Have you found a career yet?  And is it fulfilling you, allowing you to use your gifts and perhaps to even further the Kingdom of God?  As a working mom, it can be really hard sometimes to find career guidance from a Christian perspective. We firmly believe that you can further the kingdom of God, regardless of where you are. And that God can use you, regardless of where he has planted you.

We have an expert guest, Janine Esbrand, with us today and we will be talking all about career. I am really excited about today's interview, as I was able to ask Janine some questions about the subject of careers that I have seen come up in our community. So, on the show today, we will be tackling topics that relate to how to handle a change in career with your family, how to present the change to your family, how to figure out where your strengths lie and move through everything smoothly. Listen in to find out more.
