5 Fat Files–What would you like to be known for?

One of my favorite concepts taught by Elizabeth George is having 5 fat files. You’re probably wondering what that means. We can’t do everything, even though we often try or think we can.  Sometimes we spread ourselves pretty thin, say yes to everything, do things that are outside of our gifting or calling, volunteer to help with everything, don’t say no, feel like if there’s a need we will be the only one who will fill it……you get the picture. {Read More}

W.A.I.T.—Why Am I Talking?

Have you ever said something and later wished that you hadn’t?  Or maybe just talked too much? In coaching we’re taught that we should not be talking more than about 20% of the time.  It’s not about giving advice and our opinions.  It’s about helping people to discern what God would have them to do and drawing it out of them. There’s a nice little acronym to help us remember that:  W.A.I.T.  —  Why Am I Talking? I thought about {Read More}

Where are you going and how do you get there?

What is it that you are trying to accomplish?  This {Read More}

Your Calling Journey

Do you know what your calling in life is? Could you state it right now from memory in just a phrase or sentence? Many people think that their “calling” is a one-time event in which they will be given a special life assignment by God and then should be able to run right out and immediately do it.
