34 Aaron Smith – From Husband Revolution & Marriage After God
On this episode, I sit down with Aaron Smith. The man behind @husbandrevolution. Together wife his wife, Jennifer, they run three different platforms, Unveiled Wife, Husband Revolution, and Marriage After God. In our conversation we dive into Aaron and Jennifer Smith’s backstory and talk about how they got started. In addition to that we talk about: their tool belt, the idea of a “tool belt” that all of us have (whether we know it or not), we talk about blending ministry and business, and lastly I think one of the more profound things is how Aaron and Jennifer found their purpose through saying “yes” again and again. Which after all, is the number one thing I’m obsessed with and why I made this podcast in the first place: pursuing your life’s purpose. Then I just want to add some side commentary… this particular conversation with Aaron was incredible for me, and it almost turned into a counseling session as Aaron probed at my habit of categorizing people and making judgements of people based on their appearance as opposed to their fruit. I think that we all love the motivational quotes that talk about pursuing our dreams boldly, and not caring about what anyone else thinks. But, in this conversation I realized that my habit of judging was causing me to fear that I will be judged if I live the life that I am called to live. I don’t know if that makes any sense to any of you, but maybe it will be the end of the episode. I loved this conversation with Aaron, and I am inspired by his confidence in who he is in Christ, and that he doesn’t care what other people think of him. Which is something that I have struggled with for a long time, just being comfortable being me. Anyways, without rambling too much more lets dive into this counseling session, I mean conversation with Aaron Smith. Quotes from this episode: “Don’t sacrifice your marriage on the alter of ministry.”“My wife and I have this term that we call “our tool belt.” It’s all of the things in your life — the experiences, the relationships, the resources, the education. It’s all of the things that make up who you are that God wants to use for what he’s doing.”“If we don’t make money on the book, if we don’t have a viable business, we can’t sell that book. No one will get the book. If we give away the book for free, then no one gets the book. The fact that people buy the book allow us to keep making the book.”“We give books away a lot, people often say they can’t afford one and we give them a book. We don’t do that for everyone, but we’ve given away a lot of books. But that doesn’t matter, how many books we give away does not allow us to make money on the rest of the books, that’s the wrong mentality.”“Everything that this business-ministry has turned into, it’s not ours, it’s Gods and we are trying to serve him. So at the end of the day every decision we make we should be honoring God with it.”“We all have influence.” “Most men, and people in general, don’t recognize the influence that we have. Either we are positively intentionally leading them towards Christ, or you are passively influencing them the other way.”“Until you can identify who you are, your podcast is going to go no where.” “The journey of a thousand miles starts with a step.”“All of the giftings talents and resources, and your relationship with Christ should be first felt in the home. It is a radiating effect. If your wife and children are benefiting from your talents, meaning your not bringing home the bacon. meaning they aren’t being benefited and blessed by your giftings and talents and resources. Why would you give them to someone else?”“Invest well. Invest family first. Invest in your relationship with God. Invest in your children. Invest in your neighbors. Invest in your fellowship. Invest in the world. For him. Not for your own glory. Not for your own platform. Those things come as fruits.”“When you have your priorities in order, ministry becomes a natural extension.” Key Topics/Takeaways: Understanding that running a business does not exclude running a ministry, nor does running a ministry exclude running a business.How are we positively influencing our wives?Everyone has influence.We don’t know people by their appearance, but by their fruit.

On this episode, Christopher West shares more about his entrepreneurial journey. He starts with his desire to pursue a career as a musician. He talks about some of the key moments and people that have got him to where he is today. One thing that i was really excited about with this podcast is our discussion that I think is very relevant for Christian entrepreneurs, or anyone that is really motivated and inspired on pursuing greatness in the world, but also being very aware of God’s plan for our lives. Christopher says some excellent things on here regarding the blending discernment our passion to have an impact on the world. Questions Asked On This Episode: First of all for anyone listening that has never heard of Theology of the Body what is your elevator pitch on what it is?

What’s next? What are you working on right now that you are really excited about in the future? Any books, courses, projects, etc. The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch This was mentioned in the episode regarding the quote: “The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

On this episode, Ryan Dyar and Chris Kiefer discuss creative endeavors, mental health, YouTube, Formula 1 Racing, and movies. View this post on Instagram I had a fantastic time chatting with @ryandyar last week. I knew that we were going to have a good conversation, but I didn’t anticipate it being this good. . If you’ve ever wondered what life is like for a professional photographer or an instagram influencer you will want to check this episode out. . Ryan puts a lot of effort into his work, but he also spends a lot of time thinking about the man he wants to be for his family and life in general. . Episode 26 | The Pursuit of Purpose Podcast A post shared by Chris Kiefer (@pursuitofpurpose.pod) on Jan 22, 2019 at 8:56am PST Who Is Ryan Dyar? According to Ryan Dyar’s Website: I’m a chubby man-child from the Seattle, Wa area who points cameras at stuff. I’ve somehow gotten lucky enough to not work a “real” job for the past several years and can call myself a Professional Photographer/Image Creator… but “Professional” is a term I use lightly. Please refer to the first sentence for clarification. My path to photography was as organic as most people’s. I received a camera as a gift and took it along on my travels at a time in my life that I felt a bit lost. The ensuing interest in creating images gave me the direction in my life that I was lacking. Now it’s over a decade later and photography has not only become my career, but what my existence revolves around… for better or worse. A camera has lead me to meeting my wife, some of my best friends, and also discovering this one true passion in life that has guided me toward being a better human. My idea of creating imagery seems to be constantly changing with the times and I take artistic liberties with the process of making my own style of art… which might not be for everyone. Whether you like my work or not, thanks for taking the time to check it out. Cheers!From the “About Page” on RyanDyar.com Questions Asked On This Episode You never really pursued or desired becoming a professional photographer. How did you end up as one?I’ve heard you say you don’t want your life to be all about photography or defined by photography. What do you want to be defined by?You said that you’ve “been working on mental health for the last 10 years to where you are happy in your own head.” What lead you to focus on this?“I don’t know how people live without youtube. There is something for everything on YouTube. Followed it step by step.” — let’s talk about this. What is the craziest thing you have done that maybe you weren’t qualified to do?Not being an artist, I have a hard time relating to the purists that get upset about photoshopping and what not. What are you thoughts on that?I think that whatever the market thinks is cool is cool. It’s not up to the artist to decide if his work is good or not.Are you a fan of YouTube? What is the craziest thing you have ever learned on YouTube?What is vacation for you, what does it actually look like?Tell me about your interest in Formula 1 racing.You’re a good cook.
