Concerning asking specific questions and not accepting generalized answers... Have you experienced this type of situation where a business leader was not being specific in the things they should have been tracking and holding others accountable in? How can someone who is responsible for supervising others, for example a C level executive or a business owner, how can they make sure the information they are receiving is accurate and useful in making decisions? How can business owners differentiate their business from others? Standing out from among the crowd, so to speak? In this day and time of COVID, have you found many of your clients embracing Zoom meetings and tele-working rather than face to face meetings? Are they indicating they will continue these types of meetings in the future, after COVID? You have a non-profit called “Wisdom for Kids.” Can you tell us about this organization and what you do? Angel, this has been a fascinating conversation.

Angel Ribo is a business consultant, International CEO, Philanthropist and the founder of “The CEO Confidant,” an organization that helps “C” level executives to become more aware of the implications of their business decisions and the decision making processes. First question I always start with is this. Other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Angel Ribo?” You help a lot of high level executives in your business. I know this is a challenging area since many at this level are very guarded in how much they share with others. How have you been able to overcome this and gain the confidence of this, basically, closed-knit group? Do most of these executives come to you for help in increasing sales, increasing performance of staff, or other things? Can you give some examples? One saying I have seen you use, in some posts and some videos, is the phrase, “So What?”  I love how you use this to snap people into focusing on specifics. Can you give us some examples of how you use this? As a junior officer in the military, we had a Squadron Commander who was notorious for asking the hard questions. I actually learned a lot from him that I’ve continued to use in business, as a police officer supervisor and in the ministry. It involves asking detailed questions and not accepting general answers.  Folks, the information you heard today can impact your business, the business of someone you know or care about and it can impact your family and community as well. If you have a business, or if you know someone who has a business, give them Angel Ribo’s contact information.

JOURNEY OF A CHRISTIAN DAD – DAN LUIGS PT 3When you are single, you only worry about you. Once you are married, you start to think about how you can bless your wife (or husband if you are a woman listening to this). Then, when you become a father, it suddenly dawns on you that you have a FAMILY.   I can remember thinking, at the ripe old age of 19, that I was married and a DAD!  I was still a teenager! I was still trying to find my way and now, I had a family that was looking to ME to be a provider and to be a leader. And, I may add, I was NOT born again at that time (and was not born again for many years from that time, sad to say). But, what do you do when that realization comes? What do you do when your family is now looking to you to be the leader? That is what we will be discussing today with my guest, Dan Luigs. Dan is US Army Veteran, praise God.  Dan is a coach for the Accelerate Mastermind Group. He is on the advisory board for the Good Dad Project and has been featured on the Good Dad Podcast. Dan is also an insurance salesman at “The Insurance Store” located in Chesterfield, Missouri and is a leader in insurance sales through using referrals. And he is the host of the “Journey of the Christian Dad Podcast!” Praise God! Now, I’ve heard your first episode of your podcast where you talk about the conversation you had with God about starting your podcast. Tell us how you heard from the Lord about starting your podcast… One thing I love about doing interviews with so many people, is that I learn so much just by doing these interviews. Are you finding that out as you are doing your interviews? Tell us about your Facebook Group…When did you start the group and what is the purpose and what do you do there? Dan, this is so needful in the society we live in today. If someone wanted to get more information from you, to get in contact with you or maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you? Folks, especially you men out there, Dan Luigs is here to help. You need to understand the Spiritual hierarchy that the Lord has established in the family. The responsibility is shared, yes, between the husband and the wife. But God will be holding the husband and fathers responsible for ensuring the family is operating and growing and thriving according to Christian principles. We need to make sure we are leading our family correctly and Biblically. I urge you to get in touch with Dan Luigs. Use the links down below. Get in touch and see how he can help you. It may just be to give you some encouragement. It may be more. But you will not know unless you ask. And that is why I asked Dan to come on the program today, to explain this to you in ways I could not communicate. He’s the pro at this. He’s provided his contact information and I will put those links in the show notes below. So get in touch with Dan Luigs today.  CONTACT INFORMATION:https://directory.libsyn.com/shows/view/id/thejourneyofachristiandad (Journey of a Christian Dad Podcast)Facebook Group:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/thejourneyofachristiandad/ (https://www.facebook.com/groups/thejourneyofachristiandad/) Support this podcast

And he is the host of the “Journey of the Christian Dad Podcast!” Praise God! Part of your story is how you went from a high income job to no income at all. I can relate to that situation 100%.  That sounds just like my past. So, how did that shape what you are doing today? Growing up, you believed the mom’s in the family had the responsibility of being the Spiritual authority in the home. What made you believe that? What made you realize that you needed be the Spiritual leader in the family and home? How difficult was it for you to start out sharing your Faith?  What do you recall as that pivotal moment when you decided you were going to share your Faith and if that caused a rift, so be it?

