Description

Most people never give themselves permission or know how to chase their big ambitions. Our framework helps you discover, declare, and realize yours so you can have a fulfilling life and impact the world for good.

Episode Date
Philip Yancey - Putting Faith Back Together
00:33:09

If you’ve participated in a community of faith before, you’ve probably quickly realized what most people eventually discover- it’s filled with a bunch of imperfect people. Whether you go to a megachurch or a local community church, it’s not uncommon for us to have experiences that get us more than a little off-kilter and disoriented about our faith. Sometimes, we can even get the wires all crossed and mistake who God is with what people speaking in His name do. 

The question is, how do we think through our faith and our relationship to the church well? How can we integrate our experiences and rediscover a faith in God that’s marked by love and grace?

I doubt there’s anyone who can speak more wisely about that than Philip Yancey. 

Philip Yancey has authored over 25 books, in which he has wrestled with God, with the Church, and with fellow believers. After surviving a church background of what he now calls “toxic faith,” he ultimately came to know a God of grace and beauty. With a journalistic, story-telling style, he invites readers to accompany him as he probes the deepest mysteries of the Christian faith, and challenges readers to live as followers of Jesus.

Many have done so. His books have sold more than 15 million copies in English, and have been translated into 40 languages worldwide. Philip’s bestselling titles include What’s So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew. His most recent book is a memoir, Where the Light Fell, released by Convergent Books on October 5th.

Philip Yancey and his wife lived in downtown Chicago before moving to the foothills of Colorado, where they enjoy mountain climbing, skiing, wildlife, and many other delights of the Rocky Mountains.

Living a focused, engaged life of love, adventure, and impact shouldn't be a mystery.

It's what we're all wired for, it's what we all long for. But, it's not the norm. From all the places I've traveled to and the people I've met, I know that most people don't experience that kind of life. They feel...

Like they're missing out on a different life, a life that others seem to experience.

That it should've all just worked out by now, but it hasn't.

Frankly, like they're languishing- and this must be as good as it gets. 

But, there's so much more...

That's why we started putting these digital courses together. I can't travel everywhere, and not everyone can travel to me. But, what if there was a way to share life together and walk through these simple ideas I've been learning?

Before, we've released these courses one at a time. Then we'd close the registration. But through the pandemic, we learned that a LOT of people want to keep growing, and they're looking for a framework they can trust. 

So, we put them all together- 6 interactive digital courses. Two specifically designed to help you identify and unleash your big ambitions. One for budding authors. Another for speakers. A course for your family. A course for your career. With more coming in the future.

Levi Lusko - Rediscovering Childlike Faith
00:29:35

With all of the serious things happening in the world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or even bummed out. It’s hard to go through your normal routines and carry out your obligations while carrying the stress of the world on your shoulders. Sometimes, if you’re like me, you feel a level of anxiety to fix everything, or at least do something heroic to make a big splash and try to change where everything is headed.

But God isn’t asking us to be a hero necessarily, he’s asking us to participate. What’s the best way to jump in? With the same playful, open-hearted attitude a kid would have. To show up, ready to play, willing to say yes to the adventure God has for us. 

This week on the Dream Big Podcast, we invited my friend Levi Lusko to share his recent children’s book and the message behind it we all need to hear.

Levi Lusko is the founder and lead pastor of Fresh Life Church, located in Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Utah and everywhere online. He is the bestselling author of “Through the Eyes of a Lion,” “Swipe Right,” and “I Declare War.”  

Levi also travels the world speaking about Jesus. Through television, online streaming, and Levi and his wife Jennie’s bestselling books, their ministry reaches around the world. They enjoy family days, getting outside, good coffee and sharing new experiences. The Lusko family includes one son: Lennox, and four daughters: Alivia, Daisy, Clover, and Lenya, who is in Heaven.

John Mark Comer - The Flag in the Sand
00:38:06

Sometimes, without realizing it, we can find ourselves off track from the life we’re meant to live. Or, to put it another way, we wake up one day with a sense that we’re living someone else’s life; we’re in the wrong story.

Maybe you might even say it’s a good story- it’s just not the right one for you. Most of us didn’t find a lot of clarity about ourselves- our identity and purpose especially, when we were younger. No one helped us wrestle with the big questions, but we had to make decisions about what to do with our lives nonetheless. So we went down a path hoping it would all work out. 

But what do you do when you discover that the path you’re on doesn’t lead you to the person you’re becoming, or it doesn’t help you express your deepest values? It’s those types of questions that remind me to talk with my wise friend, John Mark Comer. 

John Mark is the founding pastor of Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon, a teacher and writer with Practicing the Way, and the author of six books: The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, God has a Name, Garden City, Loveology, My Name is Hope, and his newest: Live No Lies.

Max Lucado - Courage for Today and Hope for Tomorrow
00:23:32

We just returned from a bus tour, visiting with friends from Tulsa to Charlotte. One consistent theme I heard from hundreds of conversations was about finding hope again after nearly two years of what our world has gone through.

In the words of my friend, Max, “Don’t measure the height of the mountain. Ponder the power of the one who made it. Don’t tell God how big your storm is. Tell the storm how big your God is. Your problem is not that your problem is so big, but that your view of God is too small.” Listen in for more of his wise words in this week’s episode.

Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and bestselling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

His newest book, You Were Made for This Moment: Courage For Today and Hope for Tomorrow (Thomas Nelson, September 2021), is a relevant and timely release for a society still reeling from racial divides, political strife, and a global pandemic.

Bob Goff - Transitioning Well
00:27:33

Whether you feel it acutely or not, today marks a new season. As the long, hot summer days wane, and the shorter, crisp days of autumn come upon us, it's a natural moment to pause and pay attention to the transitions of our lives, too.

So, we wanted to put together a special episode this week that can help you take an appropriate pause and reflect on the bigger things that are happening. We're taking a look back, too, as we pull a few excerpts from previous conversations we've had on the podcast.

We'd also like to extend to you a free month of our exclusive Bob Weekly content. All you have to do is click this link and sign up for a month of video teachings and a guided curriculum. 

All my best to you this fall season.

Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances
00:30:51

It’s easy to get distracted by our circumstances- whether it’s how our body feels, an urgent problem to solve at work, a house filled with noisy kids, or the latest news headline. Our distractions are just that- distractions from what’s most important. 

So what does it look like to navigate through those distractions? We can’t control the world around us, but we can develop habits that help us stay focused and centered. 

There aren’t many people I’ve run across who do better at living a focused, centered life than my friend, Paul Burns. 

Paul Burns is a believer, builder, maker, dreamer, husband, father and also happens to be a senior executive at Twitter. At Twitter, Paul helps brands, businesses and people see the power of conversation to change the world. Paul believes that when we begin to have more open, healthy and loving conversations (especially about the things we disagree on), we are one step closer to looking more like Jesus. When he's not at Twitter, Paul helps lead a non-profit organization called Matthew House where he helps inspire hope, restore dignity and empower independence for refugees around the world (matthewhouse.ca). Paul lives in Toronto with his wife Olivia and two boys Anderson & Wesley and can be found on Twitter and Instagram @paulburns

Sheila Walsh - Choosing Authenticity
00:37:36

We all want to be known- it’s a deep need inside of everyone. We want to have people in our lives we can count on to hold onto us even when we lose it a little. But, that gets tricky. 

On one hand, we don’t want to be a bummer to our friends. We don’t want to weigh them down. On the other hand, we want to be people others can count on. We want to build ideas, companies, and lives that are strong and put together. But, when life gets too much, or when we experience loss or trauma, the worst thing possible is to realize you’re on your own. 

Maybe you’re going through something difficult right now. Or, perhaps you have something painful that you’ve been holding onto. If you don’t, you certainly will in the future- there’s no escaping hardship, pain, or loss no matter what path you’re on. So, what will it look like to build the type of authentic connections you really need?

I’m so glad we could have my friend, Sheila Walsh, on the podcast to help us navigate these big ideas. 

??Sheila Walsh grew up in Scotland and has spoken to over six million women around the world. Her passion is being a Bible teacher, making God’s Word practical, and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again. Sheila loves writing, has sold almost six million books and is a national bestselling author. She is also the cohost of the television program Life Today, airing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia, with almost one billion potential viewers daily. Calling Texas home, Sheila lives in Dallas with her husband, Barry; her son, Christian; and two little dogs, Tink and Maggie, who rule the roost.

Richard Rohr - Finding & Living From the Center
00:35:00

In our busy, frenetic world, it’s easy to slip into a mode of living that looks and feels a lot like autopilot. We go through the motions, move through our calendars, and rinse and repeat each day. In so many ways the life we long for and the life we’re designed for remains out of our grasp. 

So, for so many people, we try to shake things up. We sign up for a sprint triathlon. We announce to our friends we’re launching a podcast. We start planning a vacation or a bathroom remodel. For a time, it works. We feel more present, alive, and focused. 

But then the autopilot mode returns. 

What does it look like to find an alternative reality? To lean into a different way of thinking, and a new way of living? I can’t think of anyone who can help us find that way better than Father Richard Rohr.

Father Richard Rohr is a Franciscan friar and ecumenical teacher who bears witness to the deep wisdom of Christian mysticism and traditions of action and contemplation.?He is the founder of the?Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC)?and academic Dean of the Living School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has lived since 1986. For over fifty years, Father Richard’s personal experience of God’s infinite and transforming love has inspired his lifelong work of helping to remove the barriers that keep people from knowing God’s love for themselves. He teaches how God’s grace guides us to our birthright as beings made of Divine Love. He is the author of numerous books, including?The Universal Christ, The Wisdom Pattern, Everything Belongs, and?Falling Upward.

READ: Universal Christ, by Richard Rohr

Resource page: http://universalchrist.org

Book URL: https://store.cac.org/collections/all/products/the-universal-christ

Description: In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center.

Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. “God loves things by becoming them,” he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God—except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.

Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is.

Taylor Hughes - The Road to Wonder
00:27:10

For some people, it’s a really big deal to feel like they’re in control. When life throws them curveballs (or worse), cue the anxiety or frustration.

For others, they spend quite a bit of energy trying to avoid complexity or surprises. They prefer life to happen in a predictable way, and like it when they can switch into autopilot mode.

