I can’t believe I did it, I lived without Internet for 24-hours. It’s true. On Tuesday I went up to write with two friends. We were in a condo on the top of a mountain, and Internet was not an option. I’m glad to say I got a lot of writing done, but I was amazed by how much I missed in such a short time! Waiting in my in-box were lots of media requests for my new book, Generation NeXt Marriage. I’ve already done two, and I have a lot more to follow. I’m so excited to have the opportunity to talk about marriage in our generation!
I also found a very important interview request from a national teen magazine about teen pregnancy. Ooops. Thankfully I was able to make the connect. I’ll keep you updated on how that goes.
I also discovered Heath Ledger died. I discovered this when I was driving down the from the mountain and I called a friend to talk to her about something else. This is SO sad. One of my favorite movies is A Knight’s Tale. Mostly I think about his salvation–his eternity. It’s sad to think that his greatest days are behind him. This rekindles my desire to pray for Hollywood–for true hope, peace, and joy for those who seem to have everything this world offers.
Oh yes, and just as I was coming down from the mountain, I talked with a producer from a Fox morning show. Leslie and I were “this close” to traveling to New York for a mother/daughter segment. That would have been so cool! Of course, I’ve been “this close” before. I’ve talked to the producers from Dr. Phil, from Dr. Keith Ablow, now from the Mike and Juliet Show. The latter seems like a super great show, and I hope we make a connect in the future.
It’s so amazing, really, that all these requests are coming in. My word for the year is “Influence.” God has given me a voice and a platform, and my heart’s desire is to use it to tell people about Him. Anyone who will listen! So, can you pray with me about that? That I will have the opportunity to be a positive, uplifting influence, and I will be able to encourage others to take the next positive step in their relationships with others … and mostly with God.
