Best Tips on How to Run With a Jogging Stroller

"So i got a jogging stroller. Brian got me one for mother's day so any would have been okay. Hang on math. And he was seven months old. When i got a jogging stroller. I have the tuli urban glide. I love it So there's a lot of an. I'm not an expert you all know that A lot of places will say wait until they're six months or wait until they have full head control. There are the car seat attachments you can use. But i'll just share what i did. Which is yeah started small and really stuck small. I think probably the furthest. I don't even know if any and i've ever run more than like a five k. Together in the jogger. She's never loved it. To be honest. I love it But i never wanted to force it honestly. I get really anxious and embarrassed if any cries while she's in the jogging stroller even though i know she's fine And i tend to her and get her what she needs but sometimes babies cry and toddlers. Cry but i always feel like oh my god. Someone's going to see me and just look at me and think like look at this woman who cares more about getting her workout in than her kid. And i'm like that's not it like that's not no like she was happy for the first two miles. She just wants to get out and we're going to. We're almost at the playground. We're almost home. But like how does it that i think that much about. What like a stranger passing by in a car is going to think of me when i know my own kid and know that she's fine more about to get out or to change her diaper. Whatever it is.

Motherhood: Yes, No, Maybe

"We just passed the holiday of mother's day. And that got me thinking about this topic of mother hood. Which i feel that. I am at a unique intersection to speak on the topic of because of my past present and future. So my past. I have a good relationship with my mother and my mother is still living so i am not at the place of grieving mother or at grieving a strained relationship with a mother. I have never been pregnant or tried to get pregnant. so i don't have any miscarriages or abortions in my past or You know natural infertility challenges and as you are aware if you have been a posner. An instagram friend. I've been on shore for many years. If i want to have a family very much on the fence. I think that as a couple now you're truly knowing who my life partner is and having gotten married a couple of years ago we are more likely yes but it's still something that we very much like. This is a huge undertaking. Are we sure that we want to embark down this road and were still a few years away from that. So we're not We are not presently trying to conceive or under the pressure of making this decision so it allows me to feel like i'm kind of able to stand at the center of a big circle of women who all have so many different experiences from their past own mother's as a as perhaps mother yourself of an older mother of now an adult child or even watching your own child. Now go through Infertility or pregnancy or motherhood or adoption or all of the things. And i have so because just with my season of life right now i have so many friends that are trying to conceive. I think also being in that spot where you know maybe in your early twenties not a lot of women in your life or in that maybe in your late forties a lot of women around you already been in that phase but it feels like something that is so present for so many women in my life right now and i know that we have a large demographic here of who also were older who are more. Perhaps my mother is a and i can only imagine that if i have this many friends that are going through this there are just as many women who have a child of their own going through it

