062 || Surviving the Wilderness Years || Sharon Hodde Miller

Ep. 62 Sharon H. Miller.png

Sharon blogs at SheWorships.com. She loves writing about Jesus for the women in his church. In addition to writing, she’s a speaker, pastor’s wife and mom of two boys (and another baby on the way) and she hails from North Carolina. She recently completed her PhD at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. You’ve likely read her writing if you spend much time at Christianity Today’s blog for women–Her.meneutics. Her writing has also been featured in Christianity Today’s print magazine, Relevant, (in)couragePropelGifted for Leadership, LifeWay’s Collegiate magazine, and The Gospel Project blog. Sharon’s first book, Free of Me: Why Life Is Better When It’s Not About You, just launched this week and she’s back on the show to share more about the book and what she learned along the way.

IF YOU’VE EVER FELT LIKE YOUR WILDERNESS YEARS WOULD NEVER END, THIS IS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.

In this episode, Sharon talks about the hole she’s identified in a lot of teaching directed at Christian women and the book she wrote about it. She puts a label on that feeling you get as you scroll through social media and realize everyone got invited to the party but you. Sharon shares her favorite discipline to help break the habit of self-preoccupation and how she took a risk to identify and secure a mentor who could walk with her through the book-writing process.
