“Loving, Caring, & Sharing” Radio Program

By | January 4, 2013

I’m to be guest tonight, Friday, January 4, at 7 p.m. Central Time, on the “Loving, Caring and Sharing” radio broadcast. As they say, “Turn up the sound and tune in” at

Host for the program is Steve DeLoach and we’ll go traipsing down whatever paths he chooses. But he has known me and my work for years, and his wife Colleen reads everything I write that she can get her hands on, so no telling where we’ll wander–maybe cave exploring, or my dog, Pal, or Muhammad Ali, or ???  But, one way or the other, we’ll talk about matters that are important to you and those you care about. I imagine we’ll discuss the importance of story telling in the bonding of a family and shaping its values. Also matters like scrapbooking and keeping a family journal. I wouldn’t be surprised if Steve wants to know how Lisa and I have woven family lore into our best-selling novels.

I do hope you’ll tune in. Oh, yes–and that you’ll tell others!

Kids look at the world with fresh eyes…

Alexander Graham Bell is said to have commented, “I love to talk with children. They look at the world with fresh eyes.” The following selection certainly demonstrates that they do. They not only have “fresh eyes,” they combine acute interest in what is going on around them with their limited experience and understanding–with the result being some definitely interesting observations!

I don’t know who compiled this group of answers by children regarding mothers, but I’m sure glad they recorded them for us. Enjoy!
