Episode 169: Self-Awareness in Different Seasons of Life and Ministry
A Conversation with Rae Lynn Schlief
March 16, 2021
What is your first memory of becoming self-aware? How about your most recent memory?
The reality is, we are never finished growing in self-awareness.
In our conversation this week with Rae Lynn Schlief, we talk about self-awareness through different seasons of life and ministry. From the first moment of radical self-awareness in the midst of clinical pastoral education to approaching retirement, Rae Lynn shares stories that will inspire and challenge your life and leadership.
We talk about what self-awareness is, how it serves you in leadership, and how to continue cultivating self-awareness through the different seasons of life. Through it all, grace abounds.
Rael Lynn invites you on a journey through stories. Lean in as she reflects with us about internal dialogue as well as external perceptions can deepen our self-awareness. Pause during moments in the conversation when we discuss vulnerability, triggers, and candor in prayer.
This episode is an invitation to look in the mirror and pause for a conversation with God about who you are and who God is inviting you to be. Then, if you’re ready to take the next step, invite a trusted friend along for the journey.
Whatever season of life and ministry you’re navigating, may this episode invite you to pause, reflect, and wrap yourself in grace.
