More than an average author of a how-to-succeed book, Ana Mollinedo Mims is on a mission. A devout Christian herself, Ana has blended what has brought her to the top of her game, as an executive at a Fortune 500 company, with the faith–based philosophy she believes is the foundation for her finding meaning, and thus success, in all aspects of her professional life.
The principles Ana discusses in this book–faith, integrity, humility, prayer, forgiveness, stewardship, and legacy–are concepts which have carried her well into a very distinguished career. They are principles that underlie a spirit–led career she believes is possible for anyone wanting to give purpose to the single most time–consuming aspect of all our lives: work.
Keeping The Faith looks at some of the common struggles all people face at various stages of their working lives–helping readers to remain true to what they deeply believe. From her own experiences, Ana shows us that when difficulties and doubts are confronted using her unique take on spiritual pragmatism, each difficulty can extend itself into success, growth, and a clearer understanding of one's self, and one's own sense of professional purpose.
Ana believes that the answers or the outcomes in each case will become clearer, more deeply satisfying, more "right," when one is able to shift one's line of sight, and consider what it means to blend a working life together with devoutly spiritual one.
