Chris Muggler Discusses the Importance of Mercy

Chris David Muggler Indian Trail

INDIAN TRAIL, NC, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 / — January is often a stark contrast to the cheer and festivities of December. The decorations have been put away, nights are colder and longer, and parties and gatherings are few and far between. But recalling the reason for the Christmas season, God’s mercy and the birth of His son who would redeem and save mankind, is a way to start the new year off with a brighter outlook. Chris David Muggler has experienced God’s mercy firsthand and is dedicated to sharing His love and light with others.

Chris Muggler, now a devout man of God, did not always have his heart and mind open to receive Him. On becoming a Christian, he says: “My personal Christian testimony is not my own. It’s another glimpse of God’s grace being brought to another broken sinner through His Holy Spirit. I grew up with interests in Christianity but was swayed away from it. I lived for attention and love but they never seemed to fulfill my desires in totality.”

It was in his sophomore year at the University of North Carolina Charlotte that he attended a Campus Outreach meeting and let God in for the first time. It fulfilled him in a way he had never known before. Eager for enlightenment as well as salvation, Chris Muggler quickly made faith his priority, a decision which has served him well in the years since.

While Chris Muggler was always a kindhearted and giving soul, his faith has pushed him to be even more philanthropic and give his time and energy to help others. In addition to speaking at his church, he is heavily involved in various community outreach endeavors.

Chris Muggler says volunteering, whether it is at the local animal shelter or soup kitchen, is one of the best ways to share God’s mercy. Besides this, there are several little things you can do on a daily basis. These include being patient and withholding judgment, accepting people’s quirks and differences, and giving people a second chance. He also suggests being radically kind, helping people around you who are hurt or struggling, and even responding to anger or hatred with kindness.

As Peter Kreeft said, “It is mercy, not justice or courage or even heroism, that alone can defeat evil.”

Leah Carpenter, of Stanley, N.C., Presented the University’s Most Prestigious Undergraduate Award

I was so impressed with you from the moment we met. Everything you stand for, it beams from you immediately.”

— Lisa Tucker

BOILING SPRINGS, NC, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 / — A high school senior described as a “ray of sunshine” is the first recipient of the Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength Scholarship at Gardner-Webb University. Leah Carpenter, of Stanley, N.C., made history recently when she received the award, which is given to a student with exceptional academic achievement, who also exemplifies the commands of Jesus found in Mark 12:29-31—“Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself.”

Gardner-Webb President Dr. William M. Downs welcomed everyone and noted the significance of the occasion. “We’re here to thank one family who has meant so very much to this university and to welcome a new family to our campus,” he affirmed. “The Tucker family name has become synonymous with student success here at Gardner-Webb. Each day we get to enjoy the showcase facility called the Tucker Student Center. And now, thanks to the continued generosity of the Tuckers, we come together to celebrate the awarding of the inaugural Tucker Heart, Soul, Mind and Strength Scholarship—the most prestigious undergraduate award at Gardner-Webb.”

Carolyn and Robert Tucker, who gave the University $5.5 million in 2010 for the Tucker Student Center, established the Tucker Scholarship in March 2019 with a $4 million scholarship endowment. Before presenting the scholarship to Carpenter, Mrs. Tucker explained what Mark 12:29-31 means to her. “Many years ago, I asked God for one thing,” she shared. “My life prayer for all of my seed and their spouses is that they would love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength, and their neighbor as themselves.”

To remind her children, grandchildren and future Tucker generations of her request, Mrs. Tucker gave them plaques inscribed with the scripture. Replicas of the plaques also hang at entrances to every building on the GWU campus. Before presenting the scholarship to Carpenter, Mrs. Tucker gave her one of the plaques.

The formal scholarship presentation was made by the Tuckers’ daughter, Lisa, a 1989 alumna. “I was so impressed with you from the moment we met,” she told Carpenter. “Everything you stand for, it beams from you immediately.”

Carpenter, who plans to major in nursing, is a senior at Highland School of Technology in Gastonia, N.C. She was one of 90 individuals recommended for the scholarship, and among 15 finalists. “I am extremely overjoyed and grateful to the Tucker family,” Carpenter stated. “It’s amazing to be selected for this scholarship. I wanted to come to Gardner-Webb, because of the nursing 100 percent passing rate (on the licensing exam). Also, whenever I came to campus here, I felt at home. I told my mom, ‘Whether I get the scholarship or not, Gardner-Webb is the place.’”

