You need an advanced degree. So i ended up going to saint thomas university. I got my mba down. In miami florida in sports administration from there i ended up telling to st john's catholic croats neither assistant athletic director.

I would probably be shaking my head like you were going. I can't believe they're doing this she you have to take care of yourself. I am not include sear financial wellbeing and if you don't. then. The whole concept of launching your own business to get your own financial freedom or destroy income ends of being a burden where. You've actually increased GERBILS and you're working fulltime. You're doing this job on the side and you have more bills than you did before. So you're actually making less than you're working longer hours and you're going one of my doing wrong. Well, you went in too fast too quickly and you need to scale at a lot slower. It's GonNa, take longer than you wanted to, but you have to. He going back to that conversation. I had earlier today What was the Tach, what you WANNA do out of this and map out in. You talk with people that have done it already Find Mentors and be. Really open to your have to say because it may not be what you want here because people launch businesses they think I'm at the of bazillionaire you might you might be, but it doesn't happen overnight. Amazon did not grow to what it is today overnight. It's taken decades same thing with facebook and apple was in deep trouble another two trillion dollar organization but it takes time and a lot of other things have to play into parts so. New was enclosing Thursday one piece of advice you'd give to entrepreneurs and guessing shiny object is one of but is there anything else you would tell them to really focus on when they're launching business? Yeah the Shiny Object Syndrome avoiding that if you can. And then also the implementing be for every hour that you. Spend learnings, but another hour implementing. Let's see in I guess nor this kind of goes with Shiny Object Syndrome, but at a certain point narrowing in on one thing I think that was my biggest issue for several years is just Kind of juggling a bunch of things and running multiple businesses at the same time. I guess just seeing which one sticks I guess Sir which one I liked the most and I think that's okay for a while but a certain point. If you find something that you really enjoy that sticking that you're doing well at that's generating some kind of income that you know as affordable to do. I would focus on that so. Yeah. Zeroing in. That's perfect. In Great Advice every entrepreneur no matter if they're in year one or your ten of their business focusing focused on the one thing that you can do better than everybody else. Do that you'll be you'll be good. Your Business will grow..

"Well you were talking about or the question that you asked reminds me of there's this new show on TV called I quit. It's only had two episode so far and it's about. Entrepreneurs who they work a regular day job. And then. Trying to launch a business on the side certain point, they get to the point where they quit their day job and go all in on their. Their business. And some of these. Like. This one couple bought a soccer team or something like that or a soccer club, and this is an America where soccer isn't really that big I mean little kids play soccer you know but. I don't know of any kind of like professional. Soccer team in America I mean, maybe I'm wrong but It's just not really a big thing here I don't think and. Yeah, it's a soccer club I think whatever that means I don't know. and. They're not they're. Not paying their mortgage, they're using the money that they would have paid for their mortgage to like. Can keep funding this thing and anyway so. What I see their story because it's a bunch of different people on the show different stories but that went in particular I'm just like. A, really? It I don't know. That's just my opinion on that but. I? Yeah. People can. Definitely. I mean when you're paying your mortgage and when you're. There's just so many mistakes that people make when they're launching a business you don't need to. Drop thousands. Of Dollars and Just start small with a bare minimum and I think with online business. That's easy to do whereas if you're trying to open a brick and mortar retail shop or something that's kind of a whole different. Thing and so. That's why I focus on online. Line is a much. Safer place as long as you're keeping yourself in checking in voiding the Shiny Object Sen. yes. There is a professional soccer league a few in the US majoring sought major league soccer's one of them. They've got teams in some of the larger cities the and it's gotten a following nowhere near to what it is in Europe and other seat countries in that and it's it's those things where it's taken a long time for to catch on in the United States. Olympics it tends to be a little bit more traction but for some reason, it's never caught on I think part of it is not. Derail our chat but I think because the other major sports that we have in the United States are so gigantic NFL, baseball basketball even hockey is is definitely fourth in that in that scheme and and I I've lived in three of the original six NHL city. So it pains me to say that sometimes I get it I understand but. It's one of those things for A. When you buy team, you should be able by team when your financial house is literally in order if you're not making mortgage payments to bankroll something else.

But yet she she identifies struggling with China because there's so many great things out there it in a talked about people that burn out and. Often Times what happens with people that burn out as they take on too many things. They're the place to full of opportunities in thrall. Great things it's not like vomited. Say I'M GONNA spend sixteen hours a day watching, Netflix. So then I'm going to allocate ten hours a day for doing this and I'm GonNa spend this many hours on next boxer. No these are all great things vicious. They're a business owner there GONNA do this and this and this. You select funnel stomach did any star going all these things like, okay. You've soft launch all of these things but nothing is finished you just kind of dilemma but here little bit little is just pick something. Finish it. See what happens John Maxwell wrote a book sometimes you win sometimes you'll learn and many businesses have not been successful for a variety of reasons, but you still can learn from those experiences in my career path has been. Very diverse is far as the skills that I picked up over my career and it worked in dynamically different industries sending amicably different levels but I use the tools and expertise picked up with all of those in my daily life and the work that I do. Now if you ask me, okay, where did you learn how to do that I may or may not be we'll tell you because it's just part of my DNA. But seat a lot with entrepreneurs. The tried different things until they find something that Lance I've got a cousin that. is done that in. Trying to kinds of different businesses and whatnot and then. He found a business was really close to a passion that he's had his entire life and I'm not going to share his name or his clientele but it's music industry and the names of his clients are well-known say the lease and that was something that he landed up. But. Kept try and he found something and it's been really good for him and I'm proud of him I. Don't think he listened to my show but I know his mom doesn't my aunt so.

"Is content creation thing gets you out there as a thought leader in whatever you WanNa talk about and we seen the industry explode. Yes. It helps that you believe Joe Rogan and Tim Ferriss making some significant point from sponsorships and things like that. But. You can still. Put out show in. You can get some monetization opportunities, monetization opportunities in other areas because. You have podcast show. And? Yes. There is a a ton of shows being launched every weekend and whatnot. But I, I don't know the statistics are still the same because this is something that door to Clark shared with me an interview we did while back. was the majority of podcast shows die after about twelve episodes these people? Don I don't feel like doing the same or. So usual my show and a lot of shows that out there that have a lot more shows the net. The realize this. WanNa, do this. It's important. You thought I was going to. Be Done and then you realize way actually like this. So congratulations on continuing through obviously. You're one of the many that once they want to show the. Launch another one. Not The anything better to do but I'm serious if you saw a need and now you're creating content for that. So congratulations on that so. Stipend a little bit onto the frugal side of things for entrepreneurs, and again, we can bounce back and forth between the podcast things in small businesses and startups and whatnot. Look. What are some common mistakes you people make when they're just starting often they want to launch their business or something you see time and time again. Well. One thing that I have struggled with. Is that I spent so much time learning. And not implementing So recently adopted this concept. For every hour that I spent learning spin another hour implementing. and. So and it's important to learn whether it's by podcasts or books or. Courses. But a certain point you need to Sir doing what you're learning or otherwise what's the point? And so I would say that's definitely one and I think a lot of people struggle with that. Another is maybe shiny objects syndrome, which I've had before where you you're constantly getting ideas I, think that's how entrepreneurs are our brains work is that yours always thinking oh, that's a good idea and that's a good idea I should try that and I've done that and I think it's okay to test different things out if it's not expensive to do so. But a certain point. You got to. Zero in on something. And I've tried a bunch of different things and. You know like the photography business, I had a online travel agency. I did the drop shipping, all these different things, and but the whole podcasting. Industry whether it's the podcast itself the book, the course whatever. That's where I'm zeroing in on, but it took me. You know a decade. To get there because I, think. As. You. Go through the process you. Launch different businesses and whatnot at least that was my experience. And then. move onto something else I think you learn something along the way and you can take that into the next business and the next one. So you know people might think it's a failure if your business doesn't succeed or. You decide you don't really WanNa do that after all and so you move onto something but I think you can still learn from the experience and whatnot and. Sometimes you have to try to. Ten different things before you find the thing that you're. Meant to stick with. So yeah, I.

