#59: Delete + Reset: Navigating hard conversations with Esther Littlefield

Grace In Real Life podcast

What is a hard conversation? Why do we avoid them? What are do’s and don’t’s in initiating a difficult conversation? Through Delete + Rest, an every-other-week series, we talk about mindsets we need to delete because they don’t serve us well then we reset our brains with the truth.  In this interview, Esther + I tackle a topic that is an ongoing struggle for try-hard girls: having a hard conversation.  Esther defines what a hard conversation is, shares four keys to discerning when to bring up a hard topic, and offers do’s and don’t’s as you navigate your next difficult conversation. She also gives you practical ways to initiate a hard conversation and what good can come out of a difficult dialogue. Key Quotes “If we can spend our time thinking and preparing our hearts and preparing what we want to say then we can have the hard conversation.” - Esther Littlefield “Having a hard conversation is a learning process.” - Esther Littlefield “If we’ve done our part, we have to let go of the response of the other person.” - Esther Littlefield “We can study. We can use biblical principles. And we can pray before having a hard conversation.” - Esther Littlefield “Being willing to hear the other person’s perspective is so important in having that hard conversation.” - Esther Littlefield “Part of having a hard conversation with God is processing what you’re feeling about the situation.” - Esther Littlefield “Having a hard conversation reflects the heart of Christ in the effort to have reconciliation and restoration of a relationship or situation.” - Esther Littlefield Mentioned in the Podcast The FCC requires that I tell you that I'm an Amazon Affiliate, which means I earn a bit of commission on each sale.

Episode #31: Real-life grace for the Enneagram One with Esther Littlefield

Grace In Real Life podcast

We’re launching a series of interviews with women of each Enneagram type. But you may be wondering, “What does the Enneagram have to do with grace?” The Enneagram allows you to peel back all the behaviors, patterns, and coping mechanisms that conceal the real you. Knowing your Enneagram type allows you to recognize why you do what you do. Then you can exchange hurtful mindsets and behaviors for God-centered truth and courage. Change starts with knowledge, which invites you to bring your wounds, hurts, and fears to the feet of Christ and ask for His help.   You can only offer grace to what and who you know. So let’s know ourselves! To learn more about Enneagram Ones, go here.  In this interview, Esther and I break down: What it’s like to be an Enneagram One How to manage the tension between working with excellence and being obsessive-compulsive in the pursuit of perfection What it’s like to lead as a One The fallacy of being an “extra-special Christian” Why having fun and doing nothing is actually a spiritual practice of grace How to move away from legalism And ways to extend grace to the Ones in your life.  Key Quotes “There are times you just have to be done.” - Esther Littlefield “I’ve tried to differentiate between the effort I’ve put in and separating that from the results that come after the effort.” - Esther Littlefield “Give your effort to God and give God the results.” - Esther Littlefield “What’s amazing about grace and the gospel is that there isn’t anything I have to do. And at the same time, it feels too good to be true.” - Esther Littlefield “When you get to know God and get to know His Word, it’s easier to shift away from legalism.” - Esther Littlefield “When you think about yourself, make sure you’re speaking truth, resting in the love God has for you.” - Esther Littlefield About Esther Littlefield Esther is a writer and host of the Christian Woman Leadership Podcast as well as the Christian Woman Business Podcast.

Asking God "Why?" with Esther Littlefield

Finding Something Real

On today’s Episode, Janell and her co-host Nora speak with Esther Littlefield, a writer, podcaster, and entrepreneur. Esther grew up in a Christian home and took belief for granted. At the age of 13, a horrific accident changed her life.  She went from believing that if something bad happens, pray and God would fix it -to a place of anger and questions. Through her faith journey she learned to trust God for each day, one day at a time. She shares advice for the person who’s feeling angry with God right now as well as advice for the friend who wants to love a suffering friend well.Mentioned in this podcast:EstherLittlefield.comChristian Women Business PodcastMama Bear ApologeticsFSR Season 1 Episode 7 with Hillary Morgan Ferrer2 Corinthians 12:9-10But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strongPsalm 13How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever?    How long will you hide your face from me?How long must I take counsel in my soul    and have sorrow in my heart all the day?How long shall my enemy be exalted over me? Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;    light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death, lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed over him,”    lest my foes rejoice because I am shaken. But I have trusted in your steadfast love;    my heart shall rejoice in your salvation. I will sing to the Lord,    because he has dealt bountifully with me.

037: Leading with God-Confidence with Esther Littlefield | The Living Room

The Living Room with Joanna Weaver

"Will you be faithful to serve God when you are still in the shadows?" In this episode, writer & host of The Christian Woman Leadership Podcast, Esther Littlefield, shares her journey of learning to trust God and lead with confidence.Esther has always had a desire to lead women, but it didn't happen overnight. One of her biggest challenges was confidence. After looking in other directions for validation and confidence, she discovered it was only available in Christ. As she remained faithful to obey and serve God with whatever He placed in front of her, He eventually opened the door, both in the church and the business world, for her to lead women like she had always dreamed.Whether you've always felt called to lead or have recently had it thrust upon you, God wants to equip and strengthen you for the work He has called you to!{ USE PLAYER BAR @ TOP OF PAGE to listen to show, subscribe and share }Important Takeaways from Show We are all leading in some area (i.e. parenting, work, church, friendships) To discern where and how God wants you to lead: Pray and reflect on the areas you are most excited about or feel God uses you the most and ask how He wants to use you to lead in that area Act in response to God's direction Rather than trying to find God's will, “Watch to see where God is working and join Him” (Henry T Blackaby, Experiencing God) A closed door does not mean a broken dream; sometimes it just means "wait" "Closed doors are not rejection, they are direction" ~ Joanna Weaver Be faithful to do what God has in front of you right now and trust Him to show you the next steps "Deepen the message. Let God broaden the ministry" ~ Joanna Weaver God knows where and when we are ready to lead others; we will replicate what we are Confidence grows as we take small actions of faith and obedience Your worth has to come from God, not the role you feel called to Acknowledge the areas you feel insecure or lack confidence and take them to God Invite God into your fears and broken places Confidence in not about you; it is about the God who lives in you Look in God's Word for the truth of who He is and what He says about you The root of confidence is trust in God God wants to bring wholeness to every area of our lives, not just the ones we feel called to lead in True confidence and flourishing operates out of our close walk with the LordBut blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,    whose confidence is in him. ~ Jeremiah 17:7Links from ShowThe Christian Woman Leadership Podcast Morningstar Media Services[Disclosure: I make a small commission from affiliate links used in this post.] Connect with Esther LittlefieldWebsite | Facebook| InstagramConnect with Joanna Facebook | Pinterest | Instagram | TwitterGet Episode Updates!We'd love to have you join our special Living Room Podcast email list.
