"I believe in the beauty of everyday life and I created this podcast to share stories of real Latter Day Saint women just like you, including the struggles, triumphs, heartaches, and joys of our mortal experience."
Even though it is titled "Everyday Mormon Girl" the stories that are shared are uplifting and inspiring whether you are a member of the LDS church or not. Lindsay's very first interview was her grandma, who became widowed at 36 years old with three young children when her husband took his own life. Listening to her story was amazing and I was hooked.
About six weeks ago, Lindsay asked me if I would be a guest on her podcast and I was so honored that she would think of me. Besides, it meant that I got the chance to visit her and I'll never turn that down. I admit that I was a bit nervous because I had never done a podcast interview before. What would I sound like? Would I trip over my words like I usually do? How much would I still "talk" with my hands?
The answers to those questions are just what I thought they'd be. My voice sounded much deeper than I think it does (not quite Michael Clarke Duncan worthy, but still) I almost hardly finished a sentence before skipping onto the next thought my brain had, or I would say a lot of words with no actual information conveyed (22:30 is a prime example of this), and I gestured just as much with my hands as ever. Micheal always told me that if I ever lost my hands for some reason that I'd become a mute. Even though he was teasing me, it's sad how true that statement is in reality.
All in all, it was a touching experience for me to be a part of. I love any chance that I get to talk about Micheal as it is a healing process for me, each and every time.
If you want to brave the unfinished thoughts of my brain and the deep melodious sound of my voice, you can listen to it here. Check out the other interviews, too!