And in the process of doing that, I was always like looking for free or affordable tools to manage my business. And I was thinking. I've I've. Discovered so many free or affordable tools echo can write a book on this. So I got the idea to write a book the name. Frugal. Poor. It's also the name of the book came from I, was in a Dave, Ramsey financial peace class. And He was talking about all these ways to save money and pay down debt and all that. And I was thinking well, that's great. But what about? Making more money you know to save and pay down debt. And for some reason, the word Fergal preneurs came to my mind and I was like So. I wrote the book for Oprah Newer and then I was like I should start a podcast to coincide with the book. it was just kind of a short term plan.

He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease (John 3:30)
"John Chapter Three Verse Thirty He must increase. But I must decrease. Seven. Simple. Really. Hard words. To pray here's what I mean by that. I was younger. man who had a huge impact on my life spiritually. He challenged me to identify a verse in the Bible that would be your life verse I could sum up one verse that you want to describe your life. What would it be? I few can identify one verse the You want to mark your life. What would it be? And this, this is the verse that I chose. John Three thirty, he must increase but I must decrease. St. John. The Baptist talking about Jesus. Saying, his purpose in this world. is to decrease. That's what he must do. and Jesus must increase meaning John the Baptist purpose in this world was to exalt. Christ. Not Himself. And I say those are like simple but. because. This verse. Well. I it as my life verse I. Feel like. So often it's just been A. Constant Wrestling and struggling in me like I. Think I really do want Jesus increase as best as I can tell him my art like I want to Exalt. Jesus. What does see Jesus exalted. The struggle is. I can so easily turn this prayer into. He must increase in. I wouldn't mind kind of increasing as well. Like to really say no, I WANNA decrease I want to decrease I wanna be totally forgotton. I don't want anybody even think about me like. I'm just being honest here I oftentimes. Want people to think well of me. I. Struggle when people don't think well of me and it's It's a constant battle to say. No I don't I don't WanNa care about what people think about me I want to live so that people don't think about me at all I, WanNa live to the people think about Jesus I want John. Three thirty to be my life I and pray continually for it to mark my life, and yet there's this constant struggling to live dead to myself on a daily basis. So God, I pray for my own life that you would make this verse more and more and more a reality. This verse would indeed Mark Me. Jesus you would become greater through my life and I become less like less and less and less and less every way in my own highs and other people's is less in Jesus you. Become greater increasing. The same over those who are listening right now, don't know what life I they might have. Even ever thought about that. But gotta pray pray that you would increase through their lives that your glory would be made known that your love would be known. Your name would be made known and their names have become less less and less and less less and less about them more and more about you gotTa pray this for US less and less about us more and more about you because you're the only one who's worthy of glory you're the only one whose name ultimately matters. You're the only one who can. Save your the only one who is Lord and King overall like the think that in light of who you are, I would ever desire people to think well, it makes no sense. You're the only one who is worthy of all worship and all praise. All adoration. So God. We pray you'd help us to live with the constant refrain in our minds and our hearts he must increase, but I must decrease he must increase but I must decrease Oh God man is mark my our lives you increasing and US decreasing. In Jesus name, for Jesus, glory for his increase we pray.

We drove from Georgia to Washington state, and we got to finish filming schoolhouse rocked with Heidi and her family, and it was it was just an amazing time. We're there for about two and a half weeks and God is just doing some amazing things through Heidi and her family there in. Washington. Through their pumps go resource center her Ministry of MOMS strong International I mean you've got so many things going on Haiti. But before we get into that very quickly introduce yourself for those who don't know who you are introduce yourself and your family to us. So Jane, I have been married for thirty years and homes going for. Over twenty years and we have seven children and. Two. Grandkids on the way. And and we're just passionate. We run the Homeschool Resource Center here. I've been speaking a lot of you know me from speaking and riding I've been out on homeschool circuit for probably almost fifteen years just working with parents in trying to remind them of why we do what we do so to me. There I I totally agree with my friend Mike Smith I think that homeschool moms are kind of modern-day heroes in the culture right now just willing to say hey. Whatever it is that you are facing. A job struggles we got it's so easy to have a school bus come and take your kids and really these homeschool mantra during the harder they're doing a harder thing and I, think we're seeing tremendous route from it so. Yeah so I just I love home school families in Janai I mean right now the biggest thing we've got going on. For, sure is here in Washington State, we've opened the nation's first time homeschool resource center, and we had over a thousand registrations is also. And we're trying to help people pull their kids out of school. Yeah. So we're doing that's what we're going to talk about today. You are a popular speaker I. Know I know people are constantly fighting for you to get you to their homeschool conventions and it's an exciting thing to have. that. Oh I do. And you talk about marriage family cultural issues, and one of the things that I love about you Heidi is that you're not afraid to speak the truth and you're not afraid to speak about things that are going on in the culture and things that are going on in the public school system and for so long I know you felt the same way that I did where we'd Kinda shied away from well. Schooling is good for US knits rate for our family. But if you WANNA, have your child in public school. That's okay. We're we're going to not touch that and and and what's good for you is fine. You have really come on the other side of it along with Garrett, tonight and that we have seen a tremendous. Crash of morals and values and the decay of of the family, and that's being taught as truth and the public school system, and so today today's focus for this event is really a firm foundation and so one of the things I. Really WanNa Talk With you about today. Heidi is really setting that firm foundation and as we have gone through the past three years of filming this documentary schoolhouse rocked. We have the thing I think that I have come back to the most is that homeschool parents need to know their why they need to know why they're homeschooling because if you don't know why you're going in, you don't have a real purpose for it. If you're just running because you're scared of something and you don't really have a purpose for doing what you're doing, it's going to be easy to give up. and. So I want to talk about what they need to give up even when. It's true. I mean. Honest even when you know why you're doing what you're doing. Home schooling is difficult and so I don't like I'm not a fan of people who say Oh home school your kids it's so easy and it's not it's not massively hard but then everything that you do in life it's worth doing is hard so. I'm like jump in the deep end. It'll be fun. Well, you know lots of kids learned to swim by simply having their parents. Throw them in the deep end and they say, you got to figure it out right? Right. I'm drowning whatever right? So. So let's Talk I WanNa talk I kind of about some of the myths and misconceptions, and that's one of the reasons why we're making this documentary is because there's so many misconceptions about home schooling. So many things all the negative stereotypes and people think you have to look a certain way and your kids are going to be on socialized and they're not going to be well educated and you are the mother of seven kids and you've got. Three at home still that you're home schooling correct. To. Junior I have a junior in high school this year who's essentially finishing up right now. Okay. So she'll be done next year that I have a freshman and then a fourth grader. So yeah, each the fourth graders I'm really more concentrated on at this point once they get into high school and I've done this so many times really I'm just shepherding and steering the this play that way. Yeah. Right last year our family discovered not grass history and we love. Knock grass history helps history learners, become history makers. All knock last history curriculum combines narrative lessons, historical novels and biographies activities for a variety of learning styles and most importantly Christian worldview. Congress. History is great for all ages. My mom uses it with my sister for five years apart, and we all love it to find out if not grass.

