The Unexpected!
👋 Hey Purpose Enthusiasts! Have you experienced God in an unusual way? Today I share how I saw God's Hand moving within a situation I didn't think to pray about. WHY? Because I thought it was too small of a problem. I hope as you listen and watch that you are motivated to pray bigger prayers for deliverance, mercy, wisdom, and grace.

Undeniable Proof That You Need a Meeting Agenda
Show Notes:  👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, You may think that you can wing it and put a meeting together on the fly, but I haven’t seen that work well, and it ends up being a meeting to plan the next meeting. That is exhausting causes an aversion to group discussion. If we are praying for the Lord to help us number our days to use our time wisely (Psalm 90:12), that needs to blanket everything we do.  Action Check List Create and delegate action items. Organize your meeting action items in one to-do list. Stay on top of the things you promised as a leader. Make sure everyone’s contact information is up to date and schedule your next meeting.

Your Mission and Vision Make a Statement!
Show Notes: Mission & Vision Statement 👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, We are continuing the conversation and undergoing self-examination. Today we tackle the topic of leadership as a mentality and approach it from the point of service. Trusting God to transform us from the inside out is also a process. I hope you will journal and keep your Bible close as you listen. I pray something you hear will spark new insight and cause you to take action. A Mission Statement is a short statement of why an organization exists, what its overall goal is, identifying the goal of its operations: what kind of product or service it provides, its primary customers or market, and its geographical region of operation.    A Vision Statement is an inspirational statement of an idealistic emotional future of a company or group. Vision describes the basic human emotion that a founder intends to be experienced by the people the organization interacts with, it grounds the group so it can actualize some existential impact on the world.      Action Steps:   1.

A Beginners Guide: Defining Leadership(style) for Pastors
Show Notes: 3 Inquiries to Inspire Change: Ways to Thrive in Leadership 👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, We are continuing the conversation and undergoing self-examination. Today we tackle the topic of leadership as a mentality and approach it from the point of service. Trusting God to transform us from the inside out is also a process. I hope you will journal and keep your Bible close as you listen. I pray something you hear will spark new insight and cause you to take action.  "Love that goes upward is worship, love that goes outward is affection, love that stoops down is grace." - Donald Barnhouse Fear, pride, arrogance, and even anger restrain us from becoming servant leaders.  Those emotions keep us complacent because we are unwilling to listen to hard criticism or negative feedback. The truth only adds fuel to the emotional fire. One way to combat that is to acknowledge the problem and ask God through prayer to break the chains. (It may require fasting and praying.) Challenging Action Step: How can you be intentional about regularly serving others? Remember, servant leaders, require approval from one source, God. They enjoy pleasing the Lord through their actions, deeds and give Him praise for the opportunity. Let us all strive to be more like Jesus and challenge the Adversary's lies.  Points to Ponder from last week's episode "You Are What You Make"  1. What do we do when someone asks for a favor? 2. How do we respond to interruptions?  3. Why are we continuing the same patterns of behavior and expecting change? Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." www.TorrieSlaughter.com www.OurGivenPurpose.com     Download the Our Given Purpose App!

{REWIND} Meanwhile: A Public Response to Internal Timing
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!! Let's Review-Reflect- and Reorganize together! 🔻🔻🔻🔻 "In this episode, we are going to dive deeper into the meanwhile… What is happening outside our immediate orbit? Why does the Word of God always remind us to look beyond the present circumstance? We know our timing is not the Lord’s. Ecclesiastes 3:11 lays out this profound wisdom: ”He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.” "God's truth causes conflict. It is the tension at the intersection of the cross and begs us to choose a righteous response." ~Torrie Slaughter 🔴 Tune In to watch"Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast & Internet Show" 🔴 Scriptures to Study: Genesis 37:1-11, Genesis 37:36, Deuteronomy 28:13, Mark 10:45, Genesis 18:7, Genesis 24:21, Genesis 28:10, Genesis 30:36, Genesis 31:19, Genesis 37:36 "Meanwhile the Midianites had sold him in Egypt to Potiphar, an officer of Pharaoh, the captain of the guard." Genesis 37:36 This Mentoring Session: Meanwhile: A Public Response to Internal Timing, will take you on an adventure. One that I pray will lead you to meditate on God’s Holy Word! He is the giver of life, the epitome of love. He drives out darkness, gives hope to the hopeless, He sent the Holy Spirit to live inside us. God interacts with His creation; however, everyone will not experience His healing power. We can continue to intercede on their behalf. Pray for those who are suffering from the broken godly relationship. Send a text message reminding them that they can receive the gift of salvation and there is nothing they have to do but accept Jesus into their heart. You caring about the spirit of that person could make the difference. Don’t be afraid to reach out and be bold with your faith. 🔻🔻🔻🔻 🔴DOWNLOAD, Tag a friend, leave a review, share on your platforms!

Working with a Smarter System!
👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, Today we briefly discuss the S.M.A.R.T system attributed to Gary Doran. (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, Timely) Here are your notes to begin your journaling process:  Clarity: Do you know what works best for you? We all have responsibilities that presently need our attention. With your obligations in mind, take control of your approach to them. Scott Reed wrote- "This one step—choosing a goal and sticking to it—changes everything." Organize: Do you use a calendar? If not, I want to offer this quote from Maria Robinson, "Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending." Whatever you started doing but didn't finish, it's ok. Begin now and get help if possible. Prepare: Aristotle wrote - We are what we repeatedly do. 4 Ways to Implement a Smarter System 1. Strategize with God! Sit down and lay everything before Him. Let God establish your plans. 2. Break your day into bite-sized pieces. Don't try to tackle massive projects all at once. Set your phone timer or alarm remain intentionally focused. 3. Books, Music, and Podcasts centered on the areas you want to develop. Podcasts are free to listen to and provide a wealth of knowledge. 4. Stop being reactive in the morning. Give God praise and adoration before picking up your phone to check messages, emails, or other notifications. Be proactive by aligning with God's purpose for your day..

