By a show of hands who here text??  Silly question right… I mean how can you survive in today's day and age without it?  I have friends that if you try and call they hit ignore and say hey what's up? Is my voice that annoying?  It has become a normal part of life… Brief, quick, and often to the points.  Or how about those 3 dots meaning they saw it and was going to type something or is typing something and then they disappear. You wait in suspense. What will they say? What happened. . . Where did they go…  This visual should set us up for today's talk…. Imagine our conversations with God, if you viewed it like your text, how would it look?  Would it be one sided?  Would it be all requests, like He is a genie in a lamp granting wishes?  Would it be full of compliments and praises?  Would it be a conversation, like a relationship I would say most of us, and I am just as guilty of this at times. It looks more like God is speaking to me and I am not listening but every now and then I throw in that ask into Him.  I want to challenge us today to think about what does that conversation look like for you and our Lord?  But make no mistake about it… God is speaking WE need to do a better job on listening. God speaks through his wordGod speaks with a small voiceGod speaks by his people  God will speak to you in His word. So often when you are reading it's like the words pop off the pages. Or you see something that speaks to you in that moment. This is how He uses the word to speak to us. Each time we are here in Church and the Word is being spoken He is speaking and revealing things to us.  Are we listening, is the key? Are we in a guarded stance? We need to be ready to receive and open to hear His still small voice.  So lets jump into the scripture.  I don't think there is any better scripture to paint of God speaking to us in the still small voice than this picture in 1 Kings 19: 11-13Then He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but-the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a]a still small voice.So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”We often think God is in the big and He certainly can be, but often it's the small it's the subtle. Because when the small, the subtle, the meek do mighty things in His name oh the sound that it makes. It moves mountains. It shakes the ground. It changes nations.  Our nation doesn't need any more loud politicians, or loud noise.  Our nation needs the people of God to listen and adhere to the still small voice.  To be intentional to His will and His ways…  We need to stop, slow down a bit, tune it all out…… and listen…… and listen… and listen…..  It's kind of like an old radio you know back in the day you had to turn the knob and get it just right for the music to be clear.. It took some time and there is some static, but being intentional, being patient, and keeping focus the right frequency is found and we get it loud and clear.  The more we do it the easier it gets and clearer He is to us.  A great place to practice this is at Prayer Service (usually the last Wednesday, however October, November & December it will be the second to last Wednesday). It's your chance to stop and really just focus on tuning out the world and tuning into God.  Someone told me they love coming in on Prayer nights, because ashamedly they don't do it at home.  No shame…. That's from the enemy…. But start and what a better place to start than here.  A great man once told me “If you want to learn to pray get around praying people!”  This place right here is our training ground its our place to learn and grow closer to Him. So we can be His light to man when we leave here. You don't train for war in war time, you train for war in times of peace.  Learning to be in His presence and hearing the still small voice Someone in my life said God is not up there jibber jabbing all day long. At the time I was young and my relationship with God was not what it is today, so I believed it. So I never looked or listened to the still small voice except times of need or prayer and when I did, I did the talking and didn't do any listening!  Today say I agree with that statement to a point…  He is not jibber jabbering, but He certainly is guiding us, directing us, instructing us. He is speaking to us often and always. It goes back to what I said early are we listening and tuned in? Most of the time we are not!  But that changes today, right church?   Job 23:12 NLT “I have not departed from his commands, but have treasured his words more than daily food.” He cares about us and sometimes we don't understand the direction at the time, but in time we will.  Will we be obedient today and trust Him?  13After the wise men were gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. “Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother,” the angel said. “Stay there until I tell you to return, because Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.” 19When Herod died, an angel of the Lord appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt. 20“Get up!” the angel said. “Take the child and his mother back to the land of Israel, because those who were trying to kill the child are dead.”21So Joseph got up and returned to the land of Israel with Jesus and his mother. 22But when he learned that the new ruler of Judea was Herod's son Archelaus, he was afraid to go there. Then, after being warned in a dream, he left for the region of Galilee. 23So the family went and lived in a town called Nazareth. This fulfilled what the prophets had said: “He will be called a Nazarene.”STORY:  I had this nudge to travel a different way home. I even had an argument in my head, no that way is 2 minutes longer. 2 minutes, well as I came up to the intersection I ended up behind an accident clean up for 30 minutes. At that time I realized the Lord loves us and every detail. He was by His still small voice trying to warn me, but I argued with it in my head and brushed it off.  On the flip side I would of never gotten that lesson if I would of gone the alternate route right. Think about it. I would of went and it was uneventful and would have just moved on. Passing thought, it must have been. We often don't see what He has just protected us from.  Isaiah  STORY: Friend of mine felt this nudge to go to this restaurant. So in his mind he worked up that the Lord was going to do something huge… Someone there needed to be witnessed to and the Gospel was going to be shared. How often do we do this, right? We expand on what God has shared with us.  So my friend does what he heard, but nothing happened. He ate his biscuit and left. In those times we question, did God really say? Then we second guess did I really hear correct? This goes back to what I said before, sometimes we don't see what is being done, but we are to be obedient and follow those directions?  Sound familiar? Look at Genesis 3:1The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”  This was the first thing ever spoken by the enemy. It wasn't a command or direction, but it was doubt. This is his tactics this is his way. Deception and lying. Often he will cause us to second guess God and plant doubt.  So when we do have something uneventful happen or it didn't happen the way we built it in our minds, we have that in there…. Did God really say??  If left unchecked and we do not recenter ourselves we can quickly drift into not listening to the still small voice. Because the doubt over takes us…. We start to believe did God really say?  Our enemy has no power except the power we give him from the lies he tells us. When we stop believing his lies, he loses all the power he thinks he has over us.  When you hear that in the back of your mind “Did God really say”, answer back.  Heck yes He did really say. My God also said you are a liar, a cheater, and He has already defeated you. So get beneath me to where you belong!  Going back to Joseph, if he would of ignored God, he and his family would have been killed. On the other hand he listened and traveled to Egypt. Avoiding harm, avoiding the plot to murder Jesus.  Joseph probably thought it was uneventful at the time when he left.  I don't know about you, but I choose the uneventful over death each and every time….  Do not discredit what we see as uneventful, rejoice in it! Thank God for the uneventful!  God speaks to me through revelation when reading His word and through the knowing he puts in my heart. It's not an audible voice for me, but it's like He speaks directly in my mind.  This is why cultivating the relationship and knowing is important I have to cut my thoughts from His voice. But through the years of development it gets so much easier.  This is not a one size fits all! We all hear and process differently. God will speak with and reach you how He sees fit.  But the most important piece of today and if you take anything away today is get into the Word. This is God living word. God is always speaking to us, but for me I seem to hear Him the best when this is in my hand. It's not because He only speaks when this is open, but I am engaged and listening in the moment.  I am being intentional and go into listen mode!  What you will find is the more time you spend with Him in the word and when we are mentally ready we get used to hearing His voice and we will pick up on it more in our everyday actions.  For example the next sermon I have already started writing. God gave it to me while I was driving and the whole family was in the car. I have 3 teenage boys they are not what you call quiet!  It's important to cultivate the relationship in the quiet times, so we can hear Him through the noise of everyday life.  Parents will be able to relate to this. As a parent you learn your child's voice, their cry, their scream. I know there would be times that I heard a kid crying in a group of 30 and know that it was one of my boys.  We know it so intimately, we grow so use to hearing it, that in a crowded and noisy place we know who is crying out. What do we do as parents we jump into action.  God wants us to know His voice and communication like this. The more time we spend with Him, the more intimately we know His voice. The more we grow in our hearing of His voice.  It will cut through the noise of the day to day and that still small voice will come through crystal clear.  He does not need to speak louder, He does not need to speak clearer. We need to listen better and be more attentive.  As we wrap up today Church, know he is speaking, He is guiding, He wants to build a relationship with us.  He is ready and waiting so let's meet Him. Turn off the TV, put the phone down and get you a paper Bible to remove distractions and read it to hear from Him.  Come to Him with an expectation to hear the still small voice.  Think how your life, our communities, heck our nation will be when we listen, hear, and follow His still small voice.

