December 20, 2021

About Host, Karla Nivens:

After graduating from Texas Tech University, Karla earned her teaching certificate and began her career as an elementary music teacher in the Dallas Independent School District. She also sang for Grammy award-winning Gospel recording artists Kirk Franklin, CeCe Winans, Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Crystal Lewis, Willie Neal Johnson, John P. Kee, Alvin Slaughter, Tamela Mann, and Michael Buble’. She's traveled the world and ministered to diverse audiences in music. During her travels, she had the opportunity to sing on the Jay Leno Show, Soul Train, the Stellar Awards, and the Billy Graham Crusade with Kirk Franklin.

She took a hiatus while staying at home with her children for several years and re-entered the workforce as a worship leader at Highland Park United Methodist Church. Karla has worshipped with Highland Park for the past 17 years. Currently, Karla is building the Racial Justice ministry for Highland Park UMC. Karla has also served as an adjunct instructor for Visible Music College and in 2014 released a CD entitled “True Worship.” Five years ago a good friend suggested she turn her heart toward fulfilling the Great Commission. Karla began traveling on yearly mission trips to Costa Rica and Africa. On those trips the Lord began to awaken the motto He gave her in college – “Influencing Culture for the Good of the Kingdom.” As an answer to this awakening, Karla and Dr. Roosevelt founded Karla Nivens Entertainment. Under this umbrella, Karla partnered with Love Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, started a small group for women, and a radio show both titled “Every Heart Every Woman.” Karla encourages her audience to quiet the noise and restore balance in their daily lives through inspirational entertainment. The show airs Sundays as a podcast on iTunes and Podbean weekly. The show also airs in video on YouTube. In 2019, Karla released her book, True Leaders with Heart, packed with weekly meditations for leaders.

August 23, 2021

About Guest, Rah Kalon

A self-love activist, life coach, and specialist. Rah works with individuals seeking to re-establish a loving relationship with themselves within, and outside of, social standards because we are more than what our social influences have taught us. Her guiding philosophy is Self-love is a daily practice, not just a once a month spa day, and when this practice has been embraced, its healing can help us navigate all other aspects of our lives - Relationships thrive; Opportunities are recognized; & Trauma is processed. 

After receiving her Masters in Clinical Counseling, Rah Kalon chose Self-love coaching as a way to fill the cups of countless others with something she has an abundance of - love. And this isn’t just any love. This is Radical Self L.O.V.E., she uses her energy of acceptance, warmth, and empathy to assist others in unlocking this within themselves. Growth is exhilarating when you are growing with someone who loves you, so allow me the honor of re-introducing you to yourself.
