    Determined to be Desperate

    Determined to be Desperate

    My guest on this episode of the Barbells & Brothers podcast is Josh Howard.  Josh has been in youth ministry for six years.  He was saved when he was five years old, called into ministry at seventeen, and did everything he could to royally mess up the call that the Lord placed on his heart.  But the Lord has a plan.  Josh knows what it's like to be saved, but feel lost.  And that is where he came face to face with his desperate need for Jesus Christ.  Now he is a husband, a father, a youth pastor, and an author of a newly released book called, Determined to be Desperate".  And most importantly, he works every day to be more desperate for Jesus Christ.

    I also share what it looks like as Jesus as our role model of being a king, warrior, magician and lover in our own personal lives.

    Game Changer: How to Thrive when Life Doesn't Go According to Plan

    Game Changer: How to Thrive when Life Doesn't Go According to Plan

    My guest on the Barbells & Brothers podcast is Sam Kuhnert.  Sam was born with one hand, but that has never stopped him from embracing God’s purpose for him.  When people used to ask Sam about his limb-difference, he’d smile and answer, “Because God said I didn’t need an ‘extra’ hand!”  Owning his difference made all the difference in his ability to move forward with confidence in sports, even after many said he’d never play outside of rec level.   

    Sam is the founder of NubAbility Athletics Foundation.  He is a speaker and author with his newly released book Game Changer:  How to Thrive when Life Doesn’t Go According to Plan

Food Can Kill or Heal

Excellent Podcast about how food has the power to heal our bodies-which are made in the image of God, or harm our fabulous bodies. The host, Troy Ismir, chooses the most interesting guests with topics that range from fitness, nutrition, to stress relief. I am learning a lot by listening to these informative interviews.