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! ~ Isaiah 26:3 (NLT) My wife and I enjoy going mountain biking occasionally – as the opportunity arises. We aren't experts by any stretch of the imagination, but we have fun just the same. I remember the first time we rented bikes in a little town called Sisters, here in Oregon. As we checked out our rental bikes, the employee gave us a bit of advice, since it was our first-time riding. He said, “Look where you want to go, not where you don't.” That was it. Simple, so I thought. As we rode on our first trail, I was getting the feel for things and was a much bigger risk-taker than Michelle. As such, when we got to the top of a big hill, she went down it first so that I could go at a much faster rate. Once she was clear, I started my descent. I got going pretty fast, but I was managing it quite well. That is, until there was an s-curve ahead. An s-curve is a curve that weaves itself between two objects. It requires a quick turn to one side, then the other. This particular turn went between a big tree and a giant boulder. As I got closer, I kept staring at the tree. I didn't want to hit it. But, the more I stared at the tree, the more my bike edged closer and closer to it. Suddenly, I found myself air born, without my bike. While it was giving the tree a hug, I was summersaulting the rest of the way down the hill. It hurt…a lot. I had ignored the advice of the bike shop employee and stared at the tree because I was afraid I would hit it. Ironically enough, staring at it caused me to do exactly that. Instead, had I l looked at the trail in front of me, I would have navigated the corner just fine – a lesson I still haven't forgotten. In our life, it is the same with God. When we start staring at the crazy things in this world –impending doom, or political strife, or a million other things – we become consumed by it. Worry becomes a part of our everyday life. Additionally, when we stare at things that we know aren't good for us, we are also consumed by the sin that they bring into our soul. As our verse today says, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you.” In other words, keep your sights set on Jesus and let His peace fill your life. Look at His path ahead of you. Focus on Him alone. He'll take care of the rest.

As they say, in 2001 a piece of France landed in Portland, Oregon. Cheryl Wakerhauser, who had given up a career as an astronaut to train at the prestigious pâtisserie of MOF Philippe URRACA, started her authentic French dessert restaurant, Pix Pâtisserie. There she served up both innovative and traditional French desserts, chocolates and house made ice creams along side a plethora of top notch beverages. As her website says, “Some women buy shoes, Cheryl buys Champagne”. The walls held over 700 cuvées, including vintage and large format, with a focus on small grower producers. Cheryl wanted quality wine to be affordable while providing a relaxed, fun environment in which to enjoy it. People noticed. Her offering was awarded World's Best Champagne and Sparkling Wine List every year from 2014 - 2020 by London's World of Fine Wine Magazine. Her creativity didn't stop there. In the same space, Cheryl also housed a proper Spanish tapas bar named Bar Vivant. Amazing bar food with a quality selection of wine, beer, cider, Sherry and tasty cocktails. The atmosphere was pure fun and patrons were even encouraged to throw their napkins on the floor and not be afraid to “get a bit rowdy”. You may have noticed the use of past tense, because COVID came along and put the brakes on all of it. Hopefully those days will be back but that formula is out for now. However, Cheryl thinks outside the box. Out of necessity she developed a non-contact, incredible new vending machine with a wistful name typical of Cheryl, the Pix-O-Matic. It's a 24-hour vending machine holding Pix desserts, macarons, conservas from Bar Vivant and other random stuff to make you smile. The machine is thoroughly cleaned and restocked each day at 10AM. Selections can be purchased with the contactless credit card reader. At first, it was a Hail Mary experiment, but it made $100 the first day. Then $400. The $4,000! Before COVID, Cheryl had a staff of 20+, was trying to find employees and all the other headaches of a restaurant owner. Suddenly, she was making as much money as the restaurant would make on a busy Saturday, with one and half employees. Hmmmm, life suddenly got easier. She has now recreated the previous whimsical experience around a couple of vending machines and a superbly fun room in which to enjoy your food and beverage. In an almost Disco-like atmosphere, individuals and families can enjoy themselves all hours of the day. Her story was not missed by Business Bites podcast as a brilliant way to create a revenue stream in the lockdown era. Fall down seven times, get up eight.

Buddy has been recording in Nashville on music row for 30 years as a session piano player, producer, and songwriter. So you can imagine how devastated he was when he was diagnosed with Throat cancer.  His initial doctor was dead set on doing a treatment for his throat that could have ultimately left him without a voice box.  A musician without a voice box was unacceptable for Buddy so he began his search to find alternatives.Buddy was told he had 4 years to live and so he has been determined to actually live for each of those years and truly love every minute of it. Cancer is probably one of the most dreadful words in the dictionary. Yet almost 50 % of us have been or will be faced with the diagnosis. Suddenly you are faced with sifting through a mountain of information to figure out how to survive this dreadful disease for the sake of yourself, your children and grandchildren. Many have decided against the orthodox treatment as the only option, because you've seen friends and family members who contracted cancer and followed their doctor's recommendations, only to die within a year or two suffering the devastating effects of chemo and supposedly pinpointed radiation.Integrative Cancer Solutions was created to instill hope and empowerment. Other people have been where you are right now and have already done the research for you. Listen to their stories and journeys and apply what they learned to achieve similar outcomes as they have, cancer remission and an even more fullness of life than before the diagnosis. Guests will discuss what therapies, supplements, and practitioners they relied on to beat cancer. Once diagnosed, time is of the essence.

Coinbase is under fire for losing crypto through a large number of hacks. According to CNBC, Coinbase is under fire: Cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase started new live phone support in the wake of thousands of customer service complaints. One Los Angeles couple lost about $700,000 from their Coinbase account. The company says it was not responsible for that hack. CNBC interviewed multiple customers who tried the new support option, with some calling it “a joke.” A spokesperson for the cryptocurrency exchange said that it is rolling out more customer support options and that “at no point have attackers breached Coinbase's security infrastructure.” LOS ANGELES – After thousands of customer service complaints, Coinbase started a new live phone support line. But numerous customers remain frustrated with the company after its latest effort to address their concerns. Take Erick and Molly Richardson, for example. The text message on Erick's phone alarmed him so much that he pulled over to the side of the road. It was a sunny afternoon in July. The retired attorney clicked on the message which said someone had logged into his account. He logged on, and soon got an email that his two-factor authentication had been changed, meaning his security settings had likely been compromised. Then the nightmare got worse. He and his wife, Molly, had saved nearly $1.1 million in cryptocurrencies. Suddenly, a fraudster started withdrawing all their bitcoin investments, about $700,000, as Erick watched. And there was nothing he could do.

