Can I be honest with you? I’m super excited about Season 2 of Conversations With Alexis, but not all the work that comes with it. I’ve held off on the release date for a minute just so I could get all of the behind the scenes lined up – but also because once you say GO – it’s on. There is no stopping, no slowing down, no wait a minute…it’s just full speed ahead. Every week a new, edited, ready to go conversation and all that comes along with it.
I LOVE having the conversations. That is my most favorite part. After inviting and scheduling and planning you get to sit across from this stranger and ask them any and everything. I LOVE IT! I believe I can have a conversation with anybody (as long as I have a yes from God) and once I have that, it fascinates me to sit across from someone and ask about their journey and share that with others. It inspires me and I pray it inspires you!
What you don’t see is the prayer asking God, who should be on? When will the invited guests start responding? Lord help me ask the right questions that will bring out what you want shared? Let me send the invite. Let me get the booking. Let me confirm the interview. Let me remember how to record via face time and insert in garage band and edit. Let me figure out why my mic is low but the guests are loud and clear. Let me get the bio and headshot. Let me update the website and edit the conversation. Let me create the cover art. Let me get all of the info. uploaded, edited, sent to google, apple and soundcloud all before 6am on Thursday morning. Now let me start all over again in addition to living my life, doing other things and carrying out other visions.
I know it sounds like a lot and it is. But it’s what I believe is my assignment right now. That’s why I used the word LET. I believe it’s an honor and a privilege for God to let me do any of this. God show me how, escort me through it, hold my hand and give me wisdom. God give me the umph to go on when it’s just you and me in the midnight hour getting it done.
Why did I tell you all of this? So you would be encouraged. Your dream may not be easy, but you are graced to do it and get through. To not only survive but thrive and shine. I believe in you and I know we got this and God has us. Welcome to Season 2.