Naked Grace Lucas Kitchen pt 2Many people today are beginning to realize that they need God now more than ever. With everything going on in the world, with COVID shutdowns and a resurgence in the pandemic to businesses being shut down, closed and some never to reopen. Careers suddenly ending. Income stopped or cut way back. People everywhere are wondering if they are really saved? They are wondering if something does happen, would they be one of those who would see Jesus as He welcomes them to Heaven…or not… That is one of the most important questions that people who are searching for eternal life ask, “What do I have to do to be saved?” On the surface, that should be one of the easiest questions for other believers to answer for someone. But it seems as if it is, instead, one that most people struggle with when trying to share the simple Gospel message of Salvation with others. In 2012, Lucas Kitchen began to write and has since published 15 books, one of which is called https://amzn.to/2WZAhvv (“Naked Grace”) and we will be discussing this book today. In https://amzn.to/2WZAhvv (NAKED GRACE,) Lucas Kitchen uses wit, humor, and visual storytelling to invite you to join his life-long quest for answers. This multi-decade pursuit took Lucas to some laugh-out-loud places. When the stakes were as high as they could be, the simple answer finally came. His true life story in https://amzn.to/2WZAhvv (NAKED GRACE) explores the confusion that many Christians quietly experience on a weekly basis. As this book demonstrates: just because they’re quiet doesn’t mean they get it. This self-deprecating tale will resonate with anyone who has wrestled with these unanswered questions and is dying to know the truth. Did you feel it was just you that was confused? Or did you know others felt the same way? What was the response from your ministry leaders whom you were asking these questions to? Why did you title your book, https://amzn.to/2WZAhvv (“Naked Grace?”) Where did that come from? Give us the basic layout of your book. Can you give us a couple of examples of the stories you share? When someone reads your book, what is the thing that will impact them the most? What will be the big take away? Your book, https://amzn.to/2WZAhvv (“Naked Grace,”) it’s available on Amazon, correct? Your bio says your have written numerous books. Give us some of the subject matter of your other books… Lucas, this is all so interesting. You’ve definitely given our listeners some interesting things to think about when it comes to sharing salvation and how to answer that ages old question of “What do I need to do to get saved?” NO! I urge you to go down into the show notes and get a copy of Lucas Kitchen’s book, “Naked Grace” today. Do it while you are thinking about it. This book will be a great addition to your reading program.

But it seems as if it is, instead, one that most people struggle with when trying to share the simple Gospel message of Salvation with others. So it was with my guest today, Lucas Kitchen. Lucas grew up in Kilgore Texas, attending Kilgore Bible Church, and graduated from Kilgore High School. Despite growing up in the buckle of the Bible belt, confusion about the Christian faith plagued every step of Lucas’ journey. Lucas did find the Lord and, after high school, he attended and graduated from Letourneau University with Bachelor's of interdisciplinary studies in Bible, Psychology, and History/Political Science. He is currently the teaching pastor at Shreveport Bible Church in Shreveport, Louisiana. In 2012 he began to write and has since published 15 books, one of which is called “Naked Grace” and we will be discussing this book today. In NAKED GRACE, Lucas Kitchen uses wit, humor, and visual storytelling to invite you to join his life-long quest for answers. This multi-decade pursuit took Lucas to some laugh-out-loud places.

Help me welcome to the program, Lucas Kitchen! Lucas, thank you for taking the time to come on the program today! First question, other than brief bit of information I just shared, tell us in your own words, “Who is Lucas Kitchen?” Now, tell us a little about your new book, “Naked Grace.” You talk about being confused as to “What do I need to do to be saved?” How so? Can you give us an example of how your confusion caused some problems? Did you feel it was just you that was confused? Or did you know others felt the same way? What was the response from your ministry leaders whom you were asking these questions to? Why did you title your book, “Naked Grace?” Where did that come from? Give us the basic layout of your book.

