42. Shauna Niequist: The Gift of Being a Beginner, Again Hope Still Wins with Ben Higgins

    • Society & Culture

"I think there are a lot of us who have to make peace with the idea of several different possibilities and tracks throughout our lives. And it’s not necessarily a failure, it might actually be a gift." 

Bestselling author Shuana Niequist and Ben walk us through what it looks like to navigate endings we didn’t choose (relationships, jobs, church affiliations etc.) and make peace with expectations for how we thought our lives would look. They open up about seasons where they’ve found themselves being a “beginner” again and how surprisingly, hope can be found in the pivot if we choose to let go, lean into the questions (vs depending on answers) and allow the change to guide us in a new, undiscovered direction.