But, reality doesn’t work either way.

In the wise words of my pal, Taylor Hughes, "Your life is not a puzzle to be solved, it is a mystery to enjoy!" Sometimes we need to be redirected to be able to see the wonder happening all around us. 

Taylor Hughes fell in love with the art of illusion when his parents bought him a magic kit for his 7th birthday. More than 30 years and 3,000 shows later, Taylor has become known for his signature style of Magic Storytelling. He is a favorite at Hollywood’s famed Magic Castle, a highly sought after Keynote Presenter and has a special on Amazon Prime called '“Chasing Wonder”.

Taylor’s new book, The Road to Wonder: Finding the Extra in Your Ordinary, is now available for pre-order. 

Taylor is married to his high school sweetheart Katie and they live in Southern California with their two daughters Madelyn and Kennedy.

Katherine Wolf - Hope That Heals
00:29:31

There’s very little in life that’s predictable or promised- except for the guarantee of the unexpected to happen. Whether it’s a small thing like getting stuck in traffic or a big thing like getting stuck inside for over a year, how do you find yourself responding?

Although we can’t predict or control what happens to us, we can certainly choose how we’ll respond. Nobody more beautifully demonstrates that than my dear friend, Katherine Wolf. 

Katherine is a communicator and advocate. She married her husband Jay in 2004 and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Their son, James was born in 2007, and six months later Katherine’s life nearly ended with a catastrophic stroke. Miraculously, she survived and continues her recovery to this day, including having a miracle baby, John in 2015. Katherine and Jay have shared their journey of steadfast hope through their books, Hope Heals and Suffer Strong, and at speaking events both live and online before millions. Together, they founded Hope Heals camp, a community for families with disabilities like them. Katherine, Jay, and their two sons live in the Atlanta area.

Charlotte Gambill - Saying Yes to Adventure
00:25:10

One of the most consistent themes we keep returning to is the theme of daring to take great risks. There’s something hardwired in so many of us that want to avoid risks at all costs, so we create lives that are routine, consistent, and safe. 

The problem is, as the famous quote says, we can easily slip into “leading lives of quiet desperation”, and miss out on who we’re meant to be. 

For me, it often takes seeing a real-life example of what an adventurous life looks like that knocks me out of my self-preservation orientation. Charlotte Gambill is that person for me.

With over 25 years in church leadership, Charlotte has committed her life to teach, train and invest in others with a passion to see each person connect with their God given purpose. Both locally and globally she has become a sought-after speaker and teacher. From training teams to helping bring strategic leadership and discipleship in a variety of church settings across the world.

She is also the founder of Cherish women’s conference, a global gathering of women and has launched We Are One and the Cherish foundation initiatives that are bringing the power of kindness into the most broken of places. Author of 14 books, co-founder of the Dare To Be movement, teaching pastor at Church of the Highlands, USA.

Charlotte also serves alongside her husband Steve leading Life Church with five campuses across Europe. Her deepest joy in all of this is building her family first. Happily married to Steve for over 25 years they have two teenage children Hope Cherish and Noah Brave.

Cam Greenwood - Outside the Status Quo
00:26:53

Without realizing it, we can easily slip into a way of doing life that’s overly predictable and monotonous. The status quo is far from the life that God wants us to live.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed with the predictability of your own life, one of the most important moves you can make is to get outside of yourself. 

Cam Greenwood is a guy that’s going to push you to make that move. 

Cam’s the co-founder (alongside his wife, Elise) and chief pioneer of Zorali - the Australian outdoor brand that's on a mission to get the world outside. 

Cam’s adventurous spirit has attracted an abundance of attention and he is recognised as one of Australia's most creative entrepreneurs under the age of 30 - being featured on Smart Company's ‘Smart 30 Under 30’ list. 

His passion for encouraging people to expand their thinking has also led him to share his unique view of the world across Australia & beyond on many different stages and forums. 

For Cam, life is an adventure. An invisible path is even more exhilarating than the most breathtaking of hikes. And as long as there are more corners to explore, Cam will keep seeking what's around the next one. 

Ultimately, Cam’s goal is to inspire people to believe that all things are possible when you actively engage in a life driven more strongly by curiosity than by fear.

Scott Hamilton - Skating Into Olympic-Sized Joy
00:34:52

One thing that you won't miss if you're tuning in to watch the Summer Olympics is loss and disappointment, more so even than victory and celebration. The games, and the journey to get there, are filled with grief, setbacks, rejection, loss, and pain. The question for every athlete who experiences loss is this: what will you do with it? Will you allow it to define you and predict your path?

The same question applies to us because no one escapes those types of experiences.

The most recognized male figure skating star in the world, Scott Hamilton has won 70 titles, awards and honors including an Emmy Award nomination, induction into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame and a privileged member of the World Figure Skating Hall of Fame.

In 1984, Scott captured the attention of the world with his Olympic Gold medal performances in Saravejo and since has shared his love and enthusiasm for the sport as a analyst/commentator, performer, producer and best-selling author (Finish First: Winning Changes Everything, 2018; The Great Eight, 2009; Landing It, 1999). He further inspires others as a speaker, humanitarian, and as a cancer and pituitary brain tumor survivor.

