Episode 47. Amazing Ways to Research Your Family Tree and Write Your Personal History



Episode 47. Amazing Ways to Research Your Family Tree and Write Your Personal History

In honor of Thanksgiving Day, Sharlene Habermeyer and I chat about genealogy and the importance of knowing your ancestors. She tells us how she and her husband began their research and how much easier discovering the leaves of your family tree is today with information posted online.

Sharlene and her husband of 44 years, Mark, were blessed with five sons and 13 grandchildren. They know the joys of parenting and grandparenting and the gut-wrenching emotions of losing their fourth son to a brain disorder.

She wrote the book, Good Music Brighter Children that has been translated into five languages. She taught college for 10 years and founded the Palos Verdes Regional Symphony Orchestra in Southern California that is still going strong.

I mention I have written a family history book for my grandchildren. It is available for sale on my Etsy Shop. The title of the book is My Family Tree. It a journal for children to use as they begin to discover the facts about their living relatives and their deceased ancestors. The link is in the show notes. Be sure visit my Twitter account for a discount code.

We’re doing a podcast swap!

My guest today is Emily Morgan, the host of another grandparenting podcast, The Grand Life: Wholehearted Grandparenting. Her husband, Mike Morgan, is the sound engineer.

Now in its fifth season, The Grand Life entertains, educates, and enlightens grandparents who want to become the best they can be.

Episode 45. Educator has a rock-solid commitment to students and teachers



Educator Bradlee W. Skinner says great schools do not happen by accident. They are the result of a consistent investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, mutual respect between teachers and administrators, and a rock-solid commitment to do what is best for kids.
In addition to teaching, Skinner is an actor, playwright, speaker, DJ and celebrity impersonator. He has been recognized as the Wyoming Theatre Director of the Year, District Teacher of the Year for his school district, and this past summer Jostens company recognized him as its National Educator of the Year.

To contact him, visit his website at bradleewskinner.com. He is on social media @bradleewskinner.

I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Philip Ovadia, a heart surgeon who has lost more than 100 pounds and has kept those pounds off for many years. He has written a fascinating book: STAY OFF MY OPERATING TABLE: A HEART SURGEON’S METABOLIC HEALTH GUIDE TO LOSE WEIGHT, PREVENT DISEASE, AND FEEL YOUR BEST EVERY DAY.

As with many Americans, I need to lose weight. I look at pictures from 10 years ago and wonder how did these pounds creep up on me? I find it harder and harder to lose weight. I used to be able to walk a little faster, exercise a bit longer or lay off the ice cream for a few weeks and the pounds would come off. That’s not working for me now.

After reading an advance copy of his book and interviewing Dr. Ovadia, I know metabolic health is more important than the number on the scale. Dr. Ovadia gives us five measures to determine our metabolic health, and I am pleased only one of my numbers is off, but there’s a thin Carolyn inside me and I want her back.

If any of you are interested in joining me on a weight loss challenge, please send me an e-mail and let’s do this together!

Episode 42. Rekindle the magic in your life with the Five Keys of Greatness!



If you ever have found yourself in a dark place devoid of joy and happiness or are unsure of your next step, the award-winning debut novel The Little Book of Greatness by today’s guest, Ari Gunzburg, will resonate with you. It’s the story of David as he sits atop a cliff wondering why his life should go on.

Many have compared The Little Book of Greatness to The Alchemist, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, and The Secret. Unlike those books, Gunzburg says the framework of his book and the five keys of greatness also will resonate with teens who often feel overwhelmed, alone, and unable to handle the pressures they face.

If you, your children, or your grandchildren need to regain confidence, rekindle the magic in your lives, or rediscover a purpose for your lives, join David on his journey as he interacts with five people who help him discover a more fulfilling life.

About Ari Gunzburg

Drawing on many life experiences from his “PhD” in the school of hard knocks, Ari now dedicates his life to helping others using motivational speaking, keynotes, podcasts, youth presentations and more to help share the lessons he has learned and build lives of meaning.

Episode 41. Zen Pig teaches mindfulness



Episode 41 Zen Pig with children’s author Mark Brown

Please join me in welcoming to the podcast Mark Brown, the author of a series of books that feature Zen Pig as the main character.

Zen Pig teaches young readers the importance of gratitude, justice, empathy, compassion, and other soft skills that are important for people of all ages to embrace. Mark initially wrote the first book for his son, Noble. He wanted to ensure his son learned gratitude at an early age – not later in life as he had – and Noble’s behavior and curiosity have inspired the remaining titles.

Admittedly, mindfulness skills often prove challenging for adults to learn, but Mark says Zen Pig demonstrates mindfulness in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.

Mark Brown’s vision is for families to enjoy the books and for teachers and school systems to incorporate mindfulness activities into classroom settings on an ongoing basis. To make doing so easy for teachers, Mark and his team have created free lessons plans teachers can download.

Episode 40. Celebrating Grandparents with author Ann Richardson



Ann Richardson is a grandmother of two boys, the mother of a son and a daughter, and the author of Celebrating Grandmothers: Grandmothers talk about their lives.

This heartwarming book looks at the excitement and challenges 27 women from various cultures experience in their role as grandmothers. How did becoming grandmothers change the texture of their lives? How do they now view themselves? How did they feel when they held their grandchildren for the first time? The poignant stories will make you smile and tug at your heartstrings.

Although about grandmothers, the book is not exclusively for them. It would make a great gift for a new member of the Grandmothers’ Club and for anyone interested in the importance of nurturing relationships.

Touching: The Human Significance of the Skin
Ashley Montagu, The Late Ashley Montagu
Harper & Row, 1978 – Body language – 384 pages

https://www.google.com/books/edition/Touching/XU7Z_aqCYggC?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=inauthor:%22Ashley+Montagu%22&printsec=frontcover

A groundbreaking achievement when it was first published in 1971, this moving and absorbing examination of the importance of tactile interaction-touching-on all facets of human development is now brought thoroughly up to date in light of research since 1978. Dr. Montagu here devotes special attention to the relation of the skin and touching to mental and physical health; the discovery of the immunological functions of the skin; the importance of touching, especially for older people; a demonstration of the harmfulness of newfangled methods of dealing with the newborn; gender differences; new experimental studies on the deprivation effect; the relation between touching and imaging; and the uses of touching in psychotherapeutic situations.

From ancient times to now, engines have powered people’s lives. Engines! With 25 Science Projects for Kids invites readers ages 7 to 10 to explore engines and deepen their understanding of the history of engines, what makes them hum, and all the special jobs they do for humans. You’ll even learn a few science jokes!

Hands-on engineering projects include
• Constructing a rubber band heat engine
• Building a milk-carton conveyor belt

She has a BA in English from Campbell University and an MA in Professional Writing and Editing from George Mason University. She lives in North Carolina near her children and four grandchildren.

Donna was a guest on Episode 10 of the podcast and discussed her book about hiking and her trek through all the state parks in North Carolina.

In today’s episode we discuss her latest book and being a grandmother. I’ve even added a snippet from Episode 10 about hiking.

Welcome, Donna. Please tell us more about your new book and a bit about the other books you’ve written.
