John Mark Comer - The Flag in the Sand

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.

Levi Lusko - Rediscovering Childlike Faith

Levi Lusko - Rediscovering Childlike Faith
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.

Max Lucado - Courage for Today and Hope for Tomorrow

Max Lucado - Courage for Today and Hope for Tomorrow
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
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.

- Bob

Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances

Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances
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
