    #101: Lauren Ammon: Called to Serve Athletes

    Season five kicks off with Lauren Ammon, a growth mindset coach for athletes. Lauren is a former endurance swimmer who, after 17 years in the pool feeling most like herself, to 17 years out of the pool, and having no idea who she was, finally found her calling serving athletes. The transition from athlete to mindset coach makes for compelling listening — get lost in the rhythm of swimming, competitive training, pattern breaks, and training your mind, like you train your body. Deep dives in this episode include; Coaching moment – blindsided by suspension 1:20 Coaching moment – endurance swimming, knowing what buttons to push 4:50 Sliding Doors – someone who doesn't want to fix us, called to serve athletes 7:46 What makes a great coach? 12:33 What's behind your why? 14:30 How did you get started in swimming? Lost in the rhythm of swimming. 18:52 Perfectionism 24:29 Flipside on being a coach 27:17 Identity: ‘17years in the pool, feeling most like myself, 17years out of the pool, had no idea who I was.' 30:22 Hybrid office: less and better, laser focused on priorities 35:30 Mental Demons: pattern interrupt by saying things out loud 40:00 Words of Wisdom: train your mind, like you train your body 44:51 At the age of 5, Lauren was literally thrown into a pool so she would have something to do at her sisters' swim meets. 17 years later, with a high school state championship and a top 3 finish in the Mid-American Conference, she said goodbye to a successful swimming career. This foundation as a student athlete set the tone for high achievement in the professional world. After 13 years in HR, Lauren received her professional coaching certification from the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) to feed her passion for supporting others in reaching their full potential. She started her business focused on leadership development and career advancement, but while watching the 2020 Olympic games it all changed. As she watched Simon Biles remove herself from competition and Katie Ledecky do everything in her power to hide her disappointment following a lackluster race, she knew who she was called to serve. Athletes. It was validated when Michael Phelps told the world, "Competition is overwhelming. We just want someone to listen to us. Someone to support us mentally through the pressure-filled moments and who doesn't want to fix us." Lauren specializes in working with student athletes to master the mental part of the game. Her company, Performance Reimagined, exists to show athletes there is an outlet to be heard, seen, and supported, mentally and emotionally, at the same level they are physically.

    July is upon us, 30 days of JING has begun, and we have well and truly fallen into cooler temperatures that call for nourishment, replenishment, and slowing down. Today on the podcast, we're reminding you of all things warming, tonifying, and delicious to replenish you in these cooler months with wellness coach and Qi Food Therapist Kimberly Ashton. We love having Kimberly on for our seasonal Five Element food podcasts- she reminds us to eat local, eat for the season, and above all, eat intuitively. Within the Five Element philosophy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is an understanding that the more we rest in Winter, the more harvest we can expect in Late Summer. Understanding this critical element of Water/Winter time helps us surrender more willingly into hibernation and doing-less mode. Just as nature withdraws to compound its reserves for the warmer months, so should we.  In this episode, Kimberly takes us on a journey through the flavours, foods, and cooking styles of the Water Element, explaining the philosophy behind eating and preparing food specifically for this season. Think salty flavours, Yin nourishment, and slow-cooked casseroles that leave you feeling satiated and warm. As always, Kimberly inspires us to localise our minds when buying produce, forage where possible, and eat intuitively- even if it means breaking the rules. Tune in and make sure you scroll down for Kimberly's deliciously warming black sesame superfood latte recipe.    Kimberly and Mason discuss: -Yin foods for Winter. -Winter shopping list. -Cooking styles for Winter. -Winter foods and flavours. -Supporting local produce. -The truth about soya foods.  -Foods that nourish the Kidneys. -Wild foraging Water Element foods. -How to eat if you have a Yin deficiency. -Why we don't eat the same foods all year round. -Traditional Chinese Medicine Five Element philosophy.   Kimberly's black sesame superfood latte recipe  Ingredients: -1 cup soy milk, cashew, or oat milk -1 teaspoon black sesame powder -1/2 teaspoon black tahini -1/2 teaspoon walnuts/hemp seeds (blended into powder)- optional -1 teaspoon coconut sugar/brown rice syrup or sweetener of choice -1/4 teaspoon SuperFeast JING tonic herb- optional -1/4 teaspoon Mason's Mushrooms tonic herb- optional -2 Jujube dates, to enjoy on the side    Method: -Add milk to a small pot with the black sesame powder and black tahini -Bring to a boil and then simmer -Add the sugar/sweetener, stir  -Add the walnut/hemp seed powder, stir -Turn off the heat and add the SuperFeast tonic herbs, stir well -Serve with the Jujube dates for a delicious morning or afternoon tea snack (alternatively you warm the milk and blend ALL the ingredients with the milk in a blender, including the Jujube dates- just remove the piths first).   Winter Kindney nourishing shopping list Salty condiments, good quality sea salt, tamari or soya sauce, miso, olives, capers, sea vegetables, jujube dates, Medjool dates, blackberries, black beans, black lentils, kidney beans, black sesame, black tahini, lamb, beef, beetroot, seafood, walnuts, mushrooms, seaweeds, dark kale, black rice, buckwheat.   Resource guide   Kimberly's website Kimberly's instagram Five Seasons TCM Kimberly's Element E-Book Five Elements and Cycles E-Course Tonics: Tremella Cordyceps JING blend Relevant Podcasts:  How To Eat In Spring with Kimberly Ashton (EP#133) Eating For Vitality in Summer with Kimberly Ashton (EP#147) How To Eat In Spleen Season with Kimberly Ashton (EP#151)   Check Out The Transcript Here: https://www.superfeast.com.au/blogs/articles/ep-168-winter-podcast-kimberly-ashton

