Going All In To Save A Life – Special Kidney Edition

Sometimes the relationships in our workplace and our community go to an all new level. Sometimes God asks you to go all in with a friend to save a life.  Joe Carroll felt the call to give his friend Larry Matthews one of his kidneys but after all the qualifying, it turns out Joes kidney is wired up with such complexity, the plumbing just can’t be undone.  A huge disappointment for Larry and his wife Julie but also for Joe and his wife Martha. …So, Larry still needs a kidney. I understand. My friend Bill went through the same scenario. He needed a kidney and we did a show telling the world of his need. One of his good friends Bob from Canada stepped forward to donate but it didn’t work out for Bob to be able to donate either. Then God had me step in and I was given the greatest gift of my life…next to Jesus…and I got to donate my kidney to my friend Bill on 12/10/18.  

This special show is all about the miracle of life and the miracle of being able to serve a friend with a body part most of us can do without. It isn’t a sacrifice to donate a kidney it is a privilege that few will experience.  In this show, we are going to give you a chance to get that honor because like I said, Larry still needs a kidney donor.

Together On Tuesdays – Covid 19 Relationship Challenges At Home

It’s been almost 6 months since Covid 19 invaded our world. It alone has shifted the paradigm for every citizen of the United States of America. We have gone from a fast and crazy world where relationships get little to know attention to a slowed down and kept inside world where relationships with those at home are all we have. Today Martha and I are going to talk about those relationship challenges at home, specifically our marriages and how it impacts our work and we will also talk about the impact of Covid on our other relationships at work too.

The Intersection Of Faith And Work

Where did iWork4Him come from and how are we adjusting to the new Covid 19 world?  Where is iWork4Him heading the rest of 2020 and how do we see the intersection of faith and work playing out in the new work from home world? All this and more as Martha and I get interviewed by Dr. Jack Klem and Ben Armstrong on the Intersection Podcast.

Small Church Explosion

It’s been 4 months now. Across the country, church buildings have been closed and even when limited gatherings have been allowed, singing has been forbidden. In Nevada, it is okay to have the casino open, but churches remain closed. Is this the work of the enemy or has it been allowed by an almighty God? This same God that allowed the death of Stephen to scatter his church across the Roman Empire. This same God may have allowed this virus and restrictions to scatter the church across communities for them to see the significance of their ministry in their own neighborhood. Across the country Christians have been set loose to do the ministry that Jesus called them too almost 2000 years ago. In essence, Small is big and we are unleashing the power of intentionally small churches because that is what the law will allow. You may be asking what does this have to do with iWork4Him, EVERYTHING.  The body of Christ has already been scattered across workplaces in America for centuries, it is only now that we are realizing the significance of this scattering. We are all called to our work and our homes to be a light to fight the darkness. We’re talking with Tony and Felicity Dale, experts in the small church movement who have seen it transform London in the 70’s and 80’s and are hoping this explosion of small churches in America will transform our great country.

Checking Under The Hood

You wouldn’t buy a used lawn mower without making sure it works, you wouldn’t buy a home without a home inspection and you wouldn’t buy a used car without checking under the hood so why is it we invest in our 401k or 403b or an IRA without checking to see what it is invested in?  I have no idea but I do know that this can be a dangerous and slippery slope – it’s like eating sausage without knowing what was put in it, as long as it’s all ground up, it looks good but who knows what’s really in it. Could it kill you? Probably not if its cooked but it could make you sick. The same with your 401k or 403 b – what its invested in probably won’t kill you but it could make you sick. Talking with us today to clear up any confusion is Luke Andrews with iInvest4Him.com and Inspire Advisors. How we do our work is a direct reflection of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. How we invest HIS money should be that way as well.
