What's the Best Advice You've Ever Received?
With Whitney Reynolds
Introduce yourself! Who are you?
I am Whitney Reynolds, host, owner and EP of The Whitney Reynolds Show! I am obsessed with my twins, Marlowe and Acher and married my best friend Dave.
What is one thing no one really knows about you?
I love to sing and play the piano (even if I’m not good LOL). Something magical happens when I sing hymns!
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Things don’t need to be done the traditional way. Swimming upstream is never easy but you’re still getting somewhere.
What would you say to 16 year old you?
CALM DOWN! You will get there kid.
What’s your dream job?
Exactly what I am doing!
Have you ever had anyone doubt you? How did that make you feel?
Oh man, growing up in a small Oklahoma town and announcing I was going to be a talk show host was a joke in itself. Throughout my 31 years I’ve been told no and to dream on soooo many times. I turned the no’s into my own yes’ and actually did dream on!
What message do you think every woman should hear?
Break the mold, your beauty comes from within and don’t forget to shine daily!
What is your favorite thing about where you live?
I love being in the heart of the city! We bought a house that was built in 1950 and have had a blast updating it. Who would have thought this country gal would be doing the city thing. Makes me chuckle!
What do you love most about yourself?
Being a mom! My twin pregnancy taught me so much. It was truly amazing to see how the woman body transforms for pregnancy. The struggle got extremely real when I went over 202 lbs and couldn’t see my feet past month 4. I ached all over but knew the reward was coming! To see those beautiful faces and to know they were part me and I grew them, WOW the most amazing feeling ever! Being their mom, makes life make sense!
What motivates you most?
Kindness and Grace! If it weren’t for these two words, I would not be where I am.
What do you consider to be your greatest achievement?
Becoming Emmy Nominated for a show that’s following a mission to impact lives through our program, is an honor! I’m super motivated to make my mark with my time here on earth!
What do you do on a daily basis to grow and move forward?
I reflect on where I’ve been and dream about where I am headed!
What is one thing people would be surprised to hear about you?
I’m short! Like super short, just over 5 feet tall. Pictures and TV makes me look much taller. For the record I feel tall ha!
What is something on your bucket list?
To host SNL!
What are your biggest passions?
I love the Lord, my family and truly blessed to be following my mission with The Whitney Reynolds Show!
