Well, I have some really fantastic friends who also happen to be fans of my radio interviews. Who are these people, anyway? It’s incredible how I’ve gotten “used” to being on a ten minute segment of a fast-paced show, despite the fact that my nerves still get to me right before the phone rings.
A couple of days before I was scheduled to discuss From Grief to Grace on EWTN’s Morning Glory, I received a text message from a good friend: Oh wow, I just saw that you’re going to be on Morning Glory on Monday, right? 🙂
I’m so excited! I can’t wait to hear it!!
I was a bit stupefied, only because I had no idea anyone listened to Morning Glory (because I don’t – ironically, I don’t listen to talk radio), nor how they would have possibly known I’d be featured on the show.
Thankfully, EWTN does a smashing job of promoting their shows and their guests, so they tweeted my appearance about five times throughout the morning I was interviewed. It was almost as if I caught a glimpse of celebrity status. Sigh.
Just kidding. It’s always a thrill to be interviewed, because I have absolutely no clue what the interviewers will ask. Sometimes it’s one host, but this time it was about three. And they could go anywhere – from asking me to clarify something I wrote in the book to quoting a sentence I wrote (oops – I forgot!) to allowing me to elaborate or philosophize a bit about a particular principle I mentioned.
It could go anywhere.
But God is always in charge, and that’s what matters most.
Take a listen for yourself.