After losing his mother to cancer, then becoming a survivor himself, Scott turned activist, launching the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation (Cancer Alliance for Research, Education and Survivorship). He founded several education and survivorship programs including Chemocare.com and the 4th Angel Mentoring Program. Events such as Sk8 to Elimin8 Cancer and An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends galas fund research into treatments that treat the cancer and spare the patient harm.

Scott recently launched Live Your Days – a call to being present and not let day after day pass, just going through the checklist of life. It is about putting down your phone to enjoy the people and moments that God has given you, because we don’t control the number of days we have on this earth, we only control what we do with them. The online platform includes a weekly podcast interview, 30-day life challenges with easy to implement tips and merchandise, with proceeds benefiting the Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation.

He is also the founder of the Scott Hamilton Skating Academy at the Ford Ice Centers in Antioch, TN and Bellevue, TN, where he may frequently be found coaching Learn to Skate students and sharing his love of skating.

In what little free time remains, Scott can be found on the golf course and enjoys spending time with his wife Tracie and four children – at their home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Tim Timmons - Discovering God Here and Now
00:30:39

If you've ever found yourself with a full schedule but an empty heart, you're in good company. It's far too easy to get caught up in our tasks and commitments and miss out on the presence of God who's always with us.

Tim Timmons is one of my friends who reminds me that God is always available in the here and now.

After two decades of ministry and a lifetime of looking for Jesus, Tim is no stranger to pain, cancer, sorrow, failure, joy and hope. “For most of my life,” Tim shares, “I found myself working FOR God, and not WITH Him, which led to my tired soul desperately searching for more. Saying, ‘Jesus, is this all there is?’” 

When Tim is home, he, Hilary (his wife of 23 years), their four children, and friends gather all week long, including Sunday mornings (Journey Church), and encourage each other to put Jesus into practice in the regular rhythms of our days.

Tim has a new album with Integrity Music, titled HERE, which is now available.

Lysa TerKeurst - Seeing Beautiful Again
00:29:24

It's far too easy to take things too seriously. It makes sense- life is intense, especially the long season we just went through. Even when we approach our dreams and ambitions- things that are actually designed to bring us more life, more joy, and more adventure- it's easy to slip into a mode of intensity that saps all the goodness from us. 

So what does it look like to return to joy, even amid working through the tough challenges and setbacks, too?

I'm so happy to have my good friend Lysa TerKeurst on our podcast this week. Lysa is president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and the #1 New York Times’ bestselling author of Seeing Beautiful Again: 50 Devotions to Find Redemption in Every Part of Your Story and Forgiving What You Can’t Forget and It’s Not Supposed to Be This. She writes from her gray farm table and lives with her family in North Carolina. Connect with her at LysaTerKeurst.com or on social media @LysaTerKeurst.

Todd Tilghman - On the Edge of Ambition
00:25:56

Some of us can sense the moments or seasons when we know deep down that the path we're on is no longer working. Whether you'd describe it as a deep dissatisfaction or a draw towards something else, sometimes it feels like we're on the edge of discovering our next ambition. 

For anyone right now feeling like it's about time for a change, I can't wait for you to listen to Todd Tilghman's journey on the podcast this week. 

Todd Tilghman is a husband and father passionate about family, adoption, loving people, bringing joy and music. Though Todd is best known as the winner of Season 18 on NBC’s The Voice, he has been involved with music and singing his entire life. Todd sang his first song in church at age eight and has spent the years since singing for the love of singing. It’s difficult to place Todd’s music into genre constraints as he simply sings what he experiences. Todd has spent his adulthood in full-time ministry and currently resides in Meridian, Mississippi, with his wife, Brooke, and their eight children. Todd and Brooke have a new book coming out June 2021 titled Every Little Win: How Celebrating Small Victories can Lead to Big Joy and Todd is currently working on music for his debut album. Here's a peek at his new song, Jesus and You.

Natalie Decker - Steering Towards the Finish Line
00:26:56

It's tempting to look at someone who's been successful and assume it was an easy ride for them. For most people though, success didn't come easy at all. They pushed through a bunch of obstacles and kept persevering through a variety of setbacks.

Confronting fear and anxiety, tolerating a lot of risks, maintaining a relentless focus on an ambition despite the odds or opinions- those are the ingredients that differentiate folks who make it and those who don't. And it's in those realities that we develop the resolve that will sustain us no matter what comes. 

This week I'm so thrilled for my new friend and Nascar racing sensation, Natalie Decker, to join us in our ongoing conversation about dreaming big. She not only embodies focus and determination but also someone who knows what it takes to push through setback after setback.

Michael W. Smith - Lessons From His Father
00:30:43

With Father's Day this Sunday, this is your official reminder- it's not too late to send a gift! Honoring the dads, granddads, and father figures in our lives is a great way to not only acknowledge them but also to give a nod to God for placing them in our lives. 

I know that Father's Day can be a mixed bag. Not everyone grew up with a kind, loving dad in their lives. There are many dads themselves who struggle with regret or heartbreak because of the broken relationships they have with their own kids. 

