Yesterday was an exciting day. Well, I guess it’s fair to say we’ve had an exciting stretch of days but yesterday was exciting in a good way.
We had the opportunity to tape two radio broadcasts at Family Talk! This is our second visit to Family Talk and I have to say – those folks are the “real deal”. We always enjoy taping with Doctor, Ryan and LuAnne but yesterday was even more special because we got to take our kids. Dr. Dobson took the time to greet each one and shake their hand – and we sat in his office with everyone and talked for a few minutes before pictures were taken and we headed off to tape two broadcasts.
The kids were invited into the control room to watch the taping but I have heard it was “boring” for the little ones and so they went to a room that had been set aside for them to play in while we made some radio.
The topic of yesterday’s taping centered around marriage, which is something Jay and I are very passionate about. We also talked about homeschooling, the logistics of traveling in an RV with 9 people, what it means to really TRUST God’s leading in your life, making time for your spouse, putting kids “second” (yes, that’s right) and even had a little conversation about government. It was interesting and I hope, encouraging. When we have an air date, I’ll be sure to let you know.
If you are like me, you spent your childhood listening to Dr. Dobson on the radio. It was a privilege to meet him and spend some time with his staff. And in case you’re wondering, I have to say, he is exactly like the voice you hear on the radio. Gentle, humble, kind – wise. I hope you’ll take a moment to check out his new ministry, Family Talk, and listen in. Dr. Dobson’s heart and passion to see families strengthened and God’s people walk in the truth is just as refreshing now as it was in the 80′s. I thank God for his ministry!
The Family Talk staff took lots of pictures, too – and I’m looking forward to seeing them! As soon as we receive them, I’ll post them.
Meantime… here is what our life in Colorado Springs is centering around:
Thankful for opportunities to grow!
