22. An Easy Way to Reset Your Day


This is a collection of love stories about the old fashioned cuppa tea.

It's no secret that Lisa-Jo and Christie love a good cup of tea.  Hot, cold, dark, red, or herbal tea is a hot trend these days. But Lisa-Jo's love for the sweet beverage was born even before she was. And Christie was an early adapter

Between them they invite you to put your feet up, pour a cuppa and listen in as Lisa-Jo shares about her surprising tea discovery while working at the Pretoria News newspaper in South Africa, Christie takes us to Comanche, Texas and memories of iced tea, and between them they invite you into the sacred and completely ordinary rhythm of a day paused by a tray of tea and the people who gather to drink it.

Listener invitation: We LOVE hearing from listeners. Tell us YOUR favorite kind of tea! Be sure and tag Lisa-Jo @lisajobaker and Christie @christiepurifoy  and use the hashtag #outoftheordinarypodcast

    OK! I totally LOVE listening to both of you! I have been listening to your podcast – all of them from the beginning and I LOVE IT! I am a South African living in the UK with my family for 11 years now and I love hearing your stories. You are both so easy to listen to, its like ( as many of your followers have shared) like have 2 friends in the car with me at all time! I think I cry in almost every episode so ALL the reasons. You are real! You are kind ! and the way you always bring God back into life in the simplest of ways is so wonderfully encouraging! After whats been a tough season in our lives, I have found your podcast light and refreshing and gentle to the depths of my soul! I feel like I know you , like you are my friends, like you share ALL THE STUFF with open hearts and gentleness and kindness! Thank you for making it easy to WANT to listen to you both. I love the mix of you accents and your lives ! Thank you for being real!
