A Christian Approach to Getting Stuff Done

About the Blog

Welcome to Redeeming Productivity

Hey, my name is Reagan Rose and I have a bit of an obsession—I love all things productivity.

I’m also a Christian and I think all believers should think about how we can better steward the time, resources, and lives the Lord has given us. This blog is my effort to encourage other Christ-followers to pursue Christian productivity.

Redeeming Productivity is a blog containing articles, book reviews, and tool recommendations for Christians who want to get more done, and get it done like Christians. With a focus on developing a theology of motivation rooted in the Word of God, I strive to create content that will help you accomplish more in the right way, for the right reasons, to glorify the right One.

The Whole Sin of the Half-Distracted Mind

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how it has seemed harder and harder for me to carve out the same amount of focussed time of prayer and Bible study in the morning than it used to be. Certainly, I am weak and easily distracted. But it is no help that an entire economy exists to deliberately distract me by twinkling shiny bits of content in my eyes with the goal of gaining my attention so...

How to Wake up Early and Not Feel Tired

I almost never wake up to an alarm. In fact, I stopped setting an alarm a long time ago. What’s more, I wake up alarmingly early—usually between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. No, I don’t have insomnia. Yes, I am employed. And, no, I don’t go through the day feeling like a tired zombie. The funny thing is, this isn’t actually a very difficult habit to cultivate. What follows is my simple...

The Arrogance of Ministry Burn-Out (Part 2)

ministry burn-out

In the last post I wrote about an issue which has been termed “ministry burn-out,” that point when a person involved in ministry becomes so overwhelmed that their motivation to continue in ministry is exhausted. I pointed out that ministry burn-out is really a problem for all believers not just pastors since we are all called to minister. I also wrote about the problems I see in how...

The World Health Organization announced this week that it is updating its handbook, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), to include an updated definition for “Burn-out.” Burn-out will now be classified as a syndrome tied to “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” Specifically, they have limited their definition of burn-out to only...

Productivity & The Gospel (Part 2): It’s About Good Works

We’ve been exploring the different phases of man’s relationship to work—work in the sense of job, labor, or vocation. Man has had varying relationships to work from creation, to work after the fall, to work in light of the gospel of Jesus Christ. In the last installment of this series we began to look at how the gospel changes our view of work. Particularly, we were concerned with whether...

Productivity & The Gospel (Part 1) – Is Christian Productivity Legalistic?

We’ve been talking about God’s grand plan for man and work. Previously, I wrote about God’s good design for work in Work is Not a Dirty Word. Then, in No TED Talks in Eden, we looked at how the curse affected work and how that makes attention to productivity even necessary. Now, I’d like to focus on the relationship between personal productivity and the gospel. I have...

How I Use the Bullet Journal Method to Steward My Attention

This week’s post on the Bullet Journal system is written by Emily Maxson. Emily graduated from Hillsdale College with a B.A. in History and an addiction to research. When not occupied with housewifery, she maintains interests in theology, education, and vintage jazz. If you, like Emily, are a Christian with a penchant for productivity and are interested in guest writing for Redeeming...

No TED Talks in Eden

In the last post, “Work is Not a Dirty Word“, we noted the wrong-headedness of believers assuming that just because it is difficult that work is, therefore, a consequence of the Fall. Work was created by God as very good. Man worked with joy and pleasure before the fall, and in the eternal state, he will once again enjoy the unfrustrated, painless joy of work as it was intended. But...
