15: An Alternative to New Year's Resolutions


This is the story about promises buried like Spring.

We recorded this episode on the 3rd floor of Maplehurst surrounded by the wrapping paper dregs of Christmas. And neither of us was ready to rush into the New Year just yet.

For all of us who feel like we're back at a start line when we only just crossed the finish of the old year here is an alternative to setting New Year's resolutions.

Join Christie and Lisa-Jo as they spend some time remembering the ancient promises already waiting for us in the New Year. Let go the pressure to have to chart your own course perfectly. Here's permission to believe that spring will come just as surely as those bulbs are buried in the dirt and uncertainty right now.

Listener invitation: Come find us on Instagram using the #OutoftheOrdinaryPodcast hashtag and share your own favorite old promises that you're taking into this New Year.

    So glad to hear you two new friends again! When I found you in Nov, I binged and caught up on all your podcasts in a few weeks so I’ve missed you! ♥
    Several things resonated with me in the podcast for the first of the year. I’m trying not to be so hard on myself and consider it another day and take care of that day.

    And I have Psalm 81 noted and will study that further… that God will fill my mouth with good things.
    * looking at Christmas as “the Promise fulfilled”. A+
