Daily Inspiration: The Nothing Box

I felt like some lighthearted humor today, so I am showcasing a video with Mark Gungor and his thoughts on how men and women think.

Mark Gungor is Senior Pastor of Celebration Church,  the CEO of Laugh Your Way America and one of the most sought-after speakers about marriage and family in the world. Mark uses comedy and  illustrations, along with the power of laughter to teach principles that can help strengthen, or enhance any marriage.

Here is Mark Gungor in “A Tale of Two Brains” as he discusses the difference between men’s and women’s brains, and tries to explain “the nothing box”.

About Tamara Hoerner (1206 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

I'd love to know what you think!
