Rev. T.D. Jakes – Let It Go
Using deeply personal circumstances and examples from his life's journey, T.D. Jakes opens up to readers about his own confrontations with forgiveness and how embracing it helped put his career and life on a trajectory that he could have never imagined. "Let it Go" is a comprehensive roadmap to forgiveness, arming readers with the knowledge and spiritual instruction that will enable them to release from past offenses and acts that may be holding them back. "Forgiveness is essential if we are to grow into the fullness of who God created us to be...When we refuse to forgive, we basically insist on setting our standards higher than God's," explains T.D. Jakes. "Forgiveness isn't about weakening you but strengthening you to live again and love again performing at your highest capacity unencumbered by yesterday's maladies."

Deron Lovaas: Ohio Trans Bill
A new transportation bill Congress is considering would, if passed, seriously cut funding to Ohio highway and public transit system. Ohio stands to lose $430 million in federal funding for highways and transit funding if the bill, which is called the American Energy and Infrastructure Jobs Act, passes.The bill is being positioned as a jobs bill, when in reality it will take money away from infrastructure projects in your state and impact not just highways, but buses, subways and other public transit systems in the state. Ohio"s House members are home for recess this week and will be voting on this bill when they return to Washington. Deron Lovaas, Senior Energy Analyst of the Natural Resources Defense Council, talks about why this transportation bill is dangerous to highways and public transit systems in Ohio.