Welcome to the Determined to Dance podcast with your host, Jennifer Hallmark. Today's episode, Still Determined to Dance, is an impromptu episode on persevering when life gets weird. Are you ready? The world would have us march to its chaotic beat but God invites us to dance in His will and His way. Let's take a moment to be energized, refreshed, and motivated to face the day, one spin and twirl at a time. Show notes: Still Determined to Dance Today's episode is supposed to be about dancing during ordinary times. I had a plan about talking about going on with God and dancing with God when days are just day in and day out ordinary everyday stuff that doesn't seem to be getting us closer to goals or maybe doesn't help us in reaching our goals and the success that maybe we think we need. But life has a way of cutting things off, mainly my internet's been down for several days and I finally have it back today, on the day I normally load my podcast. So, I thought I'd just take some time and talk to you a bit. Talk about dancing when things are not quite what you want them to be. Maybe it is about being ordinary because it seems like, over the last couple of years, life has been ordinary but in a different way than what we want it to be. We still have to stay determined to dance regardless. I think the thing on my mind the most right now is reevaluation. I read this verse recently in Colossians 3:23 of whatever you do, do from the heart. I realize lately that my heart has been kinda tired. I've called it post-covid burnout. I've held so strong and kept moving and kept toward my goals and kept going in the direction I needed to go and that God was leading over the last eighteen months. It's finally catching up with me. I think I've mentioned this before and I don't mean to whine about it (sorry about that) I've reached a place where I'm going to have to stop and reevaluate where I am and what I'm doing and all the things in my life. What is still needful? What is not needful? I believe that's something we need to do, probably twice a year. And I normally do that but over the last couple of years, I haven't done it as I should have. It's going to help me; I think it could help you too. Maybe you're at the place that I'm at, and you need to reevaluate where you are and what's going on. I was listening to an episode of Novel Marketing, one of my favorite podcasts for writers. Thomas Umstattd Jr. talked about reaching a place where basically he said he couldn't even get out of bed and he realized he was way overcommitted. He had kept adding things but hadn't done any subtraction in the process. I tend to be that way; the type of person that thinks I can do it all and feels like I could do it all. Suddenly, I'm so overloaded and I realize, oh, well maybe I can't do it all. Some of you might understand where I'm coming from. So, I'm going to take the next few weeks and I'm going to really evaluate where I am. I'm going to look at everything I do in my writing life, my podcasting life, my blogging, my physical health, my mental health, my spiritual health, of course, and what I do at church, what I do for my family. I think I just need to do a little pruning. Our guest speaker at church last Sunday talked about pruning. And I thought that's where I'm at. I need to do some pruning. There are some things that just need to go. That's the only way I can put it. There are some things that need to go. I've known it for a while, and the rest of the year is going to be low-key for me. I'm waiting to hear from several publishers that have different versions of my book; have actually two books. And the waiting game has been hard. It's been hard on my heart. It's difficult when you wonder, do people like what you wrote? Do people want what you wrote? Or do you need to reevaluate your writing? Do you need to take what you've done and maybe make it better? Do you need to put it aside?

In this episode, Neil & Brittany discuss their upcoming move to North Carolina to pursue self-storage full time and live in a house hack across the street from the beach. In This Episode We Cover: We bought a house across the street from the beach with the intention of doing a house hack “someday maybe” - We will go into more detail on the house in a later episode. What led us to decide to make the move now? First, we call this podcast The Road to Family Freedom. Our goal is financial and location independence. We aren't there yet. But we have achieved a level of independence with our investments that allow us to take this leap, which is a risk, to try an experiment in working for ourselves...while living at the beach. Several things conspired to lead us to this decision: The death of my father in March of 2020. A best friend worked alongside him for 18 years. I realized that so much of my joy of going to work every day came from the experience of getting to be with my dad on a daily basis. Making up for lost time from when he was in the Air Force. I found I missed being able to walk down the hall and tell him something cool I'd just read, or how much fun it was to whine to him about the challenges of being a father, or just getting to go to lunch with him nearly every day. Suddenly going to work every day became a sad reminder of what was no longer there. COVID. Like many people, the pandemic has made us do a lot of soul searching about what's important in life. As we prepared for my father's long-delayed memorial, I was putting together a slideshow of his life. I kept coming back to these pictures of us from a time when we lived near the ocean. My mom and dad both describe those days in Florida as some of the happiest times of their life. Their kids were young, the work was easy, they were surrounded by other families, many of whom became lifelong friends, we lived near the water. I've always had a dream of living near the water, and I'd like to do it while our son is still young. We love house hacking, and we have a lot of experience house hacking with a short-term rental. Right as COVID hit in March of 2020, the short-term rental regulations in Las Vegas finally caught up with us after 6 years. We got shut down. That, combined with concerns over what COVID was going to do to the Las Vegas housing market, caused us to sell our house that we had owned since 2013. We ended up with a healthy chunk of cash from the equity we had accrued. So, we bought a house across the street from the beach with the intention of house hacking it eventually way down the road. Obviously, things changed. My work, since 2003, has been indirectly in support of the war effort in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Global War on Terror. When the war in Afghanistan came to an end, it felt like the end of a chapter for me.  So we sat down, did the math, and discovered we could financially take this risk. We aren't financially free. We don't have the income to sit on the beach all day drinking Pina Coladas. I prefer margaritas or Moscow Mules. But we've got savings and income streams to give us some time to work towards our next chapter.  Follow Us: https://www.facebook.com/roadtofamilyfreedom/ (facebook.com/roadtofamilyfreedom/) https://www.instagram.com/roadtofamilyfreedom/?hl=en (instagram.com/roadtofamilyfreedom/) https://twitter.com/r2familyfreedom (twitter.com/r2familyfreedom) Other Stuff: If you enjoy the podcast, would you please consider leaving a short review on Apple Podcasts/iTunes?

It feels like every aspect of our lives is dominated by tech. It also makes our lives easier in so many ways. But when we lose a loved one, it seems that tech and innovation are absent. Suddenly at a time when you don't want to speak to anyone, you can be thrust into endless calls to arrange a funeral, flowers, closing accounts, removing names from mailing lists, and so much more, Empathy is removing the taboo on death while providing information to help families navigate the logistics of losing a loved one. These are just some things technology excels at, like navigating logistics. Empathy's app combines technology and human support to streamlines end-of-life bureaucracy, minimizes tedious tasks, and automates processes involved in the administration of an estate while also providing emotional guidance. It's a sensitive topic, and today I learn more from Ron Gura about how the collaboration of humans and technology can help when we are trying to go through the grieving process.

