Have you ever questioned whether your work is actually doing something to further your faith or that of others?  We traditionally think that the spreading of our faith is only for missionaries or those in full time ministry, but what if regardless of what you do, you have a responsibility to lead with faith.


In this episode, I sit down with Jon Hart of Praxis and we dive into how to find the demands that are put out there by different businesses, and how we can meet those needs with expertise and skills. We also dive into the refinement of our skills both on the job and off the job, and contributing in ways that are often outside the box.   We also talk about how our creativity in coming up with solutions matters so that we can make meaningful contributions to areas that are important to us.

We want to creatively restore what’s been broken through sacrifice.” -Jon Hart @PraxisLabs @KirbyOGreen #SharpenPodcast
