Episode 1: Expect the Extraordinary– What I Learned from a Woodchuck

Welcome to The Writer’s Reverie Podcast!

The Writer's Reverie Podcast Cover

I invite you to a cozy retreat through the power of His Story! God’s riches in history, the arts, and the glories of Creation, take center stage at The Writer’s Reverie Podcast. Dramatized readings ignite a love of learning and literacy for the Christian family, as biblical truths come to life for children of all ages. Engaging topics inform and enrich seeking hearts, with sweet morsels of thoughtful reflection. Words to lighten both the day and the darkness–because telling His Story always leads to all good things and beauty.

Have you ever been stopped in your tracks by coming face to face with the “extraordinary” in the course of your very “ordinary” day?

[Tweet “Do you stop to make place for the unexpected and extraordinary?”]

This was my dilemma when God sent a woodchuck to remind me of a crucial truth.

In the premiere episode of The Writer’s Reverie Podcast, I’m sharing a spoken word dramatization of an article I have published in the Autumn 2015 issue of Ruby for Women Magazine. Click on the link and read along . . . ruminating with me in a cozy corner with a cuppa tea . . . as I share a writer’s reverie . . .

  1. Congratulations on your first podcast! It’s wonderful. Your voice is clear and mellifluous. And you make an ordinary story extra-ordinary! Keep going!

  2. Marla O'Neill says:

    “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” This is what came to mind when I first saw this. Then I listened to your podcasts and you did it beautifully! I love it!

    • Thank you, Marla. I often test my posts by reading them aloud. And, there must always be the dramatic element, too. Funny how God uses ordinary things to show Himself. I thought of that tongue twister, too. But, now–I think of Him.

  3. Janice Heck says:

    I had to smile when I heard your voice reading this piece! I pictured you with your cuppa, eager to share your woodchuck learning. Thanks for taking the time all of all your “busy” to write and voice this lesson. It’s a great reminder for us all. Well done, Good and Faithful Servant.

    • High praise from you, milady! The recording process was not nearly so painful as the “what do I do with it now” process. Google search and I have become buddies of late. Working through the answers to questions. My, how that works like a dream–just ask.

  4. Thank you for this beautiful story. I loved listening to your podcast. It’s wonderful to realize that God can use anything in nature or otherwise to get our attention. We just need to be watching and listening. I will check out Ruby For Women. Kathi
