If you’ve ever struggled with finding meaning in your work, you need to watch today’s episode. I get to interview the brilliant author and entrepreneur Jordan Raynor, who shares why our work matters to God and to the people around us. We’ll also spend a few minutes journaling about how we can honor God in our work.

 

How to Be Proud of the Work That You Do

Work is hard—especially if you’re feeling bored or burned out at your job. In this video, I’ll share one important truth that will help you wake up excited, not overwhelmed, about the day ahead.

 

How God Uses You in Your Work with Jordan Raynor

Have you ever felt like the only way you can serve God is by becoming a pastor or joining a full-time ministry? Today, my friend Jordan Raynor explains why all types of work matter to God.

 

Does God Care About Your Work?

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”

Colossians 3:23 (NIV)

 

This verse completely changed my perspective on work. I don’t know about you, but when I know that God cares about the details of my work, it makes me want to step it up, give it my best effort, and work to please him. Whether you’re the CEO in the corner office, or you’re waiting tables, or you’re a stay-at-home mom, God wants each of us to put our entire heart into our work.

Spend a few minutes journaling your answers to these questions:

  1. Where do you see God in your work right now?
  2. How can you remember that God is using you right now in your work?
  3. How can you do your work unto the Lord more intentionally?

In today’s episode, we’re talking about how to get through the hard, confusing times in life. We’ll hear from author, speaker and Bible teacher Angie Smith about how to trust God when we don't understand what He's doing. And finally, we'll end with a few journal questions about how God's word encourages us through difficulty.

 

When Things Don’t Go Your Way, Remember This

Are you feeling lost? When we’re in the middle of hard things, we quickly lose perspective and give up hope. In this video, I’ll share an important truth that will help you find the courage to keep going.

 

Do THIS When Life Doesn’t Make Sense with Angie Smith

When you’re going through something hard, it’s easy to question, God, where are you? I sat down with my good friend Angie Smith and talked about how to trust God even when we don’t understand the story He’s writing.

 

How Your Story Fits Into God’s Story

“For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.”

Romans 15:4 (NIV)

 

From beginning to end, the Bible is full of hope. When we open the Scriptures, we find encouragement for our story by reading about the greater story. Here are a few journal questions to help unpack this idea:

  1. Have you ever thought of the Bible as one big story?
  2. What is the point of the story of Scripture?
  3. What part of God’s story do you want to know more about?

Y’all, today’s episode is so much fun. We’re talking about how to get excited about life again, just like we were when we were kids. I also get to have an awesome conversation with Harris III (an illusionist, speaker, author and entrepreneur) on the topic of wonder. Finally, we’ll wrap up the show with a few journal questions.

 

What to Do When Life Gets Boring

Between all the errands and chores and work tasks and commitments, it’s easy to feel like you’re running a business instead of actually living your life. If you’re tired of going through the motions, check out these three steps that will help you break out of boredom and experience more joy and wonder.

 

Is THIS Stealing Your Joy? with Harris III

According to Harris III, wonder is “A childlike state in which we have permission to believe in a story we have yet to see.” The problem is, so many of us live with negative stories running through our heads all day. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Harris III shares some practical tips on how to change your story and see limitless possibilities for your life.

 

What Fills You With Wonder?

“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?”

Psalm 8:3–4 (NIV)

 

God is performing miracles around us all the time. But often, we’re so caught up in our crazy lives that we don’t even notice what He’s doing! When we actually pause to look at the world around us and see how creative and powerful our God is, we’ll be filled with a sense of wonder.

I want to give you some journal questions to help you process this:

  1. What fills you with wonder?
  2. What gets in the way of you being filled with wonder and awe?
  3. What’s one thing you want to do to take action on this idea of wonder so you can create it in your own life?

Today, we’re talking about the one thing that we often miss when trying to reach our goals. I also get to interview the brilliant entrepreneur Pat Flynn, who shares tactical advice on turning creative ideas into real businesses. And we’ll end the show with a few journal questions about overcoming the obstacles that stand between us and our dreams.

