Industry Spotlight – Kyle Dowden

What is your life verse and why?
Galatians 1:10 – I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.

It is super easy to get caught up in pleasing those around you. Sometimes, it can be praised to please your spouse, boss or a friend. Other times, especially in the age of social media and cancel culture, it can become super-unhealthy. What’s interesting is that Paul takes his eyes off of family, friends, and culture. His sole focus is on winning God’s approval.

When my focus in on God, I have clarity of vision, and I can better serve Him and those He has asked me to serve.

Android, because it is super-customizable.

Pizza toppings?
Pepperoni and sausage.
