The first concert I ever saw was Donny Osmond when I was 10 years old. When I was 19, I saw my second concert, The Commodores, and Lionel Richie was the lead singer. Ever since then, I've wanted to see Lionel again but didn't have the opportunity until last week.   My girlfriend, Heather and I were lucky enough to get third row seats!

Ryan Roe Travels to China for a Mission Trip

Last Reply by complication 1405914024.33 | Started by Mary Beth Roe in Beauty Banter, Hosts & Personalities, Among Friends

The day after Ryan's high-school graduation party, he left for China on a cultural mission trip with a group from our church. Our son, Eric, went on the same trip eight years earlier and had such a great experience. Here's Ryan's story:   "I’m sure it takes a lot of guts for a mom to let her son travel to the opposite side of the earth at my age, but luckily I’ve been blessed with a mom that has the guts to stand in front of millions of viewers every day. I couldn’t be more thankful to have experienced the things I did in China. My experience in China was exciting, hu... Continue Reading
