116 – Joy in Serving with Courtney Boyd

Pastors’ wives, I bet we can all quote Mark 10:43-44, “. . . whoever wants to become great among you will be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you will be a slave to all”. Serving is what we are called to do. We all know it. We all do it. But do we serve with joy? On today’s episode, I’m chatting with Courtney Boyd about joy in serving. She has some encouragement for you today about what joy is, how you can experience joy in ministry, and how you can continue to serve in joy.

114: Having A Mary Heart For God’s Vision

Happy New Year! Do you have a vision for 2022? I know God has a vision for you. Maybe He’s dropped something into your spirit that seems overwhelming or impossible. We can learn a lot from Mary on how to respond when God calls you to something new.

Luke 1:26-38 records the conversation between Mary and the angel Gabriel. I don’t know about you, but I want to have the same heart towards my calling as Mary.

She was open to hear from God. She was quick to ask questions when she didn’t understand. She listened to what God had to say. She surrendered her plans so she she could surrender to His. She submitted to His calling even when it seemed huge and didn’t make sense. She trusted that God knew what He was doing and went with it.

And of course, because of Mary’s heart, she became part of the greatest rescue story the world will ever know.

God is no different today. He has a plan for YOU to be part of His story too.

113: Cultivating Gratitude in Ministry with Stevie Ciske

November is typically a month where gratitude is in focus, but sometimes it’s hard to be grateful in ministry. In this episode, Stevie Ciske and I chat about how to cultivate gratitude in ministry. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in everything: for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Stevie points out that to not give thanks in everything is to be out of God’s will. (#gutpunch) But what does that really look like? Listen in as we discuss this topic that is clearly important for us to understand!