He is a highly regarded artist recognized for his box art, which graces the shelves of many celebrities. The box art pieces are often worn as brooches. We'll hear all about his jewelry journey today, but before we do that, I want to thank Lisa Berman of Sculpture to Wear for making it possible for Marc to be with us today. Marc, so glad to have you. Marc: As am I. Thank you for inviting me. Sharon: Great to be with you. Tell us about your jewelry journey. It started with you traveling around the world from what you've said. Tell us about that and how everything worked from there. Marc: I was a 20-year-old young man and I left America, basically, on a freight ship. That's how I started the journey. I have a saying now, which is “Every box art tells a story.” The irony of that is that when I travel, because I was on the road for a very long time, going all over the world, I liked collecting things but I had no place to put them. I found these little, tiny boxes that I used to take candy out of, and when they were empty, I went, “Oh, this is a great thing to put little things inside of.” I already was starting the idea of collecting little objects that I might go back to at some point and use it as a part of the art. But I traveled; I went around the world all the way to India until 1970. Then in 1970, I decided to return to America and relocate myself within the country. Prior to that, I had left in 1966. It was during the Vietnam War.  I was raised in Southern California, so I came back to America and went back to my roots. I have a stepsister, and she had a friend named Tom O'Horgan. Tom O'Horgan is actually very famous in the theater world, primarily because he directed the show on Broadway called “Hair.” He directed many other shows after that, but that is the one he's most known for. In meeting each other for the first time, he asked me about myself, and I said, “I traveled around the world and I don't have any real direction about what I want to do next.” He said, “Well, I need a driver because I'm working on these film projects. Do you drive?” and I said, “Yeah, I drive.” So, he hired me as a driver.  During that period, which was in the mid-70s, I drove him around Los Angeles. I knew Los Angeles like the back of my hand, and we went to all these different studios and met all these different, incredibly famous people; directors, writers and the like, actors and so on and so forth. I was getting a little bit of a background, but what I didn't know at the time, not until many years later, was how I ended up becoming a curator and jewelry maker. I was influenced by the work of Tom O'Horgan. Being a set director, he did plays. The things he worked on in LA ended up getting finished, and he said, “I'm going back to New York. Keep in touch with me. Maybe there's some work for you in New York.”  About six months later, I called him on the phone. He said, “Marc, we're doing this show on Broadway. It's about Lenny Bruce and I have a great job. I'd love you to come and work on it.” I said, “Well, I've never lived in New York, but I do know who Lenny Bruce is. So yeah, I'm coming.” I went to New York and got a room at the Chelsea Hotel. It was during the time of Andy Warhol and a lot of other people living in the Chelsea Hotel. So here I am, in the middle of this incredible epicenter of activity; there was so much different art on the walls of the Chelsea Hotel back in those days, and all these Warhol people and other characters from the avant garde world in New York City. That's the background of how I got to where I got. What I mean is that as a young guy, I didn't know a lot, and I didn't have a lot of background in art per se. I was more like a young guy who was just wandering on the planet, as I said earlier.  So, here I am in New York. I'm in the middle of an epicenter of activity, and Tom says to me, “Well, we're in pre-production for the show, and there are a lot of other things I would like you to do for me.” He gave me a lot of different jobs, and I went around and did that for a while until the show went into production. During those pre-production meetings, he would meet with all these different designers. One of those designers is now a very famous set designer by the name of Robin Wagner. Robin Wagner went on to design “A Chorus Line” and a lot of other incredible Broadway productions. Robin, over the years, became one of my closest friends. The reason I bring him up is because we used to go his studio, which at the time was in a building called 890 Studios, which is owned by Michael Bennett, who was the director of “A Chorus Line.” I'd go to his studio with Tom, and he would have models of shows. I was picking up the incredibly creative process of how you put together an idea for a show and a stage. He would have little characters he would use to put on models of shows. I took note of those little figures, but I kept it hidden in the back of my brain, not knowing anything, nothing preplanned about what I was doing other than being Tom's assistant. We eventually went to Broadway with “Lenny.” “Lenny” opened. It was a big success and for about 30 years, I worked primarily with Tom O'Horgan in theater.  Sharon: Is it Tom O'Horgan? Marc: Yes, it's spelled O-‘-H-o-r-g-a-n. He was an artist. He always considered himself to be one of those people that didn't do things that are the typical Broadway. I mean, when you think about “Hair”—I didn't work on the original. I worked on a later production with Tom, but by that point, I had already worked on “Lenny Bruce,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and so many other amazing things. We did opera. Tom did a lot of things, and Tom's influences and Robin's influences are guides to what I eventually ended up becoming, which is an artist who creates wearable art.  When you think about jewelry, for me, typically jewelry would be semiprecious stones, silver, gold, pearls, all that kind of stuff. I'm not the kind of creator or designer that would even know where to start to put those things together. I love beads. In the 60s, I made my own beads and necklaces, but I didn't see that as where I wanted to go. Because of my memory of the stage and theater and stories—when I told you earlier about the boxes, during the period I was living in New York, I collected a lot of things in my little East Village apartment.  I happened to be downtown in the Soho area; I was down on Canal Street. I was walking along the street, and all the shops had things out in front of them for sale. I walked by, and there were empty boxes and lots of other things. I was just motivated to buy them, so I bought them. I brought them back to my apartment and I was sitting at my little worktable looking at all these objects. I'm thinking, “Maybe I could make something out of this. I know that this coming year, Tom has this big Christmas party, and usually he's the guy who gives everybody something unique for a present.” There I was, looking at all these things, and I looked at the little box and glued a little figure I had inside the box. For example, this is a box. It's an empty one. Sharon: Like an acrylic, plastic box. Marc: A plastic box, an acrylic plastic box. Most people would take this box. It has a lid. They would put anything in it, but they didn't think they could put a whole story together. When I put the little figures in the box like that, and it has a lid and I put it like that, then I have a box with people standing in front of it, but they're sort of looking through. What are they looking at? I started to figure out I needed to have an image to tell the story. This is the World Trade Center. Sharon: So, you're creating little worlds inside the box. Marc: Right. Since I started the idea in 1985, I have made thousands, and out of those thousands, many of them are one-of-a-kind. How I can I put it? Because of my traveling and because I'm a very sentimental guy—with these boxes, the little characters can't talk; they're little plastic figures. They only way you could tell the story, as jewelry tells a story, is by what you put behind them. So, in this case, I put the World Trade Center. I had a little character standing there looking at it. I actually made this before the World Trade Center fell down.  My meaning of all of this is that it was something in the beginning I was aware of. The one I'm wearing on my lapel—this one is a door. There's a woman standing, looking not at us; she's looking towards the doorway. Anybody who would come up and look at my work, they would say, “Wow, that is amazing! Where did you get that?” This is how it started and how I got into fashion. “Where did you get that?” and I said, “Well, I made it.” And they said, “Really? Where can I get one?” And I said, “You can buy this one.” In the beginning, I used to sell right off my lapel. I love dressing. Double-breasted suits are my favorite attire, so I would have a box on my lapel. As I said, I would go all over New York City to openings, plays and the like. At openings and galleries and museums or wherever I went, people from across the gallery, they would see me dressed and see this thing on my lapel, curious to what it is. They would walk up to me. They wouldn't even look at me; they would look right at the box and go, “Oh my god, what is that?” When I said, “Well, it's a box and I made it,” they would go, “Wow! I want it.”  It got me to the point where—this is the most interesting thing—many years later, after traveling and having lived in Israel—one of the places I did live—after about 25 years, I decided to go back there for a visit. I had friends that had immigrated to Israel, and some of my friends were there to stay. I went to visit them, and they all are in the arts. When I was there, one day they said, “Why don't we go to the Israel Museum up in Jerusalem?” I was in Tel Aviv staying with them. We go up to Jerusalem. I was wearing a box. I'm walking around the Israel Museum—this is so amazing to me—and a woman from across the room, a very tiny lady, walks up to me. She says the same thing many other people said: “Wow! What is that? Where did you get that?” I said, “Well, I made it,” as I said earlier.  The point of it is that these boxes have a story in them. For me, every story leads into another. How I mean that is that a person who I don't even know comes up to me, looks at my work; they're inspired by it; they talk about it; they tell me things about it that I've never myself, as the creator of it, imagined how significant it was or what it meant to them. As in theater, as in my relationship to Tom O'Horgan—who broke the fourth wall when he did “Hair” on Broadway—during the period I was creating these, people in New York and probably everywhere else didn't exactly walk up to each other and start a conversation with strangers. I had the object that changed all that, and I had not realized that until I started going out and wearing them.  Getting back to Israel, this woman, who I later found out was named Tammy Schatz, she was the curator of one of the wings in the Israel Museum. She invites me the next day to come and sit and talk with them, because they were planning this show and exhibition the following year called “Heroes.” So, I went back the next day. I sat with her and bunch of other people and they started telling me what they were planning. They said, “Well, you're an American, and you must know a lot about American pop culture. You know Superman and Batman and all the stuff like that,” and I said, “Yeah, I do.” Once they learned I worked in theater and designed sets—because by this point, I was not only making little box sets, I was also making large set pieces for shows. I have also done installations and the like. So, they invited me based on an illustration I sent to them. The next year, I went back to Israel, and I did this 10-feet-high, 25-feet-long three-dimensional cityscape. It was boxes, another version of boxes. It goes on and on from there, Sharon. It's always been fascinating me, how these boxes have gotten me into all kinds of great trouble. As I continue to say, every box tells a story. Sharon: We'll have pictures of the boxes when we post the podcast, but I want to describe it to people. These are small. What, two by two?  