So excited to welcome bestselling author Mitch Albom (Tuesdays with Morrie) to kick off 2022 on the Happy Home podcast!

As parents, we can easily slip into complaining or a martyr complex (look at me and all the sacrifices I have to make for these kids!!!).  Talking to Mitch Albom about his special daughter Chika really helps to put it all into perspective.  In Mitch’s book Finding Chika, you’ll learn of his unusual journey to parenting – beginning with an orphanage in Haiti that would change his life forever.  In today’s conversation, you’ll hear about:

5:00 Taking Chika to Disneyland for the first time

8:00 How children are curious and full of wonder before given screens

11:30 The unexpected making of a family

14:00 How parenting enhances a marriage

15:45 How to handle conflict in the marriage when your child is seriously ill

18:30 Everything you do is an example to your children

19:30. Carrying Chika when she could no longer walk

21:50. Morrie’s profound sentence

24:30 Chika singing “I am a Child of God”

26:00  About the Stranger in the Lifeboat

29:30. Why did you take away this person God? Here’s a better question to ask…

Mitch Albom has sold over 40 million copies of his books including the bestselling memoir of all time Tuesdays with Morrie.  He and his wife Janine direct the Have Faith Orphanage in Haiti.  His newest books (the subjects of our interview) are Finding Chika and The Stranger in the Lifeboat.  

Mitch also hosts the Tuesday People podcast with Lisa Goich.  I had the pleasure of trading places with him – you can hear his interview with me talking about Screen Kids here.
