What’s the Difference between Being Productive and Bearing Fruit?

One day, the Lord approached me. “I’d like you to play a role in my story,” He said.“Wow, me? What can I do?” I said.“I’ve picked you to glorify Me. I’ll guide your every step. Here,” He held out my worn leather Bible. “This contains everything you need to know to shine in your part.”I opened it to John 15:8 (NASB) and read, “My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit.” That’s just what the Lord said He wanted. I’d better get busy.…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
From Dan's book 48 Days and his email letter. I want to stay up to date on new resources and be equipped to be best coach and presenter I can be.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
My husband and I founded and operate a nonprofit biblical counseling and teaching ministry called Lighthouse Ministries. We help people overcome the hurdles in their lives and become productive, satisfied individuals. I love helping people gain a new perspective and turn past pain and unpleasant circumstances into opportunities to grow and prosper. I dabble on the side in interior decorating and provide high quality French reproduction furniture.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I like learning new things and get bored with the same things. I like empowering others to reach their potential. I see this as opportunity to help me do that. Working on promoting and publishing my new Bible study for women.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
Improving my writing skills. Love beauty and change of seasons. Taking time to take it in. Enjoy interior design and helping people with their homes.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Vision, working with people to help them gain vision and hope. Teaching, writing. Facilitating small group discussion. In the past, recognizing a need and recruiting people to create a team to accomplish a goal. Leading and teaching Bible studies. Eye for quality and beauty.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.LighthouseMinistriesNC.org
More than one website?
http://www.Romans1513.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:

What Good Can Come from Bad News?

“The vet called. The tests on Max came back positive.” My husband’s words punched me in the stomach. Have you ever felt slugged by unwelcomed news?

IMG_0719 Max is our two-year-old standard poodle. If I could use only one word to describe him, it would be magnificent. Max’s beautiful tail waves like a banner when he glides down the sidewalk. His coat is as thick as lamb’s fleece. When he was a…

The Promise of Rest

Posted on April 1, 2014 at 9:35am 4 Comments

I’m a woman of faith who wrestles with doubts. Not doubts about whether God exists or if He’s good. My doubts are more about whether I’ll miss His will or if I’ll like His will for my life. These concerns sabotage my ability to rest in God.

The Importance of Focus: Lessons from a Bike

Posted on March 25, 2014 at 6:30am 4 Comments

Growing up in New Orleans, my friend Sandi road bikes with her family on Sunday afternoons. Every week her mom would say, “Sandi, don’t hit the pedestrians.” And every week Sandi would run into one of them.

Debbie, it was great to connect with you in person at the 48 Days Facilitator Certification. If I can do anything to help (even if it’s to answer a question), let me know, especially since I'm right down the street from you.

During the coaching I mentioned I have 101 free or low-cost ideas to help you market. Please fee free to download and use (no more than 2 or 3 initially) as you like.

Also, if you're trying to grow a business as a coach and want to see the model I've used successfully over the years, feel free to download the Six Figure Coaching Model I just put together.

Again, if I can help in any way, let me know.

All my best,
Justin

Deborah -- Welcome to 48Days.net. And thanks for already being a reader of my books and newsletter.

You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group here. If you’re looking for additional ideas – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

And there are a whole lot of other coaches and counselors here. You'll find plenty of kindred spirits who share your heart's desire. In reading your goals I'm reminded that everything I'm doing today grew out of a Sunday School class. I thought I was just doing my part in "ministry" and yet my business just exploded out of that willingness to serve.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! -- Dan Miller – 48 Days