 

The One Thing You Need to Do to Reach Your Goals

Do you have a dream or a goal that always seems out of reach? Then you’re probably missing this one simple strategy.

 

What You Need to Know to Build Your Business with Pat Flynn

Creatives and entrepreneurs are yes-people. We have a million ideas a minute! So how do you decide which ones are worth your time and attention? I asked Pat Flynn that exact question in our interview. He has lots of practical advice to share about balancing our current projects with our squirrel-brain ideas.

 

What Are Your Goals and Dreams in Life?

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”

Galatians 6:7 (NIV)

 

I love this verse because it reminds us that we are responsible for the choices we make in life. We’re going to get results based on the actions we take—good or bad. Yes, God is at work in us, but we get to partner with Him. That’s pretty incredible, y’all. 

Spend a few minutes digging into this concept by answering these journal questions:

  1. What are those things you’ve been thinking about but haven’t done anything about yet?
  2. What’s one small action step you can take this week?
  3. What comes to your mind when you think about “You reap what you sow”?

When you’re anxious about something, it’s easy to get stuck in your own head. Today, we’ll talk about three practical ways to stop worrying. Plus, I get to interview author and counselor Sissy Goff about how to help our kids when they’re facing mental health challenges. And we’ll wrap up the show with a few journal questions about how we can worry less and trust God more.

 

3 Ways to Stop Worrying

There are a million things we can worry about. And when your thoughts start to run away from you, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stuck. Here are three ways to stop worrying before it gets out of control.

 

What to Do When Your Child Is Anxious with Sissy Goff

My guest for today, Sissy Goff, has been a counselor for 30 years. In our interview, she shares practical tips on how to spot the warning signs of anxiety in our kids and how to love them well through mental health challenges.

 

Don’t Worry About THIS . . .

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life . . .”

Matthew 6:25 (NIV)

 

I love this passage because it reminds us that it’s actually possible to train our minds not to worry! Instead of listening to negative thoughts and worrying about the same old problems, we can choose to focus on our heavenly Father, who loves us and is always taking care of us.

Easier said than done, right? To help make this truth a reality, spend some time journaling your answers to these questions: 

  1. What do you worry about the most?
  2. How does Matthew 6:25­–34 help you remember not to worry?
  3. What comfort do you find when you remember that God will take care of you?

On this episode, we’re talking about why you should love yourself. (I know some of you will disagree with me on this, which is why I want you to tune in!) I’ll also talk to my friend Crystal Paine about her new book, Love-Centered Parenting, and how we can love ourselves while loving our kids. And we’ll close today’s show with a few journal questions.

 

Why Loving Yourself Doesn’t Have to be Selfish

Some of you are already mad at me for bringing this up. As Christians, we’re not supposed to love ourselves, right? Here are three reasons why self-love is actually a good thing.

 

Become a Great Parent with Crystal Paine

You can’t offer something you don’t have. So, if you’re not receiving the love of your heavenly father, how can you give love to others? In today’s interview, Crystal Paine—author, speaker and entrepreneur—talks about her new book, Love-Centered Parenting, and why loving our kids well starts with letting God love us.

 

Love Others (as Yourself)

“The most important [commandment],” answered Jesus, “is this . . . ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”

Mark 12:29–31 (NIV)

 

When Jesus says to “love your neighbor as yourself,” he’s implying that we already do love ourselves. It’s our gut instinct to love and protect and take care of ourselves, so we should have that same level of care for the people around us. Let’s unpack this idea with a few journal questions:

  1. Who’s someone you love? Describe your love for that person.
  2. Be honest: What do you think about yourself?
  3. Why is it hard for you to love yourself?

Today, we’re talking about how to make room for quiet time—which is something we all want but rarely get. Also, we'll get to hear from author Brittany Ann about falling in love with God’s word. We'll wrap up today's show by journaling about making quiet time a priority.

 

3 Ways to Make Time for Quiet Time

For years, I struggled to read scripture, even though I know how powerful it is! But thankfully, I discovered a system that helped me overcome the obstacles that were keeping me from time with God. In this video, I unpack my system in three simple steps.