"Gentleman. Abby heard what's going on in arizona tell us the d. j. doj the united states of america issued a mandate and a letter stating that arizona will cease and desist investigation of the trump voting act and voting happenings there in arizona because it was already decided election but they did give arizona a cease and desist on looking into the voting machines in arizona. Really so everything's us. It's coming to a stop. Yeah yeah they said that. That was not forthwith Then everything was already demonstrating that it was. There was no longer any credibility there with the voting machines that it was being taken care of now. Does that tell you anything. About what kind of government we have. Now that doesn't surprise me. Oj tells another state governor and that they will cease and desist on investigating and also with michigan and else they're getting the same type of temperament from the government they will cease and desist. What do you make of that gordon. Well i've i've heard him seen some news reports flying around here and there. About how the investigations in the recounts and the things that they've done have turned up. A i think one report i read said seven. One air report Seven there so if they had a total of ten votes three of them were for trump seven of them were for biden but the seven air comes in to where trump sorry two of them were trump seven of them were for eight of them were for biden seven and one air report says that seven of those votes seven of those aides were actually cast for trump where one was cash for biden in all eight of them were cast for biden. Say that rick yup. yeah now. They're saying it's seven to one ratio of miscalculated and arabia's votes and that's only in one state and that's yeah that's not including the others at set there and still are wanting to go ahead and investigate this but they're hitting blocks or hitting walls so to speak. I'm governmental basically. They're terminating any type of investigation. Telling it telling everybody that. Hey guess what it. There's no use of this. You know who really won. And he's an office right now so it the my question would turn around and be if we obviously know who won. And he's an office right now. Then what's the harm that well. That's what they've been saying. Yeah and again. They're setting their Backing each other through the us government and doj with the stamp of approval from the oce to cease and desist and when the doj this season desist. That pretty well locks down. What any kind of movement. They're going to be able to do anything political and or through any kind of legislative means or any kind of Way as far as the people themselves actually knowing the exact truth gentlemen. This is not the mirror humming the america that we're used to gentlemen noah rick. I mean gordon won't point in jiu we've finally call duck adopt. Here guys walks like a duck. Yeah move ricks right. When it comes to the government coming out and saying we need to have humanity we need to. We need to be on united front. They put these. Tv commercials out there primarily brandishing this flag for the for the vaccine but every time blm comes in wears their head and every time antifa comes up and raise their head and every time the democrats main touted as we need to be unified. We need to have unity. But everything they do is creating a larger and larger rift. This is making me. it's sickening. This country wasn't founded to be run. Like this it's like. I'm staring at a business. That's been going on for two hundred seventy years. And i'm looking at the books of this business and saying what in the fuck are you doing. And i'm talking to the to the board of directors. Put the fucker y'all doing. You're running this company into the ground. A company who cannot sustain a solid bottom line and do something to keep the majority of the employees happy and concentrate on keeping the majority of the minority of the people happy. They lose those good people because they go to other companies so what happens that company get ends up the bottom ends up falling out of it and that's where we're at. The bottom is falling out but see they are proud of that. That's what they want. They're proud of it but every vote. What is the game socialism communism. I'll know for a fact that neither one of those systems governmental systems work. We have seen them fall apart. Time and time again. When the communism fell in russia in the eighty s the wall in germany fell in the eighties. What do those countries as a whole. It's splintered them. Let me let me read you. A couple of differences here on some of the things that have been said and this is coming from. Barack obama says with or without congress. Oh i'm going to act on my own. I've got a pin. And i've got a phone. Lincoln said the people of the united states our rightful masters of both congress and the courts not to overthrow the constitution but to overthrow the men who prevent the constitution and avert yes. That is a different one right there. Here's my question. So was i was able to take a little Not a see us. But i had to go handle something. Quick so early the the recount in arizona. And everything going on. what is going to self. What does it. Gordon always says you know. Donald trump's not coming back right now is this. It's not happening. And i believe that too. I don't think that's going to happen. but you know they're continuing on with this recount now. It's in georgia in in. They're trying to do other states and everything else. What is gonna prove We already know there's voter fraud. We get that but what is this going to do. What is the.

