Ordinary People. Ordinary Things. with Melissa Radke

Mar 24, 2020

There is going to be a very good chance that you think you know what I'm going to say on this podcast, but you don't. I can promise you that, because up until about 12 hours ago, I didn't even know what I was going to be saying on this podcast. I actually had an interview scheduled this week, but aren't we living in a time when we never know what's coming? This podcast wasn't in the cards for me either, so please keep listening until the end.

David Radke will be joining me on today's show. In order to earn a living, I create content. I write books. I travel and I speak. I write online courses and make funny videos. I advertise for companies that I love and trust. I do television sometimes. All of this has been upended in the last two weeks. Just like your life has been upended. All of the dates on my calendar for travel and speaking for the next several months are gone. Every one of them.

Like most of you, I have a side hustle. David and I have been working on the relaunch of Ink since November, but David suggested that we go with the relaunch of a course that would be more timely right now. He suggested we work on the relaunch of This Sucks...But God Is Good

Show Notes:

  • [04:38] Melissa agrees with David that now is the time for this course.
  • [05:03] Melissa wants to come out of this with clarity and answers. She wants to be better and not worse. Lean in and not lean out.
  • [06:22] We need to take advantage of this time and be wise with the time that we have been given. 
  • [07:00] We are going to relaunch This Sucks... But God Is Good. It's an online course that you take at your pace. It's a weekly email with videos. You get one lesson each Monday for six weeks. 
  • [08:32] You also get questions to help you clarify the concepts in your mind. Each lesson has four to five bite sized video lessons that totals around 45 minutes to an hour. The downloads are also available as audio for listening anytime.
  • [09:00] There are also summaries, outlines, and transcripts for those who like to read. And a like-minded Facebook community to interact with. Melissa will also be there and will have some live chats with you all. She will also take and post questions.
  • [09:31] She's there for you, answering your questions and challenging you as we go along. 
  • [09:55] Thousands of people have gone through this course already. If you have, go back through it and jump back into the group. The season you are in now is totally different than the season you were in.
  • [11:01] Melissa created this course based on the journey that her and David went through suffering from infertility, miscarriages, and the birth and death of their son. 
  • [11:38] It's been for every woman and man who has been angry at God, because somewhere your train went off the tracks.
  • [12:42] There is freedom in your life that is available to you through this course.
  • [13:24] This course is regularly $67. We know you have so much going on that we can't offer it to you for that price. Because of the times we are in and what's going on we are going to offer this course to everyone for $1.
  • [14:34] When you pay your dollar, you are free to pay whatever amount you want. You pay what you want to pay and what feels right for you. 
  • [17:21] If you've never taken a course like this, this is something that you have never experienced. 
  • [18:04] Melissa wants to share what she's been taught by a God that she finds so loving and so accepting.
  • [18:32] This isn't your Grandma's bible study. We meet you where you are.
  • [19:06] We love you so much.
