The Little Black Dress Society Founder Amanda Graybill on The Chris Treece Show

Amanda Graybill, Founder of the Little Black Dress Society, began the organization in 2009 with 14 women in San Antonio, Texas. It quickly grew to 75 women in 90 days in the San Antonio area and has reached other U.S. cities.  Her own experience with abuse as a young adult has given her the compassion and empathy toward women who have been abused and the passion to impact women’s lives.

Through her inspirational fiction, The Little Black Dress, she shares her own struggles and gives hope to women who are looking for unconditional love. Her personal journey of healing led Amanda to Love, Believe, and Dream and find the hope to remove the blindfold that hid the shame of abuse. 

Amanda believes that women need to know that they are loved. They need to know that they are not junk. They need to know that they are not doormats to be stepped on and battered and bruised physically or emotionally. This is her journey, but not hers alone. Many women are hurting, ashamed, and embarrassed, hiding behind a blindfold of hopelessness and pain.

Amanda’s driving force is giving women an opportunity to connect, network and give back to society. She believes that the best way to accomplish this is by helping women reach beyond themselves to women of all walks of life. Abuse crosses all social and economic boundaries–all women are affected.

The Little Black Dress Society is a classy organization representing a classic dress, but as Amanda is quick to point out, “It’s not about the dress, it’s about the woman wearing the dress.”

Bonded Family Founder Dan Snell on The Chris Treece Show

Please Join The Chris Treece Show on January 25, 20011 at 12 PM EST as my guest will beBonded Family Founder Dan Snell.  Call in number is 347-633-9495.

Through joys and trials of their blended family experience, with no readily available Christian resources for blended families available at the time, they found themselves on their knees often in prayer… together seeking the Lord in times of tremendous praise and joy and yes the deep challenges and dynamics of step-family life. They were looking for help. 

To their amazement, they found that God began to lead them, guide them, and direct their paths….  His word began living in their lives.  The Holy Spirit was at work.  God showed them how to love and ‘bond’ to Him, and then through that ‘bond’, love each other and all their children.  The experience was so incredible to Dan and Rebecca, that they made it their life goal to walk alongside others in their blended family experiences.

Through the encouragement of Dr. Dan Erickson, nationally recognized speaker and author of ‘Finding Your Greater Yes’, and people like Dr. Ken Canfield, as well as family therapists, attorneys and even court system mediators, the vision for a faith-based message was born.
God then went to work in Dan and Rebecca.  They dove deep into the Word of God, seeking references and scripture to address the common challenges and dynamics of life.
He led them to ‘take their mess and turn it into His message’.  

They have seen first hand that God could bind two people to Himself and as a result, bind their marriage together.  Through that cord of three strands…they would not fail.  

Dan and Rebecca acknowledge and rejoice that God has allowed them to learn as much through their mistakes in stepfamily life, as they have from their victories and successes.  

Their goal is to see healing in families where their has been brokenness…so that the future, will not look like the past…and that the children, by understanding and watching who God was and what He can do in their lives…would be better equipped for their own marriages one day. 

Dan and Rebecca feel called to share with other families what God has shared with them.
They want to change the face of blended families, divorce and brokenness for children, extending their vision to leave a legacy that echoes in eternity for millions of families.

A LEGACY that says “Keep your eyes on God…not eyes on self”.
GOD CAN take your step-family…”From Broken to Blended to BONDED.”

Authors Spotlight-“The Butterfly’s Flight: A Story About Autism And Hope” Author Heather Porazzo

Please Join The Chris Treece Show on January 12, 20011 at 11 am CST as my guest will be”The Butterfly’s Flight: A Story About Autism And Hope”  Author Heather Porazzo  Call in number is 347-633-9495.

“The Butterfly’s Flight: A Story About Autism And Hope” follows a butterfly who did not develop like the other butterflies. With the love and help of all around him, he emerges from his cocoon and learns to navigate in our big, bright, and often over-stimulating world. Written for children ages four to nine, this engaging story is embedded with a simple introduction to autism, the common characteristics and challenges of autism, and mirrors the journey from developmental delays to understanding, and finally, to acceptance. Her website is www.hearthugbooks and a portion of the book’s proceeds will be donated to autism related charities. Her second book, “Angels Everywhere,” is also illustrated by her mother, Barbara Laubinger, and will be out soon.   

Heather Porazzo grew up in the small town of Bridgewater MA, but her heart held big dreams of one day becoming an author. Those dreams were put on hold in order to focus on the responsibilities that came along with working and being a mom. It wasn’t until after her family was touched by autism, that she turned back to writing as a way to sort out and express her feelings. It was from those writings that her children’s book, “The Butterfly’s Flight: A Story About Autism And Hope” evolved. Determined to raise awareness about autism, she enlisted her mother’s help to illustrate and bring to life the story born from her heart.

