Descrizione

Walking in Faith is a collection of deeply personal stories of struggle and challenge chronicling one persons faith journey through the workplace. The decision to bring your faith to work, to openly proclaim yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ in the marketplace is not an easy decision, but one immensely worth it. As you allow God to transform you through your work, your faith will be stretched and strengthened. This collection of stories is meant to inspire, encourage, and let you know you are not alone.

Thank you

for always encouraging me,

always believing in me,

You are missed.

Your legacy of love lives forever

in those you knew and loved.

I love you,

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3: 23-24

Let all the brothers, however, preach by their deeds.

St. Francis of Assisi

I couldn’t put it down.

Thank you for being so transparent and real.

You touched on so many real, raw and relatable subjects, over and over again!!!

Loved it and renewed my hope that God is in control!!

Patricia Martell, Consultant, WorkLife, Inc.

Shari’s book ministers to people who are hurting in the workplace. It illustrates how their Christian faith can support, guide and give them hope as they navigate difficult situations. I highly recommend this book as a resource for coaches and pastors to share with people who are experiencing these types of challenges.

Nancy Branton, M.A., PCC, CEO of Workplace Coach Institute

Author, speaker and leader Shari J. Harris gives practical and powerful solutions to living the Christian faith authentically on a moment to moment basis. As an employee of one of the most respected corporations in MN, Shari is a leader in the Christian Employee Resource Group (CERG) where she boldly shares her faith in the marketplace. Her words of encouragement express real life experiences at work with honesty and warmth drawing the reader into the stories and then guiding them toward understanding how to apply God’s truths in each situation. The messages in this book give relevance to the challenges and opportunities we face as we seek to live an authentic Christ-centered life with integrity each day.
