019: How to Receive Revelation for Your Business with Mechanical Engineer Ron Derrick
Ron Derrick is the principal engineer, designer and consultant at Derrick Mechanical, a mechanical engineering firm specializing in metals mining, energy, industrial materials, heavy manufacturing, agriculture, construction, and other industrial support services. Ron lives in Arizona with Andrea, his wife of 25 years and they are the parents of seven children. What We'll Cover: The type of engineering Ron specializes in and how he went from being an employee to a one-man consulting, design and implementation firm. Dispelling the myth that scientists like engineers are less believing or religious than others. The role inspiration played in the process of starting his business. The process Ron used for putting together a business plan and the importance of writing in that process. The pattern of the Doctrine of Christ: faith, repentance, making covenants and receiving the Holy Ghost. The process of covenants and “binding ourselves to act” by making and keeping promises to God. How we can practice creating things (tasks, projects, our day, etc.) spiritually before we move forward and create m in actuality. How and why effective prayer means real communication with Heavenly Father. What it’s like to truly hear the Spirit inspiring your thoughts and action. The relationship between decision making and “binding ourselves to act”. How Ron prayed for help with a challenging client project and was led to solve a previously unsolvable mechanical plate structure problem. How to fast to learn from what has happened in the past rather than for something we want to happen in the future. How we will still experience challenges even when we are worthy and that challenges do not mean we are out of favor with God. How Ron uses journaling to aid in the revelatory process and to see the hand of God in his life and in his business. What evidence you can look for that indicates the Holy Ghost is active in your life and in your business. Why it’s important to act on the first prompting from the Holy Ghost and how to recognize those promptings when you receive them. How to ask and answer the question each day, “How am I going to exercise my faith?” The spiritual practices that keep the Holy Ghost active in our lives. What the revelatory process looks like: confusion, questions, studying/pondering, conclusions, decide, make an attempt, then there is light. How we become what the Lord wants us to be.

Randy Dix has built a thriving residential real estate practice in Gilbert, Arizona by Living the Golden Rule in all he does. He works with his daughter Janine Igliane and together they sold over 100 homes in 2016. The secret to their sales success is developing business and marketing systems that both streamline and expedite the home sales process. After listing my rental property with them last year (and following all of their advice from painting to staging), the home sold in 5 days. The key to Living the Golden Rule, Randy says, is being in constant conversation with the Lord, to assure that everything he does is according to His will. (Viewing this on your podcasting app?

007: Viewing Convicted Criminals as Children of God with Forensic Psychologist Jason Frizzell
Dr. Jason Frizzell previously served as a chief psychologist in the Arizona Department of Corrections where he developed programs such as mental health awareness training for corrections personnel, conducted psychotherapy with mentally ill offenders, and provided supervision for other mental health professionals seeking state licensure. He is now employed as a forensic psychologist by the Maricopa County Competency Evaluation Program where he conducts psychological evaluations for the courts. Dr. Frizzell has also taught at the university level, conducting courses in introductory psychology, substance abuse, personality theory, and statistics. In this episode, we will cover: How he got into forensic psychology. What forensic psychologists do. Why he enjoys working with the forensic population. What a day on the job looks like working with inmates who may be in super max facilities and even on death row. Whether there is a tendency among those working in the prison systems to want to let prisoners suffer, rather than receive counseling or psychological treatment because “they deserve it.” The best experience and worst experience he’s had as a forensic psychologist. What it’s like to be on suicide watch in prison and what one inmate did when Jason wouldn’t take him off suicide watch immediately. How working with criminals impacts his spiritual state and what he does to prepare himself to face that environment. How saying to someone, “Tell me your story?” and then listening intently can help us see others as the Lord sees them (i.e., with greater love, compassion and understanding). The phenomenon is psychology called the Fundamental Attribution Error and how we tend to take credit for success and excuse our failures, but when others fail we overvalue how responsible they were for their failure or misdeeds. The importance of doing activities that make us feel renewed. Stress and coping research that has to do with developing hardiness or resilience to protect ourselves against the stresses of everyday life. How to maintain a belief in forgiveness, redemption and a God that is good when working with people who have done terrible things. How to find peace in the knowledge that judgment is not up to us and that everything will be worked out in the judgment in the next life. Why inmates find God in prison and how prevalent conversion is inside the prison system. How it’s more common for prisoners to become more antisocial. What it’s like to bear the responsibility of evaluating someone’s mental state. The important role of humility when working as a forensic psychologist. How Jason addresses the idea that if God is good and loving and all that He is purported to be, how could He created mentally defective people who then, as a result of that defect, do horrifying things to others. The purpose and purifying power of sin and suffering. How changing our perspective on an experience or situation can enable us to move through suffering and grow as a result. How being in therapy can be hard work but that it’s worth it. Where to start when you, a friend, loved one or employee who you think may have a mental illness. The importance of working with a therapist who specializes in the issues you are dealing with and the willingness of therapists to refer you to the right person. Options for people who don’t have insurance, including state funded mental health care programs and counseling programs at local universities and colleges that may even have sliding fees based on your income. How life is like a lawn full of weeds (a metaphor for mental health). The importance of doing things that are renewing and stress-reducing for you; don’t wait until catastrophic things happen because little stresses are cumulative and build up over time.

