    Health, Healing and Wholeness - Tracy Crump pt 1

    Health, Healing and Wholeness - Tracy Crump pt 1

    Health, Healing and Wholeness Tracy Crump pt 1Have you ever been in a situation where everyone around you has given up hope? Where the one left that could do anything at all was God? I know I have. I know most of you probably have had to experience that at one time or another, right?
    Now, imagine if your career caused you to experience these things on almost a daily basis. Imagine if you had to go to work KNOWING that you were going to be placed in a situation where, not just individuals, but families, multiple people would be facing hopeless situations right in front of you, all day long…
    That would be the career choice our guest initially made, working as an ICU nurse and caregiver where she continued to offer hope and encouragement no matter the situation. She did this knowing, that often, we don’t always get to experience healing in this life the way we want it to happen.
    Tracy Crump may have started out as an ICU nurse, but after five years, she transitioned into what she considers her most important career ever, raising her children and providing home schooling for her two boys.
    Through the process of time, she found she had a knack for storytelling and, eventually writing. She has written in over 100 pieces of published works, including numerous pieces that were published in “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” praise God! Her articles have been featured in many national magazines has appeared in “Guideposts” books as well as “The Upper Room,” “Light from the Word” and many other devotional publications. She also does proof reading for the “Farmers Almanac” and is a freelance editor and presents writers workshops through “Write Life Workshops” and at writers conferences across the country.
    Now, after accomplishing all of that, she is releasing her first book in June 2021 titled, https://amzn.to/2OinraH (“Health, Healing, and Wholeness: Devotions of Hope in the Midst of Illness.”) Praise the Lord – help me welcome to the program, Tracy Crump!
    Tracy, thank you for taking the time to join us today on the program…
    First question, other than that brief information I just shared, could you tell us in your own words, “Who is Tracy Crump?”
    Let’s start with your nursing career. What made you want to go into nursing to begin with?
    How did your Faith allow you to minister to those experiencing life altering, if not life ending, situations for themselves or family members and loved ones?
    Did these situations ever shake your Faith and make you ask “Why, God? Why?”
    Was leaving your nursing career a hard choice to make, considering all of the time and money spent on college and getting to that point in your career?
    How difficult was it for you to implement a dedicated and successful home schooling program?
    What challenges did you face when you started home schooling?
    How did you get involved with writing during this time?
    Let’s talk a bit about some of your published works. You have 30 articles in the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series?
    And you have been published in other anthologies as well, right? Can you share some of them that our readers may recognize?
    You’ve written articles for “Focus on the Family” as well, correct?
    You have also been published in “Woman’s World,” “Lifeway Publications” and other periodicals, correct?
    But none of these were ever a “book.” These were articles or chapters, basically, like for “Chicken Soup for the Soul.” What took so long for you to decide to take the plunge and write your first book?
    Your book, https://amzn.to/2OinraH (“Health, Healing, and Wholeness: Devotions of Hope in the Midst of Illness”) is a devotional with thirty different inspirational but with a focus on health issues. Is that correct?
    What made you decide to create this as a devotional?
    How does your book differ from other devotionals? Is it the focus on healt

