Compassionate Love Blog: Displaying compassion for those who struggle with mental illness (c)2017 Nancy Virden, Always the Fight Ministry
It’s always fun discovering the direction an interviewer will take in a conversation. For each radio or podcast show on which I am a guest, the host receives similar background information. Yet interviews are never the same.
It is always best to let go of my agenda and allow the host to guide. After all, they know their needs and what their audience wants more than I do. Most often, I close my eyes, ask Jesus to give me the words, and follow what happens next.
Here are three examples. The themes that developed are in blue. I know you will receive insights you can use in your daily life challenges. Enjoy!
