The show today is hosted by Penna Dexter. Our first guest, founder and president Betty Hanks, joins us in-studio and tells us more about Realizing True Hope Ministries which is a ministry that ministers to people who have experienced sexual abuse. In the second hour we hear from Ray Moore (Chaplain, Lt. Col. USAR Ret.), he tells us about a new documentary, Escaping Common Core.
In the final segment, we will hear from Karen England from Capitol Resource Center, she will give us an update on the California Bathroom Bill.
It has been a long, painful journey, but nearly 9 years ago, Betty felt a call to minister to others who suffered they way she had. Since then, she has mentored and shepherded women who are looking for healing, as well as trained others to walk more effectively with those in their lives who struggle because of abuse.
God has been faithful to walk with Betty throughout all the years of her life, and she is blessed and privileged to lead women to experience the healing power of God as she has.
Betty is married to her high school sweetheart, Steven, and they have a 22-year-old daughter and an 18-year-old son, and a 2-year-old grandson.
Ray is currently involved in the separation of state and education.
Karen England currently serves as the Executive Director of Capitol Resource Institute, where she has worked hard to advocate on behalf of family values and pro-family legislation in the state of California for well over a decade. Through Capitol Resource Institute, and its subsidiary Capitol Resource Family Impact, she has been a key leader in advocacy work in the California and Nevada legislatures to help mobilize citizens to stand up for their values in government policy.
At CRI, Karen has carefully planned and led the annual City on the Hill Youth Leadership Conference, which is designed to equip Christian youth with knowledge of the legislative process in California, and to teach important skills of advocacy, lobbying, and rhetoric to high school students. Additionally, she is responsible for the creation and expansion of the “Citizen Day at the Capitol” program, which is designed to train and equip average citizens to understand important issues in state politics and learn the importance of communicating with their state representatives.
