We just returned from a bus tour, visiting with friends from Tulsa to Charlotte. One consistent theme I heard from hundreds of conversations was about finding hope again after nearly two years of what our world has gone through.

In the words of my friend, Max, “Don’t measure the height of the mountain. Ponder the power of the one who made it. Don’t tell God how big your storm is. Tell the storm how big your God is. Your problem is not that your problem is so big, but that your view of God is too small.” Listen in for more of his wise words in this week’s episode.

Max Lucado is a pastor, speaker, and bestselling author who, in his own words, “writes books for people who don’t read books.” He serves the people of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, and his message is for the hurting, the guilty, the lonely, and the discouraged: God loves you; let him.

His newest book, You Were Made for This Moment: Courage For Today and Hope for Tomorrow (Thomas Nelson, September 2021), is a relevant and timely release for a society still reeling from racial divides, political strife, and a global pandemic.

The Dream Big Academy

Living a focused, engaged life of love, adventure, and impact shouldn't be a mystery.

It's what we're all wired for, it's what we all long for. But, it's not the norm. From all the places I've traveled to and the people I've met, I know that most people don't experience that kind of life. They feel...

Like they're missing out on a different life, a life that others seem to experience.

That it should've all just worked out by now, but it hasn't.

Frankly, like they're languishing- and this must be as good as it gets.

But, there's so much more...

That's why we started putting these digital courses together. I can't travel everywhere, and not everyone can travel to me. But, what if there was a way to share life together and walk through these simple ideas I've been learning?

Before, we've released these courses one at a time. Then we'd close the registration. But through the pandemic, we learned that a LOT of people want to keep growing, and they're looking for a framework they can trust.

So, we put them all together- 6 interactive digital courses. Two specifically designed to help you identify and unleash your big ambitions. One for budding authors. Another for speakers. A course for your family. A course for your career. With more coming in the future.

And, since we already have Bob Weekly as a monthly subscription for exclusive content, we threw that in there, too.

The Dream Big Academy is the place to go for people wanting to get serious about the shape of their lives.

I'd love for you to learn more- maybe even watch a short webinar we put together that goes into more detail.

    Laura Story - So Long, Normal

    32:56

    It's always tempting to try to live up to the expectations other people have of us. Even if our past is marked by success, it's burdensome to try to keep that up.&nbsp; Normally, most of us keep at it- we keep striving the fulfill the expectations we think people have of who we are and what we do. It can feel overwhelming or frightening to imagine dealing with their disappointment with us.&nbsp; Fortunately, we don't have to get stuck in normal- we are new creations every day. This week on the podcast we dig into that conversation with my friend, Laura Story.&nbsp; About Laura and her Latest Book In the shifting (or even collapsing) of everything familiar in life, you don’t have to wring your hands in fear. Push past the loss of your “normal” with bestselling author and Bible teacher Laura Story, and step into the new story God is writing for you. You've been faced with circumstances beyond your control. Your plans are altered. But you have the blessing of a Father who loves you enough to take off the training wheels and place his beloved child in the best possible scenario for your good and growth. So Long, Normal guides you to leave behind the idols of comfort, caution, and routine so you can live strong and well, even when life takes an unwelcome turn. In her confessional, conversational style, worship leader, Bible teacher, and Christian recording artist Laura Story weaves her own personal stories with examples from Scripture of characters whose lives were upended by unexpected (and undesired) change.

    Philip Yancey - Putting Faith Back Together

    33:09

    If you’ve participated in a community of faith before, you’ve probably quickly realized what most people eventually discover- it’s filled with a bunch of imperfect people. Whether you go to a megachurch or a local community church, it’s not uncommon for us to have experiences that get us more than a little off-kilter and disoriented about our faith. Sometimes, we can even get the wires all crossed and mistake who God is with what people speaking in His name do.&nbsp; The question is, how do we think through our faith and our relationship to the church well? How can we integrate our experiences and rediscover a faith in God that’s marked by love and grace? I doubt there’s anyone who can speak more wisely about that than Philip Yancey.&nbsp; Philip Yancey has authored over 25 books, in which he has wrestled with God, with the Church, and with fellow believers. After surviving a church background of what he now calls “toxic faith,” he ultimately came to know a God of grace and beauty. With a journalistic, story-telling style, he invites readers to accompany him as he probes the deepest mysteries of the Christian faith, and challenges readers to live as followers of Jesus. Many have done so. His books have sold more than 15 million copies in English, and have been translated into 40 languages worldwide. Philip’s bestselling titles include What’s So Amazing About Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew. His most recent book is a memoir, Where the Light Fell, released by Convergent Books on October 5th. Philip Yancey and his wife lived in downtown Chicago before moving to the foothills of Colorado, where they enjoy mountain climbing, skiing, wildlife, and many other delights of the Rocky Mountains.