Since when is it okay to tryto burned down a federal court? Is that okay? Hey, Democrats accused bar of using federal officers to help the president look tough on crime. President wants footage for his campaign ads and you appear to be serving it up to him as ordered. In most of these cities, the protests had begun to wind down before you marched in and confront the protesters. George Lord's death under the knee of a police officer sparked the protests. But the nation's top law enforcement officer His police are not the problem. This is Mitchell Miller on Capitol Hill, A DC National Guard officer Adam DeMarco was in Lafayette Square the evening of June 1st and says a park police warning did go out to protesters. But the announcements were barely audible, and I saw no indication that the demonstrators were cognizant of the warnings to disperse. He also tells a house panel he was deeply disturbed by the rapid sweep of the area that included pepper spray and some officers using their shields on a crowd that he viewed as peaceful. But acting Park police chief Gregory Monahan's As protesters had been violent that day and defends the quick action so offense could be put up.

"st. john" Discussed on RNZ: The Detail
"Began industrial action today, but you could be forgiven for thinking staff simply forgotten to put the uniforms on union negotiators wages of some ambulance workers, taking strike action and violent staff who have refused to comply with uniform requirements have had their wages slashed by teen. PERC- documents released a cheap point onto the official information. Act have revealed the teachers between paramedics, their employers and John and the government amid ongoing strike action, a union representing paramedics heads recent partial strike action for tomorrow, but it's been canceled after Saint. John Ambulance lodged a quarter junction Saint John The injunction was lodged in the interests of patient safety, but some Sun. John Paramedics say they're at breaking point. An Eugene change is needed. What I would say about as that. Yes, it's an important point so I'm being. Saffron paid what they were. They were and what we want to pay them I. Don't think I funding and right have helped an and of course what's happened over time? Is that them? They fall behind, so we've increased the training and skills and education, and we. So staff can do. The scope of practice changed dramatically elementary. But we haven't to record recompense of Rick. Pass what they would. We did a independent pay review last year, which recommended significant payroll for our paramedics particularly and for intensive care paramedics and We you know we're committed to make happen. Come, what may because staff do need to be rewarded and I think Wearing wearing bagging now without without union so account say too much about that, but I'm absolutely committed to making sure that we give our staff the pay that they deserve as soon as possible. The we've. We've had a number of conversations with ministry health. Minister about that about this. This specific issue of the past twelve eighteen months and they they understand that there's a significant pay correction needed fourth of the Swiss Group of staff for Steph and and I think there's a recognition that once we settle out a current abandoning that we will receive an what they've said is an appropriate level of funding support for that so I. Think you know we're committed to making it happen. We've got to him. The thing is take. Take, a look at Johns reports on the surface. It doesn't look that Dia they lost eighteen million bucks last year. Sure, but they still hold nearly two hundred and forty million dollars worth of essence. I think he's really really important as a charity and coming from the UK where I think there's a real strong requirement to be transparent refunding on I'm really committed to making sure that every aspect of what we do is transparent we we spend the public money here even. Even if we found that, we spend money, we got to be absolutely transparent with what we do with the money we get where it goes we're. We're acutely aware of not investing in buildings, an not investing in buildings. An appropriate I think that's been an ongoing conversation. It's John You know, should we releasing should be earning. She'll be even other buildings. We'll be sharing. We've got to do better in the area. We know that, but in terms of our WE'VE GOT A. A big quarterback property portfolio or I'm being sections and which buildings will become we. We can do that, but we don't want to be doing which has been suggested is we start having bills to pay wages? That's that's the wrong thing to do is. You can't survive doing that. After forty three years in the job, there's not much this ambulance officer hasn't had to deal with, but the past few months have been particularly tough. He tears up recalling her heart at Spain. Hell skier it was. Furious. With us. That's cheek. Point. Reporter needs a blake person speaking to us at John Paramedic. Hey I'm sixty life on the road. Fish oil belts. So, South African just come off the plane, twenty five thousand airports forty. Three now and you'll hit Tokyo. I'm sixty four. Is this me is? What I do. To. Quarter on the half. He doesn't want to be identified out of fear of losing his job, but he's furious to hear that the penal rates which the weekend and night shifts that he and his colleagues fought hard for during industrial action last year, a now under three at Saint John feels the financial pinch wandering. Stream the same bowl that's been going on for years and years years. They promise you something and the just to shut you up, so you don't start over, and then they take it away from it. Just it just kept me and we could always smell rich. Company, we. Don't know what the books. What's going on? Have you ever been to and see? We want to be fully government funded Yes. We'd be many times we've got. I've I've spent the past two years. It feels like a latch PA of my time as chief executive of last two years as spent being spent on this on this one issue, there must be annoying. I, think he's an as well as I didn't expect it didn't expect to be dominant. Power My job when I returned from the UK. I think I. Think you know hindsight is a wonderful thing when I return from the UK in two thousand twelve. I was shocked to see you'll be slept single ambulances. And so I think I turned my attention to the issue immediately, and we were fortunate to get funding for an extra four hundred fifty staff of a four years now and position way in ten months time we will, we will know how no longer have any ambulance single-crew Zealand which is fantastic, but BENEFIT BEHIND CY I should've turned my essentially to the issue of funding level so I think my staff would say that Peter you should have actually quicker on this issue. And I. think that absolutely correct and I think what I I've been being generous to myself. I'd say that we as an organization included Apple. We'd normalized. Living on the funding, we received and I. Think Eventually We would use that cash reserves might. Chief Financial Officers we've run an a smell of the Irag. We can't naturally the regular as well and I think it's a good statement I saw. And I think the other challenge here is that because we have seen as quite successful? And people say well want. Doesn't John Need One hundred million a year? Extra doing a great job? Not Actually Crosses. The problem I also think we've stretched the goodwill. The public donors and we've also used up all of our money. We know we have to borrow money from the be every ten weeks to pay our wages. About twenty million every every ten weeks to pay the wages. And ESP now saying well. We got no money. We're in a situation where we need to see a change we. We believe that this is the fondly That, we can manage this organization like what we have on the funding we get. What does that mean what it means is? My board would say if we can get the funding model changed. Once and for all finally, get the funding to fully funded. As pilots renewed contracts than the than we as an organization to make a decision. We are the significantly changed the service we provide the public. Is a service that is smaller slower, but operates within the funding we've got. All the board says actually. Can we actually handle hat? Maintain their services a going concern, and therefore can we still run the service? I don't think he will come so easily those because I do think there's an absolute understanding and speaking to Ashley Bloomfield And at so Scott Pickering, use the ACC chief executive This is absolute commitment to getting the funding Saudi now and not just. A little bit here.

