What’s in your cup this morning: fear or faith? Or Diet Coke?
Powerhouse actress-singer-soap star Brenda Epperson-Moore, who played Ashely Abbot for over a decade on CBS daytime soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” has started a brand new extra-caffeinated podcast, “Morning Cup of Faith,” a weekly grind up of coffee, inspiration, all things pop culture and faith that drops every Tuesday at 9am.
“My co-host, HuffPost Guest Writer, Shelley Anderson Myers and I felt a calling on our heart to put out a message of faith and hope to combat all of the fear and negativity during lockdown,” Brenda shared. “The response has been tremendous. So many people want to have conversations about faith and connection as many people are so isolated and discouraged. We see this challenging period as a time of great awakening during this uncertain time in our lives.”
Brenda states, “Morning Cup of Faith” is a podcast for everyone, no matter where you are in your faith walk: coffee, books, art, music, recipes, gardening. We talk about it all with our friends.” You might even find the charismatic actress-singer who used to open up for Lionel Richie rocking out in her kitchen with an air guitar. “Shelley and I like to have fun! That’s our jam.”
The two fun-loving longtime friends mix it up with humor and wit, and they share everything, even chickens. Brenda laughs, “Yes, Shelley dropped off one of her baby chickens at my house because it turned out to be a rooster; thank you, Shelley!” “You’re welcome,” Shelley laughs.
“We joke that our kids aren’t talking to us anymore because we’ve asked them too many tech questions to create this podcast,” Shelley laughs. Brenda, “I think Shelley told her son she’d pay him $100 for his tech help, she was so desperate.” Shelley punches Brenda in the arm.
Brenda says, “Our slogan is ‘Let “MORNING CUP OF FAITH pour you a faith latte, with a double shot of the divine.’
Some of the thought-provoking interviews with leaders, influencers and artists include faith-filled TV Host Kym Douglas (“The Ellen Show,” Hallmark Channel) who shares inspiring stories of courage and hope and why “thrive” is her favorite word, courageous film producer and influencer Lani Netter talks about her powerful experiences on the set of “Just Mercy” starring Jamie Foxx, the movie that sparked a national conversation, and actress-producer Rachel Boston, a warrior of hope and change talks about “having those deeper conversations right now” and why she’s glad to see an end of the negative “discard culture.”
Future “Morning Cup of Faith” guests include popular soap opera favorite Jerry Douglas who reigned as patriarch John Abbott on the daytime soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” and actress-producer-NYT best-selling author Victoria Rowell (“The Rich and the Ruthless” on UMC).
Brenda reflected, “It’s a time to be bold, to speak up about your faith. People are reaching their tipping point; they’re afraid to even go to the grocery store or send their child to school. We want to have conversations on this podcast to lift people up, inspire them, get them to laugh.”
Shelley added: “I’m constantly surprised by the new people that approach me around town to tell me how much they’re enjoying “Morning Cup of Faith, “ people who I didn’t even know were believers. God is on the move, and we’re just hanging on for the ride.”