    Levi Lusko - Rediscovering Childlike Faith

    29:35

    With all of the serious things happening in the world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed or even bummed out. It’s hard to go through your normal routines and carry out your obligations while carrying the stress of the world on your shoulders. Sometimes, if you’re like me, you feel a level of anxiety to fix everything, or at least do something heroic to make a big splash and try to change where everything is headed. But God isn’t asking us to be a hero necessarily, he’s asking us to participate. What’s the best way to jump in? With the same playful, open-hearted attitude a kid would have. To show up, ready to play, willing to say yes to the adventure God has for us.&nbsp; This week on the Dream Big Podcast, we invited my friend Levi Lusko to share his recent children’s book and the message behind it we all need to hear. Levi Lusko is the founder and lead pastor of Fresh Life Church, located in Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, Utah and everywhere online. He is the bestselling author of “Through the Eyes of a Lion,” “Swipe Right,” and “I Declare War.”&nbsp;&nbsp; Levi also travels the world speaking about Jesus. Through television, online streaming, and Levi and his wife Jennie’s bestselling books, their ministry reaches around the world. They enjoy family days, getting outside, good coffee and sharing new experiences. The Lusko family includes one son: Lennox, and four daughters: Alivia, Daisy, Clover, and Lenya, who is in Heaven.

    John Mark Comer - The Flag in the Sand

    38:06

    Sometimes, without realizing it, we can find ourselves off track from the life we’re meant to live. Or, to put it another way, we wake up one day with a sense that we’re living someone else’s life; we’re in the wrong story. Maybe you might even say it’s a good story- it’s just not the right one for you. Most of us didn’t find a lot of clarity about ourselves- our identity and purpose especially, when we were younger. No one helped us wrestle with the big questions, but we had to make decisions about what to do with our lives nonetheless. So we went down a path hoping it would all work out.&nbsp; But what do you do when you discover that the path you’re on doesn’t lead you to the person you’re becoming, or it doesn’t help you express your deepest values? It’s those types of questions that remind me to talk with my wise friend, John Mark Comer.&nbsp; John Mark is the founding pastor of Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon, a teacher and writer with Practicing the Way, and the author of six books: The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, God has a Name, Garden City, Loveology, My Name is Hope, and his newest: Live No Lies.

    27:33

    Whether you feel it acutely or not, today marks a new season. As the long, hot summer days wane, and the shorter, crisp days of autumn come upon us, it's a natural moment to pause and pay attention to the transitions of our lives, too. So, we wanted to put together a special episode this week that can help you take an appropriate pause and reflect on the bigger things that are happening.

    Paul Burns - Driven by Identity Not Circumstances

    30:51

    It’s easy to get distracted by our circumstances- whether it’s how our body feels, an urgent problem to solve at work, a house filled with noisy kids, or the latest news headline. Our distractions are just that- distractions from what’s most important.&nbsp; So what does it look like to navigate through those distractions? We can’t control the world around us, but we can develop habits that help us stay focused and centered.&nbsp; There aren’t many people I’ve run across who do better at living a focused, centered life than my friend, Paul Burns.&nbsp; Paul Burns is a believer, builder, maker, dreamer, husband, father and also happens to be a senior executive at Twitter. At Twitter, Paul helps brands, businesses and people see the power of conversation to change the world. Paul believes that when we begin to have more open, healthy and loving conversations (especially about the things we disagree on), we are one step closer to looking more like Jesus. When he's not at Twitter, Paul helps lead a non-profit organization called Matthew House where he helps inspire hope, restore dignity and empower independence for refugees around the world (matthewhouse.ca). Paul lives in Toronto with his wife Olivia and two boys Anderson &amp; Wesley and can be found on Twitter and Instagram @paulburns&nbsp; Also on the episode: Producer &amp; Co-host : Scott Schimmel The Dream Big Academy Living a focused, engaged life of love, adventure, and impact shouldn't be a mystery.

