Recover Your Good Heart... Week 2 tomorrow night!

Last Sunday we began our study of Jim Robbins' study guide for his book Recover Your Good Heart, and we'll continue this week and for several weeks until we get through the ten chapters of the guide. Seven of us were present together on Yahoo Messenger, and we certainly had a lively discussion! You're more than welcome to join us this week and any week. If you're shy about something like this, no worries! Just come and hang out with us and read along with our Yahoo chat.

I did have one issue with not being able to invite an individual into our conference. For some reason, Yahoo Messenger would not give me the option to invite that particular person. I'm pretty sure that if someone's using Messenger on a cell phone, it won't work, but this person said they were using a laptop, so I don't know why it wouldn't work. Does anyone happen to know anything about Yahoo Messenger conferencing limitations?

We'll begin at 7pm Eastern, 4pm Pacific, and we'll go for about an hour each Sunday. We're using Yahoo Messenger (it will probably help if everybody's running the latest version). My id is jsbreeze111. If you'd like to be a part of this study, simply add me as one of your contacts at any time (identifying yourself so I know you're legit. I'll sign on 15 to 30 minutes before the start of each study. When you log on, please send me an IM to let me know that you want to be a part of the study, and I'll invite you into the main chat.

One of the participants was Aida. Here's Aida's 'review' of last week's chat.


  1. Thanks, Joel. We're having a blast.

  2. Joel - This is something I looked forward but for one reason or the other with my schedule, I couldn't make it for the last two sessions.
    Hopefully I will make it next time.

    BTW, Have you considered saving the chat transcript? Just a thought...

  3. RJW,

    Yes! It continues to be a great thing!


    We've talked about you during the chats, so you probably don't want me to make the transcript public! LOL Just kidding. :) (Well, we have talked about you... only saying that it would be neat to have you with us).

    I've thought about saving the transcripts, but I sort of have two thoughts about it. One... it would truly be great to allow others to read it, because the discussions so far have been great! But two... although this is a 'public' thing, with me inviting anyone who wants to join in, it's also "sort of" private, in that it's a small intimate group and people might share things in a smaller group that they don't really want to be shared in a bigger public setting.

    Anyway, that's just where my thinking has gone with this so far, and I'm not settled in either thought right now. :)

    We DO hope you are able to join us! It would be great to have you with us!

  4. So, you guys gossip too? :)

    I know what you are saying about the chat being 'private'. On a second thought, I think if we know we don't make it public, we will be more free to share our true thoughts during the discussion... may be that's better, well, i don't know... :)
