I have missed you all so much! I seriously can't wait for our regular schedule! Which, as a reminder,
Morgan and I are still working on the topics. Please let us know if you have any ideas. We are ALWAYS open to hearing them!!
This week we are chatting about.... anything! Literally, you choose and we will read. :)
I hope you all have been able to read and enjoy the stories and pictures from NASavannah! I wish we could get together all of the time, but unfortunately that isn't the case. Morgan and I have already begun talking about next year's weekend! We will start gathering your interest and such later this Fall. If you have any suggestions or ideas for that, we are all ears, as well.
Ok. You guys.
We have some very, very exciting news to share.
Are you ready?!
Morgan and I... will be traveling up to Boston next month
TO BE ON CATHOLICTV!!!!
I was contacted by the marketing director (Hi, Bonnie!) for the network back in May after she had been following some of my tweets AND blog posts, namely Not Alone Series. :) :) She wanted to know if I would be interested in being interviewed (on the LIVE show) and sharing the story of NAS as a way to encourage, inspire and remind people of the importance of community.
Wait. Wait. Wait. What the WHAT? I must have read and reread her email a million times. You want ME to do what?? To say that I freaked out would be an understatement. I forwarded the email to Morgan, my mom and Martha right away. Was I dreaming? Was she really asking if I wanted to be interviewed? On TV?
After I calmed down and composed myself (ha!), I wrote back, and said "of course I would be interviewed!" ... this happens all the time.
Anyway, as I got more deets, I asked if it was possible to interview both Morgan and I. As you all know, the Not Alone Series wouldn't exist without her (well, all of YOU reading this right now, too). We are a team. I couldn't justify talking about our beloved Not Alone Series without her. So, I asked, and Bonnie said, sure!!
And there you have it. We will be interviewed by Father Robert Reed and Jay Fadden on the live, 30-minute show, This is the Day. God clearly wants more people to know that they are not broken, they are not lost and they are not left behind. And who are we to say no to God?!
Date: Friday, September 12, 2014
Time: 10:30am EASTERN
How: watch it LIVE online at CatholicTV.com (when the page opens, just click "watch" on the upper left corner) or on your actual television if you are lucky enough to have it**
Another option: If you can't watch it live, no worries! The show archives it's episodes for a few weeks. I will post the link here afterwords, on Twitter, etc. :)
Social Media: Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to see our adventures in Boston! We will use #NASBoston throughout the weekend, so if you want to chat about it, too... then use it, too! :)
If anything changes we will let you know! :)
I am so humbled by all of this. I am also nervous and still kind of freaking out. Please, please pray for us. Pray that our words and story of NAS touches at least one other person. Pray that I don't fumble over those words too badly and be really, really awkward. haha. Thank God Morgan and I are doing this together... it's not as scary!!
St. Therese (patroness of CatholicTV), pray for us!
And, seriously... another thank you to all of you. I say it all of the time, but it doesn't make it any less true. This series would cease to exist if you ladies didn't participate, read, comment, email, pray, etc. I am so proud to be part of such an awesome group of fun, eclectic and godly women. You inspire me more than you will ever know!
