Lisa and Rod Gustafson on Giving Tuesday. Frugal Fashion (00:00) We all want to look good and feel good, but our confidence isn’t worth going into debt. Unpaid bills can dangerously drag down our self-esteem and overall happiness. But there are a few things you can do to live a Gucci life without selling your soul to debt. Maryalene LaPonsie is a freelance contributor for the U.S News and World Report. She specializes in personal finance. National Adoption Month (17:06) Amy Carr and Morgan Grow join Lisa to talk about National Adoption Month, and to tell us how we can ask about adoption in more respectful ways. Amy Carr has worked as a classroom teacher and school administrator. She has also worked as a storyteller and early literary specialist at Provo Library, American Fork Library, and she currently works as a storyteller. Expectations in Marriage (49:22) One of the biggest challenges in any marriage is the management of expectations. Many of us enter relationships, expecting—or hoping--that the other person’s actions, attitudes and communications will enhance our lives. Recent research is showing that our expectations about marriage have increased in recent decades, while the time that people invest in their marriages has decreased. Dr. Dianne Grande is a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in teaching couples how to manage conflict, and in helping them realize their potential as a team. Random Acts: Giving Tuesday (1:05:51) Lisa talks about how Giving Tuesday can be a great response to the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Then, producer Rod Gustafson joins Lisa to discuss random acts of kindness that he’s seen in his own life, and how to go about giving kindness.
