A couple of years ago I joined a startup network of Christian bloggers. I wasn’t sure if I would get anything out of this thing, or if I’d be able to add any value to it either. As it turns out, it was one of the best things that I’ve ever done as a blogger. I’ve discovered an online community where not only am I encouraged by some of the best Christian content on the web, but where I have an opportunity to be able to bless others in many ways.

I’d like for you to meet, a part of is a ministry of the Foundations for Laity Renewal. We seek to connect people with the faith that supports and sustains all that we do. That’s why it is the high calling of our daily work. We believe God cares about our work. And we believe Christians are called to glorify God through their work. For us, work embraces all aspects and activities of daily living—including home, community, leisure, as well as occupation.

Recently I’ve taken on a new role with the Editorial Team as the network’s Social Media Editor. In this role I’ll be working on the network’s Twitter accounts (@thehighcalling and @highcallingblog), encouraging discussion on the Facebook page (, and sharing occasional posts on the website about engaging community online through social media.

The rest of the Editorial Team is made up of some amazing bloggers, authors, and people who take seriously the high calling of their daily work. And as we develop our team, each of us have been introducing the others on our own blogs, and I’d love to share some of these introductions with you here so that you can get to know this incredible team…

Gordon Atkinson (Real Live Preacher), Founding Editor

Marcus Goodyear (,  Senior Editor

L.L. Barkat (Seedlings in Stone), Managing Editor

Chris Cree (SuccessCREEations), Senior Community Manager

Laura Boggess (The Wellspring), Book Club Convener

Ann Kroeker (, Family Editor

Bradley J. Moore (Shrinking the Camel), Work Editor

Sam Van Eman (New Breed of Advertisers), Culture Editor

And if you want to get to know me a little bit better, then check out these introductions of yours truly through the eyes of others on the Editorial Team…

I encourage you to keep up with what’s happening with the network. I think that you’ll be glad that you did! This is definitely a crew that will inspire you in the high calling of your daily work.