She’s a member of the Beta Club and her community service includes packing meals for a homeless ministry, helping with a summer home repair ministry, and serving on a mission trip to those impacted by Hurricane Florence. She is a member of a Bible club and shares her faith with those around her. “I feel like I owe something back to the community, because it’s what Jesus would do,” Carpenter expressed. “It’s the best experience you will ever have in your life, humbling yourself and helping others. I enjoy every single minute of it.”

Carpenter was nominated for the scholarship by Taylor Campbell, a GWU alumna and her youth pastor at New Covenant United Methodist Church in Mt. Holly, N.C. “She’s a leader and does so much in our youth group, our church and our community,” Campbell described. “Her love and her light just radiates.”

Among the faculty and staff in attendance was former GWU President Dr. Frank Bonner, who served on the Tucker Scholarship selection committee and was instrumental in helping to establish the endowment. Special guests were Carpenter’s parents, John and Kelly Carpenter; her sister, Hannah Carpenter; her grandparents, Martha and Donny Coltharp; her aunt and cousin, Kristy and Levi Summey, all of Stanley; and her great aunt and uncle, Prue and Fredrick Carpenter of Lincolnton, N.C.

Founded as Boiling Springs High School in 1905 as a Baptist institution, it is one of only three private, doctoral universities in North Carolina along with Duke University and Wake Forest University.

Leah Marie of The Mind Health Coach to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WESTPORT, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2020 / — The sixth leading cause of death is Alzheimer's Disease, and today, one out of every five people over the age of 65 is diagnosed with the disease. It’s terrible condition that affects not only the person, but their family and caregivers as well.

Leah Marie is The Mind Health Coach, specializing in holistic stress management for families affected by the challenges of dementia. For over a decade, Leah has worked with families struggling with dementia and Alzheimer's to employ strategies that assist them in gaining a sense of peace.

“When I was very young, my grandfather showed early signs of dementia. He progressed to Alzheimer's disease and it was very traumatic for my family to watch him slip away,” recalls Leah. “I saw a huge need for people to understand that their wellness is not just their physical body but also brain health.”

Communicating with loved ones who suffer from dementia can be extremely stressful and isolating. In fact, studies show one in five caregivers will pass before their loved one with Alzheimer's because of the stress.

Leah says it’s about accepting where they are and appreciating what they have left.

“It's shocking when these types of behaviors happen, but it's because they're stressed and they don't know how to communicate effectively anymore,” Leah explains. “Their brains are not working correctly; it’s feeding them wrong information. It is so important that families understand that their loved one hasn't changed as a person and that they just aren't able to utilize their judgement center as effectively anymore because of the disease process.”

Leah was inspired on this path following a near-death experience.

“I had to look for other means to recover from my experience,” recalls Leah. “That's when I started meditating. Then I learned emotional freedom technique. Essential oils are great. Yoga is just amazing. The self-care that happens with Ayurveda is so powerful.”

“I want to make sure that I fulfill the reason why I was brought back. Helping others in any way that I can is really important to me so I'm fully stepping into the role of really helping people before they get Alzheimer's and dementia. I think it's a matter of lowering stress, looking at diet, lifestyle, and being proactive about not only their overall physical health, but their brain health as well.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Leah Marie in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 4th at 1pm EST and with Jim Masters on February 11th at 1pm EST

Tucson Arizona Woman Heals Herself of Fibromyalgia using Biofeedback

Tucson BIofeedback offers new hope for people suffering from Fibromyalgia and other Chronic Health Conditions

Freedom from Fibromyalgia

Biofeedback and Microcurrent Therapies could present a new frontier in Fibromyalgia treatment, rapidly healing tissue, removing pain and halting inflammation

Biofeedback and Microcurrent Therapy could offer new hope to people suffering with Fibromyalgia and other Chronic Health Conditions.”

— Dr. Anna Blessing

TUCSON, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, January 29, 2020 / — A Tucson woman who healed herself of Fibromyalgia using Biofeedback and Microcurrent therapy believes this type of treatment could offer new hope to people suffering with this dreaded diagnosis.

After suffering for years with debilitating chronic fatigue, crippling anxiety, migraine headaches 3-5 times a week and the chronic pain and depression associated with Fibromyalgia, Dr. Anna Blessing, PhD of Tucson Biofeedback, understands the condition all too well.

Even as case numbers rise, doctors still have little understanding about the causes and treatments of this dreadful condition.