Marc: Two-inch square, three quarters of an inch deep. When you buy them, they're empty; they don't have anything except the lid and the box. I basically invented an idea; up to that point, I never saw anybody else doing what I was doing. Later on, I found that I inspired other people's creativity. There was these little boxes, and every picture tells a story. A picture's worth a thousand words. Sharon: Marc, before all this happened, before you befriended Tom and he befriended you, did you consider yourself artistic or creative? Was that a field you wanted to pursue? Marc: Kind of. I didn't literally say, “Wow, I'm an artist! I'm going to create.” When I was a young guy growing up—I grew up in Philadelphia until I was about 13. My father and mother were in the beauty business. My father was a very well-known women's hairdresser. He had his own beauty parlor. My parents were beatniks back in the 50s in Philadelphia. They were very artistic people, and all their friends were very artistic. When you're a 13, 14-year-old, it doesn't register, “Oh, I'm going to grow up to be like my parents,” but they are influences. They all wore black all the time, and as I was growing up, that was my look; I wear all black. I'm going to high school during the 60s, and it's all surfers and bleach blond hair, and here comes me with skin-tight black pants and Beatle boots and cravats. Kids who were friends, they would come up and say, “Who are you? What do you think you're doing? You must be an artist.” The idea stuck, but as I said about journeys through life, the fascinating thing for me is that I could go around the world, have all these different things happening in my 20s, return to New York and be on this journey where I'm still at.  I know your podcast has to do with why we're here: to talk about jewelry. I came up with a way for people to wear jewelry that has a story in it and it isn't just a beautiful necklace. Most of my clients over the years have been women, and women know something much more than men know about wearing an object that attracts attention. Women know how to find beautiful objects and adorn themselves, whether it's a necklace or earrings or the like. What I also found was interesting—and this actually happened; I neglected to mention this, but at one point when I stopped doing theater with Tom and only focused on making box art, I ended up becoming a street artist.  I was selling in the beginning to every major department store, and I was getting orders for thousands of boxes that I had to come up with. I was a one-man factory, so I was pulling my hair out of my head thinking, “How the hell am I going to get all these boxes out?” Eventually I discovered there's no way I can be a manufacturer of these things; they're all one-of-a-kind. I'm not going to make 12 of the same thing. A friend of my said, “There's a street fair down on Broadway. Maybe you should go there and sell on the street.” That opened a doorway, like this doorway that's on my lapel, into a world that I have never been able to look back on. What I mean by that is that once I discovered going to Soho, which was in the early stages of its evolution to become an epicenter for artists, many of them very famous—Keith Haring, David Hockney, the list is incredible of the people that were living in Soho during this period.  I went down there; on West Broadway there were very few artists, and I was one of them. I would be standing there all dressed, and people would be walking up and down the street. It was the most incredible way for them to find out if I was marketing what I had on my lapel. People would walk by, they'd see this guy with a fedora all in black, wearing a box, and they'd be curious. “What's he wearing?” They'd come up. They wanted to ask me a about them and how much they were. They would say, “I'll take that one, that one and that one,” and that used to happen to me constantly. I never could make enough. The thousands I had made that never got sold in department stores were being sold like crazy on the streets of Soho. I started to get a reputation as the box man. One of the clients that bought from me called me the box man. There were times I would go down to Soho in the early morning on Saturday or Sunday, and there were people milling around where I would stand, waiting for me. They would go, “Here comes the box man.” It was crazy.  Among all those people, some of the people that stopped and looked at my work were people like David Hockney. David Hockney actually came up to me one day, after a lot of people walked away buying my stuff, and he was looking at them real close up. He started talking to me and giving me suggestions about what I could do with them and how I could display them. He said, “You've got this little box. Where are you going to put it? Maybe you should put it in something, like a frame?” That was the most incredibly brilliant selling idea for my boxes. What I did with the frame idea, when I figured out how to do it—there are many of them behind me; they're all frames. The idea was that you can wear it, but you can also put it on your wall, and your wall can wear your art. I made it so the frame had an opening in it that the box sat inside of. If you're going out to an opening or a fashion show or something like that, “I think tonight I'll wear one of the Marc Cohens.” That was the idea, and that took off like crazy from there.  I have to also tell you I didn't have any agents. I didn't have a rep or anything like that. The only rep I had was Marc Cohen. So, it was a cool journey through art. I evolved the idea of being an artist selling on the street, where I just had an easel, to having a pushcart. It was like immigrants coming to America way, way back, my family being some of them that went to Philadelphia. My great, great grandmother, she had a pushcart on South Street in Philadelphia. It's another part of the story of jewelry. It bridged into me getting even more known.  I went back to California where I grew up. I found that in Santa Monica, they had a promenade they were developing. They actually had people with carts they rented they would put out on the promenade. I found out I could rent carts, so I rented one and came up with this idea. It actually came from people on the street. People would walk by and say, “Wow, you're like a tiny gallery with all your art.” I came up with this name, the World's Smallest Art Gallery. I took the cart and turned it into a miniature to scale, like if you went into a gallery, but it was open to the people to see it from all different sides. I had walls and characters that were larger than the ones in my boxes. They were standing looking at the art. It was all on that level; it was very interactive. People would walk by, and there would be a lot of celebrities all the time on the street. Suddenly, not only was it regular people buying work, not only David Hockney, but very famous people in Hollywood. Along the way, I reconnected with a friend of mine who was very famous, Paula Wagner. She's now very famous for being a producer with Tom Cruise; they had a company called Cruise Wagner. She's a friend of mine from all the way back to the “Lenny” days. We rekindled our friendship in LA. She knows everybody in Hollywood, and once she saw my work, she flipped out and said, “We've got to do something with this.” She hired me, and the first thing I did for her was wearable box art in a frame. It was for Oliver Stone.  Sharon: I'm sorry, who it was for? I didn't hear. Marc: Oliver Stone the director. Sharon: Oliver Stone, oh wow!  Marc: She also represented Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise and Demi Moore. Before you know it, she's asking me if I can make a box for this person, on and on. The biggest thing for me at the time was Madonna. I knew Madonna from a long time ago. When I say I knew her, I lived in New York in the early 70s and 80s, and I used to go to all these clubs. I would go to this one called Danceteria. At the time, Madonna was a coat check girl there, and eventually she did a show there, which I saw with a bunch of my friends. Then she went on to do whatever she wanted on her own.  Somehow or another, a friend of hers bought one my pieces to give to her as a gift, but this is the best part of it. I didn't know this until much later on. One night in LA, I went to this private photo exhibition; it was a photographer who had done all the photography for Rudi Gernreich, the fashion designer with those bathing suits. I'm going to the exhibition with friends. I had my box on my lapel. I'm walking around and it's a tiny, little gallery, so people don't follow each other—everybody goes wherever they're going. A bunch of people are coming that way and we're walking, walking, walking. We come to this one, most famous photograph of a topless model. I'm looking at photograph, and standing next to me is Madonna. I turn and right away, she looks at me and goes, “I have one of those boxes.” I said, “I'm the artist. I made it,” and she said to me, “I Iove that box and I have it right by my bed,” and I said, “Oh, how cool.” She asked me a few questions and I filled her in on my background. I didn't bring up the fact that I remember her from Danceteria.  Then it was like an avalanche. I got picked up by Maxfield's Clothing Store in LA when I started the frames. Everybody saw how cool it is as an art piece, but you can wear it. Maxfield loved what I was doing, and he took me on and carried my stuff in his store. This is another amazing thing: the dresser for Arsenio Hall was in the store one day buying things for him to wear on the show. I don't know whether it was a man or a woman, but they bought an outfit for Arsenio, and the salesperson said, “We just got this new wearable art piece in. You've got to see this.” They looked at it and bought one. That night on the Arsenio Hall Show—if you ever watch his talk show, there's intro music, and then the curtain goes away and he stands there; it's Arsenio Hall. On that particular night, he's standing there, wearing a collarless Armani suit, and on his jacket is a square.  From a distance you can't tell what it is. I found out this afterwards. I got the tape. It was amazing; he didn't himself know what it really was, but he came out and the camera zooms up on him. When I saw what the box was, I got a chill. It was a period where I started to not just do people standing in the box, looking at the image or looking out away from the image; it was a period where I was putting images up against the face, so it would be a three-dimensional idea. In this particular one, it was Martin Luther King. I had done part of his face in profile in the foreground, and then I had done some backdrop. It had something to do about racial issues.  I didn't just make cutesy box art. I really am not about cutesy box art. I'm very passionate about a lot of things in life. I'm very political about certain things, and I want people to have an opportunity to talk with each other about things that are meaningful, particularly where we live these days. It's important to have that doorway of how people get through it and interact with each other without being sensitive and thinking you're going to be judged by whatever they say or do. We are in a period where people have to be careful about that. So, it amazes me that this tool—because it is a tool—is, in a way, much different than things made by other jewelry designers that Lisa Berman curates or represents. That is mostly what Lisa represents, like Robert Lee Morris. I knew Robert Lee Morris personally. He's a genius and he's a friend. Thomas Mann is one of my closest friends. I'm friends with others as well because of how we interact with each other.  The image is what it's about. It's how the characters are placed within the box. Along the way, I started thinking, “I want to get out even more than what I've done. I want to try to make work even more original.” We live in a period where they have this thing called a 3D printer. It prints pretty much anything. I can create a series of my own characters, which is something I always wanted to do. I've only just started doing this. I started developing this idea, where I custom make three-dimensional boxes on this scale and a much larger scale. That's where I'm headed. I have lots of collectors. They would be more than happy if I started making little box art again. My newest work is much larger. I make boxes now that are 20 feet big, installation pieces.  Sharon: They're hard to wear. Marc: They're hard to wear, right? I know your program is primarily about jewelry. The thing about that, though, is what I am planning to do. When I do have that exhibition, the large-scale Marc Cohen box art exhibition, I will have miniatures of that exhibition, like many other people do when they market things. The Van Gogh Experience—I don't know if you've seen this, but there's a thing on the road right now that's video mapping Van Gogh's paintings on a building. When you go to the gift shop, they've marketed Van Gogh's work to death. I would do something similar as a collectable.  I had Sotheby's in London; they heard about me through our people in Israel. I was invited to do this big exhibition at Sotheby's. It's a big auction and a silent auction. I got commissioned to make three boxes with lights. There weren't any more wearable, but I did that, and it sold for the equivalent to $10,000. Suddenly, my prices are changing. The people that bought my boxes on the street from the beginning—it's embarrassing to say—but when I first started selling them, my boxes were $20. They're no longer $20. They have been selling at auction for a lot more than $20. Now there's talk about me in way that I never, ever imagined, and it's joyful.

