- 2:14 - Troy Magnum is author of
- 3:50 - How to be a difference maker/fire
- 4:29 - "There are so many men that are dads that
are fatherless and and they need to know that they can become
amazing, incredibly amazing fathers with God training them as
- 8:25 - "So we all have a back
story that God, if we're willing to let God take us there, he'll
take your treasures out of you. That will be so deep and rich
because it's a generations before you. It's not about you. It's
about you inheriting something God put back way back in generations
- 11:35 - "A lot of what the book is about is
about, you know, that whole idea of getting back up and becoming
the dad your kids need so much of the storyline with God is to get
back up, to receive forgiveness, to seek reconciliation, to receive
wholeness, to do whatever it takes to become a man that God wants
you to be for your children and for your own self and marriage and
et cetera. And so that is such a crucial crossing point because men
so many times out of guilt and shame, they retreat and and the kids
are just like, OK, I guess I guess this whole dad thing's over for
you now, huh?"
- 13:04 - 1 Corinthians 1:27 - "But God chose the
foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak
things of the world to shame the strong." - But God....
- 13:29 - Telling the story of a two year
separation and then reconciliation with his wife.
- 15:04 - "You pass on as a dad, you pass on who
you are more than what you know. You can know the right things to
do. You can know the scriptures that say you should do this, you
can know a lot of things, but you will pass on who you are..."
- 19:03 - A wall or wind - Are you going to be a
wall your kids need to scale to get to what God has called them to
be, or are you going to be wind in their sails?
- 21:50 - "You pass on who you are more than what
you know you want to be the whole, the most whole, healed, healthy
in every sense of the word, man that you can pass
- 22:29 - Stepping into the frontier and letting
God teach the skills you need. ..."are you willing and aware that
this is offered to you, this training module? You look in any
scripture, any man in the Bible, you can say they went to
training... And a lot of that training has to do with difficulty
sometimes and challenges and putting yourself in the frontiers of
'I've never been here. I've never done this. I don't have the
skill.' None of that intimidates God. And if you yield yourself to
God, he will put you in situations that are above your head, above
your pay grade, above your talent, above your skill intentionally
to help you learn skills, talents, abilities, confidence,
[so he can expand your influence.]"
