Nancy: We have some new guests with us this week, and I want to introduce them to you. To Mary’s left is my friend, Kim Wagner. She’s a pastor’s wife, a mom, a grandmom. Kim, we are so glad to have you on our set this time—our Table Talk.

And then in the middle, Karen Loritts, married to Crawford Loritts. He’s a pastor and a broadcaster and an author. Karen and Crawford have been my friends for many years, and we’re glad to have you with us. Karen is also a mom and a grandmom. How many grandchildren now, Karen?

Karen Loritts: Eight grandchildren. They’re growing.

Nancy: Wow! Bless you! And we are so glad you are able to join us. And then to my right, Carolyn McCulley. Carolyn is a filmmaker. She makes . . . what do you call those?

Carolyn McCulley: Documentaries.

Nancy: Documentaries, a certain kind that have social causes. You have a real heart for people for issues that need to be surfaced and people need to get greater understanding of. We’ve been friends for a long time, and that’s what this True Woman Table Talk is. It’s Mary and me getting to talk with some of our friends. So this is a lot of fun for us, and I’m glad that as we are talking about guys today that we have some different seasons of life represented. We have moms, grandmoms, single women. Mary, you have all sons.

Mary Kassian: All sons. Grown. They’re grown, and I have my first daughter-in-law which is great. And it just even showed more profoundly how big of a difference there is between girls and guys.

Nancy: Like when you choose movies at your house?

Mary: When we choose movies—that’s a big one. I mean,  I have never been able to watch like chick flicks. It’s just a big deal.

Nancy: Just you and the sons.

Mary: Let me tell you what it absolutely floored me. Clark and Jacqueline got married, and Jacqueline was hanging out at our place. I come home from a shopping trip and I’ve got bags in my hand. I came in with the bags and normally I just go upstairs and put them away in my closet. I hear this voice from the living room and Jacqueline’s there, “What did you buy? I want to see.” And so anyway, now that Jacqueline is in our household it’s turned in to this big joke because I was just so blown away that I was asked to interact on what I had purchased. It’s just so much fun to see that and just to enjoy those differences in adulthood between male and female and to enjoy those.

Carolyn: Well, I’m so excited we are talking about the differences between men and women today because I love talking about men. It’s one difference I’m changing. (laughter)

Kim Wagner: We just witnessed the differences right here as we were getting ready to record. Karen and Mary and I were talking about, “Oh, what color are you? What season?”

Karen: It was such a big thing. Can you imagine our husbands saying that? “Oh, what season are you?”

Kim: “I’m like an autumn.”  

Nancy: I can wear orange.

Mary: You can’t, you’re not an autumn.

Nancy: I’m not an autumn.

Kim: And so, some of the men on the engineering crew were standing up here and heard what we were saying. One of the men turned to the other one and said, “What season are you?” (laughter) Another camera man said, “Well, are you talking about deer season? Or time season? What do you mean?” There are differences.

Karen: Men are . . . they are different. A couple of weeks ago, we had three of our four grandsons at our house. We went up to …