As the flight from Denver to Phoenix was landing, I was not feeling well. Suddenly, my body got cold, and my head felt like it was in a bubble.

Questions about God suddenly caring about unborn babies, whether it's hypocritical to support freedom of choice for the vaccine but not abortion, and responding to the argument that an aborted fetus has not died because it doesn't receive a death certificate. After God murdered Bathsheba's newborn, killed the firstborn sons of Egypt, sent bears to murder children, and commanded Joshua to kill the kids in Jericho, now he suddenly cares about unborn babies?  Is it hypocritical to support freedom of choice in the vaccine debate but be against freedom of choice in the abortion debate?

Episode 424 - Show NotesGiants come in all shapes and sizes. I've never met a person who didn't battle their own giants, and for most of us, this giant has a name. His name is fear.When we focus our attention on the obstacles rather than the objective, fear will overcome our faith. This can easily happen to us, can't it? We focus our eyes on the problem, the difficulty, the obstacle, or the giant. Suddenly, we become convinced we cannot move forward.When we keep our eyes on Jesus, our giants lose their size and their power in comparison to our great God. I've discovered that fear, anxiety, worry, and despair all melt away in the presence of God.Knowing the victory has been promised, you and I have a choice to make. Will we let fear keep us from what God has given us or will we step out in faith to possess it?Let's conquer the giants of fear and live in the victory Jesus provides.Numbers 12:32-33 - “All the people we saw there are of great size. We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”Hebrews 12:2 says, “Fix your eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”1 Corinthians 15:57 - “thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”5Minute Discipleship.com

Shifting your mindset and approaching your work differently can have a big impact on your success. Hear insights about: How Sarah found her way to real estate after leaving her role as a stay-at-home mom, and why the flexibility of real estate was idea for Sarah Why Sarah realized that shifting your mindset can have a big impact on your success, and why adding work-life separation was an important and life-changing shift Why working with the right coach made a huge difference in Sarah's work and life, and why hiring an assistant was transformational for her work What work Sarah's assistant has taken over, and how the free time allows Sarah to work on her business rather than just in it How Sarah reviews her business to determine what's working and what isn't, and why maintaining the right focus has been a key to her success Why Sarah tackles her social media strategy with intentionality, and how she has carved out a niche in her market with her social media How Sarah evaluates where to best put her attention and focus in her business to maximize her impact and happiness Why staying committed to her goals and following “standard over emotion” are big parts of Sarah's plans for her business going forward Shifting Your Mindset in Real Estate When you're just starting out as a real estate agent, it can be easy to fall into the trap of always having to “do more, work harder, keep longer hours”. But then you start to see some success, and you get entrenched into that mindset out of fear of failure or of disappointing others. Suddenly, work/life balance is gone completely and you're running yourself ragged! However, it doesn't have to be this way! By shifting your mindset, approaching your work differently, and adding the right systems and resources, you can free up time to work on your business, spend more time with your family, and carve out some precious “me time” for yourself. This week's guest is Sarah Allen, a successful Arizona-based Realtor who has only been in the business since 2017 and who has carved out a successful niche for herself in her market. Sarah left her career as a stay-at-home mom and entered real estate because she was attracted by the flexibility, but she quickly fell into the trap of working more and more to keep up with things. However, this wasn't sustainable and Sarah decided to make some big shifts. She put boundaries in place to avoid her work life bleeding into her personal time, she hired an assistant and began offloading some of the day-to-day work… and it made a huge difference to her happiness and her success! Shifting Your Mindset and Seeing Your Work in a New Light It can be so easy to burn yourself out, and that's why it's important to recognize the fear that is the root of your instinct to grind harder. When you're first starting out, the fear comes from not knowing what you're capable of or whether you've made the right career decision. Then the fear comes from worrying about disappointing the people you serve or losing the momentum you've built in your business. However, so often those fears are unfounded and only hold you back from finding the right balance between work time and personal time. Sarah was afraid of hiring an assistant; she was afraid that the person she hired wouldn't do the job as well as she could do it herself. However, a nudge from Sarah's coach was all it took to take the plunge, and after a few months of getting everything synced up, Sarah's assistant has become a powerful asset that allows Sarah to work on the business instead of getting bogged down in the busy-ness. Finding a Balance So much of your success comes from how you see your work. If it's just a necessary grind that takes up too much of your precious time, that can drain you of energy and motivation. But if you work to streamline your tasks and make the most of your time, instead your work can motivate and energize you! By putting the right systems, processes and people in place, you can do more of the work that truly makes a difference and moves the needle for your business. As Sarah learned, a great assistant can make a world of difference by taking over some of the energy-draining tasks you would otherwise have to do yourself!