The Possibility of Maybe...
👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, Today we dive into serendipity, fate, destiny, and how it is linked to clarity, organization, and preparation.  Idea to Ponder: Think about the difference between distraction and interruption. Pray for clarity so you can react with wisdom.  Distraction is the process of diverting the attention of an individual or group from a desired area of focus and thereby blocking or diminishing the reception of desired information. Interruption or interrupt to cause an activity or event to stop briefly: it's an intrusion or intermission. Main Take-Away in this Mentoring Session "The possibility of maybe is the gift of hope. We can excitedly expect a change and place our trust in the God of the universe by accepting that He is the Author of our lives." T.S. Who will you S.L.A.P right now? Join the conversation!

Reverse Engineer: Real Lessons from Fake Success
👋 Hey Purpose Talkers, In our last season, we acknowledged that we need to say 'good-bye.' For those who believe God uses everything to teach and correct, our next step is obvious. How can you take your knowledge and produce real results? I thought I was successful because I finally kept a plant alive. I researched, watered, and even talked to a fake plant for six months. LOL However, instead of growing bitter, I prayed for wisdom. As you listen to today's mentoring session, think about your fake success. Pause, reflect, ask, and yield to the Holy Spirit to acknowledge your foolishness. We can make small changes to transition to beneficial outcomes of empowerment.  What can you expect this season? 1. Clarify using scripture, prayer, and journaling. 2. Organizing our thoughts by silencing the lies and listening to the truth. 3. Preparing to practice our new approach to life in conversation and action. In this Mentoring Session Journal and Self-examination Prompts to Clarify, Organize, and Prepare Am I focused on articulating my vision and pursuing avenues to drive my mission? Are my ideas, ingenuity, and authenticity creating a service to the community? When I encounter defeat, do I continue to innovate? Quotes: "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.” ~ Maya Angelou "I want to put a ding in the universe." ~ Steve Jobs Join the conversation!

*SECOND LISTEN* Speak Less: Decluttering Your Noisy Environment
🔴 Hello Purpose Talkers! We are enjoying our renewal, review, and reflection as we prepare for season 9! Thank you for your messages, prayers, and excitement as we gear up to dive deeper. Don't forget to tell a friend about this digital space AND  🔴 Download Our Given Purpose the Podcast to your digital library! 🔴 In this 'second listen' mentoring session: It's time to slow down and appreciate your surroundings by listening. Preparing for the next phase or faith step means undergoing self-evaluation. In today's episode, we will cover a few ways: become a better listener and declutter your space by turning down the visual noise. What is strife? It is conflict, contention, to be in disagreement over fundamental issues. If we feel friction in specific areas of our homes or other places, we avoid them simply because we don't want to deal with the junk. That can be true of people's attitudes, but let's focus on correcting ourselves first. The compound definition of hearing and listening is: to be informed of the words and tone of voice as you take action by responding appropriately. There isn't a time limit, and we should embrace the silence no matter how uncomfortable it may feel. That silence allows us to process, pray, and yield to the Holy Spirit. There is truth in quiet moments.

*SECOND LISTEN* Succeeding With Help: Just Ask the Question
🔴 Hello Purpose Talkers! Thank you for taking a second listen and comparing notes. :) 🔴This Mentoring Session was the Season 8 Premier and it came from a personal place. I didn't like to ask for help. But God changed my perspective and showed me the benefits of working within a community.  There are many reasons we don't ask for help. In today's podcast I discuss a few. The first, self-esteem: Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself (for example, "I am unloved," "I am worthy") as well as emotional states, such as triumph, despair, pride, and shame. So what does the Bible tell us, and how can we begin elevating our concept of worth? I want to draw your attention to Ephesians 4 verse 25. I believe self-esteem comes from the love we are to have for each other. Equality in the body leads to tremendous growth and a unified message from the church, which is us within the body of Christ. Ephesians 4:25 AMP. Therefore, rejecting all falsehood [whether lying, defrauding, telling half-truths, spreading rumors, any such as these], SPEAK TRUTH EACH ONE WITH HIS NEIGHBOR, for we are all parts of one another [and we are all parts of the body of Christ]. Speak truth! As you meditate on the Word of God, take time to let the tension rise and embrace it. If we minimize who we are, we minimize the God we worship.

And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you." It is irresponsible of us as Christ followers to seek revenge by serving up what we consider a dose of someone's medicine. If we practice being little monsters, being a little petty here and there it will snowball. Let's recognize our faults and extend grace. We use 2 Thessalonians 3:13, Matthew 25:15, Luke 16:10, Galatians 6:9 as ways to combat our monster flesh Download the Our Given Purpose App! Absolutely Free for all smartphones!

Cycles: How Decreasing Your Output Increases Productivity
🔴 Tune In Every 4th Friday At 7:00 AM, EST to watch!  "Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast & Internet Show" Cycles: How Decreasing Your Output Increases Productivity Bible Passages: John 15:1-2, Luke 5:30-32, 1 John 3:8, Psalm 119:105 🔴 Points to Ponder  How do we define output?
