59. A New Year's "Yes!" (Part 2 of 2)

Out of the Ordinary 59

This is the story of what Christie found at the back of a very messy closet.

This is a story about the shadow side of every "Yes."

In our lives, and in this new year, are we the gardeners sowing seed, or are we the soil in which our Maker plants seed? If we ARE the soil, how do we prepare ourselves to receive and nurture the RIGHT seeds?

These are the questions Lisa-Jo and Christie explore as they trade stories in the second half of a two-part New Year's conversation.

Book mentioned in this episode: The Christmas Chronicles by Nigel Slater
