Staff Reports

Anthony Saude, a talk radio host at “Men of Impakt,” has always thought of starting a positive movement to reestablish Christian values and ideals as things for youth to aspire to. Concerned about a growing trend of people rejecting traditional morals and virtues, Mr. Saude has become motivated to effect positive change in the world.

“We taught our children to look at the wrong heroes,” says Mr Saude. If we continue down this path, “we’re headed to Hell in a handbasket.” Mr. Saude believes that by showing the world good, ordinary men who do the right thing and “take care of the kids [and] treat [their] wives well,” he can inspire a new generation of Christian men who uphold the virtues of Jesus and the Bible.

By “modeling ourselves after Jesus,” we can become a “Mighty Man of Valor” just as the Bible says, says Mr. Saude. We need to “fight outside pressures to do what makes you feel good” and instead do what’s right by “following Jesus, doing the right thing, and making it known.”

Although his radio show “Men of Impakt” features men, Mr. Saude makes it clear that he does not intend to suggest that there are no “Women of Impakt” but rather it is men who should bear the responsibility of fixing a morally corrupt world. Because “women did not create sex trafficking, porn, [and] domestic violence,” it is “Men [who] screwed it up, [men who should] fix it.”

From a Bible study group at church, Mr. Saude partnered with Shawn Kelly at Hope Radio 24/7 start “Men of Impakt.” Next week, the radio talk show will feature Eric Ray, a father of three boys who has been distinguished as a positive influence to his friends at church and to the community. The feature will be part of a series titled, “Raising God’s Children in a God Challenged World” and will bring listeners a chance to learn about marriage, health, and finance from a Christian perspective.

Men Of Impakt

By Anthony Saude

Wow, what a month February turned out to be for me personally, spiritually and professionally. It was not easy but I will take joy in all things.

On the radio show I got to speak with former Los Angeles Ram defensive end Reggie Doss on the air. I remember watching Reggie play football in the Super bowl against the Pittsburgh Steelers. I was a big Rams fan at the time and Vince Ferragamo was the next coming for a lot of us.

Reggie was a 7th round pick out of a little NAIA school and didn’t even play football until high school. He got married and adopted 3 young boys through the foster care system all after he turned 45 years of age. His story from a young age is truly a one of inspiration and faith.

Another show my guest was Sean Oliver, he had some great advice on how to reach our full potential both personally and professionally. Around these parts we have come to know him simply as “Master Yoda in Human Form.” He was able to give us some great insight on how fear dictates our actions more that we may understand and how that might be holding us back from the life God intended for us.

On March 1st my guest was a new friend of mine Pastor Brian Briggs. What a testimony this guy brought to the show. Brian is ex military turned pastor. We talked about his addictions and how he was able to overcome them to become ordained.

I hope you men out there were able to listen in February it was a month that true over comers took center stage to give us all hope that all things are possible.

Ordinary men living extraordinary lives.

The Traceys

By Anthony Saude

Jim and Kristin Tracey of Eastvale have adopted, Kaden, a 10-year-old boy from the foster care system. They are in the process of adopting 2 others children, a girl and a boy. None of them are infants so they come with problems from the lives that they have led so far. What makes this story so beautiful is that the Tracey’s had raised 2 children of their own to adulthood before they started this process. The story began when Kristin, always looking for ways she can help the marginalized, went to a foster kid’s camp.  Royal Family Kids’ Camps, Inc. RFKC, Inc. is a network of camps, children’s clubs, and child mentoring for abused, abandoned and neglected children in the foster care, system. RFK founded in 1985 by Wayne and Diane Tesch.

