Working Through a Crisis


by Janna Wiley Working from home can be something alien to most of us. Adapting to the changes in our routines and lifestyle can be a bit of a shock to us both mentally and physically. As humans, we can adapt to changes as best as we can. After some suggestions from friends and family members, we can start creating our new normal with working from home, but why are we still down? Why am I still tired? Why am I still lingering in the past? Most of us, maybe, have never worked through a crisis. Sometimes a “crisis” can extend [...]

by Santiago Chavez Working from home (telecommuting) is a wonderful privilege that comes with many benefits and some challenges. I have observed that not every personality type can work from home and that is understandable. As someone who has transitioned into semi-retirement, it is an ideal fit for my circumstances. I offer the following tips for working from home that may be useful to some: Communicate 1.      Communicate and over-communicate. Co-workers in an office setting can see when you come into or do not come into work, while supervisors in a telecommute situation may only know you were unable to accomplish a task [...]

Makayla Ross’ 4 Tips for Working from Home


by Makayla Ross 4 Tips for Working from Home shared by Artios Christian College Registrar Makayla Ross: Tip #1 – Set up a Dedicated Workspace Set up a dedicated space for work. This space should be in a location where you can focus and concentrate best. Having your “workspace” be clean and clutter-free will also help your mental capacity as you work.

Kristin Gonzalez’s 7 Tips for Working from Home


by Kristin Gonzalez 7 Tips for Working from Home shared by Kristin Gonzalez, Artios Christian College Student Services Advisor: Tip #1 – Designate a workspace Have a designated workspace and make it functional for you.

It doesn’t interrupt my work routine much because I know where they are and they know where I am, so they can play contently while I accomplish work tasks. [...]

What Our Stress Tells Us About Our Work


By Amber Riggs There are these little markers in my life that let me know when I’m not managing stress well. My patience with my kids tanks. I become too busy to eat. When I get in bed at night, the very act of being still will trigger nervous twitching. I’ll avoid doing things that need to be done and perpetually put them off “until tomorrow”. Instead of going to bed, I will “wind down” by staying up way too late watching a Hallmark movie. Once I get in bed, my social media feeds will be treated to a few extra [...]

Three Ways We Get Vocation Wrong


By Amber Riggs A huge chunk of your life revolves around your work. It isn’t just clocking in, clocking out, and everything between. You plan your entire day around your work. It determines when you wake up, when you go to sleep, when you eat, and when you play. When it comes to being a Christian who works, we find ourselves asking questions about how our job fits in with God’s plan for our lives. My job doesn’t give me any sense of purpose; does God care? Am I doing what God wants me to do? or maybe How can I serve God more when I [...]

Our Work and Our Worship: Labor Day Reflections for Committed Disciples


By Whaid Rose Talk of Floyd Martin, a Georgia mailman, filled the air as some 300 people gathered for the surprise block party planned to mark his retirement! Floyd was retiring after 35 years with the Postal Service, and the people celebrating him lived along the downtown Marietta route Floyd worked for the last 20 of those years. To these folks, Floyd was much more than a mailman. Each day he delivered positive energy and encouragement, even feeding the birds and animals as he did his work. So they decorated their mailboxes, raised money for Floyd’s getaway trip to Hawaii, and [...]
