Key Takeaways


  • The things you’re facing now will prepare you for challenges decades in the future. 
  • You have to trust that God sees the whole picture of your life. 
  • Mentorship and discipleship is someone saying, “You’re about to go through what I’ve already been through, and I am unwilling to let you get hurt worse than me.”

Key Quotes


  • 18:01 - "You always look back and ten years removed from anything it looks way more planned out than when you're in the middle of it. And the truth is whether or not I liked what happened to me, what happened to me forced me to be a man, to be more of a man, to do what God had me do. And that then sets me up for ten years down the road that I don't know about. 
  • 33:27 - "In some of our darkest moments, I've had more clarity on what I was supposed to do because I didn't have a ton of options. So in the worst of moments, I simply had to beg God to help and just say, God, I'm not this big, I'm not smart enough, I need you so bad that when I felt those moments, it actually gets very simple."
