Music Monday - Nichole Nordeman #MusicMonday
Posted on August 21st, 2017

Some songs just really hit you right in the heart, and that's the case for me with "Dear Me" by contemporary Christian singer/songwriter Nichole Nordeman.

It's a song written to the girl she used to be - a young and innocent girl who had preconceived notions about the world. But, as time marched on, her mind and heart changed.

I relate to this song so much, because that was me. When I was a teenager, I had some serious convictions about some hot-button topics. As I've grown older and wiser, I've learned that the world isn't black and white. There's so much gray, and what's best for me may not be what's best for someone else--and vice versa. People are sometimes handed impossible situations, and when faced with them, I believe those they consider family and friends need to offer tolerance and grace, not judgment.

The song also reminds me of my very first novel, Lessons Learned. Sarah and Lucas are faced with a student confiding in them about a secret that's sure to shake up his entire life, not to mention the small town of Sycamore Falls. The two teachers stay true to their own beliefs and convictions while showing grace and love to their student.
