How to Make an Impact for Jesus at Your Kids School

By |2022-05-23T20:52:22-04:00May 24th, 2022|Uncategorized|

I grew up largely in a Christian bubble. Most of my childhood and even teenage years were spent almost exclusively around other believers. In many ways, I’m incredibly thankful for that. The other part of me knows that that’s not what Jesus calls us to. He doesn’t call us to stay comfortable, and be surrounded by other believers all the time. Yes, community is very important. But being around people who are not like us - people who think differently, look differently and even act differently - is important. It’s important for us to grow our own faith but it’s also an awesome way for us to be a Light in this dark world. If you have school-aged kids, you have an incredible opportunity and responsibility to make an impact for Jesus in your kids’ school. In some situations, you won’t be able to be as open, but all of us can, and should, be intentional about being the hands and feet of Jesus. And our kids’ schools is an awesome place for that. My oldest is in elementary school and she is at a public school for the first time. The beginning of the year was a strange [...]

Why We’re Ending 2020 with a Social Media Sabbatical

By |2020-12-17T10:37:13-05:00December 17th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Unpopular opinion #1: The social media algorithm is NOT in control of growing and sustaining your work. God is. Not being able to take a break from something -- when God intentionally designed you to need breaks -- isn't being a good steward of your work. It's called addiction. It's called false control. It's called believing in something man-made more than you trust God to build and sustain what is His. Unpopular opinion #2: In a "social" setting, listening is required for ministry --  not just speaking. Most "best practice" business trainings will teach you that even if you're planning to unplug, you should still post to keep your content in front of your "audience" and to please the algorithm. Here's the problem with that if you work with a ministry mindset: This mindset elevates your importance way too much. This mindset will have you in a tailspin, heading straight for ego inflation. If we view ourselves as ministers on God's behalf, we know that if God needs to get His message to His people, He can use rocks (Luke 19:40). And the purpose for social media is right there in the name: a medium for conversation. And a [...]

Assume They’re in the Room

By |2020-11-18T16:24:25-05:00November 18th, 2020|Uncategorized|

As believers, it's our responsibility to never be so out of touch with the world that we neglect the people who don't know Jesus yet or don't understand how following Christ transforms our worldview. So if you want to be a light in the darkness, you have to be okay walking into a room that is dark, and even more, you have to be aware of the hearts that are in that room so that you can lovingly speak the Truth without accidentally forcing your own point of view that might cause more harm than good. Division is a disease that will destroy but unity among believers is the cure. And that's what class was all about the week. One of our favorite parts of the Assume They're In The Room class was Somer's reminder that as Christians we have to be "In it, not of it," and what that practically looks like for us in our everyday life, our workplaces, and even our churches. . Want to hear more on this topic? Join she works His way today and get instant access to the full class + a community of working women like you to link arms [...]

Businesses That Make Us Grateful: 2nd Edition

By |2020-12-17T10:42:04-05:00November 17th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Getting after grateful by sharing 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 and serve you on the regular, so this is our way of saying THANK YOU to each of you for what you do! (Check them out - you may find something that would be helpful in your work too!) #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: DropBox What they say: These days, everything is smart—your phone, your credit card, your car, maybe even your house. [...]
