Timpanogos Cave National Monument (0:00:00) When we think of adventures of old, we often think of people staying in caves at night with campfires burning to keep them warm. We think of them walking through dark caves with lanterns in their hands, finding different crevices, ponds, and even paintings. There’s something so intriguing about caves; there’s so much to discover and explore. So for today’s Adventure Club, we wanted to go on an adventure to Timpanogos Cave. We’ve invited Cami McKinney from Timpanogos Cave National Monument onto the show to discuss this glorious place. Cami has worked at the monument for 23 years and currently serves as the Integrated Resources Program Manager. We’re excited for her to teach us more about Timpanogos Cave National Monument. Reading with a Worm (0:18:14) With Independence Day just around the corner, lots of families are preparing for camping trips, barbeques, and lots of outdoor time. Sure, there are hikes, lawn games, and swimming pools to keep your children busy, but you might be looking for something new to do outside. Well, we have an idea for you—playing with worms. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen is a children’s book author. One of her most recent books is “This is a Book to Read with a Worm”, a picture book that guides you through simple science experiments your child can perform with earthworms. Jodi is here with us today to tell us all about these fun experiments. De-escalating Work Drama (0:33:21) Remember the times we had to deal with co-workers in our offices. Hopefully for the most part you had nice people that you worked with who got their jobs done and weren’t too aggravating. But I’m guessing there’s a person or two that you’re kind of glad you only have to deal with them over zoom. However, we are going to return to our jobs and there’s always going to be people we don’t get along with that we have to work with. So, what can we do to not let personal issues get in the way with our own success? To help us know 5 simple steps to de-escalate work place drama, we’ve invited Stacy Penright on the show. She’s a business initiatives consultant and the CEO of Respect My Voice. Chronic Loneliness (0:52:45) While introverts–and sometimes extroverts–enjoy, even crave alone time, no one likes feeling lonely. But occasionally, those feelings of loneliness can creep in on us—and they can have devastating effects. Studies show that loneliness can have the same effect on your body as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. So, what can we do to combat these feelings? Here to talk us through loneliness and how we can fight it off is Dr. J. W. “Terry” Freiberg, social psychologist and author of “Surrounded By Others and Yet So Alone.” Mini Book Club (1:10:51) Rachel Wadham, of BYU Radio’s Worlds Awaiting, talks about the best psychological thriller books that we should check out. You can see a complete list of the books she mentioned on The Lisa Show’s social media platforms Summer Fire Safety (1:26:40) One of the best parts of summer that we can luckily still enjoy this year is the feeling of sitting around a fire. Whether you’re roasting marshmallows or just chatting with friends, fire makes everything feel cozier. However, our little fires can quickly turn into blazing infernos if we’re not careful. So, it’s important that we realize our individual responsibility to practice fire safety in order to protect ourselves, our families and our communities from the destruction that we sadly see very often in the summer months. To help us know exactly how to practice fire safety, just in time for the Fourth of July, is U.S. Fire Administrator Keith Bryant. Show More...
