Finding Your Life Purpose
Why are you here? What is your life purpose? This is a blog with a Christian theme so you could simply answer that you're here to worship God, or to be a light that shines in darkness, or to live for Jesus. Maybe you'll answer that your purpose is to do the will of God. The problem is those are all "routine" answers. The big question is HOW you personally will do that.

And your life is ...
Kingdom Business is Calling
You have a calling from God. You may not have realized it yet or accepted it, but you're called to something great. God is thinking about you. And He has a plan for you. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 I've struggled with this for a long time. As you may or may not know, I've been an ordained minister for 16 years. I went to Bible college for over two years although I never graduated (that is ...
Why Blog About Christian Business?
Why a blog about Christian business? Good question...I'm glad you asked. In fact, I've asked myself that same question for more than a year now. Yes, it's been in the back of my mind. I've been thinking about it. I even ran some tests to see what interest there was in this subject. [caption id="attachment_64" align="alignright" width="300" caption="It Says In God We Trust - But Do We?"][/caption]Sadly...the initial indications weren't good. It seemed like people advertising for keywords like "christian business" were simply selling hyped up business opportunities which promised to make their users thousands ...
Have you ever heard the expression, “Wait on God?” Sure, there are times for waiting on God, but that cliche is so misused that it ruins millions of dreams for Christians. Most people need to QUIT WAITING and get moving! For example, I have a friend who has the dream of owning a ranch to help children. Yet, she does nothing to move toward her goal. She is just “waiting” for... [Read more]
You’ve probably made some big mistakes in your life. You could have even had a few major doozies where you can’t even figure out how you messed up so badly. We’ve all made mistakes. We’ve all had failures. And we’ve all sinned. So join the club with the rest of us. You can’t allow your past to hold your future hostage. For example, some people have trouble understanding God’s forgiveness... [Read more]
It takes faith to run a business. There I said it. If your goal is to be a Christian entrepreneur, then you’re going to have to live a life of faith to go with it. Why? Because you don’t see an immediate return on most of the actions you take. It’s not an easy trade of time for dollars. If you’re working a job and you work for 40 hours, then you’re paid for 40 hours... [Read more]
Let’s talk a little about Christian business ethics. Remember, really there is no such thing as a Christian business. There are simply Christians who are in business. They work for a business. They run the business. Or they’re building the business. And we sometimes have to make tough choices in our businesses. As Christians, we rely on the Bible first to guide us, but it doesn’t always give... [Read more]
It’s not a secret. Back before I started my internet business I was in serious debt. It was like under the barrel, with the barrel on top of me, drowning in debt. Once I got behind on paying all the credit card payments, the collections companies started calling. I grew to hate the phone. They made threats. They broke laws. They even found my father’s number one time and called him telling... [Read more]
