5 years of MAD

Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of when the MAD Christian Radio Show hit the airwaves for the first time. Which meant it was also my fifth anniversary of being on the radio.

These past five years of doing MAD have been absolutely incredible. As a young kid I played "radio station" with my siblings, but never dreamed that one day I would have my own show, but so much has changed since then. I've gone from a shy kid lacking confidence to someone who is actually comfortable on the air. And not only comfortable, but feeling fully alive and that's a great thing to be.

I've been asked a lot recently "what do you think is next?" and honestly I don't have an answer for that. I never could have imagined that all of this would have happened when the radio show first started and I have no idea what God has in store for the show or myself in five years.

I do however know that in the short term for me personally some really exciting things are going to be happening. I've been offered a part time job writing for a national countdown show and I have decided to accept that- it was quite an honor to be asked and its something that I really want to do, even if it means letting go of a few other things in my life. Another highlight coming up soon is of course my book being released- wow, I'm still having a hard time believing that one.

I mean how blessed can one person be? I'm only 23 and I'm living my dream. Yes my life has being filled with some hard things and I'm still facing a few personal challenges, but who am I to complain?

I'm living a dream. I love what I do. What more could I ask for?
