Walking at the Speed of Light is a perceptive offering of memoir and reflections that can be taken one at a time and provide insight and healing for all kinds of darkness. Although many books have addressed grief and depression related to Christian faith, a book that gives readers a Christian perspective on these subjects through forward thinking including organ donation and positive life building offers a unique opportunity. Walking at the Speed of Light begins with the death of Cheryl J. Heser’s thirty-three-year-old son, Joshua, the grief experiences that followed, and the organ donation that affected the lives of over 100 people.


We talked about: the Grand Opening for the Amish Store in Reeseville (this weekend: 3/1 and 3/2), fairy tales, and pistachios. Recipes shared: All Fruit Smoothies. Web recipe: Pistachio Bread, Piggly Wiggly recipe: Orange Tilapia in Parchment-see RECIPES tab below.

Today we covered the following topics: pistachios, the New Amish Store opening this weekend and fairy tales. Recipes given: Pistachio Bread from website as “recipe of the day”.

Written by a leader for leaders, The Millennial Whisperer shares proven, profit-driven strategies for leading millennials in the workforce.

The Millennial generation is the largest, most diverse generation in the history of the United States. They will make up 75 percent of the workforce by 2030. Unfortunately, Millennials made a poor first impression in the business world, developing the reputation of being lazy, entitled, selfish, and disloyal. The truth is, Millennials are no lazier or more entitled, selfish, or disloyal than any previous generation; they just grew up with different experiences than older generations and are motivated by different things.

In The Millennial Whisperer, Chris Tuff puts into context the ways Millennials differ from previous generations and shares practical steps companies and leaders can take to immediately boost productivity without building an office full of ping pong tables, beer kegs, and participation trophies. Chris provides practical ways for leaders to build a corporate culture in which Millennials can thrive, establish effective rewards systems at lower cost, address disciplinary methods effectively, and more! Get ready to turn your conference room back into a conference room, bring the beer kegs home for your next birthday bash, and put the participation trophies in the trash where they belong.


Chris Tuff was not able to connect with us this morning. We’ll try to reschedule. We talked about: Snow, getting stuck in the driveway, backing out of driveways, new layout in my on-air space, frequent questions about prescription meds. Recipes we shared: Kahlua Fruit Dip, Kahlua Brie, and Fruit and Nut Freezer Oatmeal Cups.
