Jason interviews Special Featured Guest Denise Alexander-Pyle.   Denise Alexander-Pyle, after more than 40 years as a successful lawyer in Birmingham, MI, a suburb of Detroit, faced family demands that brought her back to Marion, IN. It was there, after limiting her legal practice to a minimum, that she elected to focus on her book that had long been incubating.   During the two years when Denise taught Sunday school in the 1990s to 15-year-olds at a reformed Jewish temple her passion for Judeo-Christian ethics and living the Ten Commandments in a world gone awry crystalized. It culminated in her book The Power of 1(0), a Guide to Living the Ten Commandments in Modern Times. The (0) is in parenthesis because she believes that even without the Ten Commandments, we have the Golden Rule to guide us and the underlying principle for all we do.   Her premise is that -- if we peel back the layers and deeply understand the meaning of each of the Ten Commandments on multiple levels--we would truly recognize just how vital it is for us to adhere to them as our “rules of the road” for peaceful co-existence and survival on this planet....just as true today as it was in Biblical times.  Denise tries to incorporate these principles in her life. Community and public service is important to her. She has served as a planning commissioner for two different communities, a council woman, and on several non-profit and professional boards. She has received the Circle of Hope award for her service to families and victims of child abuse.
