What does it look like to work with a sense of calling and a sense of purpose?
In the video, Kimberly says, “I don’t feel gifted to be a pastor, but I do feel strongly gifted to build homes.” Kimberly’s gift as a contractor is connected to her work calling. She believes that she is being spiritual by following her calling to build homes. She said, “I want my work to be a reflection of my faith in God.”
Kimberly’s calling has two emphases:
- Building high quality relationships with her co-workers and her clients
- Doing excellent construction work
She believes if she stays focused on these two things, she will be living her calling from God.