"Why was obamacare. Created real quick healthcare institute the and shoved down our throats before we get into that emma rita nurses. He's a response says. Unfortunately i did not make it through nursing. School forgot to change my name on youtube. But i'm currently a blood collector and he will not take the vaccine and neither will. I won't either. What we keep saying is he is a he. Is he a female or is he a. Here's a guy. I can't really. It's hard for me to see the picture. So i can't really so i can't response in You know there's there's a lot of folks at just okay Now see okay. Yeah is he looks like a guy. Okay hey is he. So yeah he popped up on the screen now but You know man that kinda solidifies you know. I've heard a lot of medical professional saying they're not taking this thing Oughta folks in old folks on that nurses that work there saying. Hey man Forty fifty percent of the people that take the vaccine either the first shot or the second shot either in the dead or severely ill they have to be moved out and brought To a critical care in debt scares the shit out of me. And i know a bunch of people that worked out of taking it as their rugged. If you wanna take go forward go take as well right mercifully. I'm doing it right now. In the state of kansas are medical teams are medical professionals are bucking against our governor. Who by the way a democrat. That is trying to persuade people to be in conformity and unity. As i just mentioned but they're not doing it in fact right now at medical in our town and in other medical law and other facilities in kansas they are lifting the ma the mask mandate and for the first time. We've been able to go down and visit people without any repprt without any recurrence of saying. Hey you gotta have a mask or a they ask us at one. Time can show your card. The vaccine shots fall again again. I wanna revisit my question that i ask what. Government healthcare originally issued for so the reason it was issued. The obamacare was to make insurance cheaper for everybody. But the thing is if you didn't get on board with the the obamacare bullshit. You ended up paying a penalty on this stuff. And once you got on the obamacare you're in network with certain doctors like you might lose your doctor. But you'd have to go with the different network. Different network of doctors in doctors promise your democratic supporters. And they're the ones that support you know obamacare stuff right so everything played in full full circle. It went hand in hand. And if you didn't get on the guess what you were fine. You had to pay some kind of penalty or fine or something. I don't know. I didn't get on the bullshit that with me but i didn't pay shit either way you you screwed either way so you either got on his bullshit insurance or you paid a final nissen or you had private insurance from a different company. And you don't have to worry about but okay. Let me those guys win. That i come out. That was a pretrial dec- who and what they could do. As far as conformity and unity through the obama administration. I have a letter in my possession. I will bring it next time on aaron. Read it to you. But all of the native american tribes in the state of kansas was issued a number and a letter stating that we did not have to conform to the obama. Care insurance or anything that we were giving a pass. Now explain that to me. How does how does one ethnic group get a pass from another ethnic group administration and yet you as the american people get fined and you as the american people are told that you must conform to this. Were they look aryan nation. 'cause i love it a love. The term woke woke us. I don't know i'm away now. I don't know if i mean coonass that helps out. I don't know that means that. Apparently should i. Don't know i'm i'm i'm awake right now. Navan whoa granada bullshit for what it is a Calls me woke fucking But i see bullshit for what it is and i just call it out how i don't sugar anything. If somebody don't like it fuck you know. Here's here's an ideal. Here's my deal. Partly of the claim of government healthcare and obamacare was the staple that we are going to control what medical costs and a pharmaceutical costs yet. Catching so how could now. The government be turning around after they. So reverently forced this down our throats ten years ago. Now turn around and say you must get this vaccine regardless of what the pharmaceuticals cost is and let them make four hundred million dollar profit in the first quarter the.

We were talking about flowers for mom on Mother's day, but if you plan on maybe having a picnic or doing some outdoor activities, you may need to watch out for the 17-year cicadas, because this is the peak weekend for the skaters to come out of the ground near the 17-year. Cicadas are the big one. And again, like their name. Only come around every Seventeen years. I remember as a kid back when they came out in nineteen, seventy, where I was just fascinated by all these cicadas. I saw when we were living in Illinois, in nineteen-eighty-seven. I was living in North Carolina and didn't see as many because you just don't see as many cicadas in North Carolina as you do in the Mid-West or in the Southeast in 2004 know, I was living in Akron. I don't really remember. If the skaters were there or not, it wasn't paying attention. I was too busy working. It's kind of funny every Seventeen years. I'm in a different city in 20, 21 of them have been in Nashville and I've been here for almost fifteen years, I missed the skaters just by a couple of years. Last time, the cicadas are here and big time this weekend. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news for mother's day but it was not one thing. It's another isn't it off?

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. If you normally buy flowers for mom on Mother's Day, you may be in for quite a shock this year. Number one, choices are extremely high, you know, we can blame that on, right? Like they say prices are the highest they've been for around thirty years. But not only that, it's going to be tougher to find flowers this year. And that's too because of the pandemic. Took a lot of flower Growers, are small Independent Business. People, they weren't able to survive covid-19. They went out of business, but another reason there are fewer flowers, this year is kind of interesting. And that's because many flower Growers have sold their Faith Farms to marijuana farmer's or they've adapted their business from flowers to marijuana growing. The crops themselves this year have flowers are go to move from Mom's going to be tougher much like everything else. Tougher to find each year. I know I hate to be the bearer of bad news just the day before Mother's Day, but at least wanted you to be aware flour, prices up up up if you can find them.

It was in two thousand eight when the economy was melting down here in america we were really feeling a lot of restlessness at the time. So we sort of collectively decided as a family to take a big risk. We decided to get rid of all of our sort of consumerist lifestyle stuff and we took our young family to the ancient croatian mountain village of my ancestors in it was. It was a pretty amazing. Right how long did you stay in. Croatia trump. We were in the country itself for about seven months. The majority of that in the village itself is your husband croatian. Also he's norwegian alsacien but he sort of adopted my ancestors for the time we were in the village. It was really like hitting the reset button for our family. They're in what way. Well jim and i have a fairly modest lifestyle here in the midwest but even a family like us sort of in our american culture tends to super size everything and we were just ready to kind of get away from the american buzz and we went back to the most basic way of living. We were living in a small pen sione in this very small village that felt like it was suspended in amber since my great grandparents left and it really gave us the time and space to connect as a family we wanted less business in our world and we thought there can be no better way of doing that than going to a place where there was really nothing going on We had heard a few things about mirka pie research and a scouting trip and indeed. It was sort of this quiet time outland. It felt like to us

