Michael W. Smith - Lessons From His Father

Michael W. Smith - Lessons From His Father
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
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

Michelle Williams - Getting Real and Sorting it All Out

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! (2013). Michelle is passionate about raising awareness about mental health and about sharing the lessons she has learned in her own struggle with depression.

Michael Hyatt - How to Win at Work

Michael Hyatt - How to Win at Work
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.
