketball team. And yet when she was suddenly sent to a rich white school, she found she was too “black” to fit in with her white classmates.

From My Mama’s Kitchen Presents… “A Mother’s Day Revelation with Suzy Stauffer, the Founder of “Beyond the Bus Stop!”

suzy-stauffer1

According to my nine moms, if not at conception then certainly during delivery, moms, in just an instant, realize that their lives have just changed forever. The most important person in their lives is no longer themselves, rather it is their baby.

However, with this new responsibility comes a new challenge – the balancing act of motherhood, and one’s self identity and well being. If left unchecked, it can sometimes become so overwhelming that what was once the joyous time of a woman life soon fizzles away into a dreaded routine, which will eventually affect the entire family’s synergy of togetherness.

Suzy Stauffer’s personal triumph in overcoming this experience resulted in her creating an organization called Beyond the Bus Stop.

Today, Beyond the Bus Stop, as an organization, through its various local chapters and through its online support, has helped countless women nationwide to overcome these challenges.

What kind of a woman chooses to become a surrogate?
What is she thinking when she’s pregnant with someone else’s child?
How does she feel when she delivers the baby into the waiting arms of the parents?

“It was truly amazing to share such an intimate journey with another couple, and I feel grateful for the privilege of being entrusted with my cousin’s dreams and the opportunity to give them the gift of a family. Giving is what makes life meaningful.” – Pamela MacPhee.

Pamela and I will be having a candid conversation about her experience as a surrogate mom as we look back and celebrate her personal journey of “unconditional motherly love”.

Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday May 18th from 10-11am CST US to join Pamela and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.

From My Mama’s Kitchen Presents…“A Mother’s Day Initiative by #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber – “Knit1, Bless2.”

“Mother’s day is a very special time for me. I make it a point to be at home on that special Sunday to celebrate with my children and grandchildren, and honor the memory of my own mother. This year I thought about the babies born into this world who may not have all the advantages that my own children and I enjoyed. I wanted to find a way to help — and knitting for charity has always been one of my passions. It seemed like a natural: I could encourage my many readers who knit or crochet to mark Mother’s Day by making one special project – Knit1, Bless2.” – Debbie Macomber.

Debbie and I will be discussing this very special heartfelt project – “Knit1, Bless2” for Project Linus Mission, Newborns in Need, and Binky Patrol, and her latest book “Hannah’s List: A Letter of Love” as we celebrate Mother’s Day 2010.

Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday May 11th from 10-11am CST US to join Debbie and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.

This mother’s day is particularly very special for a few thousand parents and their children because it was 35 years ago last month that they became a family due to the gallant efforts of a few courageous men and women, and the President of the United States who collectively undertook a humanitarian initiative called “Operation Babylift.”

“Operation Babylift was a $2 million dollar US initiative that airlifted over 2,500 Vietnamese orphans out of a war-torn country in 1975 to protect them from the impending threat of the Communist Regime.

Lana Noone, is the author of “Global Mom: Notes From a Pioneer Adoptive Family,” and she is a Babylift mother who runs a website – Vietnambabylift.org which is a resource center for Operation Babylift history and families.

Tammy Nguyen Lee is an award winning film maker who took on a personal mission to bring Operation Babylift to live in her award winning film “Operation Babylift – The Lost Children of Vietnam” which came out in 2009.

We will be discussing the 35th anniversary of Operation Babylift, the impact it had on the children who were saved, and the joy it brought to the adopted parents.

Please call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday May 4th from 10-11am CST US to join Lana, Tammy and I live on the air with your questions and personal stories.
