For most people, the idea of laboring in God's vineyard means volunteering at church or taking a missions trip. The workaday world doesn't count. According to author Vera Jackson, however, this concept needs to change. Everyday jobs are not only a way that God blesses believers, but actually part of his divine plan to expand his kingdom. Packed with examples, real-life stories, and practical tips, this book helps readers grow in righteousness while reaching the lost. When we invite the Holy Spirit to use us on the job to train us in godliness, blessings will flow and the kingdom will grow. Chapters conclude with hands-on tools such as self-evaluation sheets, reflection questions, and memory verses.

From the Back Cover:

God is seeking disciples He can use in the workplace. Searching for the "perfect" job, Vera Jackson found herself unfulfilled. Where's the light in this company? she wondered. But when she cried out to God, He showed her that she was the light--to carry His presence with her into the marketplace and be a blessing. Now an accomplished executive, Vera Jackson openly shares her past failures, adversities and accomplishments, while providing a practical strategy to help you be God's ambassador in the workplace. Here you will find answers to many questions, including: How can I discern and take advantage of unique ministry opportunities? How do I stay focused on God's purposes during job trials and distractions? How can I pursue professional excellence while maintaining uncompromising devotion to God? How can I reach out to my co-workers with the Gospel while still honoring my company? Whether you are a cashier or a business executive, you will greatly benefit from Vera's proven insights and biblically grounded advice.
