Key Quotes (Full Transcript of the Conversation Here)

  • 13:05 – “And so that idea of making an organic… rhythm of your life is what I think we modeled through these ministries growing up in that what we aim to bring in our families… we make it every day, all that we did.”
  • 20:55 – “There’s a ton of parallels between the two (doing something physical and fatherhood.) You know, we could talk all day about these parallels. It does require a degree of toughness, at least a decision to be tough. You know, fathering is not for wimps. It’s maybe one of the toughest challenges you’ll have to do, but obviously the most worthwhile challenge you will also do.”
  • 26:21 – “But what we’re saying by inoculation is that it is good to give them one, a taste of the real thing, so real faith in your home. So that can grow, grow food in their heart. So one, give them a taste of the real thing, really practice what you preach…  mentor and be that example. And then two… to expose them to things within your house, expose them to ideologies within your house, expose them to contrary thoughts within your house, bring people into your house who are not like you, who don’t look like you, who don’t think like you, who may not even act like you might not even like them.”