“11 Days” – A True Life Novel Mark Holloway pt 3Failed marriage. Failed business. This is something that many people around the world are facing or have faced. The current situation with forced shutdowns and lockdowns and isolation just exasperate problems that have been lingering under the surface. Now, they are rearing their ugly heads. Financial problems are often the major cause of marital problems. And with this COVID situation all across the world – no businesses open means no jobs and no income. But yet, the bills arrive like clockwork. That just leads to further problems in the home. Well, my guest today faced something similar, except it was not COVID related. It was well before that. Mark Holloway’s life was spiralling out of control. His business failed. His wife left him. He was angry. And he was angry at God. And when he screamed out at God, he was amazed when God spoke back! I think I would be too! Amen! God then led him into a way to have amazing, ongoing conversations with Him. And he started to share this method of communicating with God, initially in a blog, and then in “The Freedom Diaries” – a book that has sold thousands of copies all over the world and helped untold numbers of people. Now, Mark’s marriage has been restored – which, by the way, is what God initially told him would happen when he first cried out to God – Praise the Lord. But he is now about to publish a book titled “11 Days.” “11 DAYS” is a novel based on a true story – Mark’s true story of how he stumbled on a conversation with God at the worst time in his life. And how that conversation lead to restoring his broken marriage and his failed business. It’s a story that has taught thousands to have their own back and forth conversations with God. As a result, marriages have been healed, drug habits busted, families restored, businesses revitalised and the Word of God has been shared around the world! Amen! When you first started talking publicly about this concept, how were you received? In your situation, you said that God told you that your wife would come back. But He did not make it happen immediately, right? Did you share this information with your wife at the time? I mean, this is just me talking, I think I would be like, “Oh yeah – well, God told me that you’re coming back – so get with the program!” or something similar... I guess that leads to the question, “Why doesn’t God just tell us the whole story instead of piecemealing it to us? Why does He make us wait and ask Him more questions? You teach this method, in churches and conferences, etc., correct? So initially, you were met with skepticism, but now Christians are more acceptable? Go to the links down below and order your copy of Mark Holloway’s great book, “11 Days – Based on a True Story.” And click on the other links to Mark’s other books that talk about the same subject matter – study up – amen! The Freedom Diaries – which is really what started all of this. And Mark’s book “Cry the Wounded Land” – which details conversations with God about bringing healing to different people groups and cultures living together in the land. You need to get all of these books. You really do. Go down into the show notes and click the links and order your copies today.

Does it take practice to hear and recognize God’s voice or answers to your questions? If someone wanted to do this, how can they prepare for a back and forth conversation with God? Have you ever gotten wrong? What should someone do if they take that step of Faith they believed God was telling them to do in response to a question and they get it wrong? Why did you decide to write “11 Days” as a novel? Tell us about the character “Jack Kincaid…” I love the conversations Jack has with God. For example, Jack and his friend Mick are riding their motorcycles in the mountains and Jack thinks, “I love riding with these guys.” Then, God says, “I like riding with him too,”  “No, you don’t.” “Says who?” “God look, I like him, he’s my mate. But you’re not supposed to like him, he’s a medium for goodness sake…” God say, “So what? There’s a lot of things I’m not supposed to like – uncircumcised men among them. In fact, if you read the bible more carefully you’ll discover that most versions say that if you rebel against your parents or have sex outside of marriage that I want you dead. Yes, it actually says that. You didn’t know that was in there did you? Are you suggesting that you should have been put to death years ago? There are a number of people who are convinced you’re a heretic and although they’d never admit it, they’d be happy to help put an end to your life.” “Good grief, God, you say the craziest things.” “Good grief yourself. What about where it says if you sin with your hands you should cut them off, I’m guessing there are a lot of one armed people in the churches you’ve been to? Or do your harsh interpretations of the bible only apply to others and not yourselves?” “But God…” “But nothing. You all need to stop being so religious. If you read the book a little more carefully, you’ll see that it points out that I like people so much – that’s all people, most of whom don’t even believe in me – that I came to live among them and get to know them.