Regardless, this week is an invitation to lean into whatever you need to. It's a reminder that the story with your dad or as a dad isn't finished yet, there's still more to be learned, or still more to be grieved. So let the conversation I have with Michael W. Smith about his latest book be a guide to the reflection work you need to do. 

Michael W. Smith, a multi-platinum recording artist, has won three Grammy Awards, forty-five Dove Awards, an American Music Award, and has sold more than fifteen million albums. He has also given back to the global community, having raised funds to battle AIDS in Africa alongside U2’s Bono; started Rocketown, a safe haven for young people in Tennessee to meet and find hope; and has helped to improve more than 83,000 children’s lives through Compassion International. With a career spanning more than four decades, Smith has also starred in two films and written fourteen books, including his newest The Way of the Father: Lessons from My Dad, Truths about God. He lives with his wife, Debbie, in Franklin, Tennessee. They have five adult children and sixteen grandchildren.

Carey and Toni Nieuwhof - Setting Absurd Expectations for Marriage
00:33:43

Nobody stands at the altar on their wedding day and vows, "Hey- let's just shoot for typical, ok?" Rather, wedding days are filled with hope and imagination for a beautiful life spent together.

But then real life happens.

Marriage is certainly not an easy endeavor. And rarely does anyone get taught how to navigate the complexities of marriage, like navigating conflict, financial stress, career struggles, or raising kids together. With all of that, you throw in a global pandemic on top of it, and so many marriages have really struggled recently.

So, where can we turn to help us sort it all out? I can think of no one better suited than Carey and Toni Nieuwhof.

Carey Nieuwhof is a best-selling leadership author, speaker, podcaster, former attorney, and church planter. He writes one of today’s most influential leadership blogs, and his online content is accessed by leaders over 1.5 million times a month. He speaks to leaders around the world about leadership, change and personal growth. Carey and his wife, Toni have been married for over 30 years.

Toni Nieuwhof is a family law mediator, former divorce attorney, author, speaker and co-host of the Smart Family Podcast. Toni and Carey have spoken publicly about their marriage and she has just released a book to help struggling marriages, Before You Split. From her attorney work, she gives her readers a clearer view of their future options, while also showing how her marriage with Carey went from that bad to this good.

Michelle Williams - Getting Real and Sorting it All Out
00:28:40

There are so many ways to get distracted from pursuing our big ambitions. Some of them, though, are much more serious than others- like depression and other mental health challenges.

We can't separate our mental health from the rest of our lives- it's the foundation for everything. That's why it's so important to develop habits of getting real, being authentic and honest with friends, and seeking help when you need it.

This week, on the Dream Big Podcast, we're engaging in a serious discussion about mental health with a dear friend of mine who is articulate and incredibly genuine.

About Michelle Williams: Michelle Williams is a Grammy Award-winning recording artist and actress who rose to stardom as a member of the R&B mega group, Destiny’s Child, and most recently appeared as the Butterfly on Fox’s hit series, The Masked Singer. Her successful solo albums include Heart to Yours; Do You Know; Unexpected, which spawned the internationally charted single, “We Break the Dawn”; and Journey to Freedom, which featured groupmates Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland on the single, “Say Yes.” Also a talented actress, she debuted on Broadway in Aida (2003) and starred in productions of The Color Purple (2007), Chicago (2009–10), What My Husband Doesn't Know (2011) and Fela!

Michael Hyatt - How to Win at Work
00:29:44

We talk often about what we do for work- it's one of the most common questions and points for conversation. But rarely do we talk about how we work, which matters as much if not more than what we do. 

When we're not approaching our work with thoughtful intentionality, when we aren't allowing others to speak into our approach, our calendars, and our commitments, we miss the opportunity to experience more joy, meaning, and impact. 

So this week I wanted to spend some time inviting Michael Hyatt, one of the most deliberate and thoughtful guys in the world, to guide us to be more reflective about work. 

Michael Hyatt is the founder and chairman of Michael Hyatt & Co., which helps leaders get the focus they need to win at work and succeed at life. Formerly chairman and CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, Michael is also the creator of the Full Focus Planner and a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of several books, including Free to Focus, Your Best Year Ever, Living Forward, and Platform. His work has been featured by the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Businessweek, Entrepreneur, and other publications. Michael has been married to his wife, Gail, for more than forty years. They have five daughters, three sons-in-law, and nine grandchildren. They live just outside Nashville, Tennessee.

Ginny Owens - Listening to Another Voice
00:26:14

As we try to think through shifts in our careers or moving forward on our ambitions, nothing will debilitate us faster than focusing on the roadblocks or distractions. Our human nature will draw us to see things that just aren't there, or to miss the important pieces altogether.

That's why I asked my dear friend, Ginny Owens, to shed some light on what it looks like to listen to another voice.

Blind since age three, Ginny’s unique approach to music and books on darkness, life, and faith has a way of helping us see more clearly so we can find hope in the midst of suffering. Here's what she's learned: "You don't always get to choose your circumstances, but you do get to choose the story your life tells."

