As a child, I lived in Washington State, a gorgeous part of the country where people say "roof" like "rough," and rhyme "root" with "foot." When I moved to Texas at age 17, people would look at me and say things like, "you're not from around these parts, are ya, darlin"?"
I still get asked that question from time to time, even though I've spent all of my adult life here. The funny thing is, whenever I go to a northern state, I get the same question! Or sometimes, people there will comment on my "cute" southern diction!
Today, you can decide for yourself whether or not I sound Texan. I'm the guest on The Declare Conference podcast with Heather MacFadyen (God Centered Mom), and I'm talking about "Making the Most of Waiting."
Here is what Heather says in the podcast description:
During this podcast we chat about:
Rachel’s story of patience and faith in the waiting.
Her newest book project. . .”Flash the Donkey” (and why I’m not interested in owning a donkey at this time).
Reasons why God had her wait for her book dream to come true
How “you can wish away your days for better ones ahead. But you should look for the good things while waiting. God is there.”
3 tips for using blogging & social media to support your home-based business
Realizing people buy from people they like and they know.
Finding the platform you feel most comfortable connecting with others.
Share your life not just your art/product.
Decorating a gigantic hotel conference space with well-placed vignettes.
Lastly, will Flash the Donkey make an appearance at Declare? (hee hee)
I'd LOVE for you to stop over and give a listen! It's only about 20 minutes long and I had such a blast talking with Heather. Simply click on the link above to find the download. And you can find it (and all the podcast episodes) on itunes as well. It is free, by the way.
I hope you have an awesome weekend! Or should I say, "I hope Y'ALL have an awesome weekend!"
I'll let you decide if I sound Texan or not.....
