Here’s the podcast in case you missed the show…it’s in two parts.
What an awesome time with Lynn Austin and Cynthia Ruchti. I originally did these interviews in June of 2013 when I attended the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) … I was in a little 10 x 10 curtained off area in the middle of a bunch of other media folks doing interviews, so that explains the background noise!! ICRS is a huge industry event for Christian publishers of books, music, and….hmmmm….I used to call it Jesus Junk….but you know, gifts, apparel, jewelry, bumper stickers, mints, and who knows what else!
Just a few hours after interviewing Lynn Austin, I attended the Christy Awards and watched as she was inducted into the Christy Awards Hall of Fame, as 16 out of 18 of her historical fiction titles had won Christy Awards. I especially loved her transparency about getting to a place in her Christian life where she felt stagnant, and how Jesus met her in the desert. She really is a picture of serene grace…love her spirit! More about her at www.lynnaustin.org.
And then my time with Cynthia was just so good. I have always been encouraged by this woman of God, and this interview was no different. Such profound wisdom to help us all address the extreme challenges we face due to the bad choices of others…and even if we’re not facing such hardship, chances are we know someone who is who we can reach out to and comfort with what we learn from Cynthia!
