You might be surprised to know the depths of Liz Curtis Higgs’ story. This woman who has written more than 30 books, and is a popular conference speaker, had some difficult early adult years. Her attempts to find comfort and relief through self-destructive behaviors were interrupted when someone told her the truth of God’s love. This truly was good news. It was life transforming, so much so, those around her took notice. She’s been talking about Jesus and studying the characters of the Bible ever since.
In this episode of The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast we focus in on Liz’s story, the Easter story, and how God used women specifically in Scripture and continues to use them around the world today. A conversation that reminds us that there is nothing, simply nothing, that disqualifies us from receiving God’s love. From the story of the prodigal son, to Mary of Bethany, to the cross with Jesus’ mother Mary, and finally Mary Magdalene, Liz reminds us over and over that God meets us where we are, is concerned for us in every circumstance and releases us to tell others about his forgiveness.
As we approach Easter we relish this conversation with Liz. She helps us see the human side of these characters as they encounter the holy in the middle of their pain. We hope you listen in and remember the Easter story is for you.
