This month we salute Graduates and Fathers. My nephew Andre graduated from Licking Heights High School and is an aspiring chef and entrepreneur. My “super woman” sister, earned her teaching certificate with an awesome GPA (we’re some smart chicks) while working, maintaining a home and caring for her five children. I especially want to celebrate my husband Ivory. He is the epitome of a real dad. Not only willing to teach our son, but celebrate his victories and correct him in love when necessary. Last month as we gathered as a family to pray one morning, Ivory lead Devon into pra yer in a way that was rather ingenious. I had taught Devon the Lord’s Prayer when he was two. Originally, he, an avid fan of “My Friends Tigger and Pooh,” when he got to deliver us from evil, boldy declared, “deliver us from Eor,” who is Christopher Robin’s pessimistic, depressed stuffed donkey. My son would proceed then to pray for all of the characters on Nickelodeon. After two years he just began speeding through it, seeing how fast he could get to the end. This day we asked Devon to pray in our prayer. Usually he runs upstairs, however he has begunto ask us for “things” now. All kinds of things namely red Chuck Taylors and a PSP. Ivory explained to Devon that prayer to God was as easy as aking Daddy for those chucks or that PSP. He explained that we can have everything we want or need by asking God. This little boys face lit up and he went to praying for the toys

he wanted and said “Amen.” Ivory and I continued in prayer and Devon interuppted and said I forgot something and went back to praying. Afterward he blessed all of our family, his grandparents, cousins and all of the kids in Ms. Felicia’s class. There is something about a dad leading his son in prayer and I admire my husband for his influence on our son not only naturally, but spiritually.
Happy Father’s Day. Love Celeste

Partners For Parents Sharon M. Purnell - President/CeO
Partners For Parents is based on the belief that “Though bruised we are not broken; we are stronger than our situation. We are not defined by our circumstance, but by moral principal, divine purpose and the truth of our character.” It’s a simple concept of helping others move from one place to another with the intention of making one’s life better in the moments to come, than it would have been a moment ago.
At Partners For Parents we offer clothing to those in need and we receive the items through the kind donations of others. We offer basic mediation for families who need a little guidance in reaching peaceful solutions that unifies the home and family. For those who have been out of the work place for a while or for those looking for employment, we sponsor a job readiness program that will help each individual in their search. Our job readiness program has much to offer such as current job opening, assistance with building résumés’, grooming techniques and mock interviews to create confidence during the actual interview. We offer GED study groups and after school tutoring and we also are reaching out to our U.S. Veteran to see how we can better service them within their social
environment. We have a program called Parent Partners and these individuals are there to assist single young parents with resources and referrals, educational and occupational mobility, environmental and social awareness, as well as other needs and issues. This all began ten years ago when I received a phone call from a friend who was in need of help. The help she needed was within my realm of possibilities, so I reached out and gave her a hand up. People often ask me why do I try to help folks and what’s in it for me. The reason “why” is because it’s necessary. My reward is being able to help someone who simply asked for it. “To whom much is given, much is required.” My little bit of nothing might be a major contribution to someone else living on less than what I have to offer. I think to myself all the time that I need to be my own primary client, seeing how most of us are just a paycheck away from homeless ourselves. On some days, the difference between me and those I try to help is that I come into an office and I try to figure it out for everybody. I’m the person next door; wife and mother of three, struggling trying to hold it all together. But I believe that we
are perfectly made for our purpose, so I’ve decided not to think below my privilege, act beneath my favor or speak below my authority, but to go get my blessings. This summer we look forward to servicing low income and homeless children by sponsoring a camp program focusing on and addressing the concerns of childhood obesity and juvenile diabetes as well as prevention. It’s our intention to get the children interested in exercising, eating and living healthy. We will also use this opportunity to perform outreach services to the youth and their families. We can’t reach every child in every family, but it’s a start. If you are interested in having your child attend, please call us at 781-9432 or come by our office on Saturday between the hours of 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM to register. God has found favor in me in spite of myself. In the words of the song writer; “He saw the best in me, when everyone else saw the worst in me…..He saw….The Best!” You better believe it’s not over, not for me and not for you. God has a plan; it’s already been done; stand still and watch God work it out for you.

