    Chrystal Evans Hurst | Letter to Younger Self | DD 125

    One of my favorite things over the last year on the Dear Daughters Podcast was listening to my guests read a letter to their younger selves.
    In celebration of my new book, The Grace Guide: Live Your One Beautiful Life, I am featuring four of my favorite letters in BONUS episodes. In this final episode, I am featuring Chrystal Evans Hurst.
    In DD Episode 96, Chrystal offers so much truth about how to end the cycle of unhealthy thoughts and bring our thoughts into the light of God’s truth. Listen to Chrystal as she speaks tender words of wisdom to her younger self and encourages her to show up for her life starting now.
    So a question for you: What would you like to say to your younger self?
    That God loves you. To love the woman you are becoming. To not be so hard on yourself and others. My new book, The Grace Guide: Live Your One Beautiful Life, is a book designed to help to experience the grace upon grace God has for you by reflecting on your life and your memories. I hope you’ll pick up a copy.

    Grace When Suffering Lingers | K.J. Ramsey | DD 124

    Grace When Suffering Lingers | K.J. Ramsey | DD 124

    We are made to hold the presence of God … the God who holds all things together holds us.
    K.J. has been reckoning with an autoimmune disease, ankylosing spondylitis (AS), for 11 years. It’s been an “unpredictable companion” in her life that not only propelled her into her counseling career but also propelled her to experience and hold the presence of God.
    K.J. Ramsey (BA, Covenant College, MA, Denver Seminary) is a licensed professional counselor, writer, and recovering idealist who believes sorrow and joy coexist. Her writing on the integration of theology, psychology, and spiritual formation can be found in publications including Christianity Today, RELEVANT, and The Huffington Post. She and her husband live in Denver, Colorado. K.J.’s first book, This Too Shall Last: Finding Grace When Suffering Lingers, invites us to the wonder that before God ever rescues us, he stands in solidarity with us. It’s the book that she wished she could’ve had as a 20-year-old who’s suffering never went away.
    K.J. says these four things about herself:
    “I ended up at Denver Seminary where I got my Masters in Counseling…after seeing my own counselor and realizing A, we all need space to process the suffering in our lives but B, that it could be a career that was a lot more flexible for what my body needs. And then I also needed a better climate and the more dry climate of Colorado is a lot better for my body.” “One time we saw someone with a German Shorthaired Pointer at a restaurant sitting outside, and it was the most beautiful dog we had ever seen and it was so sweet. We caught the bug and about 5 weeks later, we got one. His name, Merton, is after Thomas Merton, who is one of my favorite authors.” “I was a figure skater growing up.” “I am a total nerd.” Listen in to my timely conversation with K.J. In seasons like we’re all in right now sheltering-in-place, we have the invitation to pay special attention to the hurt in our lives in a way that we can’t when we’re so hurried. We all have pain that persists … K.J. reminds us that our present pain is always experienced in the presence of God and the more we learn how to be present to our pain and to our hard circumstances, the more we get to experience unity with Jesus and the grace God gives us. I think she will comfort you with her heart and wisdom.

    In celebration of my new book, The Grace Guide: Live Your One Beautiful Life, I am featuring five of my favorite letters in BONUS episodes, and this time I am featuring Rebekah Lyons.

    So a question for you: What would you like to say to your younger self?

    Fear Is Not The Boss Of You | Jennifer Allwood | DD 122

    Fear Is Not The Boss Of You | Jennifer Allwood | DD 122

    YOU can do big, hard, and scary things.
    Jennifer has found freedom in her business, her time, her finances, and most importantly, her faith, through years of releasing more and more over to God. What started as a desire to help pull her family out of financial desperation became a calling to help other women find the courage to do the same.
    Jennifer Allwood is a business owner, business mentor and coach, speaker, author and podcast host for The Jennifer Allwood Show. Jennifer uses her self-started business to inspire women to believe that they are enough, motivate them, and give them permission to lean into their calling. Her new book, Fear Is Not the Boss of You, is all about getting unstuck, move past overwhelm, and taking action in spite of fear. Jennifer lives in Kansas City with her husband and three kiddos, and she stands firm in the idea of using her business as a way to serve God and her family.
    Jennifer says these four things about herself:
    “My kryptonite is raw chocolate chip cookie dough, that is always always always my food of choice.” “I’m not a TV watcher, but I love movies and Netflix.” “Massage is my love language.” “I used to twirl batons in high school…I used to twirl two at a time and I used to twirl fire batons. My mom was a baton twirler as well. “ Jennifer is a firecracker! She talks about her new book and her passion for coaching women in business, how giving her life to God changed everything, and how “being stuck stinks.” Listen in … I think she’ll give you some confidence to take that next step you know you need to take as so many things around us are changing.

Truth in confusing times...

Wow. Episode #124 with K.J.Ramsey is my new favorite, & timely for us all right here, right now. Here’s a quote that spoke deeply to me - ”...God is very comfortable with our honest cries...that’s where hope starts, so welcome...”
I’ve been listening to Susie’s podcasts for... hmmm...close to 3 years now, & she & her guests never fail to encourage me, challenge me, & speak truth into my life on multiple levels.
Thank you, Susie!
