Ep 79 - Lysa TerKeurst: Good Boundaries, Goodbyes and the Protection of Rejection
To be human is to struggle with relationships from time to time. Whether you're in the thick of a brutal season of hurt, feeling paralyzed and stuck, or realizing you're a lifelong people pleaser who is now running on empty - go ahead and turn this one up because a wellspring of raw and refreshing perspective and wisdom is about to come your way.  

Paula's dear friend and New York Times Best-Selling author and speaker, Lysa TerKeurst, is joining "Faith & Calling" for a deep dive on her latest book, "Good Boundaries and Goodbyes" (in stores November 8). Aside from being a celebrated writer, Lysa is a mother and grandma, but she's also been through it - including the painful loss of her marriage of nearly 30 years. She opens up about the tough road she's walked over the last eight years. Hear why it's made her so passionate about helping others learn what boundaries are (Hint: they're not just pushing people away), why they're essential to keeping our relationships healthy and what happens when they turn into goodbyes. Lysa also tells Paula about her early days of writing and shares how her calling was birthed through rejection, closed doors and patience. 25+ books later and now a mother to grown kids, hear how Lysa is doing today, why she learned to let silence become her friend and her encouragement for anyone looking to fill in the gaps of the loneliness of life.

Great morning listen! Start my day listening to this positive podcast ! Great way to start your day!

Such a wonderful podcast! So nice to listen to pleasant respectful conversations.

Talk less & listen more Paula!

I love Paula- LOVE her! However, I'm consistently disappointed when she talks about herself, her business, her past, her family... most of a show. For instance, I was really excited about the Dan Harris episode, but Paula talked the entire time. I know what she has going on. I'm more interested, during this episode, to hear what DAN has going on. It's a trend I'm seeing for most of her interviews. Please let your guests do 95% of the talking, Paula.
