My Very First Video Interview!

Lori PortkaMy Photo

As part of her new "What's Real" video serious, the amazing woman & artist Lori (above) & I talk about the inspiration behind my book, On the Other Side of Fear, and all the little challenges/faith-strengtheners along the way.  This is yet another one of those steps out of my comfort zone, a stretch for sure--a good, feel-the-fear-and-do-it-anyway kind of stretch.  In watching this I learned a lot about myself.  Like, I play with my hair...a lot and I like to say the work "exactly."  For some reason (maybe because I'm constantly moving), I'm a little on the blurry side.  Hmm. 

Smiles.  Oh well...hope you enjoy.  Since, no matter what I do, I can't seem to make the video work here on my site, I will transfer you now to Lori's beautiful HERE to join us in our sweet conversation.

P.S:  Below is the quote I was stumbling over later in the interview....
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  Marianne Williamson