I assume four for opposing apartheid for doing some kind of dissenting action. Yes well the sensing action was being with a white person. Who was the white person your father. The s he was jailed so no no no. no white. people didn't get jailed for that. That was Why people were warned not to do it again. But then if you're a black person called fraternizing across country boundaries. Then then you'd be arrested but my mom. My mom opposed the system as a whole so. She never let that stand in her way.

Oh wow might have been. We're all experiencing the for the first time we go see this broadway show i lines so yeah. That was wonderful. So yes whenever. I hear the song one. Of course i take my mom and that's nice trying to dance. I no not at all. Yeah never took formal lessons. No i'm just naturally gifted. We're going to post a video. You dancing no not at all not at all. You never know when. I may catch you. Well that's in the act. Yeah exactly all right. Where're you got. okay. I'm doing a two for one. Okay go ahead with the band. That both stephen i have imparted on our children and they actually do left the spanned live. The band is called live live. Yes and it's funny. I spoke to him. Because i did speak to both my kids when we decided to do this episode and i was talking to them about the songs that it was going to use and actually handsome gave him a little input with their reasons. You know so. They both love the album throwing copper which is more than twenty years old now but they both liked. They liked two different songs from it chelsea picked all over you do you know. Are you familiar with the ban life. I mean these are both hands. Oh that's the yeah yes. It's not selling the drama. That was there. I i do remember that song of the goodman. It's agree there button. I mean they're another flawless album. Yes and sam would. She's lightning crashes which assure you now yes. Both of those were single so i. I don't know. I'm not that familiar with the the complete album but those are. I thought you might like the album. This this to me is another fly. A crash is really isn't a good mother's day song. No but you know most people think they know what the song's about sorry pointing pleased to enlighten me. So they dedicated to this one of their high school. Friends was killed by a drunk driver around the time the song was written so they didn't read it about her but these dedicated to her. The lyrics are mostly an analogy so she donated several organs including her heart. So so it looks like when you're when you're watching the video and when you're listening to the song that is speaking about the circle of life you know That is how it is to me. But this you know after i guess the song took on new meaning because it specifically about how barbs life gave new life to a lot of people the angel the baby down the hall. The pale blue eyes. Barb had blue eyes the pain and the confusion these. The lyrics are wholly ed's interpretation.

Cocktails for Mom, or Anyone Who Could Use a Drink

"What are the characteristics of a good mother's day cocktail simplicity. Definitely you know. You don't want to overwhelm yourself with preparation or having fines. Specific ingredients and honestly. Simplicity is the way to go with the cocktails in general and marketing. But you basically need a balance. So you're going to need. You know obviously alcoholic element or i mean even. If you're doing a macho it's still kind filing the same logic where you're gonna need to balance a base which in alcohol drinks alcohol and then you're going to need citrus generally and maybe a sweet element to balance that out for most tales. I mean you know. There's obviously a lot of different directions. You can go but you know if you can balance your spirit or alcohol in drink with a sweetening agent and something citrus. Maybe you little sharper kinda rounded out. That is the ideal drink. And so whether it's lime juice lemon juice grapefruit wine gin. There's a balance that needs to be had for something to taste good so that's really what i'm after. As far as drinks go in general but for the perfect mothers day cocktail regarding that balance. I would say something that looks pretty to the celebration of your mom just like getting bouquet of flowers. You know you drink with your eyes. I sued one visually. I would say color contrast fresh ingredients. You know it's fruit or herbs and if you've got some nice glassware that's a bonus to you know it's a complete package.

Roosevelt sensing a pr win even does an initial sketch of the stamp himself and the materials that go along with the stamp give frank hering credit for inventing the day. The stand project is a huge boost for hearings reputation and for the american war mothers. it's a fundraising success and over the coming.

