chew* episode 3

Whew! After more technical difficulties than I care to count, our third chew* episode is ready to go! This episode can be listened to in five parts. Don't worry; our entire conversation was still about an hour. You can just listen to the chat in shorter "chunks" of information this time.

The three of us (Lindsey's still enjoying London!) shared our thoughts on good storytelling (inspired by Donald Miller's A Million Miles in a Thousand Years) and how God is pushing us toward making great stories out of our lives. Some highlights:

- How we choose to handle the conflict in our lives plays a big part in what our story looks like and how it begins to unfold.

- Comfort can stop us from living bigger, better stories. By choosing to stretch ourselves, we give God the ability and opportunity to write incredible twists and turns into the plot of our lives.

- Our stories might not be about us. What's going on in my story might be for the benefit of someone else's story.

We'd love to hear your thoughts on what it means to make our lives stories worth reading. Feel free to weigh in through the comments section, or email Annie at anniesbutterworth [dot] gmail [dot] com.
