SLMAW 015 – Stepping Back From This Podcast


What You’ll Hear:

  • What Changes Are Occurring Effective April 1, 2017
    • Podcast will not be accessible any more through ITunes (this is still uncertain)
    • You can listen to past and previous episodes through www.Soundcloud.com/davehilgendorf or through www.SpiritLedMen.Wordpress.com, the new location for my blog
    • New Episodes will not be released every 2 weeks.  I do not have plans for future episodes at this time though that could change
  • Why I’m Making These Changes
    • My history with marketplace ministry – Raised Lutheran, Engineer, Real Estate, Bankruptcy, Born Again, Started Blogging, Wrote Jesus is at Work, Led Men’s Ministry and FPU, Started Podcast
    • Primary reason for change – I don’t feel I’m in the place of God’s blessing and His will
    • I don’t see fruit from a lot of effort and money
    • I’m not sure I have the right heart and motivation
    • The podcast has not been what I envisioned (every day guys from different occupations)
    • I’m stretched too thin and I don’t want to be an inch deep and a mile wide and need to prioritize
    • Need to devote more time and energy to other priorities
      • Relationship with God
      • Relationship with my family (wife and daughters)
      • Other relationships (friends, co-workers, non-believers)
      • My career
      • Our farm including a blog and other online activities
      • Political interests – COS, Fairtax, Teaparty
      • Ministry – now part-time at church helping as needed
      • Margin – reading, relaxing, enjoying myself, playing tennis and guitar
  • Pause and Maybe the End

  1. Dave, I have certainly enjoyed many of your posts however I do understand the feeling of being in an inch deep and a mile wide and the need for margin. I have been sending out a daily message 7 days a week since 1/1/14 and there are times when I think it might be time better spent. Thanks again for everything and go enjoy life.
