What to expect…

A couple things about Kay – she genuinely cares about people (humanity as a whole) and dislikes things that steal from them (her kids, her friends and society as a whole).

Kay is a mom of five, former White House aide, International Capital Markets banker (because apparently at one point, she could add), 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, and feeling overwhelmed. Her upcoming book, The Peace Project: A 30-day Experiment Practicing Thankfulness, Kindness & Mercy (5/21, Revell) that offers an invitation to grab what’s behind life’s Oz-curtain by taking hold of age-old wise practices that when pooled together invite pockets of peace for anyone on any given day.

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 without taking herself too seriously.

“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 Yanoff, host of Pardon the Mess


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.
