    259: Emotional Incarceration and How Men Win the War Within (feat. Jason Wilson)

    259: Emotional Incarceration and How Men Win the War Within (feat. Jason Wilson)

    Our guest today, Jason Wilson, is a prolific coach to many men, young and old, across the nation. He says, "Strength depends on the physical ability of the body, but power is based on the spiritual rule over the body." For decades, Jason Wilson was losing the war within—the internal battle that many men wage daily but were never taught how to win. As a result, he could not combat his toxic thoughts and emotions. Instead, he was conquered by them and communicated without composure—hurting those he loved and himself. This went on until he renewed his mind by releasing years of past trauma. His life and relationships were transformed when he learned how to master his emotions and express them with self-control. In the process, Jason became a better husband, father, and leader. And today, you'll hear from Jason and learn how to do the same.

    258: Erwin McManus on Experiencing and Expressing Genius

    Do you remember that at a young age, we had to be taught to color inside the lines? We had to be taught to think inside the box, too. But our natural instinct was to think outside the box. To express an innate genius through our lives. But here's the catch: genius is not transferrable. You could spend your life with Picasso and never become a great painter." But with Jesus, his genius is dramatically the reverse. His genius, it would seem, is contagious. Why? Find out this week with our guest, Erwin McManus.

    257: Burnout, Managing Energy, and How to Live at Your Best (feat. Carey Nieuwhof)
     
    Overwhelmed. Overcommitted. Overworked. That’s the false script many people, maybe you, and definitely I, adopt to be successful. Does this sound familiar? Slammed is normal. Distractions are everywhere. Life gets reduced to going through the motions. To be candid, it's wildly familiar to me. And I don't like it. If you're tired of living that way, hold tight. This week, influential podcast host and thought leader Carey Nieuwhof joins us to talk about burnout, managing energy, and how to live at your best.

    255: Triggered and Insecure? It's the Thing Beneath the Thing. (feat. Steve Carter)

    This week, we're talking about the thing...beneath the thing. The deeper issue. The root cause of the surface-level pain and anxiety you're experiencing today. This week, Steve Carter joins us and he will teach all of us how to identify and deal with the issues beneath the issues in life, how to recognize an over-extension of pleasure that serves as a dysfunctional tool for coping with pain, and why most people miss what's really keeping them stuck.

    254: Why You Need a Reset (feat. Lee Cummings)

    This week on the podcast, we're talking about why you need a reset in life. But today's conversation is more than practical; I believe it's going to be a spiritual deposit. From time to time, I like to invite friends, spiritual leaders, who will help us pause to receive perspective and wisdom about the bigger picture of what the Lord is doing in us and in the world. We need it. And that's exactly the conversation we're having today with my friend, senior pastor of Radiant Church, Lee Cummings.

♥️

I have the honor of knowing Chris and can sincerely say he exudes the same genuine character and integrity in real life that you encounter through this podcast. I admire the way he poses his questions so thoughtfully and allows for raw, candid conversation, even if that means getting really personal and convicting the audience on a deeper level. I don’t think I’ve ever not binged a few episodes on the days that I do listen. Too good and so life-giving.

So Much Wisdom

I have the privilege of knowing Chris and he is one of the most passionate leaders I know. He has great wisdom and humility so I got really excited about this podcast. I have only listened to a few podcasts now and have been amazed by the level of education and perspective these leaders bring. Highly recommend Win Today with Christopher Cook! This will continue to be a go to of mine.
