If you aren’t familiar with Propel, get familiar! With the mission of “celebrating every woman’s passion, purpose, and potential” this organization consistently offers incredible resources for women looking to walk in the fullness of who God made them to be.
As a young person in seminary, I resonated with this Propel piece by Sharon Hodde Miller, How to Be a Young Leader.
“To all the young writers, doctors, managers, lawyers, dreamers, pastors, and leaders, do not be discouraged because of your age. The Holy Spirit always fills in the gaps, no matter your age.
But now is the time, perhaps more than ever, to put on humility (1 Peter 5:5). Devote yourself to the long-term work of earning authority, rather than assuming it. Be quick to listen and slow to speak by embracing a teachable spirit. And remember that in this season of just starting out, when you aren’t given the authority or affirmation you crave, it’s a grace. God readies us in the dark so that we aren’t destroyed by the spotlight. He writes the experience of weakness onto our hearts, so that we aren’t ruined by power.”
