Chasing Hard Podcast

I joined the ranks of many and started a podcast, Chasing Hard Podcast. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now. In fact, I tried something a few years ago that resembled a podcast before I knew what a podcast was. I interviewed people on Zoom and embedded the interview here on this blog. The first one was Talking With Trevor a co-worker (at the time) and an incredible young man.

I liked talking with people about hard things, real things, so I kept doing it until it fizzled out because it wasn’t a thing then.

The next episode was Talking With Megan, Trevor’s mother. It was a good talk. She is pretty amazing herself which makes sense because she raised Trevor. The next episode was Talking With TiyaLynn. What a grea conversation that was! She founded Critically Loved a nonprofit for “navigating life with a chronically or critically ill child” because she’s been there, done that. We were getting into chasing hard topics before it was even a concept in my brain.

My last (and favorite) episode was Talking With Madison About Alopecia. She is my wise-beyond-her-years niece who has bravely and gracefully dealt with Alopecia.

I’ve been through some things in my decades of life. I haven’t always dealt well with those things. I’ve screwed it all up a time or two, but I finally came to the realization that God knows. He knew from the very beginning. He isn’t trying to come up with a Plan B when something goes awry.

Chasing Hard embodies the concept that we, as Christ followers are called to hard things whether we like it or not, whether we chose it or not or whether we feel up to the challenge. God has a plan and purpose for each of us and it doesn’t always look like the way we envisioned. Chasing Hard Podcast is a thirty-minute podcast talking with people who have and are walking through hard things but not alone. We each have the opportunity to choose how we will respond when hard things come our way.

I launched Chasing Hard Podcast on May 3, 2023, with an introduction. It was a little rough, not going to lie, but now I have an editor. The people I have met and talked with has been such a treat for me and I am excited for you to listen in. The goal, of course, is to give the listeners encouragement and the knowledge they are not alone.

I invite you to come along for the ride. It’s going to be great.

Let me know how I can pray for you.
