  • How (and why) to give your testimony during the holidays

    December 12, 2017 - 6:00am

    Dave Palmer interviews Nancy Ward (photo provided by GRN)

    David Palmer, manager of Guadalupe Radio Network’s KATH 910 AM, interviewed me for a holiday show last year. The program aired the day after Thanksgiving throughout North Texas.

    The interview session was lots of fun! The listeners got good advice on why and how to share their faith stories during the holidays. I got to promote my Sharing Your Faith Story workshops and DVD. (Please disregard the 2-for 1 promotion at the end as the broadcast as we’ve replaced it with a different promotion this season.)

    Listen to the GRN show for Friday 11-25-16 “Giving Your Testimony During the Holidays:”


    I used my experience with this interview as an example of How blogging prepares me for interviews in an earlier post. Check out the link for tips on using blogging to get ready for an interview — no matter which side of the mic you are on.

    What do you think of this kind of marketing?

The CWG Prayer

Holy Family, guide our minds, our hearts, our hands, as we write, speak, illustrate – help our words to live in union with the Word.

Teach us discipline and skill to use the talents God gives us.

Give us also insight and courage to convey God's love through our craft, and humility to be open to His divine will, shaping our lives, in loving loyalty to His Church.

In Christ's name,
