How can WIT boost our WISDOM?

Welcome back to another enriching episode of Flourish-Meant! In today's sweet treat of a conversation, we're sprinkling wit over wisdom with the talent and charm of award-winning author Linda Kozar. 

Linda brings her signature Southern flair and humor to the discussion as we dive into her delightful devotional, "Gimme Some Sugar." This episode is not just about laughs; it's about reaching our spiritual depths. We'll explore how humor can disarm us, making way for resilience and a deeper acceptance of wisdom. Linda shares insights from her own journey of faith and wisdom gained from her experiences in teaching a women's Bible study, as well as the therapeutic and relational benefits of humor in everyday life. 
Join us as Linda gives us a taste of how Southern humor uniquely stitches grace into our interactions and how we can use it to sweeten the lens through which we view Scripture. Linda also provides practical tips on integrating humor into your devotional routine and juggling Bible reading amidst a busy life.

Don't forget to listen to the end for a special offerβ€”a free PDF gift filled with funny Southern sayings, recipes, and a guaranteed smile! So, get ready to find the sweet juice in your spiritual journey and let's get our sugar fix on Flourish-Meant, where we feed not only your soul but promise a hearty helping of humor with our special guest, Linda Kozar. 

Linda Kozar is an award-winning multi-published author of traditional and indie-published fiction and nonfiction books with a southern flair.
