Michael Todd - Crazy Faith

Michael Todd - Crazy Faith
Anything bold you do in life requires an element of risk. People might not understand what you're doing, or openly disagree. You might not know if it's all going to work out- there's risk involved. 

But anything worth doing is worth taking those risks. The question is, what will you do with the uncertainty? Where will you put your trust and faith?

As pastor and author Mike Todd says, "That dream God has given you might seem crazy right now, but what seems crazy in one season will be counted as faith in another."

This week we invited Mike Todd, the lead pastor of Transformation Church in Tulsa, OK on to the Dream Big Podcast. Mike and his wife, Natalie, are highly sought after speakers and leaders that have ministered and spoken in many churches and events, both domestically and internationally, all while leading Transformation Church where they reach over 5,000 people in physical attendance and over 20,000 people live online every week. Pastor Michael and Natalie live in Tulsa with four beautiful children-Isabella, Michael Jr., Ava, and Gia Todd.

It's always difficult this time of year to grasp how quickly the days move along. It seems like just a few weeks ago summer was winding down and school was starting. Now, we find ourselves suddenly thrust into a fast-paced race to the finish line. 

But, there's another reality happening just under the surface. It's the season of Advent, and we can easily miss it.

What is Advent all about? With the temptation to get wrapped up in gift-buying, relatives to visit, and year-end work responsibilities, the primary invitation God gives us is to recognize and interact with his presence. He is doing something new, right now, in your everyday life.

INTRODUCING ADVENT WITH BOB GOFF

So, this year, we put together a unique digital course called Advent with Bob Goff. What is it?

Nine teaching videos with Bob through two themes: Expectant and Presence

Guided meditations and reflection questions you can use for personal reflection or as a discussion guide with your friends or family

Lifetime access to the content

P.S. If you're already signed up for Bob Weekly, you'll receive these videos there- so no need to sign up for this! ]

Come to Dream Big with Bob Goff at the Oaks

Also, we have two Dream Big live workshops coming up in December and January. Join Bob Goff at The Oaks December 6-8 for a three-day experience and bring your dreams along! What better way to prepare for the new year than to prioritize your dreams, set some goals, and make them a reality. Your dream might seem ridiculous, but not here. The bigger your dreams are, the better. 

The Dream Big framework is Bob's personal outline to dream execution in a straightforward 7-step approach. You'll spend 3 days hearing from Bob's experiences and collaboration with a tight-knit collective of other dreamers like you. During the sessions, Bob will help you stop hitting the wall and repeating the same mistakes when trying to start your dream. He'll come alongside and show you how to make room in your everyday life to make your goals happen.

The recipe for success pairs Bob's expertise with an intimate, small group setting where your dream will get focused attention and a tangible action plan. As a result, space is limited so reserve your spot today.

We can't wait to Dream Big with you at The Oaks!

Allison Trowbridge - Writing the Stories of Your Life
If you're like me, then you want the story of your life to make a big splash- a meaningful impact in the world. The most important part of that, of course, is the way you live your life. The other part is how you reflect on the life that you're living. I try to do that through the stories I tell. 

If you want to make an impact with your words, then you're going to want to listen to today's new podcast episode and take a load of notes. 

Allison Trowbridge is the founder and CEO of Copper (www.meetcopper.com), a platform using curated content to help people gather in meaningful community. She's also the host of a new podcast, "Real Good Company" with Caitlin Crosby, founder & CEO of The Giving Keys. Allison published her book, "Twenty-Two: Letters to a Young Woman Searching for Meaning" in 2017 with HarperCollins while completing her MBA at Oxford's Said Business School. She became obsessed with publishing after witnessing a handful of books ignite the global anti-slavery movement, where she worked for nearly a decade leading marketing, fundraising, and international campaigns.

Become a Certified Dream Big Coach

There are people who are one coaching session away from radically changing the trajectory of their lives. We all dream about making a difference in other people's lives. Some of us are called to make a deliberate, focused impact through the work of coaching.

It's what we're all wired for- to make a real difference. More than just the desire, though, affecting change in other people's lives is serious business, with core competencies and tools you can learn and implement. There are people close to you who...

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

Were hoping that it would've all just worked out by now, but it hasn't.

Wondering if this life is as good as it gets. 

Who will intervene and guide them to a different reality?

It's normal to be resistant about stepping out of your comfort zone and into something you aren't familiar with. Why wouldn't you be hesitant? That's where the unknown is and where the danger lies.

This week we're thrilled to have our good friend, Shauna Niequist on the Dream Big Podcast.

Derwin Gray - Dreaming for Broken Barriers

Derwin Gray - Dreaming for Broken Barriers
It's a uniquely challenging time to imagine a world without barriers, not to mention racial justice and peace. The conflict in our culture seems to get more palpable and explicit every day. 

Let this week's conversation with pastor, author, and former NFL player Derwin Gray be a seed of hope and a foundation for how we all move forward into compassion and grace. 

Dr. Derwin L. Gray is the founding and lead pastor of Transformation Church, a multiethnic, multigenerational, mission-shaped community just south of Charlotte, North Carolina. He has written several books, most recently the bestselling The Good Life: What Jesus Teaches about Finding True Happiness. Gray and his wife Vicki have been married since 1992 and have two adult children.

The Dream Big Academy

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.

Kirsten Powers - Saved by Grace
Over the past couple of years, most of us are feeling the negative effects of a world in turmoil. It's hard to escape, even if you do your best to avoid the news or social media. There's almost a palpable negative energy in our world these days. 

The question is, how do we learn how to be engaged in the world and yet not overwhelmed by toxicity or conflict? How can we find a way to turn to faith, hope, and love rather than critique or contempt? 

Kirsten Powers is a New York Times bestselling author, USA Today columnist, and senior political analyst for CNN, where she appears regularly on Anderson Cooper 360, CNN Tonight with Don Lemon, and The Lead with Jake Tapper. Her writing has been published in The Washington Post, Elle, The Daily Beast, The Wall Street Journal, The Dallas Morning News, The New York Observer, Salon, the New York Post, and The American Prospect online. Raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, Powers lives in Washington, D.C, with her fiancÚ, Robert Draper, and their two fur children, Lucy and Bill.
