NewLSFB612: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Epilogue

This episode is sort of the period at the end of a sentence. The director’s cry of “Cut!” at the end of a scene.
I’ve never, in more than 12 years of podcasting done an episode like this. It’s sort of bittersweet, to tell you the truth.
The first time reading through the Bible with the Lifespring Family Bible began, I think, in January of 2007. I read through the Bible in a year, so there were approximately 365 episodes there. After that year, I published reruns for at least two years if I remember right. The New Lifespring Family Audio Bible began in March of 2013 with all new readings and commentary, and there were 611 episodes of the New Lifespring Family Audio Bible, for a total of 976 episodes in which we read the Bible together.

This really helped with some of the expenses associated with producing the podcast, but more than anything, it was an encouragement to me that this show meant enough to My Friendly Editor to make the commitment. And there have been others along the way who have helped with one-time donations, and those gifts have been very much appreciated, too.

Producing 976 episodes of Bible reading and commentary represents thousands upon thousands of hours of work in the studio. I’m not gonna lie, there were times when I wondered if it was worth it. It was at those times that the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit told me to “Keep going. People are listening to My Word. What you are doing does matter.” So thank you for your prayers.
I want to thank my wife, the love of my life, the Lovely Lady LeeAnn, who has never wavered in her support. Many of those thousands of hours in the studio were hours that could have been spent with her, but she graciously and generously, without once complaining, relinquished our time together so that the podcast could go out on time. Honestly, without LeeAnn’s help and su
