Happy new year! In this episode we are joined by author Michael Priebe to discuss how to be spiritually encouraged and achieve fulfillment at work. According to a recent survey perhaps a third of America’s workers are suffering from chronic work stress. He also tells us about his 90 day devotional, The Lovely Grind: Spiritual Inspiration for Workdays, his self care methods, and more!

- Work stress becomes a problem when it begins to get in the way of our ability to enjoy life or when it clouds how we see ourselves or others
- One of the ways professional fulfillment occurs when we can express ourselves and not feel pressured to conform in our workplace
- We can’t separate our spiritual life from our work life. When something is out of our control at work, this is a great opportunity to give the situation to God
- Colossians 3:23 – Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men,
- Matthew 11:28 -“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
