Favorite quotes- 

I was a good enough leader to build a great company, but not a good enough leader to sustain a great company.

Where scripture is clear, God looks at our actions. Where scripture is obscure, God looks at our hearts.

If you believe wrong you will never live strong.

Success in this world comes from a firm unwavering practice of filling our souls with God's truth.

The word Success has been hijacked by the culture. We have reduced it, we have twisted it, and we have molded it into a golden calf for society to worship.

We can’t be successful businessmen if we can ‘t be successful husbands, we can’t build successful organizations if we don’t have successful families, we can’t do successful churches if we can’t do successful relationships.

 

Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer your questions about life, faith, and business.

Favorite quotes- 

When something is unexpected to us, it doesn’t mean that it’s unexpected to God. 

You never really know if you believe that God is sovereign and in control until you are out of control.

The enemy will come at you…because what he wants is our faith. He doesn’t want our house or our cars, or our stuff.

You become who you hang around. So if you want to become healthy, you’ve got to hang around healthy people.

You’ve got to evaluate, very regularly, are the people that you are running closest to bringing you closer to Jesus and helping you become more Christ-like or not…I want to get around faith-filled people who are going to help me run harder and closer to Jesus, that are going to help me believe God and stir up the fight of faith in me.

Jesus didn’t come from Heaven to Earth to make us safe. He came to make us dangerous to the kingdom of darkness.

The only thing that never changes in and around us is Jesus.

A lot of times, our greatest ministry comes from our greatest unexpected pain – but you need faith to keep moving forward and not get stuck.

Embrace the adventure because walking with Jesus is unexpected. I think sometimes we think walking with Jesus means that my life will be safe, controlled, and predictable, but I don’t know who sold out to that kind of Christianity because that’s not what the Bible says. Jesus is predictable, but walking with him is unpredictable.

 

Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer your questions about life, faith, and business. 

In this episode, I answer these questions- 

1. How do you know the difference between fear and God telling you “no” or “not yet”? (31:50)

2. I’m in the first stages of building my platform. What do I need to focus on the most? (37:52)

3. Do you have a mentor? And how do you recommend finding a mentor? (43:39)

Episode #3- Lisa Bevere on Truth, faith, and strength

AWS #3- Lisa Bevere.png

This one is so fun. Lisa and I talk about so many things it was hard to make a proper highlights list for you!

In this episode we discuss:

1. How Lisa moved from a scared young woman and mom to a bold, fierce woman sharing God’s great love.

2. Walking through the dry times in our faith walk. 

3. Lisa’s response to the call to write/teach and advice for those who have also received that call. 

4. The story behind Lisa’ new book “Adamant” and her vision for the book.

5. The danger of being politically correct and instead of biblically correct. 

6. The power of a season of preparation. 

 

Favorite Lisa quotes- 

Great quotes from the interview-

Behind the spirit of fear is a heart of unbelief. 

Brave is not something that we feel - it’s something that we do!

If we’re going to be brave enough to dream, we must be brave enough to fight. 

The more influence we have the less right we have to just say whatever we want to say. 

Some people have incredible gifting that God is waiting for their character to catch up.

God is adamant about his daughters stepping into everything he creates for them

I think a lot of times people see a season of preparation as rejection. Or a season of preparation as a “I must have missed God” when really it’s a compliment. He’s preparing and purifying you for the next step. 

 

Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer your questions about life, faith, and business. 

In this episode, I answer these questions- 

1. Do you ever feel you’ve arrived at your Christian walk? (46:20)

AWS #2- Lara Casey.png

In this episode Lara Casey and I have a blast talking business, family, life and what matters. Some of the things we discuss are:

Favorite Lara quotes-

There’s no better secret than help!

I had to give myself reminders of God’s transforming grace in letting go of control and not feeling like I have to do it all and do it well.

When I take myself out of the narrow thinking and zoom way out, I think that’s where I find a lot more freedom because God meets me there.

I had to give myself reminders of God’s transforming grace in letting go of control and not feeling like I have to do it all and do it well. Really being intentional of surrendering which practically speaking means stopping if I feel that tension of striving for control or perfection just saying God I feel it again and like please help me to let go.
