Candid Conversations On Air

Candid Conversations On Air

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.

How To Form Your Own Prayer Circle (& why you should)

I truly believe that there is power in prayer. And I believe that prayer is multiplied when Christians come together to pray. The book of Matthew records Jesus saying, “If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done…

Faith, Fat, & Fitness

I have gained seventy pounds since my 30th birthday. Seventy. Pounds. That doubled my pants size. Literally. After the first thirty or forty pounds, my doctor assured me it was normal for women in their thirties. Not that that made me feel any better.…

Seasons May Change But These Two Things Stay The Same

I have been looking back through the blog posts and devotions I have written over the years, and I am amazed at how much has changed. The struggles I went through, the verses that encouraged me, how Jesus was with me through each moment… all of…

Going back to the beginning with Jesus

Back to the Beginning with Jesus

I grew up in the church. I fell in love with Jesus the summer before I started high school, and I was baptized two days after my 20th birthday. But life isn’t easy. One of my favorite Scriptures is Psalm 118:17 where it says,…

My Bravery (& Faith) Came To A Breathtaking Stop

I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength… all things except kill a rattlesnake. However, if I’m honest, I probably could have killed that snake if I had really needed to. Or if I would have stopped long enough to pray…

Growing My Trust in God When Life Was Beyond My Control

The Unexpected Power of Prayer (& my bitter heart)

“Pray for us?” She asked so expectantly, detailing a little bit of what was going on in their lives. She said she asked because she knew I would. And she was right, but I still felt a little bit miffed. This was like the…