    Looking Back to Move Forward – Terry Nightingale pt 2

    Looking Back to Move Forward – Terry Nightingale pt 2

    Looking Back to Move Forward Terry Nightingale pt 2Everyone has setbacks. Sometimes, it seems like we may have more setbacks than others. Sometimes it seems like we are set up for a setback. Amen! But, if you actually look back at the events that seemed like a setback, you were actually being set up for success. God is totally in control and at all times. He is never “out of control.” Despite your circumstances, He is always in control.
    There WILL come a point, at some time in the future, when God’s Plan does come to pass in your life. Then you will be able to look back to the famous setback and see how God DID turn it into a set up for where you are now or at that point in time. You will then appreciate how much God loves you and took care of you as He manipulated the path of life you were on, to bring you into a place where He needed you to be at this point in your life. Amen!
    Well, my guest today has written a book just on that very topic! Praise God! Terry Nightingale is a pastor down under in Perth, Western Australia. Pastor Terry authors a weekly blog titled, The Best is Yet to Come” which is short messages for busy Christian on the go.
    He has just released his first non-fiction book for Christian leaders called, https://amzn.to/3qjZPRi (“Looking Back to Move Forward: Embracing Setbacks for Greater Fruitfulness.”) In this book, Pastor Terry suggests some intentional reflection on past experiences in the presence of God may just be the key you need to progress into future fruitfulness… Praise God.
    In your book, you tell the story of Moses sending out the 12 spies and the bad report they brought back. How does God use that by looking back to move forward?
    You also share the story of a time you tried to talk to your pastor about some concerns, but the timing and place you decided to discuss it was not the best. But you pushed forward with the discussion anyway and it caused irreparable harm to your relationship. Looking back, how could you have handled that situation differently?
    In your book, how do your recommend people to handle situations like this?
    Many times, leaders – and pastors in particular, feel alone. They are expected to have all the answers. They are expected to behave perfectly in every situation. They are expected never do anything wrong – ever! They are expected to be available at the drop of a hat and all of that. How can leaders and pastors handle these kinds of expectations from their followers and not drive people off by making it clear that “they are human, too?”
    One of the biggest things leaders, and pastors, have to face is their own disappointments. They wanted to achieve X,Y,Z and didn’t. They wanted to double the size of the congregation in three years, instead it decreased. They wanted to increase the amount of income so they could expand the sanctuary, or whatever, but their goals never materialized. How should they handle those kinds of disappointment?
    How important is it for pastors and ministry leaders to have someone they can confide in? I know, most people think the pastor confides in God…but I’m talking about a person who knows what they are going through. How important has that been for you and how do you recommend someone do this as well?
    Terry, your book, https://amzn.to/3qjZPRi (“Looking Back to Move Forward,”) is fascinating. I think everyone needs to get a copy of it. The concepts you share are absolutely spot on. How can someone get a copy of your book? It’s on Amazon, correct?
    And you are putting together a podcast as well as you blog site, correct?
    Tell us about your blog and what your podcast is about…
    I have one more question for you before we close…
    Can you tell us about your first Christian novel you wrote? The one that dealt with time travel? That sounds interesting…
    Folks, Terry Nightingale has shared with you some insights that, trut

Amen! But, if you actually look back at the events that seemed like a setback, you were actually being set up for success. God is totally in control and at all times. He is never “out of control.” Despite your circumstances, He is always in control.
    I know you’ve heard the scripture quoted, usually be some well-meaning Christian who is trying to make you feel good when you are in the midst of a setback, that “All things work for good for them that love the Lord… and you just have to trust God in this situation…” How did that make you feel at that time? Is that what you needed to hear?
    There WILL come a point, at some time in the future, when God’s Plan does come to pass in your life. Then you will be able to look back to the famous setback and see how God DID turn it into a set up for where you are now or at that point in time.

    Well, my guest today has written a book just on that very topic! Praise God! Terry Nightingale is a pastor down under in Perth, Western Australia. He moved there from the United Kingdom in 2003, with his wife Sue and he has been involved in some facet of Christian ministry over the years in teaching, evangelism, music ministry and pastoral care. Pastor Terry authors a weekly blog titled, The Best is Yet to Come” which is short messages for busy Christian on the go.
    He has just released his first non-fiction book for Christian leaders called, https://amzn.to/3qjZPRi (“Looking Back to Move Forward: Embracing Setbacks for Greater Fruitfulness.”) In this book, Pastor Terry suggests some intentional reflection on past experiences in the presence of God may just be the key you need to progress into future fruitfulness… Praise God.
    Help me welcome to the program, Pastor Terry Nightingale! Pastor Terry, thank you for joining us on the program today!
    The first question I always ask is this, other than that brief information I just shared, tell us in your own words, “Who is Terry Nightingale?”
    Why do you think God had you write this book for this time that we are in right now?
    Many authors write books based on their past experiences. I know I have as well. Is this book based on your own experiences and are these included in the book?
    Have you noticed that “complaining” seems to be the norm for almost everyone, church folks included. We complain about the weather, the politics, the length of the pastors sermon. Some complain it is too short, to vague others that it is too long, to technical. Some don’t like the way the pastor is dressed and others don’t like the way the pastor’s wife is dressed. I could go on and on. But I know you experience that as well. Is this something discussed in your book, the complaining? And how does God use that to move us forward?
    What about the backstabbing? For Moses, they wanted to kill him. That probably is not so prevalent in society today – but the backstabbing still is. And, truth be told, we all have done it concerning others in our past. How does all of this “work together for good” as we move forward in life?
    When building anything, a ministry, a business, etc., there will be good times and bad. That is expected. In your book, how does God use the story of the bad report the twelve spies came back and reported, to actually move them forward?
    You tell the story of the time you tried to talk to your pastor about some concerns, but the timing and place you decided to discuss it was not the best. And, when told so, how you pushed forward with the co