A multiple award-winning and critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter, Ginny Owens became a household name when she was named the Gospel Music Association’s “New Artist of the Year” in 2000. In a meaningful career that now encompasses nearly two decades of music – including 10 full-length recordings, three EPs, a popular Christmas album, number one radio singles, and numerous film and television placements – Ginny’s heartbeat behind the music remains the same – to inspire others through sharing her own story in song.

Born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi, a degenerative eye condition left Ginny completely blind by the tender age of three. As her vision diminished, her love of music and the piano expanded, and Ginny discovered songwriting as a window into her unseen world. The unique perspectives inspired by her vision impairment have resulted in inspirational lyrics paired with her diverse musicianship to afford her a space on an even more diverse set of stages, including the Sundance Film Festival, Lilith Fair and the White House, and recordings that transcend genre expectations.

In November 2016, Owens launched the Love Be the Loudest campaign, an initiative in which a portion of album sales are donated to increasing the work of already thriving non-profit organizations.

A 3-time Dove Award winner, Ginny’s songs have also been recorded by popular artists like Michael W. Smith, JJ Heller and Rachael Lampa, and the sought-after songstress was commissioned to write the song, “Fly Away,” for the 2017 film, Trafficked – a song that found itself among the song selections considered for the Academy Awards ballot for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture earlier this year. Ginny is also an author, co-authoring Transcending Mysteries, published by HarperCollins in 2015, and the multi-faceted performer also hosts a popular video blog entitled, “How I See It,” in which Owens helps viewers understand the ins-and-outs of living day-to-day life as a blind person.

For more information on Ginny, or her philanthropic work with Love Be the Loudest, visit: GinnyOwens.com and LoveBeTheLoudest.com. Ginny's new book, "Singing in the Dark: Finding Hope in the Songs of Scripture" is now available.

But this is only part of her identity: Most days you can find her laughing with her kiddos, wondering the streets of Mombasa, or simply enjoying a great cup of Kenyan coffee. She wears many hats, but some of her favorites are being a wife and mother of three who is passionate about spreading joy and helping inspire women from all walks of life to pursue their dreams and step into their true potential.

Jason Brown - A Brand New Route

Jason Brown grew up in Henderson, North Carolina. He went on to attend the University of North Carolina, where he played both guard and tackle before moving to center. He never missed a game. He was drafted in the fourth round by the Baltimore Ravens in 2005. Brown became a free agent in 2009 and was signed by the St. Louis Rams for $37.5 million, making him the highest-paid center in the league. He was again a free agent three years later, but rather than signing a new contract, Brown left the NFL and bought a 1,000-acre farm nearly Louisburg, North Carolina. Brown has been farming full-time since 2013, and he gives nearly everything that he grows (mostly sweet potatoes) to the poor. He shares his story in his book, Centered: Trading Your Plans for a Life That Matters, written with Paul Asay. He and his wife, Tay, have been married since 2003 and have eight children.

Lisa Harper- Life to the Fullest
00:33:58

Do you ever wonder if the Gospel is truly "good news" for your actual, everyday, often difficult, sometimes painful, and typically crazy real life? Well, it is. But sometimes we all need a reminder that God's faithfulness really does follow us into the face of all that harried, hard, and even humorous stuff of life.

In her
new devotional LIFE, Lisa Harper gives you exactly that: a gut-level exploration of pertinent and redemptive moments in Scripture that prove God’s grace is more than sufficient for both the massive and the minuscule things of life.

Whether we deal with personal loss, ongoing trauma, global crisis, or simply a super bad hair day, the Gospel is more than enough to handle everything, so dive into LIFE and find some tangible hope for yours!

Lisa Harper is an engaging, hilarious communicator as well as an authentic and substantive Bible teacher that many enjoy hearing in person, or on countless TV and radio platforms. She holds a Master of Theological Studies from Covenant Seminary, and a doctorate-in-progress at Denver Seminary. She’s been in vocational ministry for thirty years and has written fifteen books and Bible study curriculums but says her greatest accomplishment by far is that of becoming Missy’s (her adopted daughter from Haiti) mama! They live on a hilly farmette south of Nashville, Tennessee, where they enjoy eating copious amounts of chips, queso, and guacamole.

In October 2018, the Senate unanimously confirmed him and President Trump appointed him to lead the United States' global engagement to combat human trafficking and support the coordination of anti-trafficking efforts across the U.S. government.

Ambassador Richmond comes to the highest position in the federal government dedicated to combating human trafficking, after a distinguished career in the global battle for freedom. He co-founded the Human Trafficking Institute that exists to decimate modern slavery at its source by empowering police and prosecutors to use victim-centered and trauma-informed methods to hold traffickers accountable and ensure survivors are treated with respect and care.

Prior to the Institute, Ambassador Richmond served, for more than ten years, as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Department of Justice's Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit where he was named one of the "Federal Prosecutors of the Year" by the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation. He investigated and prosecuted numerous victim-centered labor and sex trafficking cases throughout the United States. He also prosecuted cross burnings, police misconduct, and neo-Nazi hate crimes cases. Ambassador Richmond regularly served as an expert to the United Nations Working Group on Trafficking in Persons. He also lived in India for three years pioneering International Justice Mission's anti-slavery work.

