I had the pleasure this past week to interview Michelle Weidenbenner on my podcast. To listen to the interview, you can click here or there is a link embedded below the cover art for Michelle's podcast. I've "known" Michelle for a few years now. I say known in quotes because we've yet to physically meet but we've communicated so much via email, social media, and on the phone...it feels as if we have met in person.
Michelle and I visited for almost an hour doing the podcast interview, you have joy to listen to a little over twenty minutes of our conversation when you listen to the podcast. Click here to jump to the podcast, or click below this section.
Michelle and I first met because I had the privilege to review one of her books. Michelle's writing talents vary, from adult to children's books. Her faith shines through in her writing and whether you are reading one of her adult books or one of books in the Eclair series. In addition to writing her own books, Michelle is also a writing coach. She shares her gift and knowledge on writing to helps others too. In her free time, she volunteers, speaks, podcasts, and raises her grandchildren.
It's her podcast and grandchildren that bring her to us today, both here on the blog and on my podcast. Michelle's podcast, "HOPE - Support for Parents of Addicted Loved Ones" is a passion and mission for Michelle. She shares the authentic journey of her role as parent, grandparent, and caregiver. She offers support for other parents with ways she and her husband thought they were helping, only to learn they weren't. She keeps it real and her faith in Jesus is the foundation for the success, joy, love, and compassion she has and shares with her listeners.
In addition to the podcast, Michelle is working on a new website as another resource for her podcast listeners. There is a link listed below but "It's under construction" at the time of this post. Be patient and listen to her podcast to learn when it goes live.
I encourage you to take twenty minutes and listen to Michelle's interview on the podcast. I'm thankful not to be the parent of an addicted loved one. With this being said, I still catch her podcast when I can because I have friends and family who are or have been addicts. Michelle's honest and heartfelt messages encourage me and offer ways to be a better friend and family member.
