Inspiration & Interviews

Stephen Michaud Quote
The dark moments give you hope to get through.. God has a purpose. ~ Stephen Michaud

When my editor for the Idaho State Journal sent me the email regarding a possible story on a local singing/songwriter… I felt God’s inspiration wash over me & to accept the assignment.

Then I watched this:

As Jaci said, “goose bumps” happen… & just as she felt in that moment… I felt honored too… The privilege to share in his journey, to tell his beautiful tale, to showcase his talent, & to share in his message of his faith in God… I felt God’s sweet spirit filling my heart with a passion for his encouraging story…

When I listened to Jaci and I watched her Facebook video {See Jaci’s call to Stephen…} of her surprise phone call to Stephen… I felt God’s hands guiding my request as I drafted an email to her management team for an interview with the Latin/Christian Music icon…

With Sixteen #1 radio hits, 17 albums, 7 Dove Awards, 3 RIAA Gold Records and 3 RIAA Platinum records… I was sure the actress/radio talk show host/ busy wife and mother of two could be out of my reach for an interview…

After all… Who am I???

I’m just a little Multimedia Journalist with a small little newspaper in a small town in Idaho & a few publications with only a few syndications…

I am not well known. I am not famous.

Guided by inspiration ~ Empowered through my faith…

God took the wheel ~ While I did the work…

Two people who trust me to tell their story…

Two people who trust in God on a daily basis…

Jaci Velasquez ~ Stephen Michaud:

An interview founded on inspiration & an article embraced by God…

This is their story…

… … …             The Link Is Coming            … … …

God has bigger plans for this story than any of us could possibly imagine…

Faith is what drives Jaci, Stephen, & I…

Each on our own has put God at the head of our individual life’s journey…

Now forever intertwined…

God’s divine path continues to give proof that with faith, trust in God, a belief in your talents, the love of your family, and a willingness to follow God’s inspiration… Anything is possible!!!

My hubby is in the film/media/entrepreneur industry& syndication really realllllllyyy REALLLLLLYYY matters in his business. Six months ago, my blog was used for dummy post as a hater fest from a cyber-stalker. This reality opened my eyes as to how my content could be manipulated, altered, & republished. I also learned about website rules & regulations, ways of coping with plagiarism, & the ability to protect your content by using your own business platforms, self-publishing, using a publisher, & article syndication for releasing content using contributor based websites. Syndication matters. To read more on the subject of syndication from Today I Found Out, Feed Your Brain use this link {What it means for a show to be syndicated and how the practice got started}& expand your mind…

Syndication and Multi-Media

Did you know “Houston, we have a problem” is a misquote??? The actual quote by James A. Lovell, Apollo Expeditions to the Moon, & used in the feature film, Apollo 13, is actually, “Houston, we’ve had a problem.”

Misquotes, copy cats, or mimicking ideas happens all the time… Syndication makes it less likely because the material is licensed. To read more {My Family Share article has a twin… Sort of… It’s a misquote yet I’m flattered} on how, why, what, etc… Then decide how you feel & do what is best for your content, blogs, media, etc.

Jump In… Life is easy.

Jump In Life
Guess what??? Yeah ~ I sometimes get scared too. I worry people will judge me. I worry about this & that. I worry I might fail. I pause & for just a moment I question myself… & then… I remember a lesson in life (& my faith in God) that I learned when I was a young & working as a Camp Counselor for the YMCA: Jumping is easy… Regret is challenging… Do you have what it takes in the moment when you need to be AWESOME??? #learn2trustYOU #YesYouCan #alessandratoscanelli #BeBold

 

Life is meant for living & learning…

Mistakes happen. Risks Happen. So what???

Go ahead… Make a SPLASH ~ Make waves ~ Trust the Journey.

You will never experience greatness if you never take a chance…
