Redeeming Your Time

New Year’s is the time to make resolutions – and Jordan Raynor is the king of living out what he learns. Jordan’s new book, Redeeming Your Time: 7 Biblical Principles for Being Purposeful, Present, and Wildly Productive, is all about taking what he has learned in Scripture and applying it to daily life. This fantastic read is full of practical insights and wisdom – all based on Scripture. Join us as Jordan talks about cultivating a Gospel-centric approach to ambition and rest!

A few take-aways from today’s conversation:

  • Rest is productive
  • The Sabbath is essential and not a crutch
  • Redeeming his time has made Jordan more “present” in life
  • For Jordan, Principle #7 – Eliminate Hurry, has been a challenge worth addressing
  • Scripture is full of timeless principles for our everyday

Jordan and Mark Batterson have recorded a 7-part podcast called Redeem the Day that can be a great next step to this podcast and book.

Bonus Interview With iRetire4Him Author Jeff Brown

Everybody feels alone sometimes, especially when unexpected circumstances arise. Chaplains are a way for your company or organization to show its employees that they are not alone by building caring relationships over time! Chaplains provide one-on-one, grassroots ministry to employees that may never have set foot in a church before. Whether it is support through a crisis like suicide, family loss, illness, or financial distress, or a celebration like a new marriage, baby, or promotion. Whatever the life situation, chaplains are able to offer the power of presence – God’s presence!

The iWork4Him Book: Change the Way You Think About Your Faith At Work

About a year and a half ago, we set off on a journey to write a book that would encourage the everyday believer to engage with their workplace mission field. But we had NO IDEA how enormous that undertaking would be –thankfully, we didn’t do it alone! In addition to our own stories and insights, we opened the door for 23 other voices from the faith and work movement to share their stories as well. This unique collaboration resulted in an incredible resource, filled with the practical, tactical, factual, and biblical insights that every workplace believer needs to truly live out their faith at work.  

Since our roots are in radio and podcasting, we are especially excited about this audiobook version of iWork4Him! Each chapter is read by its contributing author – so you get the chance not only to hear new perspectives but also the new voices that go along with them. As our Gift to you, we are releasing the audio from the Introduction and first chapter on our podcast so you can get a feel for the content inside iWork4Him: Change the way you think about your faith at work. To listen to the rest of the audiobook CLICK HERE or go to Amazon.com. To get a hard copy of iWork4Him or our other two books, sheWorks4Him and iRetire4Him, go to iWork4Him.com/bookstore.

The Faith Driven Entrepreneur

For years God has been using Henry Kaestner to help entrepreneurs understand God’s unique plan and purpose for them. Now, all that knowledge is available in his new book, Faith Driven Entrepreneur. In today’s show, we talk with Henry about his own journey in faith and business, balancing family and work, and his book!

Often, new Christians look at being saved as limiting them in their work – feeling that they should go into full-time ministry if they want to make a Kingdom impact. But today, Henry talks with us about flipping the script. In fact, there are several great examples in the Bible of entrepreneurs, like Lydia and Paul the tentmaker. Join us as we talk about how to apply the same principles to our business and life today! Henry has a great heart and shares so much in our interview and his new book.

Bonus Interview With iRetire4Him Author Bob Spence

Retirement isn’t in the Bible. True story! We were never meant to work for 30 years and then go on a 30-year vacation. Instead, God’s intention is that we would have a purpose throughout our entire life. In other words, retirement isn’t VACATION; it’s a JOB CHANGE. In this bonus interview with our personal mentor, Bob Spence, we talk about intentional retirement, ministering in the second half of life, and cultivating a mission, vision, purpose, and core values.

Celebrating Our Blue-Collar Workers

At the ripe old age of five, Dave Hataj started working in the family business, Edgerton Gear, Inc. Although he was labeled as not being “college material,” Dave was hesitant to settle into a life of working in the gear business. However, as he wrestled with what he was meant to do with his life, God spoke to him in a way that changed his trajectory… not by taking him out of the business but by showing him that the business was his ministry. There are so many golden nuggets in this interview, and we can’t wait for you to listen and hear all that God has been doing through the work of Dave Hataj!

“Community” and “purpose” are two topics near and dear to Dave. You can learn about Dave’s ministry at craftsmanwithcharacter.org when you listen to this week’s show.  Oh, and we are giving away a copy of Dave’s book Good Work: How Blue-Collar Business Can Change Lives, Communities, and the World to 5 listeners!

Bonus Interview With sheWorks4Him Author Ellie Nieves

When Ellie was an attorney on her way up the corporate ladder, she thought that God would only get in the way of her aspirations. But as her career grew, she found that all her achievements were empty; she was missing a greater purpose or meaning – the kind that only God can fill. When we believe that our job or title or perceived success is our purpose, we are short-changing ourselves – because God has more in store for us. Moreover, our jobs are only one aspect of our lives that God wants to use to make an eternal impact. In this bonus interview, Ellie talks with us about what it looks like to glorify the Lord in the context of a Fortune 250 company, battling anxiety and fear in the face of the unexpected, and the two most important things to successfully living out your faith at work.

Discovering God’s Calling for Your Career

Today we are joined by Bryan Dik, the Chief Science Officer of jobZology and a professor of Vocational Psychology at Colorado State University, for a conversation on finding a job that fits our God-given gifts and passions. In his recent book titled, Redeeming Work, Bryan really digs into the four-act story of Scripture and the commonly believed half-truth that “God doesn’t call the equipped, He equips the called.” Tune in for our discussion on why work is a part of God’s purpose for our lives and how we can be good stewards of our gifts through job development.

There’s so much here to unpack and learn through www.jobZology.com or app.pathwayu.com where you can take an assessment to find careers that fit who you are and what you’re passionate about. Bryan encourages us to look at our career choices and development as a way of honoring how God made us. Now that sounds like a great goal to me! We have TWO copies of Bryan’s book, Redeeming Work, to give away! You can win a copy by calling the listener line at 866-713-9675 (WORK).

Bonus Interview With iWork4Him Author Chuck Proudfit

When you get up on Monday morning, do you think “I HAVE to go to work” or “I GET to go to work”? For many of us, it’s the former… but it doesn’t have to be. God originally meant for work was meant to be a form of worship – not an obligation! In this bonus interview, the founder of At Work on Purpose, Chuck Proudfit, talks with us about learning to love your job, the spiritual nature of work, backdoor ministry, and building your witness one choice at a time.
