It’s time to get things rolling, and I am incredibly excited to begin. My dream, I hope, is finally being realized — just in time for a new year!
But, unfortunately, I don’t have the first episode for you yet. That’s because I need your help.
My Problem… and A Solution
Over the last couple of years, I have loved doing Q&As, but I wasn’t really satisfied with the end results. I received important questions that I didn’t feel mature enough to answer, and some of my answers to other questions felt lacking. At the same time, I regularly had eye-opening conversations with my mom, dad, brothers, and friends that I wanted to share.
In those discussions, I learned countless things about my faith and life, and I wished other teen girls could listen in. No exaggeration, some of the wisdom I’ve received in those “everyday” conversations has been life-changing. But I ran into a problem: no one I talked to had the time to write and edit a blog article – most people felt too intimidated by the idea or were simply too busy. And most people didn’t feel ready to be interviewed in a podcast format either.
So, I needed an alternative. An alternative that could show that wisdom isn’t just found in famous book authors, ministry leaders, and speakers, but is also found in the people who walk by us day-by-day. An alternative that could share the wisdom of the people around me, and simultaneously encourage my listeners to seek out the “everyday” people around them. I needed an alternative that was low-stress but also deep and intentional.
And so, after many idea revisions and returns to the drawing board, the plan for the Joyful Creations podcast was born.
I’ve wanted to start a podcast for a while now, but I finally have my focus and goals clear.
Introducing… Joyful Creations Podcast
Joyful Creations Podcast is a podcast where I, Rachel, sit down and talk with my favorite people to discuss and answer your questions.
I’ll invite a wide array of people on my podcast to co-host with me, from my parents and siblings to my friends and mentors, to whomever else God puts in my path. We’ll be discussing topics especially applicable to Christian teen girls, like
- dating and relationships
- self-image & eating disorders
- lifestyle tips
- time management
- planning for the future
- …essentially the topics discussed on this blog!
But it all begins with questions from you, my lovely readers and (soon-to-be) listeners. I need questions to spark the discussions; they can be deep, they can be fun, just throw ’em at me!
I’m looking for questions that open discussions; questions that begin the conversations you want to hear.
And, one by one, I’ll devote episodes to discussing your questions.
How to Submit Questions
For this startup group of questions, I’m collecting them using the form below. After that, you’ll be able to access a question submission page through my blog menu or submit audio questions through the podcast host, Anchor.
I am so very excited to begin this with you all!!
Please be sure to share this, so I can have plenty of questions for my first bulk-recording sessions!
Thank you so much, friends!!!
God bless you, and I hope you have a fantastic rest of your day!
