After spending time in the offices of Debbie and Dave, a couple who own a local small business, I’m excited to share a little bit of their story, with their permission of course!
Debbie read our daily “Integrity Moments” for years. During a tough time in business, Debbie discovered our “FIRE Assessment” tool. After taking this powerful self-assessment, and feeling led to make a commitment to God to do business His way, they signed our “FIRE Covenant” and called me for help.
Through tear filled eyes, Debbie shared that their business had thrived until the recession, but she was now broke and broken. After I shared some principles from God’s Word, and prayed and encouraged them, Debbie and Dave left with hope, new found resolve to honor God with their business, and a clearer sense of purpose.
According to Debbie, a month later was the best month they had in years, and the business today is practicing God’s principles. This has resulted in more generosity, a plan to become debt free and a stronger witness for Christ.
I believe that Debbbie and Dave are going to be one of those leaders Jesus referenced in Matthew 5:19 when he said, “Whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”
