Delilah says her show is a “safety zone where listeners take off their armor, slip into a ‘Mr. Rogers’ cardigan, sit around the electronic hearth and share their secrets.”
She adds that her audience is “just like me and the two women working on the show, who were once listeners. We are single parents who work hard to strike a balance between family and work life. We also enjoy our friendships and remember to laugh as much as possible.”
Delilah is also an author whose latest book, “Love Matters,” was released in October of 2008. Published by Harlequin Books, Delilah shares her perspective on love and includes stories from her radio listeners.
As a single mother of 12 children, nine of whom she adopted, Delilah has established a foundation called Point Hope as a voice for forgotten children everywhere. The immediate focus of the Foundation is on refugee children in Ghana and on special needs children in the foster care system nationwide and in her neighborhood of White Center in Seattle. Delilah also recently became a spokesperson for Together for Kids, a national alliance of children’s hospitals dedicated to building a healthier future for America’s kids. She helps raise money and awareness for the organization, which provides an urgently-needed national fundraising mechanism for its member hospitals, helping them care for seriously ill children and tackle the toughest health issues facing all kids.
Daily broadcasts, caring for her children, running a foundation, writing books, traveling and public speaking add up to a very busy life for Delilah. And she wouldn’t have it any other way.
