    ABW 101 – Surrendering Your Business to God (w/ Matt Walton)

    ABW 101 – Surrendering Your Business to God (w/ Matt Walton)

    Matt Walton is a living example of someone whose life and business demands a supernatural explanation! Even though he accepted Jesus at a young age, Matt Walton struggled throughout his life with addiction, jail, and at one point even suicide. He had  a business that was on the verge of failure, and owed 2 years of back-taxes and mortgage payments on his house. At the point of despair, he made the radical decision to surrender his business and his life completely to God. Within 3 months of that fateful decision, he'd paid off all his bills and had enough cash left over to invest back into his business. In the last year, things in his life and business have turned around so radically that there's simply no other explanation than God!

    ABW 100 – I Thought God Hated Me w/ Deirdre Van Nest (Part 2)

    ABW 100 – I Thought God Hated Me w/ Deirdre Van Nest (Part 2)

    This interview is a huge milestone, as it marks the 100th episode of A Better Way Podcast! Wow! And what a fitting milestone...after leaving you on a cliffhanger last time–the wait is over! This follow-up episode is Part 2 of last week's conversation with Deirdre Van Nest. We go deep into some extremely powerful and practical business concepts this week, building further on the spiritual foundation of what we discussed last week. 

    In Part 1 of this interview, Deirdre Van Nest describes how she tragically lost her mother as a young girl. For decades, she thought God hated her and couldn't make sense of why this tragedy was allowed to happen to her. As a result, she wanted nothing to do with God. But through meeting a Christian friend in college who had an undeniable peace and joy, Deirdre began to question what her friend had that she did not–and if, just maybe, it had something to do with this God she wanted nothing to do with.

    So through scriptural study and prayer, Deirdre set out to investigate for herself if the claims of Christianity were true, and who Jesus really was. She discovered the Truth was nothing like what she thought. In fact, God was so real and personally invested in her life that He began to lead her into her heart's desires, specifically in the realm of business and entrepreneurship. This eventually led to the thriving business she now owns, but it in a way she never would have asked or imagined for herself.

    ABW 98 – Kingdom Driven Startups (w/ Chris Heaslip)

    ABW 98 – Kingdom Driven Startups (w/ Chris Heaslip)

    Chris Heaslip is the Founder of PushPay, a giving-focused online payment platform which many of you have probably used many times at church or elsewhere. While PushPay has had phenomenal global success since its launch in 2011, Chris says he had 14 failed startups before that. So, what made the difference between repeated failure and overwhelming success? According to Chris, it was a revelation from the Lord about a focus on giving vs getting, with a heart of serving and obedience. Building on that transformative Kingdom mindset, Chris is now applying that same heart to his newest startup called Tome, an app that gets people to engage with the Bible in a personally meaningful way through video and personal testimonies. 

    To connect and learn more, download the Tome app or check out https://tomeapp.com. You can also reach out to Chris directly at chris.heaslip@tomeapp.com. If this interview or anything you see on Tome has impacted you, please reach out to Chris or myself at ryan@godsbetterway.com to let us know, as that is a huge encouragement for us as well!

    ABW 97 – Christ Over Career (w/ Cameron Arnett)

    ABW 97 – Christ Over Career (w/ Cameron Arnett)

    Cameron Arnett was just getting his big start as a Hollywood actor, and was offered a great role. But there was just one problem...the role required him to compromise his integrity as a follower of Jesus. So he had to make a choice: Christ, or his career. Cameron chose Christ, and it cost him his acting career. It was a very difficult and humbling experience, but God used it to develop Cameron for much greater things. Cameron is now doing those greater things, and in the process God restored Cameron's acting career–but in a way that doesn't require him to sacrifice his integrity, and glorifies Jesus to make Him known to the whole world. 

    To learn more about all the amazing things God is now doing through Cameron and Christ over Career, check out www.cameronarnett.com, www.savingdestinies.com, and www.camyarnett.com.

    ABW 96 – It Takes A Village (w/ Tami Thorsen)

    ABW 96 – It Takes A Village (w/ Tami Thorsen)

    Tami Thorsen gave her heart to Jesus at the age of 6, and ever since then has felt called to missions in Africa. Many decades later, the Lord is now answering that desire He placed in her heart, but not necessarily in the way she originally thought. After many years of full-time missions work in Bolivia, Tami battled a crippling illness she never thought she'd recover from. But God used that to give Tami a new form of ministry, in the form of a coaching business. 

    Tami is now an International Coaching Federation (ICF)-licensed coach, with a powerful discipleship-training multiplication model that is equal parts Gospel, personal coaching, and entrepreneurial/business development. Tami's coaching draws out and unlocks God's unique design for each of her clients, and incorporates that with their business and the surrounding community. Through very recent divine appointments with partners overseas, Tami is able to provide online coaching and training programs in remote villages in Liberia, which is in–wait for it...AFRICA! Tami's dream of missions in Africa is coming true in a way that is truly "exceedingly, abundantly, beyond all she could ask, think, or imagine" (Ephesians 3:20). 

    To connect with Tami, you can visit her website: https://www.head2heartonward.com/ To learn more about how you can support her overseas "Business as Missions" fund that empowers Liberian women to create a sustainable business that honors God, check out Mission 2:10 Sponsorship Fund
