Wild Woman on Focus on the Family This Week


I am not sure WHY in the world they let me on this professional large broadcast again. I had the pleasure of doing two shows on Focus on the Family last year and we had such a great time. I was able to share six of the virtues from my book. And I line danced, in a pirate hat.


I guess they were amused – so I got invited back.

And two episodes are airing this week! July 13 and 14. You can listen online – PART 1 and PART 2 for a LIMITED time and then you have to buy the episodes.


Be sure to listen for these key moments:

  • When my friend Jim Daly pushes back on my several times and I’m not ready for it. That was fun.
  • When I name the Fullers and the Dalys for their Family Olympics
  • And count the times I say “UM” because I’m a professional you see

Here is what I have learned over the last couple years. I am not an expert in parenting. My kids are 7 and 9 for goodness sakes. I do however have a HUGE PASSION for a message God has laid on my heart. I believe in making virtues, love and laughter a daily part of MY life and your life. I believe our kids CAN experience God in a real way and they can light up the world. I have seen it.

So, when I get asked to go share that message – I go. I try to be myself. And sometimes I embarrass myself. And don’t have all the answers and that’s ok. I ask God to speak through me and use my words to stir in the hearts of parents – so that kids may know HIM!

I thoroughly enjoy the entire team at Focus on the Family. They care about families so much and equipping us all to walk this journey together.

Here are some other fun photos and moments from my trip. We taped this back in May.

DID YOU KNOW THEY have a SLIDE FOR KIDS at Focus? Me neither. Naturally I asked to go down it. In a dress. And I found out that John Fuller’s daughter worked at the slide. So, duh. I made her slide with me. Then, photo in head gear.


Anytime I visit Colorado Springs – that means catching up with my friend and agent Blythe Daniel. This girl IS AMAZING.