Ambassador Richmond's work to combat human trafficking has earned numerous honors, including: receiving the David Allred Award for Exceptional Contributions to Civil Rights, twice earning the Department of Homeland Security's Outstanding Investigative Accomplishments in a Human Trafficking Award, as well as twice receiving the Department of Justice's Special Commendation Award.

Ambassador Richmond has trained judges, prosecutors, federal agents, law enforcement officers, and non-governmental organizations on effective, proactive human trafficking investigative and prosecutorial strategies. He also taught Human Trafficking Law, Policy, and Litigation at Pepperdine School of Law and Vanderbilt Law School. In 2018, while at the Human Trafficking Institute, he co-authored the first Federal Human Trafficking Report that collected and analyzed all the active federal human trafficking cases in the United States.

Ambassador Richmond earned his Bachelor's degree from the University of Mary Washington and his Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law.

Bob Goff - Dreaming Big for the World
00:27:25

There's never been a time where we're more mindful of the connections we share globally.

Way more than infecting each other with viruses through a pandemic; everything we do is interwoven, between our economies, policies, health practices, and values. Like the quarantined Italians serenading each other across the piazzas, we're all learning how to look out for each other's shared interests and get more involved in each other's welfare.

The pressing question then becomes: how do we be thoughtful and wise about the role we might play in redeeming the world?

Bethany Hamilton - Unstoppable Dreams
00:27:48

 Bethany Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of determination, faith, and hope.

At the age of 13, Bethany lost her left arm to a 14-foot tiger shark, which seemed to end her career as a rising surf star. One month after the attack, Bethany returned to the water and within two years had won her first national title.

In 2007, she realized her dream of surfing professionally and since then, her story has been told in a New York Times best selling autobiography and in the 2011 film, Soul Surfer.

Bethany is involved in numerous charitable efforts, including her own foundation, Friends of Bethany, which reaches out to amputees and youth, encouraging and offering hope to overcome through Jesus Christ. Using her platform as a professional athlete to promote living a fit and healthy lifestyle, she authored the book Body and Soul in 2014. Bethany's latest project, Unstoppable, a surf documentary which showcases her as one of the best women surfers in the world, released theatrically in the USA on July 12, 2019, accompanied by a photo book and a children's book.

Passionate about helping young women be unstoppable in life and faith, Bethany has launched a new website and online course for sharing content and facilitating connection. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mother, and she continues to touch and inspire lives globally as a professional surfer and motivational speaker.

Bob Goff -- Land The Plane
00:18:15

For all the planning that you've been doing to set absurd expectations, explore opportunities,  clear the path, take action, expect setbacks and sustaining belief, it's now time to land the plane of your big ambitions. This is the moment, now is the time. Don't wait a minute longer, heaven is leaning over the rails to watch what you do next.

For some, the hardest part of the dream big framework is finding the courage to set absurd expectations in the first place. 

For others, though, they get stuck in the planning. There's so much thinking and pondering and ruminating that it becomes a never-ending cycle of inactivity. Going public with your dreams requires courage, and the temptation to wait a little longer or plan a little more is strong. 

But you have to land the plane.

Bob Goff -- Sustain Belief
00:27:47

If your dream is big enough, it's going to take you months or maybe even years to see it realized. There's no question that you're going to have multiple moments of doubt, discouragement, or even a deep questioning about your capacity to keep going.

If your dream is going to see the light of day, then you're going to need to learn how to sustain belief.

It's different for everybody. You might need close friends to give you frequent reminders of encouragement. You might need to keep returning to the original reason why you had this ambition in the first place. Or you might need to establish a habit of writing down, again and again, the reasons why this matters to you.

No one else can manufacture belief for you- it's something you're going to have to do on your own.

Ben Higgins -- Getting Unstuck and Changing Perceptions
00:37:42

        Ben Higgins is best known from season 20 of ABC's hit series, "The Bachelor," where he opened himself up to millions of viewers, giving them the chance to truly get to know him. The opportunity ultimately led to an enhanced platform that he now uses to share what he is most passionate about with others - his faith, his hope for humanity and his love of sports.

Born and raised in Winona Lake, IN, Ben currently resides in Denver, CO, where he moved after graduating from Indiana University in 2012. Since "The Bachelor," Ben has been keeping up with a number of projects with the help of some of his closest friends.

Most recently, Ben founded Generous International, a for purpose company dedicated to contributing profits to social issues around the world, starting with a cup of coffee. With a vision to change the way society thinks of consumer products, all Generous merchandise is designed specifically to create and multiply good in the world. Whether creating jobs, feeding children or improving education, it begins with giving back in order to build a world that we all want to live in.

In 2017 Ben created a lifestyle blog, The Mahogany Workplace, where people?are free to openly and honestly discuss all things life, love and everything in between. From style to travel to world views, Ben and his team of refreshing contributors cover it all, with the one common thread being complete transparency about how life can truly be - a series of ups and downs, joys and sorrows, triumph and pain.?

Ben stays connected with his loyal Bachelor following with his iHeartMedia podcast, "Almost Famous," which he co-hosts with his friend and former Bachelor contestant, Ashley Iaconetti. It's the perfect destination for fans to get an inside perspective on the popular franchise as they break down the current Bachelor season in addition to discussing pop culture, offering relationship advice and allowing listeners to keep up with their personal lives.

