Ep. 153 | We Stand With Tony Dungy Standing for Life
This past week, Tony Dungy spoke at the Rally for Life event in Washington DC. As a part of his speech he mentioned that millions of people got together and called on God because a life was at stake and they wanted to see that life saved. He was talking about Damar Hamlin, the NFL player that collapsed on the field. He then went on to say that everyday, lives are at stake, speaking of the millions of babies being aborted everyday, who are still important in the eyes of God. Many called on him to be fired for these comments. That’s ridiculous. We talk about this situation in this episode of our podcast.

Ep. 150 | Identity in Christ
As you begin the new year, and have most likely set a few goals for yourself, make sure you keep the main things the main thing. We have established a group for people who want to join us in reading through the entire Bible in 2023. One of the goals is to help people align their life in a way that they will be able to discover their true identity. Let us be reminded that Galatians 2:20 says, “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me.” No matter what you are faced with in 2023, never forget you are a child of the King and your identity can be realized in that.

Ep. 149 | The GROWTH Mindset
The way we think is so important to the success we will have in life. We all have one of two mindsets. Some people have a FIXED mindset; which means they believe that whatever knowledge, skills, abilities, or talents they are born with are fixed and cannot be changed. Other people have a GROWTH mindset; which means they can develop new skills, talents, abilities, and gain more knowledge for as long as they are on this planet. In this episode of the podcast, we discuss having a GROWTH mindset that will help you accomplish all you want in life.
