Comparison, Capacity and Calling

Comparison, Capacity and Calling

It may be the case that some of us have lesser capacities than others, smaller investments to make. It may be the case that someone else’s gifts seem to be more transformative in the lives of others, or are more easily seen. It is, however, most certainly the case that each person is created in the image of God and positioned in the world to reflect Him for His glory within the scope He has assigned to each (Isaiah 43:7; 2 Corinthians 10:13).

All Work Matters

All Work Matters

Contrary to what our culture might tell us, our work is not defined by whether we receive a W2 for daily labors. Our work is defined by what God has put before us to do.

Multi-Level Marketing and the Church

Multi-Level Marketing and the Church

What strikes me most about these posts is that they are coming from women in the church.

Grace to Fail Forward

Grace to Fail Forward

If you were to ask a small child what they wanted to be when they grew up, they would answer something like, a doctor, a pop star, a dentist, a millionaire, it’s wired deep in us from an early age we want to be something great. We want success and fame. As we get older we still want to be great but we also want to do it right while being great. We can all handle being great so we think, but nothing trips us up in life more than when we fail. We don’t have a clue on how to give ourselves the grace to fail.

I'm a woman. I can do anything.

There has never been a time in my life that women were not considered equal (or better) than men, that women weren’t working in the same jobs as men, that we didn’t have the same voice as men, or that we weren’t allowed to vote.  Since birth, my world has been a place where women are the same... the same as men with equal pay, equal opportunity, and equal ambition.