    As we reflect on the celebration of American independence on July 4th this year, it can be a good opportunity for us as believers to remember our utter dependence on the Lord. For, while we are certainly free in the deepest sense of the word, we are also called to use that freedom to serve God and others.

    Proper 9 First Psalm: Psalms 1–3 Psalms 1–3 (Listen) Book One The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked 1   Blessed is the man1    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,  nor stands in the way of sinners,    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;2   but his delight is in the law2 of the LORD,    and on his law he meditates day and night. 3   He is like a tree    planted by streams of water  that yields its fruit in its season,    and its leaf does not wither.  In all that he does, he prospers.4   The wicked are not so,    but are like chaff that the wind drives away. 5   Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,    nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous;6   for the LORD knows the way of the righteous,    but the way of the wicked will perish. The Reign of the Lord's Anointed 2   Why do the nations rage3    and the peoples plot in vain?2   The kings of the earth set themselves,    and the rulers take counsel together,    against the LORD and against his Anointed, saying,3   “Let us burst their bonds apart    and cast away their cords from us.” 4   He who sits in the heavens laughs;    the Lord holds them in derision.5   Then he will speak to them in his wrath,    and terrify them in his fury, saying,6   “As for me, I have set my King    on Zion, my holy hill.” 7   I will tell of the decree:  The LORD said to me, “You are my Son;    today I have begotten you.8   Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage,    and the ends of the earth your possession.9   You shall break4 them with a rod of iron    and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.” 10   Now therefore, O kings, be wise;    be warned, O rulers of the earth.11   Serve the LORD with fear,    and rejoice with trembling.12   Kiss the Son,    lest he be angry, and you perish in the way,    for his wrath is quickly kindled.  Blessed are all who take refuge in him. Save Me, O My God A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. 3   O LORD, how many are my foes!    Many are rising against me;2   many are saying of my soul,    “There is no salvation for him in God.” Selah5 3   But you, O LORD, are a shield about me,    my glory, and the lifter of my head.4   I cried aloud to the LORD,    and he answered me from his holy hill. Selah 5   I lay down and slept;    I woke again, for the LORD sustained me.6   I will not be afraid of many thousands of people    who have set themselves against me all around. 7   Arise, O LORD!    Save me, O my God!  For you strike all my enemies on the cheek;    you break the teeth of the wicked. 8   Salvation belongs to the LORD;    your blessing be on your people! Selah Footnotes [1] 1:1 The singular Hebrew word for man (ish) is used here to portray a representative example of a godly person; see Preface [2] 1:2 Or instruction [3] 2:1 Or nations noisily assemble [4] 2:9 Revocalization yields (compare Septuagint) You shall rule [5] 3:2 The meaning of the Hebrew word Selah, used frequently in the Psalms, is uncertain. It may be a musical or liturgical direction (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalm 4; Psalm 7 Psalm 4 (Listen) Answer Me When I Call To the choirmaster: with stringed instruments. A Psalm of David. 4   Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!    You have given me relief when I was in distress.    Be gracious to me and hear my prayer! 2   O men,1 how long shall my honor be turned into shame?    How long will you love vain words and seek after lies? Selah3   But know that the LORD has set apart the godly for himself;    the LORD hears when I call to him. 4   Be angry,2 and do not sin;    ponder in your own hearts on your beds, and be silent. Selah5   Offer right sacrifices,    and put your trust in the LORD. 6   There are many who say, “Who will show us some good?    Lift up the light of your face upon us, O LORD!”7   You have put more joy in my heart    than they have when their grain and wine abound. 8   In peace I will both lie down and sleep;    for you alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety. Footnotes [1] 4:2 Or O men of rank [2] 4:4 Or Be agitated (ESV) Psalm 7 (Listen) In You Do I Take Refuge A Shiggaion1 of David, which he sang to the LORD concerning the words of Cush, a Benjaminite. 7   O LORD my God, in you do I take refuge;    save me from all my pursuers and deliver me,2   lest like a lion they tear my soul apart,    rending it in pieces, with none to deliver. 3   O LORD my God, if I have done this,    if there is wrong in my hands,4   if I have repaid my friend2 with evil    or plundered my enemy without cause,5   let the enemy pursue my soul and overtake it,    and let him trample my life to the ground    and lay my glory in the dust. Selah 6   Arise, O LORD, in your anger;    lift yourself up against the fury of my enemies;    awake for me; you have appointed a judgment.7   Let the assembly of the peoples be gathered about you;    over it return on high. 8   The LORD judges the peoples;    judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness    and according to the integrity that is in me.9   Oh, let the evil of the wicked come to an end,    and may you establish the righteous—  you who test the minds and hearts,3    O righteous God!10   My shield is with God,    who saves the upright in heart.11   God is a righteous judge,    and a God who feels indignation every day. 12   If a man4 does not repent, God5 will whet his sword;    he has bent and readied his bow;13   he has prepared for him his deadly weapons,    making his arrows fiery shafts.14   Behold, the wicked man conceives evil    and is pregnant with mischief    and gives birth to lies.15   He makes a pit, digging it out,    and falls into the hole that he has made.16   His mischief returns upon his own head,    and on his own skull his violence descends. 17   I will give to the LORD the thanks due to his righteousness,    and I will sing praise to the name of the LORD, the Most High.

