John Mark Comer - The Flag in the Sand
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.

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.

And, since we already have Bob Weekly as a monthly subscription for exclusive content, we threw that in there, too. 

The Dream Big Academy is the place to go for people wanting to get serious about the shape of their lives. 

I'd love for you to learn more- maybe even watch a short webinar we put together that goes into more detail.