When traditional methods failed to alleviate her suffering and natural approaches like chiropractic, acupuncture, nutrition and massage did little more than make a day easier Dr. Blessing, set out on a mission to heal herself.

Along the way, she came to understand the inner workings of Fibromyalgia and many other troubling conditions and ultimately found healing of her own. Today, she has been in permanent remission from Fibromyalgia and the associated conditions for almost 10 years and has since devoted her life to supporting the healing of others through her Biofeedback Clinics based in Tucson.

So, what did Dr. Blessing discover that transformed her and countless others’ health?

“It came down to first knowing that the Power that made the body heals the body when it has the proper tools and the interferences are removed. I knew God did not create our bodies to be like this” says Dr. Blessing. “This knowing threw me into years and thousands of hours of study and application that revealed three key aspects of healing.”

1. Histamine Intolerance and Mast Cell Dysfunction is a much bigger issue in the body’s breakdown than thought and has been present in every case Dr. Blessing has encountered. This explains why a person can be eating clean and taking the highest-grade supplements and still feel terrible. The body is sensitive to nutrients, foods and a host of other things that are continually triggering an inflammatory response. Tucson Biofeedback has developed a Biofeedback Protocol that de-sensitizes the body’s reactions to nutrients, food and other triggers.

2. It’s important to specifically target the nerves, spine, brain and limbic system to “reset” the body’s innate flow of energy using Biofeedback, Neurofeedback and Frequency Specific Microcurrent Therapies.

3. Releasing stored trauma is key. In every case some sort of trauma has occurred whether it be physical, emotional or chronic repetitive cellular trauma. Books like “The Body Keeps the Score” document how trauma impacts our health and well-being even if we don’t remember it.

Dr. Blessing says there is a growing number of medical evidence in published papers that further points to these three aspects and their connection to many health conditions, not just Fibromyalgia.

Board Certified Doctor of Naturophathy, Carolyn Waygood, ND says, "Medical researchers have proven that certain frequencies specifically stimulate the growth of nerves, bones, skin, capillaries, and ligaments."

Dr. Blessing and her team at Tucson Biofeedback have seen patients dealing with Fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions experience impressive recoveries. She says they don’t claim to offer a ‘cure’ for the condition or others like it but believes they are facilitators of the body’s natural and innate healing process.

“Our understanding is that there is no cure outside of our own miraculous body. The life force that beats the heart inside our chest, that blesses us with each precious day is the only thing that heals. Technological innovation has allowed the rapid advancement of new technology that supports our body’s innate intelligence to do this job effectively. We are but the facilitators and administrators of Frequency Therapies. The body does the rest.”

Carla A, a patient of Dr. Blessing who was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 9 years ago, was left feeling helpless and hopeless.

“After my treatment program with Dr. Blessing and Tucson Biofeedback, I felt completely renewed and refreshed. Like a different person! My zest for life has returned, my energy is better than it has ever been. I cannot believe how energetic I feel … so stable and positive, like I can rule the world! I am completely pain-free for the 1st time in 20 years and I feel like I finally have my life and health back!” she says.

“At Tucson Biofeedback, all our approaches and treatments are tailored to the unique individual and their health needs. Our procedures are non-invasive, which is excellent for people who are sensitive to pain and we currently have an 89% recovery rates for patients,” says Dr. Blessing.

House Passes a Resolution in Support of Iranian People’s Nationwide Uprising for a Free Iran, Condemns Oppressive Regime

House votes unanimously on H.Res.752 in support of the uprising in Iran

NCRI-US Welcomes the Unanimous Passage of House Resolution

Time has come for the world to recognize the right of the Iranians to change the repressive regime, establish a democratic, pluralistic & non-nuclear republic based on separation of religion & state.”

— Soona Samsami

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, USA, January 28, 2020 / — Washington, DC – January 28, 2020 — Ms. Soona Samsami, the U.S. Representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US), welcomed the unanimous passing of H.Res.752 entitled “Supporting the rights of the people of Iran to free expression, condemning the Iranian regime for its crackdown on legitimate protests, and for other purposes” in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“This timely bipartisan resolution sends an unequivocal and powerful message to the people of Iran that U.S. Congress fully supports them in their nationwide uprising for a free Iran and that it strongly condemns the massacre perpetrated by the Iranian regime in November,” Ms. Samsami said.

