#45: Think Out, Be Light with Michele Thomas
How do we create a culture that is welcoming and inclusive of people that are truly different than what we're used to? And more than that, how do we train and teach our children to befriend those who might have been born a little differently than them? On this very special episode of LifeChat Radio on World Down Syndrome Day, we talk with Michele Thomas, Director of the DeSoto Soaring Eagles Center, on how we can teach those around us to love differently, and love unconditionally.

#40: Culture Shock with ShySpeaks
CULTURE >> it's a word that has become incredibly polarizing by the moment. Either folks are quick to jump into or impact it, or their running away from it, and hiding their children, and their wives, AND their husbands from it just as quickly as they can find the closest rock. So - what is the best response to 'culture' in 2017 for the person who wants to make an impact? We chat it up this week on LifeChat Radio with the one of the dopest emcees we know, ShySpeaks [shyspeaks.com], as well as our in-house Apologetics expert [we just gave him that title, by the way], Pastor Mike Mitchell [churchonthehillag.org] about what to do with the big "C" word.

#38: Community Redefined ft. Dr. Larry Terry
"We’ve figured out how to put people on the moon, but we haven’t learned how to stop killing each other." No Badges. No Guns. Just Humans. Dr. Larry Terry of the UNT Dallas Urban SERCH Institute discusses their approach to solving a problem that seems to be be plaguing our country and paralyzing our communities from real reconciliation and forward motion. The Community Leadership Academy is the nation's first peer-led leadership program that pairs police officers and community members together, and believes that "communities change when the institutions that bind them are strategically transformed from within." www.untdallas.edu/serch

#37: MegaIdeas w. Faith Anderson
How do you make your tiny idea a big deal? You hang out with Faith Anderson from Tenth Child Inc., that's how. This brilliant woman has executed about a million and a half amazing ideas, and caused them to come into fruition, including creating + hosting her own event at MegaFest AND the Stellar Awards. If you don't know what those are, do some Google searching, then be impressed. #ManifestationOnFleek [do they still say that?!] Ah well - who cares. She's doing it.

#36: The Blessing and Curse of Social Media
Everybody's just trying to eat -- we get that. And that hunger makes it super easy to go super cray on social media, especially if you're pushing a product, or music, or a service, or your kid's future career as a model. There's gotta be some balance and some strategy behind how this social media phenomenon works, right?

#33: The First Hundred Days ft. Hendrick Maison
OK, ok...so, we recorded this after the first 10 days, and, well, some pretty intense stuff had already happened under America's newly guided hand at that point. So, we did what LifeChatters do -- we chatted about it, because you'd probably do the same -- and you're probably STILL doing the same. We deep dive into some political chatter with super smart [very balanced ;-)] political guru [and straight-up truth teller] Hendrick Maison on this week's show. Love it? Like it. Share it.

These people give us hope that reconciliation is not only possible, but happening, even if it's only happening in pockets.

#31: Acting on the Dream ft. Markus Lloyd + Antwuan Malone
Forty-nine years from his death and fifty-four years from the infamous "I Have a Dream" speech, and the country that Martin Luther King loved and fought for so deeply yet seems to lie in deep distress, and perhaps even deeper discourse. Disagreement is our badge of honor. Efforts surrounding ideas of unity seem foreign to a country who touts individualism so much that the very notion of laying aside those ideas for just a moment for the sake of togetherness are concepts unknown. But doesn't unity call for just that? Doesn't unity call for us to lay aside our personal plights for the sake of the good of the whole? Isn't this the very idea for which Martin Luther King fought? We discuss this (and much, much, MUCH more) on this week's LifeChat Radio.

#30: It Was the Best of Times...
Doing something new is hardly ever easy -- at least that's the way it felt when we launched into the land of podcasting at the start of 2016. But thanks to a "a little help from our friends," we were able to more than get by -- we created something awesome that we think can help make a small dent of impact in this somewhat noisy world that doesn't always feed us the most positive food for thought. So, here's a little recap of what we think was a pretty successful year. And if you hear something you like, go back and listen to the shows you might have missed. We bet it'll make your spirit high.

#29: How to Start a Revoution pt. 3 ft. Edwin Robinson
We hear you. You're angry. Frustrated. You wanna do something, but you have no clue where to begin. What the heck are you supposed to do now? Well, if you're like us, you ask the people who are doing it, and doing it, and doing it well. This series is kinda blowing our brains, too. We're learning about not only the passion and fire required for someone to create change, but also the grave intentionality required to make shift happen in whatever space. Wanna create change? Here's your to-do list. Welcome to the revolution.

#28: How to Start a Revolution pt. 2: ft. Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa
I think we can all agree that the abortion debate is one about which we all likely have an opinion. With extremists on both sides, it's sometimes hard to consider what the in-between might actually look like. Perhaps ur conversation with New Wave Feminist Founder Destiny Herndon-De La Rosa seems to have navigated us to a place of new-found understanding. Perhaps organizations like her's, pro-life-pro-woman-pro-baby loving ones, will continue to reveal themselves and continue to provide resources to women who find themselves feeling the do the unthinkable because they feel it's unavoidable.

#27: How to Start a Revolution pt. 1: ft. Leslie Hooks and Genesis Gibbons
Everybody wants to be a revolutionary -- especially right now. Seems like every day, we see a new hashtag, protest or so-called 'movement' pop-up on social media. But how does one actually begin to shift change in a culture or concerning an issue? By definition, the tride and true plight of a revolution is "a forcible overthrow of a government or social order in favor of a new system." Perhaps we've seen more overthrowing than proposed new systems. Something to consider when you're one of the ones cheering for change. In this 4-part series, we're exploring what it takes to create a real revolution in a given area, step by step, inch by inch. #LifeChatRevolutionaries
