Oh my goodness! My heart is full and over the moon with gratefulness from being with Kathie Lee and Hoda on the “Today” show this week. It was amazing! Was I really on TV or just chatting with new friends?!? They were so sweet and gracious. Thankful. If you missed it on Wednesday, you can watch it here, sweet sisters!
Will you be joining me for our first-ever Bistro Book Club?
I sure hope so! Together in my Bible Study Bistro Facebook Group, we’ll be going through my book, Invisible: How You Feel Is Not Who You Are, and I saved a seat just for you.
So, here are five reasons you want to join my new Bistro Book Club!
What do you like about yourself?
Oh, girl, sometimes liking ourselves is tough to do. It’s often easier to pinpoint our weaknesses.
Have you heard of Upright Go? It’s a posture pod, and I’ve been wearing one lately.
I stick it to my spine, push the button, and it either trains me or tracks me as I try to stand up a little taller and straighter.
Several years ago, my friend Lisa texted me to say she was making me a Christmas gift. She wouldn’t tell me what it was, but she did ask, “If one word could become a reality in your life, what would it be?”
Of course, I wanted to pick the perfect word. So, I texted Lisa back, asking her to clarify. She responded with, “You pick the word you most want as a reality in your life. Only you know what it means to you.”
Girl, I have to say this took me a while! Mostly because I was embarrassed to admit the one word that kept coming to mind.
“Wanna do a concert in my hometown?” my friend, Lori, asked.
It was 1988, and I’d just recorded a CD. Lori thought it would be great if I could sing at some churches in the tiny Mississippi town she’d grown up in. So she then called uncles and aunts and cousins—and friends of uncles and aunts and cousins—until we had a whole hometown tour booked!
One of those nights, I was scheduled to sing in a coffeehouse. When we arrived, the manager warned me, “We could have a full house or nobody at all. I couldn’t afford to advertise.”
I told him I was just grateful for the opportunity. And it was true—at first.