According to a contemporary newspaper account that includes a national floral organization which contributes fifteen hundred dollars as a belated act of gratitude in nineteen forty. Eight and obituary is published in papers across the country. Anna jarvis lonely spinster who founded mother's day and then fought in vain against its commercialization died today at eighty. Four blind and penniless. Her battle against the commercial interests was a losing one. But while jarvis lost her battle against the mother's day profiteers it is in many ways her vision of motherhood that we celebrate today. If that sentimental child like celebration of motherhood is what's being marketed. You i still have carnation that my oldest now. Twenty three made when he was probably in kindergarten. I wear that thing every mother's day all right. It's all children saying how much i love my mother. It makes sense.

Singleness: Burden and Gift

"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.

How to Make More Money With the Team You Have

"Whether you're a team of one or team of one hundred there are certain tasks you can do to bring in more cash and in today's episode. I'm gonna put on my frugal hat on. I wanna make sure we squeeze as much money out of the current team you already have. Spending money is not the answer first. Let's maximize what we can do with who we have once we do that. We want to take things to the next level. Then we can consider bring on somebody else on our team but we need a maximize who we have right now and you'll be surprised. How much output. How much benefit how. Much money you can generally in new sales. You just realign certain tasks for your team members no matter what department during before we get into the nitty gritty details. Let's discuss what are the ways we can bring in money will really. There are three ways to make sure we make more money in our business to bring in more revenue. The obvious one is just more customers. More people buying your products or services. That's number one now. A lotta people. Just stop here. They're like just more customers. Well there are other ways. Money number to each customer spends more money so instead of each customer spending fifty dollars Each customer spent one hundred dollars. You just doubled your revenue cages double. How much money you make without even bring in new customers. This is often called lifetime value. Now i want to explain this one before we move on so yes you can bring in more customers number one number two. Each customer spends more doesn't necessarily mean they spend more when they first by they can buy one product but then they come back and buy another or they upgrade their plan or they have an ad on attitude their plan or they go from Your membership to your private coaching point. Here's at the same. Customer is paying you more money and lastly is retention is keeping your customers now if you have a software company like sas business where people pay you every single month for membership or you have a community like ecorse course community where people learn from you every month or you have monthly. Coaching any reoccurring model. This is essential. Okay you need to make sure you keep your customers. Even if they're not spending more by keeping your customers you basically plug any leaks in a bucket right. There's no sense in bring in or working so hard on marketing to bring more customers. If just as many leave you okay keeping customers actually a lot less expensive than bringing in a new customer. Now save for example. You an ecommerce store. You're in retail. And you might be well. I don't have a membership model. Omar people buy from me and then they leave. Well that's okay but you need to make sure they continue to buy from you. You have to see this as a membership model if somebody has bought something from your ecommerce sore And they haven't bought from you in months. That's a problem. You need to find ways to re engage with them. Give him reasons. Give him purposes to buy your products. Yes maybe they bought for themselves. But hey there's a holiday pretty much every single month. Have you bought something for your mother for mother's day one about fathers day. What about birthdays christmas. Valentine's day i can go on and on but the point is is that people buy things for other people not just for themselves make it so it is sort of a subscription model to get them to come back and keep buying. That's a reoccurring customer and if you have great quality products they will love you for the gift ideas all right so these are the ways people can make more money. So how am. I gonna tap into my team to do that. Well everybody on. Your team has a job already right. They have duties. All you have to do is refocus. Those do these to apply to one of those three things. So i'm gonna give you some examples. Let's say you have somebody who's doing customer support. They're not selling. They're not bringing any new customers but they deal with the customers that they already have the ones that are asking support questions or asking questions about products or sizing or whatever. It is if you want retention. If won't people coming back. You won't be able to keep paying you. These people are your soldiers okay. These people are going to help you big time your support team. If you have a sale going on you've ever promotion going on. They should close off all conversations with a reminder of that if there's a better way for them to save the customer money i know. This sounds out counterintuitive but you can save the customer money varroa wrong plan for some reason or they're spending their money on the wrong things by giving the customer advice. Hey you can actually do better on an annual plan versus your monthly plan. You could save up to one hundred and fifty dollars by going annual. I noticed you've been with us for a year already. The customer gets locked in you get upfront cash flow and the customer really appreciates you looking out for them so get your support team to actively keep your customers happy and can keep them Retained and continuing to pay you now. This isn't happened by accident. it's obviously takes training. But if you allow the metrics that they're measured against to be aligned with this this is what's going to work so when you're evaluating your customer support team make this one of the things are evaluated on retention. How many customers they save. How many customers do the upgrade the hits her milestones. You can give them a bonus you can give them a raise whatever it is incentivize them because at the end of the day people need a carrot.

