She imagined friends and colleagues pitying sher, wondering if she did any of the things she was falsely accused of.Jennifer hated wondering what they were thinking.

Many wondered how she had the guts to hang in there, when they themselves would not be able to weather the storm.As Jennifer opened up more, she realized many were on her side. That was the beginning of the repair process. Jennifer’s next step to recovery came when she hired a coach who helped her gain clarity and insight.

Hailing from Georgia, award-winning music duo Banjii and Mayuri announce the release of "Uncommon Love Story," a compilation of original songs, with each track telling a unique story but linking cohesively with the other. Every song is accompanied by music videos shot in different scenic locations across the United States while diving deeper into the minds, spirits, and lives of Banjii and Mayuri.The seven-part video series "Uncommon Love Story" loosely follows the eastern concept of the seven chakras, which are centers of spiritual power in the human body. The first song, which premiered on September 29, "Copper Lines," focuses on the first and root chakra, representing survival and grounding. While the second song, "Ancient Lover" released on November 19, focuses on the second and sacral chakra, expressing sensuality.Banjii and Mayuri follow the flow of their day-to-day lives when choosing the filming location for their videos, and each video tells a powerful story. Filmed at the site of their wedding in Arizona, the first video, "Copper Lines," highlights their marriage ceremony, which was planned in 48 hours with the help of an elopement company in Sedona. Although initially in Sedona, to celebrate the harvest moon, the song's impetus, timing, and synchronicity seemed fitting to celebrate and shoot at the location that was the inspiration for the music."Ancient Lover," the second song featured on the album, explores their love story, a story of neighbors who met and eventually fell in love during the pandemic. The video features California spots the two explored during their honeymoon.The duo believes in living their life to their full potential by surpassing stereotypes and expressing themselves freely and fully. They hope to inspire others to do the same. Mayuri shares, “Together we can surpass systems, borders, boundaries, stereotypes, expectations, obligations that are holding us back from reaching our full potential as individuals and as a society. While we know this conceptually, sometimes this is hard to apply practically. We believe in being the example by living the example.”For more information about Banjii and Mayuri, visit their website and Instagram. Ancient Lover and Copper Lines are available on all major music platforms, including Spotify and YouTube.

We as Americans are naturally enraptured by the commitment to community service as seen through the lens of a strong female - I’d love to introduce you to Mildred “Milly” Velez, the founder of the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America. Milly was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2007 and struggled with her search for answers for years. After years of enduring misguided and prejudiced medical care, she founded the Fibromyalgia Care Society of America in 2015. The Fibromyalgia Care Society of America is the only entity that provides specialized programs such as fresh food delivery and virtual assistance to the fibromyalgia community. An estimated 4-12 million+ people are living with fibromyalgia with little to no information or resources. In response to the lack of adequate education, treatment, and support for those living with Fibromyalgia, Milly and the FCSA came up with these services: • The Virtual Coordinated Care Program brings care, supportive services and telehealth directly to the person who may be homebound due to fibromyalgia or who may not always be able to travel to us given the complexities of living with fibromyalgia. This program provides an advantage as they are able to roll out services much quicker on a State Level vs. Cities/Counties.• The FCSA will launch its Center of Excellence Program with dedicated virtual supportive services that will offer training and coordinated care to individuals across the country. You can expect to find a team of care professionals who have the most up-to-date education on the care of fibromyalgia. Most importantly, individuals who are underinsured or have no insurance will be able to receive care and support regardless of their financial capabilities.• FibroCares is an innovative approach to caring for the community which offers a host of services such as: The Fresh Food delivery program, emergency financial support, employment assistance, and individualized support through a hotline.• The FCSA has launched a revolutionary approach to Empowerment Groups utilizing the principles of cognitive behavior therapy and group therapy sessions to offer attendees a concrete response to the emotions and challenges they are facing as a result of living with fibromyalgia.

My name is Joseph Holmes. I am an experienced guest and as a result of hearing my story people are often moved to tears and become aware of their own angels and experience a new sense of hope, meaning, significance and joy in their lives. I am a survivor of childhood sexual trauma and a disabled (PTSD) combat veteran who, in 1991, went through a complete nervous breakdown resulting in the loss of my career and livelihood. I survived through the grace of God and my angels. I have a very simple message I believe will benefit your listening audience, as it has done for so many others. In 1991 my life turned upside down. A nervous breakdown followed by a period of deep depression ushered in my “dark night of the soul.” Over time I became aware of the angels around me, and my life with Mother Mary, and most notably Mary Magdalene (whom I affectionately call, “Maggie”) with her spiritual poetry Love Notes For Your Soul, began in earnest. It’s a spiritual story of “Angel Interventions” and transformation available to all of us.