And as always, check out www.pursuingfreedom.com for other great podcast episodes and interviews with industry professionals! About Sarah Allen, in her own words: “As a licensed Arizona Realtor, my goal is to make every interaction a positive experience by servicing my clients to the best of my ability. I love living in Prescott with my husband, and our feisty 6-year-old girl, and sweet 3-year-old boy; they push us to our limits both professionally and emotionally. I enjoy the outdoors, biking, and exploring this great area, but most importantly, I love the small town vibe Prescott offers. Our town is nicknamed everybody's hometown, and that's the #1 reason for why I love living here. Prescott brings a sense of community to every resident, and the wonderful people that make up our small town truly believe in building quality relationships that last. My background is rooted in sports; I developed a love for golf at a young age, and my first career choice was playing professionally. Although I was good enough to play collegiately on a full-ride scholarship, my passion for ‘playing' turned into a passion for ‘coaching.' Shortly after graduating from Arizona State University with a BA in Business Communications at the W.P. Carey School of Business, I turned to coaching the Boys Golf Team at Estrella Foothills High School – my alma mater – while also working every job in the golf industry. This continued until my husband and I became parents to our wonderful daughter, Autumn. Transitioning to a stay-at-home Mom was the driving force for me to become a Realtor. It gave me the sense of accomplishment I desired, and continues to help shape the life I wanted for myself, and my family.” How to Connect With Sarah Allen: Website: www.sarahallenrealtor.com LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/sarah-allen-12044a17b/ LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/lakeway-realty/ Facebook: www.facebook.com/sarahallenprescott Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/sarahallenrealtor/ Balanced Growth Course: Website: https://pursuingfreedom.thinkific.com/courses/balanced-growth Additional Resources: Set for Success Planner Time Tracker 5-Step Guide to More Referrals

Bible Reading: Psalm 86:8-12Elijah sat at the kitchen table tapping the screen of his tablet. "What are you doing?" asked his older sister, Bella."Our teacher at church gave us some homework," Elijah explained. "He's going to give a prize to whoever finds the most names for God used in the Bible, but I haven't found very many." Suddenly he brightened. "Hey, maybe you can help me. Don't you learn that kind of stuff in Bible college?" Elijah looked hopefully at his sister. "Mr. Benson doesn't care where we get our information, just that we learn." "Well, how about the Good Shepherd?" Bella asked. "Do you have that?""Nope!" Elijah eagerly wrote it down. "Can you think of any more?""There's several in the New Testament," said Bella. "In the book of John, Jesus talks about being the True Vine and the Door.""Oh yeah! I've already got some others from the book of John where Jesus says He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.""Right!" Bella pulled out her phone to look up more verses. "Isaiah 9:6 mentions a lot of names for God. In that verse He's called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace."Elijah was writing the names down as fast as he could. "Any others?" he asked.Bella smiled. "How about Alpha and Omega?" "Alpha and Omega?" Elijah asked doubtfully. Quoting an expression their mom often used when she didn't understand something, he said, "That's Greek to me!"Bella laughed. "Those words are Greek, Elijah! Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters in the Greek alphabet. Used as names for Jesus, they mean He's the beginning and the end of everything. He always was and always will be.""Cool!" said Elijah as he wrote Alpha and Omega on his paper."Yes, that is cool," Bella agreed. "And it's cool that God is everything the other names for Him suggest too. He's our mighty God and our everlasting Father who loves us so much He sent His Son, Jesus, to be the door to eternal life and bring us peace."Elijah looked at his list, then smiled at his sister. "Thanks, Bella. If I win the prize at church, I'll share it with you!" -Lenora McWhortenHow About You?How many of God's names do you know? Think about what each one of them represents. For instance, a counselor is someone who can help you when you're faced with a difficult situation, and God is called Wonderful Counselor, which means we can trust Him to help us and guide us through life's difficulties. Learning the names of God and what they mean will help you understand who He is and how much He loves you. Today's Key Verse: Lord, there is no one like you! For you are great, and your name is full of power. (NLT) (Jeremiah 10:6)Today's Key Thought:Learn who God is

Ever since Texas became a state, the Rio Grande has been the border between the U.S. and Mexico. But rivers can move — and that's exactly what happened in 1864, when torrential rains caused it to jump its banks and go south. Suddenly the border was in a different place, and Texas had gained 700 acres of land called the Chamizal, named after a plant that grew in the area. The Chamizal was a thorn in the side of U.S.–Mexico relations for a century until Sept. 25, 1964, when the U.S. finally gave part of the land back to Mexico. But by that time, roughly 5,000 people had moved to the area and made it their home.

The introduction, improved performance, and “free” nature of the internet upended every business model of sports consumption. Suddenly, all the content you paid for individually was at your fingertips with only an internet bill to pay for it. Magazines went online, struggled to maintain subscriptions, and several shut down permanently. As time went on and streaming apps became prominent even ESPN's media empire faced diminished profits as consumers started cutting the cords to bloated cable bundles. Newspapers got it the worst of anyone. In 2006, there were 74,410 people employed in the newspaper industry. By 2020, that number was cut in more than half to a total of 30,820. The sports section was not immune from those trends and several prominent beat writers with large online followings were shown the door.

COVID-19's effect on the world caused schools and educators to have to make lots of changes. Suddenly we had to wear face masks, keep ourselves socially distanced, shift to virtual classrooms, and so many more changes. The school landscape looked quite different. How do we stay connected with our students was a frequent question and topic of conversation for many educators. That inspired me to interview John Young to explore connection as educators with a grounding in the inside-out nature of life.John grew up and went to college in Ireland, where he studied engineering. After moving to the US, John worked in different businesses before deciding to make a career change into education. Over 10 years ago he found his way into his first classroom as a substitute teacher and has never looked back. John is the founder of Clear Calm Living, a platform dedicated to supporting heart-centered professionals - those who do the emotional work that uplifts others, by helping them understand how they can bring more joy back into their lives. I really enjoy talking with John because he has a unique ability to understand and explain how the mind works. In our conversation for this episode, we talked, as educators about our experiences teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic and how understanding how our human experience is created from the inside-out helped us with our connection with our students.Even though John and I talked about connection through the lens of our experiences as teachers, this episode is for everyone, no matter your background or occupation. The essence of connection is universal. It's only our felt experience of connection that comes and goes. Sometimes we just have so many thoughts that block us from feeling connected, but our connection with each other is always there.You can find out more about John and his work at his website, clearcalmliving.com.

Seeing as the unknown company was paying millions to advertise at such a high-level stage, Chris imagined that it must be a reliable company. So after a few days, he decided to do some basic investigation and found out it was a Chinese green energy company dealing with solar panels. It was one of the biggest solar panel producers and had unsigned contracts in the pipeline all over Asia. Chris thought this must be an excellent investment, especially because the stock was marked as undervalued. He went ahead and bought stocks worth several thousands of dollars. About two, three days later, the stock rose, and it was a fantastic investment. After that, Chris didn't pay much attention for the next few weeks. Suddenly, the stock plummeted day after day. Chris is not a panic seller, so he held onto the stock and waited for it to recover. But unfortunately, for this stock, it kept going down and never recovered. In fact, after about nine months from the day he bought the stock, the company ceased to exist, and he lost all the money he had invested. This remains his worst investment ever. Lessons learnedYou have to scrutinize what you invest in thoroughly. What security do you have if the company defaults? Do thorough research of companies that you want to invest in more so if they are new. Andrew's takeawaysJust because a company can afford to be out there doesn't mean anything. Big companies can fail, and sometimes they can fail fast. If you invest in the overall stock market, it's going to go down at times, but it's going to recover. But with individual stocks, some of them can go down and never recover. Actionable adviceInvest only in companies that are in industries that you understand really well. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsChris's number one goal for the next 12 months is to ensure his new company gets a decent foothold and build a good reputation. He also hopes that COVID will finally be over sooner or later so people can go back to traveling and enjoying themselves.   [spp-transcript]   Connect with Chris Franzenhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/chrisfranzen/ (LinkedIn) https://ckfranzen.com/social-%26-blog (Blog) https://ckfranzen.com/ (Website) Andrew's bookshttps://amzn.to/3qrfHjX (How to Start Building Your Wealth Investing in the Stock Market) https://amzn.to/2PDApAo (My Worst Investment Ever) https://amzn.to/3v6ip1Y (9 Valuation Mistakes and How to Avoid Them) https://amzn.to/3emBO8M (Transform Your Business with Dr.Deming's 14 Points) Andrew's online programshttps://valuationmasterclass.com/ (Valuation Master Class) https://academy.astotz.com/courses/how-to-start-building-your-wealth-investing-in-the-stock-market...