Teenagers Want Successful Careers and Global Travel, Expect to Delay Marriage & Parenting Spring is graduation season for millions of students. What are the aspirations of today’s teenagers as they think about their future? A new research study from the Barna Group examined a representative, nationwide sample of 602 teenagers, asking them to describe what they think their life will be like roughly 10 years from now, when they are young adults. To help teens respond with a specific time horizon in mind, the survey asked them what they believe their lives will be like when they are 25-years-old. College and Career The most common aspirations of teenagers were related to college and their professional pursuits. Finishing a college
degree was their top-rated future priority. A majority of teenagers felt certain that they would accomplish this goal by age 25. In all, 93% of teenagers said they would either definitely or probably obtain a college degree by their mid-twenties. In terms of career,
81% of teenagers felt they are likely to have a “great-paying job” by the time they are 25. Displaying their we-want-it-all perspective, 80% of teens also believed they would be serving in a “job where they can make a difference” by that age. God and Global Having a connection with God and international travel emerged as second-level priorities. Nearly three-quarters of teenagers felt they would have a close, personal relationship with God (72%) in the next decade or so. About seven out of 10 youths (71%) said they will definitely or continued on page 14

Dear Church Lady, I recently visited a church and I really enjoyed myself the people were nice the Choir was very good and the holy spirit moved throughout the building and I want to join my only concern is that the Pastor did 15 years in Prison now how can I trust a man who has been locked up to guide me in my spiritual path. Signed, Set Free Dear Set Free, Jesus, Peter, Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Malcom X , Nelson Madela just some of the people I know who have been locked up and I would trust them to teach me just because a person makes a mistake in life does not mean they cannot change and become who God wants them to become, now you said
the Holy spirit moved throughout the service well if GOD can be apart of that ministry so can you ..my advice go into into Prayer and ask God to guide you in your decision, just do not hold it against the Pastor that he made a mistake in Life. Smooches
Dear Church Lady, What would you do if you knew that a friend of yours was having a affair with a Deacon at your Church, I am so upset about this because if I say something I am either gonna ruin a Friendship or I am gonna ruin a Marraige, I feel really uncomfortable knowing this information, please help me ! Signed, Upset in Dayton
Dear Upset, Pull your trifling Friend to the side and ask her what means more Him or the Friendship explain to her the predicment she has placed you in and ask her to stop, if she refuses the nyou know where you stand with her becasue if she will pick her lust over your sanity that is not a friend, and tell him that you know also and tell him that he needs to stop his actions becasue it is not conductive to him being a man of God and you do not want to go to the Pastor over his actions. I am gonna be in prayer for you because I know that you are in the middle of a very hurtful situation but God can and will turn this around. Love,

sports World Cup: 200 Brazilian volunteers to share Gospel
Brazil’s soccer team, which will be competing in the upcoming World Cup games in Johannesburg, and the crowds of Brazilian fans accompanying the team to South Africa, will be a key focus of outreach by 200 volunteers sent by Brazilian Baptist Convention’s World Mission Board.
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (BP)-Brazilian Baptists plan to share a Christian witness at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Johannesburg, South Africa.
For 20 days, 200 Brazilian volunteers working with the 2010 African Connection Project will conduct outreach activities among soccer enthusiasts at the tournament,
which runs from June 11 to July 11. The Brazilian Baptist Convention’s World Mission Board is organizing the project as part of its volunteer program to send Brazilians overseas on short-term missions trips. Brazilian Baptist pastor Marcos Grava, coordinator of the initiative, noted, “The 2010 African Connection Project is one of the biggest volunteer projects in the history of the missionary church in Brazil.” The goal is to bless the people of South Africa with the Gospel message, Grava said. “We ask prayers for local security, volunteers’ security and many fruits among the South Africans and tourists,” he said. Some of the planned outreach includes praying and doing personal evangelism in front of stadiums, conducting arts and sports clinics with spectators and providing a health clinic for poor communities in Johannesburg. The Brazilian volunteers will travel to Johannesburg in two groups: the first from June 3-20, the second from June 6-22. Grava said he is particularly interested in the opportunity to reach out to players from countries that are traditionally closed to the Gospel along with supporters of those teams. Grava also hopes to prepare a number of

