Tough Decisions about Tomorrow

Every day we make decisions. Some decisions are life-altering and require much time and attention. As children of God, we have “an edge” when it comes to making important choices. We can look back over our lives and see where God has been at work. We can see a pattern of His guidance, pray for His direction, and make decisions from there. In the past, as I have found myself looking for a new job in a new town, I {Read More}

Which Wall is Your Ladder Leaning Against?

We live in a busy culture–too busy at times. Let me remind you that we work to live; we ought not live to work. Spouses who spend their entire lives giving their best shot to the company often make a sad discovery as they grow older. Though they’ve reached the top of the corporate ladder, they discover it’s leaning against the wrong wall. A successful businessman once refused to participate in a heart disease reduction program at work. “Why would {Read More}

Mercy in the Marketplace

”If you had known what these words mean, I desire mercy, not sacrifice, you would not have condemned the innocent.” [Matthew 12:7] Unlike the jungles of Africa the mission fields of the western world are found in the fields of business and commerce. Those of us called to this mission field see daily the consequences of; broken lives, bloated selfishness and beleaguered children of God who have fogged their minds and fashioned their hearts with the things of this world.

Leaving with Integrity

  All changes are more or less tinged with melancholy, for what we are leaving behind is part of ourselves. –Amelia Barr The year was 1996.  We were in transition from the state of California to the state of Texas because of a job that had ended.  I’ll never forget crossing the state line between California into Arizona and looking in the rear-view mirror.  Tears ran down my face as I saw the last California palm tree I would see {Read More}

Keeping Life in Sync

I remember reading a quote that went something like this…“Life is what happens while you’re planning something else.” A statement that could not be truer for a working mom. Life can come in the minor inconvenience of a mid-morning phone call from the school nurse asking you to pick up your sick child right now, a leaky roof that a repair man has to come investigate, or an otherwise reliable car that suddenly will not start. Or sadly, life could {Read More}

Keeping the Tongue in Check

Beba Schlottmann Nothing will tarnish your testimony more than engaging in back-stabbing gossip and slander with co-workers. I recall one of my husband’s assignments to minister at a church–we had just been hired and were having lunch with the staff. The pastor could not come with us so for the entire meal we listened to the staff members talk about their pastor. It was the most uncomfortable experience I’ve had. My husband and I could not get up and leave because {Read More}

Politics in the Workplace

Beba Schlottmann Avoiding office discussions on politics these days can be hard to do with all the attention our government is getting. Politics is one of those discussions that can lead to arguments which can cause bad blood between co-workers and make the workplace a dreadful place each day. Try to focus conversations on subjects that will encourage and inspire people.
