Readings from Under the Grapevine

After 14 years of Readings from Under the Grapevine, it is with sadness that I announce my retirement from my podcast on September 3, with the final chapter from Vanessa the Wonderworker. It has been a blessing and honor to read stories of Faith to children and to have been a part of your family over the years.

You may still listen to archived readings, including the popular Chronicles of Narnia. Thank you to all the publishers and authors/illustrators and my podcast producers who have supported this ministry. A special and final thank you to John Maddex for inviting me to host my podcast and to Bobby Maddex for acquiring permission from publishers to read all my books.

Please listen to my interview with John Maddex, CEO of Ancient Faith Ministries about my podcast and more.

Thank you for listening!

With love and blessings,

Dr. Chrissi Hart

Why does God allow violence to children? Interview on Come Receive the Light.

The tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Conn. on December 14, shocked and deeply saddened the entire nation. As parents you may be struggling with your own emotions and how to talk to your children. How do you answer questions like why it happened and whether the children are in heaven?   How do children process violence?

This week I talked to Fr Chris from the Orthodox Christian Network on how to talk to children about this tragedy on Come Receive the Light internet radio.  What questions did your child ask?

My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims of this heartbreaking tragedy.
