Mike Hayes left a promising career in sports radio to discover what God wanted him to do. In sharing his journey he takes readers into career questions that have spiritual answers:
- Who am I — really?
- What am I here for?
- How do I find the work I can do best?
- What is the meaning of right usefulness?
- Can I find happiness in my work, or is it my job to bring happiness to work?
- How is the difference between doing and being essential to loving work?
Loving Work is at once the story of Mike Hayess passage to a better place and a spiritual roadmap for anyone of any age to love loving work.
