42. Why the End of Every Great Story is the Same


This is a story about two astonishing names.

One name belongs to Christie's family and the other belongs to Lisa-Jo's, but both names tell incredible stories.

This conversation was inspired by Lisa-Jo's most personal and vulnerable Instagram post ever. Her tear-streaked face moved many of you to respond, but this week not only are we sharing the story behind the image, we are marveling at how exactly Lisa-Jo's family story mirrors one of Christie's own.

This is a conversation about names, the stories they tell, and an author God who ends every great story in exactly the same way.

Because God's stories don't conclude with the familiar words the end. Instead, we believe they always lead us toward these two beautiful words:

New Life.

This week on the Out of the Ordinary podcast, we are telling stories of how old sorrows grew new life.

Listener invitation: Do you know a name that is also a story? We'd love to hear more!  Just share a photo on instagram and tag @lisajobaker and @christiepurifoy
