The Life Your Spirit Craves - Mar 09,2013

2013-03-09 :: More than Rubies

Join me today as I interview Natasha Frazier author of The Life Your Spirit Craves The Life Your Spirit Craves is a 30 Day Devotional and Journal to encourage readers to seek, accept and pursue their God given assignment in this season of their life. To help the reader accomplish this goal, my book has 5 essential parts: Meditation scriptures, devotionals, prayers, additional scripture readings and life questions/application (journal). The Life Your Spirit Craves moves the reader from meditation to studying to life application. After reading the book and applying Gods word for 30 days, the reader should walk away with a clearer understanding of what God is calling him/her to do and a deeper relationship with God. The Life Your Spirit Craves serves as a tool to assist the reader who wants to seek more of God and has a deeper desire to live according to His purpose.

Join us as we speak with Ellen Chaksil. Ellen Chaksil began receiving messages from God after her initiation into a Catholic Charismatic prayer group. Nearly 30 years ago, the words, "When they are threatened with the loss of all this, only then will they turn to Me," sprang into Ellen's consciousness. She had a vision of chaos surrounding the steps of the Vatican's St. Peter's Basilica. She felt instinctively that humanity was threatened and she needed to share what she experienced with church officials.

Worth More than Rubies Interview with Jaime Rohadfox - Jan 23,2010

2010-01-23 :: More than Rubies

Trailblazer, Visionary, Servant, Transcendent, are words that best describe Jaime L. Rohadfox. As an author, writer, speaker and Christian life coach, she is destined to make a difference! She has a servant's heart and knows Jesus Christ is her Lord and Savior! Jaime’s passion fuels her desire to transforms the hearts, minds and souls of women all across the nation. She is not afraid to challenge women to step outside of their comfort zone to reach their God-given purpose. Known as "Coach Jaime” by many, God gave her the vision to begin a coaching ministry and network for women. In March 2009, Women of Divine Aspiration was birthed! Through her coaching, empowerment and inspiration, she helps transform women's self-defeating thoughts and behaviors into healthy attitudes, positive thinking and forward actions. In May 2009, she became the Executive Producer and Internet host of Woman2Woman on Blog Talk Radio. She uses this forum to impart encouraging words of wisdom for today's 21 Century Woman. She is a Certified Christian Life Coach (CCLC), certified in Biblical studies and has earned a Masters degree in Adult Education. She has over 20 years of corporate experience including - human resources, training & development & customer service. Jaime is working on her first self-published book, "Give it Up, Turn it Loose in 2010. This book addresses women and control issues and holding onto past hurts. Women who have control issues do so typically because of traumatic experiences. This is all too familiar to Jaime. However, it was through her dealing with control issues and letting go of the past that God used her to minister to other women. She enjoys spending time with family, friends, music, reading, writing and loves working with children! Her favorite all time passions are shopping, decorating and cooking.

Interview with Author and Poet Tiffany Easley - Jan 09,2010

2010-01-09

 
Author and Poetess Tiffany Easley is one of the forty women featured in the new release Victorious Living for Women. Worth More than Rubies had the pleasure of interviewing Tiffany. She will also be featured on Worth More than Rubies Radio Saturday, January 9, 2010, at 3:00pm CST. Log on to Blog Talk Radio and listen to her interview or call in to 646-595-3716. Enjoy!

Where are you from?

I am originally from Lexington, TN and currently reside in Nashville, TN.

Tell us how long you’ve been writing and what made you get into the literary field?

I have been writing since the age of 9. God blessed me with the gift to write poetry and from poetry I have began to write devotionals.

What was your inspiration for participating in Victorious Living for Women?

In 2006, God spoke to me and told me to share my story! Victorious Living for Women has provided me the platform to do so.

Tell us about your book?

This book is a collaborative work of 40 women from 18 states sharing their personal testimony of Victorious Living. My Chapter is entitled Refreshing Wind In the Midst of Your Storm. The chapter is intended to :

1- How to stand in the midst of the storm, knowing that God is the author and finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2) and how to let He who began a good work finish it to completion (Philippians 1:6).

2- How to grow and mature from the experience of the storm, seeking from God His fresh-new revelation each day.

3- How to give forth (exhale) to others by sharing your experience as a vital part of spiritual transformation and maturation.

What other books have you authored? Tell us about them.