006: Developing an Abundance Mentality with Terry Davis
Terry Davis is an author, attorney, business coach and abundance mentor. He is the founder of SmartBizUniversity.com, an online mentoring and business development training program for small and medium sized businesses. He has served as counsel for several successful startups, including the company that first introduced global Internet service to the commercial cruise-line industry. His book Receive and Achieve…Now! 15 Bible Secrets on How to Find Joy, Success & Abundance in Small Business is about “equipping the saints for success and warfare.” Terry says, “I wrote this book...to provide entrepreneurs with a system to grow their businesses based on biblical principles so they can transform the world.” Terry is married with two children. He is an active member of the Church of the Highlands in Montgomery, Alabama. In this episode, we will cover: 3 Secrets to Developing an Abundance Mentality... Prepare for spiritual warfare. Have faith in God. Be a giver. 6 Myths About Abundance and Money... It’s wrong to pray about money. It’s wrong to desire prosperity. Having wealth makes you a bad person. Having money is the root of all evil. God doesn’t care about trials with money. God is pleased when we seek security. And More... Why it’s important to act and pray like God wants us to be abundant. How having abundance enables us to do more of what God calls us to do. The difference between money and the love of money being “the root of all evil.” Handling the difficult choice of staying on the path God has called you to or going back to doing what makes money when times are financially tough. Dealing with the IRS when you have tax issues. The difference between having faith and exercising faith. The story about two farmers and which one exercised more faith. The importance of recognizing that everything we have belongs to God. How money is “neutral” and what we can do to “put God’s Spirit on it” by giving back to Him. How developing the habit of giving prepares us to willingly respond to God’s promptings when He needs us to give in specific situations. God’s word talks about money more than any other topic in the Bible. How money makes you more of who you already are. Using music, people, and the things you expose yourself to ion order to be pickled in the Gospel and become a person who will make right choices because of the influence and spirit you are under all the time. Why it's important to get yourself financially and spiritually fit so you can go out and do God’s work. When it comes to money, God wants us to be not like a sieve or strainer but like a funnel so that when He pours wealth into our lives, He is able to direct where it goes. We do that by 1) making a budget, 2) giving back to God, 3) saving money, 4) creating an emergency fund, 5) starting to eliminate debt. In other words, don’t pray for money on the one hand and then be irresponsibly spending or wasting it on the other. Scriptures Quoted or Referenced: Jeremiah 29:11: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (NIV) Genesis 22:13: “Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son.” (NIV) Ephesians 6:10-17: “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then,

