    David Richman - Cycle of Lives: A Cancer Journey

    Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 248 - David Richman - Cycle of Lives: A Cancer Journey
    An entrepreneur, author, public speaker, athlete, and
    philanthropist, David Richman uses the lessons
    learned in his life to enrich and inspire others.
    As a former sedentary, over-weight, smoker, David knew that he needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him, but on what he wanted out of life.

    With his first book, Winning in the Middle of the Pack, David discussed how to get more out of ourselves than ever imag-
    ined. Now, David shares the interconnected stories of others overcoming obstacles—specifically cancer—in his second
    book Cycle of Lives.
    Visit david-richman.com to learn more about David’s story
    and mission.

    Cesar Perez - The Gruesome Art of Becoming Unbreakable

    Cesar Perez - The Gruesome Art of Becoming Unbreakable

    Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 247 and an inspiring, powerful conversation with best-selling author, Cesar Perez.
    A professional actor with a promising career, Cesar Perez was on a meteoric rise until a drunk driver slammed into his car head-on. He coded on the paramedics more than once on the way to the hospital, and coded again when he arrived.
    It’s a miracle he even survived. Still, he wouldn’t have called it miraculous at the time. In one devastating blow, all his dreams had been ripped away. A severe brain injury had left him almost entirely incapacitated. His right arm was paralyzed. His femur had snapped in two. His face was shattered. He spent months learning how to breathe, eat, walk, and talk all over again. In the midst of it all, his girlfriend left him—the same girlfriend he had been on his way to see that fateful night. But life, ultimately, is a gift.
    Fragile, firm, and beautiful.
    Throughout the course of Cesar’s long, often tortuous recovery, Chase the Light shines with courage, grace, and the resilience of the human spirit—reminding us that every life has meaning and every soul has a purpose, always, even in our darkest moments.

    Finding Hope In Times of Tragedy - Pastor Cam Walcott

    Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 245 - Finding Hope In Times of Tragedy - Pastor Cam Walcott
    Pastor Cam Walcott describes his family’s struggle towards hope in the midst of unexplainable, extraordinary tragedy. He details the inner struggles he went through and is still going through, having been deprived of his beloved son so unexpectedly. How can we continue to hope in God when everything has been taken away from us?
    We also are given stories from Caleb’s life, that will resonate with all parents. We see glimpses into the extremely close relationship Cameron and Caleb shared (as well as glimpses of Caleb’s relationship with the rest of his family). Caleb lived life to the fullest in his short 13 years, excelling in school, sports, music, writing, and walking with God.
    Whatever sort of pain you are going through, whatever degree of tragedy you are facing, this book will encourage you to continue to hope in the goodness of God.

    Adam Hill - From Hopeless Addict To Triathlon Champion

    Adam Hill - From Hopeless Addict To Triathlon Champion

    Welcome to The Big Impact Ep 244 and the powerful story of Adam Hill and his new book, Shifting Gears.
    It was never part of Adam Hill's life ambition or his genetic constitution to wear a Speedo in public, let alone compete in a triathlon. For the first three decades of life, he was the poster child for non-athleticism, obsessively unhealthy habits, and an intense fear of...well...everything.
    Yet at the age of thirty-three, with a physique that could only be described as "Sasquatch with a Dad Bod," he put aside his insecurities and took his first step toward an outrageous dream: to qualify for the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. 
    It was a dream shared by nearly every other triathlete in the world, reserved for the top 1 percent of all athletes in the sport—a sport in which Adam had exactly zero experience.
    In Shifting Gears, Adam shares his harrowing, inspiring, and sometimes-clumsy story of transformation, from the origins of a debilitating anxiety disorder to his battle with alcoholism to his rise to the top of the triathlon world stage.
