"My mother was on the way to the abortion clinic, but someone led her to Christ, and two lives were saved!"  

Kiwanis Hockett, known to thousands as "Sister Kitty," called the show today to share her amazing journey and her ministry, Fashioned In His Image.

Sister Kitty believes that there is a mandate upon us to be accessible to more women, expand our evangelistic efforts and broaden our support of the programs God has called us to facilitate. It is her goal to develop mature, well-rounded women of God, who are rooted and grounded in the Word and bearing the fruit of His Spirit. She believes that it is time for us to come forth, discover God’s original design for us and be examples to the world.

She is an author, speaker, and counselor. Ministry leaders worldwide often seek her wisdom on governance and leadership.

A person who seeks the heart of God in all she does, Kiwanis has a zest for life and a passion for excellence. She is a fervent believer in a life of holiness and truth and has a loving way of getting right to the heart of a matter. She loves people, and always looks for the good in them, striving to see them as God does.

Dementia, Caregivers, and Christmas

Although many families feel stress during Christmas, caregivers of loved ones with dementia often feel increased heartache and tension. Due to that added anxiety many feel, dementia-care specialist Tracey Maxfield called the show to offer much needed help.

On Sunday's show (12/10/201),, Tracey provided a checklist of tips learned from her 35 years as dementia care nurse.

When you're with a person with dementia, everyone keeps thinking,"Oh well, let's do this Christmas—let's do this one the best ever.' But I think what caregivers need to do is really take a step back and look at what the significance of the holiday is for them and for their loved one.

Tracey shared that many caregivers tend to overdo it for Christmas because of fear it may be their last one with their loved ones.  Instead of accepting that undo pressure, Tracey recommended several ideas for a calmer, but more meaningful holiday season.
