In today’s episode, Heather and I chat through her new book “Sent: Living a Life That Invites Others to Jesus”.  We specifically talk about embracing our identity as a sent one, what living a sent life means and looks like in our vocations, the importance of interpersonal curiosity, what this looks like in our work and leadership, and lastly, why the best leaders are helpful.

This episode will remind you that God has strategically placed you in your specific job and position. It will also reignite you towards the realization that your work really matters.
