Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Gwen Smith on Sunday 12-23-12
[UPDATE: Podcast posted 1-7-13]
I had the pleasure of meeting Gwen Smith at a writer’s conference this year, but I knew her work well before that time. She is co-founder of Crosswalk.com’s Girlfriends in God and her devotionals have landed in my inbox with great regularity as many of my girlfriends in God send me one or another of Gwen’s meditations. When we met in person, Gwen was leading worship at the writer’s conference and what struck me most was her authentic personality. She’s bright and talented and all-round lovely, but she’s also a real person who has experienced real problems–including an abortion in her past. You’ll hear Gwen’s inspiring story and songs this week on Cradle My Heart Radio–and you’ll be inspired with new hope.
From her bio:

Gwen has shared her stories and songs on many television programs, including: LIFE Today, The 700 Club, The Good Life, The Harvest Show, Homekeepers, Atlanta Live, and many radio programs as well. She is the author of a book titled Broken Into Beautiful – which shares the same title as a heart-stirring song that she co-wrote and recorded.
