Lou is in town for two interviews with FamilyLife Today (FLT) on his two new books, Pleasing People and Getting a Grip. Lou has also written two others that I just mentioned have helped me in raising my children, The Heart of Anger and Teach Them Diligently.
Often when a male guest flies into Little Rock for a FLT interview, the research assistant will ask for a volunteer to pick them up and sometimes take them to dinner. When I saw that Lou Priolo was coming in, I quickly raised my hand! After picking him up at the airport, he was needing a bite to eat, so we went to my newest favorite restaurant - Pei Wei. Pei Wei is owned by the same folks that own PF Chang's, but Pei Wei is quite a bit cheaper - another reason it's my favorite restaurant!
So, over a bowl of Soba-Miso and my favorite - Mongolian Beef, we discussed everything from origami to ministry to, of course, child rearing. I got to ask him some questions about child rearing - just to see if he remembered what he wrote in his books. :o) He faired pretty well.
Anyways...I thought this would be a good opportunity to introduce you or re-introduce you to an author that needs to occupy your library. Here are some Lou Links:
