10 Businesses that Make Us Grateful

By |2019-11-08T09:07:35-05:00November 8th, 2019|Uncategorized|

We are getting into the Thanksgiving spirit early by sharing with you ten of the businesses whose products and services enable some of the main functionality features of the swHw ministry.  What they do allows us to connect with each of you on the regular -- so we are grateful! You might find a few you could benefit from using as well, so here we go! #1: Basecamp What they say: Basecamp is more than just a project management tool — it’s an elevated way to work. Teams that switch to Basecamp become better teams. They’re more productive and better organized. They communicate better and require fewer meetings. And they’re far more efficient than before. Being better is a choice — choose Basecamp. What we say: Our team uses Basecamp daily. We have all of our months broken down into different projects with to do lists, docs/files, message boards, and group chats. You can set work hours so you don't receive notifications during family time or when you aren't working. This has been a game changer for us as a team! #2: Canva What they say: Design anything. Publish anywhere. Use Canva’s drag-and-drop feature and professional layouts to design consistently stunning graphics. Design presentations, social [...]

By |2019-09-30T14:19:12-04:00October 4th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Alright, I know it’s October, and everyone usually waits until January to talk goal-setting… But here’s the deal: You know the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day basically moves at warp speed… so why wouldn’t you start thinking about your 2020 goals before the craziness hits? We’ve put together a full swHw Goal Setting Guide just for you, and it’s available NOW! (Members, you’ll find it inside the member portal!) Our guide contains four sections for you: Before You Set the Goal Set the Right Goal If You Miss the Goal If You Make the Goal (We recommend reviewing all four and not skipping steps – trust the process!) Want a sneak peek of what you’ll find inside the guide?  You got it! Here are eight questions you should ask to evaluate the effectiveness of the goals you set: 1. Do my goals complement my priorities and values? 2. Do my goals compete with one another or build on one another? 3. Are my goals specific? 4. Is my effort required to achieve these goals? 5. Who have I told, and who is praying with me about my goals? 6. [...]

Heart for Community

By |2019-09-23T21:56:47-04:00September 27th, 2019|Uncategorized|

swHw Local Leaders…coming to a city near you in 2020! Community: it’s a command for Christ-followers. It’s not a suggestion. It’s not a perk when it’s convenient. To live in community is to do life the way God calls us to do it, and not to mention, it’s the way Jesus lived Himself. We don’t take lightly the responsibility of calling she works HIS way a “community.” So in every season, we don’t just evaluate the content that’s provided here, but we also evaluate how we’re doing on creating and cultivating community here.  A little backstory of how swHw started: This ministry began with four women (Michelle Myers, Somer Phoebus, Emily Copeland + Liz Patton) asking one another hard questions and sharing truths of what God was showing us in our walks with Him, our homes, and our work. Confession: those early morning accountability meetings did not initially include plans and dreams of starting a ministry -- but the more we benefited from meeting together, the more we felt God calling us to invite others to join us. Over the last 5+ years, it has been such a joy to watch God move in the hearts, homes, and careers of thousands of [...]

Prayer for Narrow

By |2019-09-06T07:29:58-04:00September 6th, 2019|Uncategorized|

Oswald Chambers put it this way: “We often pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all.” So as Narrow prep is in full swing, the priority of prayer is right there with it! If you’re joining us (or considering joining us!) for this year’s Narrow conference, this blog highlights how we’re praying for you + how you can pray for us leading up to, during, and after October 11-12. We are expectant for how God will move - let’s go to Him together! We’ve created a simple reminder to pray for Narrow in the form of a bookmark. We’d love for you to print it out (it’s front and back, so download it and then on the print settings, choose “shrink oversized pages” and print!) Download the bookmark! Week 1: Ask God to… Prepare Hearts Monday: Forgive our sins Tuesday: Quiet our flesh Wednesday: Focus our eyes Thursday: Center our attention Friday: Open our ears Saturday: Fix our posture Sunday: Thank God for what He is doing and what He will do in hearts. Week 2: Ask God to… Overcome obstacles Monday: Family Tuesday: Financial Wednesday: [...]
