I recently had an awesome opportunity to speak with Luann Prater and Suzie Eller on their weekly syndicated Encouragement Cafe radio show. My tummy did somersaults as I waited for the phone to ring that Tuesday in May. But they called, we talked and I survived. In fact, I somehow managed to have a rather lovely conversation while my heart was ricocheting off the walls of my chest cavity.
Since that phone call I’ve been concerned about two insignificant things.
1. Did I say anything ridiculous?
2. Did my voice sound dorky? (Am I the only one who is weirded out by the sound of their own recorded voice? I don’t even like to hear myself on voicemail.)
Speaking and writing are two very different animals and I much prefer putting words to paper than letting them spill unedited out of my mouth.
Well, the show aired this weekend on a number of radio stations in the southeast US and became available to listen to online on Friday. It couldn’t get myself to listen to it until last night; a couple days after Corey assured me that I did not sound like a rambling fool.
Regardless of my insecurities, it was such an honor to have the opportunity to share what God is doing in my life through 500 Dresses and to promote Mission to Haiti.
Take a listen if you’d like. And if you have some time to spare, check out some of their other interviews. They have talked to some pretty cool people.
P.S. If you think my voice sounds weird, keep it to yourself. 😉