The bi-partisan House resolution was passed not long after the onset of the November uprising which spread to 191 cities in all of Iran’s 31 provinces. Following the regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s shoot-to-kill order, the security forces massacred more than 1,500 protesters – 724 of whom have been identified by the Iranian Resistance so far. Nevertheless, this uprising, “the most significant anti-government protests in Iran since June 2009,” shook the religious dictatorship to its foundations and is a major step towards its eventual downfall. “The uprising’s gains are irreversible; no matter how deep or wide the state suppression,” NCRI U.S. Rep. said.

The bipartisan resolution notes that the regime's security forces “have used lethal force” and “killed hundreds of people” in what it described as “the popular protests against the Iranian regime.” The resolution notes that “reports indicate that Iranian Government authorities have, in many instances, refused to return victims’ bodies to their families and that security forces have removed bodies from morgues and transferred them to un- known locations.”

The Resolution also notes that “in 1988, the Iranian regime carrying out the barbaric mass executions of thousands of political prisoners by hanging and firing squad for refusing to renounce their political affiliations and in some cases for possessing political reading material, including prisoners of conscience, teenagers, and pregnant women.” Some 30,000 political prisoners, majority of them affiliated with the Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), were executed during the 1988 massacre, described as “a clear case of crimes against humanity” by Amnesty International.

Ms. Samsami added: “The NCRI’s President-elect, Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, has repeatedly underscored that the slaughter of protesters in November was a manifest case of a crime against humanity and, therefore, the United Nations Security Council must take urgent action to halt the killings and suppression and secure the release of those arrested.” The Iranian Resistance “endorses the Resolution which ‘urges the Administration to work to convene emergency sessions of the United Nations Security Council and the United Nations Human Rights Council to condemn the ongoing human rights violations perpetrated by the Iranian regime and establish a mechanism by which the Security Council can monitor such violations,’” Samsami stressed.

Ms. Samsami added that Khamenei and his president Hassan Rouhani must be held accountable for crimes against humanity and a fact-finding mission must be sent to Iran to evaluate the scope of the crimes and examine the cases of those killed, wounded, or detained.

The Resolution underscores the fact that implementation of “a near-total shutdown of internet services, stopping nearly all means of online communications for people inside Iran” was intended “to preclude the sharing of images and videos of deadly violence being used by security forces.” The resolution “encourages the Administration to provide assistance to the Iranian people to have free and uninterrupted access to the Internet.”

The Resolution points out that “the Iranian regime was implicated in a March 2018 plot in Albania and June 2018 plot in France against Iranian opposition activists.” After the resolution was introduced in December in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, on January 15, 2020, Albania expelled two other agents of the Iranian regime who were operating under the cover of diplomats. The country’s foreign ministry released a statement in this regard, “declaring them ‘persona non-grata’ for conducting activities that go against their status and against the principles of the Vienna Convention for Diplomatic Relations.”

Ms. Samsami added that a regime’s senior diplomat is in jail in Belgium for masterminding the plot to bomb the annual 100,000-strong ‘Iran Freedom’ gathering of the Iranian Resistance, as are two of the regime’s intelligence agents in the U.S. for spying on officials of the NCRI.

Lauding the Resolutions’ support for “the right of Iranian dissidents to assemble, without fear of persecution and violence, whether in Iran or internationally,” Ms. Samsami called for increased vigilance regarding the regime’s terrorist plots against Iranian dissidents, including those in Europe and the United States.

Referring to the Resolution’s statement that “several laws provide authorities to designate and sanction elements of the Iranian regime involved in significant corruption or serious human rights abuses,” Samsami said that these Iranian regime’s officials must be sanctioned for their crimes and brought to justice by international tribunals. “We have identified 92 senior officials of the Iranian regime involved in the November 2019 suppression of the uprising in Iran; they all need to be sanctioned by the U.S. Government,” Samsami said.

The NCRI’s U.S. Representative welcomed the bipartisan initiative’s standing with the people of Iran who are engaged in legitimate protests against an “oppressive, corrupt regime” and its condemnation of the “regime’s serious human rights abuses against the Iranian people, significant corruption, and destabilizing activities abroad,” stating that “the time has come for the world to recognize the right of the Iranian people to change the repressive regime and establish a democratic, pluralistic and non-nuclear republic based on the separation of religion and state.”

On Jan. 15, the first Charity Coalition Luncheon of 2020 focused on setting and achieving goals in the New Year.