Psalms of my Spirit is a collection of poetry which shares the message of love for God, self, and others, written in 2004.

Are you working on new material? If so, tell us about what you are currently working on and when we can expect to see it on the market?

I am working on a few projects:

1- Victorious Living for Mothers, a Suber-Pullins collaborative work due to be released in May 2010.

2-A reflective devotional due to be released in Dec. 2010. I will not disclose the name of it at this time, because it is a special project dear to me that will be dedicated to a close friend who lost her battle with cancer in December of 2009.

How can others reach you?

Single Mothers Welfare and Child Support are not Your Source! - Dec 03,2008

2008-12-03

PRLog.Org - Global Press Release Distribution

 

By Worth More Than Rubies Ministries

Dated: Dec 02, 2008

Cheryl Lacey Donovan speaks with Mo and Mickey about her new book The Ministry of Motherhood

Court ordered child support was designed to assure that children are cared for financially by both parents.

"I received a court order for child support but never received a penny after the order was made," Says

Lacey-Donovan, author of the soon to be released Ministry of Motherhood.

To add insult ot injury Cheryl says she tried to collect through a private agency and was told that everyone

was trying to get money from her ex-husband.

Cheryl's experience is not uncommon. She says the Attorney General's office focuses more on mothers

who are on public assistance because the government wants to recoup some of its money.

"Even then many mothers never receive a dime. That's why I advocate that mothers take a different

approach. You see, I had to learn that Child Support was not my source. My true source was God. Once I

began operating from that belief, my life began to change."

Cheryl's says that mothers need to stop focusing so much on receiving money from others and begin to

look to themselves for the financial security they seek.

"The truth of the matter is, many of these men were not responsible from the outset, so assuming that they

will be responsible fathers is a jump," says Cheryl

An Hour to Empower with Mo and Mickey will be interviewing Cheryl along with label mate Jacqueline

Moore on Saturday, December 13, 2008. Log into www.blogtalkradio.com/empower to find out more

details.

About the Author

Cheryl Donovan's life is a true reflection of God's faithfulness. Mrs. Donovan encountered God at an early

age. Yet, at the age of 17 she found herself in a constant struggle as a teenage mother. So, after a few years

of trying to do things her way, she decided to place all of her trust in the fact that God could and would

work miracles in her life. She was walking a tough road, but God was walking with her. Through the love

and support of her family and friends, Mrs. Donovan was able to persevere.

"All of the women that I have advised over the years have similar stories; low self esteem, abusive

relationships, poverty. I too have endured some of these same realities. I just felt like it was time to write a

book that tells women that the situations that they are in don't have to be permanent. There is hope, but their

choices must be different if they expect their circumstances to be different. Poor choices lead to poor

circumstances. I want readers to comprehend the message that failure is not an option, especially when you

have children. It is my hope that the life lessons and biblical references provided in "Women What the Hell

are You Thinking" and The Ministry of Motherhood will show women of all ages and colors that failure is

not an option in any aspects of their lives. Women have always been over comers but they must find it

 

within themselves to persevere."

 

Mrs. Donovan hopes to affect the lives of women in a profound way. Her passion is fueled by the many

life changes that have affected her over the years. Cheryl understands adversity and realizes that you can't

keep life from happening, but the choices that you make can determine the circumstances that you find

yourself in.

Her captivating messages are presented with passion and conviction as she connects with her audience

through her conversational style.

About the Book

In the Ministry of Motherhood,author Cheryl Lacey Donovan tackles the issue of single parenting with raw

emotion, insightful lessons, biblical references and relevant life changing inspiration for mothers of all

ages. It will minister to women who are living the life that Cheryl has overcome. The empowering

refreshing messages will challenge mothers to look inside themselves for change. It will help them to

identify the strongholds in their lives; public assistance, lack of education, abusive relationships, and tear

them down with the help of the creator so that they can in turn take the steps necessary to build a better life

for themselves and their children. Cheryl's transparency in The Ministry of Motherhood tears down all of

the excuses for why single mothers can't succeed. It breaks away at all of the lies that are told about why

single mother's are in their current situations; and it defies the statistics that say the children of single

mother's will never amount to anything.

