Lisa Gungor — Opening Your Eyes to Wonder


Stitcher   |   Overcast   |  Spotify

Lisa Gungor’s faith was the lens through which she viewed her marriage, music, and dreams—all of which the world witnessed through her and her husband’s Grammy nominated band, Gungor. Yet, when the lens was shattered through events like the unraveling of a career, the loss of a worldview, and the birth of a baby girl with heart defects, it led Lisa to a tumultuous place — until it gave way to a new perspective.

In this conversation, Branden and Lisa talk about her process of writing her latest book, The Most Beautiful Thing I’ve Seen. She also unravels what it means to hit rock bottom, understand what suffering is, feel what love can do, and continue to open our eyes to wonder in the heartbreak.

If I truly believe this body and world are something to escape, I will only suffer. But if I believe I am looking at the face of God, I will stare in awe every time. It’s all in how you see it.
— Lisa Gungor
