In this episode of The Open Door Sisterhood Podcast, Elisa Morgan does what she does so well, she draws us in with her combination of storytelling, humor and insight. A communicator on the stage, page and radio waves to audiences around the world Elisa is an author of 25 books, speaker, radio host, mom, wife, grandmother and President Emerita of MOPS International. She has a lifetime of leadership experience. It has not all been easy (perhaps the biggest understatement of they year!), but she has done her best to be obedient in each call and season.
Our conversation with Elisa covers parenting the teenager who is in rebellion mode, what it means to be called and “uncalled” in ministry, and how she lives these days as interruptible as possible. From marriage after the kids leave home to reminding our teenagers about who they uniquely are, Elisa offers wisdom for women wanting to love those around them well. She is bold and fun and vulnerable in this hour of conversation.
In true Elisa fashion we are laughing as we are learning through her storytelling and insights throughout our conversation. You won’t want to miss this part tender, part truth-filled episode of the podcast. A perfect addition to your hour long commute or chores at home. Push play and join the sisterhood!

Some things you heard mentioned on this episode:
Elisa’s book The Beauty of Broken: My Story and Likely Yours Too
Elisa’s grandmother’s peppermint ice cream pie recipe.
To make pie shell:
Melt 1/4 – 1/2 stick Oleo (melt with 1 small package chocolate tollhouse semisweet chips)
Add: 1 Tbsp. sugar and 4c special K, mix 1c at a time
Press mixture into greased pie plate and freeze for a bit to harden while ice cream is melting
Fill now hardened pie shell with softened 1/2 gallon peppermint ice cream. Once ice cream is spread and smooth, cover with saran wrap and foil and put in deep freeze.
(Hint: It’s a doozy to cut, so take it out of the freezer for 10 minutes before trying.)