Help me welcome to the program, all the way from New Zealand, Mark Holloway! Mark, thank you for coming on the program today! First question that I always ask is this. Other than that brief bit of information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Mark Holloway?” Now, let’s jump straight into your book. This is a novel, written around a character named Jack Kincaid. But this is all based upon your story, correct? Ok, so let’s go at it from your point of view and you can add in additional comments as you like from the book. But I want to set the background for everything you are sharing. It all started with what was published as “The Freedom Diaries.” And to put it in a nutshell for our conversation, your marriage is in tatters. You’re angry – and you cry out to God. What happens next? I know – before you answer, let me preface it with this – I know you cried out to God, and that you were led to start writing down your questions. But when you initially cried out, did God say, “Get a pen and paper..?” So lead us through that initial time… You were led at a Christian camp to write down your questions? How long did it take you to realize “this is how God was going to answer me…?” COMMERCIAL There are so many people hurting all over the world right now, for various reasons, the COVID virus is a big one right now. People losing their jobs, loved ones, etc. Would this be a way for them to draw closer to God? Just by writing their questions down? Once you write your question down, “Ok God, why is this happening?” type of thing. How does God answer? In thoughts, in other people, how?

MANIFESTATIONS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TODAY Pastor Phillip Corbett pt 2With all that is happening right now in the world, both Spiritually and in the natural, many people are wondering “What’s next?” With the COVID lockdowns; with the attempt to keep the churches shuttered; with possible election fraud disrupting the very freedoms American’s have basically taken for granted – people are more open than ever to hear the Gospel. The “Good News” instead of all of the bad news. One of the national leaders to take that mantle is Pastor Phillip Corbet, founding pastor of the First Assembly of God Church located in Corrigan, Texas. He has traveled the world, sharing the Gospel. He is someone who believes there is a revival about to spring forth that is going to have global impact. He believes the Church is about to experience its finest hour and the greatest harvest of souls ever! He and his wife Rachel moved to Corrigan, Texas in 1985 to lay the groundwork for the church they were preparing to begin. They have continued to serve faithfully for over thirty-five years of service in this small community they love so well. He has established a healthy church, effecting his small community of Corrigan, located in East Texas. His passion for the presence of God has thrust his church into seasons of extended revivals. He believes the greatest churches are yet to be built. He believes the most effective men of God are yet to be raised up. He believes the most powerful ministries are yet to be birthed. He believes there is a revival coming, that will be of global proportions. He believes that the finest hour of the Church is just ahead. He has been pouring himself into pastors and entire churches all over America and across the world, to prepare them for the greatest harvest of souls they have ever experienced in these last days.   When were you inspired to write your first book? “Running with Your Second Wind” Once you published your book, what was the response? Now, I heard Don share this, and I wanted to ask you about an angelic encounter that occurred, I think Don said in Austin, Texas at a hotel, in reference to your book. Can you share that with us? How many books have you written? Are they available on Amazon? Obviously, as I shared in the opening, you have been led to travel the nation sharing the Gospel. How did the Lord lead you into this traveling aspect of ministry? When did you first start to take your ministry to other nations? I have heard this story and would like you to share it. It involves traveling to minister in Stockholm, Sweden? I know COVID has shut down a lot of your travel plans. But what other nations have you conducted missionary trips in prior to the shutdown? What do you see God doing in America right now or coming up very soon? If someone wanted to get in touch with you, maybe to ask a question, receive more information about your church or ministry, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you? Folks, you have just heard, first hand, how the Lord leads, guides and directs those who are seeking Him and are Spiritually sensitive to actually being LED by the Holy Spirit. These are not just set aside for the few, like Pastor Phillip Corbett. These types of things can happen to YOU if you will seek the Lord with all your heart and put His Word first place in your life.

He believes the Church is about to experience its finest hour and the greatest harvest of souls ever! Amen! Pastor Phil was called by God at the ripe old age of twelve years old. TWELVE! Praise God! He was helping his pastor to tear down an old abandoned church. The pastor was going to use that lumber to form a new church being built in a neighboring town. It was through that experience that the Lord called him to build his own church. He and his wife Rachel moved to Corrigan, Texas in 1985 to lay the groundwork for the church they were preparing to begin. They have continued to serve faithfully for over thirty-five years of service in this small community they love so well.

