    I love your show and have learned so much. However, I take issue with the feedback Sheree (sorry if I mispelled your name) gave to the very last caller today whose voice sounded African American. As an African American female, his voice in no way sounded intimidating or scary. In fact, I was shocked that she viewed his voice as scary! It probably doesn’t scare his wife either (if she is African American) as he said. African American men’s voices are typically deeper than their white counterparts. We are accustomed to their pitch because of our fathers, brothers, uncles, etc. That doesnot mean that there are not AA men whose voices are quite intimidating, but his was not one of them!

      I think most African American men are brought up to come on strong, and yes it really comes out in their voice. It’s good for public speaking but overbearing for relationships. Although I find the sound attractive, for an intimate or relational setting it can sound self centered and not very sensitive to the person on the other end.

        I must agree. As an African American female I did not find his voice to be intimidating or overbearng. It sounded like to me he was just concerned about his marriage and trying to figure out the best way to handle their situation. I’m not sure what in his voice or tone gave Sherri that opinion, but from my perspective and interaction with AA men, he was definitely not intimidating.

        Thanks for all you do,

    I really appreciated the counsel Stephen gave to the first caller. His words are just like true freedom that makes so much sense.

    Someone has to make Sherri understand that her sexy kitten voice is totally inappropriate. While it’s appropriate to show compassion, she should be careful not to sound like an employee at the Gentleman’s Club. Did anyone hear that guy’s voice everytime she chimed in? I could hear it…he was right back at the Gentleman’s Club. I can’t believe she does that and no one has corrected her. Every woman has a sexy voice but it should be saved for the appropriate time and place.

    Thank you Sherri for your kind compassionate way of interacting with callers. You have been an asset to New Life.

    Still hoping you put your workshops you are doing now on CD’s for those who can’t attend in person.
