My guest for Happy Half Hour #15 is Elyse Fitzpatrick. Elyse is a retreat and conference speaker, bestselling author and Director of Women Helping Women Ministries.  She has been married for more than 40 years and has three adult children and six grandchildren.

Elyse first appeared on the Happy Hour for episode #89 where she stole the show and became one of my all-time favorite guests. If you're in some need of some free counseling, scoot on over and give it a listen.

Today, Elyse is back after the recent release of her newest book, Home, where she writes about the idea of longing for heaven and how (praise God) things are not now how they will one day be. Elyse is one of my favorite authors, and I am so anxious to get a chance to read her latest work.

We also chat about how her childhood dream that had to die because she got pregnant, what she values in friendships and how much she hates cats on planes and dogs in restaurants. You know, the usual. I know you'll just love hearing from Elyse again.

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
