What began as a flickering thought while raising her young family has now become a reality for singer, Rebecca St. James. While raising her kids, who were then 6, 2, and another on the way, Rebecca’s thoughts turned to how she could encourage new moms. She flitted with the idea of “Mommy Minutes” which be comprised of soundbites to share her wisdom and stories with other mothers out there. This podcast would create a comforting atmosphere that they were not alone in their journey.
“It’s challenging sometimes. I felt like a lot of other moms are probably going through similar things and need some encouragement or to feel like they’re not alone in the journey,” Rebecca commented. “So, I thought, “Well, what about a mommy minute podcast where I could create a little soundbite for Christian radio like K-Love where I could just share a little bit about my story about being a mom, give scriptures, and be an encouragement to other moms out there?”
The thought quickly spiralled into a reality as the contemporary Christian music radio giant, Educational Media Foundation, launched AccessMore podcast platform. The focus of the platform was to stream a growing library of faith-based podcasts designed to inform and inspire listeners.
Rebecca’s “Mommy Minutes” quickly became, “Rebecca St. James Family and Friends” wherein she discusses faith, parenting, relationships and more.
