Gene Veith's Loving God With All Your Mind

If someone, whom was not familiar with my profession or my worldview, asked me how I integrate my worldview/faith within my profession, the best advice that I can give them is to take every aspect of life one day at a time. That is basically the emphasis of the the faith and learning foundation…that in order for everything to fall into place within our lives, we (as Christians) must be able to have the patience along with our faith in order to learn how to have an substantial relationship with God, our coworkers, and also within ourselves.
