It's far too easy to take things too seriously. It makes sense- life is intense, especially the long season we just went through. Even when we approach our dreams and ambitions- things that are actually designed to bring us more life, more joy, and more adventure- it's easy to slip into a mode of intensity that saps all the goodness from us. So what does it look like to return to joy, even amid working through the tough challenges and setbacks, too? I'm so happy to have my good friend Lysa TerKeurst on our podcast this week. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the #1 New York Times’ bestselling author of Seeing Beautiful Again: 50 Devotions to Find Redemption in Every Part of Your Story and Forgiving What You Can’t Forget and It’s Not Supposed to Be This. She writes from her gray farm table and lives with her family in North Carolina. Connect with her at LysaTerKeurst.com or on social media @LysaTerKeurst.

For the third and final week of our Kingdom of God series, we hear from Amanda and Raechel’s guest Lysa TerKeurst—an author, speaker, and Bible teacher. Together, they untangle topics like pursuing holiness and how to think biblically about the inclusive and exclusive nature of the gospel. Lysa shares her personal journey with forgiveness and how the act of forgiving those who’ve hurt us is “one of the most beautiful evidences of being a citizen of the kingdom of heaven.” During this hour, we learn about the true meaning of the gospel: it is an invitation into a new way of being and a new God-given identity.

Lysa TerKeurst joins us today for a second time on Pardon the Mess, and she’s coming in hot (that’s a good thing, BTW)! I’m continually blown away by how the Lord is using the hard places Lysa has faced in her marriage and health to show his goodness and redemption so powerfully. Lysa and I talk about so much today, but here are a few of my favorite discussion points: - Forgiving what you can’t forget - What forgiveness is and what it is not - Reframing life’s struggles as a tension to manage, not a problem to solve - Reminders that bad moments don’t make bad mamas - The importance of “Seeing Beautiful Again” even when it’s complicated One more thing: I had a Pardon the Mess first during this interview where I may or may not have cried at one point. I know, right? But truth is powerful, and I’m so thankful that we have Lysa joining us on today’s show. Listen, share it with friends, and be encouraged!