And they saw the land of Jazer and the land of Gilead, and behold, the place was a place for livestock. 2 So the people of Gad and the people of Reuben came and said to Moses and to Eleazar the priest and to the chiefs of the congregation, 3 “Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo, and Beon, 4 the land that the LORD struck down before the congregation of Israel, is a land for livestock, and your servants have livestock.” 5 And they said, “If we have found favor in your sight, let this land be given to your servants for a possession. Do not take us across the Jordan.” 6 But Moses said to the people of Gad and to the people of Reuben, “Shall your brothers go to the war while you sit here? (ESV) Numbers 32:16–27 (Listen) 16 Then they came near to him and said, “We will build sheepfolds here for our livestock, and cities for our little ones, 17 but we will take up arms, ready to go before the people of Israel, until we have brought them to their place. And our little ones shall live in the fortified cities because of the inhabitants of the land. 18 We will not return to our homes until each of the people of Israel has gained his inheritance. 19 For we will not inherit with them on the other side of the Jordan and beyond, because our inheritance has come to us on this side of the Jordan to the east.” 20 So Moses said to them, “If you will do this, if you will take up arms to go before the LORD for the war, 21 and every armed man of you will pass over the Jordan before the LORD, until he has driven out his enemies from before him 22 and the land is subdued before the LORD; then after that you shall return and be free of obligation to the LORD and to Israel, and this land shall be your possession before the LORD. 23 But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against the LORD, and be sure your sin will find you out. 24 Build cities for your little ones and folds for your sheep, and do what you have promised.” 25 And the people of Gad and the people of Reuben said to Moses, “Your servants will do as my lord commands. 26 Our little ones, our wives, our livestock, and all our cattle shall remain there in the cities of Gilead, 27 but your servants will pass over, every man who is armed for war, before the LORD to battle, as my lord orders.” (ESV) New Testament: Romans 8:26–30 Romans 8:26–30 (Listen) 26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because1 the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good,2 for those who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. Footnotes [1] 8:27 Or that [2] 8:28 Some manuscripts God works all things together for good, or God works in all things for the good (ESV) Gospel: Matthew 23:1–12 Matthew 23:1–12 (Listen) Seven Woes to the Scribes and Pharisees 23 Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples, 2 “The scribes and the Pharisees sit on Moses' seat, 3 so do and observe whatever they tell you, but not the works they do. For they preach, but do not practice. 4 They tie up heavy burdens, hard to bear,1 and lay them on people's shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to move them with their finger. 5 They do all their deeds to be seen by others. For they make their phylacteries broad and their fringes long, 6 and they love the place of honor at feasts and the best seats in the synagogues 7 and greetings in the marketplaces and being called rabbi2 by others. 8 But you are not to be called rabbi, for you have one teacher, and you are all brothers.3 9 And call no man your father on earth, for you have one Father, who is in heaven. 10 Neither be called instructors, for you have one instructor, the Christ. 11 The greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Footnotes [1] 23:4 Some manuscripts omit hard to bear [2] 23:7 Rabbi means my teacher, or my master; also verse 8 [3] 23:8 Or brothers and sisters (ESV)

A big part of building a business on our own terms is a willingness to test out what the next step of leverage could look like, even if it looks different to the “industry standard”.    Guest Info   Chris Bowers is a Realtor®️, Investor and owner of the Bowers Team, and the host of The agentXcel podcast.

They lived there in the king's service. Descendants of Simeon 24 The sons of Simeon: Nemuel, Jamin, Jarib, Zerah, Shaul; 25 Shallum was his son, Mibsam his son, Mishma his son. 26 The sons of Mishma: Hammuel his son, Zaccur his son, Shimei his son. 27 Shimei had sixteen sons and six daughters; but his brothers did not have many children, nor did all their clan multiply like the men of Judah. 28 They lived in Beersheba, Moladah, Hazar-shual, 29 Bilhah, Ezem, Tolad, 30 Bethuel, Hormah, Ziklag, 31 Beth-marcaboth, Hazar-susim, Beth-biri, and Shaaraim.

Footnotes [1] 2:1 Or nations noisily assemble [2] 2:9 Revocalization yields (compare Septuagint) You shall rule (ESV) New Testament: Matthew 3–4 Matthew 3–4 (Listen) John the Baptist Prepares the Way 3 In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, 2 “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”1 3 For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said,   “The voice of one crying in the wilderness:  ‘Prepare2 the way of the Lord;    make his paths straight.'” 4 Now John wore a garment of camel's hair and a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5 Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to him, 6 and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. 7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism, he said to them, “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bear fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not presume to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father,' for I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham. 10 Even now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 11 “I baptize you with water for repentance, but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor and gather his wheat into the barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.” The Baptism of Jesus 13 Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. 14 John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” 15 But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. 16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him,3 and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son,4 with whom I am well pleased.” The Temptation of Jesus 4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” 4 But he answered, “It is written,   “‘Man shall not live by bread alone,    but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” 5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written,   “‘He will command his angels concerning you,' and   “‘On their hands they will bear you up,    lest you strike your foot against a stone.'” 7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'” 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” 10 Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written,   “‘You shall worship the Lord your God    and him only shall you serve.'” 11 Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him. Jesus Begins His Ministry 12 Now when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth he went and lived in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: 15   “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,    the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—16   the people dwelling in darkness    have seen a great light,  and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,    on them a light has dawned.” 17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”5 Jesus Calls the First Disciples 18 While walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon (who is called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.”6 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him. 21 And going on from there he saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in the boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and he called them. 22 Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him. Jesus Ministers to Great Crowds 23 And he went throughout all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction among the people. 24 So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought him all the sick, those afflicted with various diseases and pains, those oppressed by demons, those having seizures, and paralytics, and he healed them. 25 And great crowds followed him from Galilee and the Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.

