Faith Powered Profession was born from the realization that many women were looking for some guidance as to how to pursue excellence in the workplace while still remaining true to their faith. I explore these topics and share about the importance of our work from a Biblical perspective, suggest some ways to approach challenging situations at work, and encourage women to integrate their faith into all aspects of their lives, including their jobs.
I originally started Elizabeth Knox Online as a blog to encourage and equip women where faith and work intersect. There are so many things to discuss: Theoretical or theological things like: How do we figure out our calling and pursue it? And then really practical things like: How to pick childcare. Or how to pump at work. Or how to deal with temptation when we're traveling for work? We need to figure out how to navigate the waters of being an excellent worker and being true to our faith, and at the same time understand that these things are not mutually exclusive.
I live in Washington, DC with my husband and our band of merry children. I am the founder of MatchPace, where we help organizations reimagine their workday, enabling them to work hard and live well. And I'm the author of Faith Powered Profession, which empowers women to live out their faith and values in the workplace.
