TJ Tison is a business leader, strategic adviser, and change agent within the small business sector. Passionate about empowering women to live and work with purpose and kingdom fruitfulness, TJ shares how we can make a difference inside and outside of the workplace, too!
Introduction to TJ Tison (1:45)
Carrie and TJ met at a Christian in Media event and reconnected at a series event Carrie led all about learning how to podcast. Upon meeting each other, they felt an immediate connection and hearing what God was doing in each of their lives inspired them. TJ has been married for almost 28 years, has two grown children, started a business which helps other businesses grow, and also works for Working Women of Faith. This business organization she works with helps women get real about their faith in the workplace.
Killing Wonder Woman Book (5:30)
Killing Wonder Woman is a book about setting weary women free to win at work and to soar in their faith. There are a ton of resources on how to be a godly wife and mother but not so many resources on how to be a godly worker. While TJ’s motivation to write this book came from her own desire to figure out how God wanted her to go about faith within the workplace, she also wanted to create a tool for women to discover who God created them to be and not who everyone expects them to be. There is so much freedom understanding how God wired us and this is a book that can help significantly with that. Interested in purchasing this book? Click here!
Grounded in Truth (8:00)
It’s so important to be grounded and rooted in our identity in Christ! If we are not rooted in who God says we are, that is setting ourselves up for coming into agreement of what is not real truth. Being reminded of who we are on a daily basis is a worthwhile investment.
Christ Identity (8:45)
Who Christ made us to be and His plans for us are so much bigger than we can think or imagine. We encourage you to hold onto that truth, friend!
God’s Girl (11:00)
We don’t have to be like anyone else, we just get to be who God created us to be. You are unique, special, valued, and adored. Not only will God use the hard work you put in working on identity for the good of yourself, but he’ll also use it for the good of others!
Made to Thrive (12:15)
We’re made to thrive in all kinds of life circumstances. Jesus came not to make bad people good, but to make dead people alive. There is a joy we receive that surpasses understanding through Christ Jesus. He came so we might have life and have it to the fullest.
2nd Corinthians 10:13 (13:45)
2nd Corinthians 10:13 says, “We will not boast about things done outside our area of authority. We will boast only about what has happened within the boundaries of the work God has given us, which includes our working with you”. Paul the apostle seemed to be one who cared more about what God thought, than the opinion of others. Carrie shares how important it is to not compare ourselves to others, rather to focus on what God has called us to do and obey.
The Comparison Trap (14:45)
The comparison trap is something that can trap women from walking out their full identity in Christ. Tj shares some of her experience in this and believes that God has equipped her to be a teacher in unique ways, not needing to look the same or to compare herself to other teachers. When TJ realized she didn’t have to look like everyone else as a teacher, she received so much freedom. When we know it’s all about Jesus and not us, that’s where true transformation happens!
Different Giftings (18:00)
We all have different gifting’s and purposes in this life! We need to be mindful of not comparing but rather spending that time to seek God on what those giftings are.
His Promises are True (20:20)
When God gives us a promise and calls us to something, He is the fulfiller of those promises. Our job is to trust God, obey, and go! Let’s be cautious to not try and fulfill those promises on our own time frame. It is His strength, not ours that gets us through each day.
Intentional Discipline (22:30)
Carrie shares what she’s been learning when it comes to making sure her heart is set in the right posture before the Lord. Often times we can go about our day missing God through it all. It’s so much better to stay focused on God and His intentions. One way we can do this is by being in God’s word, consuming it, and speaking in conversation with the Holy Spirit throughout the entire day.
Abide in Him (23:45)
Apart from God, we can do nothing. How amazing is it that the God of the universe wants to spend time with us?
Abundant Living (26:00)
We carry the spirit of God with us everywhere we go. When we walk out our faith every moment of our lives, this is true and abundant living!
