      Hi Herb,

      Can you please tell me exactly where you are looking. Is there a link you can attach or are you using the Oneplace player?

      Thank you,

    Hi, where are the archived radio shows? There was an archive button just below today’s audio show that I used to be able to click on and listen to the shows I missed during the week. That button is gone. This was as recent as a month ago. How do we listen to archived shows now?

    Thank you.

    Amanda, the caller with the 12 year old daughter that’s cutting, um, I know you’ve seen this child’s pain long before calling the show. I am grateful to God that you did call today and pray that you take heed to the advice and suggestions that was given. You are at fault for your daughters behaviors as well as the things that she’s been through. I know you have your own pain both past and present but you were fully aware of how to protect your daughter. I’m sorry but I cannot excuse you for not being the blame of what has happened to your daughter. You have left this child with strangers and men no doubt, that was a set up for these men to do whatever to your child, I just cannot excuse you on that. I will, however, pray for you and your daughter. She needs help to start healing her wounds and in the process your wounds will be healed as well. That poor child has been through much more than what you mentioned. I am working with a young girl who has been through some of the same things as you and your daughter though she’s 17 she has made much progress with support groups, therapy, prayers, and me. Please get help for your daughter, please help her and again, in the process watch how God heals your wounds. You DO NOT NEED A MAN to VALIDATE YOU, you need God and he’s already validated you and has given you all you need to start the healing process, I dare you to give him a try. Bless you and your daughter.
