I am so excited to share this with you!! Today I launched my first-ever podcast!
After promoting the audiobook for Becoming A Peaceful Mom, I began to think and pray about what next. I have more to share from the years of raising our three children, but I wasn’t sure how. Then the podcast idea surfaced. The only thing was, I knew nothing about podcasts. I began to listen to a few until one day I knew it was time to step in to this. I reached out to Leah Jarvis, an amazing virtual assistant, who led me through this process.
And what.a.process. I don’t know what I’m doing! and What have I gotten myself into? were my almost-daily comments. I enjoyed lots of comfort food whenever anxious thoughts invaded, like What if no one listens to it? Are there already 10 million podcasts out there with the same message? I cried when tender memories or faithful redemptions by God filled my podcast draft. I cheered out loud when I completed any step… and maybe I jumped up and down a couple of times, too. And I prayed with all sorts of emotions because I’m so grateful that I get to do this, even though I have a feeling that all those emotions that I just described are going to surface again.
This podcast is about learning in simple steps how to participate with God as he shapes your child, shapes you, shapes your relationship with a child, and helps you connect your child to him. God helps us learn to walk with him as he leads us through a day and each season of raising our kids. We learn to rely on God — as we practice relying on him.
It’s for moms and dads, and most of the material applies to all the years of raising our kids. I hope that you are encouraged—and that you will share it will other parents who could use some encouragement. Just go to teresadglenn.com/podcast!
