  1. Thank you for a great, great show.
    Would you guys pleace review “Prophet” by Brandon Graham?
    I just love the book and would like to hear what you think of it?

  2. Awesome! Thanks so much for answering my question. I’m in agreement, pushing things is how you drive rifts between yourself and your kids. It happened in my family with sports.

  3. Another Great issue of MSP guys, can not wait for the live chat now! Question do you not need to be on the tracks first before you can go off the rails?

    With my kids its funny, they are into stuff I love before I know they are. I walked into my daughters room yesterday and asked “What are you watching?” and with a smile she said “Power Rangers” did not even know she liked them. I must be doing something right.
