At Maranatha, we have a good number of women who are full-time stay-at-home moms as well as small business owners. One such sister is Carolyn Hoerl -- wife, mother of twin girls and owner of Two Sparrows Headbands. As part of our "Faith that Works" interview series, I talked to her about what life is like balancing motherhood while owning a business -- for which she makes all of her goods -- and how she hopes to glorify God in her work. It was a joy to learn about her passion to be creative, a reflection of our very creative God. I also learned the meaning behind the name of her shop, which gave me a glimpse into her life and her trust in the Lord. I hope this encourages you as much as it encouraged me.
This marks the first interview we’ve ever done through GraceNotes and the first interview segment of our “Faith that Works” series.
Meet Christina Munoz, wife of Ronnie Munoz, mother of 2 beautiful children, and attorney at law.
Being a new parent myself, I originally wanted to interview her to gain some perspective on how God works through her at her firm, but also how she balances everything as a working mother. I came away extremely encouraged and blessed by how disciplined and how focused she is on her responsibilities and her faith!
Without further ado, here is our first “Faith that Works” interview with Christina Munoz.
Interviewer: Edward Yip
Welcome back to "Faith that Works." In our first post, we introduced the series and explored why we need to broaden our thinking on our work. We left off with the question of how we can better integrate our work to our faith, how we can enrich our paradigm and make it more robust, more biblical. What is the meaning of our work? How do the details of our daily grind fit into God’s world, into his Kingdom; how do they relate to the gospel of the crucified and risen Jesus? Let's take up where we left off, and start looking for answers.
The GraceNotes team has been on hiatus for a bit, but it's not for naught! We've been hard at work planning our next series, which we're really excited about! Our first blog series was a study on lust (available here). This next series will focus on a topic that's universally important — the topic of work. We're calling the series "Faith that Works."
