ITA #13 – Author Andy Andrews Shares Inspiring Encouragement for Moms

By September 25, 2013Podcast

andy andrewsHonestly? I thought it was a prank. I got an email saying Andy Andrews (I loved his book The Noticer) would like to be on the Inspired To Action podcast and could we arrange it?

Um. Yes…

He is a New York Times best selling author, he speaks internationally to huge organizations like GE, Coca-Cola, Chickfila and The US Department of Defense.

Zig Ziglar said, “Andy Andrews is the best speaker I have ever seen.” He is praised by everyone from Paul Harvey, Dave Ramsey, NFL star Kurt Wariner, PGA Hall of Famer Nancy Lopez to Kenny Rogers. And despite all of his success, in today’s podcast you’ll find him to be warm, wise, humble and filled with a heart to encourage moms as we parent the next generation.

Friends, you are in for a treat today. Andy shares some fantastic parenting wisdom, including stories about his own boys, and his inspiring life story.

Andy calls parenting the fulcrum of our culture and his new book The Noticer Returns (click here to preorder it now – releases Oct. 1) wraps timeless parenting truths into a story you’ll find hard to put down. (Well, if you’re like me anyway. I have no self control when it comes to great fiction.)

What you’ll learn in this podcast:

  • The tragedy that occurred when Andy was only 19 years old.
  • How he spiraled out of control and what (or who) got him on his feel again.
  • Why, as a young man, he read over 200 biographies of great people and how it impacted his life.
  • How moms can have a huge impact on our culture.
  • The “proof of hope” that the best is yet to come for YOU.
  • A tip to help your child make great choices.