Engaged whilst using innovative creative techniques and technology to promote your business and products. keep listening. I've got you covered boone.

Receive four times higher. Click through rates compared to average at as well as twenty eight percent higher engagement rate compared to standard company posts content is created by customers using filters that brands create on snapchat or instagram stories through tiktok videos or even to instagram orioles with the use of tagging and hashtags one of my favorite examples of a brand utilizing user generated content is by the iconic which made its mother's day campaign featuring images and footage of real mothers at home in lockdown struggling with home schooling crying children and so much more. What i love about this campaign is how it is not only unedited. Unfolded user generated content but that it is using this content to remind others. Today are not alone that there are so many people going through the same struggles as they do each day. User generated content is predicted to only saw in twenty twenty one with the use of tiktok. Instagram rails live stories are more. There are so many options for influences to create attention grabbing content. That is relatable fun to watch and so incredibly convincing it has water mouth marketing in a virtual space where word spreads faster than in the real world after all nothing says trust like content created by someone. You completely relate to an empathize with on social media number two in game advertising last march nintendo released animal crossing new horizons and it sold more than thirteen point. Four one million copies in just six weeks if you onshore. Why so many were sold. Some external research about now is advised if you are up to date as you or your son daughter niece nephew cousin parent or even dog plays this game. Twenty four hours a day. Then you can understand the hype about this game now. What is even more fascinating about. This game is what some browns have done by partnering with animal crossing for example marc jacobs release their own virtual collection online allowing users to dress avatar in the luxury clothes of the brand off so they entered a unique code. Only six of their favourite pieces were presented as they are a luxury designer brand off audible but one brown took this partnership to a whole new level. The branded gem oh in france in partnership with the agency caused beef decided that as physical shops are shocked. Why don't they opened a shop in a video game and that is exactly what they did. Their brand or ready to wear clothing was a hit in the animal. Crossing game as these types of clothes are exactly what people were buying obsessively during lockdown comfortable affordable and cozy. The video game was advertising in itself. And if you look on the blog of this article you will see the clothes referred directly to real pieces in real life role who wouldn't want a virtual shopping experience in their favorite video game. If you check out the blog page you'll see some images of the close in real life transported directly to avatars in the video game. This type of advertising is predicted only to rise in twenty twenty one number three product placement. This is thought to be the oldest trick in the book but we predict that. This trend has only just begun from stranger things to suits right down to friends. They're sneaky ways that bronze managed to incorporate their products into popular tv shows and movies. While sixty eight percent of product. Placements lasts for five seconds or less product placement is the largest in foster scoring market in the us generating billions of dollars in revenue which will only grow in twenty twenty one. The next time you sit down to watch your favorite netflix. Show look out for the cleverly place logos of brands to catch your is subconsciously. This is a multibillion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in two thousand and twenty one for example. If you check out the blog page you will see that in a snapshot from the show stranger things. The logo of burger king could not have been less subtly placed in the image however other times the product or logo is so subtly placed that you might not even notice it the first time round. This is a multi billion dollar market in the advertising industry and it will expand to new heights in twenty twenty one number four nostalgia marketing the world. We live in is not only fast paced but driven strongly by looking towards the future. I also don't need to remind you of the struggles that our planet went through last year from the loss of loved ones due to covid nineteen the loss of houses due to bush fires. The loss of black lives in a fight for equality and so much else. I also can't put into words. The pain that some of us have felt during this year therefore we believe that nostalgia marketing will be boosted to new heights in twenty twenty one studies have shown then style gives our lives a sense of meaning and continuity there by having a positive effect on on mental wellbeing. It brings us a sense of happiness amid chaos and reminds people happier and simpler time thereby encouraging you to buy the product to remind you of all the happy memories nyc pepsi gucci. A mountain jew are a few brands that adopted such a strategy of marketing. And they use this. During twenty twenty. Whilst the wild was trying to navigate itself through unpredictable and unprecedented times for example cheetos included nostalgia marketing in that twenty twenty super bowl advert by introducing cheetos popcorn the advert featured the nostalgic feeling of eating a bag of cheetos up finishing with bright orange fingers. This is something that so many people who are watching the super bowl could relate to as they remember being in the yummy and messy situation when they were younger. We can therefore expect to see some blasts from the past appearing soon on your screens as brands triton transport. You back to the past with some old time favorites. This type of marketing is certainly not new. But walk goes around certainly comes back around and it seems like twenty twenty is where people can use a boost of happiness and a sense of nostalgia number five brand activism purpose driven advertising. We saved the best to lost. Twenty twenty was a year of so many surprises and filled to the brim with certainty and fair for the future.

