What's worth doing? (and other essential questions)
Welcome to the Kelly Corrigan Wonders “Life Worth Living” Book Club. This is the opening episode, where Kelly and the authors dig into the key questions driving this series: what’s worth doing, who are we responsible to, how should life feel, how should we deal with failures, and what can keep our values and our behavior aligned? Share this with the readers and thinkers in your life. The more people having this conversation, the better for all of us.
Based on Life Worth Living: A Guide to What Matters Most from authors Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun and Ryan McAnnally-Linz. Visit lifeworthliving.com/kelly to access a study guide to help you work through the book. Special thanks to the Warren Smoot Carter III and Meagan Carter Charitable Fund.
Thanks For Being Here Keith's Eulogy for his Dad Patrick
Keith Romano wrote and delivered this eulogy for his father Patrick Romano, a lover of sports who believed that teamwork was always more important than talent. Keith honors his father’s uncompromising values and beliefs, his sense of humor and the example he set for his family…illustrated by the “no look pass” something Patrick always felt was the perfect intersection of teamwork, skill and grace.
Very specific ideas for participating in great conversation wherever you go. This one is meant to help us all live as learners and connectors, not teachers, performers, takers. Because charity counts for more than cleverness.

Carvell Wallace on Understanding and Acceptance
How do understanding and approval factor into kindness? Are we only nice to the people we "get"? How can we change the way we think about who is deserving of love, respect and kindness? (hint: it's everyone). Carvell Wallace has thoughts on all of this and more. He's a writer, a thinker and a creative who has written powerful profiles of artists, actors, activists and is also the curious mind behind the podcast Finding Fred, about Mr. Rogers.

Thanks For Being Here - Alex Mallonee's Essay About His Mom Joyce
Alex Mallonee wrote this meaningful essay: “Things I Learned From My Mother Through the Art We Made Together”. It’s a look at Alex’s beautiful relationship with his incredible mom Joyce, her 25-year cancer journey and the art project they created together called “Deconstruction”. Joyce’s creativity, desire to collaborate, love and sense of humor fueled the project but more importantly, showed Alex how to live well.