I just supervised follow him around back in the early nineties ended up doing about ten years in the penitentiary. Came back out and we become friends over the last year or so or six months you know. Put out another one of these wearing the wires and he's got a lot of great stories out of the country when he was in and he was telling me about. I said let's just do this saying it's about a guy that went around stealing rare books. He told the one about the guy that got federal time for finding the runner source. Rex The one called the boy at one named Sue Which is the craziest people in the penitentiary? Don't stay more you do. They probably say anything about me. He tell stories about you. Talk about this guy that at had this as as big drug kingpin and oldest cabin down to down on the river and Vans went after and trying to get that cabin. They figured they could use that for a little retreat to themselves. I think I had somebody watching that Gavin. They were there. I sold it the next day. That's always a problem when you're doing the investigation on somebody that's like a professional criminal. 'cause they they will like what you did. You will make friends with people around you. You won't be Dick you you won't you make sure that you got plenty of friends around like the over in the projects where guys will spread a lot of money around with young kids and and I tell you what says you drive in your. The policeman was the district attorney of Ottawa. Chances and he told you you you get turned personality onto him then you all you know. I did well like I told several guys in earned the lesson finally but You know when you got all that good personality and you've got that brains and and good work ethic and ability to to get people to do stuff and work with you. You know should just put that into that used car business long time ago. Shinya oh absolutely yeah. Yeah you're right you had. You had all the skills you just got greedy. I guess I don't know like I catch up. That's all you got caught up. It seems like and and you told me once. You didn't really need quite as much money as you thought you did. Not at all and you like you've got a pretty good life now so let's talk about this guy is name was Was His name Steven Bloomberg even Bloomberg. Oh yeah that's right and you said he was from Iowa would just interesting I. I'm looking him up here. He he's supposedly. He was accused of stealing more than twenty three thousand bucks worth over five million dollars in nineteen ninety. Which would have been ten million now and really you said that he lived on a family trust. And and how much was that dress? Seventy two thousand year year got he. Didn't he just loved loved old bus? I guess now you said somebody. He also spelled doorknobs a stained glass windows. Yeah Yeah I don't know he just would go around the mansion old mansions and take the doorknobs and stained glass. And I get that a lot of money too but he never sold anything because he didn't even money here. We just goofy you know I want to try to restore old house and there's a place here in Kansas City called architectural salvage supply company and South where a lot of guys that go out and steal that stuff and sell it to them and and if you wanted something out of it has to try to match up you could back about anything up if you had an old house crippled things. Yeah plus. That's thing glad that stained glass goes for big bucks. You get that old thing glassman. That stuff goes for but again I don't know why would steal it if he wasn't going to sell it you know never so these These books and and and he likes to get bibles and and anything. That was rare. I mean some of the books were probably fifty. Sixty thousand dollars by theirself. You know so. He wasn't feeling just anything you know. He knew what he was after. Yeah I'm looking at some things. He stole here. He stole a first edition copy of uncle. Tom's cabin by Beecher. Stowe President Lincoln wants greeted her with With your the little lady that started the civil war so yeah man I mean. How much would that be worth only knows? Yeah you know I mean that's that's worth as you know a book like that was so pivotal in American history. It's it's really doesn't really have a price on it actually. Yeah exactly and and like I said he just. I don't know I guess he felt like anybody that had those books and was being in a university or something. I don't know he just told them. I mean at least being somewhere where other people could sharing seemed like. It'd be better than him or them but yeah if he wanted to read them he could just go in there and check them out and read them really. Oh he read them all right but he read them at home. I definitely know crowd and you know those libraries I did. I did a lot of time in and out of the library over here. Uram. Kc Miller Nichols Librarian. They've got just stuff that they've got like Mathematics magazine that you try to read a paragraph out of it and you can't even understand what they're talking about all these scientific things and really old things and and they're just sitting there now if you know what you're looking for which he did you know you just go in and librarians are not notorious for being like you know security guards who cops. They just want to be left alone. They'll help you find something. Then there's WanNa go on and be left alone so I guess they were go and find them and they they probably left him alone and just walked out with him. Don't you imagine well I guess yeah I guess they would you know they would realize what what he's told and a couple of places where they went back and Check further and he stole a lot more than they had even even thought that he'd stolen when they started doing inventory. Then and boy he got away with a lot of stuff. I know what his gratification was but I guess he's got he's done it a couple more times when you got out you know they give them a really appears on this one. I mean it was like it was compulsively for him. Then what yeah yeah? Yeah he was one of these guys. Where if there was something somewhere he had to have it. He got it. I guess. Yeah I'm I'm looking here. Let this ad says he's no more than twenty three thousand Brooks. I think I've said that before. Two hundred sixty eight or more universities and museums in forty five states two Canadian provinces in the Washington DC. I like him. He traveled all around the United States. Doing this up everywhere you know. I got caught I think Buddy Tournament. Yeah exactly right now. Nine name J rose journeyman got a fifty six thousand dollar reward that he'd negotiate with the United States Department of Justice and he was in on a few capers to. Yeah that's usually the way it happens. They used a an insanity defense but it didn't really work. I'd have to beg to differ on that because even not even a fruitcake was he was. Oh Yeah Oh yeah he would it take him an hour and a half to watch sixty minutes. You know but but smart wise. He was very very very intelligent. Yeah he was goofy. I mean there's no doubt about it and you know me I've been to a couple of federal Not Houses what they had done and Springfield Land Rochester. So I'd say and he'd be probably at the top of the list was so he was at Rochester. No this was at Yankee or Yank and oh he was in a regular yeah. Yeah me medium-security I think regular Because they they couldn't prove that isn't Saturday and a lot of people don't realize Gary that like down in Springfield quite a few guys down there that back in the day in the eighties whatnot. Think plead insanity plea and if their lawyers to prove it okay. They plead insanity and and but they would still give them X. amount of time they plead insanity and they get twenty years. A lot of people don't realize that they'll go down to springfield and they'll do. Let's say ten years under the insanity law and And and when they rule That they're better. You know what they've got psychiatrists and stuff down there but that it hasn't been counseling and whatnot. And when they put the paperwork in this he's okay now they start their twenty two year sentence. Go Man ten years. Don't mean nothing is dead or I want to plead no insanity pleas and insanity. That's for sure getting going. Get it over with and that law has changed. I was researching that. Because I've got this story I really. Kinda write a book about these two brothers that were robbing banks and and setting off bombs and police stations and sheriff's offices that were close by and I'm one of the Brothers did. He's a case like that with Plane Insanity and and right after that they changed the laws and made it a lot harder. This is about nineteen seventy. Yeah seven seventy eight. And they changed the laws right after that so because he was getting found. They're just letting him go into place and then he then they'd find a desired. He was better about a year and you know he'd go back and hit the streets again so guys like that abused it back. Then he was he was in joint where the with another guy that springfield that did the same thing and got back out then committed more crimes. They actually buddied up after that. Yeah they're they're not going to get out now. Yeah they and he tried to the last case he was on the add one last bank robbery and and and they didn't name them letting Jay's law yet but they didn't go for third time thinking twice before so interesting. That's what kind of guy was he. I'm into the just the did he has been a regular prison like that. I mean no worming. They may just really. They had to tell them when they take a shower. And what kind of one of those guys. That was real Out there you know yeah your own world. Yeah that's one thing but then sell with anybody or did they like science. Might just to kind of somebody taking on as a project that their friends and couple other nuts. It used to walk around with them. They was all about the same caliber. Yeah Oh you know he was. He was but he was also you anybody that knew knew that he was that he wasn't all there. You realize you.
"st. john" Discussed on Free Cookies
"A luxury. It was like a kind of flattening of experience in a way where it's somehow rendered the distance unconvincing. You know it's like I would land in New York in the morning and I didn't really believe that I was in a different city. Somehow it was just such a smooth. Continuous frictional experience And I think that having enormous amount of money just having to every one of your needs to just met as a matter of course I think that might provide a similar sort of friction looseness though that your life might feel quite similar and London as a dozen New York. Not The Changing the city's being more backdrop than anything else but yeah it it does seem to me that people at a certain level of wealth they do sit of Levin their own country and kind of the same country you know depending on no matter where they are in a way. It's interesting because I've as as young people I don't know if you guys can relate. I was younger. I used to think of red eyes as being a fabulous use of time. And but then the the the cost right if you're if you're as I would be flies like economy and like middle seat. The cost of that flattening of time or they will quote unquote. Well us. Time was a little piece of your soul as you exited that because this is just just I just remember walking those planes and being every single time being like it wasn't worth it that wasn't worth shattered very special way. That like red eye shattering which is different than the Delta One. I slept for the five hours. Feeling is the opposite experience sticking on this idea of money. I'm not sure where the question is in this. But so so. There's the one experience of like people who maybe were born in into wealth and then there's a different experience of of growing up without money in some way. Where as you get older you start to change become a little more. If you come into money you become more discerning in certain things that you do right like I grow breath. Thought old navy was like the greatest thing that ever happened. This clothing in America right and then and then all of a sudden. I thought the gap now. The gap is where it's at and then and I was like older Banana Republic and I'm like that's the pinnacle germ than it went to like saks fifth avenue. And like but I don't believe I'll ever touch like I'm not gonna go by fendi right or Gucci or anything you can have this process along the way and I can look at it in lots of different avenues of our life. I used to just get whatever olive oil existed. That was the cheapest now like extra-virgin. Did it come from these? All organic was that like. Yeah exactly and there's certainly holdouts like one is like You know how account should I ever really by? So I'm wondering how have you had that similar kind of experience in terms of your so discerning when it comes to probably every word choice every sentence you write down and then you see that discernment when you have money? Start to trickle into other avenues of your life. Yeah Reno. Just buy the cheapest coffee now. I have Embarrassed to admit were a tune. Espresso machine how soul. But I had one that my husband wanted a different kind of like you know. It's not a mark of Yuppie Sanity. I don't know what yeah and you know what you were talking about the sort of moving target in terms of what you're willing to pay for white you. Yeah like what you buy. I guess I mean I had the same thing where I loved the gap and and then you get to a different point in your life and you're like but the t shirt apart after six months at one better. Yeah and then you find yourself spending amounts of money and closed the like would've made you faint twenty but now it's like okay. I'll spend three hundred dollars on a blazer that I think will last forever. You know that kind of thing. Then there are still these artificial lines. Like I wouldn't spend four hundred dollars wager. That's crazy. Yeah exactly and maybe the upshot is just that there's maybe something always a little bit emotional and illogical and our relationship with money because I still will not sometimes I will go parkin economy and walk a quarter mile rather than park in the parking deck. Because it's eight dollars more a day and I don't know there's something like sit down in your first class right but I'm willing to my mind but I like I really wanted to save those eight dollars like it just made me connect with my childhood split-second or something like that. Yeah exactly or like I turn my daughter's dresses discouraged when they're too big for her and you need to do to save money. Thanks saved seven dollars for like two hours of Labor to turn this thing into a different article. Okay so back to the the the writing process so I saw an instagram post of yours and I actually saw this a couple months ago and I showed it to Catherine because you took a picture of like a word document on your computer and you basically had like a chunk of text and then in brackets. Start here thoughtful. Here's something up or you actually able to kind of parachute back in and then not right as seen in flow kind of actually wait and wait and wait and then come up with the perfect graph or seen. Does that work that like insert this year? It's been something between the two of us now. We're we're like insert Mandel okay. We'll come back to say something profound here. That's my whole document. By the way yes in certain certain third. It doesn't work for me when I actually like writing writing the draft but at that point I yeah I was looking at that Jay and trying to figure out like wellard going on I feel like that was about my second or third round of editorial boat. She's like there was already a novel but I don't remember exactly an editor must have sad. I think we need to seeing here with bench. And whoever or she needs to say something in the boat sank like whatever it was so yeah. I couldn't. I couldn't do that when I was just writing but But Yeah I guess for revisions that worked for me. But you know it makes me think And comparing myself in any way with Joan Radian had this amazing thing I read once she'd read where it was very. It was the first draft of one of her essays or whatever short stories Does she short stories a piece of fiction as the? Yeah in the tax that was like x x x. He said putting his cigarette execs xxx and it was like she just had a beat but having the content which means so yeah. It was kind of cool to see that that can be done. But I couldn't do that. Were strapped your. Because i always if i'm writing and i don't have like you know there's a if you're reading a sentence and then there's that little inside your brain that's like you can't. There's something more to say here. You can say this in a way that like I need a metaphor here. I need a metaphor here. But you know there's conflicting advice on. How long do you sit there trying to think of the metaphor before? You're certain that that metaphor will suck if you use it like what is that timeframe for just moving on and you know I think about it in the first draft. I reason like several drafts in. I will have points in attacks where it's just like a wine of X.'s. And those are there so that when I'm revising later I can do like a search for like xxxxx and that I find those points united scripted tag. Really something bessinger. Something's wrong what speaking of inspiration especially in this book you have so many amazing locations in the Glass Hotel do you as a writer. Do you actually try to go to all of these places for inspiration or how much of it is kind of Google search versus? Maybe you were on your one eighty at the right location patching crew. Lax Places. That I've just been to now through the course of my life. I I know writers who will travel for Research and that's somehow always seem like such a luxury to me. I you know it used to be well. How do I take enough vacation? Time my day job to spend a week wherever And now it's like what do I do with my four year old while I'm gallivanting around Greece or you know whatever it is that they want to research so yeah you know I take opportunities To travel interesting places as they come But yeah so I guess. I've never really traveled specifically for research. I'm most comfortable writing about places where I've spent a lot of time So Vancouver Island New York i. I've never been to Dubai but I feel like that's okay in this book because Dubai's like fantasy life so it doesn't have to be so as we've mentioned you. You wrote three previous novels before station. Eleven in the Class Hotel and I'm wondering even in the lead up to station eleven which just blew up in a way that your three previous books hadn't did you have a little sense that you had written something special in different like really. I think I think people are going to really love this one or did he catch you. By surprise the response to it. A little bit of both is so yeah. Published published three novels for the very small press called unbridled. Bugs they were wonderful. I had such good editor at their. Everybody was so dedicated to books and writing. But it's so hard to find readers. They smell press. You know there. Just isn't the marketing muscle to compete with a penguin random house which is kind of sad. Because there's a lot of talent small press world but yeah I'd published three Bucks To be absolutely honest there was a little bit done with thirty two dollars. Royalty checks no not no. I would have been okay with being administrative assistant forever and also writing. I just had this feeling as I was reading station. Eleven that maybe I've written something a little bit more commercially appealing than my first. Three bucks had been so it seemed like a good moment to try to make the jump to a bigger press and it just worked out better than I ever would've magic and you know it was kind of amazing. The book was sold at Auction. Which means it was a bidding war and it was yeah. It was really an extraordinary experience. There were even then I was. I would worry that the book wouldn't sell see how long pat from selling books to your publisher to you know come buddy year later and I'm like reviews started coming in and it sells or a dozen But yeah there was really good early signs That it was That it would be successful. It's really but the book feels like winning the lottery. You know say say not to denigrate the book anyway. I do believe in it. But there's such an incredible element of luck. Involved in terms of which book is commercially successful. One which isn't and yeah every just never could have predicted or imagined and speaking of we read the past life. You were a dancer and I know. You've answered this question so many times before but just for our listeners. How how did you start writing? How did you become a writer? Make the leap that pure pure wet. That's fun why agree like fondue. Fondue gold as a kid which I know that I grew up in western Canada. British Columbia What I'd tell Americans homeschool they get this sort of wary. Look on their face producer. Rooms huge gunning. She's like okay. Through and happy signs saying if you stand in certain parts of the. Us kind of taken its code. I like really hard. Core anti-science fundamentalist Christianity like. We're keeping the kids home so never hear the name Darwin but my my parents Parents are happy that was just kind of the counterculture back to the land thing to do in the eighties. So they And the schools around us weren't that great so they kept me home for kindergarten just experiment and then the experiment somehow kept going until I was like fifty but there was a period of time when I was eight or nine years old. When one of the requirements the curriculum was that. I had to write something every day. So that got me into the habit of writing from a really early age and it was just something that. I truly loved. I thought of it as a hobby because I was hell bent on dancer. Now it's one of those kids who are the ballet studio six days a week. It was pretty intense. I went to school for Contemporary Damn after high school. I went to the School of Trinidad Theatre Conservatory Program and this was kind of surprised but by the time I graduated. I kind of didn't love it anymore. Sometimes sometimes if thing that you want to do for your whole life can start to feel like a little bit of Chore Not a joy and that was just really no our pleasure so yeah that. Kinda raised the obvious question like here I was. I didn't have a high school diploma. I've never bothered to get my. Gd I done a year of community college and then three years and non degree granting conservatory program..

