My guest today is my friend Shawna Sullivan. We have a wildly fun conversation about how to start seeing your life differently–through, what Shawna calls, the lens of investment. Now, before you think this is about money or finance–let me encourage you. Today’s show is all about how you live in light of the Gospel. Shawna lived in Manhattan for more than a decade and learned some invaluable lessons about what it means to follow Jesus and make decisions with the ultimate end in mind.
We talk about topics such as:
1) How to assess what’s most important in life, in terms of what we do with our time and energy.
2) How to see your life, your activities, and your choices through the lens of God’s kingdom.
3) Why taking care of your temple doesn’t mean you have to be “hot” for Jesus.
4) What it means to be a disciple maker and how simple but impactful that can be!
5) How to find the true makeover story in our own stories.