    The 3 C’s of Role Model Caleb Woods pt 1
    Caleb Woods is CEO of RoleModel Software and promotes continuous improvement while cultivating a collaborative work environment with Christian values.
    Caleb grew up in Michigan and started working in a financial consulting firm while still in high school…praise God! While there, he progressed so fast he was soon began customizing CMS plugins and even writing some JavaScript himself. Amen!
    He pursued a college degree in Computer Information and Technology through an accelerated program as part of CollegePlus. They were so impressed with his abilities, they offered him a position with their company.
    Fast forward a bit and CollegePlus needed help from a software development company and, in the Lord’s plan and timing, Caleb was offered a position with this company, called RoleModel.
    He continued to take on more and more leadership roles as was quickly promoted to Chief Technology Officer.
    Then, just a short time ago, Caleb was promoted by the business founder to role of Chief Executive Officer for RoleModel, a Christian founded custom software company in Holly Springs, NC.
    Caleb says the purpose of RoleModel is to “glorify God by applying their craft to serve business innovators and collegues.” RoleModel is now 20 years old and is a world-class, collaborative software development team with over $5 million of projected revenue and over 30 employees that are all dedicated to delivering the highest quality, custom web and mobile software solutions while cultivating a work environment where community, family, learning and mentoring flourish.
    You are a Christian and you stand for your Christian values. Is that one of the things that attracted you to working with RoleModel?
    RoleModel Software Company uses the gifts and talents to honor God first and then you seek to serve your clients and bring them value. That is a tremendous statement! As a business to business company, is your faith reflected in how you serve your clients?
    RoleModel has three core values: Character, Collaboration and Craftsmanship. Can you go over those three core values and explain to us how that has been implemented in your business and how it affects all that you do?
    Tell us about the mentorship program at RoleModel Software and how this allows you to grow and build your internal resources, your current employees and raise them up to become leaders…
    If someone listening to us right now is either just starting out with a software company or maybe they are aspiring to work with one, what advice can you give them that you wish someone would have shared with you?
    In this time of COVID and of shutdowns, etc., how has this affected your business?
    What drives you every day? What gives you that, “I need to get moving” mentality?
    Where do you see RoleModel Software, say in ten years?
    Is building custom software a wise investment? Either for investors or for people working in the industry?
    Folks, the information you just received is stuff you will not hear anywhere else, amen! Caleb Woods is someone who started with just a desire to serve the Lord in the gifts the Lord had blessed him with. That’s where everyone should start off – amen! But look at what the Lord has done! And, we know the Lord is no respecter of persons! What He did for Caleb Woods and the staff and company at RoleModel Software – He will do for you and your company!
    But in order to activate the Blessing – you have to walk in the Blessing. And that entails putting God first and foremost in everything you do!
    I encourage you to get in touch with Caleb Woods. Reach out to him. Ask him questions. See if he and his staff at RoleModel Software can assist you in developing that missing piece of the puzzle that will propel you to the next level of success. Ask Caleb to come and speak at your conferences. Basically, just get in touch with him today a
