    GOD KNOWS MY EVERY NEED

    I run a small pet grooming business. Sometimes, it's difficult to compete against huge corporations, but somehow God provides for me in the most intimate of ways. I still have concerns about the business, but even when I'm not sure He's looking, He lets me know He sees me. The other day I experienced a mini-miracle. One of my employees, who has become a good friend and has been working with me for nearly six years, decided to put in his two-weeks notice. I felt very discouraged but within the hour, my shop phone was ringing and a new groomer… Read More

    HEARING GOD’S QUIET VOICE

    I was an electrician for the first part of my career but in 2000, I injured my back and had to undergo major surgery. The surgeon told me I would need to find a new line of work. You have a lot of time to think when you're laying in a hospital bed and I started praying about what God wanted me to do now that I had to make a career change. It's amazing how you can "hear" God when you are quiet. He spoke to me, saying I needed to minister to people in hospitals. There was a… Read More

    LIVING OUT MY FAITH AT WORK

    I own a nail salon. In my line of business, customer service is key. I decided to open my own business so I could offer a smile and a listening ear to my clients. Often when people come to the salon, they've had a long day, are in a hurry, and are trying to treat themselves. They use this place as an escape. I am a Christian, and I want others to see that through my work. I have an opportunity to share my faith each day. I work six days a week and have chosen to be closed on… Read More

    HELPING THOSE CREATED FOR HIS GLORY

    It is intriguing how the Lord will use one person or event to change the course of our lives. A year and a half ago, I heard Joni Erickson Tada speak at church. After listening to her, my daughter and I volunteered as camp counselors at the Joni and Friends Family Retreat. I was so moved that I now volunteer in our church's ministry that serves people and families who are touched by disability. But I also learned about a ministry called Unless U, which serves adults with developmental disabilities and their families through continuing education and by promoting life… Read More

    DANCING WITH THESE AMAZING KIDS

    Dance has always been my biggest passion. I started dancing at age two, grew up attending dance intensives and conferences, and was on dance team at a Division 1 school. After college, I started praying for opportunities to use my passion for dance to help others, and almost immediately, people came into my life that led me to opportunities to teach at various non-profits. In my free time, I now teach special needs dance classes. Seeing the joy on the children's faces has been a blessing, and I truly enjoy the time I get to spend with my students. I… Read More

    NOT HELD BACK BY MY LIMITED SKILLS

    I'm not a builder. I don't know much about hammers, screw drivers or other tools. But when my company was putting together a group of volunteers to help clean and build with Habitat for Humanity, I felt that was something I could do. I certainly could clean out flower beds, cut shrubs, and with some instruction, may even be able to use a hammer. The point was, I wanted to be used by the Lord to show others who He is. People who have fallen on tough times--emotionally, spiritually, financially, physically--they need someone to invest in them. Meeting them where… Read More
