I’m so excited! My daughter is about to have her baby! (Are you sick of hearing that yet?) The fabulous Erik Wesner has (once again) agreed to guest host for me while I’m away.
Be sure to tune in on Thursday as he interviews author, Lorilee Craker. She is the author of an upcoming book on Amish finance and money tips. I’ll definitely be downloading that podcast!
About Lorilee: Lorilee Craker is the author of 11 books, including the New York Times Bestseller “Through the Storm” with Lynne Spears. Her latest book, “Money Secrets of Amish: Sharing, Saving and Shoofly Pie,” releases in July 2011. Lorilee is also a mother of three, and an entertainment writer for The Grand Rapids Press in Grand Rapids, MI. Her website is LorileeCraker.com.
Lorilee is also the proud wife of sweet, country, guitar-slinging Doyle and the proud mom of three rabble-rousing kids. Lorilee has written eleven books now, which seems nutty but is a true story. Two baby name books (A is for Adam and A is for Atticus), four parenting books (When the Belly Button Pops, the Baby’s Done, O For a Thousand Miles to Sleep, See How They Run, and Loving Life with Your Preschooler (used to be Wide Eyed Wonder Years), one mom’s devo, Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet, two marriage books (We Should Do This More Often, and Date Night in a Minivan), and one collaboration, Through the Storm: A Real Story of fame and Family in a Tabloid World with the lovely and amazing Lynne Spears.
She speaks quite a bit at MOPS groups and other mom-type events, which she loves, and she moonlights as an entertainment reporter for The Grand Rapids Press, where she gets to go hear the rock bands of her youth for “work.” Her favorite recent interviews: Wynonna Judd, Deborah Norville, Vivian Campbell from Def Leppard, Henry Winkler (who kissed her twice and made her almost fall over….the Fonz!), and always, JY from Styx.
The loves of her life, besides God and her family, include the country of Canada, the cities of Winnipeg and Chicago (okay, and Grand Rapids, too!), her Grandma’s farm in McTavish, Manitoba, Anne of Green Gables, Jane Austen, chocolate, girlfriends, and the late, great Winnipeg Jets (Save our Jets!).
