  • We live in a world surrounded by “over-the-top” talented and gifted people. Sometimes this reality can cause us to experience feelings of inadequacy, moments of insecurity and questions of what good enough really means and does what we have to give really matter. The answer to all is a resounding Yes. God gave you the talents and gifts you possess with purpose in mind. Have you ever noticed the joy and satisfaction that well-up from ...   Read More
  • Develop Where You Are

    By: Ron Edmondson
    I’ve seen so many potentially great leaders waste opportunities because they were waiting for the perfect scenario before they begin to develop as a leader. They don’t enjoy where they are currently in life or work — so they think there is nothing to be gained where they are now. They aren’t in their dream job — so they don’t look for the benefits of being in the present situation. They don’t respect the ...   Read More
  • Sometimes it is real, other times it's imagined, but the feeling of failure is acute. Disappointment in one's self is heart breaking and soul damaging. Paralyzing to the very core. But as the saying goes, failure is not fatal. Nor is it defining. You are not a failure. You're not. You're an overcomer. No matter how many times you have missed the mark, or how great the fall, failure is not your destination. So pick yourself up and let these thoughts ...   Read More
  • In his book The Millionaire Mind, Thomas J. Stanley asked 733 millionaires to rank 30 factors which led to their success.  The number one attribute, “being honest with all people,” tells volumes about the importance of integrity in the workplace: it is more than living out good moral principles – it is also critical for succeeding in the business world. Corporate Integrity: It Starts at the Top I used to be affiliated with ...   Read More
  • Christ is on his last pilgrimage, Luke 10:1-20 recounts. He is on his way to the cross. He chooses 70 of his followers who were zealous, intense and enthusiastic about his purpose for coming into the world. He then sends them into Judea to places where he would come on his way to Jerusalem. These are not the same as the 12 apostles. Their assignment is a temporary one. No names are given. They were anonymous disciples, but they covered a large territory ...   Read More
  • Editor's Note: The following is a report on the practical applications of Steven Garber’s new book Visions of Vocation: Common Grace for the Common Good (IVP Books, 2014). The work you do every day isn’t meant just for your own benefit; it’s for the common good of everyone in the world. No matter what type of work you do – from caring for your children or running a business at home, to serving at an organization in any professional ...   Read More
  • One-third of our lives, at a minimum, we spend focused on building our careers. Whether you own a company, work for an employer, or spend your time and energy as a creative, numerous hours accumulate as you manage and balance the stresses of your career. The Bible clearly spells out best how to successfully fill this role.  “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it” (Genesis 2:15). ...   Read More

    By: Sarah Newsome, Vanderbloemen Search Group
    The decision to begin the search for a new job can be a difficult one.

But perhaps you realize that, in spite of the challenges of looking for a new ministry role, it’s the right time. You’ve sensed God stirring something in you, you’ve prayed ...   Read More
  • You have a dream in your heart. You fully believe God put it there himself, and you’ll stop at nothing to work towards this dream. You determine in your spirit to work hard, keep your eye on the goal, even doing something every day that will make what seems so out of grasp, a reality for which you’ve longed. Enter on the scene – a dream killer. You share it with someone you trust, hoping to hear their wise thoughts and encouragement. ...   Read More
  • I serve on the board of a local youth leadership program. These students are the top of their class, so the entry is competitive. Part of qualifying process is an interview with board members — most who are seasoned business and community leaders. I am always reminded in the process how interviewing, as critical as it is to acquiring a position, is not something everyone knows how to do — regardless of their other accomplishments. I’ve ...   Read More