And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? 3 Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! 4 So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? 5 I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, 6 but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers? 7 To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 But you yourselves wrong and defraud—even your own brothers!1 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous2 will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,3 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. Flee Sexual Immorality 12 “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything. 13 “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined4 to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin5 a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

The Lord Reigns 97   The LORD reigns, let the earth rejoice;    let the many coastlands be glad!2   Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.3   Fire goes before him    and burns up his adversaries all around.4   His lightnings light up the world;    the earth sees and trembles.5   The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,    before the Lord of all the earth. 6   The heavens proclaim his righteousness,    and all the peoples see his glory.7   All worshipers of images are put to shame,    who make their boast in worthless idols;    worship him, all you gods! 8   Zion hears and is glad,    and the daughters of Judah rejoice,    because of your judgments, O LORD.9   For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth;    you are exalted far above all gods. 10   O you who love the LORD, hate evil!    He preserves the lives of his saints;    he delivers them from the hand of the wicked.11   Light is sown2 for the righteous,    and joy for the upright in heart.12   Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous,    and give thanks to his holy name! Make a Joyful Noise to the Lord A Psalm. 98   Oh sing to the LORD a new song,    for he has done marvelous things!  His right hand and his holy arm    have worked salvation for him.2   The LORD has made known his salvation;    he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations.3   He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness    to the house of Israel.  All the ends of the earth have seen    the salvation of our God. 4   Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;    break forth into joyous song and sing praises!5   Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre,    with the lyre and the sound of melody!6   With trumpets and the sound of the horn    make a joyful noise before the King, the LORD! 7   Let the sea roar, and all that fills it;    the world and those who dwell in it!8   Let the rivers clap their hands;    let the hills sing for joy together9   before the LORD, for he comes    to judge the earth.  He will judge the world with righteousness,    and the peoples with equity. The Lord Our God Is Holy 99   The LORD reigns; let the peoples tremble!    He sits enthroned upon the cherubim; let the earth quake!2   The LORD is great in Zion;    he is exalted over all the peoples.3   Let them praise your great and awesome name!    Holy is he!4   The King in his might loves justice.3    You have established equity;  you have executed justice    and righteousness in Jacob.5   Exalt the LORD our God;    worship at his footstool!    Holy is he! 6   Moses and Aaron were among his priests,    Samuel also was among those who called upon his name.    They called to the LORD, and he answered them.7   In the pillar of the cloud he spoke to them;    they kept his testimonies    and the statute that he gave them. 8   O LORD our God, you answered them;    you were a forgiving God to them,    but an avenger of their wrongdoings.9   Exalt the LORD our God,    and worship at his holy mountain;    for the LORD our God is holy! His Steadfast Love Endures Forever A Psalm for giving thanks. 