Conversation Notes

  • We are most alive when we are dreaming
  • 3:20 – “When I stop dreaming, when I stop allowing my heart to really dream about things that apart from God are impossible, I not longer kind of lean in, I begin to lean back. I don’t engage, I disengage. And I would say the greatest thing in the world you could do for your kids is to be a dreamer that’s pursuing what God has in your life.”
  • 3:53 – “So I think our kids seeing us pursue the dreams that are in our heart is a really critical part of our fathering and discipling of them.”
  • Trusting God with the Hearts of our kids:
  • 4:20 – A story of trusting God with his kids
  • 5:45 – “God I trust you with the hearts of my kids. I trust that you have what’s best for them”
  • Brotherhood & Friendships
  • 7:48 – “At the end of the day, what we know is this: any area of my life that has blessed, any area of my life that has wisdom attached to it, any area of my life that has fruit attached to it, it’s because other people have joined me in it.”
  • 8:50 – “When I stand before God one day, [He’s going to say] I didn’t just require your best, I require your best and the best of these people I put around you, so when it comes to father I think the reality is our best ins’t good enough – that’s really never meant to be good enough.  It’ snot just my best I’m bringing to the is equation, it’s my best and it’s the best of…these men that pour into my life, that walk with me, that then allows me to be a good father.”
  • 9:35 – “When I allow myself to be isolated, when I allow myself to be independent, when i allow myself to think that I just should be able to do this on my own and I don’t need anybody speaking into my life or challenging me or encouraging me, well I just want to say that your best isn’t good enough…God didn’t set it up that way.”
  • 9:54 – “God didn’t set it up where…it’s just you and nobody else, you just give it your best. He’s like, I put a whole family around you and I’m bringing those strengths into your life so that you can accomplish what I’ve asked you to accomplish and raise these kids.”
  • 10:14 – “There’s not one area of my life that hasn’t been touched by the strength of other and that’s why it has a measure of success to it.
