Lighten Up #54: Sally Clarkson


Today, I’m talking with Sally Clarkson about her new book, The Lifegiving Table. I love Sally because she’s already raised her kids into fabulous, functioning adults with jobs and lives of their own and she gives me great hope that it’s possible to successfully raise decent human beings! Yay! Who else is super relieved to hear this today? She shares tons of ideas for getting our families around the dinner table and what a difference we can make with these small deposits of time over a lifetime. Also, Sally is giving away two copies of her book, so head over to my Instagram @UnexpectedMel to enter to win! No matter who is gathering around your table this year for the holidays, I know you’ll enjoy this conversation with Sally, so listen in and lighten up!