Kristin fell in love with the cause, but most of all she fell in love with the children she met at one of the camps. Taking some into her home and adopting them sounded very normal to her but these were not normal times in the Tracey house. Jim was unemployed at the time and had been for an extended amount of time. They finished their parenting responsibilities they had signed up for over 18 years earlier. I loved being a parent but it is a tough job and signing up for more years after the end of the game is just a little nuts in my book.  Being a man, Jim may have been having those thoughts as well some anxiety about the financial responsibility it would create in their lives. In the beginning Jim may not have been as enthusiastic as Kristin but he has always said “it is biblical”. Jim is the cautious one and Kristin is full speed ahead with both feet, no in matter how cold the water might be. Kristen prayed for Jim to share her enthusiasm and Jim prayed for understanding and answers. Making a decision of this magnitude would be difficult for any male in a perfect situation. The Tracey’s circumstances were anything but perfect. “Every time I prayed I kept getting the same answer, trust God.” said Jim. When my son said, “if that is the answer you keep getting from God, wouldn’t it be disobedient to not follow through? Jim took it to heart stepped out in faith, put his fears behind him and hasn’t regretted one second.

82.2% of child abuse perpetrators were found to be between the ages of 18-44, of which 39.6% were recorded to be between the ages of 25-34. In the United States, more than 4 children die from child abuse and neglect on a daily basis. Over 70% of these children are below the age of 3.

Riverside County has 4,300 children in foster care, 341 of whom are in group homes.

Approximately 3.5 million reports are made to child protective services annually concerning the safety and well-being of approximately 6.4 million children.

A nationally estimated 679,000 children were found to be victims of child abuse or neglect. (1)

Of these children, 79.5 % were neglected, 18.0 % were physically abused, and 9.0 % were sexually abused.

Approximately 1,520 children died due to abuse or neglect every year.

Eighty four percent of foster children will become parents within a few years after reaching adulthood, potentially repeating the cycle of abuse.

Jim once told me “if one family in every church in America took in one foster child there wouldn’t be any left in the system”. Seems simple. Google foster care in your area and throw your hat in the ring for a child’s sake. You know who you are, you have been thinking about it for years. It is that little voice in the back of your mind that just won’t go away. Jump in with both feet and take a chance on a kid that needs your help, you won’t regret it.

Men Of Impakt

By Anthony Saude

We are going to start the New Year off with a new column here in the Eastvale Publication. Men of Impakt started as a bible study group that meets every Saturday Morning for 6:30-8 a.m. at Starbucks on De Palma Ave off of the 15 freeway, Indian Truck Trail exit. Due to the impact that has made in my life I decided that we need to recognize some of the real heroes in this country, men of impact. So every week I host an internet Radio Show on Thursday afternoon on Hope Radio 24/7 from 5-6 p.m it is also broadcast live on Facebook. The men I have as guests are making a positive impact in the lives of their families, community or even the world. You see, the real heroes in this world aren’t found on the stage, court, field or the Forbes 500 list, that doesn’t mean that they don’t exist there. Are you treating you wife kindly? Are you treating your children kindly? Do you love your neighbor? Are you happy about what you have or do you dwell on what you don’t?

Men in this country are under attack and mostly for good reason but with divorce, drug addiction and pornography, to name a few, being at an all time high a lot have not learned how to be a good man. The show is just a reminder that there are good men out there in our everyday lives. Men willing to put in the work and help some of the men out that may have come from a home with no role model or a bad one.

On December 4th I had Robert Fultz as a guest, a pastor at Saddleback Church in Corona, whose hometown was Charlottesville Virginia. We talked about the existence of racism and in this country and the lack of real discussions we have about it, discussions that revolve around information and not emotions. December 21st saw Cannon Pearson an attorney and business man who has been married for 22 years. We talked about goals in our personal life and our marriage. He said it is normal for us to set goals at the workplace and about money but we don’t set goal for our marriage. On December 28th a young man name Parker Ray became my first returning guest. He came back after his first semester of college to discuss the challenges that college has for his faith, his resolve and having a girlfriend that lives so far away.

You can listen to all of the recorded live shows at http://www.hoperadio247.com there are lots of other shows on the website that bring hope to many different walk of life.
