Dear Younger Me

Dear Younger Me

Dear younger me, Cherie always said, 'Patience is a virtue,' but how much is enough? It is not fair that I have to be the better person. It's not fair that I have to be the mature one or the one who can't move freely.

It is easy to delete texts, numbers, and posts on social media, but how do you delete the love for your soul mate out of your life? Professor Riley did not have an answer for her eager students, but she did have love, experience, and the wisdom of her three best friends to offer. In her mind, she was like the modern-day Job from the Christian Bible. What would happen if God took away everything that you know and love to see if you would shake, bend, and break? Before she was a professor, she was a female who wanted to love one man and be loved by him forever. Love doesnt work that way, though.

Family business enterprises, found in virtually every country, are the backbone of most economies. However, the leadership challenges they present are complex and unique. Most executives and family members in these firms eventually discover that their education and years of hard work have not prepared them to address many of the interpersonal demands that come with the territory. After years of study and reflection, David Bentall came to realize how ill equipped he had been to be a part of the solution for his own family business. In his newest title, Dear Younger Me, he presents a highly personal exploration of nine key character traits that David realizes he was badly lacking as a young executive. Each of these traits are critically important for developing any leader, and for cultivating emotional intelligence and family relationships. Written in a handbook format, and useful for any business executive, it is especially aspiring for family enterprise executives, providing insight and inspiration on how to develop HUMILITY, CURIOSITY, LISTENING, EMPATHY, FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE, CRITICAL THINKING, PATIENCE and CONTENTMENT. He artfully balances academic research with practical insights from many well-known family enterprise leaders exploring the role of these key virtues as found in the lives of such iconic leaders as Benjamin Franklin, Albert Einstein, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, Kim Phuc, Walt Disney, John Wooden, and Helen Keller.

In Dear Younger Me David explores the nine most important character traits that he wished he had been wise enough to develop when he was a young executive. These traits present practical guidance and advice for cultivating emotional intelligence and personal character, and transforming leadership through HUMILITY, CURIOSITY, LISTENING, EMPATHY, FORGIVENESS, GRATITUDE, CRITICAL THINKING, PATIENCE and CONTENTMENT. David believes that each trait is necessary for successors to develop the skills and relationships required to successfully lead any family enterprise.

The bluebonnet flower grows in very poor soil. One would never guess this truth but the bright, proud bonnets tell no lies. Not even the unkempt soil can keep a Bluebonnet from producing its lovely blossoms. People can be similar to the bluebonnet flower. They are born into poor soil and have to live with the challenges presented to them. Kids from neglectful or abusive families are bluebonnet children. We are trained in children’s and family ministry that the parent is the primary faith nurturer. But what happens to a child who does not have a healthy parent to nourish them? Whether you serve in a school, nonprofit program, or the local church, this book will equip you with helpful tools and inspire you with hope-filled stories. While the tale of the bluebonnet child is heavy, in Christ there is hope. He is counting on you to shower them with the healing waters of His grace as they bloom through life.

Because His Heart Was Strong

Because His Heart Was Strong

We were passing East Lawn Cemetery during this short-lived hush, allowing me to clearly hear the radio. A song by MercyMe just so happened to be playing entitled “Dear Younger Me,” and the lyrics hit me hard: Dear younger me.

“That was the moment, the turning point. That was the moment I fully understood the depth of Daddy’s love for me. Similar to the love of Christ, I knew his lack of consciousness—or even more realistically, the hostility of death’s doorstep—could not interfere with my father’s matchless love for his only daughter. While Christ’s suffering made me realize His love for me, my daddy’s suffering made me realize my love for him.” Losing a parent is never easy. Losing a good parent is even crueler. But losing an admirable parent comparable to Christ, it’s an extremely bitter truth to accept. Written from the viewpoint of an undeniable Daddy’s girl, Because His Heart was Strong entwines the captivating journey of Rick Owens’ final decade of life through her own story, including the remarkable courage he demonstrated amidst prolonged suffering and the sheer legacy he imparted in death, highlighting the faith he placed in his Savior through it all.

At nineteen years old, and one month into marriage I found myself in the ER. I was so emaciated my heart was at risk of giving out at any moment. How had this happened to me? I knew my loved ones would see this as the last straw, and force me into recovery. This just couldn’t happen! Not while I was still the fattest anorexic in existence! I was humiliated, confused, and terrified as I slowly began to accept the fact that I couldn’t live like this anymore without dying. If I wanted to live to see twenty, I would have to leave behind the eating disorder that had become my identity, and plunge headlong into the horrifying uncertainty of recovery.
