I recently joined my friends Alligator Robb, Cindy and Bill on the EEARSS Podcast to talk about skin cancer awareness, which is produced by Terrier TV at my alma mater. Go Terriers! It was a lot of fun to chat with them and share some important information about skin cancer and sun safety.
I now realize how challenging it is to carry--or be a guest on—a podcast. It's intended to flow like a conversation, but if you're nervous--forget about it! I'm learning that writing is definitely more my style, although I do appreciate other platforms for sharing information.
When speaking, I personally find it difficult to narrow down all I feel lead to convey within time constraints. I have so much to share about my treatment status, skin cancer awareness and how good God is, that time feels lacking. That coupled with cognitive issues from treatment, and I'm like a babbling squirrel.
Don't believe me? You can check the episode out Wednesday on their site at https://eearss.org/category/podcast/ and you'll see what I mean. While you're there, browse around and see all of the awesome environmental research support and services they provide.
I'm sure like all things, the more you podcast, the easier it becomes. For now, though, I'll stick to my stronger suit of writing. Not only can my words then flow at my own pace, but I can also be more articulate with their delivery. Besides, there's just something about written words that feels like forever.
As I write this, I can't help but consider the Bible, which contains Jesus' voice--forever written.
I'm sure Jesus would’ve been a great podcast host and guest, but I believe His timing was intentional and His words were to be forever written instead.
As I prepare for my participation in the TILs clinical trial, my thoughts are overflowing. Translating them into words will take more than a single podcast appearance or blog post, though.
Thankfully, I’m certain God’s not done writing my story and neither am I.
It’s forever written.
As long as I’m alive and breathing, I’ll stay the course with things that will outlast me.