 

How to Enjoy Reading Your Bible with Brittany Ann

The REAL problem most of us have with our quiet time is that we’re not passionate about spending time with God. In today’s interview, I talk to author and Bible teacher Brittany Ann about her new book, Fall in Love with God’s Word. She’ll share practical strategies about bridging the gap between wanting to read more and actually doing it.

 

You Need THIS to Read Your Bible

“All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16–17 (NIV)

 

All of the things we could ever want or need in life are found in God’s word. So, why does it feel like a chore to open up our Bibles? I encourage you to dig deep on this topic by responding to these journal questions:  

  1. How do you feel about reading your Bible?
  2. What would help you have alone time?
  3. What is one thing you could do this week to give yourself what you need to have that alone time?

Sometimes the state of our house can have an impact on the state of our mind. I’ve been there. That’s why I want to share five simple things you can put into practice so you can stop feeling like a mess—even when your house is messy!

 

How to Make Life Simpler with Emily Ley

My friend Emily Ley is a speaker, author and simplicity expert. One of the things I love about her teaching is that she gives small, practical tips we can use every day to organize and manage our lives better.

 

The Secret to Loving Your House

“I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty.”

Philippians 4:11–12 (NIV)

 

Even with a spotless, Pinterest-perfect house, we can still be unhappy with what we have. That’s why this verse from Philippians is so powerful: It reminds us that with the power of the Holy Spirit, we can be content in any circumstance!

Let’s bring this concept home by answering these journal questions:

  1. What do you love about your home?
  2. How does it change the way you view your home when you set your mind on what you’re grateful for?
  3. How can you practice being content in your home, your life, and your situations right now?

Today, we’re talking about life balance. Is it even possible? And what exactly do we mean by “balance” in the first place? Also, I get to interview my good friend, career expert and bestselling author Ken Coleman about how to create balance at work. And finally, we’ll close with a few journal questions so you can reflect on what helps you feel balanced.

 

Feeling Out of Balance? Here’s Why.

Everyone wants to know how to get more done with less time. I sure do! As a wife, mother of three kids under 6, speaker and author, I never feel like I have enough time. But as I’ve researched life balance over the years, I’ve discovered that we’re getting it all wrong. I’ll explain what I mean in this video.

If you’re struggling to find purpose in your career, my good friend Ken Coleman has some words of advice and encouragement for you. He’s a bestselling author, speaker and career expert who can help you discover and pursue the unique role you were created to do.

 

What Makes You Feel Balanced?

“So I saw that there is nothing better for a person than to enjoy their work . . .”

Ecclesiastes 3:22 (NIV)

 

Your life is too important to waste it doing something you hate—especially if you’re doing it 40+ hours a week. Our work has a huge impact on our sense of life balance. To help you figure out how you can create more balance in your career, take a few moments to write out your answers to these questions:

  1. What makes you feel out of balance?
  2. What makes you feel balanced?
  3. How are you going to incorporate those things into your life?

And we’ll end the show with a few journal questions to reflect on how you can use your gifts to make a lasting impact on the people around you.

 

Why Focusing on Your Strengths Leads to Success

Have you ever wondered what you’re good at? I sure have. Back in eighth grade, I was cut from every sports team I tried out for. I couldn’t even join student council or chorus that year! If you’re struggling to find what you’re good at, I want to share five questions that will help you identify and understand your unique gifts and abilities.

 

Are You Ready to Maximize Your God-Given Potential? with John Bevere

We all want to make an impact on the world. And for those of us who are Christ followers, we want to make sure we’re building up the kingdom of God. In our interview, bestselling author and speaker John Bevere offers some practical guidance on how to maximize our potential for good.

 

Are You Using Your Gifts to the Best of Your Ability?

“To one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability.” 

Matthew 25:15 (ESV)

 

Want to know something incredible? God chose to give you certain gifts and abilities. But with those gifts comes a responsibility. God expects us to use our talents to make a difference in the world! 