The Ministry of Motherhood is Cheryl's journey from being a teenage parent to being a successful mother,

author, talk show host, and inspirational speaker. It tells of Cheryl's transition from the devastation of an

abusive marriage which left her with two sons at an early age to her testimony of deliverance and release. It

gives an insightful look into what it means to be a "mother"; the hard choices, the sacrifices, the dreams

deferred. The Ministry of Motherhood is more than just a mere book. It is a testimony of God's ability to do

exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever ask.

This book is a must read for mothers of all ages

Blog Action Day for Poverty - Oct 15,2008

2008-10-15

 Bloggers Unite!

BlogTalkRadio is joining forces with “Blog Action Day 2008: Poverty” to take the conversion to all four corners of the globe.

On Wednesday, October 15, the network will host a 12-hour Talkathon for Poverty Relief.

Airing from 12 p.m. to 12 a.m. EDT, the program will be anchored live from Denver, Colorado, by BlogActionDay.org’s Easton Ellsworth, with BlogTalkRadio hosts sharing co-hosting duties from throughout the U.S.

Leading bloggers around the world are scheduled to appear as guests, along with notables from the political, entertainment and literary arenas.

More than 11,000 websites have already signed on to participate in this year’s Blog Action Day by blogging about poverty and aiding poverty-relief efforts. Among the blogs currently involved are TechCrunch, ReadWriteWeb, LifeHacker, Mashable, ProBlogger and DailyBlogTips. I too will be blogging about poverty today at my official blogspot www.avirtuouswoman-31.blogspot.com so please stop by and visit to learn more.

The organizers estimate that some 11.7 million people worldwide are already aware of the event and will read about it on October 15.

A non-profit event, Blog Action Day was launched last year when two bloggers asked, “What would happen if all the bloggers of the world united for a single cause?”

What did happen during the United Nations-backed “Blog Action Day 2007: The Environment” was more than 20,000 bloggers offering ways to help solve hundreds of environmental crises.

such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with
divers lusts

Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Businesses Supporting the Cause - Oct 11,2008

2008-10-11

Support Breast Cancer Awareness

By Maria Romain


Currently, the month of October is designated as the official National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). For over two decades, NBCAM has successfully educated women of all ages about early detection, treatment, and diagnosis of breast cancer. Non-profit organizations such as Karmanos Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the National Breast Cancer Foundation are devoted to raising money for breast cancer research and educating women (and men) about the disease, supporting those with breast cancer, and celebrating the individuals who have survived it.



Companies such as Macy’s and Target are inviting their consumers to join them in the fight against breast cancer. The “Pink Ribbon Items” are sold to help support breast cancer research. These companies have agreed to donate a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer charities. Most items related to breast cancer awareness can be identified with a pink label or a pink ribbon. Ford Motor Company has supported breast cancer research for over 10 years by donating money and selling pink silk scarves specifically for breast cancer charities. All businesses are invited to invest in unique corporate gifts that help support breast cancer research. There are corporate gifts available that are embellished with the breast cancer awareness “pink ribbon”. Some of the other gifts are manufactured in pink and can be personalized with a monogram. These href=http://www.corporatesnobs.com/professional-in-pink.htm>breast cancer awareness business gifts range any where from heart-shaped luggage tags to pink leather totes.



Breast cancer awareness is not limited to woman only. Men are encouraged to support the cause as well. According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Even the most masculine man should rethink wearing pink when it comes to supporting a great cause.



Although, October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, supporting the cause can be a year-round commitment. Those who are unaffected by breast cancer should help join the fight against breast cancer for their loved ones. Whether you decide to participate in an American Cancer Society sponsored walk, donate money to breast cancer charities, or invest in business gifts that help support breast cancer research, you will certainly contribute to saving someone’s life.

Domestic Violence and Child Custody - Oct 11,2008

2008-10-11

Domestic Violence and Child Custody Steven Carlson

Becoming a witness of domestic violence and growing up in such a volatile and disturbing family environment can have a dreadful impact on the psychological development of a child. Hence, the issue of child custody in situations that involve domestic violence is one of great important.



The US Department of Justice gives great importance towards protecting the rights of children who are exposed to domestic violence. Domestic violence in this context does not necessarily mean the child has actually seen physical abuse or witnessed domestic violence. It may encompass circumstances wherein the child is simply present in the home during an incident of domestic violence. Such type of abuse is commonly referred to as "secondary abuse." In a California case known as In re Heather A., 60 Cal. Rptr. 2d 315, 322 (Ct. App. 1996) the court found that two children were exposed to domestic violence by virtue of being in the same home as their mother ho was physically abused by her boyfriend, even though the children were in another part of the house and did not actually witness the abuse. The two children were removed from the home and made dependents of the court upon a finding that the children were victims of secondary abuse.



