My Top Three Takeaways as the swHw Summer Intern

Hello! My name is Lauren Croft and I had the awesome privilege of working with Michelle, James, and their family this summer as an intern for she works His way. If you’ve ever wondered what life is like inside the Myers’ household, allow me to be the one to open the front door for you. Here are my top three takeaways from this summer: They really care. Seriously, y’all. From the first phone call I had with Michelle about this internship, I could hear and feel the passion in her heart for the ministry, her family, and her relationship with Jesus. From that one phone call in my dorm room at Liberty University, I knew I wanted to work for her and her family because when someone cares that much, you just can’t help but follow suit. I’ll be honest, I truly had no idea what she really did for a living when we talked, but with as much energy and passion as she exuded over the phone, I wanted to know more. I’ve seen Michelle and the team behind-the-scenes, which I wish you all had the opportunity to witness. They work extremely hard to serve the community of [...]

Building and maintaining a website that converts clients into sales can be puzzling. With so many options, it’s easy to become overwhelmed and not do anything at all. You may understand what you are trying to sell, but is it easy enough to understand to someone who knows nothing about what you do or what you sell? Before spending money on ads to bring more traffic to your site, make sure your site is prepared to welcome visitors! When done well, your website can be as beneficial (if not more) as hiring a full-time employee! Here are three quick changes to convert more clients into sales: 1.) BOLD STATEMENT & RESOLUTION Your website needs to very quickly communicate how you can offer help to your customer. If they didn’t need/want something, they wouldn’t be on your website to begin with, right? The first goal is to identify the problem/need your customer has, and then show them how your business can help them find the solution. Make your customer feel like you are talking directly to them and no one else. If the customer inserted their name or business into the statement, could they identify with what you have to offer?

What Does Prayer Mean to You as a Mom?

When my husband Andy and I were newlyweds, our prayers sounded very different from one another. We were raised in different denominations, and although we were both Christ-followers, our prayers sounded very different. I was casual in my approach; a conversation, rather. More of a “Hey, God. What’s up?!” Andy was more formal; “Thee” and “Thou”, constantly reminding God who He was by {all} His names. I viewed God as more of a father figure, and because of my relationship with my own earthly father, I had a casual dialogue. Andy viewed God in the “Creator of the Universe” sense and showed signs of deep respect, reverence, and awe. Neither was right – and neither was wrong. Our prayers were simply different. As we shared the discipline of prayer with one another, we grew to have more of a common voice and tone. Sometimes our prayers would be in desperation, other times joyous praise. We would hold hands, bow our heads, or hit our knees. There were times we would lift our hands and sing scripture laced songs back to Him. Other times we were filled with so much grief and sorrow that we rested in the comfort of the [...]