various radio formats. “This is my testimony of what God did for me,” Moore says of the inspiring ballad. “He’s blessed me with a voice but He had to break some things in me in order for me to be given to the nation.” First of all let me say “You Go Girl.” I absolutely loved every song on this album. Lucinda’s bold, crisp, sassy, sanctified style not only is entertaining but edifying to the soul. The CD has a pleasant mix of uplifting praise songs and intense worship. The title track Blessed, Broken and Given ministers to the inner core of who we are as believers and our willingness to endure the breaking process so that we can be blessed. One of my personal favorites is “There is a River” it took me right into the presence of the Lord. I wanted to get on my face and just worship. I loved the fact that she added some
Black Pearl Enterprises is pleased to announce that Psalmist Doris Stokes, was nominated for the 2010 I Hear Music Gospel “People’s Choice Awards” in SIX (6) Categories and WON IN ALL SIX NOMINATING CATEGORIES on this past Friday night’s awards ceremony (May 28th) at the Aronoff Theater in Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio! This is the first year for the awards which was presented at the annual I Hear Music Conference by founders Bobby & Tracey Artis. “Praise & Worship…Unleashed!” the first solo project offering by Ms. Stokes which was released as an Independent effort on her own label nationally (1 Voice Music) in January 2009 and has garnered high praise from radio and industry professionals alike;
with a dynamic selection of songs of which she penned about half of the CD’s 15 tracks. “Friday evening’s awards was nothing less than MIRACULOUS and AWESOME for me! I’ve never experienced the presence of God on my life in that manner before…I was totally taken off guard by this honor. It’s all very overwhelming to take in. However, just to be recognized and appreciated for what I do for the Father, BY the Father is actually why I continue in the Call that is on my life. Just knowing that He’s pleased with my work is reward enough…honestly.” says Doris. Doris and the CD project “Praise & Worship Unleashed” were nominated and WON in the following categories: • *SongoftheYear(CalypsoPraiseSTRIKE!) which features Elder Carnell Murrell • *Female Artist of the Year • *Praise & Worship CD of the Year (Praise & Worship Unleashed!) • *Vocal CD of the Year (Praise & Worship Unleashed!) • *Producer of the Year (which she shares with Minister Keith Leak) • *Artist of the Year
Doris not only served as one of the songwriters on her Freshman solo project, but also held Producer & Executive Producer responsibilities along with her Husband & Manager, 30 year plus music industry veteran, Bruce Knight. “Doris’ hands were in every area of the planning process of this project as she’s a PRO and a stickler for being presented with excellence….especially if her name is going to be on it!”…says Bruce Knight. The CD was produced by herself and long-time friend, Minister Keith Leak, who is also a native Daytonian now residing in the St. Louis, MO area. “Keith is blessed in the art and ministry of music production and worship…what a gift he carries. I was so glad we were finally able to find an avenue that we could work together on in our adulthood. I love him and his wife Keeley very much and am glad to call them “friends” says Doris. So after this, what’s in store for Psalmist Doris Stokes? “Whatever He wants will be fine with me…I’m learning to not box God in nor to try and pre-supposed what He will do because He will continue to FLOOR YOU everytime…LOL!”

chivalry continue. He opens doors, helps her to her seat, makes sure she’s comfortable. Following light conversation and the meal, he pays and then drives her home. He escorts her to the front door and at the most, he kisses her on the forehead or cheek. From there, they part ways. No overnight stays or late-night rendezvous.