GABT 005: Investigative Reporter Finds God with Mike Wendland
For the first time ever, investigative reporter Mike Wendland shares the story of his conversion. When one woman dares to send a letter to his television station quoting the Bible, his not-so-kind response sends him down a rabbit hole of transformation no one ever could have predicted. Don't miss this episode where Mike reveals what it's like to be a renowned, award-winning reporter (18 Emmy Awards) dealing with death, deceit and corruption on a daily basis. He shares his thoughts on the state of the media today, what we as consumers can do to influence the media for good, and posits opportunities to develop media outlets created for and by Believers. Mike Wendland is the Family Motorcoach Association's Roving Reporter, author of the Open Mike Column in Motor Coaching Magazine, creator of daily inspirations at MikesDailySoap.com, and the NBC-TV Newschannel technology correspondent for all 215 NBC-TV stations. You can find Mike online at: Mike's Daily Soap: http://mikesdailysoap.com Roadtreking Travel Blog: http://roadtreking.com PC Mike Tech Blog: http://pcmike.com What We Cover in This Episode: How Mike survived the “dark, egocentric world” of journalism. How God gives us passions and gifts that we can use in our careers and why you should do something you love. The media has been a mess, never as bad as now, and what you can do about it. How the darkness, evil and corruption of the world lead to cynicism, pride and using others as a means to your own end. The temptation of prizes, awards, honors and scooping the competition. Why he lied about reading the Bible. What happened when he decided to take a 12-week “Survey of the Old Testament” course with his wife (with the subtle intention to prove it wasn’t true). Why, as a believer, he could no longer “hold his head up” and remain part of the media. How he transitioned from telling terrible stories to telling “good” stories on his blog. What we should do as consumers of media today. Most reporters care about evil, corruptions and want to make a difference and to do good, but… How this generation of journalists has been taught to think a certain way and how that affects the presentation of the media today, often making evil look good and good appear evil. How to be aware of the mainstream media bias and anger and how to keep a balance by reading conservative media too. Why Mike would never, as a Christian, send his child to a public university. As consumers, what we can do to have a good, positive influence on the media today. The opportunity we all have to develop an alternate media that represents and preserves Christian values. How “Christianese” can be the most destructive language we’ve even heard and how to promote Christian values in ways others can understand and digest. What it means to be an “ipastor” running and “icampus”. Staying connected to God while you’re on the road. The funny thing Mike Huckabee does to serve in his church. Why it’s important to learn to do your own Bible study that is independent of anything else. How to use social media to challenge bad stories and point out good stories. How the song “Amazing Grace” saved a woman from death and led to the eventual conversion of her attacker. (After the end of the show during the “after party” so keep listening.)

004: How to Connect with God through Visual Arts with Priscilla Williams
Priscilla Williams is a Methodist minister turned full-time fine artist. In addition to painting works of art in partnership with God, her specialty is teaching others to connect with God via the visual language of art, either through the creation of art or through the inspired observation of art, also known as Glory Gazing. If you are looking to connect with God in new and different ways or have an interest in the creative arts, this episode is for you! In this episode, you will learn: The process of coming to God we must go through when we are stuck in the world yet looking for more. How art can facilitate the process of coming to God and help you connect in new and different ways with Him. How to get clarity when you feel God is calling you to more than one work and you don’t see how it all fits together. The importance of learning and using multiple sensory languages (visual, verbal, auditory, kinesthetic, etc.) to connect with and commune with God.

How the arts let us absorb and relate beyond words to God and to each other because God wanted to say more than words about Himself. How to let God “do the protecting” even when you or your dreams have been crushed by the insensitive or cruel comments of others.

