The BrooklynBorn & Hayburner-Cast??????

Friday, February 28, 2014

I don’t know how many Sparkers out there have the same experience as I do, but when I’m running, new thoughts and ideas enter my brain. I think of solutions to problems and do some of my deepest thinking. I had one such idea come to me today.

I work as a music minister for my church. I’m also the webmaster. My husband is a mechanical engineer. This is his “real” job as in - “ he gets paid to do this.” He also serves the church as a deacon. We are both technology geeks. We started listening to all kinds of podcasts years ago when they were brand new. At the time, we thought about starting our own podcast. For various reasons (not the least of which was finding the time to prepare for them), that idea never came to fruition.

Today on the treadmill, it suddenly occurred to me… my husband and I lead the “Health & Holiness” ministry at our church. What about a podcast that focuses on our physical and spiritual health? But of course, there is still the matter of finding time to record. My husband’s job is pretty demanding.

Then I remembered something my daughter said recently about my mother, who is retired. I needed to ask her to help me out but I didn’t want to inconvenience her. My daughter said, “She’s retired, Mom. What else has she got to do?”

My mother has written dozens (maybe a couple hundred) blog entries by now on SparkPeople. If you’ve read anything of hers, you know what a fantastic writer she is, and a fount of ideas. What you don't know is that she is also an incredible public speaker.

What do you think? Should Brooklyn Born and Hayburner start a podcast? Would you listen? Suggestions for a name are welcome!

    I do believe you should get on that right away! I'm right there too, with a listening ear! This is an absolutely FANTASTIC idea, that God put in your spirit!

    Be blessed,

    I think you should go for it, if you feel you have a passion for doing it! (One response to two blogs, how's that?!)
