What if we could resolve the exhausting struggle between work, family, and spiritual life? What if we recognized a deep connection between faith and business? What if biblical values weren’t roadblocks but actually the source of successful business? What if the real goal of business were more noble than maximizing profit? What if we could see our everyday work as having spiritual value? What if we could approach it as ministry? What if it were our calling, a calling as high as that of a pastor or missionary? What if God cared deeply about our work and wanted to be involved? And what if we could even partner with him in our business?
Many of us believe the key to resolving the tension between work and faith lies in a more balanced life. Pursuing balance is important, Eldred explains, but that noble effort still leaves us with compartmentalized lives. We still sense that all those prime hours of our day have little or no spiritual significance.

The Power of Second Chances
It is something that many struggle with and find it hard to get help for. When you are depressed, you can feel so stuck that the future feels hopeless. In this interview Tim shares practical steps on how to make those small steps forward that will bring back hope in your life.
Leaders typically find it hard to admit weakness, be vulnerable and ask for help. Tim shares his inner journey through hell back to a life of joy and fulfillment. After the financial crash of 2008 Tim lost over $55 million in assets as he watched forces beyond his control decimate the company he had built. Tim's identity came from his role as a CEO, his view of his competence and how he was seen by his peers. He had been so focused on his identity and business that his marriage fell apart as well. Feeling that he had lost everything there were two distinct points where Tim considered just ending it all. This journey that Tim went through has become an incredible book that I know will help millions.
