I'm Gonna Be On Radio!

5 Acres & A Dream 
TheBook: The Challenges 
of Establishing a Self-
Sufficient Homestead 
Shortly after 5 Acres & A Dream The Book came out I was contacted by Scott Terry, who hosts Christian Farm and Homestead on blogtalkradio.com. He invited me to do an interview on his show about my book. What an honor! If you'd like to hear the show live over your computer, mark your calendars for Friday, January 17 at 8 pm EST and save the following link -


If you can't make it for that date and time, you'll be able to find the podcast in the Christian Farm and Homestead archives via the same link.

If you aren't familiar with Scott's show, do check it out. His archives are full of interesting and informative interviews, all of interest to both farmers and homesteaders. It's a great resource.

  1. It is well deserved, my friend. You have been a light to so many!

  2. Thank you one and all. However, I feel too socially challenged to be up to it really. I like writing better than speaking because I can stop and think about what I'm trying to say!

  3. Excellent! I'm looking forward to hearing it. I listen to that podcast occasionally. I'm glad you've reminded me of it.

  4. Congrats, Leigh. Like you I prefer the "shadows" to the limelight. All I can suggest for nerves is that you focus on your breathing and talk as though you are only talking to the presenter :)

    Wish I could listen in...

  5. Nice, glad for you! I'll be listening in.

  6. Leigh,

    Congratulations my friend, what an honor and privilege to talk about your book live on the radio.
    You'll do just fine talking live, think of it as if you're on the telephone with a friend.

  7. Congratulations! I am so very excited to tune in! Your blog, well your life really, has been such a help and inspiration to me. May our Lord continue to bless your endeavors. Can't wait for the interview!!!

  8. Hey, our very own Leigh is on her way to being famous! (I have a feeling you'd like to be famous as much as I would. I've always said rich wouldn't be too bad, but I'll skip the famous, thank you very much.)

    Seriously, your information is of so much value to so many. Great to hear this radio interview will spread the word (your words!) all the more and make folks aware of your great book.

  9. Congrats! Wishing you all the best for this.

  10. Fantastic. I am so glad for you. The New Year is off to a great start.

  11. Leigh, the curse of introverted thinkers!!! I can't think while I'm talking so I have to think it all out BEFORE I start talking. A live interview?? I will start praying for you now. Not that you need it, but I need it...anxiety and all. lol
    congratulations this is great!!

  12. How exciting!!! I didn't even know this radio show existed. I will definitely be listening!


  13. Leigh,
    I'm Glad that the book is getting so much attention! I'm about 1/2 way thru it and have been working out what kind of review I will give it when I finish reading. At this point, I do know it will be a very deserved 5 star review.

  14. Congratulations, Leigh! I received your book as a Christmas gift and I'm so excited to read it. Good luck on your interview!

  15. Congratulations Leigh! I have started your book & am loving it so far. I have a Kindle but for reference materials I like paper so your book is definitely going to go on my reference book shelf. I'll write my formal review on Amazon once complete.


Welcome to 5 Acres & A Dream The Blog! Thank you for taking the time to join in the conversation.