Parents experiencing domestic violence within their family home are at risk of losing custody of their children. These children may be declared as dependants of the court, removed from the home, and taken into protective custody of Department of Social services. There are several means by which parents subjected to domestic violence can prevent losing custody of their children. The most important of these is to bring an end to such a violent relationship.



If you are involved in a relationship wherein domestic violence is present and children are involved, you would do well to consult an attorney in your jurisdiction to help you learn where you stand legally on the matter and what options are available to help protect you and your children.

Just when we thought our children were lost. - Sep 06,2008

2008-09-06

  Everyday we see young men with their pants hangin' below their behinds and young women in provocative clothing. Yet, how many of us stop to mentor these kids or offer them a helping. What are we doing do give them a helping hand. Children want and need guidance and it is up to us to provide that guidance. Not only for our own children, but for others as well. We are the village and it takes us to raise our children to be responsible, respectable adults.

Having said that, all is not lost. You must see this young man who gave a riveting speech for his elementary school convocation. Not only is he well spoken, he is courageous, outgoing, and cute as a button.

Empowering you to Empower Yourself - Aug 17,2008

2008-08-17

When each of us is born we are full of God given potential. Ask any young child what they want to be when they grow up and their answers will amaze you; a doctor and a lawyer, a ballerina and a school teacher, a fireman, and a football player. The problem arises when we as adults begin to scoff at their remarks. We're quick to say, "oh sweetie, you can't do all that."

My question is why not? God said we could do all things through Christ who strengthens us. I believe Peter Pan had the right idea about never growing up because growing up causes us to stop listening to the voice within in us reminding us that God's plans for us are good. Instead, we begin to listen to and internalize those voices that say you won't ever amount to anything, or the ones that say you're too ugly or too dumb.

Not seeing ourselves the way God see us, we begin to validate ourselves through the eyes of others. The time has come to create a paradigm shift in our lives. We need to ask ourselves, "Is anything to hard for God? Is this day in my life more than God can handle? Is this habit I'm trying to overcome too hard for him?" Asking these questions prompts us to seek God on His power to help us with the impossible. THe impossible is simply an opportunity for God.

Seek God first and He will add all that you need. Meditate on His word both day and night so that it becomes a part of your DNA.

You have the power of life and death in your own tongue. Begin to speak life into your dead situations. Tell yourself that no weapon formed against you will prosper because greater is He that is in your than he that is in the world. Remember the word says you are more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ and you are the head and not the tail, above and not beneath.

This is the word of the Lord. He wishes not that anyone would perish. Hide His words about you in your heart. Walk in His destiny which was designed only for you. Lean not to your own understanding. Trust Him and he will direct your path. Fortify your faith by working towards the destiny God has for you and watch your life begin to change.

Award Winning Author Cheryl Lacey Donovan Speaks to Sister Divas Magazine about Challenging Women to - Jul 18,2008

2008-07-18

July 06, 2008

-- No one owe's us anything. It's time that we stop blaming others for our poor choices. The only person we can control is ourselves. --

/24-7PressRelease/
- HOUSTON, TX, July 06, 2008 - "Ultimately we each are responsible for our own life situations. It's all about what we are willing to accept. We teach people how to treat us." says author of Women What the Hell are You Thinking and the soon to be released Ministry of Motherhood.

Cheryl strongly believes that each of us should look inside ourselves for the change we want to experience in our lives.

"As women we must stop blaming others (i.e., our "baby's daddy", the kids, our parents), for the poor choices that we've made. In most cases we aren't forced to sleep with men who are irresponsible. Yet, for some strange reasoon we expect them to become responsible when children are born. No one owes us anything. But we owe it to ourselves and our children to do everything possible to achieve the most out of life. It's time for us to take responsibility for our actions and deal one on one with the consequences of our choices; good or bad."

Cheryl addresses cyclical poverty, low self esteem, parenting, marriage, and domestic violence in each of her books.

This month, Cheryl will be featured in the Life section of Sister Divas Magazine. Read more about Cheryl at http://www.sisterdivasmagazine.net beginning July 21st.

