Talking adoption, food and family

I’m being a chicken.  On Thursday I was interviewed by Mary Byers on Tricia Goyer’s show Living Inspired. I talked — no, I ran at the mouth– for 54 minutes!– about adoption, food, and family. Friday they put up the link to my show — it’s at the top of her right-hand sidebar, the March 18th show.

At least half a dozen times since then I’ve ever-so-casually wandered over there, looked at the little button, hovered over it, almost clicked to listen— and then decided not to subject myself to the pain of listening to myself talking.  What if it is terrible? I just don’t want to know.

So here’s the link to the website. And the link to the itunes download. Listen if you want.

Live long and prosper.

The end.

  1. Mary – just listening in here in UK; you did a GREAT job; really enjoying hearing your story 🙂

  2. Are you kidding?! You were fantastic. Genuine, warm and confident.

  3. Mary, I can SO relate. CBN recently did a piece about me, and I could hardly bear to watch it once. I really hate seeing myself on camera and hearing myself talk. lol

  4. It was awesome! It was fun to hear you and feel like we were chatting!

  5. I’m the one who interviewed you and found you to be friendly and genuine–two great traits! I enjoyed our time immensely. No need to torture yourself! You did well.

  6. You did great, Mary! I thoroughly enjoyed listening! 🙂

  7. LOL – I completely understand how you feel! I am the Women’s Ministry Director for my church and I never listen when I do any teachings. I really dread hearing my voice and I know I would analyze what I said and nitpick myself. I do plan to listen to your link. Thanks for adding it.

  8. Enjoyed listening to your story. I’ve already purchased your cook-book ( told two other friends the HAD to buy it. They did! ) and now I can’t wait to purchase you’re other book. Thanks for all that you do.