"I wish you could have all been here to see kate. React when we actually booked this author for the show or seen my behavior in the attempt to book this author more this show. It's unfortunate that doesn't have a pair of tap shoes because she would have been quite performer. Doing a little tap dance. Happy tap dance all around the house. That's really interesting because I think even if I had tap shoes I wouldn't tap dance because I'm too much of a basketball player to get caught up in something like tap dance. But that's exactly what I mean you normally have swagger in stride but because we booked emily St. John Mandell author of station eleven and the newly released the Glass Hotel. You were doing a little dance where your feet were all a dainty and you're tiptoeing around and you were bouncy and you're so excited you should remember this moment when you called me dainty that's adorable. I am so excited to have emily. St. John Mendel on the show because I I love station eleven and we loved her new book. The Glass Hotel. And as you'll hear in the conversation we talk about a couple of themes in the. Glass Hotel like one. Is this concept of money as its own country whose country there you go and then the other that is near and dear to my heart and a thread that runs through a lot of emily. St. John Mandl's work is like this apocalyptic craving. That's what I call it. The in a non Zombie Way. Yeah because station. Eleven was about a pandemic. And so there you go. There's your apocalyptic thread and then she has a character in the Glass Hotel that when when this character is very young posits this question of kind of craving being a part of a kind of apocalyptic moment and is that something that's inside all of us so this is where Kate and I completely go our separate ways in the would less traveled path. I wear tap shoes as I go my separate way you do you. You tap down the yellow brick road and to darkness darkness and despair and zombies. Yeah I mean I think we already talked about it in the season. One of the first things that she had us to watch contagion as soon as we were in our stay at home order which is not exactly the kind of movie that I would like to watch and it's not for. I don't go into paranoia mode but I also I just. I don't understand the fantasy with the world falling apart. Yes so this is something that we have touched. On in previous seasons possibly previous episodes. I have this deep. Seated internal leaning to anything apocalyptic post-apocalyptic any momentous historical shift in human life. I feel a craving toward and it's not an intellectual craving like I know it creates pain in wreaks havoc and there's often all of the obviously moments that lead to death and destruction and a reshaping or maybe just an ending of the world and I'm talking about movies and books and all that so intellectually. I realized that something ridiculous to like feel like leaning.

