Posts Tagged ‘younger you

This morning I was interviewed on blog talk radio on CWLxPress (Christian Womens Lifestyle Express) with Deanetta Thompson.  We talked about…

What to do when you look in the mirror and feel unattractive

How to make small inexpensive changes to look younger

Why does appearance matter anyway? 

What to do when you’re tired of diets and exercising? 

You can listen in on the conversation here.  I hope you’ll be encouraged and get a few positive action steps to use this week.


I thoroughly enjoyed doing a segment this morning at 6:45 am on the NBC news here in San Diego.  It was nice to finally be there since we had scheduled two previous times for me to come on the show, but both segments had been bumped (once by the death of Osama bin Laden which was quite understandable). 

Reporter Megan Tevrizian is wonderful.  She was professional and easy to interview with.  We talked about how you can turn back the clock by boosting your brain power.  Lift some mental muscle by:

1. Learning a new language (even a few new words will do!).

2.  Playing like a kid again.  Build Legos and blocks with your kids and grandkids.

3.  Puzzle power!  Do a jigsaw puzzle, sudoku or crossword puzzle.

4.  Do something different day.  Break your routine by eating somewhere different at lunch, opening doors with your non-dominant hand, or driving a different way to work.

5.  Learn something new everyday.  You can look up a new word in the dictionary.  I looked up “Prexy.”  Know what it is?  Slang for a president, usually of a college or university. 

Thanks NBC for having me on, and thanks to you who were able to tune in and watch!  I’ll be putting video up on my website but it may take me awhile to do that.  This month is writing time for my next book 31 Days to a Happy Husband!   

Of course my favorite Mother’s Day gift looks like this:

I am confident your mom, your grandma will enjoy it.  Why not make a “younger you” gift basket and include:

  • 31 Days to a Younger You
  • Dark chocolate
  • Exercise DVD
  • Jump rope or resistance band
  • Bottle of water
  • Lotion

Then you can the finishing touch – a lovely Mother’s Day poem.  I found a great website called Mothers Day Central that has all things pertaining to Mothers Day, including 101 poems for moms. 

My book is available from any online retailer like Amazon, or if you would like an autographed copy for your mom or grandma, just send me an email at  It’s $10 for the autographed book and $2 for shipping.  I’d be happy to send a signed book to your mom for Mother’s Day!

God is so faithful!  My dream of becoming a writer came true today when boxes of books arrived at my home!  31 Days to a Younger You: No surgery, No diets, No kidding is here!

In 2006, I made a goal to write a manuscript.

In 2007, I met writer Pam Farrel who has served as my amazing mentor.  Pam encouraged my writing and showed me the ropes.

In 2009, I signed a book contract with Harvest House Publishers in May.  The book was due in October, one week shy of having baby Lucy.

And today, I received a beautiful Christmas present.  My book in black and white.  My highlight was how excited my daughter Noelle was to see her name in the book.  That was the best!  I read stories about her from the book and she thoroughly enjoyed the attention which surprised me.  I figured she’d get a kick out of being in a book years from now, but now at 4 years old, she’s already happy!

Here are some more pictures from the big day.  The opening of the first box…

Some of you pre-ordered books from me at speaking events.  Here I am signing the books.  I really enjoyed doing this!!!

I hope to sign one for you soon!  🙂
