EP 169 The Secret to Peace is in Letting Go
So many of us go about our days doing our very best and giving it all we've got as we pursue our goals, but instead of feeling content and satisfied, we find ourselves full of stress and anxiety. We may think it's because we're busy and have responsibilities - and that's just the way life is. But the truth is it doesn't actually have to be that way! Working hard and being responsible is good, yes, but striving to do it all, have it all, and take care of it all while depending solely on our own strength is exhausting. So how can we lead a full life, pursue our purpose and passions, and live our days with peace? It begins with understanding that no matter how strong, gifted, or talented we may be, none of us are designed to do what only God can do. The key is learning to lean into Jesus, to rest in his strength on the inside of us, and to trust him with what only he can do. This episode will empower you to pursue your purpose with peace by letting go of the desire to control everything and learning what it means to rest in the never-ending goodness of God.

EP 168 What is Standing Between You and Your Destiny?
How sad would it be to get to the end of our days and realize that we never fully lived? To look back and realize that we had settled for living life on the sidelines. That we allowed fear or shame or self doubt or disappointment or simple procrastination to stand between us and our destiny? The unfortunate reality is that too many of us settle for feeling stuck instead of asking God to help us get unstuck and committing to moving forward - no matter how much hard work it takes. We sacrifice our destinies on the altar of tomorrow. The good news is - through a relationship with Jesus Christ you can get back to embracing the abundant, passionate, purpose-driven life that you were meant for - today. This episode will empower you to rise up, to tear down the attitudes and habits that are holding you back, and to live an abundant joy-filled life of purpose.

EP 167 Changing the World Starts with You
At some point in our lives almost every single one of us has had a desire to change something in the world around us. Whatever change you have dreamed of being a part of, I have good news for you - God created you to do just that. But that change must start within first. In order to lead, we must learn how to follow. In order to teach, we must first learn the skills ourselves. Walking in our purpose to be a change-agent will require obedience, hard work, and discipline. It will be a journey of learning to identify and tear down idols, of learning to live and grow in a local church community, and of connecting with God daily through time in his Word. This episode will empower you to develop the courage and discipline to follow where God leads so you can bring about change in the world for his glory.

EP 165 Are You Ready to Break Free from Stress and Striving?
So many of us these days are worn out and stressed out because we are striving to obtain the life God has already promised to give us. But peace, joy, belonging, freedom, and impact aren't earned by striving; they are received by resting. It sounds counterintuitive in today's world-because it is. Work is good, but laboring solely in our own strength and wisdom to try to make good decisions, to get ahead, to love others, or just to live everyday life, is a path that will eventually leave us feeling overwhelmed, defeated, and exhausted. But there is good news: You can enjoy rest and move forward in your purpose, passion, and destiny at the same time. This episode will empower you to rest in God's promises and in his strength working through you so that you can fulfill your purpose while living a life full of peace and joy.
