What’s Keeping You From Fighting Your Giant?

This weekend, I had the privilege to speak alongside an amazing group of people at the LaunchOut Conference in Atlanta, Georgia. Here’s a video of the talk: As I prepared, I felt that God was telling me to go to the story of David and Goliath, and He reminded me that all of us have an epic adventure to live. (1 Samuel 17) The problem is that most of us become comfortable, scared, or distracted along the way. In the […]

How Am I Supposed to Know My Calling?

How am I supposed to know what my calling is? I get this question all of the time and, for whatever reason, many times this week.