The Feminization of the African American Male - Jul 13,2008

2008-07-13

I did a show on the Feminization of the African American Male. During my research I found this article. It was very intriguing. The article paints a dark picture regarding the future relations of African American males and females.

My question is, when will men stop blaming everyone and everything else for their inability to succeed. We all know that race relations are still very strained in our country. We also know that African Americans must work twice as hard to achieve. However, having said this, many of our men are not "working" at all. Instead they opt to use "the white man holdin' me down" mentality.

Now, don't get me wrong, there are many brothers out there who are doin' their thing, but many more of them are not. This is why we have so many single parent households, jail cells fuller that college campuses, and overall degradation of the African American family.

I personally know men who are well in their sixties and still don't know what they want to be when they grow up. When they were in their 40's and 50's, their 70+ mother was hunting them down in alley ways like children. What's up with that. These same "men" have to turn to their younger family counterparts for handouts. This is not the way it should be. When is enough enough!

To say that the white man brought drugs and guns into our neighborhoods is one thing, but when did they hold the gun to our heads and make us use them?

As an African American women, I live for the day when all of our men take a stand for our children, our families, and our communities.

Read the article below and leave any comments you may have. God Bless.

Why Oprah's still single - society and opportunities for African American people - Brief Article

Paul Offner


TAMA MATTOCKS IS A LIVELY, ARTICulate 42-year-old African-American woman who lobbies for a healthcare association in Washington, D.C. A native of Detroit, she attended Wayne State University before pursuing a doctorate in anthropology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Stopping just short of getting her degree, she went to work for a state assemblyman, whom she accompanied to Washington in 1992 when he was elected to Congress.

Madison was home to few blacks, so social opportunities were limited. Washington would be different, Mattocks thought, with its sizable black professional class, but it hasn't worked out that way. Interesting, eligible men have been few and far between. Some of the men she's met have little interest in working, preferring to seek out women who will support them--"a rag-head on your couch," she calls them, conjuring up images of the lead character in Baby Boy, John Singletons story of a seductive predator who lives off his girlfriends. On one occasion, the congressman even arranged a blind date, but nothing became of it. "Maybe you should join a bowling club," one friend suggested half-jokingly. "The pain of being alone is so great that you go into denial," says Mattocks, "so you can get up and go to work the next day" Most of her friends have given up thoughts of marriage.

Mattocks's experience is not unusual. Just look at any African-American publication. "Are professional black women losing in the dating game?" asks Jet, the popular African-American news magazine. "Within their own ethnic group, sisters find slim pickings," reports the San Francisco Sun Reporter. "Most of us don't even come in contact with single, middle-class males," laments a professional woman in the Memphis Tri-State Defender. This struggle was captured in Terry McMillan's bestselling novel, Waiting to Exhale, which later became a movie starring Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett. Its success came as no surprise to its target audience. "It is so popular," Sherry Smith told the Philadelphia Tribune, "because there are so many single females out there trying to find a good male."

This is something new within the African-American community. Over the last generation, most of the problems taking center stage involved such matters as single-parent families, welfare dependency, and the feminization of poverty. But here's a problem affecting relatively successful African Americans. The number of well-educated, professional women is multiplying rapidly; but the number of similarly situated black men is not. In fact, as black women advance, black men are falling further and further behind. It's not a subject that black leaders like to address, but it's a hot topic in African-American periodicals, where professional women complain bitterly about the difficulty of finding suitable mates.

Lonely At The Top

African Americans have made great strides in the area of education over the last 20 years. The percentage graduating from high school has increased by more than one quarter, and the percentage enrolling in college is up 44 percent. African Americans still trail whites in both areas, but at least the numbers are moving, in the right direction.

Unfortunately, nearly all the improvement in college enrollment has been among black women, who now receive twice as many college degrees as black men. The number of black men graduating from college today has barely budged from where it was 20 years ago.

Nationally, college women outnumber men among all racial groups. But the imbalance is much greater among African Americans. Black women earn twice as many master's degrees, 50 percent more PhDs, and 50 percent more degrees in law, medicine, and dentistry. What's more, the gap is widening. If current trends continue, 20 years from now black women attending college will outnumber their male counterparts by three to one.

Already, black women are getting most of the good jobs. A half-century ago, women filled about a quarter of the management and administrative positions held by blacks; today, they fill just under 60 percent. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the imbalance is even greater in larger firms, where black professional women outnumber men by two to one. Of course, African-American women are not alone in terms of professional advancement. Happily, women of all races have increased their share of college enrollments and management jobs over the last 40 years. But there is one important difference: Among whites and Hispanics, men are still far ahead.

