The Gift of Asking

Every week, Express Yourself!™ will bring you a stimulating program based on a chapter from our award winning book Be the Star You Are!® for Teens. (

Children are incredible with unquenchable curiosity. They inquire, about small things and big things, wanting to know more about the world around them. It’s time to be a child again, and bring back the ability to inquire. Hosts Henna Hundal and Katelyn Darrow interview four authors in this broadcast. First up is author Michelle Zink who writes Young Adult Fiction, and is the award-winning author of six published novels and six novellas. Her first series, Prophecy of the Sisters, was one of Booklist’s Top Ten Debut Novels and a Booklist Top Ten YA novel.

In segments two, three, and four, our hosts interview a trio of Christian ministers who are breathing new life into the importance of being a father with their book Daddy Look. Authors Reggie Watts, Todd Battle, and Darrell Sanders tackle weighty parenting questions in their tremendous book destined to change the lives and make a difference in the lives of all who read it. Daddy Look outlines how to become a godly father by focusing on five important virtues: -Being a Godly Man -Being a Man of Character -Being a Teacher -Being a Provider and -Being a Protector. Ask yourself-are you a Daddy that Looks? If not, why not? Start today.

Ask and you shall receive!