He has been pouring himself into pastors and entire churches all over America and across the world, to prepare them for the greatest harvest of souls they have ever experienced in these last days. His congregation believes in his calling to take this message across the United States and various parts of the world and supports his efforts to share the Gospel wherever the Lord leads him to go. Phillip has authored several books that are available on Amazon as well. Help me welcome to the program, Pastor Philip Corbett! Pastor, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to join us today! The first question I always start with is this. Other than that brief bit of information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Pastor Philip Corbett?” How did you decide to start a church in Corrigan? How was it in the beginning? Corrigan is not a large metropolis of an area… Was there ever a time when you thought of “giving up?” Where you felt like you were banging your head on a wall? Getting burned out? I heard you participated in the Brownsville Revival. Is that where you received your new direction? How many times have you been to Brownsville? Did you believe the manifestations that occurred on Brownsville could also occur in Corrigan, Texas? How did your church receive these things when the Holy Spirit started to disrupt the “normal” services they were used to? Did you experience any, let’s say, adverse reactions from the locals when all of these things started happening in your church? Were you a “best kept secret” or did word start to spread outside of your local area like it did in Brownsville? What about the other churches in the area? Did they support you or how did they react to all of this? Did your church members feel slighted with all of the visitors? Like they were not being fed properly? Folks, you have just heard, first hand, how the Lord leads, guides and directs those who are seeking Him and are Spiritually... Support this podcast
Signs in the Heavens – Tom Donnan pt 2There is something going on right – and actually has been accelerating for the past 60 years or so, that the Bible says will usher in what is referred to as “The End Times.” That is the fascination with space. With the study of the stars, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, etc. Even back in ancient days, people were tracking the movement of the planets and star constellations. That is how the wise men discerned that a new king had been born among the Jews. They were watching the heavens and seen His sign. The bible is full of scripture references about signs in the Heavens. From Genesis to Revelation. But, for the sake of time, I’m only going to quote one here today. "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. (Luke 21:25-26) This is all devasting the economies of many nations, even here in the United States. The dollar is losing value almost on a daily basis. DXY Chart, what is the value of the Dollar https://www.tradingview.com/symbols/TVC-DXY/ (https://www.tradingview.com/symbols/TVC-DXY/) It is not at its lowest rate, does show a decline. Is the money printing affecting this? You shared something with me recently about the “Velocity of Money Chart.” What is that? Share that information with our listeners… Velocity of Money Chart https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2V (https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/M2V) Lowest on record since 1960’s. Meaning, money is not flowing through our economy. Loss of work/jobs for afraid to spend. This is all resulting in severe shortages and troubles in families all across America. I mean, shutting down businesses, means no income. No income means a family can’t pay rent or house payments – which leads to evictions and foreclosures. Or, if the family pays the rent and house payments, then no money is there for food or necessities. This is a terrible time for some folks. Food Lines in Maui https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOtT1J11Zjc (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOtT1J11Zjc) Food line Omaha https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lviOqwL9l7s (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lviOqwL9l7s) Evictions application by landlords soar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnR-agGYCJg (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnR-agGYCJg) But you say to “hold on – it’s going to get worse.” You shared with me a series of dreams where the Lord showed you some things that were about to happen. Where this was going to be a time for ministries to actually expand our outreaches and to reach out to people that need to know about God. Would you mind sharing them with our listeners? (Tom shares his dream about “Time is up”). If someone wanted to get in touch with you, how can they do that? And we did not even get to discuss your books, again! But, I’m going to put a link to all of your books down in the show notes. Folks, Tom Donnan, once again, has just blown me away with his perspective on current events happening all around us and how it all relates to Bible Prophecy. There is absolutely no way any reasonable person can deny we are living in the last of the last days. If you have never received Jesus as your Lord and Savior, this could be your final chance. I’m not saying Jesus is coming back in 10 minutes – but He could. I’m not saying you will never see tomorrow – but it could happen. We are not guaranteed our next breath. Someone could stop this recording and walk down the hall to get a cup of coffee and have a heart attack while doing so. Someone could be listening to Tom Donnan right now in the car while parking at the grocery store, never to get back in their car again. So, if you have never received Jesus as your Lord or Savior, I urge you to do so right now. Tom, would lead someone to the... Support this podcast

