It was super fun to have a radio interview in my own home town and have friends tell me, “I heard you on my way to work!” Perry Lahaie of Moody Radio raised the question, “What about when God’s dream for my life doesn’t match my own dream?” You can hear that part of the conversation about about 12:40.
Marni is a sweet, energetic host, filled with wisdom and insight. It was a joy to talk with Marni about Control Girl, and an honor to be included in her annual “Bible Study Expo”! Marnie interviewed twelve authors about their newly released Bible studies. You can listen in to last year’s guests, and sign up for next year’s expo at biblestudyexpo.com.
I loved the open-ended interview style of Lynne Ford on the The WBCL Radio Network. Together, we tackled questions like, “How should I respond to my controlling mother?” And “What should I do about my 7-year-old who wants to eat and wear whatever she wants?” Lots to think about, as we consider the path of #ControlGirltoJesusGirl! Listen in here.
I enjoyed this interview so much. Here’s a quote:
“Surrender can happen even in the little moments of the day. Rather than caving into my own selfish desires; putting that on hold, and saying, ‘Not my will but Yours be done. Not my will but Yours be done.’ So I say start with your tongue. James compares our tongue to a rudder. If we want to go in a different direction with our lives; if we want to go from Control Girls to Jesus Girls, let’s start with what we say. Don’t we as women use our tongues to get control? We try to say things, manipulate, put pressure…even just sighs. We use these things to get control. If we want to live in surrender to God and let Him be in control, I say start with your tongue.
So, that might involve 57 times of not saying something that you would ordinarily say to get control of the situation, but just being quiet, and gracious and kind, and waiting on God to move in a way that you can’t foresee how God’s going to turn this around, but you’re determined that it’s not going to be your tongue that’s controlling a situation. If we will do that–surrender in the little moments with our tongue, we start changing, we become different… Surrender does change us. If we behave like Jesus did, saying, “Not my will but yours be done,” we start becoming like Jesus.”
What a charming woman, Judy is. I so enjoyed speaking with her about my new book, Control Girl. “Encounter” was of my favorite interviews.
Here’s what I got to share in closing:”Taking control never brings the peace and security and hope that you’re trying to achieve. It leads the other way. It makes everyone miserable. And while surrender is not easy–it’s a difficult, uphill path, I think it leads to exactly what we’re looking for. It leads to that settled hope, knowing that God is in control and that we don’t have to be.”
The Harvest Show (Part 2) 3.28.17
So thankful for the opportunity to talk about the topic of control on the Harvest Show. “It’s a burden, people!” Valerie said in closing. Yes, indeed. But aren’t you so thankful that we don’t have to carry this burden of control? God carries it, so we don’t have to.
I love Athena’s beautiful faith and encouragement for women! I so enjoyed being interviewed by Athena Dean on her program “Always Faithful”, which aired on KCIS 630 in Seattle, WA.