002: How Child Abuse Prepared Me for My Life Purpose with Suzette Wynder Bendt
Suzette is a poet, parent, prison guard, painter and custom quilter. Although a victim of child abuse, Suzette always heard the voice of God telling her she was loved and that He had a purpose for her life. In elementary school, she made a vow to never let a child pass her by without knowing that they are loved. She grew up to work with children as a juvenile detention officer working with boys in the state of Florida (many of them also suffering from child abuse) where she was known as “Officer Love”. As an adult she raised and/or fostered more than twenty children. Suzette is a shining example of enduring the hardships of life and turning “lemons into lemonade.” She could have chosen hatred and resentment, but she did not. Her ability to turn anguish into beauty is remarkable. In this episode, you will learn: Why bad things like child abuse happen to good people. How to find and feel the Holy Ghost. The importance of keeping one’s body “clean” in order to feel God’s spirit. Terrible abuse that leads people to become abusers themselves. Whether there are people who really “know not what they do” when it comes to abuse. How praying about your art can really make a difference. Resources Mentioned: Quotes on a spiritual life before this one... “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) “Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The Soul that rises with us, our life’s Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting And cometh from afar; Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come From God, who is our home: Heaven lies about us in our infancy!” – Ode on Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood by William Wordsworth Poems Prayer of an Abused Child Please take me home. I do not want to be here anymore. God, are you there? Can you hear me? I do not belong here. God, why do I hurt so bad inside? Why do I have to stay? Why can’t I go with you? I want to go away. My dollies are no longer fun. My friends I no longer play. Why do I hurt so bad inside? I want to go away. Why am I so bad, dear Lord? I really do not want to be. If I could just go home with you So perfect I would be. Please hold my hand and walk with me. Take me far away So I can laugh, and run, and play. No longer feel this way. Spirit as a Rose Daily water, daily sun Watch me grow Holding tight the kingdoms come Watch me grow Reaching out along the way Giving beauty every day Watch me grow As the rose reaches out to the sun So does man to God. Nourishing our bodies with scripture; The rose is water. Lighting our way with prayer; The rose is sun. We shall blossom as a rose And as a rose supplies nectar to the bees, So shall man supply nectar to man. And even as a rose Man is periodically cut down. As long as he feeds and is enlightened, He shall grow stronger than the year before. And the beauty he leaves will be remembered And live on forever more. As the rose reaches for the trellis, So shall man reach for His kingdom. Freedom Lies Freedom lies within the man Brave enough to take a stand. Stand away from scars untold. Stand away from fear so bold. Brave enough to fix the wrong. And go the way with freedom’s song. Will I be the joy or sorrow? Will I be the pain or peace? Will I be the love and comfort Or be that of the least? All my tomorrows are now at hand. I shall choose to take a stand. I will be the joy. I will be the peace. I will be the comforter And to give the love at least. Freedom song is that of choice. Freedom lies within the man Brave enough to take a stand. Life’s Battle Walking along life’s battle front, Unshaken I will be. For ahead of the battle cry Lies victory for me. Immovable forces I have behind, The throne shall honour be.

000: Welcome to the God and Business Today Podcast
This episode will tell you a little bit about what to expect from the podcast, why you might want to listen, some of the types of people we’ll hear from, where to find the podcast and additional resources online, and a little bit about me, Tami Call, and why I decided to start this podcast. What Is God and Business Today? God and Business Today explores the role of God, faith and prayer in the lives of entrepreneurs, business owners and experts around the world. I do this with two purposes in mind. The first goal is to inspire you to involve God in your business because, in my experience, God cares about me enough to bless me with what I need in my business, and I believe he will do the same for you. Second, I want to create a safe space to share stories about the role of God in our business lives. It’s often not acceptable to talk about business, money or earnings and church. It’s likewise unacceptable to talk about God, religion and prayer in the work place. I’m creating a podcast and a community where we can talk about God and business in the same conversation and have it be an inspiring, rather than a controversial, experience. Why Bother Listening? Sometimes we feel alone and like no one is trying to build a faith-centered business. With God and Business Today, you don’t have to feel alone. You can know that there are people just like you praying for diving guidance and getting answers. The goal is to form a community so that we can share and support each other in these efforts. Whom Will You Be Hearing From? It’s a pretty long list! Authors, coaches, lawyers, engineers, beauty queens, artists, singers, songwriters, novelists, podcasters, politicians, CEOs, therapists, trainers and more. Think you’d make a great guest? Know someone you’d like to recommend? Go to our website at http://godandbusinesstoday.com, click the tab on the right to leave a voicemail. You can also visit http://facebook.com/godandbusinesstoday and send me a message. Where Can I Find God and Business Today? You can find the show online at http://godandbusinesstoday.com, on Facebook at http://facebook.com/godandbusinesstoday.com and on Twitter at http://twitter.com/godandbusiness. Who is Tami Call? I am a mom with three kids: two boys ages 16 and 14, and a daughter who is ten. I’ve been married to my husband Eric for 23 years. I have an MBA. I worked in seminar training and development for about 12 years. I spent several years copywriting and got started as one of the first copywriters for Infusionsoft. I’m not focusing on developing my own courses and still serve some private clients. You can learn more about me at http://breakthroughtobrilliance.com.
