So I’ve got a question for ya.
Pretty exciting news around here. Last week, I was approached about starting a podcast!
Some of the topics would be about inpatient, how EDs are portrayed in the media, Body Dysmorphia, the intersection of faith and recovery, sports and ED, the dangers of diet culture, etc. Bringing on guests like health professionals, ED advocates, professional athletes, and if the stars align…maybe Demi Lovato! (A girl can dream, right?) haha
But my question is this: Would this be something you’d be interested in? The blog would stay the absolute same, there’d just be a podcast also available once a week on iTunes, Stitcher, wherever you listen to podcasts, for free.
And secondly, Would YOU want to be a guest on it and share your story? That’s the other exciting part! I’d love to bring YOU on, and hear your story, and talk about our recovery journeys, things we’ve found helpful, our experiences with treatment, etc. Let me know 🙂
So nothing is set in stone, and I’m literally just gauging the interest level and floating an idea, but I think it could be pretty dang cool if I do say so myself.
I mean, podcasts are all the rage. I don’t know if you guys listen to them with abandon like I do, but I literally listen to probably close to 3 different podcasts a day. While I’m cooking, cleaning, getting ready, working out, during my commute. I’ve always been a “learner” and so I love to listen to fascinating discussions about every topic under the sun!
Anywho. Moving on, thank you for your feedback, and hopefully excitement 🙂
So I cried on an airplane on Wednesday.
Yes, I was that girl, who at 7am, was weeping quietly in her seat as the flight attendants were shelling out peanuts.
I was flying back to NYC from Ohio, and I was listening to my absolute favorite podcast by Fr. Mike Schmitz.
This man is incredible. He is on fire for the Lord, a fantastic speaker, and entertaining as all get out. I’ve even had the privilege of meeting him. And he’s even more dynamic and engaging in person, if that’s even possible.
But I was listening to his podcast from Palm Sunday.
Here we are, Holy Thursday. When you’re reading this, I’ll be at the Last Supper service. But leading up to today, I really wanted to prepare my heart for Holy Week and Easter, so enter…Fr. Mike’s podcast.
They always make ya laugh, make ya think, deepen your faith. But this one in particular, sparked the waterworks. I think even he was holding back tears during it, which I have never heard before.
But it’s about Jesus’ Passion. And he presents it in such a way that truly makes it so personal. I don’t want to do it a disservice by clunkily trying to summarize the eloquent, powerful message he so expertly crafted.
So I invite you to just take 30 minutes, and listen to his podcast. It will truly change the perspective of your Holy Week experience, if not your life.
And perhaps, you’ll end up like me, weeping in seat 5D.
Know that, friends, you are all in my prayers during this Easter Triduum. I pray that we can look at the death of Jesus, and recognize and claim that incredible love He poured out, and believe it to our core. And believe it to the point that it heals the deep wounds and hurts we carry in our own hearts and spirits.
Happy Easter, my friends.
