253. Confronting Shadows: A Comedy of Errors and Healing

out of the ordinary 253

Powered by RedCircle

Lisa-Jo has a personal epiphany in the bathtub this week and Christie offers insights on the healing that comes from addressing our shadows.

  • We're facing our demons this week -- from the safety of the bathtub!
  • Lisa-Jo looks in the mirror of her past and doesn't like what she sees
  • Christie points us to the cyclical nature of life that can bring order and understanding out of the darkness--especially as it relates to parenting teens.
  • Lisa-Jo tells the story of confronting one of the worst shadows from her past on a stage in front of 4,000 people.
  • We want to uncover the transformative power of confronting our past and finding meaning in the pain.
  • Christie recommends: Like Dew Your Youth: Growing Up with Your Teenager by Eugene H. Peterson
  • Lisa-Jo's bathtub read: A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
