ABOUT CONSIDER THIS
The radio show Consider This with Annette Petrick Is broadcast several times a day. I’ve been writing and recording the shows for the last 15 years. It’s a minute and a half long story about life, love and making a difference.
Stories are popular with busy people like you, who stop by for fast entertainment and assurance of kindness, caring and smiles. It’s like getting a shot of inspiration or assurance as you pass by.
To deliver the stories beyond radio range, we gathered up more than 500 episodes and brought them over here to the Internet.
- Come and read or listen to a story any time you want.
- Let us deliver a show to you by email every Sunday morning.
- As you share stories with friends, we create even more smiles.
Stories are about lives where joy, wonder and happiness exist but are often overlooked. A true-life story may have an unexpected turn. There may be a lesson, counsel or opinion. It could be a reminder, a reminiscence or a rant. Curiosity shouts to me, “I want to know the story.” So I write it.
ABOUT ANNETTE PETRICK
The speaker behind the podium at the national convention – that was me. Did that for years. Interacting with audiences, I saw serious need for hope and optimism. I started inserting a touch of encouragement and inspiration to my stage. Before long, positivity became our most popular topic.
Now my energy goes into stories for people in the fast lane, who just need a shot of inspiration or assurance as they pass by. Our stories also reach out to the mature audience of my peers. We relate empathetically.
On a personal note, husband Bill and I live in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, with all its small town charm and shortcomings. We belong to the Chamber, lunch at the Moose Lodge, attend Music in the Park and work on Rotary committees. I even served as president one year.
My three grown children are scattered throughout New Jersey and Michigan with a bunch of grandkids and a great one too. Pandemic has kept us apart for nearly a year. You know how hard that is.
Should you, for some unknown reason, be curious about my past, and the four major loves of my life, here’s a link to a PDF book that goes up to about five years ago.
If you were here with me, I’d invite you to pull up a rocker and sit with me here on the front porch while we talk about love, family, giving and gratitude. I may have to ask you to wear your mask.
