Dear Younger Me: From Entitlement to Gratitude

I’m so happy to be back for our second season of Grow on the Go! This episode marks the beginning of a new series inspired by the Mercy Me song “Dear Younger Me”. It got me thinking that if we could write a letter to the younger version of ourselves, what would we say?  What lessons and insights would we share?

Grow on the Go listeners will hear from women with a variety of life experiences with letters to share. This week, I’m chatting with my friend Shirley Theissen about how a traumatic loss in her forties taught her to live in surrender to God, rather than expecting God to reward her “good behavior” and obedience with blessings. As Shirley tells her younger self what she wishes she knew much earlier in her life, other younger women can lean in and learn from Shirley’s experience.

So stay tuned to Faith Strong Today for new episodes from this series every week or subscribe on your favorite podcast service. We’d also love to hear your thoughts in the comments below or by leaving a rating or review for Grow on the Go Podcast on Apple Podcasts. What have you learned that the younger version of you would find valuable?
