    What birthday is Lisa-Jo nervous about? We all need a friend like Christie that takes our dreams and wishful thinking in stride and can make it happen.  Be creative in the stories you tell yourself. Let the wishful thinker dream! Then speak your dreams out loud.  Wishful thinking doesn't have to equal unrealistic thinking but it equals CREATIVE thinking.  Make it fit to what's reality in your life.   You can aim for something that seems to be good, worthwhile and the right thing. We can't know the unknown so just start with tangible steps to fulfill the best party you can throw for yourself or your person.  Lisa-Jo mentions "Day in the Life: Night Edition."  Got an dreaming wishful thinker in your life? Share this week's episode with them!

    This summer on the podcast we’re deep diving 7 different party personalities and Type 4: The Introvert is up today!
    Real conversations around a table are perfect for the introvert and good for all of us who need some intentional connection in our week.  The Bible says that "kind words are like honey" and a dinner party can feed the soul like honey with words of encouragement and depth. Put on your calendar specific connections with friends that are non-negotiable, even if it's around the table at a restaurant. There are no rules on how this has to go!  With a smaller party, the host can experience it the same way as the guest, which is different from hosting a big party. Got an awesome introvert in your life? Share this week's episode with them!

    Christie threw a party for her extrovert daughter’s graduation and it was a huge hit!  Learn how an outdoor projector, projector screen, twinkle lights and cheesecake makes the perfect party for lots of friends.  Extroverts help us see the world in a different way and they create parties with everyone in mind.  There's always a risk of vulnerability when gathering your people.  Christie assures you that if you're freaked out, you're not alone.  Party prayer that's similar to The Barn Blessing for Christie is, "Please don't let half the food be left in the oven."  Got an awesome extrovert in your life?

    183. Seven Party Personalities: #1-The Artist

    Key Conversation Points:
    Summer is a time to gather with your people.  It's time for parties! The seven party personalities for seven episodes are as follows: The Artist, The Extrovert, The Romantic, The Introvert, The Wishful Thinker, The Epicurean and the Connector!!  The summer podcast is something perfect like a beach read which is not heavy but lighter and delightful. How can pizza and crepes build your community?  Christie had the artist perfect party and has all the tips! For the artist, what is the story you want your party to tell? Artists see things that aren't there and imagine connections that aren't obvious.  Learn why Lisa-Jo says Christie's Garden Book Launch Party makes the Top 10 Parties of her life! Think of the experience you want someone to have and map it out accordingly.  We can experience our art alone but when we bring all creativity in one shared space then everyone is operating in the strength of their shared gifts.

    182. A Day In the Life: NIGHT EDITION

    182. A Day In the Life: NIGHT EDITION

    Key Conversation Points:
    Do you have a nighttime person that comes out to play and forgets all responsibility that awaits in the morning?  The ordinary unpicturesque views inside our four walls in the evening are the moments that bind us.  Be intentional with your people where you can and all the rest of life you do the best you can, because much of life we can't control anyway. Reflecting on the story of your days helps you find the meaning in it. As you decontruct your days, see beyond the ordinary and push past it to see the beauty.  A visual snapshot is powerful.  Keep being curious about your story. Time doesn't stand still and it's not always sad that it keeps going. Podcast links:

Party series

It’s so GOOD! I can’t wait for the next episode and will most likely binge through them once all done. Love…love…love the diving deep into these personalities.

Just what the Lord knew I needed

I found Christie and Lisa Jo right after a deeply painful breakup. Their stories have pointed my heart to hope in a time of very real grief. Now, I often listen while I tend to the cut flower garden in my small downtown backyard, planting the seeds as a reminder that beautiful things grow out of even the painful moments in our real, ordinary lives. Thank you!

Kent Sanders, Writer ,

Excellent podcast for any growth-minded person!

I love listening to shows dedicated to living your life on the highest level possible. Lisa-Jo and Christie do an incredible job breaking down issues and adding intelligent and meaningful dialogue. This is a well-produced show full of heart and soul!
