Key Quotes (Full Transcript of the Conversation Here)


  • 19:49 - "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."
