    Gwen Plano Congratulations on becoming the Host for Behind The Pen! Its not an easy job but somebody’s got to do it; besides being rewarding, you are getting some experience under your belt as a producer. Good luck to you and congratulations on becoming an official member of the RRBC Board as well.

  21. It is Tuesday, January 12, 1:15 am, and while I sit at my desk still working, I am just having the opportunity to listen to this awesome interview between Host, Gwen Plano and fellow member, Jenny Hinsman! These two ladies were simply wonderful together! Gwen always has such a calming effect on me, as I’m sure she does for anyone who has the pleasure of listening to her voice, and Jenny…so bubbly, excited and full of life, amazed me at the warmth she exudes in her every word! I could have listened to both of them for a whole lot longer than the 30 minutes we were allotted.

    Aside from enjoying their interview, I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the wonderfully sweet and kind words they both shared in my honor. Saying thank you seems like such a small thing for your kindness…your graciousness, and your words which make me feel so humbled to be apart of a world in which you two live. THANK YOU, again.

    I adored you both long before this interview, so can you imagine how today, the cause of that adoration has been cemented in my heart forever? Truly an incredible feeling and I am thankful every day that I breathe, for that medium called the world wide web, which connects me to gifts like you!

    GREAT JOB to the both of you! I am truly a FAN!!!!

  27. Bethany: Wow! I really enjoyed your interview of Rebecca Reilly. She is a funny lady who had the courage to bring out into the open what we all wonder about but sometimes just don’t know how to approach. Yes. Sexuality is a gift from God, and we all can use a little coaching from time to time on developing that gift. Bravo!

  29. I’m enjoying all the radio blog shows even if I have to listen at a later time since most come on when I am still asleep. Yep, I’m a night owl who does not like to get up much before noon. I loved being on the show for a little bit myself and it’s so niceto have voices to match to the faces I’m becoming familiar with.
