This is really hard for me to tell you….
It feels like my heart is about to pound right out of my chest.
Just the thought of embarking on this journey makes my face flush and hot. I am sure if you could see me, my face would be bright red!
Here’s the big news. I knew you could hardly wait to hear it.
The Alabaster Jar ministry might be extending to on-line radio! Gulp.
Personally, I was a little freaked out when my Beloved shared his thoughts about using this resource to extend the ministry of The Alabaster Jar.
Then I thought about it for a little bit. And prayed about it.
Speaking doesn’t take me nearly as long to communicate my thoughts like writing does. Between serving my family, keeping my home and homeschooling my children, there is not much time left in my day to write. (Hence one of the reasons why I don’t post a new article that often.)
We discussed the ideas of posting videos…but I shied away from that thought a long time ago. Maybe I thought it was too much effort, or just something that God did not place on my heart at the time.
But doing on-line radio would solve some problems that I thought doing a video presented, like …
- There would be nothing to stage.
- No one needed to video me speaking.
- No cleaning up the house before videotaping.
- And the most priceless reason: No hair and makeup would need to be done!
My Beloved found a free, blogtalk radio program. Did I mention that it was free? That works for us right now. It fits within our budget. 🙂
Although, the radio program is not LIVE, at least not yet.
The free program allows me to give multiple recorded messages in varying time increments and I can offer new shows several times a month.
The paid programming allows callers to call in and ask questions. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT CONCEPT!!!!! But, I am not there yet. I think I need to just get my feet wet with this new idea and begin taping. Obviously I need to learn a little bit about the technical aspects that are needed in order to tape a show, plus I am waiting for the Lord to lead me seeing how I don’t want to go ANYWHERE where He is not!
Me=Broadcasting? It’s parallel to oil and water.
But, if that’s where He’s sending me, then I’ll go. I’ll give it a try. I’ll listen to my Beloved as well. He always likes it when I do that! (wink)
In case you were wondering, my writings will still continue, but the radio programming may allow me to go deeper into a concept or allow me to give more guidance and encouragement to women, plus it can touch lives that this writing ministry doesn’t reach.
So, any thoughts on this project? Is this something you would be interested in hearing? Trust me, you won’t hurt my feelings if you say no! It might be my way out. (lol)
