What to expect…

Kay is a mom of five, former White House aide, International Capital Markets banker, entrepreneur (her Two Neighbors cookie mix graced the Epicurean shelves of Neiman Marcus), Neighborhood Studies founder (intersecting women, neighbors and Bible study) and author of 4 books – taking on entitlement trends, comparison pressures, overwhelmed, and now discord (societal, interpersonal & inner) in her latest book The Peace Project: A 30-day Experiment Practicing Thankfulness, Kindness & Mercy (5/21, Revell).

Kay is animated, fun, quick-witted and an engaging story teller. Good luck to an awkward pause finding its way into a chat with Kay. She has talked and lived through enough Jr. High years (hers as well as five kids) that she can weather just about anything thrown her way – offering insight with relatable authenticity.

“I am so grateful to have (Kay) join us again on Pardon the Mess. I was so refreshed by her words that a few times I forgot we were recording.” – Cynthia Yanof, host of Pardon the Mess Podcast


Take a peek/listen

To hear/see Kay on a few of the platforms that have been kind to include Kay in their line-up link below:



On the nonfiction front, I did a lot of starting and skimming. A chunk of the middle of “Girl in Glass.” A few pages of “When Kids Call the Shots.” Pretty nearly all of Kay Wills Wyma’s “I’m Happy for You (Sort of … Not Really).” I loved that book’s message: We live in an age of discontent and envy, and if you can think (and better yet, mean) “I’m happy for you,” you’re so much better off.
