Walking in Faith: Stories of Hope and Encouragement for the Workplace
Shari J. Harris has published Walking in Faith: Stories of Hope and Encouragement for the Workplace (WestBow Press), a collection of personal reflections about living out her faith at work. Harris currently works in global organizational development for a Minneapolis Fortune 500 company.
Harris’ personal experience of coming to faith in Jesus Christ through the example and invitation of a coworker served as her inspiration for the book. “When I got close to a friend and she talked about having a personal relationship with Jesus, I just knew she had something different in her life,” Harris said. Her coworker helped her see God in a new light and her life was transformed.
Harris understands that many people don’t think the workplace is where faith belongs, but she remains passionate about the importance of Christians bringing their faith to work.
Jay ’89 and Beth (Knipper ’91) Loecken
Passion to Action
What happens if you make a dramatic change? How does God sustain you in your new life? What will the people around you say? These questions are answered clearly in the book Passion to Action (Guideposts), about the journey of Jay and Beth Loecken and their family.
Passion to Action is a real-life story about asking big questions, seeking answers every day and discovering a big faith along the way. The Loeckens’ adventure started with a life-changing trip to Africa and a heart-transforming progression of events that led to selling their home, leaving the “good life” they thought they’d built and moving their family—all six of them—into an RV and into an adventure of service that’s now in its fourth year. Passion to Action details a deep exploration of the Loeckens’ discovery of who they really were so they could know who God really calls them to be.
