My guest for The Happy Half Hour #6 is my friend, Gloria Furman. Gloria and her family live in Dubai, where they started a church. She was a fan favorite back in the early days when she joined me for episode #19. You can listen to that show here. She's back today to catch up and share with me about her latest book, Missional Motherhood. Guys, I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Please pick up a copy today, and send one to a friend if you're feeling virtuous.

And of course, true to Happy Half Hour form, we go through our usual questions about her favorite app, her key to success, how she recharges and her pet peeve. I love a good pet peeve, but I think Gloria needs a new one, because hers is easily solvable. Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}

The guest for The Happy Half Hour #5 is Jessica Turner. She was on The Happy Hour back in the stone ages on episode #30. On today's show, we catch up and talk about everything from her favorite TV series, books and app. She shares that she recharges by reading and has learned how to do that in her normal days during times of waiting (did you know that on average, we are waiting on something or someone for 45-60 minutes every day!?). And finally, I learned that her pet peeve of incorrect grammar is probably going to keep her from reading this post, so I am pretty sure I can say anything I want. It was so fun catching up with Jessica. I think you'll love hearing from her again.

If you have tuned in for these first few episodes of The Happy Half Hour, you know that I am asking the same few questions of my guests. If you have any questions you'd like for me to consider asking, please feel free to leave a comment! I love hearing from you, and hearing what you think about the show. Thanks so much for listening!
