There's Always a First Time

This morning found me here, at a most unexpected place.

Don't recognize it? That's okay! I'd never been here either.

My best friend of 38 years, has a radio program on KPDQ called "The Dad Whisperer". It's on air two times a week in the Portland area, on Mondays and Saturdays.

Her programs are geared towards dads, with specific steps they can take to build better connections between them and their daughters. You can listen to past podcasts HERE!

Today she was interviewing two dads from the Abba Project, something she leads for groups of courageous dads who are ready to commit to “kicking it up a notch” with their teenage and/or 20-something daughters over the course of a year in her life.

She is SUCH a good interviewer! It was a joy to be present today as she "did her thing" on radio!

But she didn't just interview the dads. She interviewed me too!

My topic? "How moms can support the dad-daughter connection". It was both incredibly exhilarating and terrifying to be interviewed (though thankfully it's not live; it will be aired in July).

In the end, I'm so glad I did it, and pray it will be helpful and useful to moms as they come alongside their husbands and daughters to help them have the best relationship possible.

"Thanks for having me on the show Michelle!"

  1. Connie...this is so fun that you posted about The Dad Whisperer and about how you got to be my special guest last Friday on the program. I can hardly wait until our interview airs on July 24th! I'll be sure and put the word out because the things you shared will for sure help other moms who may feel caught sometimes between their husbands and daughters (or sons). Your insights will be such a gift to moms who have you as a role model to follow. I love you so much and have new appreciation for the way you stepped out of your comfort zone to be a part of this with me. LOVE YOU! :o)
