Barb Hudson from Making It Home Blog was a ease to talk to. She shares her story of redemption and acceptance with me on the podcast. You’re going to want to listen!
Seeking Christ’s Children
Her Giant Leap is the result of my desire to hear the stories of Christ in the stories of women entrepreneurs. I knew there were women out there who were Christians and business owners; I just couldn’t find their stories being told. Sure, there are awesome podcasts led by Christian women who inspire us (like The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey and The Homemaking Foundations Podcast). Honestly, I believe listening to Christian podcasts is a GREAT way to spend your quiet moments – if you aren’t talking to God or listening to Him whisper to you. We should be consuming more Christian content because…
- Filling your head with Christian thoughts, Scripture and ideas every day and not just on Sundays helps us keep God first in our lives.
- Listening to fellow followers educates us. We’re challenged by thought-provoking content. We’re left encouraged by the stories of other followers.
- Christian podcasts offer us content that might challenge our “lazy” Christian ways (do you treat God more like a friend who you talk to daily than someone you visit weekly on Sunday?
While Christian podcasts are inspiring and uplifting, I also wanted to hear from Christian ladies who take their faith with them daily as they sell their products or write their blogs and they proclaim it proudly! I decided to seek them out and share their stories since I wasn’t hearing their stories elsewhere!
Be A Chick-fil-A entrepreneur
What I want to find, and what I hope to personally be, is best described (by me) as being a “Chick-fil-A” entrepreneur. We all know that Chick-fil-A is a Christian-based business. And that they sell chicken. Dang. Good. Chicken.
It’s the HOW they sell chicken that makes them Chick-fil-A. The way they honor customers and how they treat those entering their doors. Their “It’s my pleasure” attitude sets them apart from other fast-food chains. Yes, their chicken is awesome but it’s their Christian (non overt) attitude that makes people return again and again.
I’m seeking those women out. Those Chick-fil-A women entrepreneurs who are first and foremost Christian and then the title “blogger,” “etsy shop owner,” etc. Don’t you want to surround yourself with those kind of women; I know I do! I want to highlight their stories and inspire others with the stories of women who are not ashamed to call themselves Christians. If you’re embarrassed to proclaim your faith, what is the purpose in anything you do with your day? We’re called to be disciples, not sellers of products.
Barb Hudson ~ Making It Home
Which leads me back to today’s guest on my podcast, Barb Hudson. Barb is a new Christian, coming to Christ nearly 2 years ago. She’s first and foremost a Christian and then she’s an aspiring blogger and lifestyle guide. She’s inspiring her readers to seek a more traditional lifestyle. To not be ashamed to call yourself “homemaker” or “stay-at-home” mom/wife. Those are noble callings. God created us for those roles. Check out her blog at Making It Home. Please listen to our conversation on the Podcast. Then, please share it with others. Maybe it’ll bless their day!
As a final note, I want to THANK YOU! I so appreciate the comments I’ve gotten from listeners of the podcast. With all my heart I believe that we’re all called to reach more people through sharing our own testimonies. God is amazing and offers love and grace to us. We need to be sharing His love. This world is rough and people can be mean. It’s the sustaining love of God that helps us to see the beauty in people and helps us love each other more. It’s a tumbling effect; the more we talk about God’s love, the more love there is out there in the world and then the love of God is spread to more people which leads to more love of each other. It’s what we’re called to do!
“the more we talk about God’s love, the more love there is out there in the world and then the love of God is spread to more people which leads to more love of each other”
I love God and I love you guys. Sharing God’s unending love for us is my favorite passion. Is there anything else that really matters?