100   Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!2     Serve the LORD with gladness!    Come into his presence with singing! 3   Know that the LORD, he is God!    It is he who made us, and we are his;4    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4   Enter his gates with thanksgiving,    and his courts with praise!    Give thanks to him; bless his name! 5   For the LORD is good;    his steadfast love endures forever,    and his faithfulness to all generations. I Will Walk with Integrity A Psalm of David. 101   I will sing of steadfast love and justice;    to you, O LORD, I will make music.2   I will ponder the way that is blameless.    Oh when will you come to me?  I will walk with integrity of heart    within my house;3   I will not set before my eyes    anything that is worthless.  I hate the work of those who fall away;    it shall not cling to me.4   A perverse heart shall be far from me;    I will know nothing of evil. 5   Whoever slanders his neighbor secretly    I will destroy.  Whoever has a haughty look and an arrogant heart    I will not endure. 6   I will look with favor on the faithful in the land,    that they may dwell with me;  he who walks in the way that is blameless    shall minister to me. 7   No one who practices deceit    shall dwell in my house;  no one who utters lies    shall continue before my eyes. 8   Morning by morning I will destroy    all the wicked in the land,  cutting off all the evildoers    from the city of the LORD. Do Not Hide Your Face from Me A Prayer of one afflicted, when he is faint and pours out his complaint before the LORD. 102   Hear my prayer, O LORD;  let my cry come to you!2   Do not hide your face from me    in the day of my distress!  Incline your ear to me;    answer me speedily in the day when I call! 3   For my days pass away like smoke,    and my bones burn like a furnace.4   My heart is struck down like grass and has withered;    I forget to eat my bread.5   Because of my loud groaning    my bones cling to my flesh.6   I am like a desert owl of the wilderness,    like an owl5 of the waste places;7   I lie awake;    I am like a lonely sparrow on the housetop.8   All the day my enemies taunt me;    those who deride me use my name for a curse.9   For I eat ashes like bread    and mingle tears with my drink,10   because of your indignation and anger;    for you have taken me up and thrown me down.11   My days are like an evening shadow;    I wither away like grass. 12   But you, O LORD, are enthroned forever;    you are remembered throughout all generations.13   You will arise and have pity on Zion;    it is the time to favor her;    the appointed time has come.14   For your servants hold her stones dear    and have pity on her dust.15   Nations will fear the name of the LORD,    and all the kings of the earth will fear your glory.16   For the LORD builds up Zion;    he appears in his glory;17   he regards the prayer of the destitute    and does not despise their prayer. 18   Let this be recorded for a generation to come,    so that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD:19   that he looked down from his holy height;    from heaven the LORD looked at the earth,20   to hear the groans of the prisoners,    to set free those who were doomed to die,21   that they may declare in Zion the name of the LORD,    and in Jerusalem his praise,22   when peoples gather together,    and kingdoms, to worship the LORD. 23   He has broken my strength in midcourse;    he has shortened my days.24   “O my God,” I say, “take me not away    in the midst of my days—  you whose years endure    throughout all generations!” 25   Of old you laid the foundation of the earth,    and the heavens are the work of your hands.26   They will perish, but you will remain;    they will all wear out like a garment.  You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away,27     but you are the same, and your years have no end.28   The children of your servants shall dwell secure;    their offspring shall be established before you.

