  • The Importance of Internships

    One of the best ways for students to gain skills, experience, and a network of professionals is to take on an internship. Now, not all of these are paid, but even if there is not compensation, the experience and connections could be well worth it. It may be the only time working for free is a good idea!  They vary widely and college credit can sometimes be earned. For students s...

  • How Important Is Your College Degree?

    A degree is simply the springboard of steps toward a career that ultimately glorifies God. Settling into a career  is often a journey, not the direct result of a particular major. One job leads to another and God opens doors. Bob Dickie, Crown’s President and author of Love Your Work, explains that, “We don’t have time to waste wandering down endless paths in search of our calli...

  • Avoiding Student Debt

    I have four sons who have all attended, or are attending, college. Higher education is expensive!!

In 2016, the average student graduated owing more than $37,000. This kind of burden is not the way you want to start your career...

  • Working With Your Spouse

    The late Larry Burkett, Crown’s founder, believed that an excellent wife, as described in Proverbs 31, should be her husband’s primary earthly counselor. The same is true for a husband - as the spiritual leader, he should be the first to advise his wife. Spouses should be primary earthly counselors for one another. Larry observed that in a family business, the one spouse can be ei...

  • Do You Like Your Job?

    The ancient philosopher Aristotle said “Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.” When we enjoy our work we tend do it better than the one who does not. Great satisfaction is found when our gifts and talents are put into action. If our purpose on earth is to serve God by glorifying Him in all that we do, then our vocation is a platform for that purpose. In fact, we hav...

  • Building a Reputation that Lasts

    Are you full of good intentions but never make headway? Henry Ford said, "You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.” Our careers are highly dependent on the reputations we build...and our reputations are established by our priorities.

  • 3 Ways Pride is Killing Your Budget (and How to Stop It)

    Andrew Murray said, “Pride must die in you, or nothing of heaven can live in you.” Pride is a spiritual stronghold; a tool of the enemy used to set itself up against the knowledge of God. It controls, it entangles, and renders believers ineffective in their witness. Beth Moore addressed it in her book, Praying God’s Word. She personifies pride as someone who cheats you of your ...

  • Resisting Temptation

    Paul taught Timothy that those who want to get rich fall into temptation and snares. Paul knew the heart of man. Like the world, Christians rationalize indulgence. Our affluence has distorted our priorities and we compromise truth in the deception of self-fulfillment. Paul told the Corinthians “No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithf...

  • Why Stewardship Requires Humility

    In Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis said, “Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man... It is the comparison that makes you proud: the pleasure of being above the rest.” What convicting truth! Pride is one of the deadly sins and it's no question as to why. Stewardship requires humility.

  • Becoming a Cheerful Giver

    Randy Alcorn says, “Gaze upon Christ long enough, and you’ll become more of a giver. Give long enough, and you’ll become more like Christ.” God’s Word describes the tithe as a testimony to God’s ownership. Our tithe is the seed we plant in God’s garden. He takes it and multiplies it. The amount of the tithe is not important to God; He owns it all. But the amount IS important to...

    Charles Spurgeon said, “If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled.” Contentment is an attitude of knowing God’s plan for your life, having the conviction to live it, and believing that God’s peace is greater than the world’s problems.

    Many people struggle with fear, especially when it comes to their finances. Attitudes of fear and anxiety over our money, relationships, and circumstances can be a sign of bondage.   Faith is the opposite of fear. Hebrews 11 defines faith as “the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen.” If we had no needs, we would have no need of faith. But, our pr...

  • Lessons From My Dad on Hard Work

    My father taught me the value of hard work. He set me up in the parakeet business when I was just 15 years old. At one point I averaged 1,000 birds per month that I sold to pet stores. I later worked in the oil fields and gave my Dad my checks to save for me. It was dangerous and dirty work. But, I survived. At the time I only knew to treat people right and make my employer glad...
