Well, here we are…I can’t believe it- we actually made it to a hundred and eight podcast episodes….. but the winds of change are blowin’. ..
There’s some exciting activity happening on the screenwriting front so I’m stepping into that flow as I continue to hone my skills as a life coach. And in order to do that well, I’m going to have to hit “Pause” on the podcast for a bit.
Hoping to take up space in a different realm now- the world of television. So hopefully this means you’ll get to see a new tv show maybe in the next year or two? I don’t know how long it takes…
I’d love to keep you posted on the progress. For video updates on the tv pilot, development, production, If it gets picked up, etc, etc…, go to thelisteningwell.com and sign up under “Blog/Subscribe RSS.”
I won’t flood your inbox; don’t worry, but i will send you a short, entertaining video from time to time to give you an idea of what we’re working on so feverishly over here in the way of a tv pilot. My dream is to create a show that isn’t preachy in any way but that reflects some of the values you and i hold dear.
Like… a loving family.
Instead of complaining about all the negative and unrealistic- in many cases- portrayals of parents and kids that we see depicted on tv shows, I want to offer an alternative… a realistic, flawed picture of what a marriage can look like. Between a man and woman who love God.
That’s what we do right? As Christians, we bring Kingdom culture in to the world…The characters I’m writing are far from righteous (just like the rest of us) and we certainly are not going to sneak a scripture verse in every episode or anything like that… We so want to honor the platform.
When the Spirit brings any of this to mind, can I ask you to please pray for me? As we start pitching the idea to production companies and put together a “sizzle reel” and stuff…
We’ve gotten good feedback from some pros on the idea. I’ll share more with you as SOON as I can, on those video updates here on the blog, i promise. I so want to tell you the name of the series. At least what I’m HOPING to call it. But i can’t just yet… till we’ve secured it. So much red tape and stuff… but we’re not even there yet. I’m jumping way ahead of myself.
Sign up at thelisteningwell.com for video updates and we’ll keep ya posted all along the way. I promise.
SO – today will be my last episode of this show for a while. All 108 episodes will stay live though so you can still share them with a friend- especially if you think they’d benefit from some coaching. Lots of you have been sharing interviews i’ve done with different people over the last 5 years- very cool. So as i step down from this particular microphone now in February of 2021, the podcast archives will still be accessible on the website thelisteningwell.com OR on any podcast platform.
Thank you for doing that by the way- speaks volumes when your friend receives a share from you… that’s better than any advertising I could ever pay for. Means so much when you share an episode. You can’t imagine the feeling I get when someone reaches out on insta and tells me “oh my friend sent me your podcast… and I’m listening to all the archived episodes…. from way back at the beginning. “
Some of the most shared episodes have been Amy Grant, of course- the queen! She was a 2 parter Ep 12 and 13. Colleen Radcliffe, the women’s director at Fbc 🙂 which is my church here in nashvegas, TN…. Colleen Is Ep 90. The late great Cindy Hamilton, who granted her interview just after finding out she had stage 4 cancer…. What a remarkable life we celebrated together. Cindy was Ep 77.
Also the Marreros were Ep 10 and 11- they talked about losing their beloved son and brother Leland.. that was a really sweet one too. So meaningful and redemptive. And healing… every parent and sibling needs to hear that one.
My own Blair did an interview which is one of my personal favorites- Ep 23. And the Bart Millard one was some hot tape too… back at Ep 61. And lastly Mary Beth Chapman is captivating and funny on Ep 50.
And if you’ve ever left a review for this show, I wanna thank you for that. If you haven’t done that in a while, pls consider doing that again? People really do read those and when someone is looking for content like this which is Christ centered…people are searching for a way to write a better story for their life. they pay attention to your words.
Remember, when you come to the website- that’s thelisteningwell.com
The curiosity call is always free and if it doesn’t feel like a right fit for life coaching, then I’ll help you find a coach that does…. I believe in it that much.
I’m excited to start really pouring my time and energy into this tv pilot I’m working on and coaching my clients to write a better story for their own lives. The 2 worlds of life coaching and screenwriting- blend beautifully together… This is me trying to step into God’s flow. My own life coach has helped me so much in this- to see how writing and coaching go hand in hand…
