This is a long read. Please, read it to the end.
I have looked forward to this day. I mean, one year of podcasting effortlessly and consistently. It can only be Sweet Daddy God. Consistency is such a big word for me. I could start an endeavour with so much excitement, then as the journey progresses i Ioose interest. I remember asking Daddy God to help me.. Let me be real with y’all. At some point it was hard releasing an episode every week but we know Daddy God always comes through for us.
For me podcasting isn’t just for fun, even tho I enjoy every bit of it. Podcasting for me is Purpose, a sort of Calling. Of course, I remember the Word Daddy God gave me in October 2019. I knew He was asking me to start a podcast, but I needed confirmations. I had no idea what a podcast was. I was studying Ephesians chapter 1 and I saw – ” Start a podcast ” it is written in my Bible ( Nahhh….don’t check yours, it’s not there or may it is. Lol) I needed more than just that to start. Of course, I gave Daddy God three reasons why I wasn’t qualified to start a podcast. He gave me one reason why I should. Let me tell you my dumb excuses.
1. Who will listen to me?
2. I am not a good communicator
3. What do I have to say?
HIS reasonI have called you Lois, blessed you Lois and increased you Lois … You guessed that right. That was from Isaiah 51: 2 .. Y’all know I love when God speaks to me from His Word. HE went on to say, ” I am not calling you to start the podcast because I want to equip you..noo…you’ve been equipped ” Other confirmations came.
Around that time, I attended (The Global Leadership Summit 2019 UI) and Liz Bohannon ‘s session was it for me. She challenged me. That was how I started the podcast.
The core message on the podcast is GOD’S LOVE. I have seen people get saved, encouraged and strengthened by just listening to the podcast. People mail me and countless times my response has been tears and honour to Daddy God. Some weeks ago, somebody asked me how do I do it…she was amazed, she said every episode is powerful..I told her it is God and I have nothing to do with the message. I mean, I don’t mean to be overly spiritual or maybe I am….It is sweet Daddy God. I am being honest.
One year of podcasting, God takes the Glory. How can I? Oh…the times that I thought there was no message on the podcast – Daddy God came through. I mean, that was when I will go to bed and a person will meet me in my dream, this person starts teaching me in my dream…I wake up and I discover it was actually a podcast episode. I record the episode, publish and people get blessed tremendously. So, how can I say it hasn’t been Daddy God?
You know one recently melted my heart. A stranger sent me a voice message on the podcast. He said, I run a mini book club and your podcast is played in between our break. When I heard that, tears just followed freely…I was so happy. Thank you, Daddy God. On the podcast, I am so vulnerable. It is deliberate. I want my audience to know me for me. I don’t claim to have it all together because I don’t. I have my struggles – save me Jesus… I don’t claim to be all knowing because I am not. I am just a girl that wants to reach out to people with God’s Love. I want people to hear my voice and be encouraged because of the God on the inside of me. The message will always be God’s Love. I reach out to people both offline and online.
There are countless testimonies I will share soon. If you listen to the podcast, you know I love to share testimonies of God’s Love. I celebrate all my listeners. Over three thousand listeners from more than 30 countries of the world.. Thank you so much. I celebrate all those who have and are still supporting me. God has blessed you.

…So, what is next? I don’t know. I trust Daddy God even with blindfolds. I will keep taking those baby steps. However, I do know the path of the righteous shines more and more. We don’t know a better yesterday.So, one year of podcasting?
Dear Daddy God,
