Have you ever been in a slump? And then something comes around to fan your flames and re-energize you? That’s what’s been happening in my life in the few weeks.
About 6 weeks ago, my friend Cheri Gregory called me and asked me to co-host the podcast she was planning to start. When somebody asks me a question that I know is going to add a “plate” to the ones already spinning, I usually stall. And then I pray. And then I say NO!
This time was different, though. First, I love Cheri and the way her amazing brain spins out ideas like sparkler sparks. I also knew that my slump was partially from sitting alone in front of a computer screen for too many hours, and this project meant spending time with Cheri and lots of other fascinating people.
I didn’t hesitate. I didn’t even pray. (Sometimes you just know a God thing the minute you hear it!)
I said YES!!
Here’s how it’s going to work on my end. I’ll be posting here twice a week now. One day a week will be the same as it’s always been– some thoughts from me. The other day will be a lead-in and a link to Grit ‘n’ Grace: Good Girls Breaking Bad Rules with all the goodies involved over at Cheri’s blog. Here’s what you’ll get there:
- The podcast. We’re keeping it to 20 minutes max, and we’ve got some amazing interviews lined up–like so amazing that I can barely sleep at night for thinking about the next person we get to talk to! Also, Cheri and I are committed to giving you something usable every week in a fun format. That girl is funny, and she’s bringing out my funny too. (Note: The first two are on marriage, but hang in there, single friends. We’ve got lots coming that’s for the whole crowd.)
- Fun Downloads. This week there’s a printable coloring page with a life-changing statement.
- Giveaways. Almost every week our guests will be giving away a copy of their book or another resource. I love free stuff, and I know you do too!
So… without further ado… here’s:
