From the desk of Grace Lange,
Do you ever get that icky feeling…
That feeling when things just feel off or like you aren’t living how you want?
Although that feeling can be a scary place to be, it can also be the wake up call that we you may need.
Kelsey and I felt this wake up call about a year ago.
We were a year into our business and things were going great, but we continued to have this tug on our hearts to do something more.
We are so passionate about helping people live up to their full and true potential… but at this time, it felt like something was missing from the way we approached our work.
A lot of the work we do surrounds the idea of leaning into your values. When you get clear on what you value, everything else should start to feel like it fits and makes sense.
So we decided that we needed to get clear on our values…
As individuals and as a business, we needed to understand our foundation before we could continue to help others understand theirs.
So Kelsey and I took some personal time to reflect on our values, and we came back together to share them with each other.
For both of us, our #1 value was faith.
We asked each other what this meant to us, and we realized that it meant that there is a bigger purpose to life, we are not in control, and the plan is already made for us.
We needed to remember to trust God in all of our decisions – In our personal and business lives.
So then we set out to understand what all of our values are as a business, and this is what we decided on:
- Authentic Relationships
- Innovation and creativity
- Teaching others
- Helping our community
And if you notice… the first letter of each word spells out faith…
Because our faith in God should and needs to be in everything we do.
This led us to realize that we were not really living a life that felt good to us and that we needed to change!
Through hundreds of conversations (seriously probably more) we decided that we were going to create an event based around our faith…
Thus Breakfast & Bibles!!
We realized that we weren’t the only ones struggling to bring God into our everyday lives, so we knew we needed to help others do the same.
In the secular world we live in, it is so hard to live by the Word…
But when you have a community of people who are all striving for more in their lives, it can be much easier.
We wanted to create a space for people to come, enjoy wonderful company, and be reminded that God wants to be in every area of our lives.
We also wanted to do it early in the morning before we all head off to work, to remind us that He especially wants to be with us when we work.
We are all called to work, and sometimes through the mundane tasks and everyday hardships, we forget to turn to our Lord and thank him and ask for his help.
At Breakfast & Bibles we help remind you why you are doing what you are doing…
There is a bigger purpose.. And you are called for more.
So if you want to grow in your faith and find others who want to come along side you…
Join us at our next Breakfast & Bibles on February 24th at 7:15am at Dakota Medical Foundation in Fargo, ND!
