Pardon the Mess Podcast (Ep. 2.25) Lisa-Jo Baker: The Middle Matters

Ever felt like you’re stuck in a rut of boring, ordinary, or just routine days?

Lisa-Jo Baker is our guest today on Pardon the Mess, and she’s got a word for you!

Many of us are smack-dab in the center of (brace yourself) midlife and need some encouragement that the daily, not-so-picture-perfect moments in this middle portion of life really do all add up to the truly extraordinary life the Lord has blessed us with.

Lisa-Jo reminds us that we can be free from living up to everyone’s expectations for what a meaningful life should look like and embrace the life we are living right here and right now. She brings us practical truth for our marriages, parenting, body image issues, failures, and all the other places as we face these middle days.

Lisa-Jo is practical, funny, realistic, warm, and loves Jesus. I’m not sure what else we could possibly ask for! You’re going to get a good laugh and possibly a little bit of free therapy hearing her talk about her muffin-top picture after a school play and crying in her minivan when her son made the honor roll.
For those of us spending our days in the “middle,” this one is for you!
