TITLE: “8 HABITS OF LOVE”
SPECIAL GUEST: Ed Bacon
Allen and Dr. Melody are joined by Reverend Bacon, Author of 8 HABITS OF LOVE, who 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 and in others.
Readers will learn how insecurity and fear can keep us from connecting with others, our loving self, and finding our own peace, joy, and creative power. 8 HABITS OF LOVE will show, 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?
