Randy Rolfe's Radio Show

"Family First"

Almost two years of weekly interview with top family and lifestyle experts, first heard on VoiceAmerica Health & Wellness Channel

On Family First, you’ll hear about all aspects of family life. What could be more important than your family’s health and relationships?

Our show will bring you experts from around the world who can offer new ideas to help you find the easiest, most effective, and most fun ways to promote your family’s well-being, whether it’s balancing home and work, your child’s schooling, or getting chores done, or any other family challenge. I have helped people with diverse topics, from how teenage moms can still have a future or how warring sisters can let go of anger to how the family of Terry Nichols could deal with the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Our experts are from many different fields, from the USA, Germany, New Zealand, and elsewhere,  and may be well known or newly emerging as authorities in their fields.  

    "Randy Rolfe is an exquisite radio host, with a passion for putting families first.  She has tremendous insights about parenting, family, and living a life of balance, along with a passion for sharing them! I recommend Family First Radio and Randy Rolfe." Charmaine Hammond, International Speaker and Best Selling Author.

    Thank you, Randy—especially for asking what I think were highly relevant questions and then giving me the time to respond in some detail. You seemed to be genuinely interested in hearing what I had to say, rather than using me as a stimulus to make whatever points you wanted to make. Thanks also for reinforcing some of my key points with your own examples, which gave the listeners a break from my ramblings. I pictured the audience as overhearing a conversation between two friends, rather than listening to a single speaker, and that felt much better to me. You provide a great service.” Peter Bergson, Author and Co-Founder of Open Connections.

The main focus of Family First is on minimizing the likelihood of problems arising in the first place. We emphasize how the little choices you make each day, as a parent, spouse, child, relative, or friend, can have big effects over time. Whether it’s talking about tough issues with your partner, handling an angry child, getting health or financial advice, getting your child to eat better, losing weight, or finding fun ways to relax, this is the place to come for a helping hand.

Family First is broadcast live every Friday at 1 PM Pacific Time (2 pm MT, 3 pm CT, 4 pm ET) on the VoiceAmerica Health & Wellness Channel, at http://www.voiceamerica.com/show/1916/family-first. Family First is also archived there for later listening, and for download, podcast, MP3, apps, bookmarking, and more.
