Huh? So basically, IQ will get you through school, but EQ gets you through life? I guess we need to ask ourselves, where are we on our EQ rating? How do we register with working in teams, communicating with our co-workers and making decisions? Test Your Emotional Intelligence (EQ) and then join us this week on GirlfriendIt Radio as we unpack why this is so important in leading your life of influence. *** This is an encore presentation.  To listen now, click here.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”   ~ Marcel Proust When was the last time you discovered something new? When was the last time you lost yourself in a good book that took you on a journey of exploration, in which you dreaded coming to the final words, The End!? I, (Lisa), love a good book accompanied by a cup of coffee, which ends up being more like a hot milk shake the way I make it!  To be honest, I am usually reading several books at the same time because I crave the challenge, intrigue, and discovery of distant lands, interesting people, and new concepts.  Authors become mentors, and books become friends. And when it comes to authors and books, the name of C.S. Lewis is unrivaled! We have a rare treat on Girlfriendit Radio this week with our two dynamic guests: You won’t want to miss our interview with Colin Duriez, who is a highly respected and renowned author and lecturer on both C.S. Lewis and J.R. Tolkien. In The A–Z of C.S. Lewis: An Encyclopedia of His Life, Thought and Writings, Colin provides a comprehensive introduction to Lewis’ life, family, friends, career, marriage and writings, as well as an inside look into the worlds he created, the creatures he imagined, and the studies he delighted in. Lean in to our time with Tammy Smith, Children’s Director at Impact Community Church in Sacramento, CA, and a leader with the ministry of Bloom, an incredible network for church planter's spouses. A few of our favorite quotes from C.S. Lewis:

We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.

Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.

Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably. BTW – Here’s a recent discovery: The App, Red Stamp! Great for sending fun messages, notes, cards. Best part: It’s free!
Are you standing at a crossroads in life right now? Are you staring, contemplating the unknown, and deciding whether to follow your heart or your head? It all comes down to the choices we make. At times, I (Lisa) have a hard time making decisions, especially if they really aren’t that significant. Where should we go for dinner? What shirt should I wear this day?  These kind of decisions don’t have too many consequences if I choose at random. But there are those life decisions that have major consequences if made without thought or wisdom. The Road Unknown can be filled with excitement and expectation. As you step onto this road, whether it be a new relationship, a new job, or making a move, are you entering with wisdom? Ask Yourself:
  • Why do I want this?
  • Are my motives pure?
  • Are my expectations realistic?
  • How will this affect others?
  • Will I have regrets if I do or don’t do whatever it is?
  • Will God be blessed?
Joining our show this week on Girlfriendit Radio is Barbara Cameron, author of more than 20 fiction and nonfiction books, three nationally televised movies, and the winner of the first Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award. When a relative took her to visit the Amish community in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, she felt led to write about the spiritual values and simple joys she witnessed there. Cameron advises, “Anyone feeling at a crossroads in life should stand back and ask God for guidance.  Jumping impulsively is almost always a problem although you can over-analyze things. Listen for divine guidance and always pay attention to the still small voice you have within." Seeking Christ in the Crossroads,
