Listen to My NEW Podcast!

I decided about a week ago that I should start a podcast. There is a story as to why, of course, but I think I will save the story for later. (It will make good podcast material!) A large part of it is that I am having issues with my hand that make it SUPER-hard for me to type, and I am not yet finished sharing stories from my life to help strengthen the faith-life of others. (More on the hand issue after I visit a doctor.) 

With the idea of podcasting in mind, I went to Fiverr and commissioned an iTunes cover to be made for my cast and then I got to writing my first episode. I also purchased a cheap desktop microphone because my USB headset makes my voice sound "tinny." I know. I should not be spending money on equipment for a podcast I am giving away for free. But hopefully people will like my content and want to help me out with a buck or two a month to help keep me going. At least, that is my hope!

Before I continue, let me show you the iTunes cover I got back from my Fiverr purchase. It is really good! I am so pleased with it!! (Feel free to forward to your friends.)

(Only the free episodes will be available on iTunes.)

What do you think? Nice, huh? Yeah, that is what I think, too.

I call episode 1 "Ask According to His Will." It will air tomorrow for everyone, both my sponsors (that I don't yet have) and all the as-yet non-existent subscribers to/followers of my free iTunes channel. After the first episode, though, I intend to post on the 2nd and 16th of the month. (Of course, my sponsors will get to listen a day early as a benefit for their pledges. I think that is only fair. Don't you?)

For you, though, my faithful blog readers for so many years, I have a special sneak peek of a portion of episode 1. I do hope you will find it interesting enough to listen to the episode and subscribe. In it, I tell a short story from my youth, which I then support by Scripture, followed by an answer to a question I received that I share anonymously with listeners.

I guess that is all for today, so until my podcast tomorrow morning, I shall bid you adieu.


My neighborhood was NOT safe for little girls to be walking alone.

But the Lord loves children and He must really have been watching over me while I was seeking Him because little 6th grade me, I was walking 2 miles by myself each way to and from church every single morning along a busy road in the suburbs of Chicago during the era of John Wayne Gacy – and I stayed safe all summer long.

But that’s not what this story is about.

What I’m trying to get to is a prayer that I made. It was on one of these walks to and from church during that summer. I was alone except for the Holy Spirit who was clearly watching over me, and for some reason – I don’t know, maybe because of the sermon I’d just heard, but I really don’t remember. For some reason, I reflected that if there was one thing I wanted for my life it was to leave people better for having known me....
