LIVE! on TDMS - Devoted Souly to the Art of Music

  • Dani Strong
    Dani Strong is a singer/songwriter with an unparalleled stage presence. Her debut album, Time To Breathe has already hit #1 on the Country charts and #2 over all genres at iTunes! The new album is brewing a buzz about Dani, who is blazing her trail as an independent artist in both Canada and south of the border as well. Not only is Dani an exceptional songwriter, but she is also a captivating performer with incredible depth and charm. Feeding off of her audience she can win over any room with her brilliant wit and clever humour or simply dominate the stage with an absolutely haunting execution of one of her emotional pieces. Dani’s story is one of dedication, heart, loss and triumph. It has not been a short and paved road to where she is now. Dani has learned, first hand, what it means to “pay your dues” and earn the respect of seasoned musicians, industry representatives and music fans alike. Dani’s story is unique and her talent as a songwriter and performer are exceptional and captivating.
    *Dani will be performing on October 27th at The Rivoli and November 8th during Toronto Indie Week at The Dakota Tavern.

  • Chris Heurtz — Author of The Sacred Enneagram: Finding Your Unique Path To Spiritual Growth
    For all the ways we live unawakened lives, the Enneagram is here to help. The Sacred Enneagram is a trustworthy, richly insightful guide to finding yourself in the Enneagram’s 9-type profiles, and applying this practical wisdom for a life transformed. Far more than a personality test, author Chris Heuertz writes, the enneagram is a sacred map to the soul. Lies about who we think we are keep us trapped in loops of self-defeat. But the enneagram offers a bright path to cutting through the internal clutter and finding our way back to God and to our true identity as God created us. Chris Heuertz’ life was forever changed after he learned about the enneagram 15 years ago. Today, he leads enneagram workshops all over the world. Join Chris as he shows you how this ancient tool can help you awaken to the gifts God has given you, find freedom from your personal patterns of sin and fear, and grow in acceptance of your identity as you grow with God. In conversational style with compelling stories, The Sacred Enneagram will show you
    -How to understand the 'why' behind your type, beyond caricatures and stereotypes
    -How to align your type with prayer postures
    -How to identify and find freedom from self-destructive patterns
    -How to grow in spiritual discernment
    -How to face your past wounds and step toward healing
    -How to awaken your unique gifts to serve today’s broken world
    Chris’s own journey with the enneagram is an accessible introduction and exploration of how the enneagram can change your life, because to the extent that we are transformed, the world will be transformed.

  • Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach — Author of Why I Didn't Rebel: A Twenty-Two-Year-Old Explains Why She Stayed on the Straight and Narrow---and How Your Kids Can Too
    In this unique combination of personal history, interviews, and social science, a young millennial shares surprising reasons that youthful rebellion isn’t inevitable and points the way for raising healthy, grounded children who love God. Teen rebellion is seen as a cultural norm, but Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach begs to differ. In Why I Didn’t Rebel--based on a viral blog post that has been read by more than 750,000 people--Lindenbach shows how rebellion is neither unavoidable nor completely understood. Based on interviews with her peers and combining the latest research in psychology and social science with stories from her own life, she gives parents a new paradigm for raising kids who don’t go off the rails. Rather than provide step-by-step instructions on how to construct the perfect family, Lindenbach tells her own story and the stories of others as examples of what went right, inviting readers to think differently about parenting. Addressing hot-button issues such as courtship, the purity movement, and spanking--and revealing how some widely--held beliefs in the Christian community may not actually help children--Why I Didn’t Rebel provides an utterly unique, eye-opening vision for raising kids who follow God rather than the world.
