In this post, I will be talking about not just self-care but specifically soul-care, what does it look like to take care of your soul on a consistent basis?

S5-E2- The Power of Hearing From God in Business with Nadine Mullings

This season we are focusing on the importance of hearing God’s voice in life and specifically in business.  God speaks all the time and the way He speaks to us is specific and unique for everyone. 

This episode I share how I hear from God in life and in business and how it has impacted me.  I share three main ways that I hear from God and how I know that it is a word from God and not just something that I think I should do. 

After hearing from God the next step is being obedient to what He says to do, and that is really where the power of hearing from God comes from the blessing for the obedience.  

On this episode you will hear:

  • The 3 ways that I hear from God
  •  How I hear from God when something drops in my Spirit and I’m convicted
  • How God speaks to me by sending a message three times from three different sources within a short span of time

Chronos Time v. Kairos Time

REPOST 6/15/2021

Last week on the blog I discussed the difference between busy work v life’s work and how a large percentage of our time on earth will be spent working, so it’s important to make sure you are doing your life’s work and not just busy work. If you missed the post, be sure to check it out.

This week I want to explore the definition of time and go a little deeper on the topic of how we spend our time. I recently have been becoming more aware of the concept of Kairos. According to Wikipedia, Kairos is an Ancient Greek word meaning the right, critical, or opportune moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos and Kairos. The former refers to chronological or sequential time, while the latter signifies a proper or opportune time for action.

Human Being v. Human Doing

REPOST- 6/22/21

When you first meet someone at a networking event, one of the first things that you might ask is “So, what do you do?” What we do plays so much of a large part of who we are that as a society we tend to focus on what we do instead of how we are being.  We would never ask someone “How are you being?” we would however say “How are you doing?”  The concept and fact that we are human beings and not human doings is so important that I decided to focus on this topic this week.    

I remember at an event that I was hosting several years ago one of the attendees mentioned that she created a “being list” in addition to a “doing list”.  This concept always stuck out to me because I thought Wow! that’s such a good idea! We are so used to creating daily “To do” lists with all the things we need to get done, but have we stopped to create a daily “To be” list with all the ways we want to feel and show up in the world?

In this post, we will focus on human being v human doing.

Busy Work v. Life’s Work

REPOST FROM 6/8/2021

Did you know that your time is one of your most valuable assets?  During our lifetime we will spend a large percentage of our time working on our jobs.  In fact, it is estimated that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.

So considering this, it would make sense that we choose a job or career that we find enjoyable and impactful.  However, many people work in jobs or even careers that they don’t even enjoy for months or even years!

It’s so easy to get stuck in a cycle of doing work that we don’t enjoy if we think of a job as a way to make money to pay bills, but I believe strongly that God did not put us on the earth to pay bills and die!  He has given each of us a bigger purpose and He desires us to use our talents, abilities, gifts, and skills (I like to call our T.A.G.S.) to do purpose-driven work which is our life’s work.

So how do we identify the difference between “busy work” and our “life’s work“?  I attempt to break it down in this post.
