On this episode of Single Again! Now What?, Joanie and Steve welcome the Reverend Ed Bacon, a frequent guest on Oprah Winfrey's Soul Series on Oprah & Friends Radio, discussing 21st century spirituality, and has been a guest panelist in the Spirituality 101 segment of The Oprah Show's "Living Your Best Life" series.
Reverend Bacon believes that every person can live a full and creative life if they can learn to move through troubling emotions such as fear, anger, and sadness to find the beloved within themselves. He explains how insecurity can keep us from connecting with others, our loving self, and finding our own peace, joy, and creative power.
Reverend Bacon's new book, 8 HABITS OF LOVE, shows, through relatable stories, how to create a full, meaningful life by developing simple habits-stillness, truth, forgiveness, compassion, play, candor, generosity, and community-and by asking such important questions as: How do I know I'm living the life I should be? How do I forgive those who have hurt me? How do I talk candidly with difficult people? How do I best help others when they need it? And How do I let go of the past and move forward?
Topics in the program include:

In this episode of The Intelligent Divorce, with Mark Banschick, M.D., we discuss what it is about divorce that makes seemingly "normal" people behave in crazy, and even violent, ways?
Dr. Banschick explains that it's quite common for divorcing individuals to feel like they are the victim. This can even be the case for people who have had an affair, because they might see the reason they did so was that their partner wasn't paying attention to them.
When relationships go wrong, your partner might be pushing all of your hot buttons, setting you off into a rage to the point of verbal or domestic violence. We'll explore the role control and narcissistic behavior can play in this harmful behavior during divorce.
Above all, divorcing couples should put their children first and protect their innocence by not dragging them into their relationship problems. It is vital that you learn to manage your emotions in order to avoid verbal and physical abuse and manipulation, for the sake for your children and your own peace of mind.

At the time many couples decide to divorce, the intimacy in their relationship had subsided years ago. This process can erode slowly to the point where many don't even notice it happening until it's too late.
Intimacy includes sex but is much more than that. Intimacy is about being emotionally close to your partner, about being able to let your guard down, and let him or her know how you really feel. Intimacy is also about being able to accept and share in your partner's feelings, about being there when he/she wants to let their defenses down.
So why does intimacy fade and can the flame be rekindled? Many affairs are the result of intimacy dying in a relationship, and then finding someone else that makes them feel more important, loved and understood than their own partner.
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck from The Divorce Expo in Chicago, Rev. Dr. Gary A. Williams and his wife Greta join the program to discuss how to co-create successful, intimate relationships. They bring a new insight into love and marriage and offer and alternative to divorce.

Today on Single Again! Now What? with Joanie & Steve, Terry Gaspard, of www.MovingPastDivorce.com, joins us to discuss her mission of helping women who grew up in divorced homes make healthy choices in their relationships. (Steve helps represent for the male audience as well.)
Terry and her daughter, Tracy Clifford, are both daughters of divorce. Together, they started their website because they believe that many women struggle silently and needlessly through divorce.
Many daughters of divorce have trouble trusting their partners, fear their relationships will not succeed, and struggle with issues related to self-worth. A history of divorce in a girl’s childhood can predict ambivalence towards commitment in intimate relationships. With respect to divorce proneness, women whose parents divorced are more likely to enter marriage with lower confidence in the future of their marriage, potentially raising their risk of divorce.
Even though divorce no longer carries its old stigma in our culture, it still hurts as much as ever. While people’s reasons for divorcing vary, there are many emotions and transitions that have to be dealt with as family members rebuild their lives. Recent evidence has demonstrated that divorced individuals have higher rates of depression, lower levels of life satisfaction, and more health problems than married people. Terry shares her personal story of dealing with divorce and tells how their new website is helping women and daughters of divorce.

On today's program, Steve's guest is Dr. Margret Paul, co-founder of INNER BONDING, the complete process of self-healing anxiety, depression, addictions and relationships.
Margaret holds a Ph.D. in psychology and is a relationship expert, noted public speaker, workshop leader, educator, and artist. She has appeared on many radio and TV shows, including the Oprah show and has successfully worked with thousands of individuals and couples, and shares how Inner Bonding can help you create the life you deserve.
Inner Bonding offers a complete self-healing process that has not been offered by either psychology or religion. People are recognizing that life is empty without the spiritual dimension, but religion has not always provided that.
Inner Bonding differentiates between love intended to get and love intended to give, between power over others and power within self. It provides a much-needed process for moving out of fear and into love, out of the need to control and into trust, so you can weather the storms of everyday life and embrace the sacred privilege of life on this planet.
If you are struggling with issues of aloneness, emptiness, depression, self-esteem, anger, or violence; addiction problems including weight problems and food addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, relationship, love and sex addiction; personal issues including childhood physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse; shame, lack of motivation and goal achievement, this is a "must hear", life changing program!