Currently, these changes affect a relatively small number of people--most black female workers are still concentrated in low-paying jobs and are paid, on average, less than either white women or black men. But the assessment of Harvard sociology professor Orlando Patterson seems apt: African-American women are now "poised to assume leadership in almost all areas of the Afro-American community and to outperform Afro-American men at middle-and upper-class levels of the wider society and economy?" What we're witnessing, in other words, could be called the feminization of the African-American elite.

Slim Pickings

In the realm of dating, this creates what must be a frustrating situation for many single women. They are told to expand their search to include less-educated men, younger men, and older men. (In How Stella Got Her Groove Back, another McMillan novel, the heroine finds happiness with a man 20 years her junior). A recent issue of the Tri-State Defender summed up the frustration of a college-educated woman whose friends counseled her to seek out blue-collar men. "Why are we told to marry down?" she wonders. "I want to be in a relationship with someone who is an equal in every way."

What is remarkable, though, is how many women are marrying down. More than half of black female college graduates are married to men who don't have degrees (for whites, the figure is 31 percent). Four percent are married to men who haven't even graduated from high school. For a few, there is the inter-marriage option. Although black intermarriage has traditionally been rare, that is beginning to change. But it only worsens the imbalance, since black men are much more likely than black women to marry people of other races.

For other educated black women, the choices are few. Says Walter Farrell, a University of Wisconsin professor who has studied the subject, "The more prominent the successful black woman becomes, the greater the chance she will end up alone." As a result, professional black women are having fewer children, which means that a growing percentage of black children are being born into less educated, less affluent families.

Women's Work

A number of explanations have been offered for why black women are doing so much better than black men. Some focus on female upbringing. "Historically, in the matriarchal Negro society," writes former Urban League President Whitney Young, "mothers made sure that if one of their children had a chance for higher education, the daughter was the one to pursue it." The goal was to spare her from a lifetime of domestic work. In 1940, 60 percent of employed black women worked as domestics, while another 11 percent were farm laborers, with the result that on average black women earned 38 percent as much as white women. World War II changed that by opening up new opportunities in offices and factories. By 1980, only 6 percent worked as domestics, and black women's earnings were roughly on a par with whites.

For black men, however, things didn't go as well. Although they made just under half as much as white men in 1940, at least they had access to the well-paying manufacturing jobs that dominated urban labor markets at that time. During the '60s and early '70s, their wages rose relative to white men's, but this progress stopped when many manufacturing firms abandoned urban centers. By 1980, black men earned 26 percent less than their white counterparts, and a good case could be made that it Was they, not the women, who most needed help.

In other words, at a time when domestic labor was the predominant form of work among black women, they attended college at the same rate as the men. Later on, when fewer and fewer women worked as domestics, the women's college attendance soared. On balance, then, it is hard to see how the parental interest in having their daughters avoid domestic work can explain the gender gap in college enrollments.

An alternative explanation focuses on the boys and the harm allegedly done to them by the weakening of the African-American family. Former Senator Daniel Pat Moynihan (D-NY) famously made this argument in his 1965 report on the Negro family. Many black leaders criticized the report for "blaming the victim," even though Moynihan clearly placed the blame on this nation's unemployment record and discriminatory history. In any event, his analysis proved prophetic. While a quarter of African-American families were headed by single women in the year Moynihan issued his report, today that fraction has more than doubled to reach 56 percent.

But the argument that single-parent families disproportionately hurt boys is suspect. Girls may not be going to jail in large numbers, but they face their own considerable problems, such as out-of-wedlock childbirth. Today, fully half of black women between the ages of 20 and 24 have children, which most raise on their own. Sociologists Sara McLanahan and Gary Sandefur, authors of the authoritative Growing Up with a Single Parent, make a convincing case that girls, not boys, are most damaged by the absence of a parent. Yet, despite these significant obstacles, young black women are attending college in record number.

Another explanation involves what Brookings Institution scholar Joyce Ladner calls the "demonization" of young black males and the adoption of stricter policies toward their antisocial behavior. Today, a disproportionate number of black boys are labeled as hyperactive, prescribed medications such as Ritalin, and assigned to special education classes. Many end up in jail. In 2000, more than one in 10 African-American males between the ages of 25 and 29 were incarcerated (among high school dropouts, more than one in three). Moreover, high black crime rates have done more than just reduce college enrollments. When businesses feel compelled to hire more African Americans, writes Andrew Hacker, they generally pick women because they find them less threatening.

