3-17 – Chris Morris

Jun 5, 2017Restory Show

Chris Morris is a CPA and a writer, as well as a father and husband who lives in Arizona. He’s written a book for writers and creatives about how to deal with the finances of an artistic career.

How Our Stories Intersected

Chris and I met at Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference this Spring. We immediately became friends as he shared a bit about his family (they have a special needs child). So I expected him to share that story when I interviewed him. But I was surprised to hear another story I didn’t yet know about him. He’s had to come to grips with chronic illness, and the acceptance of that has not been easy.

In this episode, Chris shares the nuances of what it’s like to be diagnosed with something chronic, and the walking out of that diagnosis that has very real implications for his day to day life. His story is honest and fresh, and has zero Christian cliches in it.

[“If you’re living with a chronic illness, today’s Restory Show with @ChrismorrisCPA will bless you. He goes FIRST.”]

As in all my episodes, I pray for you at the end. It’s my sincere hope that you’ll walk away from the Restory Show changed and challenged.

    Thanks for this podcast today with Chris, Mary. I always learn a lot from the people you interview. It’s so important that we see and hear stories from many other people, and how they interact with God, and what they have learned from God through their lives. And then as they share here on your podcast we can all take from them and see how we can grow in knowing God as well!
    God bless Chris and his family.
    And God bless you Mary!

    Chris shares a story of focus… how to handle distractions that rock our world. He shares how he’s opened his heart to a loving Christ that helped him see the blessings that his chronic illness brought into his life.

      Thanks for the kind words. Truth is, my world was rocked and I barely got through some days. I am learning to find Christ in the midst of brokenness. There are times where that’s easier than others, of course. I’m grateful for friends, a wife, and a church that holds me up on those terrible days.

        Community truly blesses us, even in our darkest moments.
