Training your children requires two hands. In one hand you must have a strong grip on the seriousness of rebellion . . . and in the other hand you must have a firm grasp on the heart of your child.
I was asked to do a workshop at a ladies retreat in Montana last week. The subject was on Child Training. As I was studying this and putting together some notes, I found myself at a bit of a loss. You see, I’d never done any speaking like this and had no idea how long it would take to get through my notes. So I sat down and recorded myself going through the outline I had prepared for the workshop. It ended up I had to talk fast just to make it fit within the 30-minute time allotment for the workshop.
Thus the idea of a podcast was born.
I thought, “I’ve went to all this work to come up with an outline and notes – why don’t I just put it on the blog?” Kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. Of course, I could have just typed it all up in a long series of posts . . . but that would take quite a while. And folks with short attention spans might wander off amongst my long rantings.
So we will do this in a two-part podcast series. I could have put it all in one podcast, but I’m only allowed to upload files of 64mb at a time. This limits how big of a podcast I can upload. Besides, who seriously wants to listen to me talk for an hour? I don’t even want to do that!
