When to say NO to good opportunities…

By |September 16th, 2014|Categories: Coaching, Her Voice, Leadership, Purpose|Tags: , , , , , , |2 Comments

This weekend, I hosted my team for an annual planning retreat at my house. In addition to the preparation and planning for this leadership retreat and my normal ministry responsibilities, I was in the middle of a bathroom remodel, a master’s thesis, and training for a half marathon…not to mention the normal routine of family life.

In one of my favorite books on Sabbath, Wayne Muller writes: “Sabbath requires surrender. If we only stop when we are finished with all our work, we will never stop, because our work is never completely done. With every accomplishment there arises a new responsibility...

The views, the adrenaline rush, the challenge. For me, my motivation for signing up to climb Mt Adam’s with the Gonzaga University’s Leadership and Hardiness class was based on [...]

By |July 28th, 2014|Categories: Coaching, Leadership|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” ― Benjamin Franklin There is more to being a great mentor than talking about your work over coffee. A great mentor knows that words alone do not create purpose driven action. A great mentor does more than teach, they live life beside their mentee. In The Making of a Mentor, Alicia Britt Chole calls this: “Living shoulder to shoulder.” Jesus was the number one example [...]