"So wise. It's really smart thing and then you started there. I mean I met him when they were little. I was remembering this thing that they were probably six or seven. If they're sixteen and seventeen. Now that we were I was in Marin County and hiking and I ran into on the trail and minuses about the same age. At that time. We're visiting from Michigan. And I was like 'cause even think about this. It was like ten years ago when it was now sexist. Maybe there's more people doing what we're doing and it's but then you're just like on the Mamasu Dryden yes. These are my girls and I talked to them about their vaginas masturbation and I was like my brother. Maybe or my sister-in-law. Their heads were like these are my. You can't talk about sex and they always say how your Mama Sudafed put a love that you've done that because why you are really been the one like taking the shame of it. Let why should we set our kids up for failure? Let's set him up for success in that way and we just so brave and it's also it's important to do this stuff when it's low stakes right like when they're young and they you know they gotta develop into this healthy sexuality right. I guess it's super important case. So then that's where it starts with that. And then how does it move because your kids have really what I love about the book that you are including like it's casual blogs in here because you have been living the work now? Your girls have grown up with this. So there's just so much more I mean even love the first part where you're talking about when they find your vibrator little and you're brushing your teeth. That was actually the very first moment of being vulnerable with them and everything and and so the story with. This is my oldest. I was in the bathroom brushing my teeth and I left a little tiny bullet vibrating. You know the kind of lipstick left it on the counter and I could hear her cat like bouncing skipping another great. I put it in the drawer and I closed the door continue. Brush my teeth and she has into get a hairbrush and of course she opens the door. Just put it in and to. It's like brushing my teeth. But my eyes are like as big as saucers and she's like mom. What's this I said at the vibrator put it away? And she's like no what does it do and she's playing with an fussing with it and didn't have an on off. It was just like a twist and twisted it on as I gets for your private parts since. She's on her eyes off. Crossword I've crosser. Iras for head down her nose and you're tired. She said it tickles. I said well imagine what it feels. Like on your private parts. She turned it off. Put in the door closed door and just bounced out of the room. Got It dodge a bullet or like yeah. It was it was I think. In that moment she realized I was GonNa be honest with her. Like I'm going to tell you point like seven. I WANNA say she was six or seven. Yeah it was like it was right when we went back to school. Yeah so she would have been an seven and so so yeah. It was It was just this moment and it was a nothing moment for her. It was really nothing moment. Like she did not even know she remembers it actually highly not but But for me it was like scared senseless practically said. Who's honest and the funny thing is when I tell women they're like Oh oh that's interesting. Yeah Okay I don't think I would have had a hard time bubba but usually men get like really like. Oh my God you talked to your daughter about that right. How'd you get worse? I of course we did not me. I always a your youtube. You're you porn merits. You can act that but it's true like it's like you have. Two parents are not well equipped. That's why this book is so is so great because it's not even like it's not even like people always WanNa know from each six to ten helmets and I've even been like well. Maybe you should yet ten to fourteen. But every kid's different Eric. It's different blind your vibrators. Something happens earlier than you talk about. You don't lie so the book also Thais approach it is not an ages and stages thing because it is. It's exactly what you said. There's going to be something that happens and brings the topic up and you're going to have to deal with it right there there and you know. So it's it's less ages and stages I think of it more like it's like zooming out like thirty thousand foot view like okay. How do we? What's the goal here? The goal is to have a healthy sexuality right. We want people to develop and be happy and healthy and and satisfied and you know bullets for the difference. Gene Sex and sexuality. Now don't your kids about that. Yeah herself about that. Yeah I there's so much as it relates to Sexuality Right. I mean I have to laugh about this and and I don't know if it was the same for you like I entered school thinking I knew everything right like. Oh Yeah I got this. I know what this is i. I always like beginner's mind like oh I WANNA learn. Yeah Patronizing I. Didn't I was like okay? Sex like I know this but like stupid I mean it was just it was a it was a very immature way of thinking in my mind because there was just there was so much more right and I. I laughed because I am constantly learning as well as I've gone back to be in her mind developed. I'm always learning. I feel like there's so much more impact in the more that we grow and learn and there's more layers and I realized that's life. I've always thought that once I get through this phase that everything's GonNa be easier whatever note. There's always more to unpack mortem. Pack and sex is the same thing. It's like how it's literally a topic like health sex cooking. Yeah working whatever sex so yeah I always like I mean I don't remember everything. Hits you different time so I'm always getting reinspired your girl so now I love that. They're like sixteen seventeen but through his journey. Like let me give you some examples. Things that come in like a parent or friend with like okay so. I just found out that my son is masturbating and watching porn. What do I do? And maybe their son is thirty. Okay so first of all the big question is how much have you talked to your kids about sex? Nothing at all by didn't talk to me about sex. I'm not talking him around. The MOM like no nothing. So it's it's a question of where do you want your kids to learn about sex and you said it's either you or you or you will you too? It's it is honestly that and so we can't get mad at our kids if they problem solve right and the problem is they're trying the problem they're trying to solve is learning about sex and if no one's telling them they're going to use they're going to google they're gonNA use the best resources they have and we kind of get mad at him for doing what we would expect them to do if they were to solve a problem so The thing that's important also to tell your kids if you're going to talk if you're not gonNA talk about sex at the very least you have to tell them that everything else that they do see out. There is someone else's fantasy and it's not necessarily real. It's not necessarily what they're seeing on the Internet porn. All that is not real right. It's it's not to unlike. Is there for your entertainment? One person decided this was hot. Other people agreed. That might not be your fancy but then but then that's all they see with sex in kids are thinking that's actually how it goes down. Yes you tell them. It's just not real. Yeah I mean it also depends on where they're going like if they go to a good site like Cindy Gallop almost forgot her name. L. Sandy islands maker not porn. Yeah let's talk about. Yeah okay. So that's a good resource. I heard they can access that without the paywall though. I don't know that's the problem. This book is so good really talk. Illuminate Dr Liana. Say John Reid me. A parental primer for the talk getting Kozo multi-layered so the parents have never even talked about it so they kind of say it's okay keep it in your like. It's not real and here. Do you think that they should give them like like wipe Sir Loubser? Well I mean the things you should talk about our height it become a hygiene issue right like make sure that you give them some good. I mean get them some good lube or give them some like 'cause they could chafe if they're using or Shane who Yeah Shampoo. Yes it depends on what they're using right like sometimes it's not always the greatest but if you know they're masturbating you can give them a good stuff. Yeah fine stuff. That's body safe and not necessarily got all kinds of stuff. That's not so great in it. You know it feels weird to say that out loud but yeah I mean it's a it's it's sexual health right One of that when I was teaching the college students at CCS F. We used to talk about one of the assignments. I gave them us as a choice. Was To genital self exam and you know I had one student. She was in her. It was a student in the working adult degree program so she was advanced years and she was going back to get her degree finally and she adult kids and and she told me that she had this. Is this gentle self exam assignment? That she just she put it off. Would often walk. Did Not want to do it. She finally did it and she was like you know learning about her body and learning to name our ecology. Well she got sixty. Okay Oh sixty okay. And she was doing this for the first time and she came back and she relayed the story and she said you know it surprised me how I let other people tell me what I looked like all these years and I finally got a chance to take a look and and you know by the end of the. I locked my bedroom door. Lock my bathroom too hard. I know kids are come in and I finally sat down to this the genital self exam. She's like by the end of it. I had my underwear and I was like Relondo my head like and you know somebody who is sixty. It's this is. This is important information about your body regardless of how old you are and if you teach your kids to know what they you know how they feel what it looks like. It's not a sexual thing to take care of your sexual health. Let's talk how you did this with your girls because I think that is so it's like how do you teach them about pleasure and about consented about their bodies and orgasm because my next thing was like people often say Shit I get my daughter vibrator you know my daughter's sixteen just get her vibrator but they've never talked about sex before so awkward and you've been checking right you haven't packing with your kids since they were young so. I can't wait to hear you have handled this wondering how much age or what did you so I mean. I think it's been different for me because I talk about this stuff with them and also because I get toys sent to me right so I've had stacks of toys and eventually my daughter asked me about one and so when she was curious I I allowed it. I mean you said this is a toy that you mom mommy uses to. Please don't even need to say that because by that point you know she'd because it was only it was only in the last couple of years so we'd already had a huge foundation so talk with that foundational. Did you have them like? Did you sit with them? While they did a vet like an exam generals. Did you look now? You never know but they just I just I've I've explained things and I've let them do what they're going to do. Because it's it's almost like you don't need to encourage it. You just need to acknowledge it. So when did you talk about? How did you talk to them? About Masturbation pleasure and I'm sure for you. It's like a guy always explaining water to a fish. 'cause it's like air like how do they not like it was everything it was like? Did you brush your teeth? Did you do the laundry of you like? Here's how you can. I don't know I probably was but it away that people can understand. How do they address? Masturbation covering starting somewhere else with our kids too so. I think this is where also I and I'm speaking from my experience. just kids touching themselves is is not masturbation but it's not masturbation to orgasm right like that's. I think adults get in their heads that that's what they're intending to do when they're like little toddlers right like no they're just like literally touching because it feels good right. It feels amazing to just touch your parts right. Whatever part you're GONNA touch And so it was just. It was a conversation that I just told them. You know. Just make sure your hand clean yet you know. Don't do it in public. I don't even know how to do it now. Because it consent part to don't allow anyone else to because it's part of your the model to and yesterday the Plus model and then the five pillars that people should talk about.

