Meet Featured Sister Marie-Therese Hernon

Marie-Therese HernonI have to confess, the first time I heard about “tapping” I thought it was kinda woo-woo. I couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that this practice could be healing. I like to think I’m open to alternative medicine…but this practice seemed strange to me. But I have several friends who swear by the results of tapping! That’s why I’m excited to share Marie-Therese’s story with you and hear from an expert who has experienced the benefits of tapping herself.

Business Name: Tap It Behind You

Marie-Therese’s Story:

When my mother was diagnosed with brain cancer, my siblings and I made it first priority to help my father care for her. I took the train from Connecticut to New York every weekend. It gave me the opportunity to demonstrate my love in a way I never had before.

Our family was lucky. Although my mother was bedridden for much of her illness, she was not in pain. However, the prospect of losing her did take a toll. During the day, I did what I had to do, whether it meant tending to her needs or taking care of my children. But at night, I did not sleep. [Read more…]

Clean Up Your Media Diet [Christmas in July]

FeelnHave you ever had trouble falling asleep at night after watching a movie or TV show because the scenes kept replaying in your mind? I remember that happened to me one night after watching Dexter and I felt sick to my stomach. I wished I had never watched the show because I couldn’t erase what I’d seen.

I’m not a huge TV watcher but I can get easily drawn into shows that offer nothing of real value. I call it “junk food for the mind.” And when I fill my mind up with junk – like many reality shows, crime dramas and chic flicks – I begin to feel sluggish, in a spiritual sense. I know that sounds a little dramatic but it’s the truth.

A few years ago I embarked on a mission to nourish my mind, body and spirit. I was on the clean living bandwagon and began exploring options for clean eating and natural products for my home, skin and family. I started with baby steps and I was excited to create some new healthy habits that have lasted – like making my own laundry detergent and ditching a lot of processed foods. And I made some changes to my media diet as well – consciously trying to choose uplifting and wholesome television shows and movies. [Read more…]

Meet Featured Sister Tina Marie Griffin

MG_3821-1357x1280Last year I found myself at a conference in Colorado where I didn’t know a soul. After only a few sessions, a group of amazing mom entrepreneurs started to form. Among them was a stunningly gorgeous woman who was on fire with a love for Jesus and on a mission to change the message our children receive from the media. This Hollywood actress turned ministry leader is exposing the truth and challenging our youth to go counter-culture! It’s my honor to share her story with you here — and give you a first peek at her newly released CD, Hollywood Exposed.

Meet Featured Sister Tina Marie Griffin

Business Name: Tina Marie Live!

Business Description: I created a show entitled Hollywood Exposed that I’ve been sharing globally for the past 11 years. It gives a behind the scenes look at today’s pop culture and why it’s critical that we make wise media choices. Basing our identity on Christ and not the entertainment industry along with how Satanism is promoted through celebrities and all forms of media, are just some of the hot topics I address in this live show.

Tina’s Story:

My mission is to reveal the deadly consequences of the glamorization of premarital sex, drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, cutting and other self-destructive behaviors portrayed in today’s entertainment. This Hollywood Exposed show educates and encourages the next generation to live with integrity and be culture warriors for Christ.

Showing the masses how to base their identity in Christ and not pop culture is the main mission of this ministry. I saw a huge need among the next generation to be freed from all the negative behaviors our world is teaching them to engage in. People were dying physically, emotionally and spiritually and I knew God was calling me to speak on the very issues of what was causing this huge deception.

How did this all come into fruition? My life went from bailing hay and milking cows on a dairy farm in Wisconsin to working as an actress in Hollywood. At the age of 20, I drove 2,000 miles west and enrolled at California State University – Los Angeles to pursue a film and TV broadcasting degree and start my acting career. Through college connections, I was introduced to several key acting agents and booking agencies who then hired me to work on a variety of TV shows, movies, music videos and live fashion shows.

My goal was to learn as much as possible regarding how the entertainment industry worked. Therefore, I networked and through these relationships, I had the opportunity to work on numerous TV shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live, Young and the Restless, 90210, Melrose Place, Roswell, Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, Lizzie McGuire, Drake and Josh, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Malcolm in the Middle.
