Work and Play with Nancy Ray

Nov 2, 2022

“Priorities are what we do, everything else is just talk.” I love that phrase. My husband works for an organization called C12, and they say that all the time, and it just re-centers you and re-grounds you on the fact that what we do matters. It's not what we say, it's what we do.

I had a hard time coming up with the title of this episode and I landed on “Let Your Yes Be Yes,” because that's the biblical truth I just kept coming back to, but I also thought about naming it “Saying vs. Doing” or “Teaching vs. Modeling.” The heart of what I want to talk about today is simply the idea that we can say a lot and we can have a lot of great ideas, but really our lives come down to what we do. My encouragement to you today is simply to let your yes be yes.