“Nowhere Feels Like Home” Author LK Gardner-Griffie on The Chris Treece Show

Please Join The Chris Treece Show on September 15, 2010 at 11 am CST as my guest will be “Nowhere Feels Like Home” Author LK Gardner-Griffie.   Call in number is 347-633-9495.

LK Gardner-Griffie started writing her first, never to be published, novel at the ripe old age of 9. She believes in that magic nation of imagination, and in everything sees the story lurking beneath the surface. Born in Seattle, WA and raised & living in southern California, LK is definitely a west coast g…irl, but loves to travel. The love of writing and travel were fostered very young by reading Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women and deciding that she and Jo had a great deal in common. While she didn’t have 3 sisters, and a father absentee in the war, the making up of stories, dramatic feelings, and a quick temper were enough for LK to know that she and Jo would have been kindred spirits.

Outside the world of writing, LK loves listening to music and even more, singing. Country music is her favored genre (mostly because that’s what she sings). She and her husband Denny are strong supporters of Cal State Fullerton Baseball (Go Titans!) and they thoroughly enjoy supporting their nieces and nephews in their sport and music related endeavors.

LIVE IT, LOVE IT, EARN IT Author Marianna Olszewski on The Chris Treece Show

Please Join The Chris Treece Show on April 14th, 2010 at 11 AM  CST as my guest will be Life Coach and Author Marianna Olszewski.  Call in number is 347-633-9495.

Marianna Olszewski wasn’t always rich, happy, and fabulous.  But her strapped-for-cash childhood motivated her to strive for abundance and financial independence — goals she exceeded by age thirty as a successful business owner and respected Wall Street player.  

Now she shares the lessons she learned on her own road to success and riches in LIVE IT, LOVE IT, EARN IT: A Woman’s Guide to Financial Freedom (to be published by Portfolio in January 2010).  She shows women of all ages how to break bad money habits and take control of their finances so they can lead happier, richer lives.  A sample of her tips:   

  • Fall in Love with Your Money: Having a cavalier attitude toward money is part of the reason many of us find ourselves in a financial pickle. But when you treat your money with respect, keep track of it and spend and save it wisely your money will always love you back. 
  • Act as If: If you think that change is impossible, think again. Start your transformation by acting as if you already are as successful, intelligent, and prosperous as you want to be. 
  • Say Yes to Yourself: Turn toward people and situations that enhance your life and well being, and away from those that don’t.  Until you start affirming your future through both thought and action, your efforts to improve your finances will fall flat. 

LIVE IT, LOVE IT, EARN IT is full of true stories of ordinary women who have overcome obstacles like climbing the corporate ladder, getting themselves out of debt, and changing jobs mid-career.  Marianna also shares insights and savvy strategies from various highly accomplished women like fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn.

eMothers At Home Founder And CEO Lynesa Williams on The Chris Treece Show

Please Join The Chris Treece Show on January 25th, 2010 at 11 am CST as my guest will be eMAH Founder and CEO Lynesa Williams.  Call in number is 347-633-9495.   

In December 1996, Lynesa L. Williams was at the height of her career. Despite the fact that she was very successful in corporate America, she knew something major was missing in her life. She had no clue what it was, but realized she had to figure it out. That led her to embark upon a journey to discover her WHY – her true purpose of existence. 

“If your WHY doesn’t make you cry, it’s not strong enough,” says Lynesa. “The WHY behind us all should be filled with the WOW of who we are. What we yearn to do, long to do, would do for free…it is the WOW in our WHY that makes us cry, and ultimately fly.” 

After two years of deep study in the book of Proverbs 31, Lynesa finally understood that life is so much more than just having a job. She discovered God’s blessing to all WOMEN, journaled her findings and wrote her first book, “Take the Popcorn out of Your Pancakes.” This riveting book details Lynesa’s life and journey and will serve as one of your trusted guides to becoming a True Proverbs 31 Woman and a Mother-at-Home. 

Lynesa is able to talk the talk because she has definitively walked the walk — a walk filled with pain, uncertainty, fear, and ultimately joy and blessings. She has been through what so many of us have been through…instability, problems with our home life, children, partners, finances, and the stark and painful reality that somewhere along the line she had somehow lost herself. 

Lynesa Williams is currently the inspirational founder of eMothers-at-Home (eMAHs) – an amazing organization that teaches WOMEN how to become a True Proverbs 31 Woman by discovering their passion and purpose and turning it into a profitable business.
