An essential podcasts for 2012 Christians!
Loren has done a great job at taking principles found in scripture and applying them to the fast-pace lifestyle of the current day and age. It's great hearing insight and encouragement from Life of a Steward, and learning how to apply relevant principles of time management to my life.
Loren is a stand up guy who walks the walk and doesn't just talk the talk. This podcast encourages growth in all aspects of my faith, with the foundational truth that living for God is the only way to find joy, peace and contentment in this world. I feel inspired and challenged by all of the podcasts, and they are well worth the time it takes to listen to them. Life of a Steward is concise and to the point, allowing me time to reflect on what I've heard. Thanks for your hard work, Loren!
I LOVE this podcast. Sometimes we lose awareness of the fact that our time really isn't our own and how to best use it. Loren really helps put things in perspective while providing practical advice for better managing your time. If you're serious about fulfilling whatever mission God has called you to, and you want to make sure you keep first things first, this podcast is a must subscribe.
