Mondays with Diane
The Gift of Giving
“Giving” is in the air at Christmastime! We buy gifts for others, donate to our favorite charities and maybe even volunteer at a local soup kitchen. While giving is an important part of this special season, God calls us to incorporate intentional giving consistently into our lives year-round. 4word Board of Directors member, Erin Botsford, shares how she learned to give God her “first fruits” through tithing even when she thought it would be financially impossible, and the blessing and renewed heart toward obedient giving that followed.
‘Tis The Season to Burn Out
Although Christmas is a magical time, many of us also experience end-of-the-year burnout during this season. Amaryllis Sánchez Wohlever, MD, an accomplished doctor, author and 4word mentor, shares how God led her into the healthcare profession and gave her a passion for coaching other professionals in the industry through times of burnout and compassion fatigue while re-focusing on Christ. Don’t miss her interview and tips for vital self-care as we approach the New Year!
