What refuels you for your work?

I returned home last night from the very inspirational, very informational She Speaks conference.

Each year this conference refuels my passion for ministry.

Every summer I come home exhausted with a to-do list I can't wait to start on.

I'm realizing how important it's been to have something built into my year that refuels my passion for ministry. And I'm thinking it would be wise to build such a thing into each week. 

Of course I can't attend a conference every week so I'll have to find something simpler but still effective. 

What is your work? ... a business? ministry work? housekeeping? child-raising?

And what is it that reliably refuels your passion for your work?

If you don't know, aim to find out in order to avoid burn out.


  1. Hi Rachel!
    I have a really similar post that I wrote on my blog today. The "to do" list waiting on me feels endless. I would say the thing that refuels me for work is finding ways to connect daily with other women who are passionate about business. One of those ways is networking online and in person.

    Thank you for your encouragement in the elevator on Sat or Sun (I can't remember which day). I was the one with the #4 voice in the Tom Davis session. LOL!

    1. Absolutely, I remember you Kendra. And I stopped by your post to leave a comment. :)

  2. I have been out of the work force since January. At first, I had a really hard time being home because my children are all grown, but my dream has always been to write, even though I have been blogging for 2 years and did a printed newsletter for 3 years, but the door to "real" writing hasn't happened until the last 3 or 4 months. I know I am exactly where God wants me to be right now and I am thankful that He is opening the doors for more writing opportunities. I love to write. Thanks for the great posts.


Chime in.
