    The Amateur Society - The Beautiful Challenge Of Parenthood - 11.04.2019

    Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This discussion focuses on the nature of parenthood as Courtney and I prepare for the birth of our first daughter. It is important to learn from the experiences of others in addition to exploring these important topics through our own worldviews. Parenting is an awesome responsibility and something that so many throughout the generations have found such joy in. We will be taking a break from podcasting likely through the beginning of 2020 depending on how everything goes. We appreciate your prayers as we embark upon this magnificent journey. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

    The Amateur Society - Willful Ignorance - 10.29.2019

    Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This discussion focuses on ignorance and why we often make a willful choice to avoid exploring certain territory. The picture isn't so clear, and there are many instances where we could say that ignorance is, in fact, preferable to knowledge. We hope you enjoy this dynamic look into the questions that matter and the definitions that structure our approach to ignorance. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

    The Amateur Society - Don't Discard Wisdom - 10.21.2019

    The Amateur Society - Don't Discard Wisdom - 10.21.2019

    Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! This discussion focuses on wisdom, what it is, and why it is important. It may seem obvious that wisdom is good and worthwhile to pursue, but our culture has shifted in several ways that have in many instances led to a prioritization of education and intelligence over wisdom. We unpack these different definitions and make an appeal that all of us must pursue wisdom wholeheartedly in this generation. We hope you will share this broadcast with someone who needs to hear it.

    The Amateur Society - Obstacles To Productivity - 09.30.2019

    The Amateur Society - Obstacles To Productivity - 09.30.2019

    Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! At many points we have encountered in ourselves or others a tendency to be lazy instead of productive. There is definitely a time for rest in order to maximize productivity going forward by avoiding burnout, but all too often we encounter excuses. What are the sources of this overall lack of productivity despite extremely powerful tools enabling us to be more efficient? How can we overcome these obstacles to become more productive? Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!

    The Amateur Society - A Note To Yourself In 10 Years - 09.23.2019

    The Amateur Society - A Note To Yourself In 10 Years - 09.23.2019

    Welcome back to The Amateur Society for another stimulating conversation! What would you write in a note to yourself that would be opened in ten years. Over that time frame plenty of uncertainty can come into play. Our first instinct is usually to hope that some goal has been completed or some experience taken place, but what about the broader questions? I would hope that I had discovered many things that I was wrong about and corrected them, that I would have a more solid worldview foundation, and that I would have improved at making decisions. Let's be encouraged to think more about these critical attitudes and beliefs that underpin our approach to our lives. Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
