How do we differ from a dolphin?  We have the gift of reason, at a very refined level.  Perhaps dolphins have some rudimentary reasoning ability when faced with danger, or when hunting food, or when teaching their young, or when learning to perform in captivity.  But we, as humans, have a superior ability to think things through, weighing all the options. 

Our gift of reason comes in very handy when having a conversation, a discussion, or even an argument.  Do you discipline yourself to think carefully before you act or speak?   Healthy relationships demand that you think first, and speak later.  Today, Dr. Joan discusses a simple step to ignite your own gift of reason.

Are you experiencing relationship issues at home, at work, or at play?  Tune in to hear Dr. Joan describe alternative solutions. Follow along as she presents keys for harmony. 

A portion of each program is devoted to the reading of Dr. Joan's published stories about human disputes.  She is currently reading from her first novel Gra Im Thu! I Love You!  The story is about two Irish families who find themselves intermarrying, even though they are poles apart in the areas of religion and politics.  Tune in and listen to the story, as the O'Grady and Gwynn families learn to solve their potato encounters and develop a method for making delicious mashed potatoes together.  Find out how diversity and harmony can live in the same house.
