As Shared on KCR Podcast Platform:

Many people have been struggling during this past year, with the COVID crisis and the resulting social isolation and shut downs that have been taking place. Many churches have had to cut back or even cancel their services. For many people, church has always been that one place they could go to seek some semblance of peace. The Peace of God. But that has not been an option for many people during this past year.

That takes some special people with a special anointing to try and take that message to the masses in any way they can. The message that “God Loves You” is one that needs to be shared far and wide, especially in the world we see falling apart around us today. My guest today has several irons in the fire that allows her to do just that thing. To bring HOPE and God’s Love to those that need to hear about it and experience it right now.

April Metzler is a Christian author and song writer that draws daily with her walk with God to minister hope and encouragement to others with a heart for intercessory prayer. She will be the first to tell you that you are “Loved by God,” when the rest of the world tries to tell you otherwise. She is author of the book, “Oh My God, My Heart: It is the Pursuit That Matters” which was released in July of 2020. She also released a music album titled “Oh My Heart Strings” as well. And, on top of all that, she is a podcast host for “RSVP Show.” Praise God!  Help me welcome to the program, April Metzler!


  • First question that I always ask is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, tell us in your own words, “Who is April Metzler?”
  • You released your first book, “Oh My God, My Heart: It is the Pursuit That Matters,” back in the summer of 2020. It contains over 350 different scripture verses and quotes. This book is loosely based upon your own life experiences, correct?
  • Give us a couple of examples what the readers will find in your book…
  • I especially liked the story about when your in-laws, shall we say, cleaned up your house while you were sleeping and tossed out some very important papers you were working on? Can you just go over that story as an example of the content in your book?
  • You focus on sharing “God’s Love” with others. I can appreciate that, especially in this day and time we are living right now. How has this work helped you to grow during the pandemic and all that has taken place since early 2020?

Part 2

  • Were you already preparing to release your book and your music album before the COVID situation came upon the world? Or was all of this as a result of the crisis?
  • You are active in youth and music ministry in your church. I know the COVID restrictions put a damper on being invited to sing, etc. as a guest at other churches. But now that it looks like things may get loosened up a bit, are you reaching out to come and minister by song in other places?
  • When did you first discover your love for song writing?
  • Do you remember the first song you actually wrote?
  • Who is your intended listener?
  • What label are you releasing under?
  • I’ve listened to your songs, they are really good!  And you have them on YouTube as well, that’s awesome!
  • Does your husband play any instruments?
  • I know you have a podcast, called “RSVP Show.”  Tell us about your podcast…
  • April, you are one busy woman! Praise God! I could talk to you for hours.  I love all that you are doing for the Lord and for His People. Amen!
  • Your book, “Oh My God, My Heart: It is the Pursuit That Matters,” is it available on Amazon? Is that how our listeners should get a copy of your book?
  • And what about your music album, “Oh My Heart Strings.” That is also available on Amazon, correct?
  • If someone wanted to reach out to you and ask a question, to get in touch or maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you?
  • And I don’t want to forget your podcast! Praise God!  What is the link to your podcast so we can listen to the great conversations you have there?

Folks, you absolutely need to get a copy of April Metzler’s new book, “Oh My God, My Heart: It is the Pursuit That Matters.” This book, I can’t say it any plainer…this book will give you the encouragement to face these uncertain times in a way that God intends for you to walk all situations in your life. By trusting IN HIM and in His Love and by being the victor and not the victim. Amen!  Go down into the show notes, click the link and order your copy today. In fact, order two or three copies. Amen! Sow this into someone’s life. I know that you know at least one other person that can use this type of encouragement. Amen! So click the link and order your copies today.

And, let’s not forget about ordering April’s music album. Praise God!

You know, even when all hell was breaking loose around David, it was always the music and worship he did before God that brought him the peace and confidence to face whatever was going on around him. It works the same way with you. Use the link below to order April’s music album and let this music just minister the Peace of God to you through music as well. It’s not that expensive of an investment, but it will reap bountiful rewards. Amen!

Do you ever wonder what it will be like in heaven when we join with all of the angels and saints and all of creation to sing praises to God?

We WILL experience that someday! We have that blessed assurance!

In this week’s episode, we are looking at the beautiful hymn Holy, Holy, Holy written by Reginald Heber and John Bacchus Dykes. The words of the hymn come right from the Bible, where we can read about this vision of heaven when all the heavenly beings are praising God.

Join us this week as we dive deep into this amazing hymn. Our guest and singer this week is songwriter, author, podcaster, April Metzler.

The Bible Speaks To You with host James Early – Invitation to share my thoughts on an awesome question along with other brothers & sisters in Christ!

This was such a neat invite to receive to come alongside and honor another brother-in-Christ for reaching 100 episodes on his podcast show, The Bible Speaks To You! I encourage you to check this episode out and connect with the folks on this visit! So awesome and such a blessing to have the opportunity to share my heart on this question alongside so many others in the body of Christ!

As Shared on His Platform:

The Question: If you could talk to your favorite Bible character, other than Jesus, who would it be and what would you ask them?

In celebration of Episode 100 of The Bible Speaks to You Podcast, I have asked my listeners to think about who their favorite Bible character is and what they would ask them. The answers have been recorded, so you’ll hear them, in their own voices, tell you who they’d like to talk to and what they would ask.

You’ll be inspired by the thoughtful questions that are posed.

This is not just an exercise of curiosity or the human intellect. If it were, it would just be a chase down the rabbit hole of opinions and speculation.

The purpose of this inquiry is for us to learn from the ideas shared here so we can walk in closer relationship with God.
