Susie Davis is the kind of woman we could talk to for hours. Because she is in a word: wise. This is not to make her sound old, but rather filled with wisdom to pass on to those coming behind her. And we aren’t the only ones who think so. She talks to us in this episode about how mentoring relationships have naturally happened over the years through her relationships with younger women. Which is why she is starting a podcast, Letters to My Daughters. Because all of us ‘daughters in the faith’ as she calls us, can learn from the life she has lived.
Susie is a mom to three and a mother-in-law to almost three. In fact right after we taped this episode she was going to pick up her youngest daughter’s wedding dress. We talk about the tragedy Susie’s own young life that began a journey of intense fear. This fear followed her into adulthood and an encounter with God. Out of that came her book Unafraid: Trusting God in an Unsafe World.
Listen in to hear about her favorite pens that come in seasonal colors (Oooh yes!) and why going outside helps her clear her mind. You really won’t be sorry you joined us for this episode and you will have a new podcast to add to your list in Letters to My Daughters because you will want more of Susie!

Donald Miller’s blog post, Why You Need a Mid-Life Crisis
1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
Why are you so far from saving me,
so far from my cries of anguish?
2 My God, I cry out by day, but you do not answer,
by night, but I find no rest.[b]
3 Yet you are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the one Israel praises.
