Do you want your kids to be more purposeful and engaged with their work when they’re adults? Kids today are passively taught that work is bad and should be avoided. But our guest, Jordan Raynor, believes we can teach future generations that their work matters at an early age. His new book, The Creator in You, helps kids recognize the value of what they do in the world. In this episode, you’ll learn how we can teach kids to be purposeful with their time, as well as how to manage our own time as adults.
Jordan Raynor helps Christians respond to the radical, biblical truth that their work matters for eternity. He does this through his bestselling books (The Creator in You, Redeeming Your Time, Master of One, and Called to Create), podcast (The Call to Mastery), and weekly devotional (The Word Before Work)—content that has served millions of Christ-followers in every country on earth.
In addition to his writing, Jordan serves as the Executive Chairman of Threshold 360, a venture-backed tech startup which Jordan previously ran as CEO following a string of successful ventures of his own. Jordan has twice been selected as a Google Fellow and served in The White House under President George W. Bush.
A sixth-generation Floridian, Jordan lives in Tampa with his wife and their three young daughters. The Raynors are proud members of The Church at Odessa.
