Today Stephanie and Jo start to peel away the layers by offering a series of questions to ask and examine to help you get the heart of the question "Should I Stay or Should I Go?"  

Questions to ask:

Is there some toxicity I need to address? Is there something I need to say before I go, or if I say it can I then stay? Do I need to call it out, bring it to the surface or shine a light on it?Am I the person or a person who can do that?

Is there a wounding or am I wounded?

Am I called to what I’m doing?  If I were doing the same thing five years from now, how what I feel about it? Do I see a future here? Do I see opportunities to grow here? Is this environment giving me the tools I need to be developed?

What are the costs of staying or going?

What are my true values in this situation?

Am I looking for a short-cut, eject button or trying to avoid somethingI deeper?

What I am afraid of?

What are the risks?

Who should get my primary loyalty?

What are the culture and values of this place?  What are the culture and values of the person in charge? What is the theological world view of this place?nWhat does that mean for my life?

What’s the issue beneath the issue? 

If I feel a lack of peace, what is the actual core lack of peace about?

God, have you released me from this? Is it now or later?

Today's podcast is brought to you by Jo's new book, "Ready to Rise"