After conferring with her parents—my wife and I discuss the arrangements for the daddy-daughter dates—they leave. He opens the car door for her and then drives to a restaurant where his acts of
While consulting with my cousin— Christopher “Doc” Reid—about relationship issues, the conversation shifted to the importance of a father’s active involvement in his daughter’s life. The following interview was created from the novel, The Forbidden Secrets of the Goody Box:
Life After a Painful Divorce Divorce Hurts Men too!
Are you imprisoned in a marriage of verbal assault and felonious neglect? Has the fear of failure and opinions of others held you hostage? Determined to break free of the strongholds that held him captive, J. K. apprehended inner peace and received a pardon from the Lord. In Life After a Painful Divorce (LAPD), Jonathan Sanders exposes the feelings, fears and inner turmoil that pursued him during his divorce. Without blame or accusation, he delves into a man’s perspective on the transition from hurt to healing. Grounded in biblical hope that transcends gender, Sanders reassures you that your life is justW beginning. You’ve been served! After reading this book, you will learn:
Valerie: Doc, the last time we talked you were on a date with your daughters. Why? Doc Reid: In my coaching, I’ve seen a lot of women who are carrying hurt from their childhood into relationships.
Valerie: From absent fathers and deadbeat dads?
Valerie: So why don’t fathers teach these things to their daughters?
Valerie: Hunter is eight and Kennedy is four; so other than the dates, how do you teach them about relationships? Doc Reid: I use age-appropriate visuals to address the emotional aspect of relationships.
Valerie: By all means, expound. Doc Reid: Once I used a pitcher of water, an empty glass and food coloring to explain how daddy loves them. I rattled off a few things that I do to show them that I love them; each time adding a little more water to the glass. Then I asked them what things Daddy does to make them feel loved. When Hunter said that our weekly dates make her happy, I added water. Kennedy said that our evening prayers are important to her; I added more water. By the time we finished talking about all the things I do that lets them know Daddy loves them, the water was spilling onto the table. Since the glass was full—symbolic of their love tank—there wasn’t room for anyone to add to it.
Valerie: So where does the food coloring come in? Doc Reid: I wanted to emphasize how other things will be presented that will taint the purity of the water. I added several colors of food coloring, created a dark concoction and offered it to them to drink. Of course they didn’t drink it.

Doc Reid: That and from fathers who don’t teach their girls about men. Having a father in the home is a great thing, but just being there isn’t enough. Most fathers focus on provision for the family and often times overlook their role in nurturing and instruction. A father is a son’s first hero and a daughter’s first love. The hero part comes natural between a man and his son because men thrive on respect. But the love thing; it takes more effort.
Doc Reid: My commitment to fatherhood is to show my girls who they are and fill their emotional love tank. If Hunter knows that she is motivated by words of affirmation and I have poured into her, then she won’t be smitten by every joker who comes along with good game. As long as she knows that’s her button, she won’t respond out of emotion

Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full. Psa 78:25
Grilling Pizza At Home On The Rise
(NAPSI)-The number of American grill owners who have grilled a pizza has nearly doubled in the past year, the 21st annual Weber Grill Watch Survey shows. In addition, 32 percent of American grill owners say they are using grilling accessories, such as pizza stones, more now than in the past. “It’s no surprise that more people are grilling pizza at home,” says outdoor grilling expert Jamie Purviance, author of the New York Times best-selling cookbook “Weber’s Way to Grill.” “Kids can help roll out the dough and choose toppings, and parents get to work the grill. It’s a great way for everyone in the family to get involved and create a tasty meal together.” Busy families can look for pizza dough in the refrigerated section of a grocery store. Those who like to make homemade dough should plan on a half-hour to prep and approximately two hours for the dough to rise. When it comes to toppings, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms and sausage are the most popular choices among pizza grillers--but the options are endless.
Here are six tips for grilling the perfect pizza from Chef Purviance:
The whole family may flip for this pizza with mushrooms, peppers, garlic and smoked mozzarella.
1. A grill pan is a handy tool for grilling small pizza toppings, such as chopped mushrooms and bell pepper slices. For garlic lovers, Purviance suggests roasting the garlic in a sealed foil pouch over indirect heat until the cloves are soft and beginning to brown. 2. Pizza dough is easy to flatten and stretch out when it is at room temperature. When using refrigerated dough, let it sit out for a few hours so it will warm up and relax. 3. The dough will be even easier to flatten if you use a small amount of olive oil on your hands as you press it into whatever size pizza you want. Finish flattening each piece of dough on a sheet of oiled parchment paper cut a little bit bigger than the dough. 4. The parchment paper will help to hold the

