Mike built his business on the desire to help people, the promise to listen to his customers and his love of his community and country.

CRAWLING BACK TO THE LIGHT — How does someone “come back” to God? (Like a certain Canadian radio host.)Message From Drew: “Back in 2010, after 7 years of hosting Canada’s most listened to spiritual talk show, I “came out”. I admitted during an interview with Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias, that I was no longer convinced there was a God. Mostly because after 30 years of having a “personal relationship with Jesus Christ,” I realized that this God I was serving wasn’t actually all that “personal”. Going public as a doubter (not an atheist) and no longer considering myself part of the Evangelical tribe of certainty, I left. I left organized religion, left the church and left it up to God to reveal himself to me, through one of those tangible encounters I kept hearing so many in my tribe speak about. (You can read about my search for God at www.drewmarshall.ca/droogle) Because of some fractured relationships (me being the common denominator), 2017 ended up being the worst year of my life. So I’ve decided that since my way didn’t work, it’s time to crawl back to the Light. And I’ve decided to once again, do this publicly. As embarrassing as it is to admit personal & spiritual “failure”, my hope is that others experiencing similar frustrations, might learn something from my conversations with a few people who have had a profound impact on my life. I’m still not sure that there’s a God, but my life was better when I thought there was a God. So now what?” - Drew

Today’s Love Guru: Suzanne Stabile - Author of The Path Between Us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships
Most of us have no idea how others see or process their experiences. And that can make relationships hard, whether with intimate partners, with friends, or in our professional lives. Understanding the motivations and dynamics of these different personality types can be the key that unlocks sometimes mystifying behavior in others—and in ourselves. This book from Suzanne Stabile on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insights about themselves, their types, and others' personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships. No one is better equipped than the coauthor of The Road Back to You (with Ian Cron) to share the Enneagram's wisdom on how relationships work—or don’t. Why do Sixes seem so intimidated and put off by Eights, who only wish the Sixes would stop mulling things over and take action? Why do Fives seem so unavailable, even to their closest family and friends, while Twos seem to feel everybody else’s feelings but their own and end up irritating people who don’t want their help? How in the world can Fours be so open and loving to you one day and restrained and distant other times? The Enneagram not only answers these questions but gives us a way out of our usual finger pointing and judging of other people—and finding them wanting, perplexing, or impossible. Suzanne's generous, sometimes humorous, and always insightful approach reveals why all the types behave as they do. This book offers help in fostering more loving, mature, and compassionate relationships with everyone in our lives. *Suzanne Stabile is a highly sought after speaker and teacher, known for her engaging laugh, personal vulnerability and creative approach to Enneagram instruction. As an internationally recognized Enneagram Master, Suzanne has conducted over 500 Enneagram workshops over the past 25 years. The Path Between us: An Enneagram Journey to Healthy Relationships will be released in April 2018.

Viva TrioRecasting hits like Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World,” Sia’s “Space Between” and “Bird Set Free,” John Lennon’s “Imagine,” Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters”, VIVA Trio converges classical and contemporary, blazing a vibrant new crossover trail previously tread by acts like Il Divo and 2CELLOS. Their latest album, Nothing Else Matters, was crafted with the help of a myriad of marquee composers, arrangers, orchestrators, musicians and a children’s choir. Even Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” has been reconfigured as a brilliant orchestral piece hinged on an electrifying three-part harmony, with each ViVA voice distinctive as a thumbprint. ViVA Trio has performed at prestigious hometown Toronto venues like the Palais Royale, Casa Loma, The Living Arts Centre, as well as Ontario Place for Canada Day 150 celebrations. Anna, Erin & Katya were nominated as Emerging Artist of the Year at the InFAME Awards and as Established Music Group at the MARTYS Awards. And ViVA’s cover of Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World?” was handpicked for inclusion in two South Korean TV ads. The group has also performed in Poland for a televised orchestra concert ending the summer series for the Filharmonia Dolnośląska. Their tour schedule is filling up with dates internationally, and the three ladies could not be more psyched.

Carol WeickerValentine’s Day can really be a tough time for many. Especially those who have been single their entire life. Having been born with a facial deformity, Carol was often the brunt of cruel remarks that left many emotional scars. She was told that no one would love her. The last thing Carol ever thought she would do was to one day get up in front of an audience. The thought of looking at people, face to face, was too painful. These days, she speaks to the brokenhearted bringing them to a place of healing. She began singing and speaking in 1983 when the Christian Riders motorcycle club asked her to help at their meetings. Traveling with the club for a time, her simple, heart-hitting style has touched many lives along the way.
