Melody Warnick, author of This is Where You Belong, joins us this week to talk about becoming “rooted” and how important it is to invest in your community if you want it to feel like home. During this week’s show, she shares her personal experiences of trying to craft a home in Blacksburg, VA and what worked for her. Further, she shares what people in other communities across the country have done by investing in their communities and, thereby, creating a sense of belonging and cultivating more lovable places.