    "LUKE 10:1-11 REFLECTION" Kids Ministry Coffee Break 48: A life of a minister can be tricky. Jesus' instructions to the 72 disciples offers us great wisdom in discerning how we serve our people. I hope you have found some treasure in the passage we are focusing on this week. It's tough to know what to do with these passages at times because they are SO demanding and, seemingly, irrelevant to our own day and practice. But… Some context. For much of Luke's middle portion, Jesus is establishing the parameters for what it is to be a disciple. Jesus has begun the famous Lukan journey to Jerusalem—after the Transfiguration, he sets his sight on Jerusalem and the reminder to the reader that he is ultimately headed there is repeated again and again. Jesus has a task. Jesus is set on completing that task. Along the way he reveals part of the ultimate plan of creating a new Israel, by calling 12 disciples to match the 12 tribes of Israel. He then gives them a new set of instructions on the Sermon on the Plain. Then Jesus encounters religious leader after religious leader. Maybe Pharisees, maybe Bible experts (legal experts/scribes), and even Sadducees. He is always juxtaposing how the life of a disciple is different than the religious leaders they are used to looking up to. As Jesus sends the 72 out, he gives them instructions that are all about NOT benefiting from the work. They can receive a place to stay and food to eat, for a worker deserves their pay, BUT…they are not to be picky. Whoever receives them in a town, they are to stay there and eat the food they prepare. If a more affluent person with better lodging and food offers them a place to stay on day 2, they are NOT to take it. Jesus doesn't want them to be confused with the religious leaders of the day who often expected pay for their presence and work. The work is about offering peace and healing to those who will receive it. If they won't receive it, then move on. How often do we all get caught up in the benefits of our work? Yes, most of the time we shoulder great burdens in ministry, but there are always people who want to offer us benefits beyond the expected. Yes, some people will not receive your peace and healing…because you may not bring what they expected. Yes, we can sometimes be tempted to play games and reap bigger rewards and blessings for what we do. Ministry is tricky. It's wonderful…but it's tricky. Any time we work with people, things have the potential to get more complicated than they have to. Some days you may feel like a lamb among wolves… Others you may feel like a well-attended to disciple of Jesus Christ… No matter what you are feeling and experiencing today in your ministry, trust that you are working for the Kingdom of God which comes to us and through us to those whom we serve. What happens from there is hardly in our control…except how we choose to respond. If you are facing trial today, brush off your feet the unnecessary burdens you may feel drawn to carry due the issues others are trying to place upon you. If you are struggling to discern what issues are yours vs. theirs, seek out help from colleagues and mentors. If you are witnessing blessing today, revel in the joy of serving Christ…and know that this too shall pass. Be blessed my friends. Trust in Jesus and serve the Kingdom no matter what…because the harvest is bigger than we can imagine… and the workers are few. Message brought to you by Rev. Joseph Sanford of Sanford Curriculum (Student ministry resources available on The Sunday School Store written by he and Lauren Sanford). Music by The Muse Maker

