Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Our Mother’s Day Special Guest was selected for several reasons:

While interviewing a guest, I often ask “Who was a driving force behind your accomplishments”?

One of our previous guest glowed when speaking of the person who made the difference- her Mother! At the end of the interview I asked the guest, if I could meet her Mother. I had to meet the Mother, little did I know the impact of this little woman and how it has been felt by most of Asheville!

May I introduce to you our special guest, Ms. Luella Whitmire

Luella Whitmire is a native of Asheville, the Mother of 3 daughters and 1 son, a community activist and the Pastor at Living Water Ministries located in Asheville NC.

I interviewed Pastor Whitmire over a Month ago but held back the episode because I had to have her as the Mother’s Day focus. She was our choice because of her relationship with her children, her relationship and service for God and His children, and  the difference she has made in our community.

I hope you will join us Sunday May 12th Noon to 1pm to be inspired by Pastor Luella Whitmire. This Mother, Woman, Child of God had to be our Positively Living Mother of the Year on Mother’s Day 2013.

As told by Leslie Godbold , Host of Positively Living
written by Dee Bolin

This Sunday at Noon- 1pm turn your radio to AM 1350. You will hear a woman’s gentle southern voice. Let me introduce the person behind that voice… Leslie Godbold , Host of Positively Living based in Asheville NC. Here is my story….
Towards the end of 2011, I owned and ran Asheville Stagers, one of the top home staging and redesign businesses in Western North Carolina. I had worked hard to start and grow my business into a successful business I was proud of and a positive reputation among my peers.
Most importantly, I was also a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ. I had a comforting home on top of a hill situated North of Asheville NC. It was sort of remote since the only access was via a rough dirt road. But it was a beautiful place to relax and carry on enlightening conversations with my Lord and Savior. My personal relationship with Jesus Christ is very dear to me!
My New Year resolution for 2012 was to step out from my office and home to meet a fewmore people utilizing business networking groups. The first meeting I attended I was scared to death to speak with anyone. (Much less give a 30 second spill on my business.)In fact, I was so nervous, my asthma kicked in.  But I survived it and met a few very nice people. The thought “Ok I did it, once is enough” popped in my head however that is not me. I don’t quit! So I went again the next month.
By February as I prayed for inspiration, I obtained the knowledge that there wassomething I was being led to do during my conversations with Jesus. I could not figure it out, so I started praying for clarification on what the path was. I prayed, “Lord, show me what I can do to serve you and I will”  Boy, did he ever!  Within two hours,  I had emails from two leading people in Asheville, one owner of a Christian Based newspaper, the other the owner of a Christian radio station. I had never met nor would have ever met these men. I jumped in just as led by our Lord, Show me the path and I will walk it.
As the week followed, I had to create my simple radio show. I attended a four person networking event being led by a wonderful Christian. I heard “that” voice leading me to ask this stranger, if he would be a co-host on a totally raw radio show. He had been led to approach the same station owner about this same thing, wanting the same day and timeslot for the same purpose. When he had asked, it was already given to my show.  Jeff said yes and the rest is history.
I had been attending a Ladies Bible Study Series every Monday night. On the last night of the Bible Study, a dear Methodist Pastor, approached me and asked me to stand in front of the Bible study group and read a selection of verses. I was still not able to speak in front of people without asthmatic outbreaks and hot flashes from my nerves. But if I am asked to do for the Lord, I will take the step in my humble way to do it. But rest assured, I prayed right then and there. Father, please help me not make a fool out of my self or distract the ladies from your message by mispronouncing the words. (You know some words in the Bible are very difficult to pronounce.I am not going to share what happened that night, in this article but it is a story you need to hear:  I left that class knowing that we all have special talents that we have been given by Heavenly Father.  Often, we might not know our talents; but, He does! Our Savior will not ask us to attempt more than we are able.  If we do as we are commanded, He will carry us— He is very qualified!
Over a year later, I am so blessed to still be on the air encouraging believers and seekers to follow the “Light” in all areas of their life- personal, spiritual, and business. I have been leading Christian based networking events for almost a year that are sponsored by the Christian based newspaper. I still do the work of the Lord in my unqualified, untrained, from the heart manner and I am blessed to be strengthened and guided by those around me along the way.

I am not a trained Christian leader but God doesn’t ask for the qualified, he wants the humble child that will step out because of faith in him. Where is the Savior leading you? Do you feel led to do something that does not make sense to you? Aren’t we blessed by the knowledge that Heavenly Father knows all.   Have you taken that step with the Lord before? Do you feel led to share? Please share with me your experience and/testimony; so that, others may be touched and inspired by your journey. Please share so He can use your Spiritual Journey to benefit and edify others.

I always say, Our Father in Heaven has such a great sense of humor. He takes a simple mother, grandmother and Follower of Jesus, who has a successful home staging business. He sees her fear of speaking in front of 20 people; thank goodness Heavenly Father gave me a chance to learn and magnify my new found talents. So He opens doors and instructs me to anchor a religious radio show and lead networking groups and events. He leads me to walk away from my successful business. He leads us to go where we find true miracles: I am so blessed by the people and miraculous events that I have witnessed.
I am not a trained Christian leader but God doesn’t ask for the qualified, he wants the humble child that will step out because of faith in him. Where is the Savior leading you? Do you feel led to do something that does not make sense to you? Aren’t we blessed by the knowledge that Heavenly Father knows all.   Have you taken that step with the Lord before? Do you feel led to share? Please share with me your experience and/testimony; so that, others may be touched and inspired by your journey. Please share so He can use your Spiritual Journey to benefit and edify others.
Remember don’t wait to meet Jesus when you are sinless. He wants you Now! Just the way you are, sins~ thorns ~ and uncertainty!

May God Bless you and keep you, as you spread the Love of Jesus Christ!
