Scott Hamilton - Skating Into Olympic-Sized Joy

Scott Hamilton - Skating Into Olympic-Sized Joy
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

Tim Timmons - Discovering God Here and Now
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.

Liz Bohannon - Building a Life of Purpose and Impact
We all want to make a difference with our lives, to do something meaningful and leave a mark. But for so many people, they wait too long to be zapped by a specific, unique calling. If that's you- you find yourself waiting and wondering, maybe on the verge of feeling like you're languishing, then you're going to want to meet my friend, Liz Bohannon.

Liz Forkin Bohannon is the founder of Sseko Designs. Sseko is an ethical fashion brand that works to educate and empower women. By providing employment and educational opportunities, Sseko enables women to continue their education and become leaders in their country. In four years, Sseko has grown from three women making sandals together under a mango tree, to an international fashion brand that provides employment, educational opportunities and entrepreneurial training to over 50 women in East Africa.

Using her unlikely story of a journalist-gone-shoe-maker, Liz shares her passion for social enterprise, conscious consumerism, social justice, creative leadership, gender equity, risk-taking, and empowering women. She believes deeply that business is a powerful platform for social change and that girls are our future.

She now splits her time between Uganda and Portland, Oregon, where she and her husband Ben run Sseko Designs.

Her new book, Beginner's Pluck: Build Your Life of Purpose and Impact Now, is now available.

Lysa TerKeurst - Seeing Beautiful Again

Lysa TerKeurst - Seeing Beautiful Again
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

Todd Tilghman - On the Edge of Ambition
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.