    Sheila Walsh - Choosing Authenticity

    37:36

    We all want to be known- it’s a deep need inside of everyone. We want to have people in our lives we can count on to hold onto us even when we lose it a little. But, that gets tricky.&nbsp; On one hand, we don’t want to be a bummer to our friends. We don’t want to weigh them down. On the other hand, we want to be people others can count on. We want to build ideas, companies, and lives that are strong and put together. But, when life gets too much, or when we experience loss or trauma, the worst thing possible is to realize you’re on your own.&nbsp; Maybe you’re going through something difficult right now. Or, perhaps you have something painful that you’ve been holding onto. If you don’t, you certainly will in the future- there’s no escaping hardship, pain, or loss no matter what path you’re on. So, what will it look like to build the type of authentic connections you really need? I’m so glad we could have my friend, Sheila Walsh, on the podcast to help us navigate these big ideas.&nbsp; ??Sheila Walsh grew up in Scotland and has spoken to over six million women around the world. Her passion is being a Bible teacher, making God’s Word practical, and sharing her own story of how God met her when she was at her lowest point and lifted her up again. Sheila loves writing, has sold almost six million books and is a national bestselling author. She is also the cohost of the television program Life Today, airing in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia, with almost one billion potential viewers daily.

    Richard Rohr - Finding & Living From the Center

    35:00

    In our busy, frenetic world, it’s easy to slip into a mode of living that looks and feels a lot like autopilot. We go through the motions, move through our calendars, and rinse and repeat each day. In so many ways the life we long for and the life we’re designed for remains out of our grasp.&nbsp; So, for so many people, we try to shake things up. We sign up for a sprint triathlon. We announce to our friends we’re launching a podcast. We start planning a vacation or a bathroom remodel. For a time, it works. We feel more present, alive, and focused.&nbsp; But then the autopilot mode returns.&nbsp; What does it look like to find an alternative reality? To lean into a different way of thinking, and a new way of living? I can’t think of anyone who can help us find that way better than Father Richard Rohr. Father Richard Rohr is a Franciscan friar and ecumenical teacher who bears witness to the deep wisdom of Christian mysticism and traditions of action and contemplation.?He is the founder of the?Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC)?and academic Dean of the Living School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he has lived since 1986. For over fifty years, Father Richard’s personal experience of God’s infinite and transforming love has inspired his lifelong work of helping to remove the barriers that keep people from knowing God’s love for themselves. He teaches how God’s grace guides us to our birthright as beings made of Divine Love. He is the author of numerous books, including?The Universal Christ, The Wisdom Pattern, Everything Belongs, and?Falling Upward. READ: Universal Christ, by Richard Rohr Resource page: http://universalchrist.org Book URL: https://store.cac.org/collections/all/products/the-universal-christ Description: In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center. Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. “God loves things by becoming them,” he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God—except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet. Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is. CONSPIRE conference Friday, Sept. 24 – Sunday, Sept. 26 In this time of great unknowing, how do we expand our sense of self to include love, healing, and forgiveness—not just for ourselves and those like us, but for the entire world? Join thousands of spiritual seekers from across the world...

    Taylor Hughes - The Road to Wonder

    27:10

    For some people, it’s a really big deal to feel like they’re in control. When life throws them curveballs (or worse), cue the anxiety or frustration. For others, they spend quite a bit of energy trying to avoid complexity or surprises. They prefer life to happen in a predictable way, and like it when they can switch into autopilot mode. But, reality doesn’t work either way. In the wise words of my pal, Taylor Hughes, "Your life is not a puzzle to be solved, it is a mystery to enjoy!" Sometimes we need to be redirected to be able to see the wonder happening all around us.&nbsp; Taylor Hughes fell in love with the art of illusion when his parents bought him a magic kit for his 7th birthday.
