Praise for Wait Lifters, formerly Wiser Now Wednesday
Kathy Laurenhue’s Wiser Now Wednesday is the only email I eagerly open each week and I’m on a lot of email lists. It always makes me laugh and think by providing me with thoughtful material that I didn’t even know I needed until I read it. I marvel at how chock full of information it is. Plus, the fun games to play keep my brain working and as a neuro artist, I’m all about brains!
~ neuro artist Laura Bundesen
Kathy’s Wiser Now Wednesday is chock full of interesting information and programming possibilities, all around a single topic. I am always amazed how many different things—from quotes to quizzes to trivia to art—she can pull together. And it is presented in her signature lighthearted and “punny” style that is always fun to read. I suggest everyone sign up for the newsletter. It will make your Wednesdays.

I love the wisdom and fun you provide. Even my grandkids enjoy the riddles, quizzes, and puns.
