Do animals go to heaven? Do they have souls? I’ve been asked to weigh in, in my capacity as an animal chaplain and author of “Good Grief: Finding Peace After Pet Loss” as, together, we ponder these and other spiritual questions on “The Honoring Hour.”

Here’s a description of this show from its website:

The Honoring Hour is a radio show on respecting the collective One of all beings.  The show is here to foster personal transformation by offering a variety of different teachings, techniques, perspectives and tools that help create change supporting peace on Earth. We recognize the innate perfection of every individual as the embodiment of Love, Peace, Joy and Prosperity.

The Honoring Hour will include interviews and discussions that support Divine Light and Love.  Through offerings of service and wisdom, we seek to assist our listeners on their journey of  contributing to the global awakening of consciousness and the manifestation of Heaven here on Earth.  We honor all paths to God and look for the Truth that we all have in common rather than that which would keep us feeling separate.

We are dedicated to helping people experience and celebrate the power of Universal wisdom actively working in their daily lives. This show was created with the desire to support people in finding and pursuing their passion and life purpose.

Our Mission:

To awaken our Consciousness to Love’s Presence in each moment, person and encounter
To encourage each other in recognizing that true power lies in taking responsibility for the creation and actions of our own lives
To provide a variety of information to support the empowerment of each individual in taking the steps to create the life of their dreams, knowing that this is truly supporting everyone and everything
To live in Faith in all we do and support others to do the same