    One of the things that I have been learning more about recently is the concept of dating and relationships. This topic has been so relevant to myself and in my friend circle as we are getting older and many of us are single or going through separations from long-term relationships. I have started to question the norms, or so-called societal pressures, that we often put on ourselves to have infinitely lasting relationships. I have come to realize that not every person is meant to stay in your life in the capacity that they are currently in your life forever. Just because a relationship ends does not mean we have failed in some way. My hope is that this episode gives you a sense of permission to really listen to your inner voice if you are doubting something or if you have been living in a place of complacency. Because you deserve all the happiness in the world, and while you may feel confused or lost at the end of a relationship, you will find yourself again. You will find a way to realign to your center and to get clarity on what is truly important to you and who you are. >>> Connect with me on IG https://www.instagram.com/makethatmoney.hunni/ (@makethatmoney.hunni) >>> Check out my https://www.sandrajoe.com/ (website): https://www.sandrajoe.com/ (https://www.sandrajoe.com/)

    Aligning your Sales Process to Serve You AND Your Clients

    Does selling your products or services make you feel frustrated? If you're regularly finding that the sales aspect of your business drains your energy, then this post is for you.    If sales is killing your vibe, then you're likely selling out of alignment.   In today's new post, I'm detailing out the process I use to sell high ticket offers that will help you realign your own sales technique to start selling from a place of service.    Read on to learn how your business can not only survive but truly THRIVE when you learn to sell from your heart. Because when you sell from a place of service, not only do you win, your clients win too.    If you're selling without serving, you're misaligned.    Here's something you may never hear me say again out of this context: Stop selling.    There. I said it.    But, Jen… my whole business is based on sales…   I hear you. You have to sell in order to stay in business. And I want you to make lots of sales. But - here's the caveat - I want those sales to come from your heart.    The reason I'm saying stop selling is because if you are currently selling without serving, then you are misaligned. And when you sell without service, sales often feel frustrating and draining. If you feel like you're just trying to get people to buy, it sucks the energy out of you. This is because, in all honesty, selling for the sake of selling alone is more manipulation than true selling.    Did you know that the word sell is actually an Icelandic word? It means to serve or to give. Isn't that interesting that the root of selling is service? That means that if you're selling from a place that's not of service, then you've got it all backwards.  Aligning your sales with your client's needs   The best way to sell from a place of service is to understand what your client needs.    What does your client need? And how aware are they of that need? And where does your solution fit into their current needs?    If you can best understand where they're at, what they need, what they're struggling with, and what would create pleasure, happiness, profit, or some other gain for them, then you can figure out where in your repertoire of skills you can make a match.    Do you offer something that can align with their needs? You should only begin selling or trying to make sales once you've identified that place where there's a match. Because if you're trying to sell from any other place, you are likely manipulating. When sales start to feel uncomfortable, it's because the sale isn't aligned. It's not an aligned match if you don't know what their needs are, or if you're not trying to solve or serve a specific need.    Selling with the intention to serve is a lot like piecing together a puzzle. You're looking to see where the holes are in your client's puzzle, and then you're offering appropriate solutions to fill those gaps.  Why it's not worth it to sell your client something they don't need   If while you're uncovering your client's needs, you realize that your services aren't the right fit to complete their puzzle, don't freak out and try to sell them something they don't need.    The worst thing that could happen is you sell them on it, then you've got to work to service it. Convincing someone to buy something they don't need means the selling never stops - you create a misaligned client relationship because you're constantly trying to remind them and sell them on why they need the thing that they don't really need. It's not going to be a fruitful relationship for anybody; the customer is going to be frustrated, and you're going to be frustrated because you have to spend too much of your time on this one dynamic rather than selling to the right clients.  There are so many things that happen down the road when you sell to the wrong clients. You don't want to head down this path. Trust me.    