  • What People Are Saying About Military Mom Talk Radio

    "Buck Stienke and I were honored to be on Military Moms Talk Radio show last week. Wow! What a dedicated bunch of wonderful (and witty) ladies. We're proud to be a part of and associated with a group like Military Moms in support of and dedicated to our armed forces, both past and present. Oorah!" - Ken Farmer and Buck Stienke Co-Authors of the Black Eagle Force series. "Appearing on Military Mom Talk Radio was a fantastic experience. Sandra and her team were wonderful to work with. Programs such as this one are so important because they cut through the hype and sensationalism and offer real military families a chance to address the general public about the realities of military life. All too often, the media focus is on the hardships of military life, so it's refreshing to have an outlet like Military Mom Talk Radio where guests can share not only the challenges of military life, but also the rewards. Less than one percent of our citizens serve in the Armed Forces. Understandably, there's a huge military/civilian divide. With our country involved in two wars, we can all benefit from more programming featuring the stories of real military families." - Andi Hurley
  • Carolyn Blashek of Operation Gratitude

    Military families are our nation's treasure. Yet, spread around the world, they are not always aware of the great support they have here at home. One of the best ways Military families can learn about organizations such as Operation Gratitude is through radio shows like Military Mom Talk Radio that are available on Itunes and the Internet. Military Mom Radio is a great resource that can be downloaded anywhere and anytime, enabling our military to know they are appreciated and providing the civilian community opportunities to get involved in great causes.

Military Mom Talk Radio welcomes Trudy Harris, author of Glimpses of Heaven, also Jason Strickland and Caitlin McCleary Horn of TroopSwapMay 6, 2013

GlimpsesofheavenThere is more to death than simply ceasing to live. In Glimpses of Heaven, retired hospice nurse Trudy Harris offered an intimate look at the final days and moments of terminally ill and dying people. Now she shares more of her stories and also stories from other medical and hospice professionals, allowing the veil to be drawn back on God’s handiwork, while we are both living and dying. If you have lost a loved one, are facing a terminal illness, or are simply curious about what happens when we pass from life to death, More Glimpses of Heaven offers you an even deeper insight into God’s plan for our lives every day.

Trudy Harris, RN, was a Hospice nurse for more than 22 years and former president of the Hospice Foundation for Caring. During those years she was responsible for all public relations, marketing, fund raising and development, raising more than 45 million dollars for her local Hospice program.

Trudy’s first book, ” Glimpses of Heaven ” has sold over 300,000 copies and is currently published in 9 languages. She remains active in connecting the needs of terminally ill and dying patients in her community with the Hospice program she knows can best meet their needs.  Her latest book, ” More Glimpses of Heaven ” was published in November 2010 and is already enjoying a wide readership.

She and her husband live in Jacksonville, Florida and enjoy the love and friendship of their 4 sons and 7 grandchildren
