Hello!  Today is the 6th Anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York City.  We spent time this morning reflecting on our memories of 9/11 and talking with listeners about their memories.  I visited Ground Zero in 2005 and will never forget the quiet and sadness that surrounded the area.  In a city of noise and busyness, Ground Zero is a somber and surreal place and if you're able to visit it, I'd suggest you do so. Dr. Joey joined us for Part 2 of his 3 Part Series "Save the Cake, Save the Marriage - 3 Sweet...

Good Morning!I'm late in posting and I apologize.  I've had a crazy morning.  My son, Ben,  didn't feel well this morning, the drive into the station was difficult due to the rain, and I've felt behind all morning as a result.  It's 9:45 am and it feels like it should be 9:45 pm - just one of those days, I guess.  We took calls this morning from listeners who shared with us how they treat themselves.  I like to read a magazine or a book, get a pedicure or manicure and go on a hunt for a great bargain.  Our callers told...

Good Morning!We wrapped up our conversation about self-gifting - or as a friend of mine kindly refers to it - sanity gifting.  Regardless of what side of the fence you are on, we realized that, to some degree, we all have coping methods for everyday chores and tasks.  (You should see Mark's car!  I fondly refer to it as E-Z Mart Central! HA!)  Thanks, again, for all of the wonderful calls of encouragement and to those of you who called in to disagree with us!  :) We talked with Rush of Fools this morning.  In case you missed the 2 segments, you...

Hello!We had a fun morning!!  Mark and I were talking before the show about his wife, Tiff's, recent trip to the grocery store.   Her list was long, the store was busy and she came back less than thrilled about her 2-hour adventure.  I told Mark that what I do to "reward" myself for a successful shopping trip is to buy myself a small token of appreciation - lipstick, earrings, a magazine.  The self-gift is never large and usually under $5.  Well, this completely threw him off.  He had NO IDEA that this sort of reward system even existed and he challenged...

Today's postive thought from Compassion International founder Wes Stafford:  "Reward the effort, not the score.  Whenever children do their best, cheer!  Whenever they fail, pick them up!".Our thanks to Rhett Lashley from High School Sports the Magazine for sharing about the inspiring, positive stories in the new September issue.  If you are looking for something to do this weekend, here are a few ideas from this week's Family Fun Calendar:Washington County Fair – @ the fairgrounds in Fayetteville – ends at midnight on Saturday.  Midnight Madness is Friday Night – from midnight to 3am.  New this year – a tractor pull on Saturday...

Happy Thursday!!Just last week Dr. Joey told Mark and me that 60-70% of employees are not happy in their work environment.  We wanted to see if that statistic was true for Northwest Arkansas, as well!  After many wonderful calls, I'm starting to think that NWA might not have been included in the national poll!  :)  Mark and I had such a fun time this morning talking to nurses, teachers, a credit union employee, a McDonald's, Sonic and Starbucks employee, a dump truck driver, a mommy nanny and many Northwest Arkansas Moms who all LOVE their jobs!  Thank you for all of your...

Good Morning! I shared this Positive Thought around 6:20 a.m.  It was written by Charles Swindoll and is titled "Attitude"....."The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company ... a church ...