On the flip side, when you sell from a place of service, filling a genuine need, not only do you win, your clients win too. From that win-win naturally comes more wins: you get referrals, you get repeat business, selling becomes easier, and you can raise your rates because now you have glowing testimonials. Your clients are bringing in more clients because they're bragging about how freaking awesome you are. They essentially become sales reps for you, helping you make more sales because they're seeing the results from your service.  Determining where you may be misaligned in your sales process   You can't have a business without selling. If you're in the business of creating business, then you need to make sales. But if you're making sales that feel awkward, sleazy, and uncomfortable, it's likely because there's a misalignment.    To solve this, you need to start asking in each sale, Where is the alignment? Where do I fit into my client's current needs? Which piece of the puzzle can I fill for them?   The only way to determine all of this is to have conversations where you literally ask and uncover where they're at.    I have a whole step by step process that I use when taking people through attaining more high ticket sales. I call the process my Connect, Convert, Collect Method.    To start, you need to connect with your potential buyer, understand where they're at, build rapport so there's some trust, and then you confirm that you understand exactly where they're at. After that, you create the possibility, the potential, the opportunity of what it's going to look like when they work with you. Then you clear out any objections so that they feel comfortable committing to exactly what your offer is, and then you close the sale.  As long as that initial part is clear, this can all be done in a conversation. Once you've determined exactly where they're at and what's missing, you can easily determine where your solution aligns in terms of where you can help them.  If you don't figure that out first, it's going to be that kind of sleazy, manipulative, gross selling experience each and every time.    This method is all about making a real connection, building genuine rapport, and then confirming their problems, needs, desires, and exactly where they're at in their business. This way, you can create that possibility and help them visualize the opportunity of having you as their missing puzzle piece.    This is also where you clear out any objections. Overcoming objections is actually much easier than most people think. You can usually predetermine what those objections may be before they even get on the call. You might not get all of them, but you'll get nine out of 10 every time. And from there, you can assume the sale - you assume the commitment. You set a date to start so that you can bring in the close, but you bring in the close in a really soft, gentle, and aligned way. Because at that point, it makes so much sense for them to move forward with you. And then you check up, you follow up to see if there's any extra time needed to make a decision, or potentially they've already bought with you on the call.  If you show up to sell, be prepared to serve.    I see this a lot, especially in the coaching industry - I see so many coaches who are great at sales, but they suck at service. They're great at bringing people in, yet they're terrible at the actual service piece. They're like, Oh, I got them. Now, onto the next.    That's not how this works. If you only focus on sales and not on your actual service, eventually you will be called out and will get a bad name in the industry.    Once you've made the sale, the service begins. Your onboarding service is critical. The experience you create for your client immediately following your close is just as important as the rest of your sales process. Sell and serve, or don't sell at all.  Diving deeper   I'll be diving deeper into my Connect, Convert, Collect Method on a future podcast episode. We will go through each step of the process in more detail: Connect, Confirm, Create, Clear, Commit, Close, and Check. If this is something that you're interested in working with me on one on one, developing exactly what your personal sales process looks like, I would love to take you through it. DM me on Instagram and we can set up a time to chat.

    Jennifer Murray is the owner and founder of Stonebridge Financial Advisors, an independent RIA based out of New Jersey that oversees $100 million of assets under management for 50 families. After experiencing the personal tragedy of losing her husband to cancer, Jennifer built a practice that specializes in recent widows, intentionally working with a limited number of clients to provide a more intimate service.  Listen in as she shares how losing her husband prompted her to focus on providing financial advice for newly-single women, as well as how she used referrals, seminars, bereavement groups, and local hospital foundations to gain clients in the early years. You'll learn what gave Jennifer the confidence to launch her own RIA, how she handles prospects that she doesn't have the capacity to serve, and why she sees fulfillment as a financial advisor as being a combination of serving clients well and being valued by them (and paid accordingly).
