Favorite quotes-

1. You can actually do both (family and passions/career) if you’re willing to think outside box about what this whole concept of “having it all” looks like.

2. Your best opportunities in life will come from people you know. Your network matters so much.

3. Looking into your personality type and understanding your strengths and weaknesses is sort of like looking at the toolkit God has given you. You have to understand your tools  before you can properly use them.

4. If we don't know how we're wired, we will just think there is something inherently wrong with us.

Favorite quotes-

The truth is if we want God and we want Him to do things in our life that are beautiful and full, then we have to do whatever it takes to get rid of the things that hinder that.  

I had gotten to the place in my life I wasn’t going to give Him excuses anymore because I wanted Him more than I wanted my excuses.

I don't want to have to hide in a corner being afraid that my truth is going to come out.  I don't want to live that way!

Favorite quotes-

I was so encouraged when I saw this idea of take my yoke upon you, and you will find rest for your souls… that it’s not always going to be rest for our bodies, but it can be rest for our souls, and the yoke is actually an instrument to help a burden beast do his work better… in the heat of the day!


Don’t try to figure out the end of the journey and how you’re going to get there, just take that next little daily step.

I think to some degree, we bought into this idea that we are never really going to be able to find rest. I think the problem is that we are usually told that we just have to permanently slow down.

 

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 I know if I am self-sabotaging myself and if I am, how do I stop it? (44:37)

Favorite quotes- 

I had to stop hiding. I had to stop running. I was always wanting to be the impressive person in the room. Like not even in a prideful way, just I think I felt so insecure that I thought if I can just be impressive with the things that I do then maybe people will love me.

I had to pull myself out of the self-obsession that comes with depression and start showing up for other people no matter the cost.

God is bigger. God had a bigger plan. He had a bigger purpose for my life. And I look at it as a testimony to me that the darkness didn’t win. The darkness didn’t get to have me.

It is okay to get help and to talk to a professional and there is no shame in that.

You having depression is not a result of you not praying enough. Never think that you having depression is a result of not praying enough or not reading the Bible enough.

Just because you are in the pit, just because you are going through something that you may even feel like there might not be a way out of it but that’s not where the story ends!” (20:24)

 

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

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. 

In this episode, I answer these questions- 

Do you have any New Breaking Buys tips? That book really changed my life and I want more. (36:08)

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)
