"Choose joy, always. Be thankful, always. So we're going to really
live in that discipline of always, there's always something to be
thankful for, which isn't just this pie in the sky, pretend like
nothing bad is happening. It is the way through, though. It's the
discipline that even in the midst of super hard, challenging,
emotional, stressful, all that stuff is still there. But the way
through what I've learned from practice, I learned from my wife in
her modeling. And I think our kids just live in this now too,
because we just practiced it for so many years, which is, oh, I'm
going to start with gratitude. Gratitude is the way through."
- 26:19 - "So I can speak about all these
values, the practice of them, super hard. But I also learned on a
spiritual level, that's where the battle is. Anything you set as a
value in your life, whether it's your relationship with Jesus, your
wife, your marriage, your kids, your work, the enemy wants to
destroy that, especially when you declare, this is how we're going
to live. He's going to go after that. And so it forces us to
constantly be on guard. You don't have to be afraid of it, But we
have to be ready for it."
- 30:13 - "I think the second you're
aware of, you're not in a good emotional place, then it is a matter
of putting on. Taking the the lessons from Paul in his letters and
saying, no, put on the clothing you want to be, whether you feel
like it or not. That's the discipline, because discipline is just
practice is keep practicing, keep practicing, keep practicing to be
the person you want to be."