shape of the dough as you carry it to the grill and flip it onto the grate. After a minute or so of grilling, peel off the paper with a pair of tongs and discard. 5. The olive oil will prevent the dough from sticking and promote even browning. When the underside is crisp and toasted, transfer the crusts to a work surface, with the grilled sides facing up. 6. Arrange the toppings of your choice on the toasted sides and continue to grill the pizzas
until the bottoms of the crusts are crisp and the cheese has melted. Another tip for making pizza on the grill is to use a ceramic pizza stone such as the new Weber Style Pizza Stone. The ceramic helps absorb excess moisture and distributes the heat evenly, for a crisp, perfectly cooked pizza.

salon & style Guide
Utilitarian Chic: Get casual with cargo shorts and capris. Emerge from hibernation with a denim sundress or shirtdress layered with an adorned tank and bright accessories. Embrace the romper, a one-piece in shorts, or capris that are comfortable and versatile. Add a flouncy floral blouse to give the romper a feminine touch. Pair any of these looks with beaded sandals, ankle booties with a bit of cowboy flair or a cross-body messenger-style bag.
Pretty and Polished: Delicate details including lace, eyelets and ruffles are part of this feminine look. Flowing blouses and lightweight tops paired with pencil or tulip skirts make for a great office look. Draped or cascading cardigans are the perfect light layer over a strapless sundress. Wear a printed kimono with designer denim for a weekend look. Show off your girly side with a tissue-weight tee and a pair of paper bag−style waist shorts.

Brazilian players to present the Gospel to other countries’ players on the field when their teams compete against each other. Jorge “Jorginho” Oliveira, assistant coach for the Brazilian team, knows about and supports the outreach, Grava said. Oliveira is president of Atletas de Cristo, one of the Christian organizations supporting the African Connection Project. Of the 1,300 Brazilians who applied to participate in the project, only 200 were selected. Each was required to provide a recommendation letter from an evangelical pastor indicating the volunteer’s previous church involvement. The cost of participating in the project is about $2,500, and volunteers are providing their own funding. “We have people from different backgrounds and professions,” Grava said.

Top 7 Fitness Exercise Tips for Kidney Patients Regular exercise improves muscle function, helps control blood pressure, lowers cholesterol and increases quality of sleep. Despite the multiple benefits, many chronic kidney disease patients do not exercise enough due to concerns regarding what type of exercise they can do, how often they should exercise and how to create a fitness schedule. This month, the National Kidney Foundation answers 7 common fitness questions from CKD patients. 1. What types of exercise can I do? Choose continuous activity such as walking, swimming, bicycling (indoors or out), skiing, aerobic dancing or any other activities in which you need to move large muscle groups continuously. Low-level strengthening exercises may also be beneficial as part of your program. Design your program to use low weights and high repetitions, and avoid heavy lifting. One simple way to exercise and help many others with CKD is to join a local Kidney Walk 2. . How often and for how long should I exercise for? Exercise at least three days a week. These should be non-consecutive days, for example, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Three days a week is the minimum requirement to achieve the benefits of your exercise. Work toward 30-minute sessions. Remember to build up gradually to this level. 3. Can I take part in vigorous physical activity? Yes. In the past, it was thought that people with kidney disease would not be able to join in vigorous activity. We know now that patients who decide to follow an exercise program are stronger and have more energy. 4. How hard should I work while exercising?
If you’re thinking about adding a new deck, or even replacing or resurfacing an old deck, there are a lot of things to consider before you get started. Will you entertain frequently? If so, how many people will you need space for? If your area gets hot, humid summers, putting a deck in a southern or western location might make it a hot spot you’ll end up avoiding. Is it windy where you live? Then think about putting the deck where it will get some protection from the house or a screen of trees. What’s your budget? When calculating costs, decide the amenities and features you want such as an arbor, fire pit, multiple deck levels, and type of railing. How much maintenance are you willing to do? Composite decking is a lower maintenance option that more homeowners are choosing.