Now you're an the organization in new change and you put that stuff on your face and you come around us. We're GONNA take it off well from what I understand. Two of them were cut off guys in the county jail. They were sent out to the streets. Aw what was sent out do what do you mean they cut it off these guys face and they sent to the streets dinner brothers. Brian spent years in prison building up the Simon city royals gay. He says he built alliances between the gangs to protect his brothers. Everything again. In a sense he destroyed during the two years at Tj was unleashing chaos on the west side there are at least nineteen teams shootings and four murders allegedly tied to his crew. Families were ripped apart. Brian believes TJ's responsible. I mean I drive over to my Chicago. I see how bad it is. There was nothing and you went into made it worse. Kick a hurting horse you. You stomped on the horse when it was dead and just dried owns you grounded into the ground. Why you want meat? Hell in Hell what he did to them. People on the West is discussing what he did to his mother. Family discussing what he did to a so-called brothers is discuss. It's hard to quantify exactly how much damage TJ did to that west side neighborhood. There isn't any direct evidence I know of the ties. TJ himself to any particular shooting there but Tj Shot Earl Casteel. It's on video the victim who was shot by Tadeusz. They ask him as earl. Casteel has sued Jimenez Cook. County court awarded Casteel a six point three million dollar award but Casteel is as lawyer working to determine it him and has any assets left's when Earle's lawyers looked at TJ's finances. There were unpleasantly surprised. There was nothing there but they did find the had signed over a house to his ex girlfriend. They're trying to get that asset for earl. What do you think about these guys going in your house fair because this got nothing to do with what happened with daddy is this? Is Abby Beppu the owner of the house she's TJ's ex girlfriend and mother of his two children. I spoke to her for a couple of minutes. Outside of a court hearing for earls lawsuit. It's not a great recording. But if you're looking for collateral damage here it it is. I'm a single mom and this house is for the kids in me when I need to look somewhere. You know. It's hard to live right now. Andre what you've been kind of trapped in this nightmare with relationship with Tj over the ASS. It's been a nightmare for a past four years it was good. I'm firms those perfect but that wants the money came everything change and then after he shot earl. It's been worse. He gave us the house because he didn't want him to be homeless again house with the kids. Now they're trying to take the house. This is his child support. They don't pay Charleston for either. You don't even seem that is jail. Since he's been locked up no never want to see the reason is because I don't I don't want my kids and I don't want them to know it's okay for them to go. There still love him. Of course I love him. He's like his father but I would never get back with him some. TJ's kids man. Man Star is Vicky calls them with Abby. They're really cute. This kind of seeing each other real casteel you know. I understand that she has children. I'm not trying trying to disrespect her. I'm not trying to disrespect her children or anything like that but at the same time you gotta understand. I have a wife and seven children that I have take care of. You know him being sued. He's trying to hide things and stuff like that. We're going to dig it up and we're GONNA take what we're going to take get a chance to break his pockets. Why or not you know you? You shot me. Hey it's not just the individuals around TJ who've been damage is Tj. Story Somehow. Hurt the stories of other convictions. Yes you turn got. TJ has twenty five million dollar award. John John Loney. There is a dynamic right now where wrongful convictions are being overturned more than in the past. The system should be able to apologize. It should be more restorative justice. This should be more acknowledgement but there are people who are very vested in the premise that the system never makes mistakes. That if you're convicted you're guilty. Lobby says it has given those critics ammunition when TJ screwed up the way he screwed up. He didn't do any favors to his brothers and sisters who are in prison fighting To prove that they should be given a second chance because they didn't do anything wrong. WHO's responsible responsible? TJ primarily is responsible. We are all responsible for our own choices in. TJ made bad choices if we're looking to cast blame there's enough off blame to go around. You know this is a system that put him in prison at age. Thirteen thirteen you going to criminal justice system at age twenty two you already got values values. You already got a foundation. You are a person. You've been through life experiences you're going to go through a Lotta Hell but that hell's going to interact with who you are if you're thirteen. There's no foundation nation. So he became. The system teaches priest when he was in juvenile detention. Father Dave Kelly main lesson. TJ Stories is. There's a lot of culpability that we own. We participated in doing this young man serious serious damage society and then we give him twenty five million dollars. Expect him to. Everything's GonNa be good. He's GONNA use that money to build up the community. How silly.

