Restory Show

Last summer God birthed the concept of restory in me. I prayed a lot about what would be next, moving from "living uncaged" to learning about and encouraging others to embrace a brand new story. This resonated through me as I considered a podcast. I dreamed of having people on the podcast who shared jaw-dropping stories, who exemplified faithfulness, sacrifice, humbleness, along with a big heart for Jesus. I wanted to see turnaround stories, where God had intersected a life, and that life was no longer the same. So I prayed. And God answered. He brought people to me. He reminded me of others. Instead of fretting about what to say or who to invite, this podcasting process has become something entirely different. God has made it sweet and nearly effortless. I cannot wait to share with you all these amazing interviews. And today's? It'll change your life.

You're in for a great conversation between me and radio personality & novelist, Chris Fabry. We first met via the radio, as he's interviewed me a few times for my books. We've become far-away friends since. Chris is a man of integrity, but he is not without trials and stresses.

In this episode, Chris will share a difficult story about his home. I don't want to spoil it, but suffice to say, it's a story of sickness, financial hardship, letting go, the love of a husband and wife, and what it takes to follow after Jesus down twisting roads. I pray this episode will truly inspire you as much as it inspired me.

In the episode, Chris talked about his novel June Bug. Here it is, if you're interested. He wrote this book while he was in the midst of his family's own hellish trial, and the lessons learned by the character in the book somewhat mirror his own.

I'm so grateful for Chris' heart, his authenticity, and his ability to translate God's comfort for us.

Here's a profound example of someone who advocates for those who don't have his story. He did not experience sexual exploitation, yet as a prosecutor, he processed many cases against sex-offenders, and now has a huge ministry within the church to help it become a safe, healing place for victims of abuse.

How Our Stories Intersected

Boz and I met online through his work with GRACE. (Godly Response to Abuse in a Christian Environment). We met in person this February through a fund raising event for GRACE, then this spring I had the privilege of speaking to the law school where he works as a professor.

Through all this, we've become good friends. What I love about Boz is his brazen honesty and his desire to protect people from sexual predators. He is willing to put himself on the front lines for the sake of them. It's inspiring. It's humbling.

Boz's story encourages us that you don't have to have a tragic story to help those in tragedies. God uses all of us, no matter what our story is, to be rescuers in this dying world. That's profound. And I'm grateful for Boz's example.

As in all my episodes, I pray for you at the end. It's my sincere hope that you'll walk away from the Restory Show changed and challenged.

I love Cristin's honesty in this episode. From drug addict to missionary...the change profoundly coming through Jesus Christ. (She's also a novelist! Look for her first novel soon!)

How Our Stories Intersected

Cristin and I met in Geneva. She was the reason I had the opportunity to talk to writers on the other side of the world. The week had a profound impact on me. What a blessing!

Cristin is a lifetime missionary with YWAM. She and her family will be living in Belgium where her husband is from. They have a deep desire to love others and provide community.
