What Would Our Founding Fathers Think?
As the nation faces continued unemployment, global economic crises, and national security threats, Americans appear to be more politically divided than ever. As a well-known constitutional champion and founder of the non-profit, Constituting America, Janine Turner has appeared as a political pundit on FOX News, CNN, and numerous national news programs to discuss America and its founding principles. A frequent contributor on Politico, FOX Opinion, and The Daily Caller, Turner has written 90 essays on the US Constitution and The Federalist Papers. Drawing on her constitutional research and knowledge, she poses the question, If our founding fathers returned to see the America of today, what would they think of the direction in which our country is headed? And what can each one of us do to uphold the US Constitution and the freedoms it guarantees to all Americans?
Life on the Front Lines of the Culture Wars
America is at a crossroads. As liberals and conservatives debate the future direction of our nation, many conservatives say Hollywood has glamorized and promoted a wide range of behaviors seen as detrimental to the nation’s moral and social fabric: from violence and profanity to graphic and gratuitous sexual content, Hollywood – and its stable of politically active, liberal celebrities and producers – has launched a frontal assault, conservatives say, on traditional American values. Janine Turner is no stranger to this battle. A celebrated TV and film actress, she is one of the few celebrities to openly proclaim her conservative beliefs. Drawing on her own experiences, Turner discusses how her career has suffered as a result of her refusal to remain silent in the face of Hollywood’s liberal monopoly, and offers her perspective on the current state of America’s culture wars.
The US Constitution: America’s Guiding Principles
Author, actress, and constitutional champion Janine Turner has appeared on America’s most popular national news shows to discuss current affairs, politics, and the resurgence of interest in the US Constitution and America’s founding principles. As the founder of the non-profit foundation, Constituting America, she has launched a national initiative aimed at engaging America’s youth and citizens in learning about the Constitution. Turner has written scores of essays, blogs, and commentaries, both on this cherished document as well as The Federalist Papers. Drawing on her constitutional knowledge and research, she discusses what everyday Americans can do to embrace and support the Constitution today.
Ten Steps to Triumph
As a top model and celebrated TV and film actress, Janine Turner has amassed an impressive list of screen credits while expanding her career as an author, radio host, and founder of the non-profit, Constituting America. A Wilhelmina model at 15 and a Hollywood actress at 17, Turner began her career at an early age. But success didn’t come easily. Along the way, she faced numerous obstacles, including the cutthroat competition and repeated rejection. In fact, Turner recalls being down to her last $8 when she won the lead role in the acclaimed television series Northern Exposure. She even once calculated that on her way up the Hollywood career ladder, she received 10,000 “Nos” before achieving success. In this motivational presentation, Turner draws on her own experiences to outline the Ten Steps to Triumph and how each of us can define our destiny, turn tribulations into triumphs, and persevere with praise.
Finding the Joy in Single Parenthood
Actress and author Janine Turner is best known for her roles on Northern Exposure, Friday Night Lights, and in movies like Steel Magnolias and Cliffhanger. But her most challenging – and rewarding – role is undoubtedly being a single parent to her daughter, Juliette. Drawing on her Washington Post best-selling book, Holding Her Head High: 12 Single Mothers Who Championed Their Children and Changed History, Turner recounts the struggles of juggling multiple careers as an actress, teacher, author, and radio host while running a working ranch and raising her daughter. It’s a struggle with which millions of single parents can relate, and with humor and enthusiasm Turner shares her secrets for finding the joy of single parenting amid the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Keeping the Faith in Troubled Times
As an actress, author, and political commentator, Janine Turner would seem to have it all. Yet like all Americans, she has struggled with both inner demons and external forces throughout her life. From the highly competitive world of professional modeling to life in the Hollywood fast lane to single motherhood, she has relied upon her strong Christian faith to strengthen her resolve in troubled times. Turner has shared her message of hope and faith with numerous churches and faith-based organizations, and in this presentation shares stories from her own life as well as the spiritual lessons that have comforted and sustained her.
Alcoholism is Ancient
Millions of Americans struggle with drug and alcohol dependency. At a time when a faltering economy, high unemployment, and national security threats heighten the stress and anxiety felt by many Americans, substance abuse issues can become more prevalent, causing individuals to spiral out of control, destroying lives and families through a never-ending cycle of dysfunction, denial, and violence. Yet substance abuse is by no means a modern problem. Passages from the Bible recount the destructive influence alcohol can have on a person’s ability to maintain healthy, loving relationships. As a recovering alcoholic with two decades of sobriety, Janine Turner discusses her own battle with alcoholism while sharing a powerful and inspiring message of hope and faith that substance abuse can be successfully conquered.
Women’s Health Issues
Actress, author, and radio show host Janine Turner has given numerous speeches on a variety of health issues that affect women, including breast cancer and substance abuse. A former ballet dancer and apprentice to the Fort Worth Ballet, Turner’s success in the modeling and acting fields came hand in hand with tremendous pressures to be extremely thin. She has also struggled with alcoholism. Drawing on her own experiences – including her practice of Christian yoga, or “Christoga” – Turner moves, motivates, and inspires audiences with her personal stories and heartfelt strategies for achieving physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