"The letter is kind of manifesto for TJ's remaining crew members at on the streets and it's revealing TJ seems obsessed with loyalty. We are on top and nobody can deny that but a lot of you don't deserve to share that glory in my eyes. You're never really royals to begin with you. Never had love for me or the guys you never really were about this. Royal Life Imposters. That's all you ever were. That's all you'll ever be. TJ seems to be aware that some of the guys who flipped to his gang only only did it because of the money also seems that despite being in jail td's not giving up on his gang fantasy despite the government's efforts to keep me in here and stopped the Royal Blue Wave. We created across this city. Our time is not up. This is only the beginning if you love me and you're sincere about your dedication to our family. Don't be distracted by all the bullshit. Remember everything I taught you. Remember the bonds we built together. We are the only real family out there. No one else will ever be like us. Nobody will ever do the things we did. Remember that too. We did the impossible and we did it together with one heart and mind. I love all my loyal royals and will gladly give up my life and my freedom for you Roy love till the end. Dj's been sitting in jail for four years since that blue crown announcement but not not too long ago. I got some insight in TJ thinking right now. I submitted a freedom of information request to the sheriff's Office. And I got this. Hello this is a prepaid collect call from an inmate at the Cook County Department of Corrections Chicago Illinois. Neil this is a recorded phone call between TJ in jail in. His current girlfriend may start the conversation now orbit on the call. There's some talk about TJ supposedly writing a book. His girlfriend said she sent him a three hundred page. Paperback about Al Capone. TJ's worried it might get lost Austin mail system. Maybe this Cook County puppet. They ain't GonNa go to Buddha work to senator visiting on donor month away keep it. This is not a piece of TJ. Gee Marketing himself in the phone call. Td seems to be speaking honestly about a situation. The way the way they feel like winfield believes in Cook County sheriff's everybody in the the judges and everybody they feel like I got away with murder. It's now almost a quarter century since teacher was arrested for murder when he was a kid. But it's clear from the recording. That still always heavily on his mind. They did the modern. I should've stayed in jail. Did this is not a look at it. But these league talk inexpensive as SCIFIS lawyers ears fanego my way Outta here for me. Got Me out of here on bullshit and witnesses every candidate. We're just crazy or scared. Or whatever and they shouldn't recanted and I should have still been in jail for the murder. That's what they all think. So that's why they're treating me to try to me like fuck. You thought you got away but we got you now. That's how they look at it. I don't believe Tj sees himself as the ultimate victim. He's still very bitter. But then also in the recordings we can hear. TJ EJ threatening violence. Did you wants to be moved to a different part of Cook County jail and he sees a way of making that happen make the movie. I'm small Rodney. Talk News is sponsored by the right name. Plus they knows open. They don't come to me out of here. There might be a CEO no saying he seals. The Dick Kissed feels because they'd be fucking inmates up too so back and forth. TJ saying he's GonNA attack a correctional officer to get moved sheriff's. Investigators were listening to this call when they heard that threat. They punish TJ with three weeks and segregation on the disciplinary report TJ. Explain himself by saying quote. I was blowing off steam. TJ grew up in the prison system and he understands how to get what he wants. He sees himself as the gang kingpin not to be messed with. He's all about respect and loyalty. He's concerned with his legacy. Even now he still feels victimized teaches. Mom becky spent decades senior son is a victim. But of course there's there's no denying the TJ shot Earl Casteel. He did it. I can't do nothing. All I can do is be there for him and love them. All that's left for Vicki is to counter blessings and once again wait for Tj to come home good family and he should be grateful for that good scissors a lot of good friends..