Eight waffles and he starts got telling the story and I said just a minute. Let me turn on my phone recorder here in this story. And so we're GONNA cut in. He has been approached by a guy who wants his. Steve has taken his share stolen property And traded out some delighted for some stolen property and and he has bought his share. Stolen property is taken it as payment for to get somebody out on bond and then he turned around and and dealt with a mob fits in this particular guy was junior Bradley so the FBI sent somebody in on him to get him to start talking about junior Bradley. What nobody and this guy had a case pending and and even they tried to. He tried to set Steve. Up Gabe to say something about how he should not talk about junior Bradley. Jr. Bradley James Junior Bradley is a mob fence I talked about him in the last podcast. We said undercover. Fbi Undercover State Trooper. An informant on junior junior is deceased. Now it was a good guy. Everybody loved junior as I said in that one before this is this. Is Steve telling the story about how the FBI sent rand somebody in on him and kind of how he handled it for the need and and he says he says junior rally was done load him and he says funeral? Bradley's you know the Black Guy severely and he says the FBI get a hold on me. They WanNa know what I've seen. What are you asking me for him? He said well asking you what you got you do.

"All because we have neglected those religious observances through the a year which the Church commands which we are bound to observe while by neglecting them. We have provided a sort of argument for those who have wished to do them away altogether. No party of men can keep together without stated meetings assembly. Things are we know the very life of political associations viewing being then the institutions of the church merely in a human point of view. How can we possess power as Christians if we do not and on the other hand? What great power we I should have if we did flock to the ordinances of religion present a bold face to the world and show that Christ has still servants true to him that we come to church on? Sundays is a help. This way doubtless but it would be a vastly more powerful evidence of our earnestness for the truth if we testified defied for Christ at some worldly inconvenience to ourselves which would be the case with some of us on other holy days. Can we devise a more powerful mode of preaching to minute. Large judge and one in which the most unlearn most timid among US might more easily partake of preaching Christ as a warning and remembrance. Then if all who loved the Lord Jesus Christ priced insincerity made it a practice to throng the churches on the Weekday festivals and various holy seasons allowing less religious persons the wild to make the miserable gains which greater keenness in the pursuit of this world. Certainly does secure. I have not yet mentioned the peculiar benefit to be derived from the observance of Saint's days which obviously Veasley lies in their setting before the mind patterns of excellence for us to follow in directing us to these. The church does but fulfill the design of scripture. Consider how great a part of the Bible is historical and how much of the history is merely the lives of those men who were gods instruments in their respective ages. Some of them are no patterns for us. Others show marks of the corruption under which human nature universally lies yet the chief of them are specimens of of especial faith and sanctity and are set before us with the evident intention of exciting and guiding us in our religions course such are above others was Abraham Joseph Job Moses Joshua Samuel David Elijah Jeremiah Daniel and the alike and in the New Testament the apostles and evangelists first of all and in his own incommunicable glory our blessed Lord himself give us an example but his faithful servants lead us on towards him and confirm and diversify his pattern. Now it has been the aim of our church church in her saint's days to maintain the principal and set a pattern of this peculiarly scriptural teaching and we at the present day have particular need gene. The discipline of such commemorations saint's days to recall us to ourselves. It is a fault of these times for. We have nothing to do with the faults of other times to despise despise the past in comparison of the present we can scarce open any of the lighter or popular publications of the day without falling upon some panegyric on ourselves house on the illumination and humanity of the age or upon some disparaging remarks on the wisdom and virtues of former times now it is a most salutary thing under this temptation to self conceit to be reminded that in all the highest qualifications of human excellence. We have been far out done by men who lived moved centuries ago that a standard of truth and holiness was then set up which we are not likely to reach and that as for thinking to become wiser and better or more more acceptable to God than they were. It is a mere dream here. We are taught the true value and relative importance of the various gifts of the mind the showy talents in which the present age prides itself fade away before the true metal of prophets and apostles. It's boasted knowledge is but at a shadow of power before the vigorous strength of heart which they displayed who had calmly work moral miracles as well as speak with the lips of inspired wisdom. Would that Saint Paul or Saint John could rise from the dead. How would the minute philosophers who now consider intellect and enlightened virtue all their own shrink into who nothing before those well tempered sharp edged weapons of the Lord are not we come to this? Is it not our shame. As a nation that if if not the apostles themselves at least the ecclesiastical system they devised and the order the founded are viewed with coldness and disrespect. How few who are there? Who Look with reverend interest upon the bishops of the Church as the successors of the apostles honoring them if they honor merely because they like them as individuals and not from any thought of the peculiar sacredness of their office? Well let it be. The end must one time come. It cannot be that things should standstill. Thus Christ's church is indestructible and lasting loan through all the vicissitudes of this world. She must rise again and flourish. When the poor creatures of a day who opposed her have crumbled into dust? No weapon that is formed against her shall prosper. birther rejoice not against me O.. Mine enemy when I fall I shall arise when I light right unto me in the meantime let us not forget our duty which is after the example of saints to take up our cross immediately and pray for our enemies these are thoughts suitably impressed on us on ending as we do now the yearly festivals of if the Church every year brings wonders we know not any year what wonders shall have happened before the circle of festivals has run out again from Saint Andrews to all saints. Our duty then is to wait. For the Lord's coming to prepare his way before him to pray that when he comes uh-huh we may be found watching to pray for our country for King and all in authority under him that God would vouchsafed to enlighten the understandings and change change the hearts of men in power and make them act in his faith and fear for all orders and conditions of men and especially for that branch of his church which he has planted here. Let us not forget in our lawful and fitting horror at evil men that they have souls and that they know not what they do when they oppose does the truth. Let us not forget that we are sons of sinful Adam as well as they and have had advantages to aid our faith and obedience above other other men. Let us not forget that as we are called to be saints so we are by that very calling cold to suffer and if we suffer must not think it strange concerning the fiery trial that is to try US nor be puffed up by our privilege of suffering nor or bring suffering needlessly upon us nor be eager to make out we have suffered for Christ when we have but suffered for our faults on not at all may God give us grace to act upon these rules as well as to adopt and admire them and to say nothing for saying sake but to do much and say little this has been use of saint's days founding parochial and plain sermons.