This is a big deal. Take some time to answer these journal questions based on today’s teaching:

  1. What are your gifts?
  2. Where, how and when are you using your gifts?
  3. How can you multiply your gifts?

Today, we’re talking about something we all want but may not know how to find: great friendships. I'll share four practical steps you can take to make and keep awesome friends. Also, I get to sit down with two of my best friends, Jenny and Sarah. We'll wrap up the show with a few journal questions about the importance of friendship.

 

4 Ways to Have Great Friendships as an Adult

Let’s face it: It’s hard to make friends as an adult. We don’t have many natural ways to meet new people. We get set in our ways and get busy with kids and work and errands. If you want to have more friends—or better friendships—you’re going to have to decide to make time for it. Here are four practical actions you can take to get started!

 

How to Make Time for Friends

In today’s interview, I get to sit down with two of my real-life best friends! Through all of life’s ups and downs and changes and challenges, we’ve managed to make time for each other. No—it’s not always easy to coordinate calendars. But it’s worth it. We’ll share some of secrets that have helped us maintain our friendship for almost two decades.

 

What Do Your Friendships Look Like?

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 (NIV)

 

We weren’t created to live alone. We need community. I want you to have people who will be there for you—people you can laugh and cry with, share the bad things with, and celebrate your milestones with. To start making some practical changes in the area of friendship, spend some time journaling your thoughts to these questions: 

  1. What are you looking for in friendships right now?
  2. What specific types of friendships do you desire this year?
  3. What’s one step you can take to grow your friendships this year?

Women, I believe, face a specific challenge: We downplay our success out of a sense of shame. I tackle that lie in today's show. I also get to interview Jamie Kern Lima, founder of IT Cosmetics, which is the fastest-growing cosmetic company in the world. She knows a thing or two about success! Finally, we'll wrap with some journaling prompts about celebrating—not shaming—our success.

 

You Need to Stop Doing This Today . . . 

Why is it so hard to accept compliments? I believe it’s because we don’t know what true humility looks like. The next time someone notices or congratulates you, don’t dismiss or downplay it. Say this instead.

 

Why It’s Okay to Be Successful with Jamie Kern Lima

Before she started IT Cosmetics, Jamie Kern Lima was saving her tip money from waiting tables at Denny’s to buy fancy makeup. But just a few years ago, she sold her company for $1.2 billion! In our interview, Jamie shares the lessons she’s learned about hard work, rejection and—ultimately—success.

 

How Do You Respond to Compliments?

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”

— James 1:17 (NIV)

 

There’s nothing we accomplish or enjoy on our own effort. Every single thing—from our relationships to our skills to our opportunities—is a gift from God. That’s a humbling (and freeing) truth! Let’s unpack it with a few journaling questions:

  1. How do you normally respond to compliments?
  2. What does humility look like to you?
  3. How can you practice being grateful for everything God has done and is doing in your life?

Today, we’re talking about one of my favorite topics ever: confidence! Also, I’m so excited to share part two of my interview with Matthew McConaughey. He tells some personal stories about how he’s built confidence throughout his life. And finally, I’ll leave you with a few journal questions that will help you walk boldly into the new things God is doing in your life.

 

Why You Should Take More Risks

Life is full of challenges that feel too big for us. When you’re facing something scary, should you wait until you feel confident before acting, or should you just go for it? I’ll unpack the answer in today’s teaching.

 

How Matthew McConaughey Built Confidence

What’s the secret to confidence? It’s knowing who you are. And it helps when people in your life remind you when you’ve forgotten. Matthew McConaughey shares an inspiring (and hilarious) story about how his mom instilled a sense of confidence in him from a young age.

 

How to Listen to God

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?”

— Isaiah 43:18­–19 (NIV)

 

New things are both exciting and scary. Maybe you find yourself starting a new position at work, entering a new season of life, or launching a new business. Whatever you’re experiencing, here are a few journal questions that will help you process what’s going on:

  1. What new thing do you sense God is doing in your life?
  2. What do you sense God is urging you to do about it?
  3. What would it look like to just try it?