Is our God supernatural or not? Is He true to His Word or not? What does it look like for us to advance heaven and stop hell? That requires much more than a natural response to problems; that requires a supernatural response. It's time for us to respond to problems with God's authority and power. It's time for us to be more than the assembled gathering; we are called to be an assembled army. What does it truly look like for us to be the bride of Christ, the family of God, the body of Christ, the temple of God, and the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth? Lastly, it's time for us to pray for and see the "and suddenly" moments in life (see Acts 16:25-26). Let's pray for all the doors to be opened immediately and for everyone's bonds to be unfastened.

Colleen Conti 6 The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, fastened with two chains between two soldiers. Others stood guard at the prison gate. 7 Suddenly, there was a bright light in the cell, and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter. The angel struck him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick! Get up!” And the chains fell off his wrists. 8 Then the angel told him, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.” And he did. “Now put on your coat and follow me,” the angel ordered. 9 So Peter left the cell, following the angel. But all the time he thought it was a vision. He didn't realize it was actually happening. 10 They passed the first and second guard posts and came to the iron gate leading to the city, and this opened for them all by itself. So they passed through and started walking down the street, and then the angel suddenly left him.

Nine years ago, when 6 week-old Corey was admitted to the hospital for generalized weakness, everyone assumed that he had some sort of infection. His mother, Stephanie, thought that he would get some medication, maybe some IV fluids and then she would be able to take her little boy home again. On the third day of his hospitalization, however, Stephanie overheard a few residents talking. She heard the use the term, 'SMA' for the first time. A young doctor started a sentence with the words, 'if he lives to 6 months' and 'if he lives to a year.'  Suddenly, Stephanie's life was turned up-side-down. Corey did indeed have SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) and he actually did not live to see 6 months. When Corey was born, a diagnosis of SMA was a death sentence. Only months after Corey was born, clinical trials for a treatment for SMA were developed. Now, that medication is so successful in treating SMA that we are really nearing the day that these children will live with SMA and not die from it. Since Corey's death, Stephanie has done so much to support this cause. She was instrumental in getting SMA testing on the newborn screen in the state of Ohio. She speaks to groups nationally as well. I know that after losing a child, I want to do anything that I can to prevent another parent from feeling my same pain. Stephanie feels the same way and her work has truly helped prevent some many deaths. Today, we talk about her work in the Cure SMA organization, but we also discuss her personal grief journey as well. Stephanie talks about the pain of returning home without her baby boy in her arms. We discuss learning to help her then 5 year old daughter grieve in an open, honest way and the pain that comes with watching our children grieve. Now, so many years later, there are fewer and fewer people who remember baby Corey, and that makes some days even harder than in the beginning. It certainly make those who remember and understand the lasting pain all the more precious.

At 32, writer/musician Mishka Shubaly could have stepped out of a Bukowski novel.  Then, after nearly twenty years of hard drinking, he quit cold turkey.  A few months after getting sober,  he ran five miles: “My life seemed to shift a few degrees.  New possibilities had only been negative for a long time - it was possible that I would wind up in rehab; it was possible that I would wind up in jail.  Suddenly some invisible divider had cracked and then shattered.  It was now possible that I could do good things, too.” Within a year he ran his first ultra marathon. His bestseller, The Long Run, is a raw, yet often humorous, chronicle of his substance abuse and becoming a runner. Mishka no longer has "one foot in the gutter and the other in the grave."  On this week's episode, he shares his thoughts on religion, education, getting older, and of course, running. I made it as as honest and ugly as my experience had been, and when I when I turned it in, I was like, this is going to f***ing destroy any writing career that I have because I copped to so much. Because there's just so much filth and weakness, and then the response that I got was wild. When his editor suggested that he write about becoming a runner, Mishka was less than enthusiastic. “I didn't want to write about my transformation,” he says, “because in 2011 that was an old story and I was like, “no it's b**s***.  I'm not gonna write another one of those Lifetime made-for-TV movies. You know, the guy learns to run and then figures out all these relationships and it ends with this sort of rosy hued sunset and the family reunites, because it's b***s***, you know? And that's not what it's like.”  That wasn't what his editor had in mind.  He wanted him to write about finding himself trapped in the inspirational narrative against his will.  So that's what Mishka gave him, and the response was overwhelming. We root for the underdog, and in people's mistakes and weakness and vulnerability, we see our own. Mishka's brutal honesty about his life empowers readers and audience members to share their own stories with him. “Men will come up to me after shows and just reveal stuff to me where I'm like, “keep your voice down; this is a secret,” you know? And it's an honor to be entrusted with those secrets. And also it's a f***ing drag because they're like “oh, thank God, I got that off my chest.” And I'm like, “yeah, you got it on to mine.” I realized that I had felt so alone and so isolated and that was my own invention in my head. People didn't necessarily relate to his circumstances, but his struggles spoke to them.  It came as a surprise:  “I had no idea that there were so many other people like me out there and now whenever I go to a race -  not necessarily a 5K or something, but whenever you go to an ultra - and looking at the starting line, it's like, “what's up, you f***ing degenerates? You know everybody here has some awesome, horrible secret and that's what's driving you to run 100 miles, 50 miles, 50K, whatever it is, that, ‘we're here because we're not all there.'” Running is limitless, it's boundless, and that is the hippiest thing that I will say on this podcast.  Mishka describes his relationship with running in the same way that others describe their relationship with God:  “I know that running is always there, it exists constantly whether I'm there participating or not ...  it will always be there for me, it will always be available to me ... it's sort of like air, it's just everywhere, it's all around us, and we don't see itbecause it's all around us, not because it's not there.” I will fight to my dying breath to say that people who take on the burden of educating themselves through any means, it doesn't need to be university, but it needs to be something where you interrogate your own beliefs, that that's an honorable pursuit and that it does make you a better human being.  Running isn't the only thing in the air.  So is anti-intellectualism, at least in the United States, and it's an attitude that he despises. “It's hard to go to school. It's hard to get an education. It's hard to take on that challenge of learning, to say, ‘here's a thing that I don't know, that I don't understand.'” We can't go back and bring back the wisdom that we've acquired, we can't go back and leave the wisdom that we've acquired.  Knowledge, of course, comes not only from education but also from experience.  Despite the pitfalls of getting older - as Mishka says, “if you live long enough, you'll turn into the creepy old dude at the rock concert” - he wouldn't go back in time to be his younger self.  Experience has taught him the value of doing things that don't garner accolades, like making sure that his cat and dog are happy and know that he loves them, even though, as he says, “I can't brag to anybody, ‘I ranked second in my age division, competitive cat petting. I'm an ultra petter.'” I'm trying to just do little things where there's no finish line, there's no cheering spectators, there's no award, literally the only reward is in doing it.  Resources: Mishka's website Mishka's Facebook Mishka's Instagram Mishka's Twitter The Long Run Thank you to Athletic Greens, Tracksmith, and Picky Bars for sponsoring this episode.