Tom is back today to discuss things going on recently in mankinds quest to understand the stars, the moon, etc. Help me welcome back to the program, our good friend, Tom Donnan! Tom, thank you for coming back on the program today! Ok, let’s start with this one. We will talk about the Moon. 240,000 miles, give or take, from earth. We first went to the moon 51 years ago. That fulfilled President Kennedy’s goal of “landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth.” But, even after the Apollo space program ended, we never really finished with the exploration of the moon. I think I seen somewhere there are, at this time, something like 18 different nations trying to return to the moon. Have you seen anything about that? Eighteen Countries now have the Moon in their sights https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlmbxSarRKg (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlmbxSarRKg) But WHY would they want to go back to the moon? Isn’t just a void, desolate place? Water discovered on the Moon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVhmiRgt3_A (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVhmiRgt3_A) Long term Colonization now possible Sofia research aircraft carries a powerful telescope that identified the water on the moon. Future moon base, could make hydrogen fuel for travel to Mars. I have seen recently that SpaceX is trying to commercialize space travel. They are working on cutting the costs of space travel down enough where private citizens will be able to go into space, at least on a short trip, right? All that is good, for the moon. But we are also looking farther out, past the moon. We even landed a spacecraft ON an asteroid, right? NASA’s OSIRIS-REx: Mission to Bennu; the plans explained https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYGHbl_esgw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYGHbl_esgw) A satellite surveyed the asteroid first, before entering into its orbit. Smallest body ever to be orbited by a spacecraft. It was looking for the best place to land and take a sample. The video above details all of the phases it will go through before selecting the target area to land in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj0O-fLSV7c (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj0O-fLSV7c) 2020 Hurricane season with record number of USA landfalls at twelve.

Catalyst Coaching Russell De Vos pt 2In society today, we often find ourselves being pulled in so many different directions, we don’t really know which way is the right way. We tend to put our attention on the things screaming at us the loudest. Using the old adage of “the squeaky wheel gets the oil.” If that sounds like you… if you keep telling yourself that you need to prioritize better. If you know, deep down on the inside, that you are letting your relationship with God slip… If you are feeling sense of guilt or regret because you are so busy and tired all of the time and the most precious things in life, your family and your relationship with God, is being put on the back burner… if any of this sounds even remotely familiar…then you will want to pay attention today! My guest today has experienced the highs and the lows of success. To coin the old phrase from “Wide World of Sports” (which many younger people have never heard of) which says the “Thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.” My guest today has taken that ride. Russell De Vos was a pastor of a great and thriving church in Bend. Oregon. Starting with just a handful of people, it quickly grew into 1500 people in just three years-time. Praise God! But, with that “thrill of victory” soon came the “agony of defeat.” Distracted by the ever increasing pressures of success, he soon succumbed to the inevitable defeat. Not focusing on God, not focusing on his family, he ended up losing the church and he almost lost his family. But that was not the end of the story… Out of that experience, he now helps other men who struggle through the same things he did. Today, he and his wife, Heather, enjoy each other more than ever. They are serving together and helping others who are going the struggles they had to endure. He is a Certified Life Coach, Teacher and Speaker with both the John Maxwell Team and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching and is the founder of “The Catalyst Coaching” program. Do these things just “happen” or is there a pattern of events, a pattern of habits that start someone down the path towards a fall or a failure? Share with us some of the ways someone can protect themselves from these types of mindsets or patterns that will trip them up? What you are saying is that, after failing…after a huge fall, a huge failing in life, in marriage and, in your case, in ministry and before God, there is hope. There is a way to get back up in life. Can you walk us through some of those steps? In your coaching program, how do you minister these precepts to other men who may have already fallen and are grasping at straws right now, hoping – PRAYING – for a way back? What Words of encouragement can you share with someone listening to us, right now, who may be experiencing some of the things you have shared with us today? Russell, this all sounds so fascinating. As we talked off the air before, I can relate to just about everything you have shared with us. I am still, to this day, astounded that God can take a “mess and turn it into a message” of Hope that can only come through Him. If someone wanted to reach out to you, to get more information on “The Catalyst Coaching Program” or to ask you a question or maybe to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can they get in touch with you? Folks, the Bible is very clear in Romans 3:23, “All of sinned and come short of the Glory of God.” Although pastors are and should be held to a higher standard, remember, we are all humans and have the ability to make wrong decisions, too. Just like the average person out there. George Patton once said it is not “How high a man goes that determines his success. But how high bounces after taking a fall.” If you are struggling with some of the things that Russell and I have discussed today – or other things for that matter as we have really only brushed the surface here – you need to reach out to Russell De Vos right now, today.