Mars vs. Venus

"Unless unforeseen social forces reverse current trends," writes sociologist Robert Staples, "the future is likely to bring one of the first cases in history where women have achieved superiority over men in the vital areas of education, occupation, and income." While few people would dispute Staples's point as it pertains to blacks, there is disagreement over what it signifies. For instance, Robert Hill, author of The Strengths of Black Families, doubts that much will change and cites the example of the black church: Women are in the majority, they head up most of the church clubs and contribute most of the money, yet men make most of the decisions. On the other hand, success in the American economy today is increasingly associated with specialized knowledge and skills, and African-American women have the clear advantage there.

Indeed, they may have too much of an advantage. College-educated women want to find men with similar backgrounds, and the shortage of college-educated men rules that out for many of them. As the education gap widens in the future, marriage rates will continue to drop. More and more of these women will remain childless, and a growing proportion of black children will be born into poor single-parent families, with all the disadvantages attendant on that fact.

Oddly, current government policy may actually be adding to the problem. In an effort to increase welfare recipients' long-term self-sufficiency, 22 states now help welfare mothers attend college, a form of assistance largely unavailable to the fathers, most of whom are not on welfare.

As it happens, the current round of welfare reform just underway in Washington includes a major campaign to raise marriage rates. Conservatives would like to provide pro-marriage education to children in school and give states financial rewards for increasing marriage rates and reducing divorce. Robert Rector of the conservative Heritage Foundation even favors bonuses for at-risk women who avoid getting pregnant until they are married. The only problem is that no one knows how to increase marriage, and the little we do know suggests that it's not as simple as handing out bonuses to young women who put off child-bearing.

One promising place to start would be increasing the rate of college attendance among African-American men. This will require reexamining many of our education policies, such as the way we deal with boys who act up in school and those who are involved with drugs. Currently 400,000 individuals--mostly young black men--are behind bars on drug charges. One and a half times as many black men are in prison as in college. When they get out, most of them will have trouble finding steady work, and thus becoming reliable fathers to their children. Four years ago, Congress enacted legislation denying college financial aid to anyone convicted of a drug offense, which can only make such matters worse.

But if significant progress is to be made in this area, the African-American community will have to take the lead. And therein lies the problem. The relative position of men and women has always been controversial among blacks, which means that there is no consensus on the nature of the problem or what should be done about it. "There is a crisis in nearly all aspects of gender relations," writes Orlando Patterson, "and it is getting worse" In this environment, there is a danger that the higher-education gender gap will be airbrushed over, lest it become an embarrassment to the African-American community.

Black organizations such as the National Urban League and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People have never much involved themselves in welfare reform, preferring to let the states and welfare advocacy groups take the lead. But there is no one else to go to bat for black men. Nor can anyone else hope to resolve the gender issues that divide African Americans today. Without pressure from black leaders, the likelihood is that nothing will be done, and that would be a disaster for both the black community and the nation.

Will He Ever Propose? - Jun 08,2008

2008-06-08

I moved in with my boyfriend shortly after we started dating. I thought we'd be engaged and married very soon after that. I was wrong. Instead, we lived together for over four years, without ever getting married. He told me that he was comfortable with our arrangement and lost his burning desire to put that ring on my finger because he had everything a marriage brings, except no piece of paper or ring between us. I finally broke up with him, because I knew he'd never marry me. It was difficult, but I think if we had not lived together, things might have worked out differently.

We hate to say it ladies, but we all know someone who has lived with a man for several years with the promise of marriage only to learn that the man has no intentions of marriage. To make matters worse, our friends meet up with their former man a few months later and he reports he is either married or getting married. What's wrong with this picture? Women what the hell are you thinking?

Grandmama used to say, "Why should he buy the cow if the milk is free?" Good question.

Ladies we teach people how to treat us. We must learn to set boundaries in our relationships. If we always do what we've always done, then we'll always get what we've always got.

Honor and respect yourselves. Stop living with these men that have no intention of marrying you now or ever. At least set some ground rules for the relationship. You can do bad all by yourself. It's not the end of the world to be alone.
