"It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes responsible children to keep the village on the map."
Hello, and welcome to my domain. My name is Jeffery A. Faulkerson, and I am a social entrepreneur based in the Triangle, North Carolina area. I am also the host of the Internet talk radio show "FIRM...but fair" with Jeffery A. Faulkerson (www.blogtalkradio.com/firmbutfair/) Check it out. It streams live every Sunday at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
If you're into reading, you may want to preview my new book Raising My V.O.I.C.E. (Verbalizing Orderly Impressions through Creative Endeavors). It is essentially a collection of selected writings that chroncile my lifelong quest to understand why we humans focus so much on our differences, not enough on our similarities. You can purchase a copy at http://www.buybooksontheweb.co m/ (Author keyword search: Faulkerson).
If you are the parent of a child between the ages of five and 10, you might be interested in my new IT'S GOOD TO BE GOLDEN Children's Book Series. The three books included in the series are The Stranger in the Shadows, The Story of Henry the Heart and Golden Innovations. I initially wrote these stories for my then three-year-old son, but I'm now sharing them with the world. Learn more about these titles at http://www.publishamerica.com/ and http://www.lulu.com/ (Author keyword search: Faulkerson).
I too believe it takes a village to raise a child. But I also believe it takes responsible children to keep the village on the map. That's why I have been a devoted husband to my wife for over 15 years and a stay-at-home parent to our four-year-old son for the past two and a half years.
Thanks again for stopping by. Be blessed, and continue to be blessings.

Another interracial couple a white male and Native American female and lesbian a... (continue reading)
On Thursday, July 10, I was a featured guest on Derek Eady's blogtalkradio show It Can't Just Be Me httpwww.blogtalkradio.comEadyM edia. This experience was a truly positive one, as Derek posed questions about the state of the black family that made me pull from both my personal and professional lives. Today's blog is a followup to this conversation. There were a number of things that I wanted to say but didn't get a chance to because of time constraints. If I had been allowed to speak outside...