This is the most difficult to talk about without knowing your own exercise capacity. Usually, the following ideas are helpful: • Your breathing should not be so hard that you cannot talk with someone exercising with you. Try to get an exercise partner such as a family member or a friend. • You should feel completely normal within one hour after exercising. If not, slow down next time. • You should not feel so much muscle soreness that it keeps you from exercising the next session. The intensity should be a “comfortable push” level. Start out slowly each session to warm up, then pick up your pace, then slow down again when you are about to finish. The most important thing is to start slowly and progress gradually, allowing your body to adapt to the increased levels of activity. 5. When should I exercise? Try to schedule your exercise into your normal day. Here are some ideas about when to exercise: • Wait one hour after a large meal • Avoid the very hot times of the day • Morning or evening seems to be the best time for exercising • Do not exercise less than an hour
before bedtime 6. When should I stop exercising? You should stop exercising if you feel any of the following: • Very tired • Shortness of breath • Chest pain • Irregular or rapid heart beats • Sick to your stomach • Leg cramps • Dizzy or light-headed 7. Are there any times when I should not exercise? Yes. You should not exercise without talking with your doctor if any of the following occurs: You have a fever • You have changed your dialysis schedule • You have changed your medicine schedule • Your physical condition has changed • You have eaten too much • The weather is very hot and humid • You have joint or bone problems that become worse with exercise If you stop exercising for any of these reasons, speak to your doctor before beginning again.

TEENS from page 4
probably have traveled to other countries by their mid-twenties. Family and Church Marriage and church involvement were on the third tier of aspirations. Most American teenagers expect to be engaged in these traditional institutions (58% and 63%, respectively). However, only a small percentage felt certain about these outcomes in their own lives: 29% of teenagers felt they would definitely be “actively involved in a church or faith community” and just 12% of teenagers felt certain about “being married” by age 25. Teenagers are even less likely to entertain traditional goals regarding parenting. Less than half of teenagers (40%) felt they may have children by age 25 and only one out of 11 (9%) said they would definitely become a parent in their early adult years. Of course, considerations of marriage and parenting are dependent on finding a willing partner; nonetheless, these pursuits are not top priorities for most students. Fame versus Service Media are filled with celebrity news and obscure-turned-famous individuals often made stars via reality television. Given the cultural fascination with fame, perhaps it is not surprising that one-quarter of teenagers (26%) said they expect to be “famous or well known” by the time they reach age 25. To their credit, teens are more likely to express the desire to be “regularly serving the poor” (48%) than to be famous, although that priority is less flattering considering that only 7% of teenagers said they would definitely be doing such other-oriented work as a young adult. Matters of Faith Faith seems to influence what teens want in their lives. In terms of denomination, students who attend mainline churches were more likely than average to aspire to travel to other countries, while Protestant non-mainline attenders were above average in terms of their spiritual priorities (wanting to be close to God and active in a church). Non-mainline youth were also more likely than the norm to want to regularly serve the poor, yet they also were more interested than their peers in becoming famous. Strong interest in staying connected with a church was most common among non-mainline teenagers (49%). Only onequarter of mainline students (25%) and one-fifth of Catholic teens (20%) said they definitely expect their life to include active involvement with a faith community or church by age 25. Current church attendance appears to be a better predictor of future religious activity than is a teen’s religious affiliation. Among weekly attenders of religious youth groups, 60% said they definitely will be involved in a church in the future, which compares to just 22% of teens who attend less frequently and 14% among teens who never attend such religious functions. Age and Gender Demographic differences played a sig-
nificant role in teen aspirations. Teen girls and the United Methodist Church.
