Earlier this week I had the pleasure of getting candid on air with Parker J. Cole on WPJC 104.5. It was a ton of fun chatting it up with her and in lieu of a regular blog post, I wanted to share our candid conversation with you. You can read the transcript, or scroll to the bottom to listen to the replay.
Parker: Hi and welcome to another edition of The Write Stuff. I’m the queen of Tuesday nights, Parker J. and thank you so much for joining me! We are going to be talking very candidly today with the founder of the Candidly Christian movement, Heather Hart.
Let me tell you, when we talk about being people of faith, especially followers of Christ, we have to understand that we have to be real about this walk, and be candid about it. Which is why we are talking about this today. Heather’s new book, called Candid Conversations, is available now on Amazon.com, and it’s already getting rave reviews. And I suspect the reason why it’s getting so many good reviews is because people are keeping it real. They like the fact that the women who have contributed stories to this book, are being honest, open and transparent. And there’s a certain level of vulnerability that comes with that, but with that vulnerability comes strength.
So, we are going to be talking to Heather today about Candid Conversations, and about Candidly Christian and what it means to be candid and what it means to be open about the Christian walk. Because like she says, even though we are Christians, life isn’t always sunshine and chocolates. Would that it was, but it’s not. And because of that we have a double responsibility to be honest about it, because when we become followers of Christ, it doesn’t mean that things get easier, it doesn’t mean that things get harder. What does get easier is that we learn over time to give all of our cares and cast them onto the Lord.
