This is the story of the labels people pin to us - to
our bodies or our lives, or our families or our homes - and that we
sometimes start to believe must be true. This is the story
of starting to say that we will not be accepting those labels
today, thank you very much.
Today Christie and Lisa-Jo each share stories about labels they had
unknowingly accepted about themselves since they were teenagers. As
if they were a shameful secret. As if they should apologize for who
they are. Do you know what we mean? Do you have a memory, a
throwaway sentence, an insult, a note, a casual, cutting
observation that you tucked into your soul and allowed to grow up
alongside you as if it was always part of you? So that now that lie
is grafted into your DNA and you can’t tell the difference between
the label and the reality of you?
Today is the day to toss that label in the trash, friends!
Join us as we speak truth and laughter and reality to the labels
that have embarrassed us in the past. That we choose instead to
name our lives and our homes and ourselves with the words spoken on
the sixth day, “very good” (Genesis 1:31).
We LOVE hearing from
listeners. Tell us what YOUR THING is? Go ahead, be as bold as Zoe
and own your thing. We'd love to celebrate you today! Be sure and