"st. john" Discussed on Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!
"Be with Heidi and her family and the firmly planted homeschool resource center with a bunch of families there and God just did amazing things while we were there got his doing amazing things out that resource center and he's he is just blessing that home school community leaps and bounds so if you haven't checked out the resource center and even if you're not in the area just look at it online and see the things that they are doing and maybe it will encourage you to do something like that in your area in the next month or so we will be a new podcast that I recorded with Abby Rinella that will give a little bit more detail on what's going on with our family and with the movie and all thinks go house rocked so stay tuned for that we want to say thank you to Heidi and the Saint John family as well as those who are at the firmly planted homeschool resource center for their amazing hospitality they just welcome to send like family and we loved getting to know them and and I'm just getting to see the amazing things that God is doing in the Vancouver Washington and Portland area We also want to say thank you to those who donated who prayed for us and who just sent letters of encouragement to us as we were traveling across the country to finish filming the movie it was amazing to see how so many of you around us to get this done to finish this movie and now in post production and excited to see how it's going to provide for that as well so thank you for those of you who continue to stand with us through this journey since we were already on the West Coast we of course had to travel south and we've been able to spend time with friends and family for the past a few weeks as a matter of fact I'm sitting in my mom's guests during right now recording this intro on Garrett iphone which is really kind of funny because I'm used to recording and a little makeshift studio that we have but we're not in Georgia to do that were in California and so we have enjoyed being here with family and friends going to enjoy much needed fellowship with them. There are a lot of exciting things coming up with the movie and with schoolhouse rock to so make sure that you're signed up for the schoolhouse rock sledders you can do that on schoolhouse rock dot com and keep up with what we've got going on in the meantime enjoy this episode and have a great day All right I want to take a few minutes and introduce my guest if that's actually been on the show with me before this and I love having people on here who are changing in the culture who are out there and just really making a difference for the Kingdom and enter has been Garrett are doing that they've been married for twenty five years and they got a couple of kids spend some time with me at my little neck of the woods at the Home School Resource Center this summer in Vancouver and we are just thrilled by what God is doing so asked her if she can come on the show with me today and we're GonNa talk about homeschooling vet welcome back thank you thank you I'm glad that you're here how you guys doing we're doing great that you're just hanging enraging doing all the things that you do getting ready for home schooling we are producing a movie yes I love it okay so for we have a lot of new listeners of the podcast since you were here last and by way of introduction you guys have quite an interesting story to tell you sold your home what in two thousand sixteen Yes yes and then you travelled out to the east coast guess and then you sold your your trailer and then you travel out to the West because he me interesting interesting right so what's going on why why would you do that well in two thousand six eighteen we felt like the Lord had put it on our hearts to film this documentary on home schooling and at the same time sell our house and most of our possessions slowed up in an RV and travel across the tree to film this documentary on home schooling and so so we did and we've been on the road for a few years now and it's been a really exciting thing just to see how God's hand has moved miraculously ways and the name of the documentary is schoolhouse rock you guys are talking about really a revolution happening around the country partic- really where education is concerned and people talk to me all the time of course I'm out on the road speaking to home schoolers but also to people who are thinking that home school thing you know I see is happening in the schools but I'm not really sure if I can do it at home are using this sort of the same thing happening like people are pulling their kids out of school yes yes all over the place we have been now I think to somewhere around thirty four states and we have met home school families along the way and most of those states and across the board is pretty much the same thing MOMS you're not feel like they are capable or equipped to home school their kids but it's it's been the most exciting thing because we get to talk to moms like yourself who have been there and who have grudges waited kids and who has come alongside of US moms and say you can do this you know if if God's calling you to it he's going to have you with everything you need to be able to accomplish it and that is not keep house plants alive and seven kids than anyone can do it yes anyone can do it I think sometimes we over think it do you think I think so yes well because it seems Gary because you look at what the school system is like on the outside and we feel like we need to bring that into our homes replicate it and it's impossible to do that and so when we can't replicate at that we feel like we're failing somehow yeah which is not the case of course no and I think it the revolution that you guys are highlighting in school house rock is this is the revolutionary idea the schools are actually doing it wrong right and when parents can come home and actually foster love of learning in their kids amazing things happen it kids are natural born learners they come into the world ready to learn and we've said through no child left behind and the ridiculous thing known as common core rate that our kids are all the same and so what works for my kid is going to work for you guys have two kids are the same not at all no that's a shocking that's a shocking fact you never talked to parents who say oh my kid is exactly like this all into the same box and it's impossible yeah to do that and so they end up either being left behind or being bored out of their minds and it's it's detriment until two kids and you talk about it being a revolution the interesting thing is it is revolution today but it's only been in the last one hundred sixty years or so that's right we've put our into these institutions called school right and but for years and years parents home schooled their kids taught their kids at home yeah and and and no made fun of him for it right socially awkward I love my friend Sam Sorbo and I were talking about this not too long ago and she was saying I say this many has I think it's just so powerful when did we start to buy the lie that the minute your kid turns five school district comes in and says Oh thank you good job and we can take it from here you bring your thank you for teaching and brush their teeth and you know thank you for getting them potty trained and in some cases even wait that long right before we take him to the school and the school is supposed to do what we can't do and I think the net result of that has been it's made parents feel Sort of inept right yes we just feel like well we what do we gotta give him to somebody else right right and the thing is it's not even about the academics you know we talk a lot about this and we've talked a lot about this in the movie is that home schooling is is important that academics are important because that's what points are children towards Christ but it's it's not parenting about academics it's about disabling training the hearts of our children and home schooling allows you to do that because when you're putting them in a classroom with someone else to train them for thirty five or forty.