Along with "Almost Famous" a new project started in 2018 for Ben and IheartMedia; a new podcast venture called Lady Bosses (and Ben). Ben along with his co-host Jesse Draper believe that we are at our best when we can communicate openly, honestly, and respectfully. Lady Bosses (and Ben) interviews and highlights women leaders in whatever arena they are operating. From celebrities, CEO's, to athletes Lady Boss (and Ben) desires to show off their stories and empower all leaders listening that they matter and that they can make a difference.

Of all Ben's ventures, his longest-running connection has been with Humanity and Hope United, where he holds a seat on the board. Established by one of his best friends and Mahogany Workplace contributor, Riley Fuller, Humanity & Hope United is a non-profit organization working to assist underserved villages in remote parts of Honduras. They partner with the people of each community to achieve sustainable change, focusing on the needs of individuals rather than a single issue or approach.

Bob Goff -- Clear the Path
00:15:59

        As we go through life, there are a few things we pick up along the way. Some of them are good- talents, experiences, friendships, and habits. But some of them aren't so helpful when it comes to dreaming big dreams and living a life of adventure and purpose. In this episode, Bob and Scott are going to guide you to have the courage to look in the mirror at your own life to see what you might've picked up along the way that isn't leading you to the life that you've always wanted.

It takes courage to look in the mirror and clear the path.

It's not easy. You're probably going to see things in your own life that either you haven't seen before or things that you've been working hard to avoid. Some of them might be small things- little idiosyncrasies you do that are unique to you but have become unhelpful habits. Some of them, though, might be more significant- like the limiting beliefs we all carry inside about who we are or who we could be in this life. Regardless, this is some of the most important work you can do to develop capacity within yourself to reach for bigger dreams.

Christy Nockels-- Dreams are for Sharing
00:30:19

        Christy Nockels has long had a huge appreciation for music and for ministry and its role in the kingdom of God. As a worship leader for over 25 years, she's seen first hand how music can usher people into the presence of God in a powerful way. Whether she's singing a gentle lullaby or belting out a corporate anthem, Christy's heart has always been to simply lead people to connect and communicate with the living God.

The daughter of a pastor, born in Texas and raised in Oklahoma, Christy remembers simple beginnings that laid a sure foundation for her life. By the time she was seventeen, Christy was leading worship corporately on a regular basis, mostly thanks to her worship pastor at her church, who believed in her and helped to raise her up. In 1993 - at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Colorado, - she met her husband, Nathan, and the two went on to record an independent album called Holy Roar with fellow worship leader and friend, Charlie Hall, under the name Sons & Daughters. The trio had a ground-breaking sound for their time, with hearts to see renewal happen in the Church. The record seeped out and into the hands of Louie Giglio, founder of Passion Conferences. In 1996, he wrote to Christy, Nathan, and Charlie to encourage them that "the songs you are singing are the prayers we are praying" and Giglio invited them to participate in the first ever Passion Conference in Austin, Texas in 1997.

Christy and Nathan eventually moved to Houston, Texas to lead at a weekly gathering of over 3,000 people called "Metro Bible Study" - a ministry to singles held at Houston's First Baptist Church. Leading here was the gateway for Christy and Nathan being discovered and signed by Rocketown Records, a label formed by longtime Christian artist, Michael W. Smith. The two would form the duo, Watermark and Christy's voice began gaining a national platform. Christy and Nathan moved to Franklin, TN and over the next ten years recorded five acclaimed albums, including seven number one radio singles, before deciding to lay down their Watermark journey, for the sake of their family.

In 2008, the Nockels family - now a family of five - moved to Atlanta, GA to become a founding family of Passion City Church, where they served on the worship team with friends Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, and Kristian Stanfill. Christy eventually signed with sixstepsrecords, releasing her solo debut album, Life Light Up, and later released two more solo albums, Into the Glorious as well as her live, worship album Let it Be Jesus. Christy and Nathan spent twenty years altogether serving and traveling worldwide with Passion Conferences. In 2015, Christy and Nathan returned to Franklin, TN to continue raising their family in the place that has always felt most like home.

Christy is now co-owner of Keeper's Branch Records, with her husband, Nathan. Christy released three albums in just three years after creating their independent label: The Thrill of Hope released in 2016, Be Held; Lullabies for the Beloved in 2018 as well as the instrumental version of that album. Christy's latest endeavor is her podcast called "The Glorious in the Mundane", which has exceeded her expectations since it's beginning in 2016. It has grown in listeners but also in Christy's heart as a place where she's learning to use her voice beyond singing. Christy calls Franklin, TN home, with her husband Nathan and their three children, Noah (18), Elliana (16) and Annie Rose (11).

Jason Russell -- Always Have a Few Dreams Cooking
00:49:50

        Many people, on their deathbed, regret they didn't pursue their ambitions more. In hindsight they did what they felt like they were supposed to do, and didn't live in the freedom to create their own stories.

Jason Russell is not going to be one of those people, and you don't have to be, either.
