Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711

A tough little kid named Sal Di Leo, taken away from his mother and sent to live in an orphanage. That’s how this story starts. Follow the turns and twists as that 6 year old becomes a man. We’ll talk to author Sal Di Leo in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

Not A Crime Novel

Joliet, Illinois. Early 1960’s. When his father leaves his mother and his 11 brothers and sisters with no heat and no money, a 6 year old and his older brother cope by any means necessary. They are dirty and hungry. The only help they get is from the nuns at their school. Sounds like the beginning of a crime novel, right?

Turning A Life Around

Not so fast. Sal joins The Bob Davis Podcasts to tell a story of self discovery that leads to gratitude. It starts with the sisters at a catholic orphanage, in Joliet, Illinois. Sal’s story also includes 4 years at BoysTown and a few twists and turns in life after BoysTown. Hear the story in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

Gratitude and Service

These days there’s a lot of talk about character. More than a few thick books define character and preach about how to develop the attribute. Sal has packed more about character into “Did I Ever Thank You, Sister?” than many of those best sellers because he has lived it. Check out Sal Di Leo’s story in Growing Up In An Orphanage-Sal Di Leo-Author-Podcast 711.

This is a story you don’t hear very often these days. So many documentaries and speakers are out to run down the church. Every now and then though, you find a gem. Especially relevant is the fact that the sisters at Sal’s orphanage provided a very real home and base for an angry little kid to grow into a man.

Sal is an inspirational speaker, author and businessman. (Editor’s Note: You can also book Sal for speaking at 612-382-3582)

Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666

Seems like there’s a lot of talk about the end of the world these days. The tribulation. The rise to power of the antichrist. No one knows who the antichrist is. Life is not all wine and roses for the guy cooling his heels in the wings. Join us for Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Worse Than The End Of The World

We were all ready for the end on September 23rd, 2017. Now all the ‘experts’ say this date signaled the beginning of something called the tribulation period. At some point an entity known as The Antichrist will take over the world. All this is set down in various parts of the bible.

Being An Antichrist Is A High Pressure Job

One of the things you learn in Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666 is that there are apparently several ‘candidates’ vying for the job of antichrist. We talked to one of those candidates. In Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Especially relevant is the fact that the antichrist’s reign ends with his destruction at the hands of the actual Christ who ushers in peace on earth; a virtual paradise for those who believe in Him. What’s it like to compete for a job that amounts to a suicide mission?

You Won’t Believe Where He Lives

On a recent dark night, before the rise of the moon, I traveled in Mobile Podcast Command to the home of an antichrist. I expected a gothic mansion. A slightly overgrown garden. The sound of wolves snarling as they patrolled the grounds. In fact this antichrist lives in a rather nondescript suburban home in the midwest. Find out why in Interview With An Antichrist-Podcast 666.

Life As An Antichrist

It’s time we put some meat on the bones of these foggy predictions. Who’s with the antichrist and who’s against him? When does all this happen? What is it like the be ‘the guy’? Would he ever ‘flip’ and join the Jesus team? Why are there so many dead rabbits in his yard?

Podcast 565-Lost Desert Civilization?

Podcast 565-Lost Desert Civilization? Adventure and Travel in Arizona at Casa Grande On The Road in at the Casa Grande ruins in the Sonoran Desert, in Southeastern Arizona. From the first century AD, to the mid 1400’s a people flourished in the Sonoran Desert. In Podcast 565-Lost Desert Civilization? I toured Casa Grande. Descendants of the Huhugham (translated incorrectly as the Hohokam because Huhugham is pronounced Ho Ho KAHM) are represented in many of the Native American tribes of this region. They were hunter gatherers who mastered irrigation from the Salt and Gila rivers. Their villages extended all along those river valleys and into this desert. You often hear from Europeans that there are no ruins in America as old as those in Europe. Of course the ruins in Greece and Italy and across Europe are amazing. America, though, does have ruins dating to a different culture and different people, much older than the United States itself. Some academics believe there were hundreds of thousands of people in this desert. They lived in villages stretching from what is now Southeastern Arizona to California, down into what is today Mexico. These villages flourished for many centuries before the 1400’s producing sophisticated art and trading as far west as today’s California and as far south as today’s Mexico. Think mastering irrigation is no major feat? Today, when you drive through this part of Arizona, all kinds of crops are cultivated year round because of irrigation. What makes the story of the Hohokam so interesting is their dispersal, which archeologists believe began sometime around 1450. What caused these people to break up and leave the area? Was it an overly rainy season? Wars? Disease and perhaps famine as the result of an oscillating climate? What makes Casa Grande so important and unique? Or, did they become victims of their own success, with too many people to support for even their advanced agriculture of the time? It makes me wonder what people will say about us someday. We think we are different but how many know that once there was a people who probably believed they were pretty advanced, and in the course of half a century or so, it all came crashing down. While we argue about something as petty as who said what about whom in these final days before election 2016, the message of Casa Grande might be one we should hear.
