Faithful through Change

I believe you don’t get to host a podcast with over 200 episodes, without being faithful! I have followed Anita for many years from Moody Radio’s Midday Connection. The program was challenging, informative and it gave energy to it’s faithful listeners. The greatest gift it gave to the female audience was...a voice. Anita, Melinda and Lori along with a plethora of guests brought strength and the safety to those who wanted to grow and move forward in their personal life as well as their spiritual life. There was a huge sadness and void in many hearts when the program...shall we say ended. What didn’t end was the calling on Anita’s life for continuing the conversation. Grateful for her faithfulness to her listening audience to continue creating a place where we can grow and even challenge why we believe what we do. Anita has also been my Spiritual Director for the last 8 months. Her voice in my life has remained a constant! It still makes me smile when every now and then I hear Melinda Schmidt chatting it up with Anita😀Faith Conversations is a comforting place to land!