A goal starts with a thought and you formulate a plan to make it come true. It all begins with someone thinking about their goal and getting others to follow.”

— Joel Anderson, Deputy Executive Director, Clearwater Community Volunteers

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, January 28, 2020 / — On January 15, the first bi-monthly Tampa Bay Charity Coalition Luncheon of 2020 was held in the Fort Harrison Crystal Ballroom. Charities from garden clubs to coalitions for women’s care filled the room to network and learn how to set and reach goals for the New Year.

After a reception on the 10th floor terrace, guests were served a buffet-style lunch by the Fort Harrison’s five-star chefs and welcomed by the Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization, Clemence Chevrot, who served as the MC.

The featured charity for the month was the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida and their work in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian, directly helping over 600 Bahamians.

The Community Affairs Director then introduced Joel Anderson, the deputy executive director for the Clearwater Community Volunteers, a nonprofit organization that organizes annual events for children and families in the Tampa Bay area. Anderson gave an educational talk on how to set and achieve goals for one’s nonprofit going into the New Year.

“Most of us know a goal as ‘I’m going to stop smoking,’” Anderson told the audience. “A goal starts with a thought and you formulate a plan to make it come true. It all begins with someone thinking about their goal and getting others to follow.”

Following Anderson’s talk, guests shared their goals for their nonprofit with the rest of the group. This was followed by speed networking, before the event closed, to help make those goals come true.

City Church Gastonia celebrates Grand Opening
Exciting Name change Bethlehem to City Church

Gastonia, NC: Today City Church of Gastonia specializing contemporary music and powerful teaching, announced that they have changed their name to City Church. After being recognized as Bethlehem Church for over 30 years, the church announced it was time to share a new vision for Gaston County. A church for the city in the middle of market place, a loving place, a place that helps the hurting and poor of our city.

Of the church’s recent vision, City Churches Lead Pastor Dickie Spargo said “ We should be a city a hill, and light in the darkness of our community. A church that stays within its four walls isn’t a church at all. The Church is not a noun, it’s a verb…An Action verb!”

To accomplish the momentous change, City Church planned and executed the following:
• Rename our three campuses, New Hope formerly south, Fairview formerly West and Separk formerly North.
• Making sure the vision statements a communicated: “City Church a church for the City” and “A light in the City”.

About City Church,:, is one church with different locations based in Gastonia, NC. Founded in the early 50s, City Church is lead by Pastor Dickie Spargo, and reaches thousands every weekend. Grand Opening weekend of February 2nd.

Chris David Muggler Discusses the Importance of Seeking the Lord

Chris David Muggler Indian Trail

INDIAN TRAIL, NC, UNITED STATES, January 27, 2020 / — With the new year and new decade upon us, multitudes of people are embarking on a journey toward positive change, whether it’s being a better partner or parent, getting healthier, or achieving professional goals. As most successful individuals will tell you, one of the most important keys to achieving your goals, no matter how small or large, is to seek guidance and inspiration. And there is no better advisor than the Almighty. Chris David Muggler knows this well and wishes to enlighten others.

Today, Chris David Muggler is a devout man of God continuously seeking to better understand His word and apply it to his own life in order to be and do better. However, like many, Chris Muggler was not always devout. He explains, “My personal Christian testimony is not my own. It’s another glimpse of God’s grace being brought to another broken sinner through His Holy Spirit. I grew up with interests in Christianity but was swayed away from it. I lived for attention and love but they never seemed to fulfill my desires in totality.”

Temptations and distractions are everywhere and it is understandable that many people, particularly young people, can find it challenging to sit quietly and humbly to truly hear God’s word and take it to heart, much less apply His teachings by living a pious life. Fortunately, Chris David Muggler was persuaded to attend a Campus Outreach meeting in his sophomore year at UNC Charlotte. It was then that he truly opened his heart and received God’s love and enlightenment for the first time. In the weeks and months that followed, he found the fulfillment he had been yearning for and became a changed man.

Chris Muggler now attends the Christ Covenant Church in Matthew, NC. He advises that attending weekly church services and surrounding himself with likeminded people who share his faith, beliefs, and priorities, has been paramount to his continuing journey of self-improvement.

As author Ann Voskamp said, “Too often we want clarity and God wants us to come closer.”

As humans, it is our natural inclination to question, to seek answers. As Chris David Muggler and many others have been blessed to learn, it is God that has those answers. By embracing Him and choosing Him as our leader, we gain not only wisdom but love.
