The StoryField

LIFE is complex. The frustrating issues never seem to stop. BUSINESS is hard. Right answers are not easily found and making progress is difficult. Living a life of FAITH can feel complicated. Your relationship with God may feel broken. You may be uninspired in your faith. It becomes lonely. It is discouraging when MOVEMENT in your life, business, or faith has stopped.Positive, encouraging, and inspiring stories seem to be hard to find. Most of the information circulating is negative. It shouldn’t be this way. Why we created this: Stop discouragement - Listen to encouraging stories of normal people dealing with the same problems. Be inspired - in life and business. Take a step forward - Ignite a spark in your faith.

The StoryField #63: The One with Dr. Ben Edwards about The Sickest People in the World.
Dr. Ben Edwards was part of the medical “system” for years until he got fired after God completely disrupted his thinking.Before the disruption - he followed suit. He played by the rules. He had great success in everyone’s eyes (he even was featured on the front page of the Washington Post).God didn’t want Dr. Ben in that model, though, and started to unravel everything by leaving Ben a copy of “Radical” by David Platt on an empty bus seat in the middle of nowhere in Zambia.Shortly after, his physician’s assistant completely reversed his Celiac disease after meeting with a physician from Amarillo, Texas who thought completely differently than Ben did about the body.Years later, Dr. Ben is operating 100% differently and has seen many people’s bodies heal after learning the truth and receiving a little guidance.Dr. Ben founded Veritas Medical, a medical clinic with locations in Lubbock, Abilene, and San Angelo which offer alternative/integrative medical options and Veritas Wellness, an education and support platform to help guide people in gaining knowledge of the American diet and lifestyle choices.You can listen to Dr. Ben’s podcast “You’re the Cure” on apple podcast and all interviews on YouTube through the Veritas Medical channel.

Bob’s company uses about 50,000 gallons of paint each year but that wasn’t always the case.  He has learned to partner with God and use a few “rocket science” principles to grow his painting company which started out of a Volkswagen bug with surf racks to one in the top 1% of its industry in the nation handling huge projects like stadiums, hospitals, and airports.Bob is the author of several books; has a consulting business; and actively serves as a board member for many nonprofits, churches, and ministries.If you want to know how hearing from God works in business- you must listen to this episode.  You will love hearing how to partner with God in your business and watch God breakthrough for you time and time again.Oh, did we mention Bob is the co-host of a podcast with Shawn Bolz called “Exploring the Marketplace” – currently in the top 100 of all Christian podcasts?PS.      Interested in reading one of Bob’s life-changing books?  Click below and grab a copy today:ShortcutsBusiness of HonorWired to Hear Support the Show.
